SPOILERS FOR THE WALKING DEAD & Parental Discretion Advised
Last night, I watched The Walking Dead and I enjoyed it until the ending -- like most fans. Before I start this article; please know that this just one fan's opinion about a show that they love. Also, I know that all shows on television are all about the money. There's no other reason to put out a show from a network's perspective unless it's going to make a profit.
But after the disappointing season 6 finale of The Walking Dead, there's a feeling that I am unable to shake-off; AMC is just doing this for the ratings increase for the season premiere. I'll explain myself, but first; I did enjoy the show until the very ending. I screamed like an angry troller does at an article they don't like.
THAT'S THE SH*T I DON"T LIKE
First, I watched The Talking Dead and I am still very upset with the comments that Scott M. Gimple made regarding the ending to the season finale. I'm paraphrasing, but they went something like this 'It was the end of this story and that character's death will be the start of another story'. Really, because to me it's seems like you don't have sh*t else to tell and you want to milk it out; or that AMC put his balls in a vice-grip and that's the best answer he came up with. I don't blame him, but that comment upset me as you can tell (obviously).
Also, Eugene died at the end. He had his big moment of whatever and now he's dead. But, I wrote a previous article stating that Maggie was going to meet Lucille. I don't even care any more. I'm not going to watch the season premiere. I feel like I've been bamboozled and it feels horrible. I would have accepted this ending, if it was just a regular episode. I understand that and this would have been good storytelling, but not when it's the season finale. They messed with our emotions in the Mid-Season finale and when Glen should have been in some Walkers' guts. I'm finding it hard to even care anymore and it's just how it is; I wish I could explain it better.
This might just be me, but I doubt it. This is the biggest show on television (Does NCIS really count?) and do you remember Jon Snow dying at the end of Game of Thrones? Imagine, if they just pussyfooted around that death. Are the Night's Watch going to kill him, nope -- oh, we'll find out next season (WTF)! I feel like the show thinks I'm a dumbass and will follow them no matter what. There too big and all those commercials for big Hollywood blockbusters is more important than delivering a solid story. Check that out, how much money they made from commercials. I watched this show live and I noticed the plethora of high-profile commercials.
This is just my opinion, but I would love to know how you feel after the disappointing season finale. I was going to release this on Monday, but I thought whatever -- then I watched it again and I'm still pissed. So, thank you for reading and let me know if you're going to watch the season premiere in the fall?
