So far, Season 3 has been mediocre, but still watchable, at least to me. People on here, naturally, act like the new episodes are zombie-simpsons-tier bad.
The first episode wasn't that bad, it's just that it mostly focused on digging Rick out of the mess he made for himself. Two bad episodes in a row sucks, sure, but it's not like the show hasn't had bad episodes before. If the next episode is another stinker, though, I'll start to worry for the show's well-being, but as of now, it seems to just be a rough start.
