    Which is probably why they kept bending over backwards to have him not die, which grew more and more ridiculous every time it happened. See also: Sylar from Heroes, although that show was unwatchable except as unintentional comedy after just the first season for more reasons than just that.

    Andrew Lincoln says '27 people die' in Walking Dead season finale | Blastr

    Well, personally I am more excited about Game of Thrones, but will TWD finale suck outright or be good enough to make us all forgive the sins of this season and look forward to the next one?

    So not a bad finale for TWD. The main takeaway? AMC has killed everyone of Darabont's personal team. Well played AMC ...pricks ...

    Very good episode, especially all the tension with scientist guy and Andrea. Good thing she didn't need those six seconds she burned when she twice took a few moments to watch the body to see if it had turned yet.

    Carl was totally right to end that guy. He was inching forward on Carl and not putting the gun down. If we're supposed to think that Carl has an itchy trigger finger and is losing his humanity, they should not have had the guy inching forward. I love that the gun Carl has makes him look more like a psycho.

    Big minus, of course, was the Governor surviving. Ridiculous, just like his lieutenants being so on board they didn't gun him down from behind as he was murdering everyone.

    I have to assume that something will happen early next season to get the group on the road again, because managing a settlement may make sense, but it would lack excitement.

    Points to Michonne for decapitating to zombies with one slash.

    Great episode last night. Did not expect to see what the Gov'nr did.

    So do we know if Mazzara butting heads with AMC and leaving as show runner had to do with the major character offing? Or was it that AMC didn't like where things were going? Or will we ever know?

    I am in agreement with Roenick that the show...and the season was one tremendous waste. SPOILERS deserved to die, when a guy is telling you to hurry up because he is turning zombie...you don't choose that time to reflect and pontificate...UNLESS YOU ARE USING YOUR MONKEY FEET TO WORK THEM DAMNED PLYERS!!!! Knew Milton was a goner, Dallas Roberts signed with another show a few weeks ago, but I figured he would be a one and done anyway. Why they went back to the prison instead of taking over the better defensible and provisioned Woodbury is beyond me. As is the Governor's full descent into stoopid madness. He isn't even calculating or rational any more. Why you would take your entire fighting force into the tombs of the prison is completely beyond me. As is the prisonees short sightedness to actually close the trap and have everyone all fish in a barrel. But nothing this show does is geared towards airtight writing. Tyrese and his sister are useless, Andrea was killed, not by Milton, but by bad writing that left no other option. None of the deaths had any dramatic weight. All in all...who cares. So. What now? Does the Governor go all Trashcan Man searching the desert for a nuclear facility to bring back the finger of doom. Or is he gonna go all Colonel Kurtz and reinvent Woodbury as some death cult?

    Who cares. Between the constant re-running of the episodes, the lousy diminishing returns writing, this show is no longer the event it once was. It now reminds me of Land of the Lost, or the really bad Planet of the Apes tv show, where there was one event to accomplish and the show just kept spinning wheels putting off the inevitable.

    And future drinking game, whenever rick is talking to someone, and he looks downward contemplating the weight of his every single word and the world on his shoulders...everyone DRINKS. At least it will make this show fun.

    There's the crux of it. The first season there was always the danger of having to immediately get going or get gone. The past two seasons have spent too much time in one area. There was never a sense of dread or worry. Just that, at a certain point you knew there would be some zombies or bad guys showing up. Further, to build build build, and then give two minutes of a "payoff" is pretty weak. They should have had the governor go off the rails five episodes ago so that, when they finally came to the prison, you knew what he was capable of doing. Up until he did what he did in this past episode, he just came off as a macho guy who got a little power hungry and missed his family.

    Also, this show misses Shane something fierce.
