Completely on Negans side. So quick to forget how Ricks group basically murdered an entire outpost of Saviors in their sleep.

Yep.

That gunfight in Alexandria was the least credible and badly choreographed I can remember seeing. Loads of people blazing away at each other with all sorts of guns, up to and including assault rifles and hardly anybody getting hit, especially amongst the good guys.

This show has finally completed the journey up its own asshole. I'm not going to bother with it going forward.


Pretty much where I am too, was going to try and stick it out but I won't be watching the next season.

Really am just watching this now because I've seen it up to this point. It's pretty s*** really. Hope they end it soon.

Same. It’s awful and I find myself complaining about how stupid every episode has become. I should just stop watching.. <erk>

8x1 was the 100th (or a similar milestone) episode and the creators speaking on ‘The Talking Dead’ said it’s just the beginning. They’re really going to milk it for as long as they can. <erk>

As long as they keep getting favourable ratings they’ll keep churning them out and replacing the cast as they go along, see NCIS, Greys Anatomy etc.

I recently rewatched some of the early episodes from S1 and it was head and shoulders above what they serve up now.

I honestly preferred last season and it’s boringness to this. It’s become a truly awful show.

You knew throughout the whole of tonight’s episode that none of the main cast were at risk. The walkers were absolutely no threat at all and a crippled Ezekiel was actually somehow escaping them.

The woman whose name I have forgotten.. fighting 5 guys whilst hidden behind a van.. she doesn’t move for about 5 minutes and they just keep firing at the van rather than making any effort to flank. <laugh>

It’s hilariously bad.

My fav part of this episode? When Carol opened the door with that button. Electricity?

Is it just me or are they using hammy B-movie style CG to replicate the gunshots and ricochets? It's just awful.

This was really bad.

Anyone else hoping for a zombie tiger though? <diva>

I'm just hoping that they kill that annoying little rat Karl.

People need to remember this is based on a comic series with an already established story line, complaining about main characters not dying is the same as complaining that Batman hasn't been killed in a Batman movie, characters die for the most part when they die in the comics, there are only a few exceptions to the source material (regarding character deaths) in the actual show. The only person living past their comic lifespan is Carol and Judith, they even killed off one of the comics main characters long before their actual comic death, the person actually died on the show before she was even written out of the comic.

Karl not dying is one thing, but it has still turned into an average at best show. As far as I understand it the comic is still going with no plans to end it. Does that mean that the show will just continue to lumber along until the end of time? Being based on a comic doesn't mean that it has to follow an established story line, or continue indefinitely.

Comic books and TV are completely different mediums. What works in one won’t always work in the other.

Don, who is the character who died early in the show?

There was Rick's partner who was also a cop (that got Rick's wife pregnant, probably).
