Your Favorite TV Character is Dead
But in this present era, there are more and more shows that are upping the stakes. More where the horror is more in your face and actors will leave shows where their characters have died or been killed. While CSI, NCIS, Criminal Minds and other shows of that ilk can be violent and but they're also serialized, making the stakes of whether a main character will die is less and less in comparison to the shows in the new era of 2000-up.
Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Hannibal, American Horror Story, Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy, are all part of the shows that pull no punches. There are more out there. But up above in that photo with "fave" misspelled kind of represents how some characters are killed off shows lately. It's just more common than it used to be. One reason why that finale of season four of The Walking Dead kind of underwhelmed. Are we expecting more of a show like that now? But that's a story for another day (or another blog entry).
