They kill off main characters.
When Allison died it was a sad and touching moment, only reading the interviews afterwards was like eating ice cream after a breakup which made up for it. Jon Snow was another memorable death, even though he’s coming back (apparently), it was a depressing scene when the Nights Watch took turn after turn stabbing him, I was yelling at the TV and I’m not going to lie I might have shed a few tears.
Don’t even get me started on the Walking Dead. It’s currently one of my favorite shows and the show runners just love killing off those we care for. I was browsing Vanity Fair and I saw an article over Daredevil and the Walking Dead. It was comparing each show and how TWD kill off main people while Daredevil makes it very obvious that when do they kill someone off they’ll be back. As soon as I read the first sentence of the article I knew I didn’t want to be spoiled so I quickly watch the two recent episodes I missed and then I continued to read on. I’ve only seen season one of Daredevil so knowing that big of a plot twist isn’t that big of a deal especially when I know the dead character will be back.
If you’re not addicted to or even slightly infatuated with one of (or all of) these shows please give them a chance, they kill because they care.
