The Walking Dead

Recommended Posts

After defending the hell out of the show for years, I'm starting to feel the frustration. Killing off who they've now killed off....last straw for me. 

They kept Shane beyond what they did in the comic, fine with it.

They introduced show characters that didn't exist in the comic, fine with it.

They jacked up Andrea's character, then hinted at her becoming more like her comic counterpart, fine with it. 

Killed off Dale needlessly...first mistake for me. 

Completely screwed up Andrea and Governor in just one season. Second mistake. Killed Andrea, which was a mistake but also a mercy because she was so awful at that point.

Screwed the prison storylines up so much that it became drama for drama's sake. 

Tyrese. Just terrible.

Jacked up the post-prison arc.

Changed the hunters but it worked decent enough that it was actually enjoyable.

Then we have Alexandria which was a mix of well done and clunky.

Negan's intro was the last really good aspect of the show. 

 

Gimple just wants to do his own thing with the show. Darabont leaving started the collapse. He knew what he wanted to do with the characters and story. Darabont tried to keep the tone similar to the comic. Gimple wants to make a TV drama with a zombie back drop.

Not just that, but it is a complete departure from the character that's been established on the show and in the source material.  You take one of the most capable survivors and have them bitten on the stomach in a confrontation with 2 walkers? It's just bad writing.

And this is what people get when they wish for the writers to switch it up from the source material.

I think I'm done with the show, finally...

It is just dumb. The whole point of TWD was basically that it was/is Rick and Carl's story. Everyone else is supporting cast. To kill off Carl, who is basically Rick's motivation from beginning to end, is just so dumb I can't even begin to go into it anymore. Gimple is terrible.

The only thing that would save the show, and the comic if they go this road in the future, would be if they just end up making Negan the main character.

I feel the same way...Honestly, I haven't even watched the last episode, but I know what happens to Carl. Why the fug would you kill off a character that is so huge to the story. I LOVE the comics but this is just too much of a veer away from the entire story line. At this point, I don't know if I'm going to keep watching. Stupid move on Gimple's part. IMO, I think there are a lot of fans that feel the same way that we do and they've just lost a good amount of people.

I haven't watched since about the third episode of this season, but I wouldn't be surprised if this is just another lame stunt by Gimple and Co. and Carl ends up living somehow.

I know the actor's dad has been all butt hurt about his son being "fired", but I still wouldn't be surprised if it's all just dumb bullshit.

So disappointing to see this show fall off a cliff and become basically some low budget extended SyFy original movie.

They can't have him bitten by a zombie in the gut and survive.   If they pull some Carl is the cure move I.....well, I won't give a fug because I'm done. 

Dang.  HBO should of done TWD.  would have been less lame.

The podcast I listen to said Gabriel is sick but not dead and the doctor is with him.  Watch him be immune and the doctor create something with Gabriel's blood to save Carl.  Really stupid idea, which is exactly why it is a good bet.

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.
