It wasn't as terrible as the rest of the season, but I'm honestly just glad it's over.
Once again for 2 episodes in a row an entire episode is wasted on a useless subplot only for the last few minutes to matter. I'm so glad there's only one episode left of this shit. Making Troy the big plot of the half season would be like if the original show brought back Terminus in the end as the big bad wolves.
Jesus just wrap it up already. Overly scripted waste of time. And people said Morgan was the problem. This show is a joke with no punchline.
The best growth of any character in the entire story, period. Amazing. As sad as it is he was destined to be alone, he always did have glorious purpose.
It was very weird to be eating spaghetti while watching this episode. But wow, mindblown.
I feel like the people going really far to defend this episode, insulting people who didn't like it, are really missing the point. This wasn't the worst thing to ever play on HBO, but as far as series finale's go? It was very, very poor. It was like an epilogue the show never needed. The ending of season 5 felt like a series finale, and probably should've been. This felt inconclusive and contained subplots that just didn't matter. You can argue so did a lot of the rest of the show, sure, but this was a series finale, not a filler episode, so this is why a lot of people didn't like it.
So Carol definately said Rick came back right?
This was the end of Adam's story? Having now watched the entire series I'm left thoroughly disappointed that this was the direction they went with him in the end.
Looks like they watched the last of us and thought let's kinda do this but with Daryl in France! And honestly? It's the best shit they've put out in years.
I got 2 episodes into this season before I really lost all interest in the show entirely. It's not structured well, and the storytelling is going in an order that removes suspense. I get they wanted their "Big actors" involved from the start so that's why we're seeing their adult stories, but storytellingwise it was a bad choice because you already know how everything turns out, and it's not very interesting. I'm out, there's just better things to watch.
What a terrible few episodes, and WTF? They hid an entire engagement? Why? Why am I only in the last few minutes of this season learning this person even exists? Horrible ending, made me want to stop watching this show all together, what else aren't they showing us or more importantly how selective is what they're showing us to paint the narrative they want us to see?
Unlike seemingly most others, I'm not disappointed by the end or the reveal at all. This seemed like a realistic, understandable explanation to each of the episodes before it, and really did a good job of answering most of the questions the series had asked. Totally didn't see who it was coming, which I expected to disappoint me, but it didn't at all.
I died laughing when My Immortal started playing.
You've got a solid storyline finally with Carrie and Aiden going, and yet a whole third if not more of the screentime here is given to Charlotte worrying she's 5 lbs. overweight. Also, watching Carrie try to reassure Seema felt a little sickening, she was clearly just being a hater, which isn't unrealistic. There's always that one friend that just wants you to be as miserable as they are.
This show felt more like, "This is a story we need to tell to be able to tell these next few stories", and less like "This is a story you really want to see." I understand the need to bridge stories, but this could've been executed a number of better ways, even just in the form of one of those "special presentations" would've worked better. This dragged on, then ran completely out of steam in the last few episodes. It felt under-budgeted, the cast came across very tired looking, and overall what could've been an awesome show really came out looking like a steaming pile of shit.
While the ending made me smile at points, and in the end, and while it was cool watching that battle and seeing the powers from heroes being used, I still feel slightly... Empty? Like we sacrificed a lot in this show to get to so little resolution. We don't even know how long Rhody was a skrull, just that apparently he's having trouble walking again like after Civil War. So was fake Rhody mourning Tony when he died or not??? Add in another unlikable president to the mix. I dunno... It wasnt terrible, I mean shit some of the last few marvel shows really showed how low it can go, but I guess I just expected a lot more here.
Like others have stated... I'm not sure what the take-away is here. Like yay good prevails? But why? Because God was on their side? That's a lot of build up for an anticlimactic God's got your back story.
This sucks. I'm as tired as Hershel is of seeing Maggie seek revenge, and cartoony villains you know won't ever get past 2 seasons. Now we've got to endure another season of this possibly but probably not resolving. I went into this skeptical but open minded, I leave this feeling like I stepped in the same shit I did with seasons 9-11 of the walking dead. I really wish I had better taste, or more good shows to watch, because damn I'm tired of settling for bullshit like this.
I know the popular thing to do on Trakt, and in all reviews, is whine whine whine, complain oh how stupid and awful, cry about how something ended so stupid, so this won't get as many likes, because I personally think this show ended pretty bad ass, Jack nailed a killer speech, and I'm glad they went with 6 episodes instead of trying to stretch it into 8 by adding some dumb subplots that didn't need to be there. Great job showrunners, this was as good as this show could've ended!
Maggie... how after all this time are you so damn stupid? Drop your pride, where is that second gas mask? Oh, and that's also the most horrifying walker in 12 years, wtf.
Edit: Also, anyone else think that bit about the hero being no good off screen and the ending being all that matters is an ironic analogy to the shitty way the main show ended up?
I can't believe that's the end of Talos. Even if it makes sense writing wise, it just feels like a waste.
Look... it's a stupid show that half of us watch because the actors are hot and the story STARTED out semi decent. I think we're all well past thinking this was going to be anything but Indiana Jones meets Aladdin meets Clueless.
Weakest episode yet, by far. Yeah a lot of action happened, but at the same time no real progression was made. Negan showed the flaw in being a better person, and we had an entire episode of watching walkers eat people and get their brains smashed in. Woohoo. I want more from the last 2 episodes.
The shit I watch for my wife... Replace men checking out a high school girl in that scene the way the moms checked out that boy and getting all giddy over a DILF list and just like that... This show would be cancelled.
How is Rhodey so consistently on the wrong side about everything after everything he's seen?
Or is he really Rhodey...?
Most of Walking Dead's best episodes were usually the one that really just took a character or two and focused only on them. The format of this show would've worked better for them years ago, because this show's been more entertaining than Walking Dead was those last several years, and instead of turning this into 13 episodes of crawling this story along while simultaneously showing us whatever the fuck Magna, Jerry, and Eugene are fucking up to, I'd much rather just watch the story progress quicker and more focused this way.
64%? What do people expect from movies these days? This was a sad, tragic, beautiful, awful experience of a movie that actually made you feel something. If that's not what you want in a movie, go watch some star wars or marvel crap that'll make you feel better, but if you can't appreciate what this is, you're an asshole.
Imagine being a writer for a moment, one people love and praise, but being trapped in a box that the people who love your work create. Imagine in the beginning you thriving in that box, people loving you more and more, but eventually you've explored everything in the box. Now suddenly people drag you down, "why is he telling stories outside the box?" This is why season 6 took 4 years, because none of these episodes were bad, but because 3 of the 5 weren't inside the box all this hate gets written. Time to move on people, something is indeed better than nothing, and the more you complain about the theme, the closer you get to black mirror straight out ending and red mirror taking it's place, because all good writers eventually learn how to silence the haters and write with their heart, not with a gun to their head.
Having only seen the first 3 episodes, my guess is this will be the best this season offers. I was super excited this show was coming back, the first though was alright, the second was totally off theme. A better ending to this one though is homeboy replacing the other guy and not telling the wife.
You ever watched a dumpster burn just because it was the most entertaining thing in your life at the moment.....? This.
