Wait, What Happened To "The Walking Dead"?

Negan this, Negan that. Negan, Negan, Negan, Negan.

As you probably know, The Walking Dead premiered in 2010. It's about the world after a zombie apocalypse. Everyone was into it.


The show quickly became a huge hit, and had millions of viewers around the world. I, like many, considered myself a part of the fandom.

But then... something happened. The spell wore off. Zombie night just wasn't what it used to be. I was more like Rick Grimes in this GIF when the show came on.


What was happening to me? I felt like I was drifting through each episode like some kind of, well, zombie. Had I become the Andrea of my own life?


It's just become so predictable. My washing machine cycles have more variety than The Walking Dead now.


Boring episode, boring episode, boring episode, semi non-boring episode, boring episode, badass episode. That's it. See you next season. Repeat.

The walkers stopped being scary or a threat in any way.


I mean, I get it. They've been killing them for seven years. They're probably experts at it by now. But remember when they use to be scary? Remember when the threat of walkers actually meant something?


And speaking of characters, how do they expect us to have the energy to care about so many of them?


They add like 40 new characters every season! Even if I wanted to, I couldn't possible get attached to so many of them. And then they want me to care when they kill them all off over the next two seasons? Fine! Better than watching Rosita pout for another 10 episodes.
