The Walking Dead: 10 Reasons Why Season 4 Will Be The Best Yet

20 Jul

The Walking Dead

It’s a little over a month until America’s biggest show (if you believe the ratings) crashes back onto the big screen, and I personally can’t wait. When it wants to, the Walking Dead can thrill like little else on television. Yet pessimists will always point out the first part of that sentence – ‘when it wants to be.’

Honestly, I see where they’re coming from. The Walking Dead’s dramatic problems are well-documented and after the positively glacial second season, we were all ready to simply down tools and leave Rick Grimes and his procrastinating friends to their procrastinating ball games and inattentive children watching (‘what do you mean, Carl isn’t in the house) and shack up with more exciting shows. But then, a funny thing happened – season three turned out to be awesome, restoring our faith that a frustrating show that could be good actually managed live up to the expectation.

Now, I grant you that it isn’t perfect, and I’ll be making that abundantly clear throughout this article. Along with some awesome strengths there were some glaring flaws, and they need to be addressed. Yet nonetheless, I’m extremely excited about season four. If the third season proved nothing else, it’s that the writers are capable of learning from their mistakes and know how to build on their strengths (namely, massive zombie murder). So if they can repeat the trick, I’ve every confidence the fourth season will kick all the ass, resurrect it and kick it again. Hell, if you’re not convinced,just look at the goddamned trailer.

With this in mind, I’ve drawn up 10 reasons why I believe The Walking Dead Season Four will be the best season yet. Beware that a SPOILER WARNING is in effect. If you’re fine with that, or just love to have things spoiled for you, then please, read on.

The Walking Dead: 10 Things We Want To See In The Next 8 Episodes

5 Mar


The Walking Dead follows Rick Grimes, a police officer who was shot and went into a coma, an event which may in fact have saved his life – while he was in the hospital, an unknown event caused a zombie apocalypse. Rick wakes from his coma and sets off to try and find his family and luckily he does manage to be reunited with them and the group of survivors that they are a part of. Eventually he becomes the leader.

Based on the long-running comic book series from Robert Kirkman, the TV show loosely follows the comics storyline, with new story elements and characters added in to keep it fresh for both fans and first time viewers alike.

Already in season three we have been introduced to the town of Woodbury and another group of survivors led by the secretly evil character called The Governor. We have been shown the prison which will become the home of Rick’s group – at least for a while – and have been introduced to fan favourites like Michonne and Tyrese. The midseason finale left off with a gun fight between the two groups of survivors, The Governor injured with the loss of an eye, and the Dixon Brothers in what could be one hell of a deadly situation.

Now that season three is returning with 8 episodes left, we thought we would have a look at things we would like to see in the rest of this season, both from the comics and in general.

Spoiler Alert: This article will contain spoilers for the comics and the show so far.
