It was a tricky decision....they heard the fans revolt when they tried killing Glenn the first time.
But I imagine doing it this way...with it being inline with the comic at least satisfies some.
And I acknowledge it's a tightrope to walk to try to stay true to the comics but at the same time build your own story.
I don't read the comics, so any reference to them I always have to search the internet for.

I wonder if AMC has ever done a survey asking viewers whether they have read the comics or not...what % of the viewers are on each side of that.
that would be interesting to know the demographic. From what I've seen of the comics (I don't read them either) there is nothing in them that actively entices me to read them vs. the show. Like GOT I feel the TV medium has done a much better job at presenting the story than book/comic. I tried to read GOT, but it was just not doing it for me. I think my issue with the comics is I don't like the artwork. Either faction has their die hards. Something tells me there is a slight majority of the viewers are like myself, ones who didn't read the comics. If 'fans' reacted to glenn's death unfavorably previously when they kinda hinted it in the 6th season, those who got all mad about it obviously didn't know he dies in the comics. That to me tells me, tv fans vs. comic fans. They'll get mad at the show not following the comics more than if a certain character is killed or killed in different way, such as Abraham was (from what I gather).

just finished it...good episode.
I stayed out of here so I had nothing spoiled going in.

I kinda figured it would be Abraham...especially after that "second in command" reference.
But the Glenn one caught me completely off guard.
Yep. I'm sure a lot of people were relieved when it turned out to be Abraham, only to be that much more devastated when they found out Glenn got it to. I was.

You had no pre-knowledge of his demise? The internet's worst kept secret for about 2 yrs running was the fact that Glenn dies in the comics. You didn't have to even seek it out to be tipped about that. Now I suppose that even if you did know about his demise in the comics, you could have held out hope that he'll make it in the series since there are already aberrations from the comics to tv. But really, they kinda had to do it. Recall Andrea is still alive in comics but dead in series. Not killing off glenn by Negan would piss off the basement dwellers far too much...

People are bitching that the season premiere was in ill-taste. Saying it was too gory and borderline torture porn.

I didn't have a problem with it.

It's THE WALKING DEAD FFS! What did they expect, Negan to take Rick on a flower picking journey? It needed it because it has to establish that Negan is a psychopath pretty much. What do people want a G rated version?

No. Not a clue.

People are pussies. "My kid saw that, now he's traumatized"... If he's young enough to be traumatized by that, he shouldn't be fucking watching it.

I was like barely 5 yrs old when I saw the first Alien movie (ABC sun nite at the movies, edited for content but they still showed 'it') and I turned out fine and wasn't traumatized by what was depicted. I suppose it could be argued that it's easier to suspend your disbelief since it's SCI-FI vs. something which COULD go on in real life (ala TWD or even some graphic war drama series or movie). Completely right, people are whiny pussies. Next thing you know people would decry WWII movies as being too barbaric...

Second episode was "meh" to me. Introduction of another new character, not sure if he's good or bad but I hope his tiger fuqs shite up eventually.

Ever since Carol's pussed out and won't hurt anyone, I've grown tired of her existence.

I haven't even seen it yet and sounds as if I didn't miss much. It didn't sound anything overly wowing from the synopsis I read. Yeah they need to introduce the new characters and all that, but from what I know of the comics, they are a big part of them and just goes on to supporting the neverending wash/rinse/repeat cycle the comics have hit (cuz if you think the SHOW is getting stale the comics have been there for a long while....(according to some who read it)...

watched it last night.
The new King E character...I mean...really?

Has TWD hit that "jumped the shark" moment? I like the Negan character...but this one seems a bit much.

last night's episode.

Maybe it's just me...but I think if I were Rick...Neagan would be dead by now. After the head bashing I would have gone back to Alexandria and organized every single person there and the moment the Saviors showed up, fight until the last person is dead. Set traps, guerrilla warfare...that kind of stuff.

I know Rick will eventually snap...but no way would I have let them just walk in and take all of the town's guns...not without many of the Saviors dying first.

And Negan's comment at the end..."I just slipped my dick down your throat and you thanked me for it." Still, I think Rick will have to be pulled into fighting back...he won't rebel on his own. Michone will have to start something.
