Maybe The Walking Dead Season 2 Won’t Get Worse

I know it’s a long ways off, but a lot of us weren’t satisfied with what season 1 (all 6 paltry episodes) so it’s nice to hear good things coming out of the writers room for season two.

If I remember correctly, season 2 starts Oct 31st, just like how the series started last year, hopefully though we won’t get any horribly cliche Mexican gangsters running an old folks home episode.

Robert Kirkman relates this from the season two writer’s room, we’re hoping that this means good things for season two, because damn it, why the hell are you making us wait so long AMC?

“We had a funny exchange the other day where one of the writers suggested something absolutely horrible for one of the characters. It was really gut-wrenching, and it was definitely something that was like the coolest moments of the comic where you just go ‘Holy crap! This just happened!’ And after he said it, everybody stopped and looked around the room. Glen Mazzara, who’s running the room, said ‘This is great. This is what’s so good about being on this show. You know these discussions don’t happen in any other writer’s room on any other show. We can do anything to these characters, and it isn’t too much. It fits. The parameters of the show are crazy.’ And I think that’s the kind of thing you have to keep in mind when you’re doing a comic book too. So the short answer is yes. I do enjoy putting the characters through their paces, and the writers on the show are just now realizing how far they’ll be able to go. They seem to be enjoying it too.”
