    Good riddance. Maybe there's a slim chance the show will improve without him. Even with the ratings slide, it seems like a dumb move on his part. I don't see him having success elsewhere. I don't think Daryl, a sidekick who barely speaks, will work as a lead. On the bright side, maybe it'll mean fewer motivational speeches.

    I think those cards were people they were meant to rescue. Felix is the only human we know for sure is hip to Bernard being a host. He repaired him last season. I don't think anyone else knows.
  3. I'm gonna try to convert my wife, who loathes wrestling, by showing her the five-star classic that made me a fan when I was a kid: the Rumble 94 casket match.

    I'd probably still be watching if Ogg had been Negan.

    I hope Danai Gurira leaves. She's too good for this show. And I hope all this does lead to the show ending. Being forced to stop spinning their wheels and wrap it all up might actually improve the show. But I'm sure they'll just keep milking this thing dry. Maybe by season 15 it'll just be Rick left. No other survivors. No audience watching.

    Lowest rated midseason premiere in the history of the show. A lot of people have given up. Still the top cable show for the week. I wonder how low they have to go before they realize they have to rethink things. The fact that they've been hyping the show's first fully nude zombie as if that's going to make people tune in tells me they haven't learned anything from this. Purge the writing staff already!
  7. I love the name Macho Sasquatcho. I saw it pop up somewhere on a wrestling site in the late 90s and it stuck with me. Never looked him up till now. I did not expect a ratty Chewbacca Halloween costume, but it makes it even better than what I imagined.

    I'm not arguing that Rick is a better leader than Negan. Anyone living under Rick's command is probably better off going it alone, but I know the show will never kill him off. I just can't stand Negan. I hate how he's written and how Jeffrey Dean Morgan plays him. He's one-note. Being such an obnoxious clown seriously undercuts his villainy. He's more irritating than intimidating . Sure, he's an effective leader, but he's a real drag to watch.

    This season has inspired me to start reading recaps instead of actually watching. Good riddance to Carl. Awful character played by an awful actor. Now if they'd just kill off Negan and the writing staff, maybe I'd watch again.

    I don't think there was any hint of conflict within that system before. I understand Rick not wanting to kill everyone. There's nothing to be gained from offing the underlings who make Negan's pancakes or wash his clothes. Make use of them! Rick's clothes could certainly use a wash. That fight between Rick and Daryl resulting in the loss of a bunch of dynamite and that huge gun may be the dumbest thing that has ever happened on a show with a long history of dumb things happening.

    I liked the last one too. A definite improvement over the first three. Carol letting the Saviors get away with the gun so she could save Ezekiel and Jerry was a dumb choice. Is it worth putting so many people at risk to save two? And why the hell doesn't anyone ever get flat on the ground and shoot under a car when their enemy is taking cover behind one? Get low and shoot those two Saviors in the ass. Thankfully it all worked out in the end due to the incredibly fortunate timing of Rick and Daryl!

    We've been through this tedious debate about killing so many times before. If they're following the comic, they've known for a long time how this storyline would end. Why not set up a Rick change of heart sooner? Reminds me of previous seasons where an underdeveloped character would suddenly get a rush of development in the very same episode they would die. The writing is so shortsighted.

    Every time a villain is defeated, another pops up in its place. And so it'll likely go for years and years until this series limps its way to an overdue finale. Lather, rinse, repeat. I hope I can kick the bad habit of watching this show before then. What an incredible waste of ammo in this episode. Remember when it was a big deal that Eugene could make bullets because ammo was scarce? Now they've got so much, they can afford to blow a bunch of it on shooting out windows. It was colossally dumb of Simon and Negan to believe Gregory had that much sway over the Hilltop people and to rely on him as the ace up their sleeve. The Hilltoppers obviously bought into Rick's bullshit if they were willing to bring the fight to the Saviors. Any idiot can see that Gregory is not the sort of leader people would believe in. Weird Al's Another One Rides the Bus was certainly an odd choice for the flash forward music. With them also having a They Might Be Giants montage last season, it's like this show's music is being chosen by an eight-year-old me.

    As disturbing as that It scene is to those of us who aren't Stephen King, it is unusually sex-positive for the genre. I'd rather he just treat sex as a bad thing that should be punished than offer an alternative like that.

    Someone mentioned in the comments on an article about that It scene that even Peter Straub has said King is terrible at writing sex scenes. That seems to be the consensus. Instead of defending a mistake he made 30 years ago, he should just admit he fucked up and move on. Then everyone else can move on and maybe we won't get another dozen articles about that scene when the sequel comes out.
