SoS EP 41: Has Walking Dead Jumped The Shark? [SPOILERS]

On this week’s episode of Secrets of the Sire we go FULL Walking Dead! The Walking Dead Season 7 Premiere was rife with violence and death but did it go over the top? Or was it merely being faithful to the comic book?

We discuss with Rus Wooton, part of the Walking Dead comic book creative team.

Here is a snippet from the show:

“I’m done.”

That was my initial reaction after watching the episode earlier this week (in my case Monday morning…not the way to start your work week off believe me)

So I walked away thinking that’s it. Not because the violence was over-the-top (it was). Not because I didn’t see the deaths coming (I did…and then I didn’t) but mainly because it just stopped being fun. I had this whole top 10 deaths in comcis and movies bit planned. You know the Gwen Stacy, the Jean Grey, the Han Solo…nope. Not doing it. This wasn’t fun. The deaths in this episode wasn’t fun. I didn’t walk away feeling like I have in the past. I didn’t walk away feeling like I have for Game of Thrones. This was just. Not. Fun.
