    Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman, this gritty drama portrays life in the weeks and months following a zombie apocalypse. Led by police officer Rick Grimes, his family and a group of other survivors find themselves constantly on the move in search of a safe and secure home. But the pressure each day to stay alive sends many in the group to the deepest depths of human cruelty, and Rick discovers that the overwhelming fear of the survivors can be more deadly than the
    zombies walking among them.

    ‘The Walking Dead’ recap: Apocalypse now New details The heroes of The Walking Dead are faced with a new reality. They weren’t as strong as they thought they were. They’re stuck following the orders of a man they hate and fear. They’ve lost loved ones and fear they’ll lose more.

    What was that thing about art imitating life?

    As we enter the fourth episode of the season, the Negan problem isn't going away. Jeffrey Dean Morgan's villain is still just as boring, just as non-threatening as he was before. An extra-long episode that was basically just the IKEA trip from Hell doesn't really do anything to further his character. The only thing we really learned during "Service" is that the Saviors are more trolls than anything else. They do things for the lulz, not for any real gain. That's why they just burned the mattresses instead of bringing them back to their compound (where Negan is sleeping on a twin, you'd really think he'd enjoy a nice pillow-top).

    Does that make them scary? No. It makes them annoying. It makes them grating. And by consequence, it makes the show boring and exhausting. And it's a shame, because this show has at points been one of the most exciting on television. The answer is not more Negan. The answer is far, far less Negan.
