My problem with the show is that their appears to be no end game. If Rick and his crew end up killing the Governor, then what? They take over Woodberry and live happily ever after? If the show is about survival how long can you do that before it becomes repetitive? That's what I'm talking about when I say that the show is going around in circles. Where is the show going?


The entire point of Walking Dead is that there is no "end game". There's no happy ending, There's been 85 or so comics and they have not run out of stories there yet.

That may work for the comics, but you can't do that with TV. People are going to get bored after a while. And when you have a show that spins its wheels and goes nowhere, people are going to tune out.

walking dead needs a countdown timer and a button that has to be pushed before it reaches zero and then people will have a reason to watch

and polar bears

Fitty I think you might be the only one complaining about this... I think they have plenty of drama to keep it interesting.

Yeah but I can see where he's coming from.

Look at the Sopranos and Lost.

I mean, I don't think it's unreasonable to ask... and sure, if the writing for the show (plot wise) goes downhill, any show can spiral down. So far that hasn't been the case...

My point is, even without the hope of a cure (which they do technically still have at this point) there is plenty of room to move around with the plot.

Deal with the Gov and Woodbury
Obviously there are still some gov't people with tanks and helos out there.
Other settlements and groups.
Rick's craziness
Living in or leaving the prison.
Flashbacks
etc.

i hate the way the show is going season 2 lost a lot of people because they were trying to but up individual characters and relationships while looking for sophia who actually shouldn't even be dead shes a main character in the comics but i'm pretty sure at one point they're just gonna say fug the comics and make up their own poo.

I think they've already long passed that point.

This. Absolutely this.

The show and the comic are completely different entities at this point.
