901 - A New Beginning

Seems weird the guys aren't covering it.

I think the show sucks but I'm still going to watch it.

    Full disclosure...I gave up after about 10 minutes.  Watching the Texans/Cowboys.

    I'll watch it later.  

    Fuller disclosure...if the guys were doing a podcast, I'd be watching it now.  Makes me realize it was more like a job so I could enjoy the BM 'cast.

    Gregory being alive and well is infuriating.

    Full disclosure I’m watching Cowboys Texans too. I forgot to cancel my AMC premiere so we watched it last night but I don’t remember much. It was meh as you’d imagine.

    I'm not an axman or whatever, but the position of that ax on rick's belt is, well, fucking ridiculous.

  • Was it just me, or was it kinda...  boring?

    I actually ffwd through a good chunk of it. Don't season premieres usually have a bit more excitement?

  • At least they finally killed Gregaory after giving him chances and him costing lives. It was about the only real positive thing I remember from the episode.

    Brett Butler plays a great redneck.

    Full disclosure, I was on the edge of my seat when they were trying to get the wagon across the glass floor.  And I totally thought Ezekiel would be bitten.

  • The Variety recap lol. What a crock of shit

    >Angela Kang came in with a bang in her first outing as the showrunner for “The Walking Dead.”

    >The Season 9 premiere was an impressive mix of action, horror, comedy, and genuine emotion, hearkening back to some of the best episodes in the show’s history.

  • It wasn’t great but I did like that they gave the characters dialog and they put some effort towards showing some of the challenges of a post apocalyptic world. The making corn fuel was excellent and using horses instead of everyone driving everywhere. It was dumb that the horses couldn’t pull the wagon out of the mud but the people could though. Also why don’t they just move those people out of the sanctuary and split them up between the other communities. They can’t support themselves in that location obviously.

  • Ehh ok...ok...  I see some signs of improvement. I’ll take it.

  • I quite liked it - The tone, style, dialog and editing seemed different - in a good way.
    It's good to see people talking to each other. And Daryl did more talking than the last two 
    seasons combined.

  • It was a fine episode. Better than we have got recently. Also hanging Gregory was a great way to kill him. Not sure why anyone thinks they stuffed that up

    It was the kid thing that pissed me off. Also, Maggie's "I don't want to do this" talk. It's the tiring walking dead "finding jesus" moment that happens every five minutes. There was no need to question whether or not to kill Gregory.
  • @russkelly  I agree but now there’s probably going to be some drama on why it was ok to kill Gregory for attempting to kill someone but not kill Negan when he murdered many, many people.  

    I think that Michonne has the right idea on organizing a sort of constitution.

    That's what THEY would do. And we ain't them! And they ain't us!

    I thought the episode was ok, which is more than I can say for the majority of recent episodes. I too am kind of interested in them tackling the challenges of supporting society in a post apocalyptic world. That's much more interesting to me than another annoying group they have to defeat (although I'm sure that's coming). 
  • MichelleMichelle California
    I actually enjoyed the episode (gasp!  Clutch the pearls!)  I was ready to call some bs when 45 minutes in, we hadn’t heard mention of or seen Maggie’s baby, but then there little Herschel was in all his cuteness.

    I can see the difference in storytelling and direction between Gimple and Angela Kang.  They’ve said the show is returning to the style and feel of the older, first few seasons and it did seem like it to me.  I think I’m all in on the season but we’ll see how it progresses.

    It was almost like "oh, and we're throwing this timewaster out, too! (you're welcome.)"*

    After a few minutes of realizing The Doctor wasn't going to appear (long tv day...) it really felt like I was watching something new. After many a Sunday evening of sheer misery, this was a nice revisit. 

    (Fun Talking Dead, as well.)

    Really missing the podcast.

    (*edit: not calling other now-dead characters 'timewasters;' I meant it as storyline.)

    Thanks :)

    And they’re down to 6.1 million viewers. For the season premier. Down almost 50% from last season’s premier.

    Even if they are beginning to start to maybe correct some of the problems, you can’t just take a dump on your audience for 3+ years, while lecturing them about how they they would see that the steaming pile of shit is really creme brûlée if they’d just look at it the right way, and not expect some consequences.

    They sure saved some money when the gravy train was really rolling though, didn’t they? Aren’t they clever.
