    Yup I agree, He should have been dead last season, he was just a dead man walking waiting for Lucille....

    Cheers

    That was an intense episode, I didn't need that much intensity in my life at midnight.

    I can see that I am going to have to watch The Walking Dead on Sunday when it airs. There are way too many references to it on the Yahoo feed and I am having a hard time avoiding spoilers.

    Don't know if there are any on this thread, I scrolled to the bottom right away.

    Very intense and sad.

    If the rest of the season is like this, I may have to stop watching. I am all good with drama, suspense type stuff, but that was rough to sit through, and the after effects are going to be brutal.

    I'm out for now, a little too brutal to be enjoyable at the moment.

    I hear ya....and I am tired of entertainment falling back on gore, shock, and violence in the absence of a compelling storing and quality acting. Sadly, Quentin Terantinos later films and this show have taken that direction.

    I wasn't expecting it to be that graphic. The "impact" seemed to be different when it was person to person violence rather than how main characters were taken out of the show previously by the walking dead.

    The Talking Dead show afterwards was also bizarre with the cast sitting out in the pouring rain with umbrellas. Also looked like some of them were half crocked or in Halloween outfits. The producer said the next episode is supposed to be light hearted and introduce a lot of new characters.

    When I say brutal I don't mean on me, but the rest of characters. Meaning the rest of the season is probably going to be melancholy.

    I understand they needed to shake the characters to their bones! I am hoping the next few episodes are more positive. That was just plain evil and dark and I don't want to sit through an entire season like that.

    My take on it is...

    Think back to Season 1 and what our characters were like. As much as we think this is just about zombies VS humans, the story line shows what this apocalypse does to ordinary people over time. It's really been a battle of human vs human to take whats left and survive while trying to avoid the zombies. Glenn was a pizza delivery guy. Carol was an abused housewife afraid of her own shadow. Rick the cop. Maggie the sweet innocent farm girl. Carol is like Rambo now! The more battles with other humans, the more loss of friends, the more it hardens them all making them lose their humanity. Negan is no doubt the epitome of this! I'm sure we'll learn some of his back story.

    As disturbing as it was, I enjoyed the heck out of it.
    No excuses!

    Whoa.....
    I was hoping Coral was gonna lose his arm! Blast!

    This should be interesting. Clearly they went over the top due to all the hype from the season 6 finale.

    How is this gore any different from the zombie dismemberment that has taken place for the last 6 seasons? Zombie lives matter too!

    Well I was right but I wasn't expecting them to kill off two characters, at least Abraham when out like a Man what did he say suck my [email protected] All Glen could do was mumble sh/t probably something like I will keep an eye out for ya whoo hoo that was a brutal start to the season.
  • Jimbo18Jimbo18 Posts: 2,158
    They just might have lost me with that episode. I know it was about shock value, but I didn't care for Negan, as a character. Too over the top or something. If he's going to be the main focus all season, I think I am out of here.

    And, having said that, I am a fan or Jeffery Dean Morgan, just not so much here.

    Strong Bad, the theme reminds me of an Eric Church song that I like very much. It seems to fit more with the behavior of Rick Grimes regarding his kids.

    The song is the "Dark Side". We all have a dark side but don't we don't know what is the actual trigger. Some of our dark sides are worse than others. I had never thought about this corner of my mind.

    Over there in the shadows, hangin' out in the corner of my mind / Stringing up the gallows, waiting for me to cross that line / That man's dangerous as hell, a threat to himself,........

    That was deep.....................and no, that is NOT what she said.

    With all you people walking out because of brutality in a show that has been slaughtering people for 7 seasons, last night's episode might have done it for me with the completely ridiculous setting/characters. Never read the comics, but seriously.........

    I'm not giving up quite yet but I agree completely. Kingdom? King? Tiger? "Oh, come on!" works perfectly.

    Still watching, but disappointment seems the norm now. This entire season makes Fear the Walking Dead look good, which is quite a feat, considering how incredibly bad that show is.
    Carol and Daryl was the only high point.

    I remember back when everybody was all set for a Carol/Daryl romance, I'm not seeing it happening if it hasn't happened by now.
  • RicardoRicardo Posts: 10,509
    This is one of my top shows, but last season was really disappointing. Hope they make something good this season. I guess all shows start a downward spiral after a few years.
