10. The Walking Dead
The Walking Dead's hotly-anticipated eighth season reached its midway point on 10 December last year and more episodes are already on the horizon, with a return date of 25 February penned into AMC's broadcasting schedule.
Although the latest series of the zombie drama promised much, adapting the much-loved All-Out War arc from the comic books, many fans feel it has failed to live up to their lofty expectations, citing pacing issues and the show's failure to use its best characters to their full potential among their chief concerns.
While many of these complaints are legitimate, Walking Dead has a strong track record when it comes to turning things around, and with an epic conflict due to reach its fiery conclusion in Season 8B, the lull will (hopefully) be temporary.
As well as bringing Rick and his allies' war against Negan and the Saviors to a close, the second half of Season 8 has the small matter of Carl Grimes's fate to address. When the Alexandria leader's son was last seen, he'd suffered what appeared to be a fatal zombie bite, casting his long-term future on the show into serious doubt.
Fan are already bracing themselves for a harrowing return episode, and no doubt hoping that Carl's death will spur Rick and his friends into action as the catalyst that brings the war to the incendiary conclusion it needs.
