She's too good for that show. It has become a steaming pile of crap. Whatever she ends up in, doing topless scenes would also be awesome.

I concur. And use your real accent.

I pay pay good money to see her in movies where she is showered, acting, and wearing clean clothes, but then again I am a raging pervert.

Hire Leonard Cohen.

If they go through with a proper Flashpoint movie, I really want to see her brought back as The Joker opposite Negan's dunk Batman.

She was in a few episodes of Supernatural with her real accent and was a bad girl.

Walking dead is done.

You would think after all these years people would know how to correctly spell her name.

She was awesome in "Chuck" as well.

In the comics, Maggie is still alive and plays a major part in the narrative, so any exit for the character would have repercussions.

So is Carl, yet that didn't stop them.  They ruined this show, it was all downhill with the premier of season 7.

I met her at one of the Walker Stalker fan cons. Lovely to look at in person!

Writing her out of the show would be a great way of not having to deal with the fact that she's been pregnant forever and isn't showing at all.

Very, very few shows remain good and relevant after the five-year mark, IMHO. Oh, some will keep going and going and going (ahem-Simpsons-ahem), but they're never the same again. The light has died inside.

I was happy to have enjoyed six good seasons of Walking Dead, but it seems its time has come. I thought season 7 was a mess and decided to skip season 8. Cohen seems to have the right idea.

Vince Gilligan had the right idea going into Breaking Bad with a five-year plan. Knowing when they were going to end it gave them the foresight to structure each season perfectly.

They really should put a cover on that outlet. That's a safety hazard.

I've been critical of the Hollywood formula for a long time.  Yeah, if your gamble becomes a hit, you want to ride that train as far as you can.  However, very few shows map out seasons 2-5 in enough detail to make it good for that long.  Most recent example I can think of was "Under the Dome".  Good book, interesting idea, and would have made a perfect ONE-SEASON show.  But no, it was popular, so they took it another season or two, where it dropped off the map without anyone noticing.

British TV seems to do the one-season show quite often.  The only break with that tradition was with "Broadchurch".  Season 1 was fantastic, and so it got extended.

Kirkman & co. have been relying on the comics for direction, but what works for a group willing to buy the comics doesn't mean it will work for the general audience.

That's pretty rare. Supernatural had a five year plan too and a pretty good finale. But the checks kept rolling in and I think they're on season 14 now. Still watch it.

I watched to its bitter, ridiculous ending. Boy was that a badly-done show. It's even more incredibly stupid when you realize the whole thing took place over the course of a month (not counting the epilogue). In one episode, Julie got shot in the leg, and within a few episodes (in show time, a few hours or days at best) she was healed and basically fine. Oh, and this was with a bandage applied outside of her jeans the whole time. No proper treatment that I can recall.

People would die in one episode, and family members would mourn for about ten seconds and then forget about them unless they were important to the plot (which was all over the place). Death of close family members had almost no impact on these people, but then they'd get all upset over things like not having electricity or being lied to.

They'd be totally betrayed in one episode, and by the next episode would be teaming up with the guy who killed their loved one an hour ago in show time.

How could I *not* watch that spectacular train wreck?

All this says to me is that Gilligan has the strength to stand by his convictions. If I were a show runner and I was offered millions to continue the show beyond its projected finale, well ... I can't say I wouldn't accept the offer. I've heard Supernatural is pretty good. Haven't watched it myself. Did it maintain the same quality after the 5-year mark? Fourteen years does seems like an awfully long time.

I think it has. Some seasons are better than others of course (usually it's one big story arc per season with some standalone episodes, sometimes tongue in cheek sprinkled in) but there's no season I really dislike.

They make a big deal about five seasons because that used to be the point where a show could go into syndication (reruns until the end of time). That's not really true anymore (see Firefly).

Aye, she should  get out while she can. Before she ends up guest starring on the "after m.a.s.h." version of TWD , fear of the walking dead.

I don't know when I stopped watching, sometime before the guy with the eye patch.

Hasn't Daryl run out of crossbow bolts yet?

Life On Mars, sequel Ashes to Ashes, Torchwood also

The show jumped the shark way back when they introduced the Colonel. Trying to make a "lowest common denominator" soap-opera out of it, ruined it in my opinion. Once again, Hollywood looked inward at its own festering soul, and assumed that dropping back upon their favorite cliche of making living human beings the "villains" would make it more interesting.

Fail.

Same, but regardless how ridiculous Supernatural is its still fun. Walking dead is not fun. Watching almost two seasons of a character continue to always outsmart them and get the upper hand is frustrating to watch. Once they kill that character off a bigger asshole will come along and we will get another 2 years of it. Or spend two seasons trying to find a character everyone know is dead but we continue on anyways...

Season 2 of Broadchurch though was pretty terrible and seemed like they had no idea what to do so "Lets do the same thing but we'll backtrack on everything from season 1"

/heard season 3 was an improvement though

That was the best work she has ever done, in my opinion.
Haven't seen her in anything where I didn't think she was over-acting.

Their funny episodes are really funny.
It has held its own over the years and still fun to watch.  
It gets pretty funny when they find out all their adventures are being written out as fiction and there are conventions devoted to them.
