True that. I had a similar reaction when Breaking Bad ended and the 4th season started in its wake. It's almost unfair to compare this show to those two, but watching high quality television elevates standards...

That is insulting to the Berestein Bears. They educate kids. Twilight would be a bettet analogy.

Well, TWD has the hype and legion of undead fan boys to keep it going. It's really hard to have so many parallel storylines, and you really need a great script and master storyteller to pull it off. Here is just a massive clusterfark.

I also watch Following, Elementry, CSI, Criminal Minds. But my new free TV show is Hannibal. Its been the only Anthony Hopkins free Hannibal thing that I've liked. IMHO each show hass been movie quility story telling.

This season was much better than the last one. Season 3 was so awful. Time to wrap this up, though. I am in as long as Rick is a character. The way they phased him out this season has me suspicious.

Just caught up on season 4, much better than 3. It needs to end after one more season, but it won't. I've read online the writers could see it lasting until 2020....

Hannibal is great. It's the only show not on cable or HBO that has grabbed me and held on in a while. I admittedly like dark, serious shows with some violence, deep plot, and a little dark humor sprinkled in. My favorites are the sopranos, sons of anarchy, breaking bad, the wire, justified, game of thrones, and dexter (although the last 3 seasons were pretty subpar to the others). Blacklist was cool the first season, kinda over it though.

Me too. Killing off Rick would end my fascination with this show, but I think the foreshadowing is intended for the son, which also is completely unacceptable.

Once The Governor was killed off, it was a "given" that they're gonna need a new human threat to the group's survival (Terminus is almost definitely bad news). For each human that dies, they need to introduce more humans or the show would become quite boring.

It looked to me like the bonding between Michonne and Rick's son is kinda hinting at a next-season romance for her and Rick.

It funny you say that. It could happen. But I want to see Tyress and Carol hook-up. It happens in the comicbook. But Carol in the comicbook is way more Efffed up.

I thought last season for the most part was better, except for the weak season finale and the fact they didn't wrap up the prison and Governor storylines. The episodes where Lori dies and Morgan comes back were some of the series best since the pilot though.

The first half of this season was completely idiotic until the mid season finale. I think it's fine when characters do stupid things or make mistakes, but this group acts too dumb to live. I mean, you got a disease spreading around that's killing people, and you are trying to quarantine the sick in a prison block, and not one person among them thinks to lock the dying people in a prison cell to contain the reanimated corpse? Or Carol killing those people... just an absurdly extreme measure with almost no probability of successfully preventing the spread of a disease. That kind of stuff isn't actually stupid characters... it's stupid writing.

The second half has been a bit better. But it still had stuff like the Daryl/Beth episode... that was as bad as this show gets. The finale should be better than the last one hopefully. It's got one of the best Breaking Bad directors behind the helm -- Michelle Maclaren -- who can direct some kick ass action scenes so it should at least be exciting.

I doubt they kill off Rick but Maggie burning her photo because Glenn "won't need it" sure seems like hackneyed foreshadowing...

Just. Kill. Carl. Whenever he is involved, stupid stuff happens. But if they follow the comics at all as it seems they are doing lately it won't happen...sigh.

I assume he's asking what happened to her later in the episode. Who abducted her, where they took her, etc.

Yeah the Carol in the show is actually really strong and has got her stuff together. The Carol from the books was a total co-dependent whack job and it makes sense someone like that would spiral into madness in a world where everything is fickle. Carol in the show should be more messed up than she is with what happened to Sophia, her husband and now these two girls. But somehow she's let those experiences make her stronger which is a huge departure from the source material.

The other issue is chemistry. Michonne and Rick have chemistry with each other. Carol and Tyreese do not. Good TV writers lean on what's working on screen and allow the progression to seem organic and keep the story somewhat fresh.

I still really love this show. This has been a really good season. I didn't like the Darryl and Beth episode, mainly because I didn't like all the hints of "when I'm gone, and you're the only one left". I don't want the show to end that way. But I get why they did it, it's logical.

Overall, the artistic element this season has been cool to watch...almost like each episode is a neat little self-contained, life-like diarama.
