Remember when we used to complain about how long they had spent on the farm.

I'm doing a rewatch of Fear the Walking Dead (first three seasons) and it holds up pretty well. I remember getting frustrated at people like Madison and Travis but their character arcs make sense over the course of the show. Besides which, it just seems like the writers, cast and production crew put more effort into the thing compared to TWD.

people were knocking fear from the start. but i have no big complaints about the first season and the first half of the second season. then it gets a lot worse. then it gets better! then it gets worse.

I only watched the first 4 or 5 episodes of Fear the Walking Dead, but I thought it was pretty good and the writers didn't seem to be doing a lot of the nonsensical stretches that the main show was notorious for. I just didn't keep up with it because I was busy with other things, and then I heard from this thread about how it went ridiculous and just never returned to it.

As the above guy said, first 2.5 seasons are good, then it goes downhill a bit. Season 3 is solid. Season 4 was okay but it went off the rails with 5 and whatever they're up to now. It's definitely worth a watch.

description of today's episode:

Daryl and Carol come to a fork in the road and head their separate ways. Each going into their own type of survival mode, the easiest of challenges become much harder.

filler poo poo. boring

name of next week's episode:

Here's Negan

description:


Carol takes Negan on a journey, hoping to minimize the increasing tension. Negan reflects on the events that led him to this point and comes to a conclusion about his future.


unfortunately the description for that isn't that interesting, though i suppose the ending might be something. it's supposedly the season finale. i never read the original material so i know nothing about that stuff

What actually happened to Madison from Fear?

I really didn't mind S1-3 of that show and I would've been happy if TWD was at that level but no they had to crater Fear as well

LOL let me guess: the Conclusion he reaches is he has to leave on a soul searching quest because from a writing perspective he's too overpowered against the new antagonists

It will be interesting to see how he went from a nice guy to sadistic dick as a defense mechanism in the apocalypse. Unfortunately because this is a "COVID episode" we aren't going to see him interacting with students as a teacher, or building The Saviors.

It really feels like they are having trouble making the show during COVID so they are doing as few actors/locations as possible. The show has been kinda bad for a while but it was never this BORING.

Good morning!

at that end

Negan stays, gets rid of the bat for good, and basically welcomes the inevitability of Maggie killing him, to which Carol's like "well if that's what you want "

Will admit though it was cool having Jeffrey's real-life wife play his wife

Color me surprised though, I really thought they were gonna get rid of him. It will be interesting to see how he plays it out vs the new "Big Bad".

I haven't seen the Negan episode yet, but the one preceding it may hold the title of the most pointless episode of the series so far, and that is a hotly contested category.

I know, I know, poo poo isnt real

BUT I am watching episode 17 (I think the first ep for this half?) and somehow the survivalist dude set off a grenade that hurt him and no one else despite them being in a 3 foot radius around him

that episode is finally what got me to go "NOPE"

i'll probably watch the actual season finale but that episode was some of the worst TV i've ever watched, not even within the realms of hatewatching

Like how much cooler would that have been to have the guy reveal the pin way later so they have no time to react and have the grenade fizzle (because lol poo poo is old) and then have him pick up his knife and kill himself anyways

The editing in that clip makes it seem like the grenade explosion occurs over like 10 seconds, like it's just churning more and more earth out of the ground as it cuts from Maggie to Daryl and back.

You can upload a regular old MP4 to imgur and it will convert to gifv automatically, at least with browser

You have to use the lovely new beta stuff to get sound for the gifv though

Yeah I feel like some bean counter was like why have A/B plots? We can split that into two eps of extremely stretched A plots

Daryl ep was interesting but way too long and the priest/cleric episode was just another "are we the baddies? Nah, that can't be it"

Oh if you get an MP4 you also have a gifv, I think it's just a different instruction

When posting, it's just the url, no image tags or anything, just change the MP4 to gifv (it will add url tags which you want)

It won't show up in preview I think, you just gotta trust
