...That finale was utterly stupid. Took one of the greatest bits of the comic, and butchered it by making it a cliffhanger.

Putting aside the fact that I'd already been told that it was going to end with said cliffhanger, and I've never read the comics, why is it so stupid? I mean, sure, they added an extra 20 minutes to the episode basically just to let Jefferey Dean Morgan ramble, but... I thought it was executed fine.

They could've cut literally 60 of the 90 minutes of this finale, and nothing of value would have been lost.

All of that being said, however. That's not say I completely hated it.

 

JDM is a fantastic Negan. And having a new villainous character in the form of STEVEN OGG (GTA V's Trevor : D) who in all likelihood will be sticking around for a while, is a major plus in my book.

 

But they couldn't help themselves. So they ruined this. Just like I knew and feared they would.

 

I don't have favorite seasons of this show. I have favorite episodes. If that gives you any indication of what I think of the show's quality. I swear, if it wasn't for this show and FTWD basically bankrolling shows like Better Call Saul , and (soon) Preacher, or my parents basically begging me to give them hints about what might happen later, I'd probably wash my hands of it altogether at this point until we get a new showrunner.

 

How other people feel about Steven Moffat for Doctor Who, I feel for Scott Gimple.

 

 

I'm not gonna say the show's objectively bad, because nothing is objectively bad aside from BvS. I guess I'm used to a different class of show (Fargo, BCS/BB, ATLA) The self-contained kind. And I made the mistake of thinking this would be that kind back when it first started, since it seemed like the comic was winding down to a climax. Except it's just kept going.

I dunno, I thought the pacing was sloooow in this ep. Like... too slow.

So yeah, AMC talks hard about how ruthless they let TWD be. But it's all bark and no bite.

I think AMC is trying to be HBO and trying to make Walking Dead their Game of Thrones, ya know? Only they don't have the brass GoT and HBO do. Oh, and AMC is cable network, not a premium network lol

But that's the thing though. AMC has generally pushed the boundaries as far as cable can go. Look no further than the 'real' horror tones of BB's drug underground, and TWD's disturbing practical effects.

They've shown a ridiculous amount of leniency in regards to content, but only when concerning extras or minor characters. But the second the plot finally requires them to pull the plug on a 'face' of the show, they suddenly lose their composure, and beat around the bush.

It's when the practical/business side of the production rears its ugly head and shows through blatantly.

Well, given how season seven premieres today, I have to raise the question: who do you think it is?

That being said, I don't think I'll be tuning in. I'm sticking to my guns because of that crap they pulled in Season 6's finale.

As for skipping out on watching, the last half of season six was a train wreck so I don't blame you. I'm sure you'll hear if it's actually a good episode.

I don't mean to toot my own horn, but, uh... yeah. Basically everything I said back in April (about them being cagey as hell about who was killed, then trying to preserve drama by dragging around the bush, etc.) has come true in one way or another.
 

It comes to another level when the disappointments can be predicted almost as accurately as the shocks.

Apparently, People in the Walking Dead can't use the F-Word.

 

I guess the creators were like "Oh sure, we can have a show with extremely violent deaths, sexual content, and graphic and scary scenes, but we've gotta draw the line somewhere!"

That's the F-bomb man. A weapon of mass destruction. You can't deploy that without having a damn good reason to.

 

(at least, according to this world of PG-13 media we live in)
