And finally 'the Walking Dead' comes to an end
11 seasons, so many endless episodes of zombies and finally the series of 'the Walking Dead' comes to an end. With hardly anyone in there from the beginning of the series (spoiler alert follwing from here, but you all knew this all along already), the produces finally found the time to wrap it up and come to an ending that serves everyone for a little bit.
It took me forever to start watching 'the Walking Dead' actually, because I don't really have a lot of love for horror and zombie stuff. This is the same reason why it took me forever to start watching 'Game of Thrones'as well actually.
But once I started and I realized there was so much more than just the zombies, but mostly the psychology of how the humand were interacting with each other. That is when I started to get interested.
I think I only started watching when season 8 was airing and since there a a crap ton of episodes in every season, it took me a couple of years to also catch up. Because for me watching 'the Walking Dead' isn't something that I always did with full interest. Some season were a lot better than others, and also the story lines kept getting thinner and thinner.
The concept of that you would lose a main character every now and then that was something that kept it all good.
But especially the season when Rick started missing that was acutally super boring, and also the season when it was all about Neegan, that was just a bit too grimm. I think the swing of the bat taking out of one the main character stuck with me for a couple of days, and that is not what I like series to be. It is still entertainment for free time you know.
But it is time to wrap it up for the writers and it is good that they are doing that now. Only an x amount of something should be enough, especially if the story isn't bringing anything anymore. Yes, some new cities, yes some new villages and new people, but nothing shocking enough anymore to really get to the characters again.
I have referred to my time in a disaster area often as that a scene looked like 'the Walking Dead'. People going for their win and survival and losing the bigger picture from sight. Swarming up, just looking for the big strike, no order. That is what happens when anarchy and survival takes over.
I thought apart from the entertainment angle 'the Walking Dead' brought me a lot more. Deep down I feel this is what the world would look like when it would all go to shit.
No zombies, just us. Luckily it is just a series at its ending.
Even though I never watched it, I'm glad that it finally ended... The first seasons were really appreciated
The first couple of seasons were fresh and nice and exciting, but that seems like a long time ago already when that was. Nevertheless..I wanted to see how it all ended haha
I got to season 9, I loved it at the beginning, I'll have to go back to find out its end after so long, thanks for letting me know that it's over
Season 9 was already a far end then, the you can pour out the last two season as well, although Im not sure it will bring you so much haha
i made a bad decision and started watching it right away. first few seasons were something new in the tv series and writing was decent. then after a while they started to be really lazy in writing and a lot of the episodes were just "fuck they can't be this stupid" and "they did this only to try and move the plot along". so there was a lot of multitasking watching the episodes.
last few seasons had few decent episodes then a lot of blah.
and they didn't really finished it, as there is 3-4 spinoffs with the characters. and for some reason i will probably watch it :)
Exactly the first couple of season were intriguing and I liked the characters and the depth of them. Later on also the characters were in-depth and indeed a lot of these episodes were just time filling and nothing special for the bigger picture.
Same here, I think I did a lot of other stuff while I had the series playing, but on the other hand when new episodes came..I did want to watch them hahaa.
But spinoffs?? I never understood this at all, same as with GOT...why...
i understand spinoffs from both perspectives. for the makers it is an easy thing as they already have a base of viewers to start with. and i kinda don't mind them if there is a good story to tell. GOT spinoff was probably one of better things out this year.
for walking dead i think they will continue with this lazy writing. one of the problems is that after 11 years and those veteran characters every time they try to make zombies a threat i just roll my eyes :D
i don't mind multiple stories when you have an interesting universe, enjoyed every fallout game (till the weird multiplayer one) because of the world and stories around it.
Is that ending worth watching? 🤔 I still need to see half a series hahaha 🥺
That really depends on what you find worth it is at the moment hahaha. For real, Im not sure what to advice you in this one haha
This series was the first I saw and is one of my favorites despite the many downs I had, however I left it abandoned in season 10 because I failed to connect with it as in past seasons, but I think there will come a time that I will see what is missing and I will give an end to a series that meant a lot to me. Very good post, Cheers!
