#243955 The Walking Dead Season 4 Ep 8 - Too Far Gone - Review

Posted by farswell7 on 02 December 2013 - 03:17 AM

Confused at those saying it was too predictable. Everyone complains that it has deviated too far from the comics, yet the one episode it stays pretty true to the comics people say it's too predictable. :srug:

I should come to the realization that people will always find something to complain about.

GOVERNOR: You watched me murder dozens of people for no reason in cold blood. Do you trust me enough to stay at your camp?

MARTINEZ: Sure!

GOVERNOR: I just murdered your brother. How about being my faithful right- hand man?

MIKE: Okay.

GOVERNOR: (To crowd) People have been disappearing under mysterious circumstances since I've arrived. Whaddaya say to me running the place?

CROWD: Okay.

Prediction for future episode:

GOVERNOR: There's a nearby prison full of battle- hardened, heavily armed individuals that you have no beef with. Whaddaya say we attack them?

CROWD: Okay.

Posted by JesusMonroe on 31 March 2014 - 02:21 AM

This season would have been 100000x better with Andrea, honestly. They could have had so many more storylines with her if she was still in the show. Now I'm waiting 7 months for another season without her where people like Sasha are gonna be prancing around in her weak plot armor to upset and ruin Tyreese with her inevitable death.

I respect your posts but honestly, it's time to move on. The show can't undo Andrea's death and if they did retcon it, it would be worse than when they killed her off in the first place. 

 

Complaining about Season 4 because Andrea isn't in it shouldn't be a criticism because there was no possible chance she would be

#280493 How Many Episodes?

Posted by michaelmyers on 03 April 2014 - 06:43 PM

I'm great with 16, I just wish they had a season opener that was 2 hours and a finale that was 2 hours....without 265 bullshit commercials in each episode as well.

#261576 The Walking Dead Season 4 Ep 9 - After - Review

Posted by Valleyaggie on 10 February 2014 - 03:16 AM

Did Michonne really have character development, though? The writers mostly just added some depth to her character by showing her past (which is a good thing)

You could see her emotion. She was finally actually grieving for her family instead of being all closed off. She retreated to her closed in self when she made her two new pets but then snapped out of it and retaliated. Her joining the group of walkers represented how she was pretty much a zombie herself, emotionally. Then she realizes what she is doing and reacts and kills them all. When she sees Rick and Carl through the window, she has a moment to decide if she wants to go in or just keep walking. She chooses to knock on the door. She chose not to be alone, not to be a living walker. I think that's some pretty darn good character development.

#158704 Real Reason Why Woodbury Storyline Fails.

Posted by Leela on 25 February 2013 - 12:58 PM

It fails because Woodbury doesn't matter.

In the comics, Woodbury wasn't a town. I mean, it was literally, but in the comics Woodbury was just an alliteration for The Governor. Woodbury was that town where the Governor lived and it was NEVER focused on. Woodbury was just the enemy and we never had to deal with any of its stupid residents, save for a few cronies here and there. We saw the Woodbury army attacking the prison twice, we saw the zombie arena, but that was it. There was practically no Woodbury in the comics and that worked, because you always got the feeling the Prison was fighting this mythical enemy. The group never knew what they were up against, they didn't know how big Woodbury was, the people in it. Robert Kirkman keeping Woodbury away in the dark made things so much more exciting, because the audience didn't know what the prison was up against. It was just like, "well, Woodbury could be 10 people, or it could be 100 people, or 1,000 people." We never knew what Woodbury was hiding, and that made it all the more exciting and intriguing.

And it also gave Kirkman a chance to finally TRULY develop ALL the characters and bring them to their true selves.

Woodbury doesn't work on the show because the show has tried to humanize Woodbury and I'm sorry, I don't care about Woodbury's humanization. I don't care about Milton, Karen, Haley, Tom (or whatever the asthma kid's name was). These people are just wasting my time. I feel like the writers just use them as filler. Don't give me Milton if you're not going to develop him and he's just gonna say some lines here and there.

It's kind of ironic that the ONLY Comic Woodbury resident that actually mattered and became important to the prison, Alice, was never introduced to the show. Having Alice would be SO MUCH better than having to deal with the constant stream of Woodbury residents that no one gives a shit about.

Woodbury feels like a cop out, like Mazzara just didn't have enough material for the prison, so he needed to introduce this other universe to fill in the gaps. I can just picture the writer's room:

Writer 1: Oh, shit, guys. Why is Merle at the prison? Why would the prison accept Merle? I feel like we should explore this.
Writer 2: We still have 18 minutes to cover.
Mazzara: Hmmm.... Well, Merle needs to be at the prison because of reasons.
Writer 1: .... Glen, it just doesn't make any sense that--
Mazzara: Just cut to a Woodbury resident.
Writer 3: What?
Writer 2: Who?
Mazzara: That one... with the dark hair.
Writer 1: ... Who are we talking about?
Writer 3: You mean Penny?
Writer 4: Dude, Penny's a walker.
Writer 2: Glen, we killed Haley and we can't give Martinez any humanity because character depth is just not our thing, remember?
Mazzara: Hmm. Okay, easy. Just give Karen some lines.
Writer 1: ...What?
Writer 2: Who the fuck is Karen?
Writer 3: Don't you mean Haley?
Writer 1: No, we just killed Haley.
Writer 4: Who the fuck is Haley? We have a character named Haley?
Mazzara: Just give some lines to Karen.
Writer 2: Glen... who's Karen?
Mazzara: She's in Woodbury, okay? She's just like... a girl in Woodbury. Do I have to do all the thinking?
Writer 1: ...
Writer 2: ...
Writer 3: ...
Writer 4: ...Glen, can you just explain what it is you want us to do?
Mazzara: LOL look guys. I got a rubber pencil going on here.

#178801 Andrea Finale

Posted by Leela on 01 April 2013 - 02:25 AM

It’s not even that she died. It’s the way she died. No redemption, no attempt at giving her a proper death. Let’s just have fucking zombie MILTON bite her and that's it. Then give her some fucking bullshit lines and have her kill herself.

They treated her like shit all season, and then this is what we get in the end? Merle gets to die a hero, but Andrea, one of the pillars of the Walking Dead, gets treated like a freaking piece of meat in the end.

I’m so fucking LIVID.

 Also how did they not get shot. They stood their and you could see the shots everywhere but where they were.
 

It was not the intention of the gunmen to kill Rick, Daryl, Carl, and Michonne. They were firing around them in order to lead them toward the train cart where the other prisoners were being held captive. It's a parallel to the snare trap that Rick was teaching Carl about earlier in the episode. Force the prey in one direction so they have no where else to run.

#265915 Rick Killed And Did Not Profit

Posted by Creeper on 24 February 2014 - 05:30 AM

I think there is too much risk involved with getting in a tangle with an obviously dangerous group.  Any one of them could have been shot, so he left instead. 

 

And he did profit by killing that guy - he got a gun, and most importantly he escaped with his life and was able to warn Michonne/Carl. Sounds like a 'win' to me.

#126090 The Subject Of Rape - Please Read Immediately!

Posted by xaviersaint on 25 November 2012 - 08:20 PM

As many of you have all ready seen, we have had several guesses, predictions, comic-based conjectures that we may see the subject of rape being broached by the show.

I am asking everyone to keep that talk classy, upscale and not act like little juvenile horn dogs with bullshit of "Haha I'd let <insert character> rape me all day long" comments. It's not a joking subject. Don't turn these threads or discussions into that. It's one thing to say "I support the Governor's decision to have Maggie with no shirt." but another to go into details of how they could film the scene or how they could make it so it could be pleasurable to watch.

I and the rest of the forum staff have all ready warned and temporarily suspended posting privileges of those idiots and if they return and continue to be idiots, my boot will show them the door out the forum. And rest assured, that same boot will gladly show you the same door they went out if you decide to act like them.

We must be respectful of everyone here. And I've all ready been approached by victims of that crime that post here about what has been posted previously. Please be smarter then a junior high school student when we broach this or any other sensitive subject like that.

Thank you. You may resume your postings.

#272432 The Walking Dead Season 4 Ep 14 - The Grove - Review

Posted by JesusMonroe on 17 March 2014 - 02:02 AM

It’s episodes like these that make me never give up on the series. When people tell me to stop watching and saying that the show can’t get any better than what I’m seeing, this is the kind of episode that redeems everything the season has done at this point. Every once in a while, the show delivers an absolute knock-out episode like this one
 
This episode was simply fantastic. Not every scene was absolutely necessary or as good as the scenes before or after it, yet they were still necessary. It allowed us to grow attached to the characters and feel as isolated as they were. This episode had enough content to perfectly justify the length and the end of it capped off everything perfectly, resolving two major plot lines of the season
 
This episode excellently portrayed the psychological ramifications of the apocalypse and while some might call it nihilistic, that’s the kind of world this is. You can’t make a show about the zombie apocalypse and do a dishonest portrayal. Some people aren’t suited to survive and there’s only so long you can live in an unstable world before you crack. Admittedly, I always thought Tyreese was a flat character but I'm interested in seeing where he and Carol go from here
 
I don’t grade the episodes anymore but if I were, this would absolutely be an A. Without a doubt. Might be the best episode in the series
