Is it just me or does this season feel really long?

I'm guessing most of the problem with this season is that it's rather slow, kinda like season 5. I'm more okay with this season though since it's obviously building up to the War arc whereas season 5 was just kinda messing about in the woods.

 

Also, thanks to Talking Dead last night, we now know Trevor Philips would probably not survive in TWD's world.

Well The Walking Dead isn't meant to be about zombies in the first place. It's about mankind's psychological downfall after the apocalypse.

yeah I know.

but zombies were still a thing that the characters had to deal with.

 

the fact that the world is covered with zombies is the underlying premise for everything that happens. suddenly they don't seem to matter anymore. they're completely inconsequential to anything. it just kinda sucks. if you wanted to do a show about people walking around looking for food and periodically fighting with each other then you could've just rebooted LOST. earlier in the show, I thought one of the big plot points was supposed to be the mystery about why people began turning into zombies in the first place. but they've totally abandoned that part of the story. it would be a cool thing to explore but I've stopped holding my breath. we're never going to get an answer.

 

it's painfully boring now.

they spend way too much time on sh/t that doesn't matter. the group never seems to get anywhere or learn anything. the suspenseful entertainment of the first several seasons has been slowly replaced by tedious knuckle-dragging. the characters seem to be getting stupider as they get older.

Rosita pisses me off a little bit more every time I see her miserable f*cking face, she's behaving like a dumb c*nt.

 I'm thinking that the zombies simply degrading and falling apart after a  spell has a lot to do with their being relegated into the background. You'll notice how many are trapped in muddy ravines, etc, or even being eaten by wild animals... Mostly anyone living knows now how to kill them, so they really aren't the threat and horror that they once were. 

 

 Id like more flashbacks such as Lost had, giving us more a glimpse of peoples past lives, and what motivates them. I really didn't want to see people getting smoked practically weekly like on OZ or Game of Thrones..

I for one would welcome someone getting killed off every week, but that's just me lol. The show has too many characters and a lot of them just aren't interesting.

Maybe not every week. It would feel like it'd be trying too hard to shock the audience. No point in getting attached to any character or their arc if they will immediately die.

This season has been painfully slow. There are way too many episodes focusing on characters I either don't give a sh*t about or hate. I was hoping that the Oceanside episode with Tara early on this season was just going to be one rotten apple that WOULDN'T spoil the bunch, but then we get sh*t like that Sasha and Rosita episode last week. Rosita is f*cking horrible, she has the most insufferable personality and I can't help but want to see her die.

 

I finally finished reading The Walking Dead Compendium Volume Three and now I'm ahead of the show by a fair margin. What strikes me as odd is that the whole scene in Sasha's cell where the guy was about to rape her is from the All Out War arc and not March to War which is where the show is right now. Judging by next week's promo and what I know from the comics, we'll be leaving the season on a relatively high note thankfully.

I wouldn't hold your breath. The comic is obviously the source material, but it's on its own. I have a funny feeling, like most of the show, sh*t is going to be way different in the show with all out war...

This season just took so long to get here. It should've took half a season to get to All Out War. But they dragged on and on. They need to cut each season of this show down to 10 episodes. Ten really good tight episodes.

Yeah, he's like Trevor if Trevor had mental stability. Dunno if that'd make him more or less dangerous though.

Finale was okay, way too much Sasha for me though. I'm sure after that episode she has plenty more fans but I always found her facial twitching and general bad acting so annoying.

 

Next seasons is really going to have to hit the ground running to make up for how slow this season was, I understand you have to develop character arcs but you could of probably fitted six of the fifteen episodes in to one.

I kind of feel the opposite here. They should have built this up with more time devoted to each side's stories. It felt to me like they rushed it all and it was kind of a clusterf*ck, some episodes would have been better as double episodes, I reckon. 

 

For me, this season was actually a pretty strong one, I think I'm in a very small minority here though.

I think I read somewhere of a rumor that Season 8 may have a timeskip, probably the premiere, since the comics had one.

 

Makes sense I guess, it'd be pretty narmy to have the legendary Negan die after one month of meeting the group.

I started recently myself and I'm on season 3.  It's not very well written and is pretty boring for the most part but yet I keep watching.  I guess I'm just waiting for it to get better?  None of the characters have captured me and when/if they die off I have not & will not be affected.  I've been a big fan of Zombie things since the 1980's so it's not like it's just not a genre I don't care for and trying to get into.  My rating of it so far is "okay but nothing special".   :yawn:
