Whoever said that they loved that the show made you warm up to Oscar(?) and then him dying, then this must be the only show you ever watch if you didn't see that something major was going to happen to him.|
Anything that happens in this show, character wise, nearly always, always serves the plot in the most hamfisted way possible.
Oscar was either going to kill Carol, or be killed himself. Finally giving him some scenes and then killing him off is awful, predictable shittery.
And also, if anyone thought Andrea was actually going to kill the Governor at the end then they need their heads checking. Why do they insist on scenes like that when there is literally no doubt whatsoever that she wouldn't do it.
I'm watching Breaking Bad again at the moment, maybe this is my problem. Things in The Walking Dead happen too quickly, with barely any foreshadowing, it's like every episode has a different writer AND NONE OF THEM SPEAK TO EACH OTHER.
Also, Merle actually being fucking literate and having read the bible MEANS NOTHING. Once again, it's a massively hamfisted way of wanting the audience to go "Wow, there's definitely a side to Merle here that we haven't seen previously!"
It's not a bad show by any means but goddamn get some better fucking writers and stay away from the awful cliches and the apparent assumption that your audience is thick and has only ever seen NCIS and Corrie before.
