The Walking Dead 601 "First Time Again" & 602 "JSS" Discussion

Unread postby musicmonkey » Thu Oct 08, 2015 12:12 am

The Walking Dead has exploded in recent years into popular culture. It's a fascinating look at survival and what it means to be human. How far is "too far gone". Is family blood or bond? Are you a fan? Excited about Season 6? Let's discuss.

The first two episodes have been great so far... action-packed!

Has Carol lost her humanity? I'm glad she wept on the porch.

Is Morgan wrong for clinging on to his humanity? What would a lawless world be like?

Carol was amazing. I get worried when one character gets so much screen time, that's not usually good for their longevity on the show.

Yes, that's true. But Carol was supposed to die in Season 3, Episode 4, "Killer Within". Instead, they killed off T-Dog. I think Carol's death will be so shocking but could also hurt the show's ratings. I think she's one of the untouchables for at least a few more seasons.

The first two episodes of this new season have been among the most riveting of the series so far. A few concerns/frustrations:

    Introducing new characters in an episode, just to kill them off in the same episode. Both S6 episodes so far did this.
    Building up to something that lasts only minutes. Terminus was a good example of this approach.
    Short seasons with too long between them causes me to lose my love for characters.
    Leaving characters in the background, featuring them for one or two episodes, and then killing them. See Beth

I'm sticking with the show for now, but I am not feeling as addicted to it as I did after seasons 1 and 3.
