Walking Dead Season 9
Premieres Sunday October 9 on AMC, and it actually looks good now that Gimple is gone.
Daryl and Maggie turn on Rick.
Carol and Ezekiel hook up.
Tons of new people.
And if I'm not mistaken... the zombies start to talk. Watch the very end of the trailer, and I think that the show is going to pay homage to George Romero, with thinking and talking zombies. That should be VERY interesting.
Looks like Walking Dead is going BALLS TO THE WALL for season 9. Could be epic!

It's totally ridiculous R3, especially given the "canon" that was established in season one by Jenner at the CDC. He said that the victims are still dead, and that the virus stimulates only the body functions of needing to feed, but not the brain activity or the "who we were" part of our humanity.
It flat out established what the zombies could and could not do, which is why Kirkman said that he regretted having the group go to the CDC in season one.
However, I think that they are just throwing all of that out the window, especially given that #1) ratings are down, and #2) Rick is leaving. They needed SOMETHING to give the show new life.

Then you should have said that in the first place, ASSHOLE R4/R7. Not everybody reads the comics or works for AMC.
[quote] The Whisperers are a mysterious group of survivors who disguise themselves with roamer skin to blend in with them and not get noticed.
[quote] Pre-Apocalypse: Nothing is known about the Whisperers before or as the outbreak began, except that most of them may have lived in or near Washington, D.C..
[quote] Post-Apocalypse:The Whisperers are first seen following Marco and Ken. Later, Marco tells his fellow survivors that the undead are whispering to him, and his cohorts do not take him seriously. Later, after a search party is sent to look for Ken, Whisperers ambush Dante and two more men of the search party. They brutally stab the two men to death and keep Dante hostage.
"You came into our land. Killed our kind. Now we explore your land, learn about your people. You will see many of us. You will know us. You will fear us." —Alpha, the leader of the Whisperers

Maggie and Daryl are pissed at Rick because he didn't kill Negan. So they are at odds, coming into season 9. They're also mad at Michonne, because she helped Rick save Negan.
The one thing we know for sure in season 9, is that Rick will die.

I think this season will be different. I could tell from the previews, there's a different vibe.
Scott Gimple was fired as showrunner, and there is a new one this season.
The colors are different, the scenery is different, and the writing should be better.
Gimple is fucking up Fear the Walking Dead, but thankfully he's not on this show anymore.
I'm going to give it one more shot and see how the new show runner does. Plus it's Andrew Lincoln's final season, so I'll watch just for sentimental reasons.

R16, I'm guessing Negan is being held in that stupid prison cell that Morgan was building in Alexandria? Like that didn't foreshadow "Negan behind bars" from the first fucking split second I saw it!
R17, I agree that Scott Pimple is the one who ruined the show, though it was already stupid and boring before that. But he just went too far with the ridiculousness, like Glenn's death fakeout and the entire episode where the gang is herded into their confrontation with Negan. Not to mention the only reason there needed to be a confrontation was because they fucked up in the first place by immediately killing his men instead of, like, grabbing a brain and thinking about possible consequences. And those fucking Garbage People literally infuriated me, I fucking hated that fugly cunt leader and her ridiculous way of speaking.
So yeah, but no, I've made up my mind and will never ever come back to this shitshow. I watch tv to be entertained, not infuriated.

R18, I'll keep you posted on this thread.
I really have a feeling that it won't be as ridiculous as it has been for the past four or five seasons that Pimple ran the show.
The execs know that fans have been tuning out in droves, so they also know that they need to change the direction of everything that's been going on for the past five years.
I truly believe that it's going to be different this season.

R27 I wonder if the two actors really get along behind the scenes.
Whenever there is a group of TWD actors together she seems distant to him & prefers the company of others while trying to be "diplomatic".
The blind items about him imply that he is a drunk jerk who will have sex anywhere with a woman (not always the one he is committed to).
I wonder if she is repulsed by his behavior or had rejected him early on. She might have been on good terms with several of his exes.

Was Rick killed off in the comic ?
Obviously, it is a zombie apocalypse show ..... but for me, killing off the lead character I've been rooting for for eight years just jumps the shark. The loss of Rick will create a big gaping hole.

I agree, R39.
The entire Grimes family will be gone from the show, except for Judith who we know nothing about.
It's funny because Rick and Carl are still alive in the comic book. However, since stupid Gimple ruined the show by firing Chandler Riggs, and making the storyline stupid and boring as possible, that's why Andrew Lincoln is leaving as well.
I think that Lincoln would have left anyway, having done the show for nine years, but I have no doubt that Scott Gimple and the terrible direction he took the show in, had a lot to do with it.

An insider here on an old thread, mentioned that they decided to fire Chandler before he turned 18, because they would have to had paid him much more money, according to SAG rules.
If you look it up, he was blindsided by his firing, because he had just bought a house in Georgia (thinking that he would be there a while), and his father was extremely pissed. He said some not so nice stuff about Gimple and AMC.
I have a feeling that a lot of these things contributed to AMC putting Gimple off the show.

Almost every character on this show has had sex except Darryl - 9 years he has been a monk
Maybe he is asexual?
|by Anonymous||reply 45||10/06/2018|
I think that the closest Daryl ever came to having sex, was with Beth in the cabin during season 5.
They were all alone together in a mountain cabin, and totally drunk off of moon shine. There was the slightest hint that Daryl wanted to have sex with her, when he said "lets go inside," or something like that. However, Beth said that she wanted to burn down the cabin instead, and that was that.
I don't know if there was some allusion to Daryl and Merle being molested by their drunken father, but it also seems likely. That's why they were both so fucked up at the beginning of the series.
So Daryl could indeed by asexual, perhaps because he was molested when he was younger.
Personally, I always thought that Aaron had the hots for him, and vice-versa. Too bad they didn't explore that angle. Aaron never really seemed that much into Eric. It was all about Daryl.
Later versions of Daryl are kind of gross to me, but season one Daryl was HOT AS FUCK!

Rick and Jessie were the perfect couple. I never cared much for Lori, because she was such a bitch.
But Jessie was totally Rick's type. Sweet and feminine, with big tits. They had chemistry the instant I saw them together on screen. Like, he literally wanted to bang her when she started cutting his hair!
I never bought the Rick and Michonne romance, because she's just too masculine for him. Rick is such an alpha man, that his type of woman would be very feminine.
Killing off Jessie was a big mistake.

I only got through half of season three when I stopped watching the first time. I just couldn’t get past the plot holes in the storyline and the walkers didn’t seem threatening, they were pretty slow and seemed really easy to kill.
Anyway, I’m so bummed they are killing off Rick and I agree a romance between him and Michonne seems forced and unnatural for Rick’s character.

It's ridiculous that the Saviors are being catered to like a bunch of helpless invalids. Let brainiac Eugene mastermind some plans that help them work together to farm some land, grow some crops, so that they can sustain themselves instead of sitting in that warehouse waiting for Rick to bring them supplies. Rick should have advised them that he'd help them for X time, then they'd have to make a new plan - stay together, split up, find new outposts.

On another note, I do like the Ezekial character. His backstory where he was a zookeeper who did community theater and that's how he got to be a king with a tiger amuses me. The actor who plays him is uninteresting when on the Talking Dead which indicates to me that he's doing a good job with the role.
I miss the cgi Tiger, as improbable as she was. I wonder if cgi has reduced the need for those professional wildlike handlers and their trained animals. Maybe that's gone the way of hand drawn cel animation where they need a few of the genuine article as models for the computers.

I wonder if they will do on TWD what they did on FTWD and get rid of most of the original cast for a reboot around a different headliner. I've been posting for a while that I read an article several years ago that said JDM had a long term contract, Lincoln wanted to leave, and everything was moving toward Negan mending his ways and being the leader. It looks like that is what us happening, although I don't think they expected the hate for Negan's character and JDM's portrayal of him. Daryl and Carol might be the only originals left when they are finished because I don't think they can kill them off with the way people feel about Negan. I don't expect Michonne to stay on the show or Maggie.

I loved surly badass Michonne when she was first introduced. Now that she's loving sweet girlfriend Michonne I don't particularly care about her fate.
I thought she was doomed by hooking up with the lead. His romances tend to end with extreme prejudice.

There was a very noticeable difference in the show on Sunday. Yeah, new intro, 1.5 years time jump, etc. but at least it had shit happening. The show was so fucking boring the past few seasons. I hope it continues to pace through some story/action vs. those miserable, character centric episodes that made me want to rip my eyeballs out. I liked the first episode of this new season. Never thought I'd say that, especially on the verge of giving up on it.

How can Negan become the leader? Everyone but Rick and Michonne want him dead. I didn't even recognize Jadis, she cleans up good. Whoever did her makeover needs to get a hold of Daryl, he's rough.

Daryl probably spoke more in this premier than he did all last season. I laughed when Chris Hardwick on Talking Dead said Daryl talked in 'grunts and snarls' the last couple of years because it's true.
I also don't get how Negan will be the leader. Except for a few in the Sanctuary, who would follow him? Maybe he does something heroic to try and save Rick and that changes people's opinions of him. But I wouldn't be unhappy if someone offed the fucker.

POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT-
The theory doing the rounds is that Daryl stabs Rick, Rick gets bitten by a Walker, Maggie puts him out of his misery and Michonne kills Maggie for being in on it with Daryl. There's a video up thread that looks pretty convincing but wouldn't be surprised if it's a red herring by the writers/producers.

R147 that'd be a shitty way to treat the long time characters. Have Daryl and Maggie kill Rick? After all theyve been through? C'mon, they can do better than that.
And r149 for sure everyone would hate Daryl and Michonne. And if Daryl is supposed to be taking over the lead role, I can't imagine the show runners would want him coming in with ricks death on his hands and all that ire from the fans. We already have Negan to hate.
I hope this isn't true. Maybe the Whispers get Rick and Daryl does the mercy killing. That I can believe.
|by Anonymous||reply 152||10/11/2018|
I think that they're trying to deflect the hate from Negan, on to other characters.
They are basically forcing Negan down our throats, whether we like it or not.
Even in the promotional ads, they have Negan saying, "You think you're making a new world? You're just getting it ready for ME."
That wouldn't be in the ad, if the producers didn't purposely want it to be there. It's pretty clear that Negan is going to take over the show, whether we like it or not.

So far, Brett Butler is the best thing about season nine for me.
She has really upped the ante as far as the acting goes on this show. Her portrayal of the character is so gritty and raw, and I love how she doesn't try to pretty herself up like dumbass useless Rosita does.
Brett just goes without makeup, and lets it all fly. I'm so happy she joined the cast. It's a very pleasant surprise.

The fact that "Father Gabriel" is Episcopalian means that he can marry, but it DOES NOT mean that he can have sex before marriage.
He's not married to Anne/Jadis, so he's already breaking his vows. Plus, he's killed tons of people already.
He needs to just give up his "Father" title, and say fuck it. He's still going to hell.
