It's exactly like every other drama on television. I signed up for a zombie show and ended up with the same insufferable characters bitching and moaning their way through the same human drama tripe, and maybe once in a while a couple zombies shamble on screen. Show is fucking awful.

Right but if you expect someone to make a TV show out of just the action bits with zombies then you're going to be sorely disappointed. You can't do seasons of foraging and counting bullet inventory. You can't make that show for longer than a handful of episodes because people want the human element, not John the Samurai wannabe cutting up zeds with a katana. That might be comical for a 2 hour movie like Zombieland but it can't work for a TV season.

The trouble is that they started out mixing both fairly well but it really devolved part way through the first season. The second season has been nigh unwatchable until the last episode or two. I get what people's problems are with it, you act like I said its the best show on television or something. It has some great elements and it has some laughably bad elements, its a very divisive show. I think the characterization itself is very solid and the actors range from ok to good but the writing has always been dreadful.
