I'm not to keen on that redneck brother returning to the series.

Aw, man. We need to see Merle again, lest it all turn into a Ricktatorship.

Too many characters pulling guns on each others' faces. Maybe Merle has something more interesting up his torn-off hillbilly sleeve.

I am a big fan of the show, just finished season 2 a few weeks back. I personally loved season 2 more then 1. Looking forward to season 3, but really did not like the glimpse of the sword carrying person with the 2 zombies on a leash. I like it nice and simple, run from zombies, or shoot them in the head, no training, controlling or anything like that.

I agree. I read through the comic series and that character transforms the narrative into a superhero tale. I prefer plain old humans, thanks.

Exactly. I love the post apocalyptic stories, mans survival when the world as we know it changes. Walking dead works great for that, just has zombies. I would enjoy the story of man surviving without the zombies even more if as well done as walking dead.

I was expecting good things from Revolution, but was big time disappointed, just didnt feel believable to me, and by that I dont mean how the power went out, just how people were surviving. Everyone looked rather clean.

Agreed. The sets look really well dressed and tended. A hairdresser's version of desolation.

Not that I would highly recommend it (really flawed story), but I kind of enjoyed the atmosphere of:

Vanishing on 7th Street (2010) - IMDb

About a world without light.

I just about burst out laughing in Revolution when the main character stumbled across the most clean cut, well groomed guy I have ever seen by a fire near a stream with cloths that look like they had just come out of a dryer. Almost turned it off at that point.

I did see the Vanishing on 7th Street, it was interesting and I did enjoy it, but not something I would really go back and watch again. It kind of reminded me of an old radio drama, cant remember the show, but it was similar, there was something in that darkness, or the darkness itself after some people.

I do enjoy the depopulated world genre though. I get a hankering for it and even went back to the crappy TV Movie, The Langoliers recently.

Saw this one a few weeks back:

Creation of the Damned (1974) - IMDb

but pretty much had everyone stuck in a bomb shelter,
