- To me personally, The Walking Dead is about one person only... Rick Grimes! Everyone else are just meat shields, including greasy Daryl. Not sure why people think he's untouchable and that crossbow is impractical. I mean come on, with all the guns they have, who's gonna use that huge clunky thing. If I had to pick a favorite besides Rick it would be Michone. Now a katana, that's a weapon for a zombie apocalypse. Although I'm not real happy with her after last week. She's got some explaining to do.
