I'm thankful we'll never have to endure Beth on Talking Dead again. A 29 year old, playing an 18 year old on tv, who sounds like a 13 year old when she speaks in real life.

Interesting character development for Rick, who I don't think would have previously shot the cop (at least not so quickly, or with so little remorse afterward).

Odd pacing this episode. A lot of "hurry up and wait" for the last 5-10 minutes, and then they don't include any footage of Carol waking up?

Dawn's character didn't seem consistent/believable to me. Not sure if it was the acting or the writing (or both). And the decision at the end to make a play for Noah made no sense. After the mid-season finale deaths of Herschel and the Governor last season, this felt like they were just compelled to come up with a reason to kill someone.

First three episodes of this season were some of the best ever. Last five, not so much. They need to do a better job of balancing the action and the character development - doesn't need to be all one or the other each episode.

I didn't think anyone was still watching.

 

This cop/ward/hospital arc was the worst they've done. It's like a bad cliched prison movie. The strawberry distraction was gold possibly topped by the fishing trip with the twins.

i thought this ep was real good.

rick's scene with the running cop was good and a contrast to the negotiated exchange of prisoners rather than the blood bath that came along with every other tribe thus far.

there are always opportunities to nit pick...

Can't help myself. Even with the frustrations, I still look forward to watching each week. And it helps hold me over until the next compendium is released.

I think the show could be a lot better (even with the dumb character decisions and sometimes questionable writing) if they'd work on the pacing. Need to get away from SEASON OPENING!!!!!....a few more episodes....MID SEASON FINALE!!!!!!!...lah de dah....END OF SEASON EXTRAVAGANZA!!!!!!!!! rinse and repeat

What? You didn't like Abe on his knees for a couple of hours, Maggie concerned that Eug would get sunburned, Glenn's face palming realization that if you run dirty water through a sock it removes the particulate matter, and the subtle symbolism of the nail in the foot of a priest?

 

How is Dawn in charge of anything?

Why aren't the guy cops getting all rapey on her and the other chick cop?

Why the hell would they keep a retired dude (and forgetful seamstress) around when they could have a ward full of slave chicks?

Actually, that hardest suspension of disbelief for me was Rick's "they're messing with the wrong people" (instead of "they're fucking with the wrong people") in the train car from the S4 finale. We went right into slitting people's throats into a trough in S5 Ep1; surely a single f-bomb over the course of 4+ seasons of zombie apocalypse wouldn't have been too far out of line.

edit - it also bothered me in yesterday's ep that after Sasha/Tyreese took out the walker from the rooftop (when Rick was initially negotiating the exchange), the two cops looked around and couldn't see them up there. If they can see the cops/zombies, the cops can see them. I'm sure they didn't take their sights off the cops the whole time, other than to take out that one walker.

Excellent recap of EP 7 up to 2:30 or so, then review.

Dude, that is hilarious.




Seriously though, this show is just boring now. Inertia keeps me checking in but it just falls flat in too many ways.

Sci Fi channel has a show Z-Nation that on right now. Its way lower budget and in a lot of ways not very good but at least it has a sense of humour and something sort of like character development. It also actually shows people making an effort in post Z world trying to patch together some sort of life in kind of interesting ways.

There is a character called 10k because he wants to kill 10,000 Z, which begs the question, if everyone just went full Zombie killer could a surviving population of 10% of the human race kill the other 90% in Z form and restore balance to the force?
