I haven't had a problem with any of the dialogue. I don't think the story is shoddy though. I think it has to be that way to give the viewers a mystery. It's slowly showing the viewers more and more things about what happened and how. I wouldn't consider it any more shoddy than Lost was when it was on. Curious about the mistakes it's made though, they either went over my head, or I've added it to the "Unknown".
I do love the setting, post-apocalyptic type world stories are awesome. I'm making one as we speak.
I've found the dialogue to be just plain, there are times where I can predict word by word what's about to come next. The average dialogue wouldn't be too bad either if it was delivered by good actors, but aside from Giancarlo Esposito who is fantastic even though he has a bad role, the majority of the actors are wooden and aren't really believable in their roles.
The main actress and character for example just makes me cringe every time she's on, I don't know how she's survived past the first episode where the guy was constantly hacking at her over head for a full 2 minutes and all she did was crouch while blocking with a crossbow, though he could have stabbed her and be done with it.
I feel like it tries to give mystery, but it's just badly done so it hasn't been able to add any suspense or interest to the story line. At this moment I care more about how the main character will hopefully die than what happens with the electricity.
Oh hey guys! I have a tattoo of my name and a logo for myself on my arm! That's totally a normal thing to do! Let's all use muskets because no way weapons could have possibly worked after electricity stopped! But apparently we can all still have perfectly fitted leather tight clothes and get absolutely no dirt on any of our faces!
Here's what, I still have all the episodes, I will stream them tomorrow for everyone here and we can all watch it and go through. Doug you can join if you like and see how it is, free tomorrow?
Jericho on the other hand I've heard good things about and I haven't watched it yet but I downloaded it and I plan to.
