Yeah, I've got a series of shows I'm going to finis before I reconsider TWD for the same purpose.
Just finished Spartacus, GoT, Vikings, The Pacific, and am now working on The Last Kingdom.
I had high hopes for The Pacific, but was quite disappointed. I watched it right after Band of Brothers, which, to me, is was superb. So, about a year ago, I re-watched The Pacific, thinking I would approach it with a new perspective. Nope. Still did not like it much at all. Too much focus on personal, non-combat scenes.
Really enjoyed The Last Kingdom. But, really pissed it is taking so long for Season 2. I am going to have to go back and watch Season 1 again, if Season 2 ever comes out.
If you are looking for shows - I highly recommend Boardwalk Empire and Peaky Blinders. Although Peaky Blinders is really pissing me off as I wait for a new season.
