I was a huge fan of the Franchise. I watched season 1 to 6 of TWD with care. Got bored by the mess it became with seasons 7 & 8 (show runner Scott Gimple). Season 9 (show runner Angela Kang) was good imo. I didn't enjoyed much Fear season 1. I liked season 2B a lot. And I LOVED season 3 : Fear found it way, and the Clark Family was so interesting. Season 3 even made Madison (the mother) likable and complex (it wasn't an easy task, as much of the fans - I included - really disliked her during season 1 & 2) Then Dave Erickson (Fear show runner) was let go, and Scott Gimple (promoted by AMC to overlook the licence) came over and brought the worst show ruiners we could not even imagine : Andrew Chambliss & Ian Goldberg. By the way AMC, good job replacing ONE competent guy buy TWO dumb guys with no skills. They literally made the show unwatchable. I really gave up with Season 5B... All the characters behave differently. There is no big plot, and the littles ones are at best annoying, at worst incoherent. I can't call hat plots. It's just situations that make no sense. And there is no more "Fear" factor. A zombie show that inspire no fear ? Yes, we can be grateful to Ian & Andrew for the worst TV I have ever watched. By the way, let's call them Iandrew as I don't want to waste time spelling both their names. Iandrew came from Once Upon A Time (a show that I actually loved for its first season. Really, It was clever, coherent, with a a great plot. Season 2 lost me. But it's an other story) and for some reason, they gave us a Disney version of what a Zombie show could be. Well, I'm open minded. I am not again an optimistic approach of the genre. But their approach was not optimistic. It was simply dumb (some may say "gimply dumb"). Season 5 felt like an insult to intelligence. Not only fans of the show are outraged, but the critics - worldwide - are very bad. What does AMC do ? They renew the show for a new season, with the same idiotic team. Does AMC stands for "All Made Cheap" ? Anyway, as websites reported it, a petition has been created online, hoping AMC will realize it's absolutely a necessity to fire those show ruiners. AMC waited to years for TWD to get a new one. And now it's been 2 years that we - fans - are suffering from this horrible show that Fear has become. I really think it's damaging an already damaged licence/Franchise/Brand as a whole. So please, if you can, take a little of your time and help us to save a dying show : https://www.change.org/p/amc-entert...erickson-5d48a96f-458d-435c-9a08-08a3f43076bf By the way, I would LOVE to work at AMC. It's the only company I know that actually promotes a guy that literally sucked at his job (Scott Simple).
