    • I kinda have to agree. AMC hasn’t screwed up a show, yet. Hell, they aren’t FOX or NBC. I was just saying on our group on Facebook that it could very-well be that Mazzara wanted to put his own stamp on the series with a vision that strayed too far from the source material and AMC wasn’t having it. This isn’t uncommon. Mazzara, like any creative person doesn’t want to be just known for adapting someone else’s work. I’m sure more inforamtion will trickle out about the departure as the weeks progress.

      Or, he could have wanted to kill off Daryl, which is of course, the deal-breaker of all deal-breakers.
