    I'm going to be the debbie downer here and say the finale was crap...big lead up to a major climax, and the phrase "the blood will flow" but then only one insignificant character dies (in the scheme of main characters that is...he was rather important in terms of story)...leading up to the execution of a guy who should have died a few episodes ago.

    I was expecting A LOT more. Blah.
    I disagree. I think it was all set up for two more killings (nicklas and gabriel) of which everyone expected at least one to happen, but to me it was very thoughtful, counterintuitive and yet very much in the spirit of the recent episodes (everything in and around Alexandria) to end in a pretty tame style. I can say for myself that since season 1 I have not enjoyed 4-5 episodes in a row as much as the last ones. No idea how to bridge the time till October (and no, I wont touch the comic books).

    I can understand your point of view...you've never read (or "touched") the comics, so there was no expectation really as to what was coming. I'm in a different boat than you, being quite a ways ahead of the TV show's story because I've read all of the comics. The time line was leading up to something very specific, as was all the marketing hype they were putting out there...and then...nothing really.

    That's the thing about the TV show...it draggggggggs it's feet so badly, and when those of us who have read the comics see certain cues in the story on the show, at least for me, I get amped up...and then I get reminded that the writers in the TV show continue to drag their feet slower than molasses. The comics are rapid fire almost ALL of the time...I wouldn't mind the tv show stepping up the pace a bit myself.

    I mean this is a bit of a spoiler (nothing major) but the "wolves" they're introducing are a group in the comic book that were almost irrelevant and were VERY short lived. They're going to end up spending half a season on these guys, and that is really where my negative opinions always start with this show...they skimp on big time pieces of the story and get WAY too invested in stuff that was really not that big of a deal.

    Again, I understand your point of view...you're a different kind of viewer, so there's no expectation when you're watching the show. I can see how these last few episodes would really be great to someone who had no expectation or knowledge of what was coming...unfortunately since this is a comic book based tv show, a lot of us are on the other side of the fence.

    yeah, I get that. Personally I like the fact it didn't end in a massive cliff hanger for example, but I see why readers of it would find it too slow paced.
    I'm hoping for you guys that the spin off delivers, and who knows, perhaps season 6 will pick up some speed again.

    I'm excited about the spin off for the simple fact that I have no idea what it's all about and it will all be fresh and new to me! It's a blessing and a curse to know the comic story.

    If that's not an April fools joke, I will never watch the show again.

    Very obvious april fools joke, lol!

    There is, however, strong rumors that Jon Hamm (plays the lead in Mad Men) is being heavily considered for the role. I would not mind that at all...he was excellent in Mad Men, and he actually looks pretty close to the part if they can rough him up a bit from his cool clean look from his other character.

    I got home from Easter dinner with the family, sat down on the couch, and then was like...there's nothing on TV. Mad Men is so boring, I don't understand what people like about that show. Good thing Game of Thrones starts next week. I miss TWD already.

    Mad Men is a period piece...and I think a lot of people like it because of the time frame which it takes place (the attitudes, the clothes, the environments, etc). I don't care for it, just like I don't care for Halt and Catch Fire (the show my wife is currently working on actually), but I can see why people are attracted to it.

    It's a show that can go on for 12 years if it wanted to. Other than being a period piece it's more like a "life goes on" sort of show. For example, if you watch a show where some guy sees this girl at a restaurant that he wanted to talk to but didn't, later on during that show or series he'd miraculously find her again. In Mad Men you never see that girl again in your life.

    Ironically I find Game of Thrones one of the most boring shows I've ever tried to sit and watch. I really, really, REALLY wanted to like it but I was so bored to death with the first three shows I watched that I figured it wasn't worth my time.

    Different strokes...

    I've been avoiding this thread like a zombie.
    Finally caught up with TWD. Had to binge last two episodes of season 3 all of 4 all of 5. Got the whole series on my Direct TV DVR which I'm about to lose. Got to switch to Verizon Fios next week.
    I think TWD is one of the best shows derived from other source material. I binged the comics right after the Season 1 Premiere. I left off on the comic right after Season 1 Premiere. I'm somewhere on issue 110 with the comics.

    Tonights episode was probably one of the best in a LONG time!

    This show puts "Fear" to shame...even on the slow episodes.
