fear the walking dead has been surprisingly decent so far. I really dont get the fascination with Morgan... his character has already went full circle and seems to be recycling through the same process again but even so I still enjoyed the first 3 episodes and am more interested in seeing with what happens with Fear's current story arch than watching Rick bicker with Maggie next season.
SPOILERS
killing off Nick was a big head scrather (if he really died)... him and Strand were by far the most interesting characters the show had going

Nick is gone. He wanted to go back to movies. As for the character, he'll be around in the flashbacks to the baseball stadium through the mid-season finale.

I agree, Fear is good. I thought last year was great, and this season doesn't seem to have missed a beat. I'm a bit curious as to where Madison is in the future when they come across Morgan and that group.

Big surprise move by the showrunners of FTWD. That half season of time jumps was so confusing. Glad it's over.

Hoping they can break this endless rut both WD shows have fallen into of finding sanctuary at the beginning of the season and getting chased out at the end following a big firefight and then repeating the following season in a new location.

Man, not sure if there is anything left of this walking dead. Feels like they're trying to squeeze another season. 1st episode was so so. Better get better soon

The showrunners must know the show is on life support. That's why they keep pointing out these are Rick's final episodes.

It's no secret the show has gone down in recent years. This episode was at least a little better (imo) than anything I recall ever happening during last season. I'm sure a majority of the people watching now are like me where they've been watching from the beginning and just feel too invested in it to not see it all the way to the end.

I did that with LOST and felt cheated by how that show wrapped, but by the same token, I'd be too bothered/curious to stop watching without knowing how it all "ends".

i feel like i'm hate watching TWD. thought the episode started good was intense spider zombie freaked me out...then the gregory villainy and treachery kinda was lame. just not very engaging overall. despite the endings of Lost and Sopranos i don't hold that too much against them. i think the wire which i just finished rewatching and the shield had far better endings for their stories. but i honestly think TWD was at it's best in it's first short season and pretty good until Shane died. i think i heard the next two episodes critics said they were good, hoping it picks up.

Walking Dead needed to keep killing main characters. Some of them have just been there for too long. Tara's character should not have lasted 5 seasons. Sasha's death was way overdue and they deemed it worthy for a "finale" death, which sucked. Morgan should have died already. Gregory should have died much earlier. I wouldn't care if they killed Michonne either because her character got pretty stale. TBH I haven't liked the show as much since they arrived at Alexandria. There are some good episodes every now and then, however.

I kinda liked the premiere, but they did not have to drag that to 1 hour and 30 min. Why spend so much time on that Ken kid? We didn't even know him. They should have just cut that entire funeral scene. Had no purpose.

On the positive side, the Rick and Maggie talk was good. So was the Daryl and Carol talk.

If anyone is still following this, it was Rick's final episode tonight.

It was overall a good sendoff, but there were some problems with it.

SPOILER:


Quote:
It turns out that Rick survives and is whisked away on a chopper. Apparently, he's gonna go somewhere safe, away from all the madness.

But how could Rick just leave his friends and family? Surely, he has to return at some point. He's not just gonna forget about them. Even if he is sent across the ocean, I'm sure Rick would at least make an attempt to return to Alexandria, even at the cost of his life. If he never returns, should we assume that he died trying to get back?

I loved the Shane and Herschel (RIP) appearances. I didn't care for Sasha (I never liked her character). They couldn't have gotten Lori's actor to appear? That would have been more fitting. I would take Carl, Glenn, or even Andrea before Sasha.

But the flashbacks and callbacks to the earlier seasons were nice. The preview for the next Walking Dead actually looks pretty good IMO. If they could make Judith badass just like Carl in the comics, it would be very interesting.

yes it was a great ride and intense and utterly ruined for me at the end by the deux ex helicopter. for me the show probably died with rick on the bridge. he signed up for 3 walking dead movies with AMC. they will milk this cash cow and ride this horse to death. i wonder what frank darabont's twd would have looked like if had had the opp. to continue. i also liked Shane and herschels flashbacks and thought the dead bodies pileup was cool, but iono kinda drifted out during her speech. shows like TWD and House of Cards had the potential to be all time greats but when they try to dilute it and extend it for no reason it ruins the whole for me. my favorite TWD season is still by far 1. the judith scene was whateverz AV club absolutely trashed the episode. i won't be that harsh i was pretty engaged until after the blow up where every second from there on (the chopper, the music, judith, the previews for the future, trash lady (forget her name) iono took away the moment for me. darryls face though (bleep) that's when i was still engaged lol

Good episode but they should have made Judith a bit older. If they could have modeled "Kick Asses" Hit Girl that would have been perfect. It was a little comical watching her get perfect headshots but could barely holster the weapon.

The creators are struggling big time to build up a new direction of the show after the whole Negan war. Even Ricks so called farewell episode was a huge disappointment with such a contrived hero "death".
I think they would have been better off giving the Negan war a more epic series finale treatment and replacing with an entirely new zombie apocalypse series or perhaps go with a mini series where each season is a brand new story line.
