Discussing the show and past episodes is fine. Do not put things that have happened in the TV series in spoilers. However, don't spoil things from the books that may happen in future episodes. Put book spoilers in spoiler tags with a CLEAR WARNING that it is from the book.
RIP SHIVA your life was as long as the SFX budget would allow.
I feel the show transitioning into hate watching for myself, gotta have something to do in between Mr. Robot episodes though.
Overall the last few seasons were better than I expected to be honest. I heard a lot of bad things but I don’t think it was that awful. Mostly has some weird writing and direction issues like they don’t know what they want to be.
As for this season..
I don’t know how you could make an “all-out-war” more boring.
This new season somehow makes gunfights extremely boring. And there’s a lot of them. It’s kind of painful. I should have timed the last episode. Felt like a solid 8-10 minutes of just needless automatic weapons unloading in to idle cars. A zombie apocalypse creates scarcity for supplies so you’d think weapons would be more important or something. We get standoffs between main characters are literal nobodies, it has the dramatic tension of a three year old playing with lego. And there’s a lot of standoffs: in hallways, in corridors, in empty yards filled with abandoned cars, in front of the survivor’s hideout, etc, etc. It’s a lot.
Every main character seems to swing wildly between being extremely passive or extremely 80’s-style-action-hero. It’s hard to keep up with anyone’s motivations because they seem to just change on a whim.
It's the equivalent of a bad B movie now so might as well just laugh at the dumb stuff and go along for the ride. Basically Lost with zombies.
"Our only job is to kill Negan. He is the only one who has to die!. That's why we're going to talk to him for like 15minutes"
oh and I thought he got hurt but he seems completely fine now. Guess that container with Gabriel had some medkits in it.
