It’s been about ten episodes of The Walking Dead leading up to the Govenor vs. Rick standoff. And some viewers are hating, complaining about the “yawnfest” the show has seemed to take on ever since season three: part two began.
Maybe watching people getting chased by zombies just isn’t cool anymore?
Anyways, the slow build up of tension leading up to the obvious battle between the Gov’s Woodbury folk and Rick’s prison gang have some people sleeping rather than glued to the tube. Season one left you counting down the days until the next episode, but now it feels like the show’s barely gaining any ground by the end of each episode.
And this weeks “snoozey” ep, “Arrow on the Doorstep” proved it.
Some viewers expressed their frustrations over Twitter during Sunday night’s show:
@joerogan: “I Never watched a show that pisses me off more than the walking dead. After every episode I want to slap someone, mostly me for watching it.”
@PhilCaballeros: “Man, The Walking Dead isn’t even about zombies anymore.” Last night’s episode was totally boring.”
@VonSoTrill: “Damn #TheWalkingDead was boring last night”
@morganmoo2009: “The walking dead has got sooooo boring now”
@clairelovel: “another boring filler episode of the walking dead. seriously can a good episode happen soon? boooooreed”
The only thing that really happened was the Gov telling Rich he wants Michonne in exchange for peace between the two camps (Gov probably wants sweet revenge on M after she slaughtered his zombie daughter and gauged out his left eyeball in episode eight). “You have something I want,” the Govenor says. “One thing that makes this all right. Turn her [Michonne] over and this all goes away.”
So now it’s just up to Rick to decide.
