In a move that surprises no one, AMC is announcing plans for a third season of smash hit cable drama The Walking Dead. For those of us who don’t spend all of our time looking to hate the show, this is great news. Actually, it’s good news for the show’s detractors as well as this will provide them with more opportunities to nitpick zombie survival “rules”, complain that “not enough happens” from episode to episode, and demand that every character in the ensemble show has a complete 90 minute character arc in the span of 40 minutes each and every week.

OK, OK, I can admit the show has a few kinks to work out. But hey, at least we now know T-Dog has a real, non embarrassing name! (It’s Theodore!)
