And so, now that we’ve reach the end of Season 9A, it’s time to evaluate the half season as a whole. Unquestionably this half season is the best run of 8 episodes since......well I can’t actually remember the last half season that had a more than 4 good episodes in it but it’s definitely been a long time. Despite a years long campaign by AMC, Scott Gimple, Greg Nicotero, and almost every long term writer on this show to burn this show to the ground in a fire of its own mediocrity; it seems that Angela Kang was able to pull TWD back from the brink of probable cancellation to a C+ trending to B- show with a few TV movies in the works, which is quite an accomplishment given that it’s lost most of its lead actors. So congratulations Ms. Kang, fuck you Gimple, and I’m still keeping my eye on you AMC because you have an unfortunate tendency to fire showrunners whenever they prove themselves to be competent. I’ll have to decide on how to orient the threads going forward but they will be back in some fashion next half season so see you all again next year!
Well first off I do agree that there should eventually be a discussion about whether people should be building houses in areas with a history of environmental disasters. However, threatening to withhold federal aid immediately after a disaster just because you disagree with “forestry management” is an asshole move and probably counterproductive if your goal is to prevent these things from happening in the future so Trump can go fuck himself as usual. Also not really a good time or place to tell people “well, really, you probably shouldn’t have bought/built your house there in the first place” literally the same week that they’re still grieving over the loss. That’s like telling someone who just lost their dad “well you know if he had just ate better and exercised more he probably wouldn’t have had that heart attack”. That’s maybe a factually accurate thing to say but it’s waaaaaay out of touch with the emotions on the ground right now.
This thread will be a Full Spoilers thread unless I receive feedback requesting otherwise. If you’re not really a fan of this show then you probably don’t really care about leaks and neither do I so fuck it, open season. As mentioned in the other thread please try to keep the super negativity confined to this thread. You can also post positive comments in this thread if you feel like it and I might depending on how good the episode is but do not come in here and complain about the negativity because that’s why I made two threads this time around.
