Nope too much for me
26 October 2016 | by joseph_smythSee all my reviews

I've watch TWD from day one. The characters have been strong and the development on the whole well paced with excellent twists until this episode. Over the top. Yep. Unnecessary. Certainly. Really weak pacing and scripting. Surprisingly, yes. I feel like they have let the fans down and seem to be moving from a show which has a wide(r) appeal to a more gruesome horror gore audience. Killing Abraham and Glenn felt gratuitous and unnecessary for the plot to develop. There was still plenty of room for those characters to grow into but clearly the showrunners felt the audience needed this twist or they lacked the imagination to achieve the 'impact' in any other way.

Its not for me for sure. I'll leave it with the great series with the Guvnor and even last seasons 'No Way Out' as personal highlights. For the undoubted millions who will stick with it I hope you enjoy and it improves.
