Eh? I’m late to this party and should have talked about it over three years ago when Z Nation first started? Heh, maybe true, but whatever. I’m here now and I’m doing it today.
Oh yeah, SPOILER ALERT.
I’m not going to bury the lead this time: I prefer Z Nation to The Walking Dead. Unpopular opinion? Perhaps. I suspect, however, that it’s less unpopular than it was one year ago, or two, or three. Ratings for The Walking Dead have been falling steadily, and the plot has spent the last few seasons perfecting the art of filling a whole broadcast hour without actually moving forward. Seems to me, The Walking Dead is starting to lose steam.
Below, I’m going to compare the shows in a few different areas. I’ll try to be fair, but we both already know what the end result is going to be. I still watch them both, so I would like to see TWD recover, but in the meantime…well, read on.
