There's been a lot of criticisms levelled at the recently ended first half of THE WALKING DEAD season 2 - character inconsistencies and sloppy plotting, to criminally slow pacing - but few could surely argue that episode 7 was a spectacular episode with a breathtaking payoff.
And it looks like the best is yet to come if we're to believe actor Norman Reedus (aka Daryl) who recently spilt his guts about the show to daemonstv.com. Here's what he had to say:
"I can say that in the second half, after this hiatus, people are done talking. It's all kind of firecrackers from here on out. It gets more action packed. The first part of the season, it gets slow when people have to talk. That's just how it works. I think the writers have done such a great job with setting up storylines and explaining them when they need to be explained, not over talking it and not over thinking it. There are certain things that need to be said to keep the story moving, and I think they've done a good job with it. I know when people watch the show they go, 'More zombies. More death.' But you have to do a bit of talking. Otherwise it's 'Transformers.'"
Whoa, whoa, whoa - leave TRANSFORMERS out of this Reedus! (But, yeah, he's got a point).
Season 2 of THE WALKING DEAD concludes with 6 more episodes beginning February 12th. Bring the rain!
