    What a crock of ****. I hope "Into the Badlands" gets ****ing cancelled soon so I never have to hear another word of it. This is even more obnoxious than when AMC was shoving "Low Winter Sun" down our throats during the final season of "Breaking Bad".

    Why do they insist on putting a new show between The Walking Dead and Talking Dead? It ruins the flow of the episode!

    For a Mid-Season filler episode, it was okay. All I can recall from tonights episode was Into The Badlands in my face every few minutes. I think things will pick up with the follow up episode months from now.

    Not a bad mid-season finale. Not too bad of a cliffhanger.

    Though you didn't have to wait too long for the preview.

    EDIT: And guess who just got name dropped.

    Thank God that last scene came during the first commercial break. That one scene was more satisfying than the finale itself. I still hate "Into The Badlands". :o

    Pretty unsatisfying episode. Morgan, Enid, Ricks new girlfriend and her kids can all just go away. I never thought I could not like Morgan but it's happening.


    Sigh...

    At least AMC hadn't taken the Bill Engvall approach in promoting another show while pausing another. That **** still pisses me off seven years on.

    In a perfect world, I wish AMC took in Constantine instead of fecking Kung Fu of the 2010s. Le sigh..... :csad:

    How is it any different than if they do it with Talking Dead? Or Comic Book Men.

    I thought it was a good episode with some very tense moments (particularly during the Carol and Morgan confrontation).

    However I think the writers are drawing what’s left of the quarry walker herd storyline out. I was expecting some closure, but I guess they want to keep us hooked on 6B. I also feel that they are dragging out the fate of the last Wolf. And hoped that would’ve been resolved also. Curious how that Wolf plans on escaping with a hostage in a middle of a walker herd? As well as how he’ll be dealt with? It sucks that Morgan couldn’t rehabilitate him.

    I’m not surprised [BLACKOUT]Deanna[/BLACKOUT] bit the dust.[BLACKOUT]I figured an Alexandrian (or a couple of ’em) wouldn’t live. I figured Rick’s group was safe.[/BLACKOUT]

    Again where the heck is Heath in the middle of all this? As well as Spencer? And what happened to Tobin after Tara and Rosita saved him shortly after the tower fell? He seemed to have disappeared.

    I guess I was wrong about Sasha, Abe , and Daryl saving the day with the fuel tanks and RPGs. Based off the clip for the next episode looks like their return to Alexandria is postponed yet again.

    I was hoping Glenn would’ve made it over the wall by now, reunite with Maggie with a plan to save the others. He and Enid will probably end up saving Maggie.

    This half of the season (aside from the flashbacks in “First Time Again”) is only two days following the different perspectives of Rick‘s group. Nothing much really happened. Felt mostly like a set up for things to come.

    So they're going to be trying to get through the horde using the guts trick. That's going to be interesting considering Sam is cracking, plus they have Judith with them and she might start crying. Oh man, it's going to be a long wait. I know what to expect, but sheesh!

    If this were a regular episode with no extended break I wouldn't be so pissy about it, but a giant meh.

    Agreed on the meh. They need to grow some balls again and start killing off rick's people again.

    So much hate and complaining over Into the Badlands... you really want a meaningless and already spoiled teaser so bad you have to badmouth another show just because it dares to air and slightly delay it?

    This episode and most of this first half of the season have been a huge waste of time. All this could have been done in less than half the episodes. Maybe even 3 episodes but they dragged it out like they do everything else and now I'm realizing just how uneventful TWD can make 10 hours of television about zombies be boring. What's worse is only 8 episodes have aired but I know this drag-it-out crap is going to go on at least another two or three episodes.

    That little turd (Ron) actually tried it. I hope he and his little brother, who chose a bad time to be crying for mommy, get the flower treatment.

    "Just look at the flowers."


    Way to go Morgan. :facepalm: Your policy ironically will get someone killed.

    lol @ the hate for another series because it delays a preview.

    Morgan does feel like such a disappointment. That method of thinking has its place in modern civilization but TWD is not about that. Part of my growing dislike of this season is the unrealistic steps Morgan must take to keep his pacifist lifestyle intact.

    He can't kill but he doesn't take any real steps to prevent those who are killing from continuing to do so. And it doesn't mean Carol killing that Wolf. It means stopping the Wolves from killing more innocent people.

    At some point he has to adjust to the new reality, get eaten by a zombie or move onto his own place because Rick won't abide it in his Ricktatorship.

    The kids are annoying too but you can't really kill them off as easily as a whiny adult without stepping over a line. For the briefest of moments I thought they were going to with Judith but they merely walked up to it with Deanna and waved before walking away from it. Though I do get the feeling she (and Gabriel) may not make it to the season finale.

    I don't mind kids on a show. Carl, for all his past and occasional present faults, has grown into a tolerable teenager. I can't say I care for Enid or Sam or Ron.

    Along with The Strain I have noticed writers love to make most children whiny, unbearable and annoying. As if they think this is just how kids are. At times that is true but they don't all have to be cookie cutter stereotypical moody teenagers with nothing better to do than piss off the other characters and the audience.

    Once Upon A Time manages to not make Henry unbearable either and I'm sure there are other shows which has a kid who doesn't make you think they would be better off somewhere not stinking up the screen.
