    Same here! He's hysterical as well.

    I think the writers were sort of hinting at doing the lame cop out Lost ending in the beginning of this season of WD. All those flash forward scenes with Rick as an older man. I know it's coming- they were dead all along in purgatory.

    Eps1-3 Bleh. Might as well have been an advertisement for the NRA.
    Ep4 not bad. The humbling of Ezekiel was closest the show has come to anything of substance in a long time. Grieved the CGI tiger's death more than the last 10+ cast members they've killed off.
    Ep5 was decent. Enjoyed the Negan & Gabriel bit and the Savior lieutenant meeting with sleazy Gregory.

    Those 2 slightly got my hopes up for this season... then the downward spiral returned ending with Sun night's trainwreck.
    Did we really need another Eugene-centered episode thrown in for good measure? Enough of that guy already.

    I think Eugene is interesting. I'm liking Rick again. I've always wished for Carl's end, and now I'm kinda bummed that he got bit. Morgan is still an awesome dude.

    I like King E. Glad he found his big beautiful balls again.

    Everyone who dies from a bite deserves it. You've been dealing with zombies for years and still walk around with a t-shirt and jeans? Go be zombie food you dumb shits. Even people in prison are smart enough to make decent armor out of newspaper and duct tape.

    Anyone still watching this?

    Just read that the viewership is down to about 6 million when it was over 17 million before. I guess killing off so many main people and turning from sort of a zombie show into just people killing each other with guns in god awful shootouts finally did them in. Now Maggie's contract is up and AMC won't pay her what she wants so she's probably gone as well.

    I haven't been keeping up with the show but...

    I see they killed off Carl and are still just fighting with that hipster Negan so I didn't miss much.

    That's what happens when you turn a beloved zombie comic book franchise into nothing more than a people killing battle royal. Most of the ppl that dedicated to this were in it for the horror aspect.

    Against my better judgement. Being pot committed to this piece of garbage has long passed the point of being painful.

    Suspension of disbelief no longer sustainable.
    Dude tumbles down a flight of steps with 20+ people sleeping on the floor below and not a single person wakes up? ... yeah ok

    This recaps all the laughable bullshit from last night's ep (spoilers if anybody cares):
    https://io9.gizmodo.com/light-nights-the-walking-dead-was-so-stupid-i-cant-stan-1824072309

    "You know what it is" "You know what it is" "You know what it is" "You know what it is" ugh... enough already.
    We get it: Morgan is damaged. Old news.
    Pulling him over to spin-off might its boost viewers for a split second, but ain't nearly enough to save that sinking ship.

    I forgot when I stopped watching, but it was definitely before Negan's arrival. I knew I was falling off of the show before then when I would just stockpile the episodes on the DVR and try to binge watch them in time to catch up to the next season or half-season.

    @Anti Social Andy I agree on LOST. My wife and I bulldozed through that on DVD, but it definitely ran outta gas with that last season. Those side-flashes were odd and what they did with the Locke character and Smoke Monster was weak. I enjoyed Season 3 the most for some reason...pre-hidden hand-wheel under the island.

    After several years of promising myself that I was done and then stepping right back in anyway... I gave up 2 eps in last season and haven't looked back. Whew!

    Pretty much exactly what I did. Caught a few minutes of last week's episode and couldn't believe how bad it was. I mean just the look of it alone was awful. Looks like they are skimping on the production values and there was a laughable green screen car ride at the end that just boggled my brain.

    Yeah I think I should just continue with the comic. I haven't read it since last year but I was surprised at Carl dying since he's
    a huge part of the Whisperers storyline that I was in the middle of when I stopped reading
    and I was really looking forward to that.

    That was a great twist.

    I 'lost' interest when, after months on the island and having explored extensively . . . they seemed to find a whole other settlement just around the corner! Meh!

    Anyone watch this anymore?

    I'd guess no based off the ratings.

    I sort of caught up recently. It is pretty interesting after that more than several years time jump they just had. Cool to be introduced to a new world without gas powered vehicles or unlimited ammo like before but I am sure it will revert back to multiple episodes with nothing at all happening. I enjoyed the show when it started because of the survival aspect more than anything else so when it turned into nothing but a soap opera about everyone's feelings and people just fighting people I quit. Right now it seems more about survival again which is fun. The end of the new episode with the talking zombies was fun too! Maybe killing off Carl and getting rid of Rick will make thing fresh again but that little Judith kid is getting annoying.

    Guess this thread is still all tumbleweeds.

    I just caught up with the last season since the finale in tonight. It's a much better show than it was for a few seasons but not close to how good it was in the beginning. The episodes that played like garbage war movies or A-Team 80's shootouts are gone. No one has ammo or vehicles so at least that is more interesting. They killed off most of the main cast this season.
    Rick is gone. Maggie is gone. Carl is still dead. Tara, Jesus, Henry, Carl's Girlfriend, The Highway Men and a bunch of other people all died at the same last week.
    Negan is still in jail. The new main badguy is actually kind of cool. Big dude who wears a zombie face mask to blend in with the dead.

    Plus the number of child murders is through the roof as of late.

    That was the most do nothing see nothing season finale I've ever seen. It feels like this whole season could have happened it 3 episodes.

    The fact they now insert 10 second mini clips of the show in the middle of the commercials just to make you stop fast-forwarding is fucking ridiculous.

    @trueadrn I've found the post-Rick/rebooted show far more enjoyable than the miserable seasons that proceeded it. Haven't started on S10 yet.

    As far as Fear goes, you're prob better off leaving it wherever you left off. It's basically a lost cause.

    That is how a lot of people feel about Walking Dead, including myself. I think the saying is 'Flogging a dead horse' but in this case its, 'Flogging an undead horse'. ;)
