    I’ve been happy with the season. I was thinking lastnight they should have Daryl come up from behind and put a bolt in his head and voila. Dead ... done. Bye morales.

    My only complaint is Jesus wanting to take prisoners. Seems out of character and way off the path of the mission but at least Morgan and Tara are not ok with. Overall I think it has been well paced and has kept me interested.

    I agree. Looks like the King's luck is coming to an end. That's what you get when you walk out in the open during a war, before clearing the buildings.
    The show has had enough twists to keep me interested and wondering.
    The martial arts battle between Jesus and Morgan I saw coming. The taking prisoners thing will come back to bite them I am afraid, but predictable.
    Why did all those guys go back to Hilltop when they could have been going to back up the other groups?

    It’s been OK... at least the last one was fast paced and kept moving. The war with the Saviors was stretched to long in the books and I guess they’ll do the same thing on TV. The books and the TV show was better when they were nomads struggling to survive. Since setting down roots in Alexandria it hasn’t been the same. If the war with Negan turns out to be a bust next big challenge will b the Whispers. Kirkman plans for the book to end at issue #300. Soon the show will out pace the books like GOT and we may see something different then the books. I still watch it every Sunday night but my expectations are not has high as it has been in seasons pass. Like the book the show has to many characters to care about. Do we really care who dies as long as it’s not a member of the core group we have watched for the last seven years. Probably not.... I guess canon fodder is a good thing.

    I like your take @Electgumbo
    Who knows what direction it will go after a while. It was announced that there will be a crossover show with Fear The Walking Dead. I am guessing that wasn't done in the books, or was it?

    Yeah. His little speech of "We have to live with them in peace after it's over." Well, if you kill them for what they've done, most of them plenty willingly it seems, then no. No, you don't have to...........

    We are around 150 something in the books so we are a little over half way. They killed Glen in issue #100. So they are catching up fast. I still think it will be Carl all grown up telling the story of his Dad at the end.

    I can see that happening as well. Usually around season 10 shows start losing their interest. This show however has a different following that could carry it farther. Maybe even more spinoff shows. The main actors however may fall off here and there as it goes along.

    The last scene in episode 3 reminded me of one of the scenes from the comics. I recognized the water tower/silo with the ladder.

    Can't say I've been keeping up with the show given how God awful last season was. I'm disappointed with the writing and how long this Negen story line has been going on. At this point Fear the Walking Dead is proving to be the better show...and I can't wait until the next season returns...

    My wife loves the show.
    I'm driven half crazy by the characters total lack of field tactics and the fact no one apparently needs sights on their AR platform. Arrgghhh!!
