That these characters haven't developed yet, and you should stop being illiterate and go read the comics. Also that the writers are butchering the characters and the plots.

I should of likely just read the comic and never bothered with the stupid show.  I am down to almost literally no TV outside of sporting events.  GOT and TWD only things left in the rotation.  GOT about done.  Just can't get TWD after devoting years to it.  Keep thinking one day they will hire good writers.

another horrible episode.   They will milk this whole season of outpost battles and give us a big one at the end of the season.  More of doing the same old story archs over and over.  Oh look, Morgan probably hit his crazy switch again to not be a killing machine.  WOW, didn't see that coming. 

If this happens

I know my wife will officially be done.

Man, I could see that happening. Or maggie loses her baby and raises Gracie.

You guys really hate this show. Its always been an up and down pairing of good acting with bad, decent action with shitty decision making by the characters.... like why the fug are Ezekiel and company just standing in the middle of the field when they havent cleared the big building?  Why not just let the zombie hoard eat the imprisoned saviors? What good could possibly come by taking them to the hill-top or by letting Gregory into the hill-top?

I feel like a big chunk of the saviors should be gone at this point.

Interested to see if the garbage people re-appear or if the all-female crew at the coast shows up to save the day at some point.

Seasons 3-6 were awesome. They did a great job with those, except for Beth's hospital arc which was okay.

I agree that the comics are in a lull right now and the only character I really give a poo about is Negan.

this past episode was pretty good, but overall a bore. 

If death is the outcome, why do I care? I get not following the traditional storyline, but this should have ended 2 seasons ago.

seriously? what refection of reality is it showing? tbh reality has passed the concept..

I'm getting bored as well.  All this internal struggle with every damn character. That's the only plot right now besides firing millions of rounds at each other that they magically keep finding. Maybe Eugene is plugging away making bullets for the saviours

They really needed to expedite the time jump, to let some of these characters go and bring in new/fresh arcs.

 

I only halfway watched this week and don't feel like I missed much.

Why kill Judith now, when they have had plenty of opportunities in the past. If they go that route, it shows that the showrunners do things without any plans. Even introducing another baby at this point, one that seems pretty irrelevant even, is just crap.

As PSC said, 3-6 were pretty good, and I would even give 1-2 a fair nod. But the comics just killed a somewhat interesting character off in a pretty cheap way, too, so I'm starting to wonder if even Kirkman is losing it.

For the comic readers,

I think I'm gonna like Princess. She reminds me of Negan without the sadism. Did anyone else here catch that she mentioned her brother in present tense, not past, like he's still alive. Kind of odd that Eugene's group didn't take note. I even wondered if they could be setting her up as someone to attach Negan to.

God, Scott Gimple is a fugging moron. No wonder this show has turned to utter poo.

This is how he described the terrible first three episodes:

"Three unbelievably intense, unrelenting episodes [are next] that pushed the actors and the crew, and the producers, everybody," is the only hint Gimple will give.

"These next three episodes were just one thing after the other after the other. It is very, very intense. It moves very, very quickly," he said. "When I was with the mixers, we definitely were hurting our ears quite a bit just with the pounding music, and the intensity, and the walkers, and the gunfire, and the yelling. The next three episodes might be the most intense string of episodes we’ve had."

a lot of LOST issue IMO show themselves in TWD.  What made LOST suck (and the first several seasons of LOST is as good as TV can get)....is LOST went into the show with no plan or map of where to go.   

TWD has no clue where they are going....and when you don't have an end game in mind to build the show to you are literally just a shitty day time soap. 

So even if they are following the comic....they still don't know an end game and it will always impact their story telling.  Because in a sense, they always will want to play it safe with characters and plot because they don't know where it may go.

Lost was awful from the first 15 minutes until the very end. Lost had a plan on how to end it, but then everyone guessed what it was (Limbo) and they decided to switch it up into a "shared consciousness death dream" or wtf ever.  Nothing ever mattered on Lost. The acting was insultingly bad, the quirks were forced and meaningless, it was all just stupid. It is a perfect example of The Emperor's New Clothes. They never had any intention of resolving their major arcs, or even explaining why they were arcs. Catering to Lost fans is crippling TWD.

Agree with the LOST comparison, except peak LOST is head and shoulders above peak TWD. At least LOST had characters you actually gave two poos about.

As convoluted as LOST got towards the end, it was never as poorly made all around as these last couple seasons of TWD.

reddit on gun battles:

 

"They've always been bad but man has it gotten worse. Youtube channels do more realistic weapons. People running around shooting full auto M14's with no recoil at people 2 feet away and missing. People using sheetmetal as cover from 7.62 nato guns. Everyone using full auto in an apocalypse. Every gun having no recoil and only sometimes have the bolt moving. No one ever reloading. Nothing about the gunplay is remotely good or realistic

Its gotten so jarring that even someone with a COD understanding of weapons would notice. A show with WD's production value should have much better weapon effects. It feels like im watching some kids grade 12 film class project, and not the second most popular show on tv. Hard to take an episode seriously when the gunfights happen 15 feet away and the people are missing like a cartoon"

 

"Agreed the gun fights are pretty bad. Endless ammunition and everyone has the worst aim ever. Last weeks episode was literally 50% of two groups just shooting at each other"
