It kinda owns that they found out what was happening to the show and a bunch of them were like lmao kill me now

I know it won't happen but it would be funny if El salvidad was the Good Trucker

I stopped watching at Nick's death and now read this thread to validate my decision in doing so. It sounds like I chose...wisely.

If the SWAT truck was working, why did they decide to leave it and scavenge a shittier truck?

It ran out of gas like 3 blocks away when the guy stole it.

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

So I was wondering what that SWAT thing must use for fuel.

So it looks a lot like a Lenco BearCat. It was kind of hard to find their mpg, but a couple newspapers were reporting 8 to 10 MPG.

That might be at their best too, let alone using aging fuel, and poor maintenance of the vehicle. Like, if you are using this thing, you need to have some idea in universe how it stays fueled. And then you can pull that out from under their feet. Like "We have an INSANE AMOUNT OF FUEL" ok cool, won't wonder about the fuel too much. "Oh no our fuel tank leaked!" ok now there's a reason you ran out of gas. Instead of "I always have enough fuel for some reason, oh no now I don't have enough fuel for some reason."

So was the guy just walking down the road with a can full of diesel just in the off chance he would find an abandoned armored personnel carrier?


If so, well played guy.

I guess it's just too soon, but I can't help still seeing Aaron Stanford as James Cole. Probably also the fact that his hair and clothes are the same. It kinda takes me out of it, especially seeing him as a supporting character instead of a lead.

The whole alligator situation was a bit dumb.

Especially when you consider that they were on an island and could have easily just rowed across the opposite side, but nope, they go right through where they are luring in zombies to ensure that they will be going right past the gator.

I got 99 problems but a witch ain't one.



Last night's episode had to be the worst of either series and the filthy woman has to be worst character I've ever seen in any show. The intro with her "backstory" just made me embarrassed for everyone responsible. Her husband dies and she walks over to the side of the road where they proceed with a goofy "going mad" sequence straight out of loving Ren & Stimpy. Now she goes around killing people but instead of doing it out of spite for the world that screwed her over they feel the need to give her this ridiculous justification that she's killing people who help others because that's just making them weak. Except nobody helped her husband and now he's dead so whatever. Forget about that though because the episode is really about Morgan being trapped in a hospital with all these new characters that we've yet to be given a reason to care about. I had a hard time stopping myself from finding distractions on my phone during that whole plot line.

I wasn't happy with how the first half of the season played out but there were at least a few moments that made me hopeful they could make something worthwhile once they got killing the old cast out of their system. Sadly this whole arc has just been a dumpster fire.

Can't help thinking they would have been better off giving Morgan his own spin off show instead of this mess of a show. Let him run away from Alexandria and encounter another band of survivors in the Midwest or whatever. FTWD with Madison, Strand, Alicia, Nick, El Salvidad, etc., was a great very good show, but they threw all that away for no discernible reason. I don't know why I'm still watching.

It's a parody of the Captain Marvel poster; they get a pass on this one. All of their other official posters for this season have been pretty poor though.
