Let's say you're in charge of a new television show that becomes a critically acclaimed hit. What would you do to reward the writing staff? Would you...

A. Dole out a financial bonus.

B. Take everyone on an all-expenses-paid vacation.

C. Fire the entire lot.

If you answered C, you must be Frank Darabont. According to Deadline, Darabont has liquidated the entire writing staff of “The Walking Dead” and plans on utilizing freelancers for the show's second season. This is probably due, in no small part, to the fact that Darabont ended up writing the first two episodes by himself, and co-writing the remaining four. While there is still the possibility that Darabont could change his mind or the network could protest, I'd like to recommend that the writers involved not hold out hope. After all, hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane. (Coming Soon)
