“The Walking Dead” to end at a two part 11th season and will have two more spinoff shows… interesting…

As a huge fan of the Walking Dead, I’m actually excited for this. “The Walking Dead”, the AMC’s hit horror/drama show will end at Season 11 with a two part season. The final two-part season will be a total of 24 episodes.

I kind of predicted that the show will end real soon since Andrew Lincoln left and the show can’t survive without him. The main TWD show is ending soon probably ’cause of declining ratings? Probably. I think Andrew Lincoln will return as Rick Grimes for the two part 11th season, though. There will be a point somewhere in that show where Rick will reunite with Michonne, Daryl and Carol and the rest of the gang that are still left.

This won’t be the end of TWD completely, though ’cause AMC just announced two more spinoff shows. They just announced that Daryl and Carol are getting their own spinoff show that will star them so that’s a clear sign that AMC don’t plan on killing off those two characters in Season 11. Seems like Norman Reedus isn’t done playing Daryl yet ’cause he seems to love that character and is dedicated to playing that character. Another spinoff show is called “Tales of the Walking Dead” which will feature new characters and new stories.

It’s going to be interesting to see how the show is going to end at Season 11. I wouldn’t be surprised that when they brick Rick Grimes back, they actually kill him off this time… it’ll be the perfect way to end the show.

What about Negan? The character Negan played by the great Jeffrey Dean Morgan is a good-guy on the show but I think we haven’t seen the last of evil and murderous Negan. I think evil Negan will comeback before the show gets off the air. The reason Negan was turned to good ’cause evil Negan turned off a lot of fans but I loved evil Negan, though. The evil Negan was very dark and he was a good villain you really wanted to hate and despise. Evil Negan was short but I think he’ll make a true return. That should be the way the show should end, in my opinion. Rick Grimes vs. Negan the rematch??? I’m all for it. Negan tries to reform the Saviors and gets even more power.

Even though I’m all caughtup with the Walking Dead on Netflix, I’m still waiting for Season 10 to get on there. I’ll also get around to watching the other Walking Dead spin-off, “Fear of the Walking Dead” sometime.

Don’t be surprised that the rest of the Walking Dead main show could kill off more important characters like Michonne. They could finally kill of Maggie too. Aaron is another character I can see getting killed off. What about the character, Morgan? Him too… I think the actor who plays Morgan whose name is Lennie Jones will come back to Season 11, yes.

I remember when TWD started, I bailed after Season 3 and stopped watching then I got back into it on Netflix ’cause I wanted to see the Negan character. Yes, the Negan character definitely got me watching again and glad I got back into it.

Will I watch the new Walking Dead season in Oct??? I’m thinking about giving up on this show…

I’ll admit it that I was very disappointed with the last season of the Walking Dead. The writing has gotten really bad… even Daryl couldn’t save the show. Last time I checked, this is supposed to be, “The Walking Dead”. Not “The Suck Daryl Dixon’s Dick” show. The whole point of the books were the stories which is what the show is missing. All the craziness of Daryl Dixon is overshadowing the storytelling part of the show. Crazy stupid and pretentious fans. Daryl wasn’t a character in the books and the stories can get really good without him. The books were so much better than the lame TV show. Even if the writing is bad, the makers at AMC are doing whatever it takes to give Daryl a lot of screen time so they can keep the show on the air. Daryl is what keeps the show going. Without him, the show’s ratings will tank and it’ll cancel mid-season probably. So they are probably never gonna kill Daryl off. If they do, I can see angry fans starting petitions or starting rallies to bring Daryl back. Don’t get me wrong. Norman Reedus is a fantastic actor and Daryl is a cool character but they really need to focus on the stories.

I was also disappointed with the direction of the Michonne and Andrea storyline went to last year. Rick going all psychotic and weird was pretty lame as well. Also, The Governor is not menacing enough. If you read the books, you would see that the Governor is a lot more nastier and even more menacing.

Not sure if I’ll continue to watch the “Walking Dead” this year.

At least the writing for “Breaking Bad” and “Dexter” has gotten really good this year. Those two shows are pretty strong. “The Walking Dead” however, has gone way downhill for me. Maybe I’ll try to watch the first couple of episodes this season but if I see they haven’t improved, I’ll stop watching then. It just gotten really boring.

Film Of The Day: The Boondock Saints

Happy St. Patty’s. I thought today would be a great day to do an Irish film. The first “Boondock Saints” was really good. The sequel was okay, but the first one was very well made. It stars Sean Patrick Flanery, and Norman Reedus (Daryl in, “The Walking Dead”). It also stars Willem Dafoe.

The film tells the story about twin Irish brothers, who accidentally kills a bunch of thugs. Later, they see it as a calling from God, so they end up killing even more thugs. Willem Dafoe’s character, Det. Paul Smecker, starts to investigate the crimes, but the closer he is to catch the Irish brothers, the more he thinks they just did the right thing.

I first saw this movie on Netflix. I believe it was one of the first movies I watched on Netflix when I first got my account. The writing was really good, and it was a very entertaining, and funny film. True Irish film, indeed. When you watch a film like this, you can tell it was done Irish style. It’s also a great action movie. No car chases. No explosions. You will see a movie full of gun shooting, all the way through. It can get violent. Gory. Plus, Willem Dafoe definitely steals the show. This was one of his best roles in his career.

I’m actually thinking about re-watching this film on Netflix today. It’s still streamable I believe.

Thought: Is Merle Dixon alive or dead? ***possible spoilers***

Merle Dixon (played by the great, Michael Rooker, pictured above) is an original character exclusively for the TV show, “The Walking Dead”. Merle was never a character from the comic books at all. That is why nobody knows anything about Merle and why they are keeping this character mysterious. Merle returned for one episode this season but Daryl was just having a hallucination, it wasn’t really him.

Michael Rooker is a great actor. I’ve remembered him in other movies. His most recognizable movie role would have to be in Stallone’s movie, “Cliffhanger”, back in 1993. It’s nice to see him finally get recognized for his talent in, “The Walking Dead”.

The question we’re all wondering, is Merle Dixon still alive or dead? Maybe he’s even a walker?

I would think Merle is still alive.

When Merle is found alive, another question we’re all wondering, will he get revenge at T-Dog for leaving him up on the roof of the Dept. store in Atlanta? I used to think Merle would come back to get revenge against Rick & his friends, but it’s not going to happen.

I would think Merle would side with Rick and the gang. It’s Daryl that Merle would be after. Remember that hallucination that Daryl had on Merle, it seemed that they don’t get along too well. Why would Merle want to side with Rick and them? Remember, when Merle was handcuffed and the walkers were trying to get out after him, Merle kept screaming, “I’ve been bad, I deserve it…” blah blah blah…. Merle would admit that he was wrong on how he treated them and Merle might help them a bit.

It’s possible that Merle will not be the villain of the show. Rick would want to team with Merle ’cause Merle is an expert gunman. There’s something about Daryl that he will turn into the villain instead of Merle.

I’m probably gonna be wrong on this prediction but it’s a guess. Daryl was never exactly friends with Rick and his gang anyway. The only reason Daryl sided with Rick, ’cause they would help him find Merle, ’cause they’re family.

Merle could end up being a badguy through out the rest of the show, but it wouldn’t make any sense if you think about it. After seeing that scene with Merle and Daryl together. It’s a possibility Merle could have a change of heart with Rick and the gang, and join them. Just my 2cents.
