I never felt worse for the death of a CGI character.

Yeah the suspension of disbelief one has to undergo with this series gets more and more ridiculous. Darryl wipes out at top speed and doesn't have a scratch? Rick jumps from one speeding vehicle to another and then survives the wreck? Carol apparently has a bullet proof force field around her at all times?

Shiva dying was worse than Dani losing one of her dragons.

Can tell. No real fan of GoT spells it "Dani".

They really need to kill of Negan...just a horrible cartoonish villain that's impossible to take seriously. Just because something worked in a comic doesn't mean it will work in a live action adaption. This character clearly does not. The Governor was far more complex and interesting villain.

How is this shit still going
I saw the trailer for season 9 and am quite glad I decided to quit watching it ages ago. Looks like they're still on the same boring story line the last 4 seasons..


Z nation has continued to change courses with tons of new takes on the virus and progresses well. Even fear the walking dead had a mini reboot with a cast change and they managed to get the story moving along..

Humans have killed big cats by hand. A 70 year old African ripped a leopards tongue out and killed it when it attacked him and his grandson. He was ****ed up but it happened. The reason people canít generally kill wild animals is the fear and pain. 15 no fear no pain killing humans down to die could kill a tiger.

How would a tiger even kill a zombie? Itís not gonna know to bite the head. I believe jaguars do that but no other big cats.

A tiger could tear a zombies guts out and itís still biting it while a human would be in shock and dying.

Thatís the zombie edge. No pain and no fear.

That shit was a total cop out. He can come back whenever heís ready. I bet he goes to be with his kids a few years then just comes back and they make it a major event like it wasnít clear a mile away.

Yeah that pretty much sucked. Now we're gonna get an episode of everyone grieving. Plus we still don't know jack about helicopter dude or what Jadis is up to.

btw, the opening shot is supposed to be Atlanta but on closer look it's actually Charlotte. Strange.

OTOH zombies are decayed and weak and lack co-ordination. You put your money on the tiger all day to destroy or elude them.

Well it was already revealed that Rick will get his own movie series. It was the end for him, but only on the show.

I guess the audience should have known he wasn't going to die. To have the spoiler out on commercials before airing is highly suspect.

We all should have known better really these guys were basically telling us that's it for RICK in commercials. Should have known it was something like that

Rick will be back in Walking Dead movies. He's off the show (for now). I guess movies will be easier for his schedule since he wanted to move back to the UK
