I don't think I could have summed it up any better to be honest.
What I love, is the sensitive way in which the human story is told, or rather humanity.
In our house, what we'd all like to know though, is why the zombies' flesh doesn't continue to decompose?
As a horror tale, it's superb. DD2 and I like Darryl and hope he doesn't "cop it". Even though I didn't like Merle, I do admit to feeling more than a little sad when it became obvious what was going to happen to him.
We also liked "666 Park Avenue" but felt it ended a little disappointingly, due no doubt to the fact that the network decided not to commission another season and they had to hurriedly tie up loose ends. I thought it had great potential.
