They say the midseason finale is the most shocking thing ever, but I think at this point the most shocking thing ever would be if they put out another good season.

I think I am fine not watching.  I'll just have my wife give me the summary.    I somehow doubt it will be very shocking or good.  Just another cliffhanger.

There have always been issues like this, but they were way more isolated in seasons 3-6.

I don't remember noticing the weapons not actually firing until the last 2 seasons. It's like they figure it's cheaper to just do the bullet strikes digitally and figured it's not worth it for the guns to fire blanks or air. Even Designated Survivor has actioning in their weapons. To me it's like a slap in the face. "Suck it down stupid" is what I feel like they're saying to me. Nevermind the constant "Why are they doing that?" questions from me.

To me it falls into that category with the magic bottle rocket, the flipping van, headshots while riding on a moving vehicle, etc. They have gotten lazier, not just in the way you're talking, but overall.

they also seem to put the focus on the premiere/finales and think that by "shocking/surprising" you at the bookends of starts and breaks they can literally do poop in between. 

I mean the opening episode this year showed Rick crying like a bitch in the near future.  I'm sure the YUGE shocker will be them capping one of Rick's peoples to show how super serious Negan is now.

The huge shocker rumor that's making it's way around the Internet doesn't make sense in context with the season thus far... at least not in the sense of the foreshadowing in the first episode and how the series typically builds up to such a moment. I'm fully expecting another fake out for the midseason finale, only much worse than the dumpster.

The ending of episode 7 didn't do anything to pique my interest in the finale. It made me think "well, now we're back where we were at the beginning of episode 1." At this point, I'm only watching the finale to see how bad it can get.

The quality from season one and this season is many many miles apart.. too bad AMC cheaped out on this show.

One of the worst episodes I've ever watched. Literally nothing happened. 89 min of bs just to get to the last minute and even despite killing off a major character they still botched the death scene by not having one lol. They somehow made this worst then the season 6 finale.

It was so obvious in the beginning who was going to die. I felt nothing about his or hers demise. ..no spolier

Yeah it was. I called it back at the premiere though.. They show their hand too much

well, I finally watched since it was the midseason finale.  Horrible episode.  Same ol problems on repeat.

The whole Hilltop roadstop was horrible.  Redshirt killing, their revenge was so weak......no way they would just kill a red shirt and tell them to please go back home.   Negan's arrival at Alexandria also was comically weak given what happened.    Rick and company had once again mowed down possible hundreds of these people and there response is to kill a redshirt and be frankly polite in there revenge?  "All out war/Negan" has been the death of this show.  They haven't known what to do with this plot.  Maybe it works in the comics but the TV show is butchering all of it. 

Carl stuff was obvious.   Given it is a deviation from the comic....it just means Rick and Negan likely continue to get worse and worse. 

I think my wife will still watch.  I might have her update me on what happens if I bother tuning into the season finale for giggles.   But I probably won't......Carl's death likely cements the fact they will stick with the Negan comic ending and that is literally the one things I thought the TV show should deviate from.

They definitely need to bring in some fresh blood to clean it up.  The editing was bad, the shots were too dark, and Carl's death is stupid. I don't like what this does to Rick's character moving forward. Tara and Aaron's arc was beyond stupid, and where did all the Garbage Pail Kids go?  Did they all just die? The show is pretty much beyond fuged at this point. I dunno if I even care to keep watching, and I hated Chandler Riggs. I'm guessing Kirkman has completely checked out on the show to work on his 50 other projects.

Quick overall take bc I've heard about the happenings after finally giving up on the show mid-last season:

I was lured in like no other as a zombie flick fan but Season 2 gave me reservations.  After getting into the graphic novel side of things, it got me optimistic for things to come.  Season 3 gave flashes of greatness but then the show just totally flopped on the Governor.  The show just never evolved.  Every place looks the same, stories were the same, and they didn't learn from their mistakes.  Honestly, Season 1 is the only great season and the rest of the series has great episodes every now and again.  I
