I have been a fan of The Walking Dead since the beginning. Rick Grimes is my dude, and Carl is my boy. When the show first began, I was hooked hard and couldn’t wait for each episode. There have been a few very disturbing scenes as well as lackluster screen writing along the way, but ultimately, I have remained loyal to the show up until recently.
During the whole Glenn debacle, I have honestly felt a little stung by the franchise that they would treat their fans that way, but they always find a way to drag me back. Since the entire gory scene in the woods, Negan has really come into his role as the new big bad even with some not so villainy lines, and he has become the sole reason I have come back to the show following this mid-season break.
Seriously, though, these writers are not doing this series any favors right now. Did you hear some of the lines in the subject episode? CORNY! Rick gets back to Alexandria, and he and Sasha exchange like three words that are the epitome of cheesy acting. I don’t fault the actors though because I know what they are capable of, but the writings is taking a turn for the worse.
I just hope Negan sticks around long enough to carry the show for a little while. For an older than me gentleman, he is very attractive even with his cocky, domineering attitude. He is really hitting his role for me as of recently, but maybe I am just trying to fill the hole Daryl has left due to their lack of designated time to the beautiful Norman Reedus. Sigh.
