I'm sure the violence on TWD will only get worse if they want to compete.

Please, no spoilers for other shows. I purposely avoided the TWD forum.

AMC seems to give a fair amount of leeway when it comes to violence. Some of the deaths in Breaking Bad were pretty nasty as well.

And what happened after that? HUGE backlash AND TWD had to tone down the violence the next season.

I feel ya. That must be incredibly straining. I'm so susceptible to spoilers. poor self control on my part.

The Walking Dead could be far better. They slashed the budget for season 2 and 3 and only began to rise it around season 5. It's still far smaller than it should be considering it's 1 of the top 10 rated shows on tv.

If it was on HBO, it might be able to compete with GoT on many levels.

and I was half joking anyway. But Thrones will never be on regular TV, IMO.
The No Sanctuary episode had nothing to do with zombie deaths.
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
They were tricked to come into this camp that claimed sanctuary for all, but really it was a trap, because the people who were in charge of the camp would capture survivors, so they can kill them, butcher them up and BBQ them on an open pit. There is a scene that shows men getting their throats slashed and someone carving meat off of a human leg.

I tune out of all conversations or articles about TV shows that I haven't seen aside from just people talking about how good they are. Also I watched hardly any shows for quite a few years. Funny how I must have missed some big historical moments in TV by doing that with no awareness. No way I'm not keeping up to date on GoT though, this stuff is on another level!

Edit: Also meant to say I only just realised Mads plays Hannibal lol. I am way behind on stuff.

Not really. Plenty of other stuff I was obsessed with.

Walking Dead on HBO would mean Negan gets to drop all the F bombs he wants...and from what i've seen of the comics he says it a lot! it's almost hard to take serious though.

in the comics, he is the best character because of his cussing. He is one funny son of a *****.
