Plus, if you're looking for any degree of realism (... yeah, I know, realism in a zombie apocalypse story ), they're probably not going to be slaying entire zombie hordes every single day.

That being said, I do agree they could do a little better job of blending the slow, setup episodes with a little bit of action or suspense. The entire episode doesn't have to be slow. It is entertainment, not a documentary...
To me, even the zombie killing is a tad boring at this point. I'm sure it's just me.

It has become a little bit repetitive. But, that's actually part of the plot. You see the characters finally adapting to the world they now live in, where killing a walker is just another part of your day. That's why they're setting up the whole Governor thing. The tag line for this season: "fight the dead fear the living". They're introducing some new protagonists, this time with a pulse. The story is not just about killing zombies, it's about surviving in a post-apocalyptic world, and all that it entails. We saw the group coming to realize this in season 2, with the a-holes in the bar, and Randall.

For me, the first episode of season 3 was the worst I'd seen. Plot holes were everywhere, and the GAWD AWFUL special effects with the guns made me mad.

Also... how come they're never scavenging toilet paper? We haven't seen toilet paper since season 1, when Andrea's sister got bitten. Just sayin...

I didn't really like the questions though. Pretty vague and plenty of interpretation.

Andrea is my favorite character in the comic though. Now I know why.

The makers themselves have said they make it a point to limit the zombie action. If they were killing zombies all the time you'd stop caring. When it happens they still want it to have a purpose and to be exciting.

To be fair movies and tv never really address going to the bathroom unless it's for an easy joke.
