Same. I've been a loyal watcher since the very first episode four or so years ago.
I don't know if I'm just more cynical and less patient for BS as I get older, but goddamn, my tolerance for absurdity has become low.
This episode was just pure garbage. Instead of switching back and forth with the flashbacks, they should have just presented a linear storyline. But I get it. They needed to start the show with a bang by showing all the walkers. Unfortunately that didn't work out too well for them and ended up ruining the entire episode.
