AMC's Walking Dead mini-series!

Comments

  • I told my buddy at work the best thing to come from that episode was Tara's very likely demise.

    Screen time for lesser characters on the Walking Dead is like being given a title in Game of Thrones. You don't come back from that.

    Ashame that little girl killed Jon Snow.
  • Season 7, Episode 7. "Sing Me A Song"

    Much, much better pacing here, as several subplots are juggled and will no doubt converge in next week's midseason finale. Also a much better use of Jeffrey Dean Morgan here. Negan is the cold yet calculating survivor who knows how to evaluate those still alive in this world and use that to his advantage, and that shone through here in his interactions with Carl after Carl's plan predictably backfired. Everything moved forward and didn't drag -- good enough for me. 8/10
  • Shame that the Walking Dead spinoff wasn't from Negan's point of view though perhaps the next Walking Dead spinoff does this.
  • They don't need a spinoff for that. They already do episodes where they show things from a lot of different characters' pov.

    Hell I'm willing to bet Negan has gotten more screen time than anyone else so far this season.

    And flashback episodes are also on the table (ala Morgan).
  • Season 7, Episode 8. "Hearts Still Beating"

    As the title implies, now we get the glimmer of hope as the group turns the corner and begins to start fighting back. Of course it comes with a price (and of course it's not major characters who pay it). This show paid a heavy price in viewership by neutering its most beloved characters -- let's see if some will come back once football season is over. Still hoping for a Negan backstory episode. 7/10
  • If they don't do a Negan Backstory, then have him pop up in Mexico to end the Fear the Walking Dead cast or give Negan a spinoff.
  • Season 7, Episode 9. "Rock in the Road"

    The Alexandrians begin recruiting. Good pace, as we hit the major plot points and keep things moving, with most characters getting their stories advanced. And we get some questions to ponder going forward. Highway scene was pretty cool, too. 8/10
  • I'm very happy they didn't come out at a snail's pace (like visiting one town one episode, another town the next, then another at home, then another going out, etc.), and it looks like the next episode will keep the pace up.

    But this is the Walking Dead and I expect it to slow to a walker's pace around the 4th or 5th episode and not pick back up until the 7th or 8th.
  • Season 7, Episode 10. "New Best Friends"

    The Alexandrians have an ally and we get a major reunion, which I thought was really well done. One of the better episodes that didn't involve a lot of action - Norman Reedus was really strong here. Again, we keep most major story beats moving forward and have enough questions left unanswered to keep viewers curious as to how the group will get to the goal of a united front against the Saviors. 8/10
  • Season 7, Episode 11. "Hostiles and Calamities"

    The Saviors react to recent events, with much of the episode devoted to elevating Dwight and Eugene into major players. Both resort to their old tricks, Dwight being devious to maintain his place in the Saviors hierarchy and Eugene using his gift of gab -- something that got him KTFO'ed by Abraham a way back when -- to earn Negan's trust. Again, not a lot of action, but this was fine -- better than other episodes where they've spotlighted relatively minor characters. 7/10

    Ok...so now that I've watched every single episode and every season, ( thks to Netflix and also binge-watching season 7) I'm excited to have a place to discuss this show that I've become so addicted to. Never saw that coming! Wish my family watched it, but I can't convince em, and I've tried!!!. Anyway, I love this show. I love the characters, I love the actors, I love the make-ups, it's just so good! That said, I thought this weeks episode was a little zombie lite. I would like to see some new twists and turns regarding the zombie side of things. Other than that...I was good with it.

    I did like that Eugene enjoyed that song the Saviors used to torture Darryl. Also, that Mad Max looking walker in the previous episode was awesome.
  • Season 7, Episode 12. "Say Yes"

    Rick and Michonne continue their search for supplies. Eh, not a fan of this one, but after how grim the first half of this season was, I suppose there's a segment of the fanbase that wanted to see something a little more light-hearted. At least they're finally going to further the Oceanside plot point. And apparently Carol's getting her groove back, so there's that to look forward to. 5/10
  • Season 7, Episode 13. "Bury Me Here"

    Another attempt at sabotage goes wrong, but also goes right. Easily Lennie James' best performance to date in the series -- calling Benjamin "Duane" was a great touch -- and more quality work from Melissa McBride and Khary Payton. You knew this had to happen, and now here we are, but the execution (literal and figurative) was very well done. Best episode outside of the premiere this season, and a top 10 episode in the show's history. 9/10

    Great twist...did not see it coming! ......and Carol! it's about freakin time she gets back in the game. I can't believe only 3 episodes left to season 7. Whatever shall I do this summer?!
  • I want to seek the Tiger murder some Saviors.

    Game Of Thrones?!?
  • Season 7, Episode 14. "The Other Side"

    Another attempt to elevate relatively minor players, as Rosita and Sasha begin to execute their plan. Total placeholder episode as we ramp up toward the season finale. Some good interaction between Daryl and Maggie, and Eugene's reaction at the Sanctuary gates could prove interesting, but otherwise forgettable. 5/10
  • I did like how this episode looks to set up next week's episode.
  • Season 7, Episode 15. "Something They Need"

    Sides are switched, but everyone is a shade of grey. OK, then. If Atlanta, Woodbury, the prison, Terminus and now Alexandria didn't hammer that point home, here we are with another reminder. Predictable payoff for the Oceanside arc (Whatever happened to Heath?) and it's looking like the end for a couple characters. This was fine, but nothing you wouldn't expect if you've read the comics, as they've stuck pretty close to that script. 6/10
