Have not seen it yet but heard some others laughing at the bad acting at the start when some guy is suppose to get shot. Might just watch that bit but ditch the show as getting worse and worse

I'm thinking of watching ep2 again but concerned I still won't have the slightest clue what's going on or how it links to the end of ep1

Just watched episode 2 . What pile of toss. I will continue to watch but it really has become a background show where I always end up looking at my phone after a couple of minutes.

So, tried watching it again but gave up after 15mins.

Is it meant to be set before, during or after Ep1?

For the first time since the show started I won't be watching it live on Sunday. Shameless is back tonight and I'm not too bothered about hearing spoilers the next day despite hearing on the after show Talking Dead

Episode 3 was appalling television. I've given it enough chances, no more.

It was another mixed bag of good & bad & WTF for me. The Rick & Daryl scenes were genuinely tense as they looked in real trouble, but then you get the horrendous scenes with the King being too cocky & spouting Shakespearian BS & my eyes start to hurt from rolling too much!

Some awesome zombie effects in this episode. A shame they had to resort to ninja zombies again. Rolling down the hill and suddenly boom, there's one on top of Morgan.

That was absolutely awful. I genuinely can't remember watching three episodes of such poor quality of a TV show which has previously hit some very high heights.

I didn't find the Rick scenes tense at all because I (thought I) knew exactly how they'd pan out and I was right. And the action scenes were laughable.

Bemused and confused.

I thought ep3 was better than 2 but only because it made coherent sense! I've still no clue how 2 follows on from 1. Still at least there's some action and not whole episodes of "character development", although I imagine that's coming soon...

Hmmm.. I might finally be ready to drop this series... Not giving it much more of a chance. Was on my phone for most of episode 3; the episode was just so boring.

I think that we've finally dropped this now in my house. We had a Sky Q box installed so lost both episode 2 and 3 and the series link. I know that we can get it all back on catch up in a couple of clicks but no one seems that bothered.

Probably best for your own eyes, ears and sanity that you don't.

Good point! Had forgotten about them. Nothing further for two whole episodes but then they're playing about with time anyway so they'll explain it away that way.

I dropped it in season 6, I find it bizarre that such an exciting premise can result in such dull television.
