The more I think about the finale, the more I'm liking the way they handled The Governor:

He's now one of the most compelling characters, and he sets up the next season well. If they killed him they would be completely starting from scratch and just trying to find another cartoon-y villain to 1-up the Governor.
This show does attract a lot of negativity.

Despite some dodgy moments and what I thought to be a weak finale I really enjoyed this season. It was a huge improvement over the second season.

Michone and The Governor are great characters who injected some much needed life into the show.

Season 3: Episode 16 - Goodbye Andrea!! I knew there was gonna be a shocking death for the finale, but didnt think it was gonna be her. Andrea pissed me of a few times this season, but I am sad to see her go. I am gonna miss watching Laurie Holden, as I am big fan of hers. I think I'd rather have Beth or Hershal or even the baby offed for a shocking death moment. Anyways, this season finale episode was poorly done. The editing was weak and too fast and was just too damn rushed. Not to mention some very lowkey death scenes and gore. Where was all the blood and gore? Chop this episode down as weakly edited, directed, and written. Also add, it was the worst season finale for the series so far.

7.5/10

I don't get the hate the whole show gets, especially the finale. Sure, it is not the best show around, acting or plot-wise spoken. But I still enjoyed many moments, though I facepalmed myself at least a dozen times.
Though, that little Carl brat is getting on my nerves. The talking with his daddy after his kill - boy, this little fucker talked down to Rick, not conversely! That dwarf needs prolly the blonde young pussy in the group in order to keep his mouth shut. He is so damn annoying.
Wasn't surprised that Andrea is now dead and gone, unfortunately in a pretty cheap manner. The off-screen action bugged me too.

3. Governor fully snaps and is on the run. I want this motherfucker DEAD.
All of this, especially point one. I expected a lot more carnage and major kills than this.

I noticed that too. The acting even felt sometimes so damn cheesy, that it was hard to sit through a specific scene.
On the other hand, the zombie kills in manner and amount were completey satisfying. Can't bitch here at all.

And you don't understand the hate this show gets? Without acting or plot, you don't really have much of a show, now do ya?

My problem is that it should be sooooo much better than it is. Much like the past three seasons of Dexter. I'll still watch it. It's not putrid, like a CW show or anything, but it's not nearly as tight as it should be, or has been in the past.

I think the nay-sayers are bitching and complaining on a very high level. Not every series can hold up to the likes of Boardwalk Empire, Game Of Thrones or Breaking Bad. The Walking Dead did deliver the goods, zombie and horror fans were getting what they wanted: decent gore and zombie action in almost every last episode - though the plot and acting were sometimes too paper-thin. But after every season ending, I can live with that - though the satisfaction factor after watching a Breaking Bad episode is far more higher than the Walking Dead one.

I know and I basically think the same. But like I said, at the end of the day I am good with the series, though not completely overwhelmed or satisfied.

I never hate on this show. Even though it doesn't follow the books beat for beat (which is a common complaint), I still enjoy it a lot. That said, I was really disappointed with most of the second half of the third season. It seemed like it took several episodes for anything to really happen. The finale was especially disappointing. Such an anti-climactic ending left a bad taste in my mouth. I hope Season 4 makes up for the loss of momentum in the third season; otherwise, I can foresee myself losing interest.

You can only hold someone's attention for a short amount of time with gore and zombie carnage before it start's to get boring, and this show proves that. The whole point of The Walking Dead, from the conception, was to explore the human condition within the zombie apocalypse; complex or cool characters for you to get emotionally invested in. I can honestly say there's no character in the show I really care a whole lot about. Which is why when they get offed arbitrarily, it just feels devoid of emotion.

I don't think the series is totally worthless. What's frustrating is that there are glimpses of genius and great quality television, but it's shrowded in a sea of boring plot development and crappy acting. Like Heretic said, it could be a whole lot better than it is. Whoever takes over now that Mazzara is off the show, better be a damn good writer and bring an equally good writing team with him.
