2. "The Walking Dead" Season 2 was grueling for the right and wrong reasons. Right: That scene where the fat, bloated walker is pulled out of the well and broken in half. Wrong: The never-ending search for Sophia where nothing (nothing!) seemed to happen for three episodes. But Season 3 has struck a perfect balance -- extreme action (Michonne's sword skills!), gut-wrenching storylines (Lori, who knew we'd miss you?) and a sinister-yet-human villain in the Governor. The wait until episodes start again in February will be excruciating.
