Well the official season 8 trailer for the walking dead has been released.
And I hope you have your $#!*%n pants on!

The first episode of Season 8 will mark the 100th episode in the series.
To commemorate this mile stone, I'm sure we can expect this episode to be a big one...hopefully not as traumatic as season 7s premiere where we lost 2 of our own.
But a change of tide and a big score for our home team.

Myself, I have been counting down the days till the season 8 premiere.
A good portion of the break between seasons last year was spent on trying to figure out who Negans victim was going to be...boy was I shocked when it turned out to be 2 victims.

If TWD is going to up last seasons premiere and mark the 100th episode...we can expect something huge...something monumental.

For your viewing pleasure here is the 5:20 minute trailer for season 8



Notice aged Rick with his cane at the very end?
If your familiar with the comics you will recognize the time jump of Old man Rick.

I can't wait! I find the harsh criticism of this show confusing.

I've loved it from the start, and it has never let me down.

It's pretty simple: a blockbuster premier, followed by a dozen episodes of conversation, capped off with a cliffhanger finale.

Again, I love it all.

Maybe it's just not for some people?

Anything Hollywood beats to death over and over has a political agenda. This 'walking dead' meme is about turning us against one another. The whole world is full of zombies that want to rip your flesh... don't trust anyone that doesn't seem 'right' , individuals that expresses opinions that go against the main stream... they are the zombies, kill on sight.

Six of one, half dozen of another. You don't get people with the opinion I have, and I don't get the "superfans" of the show.

For me, it's just the repetitiveness of the seasons. I watch the premier, get excited, then get progressively more bored, then get excited for the finale. At this point it's really more about seeing the beginning and ends of it than any real enjoyment of the whole season. For me, I mean.

You know what they say about opinions & a-holes, right?

Meh,

That's a weekend in Chicago.

I miss it being about Zombies and surviving them. This is just Human vs Human violence nonsense.

I actually find their conversations and the depiction of the survival situation, their thoughts, dilemmas, and challenges much more interesting than a bunch of CGI effects and explosives.

And I love the characters and how they develop.

For those who are looking for a full action-packed show, that ain't the one. Though when it does come to action, it delivers.

You should read the comics then. I watched a few episodes of the show, but decided to stick with the comics until it is over. Then I'll watch the series.

Also, didn't Kirkman leave the series for creative differences early on?...

Maybe you just don't get how much of a threat humans with no rules can be?

Not the first time I've gotten that suggestion.

What's really curious about my take on the whole TWD "meta" is that I really enjoy the TellTale games, and I really enjoy that show that comes on after each TWD episode. Talking Dead or whatever it is?

This season is supposed to be a very a fast paced one - as war is.
I recently read an interview saying that this season is set to break everyone of our group.
In one form or another, they will be broken and tested to their limits.

I know this is basically the same rhetoric that we hear every season, but the way the last 2 seasons have been - introducing a lot of new characters, building those characters up and developing them on screen for us.
So we can see the pieces being put in place for something major to happen.
Since The first season, everything has been leading up to this.
At the end of season 8 we will close off everything in TWD world.

Season 9 will be a fresh slate for our characters and the introduction of a new enemy.
An enemy that none of our group has ever come across before or even thought possible: The Whisperers.
In fact there has been rumours that the Whisperers may make a cameo like appearance at some point in season 8, but no one will recognize them until they are formally introduced.

I wonder if the show will take a turn from the comics in that Rick decides to actually kill Negan as he has been promising through their entire relationship.
Rather than what Rick decides in the comics when he takes Negan prisoner.
I know this will create a different story arc for the Whisperers.

Myself, I hope they keep true to the comic story line and keep Negan around.
It's pretty entertaining when Negan and Rick Join forces in the comics and become quite the team together.
However, it sucks seeing Rick becoming even more handicapped in which he permanently needs his cane due to an injury he obtains during the "All out War" story.

Keeping Rick as the bad ass, take no crap, character he is now, is what I would like to see the show continue with.

I heard about the after show, but never saw it... haha But the comic? You really should try it. It is fast paced and is hard to put down. Really.

The kids LOVED the game, and they haven't read the comics nor watched the show, lol.

If they off Negan before the Whisperers, it would not be the same. I think Negan's character is going to have more airwave time for a while. In the comics his character is developing a lot during that time.

I bet he will become Rick's Arm of Justice before long, despite Rick's hate of the man.

Have any of you guys been watching the spin off Fear The Walking Dead? Its at its mid-point in season 3, and I'll have to say its been pretty damn good. Was slow in season 1, but I feel like they took a bit of a creative detour with FTWD, and I find it to be more enjoyable that the original sometimes.

What say you?

A lot of people and critics got bored this past season after Episode 1. The showrunners dropped the ball last season. Compared to GOT, this past season of TWD sucked.

I watched season 1 waiting and hoping for it to become something amazing.
Before long I was only watching the show to be disappointed.
Season 2 came on. I watched the first 3 episodes and just lost all interest in it.
I tried going back and watching season 2.
I just couldn't force myself to watch it anymore.
The whole Mexico, voodoo thing. Just can't do it.
And I love TWD, so I figured for sure I could love FTW. But nope.
However season 3 sort of piqued my interest when I heard Travis was dead...or at it seems.
So I watched the first 2 episodes of season 3. But still just can't get into it.

That's very true.
In the first couple of seasons, it was all about gathering survivors, taking anyone in so there would be more people.
Then we watched the zombie threat sort of die off as humans became the greatest threat.
Now, every group still alive knows, you don't trust anyone or else you'll get killed.

Looking forward to what chaos ensues, but I must admit, the continued Gratuitous violence towards other Humans, is getting a little grating.

I understand the genre, recently departed George Romero (RIP) started it all in 1969 with "NOTLD".

BUT, its the continual Killing of "Normal" people that is a problem.

Not an episode goes by where my family doesnt say, "Boy oh boy why do they kill so many people, its too much" etc etc.

Im sorry USAanians, but it is a direct result of your mindset since....forever.

It explains the 30,000+ gun deaths per year, the invasion of other countries, etc etc......you guys just love to kill.

With over 50 years of TV and Movie viewing up my sleeve, you guys take the cake for shoot to kill, by a long shot.

Of course, being from Oz, its just not in our societal makeup.....other than American influence, from your TV/Movies toons etc.

With our cop shows, the cops rarely even use a gun.

Is it any wonder, with the violence you portray, that other countries and nationalities and peoples are very wary of the USA and its intentions?

I know many of you have asked why the World hates the USA....well, we dont HATE you, you are our brothers and cousins, But dont you think we should have a degree of concern of your motives, when you portray such Anti Human traits in your Pop Culture, especially to each other, not to mention "Foreigners"....in this day and age?

I'd love to see an episode of TWD, where no normal human gets killed....now that would be a treat.
