Trivia

Among the common nicknames for the walking dead that are shared in different groups, are "Walkers", "Lamebrains", "Biters", "Rotters", "Skineaters", "Lurkers", "Roamers", "Geeks". The term "zombie" has never been used as the people of the show live in a reality where zombies aren't a part of pop-culture such as Resident Evil or Dawn of the Dead. See more »

Goofs

Most characters look over fed and none suffer from the medical, dental, hygiene or hunger challenges they should be facing. Realistically, people should be tired, bony, dying of simple infections, minor injuries, colds and the flu.

Many characters appear to be overweight or of healthy size. This makes no sense considering the constant search for dwindling food supplies. See more »

Glenn Rhee: I'm Korean.

Ever since Negan its going downhill
13 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

This show used to be good, very personal, sometimes a bit melodramatic, but always filled with strong characters and interesting story arcs.

However, ever since the Negan plot started, this has changed. Built up as a super villain who radiates domination, he instead turned out to be a harmless rocker who switches between "nice uncle from next door" to "bat swinging psycho killer" whenever the script demands it.

Negan was supposed to surpass the Governour in terms of cruelty and malice, but in my opinion he doesn't even get close. The Governour had charisma, style, and above all, a real reason for all his experiments; his daughter. We still don't know why or how Negan came to be.

Season 6 was full of chest-pounding and inevitably doomed plotting by the heroes, but it was still fun to watch them descend into mass murder. Especially Carol had incredibly intense moments.

Season 7, after the reveal of Negan, turned out to be a super slow recuperation with the nice uncle coming over for spaghetti. They tried to show how he controls his people with rules and by burning them and so on, but overall it was a super tame story with "Soon(TM)" all over it.

Instead of fixing that in season 8, they now bury the show in one action episode after another. And its not the somewhat smart action we saw in earlier seasons, but 80's style A-Team nonsense action. Cars are bullet sponges, ammo is thrown around like its World War II, a .50 caliber machine gun mows down 50 people with ease but can't hit one dude in a Jeep, and there is no stopping to all the shooting. Even when people are having a quiet moment to talk, you hear often hear shooting in the background.

We rarely have those epic Daryl moments anymore, Rick has become a a hollow shell of a leader, Carl seems to be on vacation. Several other iconic characters were lost and have been replaced with cardboard gunmen.

The Walking Dead needs to stop playing World War Z, cease its nation building, and return to what made it great. Everyday survival by interesting characters in a hostile world.
