There isn't a TV show out there where every single moment of every episode is a thrill ride. People take time to talk to each other. Even on The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, The Wire, The Shield, Sons of Anarchy, Justified, etc. The only reason you don't hear people complaining is they forget the talking episodes after the seasons and only remember the intense action. There was a lot of talking in TWD's season 1. You just forgot the talking scenes. This has always been a talky zombie show. You act like this is the first time they just sat and talked to each other.
But in the shows you mentioned, the plot actually moves forward. As I said in a different post in this thread, other shows could have accomplished, in a scene or two, what this episode of TWD accomplished in a full episode in terms of plot
Are you really this thick or are you trolling? TWD does not have a large cast. Boardwalk Empire has a large cast. Game of Thrones has a large cast. They both move the plot forward at a pace ten times faster than this show.
LOL this season has probably the longest amount f episodes I ever seen in a season....
and you're seeing WHY...
Now, again...if this season was SHORTER? You'd see it in a better more entertaining light. As such, however, it's plodding along with soap opera BS...BS that was successfully tailored with 6 episodes in season 1...
Problem with having a 16 episode season. That's why it needs to stay at 13. As Kurt Sutter says " I keep SOA at 13 for quality and sanity".
DING DING DING! CORRECT AGAIN
Although I must give them credit. They did do a good job on making the Governor/Rick meeting as epic as this:
