Nope. I've got the first three seasons on DVD and the first half of season four still on my Tivo.

Are you telling me this show is really a prequel?

It all feels so....repetitive to me.

Let me guess - they meet some new people / get to a new place, establish some sense of normalcy amid the threat of zombies.  Then something happens that causes danger.....mostly caused by people.  We learn, once again, that the real 'monsters' are the people that are left.  Even if they aren't pure monsters, the situation makes them enemies and it's all deep and stuff.  But then lots of zombies and fighting and some beloved characters die.  But that's okay, 'they' win, move on and they meet some new people / get to a new place, establish some sense of normalcy amid the threat of zombies.  Then something happens that causes danger.....mostly caused by people.  We learn, once again, that the real 'monsters' are the people that are left.  Even if they aren't pure monsters, the situation makes them enemies and it's all deep and stuff.  But then lots of zombies and fighting and some beloved characters die.  But that's okay, 'they' win, move on and  they meet some new people / get to a new place, establish some sense of normalcy amid the threat of zombies.  Then something happens that causes danger.....mostly caused by people.  We learn, once again, that the real 'monsters' are the people that are left.  Even if they aren't pure monsters, the situation makes them enemies and it's all deep and stuff.  But then lots of zombies and fighting and some beloved characters die.  But that's okay, 'they' win, move on and  they meet some new people / get to a new place, establish some sense of normalcy amid the threat of zombies.  Then something happens that causes danger.....mostly caused by people.  We learn, once again, that the real 'monsters' are the people that are left.  Even if they aren't pure monsters, the situation makes them enemies and it's all deep and stuff.  But then lots of zombies and fighting and some beloved characters die.  But that's okay, 'they' win, move on and  they meet some new people / get to a new place, establish some sense of normalcy amid the threat of zombies.  Then something happens that causes danger.....mostly caused by people.  We learn, once again, that the real 'monsters' are the people that are left.  Even if they aren't pure monsters, the situation makes them enemies and it's all deep and stuff.  But then lots of zombies and fighting and some beloved characters die.  But that's okay, 'they' win, move on and  they meet some new people / get to a new place, establish some sense of normalcy amid the threat of zombies.  Then something happens that causes danger.....mostly caused by people.  We learn, once again, that the real 'monsters' are the people that are left.  Even if they aren't pure monsters, the situation makes them enemies and it's all deep and stuff.  But then lots of zombies and fighting and some beloved characters die.

Actually, I'm guess the little psycho girl has been the one leaving rats for the walkers.  Then Carl has to take her out like he did the psycho kids in the comic, since I don't think we really got an analogous situation to that yet.

I'll be happy as long as Negan is not so much as mentioned for at least a year and a half.

Nina_Hartley's_Ass: Helix sucks.


It's not...terrible.  I think it has potential.  What pisses me off to no end, though, is the amount of "I'm hiding something from you and scheming" looks that are almost cartoonishly done, especially by the Japanese scientist.  Also, 90% of the plot seems to be based on "do the dumbest thing possible in any given situation".  Considering how early in the series the show is, I'm going to give it a chance.  Mostly that's because I expect they're going to have to significantly change the premise at the end of the first season since just containing a plague in a facility is not sustainable.  Then again, there's Under the Dome.  So who knows.

I think that was all due to that show runner dude they fired. He farked it all up and in order to get things back on track they had to go back over and redo things to fit the "storyline" that they actually wanted to tell. My guess is that the AMC execs listened to whats his face and it ended up blowing up in their face at the end of season 3. We'll see how the rest of the season plays out.

That's where I am with it now, too, though I think the only reason I'm even that invested in it is because I've watched the show since it started and really don't want to quit.  The only characters left that I give a fark about are Daryl and Carol (eh, and Carl to a lesser extent), and since they're largely treated as side characters anymore, I'll watch the new episodes, but I'll do it when I feel like it - not Sunday night at 9pm like I used to.  And even then, they have to go somewhere with the plot or I'll stop watching it altogether.

I think the constant firing of show runners is taking its toll.  Darabont might be hard to work with, but he's also really good at what he does.  He had a vision for the show that lent it an air of humanity.

Lizzie was feeding the rats to the zombies. And IMO killed David and Karen which got Carol to burn the bodies and lie to Rick to cover it up.

I'll definitely watch, but they should have wrapped it in three seasons. They were out of material last season, and the absurd way it ended, with the 'assault by' on the prison by The Governor and the townsfolk that was repulsed by just Glen and Maggie. I seriously think they should have played the Benny Hill theme song while the Governor yelled "run away" as they all panicked and fled in ludicrous retreat. That episode was written by people reaching for something, and it was extremely clumsy.

The mistake was not killing him off sooner.   Dumb character with terribly lame motives, who probably should have (and would have) been shot when he opened fire on his own people during the first prison retreat.

Well, they were hardly an army, while the prison gang has already done quite a bit of fighting.

Remember, even the tough leaders of the Gov's new crew avoided confrontation and were quite wimpy (when even the military guys were panicking at the zombies in the cabin).

No, the bigger issue with that story arc was why the townsfolk were willing to follow the governor in an assault and didn't even stop to consider hearing the other side of the story or stepping up when rick tried to sue for peace.

No question about that. The townsfolk were very conveniently unquestioning of the Governor's actions and motives, and his campground gang were even more so, never giving a second thought to the sudden, inexplicable disappearance of the guy who was their leader that morning, haha. But that's a fictional necessity to a certain extent, analytical background characters questioning the logic of events would be inconvenient. But I still say the first attack on the prison was silly as fark, and slap-in-the-face anti-climactic. Run away!!! Run away!!!
