The walking dead is indeed a great show.

But there have been many great shows before it, and there are bound to be many after it.

The Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Battlestar Galactica and American Horror Story are all great shows.

I think it would be hard to qualify The Walking Dead as "the best show ever" when it hasn't even been viewed in its entirety. I understand that Pro is very excited about the show because I am too.

I agree with con that there are other shows like Breaking Bad and The Game Of Thrones but The Walking Dead makes you attached to the characters. When Lori, Shane and Merle died, it was very sad. Even though Shane and Merle were d!cks there death made the plot more suspenseful. If Darryl died, I bet everyone who watched the walking dead would riot. I also enjoy Breaking Bad and The Game Of Thrones. The Walking Dead consists of Action, Adventure, Love, and Survival mixed into one epic show, The Walking Dead. After reading an article, seems to me that the Walking Dead is more popular than Breaking Bad in China. http://entertainment.time.com...
The WD (short for walking dead) is on a global scale unlike Breaking Bad or TGOT.

The walking dead scored 8.7/10 on imdb

http://m.imdb.com...

Battlestar Galactica also scored 8.7/10 on imdb

http://m.imdb.com...

Game of thrones out scored them both with an unmatched 9.4/10

http://m.imdb.com...

Game of thrones was so popular in china that a Chinese alcoholic beverage company used the GoT intro in one of their commercials

(Chinese liquor commercial)

It appears as though the Chinese and the IMDB agree that Game of Thrones is better than The Walking Dead (traveling corpses, walking meats). Therefore The Walking Dead can NOT be the best show "ever" even though it might be the best show currently running.

I rest my case and thank you for your time.

Walking dead, as good as it is, is no match for Breaking Bad

Reasons for voting decision: Pro's job in this debate was to probe that the Walking Dead is the best show ever. He failed to do so because Con showed that other shows such as Battlestar Galactica and Game of Thrones were AT LEAST as good as the Walking Dead. Con showed how the ratings of GoT were higher than those of the Walking Dead. Therefor I give the points to Con.
