    Fear is weak, too.

    Best bet for future solid Walking Dead entertainment is the Rick Grimes trilogy flicks, with Danai and, I suspect, Jeffrey showing up to rally support.

    Stopped watching few years ago.
    I dig Norman's show, though. He had Morgan and Lincoln on last night. It was pretty funny.
    Yeun is on next week.

    I found last night to be a tad boring. I want to be invested in some of these characters, but the sheer size of the cast and Rick moving on I just...don't.

    Even though I recognize the sunk cost fallacy, I tend to follow through on shows. Walking Dead may be an exception for me if it keeps up.

    Relax Francis. Used to watch it, gave up after Negan arrived.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I did that with Dexter and learned my lesson.

    I don't understand when a show KNOWS it is doing a final season why it always feels like they just figure that out on episode 8 of 12. I get the end they were going for with Dexter, but the execution was poor.

    Here is Walking Dead's problem--there is no real stated goal to root for. There's no search for a cure, no search to write a new Constitution. I mean, even if these communities just started rebuilding the United States, you'd have plenty of stories to mine.

    Instead of the latter, they skipped the creation of a council and all that stuff that could've been interesting by fast forwarding several years just to do...the same stuff. There are bad guys, they are scary, we have to fight them.

    The time jump was needed in order to get this thing out of a rut but you are right, they jumped ahead only to end up in a story line that is repetitive.

    I thought the Negen/Judith story line was interesting, especially as he lost his daughter and she lost her fathers). And while I am not a huge fan of episodes that focus on one character, I think the issue of Negen escaping then finding that there really isn't anything out there and finally returning, was a pretty important storyline to explore in more detail. If they are going to make this interesting they are going to have to get Negen out of that cell tho

    Daryl becoming a leader is a really tricky thing f they to navigate and frankly I think it is the whole reason they killed off Jesus..to make room for Daryl as a leader and increase Reedus screen time. Still a big mistake in my book to kill off the most interesting characters and leave us with Tara and Aaron.

    I don't think we'll ever see Maggie back even tho that new series Whisky Cavalier looks HORRIBLE. How can you shoot 13 episodes of an hour long series and not have enough good scenes to put together half a dozen commercials?



    So I think the producers know that they are on the downside of this series and the best they can do is maintain it to keep enough interest to launch the Rick movies which will probably feature the Michonne character as well since she is leaving.
