THE WALKING DEAD: SEASON 2 Mid-Season Finale Ends With A Bang & Strong Ratings

New postby BooMan » Mon Nov 28, 2011 11:01 pm

Is there a better time to be a horror fan? The answer for me is a resounding no! While the big studios struggle to make huge profits with horror and the cineplex television has become a new home for horror hounds and Bidites everywhere. The Walking Dead season 2 started off with a barrage of questions that were left unanswered. How would the show operate with the firing of producer Frank Darabont. Would the cast respond to all the changes that took place to the writing staff? Well after last nights mid-season finale fans like myself finally got our answer. And the answer left my mouth open and begging for more.

Not only did the second season pause with a strong episode 7 it pulled in insanely high ratings to the tune of over 6.6 million viewers. While this wasn't the season finale, the show will pick up right were it left off in February on 2012, the ending proved once again that while fans might not be treated to an all out zombie fest, the true story lies in great storytelling and the tugging of emotions as season 7 ends with one of the best climaxes I have seen on film and TV in a long time.

The show has no where to go but up in my opinion and while The Walking Dead may have its detractors, it's strong ratings prove that the masses, including non die-hard horror geeks such as myself, can be pulled in with great narrative and even greater displays of "walkers" being dispatched in droves.

With FX's American Horror Story doing equally as well the future for horror on the "boob tube" looks to be brighter than ever and gives hope that horror can finally strive while having lulls at theaters. No longer is horror something that needs to be centered around October or Halloween, now we can experience great storytelling and gripping horror at home where many of us enjoy it in gorgeous 1080P and surround sound systems that revival some of the multiplexes.

If you're not a fan of The Walking Dead this last episode may be enough to pull you in. Don't expect thousands of mindless zombies walking around, expect detailed storytelling and beautiful character development that literally puts you on the farm with Rick and the others as the world has literally gone to hell.

Frank Darabont may be gone but his legacy lives on in a television show that is breaking barriers and causing horror to become one of the top topics at the water-cooler. More horror is never a bad thing and with the television ratings on the rise it looks like the future is very bright even if we have to shoot a few "walkers" to get there.

actually,I felt the ending was telegraphed,the whining is incessant and it's getting to be like a Spielberg movie.Norman Reedus is the only saving grace.Maybe if Sophia's mother didn't cry so much,she'd been out there looking too.And will someone kill Shane already.

you can't kill shane yet, he is the one driving the story. it's not rick, or any other character (though they all have their moments in every episode). shane's actions, as either an asshole with good intentions or just a straight up prick, move the story along. and jon bernthal is awesome as shane, in my opinion. and norman reedus kicks ass ha

I completely agree man! Many people (including three other family members) have said they either thought the last few episodes were boring, or they were giving up on it. Meanwhile I'm sitting here digging the drama aspect. I've come to love the characters so much more, and can't wait until february!

Best episode yet! That was one of the most powerful endings I've seen in a long time. I have to admit though that I was a little disappointed in myself for not seeing it coming. Looking back, I can't believe that it didn't occur to me in the slightest who might be in that barn.

I loved the build up to that last episode. The way the camera panned up Sophia from her little kid shoes to her jeans finally that face! I really didnt make the connection for about 15 seconds then it was totally a HOLY SHIT moment! Im staying optimistic about the next season, cant wait!
