Is anybody else on here a fan of this show ?
Its just finished its 7th Series/Season and apparently its still got some mileage left in it yet according to the comic books (which the tv storylines are following very closely).
Just like in the wrestling world, you need a good 'heel' to make things work alongside the 'faces', and the Negan character has been ace at that this series.

Big fan of this show but it’s run it’s course.

The last couple of seasons have very blatantly dragged the story out to prolong the life of the show which has resulted in it becoming very dull at times. You just feel like you are waiting for something to happen and it takes forever to happen.

The walkers are now very much in the background and it has evolved into more of a apocalypse type scenario with humans at war to survive just with the added distraction of walkers.

Negan is a great character but he’s not in it enough to keep it interesting. I would hope they don’t run it any longer than series 10 and even that will be hard going.

Ever since the introduction of Negan, the show has royally sucked.  It's dragged ass, done foolish things that make no sense, and it shows that the comic writers don't want to stray too far from their source (typically, the things they do that is unique are the things done well - see: The Lab and Terminus).

It's also obvious that TWD is one of those shows that moves so slowly when someone posts a YouTube video of every character close-up, and it's total gets to somewhere near 10 hours.

It just seems like very lazy story-telling and very lazy producing.  The actors are doing their job well, but they don't control the content around them.  Sadly, I've lost a lot of interest in this show.  I also think this arc fell at a time in my country where we REALLY need entertainment to be not so relatable and a fun experience.  When our "leader" is the way he is, we don't really want to see 12 episodes of a tyrannical leader just beating down our suddenly stupid heroes.  "Suddenly stupid heroes" = a character who spends 12 episodes saying he is going to kill someone...only to get the guy in his cross-hairs and....talk to him?!  The fuck?

I really know I'm watching a show sometimes here...when most shows draw you into their universe.
