1 person marked this as a favorite.

I thought the season opener was kind of a let down. It was nice to see Rick and the others put together a solid plan, even the part with giving surrender by the Saviors a chance.

Didn't like seeing Gregory not die. I really wanted to see that little weasel get eaten.

Didn't like seeing Father Gabriel trapped with Negan. I have a feeling that won't end well for Gabriel, and I was really starting to like him.

Overall, I was bummed at the lack of death.


Ep. 3! Finally something worth watching. It's been a pretty weak start this year.


Aw, maaaaan!

Spoiler:
Shivaaaaaaa!


They did it pretty much exactly like the comic scene. Except iirc it happens after the events of All Out War.....

Scarab Sages

All those poor walkers getting gunned down like that. Cold, man. Really cold.


My wife and I finally watched last weeks episode last night. After it was over she turned to me and said "So, like nothing actually happened right?" and I couldn't disagree. Literally, no plot movement outside of 10 or so minutes with the Dumpster Divers who switched sides yet again.

Scarab Sages

Well, as far as mid-season finales go.....that was really f++!ing lame.

Spoiler:
During the first few episodes they established that the Saviors were in deep s@!% thanks to Rick's plan. All of a sudden, they are not only out of their compound, but have enough guns and man-power to hit multiple targets at once? If they had that kind of s#$! all along, Rick's plan would have never made it that far.

Eugene switching sides again?!? And now Negan will know Dwight's the traitor?!? Lame.

And looks like the kid playing Carl found something else to move on to. Maybe he saw the writing on the wall.....?

Overall, I think this season has been pretty weak. I'm not actually certain I'll still be watching when things pick back up.

Scarab Sages

I think I may start one of those sad hashtag movements #letthewalkersfeast. All those dumb a*~$@**s deserve to be eaten.


Comic series isn't much better with the nonsense in the current issue. The whole 'live with your sins' thing needs to stay in the super hero comics


Yeah, imho this is the weakest TWD has been since that craptastic half season at the Farm.

Also, killing Carl off was dumb. Id rather Darryl eat it, I mean in my head it makes way more narrative sense to kill of the obviously rage filled Darryl who has been taking more and greater risks.

Whatever.


Also, all that garbage time with the Dumpster Fires and they what...ran off 10 minutes into this episode with nary a line.

Whatever.


I dunno. Seeing as it's becoming increasingly unlikely that the next arc from the comic will be adapted, I could see how killing off Carl makes sense. His actor is getting older, after all, and the alternative is to wrap this war up this season or the next. Possible, but I can see the writers milking Negan.

Comic Spoilers:
I'm getting the impression that this is supposed to be the show's version of Andrea's death. They're not going to kill off Michonne, obviously, so that puts Carl on the chopping block.

Don't get me wrong, this season has been a trainwreck either way. Also, I really wish they would stop this whole "midseason finale" thing. But I digress.

WD used to be a rollercoaster of quality, now its just a carousel.


After a lackluster first half this season, TWD is bringing it lately. The Question is, Is anyone still watching?

Sovereign Court

What exactly is it bringing?


Flaming zombie grudge match! lots and lots of guts! It seems like they're back to letting Nicotero work his magic which is to the good.


You mean trash woman surprise show up and neegan rescue?

Hey, watching the Garbage Pail Kids go down the Dispos-all was good fun. I was kinda hoping Jadis would just disappear and show up down the road as Alpha, but I don't think that's gonna happen. Too bad. Dunno what she's doing with Negan... better be good.

As for last night's ep. The bio-warfare ploy was weak in the comic and not all that great here, though the homage to Night of the Living Dead was alright. and although initially WTF? leaving the front door open, they did talk about the heat and having personally tried to sleep on a hot sweaty southern summer night- yeah, you'd leave the door open if at all possible.

The Henry thing was full on stupid though. I won't argue there. Woulda been bearable if he'd shot Gregory.


The longer the piece-of-shoe characters live, the more gratification derived from their gruesome demises.

At this point though ... they need to wrap up the entire show this season and be done with it. It's pretty embarrassing that I fast forward through about a third of the show to get ahead of the boring parts. Some of the recent episodes only took me ten minutes to 'watch'. Blecch.


And last week's finale felt like a series finale. No dangling threads that I can remember, a good place to set the series aside as complete. What do you all think?

With some exceptions, I think American TV has a strong tendency to stretch TV series beyond where they need to go so long as ratings are kept up. I don't think you can ever count on a series ending just because it comes to a good place, plot-resolution wise.

Far as I am concerned, TWD is concluded, pleasantly so. Anything afterwards will feel like Babylon 5 after its initial 5 season run on Paramount Network (or whatever it became).


You may be right, and yet, American TV persisted..

The Walking Dead’s Lauren Cohan Will Return For Season 9

Can't blame the cast and crew for wanting to get paid some more. ;)

I think it should have been. I think the secret cabal at Hilltop with Maggie and Jesus felt inconsistent with their characters. With ratings plummeting, season 9 will probably be the end.

I'm late to the party (I'm working through season 7 currently) but I have to say I really like the actor who plays Negen, he sure is a villainous piece of s%+@.
