King Ezekiel and his kingdom just LARPing all day was the best thing about this show and they should've kept it up.

Merle returned and reunited with Daryl, it was quite a scene.

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.

"I'm Princess!"

"I'm...." PAUSE "....Ezekiel."

Princess is super cringe though. She makes Eugene look great in comparison though. The Negan/Drrrl bits in the one episode were good, as was his face/heel/face turn and crowning moment of awesome as the "new Alpha" for 30 seconds. But not feeling New Teddy Bear Negan.

I also was catching up on the last few episodes and realized I missed the entire Michonne episode. Seems like I didn't miss much though.

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

Michonne's episode was embarassing, unless they throw absurd amounts of money at Danai there's no chance she's coming back. She has better things to do

Bringing thread back from the dead.....
I really loved this show for the first few seasons, and I still liked it ok until Negan came along. He was too much a comic book type over the top villian for my taste. So I stopped watching, and I gathered the series got worse.

But now stuck at home I decided to go ahead and binge watch and catch up with the series and this thread simultaneously- this thread is fun to read along with my viewing too. Seasons 8 and 9 were lovely and I almost stopped but curiosity about how they'd handle Rick's departure made me start season 10.

Thank CHRIST I stopped reading the thread around page 300 so none of it has been spoilered for me-- it's freaking good again!!!

I can't believe it lol. I'm halfway through season 10, I have no idea who is going to die, or get together, or whatever. It's great. After I finish binge watching the rest of season 10 I'll post here and finish reading this thread. I don't care if I get poo poo on, 1st half of season 10, all of the whisperers arc, has been pretty entertaining and I never watch TV. Last good thing I watched before this was The Terror right after Chernobyl (because Chernobyl was so fantastic I wanted more Harris.)

I don't read comics so it's all unspoilt, lucky there
Also, Daryl, omg a sex or kissing makeout scene with a girl PLEASE GOD sploosh

I didnít respond to your earlier post but mentally thought ďwait till he hits the endĒ

The show isnít the wire but itís also not dexters later seasons either. I think itís a decently made zombie show you can just zone out to.

Everything is subject to the needs of intelligence, for geniuses like me. If we actually solve problems, people won't need me and people like me, and this is a travesty without end. You have to squeeze the poor so they know their place, and you fucking commies forget that.

Almost done with season 2 of Kingdom

Although it has some neat set pieces and they wear Cool Hats there is entirely too much monologue at stupid times. Also it's just tedious at times at how long it takes anyone to figure things out. Seo Be the nurse is the only intelligent person on that show.

For some reason z nation and black summer are the only shows in this vein that are like "okay let's run away/finish the problem right now and THEN we can shoot the poo poo"

And omfg I wish shows would stop having people cut their palms to draw blood wtf you idiots you need your grip

Whatever happened to that new "the walking dead the CW version" thing that supposed to be coming out? Did this franchise finally poo poo in enough peoples beds that they decided not to bother with it anymore, or is that stuff still coming down the pipe like a drowned-dead litter of unwanted kittens?

I think that regardless of how much further the quality of this show descends everyone that is still here at this point is here 'till the bitter end. Whether it's sunk cost, morbid fascination of just how bad can it get, academic interest of how not to write and shoot a TV show, or genuinely still finding something of value somewhere in there, whatever that may be - we'll still be here at the end.

The ultimate irony would be if we never got to see the finale because an honest-to-god real-life apocalypse happens. That would actually piss me off.

Look at the end of this post! From 2017!

the delayed ep is on amcs DTV thing. it was pretty meh. i don't think i'm down for 30 more of these, the other two shows, a possible spin off show, and then whatever the movies plan is at this point. the premise of run into group, fight group, is just spinning wheels for me at this point

i didnt bother with the new shows pilot, no clue on that

Hay hay hay!

I watched TWD Teens.

Christ it was frustrating because it again ruins any potential. Who knew teen characters could be annoying.

And of course, at the end they just destroy another community because Ďnothing lives while the dead doí or some bullshit.

I have to admit I laughed at the reveal that the little girl ran towards the scared woman; therefore leading to her shooting the mum dead.

I could maybe skip through a handful of episodes, but they really should just let it go at this point. I donít think they know who their target audience is.

I also laughed at how they went the whole series premiere without showing a single actual zombie kill or fight scene. Whoever said that spinoff was being hyped as Walking Dead For Young Adults wasn't kidding, the curses are the only reason that premiere was rated above TV-14 because it sure wasn't gore or excessive violence

The target audience is...me.

Good start for the new series. Interview with showrunner Matt Negrete
Good episode for the end of the Whisperers arc. Angela Kang continues bringing the series back from the dead
ends of Scott Gimple.

And next weekend....FEAR The Walking Dead returns.

It's a good time to be a zombie watcher.

That new show was somehow worse than TWD, holy poo poo. 90% lovely monologues by these dumb kids they don't bother to try to get you invested in

And the end to the Whisperers was awful. Cool why didn't you just infiltrate the horde and pick them off months ago if it was that easy? And they lead the horde away for literally the entire day just to cut back to whatever building they're in... and they haven't done anything to escape typical TWD garbage continuity

Those two eps back to back have me never watching this show again, so I goes there's a silver lining

Welcome to Disney XD Everyone!

I will say exactly one good thing about the season 10 finale: I liked Beta's death scene

From his perspective he dies the most FUCKIN METAL way imaginable And then we cut to Darryl and Negan looking on like "Yeah whatever that dude was nuts, I can't believe I bought every one of his albums"

I feel like that was the best way to show how weird and culty the whisperers were one last time before they stopped being a threat. And a commentary on how the show sees itself while we the audience look at what's actually on screen

This is unrelated to the show, but I had this weird dream where I was walking through an abandoned school building where it was freezing because the power was out in the winter, then I found people in the basement and kids were climbing into musical instrument cases and trying to be really quiet, so I was like "wait what's going on" and then a zombie popped its head through the door and I kept slamming the door until its head burst open full of guts

anyway what I'm saying is I could write better content than The Walking Dead in my sleep. Have a spooky October
