Here's how to tell if you're hooked on walkers and the survivors who slay 'em.

The Walking Dead is finally back, and it's back in a huge way. After weeks and weeks of Sunday nights spent mourning the show during its midseason hiatus, Rick Grimes, Daryl Dixon, Carol Pelletier and the crew you love are all back to show us what they're made of, how to survive and how to, well, not quite thrive, but still  slay during the zombie apocalypse.

Sure, sometimes there are weird holes in TWD that don't quite get filled, but it's still easily one of the best shows on television: You root for the main characters, even when they drive you insane, and you seethe over others (here's looking at you and your stupid goddamn songs, Beth Greene). See the following for signs of a true Walking Dead addiction. There's no rehab for it. There's no cure for it. There's only your DVR and your flawless taste. Learn to embrace it. Especially if the action finally picks back up this season ... so far we're on episode three and it's a bit slow, save for (spoiler alert) the death of one of our favorites.

At :57 on Sundays, this is you on your way to your couch.

But not because Beth Greene was dead Most of us were happy about that because Beth Greene was the worst since Andrea (who was the worst since Lori Grimes). You cried because you have empty Sundays now, and it hurts.
