I shot the Sherif, But I didn't shoot the Deputy. Fortunately, because if you did it, there wouldn't be anyone left alive to tell you anything about this story seen a hundred times before. === Un adjoint du shérif de base (foot, boobs & booze) à zombie-land. Quoi de neuf Doc ? Je ne sais pas ... vous me direz.
First few seasons were gripping, exciting, and a refreshingly human story in the swamp that is "zombie content". There's a lull in the middle where the action, melodrama, and survival just becomes too repetitive (though not unwatchable). Season 7 had some surprisingly well executed episodes as they chose to follow single characters (such as Darryl incarcerated). It may get better again soon.
Seasons 1-3: Of two minds. Yes, it's repetitive and often meanders, but this is a simple story about survival. It isn't trying to build to anything, and at times, the resulting aimlessness is refreshing. It also has a wealth of well-rendered, incredible characters, which makes all the difference for me. Any series that can move me to tears over the death of a character I started out hating is doing something right.
So good...at first. The early seasons were quite something but never has the decline of a show left such a bad taste in my mouth. The fact that TWD can't die is a little too meta. Once I freed myself, I never looked back, and if I do, I deserve to be turned into a pillar of salt. If you hate yourself that much, keep watching past season 3.
“Whoever battles with monsters had better see that it does not turn him into a monster” (Nietzsche) That's the core of zombie renaissance. Post 9/11 relativization of good and evil. Anxiety about us and the others. So fucking pleasant to see capitalist societies and brain-dead consumers rotting in hell
The first two seasons are the best, (1 for suspense, 2 for melodrama), but everything after that is not particularly entertaining. Really good job on the make-up though, the make-up department never ceases to impress.
there are just some moments of this show that are absolutely mesmerising, but the majority of the show.. isn't... and i eventually gave up on the repetitive storylines and annoying writing/characters. it'll always have a place in my heart though.
