I really dislike when Robert Kirkman is on The Talking Dead or reading his interviews. At best, he's able to maybe explain something from the past. Otherwise it's nothing but shrugs and 'maybes' and 'we'll sees'. Granted he can't give anything away, he is the lead writer after all, but then it becomes an issue of 'Why bother to have him on at all? He can't really contribute anything meaningful.' He can't even speculate or analyze like other guests can.
