Tell that to the folks at AMC. They'll probably laugh so hard at you that snot will come flying out of their collective noses.

"We call it Riding the Gravy Train!"

The Walking Dead is their hottest show. The ratings will dictate its demise.

Yeah, but that's different. I'm sure it's got to be different.

I've heard this show - or its makers - is angling for 10 years. Which gives me little faith that I'll be watching much past this next half season. If we're gonna get four or five years of big stuff-up / characters split up / 10 weeks of pointless stumbling around the woods / reunion, I'm out.

Part of what made my reaction to last night so negative is the little things. Ultra capable, observant, alert Darryl is:

a. caught unawares by a freaking guy with a gun in a burnt out woodland
b. fumbles hopelessly for his crossbow for about five minutes while a zombie walks up to him.

I won't even get started on Diabetes Girl's death.

Yeah, I agree with you there. That's not like Darryl to do such things. Especially stumbling for his crossbow. Darryl could find that in his sleep. Sure, it wasn't the strongest episode, but not every one can be a home run.

Memo to shows: Don't make your characters stupid, don't blow the internal credibility of the world for cheap thrills. They did the same thing in the closing death march of Dexter. By the end Battista and that Quinn guy were about as much cops as my granny.

Basically the magical rule of The Walking Dead now is that if the camera is close in on a character, everything outside the frame becomes unknowable to them as well as to us. That's how people can get snuck up on. It's cheap.

Oh of course I realize this to. Just personal preference. I compare a lot of shows to LOST because I feel like once they had an ending in sight, every show had a sense of urgency to it.

Lost lost me after 3 episodes and I never returned to watching it. It wasn't an awful show. It just wasn't my bag. Just like I never got into Game of Thrones. My gf was into TWD for years before I finally sat down and paid attention to it. Now, I'm hooked. I don't need every episode to be the greatest episode ever. There's going to be peaks and valleys. Some will be slower paced and focus on a small amount of characters and some will be action packed with the whole gang involved. I do prefer the shows where the whole cast is involved because there are so many great characters on the show.

I think we'll have a "jump the shark" moment coming up this Sunday with Glenn, unless they go back and show how he survives in a later episode.

Or maybe it's just lazy writing.

Right, because you've had plenty of success writing scripts for highly successful tv shows.

I will never jump ship. I've been invested since day 1. I love this show, the characters, and the actors way too much.

I never jumped ship. But I definitely will be critical.

I'll be so critical you won't be able to stand me by the time this show finally ends. I'll keep watching no matter how bad it gets.

It's that sometimes they cut away from what seems like an impossible situation

Glenn is shot and has two walkers on him. We only see him a few moments later about to shoot nick

Rick appears to be surrounded by walkers in an RV. We cut to see him running down the road.

And now Glenn is trapped under nicks body and he escaped by hiding under the dumpster.

It just seems so anticlimactic. Especially since they trolled us hard with his "death"
