At roughly 35 minutes in we see an alarm clock with the digits 11:59. The numbers change to 12:00 and a small red light appears on the top left of the clock display. This light signals that the clock is now on PM rather than AM. The scene is supposed to take place at midnight but the clock shows that it is noon. See more »

what is this?
4 February 2018 | by vaganot-83240See all my reviews

This is nothing like the series used to be!what is this?Let's hope the new showrunner makes things better and back to its roots.At least something interesting for people to watch and anticipate for the next episode not dead end dialogues and gazing into infinity while the whole world has gone to hell this is not character evolvement this is cheap writing ofcourse some people want to watch it still just like the "young and the restless" for so many years but this was walking dead for crying out loud.this show has taken a soap opera direction and it's high time it stopped or cancel the show once and for all.some of the episodes sincerely insult my intelligence and sense of aisthetics
