The Walking Dead opens the ninth season with a new showrunner, Angela Kang, an equally new opening song, the output Damocles sword of Rick Grimes scene, competition in his own spin-off TWD Fear and a deluge of prejudices.
With great difficulty we arrived at the final of this eighth season of The Walking Dead, a final round which the hype was not great either, that partly has not complied with the high expectations, but overall it could have been much worse.
While avoiding spoilers like a minefield, Sunday night – direct cause of Wrestlemania – I glimpsed on social commentary to the episode of The Walking Dead during the American airing. Enthusiastic. On the one hand I thought that as usual they put the turbo before the finale, on the other, I decided to take it with a grain of salt. In hindsight, and despite positive ratings are not missed, I was right to not flatter myself.
Directly or indirectly, in this episode all face grief, near or far it's over time. An episode traveling slow, Maybe the pace will not ever take, but in the last 20 minutes we awaken from ropes torpor and touches from initial annoyance.
Maybe we put more effort in trying to please us the episodes, that the authors to make them interesting and credible. Of events that could make this a good episode, worth remembering the first seasons, There were two: the battle with the Saviors led by Simon and the zombie attack. Unfortunately both develop between nonsense continues and ends leaving a bad taste in my mouth.
I had concluded the previous post in the hope that this episode was not just a Flash in the dark. I'm afraid so: This episode is slow, boring, repetitive and focused on characters of which there is never interested or that they've lost any appeal. All of whom last week were absent and whose was absolutely felt the lack.
Honor. This is the title of the Mid-Season premiere of The Walking Dead and it was easy to understand who and what she meant after the surprising and disappointing twist of Mid-Season finale that much controversy aroused during break.
For the first time I have not watched The Walking Dead during the airing of 21. And not because I couldn't miss the final of GFVip (the sooner the 21,45 There was no hope began), but because it was easy to guess that would have been the umpteenth episode boring. I was wrong and the opening led by Ilary Blasi was the right rewards.
This episode is a competition to see who takes the worst decision, at the end it's hard to decide who to give the not coveted. Surely no one removes the writers, responsible for everything we're seeing with immense effort in weeks (not to say for months). We jump from one place to another for 40 minutes without anything happening to relevant, no step forward, on the contrary, If you do not turn on themselves, It is much more likely to jump back.
