It was bad really bad. Surely someone recognized this and would fix it.



But alas, no. This has to be the single worst episode of any walking dead ever made. They say that in story telling you should show, not tell. Well this was an entire episode of them telling, not showing. Except for the one part they did show, where it was supposed to be tense, except since they are all telling it you know everything turned out fine. The one saving grace was watching the walkers get blown sky high and raining down on Morgan in bite sized pieces.



I'm now locked in a mortal struggle between not quitting, or AMC canceling this thing. I must know what will come first. But AMC is really holding on here, it's getting tough! I have no idea how anyone involved in this project can watch it, read the reactions and think "Ya, this works!" It does not work. But don't take my word for it, Reddit hates it too....

You do deserve a merit badge for sticking with this trainwreck. I bailed on it quite a long while ago and just saw this thread was still alive so figured I would check to see if I was missing out. Apparently not.

I don't know why I do the things I do. Mostly as a warning to others, I think.

Here is a peak of the minefield walkers. The only worthwhile scene.


I'll try to post any of the good stuff. Don't hold your breath, there are not many.

Al or Luciana? They are filming everything like it is "important". Stories matter! Its one of the most infuriating things. It makes zero sense, it's pointless, and it will get people killed. Most of the episode was done as a kind of recruitment video that explained what happened between the end of the last half of the season and this new half, which was really annoying becuase when they ended last eason, it sounded like a good story they were going to have going forward. Gave me a morsel of hope after the radioactive walkers, kids, and DIY airplane of the first half. But no. We don't deserve to actually see that, so we just get told about it on video, like they are the film crew for The Office.


Then they leave a tape and vcr/tv, and I guess a generator in places so people can watch the video. And then? I dunno, ask them for help, I guess. There is no logic to this at all.

Well to be fair, last year really was a good season. They brought in a new show runner and new writers. The premises and plot lines were better than Walking, imo.


Unfortunately, they really s*it the bed this year. Which is a shame cause they really could have expanded this show and failed.

I was beginning to think it was just me (and Fuzz). I [seem to] recall enjoying season 4, thought i was a fresh departure. But this season? My god its bad

I was going to bail after the first eight eps, but i'd be lying if I claimed denied part of me weren't curious how bad the ninth episode is (sounds familiar, probably how I'm still around after 10 seasons of TWD...)
