That's been my own experience at least.

That was hard to watch. Not sure if I can handle a whole season of this.

What an episode!

I will refrain from spoilers for those who haven't seen it, but now we know who Negan kills. As explained after the show, the real drama is in the aftermath of the kill, realizing how to regroup and deal with the loss of someone.

There are maybe two parts in the episode that feel fake/forced, but the POV of the episode through ricks eyes was interesting. Negan showed up and literally cut out ricks legs from underneath him.

Can't wait for next week when the other half of the bull is grabbed!

The first 20 minutes or so were irritating because I thought they would keep us in suspense until the end about who, and then potentially kill off an underwhelming character. I'm glad the episode picked up and did not chicken out (mostly). There was a brief chicken out scene late, but even then it was a good scene.

I have similar reservations. I recorded last night's episode and believe me, I am not in any rush to watch it.

You know what the shows problem is? There's no goal or real end game for it.


So it's kind of just spinning its wheels and every season seems to follow the same formula again and again.

Yep I told my girl something similar..the show feels like one big loop that repeats itself.

This show is basically full on torture/gore porn at this point...and that's fine I guess. It has never had great writing or deep characters, so they might as well just embrace the shock value aspect.

Is anything big ever gonna happen though? Like on a large scale? Feels like it's the same shit every season.

that was brutal for a first episode...they were better off ending it on the death last season and make the new season more about regrouping and revenge.....

and comon...with the directing...rick had plenty of times to ax negan...and bullshit his way out of it with the other men...

Well that's part of it kind of having no real end goal. There's no ending to this realistically being that they have a lot of content to draw on, plus anything they can dream up. Really this could go on for a long time.


However I'm of the opinion that they need to start considering when they're going to start driving the show toward some type of climatic big end. Because 7 seasons is a long time for a show like this to be running.

The Comics is far ahead than the TV Show. The only thing that I worry is Carl getting Older he's 17 now. In the Comics he's 14.
