The series zombie moments are thrilling, but the character interaction is so cliché'd to the point of being unbearably cringeworthy.

So you're saying their acting is on-par with... zombies?

Loving every episode of TWD so far!! Much better than Season 3. The end of S4E3 was a ripper!!

I don't know what else a former sumo wrestler would do except, if they can't shed the weight, die of heart disease.

Do like the costumes though. The Japanese do a good job with Halloween.
