My two favourite horror programs at the moment. Which one do you prefer?

For me it's The Walking Dead purely because I know the characters a lot better now because they don't refresh the storyline every series and thus, I feel a better connection with the show.

Total Walking Dead fan here. Though that finale killed my favorite two characters so my heart was broken ;[

I LOVED Asylum, but i wasn't digging Haven early on so i didn't keep up with it - i stopped around 3-4 weeks ago.

Coven is starting to get really political, I kind of enjoy it. Asylum kinda lost my interest when they brought aliens into the equation, still a cracking series though!

And yeah man, I'm so gutted about what happened in the latest TWD

I watched the entire first season of TWD, and I simply did not "get" it.  Dull, dull, dull.  Gave up half way through the second season premier and haven't watched since.

Have not tried AHS.

I also gave up during season 2 of TWD when they spent about 4 episodes looking for a young girl who was already dead. I still find it a bit slow (how long will it take them to catch up with the books?) but the latest season is good.

They aren't going with the books. The executives have already said that.

I've never seen American Horror Story. I'm also not a fan of Walking Dead. I watched a few episodes of Season 2, but it just didn't reel me in.

The Walking Dead. I couldn't get interested in the other show. I'll prob try again at some point.

The French TV show "Les revenants" (The Returned) was brilliant for its first few episodes (it's been described as a Lynchian zombie flick), but petered out as the season wore on. I'm hoping it will get better with the second season. The British series "The Fades" was excellent, but got cut after only one season, despite good ratings and picking up a BAFTA, the w**kers.
