I know a lot of people have had a rough ride with The Walking Dead over the 10 years it’s been on the air. And I can’t fault that. Personally, not counting the excruciatingly long story arc with Negan, I’ve enjoyed the direction the show has gone. But the thing that really surprises me is the incredible storytelling in those first few seasons. Maybe it’s outlived it’s run on tv (at least the original show), but you can’t deny with all its faults, it’s still one of the best written shows on television.
