I stopped watching "The Walking Dead" in its second season for probably the same reasons many viewers got frustrated in the second season: It became a soap opera at a farmhouse that (very) occasionally had cool zombie decapitations. And has there ever been a more annoying child character (save Brody's kid in "Homeland") than Carl "JUST STAY IN THE DAMN HOUSE" Grimes? He was asking for a chomp to the shoulder.
Anyway, if lightsabers were introduced in that momentum-killing second season.... Well, we might have ourselves an interesting show. At least, that's the vibe I'm getting from the above video.
(Also, readers, I leave this to you: Is the third season, by all accounts bloody good fun, worth slogging through the second season? Genuinely want to know here.)
