In Its Final Season, The Walking Dead Finally Finds a Reason to Exist Again


#1

Warning: Spoilers for previous seasons of The Walking Dead.

Chances are you gave up on The Walking Dead during its meandering second season, when Telltale did the obvious next thing and followed what happened to Clementine after Lee died, and totally whiffed it. Outside of genuine satisfaction at Kenny, the well-meaning asshole, dying, I cannot tell you a single thing about it. It was thoroughly forgettable, to the extent it's worth wondering if they'd have been better served treating The Walking Dead as an anthology series, and leaving Clementine behind. The temptation was too much, though. The third season was an improvement, but again, I can't remember much. People died?
