    2 DAYS 1 NIGHT: 6/10

    Despite being a cable show, THE WALKING DEAD has fallen into the same trap most network shows have. Just because each season has a break in the Winter, it doesn’t mean each season has to be split into 2 and have 2 storylines. That’s one of the reasons why season 5 wasn’t as good as usual. Also, it’s not a show meant to last too long.

    I’ll watch VAMPIRE HUNTER D and maybe ALOHA.
