What part of this conversation feels "personal" to you?  ??? Is that just your go to when you don't have a response?

Beyond a difference in opinion of where they should take the show, your posts have been rather dickish. 

Is this where I go back and list all the things I've been called in the last 24 hours?

For everyone else's annoyance level's sake, I promise I'm done after this. I have posted some a*hole things. True. However, only as an over reaction to something as trivial as a tv show. I, again my opinion, I obviously don't know you, think you enjoy the a*hole comment as a part of your argument, and that isn't just based on this particular conversation.

Ok Jeff, Jesse, and the others that just want to talk about the show, I promise I am done until we are discussing this Sunday's episode. SORRY all.

Lori and Dale were the only two big deaths on the show that I found shocking and unexpected. The writing was on the wall for Shane, Merle, Andrea, Herschel and The Governor so I wasn't surprised when they bit the dust. As much as I enjoy Daryl and Rick, seeing one of them get ambushed and eaten by walkers would really kick things up a notch.

Part of why we all saw those deaths coming is because TWD kills off main characters. Not because it was just so expected and the easy thing to do.

You must have a pretty broad definition of what a main character is.

Again killing off Rick or the show isn't good still makes no sense. And apparently that's what you think. Do you want the main character in all shows you watch killed off? I think I am done debating with you. I appreciate Greg and Matt M debating with me and Justin, etc because it feels like a friendly debate. Any time YOU say anything it seems like you're being an a*hole for the sake of being an a*hole, in my opinion, so it riles me up too. I could be reading you wrong, and if so I apologize, but I don't think so, so that is a pretty worthless apology.

We will just have to agree to disagree and I will continue watching the show and enjoying it and rooting even harder they never kill off Rick both because I like his character and just to be a jerk. Thanks.

I hear what you are saying there, but it still doesn't get me to one of them NEEDS to die.

I can't wrap my head around the only way to make this show good is to kill off Rick, Michone, or Daryl. I know that isn't exactly what is being said, but close enough. I hope Michone or Daryl goes, but not for a while. I just want to know it could happen. Don't do it for the sake of doing it.

I wonder how many people are hoping Rick, Michone, or Daryl will die. It's not always about shock value.

Kill off Daryl, Rick or Michonne.  That'll get people talking.


I don't look at ratings, but I don't think TWD is doing too bad in the ratings to need to "get people talking". People will also talk if the zombies all revert back to regular humans. Doesn't make it the way to go.

Finished "Crucible" last night. Liked it up until the climax and now I am really confused where the novels are going to go from here.

Not that anyone else reads this thread, but I was just thinking that Walt God.... I mean Disney coming in and deciding what did and didn't happen in the EU, probably is exactly why this book ended like it did and why it is a stand alone. Boooooooooooooooo. Thanks for ruining Pixar and Star Wars Disney (SW still to be determined).

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.
