A little EQ, a touch of reverb, slap on some compression and there. That'll get your dickbutt jiggling.

This is certainly something. Got to agree its the worst ep of the season.

Was this Danai's last episode? She didn't even get a goodbye with her son. They remember she has one right?

I feel they didn't even reshoot half of those scenes, but instead they used lovely CGI to swap characters

They had an episode about some of that in the other show, from what I remember. There's a small group that's somewhat organized and still has guns, helicopters, etc.

I don't think all the trash larpers were in on it though.

More bad news:

quote:

AMC announced Tuesday that its signature series, “The Walking Dead,” will end its current season one week earlier than planned, due to the coronavirus shutdown that has plagued a number of television series this year.

AMC said in a statement: “Current events have unfortunately made it impossible to complete post-production of The Walking Dead Season 10 finale, so the current season will end with its 15th episode on Sunday, April 5.”

According to the network, the planned finale of the postapocalyptic saga will appear “as a special episode later in the year.”


Can I just say something?
Quite often TWD characters are criticized because "no one would be that stupid during a global pandemic" and then you read about people IRL panic-buying and hoarding toilet paper; religious ministers in USA boasting about keeping their church services going while doctors are calling for social distancing; a drug addict president going on tv to spout BS about 'miracle cures' and getting back to normal before the pandemic has even peaked just to feed his own ego; oblivious bingo-callers on a fake news channel misusing words and making up their own gibberish 'talking points'; and the governor of a state still thinking it's a hoax or won't affect anyone in his state, and a thousand other idiots every day.

TL, DR: in real life right now there is a country going through a zombie viral apocalypse in which many are behaving dumber than Jadis and her trash larpers.

We know now for certain that authorities that have somehow actually prepared for a zombie scenario* would be undermined by severe supply shortages, people who insist against all rationality that normal life continue, and people who just manage to have even more brainworms than the zombies.

*According to Max Brooks many authorities have actually thought about zombie response

After civilization fails, I suppose anything is possible, but since the TWD show doesn't really make sense as anything but a soap opera I'm not sure it provides good guidance here.

Clearly Gabriel was the most sensible one at the start. He sheltered in place, cancelled large gatherings, and practiced social distancing.

She's a straight-from-the-comics addition and she's pretty cool



Honestly I'm really curious as to how they do this next arc.

BIG rear end COMIC BOOK SPOILERS


Looks like we're about to formally introduce the Commonwealth for next season, which was the final arc of the comic book. It also happened to be a big Rick & Michonne centered storyline in addition to also having Carl play a big part in its ending + epilogue. None of these characters are in the show moving forward so I can't wait to see how they gently caress this up!

Princess was introduced in issue #171 meaning they have 22 issues left to cover.

Yeah it seemed like an attempt at comedy relief or a lighter episode before the big finale showdown, but these 3 have survived the zombie apocalypse for over 10 years and shouldn't be so easily duped or make such rookie mistakes.

Princess seems like an over-the-top character from Z Nation. One of my favourite scenes was when she told them to call her princess and for a moment Ezekiel looked he was wondering if he should tell her about his past reign as a king.
