When it comes to The Walking Dead, I am ride-or-die. It has not always been an easy show to love–or even like–but I have watched nine seasons and I’m not going to back out before the tenth. When it’s good, it is really good. When it’s bad, it is like watching paint dry. I still haven’t decided if the good is worth sitting through the bad, but I’m in it for the long haul.
As The Walking Dead stumbles towards its season premiere on October 6th, I have gone through and ranked each season from worst to best. Consider this a public service: This can be used as either a guide to see which seasons you need to catch up on and which to skip; or it can just refresh your memory.
