Archer season 3 had it’s share of highs and lows. While generally a great show, I keep on thinking that the concept of the show is a lot funnier than the show itself.

The Walking Dead Season 2 in Review

If you haven’t pieced it together yet, I really don’t like The Walking Dead. It’s not that good a TV show that receives a lot of undue attention, hype, and love.

So, without further ado, here is my review of the second season of the Walking Dead (spoilers galore), which I would call The Watching Dead.
