    Walking Dead is pretty damn close to crap. The only real consistently good thing about it, are it's special effects. Everything else is hit or miss.

    Game Of Thrones on the other hand, is strong in every element of filmmaking. Whether it suits your tastes or not, is another matter.

    • l thought it was a somewhat decent finale for this show and what it has become, which is a pale, lesser shadow of the comic book. By way of this third season, (which is the only season of this series that l've enjoyed so far) l've managed to differentiate between the show and the comic, and to enjoy the show on it's own merits. l still can't help but make some comparisons, though. Whats weird is that the third season began resembling Kirkman's original source material more than the show ever had before...but it ends in a way which promises that season four will more than likely veer into completely uncharted territory.

      [SPOILER]I can't believe Andrea died. Guess l should have seen that coming, since shes been nothing but a bumbling bimbo from the very start. l could take out a walker, if my hands were free, and l had a pair of pliers.

      l got the impression that nobody wanted to stay in Woodbury because of all the terrible things that happened there, under the Governor's tyrannical rule. But l damn sure can't see all of season four taking place in the prison. Rick's people are better off on the move, slaying deadfucks. l'm just saying that because l prefer nomadic zombie tales.[/SPOILER]

      Oh yeah, and Game of Thrones rules.

      • Have to say I'm really disappointed how they've handled Andrea as a whole on this show. One of the best characters in the comics turned into fucking empty-headed, irritating bitch, only to be [SPOILER]written off in such a poor way. Seriously, that death was rushed as fuck and out of nowhere.[/SPOILER]

        Overall a pretty terrible finale. Also should throw in some Carl hate, because every post about this show should contain some Carl hate. Carl... I hate you.

          Nah. The LOST series finale still has that odious honor.

          • I think my Dad summed it up best when it ended. "Well that was really anti-climatic."

            For all the build-up, all the speculation and hype of who will die...we get a very empty "Not-Finale".

            It's certainly a bummer considering this season had some bright spots which were way better then season 2. Some of the bright spots were because they deviated from the comic, but unfortunately for this episode...they should have made it more like what happened in the comic.

            One of the things which irritated me the most was...[SPOILER]Allen, who instantly became the slowest being alive the moment he drew his weapon at the Governor. Seriously, the Governor could have had a smoke and a light snack before shooting Allen, and Allen still wouldn't have pulled the freakin' trigger. It was a real idiotic moment just to keep the Governor for next season. [/SPOILER]
            The level of human stupidity has gone too high, we must bring out the Brick Gun.

              [SPOILER]I don't think it was a matter of being slow, Allen was an indecisive coward, he pointed his gun at the Gov out of the shock of what he'd just seen but never had any intention of pulling the trigger because he's a coward, I believe the Governor seen that and didn't feel a need to quick draw on him.[/SPOILER]

              I kind of like that they [SPOILER]didn't kill the Gov and now that he's finally become that maniacal psychopath that he is in the books the writers can sit on his character for awhile and have him pop back up when we all least expect it, all batshit crazy and ready for a real fight... also Carl needs a beating, that little brat needs to be brought down a peg. I was crossing my fingers that Morgan would pop up at some point but oh well, he's not dead yet and there's always next season[/SPOILER]

              I enjoyed this season and although the finale was a bit anti-climactic I was still entertained but of course if I wasn't I wouldn't watch the show unlike some of you who constantly whine about most everything on the show yet keep watching only to complain some more. Some of you people are like online versions of The Comic Book Guy, "Worst Show Ever!" "Worst Episode Ever!" "Worst Character Ever!" yet never consider turning the channel because it seems you just want something to complain about online.

              • A step down from the previous episodes, and a pretty "meh" finale.

                I did however like that [SPOILER]the governor finally snapped completely.[/SPOILER]

                • Yeah, that was extremely lackluster. I was expecting[SPOILER] the Governor to come screaming back into the prison, but no, it just ended.
                  [/SPOILER]
                  I didn't mind the [SPOILER]Andrea and Milton scenes but the cutaways to his and her deaths was also weak.[/SPOILER]

                  Not the worst finale but close.

                  • Horrible finale and as mentioned already anti-climatic.
                    [SPOILER]I feel like a complete idiot thinking they would have killed off more than 1 major character.[/SPOILER]

                    • Agreed with everyone. Very lackluster especially after the previous episode. Three things really irked me...

                      1. No major deaths. I wanted to see someone go out in a blaze of glory, making a last stand to defend another

                      2. Carl. Whats with the little psycho mentality? Im gonna start calling him mini-Shane

                      3. Governor fully snaps and is on the run. I want this motherfucker DEAD.

                      • I'm not completely disgusted with the finale, but what bothers me is how AMC manipulates their episode previews to make one think that events are going to happen that really never materialize. They're at fault for building up the final confrontation to the point where any deviation from what they suggested would be a letdown. I'm glad they killed off Andrea. As was said above, one of the comic's best characters somehow became just plain annoying. I fault the actress, Lori Holden, who was in over her head from the beginning.

                        It appears that the series has almost completely diverged from the comic at this point, and once again it's the producers' job to introduce yet another new group of characters while still making the story interesting and action-packed. I'm really glad they didn't follow the comic to end season three because many of the characters that anchor the show would have been killed off. One of the many problems with the lukewarm ending for me is that it makes so many of the sacrifices and deaths in the episodes preceding it somehow pointless.

                        Anyway, It will be interesting to see how interest in season four will be promoted because of the non-cliffhanger ending to season three.

                        • I should catch up with this show...

                          I've been reading the comics for ages and I hated the first season.

                            I can't really blame Holden. She's a decent actress. She's just been given shit material to work with. Andrea being a bumbling, emotionally confused retard, is all in the writing.

                            I actually think most of the actors(minus Carl), are all pretty capable. I think the problem lies in the directing, and writing. For instance, I don't think Andrew Lincoln is a bad actor, he just needs a director to weed out his faults. Someone to say "Ok, emotionally you're at a 10 right now, and we need you to bring it down to an 8". It seems to me, that the actors are given free reign to do whatever they want, with nobody coaching them along the way.

                            The quality of the acting has dropped considerably, ever since Darabont got canned. In the first season, everyone was on point. Since then, the acting has been very hit or miss, as has everything else.

                              The TV series will never come up to the level of the comic. the comic is bleak, bleak, bleak. TV land audiences would lose their minds if they were confronted with the insanity of Kirkman's book.

                                A decision I still dont fully understand. I love the show but honestly dont think it would have become as popular if it werent for his input in the beginning.
