    By season 7, most series begin to lose steam or lose their identity, but The Walking Dead somehow feels as fresh, thrilling, dramatic, and exciting as it did in its early days, if not more so. The showrunners are pushing the envelope the right way, and they can get away with showing us the most disgusting, disturbing things imaginable because after seven years, frankly, they’ve earned it.

    All in all, not a great episode, but a savage and a useful one.

    It was miserable, and tedious, and made me feel bad. Not in an emotionally compelling way, just in a “I could be watching something of value” way.

    The Walking Dead is a show that people just love to find fault with, its too fast, its too slow, too many zombies, not enough zombies. etcThe Walking Dead is a show that people just love to find fault with, its too fast, its too slow, too many zombies, not enough zombies. etc etc. The show runners can't win and to their credit they ignore the critics and just keep delivering. It's one of the top three shows of the last decade.
    An awesome season so far. Negan is frighteningly brutal and nightmarish. Tremendous performance by Jeffrey Stanton Morgan. The story threads are separated to date but they will interweave and intersect by the finale and hit the nail as TWD always does.
    It has always been a cerebral show on a level that Marvel and co are not. There are philosophical questions addressed on the human condition and characters have a lot of a depth. Some viewers are bored by this which I suppose is understandable.
    Finally the production level is outstanding, script dialogue ,direction, cinematography, the lot. The attention to detail is spectacular and unfortunately goes unnoticed by many.

    A deserving 10 out of 10

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Sad, sad, sad....our favorite Asian is dead, but that's Walking Dead. Brutal, gory, in-your-face as always....i cannot wait to see the vengeance which, when happens, must be of epic measure. The show re-invents itself and that is the reason why we all enjoy it. The dead never posed a real threat, it's the living ! Expand

    Coming from a show that was as stale as week old bread, season 7 both figuratively and literally beat new life into this dying show. After aComing from a show that was as stale as week old bread, season 7 both figuratively and literally beat new life into this dying show. After a lackluster and snooze inducing season 6, I had almost given up hope for an interesting zombie show, but then HE showed up. Jeffery Dean Morgan walked on set and took over, something clicked in the writers and director's head, and they remembered what they had. After feeling like the characters in this show were gods and couldn't die from anything, it became boring and predictable, but the show writers fixed this by putting 2 of the main characters at the mercy of a Barbed Wire- Baseball Bat. It was truly shocking, while the picks were predictable, most thought it would just be the one, not two that get the bat. People complain that the show has become boring talk fests that don't really progress the plot much, but ask yourself, without exposition, what else can this show do? Not much, this isn't Game of Thrones, it can't just throw some nudity on screen to distract you, in a medieval show like that, there is a lot of story you can do because of the setting, but a disadvantage with zombie shows is that, well, there is not much you can do with story, but the walking dead has found ways around this by adding in human villains, and so far it has worked, but in other cases *cough* Gareth *cough* it hasn't really worked. That's not to say the exposition isn't boring per say, extending the conversations is a way to show the characters thinking, lets face it if you were in these situations you probably wouldn't just say a 10 word sentence to explain a situation, so it does add more realism. As for the complaints about the character of Negan, look, he may not be everyone's cup of tea, but Negan is a great villain. He's threatening, he's an **** he's enjoyably irritating. He's truly a threat to our group of gods. He's an unlikable misogynist that needs to die some say, well here is a bit of information you might not have known: That's the point. I am not a big fan of this show, but it is much better now, and I enjoy it again. Expand

    Amazing premier, fantastic performances and of corz shocking enough even for those who have read the comic book as well.

    Amazing premier, fantastic performances and of corz shocking enough even for those who have read the comic book as well.
    BUT the later episodes are such a let down. of corz we get to see how the negan has gained control over rick but the worst thing is that the story is so slow...as well it spends 40min talking about a 5~10 min worth of story.

    The promising premiere of season 7 turned into a slow boring grind with artificial drama the writers make last forever for no good reason.The promising premiere of season 7 turned into a slow boring grind with artificial drama the writers make last forever for no good reason.

    It feels they are trying to somehow project some tension and horror of a dominated cast.
    But what they really do is fail horribly and accelerate the end of what was a pretty good show at one time.

    The villain is a joke. Not so much the actor but his character. Please somebody break his neck, it honestly takes 2 seconds and they had plenty of occasions.

    I think they should just call this tv show "Walking" because that's the only thing they do. If there was an golden globe for longest drawn outI think they should just call this tv show "Walking" because that's the only thing they do. If there was an golden globe for longest drawn out storyline, the walking dead would get it every year. Expand
