I loved season one of this show and then during the gap before season 2 started I began reading the graphic novels which are so good. Then season 2 started and whilst it’s been good, I’ve been disappointed by the lack of zombies and the total deviation from the story. However, I am engrossed and so more zombie goodness can’t come soon enough!
