The Walking Dead "TS-19": Tomorrow Is a Long Time
The first season of The Walking Dead ends up taking at least a dozen episodes worth of story and boiling it down to just six, so if much of it seems rushed, we shouldn't be surprised. And that's really the only fault I have in the inaugural season for the comic book adaptation. Many characters didn't get enough time with them for us to care about their demise -- see Jacqui, for instance. I guess it's fitting then that her suicide decision to stay behind is, for all intents and purposes, shrugged off by the group (save a brief "are you sure" from T-Dog). The time at the CDC alone could've been stretched out over 2-4 episodes (or a whole season ala Sons of Anarchy's frustrating hide-the-baby story arc). Despited the rushed storytelling, I'm all in and look forward to the full 13-episode next Halloween.
