I was hooked too from the first ep of WD and it wouldn't have mattered if I never even saw a zombie on it. I realized the funny "redneck speak" we see on it is going to be really missed on this new show. I wish they had just started the story from Rick's town.
FTWD is just too much like Law and Order,CSI,...whatever the drama of the week is. I am still hoping it gets better and please drop the teen angst stories!
AND......how are we supposed to get pulled into the story when they point out...
Forgot to mention....I shop there every week...fill out every dang survey and email they HAD sent me and still I get bumped off their email list and prescription refill updates ALL the time. I don't know if it's just my store or a problem with the company. I do still get those cardboard coupons in the mail tho'
Monday I will call once again to complain and I know they will fix the problem and give me bucks to make up for it!
I'm not sure I'll like it as much but will watch. I don't know how to explain this well but Rick and his gang are comic characters(sort of like superheros) and the actors in the new series have been seen so many times in serious roles on tv and "appear" like normal people. I hope you can understand this :)
My guess is that the lab has some artifact/bones in storage that Abbey and Ichobod need.
Who knows....they may only cross over with Angela who was high on a stash of daddy's pot from the 80's and won't remember even meeting Ichobod :)
