I just finished watching The Walking Dead season premier ("No Sanctuary"). (Yes, I recorded it.)
Overall, not bad. Some of the violence is a little over the top (even for a series about zombies.) I mean, really (spoiler alert) institutionalized cannibalism?
Nevertheless, the character evolution in this series continues to be top-knotch, even if some of the horror elements occasionally veer toward the simplistic. Moreover, there is never a dull moment.
I'm hooked for another season. The Walking Dead isn't perfect, but it's one of the best shows on cable right now.
