More slow then boring, no doubt it will tie in to the main story line.

I can see them tying in soon but this is exhibit A as to why they should have 3 or 4 stories an episode like GOT. There is no way a whole episode should have been dedicated to this.

I still liked it.

GOT sometimes feels unsatisfying because they try to squeeze in too many stories per episode.

You shouldn't have to backtrack 7 episodes to work out how certain characters got where IMO. These one group per episode tellings would work ok if the show was released a season at a time but when they're a week apart it's pretty poor IMO.
well, I guess you could say that I'm buy curious.

I enjoy the method, would you prefer if all 5 episode we've had so far were mushed together over the 5 weeks?

Not really my place to comment on what I'd prefer really as I'm probably only still watching out of habit.

Yes I think that would be much better. I cant think of another show that does it this way.

For example we havent seen Carol or Morgan since Episode 2, seen Maggie once since the death scene.

The speed of the show seems to have slowed down as well.

Negan is the only one trying to entertain the audience.

So any feedback? I thought it was a very good ep, really sets up the second half of the season. The last 5 mins turned back to clock, like they dragged out the entire season just for that one scene.

I have found the season tediously slow with so many unnecessary scenes.

That last episode had more good scenes then the average episode this season has dished up.

- boat scene
- Darryl escaping
- darryl cuddling rick
- rick growing a pair finally
- negan's performance

But it also had some pathetic boring scenes or starts to scenes were I am wondering whether editors watched the thing before they submitted.

I've been disappoint with this season before last night, but that Ep tied it all up for me. If they'd smashed through Daryl getting locked up and escaped quickly, Rick being down for a week or two and Maggie getting over Glenn over a week last night wouldn't have been so great and emotionally stirring.

It also pulled emotion from seasons past, in hindsight, I think they played with the viewer really well. It was subtle, and maybe the most in-depth writing they've done. They've left me absolutely pumped for the second half of the season.

Different strokes for different blokes.

But, I personally don't see silent scenes whilst people are just looking at each other trying to show some sort of emotion as subtle, to me its more bold and the beautiful garbage. To be fair though I loved bold and the beautiful as a kid, so maybe I should just re connect with my inner child and appreciate what they are trying to achieve.

Or it was just sloppy with too much filler.

Better episode but I'm not sure it covers for what's been dished up so far.

You know things will be tied together yet have to make a genuine effort to remember what's happening to 2 integral characters of the show that haven't appeared for 6 episodes.

It's funny you said that, after the episode where Carol starts seeing the walkers as people I said to Mrs Fui "Remember back when they had to worry about Zombie hoards?" Up until this week's ep, I can't remember the last time there was a proper zombie threat.

**Edit** There was that ep last year when that quarry broke, but even then they weren't a huge issue as in season's past

Agreed. I feel like it's too early in the apocalypse for Beyond Thunderdome style groups.

Judith's daughters generation at least.

Very strong episode.

Dwight and Eugene were great in the episode and it had just the right amount of Negan.

Did the season get better? It got so boring after episode 1 and they dumbed down Negan so much for tv. The second half is usually stronger but I haven't been keeping up

Its been ok. For every good story like Rick/Michonne travelling around there is also a Rosita or Trash people story. It feels like they are moving the chest pieces around waiting for All Out War.

My two cents:

The Rick and Michonne romance does not work. It looks fake and feels fake. They, along with Daryl are the hard cases. Putting two of them in a sexual relationship is not working.

The new community with the weird haircut lady is kind of mad Max. Who knows what will happen here.

The past few seasons have taken on a scope where they focus on one or two people. It's not working. It gets boring when you have a Dwight / Rosita/ Eugene episode.
What's with Tara, anyway? It's a zombie apocalypse, yet she's getting fatter and fatter each year?

Morgan has snapped (again), Carol is annoying as hell. She serves no purpose in the show. Was a sook. Became a heart felt warrior, went crazy, went hard, went crazy again and ran away where she went tough again....surely she could have died off instead of Glenn.

I'm getting a little frustrated by TWD. It's dragging on with fringe characters, while not focusing enough on the ones that matter like Negan, Ezekiel,Maggie.
