    I thought the ninja stuff seemed a bit a silly and unbelievable. Well, relatively unbelievable given it's a show with zombies.

    It just seemed to be an unnecessarily elaborate and dangerous way of taking down the zombies that left then open to attack. They aren't blocking your strikes, just twat them in the head.

    His character has been wasted from the start in this, he maybe cool in the comics but for the show they made him dull and a wimp until now!

    The last show runner really ruined the material he had to work with.

    Question.

    Watched up to S7 and thought poorly of it overall.

    Netflix finally added S8 and having watched the first two episodes last night (which were a mix of comical awfulness and pure boredom), and reading a good few spoilery 1/10 reviews I'm seriously wondering is it really worth bothering with the series anymore.

    It seems judging from the ratings that S8 picks up in the second half, but then it'll be over soon after and I have to wait another year or more until S9 appears.

    Is it worth persevering going through quite a few shit episodes to get to the better stuff? Am wondering if those better rated episodes are still shit as people just dropped their expectations over time.

    Not really, if you didn't like the best of the series then nothing will change your view

    I loved the series until about S6ish.

    Wife and I were debating whether we should keep watching even the terrible stuff, based on where we currently are there are maybe half a dozen duds to come still. S9 seems an improvement though judging from the ratings.

    Oh it is better, sorry I read your post and thought you hadn't enjoyed it.

    I would power through then, the current episodes are pretty interesting.

    Good to hear. Will give it a try.

    Season 8 was terrible in comparison to other seasons. Season 9 has been a return to some form.

    Might try not to binge on it too much then to bridge the gap between now and whenever S9 is released.

    Was 99% sure I'd abandon the series after S7 even but somehow it's proving difficult - I suppose that carrot in the form of more positive reviews of future episodes is working its magic.

    I just realised that Beta is Opie from Sons of Anarchy.

    Sons spoiler:Maybe it's the same universe and it's not actually a mask!

    Yeah that was one of the best moments they've had for a while. Hope they take it to the whisperers!

    I'm somewhat tempted to start watching again (I stopped at the great "who is Negan going to kill? FIND OUT NEXT SEASON!" cliffhanger), as I've heard that the show is getting better. And I love so many of the characters from the comics, particularly Ezekiel.

    But I think I might skip a season or so, because my tolerance for bullshit - especially bullshit related to Negan - is pretty low.

    So yeah going off reviews this season has been a return to form. Worth getting through the previous season to catch up?

    It was the right move to do a time skip. Though I didn't think so at the start.

    I've only caught the odd episode here and there but last night was enough to lure me back in.

    Would say that Ezekiel is arguably the worst character they've had in the show. Proper, proper shit.

    I might start watching it again if it's getting better and if Negan is no longer in it.

    Is it getting better and is Negan no longer in it?

    Negan is still in it, and just as bad (as in crap). He's not got much screen time so far but you get the feeling that the show is building up to make him the main character.

    It's been a pretty poor season.

    ? It's been a pretty good season. It's been absolutely stellar compared to seasons 7 & 8.

    Season 7 was the season I just couldn't carry on with. It rocked my faith in zombies and for that I cannot forgive it.

    If Negan is still in it I think I'll pass until they do the Walking Dead Z Nation crossover. Now that will be a show.

    Negan is very much a side player in this now and his character is nothing like it was in S7. I agree he was annoying as shit after a while originally but for better or worse his character isn't like that now. Obviously spoilers so not going into details.

    It's been a shit show since season 1 so for me each season since has been poor. Being better than 7 or 8 isn't saying much.

    The whisperers are dumb as fuck, what a waste of pump up the volume Samantha Morton
