70. "I hate when shows are scared to kill main characters (spoiler below)"
In response to In response to 0


  

          

And the death fake-outs are the fucking worst.
That was when I knew I was done with The Walking Dead. 6 episode death pump fake.
One of the many great things about The Wire and early Game of Thrones was that they didn't protect characters like that.
As soon as season 4 started, I thought, it's getting too hot around Franklin and crew. Somebody, Jerome, Louie, or Leon has to die. Then they do an annoying ass pump-fake. Louie might be my favorite character, but if you're gonna go through the trouble of shooting her (and after Franklin survived his shooting), she should have died.

And then we get the death of 3 antagonists in 1 episode? C'mon. It's too easy for these people.
