My wife called it quits on the show in the first few episodes of season 6. So I don't blame anyone for not wanting to watch anymore. Things get pretty gruesome from here on out, but that episode is kind of the apex of grotesqueness, just like Issue 100 of the books was their apex of grotesqueness.

My wife gave up the book after issue 100.
Maybe she just has a thing for asian dudes.

Bad news, gg.
Negan likes the sound of his own voice.
FYI, all of his speeches were filmed twice. Once for television, once for blu-ray. The latter is way heavier on the profanity.

Disgusting episode.
My wife says she's quitting the show.
I don't think they'll sustain this level of violence though:

Not that life is going to get easier anytime soon.

Well, that is unfortunate. I didn't mind the violence whatsoever, and it IS time to churn some of these characters, and I can be accused of thumbs-upping banal violence but getting in a tiff about dialogue, and yet...

Just some substance, that's all I want...I'll be watching Sunday, that much is for sure. Let's see where this goes.
Dysfunction and itemized lists of peopleís failures are where itís at.

On one hand, I kind of understand the bashing-in of the humans heads being a bit too much for someone, but to call it quits? You watch 6 seasons of a gore-filled show about zombies with almost endless grotesque scenes (it's supposed to be like that, btw), but then give up after all that bc someone gets their head caved in?

I just don't get it. What did you expect from a show like this?

Like I said, I totally understand someone not wanting to watch it, but if thats enough for someone to stop watching the show for good on the spot like that, after already watching 6 seasons of gore, you would think they never would have watched it to begin with....

If you can't see the different between zombie violence and human on human violence, then you might be the one who needs perspective.

One of my favorite parts of the episode.

Comic book spoiler/show theory below:
In that episode it kind of seemed like they're going to substitute Carol for Michonne as Ezekiel's love interest.

TBH i think you're being a little harsh, and i gotta back lifeboy up a bit.
  I don't see it that way at all, and i'm pretty much a pacifist.
not to beat a dead horse here, but this is a TV show. it is art. It is fiction. none of it is real. so zombie, human, alien, whathaveyou...we are viewing something that IS NOT REAL.
qualifiying zombie violence vs human violence is only relevant if we are comapraing them on the premise that zombies ARE real, IE within the fiction of the  show.

To play devil's advocate to your quip I'd say if YOu can't detach fiction from reality than... maybe you need perspective.
Like i said already, scenes like Noah getting his face eaten off were much more disturbing to me.
OF course if i was walking down the street in real life and i saw someone getting their head bashed in by another person it would be horrible, but TBH if i saw my friend gettin ghis face eaten off it would be worse...but that wouldnt happen BECAUSE it was real life, NOT TV,
thats all i got, i cant think of any other way of explaining this point.

first episode of the season was gruesome, but I can handle that. The tiger though, I'm not sure I can handle.

so, Fear the Waling DEad just had their season finale and i gotta say this season was really really good after the first 2 seasons were pretty meh.
not sure exactly but i think they brought over s. Gimple to produce and it defintiely had more of an authentic Waling Dead feel.
In fact it probably is more of the old school w. Dead vibe i prefer to whatever the current cheesy over the top thing we have now in the original series.
I honestly thought last season pretty much jumped teh shark after the 1st episode and im sorta nervous about this season being even decent after seeing th promos.
guess ill see next week.

I stopped watching TWD last season after episode 2. And I never even started the second season of FTWD.
