Loved it. It wasn't as, like, surprise-y as you'd expect from a finale on a show like that, but I really enjoyed it. You?


I was sort of "meh" about it. I wasn't really that impressed with this season very much, though. I thought there were a lot of story lines that didn't really go anywhere or sort of started and then just went away without being talked about again. I guess I prefer more twisty-turny sort of plot stuff.

I know that they replaced show runner Glenn Mazzara after a few episodes were done, so that probably has a lot to do with how things panned out. I was kind of disappointed in the finale, probably because the storyline really hasn't gone anywhere. Starting out next season, we could be right back to the governor vs. the people in the prison, which was pretty much where things were at after the second episode. That, and we have to wait until the end of October for the new season.


See, *SPOILER ALERT* ...




I was glad they didn't kill off the Governor yet, because that felt like it was where things were going. It would have been too obvious. I also thought it was going to be obvious that Andrea would escape. No dice. I like things like that, when our expectations are violated (in a positive, productive way).

My main problem: why would the take the Woodbury people back to the prison? Why not just move into Woodbury? They've got electricity and shit.


***WALKING DEAD SPOILERS***






The one thing that I do enjoy about TWD is that they obviously have no qualms about killing off main characters. I was expecting Maggie or Glenn to die in the finale because of their little wedding ceremony thing a couple weeks ago. I'm sorta glad Andrea is dead, I didn't really feel any kind of connection to her and she pretty much brought what happened to her onto herself.

It's a show I won't watch and is based on a temporarily over-worked idea (zombies and super-natural creatures in general). BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Meh, maybe I am just over-Kyle-ing the show.

If it was just a show about zombies eating people, you might have a point. TWD is more about the survivors, and the ways they deal with life after society collapses. I don't have to go out on a limb to say that some of the human behavior on the show and in the comics make zombies look fairly tame. Leave your preconceived notions at the door and give it a chance Joe, I think you'll enjoy it.

You're missing out, bro. This is not the normal run-of-the-mill zombie show. There is great character development, and I couldn't say it better than Jeff just did - it really is about the survivors.

Lost was more than just some random time-travelling people stuck on an island, it was about the BLAH BLAH BLAH. (Yes, I am trolling you, it's actually quite fun)

Anyone else think the Game of Thrones season opener was meh-ish? Or did I miss enough of season 2 that I am lost right now?

I hate that you say that as well...

I think GoT was a "set-up" episode and, based on the show's history, episode 2 should be AH-MAH-ZING.

And the best guitarist of all time is easily Garcia. Or Duane Allman.


Duane Allman was as good as anyone who ever picked up a guitar.

Also, I abandoned GoT after book 3. Thousands of pages, and I don't feel like Martin knows where it's going... and that his fat ass will die from a massive coronary before finishing it.

Don't read it even when you finish, because it's riddled with book spoilers.

Thanks for your warning on Twitter. It saved me, because I knew to just scroll past everything Doc wrote.

The show differs so much from the books that I'm not so sure it matters... but I skipped that post too, just to be safe.

That's why I don't read. Ruins the movie.
