I got bored of Negan. Seems like he has been the baddie for too long and it is played out. Like you said and I agree. If anybody had any balls he would have been dead a long time ago...by his own people. Fear only goes so far when you are the only person that is actually feared...and you don't have some fantasy magic to protect yourself and grant power. Kill him, done, next. I can't see anybody caring enough to take revenge for him. I haven't seen this last season at all yet. Haven't been curious enough to care.
Rick's arc is annoying and old now. Can't figure it out so I stopped trying.
Carl. Blech. Should have died a long time ago.
Morgan. Who I used to like. "Do I kill. Don't I kill. That is my only character point anymore." Turned dumb.
Daryl, our troubled hero. Whatever. Lost his allure.
Michonne, lost a lot of her identity when she started sleeping with Rick.
Carol I liked. Awesome character as she was growing.
Eugene and Abraham were fun. Eugene continues to interest me.
I think most of the characters reached the top of their arc and there is nowhere else to go except sideways. They are all now sitcom characters that don't have much change and have their standard actions. Only thing they could do was go to war because they aren't creative enough to develop another level of change for each of them. They are spent.
this I think is a really intelligent post by the author
Also I would like to add I think bad acting is a real issue, for example the young lad of Ricks (I forgot his name) was bearable in the first couple of seasons, but as his ego and age matured he turned in to quite a terrible actor and I kind of dread his scenes,
Generally I don't like younger people in horror its a total crapshoot for the director and a lot are just terrifying to watch, plenty of older actors are pretty hard to watch, but fortunately most were killed in side plots, which is quite satisfactory.
I find a lot of actors in the show are good, but difficult to watch, they seem uncomfortable with television acting. It makes their scenes and major shows really challenging to watch.
I felt that once the show reached the society point where people were living in houses with electricity, there wasn't much of a real reason to continue, It could have ended there with some kind of narrated monologue about the future of earth. I believe it was season 4 or 5 either would have provided a good end to the show.
Everything you've said is correct, to be honest I've only watched the first episode of each series after series 5 and I can tell its going to be BS so I just skip it. but the points you made are relevant to this new level of BS content. Go to Comment
Oh, nice :)
Perhaps you could PM me a few more ideas for Blue's mods?
Also, love the Lamarckian gemmules. Funny thing is, IRL it's becoming apparent that epigenetic traits can be in fact inherited (nothing like full memories, but the adaptations are still impactful). Go to Comment
I have this notion that the Quebecois are a major pillar of the Atlantic Federation, patriotic as all get out. Western Canada is scattered between Alaska, Cascadia, and the Rocky Mountain Republic, with most just being neutral territory between the Federation and the PacRim Coalition Go to Comment
A small group of men stares intensely at something. Coming nearer, you see puppies, obviously still young, as they are small and only learn to walk. Cute as they are, the men look serious and exchange a comment here and there, making their mother nervous. But one man keeps her somewhat calm, while looking with others on the little ones.
The puppies are a completely new dog breed. The breeder hopes for better characteristics, the other men are mostly hunters and other dog-fanciers, that were called or came from own interest. If all looks well, they will have business. But now, they are just watching.
