Yeah, The Walking Dead pretty quickly turned into garbage, i stopped watching years ago. Have you watched The Knick? I was disappointed it got cancelled, i thought it was great but it also didn't attract a big enough fan base. The lowest common denominator TV viewer (the mouth breathers that watch stuff like Duck Dynasty & the Kardashians) don't appreciate character driven long arc stories. GoT was so successful because they threaded the needle between rich characters and detailed long term plot with immediate gratification death and sex every episode.
