When they're not sitting around jerking themselves off thinking they are creating compelling drama by having ridiculously lengthy debates, and they just have shit happen and the story progress, it's a lot more fun. But I don't know if I would've made it through season 2 without the wickedly hilarious Videogum recaps. Check them out. It'll help you keep your sanity.

The action is pretty intense at times and drives the show. When they start taking themselves too seriously is when it fails. Whether or not you keep watching it depends on your expectations of the show. If you're looking for a good drama, don't bother watching any more.

Nothing ever touched the high of those first couple of episodes. It just became annoying characters sitting around, waiting, bitching at one another, and making head-scratching decisions. So many moments where a character stands up and says exactly how they're feeling at length instead of letting us observe how they feel by their behavior. Occasionally a cool zombie moment, but they're rare compared to the bland-to-obnoxious human moments, which are plentiful each hour.

I've watched a couple of eps since, when people have told me, "great moments this week!" and the action is all competent and enjoyably gory, but the writing in between those scenes is still cringe-inducing for me.

I've been told it gets better a number of times by various people, but at this point, the amount of work I'd need to do to get there doesn't seem worth it. Not when there are so many better TV shows and movies out there I could watch instead.

I think even for most of the show's fans (could be wrong here) that it's one of those where now they feel they need to stick it out, just for those occasional great moments, but they realize it's gonna be trying between those moments. Not unlike Dexter is for some, or the last couple of seasons of The Office.

It's the kind of show that usually has 5 minutes of greatness per episode. And when an episode doesn't deliver those 5 minutes, it's pretty much a complete waste of time.

But it's basically a soap opera for dudes so your Young and the Restless comparison isn't too far off.

It's one reason that I'm stunned that more networks haven't done a zombie show. It really shouldn't be hard to match Walking Dead's quality or surpass it. It has its moments but it's pretty average (and often annoying) most of the time. There's almost always at least one character that fans can't stand (and not in a Marcia Gay Harden in The MIst intentional sort of way.)

I dunno what kind of show you guys were looking for, but this is a great horror show.

It's not supposed to be The Wire.

It made boatloads of money, doggie no reason to be
mad

it was dogg doo though

Horrid, in fact

btw re: walking dead

Mad people came in here and supported my sentiment

I thought it was a supposed to be a gripping drama

Looks like its a shitty run of the mill zombie show whose
main attraction is the guts and shit

Good for it, I ain't about to watch that

I be reading books and shit B

FOH. I fully expect the same sort of exchange the next time there's a difference of opinion that wide. Contrary to popular belief, I don't take this shit seriously like that, unless I say some shit to someone that's over a reasonable line of decency. It just wouldn't be the same.

>you're a nice guy
>

LOL, thanks man. I just came up on the whole Stephen King audio bibliography, as well as all the Jack Reacher and Left Behind books and god knows how many books in between. I've just got a wide variety man. I got a metric ton of shit if you ever want to get started. I have The God Delusion and The Case For God, which are great to read back to back. A lot of memoirs, true crime, economic and political joints, all types of shit.

In response to Reply # 28


  

          

it's worth it just to hear P reading these stories in his hard-ass monotone but then also some of the fun facts/stories:

-P's mom being a member of The Crystals (Da Doo Ron Run, And Then He Kissed Me)
-His father having him in the car with the engine running while he robbed a jewelry store
-Prodigy's struggles with bed-wetting at an early age
-P turning down a starring role on Broadway as a child that ended up going to Alfonso Riberio
-Emmanual Lewis coming over to his grandmom's house with his younger/normal-sized brother then showing off his breakdancing skills until P & his friend start pestering him about being Michael Jackson's boytoy
-Havoc accidentally shooting a Def Jam intern in their offices while waiting in the lounge for their meeting with Lyor Cohen then all of them running out of the office with their crew knocking over Run-DMC on the way out the stairs by the exit.

And that's just up to about age 14 so far that I've gotten.

Not to mention the comedic value in hearing Prodigy's literary turns of phrase like 'as we scampered by' or hearing Prodigy actually do other people's voices whenever quoting other people in the book.

His cop voice is worth the price of admission alone.

I've been dying off this shit for a minute, I'm not even halfway thru it but it's a winner.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

how a show can have that much going for it in terms of an interesting network, cast n showrunner and fuck it up so gloriously is something to behold. i stuck it out for s1 but that finale was the last thing i ever saw. not worth the time.

He's never seen from for the next 5 seasons or so, and there are other blacks who dont say jack shit. Then he re-appears and acts the shit out of an episode again then he's gone.

He's like a magical thespian Negroe that pops out of an Oscar with a kufi on it, then vanishes.

Well done

people love the shit out of this show though. i tried to give it a legit shot. whenever i lagged or got bored, everyone just said keep going because it's about to really pop off. i watched part one of the 3rd season, and just realized i'll probably never see why damn near everyone i know thinks it's top notch tv. it has its moments, i guess, but i'm good

Walking Dead was on Heroes status until the third season brought it around a little bit. But even then it was as much annoying as it was entertaining.

I posted largely because I was confused...real spit
I didn't even plan on stopping when I made the post

I have given it up as consequence of this post, I trust
y'alls opinion

But I was just asking a question at first because
the acting was so horrifyingly bad that I thought I
might have been missing something

Turns out I was onto something

it's that rare combination of spectacular television that also happens to be wildly popular. it's easily the most watched and discussed show in PTP. but O_E throws up the hater bat signal, and suddenly everyone's too cool for school.

Lol

Its popular all right

Wish someone could tell me what's good about it

it's easily the most
>watched and discussed show in PTP. but O_E throws up the
>hater bat signal, and suddenly everyone's too cool for
>school.

If I was Longo or someone you'd have a point

People have talked bad about their momma on here just
to disagree with me

I'm easily the most disagreed with poster, probably
in the history of the boards

So if I came with some negativity, that was actually the
cue to come in and defend it...I was honestly looking for
someone to say something good about it, because I've already
wasted like 8 hours of my life...I'd prefer it be good so
that I can feel like those hours went to good use

Cats came in here not mad, listened to my point, gave their
honest take

You came in here mad, though

Good, now that my question been answered I can go back to
doing what I do best, that is, telling you how much you smell
like old hummus

on a good show

Go back to the drawing board, do something different and

You're having sour grapes because somebody thinks your favorite show sucks. Then you got the nerve to pull out the popularity = quality card AS IF that's a foolproof notion.

2 And A Half Men had crazy ratings and I'm pretty sure that's one of the worst sitcoms of the past decade.

That totally makes your point.

And a huge chunk of those replies sound like THEY WANT THE SHOW TO BE BETTER AND IT DOESN'T DELIVER.

It's like you don't get the point of relaying criticism in a public forum.

Your agenda weak as fuck, b.

they exist for shows that people can't stop talking about. don't get mad at me 'cause you can't grasp that simple concept. the fact that PTP's usual suspect low-self-esteem niggas are trying to get popular by hating on something that's popular is irrelevant. walking dead is awesome and you're mad about it. easily the most watched show on cable, easily the most talked about show in PTP. cry.

A lot of it is the writing and pacing of the show, hence them replacing the showrunner.

it's not on Breaking Bad/The Wire/Sopranos level of acting at all, but it gets noticeably better to me.

I'll step out there and say season 3 is largely very solid acting/pacing/story-wise.

the show/storyline gets a lil better and the bad acting becomes less noticeable.

but yeah, this show has become my guilty pleasure because the acting and story lines are *that* corny.

And even I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. It's kinda garbagey. I've never watched a show before in which I root for like 9 out of 10 characters to die every episode. Seriously, they're all terrible people who make terrible decisions and then have terrible conversations about those terrible decisions.

But I've read all the comics and am pretty invested in the world that Kirkman built. I enjoy seeing it play out on TV. And they do come through with a heater every 4 or 5 episodes. On a lazy Sunday night (or more likely Wednesday night when we've already seen everything good on the DVR), me and the girl can sit on the couch with a book, or playing a game on my phone or something and watch Walking Dead out of the corner of our eyes while snarking the shit out of it.

WHERE'S CARL? OH MY GOD, WHERE'S CARL? That shit never gets old to me. And at this point I can't stop until I've seen Andrea's I-just-smelled-a-fart-smirk get chewed off by a zombie.

The four seasonwide posts (linked above) contain a HUGE chunk of people talking about how much they want the show to be better but they watch it again and again and again because there's a decent episode in there sometimes.

IkeMoses specifically said that the only character he likes is "crossbow dude": A character that wasn't even in the graphic novel. He was created for the show. You don't see much fandom for Dale or Rick or Andrea.

Of that whole cast, ONE character is likable for a majority of the series? Even the Governor seemed to be a bit middling at one point but David Morrissey seems to be doing a LOT with his character, which might be a testament to his talent rather than the writing staff.

Every one of those posts contain criticism of every kind. It's a shitty show that shouldn't be shitty.

That's why it's popular here.

which is no different than any other show discussed here

That's Ike, not everyone feels the same way
in fact I know quite a few fans for each character

I don't agree with him carrying the character, he has been given a lot more to do than people ever considered to begin with and he's turned into something different altogether

it's a far from shitty show, it's just not what everybody wants all the time and that's not something I give a fuck about

Actually it's quite different. The only other two shows that I can think of that get the "Come the fuck on" treatment here are Dexter and True Blood. Again two other shows that would be better if they didn't' make their plots so illogical and characters so goddamn unlikable.

Breaking Bad, Boardwalk, Burn Notice and Luther don't get such a heightened critical reaction in their posts because those are actually good shows.

TWD is based on a comic, they're suuposed to be illogical if you think about them outside of the worlds they were created in
and saying 'nobody's likable' is an untrue blanket statement; Dale, Herschel, Carol, Maggie, Morgan...come on now
everything about that show works fine in the world Hickman created


>Breaking Bad, Boardwalk, Burn Notice and Luther don't get such

all of those shows have a lot of ridiculous shit happening in them, which is weird you say thatbecause they're more rooted in reality/real world shit than TWD so I'd think that sort of thing would be kept to a minimum
but I like all those shows listed, especially Boardwalk

The comic isn't illogical in the context of the characters created. And they were even likable even if you hate their guts because they had a clear, reasonable motive when you consider their personal histories. The TV show is nothing but. They manufacture drama where it isn't needed, stretch out boring plotlines with pointless dialogue about pointless actions that they do and they seem to mess up every storyline that isn't plucked and massaged from the books.

They have ridiculous shit happening in them but they work in the context of the universe that is set up for you.

Example: The Wolverine 2 flick hinged on being able to pass DNA from one mutant to the other. Yeah it's a movie about a mutant with an indestructible skeleton and lizard woman. But we KNOW how DNA works. It can't be passed down. This is something that they threw in to create drama and a sense of danger on Wolvie's part.

That's lazy writing and it insults the intelligence of the audience even if the audience doesn't know they're being insulted.

TWD does that because they know people will tune in because DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA at any illogical cost. Then occasionally there will be a point where somebody comes up missing and maybe a really tense part shows up where a zombie appears.

It's lackluster.

79. "I like the acting, but liking or disliking acting is subjective opinion"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

How do you objectively gauge acting ability? It's not like lighting or sound, where either you can see (or hear) what's happening in a scene or not. Whether someone convinces you that they are "expressing" real emotion that someone would feel in a given situation or not is wholly subjective. Even still, I'd be hard pressed to understand how, for example, someone could watch the episode where Rick runs into Morgan again and say that Rick or Morgan were "acting badly" in their scenes together.

Could someone point out an actual scene where they felt the acting was bad, so we can debate specifics?

you're right, the acting is top-notch, often stunning. there are some weak links in the main cast, as with any show, but overall it's one of the strongest on television. but you may as well save that discussion for the season four post, 'cause this post here has nothing to do with walking dead and everything to do with niggas not getting enough hugs as children.
