I just can’t quit you, “Walking Dead.” Because when you’re good, you’re so good. But when you’re bad, you make me want to put my head through a window.
But this trailer, which is long as fuck and debuted at ComicCon? Is really, really good. It showcases a much larger scale, including an entire town of the living, as well as another setting that, in the comics at least, is a part of one of the most exciting and spectacular chapters of the comics — the prison. It also shows Michonne (Danai Gurira) and The Governor (David Morrissey) in action (and I do mean action on Gurira’s part). The scope is wider and the showrunners have promised that it will take a much, much darker tone (though I’m guessing not quite as dark as the books — at least I hope).
There’s great potential for season three, as long as the show can avoid getting stuck in ruts where there’s little plot movement or character development. You can have one happen, but not both simultaneously, which is what occasionally dragged down season two. That and some really poor, unfocused writing at times. But overall, I’m still excited for the show.
Take a look:
Oh, did I forget to mention Merle? Because Merle fucking Dixon is back, people. And he appears to be channeling one Ashley J. Williams.
