I actually like the show.

Matt...How does Carl not shooting Rick equal "dumb and directionless?" The point of the episode was that Carl has been building up resentment for his dad and feels he doesn't need him. Him NOT shooting Rick signaled his realization that he'd rather die than be alone. Thinking Rick is zombified, he'd actually rather just end it all right there versus going on alone. That's not dumb - its actually pretty powerful character development. And it's obviously taking a main character in a new, more mature direction. Could it be that the show is solid and it's you who just doesn't get it?
By the way, Kirkman is on record as saying the WD is "Rick's Story," so killing him off for shock value would be a pretty stupid move. You want to compare this to Breaking Bad, but you're offering up the equivalent of Walter getting killed in season 2 and the rest of the story focusing on Jesse.
Beyond MY opinion, I think Nick and others are just bothered by the constant ripping on the show. This is obviously a thread for people that really like the show.
That doesn't mean you can't point out things that bother you or that you wish had happened differently, but saying the storyline sucks or the writers constantly "blow it" isn't going to make you a lot of friends here. And frankly, it makes you sound pretty stupid for continuing to waste your time on a show you don't like.
Great! More crappy writing and dumb characters. Man this show sucks. Can't wait to watch.
Thanks for the heads up.
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.
I know... reminds me of the Coors Light commercial they did with John Wayne a few years back. Spooky.
Or did David Coulier make a clone of himself before his untimely death?
Looks like Uncle Joey will be making an 'undead' appearance in a Super Bowl commercial... what do you think about that, Scott?
Of all the lasting legacies that Seinfeld has given us, Festivus, the fake Christmas substitute holiday created by Frank Costanza, may be the most enduring. Recall fondly, if you will, the highlights of Mr. Costanza’s beautiful holiday: a pole, the airing of grievances, and the feats of strength.
Seinfeld may be long gone, but Festivus lives on, at least in the state of Florida, where a six-foot Festivus Pole made out of Pabst Blue Ribbon cans has been erected in the state Capitol building in Tallahassee, according to NPR.
Artist/protester/drinker of cheap beer Chaz Stevens constructed the Festivus Pole to protest the lack of separation between church and state after seeing a Nativity scene at the Capitol building.
Not sure whether or not Stevens is planning on challenging his state representatives in a feats of strength wrestling match.
Yeah I didn't put it together though till he said in TD, that was where it came from... Then again I didn't even think to ask, "Why Brian?" (Hardwick did) because I was just thinking it was something random he picked out of thin air to be creepy.
