While I admit to thinking the same thing, it's a show based on a comic book. I'm OK giving them some suspension of belief on some things like that.

I'm far more pissed that I sat through a boring season, hoping for the payoff and a resolution with Negan, and all I got was a short gun fight and another cliffhanger.

Which means they're going to drag Negan out for yet another season of slow-ass-molasses plot development.

I'm honestly not sure if I want to sit through that again.

I thought that was Judith? But shouldn't she be around 5-6 by now?

And I was thinking Negan was on to Eugene about Sasha dying. And if Eugene is such a total coward, how was he able to be standing on that truck verbally challenging Rick? Wasn't he scared they'd shoot him?

I think the show has only been over the course of a couple of years.

Still it's screwed up, Carl looked like he was 7 at the start, now he looks 16.

OK, I guess that has to be the explanation. Suppose I missed why she's hanging out over there.

That's the problem with this show. They spend like 10 minutes of flashbacks between two characters no one really ever cared about, to try to create some artsy suicide....and ignore a lot of the little things that help tie crap together.

I don't read the comics, so is there a lot in the story line after Negan dies?

I've gotten most of the story from Wikipedia/Internet. I don't care enough about the show to worry if I'm spoiling anything.

And what are you really going to spoil? This show is nothing more, now, than going from one conflict with another survivor community to the next.

I'm about done with the show - I'm more interested in seeing an actual move toward rebuilding and re-connecting society. The whole "warring clan" thing is completely played out.

Quite honestly, it's a little difficult to believe that, in the US, so many of these communities would be run by sociopaths and crazy people. And why are there few/none with former military experience? Where's the community led by a former Army colonel kicking ass and taking names?

Or just the military in general. It's like the entire military just disappeared. I don't think a bunch of roving bands of thugs are going to take out the entire US military in the couple years the story has taken place.

And the almost completely harmless zombie population sure as hell isn't going to do it. Some chick with a sword can take down 20 zombies by herself, but we're supposed to believe Navy SEALs and Green Berets with a full arsenal never stood a chance?

A prison with a chain link fence was able to keep hordes of zombies at bay, but none of the military bases survived?

There isn't a single air force installation still operable that isn't carpet bombing the hordes of zombies into oblivion?

There's just a lot of things about the story are conveniently forgotten.

Or that fact that in the timeframe of the show zombies would of totally decomposed into nothing.

So many wtf's im sure it's why the original creative writers of the show dropped.

That's why there aren't many left out there and aren't much of a threat. Supposedly they can go into an extremely low metabolic "hibernation" state. But Negan mentioned a problem with his walker-wall literally decomposing and falling apart.

As for the military, yeah that's a fairly big hole. The zombies move too slow, and the turning process happens too slowly, to over-run anything, much less trained armies. I've never watched the prequel series (and have no interest in doing so), but how the zombie "herd" reached critical mass is hard to resolve based on what we know.

For comparison, The Strain did the outbreak and spread very well.

Here's another good one for ya....it's been at least two years - gasoline goes bad long before then.

If you took gas/cars out of the equation, the dynamic changes massively.

I want to see these people start running out of shit - candles, propane, batteries, etc..

Why I have stopped watching. Too insufferable with the melodrama/soap opera crap. Not the real feel IT started out with, anymore.
Fear the Walking Dead has managed to keep my attention. Once that series returns I'll be intrigued. It's still fairly young in it's inception though so we'll see how things unfold.
Into the Badlands has returned and I've started to warm up to that series. The first season wasn't as good as I'd hoped. Still young in it's inception too.

In the USA? I find it totally believable! All of our real leaders are sociopaths and crazy people.

Have you ever seen the movie "Idiocracy" ? It is hilarious, but also seems to me like an exaggerated version of the actual 'Murica we live in now, where some people are proud of being stupid. In the movie, the wrestling champion (Think WWE) becomes president, is a reality TV Star much different. LOL.

I agree. And we essentially had bozo the clown as president for 8 years! LOL Crazy isn't it!

Number 4 really stands out as the main reason why I stopped. Combine that to Number 10. Number 10 was the main reason why I struggled maintaining viewer loyalty early on.

many of the other reasons can be overcome if the show is exciting. If's it's boring, you're done.

Filler and spacing is an issue when the acting and writing aren't up to task. They want to be a drama, but they don't know how to truly give characters depth.

If you watch The Americans, then you've seen how drama works when done right.
