TWD Season 7

Recommended Posts

Okay, so I am a little late to the party.  I just finally watched the episode (when you work 6am-8pm M-F you watch stuff on tape delay).

I honestly was not a major fan of the episode.  To be truthful, I found Negan to be annoying more than anything.  In the spirit of full disclosure, I am not a comic reader and my opinion of the show was severely tarnished recently due to multiple things, the dumpster and the cliffhanger being the two most glaring.  Watching it sometimes feels like a chore the way Dexter did in the end or Homeland does right now.  I use to love it and I see the potential, but the showrunners have bumbled so many opportunities that I not longer trust them.  So I admit, I probably have some negative bias going on (although I also think comic readers may have bias because of how much they love Negan from the comics, but I digress).

I tihnk that the death scene(s) would have had a much greater impact if shown last season (or if shown as an Abe last year, Glenn the this year surprise sort of thing).

I will say that the best part of the episode by far was Lincoln's acting.  His performance on top of the RV, as well as during the Carl scene were both top notch.  It would have been a lot tougher had I any care for Carl whatsoever, sadly Chandler Riggs is not believable as a person.  Still, he was excellent.

I really hope though that we do not have to wait until the middle of the second half for things to get going again though.  They have to stop drawing things out as long as possible.  I wish this thing was on HBO, of course I wish everything I watch was on HBO.

yeah chandler riggs is awful.  most of the stuff you're complaining about doesn't happen in the comics.

Is the Negan on the show an accurate portrayal?  I have heard so many good things about him and was surprised at how annoying I found him.

Negan in the comics will always be the real Negan to me.  But I liked the job he did with the character. In the comics Negan is more imposing and less charismatic I think. He is definitely supposed to be annoying though.

Biggest gripe I have with JDM's Negan is that he's not as physically imposing as comic Negan. Too slim in the hips/no upper body

This is why he'll never really be Negan to me.  But he does the part justice otherwise.

And yes, a tiger.  Now everyone can say the show has jumped the shark.

well, did he really need to take the tiger on a night time stroll to go see his new buddy?
