exactly what it seems to be.

That was so disappointing, and that last line, URGHH, poor Michelle, must’ve signed a contract or something, the directing was good, but the writing, oh well, I guess this one show I won’t be watching next season.March 30, 2014 at 9:05 pm #288008
I’ve had mixed feelings about this season, but that finale left me mostly disappointed. I think one of the reasons I ended up really liking this show is because it was so unpredictable, and anymore, it has mostly been…predictable? Besides the one fantastic episode with Carol and the girls, there wasn’t anything particularly shocking this season. I will commend the writers on exploring a little further with character development, but I needed a fairer balance of characterization and twists and turns we’re used to seeing on this show. Even the cliffhanger which was supposed to be this big thing ended up being fairly predictable based on the outset of the episode. I kept waiting for something even worse to happen but it never quite got there. My hope is that the show returns to that greatness next season in plotting how to escape Terminus, the return of badass Rick, etc.March 31, 2014 at 6:36 am #288009
I had such high hopes for this finale- thought we’d finally get some answers on Terminus, which had been building suspense for this entire back half of the season. But alas, we get a cheesy last line from Rick Grimes- “they’re screwing with the WRONG people!”- and we learn that the people in Terminus are not what we expected (but maybe they are cannibals?). I mean some of the scenes were horrifying and had me cringing, but still. The very end completely ruined the episode. I get the point of the episode- to show, through flashbacks to a more stable/peaceful time, that Rick is a changed man. He will now do anything it takes to protect those he cares about (and this includes biting into someone’s jugular).
But give me a break. So now we have the group (minus Beth, Carol, Tyreese and baby Judith- WHERE ARE THEY?) being all smelly in a dumpster until October. Great job, AMC. At least AMC execs know that this show will probably break another ratings record in 7 months.March 31, 2014 at 9:11 pm #288011
This was a pretty weak season, but it had some pretty interesting stuff and memorable deaths.
I hope they come strong with 5th season, i was reading the post made about TWD on Latest News and it was dissapointing seeing it on a Worst Hit Show poll….. i don’t thing this show is bad at all, it just had a weak season (that still wasn’t bad, just not great)March 31, 2014 at 9:28 pm #288012
Awful second half of the season and awful final line for the season finale. The rest of the episode was very good, but of course they ruined it by 1. Not showing anything and 2. That awful line from Rick.
Yes, they’re going to destroy that place like they did with The Governor and everything he ran, but common, right now, you’re all inside a container until the december finale so shut the fuck up Rick. Terminus got you.
Also, those posters asking “Who will survive?”. I guess “everybody” was the answer.July 30, 2014 at 8:29 pm #288013
‘Walking Dead’ Star Steven Yeun Is Writing and Producing His Own Projects to Create Better Roles For Asian Actors
Videos | By Jordan Zakarin on July 22, 2014 @ 3:45 pm
I think that if I had not been Asian, I probably would have a whole plethora of roles, at least to audition for, but it’s just not what has been written” he tells TheWrap
Steven Yeun took a big leap of faith back in 2005, deciding that instead of pursuing a proper — and lucrative — career, he’d instead move to Chicago to try his hand at acting.
The risks here were twofold: First, it is of course remarkably difficult to forge and sustain a career as a working actor — and it is exponentially more difficult to do so as an Asian-American.
Exhibit A: Yeun is one of the most important cast members on the biggest show on television, “The Walking Dead,” and he’s still fighting hard to earn the sort of auditions that reflect his success.
“People ask, ‘So, how are the roles now? You must be getting so many.’ And it’s like, I don’t know if you know, but I’m Asian still,” Yeun told TheWrap earlier in July, laughing. “It’s not a complaint, that’s just how it is now, and I have to forge my own path through it and see that through. I think that if I had not been Asian, I probably would have a whole plethora of roles, at least to audition for, but it’s just not what has been written.”
It almost seems as if Hollywood is going out of its way to avoid Asian actors, when movies based on mangas are cast with white leads (see: “Speed Racer” and “Dragonball”), Asian movies being remade with white actors (“Oldboy”), and white actors actually playing Asians (“Cloud Atlas” and “The Last Airbender”).
Yeun’s first film role, as a scientist and best friend to Michael Pitt in “I Origins,” is a good start. The part doesn’t cast him as a nerdy sidekick, as so many other scripts call for; Yeun’s Kenny is a smart and slick core character who offers a lot of the comic relief in Mike Cahill‘s very serious film, undercutting the self-seriousness that Pitt presents.
The freedom to choose how he’d play a character — in this instance, he wanted Kenny to be refined — is not a luxury that Asian actors often enjoy. So instead of scouring scripts and casting calls for chances to quietly tweak cliches, Yeun is simply developing his own material.
First comes an adaptation of Kang Chol-Hwan’s memoir “The Aquariums of Pyongyang,” which among other htings, details the author’s childhood years living in a North Korean concentration camp. Yeun will executive produce and star in the film, playing the author.
There are several other projects in the pipeline for Yeun, as well, early in development.
“We’ve been working on some comedy stuff and in cartoon form, as well,” he revealed. “And then there are some film ideas that have always been batting around my head. I just want to definitely stretch that muscle, because you can’t just wait for other people to give it to you.”
