    mid season premiere was a bit of letdown considering how amazing this season has been... alot of yelling for no reason, alot of created drama that will go nowhere because they're effing around with pretty clear cut plot lines...

    and crazy rick............ ugh... that was horrible

    I didn't mind it actually. Then again I didn't watch any of the marathon they had going. So, it wasn't fresh in my head.

    the BIGGEST problem i had was the ending...

    without spoiling it for anyone...

    there was no build up to the cliff hanger.... it was like BAM! all of the sudden that happens.. cut to credits..

    i sat there bewildered for a a few minutes thinking "oh my god... the walking dead guys have no idea how to write horror... they only know how to do zombie makeup"

    there should have been a slow burn build up to that... hints throughout the episode... red herrings.. there's a certain way you incorporate THAT into a story... and it's not the same as a jump scare..

    If you're referring to lori...It freaked me out.

    Tonights episode was good. Though, the merle and daryll on their own story line could have lasted a nother episode. It seemed kind of rushed, the whole thing. But, I guess it's to show how ruthless and reckless the Governor is.

    Also, Heinz. Don't worry about spoiling it. It says spoiler alert int the thread title in capitals. If people that are not up to date are actually stupid enough to check the latest pots and even go as far as to get angry at you for "spoling" it. Tell them to GTFO!

    I got back into this show the past couple of months. Catching up through the awful, awful first half of season 2 was a slog and required much fast-forwarding. But, the end of that season and the first part of this year have been entertaining.

    Last night reminded me why I stopped watching this show after episode 3 in year one. Too slow pacing (ruined the entire "Andrea returns" sequence), scenes that go on way too long (the final scene with Andrea and the Gov that loses all its tension), inexplicable subplots that lead nowhere or go in circles (so, Rick's fine again? Merle is back and Andrea is out? What?), pointless, silly filler (Merle is a biblical scholar now?) and dramatic scenes that make you laugh out loud (the Andrea/Afro Samurai "confrontation").

    When's the next video game come out?

    i found with season 2, watching week to week was KILLING ME for the first half... so much so that i gave up on the show, until the season was over... and i had the option of watching enough of each episode to see they didnt find the little girl yet, and skipped to the next episode... right up til they found her... then i watched every episode completely... and didn't lose a single step...

    that first half of season 2... didnt even need to happen.. i didnt feel like i lost out on any plot development at all by skipping ahead... the only thing that changed was chinese dude hooked up with farmers daughter...

    According to andrew Lincoln 27 people will die in tonight's episode. I imagine most will be Woodbury extras but you gotta expect a few major deaths.

    Just as soon as Carl becomes badass, he becomes the most hated character again...

    It was underwhelming.

    I like the fact that Andrea is gone. She was such an unlikable character in the show and was pretty much one of the stupidest characters on TV.

    The prison fight was confusing. When they fled and got out of the trucks there seemed to be a lot fewer people than went in but, but, but..... Glenn and Maggie didn't appear to shoot anyone. In fact, it looked like they were missing on purpose. Now, some of them may have been got by the tomb zombies but it didn't explain the whole "massacre" panic or the missing people. Can anyone explain exactly what happened there? Not sure if it was bad editing or just slippery writing.

    It will be interesting to see what the new showrunner/writer does next year. The show has become very religious in many of its themes, particularly in the matter of sin and redemption. Merle's sacrifice redeemed him but he had to die. Shane died badly cause he refused to repent (despite Rick giving him every chance), Andrea died for her betrayals, etc, Lori dies for her sins (Shane) but is redeemed by sacrificing herself for her child, the Woodbury residents suffer for their embrace of evil.

    Finally watched the finale this morning. Thank the lord they killed of Andrea, she was absolutely useless to either side and she made the stupidest of decisions sometimes. How she got bitten made me laugh though. She got out just in time to escape, and yet she still got bitten. On the neck too. Granted she got out literally two seconds before Milton got her, but she could've at least kicked him or something...buy a couple seconds of time.

    As for Carl, I just think he's a little bitch now IMO. His dad's power in the group has gotten to his head...I mean shooting a guy in the forest for no reason? Suppose Carl is right and he goes running back to Woodsbury, but what can the Governor do about it? By the time the kid gets back there, Carl and Herschel will have made their way back to the prison. Can't believe his 5-year-old logic worked on Rick lol.

    Idk. I found it really underwhelming as well. People say "oh you should appreciate the show for the deeper meaning, and not worry about pointless deaths" when in fact, the whole show is just based around the death of members and how the group will cope without them.

    The show is based on the struggle of trying to regain humanity. That's what Rick is trying to do.
