I thought the episode was fascinating. But it's hard to accept that's how you wrap up the penultimate season finale. I hope they figure out a way to work around covid for this final season.

They film in Georgia and they were one of the first to relax restrictions....but overall these last few episodes were a waste.

Finally finished the episode.  I really liked it.  That said, it was another filler episode and would have been better placed with the introduction of Negan.   I wonder if the last four were just fillers to complete the season due to Covid concerns.

I don't really have any hopes at all regarding season 11.  This past one was so bad and spread out I don't really remember what happened and for me there was never a "must watch now" episode.  So, we'll see how the next one goes before putting the show to bed.

However, I am looking forward to FTWD.  I think that show has really gained it's legs.  Although not perfect, it's far more tolerable to watch than when it started.

The only potentially interesting plot point in all of these filler shows when when Eugene and the crew were interacting with the white armored society.  We learned nothing about what was going on there and only had one episode on it that was mostly Princess hallucinating in a boxcar.

I sure hope they have a plan to go out with a solid story line and something compelling to wrap up the series.  It started so well and has faded so badly.

Anyone else watch the season 11 premier last night?

I thought it was pretty good...they seem to be moving back to the horror aspects of the walkers and the little twist at the ends was pretty good!

I didn't even realize the season had started.  I hope my DVR picked it up.

I'm guessing you don't have AMC+ Dave....they actually post episodes to the streaming service early.  If your DVR didn't pick it up, they will, most likely, re-air the episode before episode 2 next Sunday.


I should point out, that if anyone here does have AMC+, please refrain from posting about episodes before their air on the AMC network.  I'm already seeing reviews for episode 2 when it won't air for 6 more days.   :-\

Last night's episode was pretty good.  Some gruesome scenes and the Maggie/Negan storyline is evolving.

While I'm still enjoying the show the fight bad guys, rinse repeat storylines have been old for a while.

I think I'm a good half season behind on TWD.  I've actually stopped watching the new stuff and went back to watch Season 1 with my son.  The storyline and acting was so much better back in the "old days."

I finally caught up with the past few weeks of episodes. 

Some good, some bad, and definitely repetitive storylines.  I'm still holding out hope that there is something creative and new that helps wrap up the series.

I'm enjoying Maggie/Negan and even like the Reapers. BUT bringing in new "bad guys" when you're wrapping up a show just seems wrong.

I did enjoy the Darryl focused episode this past week.

It was fine, but it felt a lot like when Daryl was captured by The Saviors and held in The Sanctuary and had a bromance with Dwight. 

Swap Leah for Dwight and The Reapers for The Saviors and you've got last week's episode.  However I did like the Apocalypse Now / Marlon Brando-like leader Pope.  Although you gotta wonder how an unhinged leader manages to keep his crew together, functioning, and fed for ten years.

I'm personally tired with all the conflict among the living.  It would make sense if they were fighting for resources or something, but now it seems like the only people left alive are those that want to kill every other living person.  And apparently they've all got plenty of food because the spend all their time going after their enemies, and are willing to use gasoline/kerosene to burn down a building instead of power a vehicle or generator.

I'm more interested in The Commonwealth storyline and what that might bring.  Its been a long time since our protagonists have encountered another friendly group

I liked the Col Kurtz vibe as well.  The easy answer to how he keeps control is fear.  The rest of the reapers are loyal mainly due to fear.  The problem with that is that it's a tenuous hold over people....you could see that in Leah's eyes at the end of the episode.
