I actually liked Z-Nation.
It was silly stupid.
And until the last two seasons, they has some good writing.
They treated the source material with the respect it deserved.
Like a comic book.


They didn't try and make it all "r e a l i s t i c" like TWD
Zombies realistic ?? WTF !!!






wait


what


Ricks dead now

:cheers2:
No Rick was taken away in the Helicopter that has been seen through out the show. Everyone thinks he's dead. Andrew Lincoln needed time away from the show to be with his family. Supposedly he has a movie deal to star in 3 TWD cinematic releases.

I was SO into The Walking Dead when it first came about. Obsessed even, but when it got to the last season with Rick, I really struggled to watch it. It's terrible now. It should have ended long ago, IMHO.
Let's be honest, the first season is good.

Season 2 is them walking around the woods yelling, "Sofiaaaa!"

The writing was on the wall even back then.

It had cool "moments", but really the first season is the good one.

I gave up on the TV show a few years ago. Agree with this mostly.

Season 1 showed so much promise and they've spent subsequent seasons trying to live up to that promise.

But they also dropped the ball with two major storylines:

The Governor/Prison stuff was the peak of the comic, and it fell flat.

Aside from Negan's introduction, the Saviors stuff also didn't work out.

TV show Carol is a much better character than comic Carol though. Still alive, for starters.

I've read that those three movies will air on AMC, not in theaters. but as out of ideas as hollywood is, that wouldn't surprise me either.

No they spend a good amount of time on the Zombies that are in close up shots. What really drew in the fans was how graphic the death scenes were/are.... and the writers really dont favor the popular characters either. But I feel a couple popular characters have surpassed their time..... Daryl and Carol could croak off and I wouldn't care.

Over the years they have moved away from being a zombie apocalypse show. Action has diminished and senseless dramatic sidetracks to what started out as a fun show.

I read the first hundred and something issues of the comic but never got into the show. I intended to for the first season when the hype was huge but didn't get around to it, and then the reputation got so bad I never bothered.

Stopped reading the comic right after the whisperer war so the show is almost caught up with where i left off comic wise.

So i know what's coming with Negan and his adventures in nakedness with Alpha but then it will be new territory for me.

i sort of know but only from what others have told me.

This stupid fucking show is still on?
it, and different iterations of it will be forever. remember the only thing hollywood can kill anymore is Zombies, Nazi's and Aliens.

so yeah, we're gonna have zombie shows until we're zombies.

the show got stupid for a while... it was hard to top the season 6 open with the bazooka. Season 10 has been ok.

i've invested so much time in it i hate to call it quits
