Should go without saying, but may contain spoilers.
I think caring about the characters is important in any show. I agree though, I don't care at all about any of the characters in this show. I think that's the biggest problem they have with The Walking Dead. None of their characters are particularly likable. Nobody is particularly charismatic or cool in any way. I would not say the acting is bad exactly, it's more like everyone is portraying a boring minor character and no one is really stepping up and grabbing our attention. Nobody is acting like a damn lead. It's just one of those things that happen occasionally. Unfortunately it should have been caught in the casting stage. I haven't felt like a cast has failed to work this badly since Star Trek Voyager. The writing and everything else could of course be improved too, but I sort of doubt this cast could ever have produced anything truly good together.

I can't really believe I'm saying this, but I almost find their attempts at diversity on the show to be offensive. I mean, you get a token asian guy and a token black guy. If another token black guy shows up you know the current token brother is fucked. And T-Dog (hard to believe that was actually what they called him) basically was given the least development as a character and nobody really ever seemed to give a shit about him at all, even though he was actually a pretty great guy. Again, I can't believe I'm the one saying this stuff. I think maybe it annoyed me because it's so incredibly obvious with this show.
