    I think it is safe to say this show jumped the shark a little while ago. It is still entertaining, but not a great show anymore.

    The opening speeches the rally the troops was so cheesy it was cringe-worthy. I nearly shut it off. However Rick’s plan and how they executed it was pretty cool. I enjoyed that.

    Then they try to claim Maggie is still on the first trimester and Judith is now 4-5 yrs old?!?!?!?!? Poor writing to say the least.

    Who didn’t predict that Gregory would double cross Gabe? Stupid writing. Then Gabe ends up in a trailer with Negan. Um why didn’t Gabe shoot him and end the war? Bad writing all he way around.

    I also can’t determine if Negan is just a horrible character or while Morgan has just played him horribly.

    I will admit the season has a ton of promise.

    For what it is, a TV show its fine. And it lasted the zombie craze to. FEAR though, just sucks. I mean, you got this blond chick and her daughter who just jump in every place and take over. I mean, in a world without law this just wouldn't happen. I'm thinking that's why the crossover.

    I stopped watching FWD when they just took in Ofelia and allowed her to poison them so easily. Too predictable and stupid.

    It is better than Walking Dead right now.

    At least John Proctor is a competent villain.

    The shows were written by kooky liberals for kooky liberals.

    They don't understand that chivalry would be one of the first things to go in that type of environment.

    Daniel Salazar is the only reason to watch that show.

    They weren't saying that Judith is now 4-5. That was just Rick's imagining of a better future.

    The speeches at the beginning were pretty bad. Very contrived.

    Gabriel is still the kind of naive character who has faith in the goodness of other people, at least compared to the others.

    What bothered me most is that the last season was basically a build-up to this battle between Rick's group and the Saviors, and then it was shoved so quickly into this first episode. It seemed to me as though the writers wanted to get it out of the way as quickly as possible.

    I don’t think so. FTWD doesn’t have one likable character or someone to root for. TWD has Daryl, Carol, Rick, Morgan, Jesus and the King.

    Salazar is the character I loathe the most. Great actor, but horrible character.

    I think Madison is fairly likeable. Salazar has his moments as well. FTWD is still very much the weaker show, but it has improved, while TWD has been on the decline. Eventually, they might even out. :p
