Glenn and the dumpster was a joke but the point when the show really reached bottom of the barrel tier was the SEASON ENDING cliffhanger before glenns death and then the constant "faking" of Ricks death. We know he's not dying, stop trying.
Long time fan of the comics, this show started going down hill seasons ago. Probably around the time they started playing Showrunner shuffle. They should have just kept Darabont.
The show has sucked ass for years. Same repetitive shit with filler episodes full of boring characters.
You can get away with the repetitive "Survive, seek shelter, engage enemy" storyline if it's written by competent people who aren't turning all the characters into braindead fucksponges.
The lack of any coherent logic behind so many of their decisions the last few seasons and the way they interact with their environment/resources is so distracting that it doesn't matter how good the big-picture plot happens to be.
The show died much earlier than he claims in terms of quality. The day they hired Gimple at the end of season 3 it began its steep decline.
He's right to an extent. However, I think the main issue can be boiled down to this:
THEY STRETCH THE STORY WAY TOO MUCH!
I meant the comics are great. The blueprint is all there. Just follow it. But noooooooon... They have to have 2 out of 3 episodes be pointless and stretch the content to make more money.
Like many other, I have given up on the show mostly because it is wasting my time and insulting my intelligence.
I stopped watching after that retarded gun battle.. Worst I have seen in ages.
The second season killed the show
Can't really argue much with his points. The show has become boring.
God damn shame too. I like to pretend the pilot episode was a standalone movie and nothing ever happened after that.
I quit watching after the first episode when they got to Terminus. I just didn't care anymore. I'm glad I never got to meet Negan. He seems like a douche.
Wtf they killed Carl?? I knew he was never going to become his comic version bad ass but I still find that death ridiculous. I stopped watching consistently after they botched the Governor. i stopped watching completely after they introduced Negan. The character does not translate to tv; too over the top and cringey.
