twd is one of the lower-tier quality popular shows. Hodor and The Hound would do work on that show.

Come on man, Game of Thrones is best show on television.
post #5196 of 29711
The writing and pace of that show are pretty bad. Check out the show thread about us wishing the show was better.

I watched TWD until a few months ago cause my room mate/friend is a nerd and always has it on (and even he forces himself to watch it). Show takes FOREVER to progress. Season 2 (or whatever the season with the farm house was) was probably the worst season of a "big name" show I've ever seen. The characters are mostly idiots. What suspense is there?

Are you out of your mind? Are you serious man?

 

Rick - badass sheriff. he does whatever he can to protect his son. he went through many trials in his life, including the loss of his wife. this makes his son much more important for him. its pretty much his only reason he has to live. he is strong as ****, has high survival skills, complex leader.

 

daryl - another badass character. he uses a crossbow, he does amazing stuff, like blowing up a tank singlehandedly, killing hundreds of zombies by himself, and a very cool prescence. he seems so invincible. he just never gets hurt

 

glenn - another cool character. hes a guy that everyone can relate to. he, along with rick and daryl, have very high survival skills. hes a nice, likable, simple guy.

 

bob - hes a medical doctor. not much is known about him, but we shall see if his character is great or not.

 

abraham - havent seen much of him, but we shall see. 

 

terminus people - cannibals, what other show have we seen cannibals in? its amazing how the show went from facing just zombies, to zombies AND a rebellious friend (shane), to zombies AND a supposedly good town (woodburry and governor), to CANNIBALS. the show just keeps ading new dynamics and unique storylines. endless potential over here

didnt know that people hated story buildup.. if you want PURE action and nothing else, then go watch an action movie.. 

post #5202 of 29711
I don't hate story buildup. I hate writers creating whole seasons that are set in one place and NOTHING happens except for 1 or 2 episodes per season. Why do we need to watch 4 episodes of Rick hallucinating about Lori? 95% of the show is filler. Waiting 8 episodes to see something significant happen isn't suspense, it's basically a MTV reality show

Doesn't have to be pure action it's iust too many filler eps. Believe me ima fan of the series it's just that they drag the story out too much.

GOT doesn't have action every episode, but it moves the story for most part. The whole governor story could've been done in the season before.

It hurts my soul. I mean there's nothing wrong with liking TWD, but some of these dudes are true believers.

They'll tell you it's on BB's level, complaints are just haters gon hate, and it's always better than it's ever been right when you ask.

When fans counter criticism and say a show is good because of a couple of individual episodes in a +4 season series, it says a lot about the overall quality of the show.

HBO has set the standard so damn high between GoT, The Wire, and Sopranos. Shows that are more or less mediocre become outright terrible in comparison.

laugh.gif @ Comparing TWD to Thrones. The Walking Dead is elementary in every aspect in comparison, and I LOVE TWD.

Let's be real though. From the storyline to the overall quality of the show The Walking Dead loses.laugh.gif

Seriously man, don't let this dude trap you guys. Leave it alone or take that **** to TWD thread.

I told myself I shouldn't reply after I typed out my post, but didn't wanna waste it.laugh.gif
post #5213 of 29711
I didn't realize how bad TWD was until I started watching GoT. There is no comparison. I recommend watching TWD but it can't be compared to thrones

Last time I reply about this because everytime I post it becomes a spectacle for the next few posts.

Please remember I'm posting from a casual viewer's perspective about this show. I don't know each and every character's name so I describe them from how I remember them from the show. I didn't read the book this show was based on, or any of the other stuff fans of this show does to know so much about it... I just watch it when I can on putlocker. I don't go back and revisit seasons or episodes like some do in here to know all that you know about the show and when my girl is watching episodes to catch up I might look or glance at what she's up to.

You guys are acting like these people have simple memorable names like Bob, Susie, Mike, Rick, etc. no they don't... they have those old time names that don't stick on me as easily, but the one's with simple names I do remember like Jamie, Little Finger, Joffey, Ned, Rob Stark, and Jon Stark. And as for the places I don't know or remember any of them besides Winterfall and King Landing and I don't know how time works on this show so I'm not sure how and when things take place I just try to read and learn what I can from you guys.

Another thing is this show isn't like a TWD or BB or some other shows where it is one set of people and/or characters and it follows them throughout the entirety. GoT is all over the place they're constantly adding in new people and killing them off quickly and there are so many different story lines and it jumps all over the place back and forth and sometimes they don't go back to a story line for 2-3 weeks.

I'm asking and discussing the same thing everyone else in the thread is, but I just don't know some of the characters by name so I describe them from how I remember their significance on the show and I get bashed and told I'm mentally retarded and other crap.

If you don't want to reply what I type that's cool you can just scroll on by instead of the next 10-15 posts about trolling, trying to be funny (I said two quirky things one was the red witch lady with the smoke monster vagina from Lost, and they other was King Joffy Joffer) so I don't understand how I'm tying to hard... I'm not trying anything I just added in two quirky jokes because those two things reminded me of those quirky things I said.

I'm trying get better with the names because I'm not trying to mess up you guys beloved thread and beloved show, but not everyone is going to be as knowledgable as some in here because some go beyond the show and read and get into other elements of the show.

I just got into this show because people kept telling me it was worth watching and now since TWD is done until October I wanted start watching something else. I guess the habit of nicknames also came from all the shenanigans of the Draya Michelle thread maybe.

@CmPunk this show is alright I think you should give it a try. I'm a big fan of TWD although many bash it in the TWD thread. Both shows have their cons so don't be led to believe that this show is doesn't have faults and is perfect. Word of advice learn the characters names and their level hp because if not then the elitists will jump on you every chance they get.

I enjoy both TWD and GoT. Can't really compare both tho.


PIW: IMO, I feel like if you've seen 30+ episodes you can get their names right. It's really not that difficult.
post #5217 of 29711
To be nicer about it.. you should know these names a bit better. Sure.. the names aren't Bob or Susie.. but is it THAT much harder to know the name Cersei or Varys? Yeah, they're not normal names, but so what?

Just try to keep the names in mind when you watch a scene. Whenever you see Cersei on screen, just say to yourself "Okay, she's Cersei.." It sounds dumb, but whatever to help you with the names. The location names can be a bit difficult, especially since it's not like they flash the name big on screen whenever you change locations. Just try to keep in mind which characters are in these locations. So whenever you see anything with the Lannisters, you're probably in King's Landing. If you see Jon Snow, you're either at Castle Black or beyond the wall, and so on..
post #5218 of 29711
@CmPunk about two weeks before the current season started I was talking about the show to one of my boys from work. He said no matter how hard he tried, he just couldn't get into the show. He would start watching the first episode and half way into it he would fall asleep. This was on the first season mind you. I told him to stick with it, it gets better. He finally decided to sit down and actually watch it.

He's now caught up to the current episode. He's super into the show now, even talking about reading the books. So to answer you question, yes, it's good.

lol i was the same i saw the first episode like 3 times cuz i kept trying to watch it really late at night and i ended up falling asleep. Now i'm caught up and hooked.

wow son really comparing TWD to GOT??? It is like comparing those weatherman foams to the classic royal foams. mean.gif

Only thing both series got in common is how they like to drag things out. tongue.gif
post #5220 of 29711
The dropoff in quality from Season 1 of TWD to Season 2 is the biggest falloff in the history of TV.

If TWD maintained its Season 1 quality all the way through it would be comparable BB and GOT.

I stopped watching it at the Season 3 break and I don't know if I'll ever finish it.
