Fans of The Walking Dead can also watch new episodes of Talking Dead immediately following the primetime broadcast on FX each week.

1.30pm Monday, February 13 on FX.


  1. Hopefully The Walking Dead will come to an end soon, the living dead genre with all it’s sometimes gratuitous extreme stylised graphic violence and ridiculous unbelievable plot has been done to death in recent years.

  2. I gave up on TWD after the S7 opener. Used to love this show and wouldn’t miss an episode, but I’m done with it now. For the last couple of seasons, it’s become increasingly depressing, excessively gory and the fact the storylines seem to be going absolutely nowhere has meant the only reason to watch TWD now is to see how the characters (many of whom are so one-dimensional I can’t be bothered learning their names anymore) are going to die rather than how they survive 🙁

  3. There was a time I wouldn’t miss an episode, but after struggling through the last season this season has now lost me. ‘Negan’ reminds me too much of the ‘Governor’ and while I understand the producers want the show to go on for as long as possible, I just feel it’s going around in circles somewhat.

    The show has some of the best characters I’ve ever seen on TV and some really good script writing, but the overall story arc just doesn’t seem to be going anywhere and I think i’m sick of the constant blood baths too, would love to see a different angle going forward.

    • Yep the first half was a bloody hard slog. The mid-season finale was great though, it proves that TPTB can write multiple storylines into one ep, I can’t stand the single storyline eps, it’s ridiculous that we don’t see the main characters for weeks at a time. Negan has hijacked the show and he’s nowhere near as compelling as Gimple and Kirkman think he is – he’s just annoying. He’s a comical figure IMHO and I wish he’d die in a really stupid fashion, like tripping over.

      • I disagree with your comment that Negan isn’t compelling, I find him quite menacing, but I do acknowledge that may need to pull back on him as he did start to wear a little thin. Dean Morgan is superb as the character though. I don’t mind the single character storylines, but agree that one after the other is stretching the friendship, they need to be spread apart a little more.. I mean, we saw Carol and Morgan twice this season… just twice!
        I am the most optimistic TWD fan, but I do agree with you that the first half was not as good as the previous six seasons imo… which despite its criticisms, I’ve enjoyed immensely…

        • I think I’m in a minority that has loved the first half. I liked the fact that there wasn’t too much action, and we got to focus on some of the characters more. I particularly enjoyed the Tara episode as she is one of my favourites. I like that she seems to have moved up to being a core cast member now. I’m sure we’ll see more of Carol and Morgan in the 2nd half.

    • The single-story episodes about B or C characters need to end. But the season opener and the final 2 episodes were fantastic. The show does suffer when the big 3 of Rick, Daryl and Carol aren’t involved in episodes.
