NFT: The Walking Dead/Fear The Walking Dead- Spoilers

GMAN4LIFE : 4/16/2018 9:10 am
this season finale served as a series finale for me.

they lost me completely.. Mind you this past season, i was only watching some recaps or reading it. But this now furthers it to not watch at all.

Im sorry but making maggie a villian now?? come on. I can predict this already. The 1st half of the season will be maggie trying to one up rick and then the 1st half finale will be maggie dying by the whisperers. (since she is leaving the show)

the writing is horrible. Holy shit was it bad.

As for Fear, It was nice to see that Morgan joined the group after the events from the War. So its the same timeline.
I hate watch WD...

just to see how bad it can get. It never fails to surprise me to see the levels of suckitude they can reach.
yeah.....

i was less than impressed with the finale. I didn't think it necessarily good or bad. My reaction was that you dragged out an entire painful season over this?

I've always thought the writers and directors were arrogant and more concerned about impressing themselves than producing something viewers enjoy. I am hard pressed to remember a single episode this season that stood out for being outstanding.
I'm almost done with the show myself

I can't stand the Rick character, how many times will these lazy writers have Rick run out of bullets to lead to a fist fight with Negan???

You'd figure the character leading up to a big show down with Negan, would you know, carry an extra gun or extra bullets? Once I saw he was out of bullets yet again, I told my wife, that I'm done with this show. I'll watch if she wants to continue but it's not on my list of show that I want to regularly follow anymore.
Best part of the finale  
UConn4523 : 4/16/2018 9:36 am : link
was Rick running towards the tree knowing Negan was behind it, and instead of attempting to engage from the side, instead goes right at the tree and letís himself get blindsided.

The writers havenít given a fuck for years.
Nice to see some of you finally waking up from the Walking Dead matrix

There is just nothing compelling about this show at all  
Mike from Ohio : 4/16/2018 9:49 am : link
and hasn't been for years. Like Chris, I hate watch it. It's a train wreck I can't seem to look away from.

So the threat next season is Maggie and Darryl? They want to kill Negan so bad they will start a war with their own people? How did the peace and love Jesus suddenly become a guy who wants to start a war with people for showing mercy?

Do they still pay the people who write this? They really shouldn't.
Not only Maggie being a bad guy  
Jay on the Island : 4/16/2018 9:53 am : link
But Jesus and Daryl are on her side? Jesus the guy who is all about saving people now is going to ally with Maggie to start yet another war with his friends?
again, this furthers my point... the writing is such  
GMAN4LIFE : 4/16/2018 9:55 am : link
shit.

good god
Man, You guys must have time to kill  
AnnapolisMike : 4/16/2018 10:15 am : link
I have not been able to stomach that show for two years. I'll take the 10 minutes every now and then and read about how much it sucks now. Disappointing as when the show started...and the first few seasons...it was really great TV.
as i said in a previous thread  
UESBLUE : 4/16/2018 10:47 am : link
watching it has become a duty/mercy fuck. I was praying this was the show's finale. Only redeeming quality now is the opening theme and credits that remind me of how good it was in the beginning.
Maggie moves around pretty well

My wife keeps yelling at the TV asking where the hell her baby bump is.
I am very disappointed  
SJGiant : 4/16/2018 11:22 am : link
With the story line. The internal conflicts slated for next season makes no sense. I never read the comics but they do refer to the comics with Nagen staying alive. Karl should have been the one that lived and Rick should be off the show.
It is amazing how many people watch a show they hate...this is like  
fredgbrown : 4/16/2018 11:56 am : link
the new game threads. Some logon and post when the Giants play bad..They can't wait to post when Eli throws an int or OBJ drops a ball..I don't watch shows that I think the story stinks...the characters stink...the writing stinks..but that is just me...
I watched every episode of TWC  
Rob in Rockaway : 4/16/2018 12:00 pm : link
up until the season opener this year. That's where I tapped out. Moved onto Homeland and that was a great decision.

Homeland sucks too now, but like TWD I still watch. These 7/8 season long shows are all terrible when they get to this point. Awful plot points are inserted to move along woh the same characters that they canít get rid of or recast because it will hurt viewership. Rinse, repeat.
very unimpressive finale for TWD  
RasputinPrime : 4/16/2018 12:23 pm : link
and an intriguing premiere for FWD. Either way, they are going to need to do something spectacular during this season of FWD or they will bleed out.
The Negan arc was poorly done  
weeg in the bronx : 4/16/2018 12:37 pm : link
Started out great and then just dragged on for too long. Plots were implausible, which says alot for a show about Zombies. And thats the conclusion? Negan, who crushed the skulls of loved ones, raped women, mutilated his own people, terrorized multiple communities, he doesn't die a horrible death?

the whole season had too many plot lines, with to many characters that were irrelevant getting too much story time, all while dragging things out far too long in a meandering story.

It had a nice run, I don't see it lasting much beyond next year.

LOL, I yelled at my wife about that exact same thing!
Maggie is not all of a sudden a villan  
Kevin(formerly Tiki4Six) : 4/16/2018 1:15 pm : link
She has been turning dark all season long. Negan bashed her husbands skull in , of course she wanted him dead and is furious with Rick. Daryl wants him dead because hes at fault for Glennís death by Negan. I donít get why Jesus is going along with this, we may find out thatís not the case next season .

Season really sucked though , so predictable.

They decided to follow the comics on this which, having read them, isn't the way I would have gone. The comics have been a drag for about 4 years now. I wouldn't expect anything better from TWD/FWD unless they are committed to a soft-reboot.
My prediction for next season

You'll all be watching.
Couple of questions  
idiotsavant : 4/17/2018 7:05 am : link
If a bear or, let's say, a ferile zoo lion, eats a walker, does it turn? I think not.

And can those bitches swim? I think not again. Do they breath? Maybe not, but wouldn't a strong current just wash them away?

Correct.

Walker physics has always been a bit wonky. You can stop their heads into mush with relative ease, but they are apparently strong enough to disembowel a live human with their bare hands.
Sooner or later the ratio of bears, wolves, dogs  
idiotsavant : 4/17/2018 8:45 pm : link
Mountain lions and ferile zoo escapees outweighs the number of zombies and they eat them.
