So, at the urging of a friend, I decided to get back into The Walking Dead and caught up from the mid-season break up to the last episode of the season. I honestly don't know why I thought it'd be a good idea to watch them but I did. And I regret doing so, as its still a pile of shit.
Since writing my complaints on several episodes in one journal posting sounds too much like work to me, I'm just going to underline my misgivings:
1 - Why do they continually insist on trying to keep suicidal people alive? If they want to die then they can't be saved. Stop fucking around with lost causes and do something useful.
2 - Speaking of doing stuff, something actually happens! They found people! They advanced the plot and it only took them just one episode to do it! I'm impressed. Pity they didn't adopt that successful formula for EVERY EPISODE.
3 - Why does Lori thank Shane for all he did for her? She does know he tried to rape her, right?
4 - Why does Lori get at Andrea for doing guard duty rather then domestic work when Dale and (presumably) T-Dog also do guard duty and no domestic work? What, does their being men make them incapable of taking 10-15 minutes to scrub cutlery? Logic, this show doesn't employ it.
5 - Why does Rick abandon Lori in like 5 seconds when Hershel tells him to, but it takes him like 10 years to figure out what to do with Randall?
6 - Whats with all the character inconsistency in the final episode? They say and do stuff completely out of character. Its like the writers wrote the story for the final episode then tried to jam their characters into as best as possible.
7 - Why do the Cattle suddenly exist on the farm?
8 - Why does a walker struggle to get out of mud until a kid throws stuff at him? Does he just go into hulk mode or something? And a ninja too it seems, seeing as it can magically sneak up on Dale in a field. At night time admittingly, but even Dale should've been able to pick up on a walker approacing.
9 - They should just make T-dog wear a shirt that says "Token Black Guy"
10 - How come the walkers are only just now hearing the gunshots at the farm? They've fired like a bajillion shots yet get no walker, then Carl fires one and suddenly every walkers onto them? WHUT?
Please bring Frank Darabont back. He had actual talent.
