    Rian Johnson must be directing and writing this season.

    It's only two time periods, hardly difficult to follow.

    Don't forget there are flashbacks for some of the new characters as well - episode 5 mostly focuses on John's experiences before meeting up with the rest which adds another time period and we see bits of other characters experiences that would be in the same time period as well (which might technically coincide time wise with the events at the stadium but its still effectively another timeline).

    Yeah. This season has been a bit poor. Especially the last few episodes. Got to the point where they could all die and I would not care. The writing is just so poor.

    This type of show does have a limited span. This (for me) has been better than the walking dead but its hitting the same issues.

    He is. It just seems confusing as they keep changing timelines.

    We will keep watching, but it could be so much better :(

    I believe they brought a load of writers from the main show over - kind of shows IMO with the increased use of cheap character development tricks and spending a lot of time covering or re-covering the same ground over and over and so on - gonna end up killing the show for me same as the main show.

    That explains a lot actually. Re-covering the same ground, that's exactly it.

    Just watched episode 8 - so we don't actually see Madison's fate and we get to endure another 10 odd minutes of people talking into the camera (not counting the other parts of the episode)... can they just fire the writers from TWD and get on with some actual story telling/character development than cheap, boring, tricks.

    EDIT: The next episode when its back again better be spectacular or I'm done - though a season break at this point really isn't doing the show any favours either.

    LoL you have been saying that in almost every thread you posted. If its that bad why continue to watch it if it irritates you that much?

    TWD I said that and then stopped watching it - I've not watched the finale of 7 or any of season 8. This one I gave up on season two but season three people were more positive so I gave it another chance - if the next episode is poor I won't continue with it.

    Not sure if anyone else watching but Mixed feelings about this season. Still enjoying it with some good parts but...

    Aaron standford's character was pointless.

    I've found it pretty flat/dreary - not offensive enough to stop watching it - they seem to have avoided anything too stupid or too much talking to the camera in the second half but not interesting enough to really grab me either though I actually thought episode 15 was alright. They've actually boiled it down to a fairly interesting cast now but I doubt they will do anything with the potential. That crazy women has outstayed anything interesting but I suspect will heavily dominate going forward for a bit :( I hope they don't do a whole season around her like with Negan.

    Without reading too much of the trhread to avoid spoilers should season 4 be avoided then? I've quite enjoyed the first 3 seasons compared to recent TWD seasons.
