The Walking Dead Season 8 Review

Season 8 just wrapped up on 4/15/2018 and I wanted to put down my opinions and thoughts about this season. Let me start by saying that I didn’t hate this season, I didn’t love it, but I didn’t hate it. The first half of the season was entertaining enough but the second half of the season sort of lost some steam in my eyes. I know they were hoping the death of Carl would have a lot of shock value and raise a lot of fur but it didn’t do it for me. Negan, while still entertaining at times, seems a bit overdone at this point. I’m also really not enjoying the ‘trash heap’ people and story-lines.  Also, they are severely over-playing their hand with Morgan. I do love the Morgan character but they are really pushing him too hard in the later episodes to prep him for the intro into Fear The Walking Dead.

So going into the finale episode I didn’t expect too much, nor did I really know what to expect at all. I didn’t know if they would wrap up the ‘war’ story line or if they’d just leave more hanging until next season like they have done before. Up until the finale episode the viewers has dropped steadily from 11 million viewers per episode to just over 6 million. Which is consistently lower than any other season. Anyway, back to the finale episode… I was overall pretty upset with the finale episode. It was pretty flat to be a finale. I didn’t like the set up with Maggie, Jesus and Daryl. The Negan scene was week and a bit lame. Just overall not very happy with it. This is a story for another blog but I was quite happy with the premiere of Season 4 of Fear The Walking Dead.
