    I think it's most likely because the show was still in its earlier stages. It also had a much more interesting setting and character dynamics compared to what we have now. Season 7 just feels like it's retreading old ground in so many areas, and fatigue is starting to set in.
    I can't forgive Season 3 for stripping the most interesting elements out of the prison arc, softening and hopelessly muddling the Governor's character, and worst of all, reducing one of the source material's most enduring badasses in Andrea into a helpless waif whose every other line of dialogue seemed to be "THE GOVERNOR ISN'T REALLY A BAD PERSON YOU BIG MEANIES, LET HIM KILL A FEW MORE PEOPLE BEFORE YOU JUDGE HIM." Wasted potential irritates me more than no potential.

    Season 4 was rock-solid, though, for the most part. As were the first few episodes of Season 5, when the threat was the Terminus Hunters, who really ought to have stuck around more for how interesting, sympathetic, and heavily set up they were. And then the show took off on a tangent to a random hospital full of indistinct jerks, and we've been in an only occasionally worthwhile tailspin ever since.

    New trailer released at comic con.

    Sooooo at the end we see "Old Man Rick". Isn't that kind of a bad thing? I mean unless he found some hair dye and decided to gray himself up for no reason, doesn't this just show he survives the upcoming All Out War? Therefore removing the tension of any scene where his life is in danger?

    Could be a dream. Could also be one of those death hallucinations too. I doubt we'd get a time jump that big this season unless they are going to start winding down the series. That part of the trailer was really weird and felt out of place though. If anything it'll create the thought you had and make people feel less invested potentially since that tension may be gone for them.

    I just hope that this season is more enjoyable than last season for me. I honestly think that the all out war arc should've been a part of last season as the pacing was way too slow and awful I thought. There were some good episodes but I thought it was a weak season overall.

    What a bizarre trailer. An overly long montage showing nothing of much note, leading up to a blur of action moments set to weirdly upbeat music for what's supposed to be the climactic turning point of all the show's drama. So... pretty much perfectly befitting the show in general, now that I think about it.

    Negan's drawn-out bit at the start just makes me mourn how Jeffrey Dean Morgan's killer performance is being wasted on a character who only does justice to his comics incarnation in fits and starts.

    On the "Old Man Rick" stinger, Comic Spoilerswell the source material does continue for quite a while after Rick goes all beard-y and cane-y, so I don't think it's necessarily an indication of the show winding to a close soon. However, if they are following through with the time skip and moving into the Whisperers arc, so much of that material has already been used ahead of time with things like the Wolves and the obnoxious Scavengers that it'll probably just feel repetitive and weird.

    It's also a REALLY FREAKIN' WEIRD thing to show in the trailer when they're supposed to be hyping the suspense of All-Out War; I'm still struggling to rationalize them dragging out the March to War arc so long and talking about doing the time-skip mid-season. So help me, if that's the cold open of the season and they want uninformed people to speculate on what leads to Rick's status and leg injury, I'm dropping this show.

    Walking Dead. Wow, I haven't watched any of the episodes since late 2011 when the 2nd season had just been aired. I honestly can't remember a thing about it, so I may have to fire it up after I finish off my Grey's Anatomy series on Netflix.

    Whatever they decide to do this season, they really need to put their foot on the gas and not let up.

    We have entered the All Out War arc. Not only does our group of humans have to fight a war with other humans, they are surrounded by a zombie apocalypse on all sides. Bodies better start dropping like flies.

    This whole "let's kill one, maybe two, major characters a season" needs to stop. Your cast is well over 50 people at this point. If you're going to be a show in an apocalyptic world, you need to act like it.

    All this, coming from a die hard fan who felt like the show could do no wrong for a good 5 years. I've been soured by the past 2 seasons and i'm ready for The Walking Dead to live up to its potential.
