Poll: Is the Head-Shot to the “Walking Dead” Writing Staff a Good Thing or Bad?

A writer for The Walking Dead gets pink-slipped

News broke yesterday that Frank Darabont has fired the entire writing staff for The Walking Dead (“Congrats on a record-breaking first season and second-season pickup, and Happy Fucking Holidays!”) and is considering not hiring a new one, instead relying on himself and freelancers.

The question this leaves us with is, “Was this a good idea?” Based on your thoughts about the first 5 eps of Season 1, are you worried about what’s to come for the runaway zombie hit?

Vote now or forever hold your brains!

Myself, I’m not terribly bothered by the decision (other than it means more creative types are out-of-work, which always sucks). I haven’t exactly been blown away by the writing this season anyway – everything pretty much stalled for me midway through Episode 2 and hasn’t really picked back up. New blood, new ideas?

Thoughts?
