I also don't like that we're two seasons in and I barely give a shit about my favorite characters on this show. I didn't know about the comics for the original show until season 2, so I didn't go into the show with favorites already in my mind. The show itself made me care... This show isn't managing to pull that off. My favorites while watching season 2 were Nick, Strand, Chris, and Daniel. Chris died. I barely care. They are pretending Daniel is dead and left him out of an entire half-season(or killed him in a way that left people wondering and just forgot about him.) I barely care. If all the characters got onto a bus together and closed the door and the whole thing exploded and killed them all, I'd barely care.
No matter how hard I try, I just don't care about these people... I'm not sure what the problem is... I even connected to characters I didn't like in the original show. I cried when Lori died and I fucking hated her. I actually liked Chris and didn't really care much when he died. This show isn't able to rope in my feelings as well as the first one was.
Yeah I just can't connect with the characters, I don't know why that is but they're just unlikeable. Wouldn't care if anyone of them died. The show just doesn't work if all the characters are batshit unlikeable.
