Re: Walking Dead chat *CONTAINS SPOILERS*

@Lindzi @Thom77 Watched 10 minutes of Watchmen, gave up! Clearly not a fair test but don’t really have the time for a lot of TV at the mo so if I didn’t grab me straight away I was happy to let it go ... maybe give it a go when it’s a Boxset. I’ve got Britannia S2 starting this week so that will keep me happy, and I’d definitely recommend giving His Dark Materials on BBC1 a try if you haven’t already.

 

Shiny new dragon-sized thread definitely in the works for next year!

Re: Walking Dead chat *CONTAINS SPOILERS*

@Lindzi @Thom77 So good right? Sooo good! Really good!!! Am I right???

 

You know Negan is going to have bantz with Beta and he doesn’t disappoint, he’s on 10/10 form! We’ve missed swagger-Negan, right?!? I admire Beta’s self-restraint in not staking him to a tree! And how slippery-slidy-yes-sir-no-sir-three-bags-full-sir was he with Alpha! Saying all the right things in all the wrong ways, he’s a little tinker isn’t he!! She’s definitely got her hands full now, and already half the whisperers look like their ready to run away and be Negan-worshippers!

 

The only thing I can’t decide is where Negan wants to go with this ... help the ‘good guys’ get their revenge and safety, or just set up his own little Saviours Mk 2 in some quiet corner of the world? 

 

Great scenes with Carol and Daryl as well - the old ‘I know what you’re up to’ and ‘I know you know what I’m up to’ relationship they do so well!

 

Finally, poor Eugene - I think we can safely say he’s not talking to some nice little lady in a flowery dress knitting shawls for village orphans is he? Thank goodness there’s no Internet, he’d get himself into all sorts of trouble!! Can’t wait to see how that ones going to pan out!!!

Yes, good to see Negan on top form and I'm fairly sure he's working on the side of good????  The whole Negan, Alpha and Beta stuff is great.

 

Poor Eugene and the Midnight Caller routine..... Isn't going to end we'll.

Ah I missed this Negan! He's got his swag back and I love it!

 

Beta is not happy with him AT ALL is he, and a bit harsh killing the whisperer that gave him some bacon, but you can't keep Negan down....he was always going to get out of that walker scrum 😆

 

No idea what Negan is up to and where is going with all this but that's kinda what I like about him. Can't wait until the Lydia is alive bomb to drop though.

 

Old school Daryl and Carol adventures were perfect! Mmm who is this lady chatting up Eugene? Always suspicious of random voices coming through a radio....epescially when she told him not to tell anyone and it is just between the two of them... she's a catfish surely 🤔

Re: Walking Dead chat *CONTAINS SPOILERS*

@Lindzi @Thom77 Haha exactly, has he never watched any horror films pre-apocalypse? Clearly he missed Play Misty For Me and When A Stranger Calls!! .... helicopter people maybe (I always think helicopter people whenever strangers appear) ... any clues on Talking Dead about who it was?

 

Yes Beta is definitely feeling the pressure now, looks like Alpha’s getting annoyed with him as well - she doesn’t like anybody disagreeing does she? I wonder if Negan’s getting a promotion sooner than he thinks!!!

@Andy   @Thom77 

 

No clues on Talking Dead about who she is, apart from she is important to the story....so we'll find out eventually.

 

They talked about another TWD spin off show, so it's happening the 50 year Walking Dead franchise, I just want the helicopter people story to be honest! Who are they!? And I would like this to be told on Fox not AMC please.

 

Carl Grimes is a guest next week, surely he'll announce his world tour as his music career has really taken off hasn't it! 🙄

Re: Walking Dead chat *CONTAINS SPOILERS*

@Lindzi @Thom77 Carl Grimes?!? Blimey! Please tell me Rick didn’t have a love child that turns out to look exactly like Carl, and whatshisface is going to be the leading character in this new spin off? 😱 To be fair the spin-off does sound quite interesting, I might be able to get into it more than I did with FTWD. Might have to tune into next weeks Talking just to see if it’s car-crash TV!

 

By the way, did we see Gamma this ep? I didn’t spot her, but I’m sure there’s going to be some interesting scenes with her and Negan coming up - Negan is bound to spot an opportunity there to drive a wedge between Alpha and Beta and spring his plan into action ....

The spin off is about a community that has lived behind walls so have been sheltered from everything but they have some kind of weapon. I don't know, it sounds a bit dull but obviously I'll watch it 😄

 

I have no idea if we saw Gamma or not this episode, I haven't worked out who is wearing what dead face mask yet apart from Beta and Alpha. She's a weak link though and with her tasked with also getting friendly with Aaron she may be the downfall of the Whisperers.

 

Interesting as to why Carl Grimes is on Talking Dead next week....thought that he wasn't a happy camper what with being fired and all?

Would be really interesting if Eugene was talking on the radio to the helicopter people, but I'm guessing that's not the case........ helicopter folk are now totally for the spin-offs, probably expensive to work and film with helicopters, so save them for the spin-off movie stuff with the movie sized budget????

 

The Carol and Daryl stuff was also really good, BUT, in those dark woods when the Walkers were getting close the Whisperers reverted to type and I couldn't make out a bloomin' word they were saying to one another!!!!!  What are they saying to each other??  "We're coming to get you" or "they went that way" or are they just making spooky noises????  One day I'll catch what they actually say.

 

Yes, I couldn't see Gamma either...... she'll be off on her Aaron task.

 

I'm sure I'll give this new spin-off a try, but who knows where it might end up..... I'm guessing it's not quite just a Fox or AMC fight any more (unless any contracts state they can get first refusal), we have so many more players and services where it might end up.  Fox now owned by Disney, what chances new stuff for the UK goes on the new Disney+.  It may not be easy or cheap to follow the whole TWD World for the next 50 years!!!!!!

 

Also, Talking Dead seem to be struggling for decent guests in recent times (who was on last night????), maybe why Carl is popping back for a chat??  Should be interesting to watch though.

@Lindzi @Thom77 Oh, that’s not what I thought it was ... I had it in my mind it was about a group of youngsters who had grown up in the apocalypse, I might be getting mixed up with another programme - or maybe that was one of the ideas they rejected (they must have come up with about half a dozen spin-off ideas by now - I was wanting the one set in the Arctic!!)

 

Yes, something very fishy about Carl appearing ... I reckon he’s up to something ... 🤨
