spoiler alert:


well that was a surprise -- biting Carl  -- I don't believe he's dead in the comics but since I'm not a reader, I could be wrong.  even though Carl's character grew on me the past couple of seasons, I still feel worse about Shiva's death.

Talking Dead dropping hints of an interesting finish for Carl when the season picks up in February

Oh don't you worry! We'll find out that the walker who bit Carl actually was wearing DENTURES, so the bite won't fully affect Carl and he'll end up surviving  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

But seriously, I DID NOT see that coming at all. Honestly kind of spoiled my mood at the end of the episode too. It's going to be rough for Rick now  :(

Scott Gimple made a horrible decision for shock value.

Then you realize the season resumes and that last sequence was just a dream  :P

(It's a joke, but with TWD.. who knows anymore)

I threw in the towel after the Glenn dumpster thing. Has it just kept getting dumber?

Some parts are kind of "meh" now.. and it's dragging on a lot nowadays too.

I'm still watching and am a fan of the show, but I could honestly understand some people feeling disappointed now and "taking a break" from it.

The most recent death though (spoiler) was probably the most shocking thing the show has ever done, and it's a HUGE difference from the Comics (so I guess the show is essentially going it's own route now and no longer following the comics much after this current storyline).

Well, time for me to throw in the towel.  Seems like most of you already have.

Last night was the "final episode" for Rick Grimes, and the ending and announcements afterwards were beyond ridiculous. 

You know the show is worried about ratings when every commercial all season has been about the "countdown to Rick Grimes final episodes."  The show went from anybody can die at anytime to announcing and promoting a character being written off to try to boost ratings.

And despite all this they're choosing to expand the universe even more?

After 18 months with their Bigs, the Littles were: 46% less likely to use illegal drugs, 27% less likely to use alcohol, 52% less likely to skip school, 37% less likely to skip a class

it's still the one show I'll watch live.  The acting is still excellent and some of the storylines are very good.

what disappointed me about this was that whole lead-up to Rick's final episode.  turns out to be a big con to get people interested in Rick movies on AMC.  they insisted his character was done with TWD but I find it hard to believe they'll feature him in films dedicated to his character and he's not trying to get back to Judith and Alexandria.

I will say this, I did like what they previewed with Judith.

I still watch this show, just not with any where near the fervor I used to.  It's definitely gone down hill in the quality of the storytelling, even if the acting is still quite good.

And I totally knew they weren't going to actually kill off Rick, but I don't have a problem with that.  I do wish they would have been a little less predictable, though, in how they wrote him off the show.  I am interested to see what the new direction of the show is going to be with Rick and Carl both gone now.  We'll see if TWD can do what most other shows have failed miserably at, and that's successfully reboot the show once the main character leaves.

They need to come to life starting with this game.

Oh sorry.  I thought this was a thread on the Celtics this season.
