I believe any of the others could die. And sure some of them will. The beauty is I don't know who or when. Good show.

Rick dead doesn't make the show more interesting in my opinion.

It would be a hell of a lot more interesting because it's the hard choice and forces the writers to really keep a drama series fresh.


In your opinion. Just like mine is an opinion. Killing off main characters just for that reason isn't good enough to me. Plenty of "fresh" going on for me. Game of Thrones may be more anyone can die, doesn't make WD obvious.

EDIT- I didn't state that as meant. Killing off a main character does keep things fresh, but it doesn't mean you do it just because that is the case.

P.S. I think WD has killed off so many main characters they run the risk of not having enough time do develop the "newer" characters and that would not make for interesting TV. I can watch a bad zombie movie for that.

I actually like the show.

I wouldn't believe it if you weren't saying it.
Anyway, it's a thread on the internet where you can type what you want. I need to accept that.
One last thought, what shows and movies are you watching where it's less obvious who is and isn't going to die in each episode? Because I haven't seen them.

Yes Rick probably will always live. Good. Anyone else could die, pretty close to what they said. Not BS.
I think "really" was meant as "actually like" and not "like a lot".
And the show is still good.
I am speaking for everybody here, which is never a good idea, thus I could be way off base, but I do think most people who read this thread want to talk about what they like, didn't like, BUT don't want to hear about the show sucks. So maybe the thread title should be changed OR some of us just were able to infer that. Again I could be totally wrong on other's thoughts.
And time to stop fighting about TV. The end.

Thanks for the heads up.

You're welcome.

Sneak preview of Episode 10: Rick, Carl and Michonne clear another house.

Great! More crappy writing and dumb characters. Man this show sucks. Can't wait to watch.

The show had an opportunity to get super-interesting with Carl shooting Zombie Rick, but, as usual, they blew it.

3 1/2 seasons into a show that "blows it as usual"? I don't get it

I get this show is must see TV to the masses, hell I watch it every week too, so I'm part of the masses.  But shoddy and inconsistent writing along with dumb characters makes it pale in comparison to shows like Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Justified and True Detective (now there's a show that should be talked about more.  The last six minutes of last weeks episode was ******* nuts).

All my point is..... is then don't watch it. It may not be the best show in all aspects, I get that, but it isn't as bad as you make it sound and again "inconsistent writing and dumb characters", easy solution, don't watch. If I had HBO or had had AMC when Bad started, Bad and Thrones would have been watched, but I don't. I have stopped watching many shows because they sucked. This isn't one of them.

In the end this is my problem I guess and I have to deal. That said, I'd rather this be a thread for people who like the show to post their likes AND dislikes, but not where people who hate it come to tell me they still watch it and it sucks and apparently I'm dumb for not seeing it sucks.

To make a short story long:

Recently I bid on a Tig Fromm Droids loose coin and watched it sell for $49 plus shipping. Which is like four times what I would have paid. There has been another Tig Fromm coin on ebay for a handful of weeks that was with an actual figure that was graded by UKG, but the seller says the case broke so he removed the fig and was just selling the coin still in it's holder inside the combo plastic case that would have had the figure. It still has the UKG sticker showing grades of the fig and coin with the coin being an 85.

He had slowly been dropping the BIN price with make an offer a choice. This morning it was down to $20 so I offered $12.50 and he accepted. With shipping it's still less than $15. Nothing about the one that went for $50 made me aware it was pristine so why did I get mine for so cheap? The case is somewhat obnoxious for sure, but I can't believe it would be that hard to open if I chose to.

I struggle with the "pet" zombie thing too. I understood that her first pets took some time to be docile and that they made it so zombies were less attracted to her. I didn't think the instant you chopped limbs and jaws off that they became totally docile and you could walk around without a care. Why would walking with them on ropes be any different that just walking with two zombies and that wouldn't stop others.

Having said that, I really liked what was going on with Michone and watching her going back to her old ways and then realizing she wanted to be with people she cared about again.

As I and many smarter than me NFL minds said two weeks ago, the NFC Championship game was the true Super Bowl. So yes the Pats would have lost too.

What I am saying is Tom Brady, John Elway, Johnny Unitas, Joe Montana, and Michael Corrleone just shut the door on Peyton Manning and Kay.

If you knew me you'd understand: And the winner is...... Tom Brady.
