- Walking dead in the UK
I thought it was OK, sets up the next phase (from the comics) nicely. They need the odd calmer episode to move some story lines on and for a juxtaposition with the gory episodes so they’re even more shocking. The tiger is a bit OTT but the CGI is great so I’ll allow it, for now…Posted 2 years agosquirrelkingMember
For me, one of the most disappointing aspects of WD is the fact that in 4 or 5 years on the road they’ve mananged to venture about 20miles up and down the same roads.
600ish miles actually, they shifted from Atlanta to Washington(ish).
(Morgan must have crazy good tracking skills)
Watched the first two ths morning, didn’t see what the fuss was about regarding the opening. Till they finished it. Still not as bad as Irreversible though.Posted 2 years ago
Interesting points about distance / territory.
Negan, worse thing since ‘The Governor’ but what’s the Guy’s reach? They seem to be hanging around in a relatively small area with little pockets of civilisation that Negan feeds off – but at their core they’re a nomadic bunch – every series, they find somewhere nice, it turns to shit, usually burns down – they leave.
Rather than suffer under Negan, why not just leave? Is Alexandria worth all the arseache of him.
The Zoms, which caused the most problems in the early series aren’t much to worry about now, I’d be down the road – somewhere south, cold as bawls where they are it seems, wouldn’t suit me.Posted 2 years ago
The saviours still have Darryl in captivity though – Rick and co aren’t going to just abandon him.
The whole series is sponsored by the state of Georgia, which explains why they seem to hang around the place. Not sure that iconic images of your fields and towns crawling with flesh-eating undead is going to boost tourist traffic though.Posted 2 years ago
May give next series a miss – its been milked too long now
Thats what she said.
I agree, its really stumbling along now – but i’ll continue to tune in because I’ve practically rinsed Now TV/Amazon Prime dry.
I’d like to see more ‘ingenious’ plots – where characters get out of sticky situations using their finely honed skills (a la A-Team!). It’s become a bit too ‘side-step zombie – stab zombie in head – jog on’
Definitely moving to the “the real danger is other people” side of the apocalypse.
Also agree. And Negan has real promise there as the worst baddie yet.Posted 2 years agofunkmasterpSubscriber
I’m actually liking this season more than the last few. Great acting and it’s the first time that team Rick actually seem to be in any real danger. I do think that they need to level up the zombies though, some sort of mutation that would make them dangerous again. The whole hunting knife to the head bit is becoming rather boring.Posted 2 years agowilburtMember
Terrible storyline so far, nobody appears to be acting in the way humans would.
IMO its suffering from the LOST syndrome.
….and their definetly rinsing it for all its worth whilst not spending, wheres the city scenes, the winter scenes? Did this zombie outbreak just affect one wood, a field and a train track?Posted 2 years agorichardkennerleySubscriber

I’ve been thinking exactly this for a while. How long has supposed to have passed since the outbreak now? It’s been on 7 seasons and they’re still driving up and down the same roads!
I do like the show, but I hope they look at the bigger picture, I.e what’s happening elsewhere, is there a cure/solution etc? (I get that they follow the comic book for inspiration.)Posted 2 years ago
