First: If you're going to post spoilers, please give a fair warning for all.
Now that that's settled, I'll start off by saying I am a huge fan of the comic book. A HUGE fan. When I found out the TV show was going to happen, I danced around in girlish glee.
Now that the show has began its second season, I'm not really caring for it much anymore.
Whether you're a fan of the comic or haven't read a single issue, the problem lies with the writing.
They've dinked around at Herschel's farm for the entire season - and while them leaving isn't quite in the series' budget - zombies should be.
The first episode of the second season featured an overwhelming group of zombies. Following that, somehow, the open field of farm has been a safe house for everyone (save last week's episode).
The characterization is starting to feel completely out of control with irrational decisions (Lori driving off to find Rick?) and it leaves me, the viewer, frustrated.
Either way, I figure we could at least generate some discussion about the episodes here. If we want to go into the comics, just forewarn people because there's tons of spoiler-heavy material in there (even though the show has drastically veered away from the comics).
So! What have you?
