Walking Dead

“The Obliged”
#TWD A lot of people gave up on the Walking Dead in season 2 because it was boring, I thought they did a good job with what little they had to work with and made a week into a season. It wasn’t great but I felt the heart strings when Sophia came out of the barn… This week’s episode managed to do every filler technique from season 2 but even more pointless and even less happens.
Maggie goes on a road trip, Rick and Daryl fall into a hole, Negan is on suicide watch, and there’s trouble on the farm. Is this season 2?
I guess we’re supposed to ask if Negan should live or die…but we did that at the end of last season. We’re supposed to see all this time has gone by and progress been made except for all these conversations from before? I’m still wondering how everyone seems to know Rick is going away. It isn’t like Carl who knew he was bit and made his own memoriam episode. Weren’t there Whispers promised this season?
And it isn’t just me hating on a show I once loved. Walking Dead is now tied for most disappointing from their fans right now. I’m not sure there’s much that can fix it with everything already been filmed. But I don’t think budgeting is an excuse this time and I don’t think we’ll forgive this season.  #WalkingDead #AMC #RedsTake #5280Geek

“Warning Signs”
Walking dead’s Warning Signs is apt. There’s no mistaking Rick Grimes is in his final episodes; he doesn’t want to be around these characters anymore either. He had his weird Brady Bunch day with Michone and Judith, he started talking to Daryl like he was young Carl, and he convinced Carol that his stupid idea about utopia is correct. Did anyone else notice that line of “every life matters” was way close to Morgan’s “life is precious” line? But Morgan got sick of these character’s back and forth developments and left to go play with other zombie characters, so now Rick gets full credit. Or something equally silly. Morgan seemed to know that these characters were played out, wish I could join him in apocalypse Texas. Maggie and Daryl have become the monsters they fought back in season four. Even I don’t like the Saviors or think they’re worthy of forgiveness. But turning a blind eye to a beaten people being snatched in the middle of the night to be killed, this is some Gestapo creepy shit. In fact there are a lot of parallels between this new world and Europe after World War I. Which just shows how much these characters haven’t learned a damn thing. This might as well be a new show with all new people and the same plot issues. Rick is on his way out and that’s the real warning sign! #TWD #AMC #WalkingDead#RedsTake #5280Geek
