I'll definitely keep watching especially to see what scenes they choose to use fiathfully from the comic, but I don't want to buy the last season on DVD or rewatch it either. As opposed to Game Of Thrones, (I have watched every episode several times now).

I only finished the last season of TWD because everyone i knew was watching it and I like to talk entertainment with people.

But it was so bad there is no chance I'll be returning.

What does Walt Goggins have to do to get any respect?

Patton Oswalt deserved a nomination for the Drewbecca moment. Or the Star Wars Episode 8 rant.

It's like the Oscars, superhero or sci-fi movies rarely get recognized, while movies most people have never seen or heard of get recognized by the elitists who make the selections. So it goes with Walking Dead getting the shaft while GOT and that horrible Girls show with that chick who nauseatingly loves to show her fat ass get recognized because they're the flavor of the day with the elitists who make the selections.

GoT is an amazing show, the second highest rated show HBO has ever had, the most pirated show on television right now and fantasy.

Totes elitist

The Dungeons and Dragon crowd doesn't watch the History Channel. Too educational. Plus it's only been on one season. Even Seinfeld took a couple years to catch on.

Not that I disagree about GoT being much better than Walking Dead, but I enjoy both shows a lot. And at the end of the day, I am fairly certain The Walking Dead beating even network shows in the ratings is more important than Emmy nominations, which are fairly irrelevant.

It wasn't bad, you just have to forget the comic book continuity and enjoy it as it is.

The Oscars are not elitist, on the contrary, they tend to nominate well-known movies, famous actors and directors. They rarely take a chance.

Game of Thrones deserves all the accolades they receive. They have managed to properly adapt a fantastic series of novels and actually do them justice. The cast really is phenomenal.
