    Thought season 1 was ok. Caught up on most of my tv so I'm sticking with it.

    Has anyone used the FX app for Apple TV or any of the other devices? I don't know if it's like HBO and has the show on at the same time or what

    Oh yeah. They're really good. The guys that are doing the show actually wrote them so the show is following them very well so it's a great adaptation. The books are good and have more detail and backstory so they're "better" but they could do everything from them in the show unlike Game of Thrones.

    It's like they told him to act like Carl from walking dead, and he even looks like him.

    This new child actor playing the son is just the fucking pits. He has that perpetual defiant-child look and attitude about him and it's super annoying.

    The son is one of the most insufferable shit characters ever created in fiction.

    He will only get worse and more prominently featured.

    Everytime he comes into the scene I have to mute the TV, his acting is horrible. He's just about on the same level as both Carl from WD and Dana from Homeland. Didn't think that was possible.

    So did the daywalkers or whatever die off that easy in the books? I really was intrigued by them and wondered how they would fit into the story going forward and then they got killed with big flashlights. Very disappointed.

    It's definitely a big step up from most of the first season.

    I think they are doing a much better job with the characters on the show this season.
