I agree about Season 2. My biggest beef with the show is that there are a lot of characters who seem to cause conflict merely for the sake of causing conflict. Shane was kind of falling into that trap. It seems to be something they've really worked on for the third season; the Governor and Merle, for example, are really layered characters.

Although by the same token, we had Tomas and Andrew. Not exactly multi-dimensional.

Baby steps, I guess!
Fair point, setting up future storylines is always good. Sometimes when you view a TV show it can make a huge difference if you watch it all in one DVD sitting (ie watch the entire series over 1-2 days) vs watching it once a week. Watching it once a week makes "set up" episodes seem slower then they probably are. Taken overall, they fit in nicely.
