Re: The Walking Dead
Did you watch the season sneak peak this go around? Seems to be a goodn.

Same lie every year.  Sneak looks good, season mired in walking and molasses.

Re: The Walking Dead
No comment on the season premiere?

A metric fudge ton of zombie action and Rick silencing folk.  Good start.

Thought so too. Best premier I thought so far. I'm still pissy about all the damn commercials though.

Re: The Walking Dead

I think I've reached the zombie saturation point.  I was underwhelmed by the whole thing and not sure I wanted to hang on to the end when I realized it wasn't going to be over at 9:00. 

My exact comment was "Ugh.. 30 more minutes of this?" 

I've threatened to be done with this series several times but I'm losing my patience and willingness to suspend disbelief with things that are just stupid.  I'm about two episodes from pulling the plug and not caring any more.  I got nothing out of Fear Walking Dead and quit on it with no regrets. Yeah, pussy move for not waiting out the whole season, but at least I own it. 

Some of my many, many problems with the show:

1) How are people still fat?  There's no food for months.  Everybody would be borderline skeletal
2) Where did they get water while they wandered the woods?  Where are they shootting?
3) Helium balloons?  Seriously? Where did they get those?
4) Styrofoam cups to pass out water? Seriously?  We're cool with disposables now?
5) If they had flares and an unlimited supply of weapons/gas why didn't they just incinerate the zombies in the quarry?  Draw them out to walk the road?  Ignorant.
6) That baby would be deader than dogshoot.
7) Why is EVERY car they get cranked up to use a piece of shoot beater?  Every car in the world is abandoned.  Are there no BMWs? No decent trucks?
8) With lots in Atlanta full of new RVs, why did Dale pick an old piece of garbage with leaky hoses?  A new one would have given them lots of amenities.  And why not have EVERYBODY riding in one?  Sleep in comfort, keep the zombies out. 
9) How are the girls keeping their hair up and nice? And cut? And shaving those armpits and legs?
10) Where are they getting Tampax?
11) Where are the zombie babies?  Zombie dogs?  Dogs in general?
12) Where is the helicopter from Season 1 Ep. 2? 

I just can't take it seriously enough any more.  Too many gaps.

Didn't say it was perfect but I do realize its a TV show. Sure there are many things to pick apart but damn, what zombie show/movie could one not pick apart. I do think you make some good points. You should send this over to AMC if you haven't already.

I'm either going to quit watching it or quit talking about it.  Probably both.  No longer interested or invested.

The hype of this show vs what it actually is - is a huge gap.

It is no Breaking Bad. It is no Sopranos. Or any other legendary show. It just isn't that good. As as K has said, its so far out there that its laughable.

Not, it sure as hell isnt at that level. Breaking Bad was the shiznit. Walking Dead is entertaining.

If you only pick one, go with the latter.

That little chick, Enid, that Carl wants to bang.

Re: The Walking Dead

The Wolves would be my guess.

They use the dead as soldiers (see the W carved into their foreheads) and come through to clean up/pillage after.

That little chick, Enid, that Carl wants to bang.

Agreed...that'll be the exposition of her double-agent status and the start of some tension that will end in Carl murder-death-killing the bitch.

Laughable was Deadwood, and very entertaining.

But I agree this show gets far too much pub. It's good but not can't miss tv. If you dvr it, it is just something to watch when it's convenient, unlike the others you mention.

The guys on Talking Dead kind of hinted The Wolves which tells me its not. Also, the 2nd episode preview is all about Enid out of Alexandria with no Carl to be found, and no Carl to be seen in Episode 1 that I recall.

No.

Thanks to your stellar input I have decided that I will no longer watch the show but will post my criticisms based on what I think probably happened using the repetitive and silly pattern the show has followed over the last however many years. 

The show WAS good.  For two teriffic first episodes.  It has lived off that for far too long.  It doesn't sustain like the other shows mentioned -- Sopranos, Breaking Bad, etc -- did. They grew. And got better.

Re: The Walking Dead
fudge's sake...No one has claimed that TWD is a triumph of storytelling and has revolutionized television.  It's a fun, sometimes gory, sometimes melodramatic diversion.
