  Spoiler Alert!

looks like Rick Grimes will be put on trial (along with everyone else) by the Commonwealth for the crimes they've committed in the new arc.

 

I don't know why but I read that in Uncle Jesse's narrator voice (from the Dukes of Hazard)

I just finally remembered to read it yesterday. I'm not sure I'm trusting the Commonwealth at this point, and I'm not sure what to think about the Michonne twist.

Overall, though, I think this could be a fresh new arc that could draw me back in.

Unreal how amateurish the production of this show has become. The writing, editing, pacing is like a bad student film.

Maybe the new show runner will turn it around next season.

I'm speechless.


I've defended this show both here and elsewhere. Are there still redeeming qualities of this show? Yes. Can the show, on the whole, be redeemed? Not with current leadership in place. 

The first 2 seasons were great to me because it was shot PERFECTLY for the atmosphere it was going for. Visceral, real, chaotic. Perfect. Season 3 starts seeing a shift from this shooting style to a more "stock" television show. It looked like it was shot on a set the entire time because it was. There were great moments and great shots and it was cool overall, but less so than the first two.

Then season 4 and 5 slowly chop deeper into feeling more like a television show. The action started looking more and more hokey. The dialogue fell off tremendously. The editing and overall production just became overall poor.

Season 6 and 7 had many high points, but it got harder and harder to stick with it. More bad editing, more lackluster episodes, more poor dialogue. The ONLY truly remarkable thing being Negan in that timespan.

Season 8 has been all over the place. I have simply lost interest. Killing Carl was the final straw for me.

This episode in particular, JESUS it was rough. The edits just....wow. You can't buy the emotion of the scene because of the "flash forwards" which turn out to be Carl dreams. That's supposed to be the thing that jerks you a bit at the end. Then you get reminded of Negan still being out there and how Carl dreams of his redemption and acceptance into the group, but it was just bad. Bad bad bad.

This show is dying if it isn't dead already.

I usually get pretty hyped for twd but tonight I was just pulling for someone to put a stick in Carls eye and let's move on.....

I'm thankful next season will move in a new direction

At least they didn't drag it out over 3-4 weeks. And they brought a new kid into the act.

 

that was one of many unintentionally funny parts

how does a 10 year old sneak around there so two of the biggest badasses on the show don't even notice him?

I have up the show where Tara went to the beach people.  I still listen to a podcast on it because I like the guys who do it (they do a bunch of shows I watch) and read on here.  It is still fine to hear people bitch about it.  I look at those of you still hanging on as this thing spirals and I see that younger, more naive me watching late season Dexter

It really is just crazy how far the show has fallen off.  I was discussing it with some friends the other day and everyone felt the same way...  They kept watching through this season but I watched the premiere in October and when they met up with multiple chances to kill a vulnerable Negan, but instead give him each of those opportunities to babble on with some meaningless, self-absorbed, completely unbelievable monologue, I just quit.  Negan COULD have been a great character, but I'd rather them kill him off at that point than continue on the way they were because the show has gotten so far off the rails.  I've only read the reactions here and read reviews after certain episodes since that premiere in October, and know I'm not missing anything.  I'm just so disappointed in how badly they've mangled this show.

If you can kill Carl off, you COULD be killed Negan, or allowed Glenn or Abraham to live, or Tyrese, or any other thing fans would've wanted to see...  instead, they just kill off any symbol or reason to believe things will resolve in their universe.

Maybe the show is actually a zombie...strong, if not great at first, slowly weakening over time, before finally just limping along needing to be put out of its misery.

It's gotten to the point where I actually judge people if they till think TWD is good TV.  Last night, in what "should" have been this crazy big moment, biggest character ever dying...and I couldn't wait for it to end.
