Check out io9's review of the last episode.
Fortunately for us, Frank Darabont's incredible influence can still be felt throughout Season 2, as the season was likely scripted before his departure. For those who need to catch up on their Walking Dead gossip, Frank Darabont spearheaded the television series until last summer when AMC abruptly "fired" him, despite reports to the contrary. Darabont had big goals for AMC's #1 rated show. He was passionate about the show's authenticity and cried fowl when their budgets were brutally slashed to bolster Mad Men.

Think Blackhawk Down with zombies. Wouldn't that have been cool?
I don't begrduge Mad Men. I know first hand that it's a good show, but it's no longer the ratings angel it once was. Is there an unreasonable prejudice against science fiction/fantasy shows?
