Did You Know?


First appearance of Benjamin, played by Logan Miller. This character doesn't appear until later in the comics. See more »


A tiger has managed to survive, despite the main plot point of the show being the scarcity of any type food. It certainly couldn't eat walkers either, because the series has made the point to deteriorate/decay them too much for such an animal to be able to consume. See more »


Carol Peletier: I would be speechless if I wasn't already speaking. I don't know what the hell's going on in the most wonderful way.

Getting so bad I can't look away.
2 November 2016 | by floppylobster-86-283328See all my reviews

Well I stuck around to see if it got any worse. It did.

It seems fans are now divided into two groups. The first group who feel it's all getting very over-the-top and too corny and the other group who say, "It was in the comics so it should be in the series". I'm very much in the first group.

Every medium has its strengths and weaknesses and what works in one does not always translate to the other. There's a reason Peter Jackson did not have the characters in Lord of the Rings suddenly break into song mid-conversation. What is happening right now on The Walking Dead requires some adaptation from the comics to make it look less cornball. Unfortunately the current showrunner is rather lazy and just films the comic as close to the original frames as he can, using none of the strengths of the television medium to his advantage. Some things just don't translate.

And so here we are, with an over-the-top cheeseball villain who talks to a baseball bat, and a corny theater actor with an oversized tiger. The main problem is the villains and characters are now so black & white and one-dimensional that's its no longer compelling in any sort of way except for a morbid curiosity to see how far they run this show into the dust. It's currently like watching a tabloid channel - there is cringe-worthy entertainment to be had, but nothing of substance.

But for now I'm hooked. Just to see how much further this series can slide into the mire. So I'll be back for one more at least. The characters are now all broken or too poorly conceived to buy into anymore. So I will watch this show completely detached, with a pulpy sense of curiosity, just to see what happens next. At least until they finally put a bullet into what's left of its brain.
