I'll see you on the other side...

  • GODFLESH69

    Another EPIC thread !I guess we can all agree to disagree, good to see the FIENDS passionate about something .

    • The Buz

      See? Aren’t you glad I interrupted the echo chamber? :D

  • kiddcapone

    I just find it amusing when I consistently shit on the Paranormal Activity films or George Romero for being an overrated fossil (two subjects I can speak about since I actually WATCH all the films before I pass judgment), I get accused of being the dreaded “TROLL” word, but when Buz jumps into every single Walking Dead thread after admitting he stopped watching the show a long time ago and can’t refrain from repeating his hatred of the series, it’d done strictly in the name of “discussion and breakdown”…

    I didn’t realize we needed to continuously write a thesis in every thread on why fans continue to enjoy watching the Walking Dead. I like the characters. I like the storyline. I like the universe they created. I like the gore. I look forward to Sunday nights to see where the story goes and how divergent a turn it takes from the comic book. I am not interested in pacing issues or focusing on the episodes I liked the least.

    If you were currently watching the show and have issues, they by all means, add your two cents, otherwise it’s just repetitious empty comments.

    • Uncle Creepy

      You make a good point.

    • The Buz

      Firstly, a comment was made that was a dismissal of the criticisms of the show, so I bit.

      Secondly, I have never called you a troll because of your hatred of Romero or Paranormal Activity. In fact I did engage you in a conversation about PA, Marked Juans where we did break down what we liked and disliked about the film. I rather enjoyed that, did you not?

      And you don’t need to write a thesis in order to make a compelling argument for what makes the show good. I just find it rather …well… dumb when the only argument that is made for why The Walking Dead is so good is that people who don’t like it “don’t get it”

      Which come on, if I said to you that you don’t get Paranormal Activity therefor your opinion is invalid, you’d be pretty quick to retort.

      And I must add that I am specifically talking about discussions between YOU and ME.

      And I stopped watching 4 episodes ago. Ain’t that long, yo.

      • kiddcapone

        You know me; I love to engage in conversations and debates. And to be honest, I don’t know many people in the ‘real world’ that is as passionate about horror as I am, so Dread Central is my only venue to talk about shit.

        I just don’t see enough valid criticisms in your comments that warrant in-depth discussions. You’ve disliked the same exact things for a long time that most people, me included, don’t have issues with. How much can you talk about the same things that people find silly or non-consequential?

        I don’t think its people who think you don’t “get” the show, I think its people who don’t “get” your hatred of it, because your complaints are rather weak. If you hate the fact the group didn’t have a contingency plan to meet up at a location after the ambush, then okay, but if you hated the character of Andrea or think the show has pacing issues, then I can’t help you. We can talk until we’re blue in the face and nothing will change your personal feelings.

        • The Buz

          Hey man, I feel ya.

          But I think discussing the pacing is valid as it is a large part of my problems with the show (The farm), as well as just the painfully shallow characters
          (Andrea being the most prime example).

          A good example as to a pacing issue was the truncating of a rather cool story line with the Governor into only two episodes. That could have easily been spread out over the entire first half of the season and it wasn’t. For what then? To get a nice little surprise tag at the end of episode 4? You know what I’m saying?

          I have gone into quite a bit of detail of these things in numerous other threads and DFF (which I know you listen to).

          So it was presumptuous of me to assume that my critiques were just known. That being said, they are far from weak. Sorry they don’t resonate with you and you can gloss over those issues, but I cannot.

          I so desperately want to love the show but I cannot help but notice the issues in storytelling that the show has, from stagnant settings to bad character work.

          But hey, to each their own.

      I’m not lumping in DC altogether, but it all boils down to one word. Starts with an N and ends with ism. Pure and simple.

  • GODFLESH69

    “Alone” episode was solid, definately more going on and gaining momentum for the season finale. For those whining that it’s boring ,I guess you just want nonstop zombie mayhem with no character development ? I think the show is just too deep for some to comprehend.

    • Scott Hallam

      Agreed! Yes, the second half of this season has been something we haven’t seen before with intense character development…but boy, isn’t it paying off now?! I think we’re going to have a sick ride to the season finale!

    • The Buz

      Did you know that it’s possible to find something boring and uninteresting because the story, characters, and general pacing is poorly done and not because it’s missing “action” and “mayhem”?

      For all the criticism launched at Walking Dead, I love that it’s defenders must continually use “I guess you just don’t like slow burn character stuff” as a reason why the show is good.

      I don’t want constant zombie action. At all.

      Then again, I haven’t touched this season at all so what do I know?

      • Terminal

        It’s very possible, but I don’t understand why those that hate the show have to keep hammering home that they hate the show. They feel the need to indicate it at every turn as if they’re somewhat superior hence the webmaster at Bloody Disgusting’s campaign to put people off on The Walking Dead.

        There are so many great horror shows on I hate how horror fan boys have to create that divide to look down on one another. It’s horror for fuck sake, quit being such a fucking goddamn snob, you pricks.

        Instead of enjoying the view from a horror fan’s perspective, stop trying to push everyone beneath you because you enjoy a certain form of the genre.

        We get it. I get it. You don’t enjoy “The Walking Dead.” I get that. I do. Not everyone likes everything. I enjoy “True Detective” too. I also like “Bates Motel” and “Supernatural.” Doesn’t make me better than anyone here.

        There’s room on the field for everyone without us looking down our noses at each other and creating rifts.

        Or you know, you can just keep bragging about how you absolutely ADORE the brilliance of “True Detective” and “Game of Thrones.” Please fill us in on these secret gems no one else is aware of but you, especially since the former crashed the HBOGO website since so many people wanted to see it on Sunday.

        Yeah, you’re very much in on something no one else is. Pat yourself on the back and smell your own farts, you are on such a higher echelon.

        I wish Dread Central was for the horror community, and not the horror elite. Man I miss those days. I think that’s why I like Debi Moore and Uncle Creepy so much. They respect all ideas and fandoms concerning horror because we’re supposed to be a community. Good on them.

        • GODFLESH69

          FIEND GROUP HUG!

          • Terminal

            I’m for that. I think if Buz and I ever met we’d get along well. I love Jaws with all my heart.

        • The Buz

          Oh please, don’t give me the “You are such a snob” cop out.

          Fuck me for actually wanting a discussion and breakdown from you cry baby fan boys that can’t seem to form a single argument for TWD other than “I don’t understand why people don’t like it.”

          You use dismissals of the oppositions argument as your starting point. What kind of discussion is that? It isn’t one.

          So yeah, I will continue to comment on threads where people are desperately trying to discuss a show without really discussing anything other than “It’s so great, I don’t know why people don’t like it.”

          And just because something is “horror” doesn’t mean we have to like it. That’s silly and counter productive to the craft.

          • Terminal

            Cut the crap, Buz. Don’t lecture me about “the craft” of horror and then berate me for claiming you’re a snob. Yeah because your incessant cackling that often derails conversations on Dinner for Fiends signals a man very “serious” about “the craft” of horror.

            If it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it’s a fucking snob, pure and simple.

            I don’t use those dumb arguments about why people don’t like it, because I’m not you. I understand why some people don’t like The Walking Dead, and I don’t feel superior for loving it while others don’t.

            Hence the difference between you and I.

            You don’t explicitly say it, but your incessant bashing of the show bordering on pure obnoxious badgering while also saying “I can’t believe I mentioned Hannibal in the same breath as The Walking Dead” is just the same as saying “I don’t get why you don’t like Hannibal.”\

            AND FINALLY, if you bothered to read my response at all*, you’d learn that I was saying that we as horror fans don’t have to agree on everything or even like everything, but should at least appreciate that we’re all horror fans regardless.

            But then you’re not a cry baby fan boy. You’re just the baby who lashes out for attention from everyone. Now go Buz! Spread the word of that obscure gem “True Detective.” Man, I sure hope people begin watching that show, I’ve heard nothing about it on the internet.

            “So yeah, I will continue to comment on threads where people are desperately trying to discuss a show without really discussing anything other than “It’s so great, I don’t know why people don’t like it.”

            Hey however you choose to waste your time is your business man. I wish I could do that, too, but then again I value my precious time.

            *cue snarky passive aggressive comment from Buz about how he skimmed through my comment just to belittle my stance.

        • Debi Moore

          Thanks, Terminal, I appreciate the compliment. :) As for TWD, as I’ve said before, I’m really enjoying this back half of the season, especially because it is so different in tone and structure from what’s come before. And, like Kidd said, part of the fun of the series is comparing it to the comics. It is a bit odd for someone who stopped watching the show to keep commenting on it since things have changed up so much from prior seasons, but I know Buz is a passionate fan of the comics, which probably is why he can’t quite give up on it completely.

          • Terminal

            No worries, Ms. Moore. I know I’ve always been kind of kurt to you but you have always been very respectful even to horror fans that don’t like what you like, which is what I think we should all really aim for. Horror fans are always bitching about how the genre needs more respect, and yet we still really resort to the same lame tactics to make others feel like lesser fans.

            I love the comics too. I’ve been reading them since issue one and am a hardcore fan. I’ve read the books, and keep track with all things TWD. If I had money to burn I’d be buying TWD merchandise left and right. I have a friend equally passionate about TWD who hates the show and avoids it like the plague. The show won’t win over all TWD fans, but if that’s the case to them I say, just stick to the comics and quit whining about the show, is all I’m saying.

            The comics are still going strong and still as excellent as ever, but the show isn’t going anywhere any time soon either. It still gets excellent ratings, and the fandom for it is passionate. I can comprehend that not everyone enjoys TWD.

            Buz lumps every TWD fan in to one category to justify his moaning and groaning rather than refusing to dismiss a whole following for the actions of a few, and that’s a shame.

        • Uncle Creepy

          Thanks Terminal. I don’t think horror elitists are a problem. People like what they like. But I do agree that if you’re not watching something you shouldn’t be talking shit about it.

          Yes, you can complain about things that made you choose to stop watching it but that only goes so far…

          • The Buz

            You…mean….

            You’re not allowed an opinion on a television show even after you stopped watching (when in reality you’re four episodes behind) even if you’re not commenting on new episodes specifically but the show as a whole?

            MFW http://i.minus.com/iYHR5eWAOsvQI.gif

          • Uncle Creepy

            How can you comment on the show as a whole if you stopped watching it? LOL

          • The Buz

            With a straight face you are telling me that the last 4 episodes have changed the entire course of the show away from what it was 6 episodes prior? And I’m not talking setting.

          • Uncle Creepy

            Changed the course no. Have been fantastic, yes.

          • Terminal

            Agreed, Creepy. I hate how every fucking numbskull now has to point out how the show sucks and how they stopped watching it four weeks ago, and yet seem oddly aware of the latest storylines and character turns.

            It almost immediately stops becoming opposite opinions and dives in to pure trolling.

            And don’t give me that “I watched the commercials” or “My buddy told me about it” crap. It’s still giving attention to a show you don’t like.

            I don’t care for “American Horror Story” but I don’t pollute every single news item pointing out how the show is dumb, boring, and a piece of shit. What’s the point of that, really?

            And the declarations “I much prefer Hannibal, it’s superior blah blah fucking blah.”

            Aren’t you special? How about letting me enjoy this moment of a show I love without you forcing your own preferences on me?

            Stop wasting so much precious time bashing and watching a show you allegedly don’t like just to be contrarian. Time is finite, I can’t imagine spending my time watching shows I hate. It’s why I avoid any and all reality shows, singing shows, etc.

            Whether you like The Walking Dead, Dexter, Supernatural, Vampire Diaries, we’re all just the same horror fans deep down. And you and Ms. Moore seem very cognizant and respectful of that fact.

            The Walking Dead is not for you? Okay, to each their own, just don’t keep pounding it in to my fucking head ad nauseum.

      • GODFLESH69

        obviously not much, you have your opinion I have mine .I think the characters are solid for the most part and again this is a series so pacing will not always be fast paced it’s telling a story that is ongoing .I’m actually appreciating the character focus of second half of this season , a little more character development was needed and it’s getting that done while still delivering the zombie goods. I’m not going to try and convince anybody to like TWD .It seems like you’ve tossed in the towel so enjoy whatever else you want, but if you haven’t seen this season should you comment at all?

        • The Buz

          Pacing isn’t so much an issue of Fast Paced vs slow paced.

          Pacing can be extremely fast paced and be really off. For instance the pacing of the two Governor episodes before the mid season finale felt very rushed and the pacing was off. This was due to them squeezing in a half of season worth of stuff into just two 44 minute episodes. It would have served the pacing of that story line better to have stretched it out over the course of the first half of the season and had it going on at the same time as the Prison/Flu epidemic arc.

          That is what I mean by poorly done pacing.

          And yeah I gave up on the show. But that doesn’t mean I can’t comment in the echo chamber. Also you specifically mentioned the dissenters in your initial comment with a misinterpretation as to why people don’t like that show, thus I commented to clarify.

          Thank you though for the discussion. I really do like talking about story telling and breaking down what we think is good and bad. I personally find TWD’s story telling to be lacking and leaving a lot to be desired.
