I finally caught up with last season, I really liked it. I agree that somewhere in the middle of season 3 the show begin to be really good. So, we are now in the midseason finale, let's see how they continue with the rest of the season.

I didn't understand if John (Morgan's friend) was alive at the end, I guess he could be recovering in the vehicle as the others were by the fire finishing telling the story.

I took it as they did save him and he was just in the vehicle recovering.

I'm still amazed that they killed off Madison.  It's nice to see that the showrunners took Kim Dickens' concerns into consideration and let her go out in a sacrificial way to save her kids. 

I'm looking forward to seeing where the show goes in the back half of the season - they've completed the arc with the Vultures, and likely the majority of the flashback storytelling....so now it's all moving forward.

FTWD at this point is far more compelling than TWD. Better characters, better story being told and better acting.

Sidenote: I stumbled upon a live music clip on facebook with a singer called Rubén Blades...wait a minute I know that face. Googled and hey it's Daniel Salazar which apparently is a huge salsa singer icon in his home country Panama. He even once run for presidency in Panama.  :lol

I love finding random facts like that on people you only know from a character on TV.

Wow, I didn't know that. I searched him on youtube, it's funny to watch him singing and thinking about him as Daniel.

I pretty much liked the season finale.  Overall, it was a great season - I loved having Morgan tie the two shows together, and hearing him talk about his friends and Alexandria in Fear was so neat to hear on a show that is in the same universe, but has always been separated by distance. 

I was truly hoping that they would combine the shows at the end, with the talk of everyone going to Virgina, but that was overruled by creating a new, small community to help others (and vanquish their new villain in the second half of the season).  The main show was always about creating a little hope where none exists, so that was a nice touch....though it will likely fall to pieces next season.   :)

I dug the first half of the season a lot. Pretty strong and was on a good track. Second half of the season was a train wreck and destroyed any of the ground the show had made up with that awesome third season and strong first half.

The ‘crazy lady’ character and storyline for the last 4-5 episodes was atrocious. Horribly written and completely irrelevant. They tried to ruin Morgan’s character with the whole  ‘won’t kill’ anyone and that everyone can be saved in the flagship show and inexplicably carried it over to this show and about ruined him again.

Really disappointed with the finale and direction they took the back half of the season.  Total bore fest and had the same storytelling issues the main show had been suffering from. No coincidence being that Gimple took over the direction of that show as well.

Such a boring ending, would have been interesting to see them go to Virginia and connect the two shows but of course Morgan changed his mind at the last second, stupid tease by the writers. That whole story arc with that crazy lady was so boring.

Overall I found myself more annoyed about everything this season, such a shame when the last season was such a breath of fresh air for the show.  :-\


*Slight spoilers for TWD and me rambling on*
Btw I recently decided to dive into TWD again after a couple of years break. I completly lost interest in the show after S06. Saw S07 and S08, can't watch S09 unfourtunately so i'm avoiding the main thread.
I'm not sure what to say honestly, in the end I actually enjoyed Negan as a character. I just hate how the show always takes 1 step forward and the suddenly 2 steps back, it gets so annoying after a while.
I was so annoyed that Rick never mentioned to anyone about the Heli he saw that later shows up with Negan and that lady, stuff like that really annoys me.
Another thing that bugs me is how little the show explores what actually caused the outbreak, at this point I want something completly diffrent to happen instead of another season of killfest. I'm so tired of them fighting other groups all the time but of course that's probably why they have so many seasons.
I think my main problem with the show is that I simply don't care about any characters in the show either TWD or FTWD anymore and that is a problem when the entire focus of the show(s) is the characters and the people.
