I agree. I know for shows like TWD its to take a break for the holiday crap and a lot of stuff doesn't come back til after the Superbowl. Its AMCs way of keeping ratings high for the show.

But I generally hate long breaks in shows. The Venture Brothers took two long breaks, they stopped mid-season for who knows why and picked up a year and a half later. Then after that season its been a year or two and it seems they have the show written but maybe didn't do it in time for Adult Swim to schedule (or maybe because the ****ing Cleveland show took its time slot). But they still had to show a Halloween special making people like me believe there's hope for a fifth season to air soon.

I think some of the good shows on secondary networks are always fighting for funding.
They get enough funding for a few shows, then the network checks out the ratings and advertising funds and funds a few more episodes.
Anyone ever watch men of a certain age on AMC?
Funny as hell, especially if you happen to be a man of that certain age ( middle aged ). They did a short season, then it went away. It came back after about a year of being gone.
It had something like three spurts of being on and I keep hoping it will return.

Lucky the walking dead got such a following or we would all be disappointed.
It's hard to survive as a weekly show if you aren't on one of the big network.

It's great to see what the show has become after starting as a 6 episode show. I thought it would just be a mini-series until I saw the last episode and realized there could be more seasons. I never knew it was a comic book until part way through season 2.


So back to discussion about TWD, who else really hopes Andrea dies this season? I've hated her from the start and it seems to grow constantly. The thing that annoys me most is the way she always looks like she just smelled a fart. I'm really hoping Michonne calls her out on being a leech and kills Andrea herself.

And a question for the comic-readers, a yes or no answer should suffice. Are Duane and Morgan (the black father and son Rick met in the first episode whom he tries to radio the entire first season) in the comic? And if so, does Rick meet up with them again? I feel like it's a bit of a plot hole that's never been filled. I mean you just kind of stop noticing Rick try the radio and you never hear or see anything about it again.

I predict death while killing the governor when the gang comes back to the town.

Probably when she finds out he ordered Michonne killed.
That's what I was expecting when I saw the end of the last show.
The raid on the town will probably be during whatever the governor has planned for the upcoming execution of the traitor and spy.

Men of a Certain Age was on TNT and, sadly it ain't coming back. The BigHair (SWMBO) and I enjoyed that show

was killed over a year & ½ ago

more recently Andre Braugher was on another show (Last Resort, also cancelled) and Ray Romano is guest-starring on Parenthood

Ha! Now that last spoiler was one that I made a point of reading. I'd been too curious through all the seasons to not read that!

I actually had to fight the urge not to read it even after the large Spoiler Alert so I didn't. Wow, that was hard. Deep breaths. It will be worth it in the end.

The reason I asked was because it looked like a gaping plot hole. Now I have a little more faith in the show to fill it.
