What is sad is knowing that for each good episode The Walking Dead gives us, it then yields 10 boring and cringe ones. So now I'm getting ready for those.

The Walking Dead has some competition now that Fear The Walking Dead is in a good streak after Season 2 Episode 8.

Fear The Walking Dead is just funny. That drug addict is like a young Kramer.

You find it funny? :P I find it cringe-worthy, melodramatic and a sad case of missed opportunities most of the time, like The Walking Dead.

But the last episodes of the second season were pretty solid by forcing characters to go separate ways, not going on errands like in The Walking Dead but really separating them.

TWD is actually well written. FTWD is just silly. I dont like a single character in it.



I'm a season behind so I never saw this episode but I did watch 'the spoiler clip' of it.....(I'm not one of those people that care about spoilers etc..)

That was so disturbing I dont even know if I can continue watching the show again which I had planned to since the last season is now on Netflix.... *shrug O_O

I don't consider TWD particularily well written, neither FTWD. People in charge of make up and good actors keep the series afloat, even with the cringe dialogue that they are given most of the time.

TWD characters are more relatable sure, but the last episodes of the second season of FTWD picture a show capable of having a string of episodes of good quality without dropping it, thing TWD hasn't been able to do.

I admit though, FTWD hasn't made a good episode as good as one of the best TWD episodes.

It is sort of weird how that scene is completely overlooked. It had me literally shaking, which is something this show had never done before. The fact that Rick was absolutely going to cut off his own son's hand for the man who just killed two of his closest friends actually did a better job driving home just how hopeless their situation is than the deaths themselves did.

I thought i was done with the show after that pathetic cliffhanger last season, but maybe I'll stick around for just a bit longer... Maybe....

I dont really think the cliffhanger itself was bad, it was the waiting 6 months to find out is what most people hated about it. If it ended like that in the second to last episode, I think people would like the cliffhanger more since they would only have to wait a week.

I kind of agree with you. It wasn't the cliffhanger itself that was terrible, but rather everythong surrounding it. The entire season 6 was a huge letdown, with several episodes that felt like they were just wasting time. They split the midseason finale in half much like they did with the season finale, except there the pacing was atrocious and there was no payoff, then they spent the next half season building up to the big Negan reveal -- the one thing that would almost justify all the dicking around the writers had been doing for thw whole season, aaannd they cut it short. It was a huge slap in the face, and i did not see it coming.

Did anyone see the new episode of The Walking Dead?

I rarely make threads about TV shows, but this has to be the most disturbing thing Ive seen in a long time. I never thought they would go as far as they did with this episode. 

I was always a fan of TWD, but this episode just made me care for the characters more than I ever have. It really goes to show how much better TV shows have gotten over the past ten years. They have far surpassed movies imo.

Just want to see what other people thought of it.

Let me just get this off my chest that no one truly knew who was going to die, and anyone who guessed correctly did so really not knowing why.  With that said even if we knew intellectually that Abraham and Glenn were getting it, emotionally it was still a shock when we saw it happened.  Or course we don't want to see anyone die, but it wasn't too much of a shock when Abraham was hit yet it was still gut wrenching.  And to be honest, I was fooled from that point, thinking he was the only one.  But I still wouldn't say that I was shocked when Glenn got it, but it was really horrific and sad to see him go.

I've had the privlidge to meet Steven Yeun at Comic Con 2014.  The first words I said to him was, "So when are they going to kill off your character?"  He joking said, "Hopefully never."  Here's a shot he took of us that I'd posted on these forums before:

If he's in New Orleans next year, I plan to see him.
