The Walking Dead Season 5 will be epic!!!

I waited for six months to watch The Walking Dead. Season 5 will be epic. I admire how Carol developed into a strong woman. Plus the speculations about Terminus is true. All in all I was very satisfied with the result.

Is this show really that good?

I've never watched this show because I thought it's just like another zombie film were it just became really boring.
