Agree with most of this tbf season 4 and 5 were okay as well, it was 6&7 where it struggled and you are right it seemed to be Scott Gimple being the show runner that saw the drop in quality.Good start to the final season, I've probably said it earlier in the thread but the decline was around the time Gimple was the show runner (before the Negan storyline) and for many it never recovered. Throughout seasons 4 to 8 the show writers struggled and if you recall it almost become a weekly feature of a Character facing death but then somehow surviving. Season 8 it was often remarked about how many times they could have ended the war with the saviours by taking Negan out, but deciding to shoot out windows instead. Season 9 ,and 10 have imo matched the earlier standards set, but have not been able to match the standout episodes of earlier seasons. Fear The Walking Dead has also suffered ups and downs with evidence of story telling being disjointed however Season 6 of that was also fairly decent. As for the movies, never liked the idea , I also feel that the longer it goes, the less interested people would be. I would much prefer they finish Rick's story in the TV show.
This is why firestick and cinemahd is needed mate . Save from this kind of shithouseryJust found this out. The bastards! After all this time, have to subscribe to another streaming service to finish it off. 10 seasons (most of them difficult) of loyalty and now this!
Wait!!!! What??? Pete's dead?That's the problem with the spinoff being announced, without that you could easily believe/hope that Carol's going to wander off and do something stupid so we get a proper character dying in an episode rather than 'Hi I'm Pete, you haven't seen me before so I'm definitely being killed'
