Dire. I'll give it one more episode to get better or I'm done with the whole thing.

 

You've had plenty of chances to get out before now. Face it, you're in until the bitter end, and it will be bitter.

Renewed for season 11. And Maggie will return.

 

Gimple was asked for anything about the Rick Grimes movie and he just said "Ninjas". So maybe there will be ninjas.

 

And they have a trailer for the new spin-off, but still no name

 

 

Blimey. That looks shite.

Haha, so true. I'm too optimistic.

It was on yesterday on Fox UK. You can watch it on catch-up on Sky at least. I don’t know about Virgin or whatever.

This is like televisual Stockholm Syndrome, I want to stop watching and get away from the captor but I cant.

 

I'm with this till the end of the line.

I totally agree. I promised myself I was out, but then went and tuned in again this week. Starting off with that school production of 300 though, was almost enough to have me reaching for the off button.

 

Like they really need to go through all that shit when the zombies move slower than a toddler with its feet tied together. So fucking stupid. And my hatred for Carol, Michonne and cowboy hatted girl (Rick must have had a funky sized head because that fucking hat fits everybody) grows more and more.

I’ve given up trying to apply common logic to some of the decisions and scenarios that they happen to find themselves in.

 

For example surely your number one priority would be to arm everyone with big bastard spears so you can shank the undead in the head from about four to five feet away, rather than using a 4” knife. 
 

Speaking of weapons Daryl appears to have found the god mode cheat code as he alway has crossbow darts. He shoots them in the head while running away and in the next scene bam, they are back.

 

Aargh this show is so frustrating, dunno why I still watch it.

 

(see you all here same time next week)

The fire zombie scene was quite well done, and I liked the scenes between Carol and Daryl. Although why am I only just realising, after nine seasons, that their names rhyme?

I’ve not watched it since the whispering zombies arrived .not because I don’t enjoy it still it’s ok I don’t love it anymore it’s more background telly  now for me.

 

i haven’t watched  because I’m positive Daryl’s dogs gonna get ripped apart . They can do what they like to the survivors I’ve not been fussed since they killed Beth . 

 

But I can’t watch the dog getting it 

 

does he and and can I tell when it’s coming so I can skip it ?

 

i want to watch it till the end I endured lost so this will be a piece of cake

Yeah it was pretty miserable  wasn't it? At least when episodes have EVERYONE in it you get really weird unintentionally funny moments. This was just dull.

lol nobody here even mentioned the last episode?

 

New episode is out. By the way, anyone know what the deal is with each episode LEAKING a day or so early every episode? It's bizarre.

 

Anyway, latest episode begins with a tree falling over. That's about the only bit of excitement/action of the entire episode. Negan is still the ONLY vaguely compelling character.

The early leaks are from AMC streaming the episode a few days before TV broadcast.

Anyone still bothering with this?

 

I'm up to date on sky but it's all just so...dull. I'm basically having it on in the background while doing other stuff, think I'm only watching it now because I always have.

Yeah I'm still in. I quite liked the most recent episode, mainly because it had lots of Negan. Also noticed the TV show is very close to where I was previously in the comics, I need to get caught up on the comics.

 

I'm starting to hate King Eziel as much as the priest character now.

I thought Episode 5 was pretty good, actually, though I'm less keen on the idea of Negan going back to being how he was after being afforded a lot more nuance in his recent characterisation. I like the idea of him having a moral compass deep down while still finding himself drawn to violence to solve problems. The scene where he described the plane taking off to the kid was a lovely moment, beautifully played by JDM. Daryl telling that Merle story was quite sweet, too.

Episode 7.

 

Spoiler

Not sure I saw that coming. Although all the clues have been there over the last few episodes, now that I look back.

I didn't know it would be Dante as he seemed to blend in as 'background character with a few lines no.23', but they dropped their classic clue that a character was going to die very soon by letting them smile once. As soon as Siddiq and Rosita were having their chat I knew one of them was toast

Third show has a name now. World Beyond. Looks like it's featuring Mystery Helicopter People.

Ever since Death Stranding came out I've not watched this for about 3 weeks, yet I now feel a urge to return :(

Read a couple of articles last week saying the first couple of episodes of this latest batch are the most amazing episodes ever.

 

Nope, it's still shit. Honestly, this happens before the start of EVERY Walking Dead series. Bunch of daft journalists get some early copies and are like 'OMG IT'S BACK ON FORM!'

 

AWFUL

It's a shame how this ended up. When it started I was doubtful how it could go on open ended ad infinitum and I don't think it has been able to do so effectively.

I also think the people making the programme are spending a lot of time reading social media commentary and feeding this back into it in a loop of self perpetuating drivel.

 

At first the assumption was that the walking dead were the zombies but then came the revelation that this term referred to the survivors. Perhaps in a final twist we the viewers are the REAL walking dead?

I thought this week's was pretty decent, actually - for once, we got an extended action set-piece that didn't just feel like a remix of one they've done several times before. It's all relative, obviously, but as someone who's stuck with TWD mostly out of habit, I found it gripping and even genuinely suspenseful in parts. I dare say I'm quite enjoying the fish-out-of-water stuff with Negan, too.

So a few days passed after watching the last episode and my GF was like "I think I'm done with the show. I can't watch anymore." and we continued to have a heartfelt discussion. I've tried quitting before but was sucked in again when something mildly interesting happened at the end of a season. I'm going to try giving this up again, I don't NEED this in my life. It's going to be a hard road and I don't know what the future holds, will I keep coming into this thread just out of curiosity? Will I get sucked in by a 'OMG!' article? I also feel a bit sad because I've desperately wanted Gabrielle to die for about 5 seasons and now I may be facing a sad future where I find out he dies on a news article or tweet, missing out on the glory watching him die in 'real-time'.

 

I hope you all have my back on this and understand, hope that with your support I can walk away from this show. I'll let you all know how it goes. 

 

I love you all.

I’ve considered the same again after watching this episode but I know the reality of the Stockholm Syndrome situation that I’m in.
