So much this. Everyone keeps telling me to watch it, but from what everyone tells me, its ppl fighting ppl, which is what turned me off from "zombie" games like The Last of Us. I don't care about ppl fighting ppl and ppl vs ppl drama; I wanna see some zombie killing action. But I do occasionally keep up with plots superficially just to keep up with pop culture and memes. And from how they're handling things with Rick's exit, on the surface, this reeks of how OUAT died towards the end of it's run. Spoiler: spoilers Both shows had the main character who started it all leave (Morrison and Lincoln), both does a time skip to reset things and bring in new characters and groups, which is just rehashing old plots with a new skin, and both show runners claim the time jump reset will set up the franchise for another big multi-season arc that will match the success of seasons past, since they'll be rehashing storylines in new skins. OUAT died shortly after that happened, and I see the same happening to TWD.
