WTF is going on with Walking Dead?

Am I the only one PO’ed at The Walking Dead right now? First, Rick starts acting like a … jerk. I don’t like mean Rick. These people aren’t idiots. They don’t need a dictator to survive.

And then, not only does T-Dog die, but Lori too. What the hell, man? They had three black people and they managed to kill two of them? And Lori? The Madonna figure? Mother of a new generation of non-zombies? The shiny light of hope to a beat-down world? And how realistic is it that anyone could do a C-section on a living, breathing, conscious friend? I’ve watched surgery videos. That crap in there looks like spaghetti. You don’t just pop the balloon and out comes the baby. She’d be more likely to successfully deliver the kidney.

And letting the little boy watch — and then deliver the coup de grâce? That’s BS, man.

You guys have lost it. You’re doing what Boardwalk Empire did — making your main character someone people don’t like, and killing off all of your sympathetic characters. People really don’t like to watch/read shows/books where they don’t like anyone. You have to have someone to root for. Your main characters have to be more good than bad. Especially in a zombie apocolypse. You have to have a hero, or it’s just all too dark and dreary and depressing.
