I was never a hardcore Walking Dead fan, but I was pretty into the series just before the gruesome introduction of Neegan and that damned bat of his. Needless to say, I was a little turned off after that. Fortunately, AMC's Tales of the Walking Dead is nothing like that. It's not really a spin off, so much as it's an anthology series taking place in the Walking Dead universe. This, of course, means that each episode features a different set of people, a different set of circumstances, and a completely different reason to come back every time, even though every time you do, it's a completely different experience. So, the question is, are these tales worthy of being told in the first place? So far, it feels like a "yes."
