hane might act a little crazy every now and then, but who wouldn't while living in the zombie apocalypse? At the end of the day, Shane is the most interesting character on The Walking Dead and deserves your support. Here are 11 reasons to love Shane!

It seems like every time I talk with someone about The Walking Dead they end up labeling Shane Walsh as a despicable and villainous man. My response: nonsense, there are plenty of reasons to love Shane! What has Shane Walsh done to warrant such rage? He left Rick in the hospital? He honestly thought his buddy was gone and at least blocked off the room so he wouldn't become zombie chow. Killed Otis? It was assuring Carl's safety! Slept with Lori? Given the circumstances, you wouldn't? Threatened Dale? We all know he was just trolling the old guy. If he wanted to kill him, he would have in the woods!

The rise of the undead and the slaughter of society calls for a new means of living if humanity wants to thrive. People seem to believe Shane's methods are pure evil, but I beg to differ. In his own way, his actions have (for the most part) been for the greater good of his group. Let's see why Shane is a man worthy of your love.

Beware, this list is packed with spoilers!

Skilled Gunslinger

In an environment where zombies could attack at any second, you need to know how to defend yourself from the shuffling hordes... and Shane is just the guy to teach you how. When it comes to firearms, Shane is the group's Obi-Wan Kenobi. He advocates that everyone should learn to use a gun, and does his best to train those who want to learn. For example, look at Andrea. Pre-Shane training she's flipping out, post-Shane training she becomes the friggin' Terminator and pulls more headshots than a hacker in Call of Duty multiplayer. Stick with Shane and you'll be slaying zombies with little effort.

Relationship Extraordinaire

The post-apocalyptic world is a very traumatic place and not everyone will be able to take the pressure. Relationships will collapse and some individuals will lash out. If they happen to do so on an innocent spouse, you can expect Shane to be your knight in shining armor and prevent the group from turning into an episode of Jerry Springer. Remember back in Season 1 when Ed was beating his wife, Carol? Shane resolved that quick and effectively with his fists saying hello to Ed's abusive face. He went a little overboard with the message, but regardless, it fixed the problem.

Grade-A Zombie Killer

If you're part of the crowd that thought Season 2 was too slow, you should love Shane! If he even suspects there are infected nearby, you can absolutely bet he'll be determined to slaughter them. The walkers were safely contained in the barn for God knows how long, but Shane couldn't resist the urge to slaughter the trapped group of zombies. Next time you think of sipping that haterade and complaining about Mr. Walsh, just realize Shane is trying to make things entertaining for you one shotgun blast at a time.

Not One Dimensional

As much as I love The Walking Dead, most of the characters really aren't that interesting (did T-Dog do anything except for get hurt this season?). The complete opposite holds true for Shane. In a sea of mostly one-dimensional characters, Shane's personality and jumbled mind leaves us wondering just how far he'll go to accomplish what he thinks is right.

I liked the first season of the walking dead. It was the biggest hit of the year 2010 on television. The work is handled with great intelligence and sensitivity.

Well I love the series walking dead too. But I am not as obsessed about Shane Walsh as you seem to be. He is a great actor and he portrays the character seamlessly. The writer has given his character a good amount of depth and clarity.
