Now that we’ve reached the mid-season finale of “The Walking Dead” and new episodes won’t start airing till Feb. 12, we want to know how YOU would rate the overall first half of the season from 10 (obsessed) to 1 (why is this still on TV). Cast your vote in our “The Walking Dead” poll below and then be sure to sound off in the comments section.
The season opened on October 23 with a bang as both Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) and Glenn (Steven Yeun) were killed by Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and his trusty bat Lucille. That helped “The Walking Dead” score major ratings and it even re-energized the series. The mid-season finale saw Daryl (Norman Reedus) escape, Negan doing the audience a favor in killing whiny Spencer (Austin Nichols), and the episode ended with most of the main characters deciding it was time to fight him and the Saviors.
“The Walking Dead” has had a so-so Emmy Awards record, winning two Emmys for Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup (2011-2012) and has received 13 other nominations below the line. But the tide might be shifting. At the Critics’ Choice Awards last week, Morgan won Best Drama Guest Performer. The producers should be careful if they’re intending for Morgan to enter the guest Emmy category he can only appear in two more episodes before he will have to be switched over to the supporting category. This is due to a rule change that guest actors and actresses must appear in less than 50% of the episodes within the eligibility period.
