    predictable midseason finale, a twist at the end that seems rather dumb, not a single character died all season even though the cast is up to what seems like over 20 people now. They need to turn this around or this show went from mediocre to fantastic to garbage.

    This half-season had some good ingredients:
    • a geographical obstacle (though this was never that convincing due to the actual geography)
    • the return of Daniel
    • the entrance of Dwight (though how did he get there?)
    • the ticking time bomb of a nuclear meltdown
    • the appearance of the helicopter group that took Rick
    But it was almost like a big bottle episode, kind of like a new version of the hurricane from last season. I'm hoping that we'll see more of the helicopter group in the second half, but who knows? Presumably the group looking for Clayton's journal will be the antagonist. And introducing a good antagonist is no guarantee, as Proctor John (I've said this before) was the best, smartest, most dangerous one IMO, and they ejected that storyline.

    This Forbes half-season recap shows how weird it really was:

    I laughed at this comment: "Morgan's storyline this season mostly revolves around him losing his stick, trying to get new sticks, getting his old stick back, his stick breaking. He is the lead of the show."

    I thought it was really bad as far as plot structure goes and mostly a waste of time to add dwight, some kids and promote ricks movie. it seems to me we will not see those people on this show in the forseeable future and it was just tie in cross promotion.

    I had a dozen or so episodes taking up space on my DVR. I ended up deleting them. I just could bring myself to watch this anymore.

    I like how both series always bring in a character in a semi-sketchy way so you don't know if they are a good or bad person. I am betting the new guy is a good person. Anyone that has a side car on their motorcycle is open to having at least a partner. They can't be totally anti social. I can see after watching that tear jerker corny video, I wouldn't want to call any of those people either! LOL!

    I thought he was clearly going to be an issue until Logan decided to pop back up. The whole episode was pretty corny and lame TBH but whatever. The end was the only part I really enjoyed. Hopefully Logan and his crew kill some people. The cast of this show has grown out of control and nothing actually bad has happened to any of them in a long time so owe end up with this annoying kumbaya episode.

    Id really like Dorie and june to be left alone though. If we lose one, the other will be in shambles. They should be all or nothing.

    Id like Daniel and Alicia to stick around too.

    The rest, I really dont care anymore. Especially luciana, they have ruined her. I used to like Morgan, now he monologues too much and does the dumbest things on the show like running through a minefield.

    I'm a little behind, watching them find the mall looking for the red jacket guy. Quite boring and dramatic lately.

    The bad guy is stealing the tapes! oh no!

    SMH

    a lot of people need to die. This show has no suspense at all.

    I do not know a lot about oil and converting it to gasoline but uh....is the main plot line of the second half of this season even feasible? Can people just find an oil field and make gas? I am assuming not.

    So, I guess everything is just running on the same fuel too. The diesels and the vehicles.

    I'm still watching but man.... Ever see a zombie show where no one dies?

    It goes in stages. There are a lot more casualties on The Walking Dead. This is like The Walking Dead G rated version.
