    Last series ruined it for me. Will watch it when I get round to it. Hope the Star Trek people are fucking gone.

    not bad opening episode. but funny how they had negan in sight but couldn't use the sniper riffle to take him out

    the priest once again making another fucking daft decision

    I hope we don't see the trash yard people for a while. Terribly written characters.

    No, donkyboy has a point. Big fuss made and immensely detailed plan, erm, planned to simply kill Negan...which they have so much opportunity to actually do but then inexplicably don't.

    There were certainly some dumb moments which relied on characters doing silly things.. but it's a zombie show, not Shakespeare.

    It had some Shakey in it

    All good TV and film has to behave according to its own truth and world, and I think this show has lost some of that since the end of Season 6. Not that it's not enjoyable but it could be much better.

    When the zombies are the least menacing thing about it then it’s not really a zombie show anymore, they’re little more than window dressing now.

    Did I miss something but why/how was Negan outside at the end, I thought he ran back inside with the others once the shooting started.

    Pretty poor for a 100th episode and season opener.

    its a zombie soap, this was even acknowledged by one of the creators in the comic before the last ones letters section in reference to romeros comments about it. used to look forward to new eps but its gone a bit shit now really

    The Octagon Stop...Hammertime

    I really tried, as the episode was going on, to make sense of their 'plan' and thought they were being clever.

    Turns out nope, just incredibly poor writing in both scene and dialogue.

    Also - they appear to have forgotten Negan has an RPG (or two), what was the plan if he just whipped that out and said "fuck it"?

    Where were the crack shot snipers / bowmen who took out all the guards from what appeared to be further away and trickier positions? They wait for a chance, Negan and his lieutenants' heads go pop, job done.

    And what the fuck was Dwight supposed to do? Why didn't he just shoot them all in the back and wave Rick and the Gang in?

    Maddening to watch.

    TWD was never a "zombie show". The zombies are merely a McGuffin.

    electroplated off minehead

    Might well have missed something obvious but I was a bit confused right at the end of ep2, it seemed like Rick & co's plan was working out more or less and then it ended leaving me wondering if in fact it was majorly flawed ?!

    donkyboy Crazy cat man

    Well the guns weren't there so something isn't right. Also find it bizarre fans making a big deal about some i dont give a shit don't even remember him, character from season 1 coming back.

    I'm sure that bullets where like gold dust before, and they must have shot off about 39,4993,089 rounds in one show.

    Utterly terrible episode. Writing - what there was of it - was shit. Plot - again, what little they bothered to include - was confusing. No tension, no peril, nothing.
