    Saw ads for the new season, I had forgotten all about it.
    I think I quit watching a couple of seasons ago, can't even remember what was going on.

    Is it worth trying to catch back up?

    No I quit a few years ago too. Dreadlock King with Tiger Pal was one step into comicbook world too far for me. I'm not saying that as a criticism of the comic ... it is a comic after all, where ridiculous **** like that belongs.

    I am still watching it. I had quite around season 4 and had to catch back up. My wife really enjoys it which is part of why I am back to it. I guess it is as good as anything else on TV. Most of the gun play is gone now though.

    I gave up after the first season. It's like a soap opera the story line skips around too much for me to follow.

    Does helicopter girl ever find her friend again? We need to see that through to conclusion, don't we?

    I’m in the season where they are fighting Negan. Seven or eight. The gunplay is so terrible and it moves slowly, in the storyline. I don’t dislike it, just don’t put the time in.

    I quit watching a few years ago when they killed off most of the original characters.

    I still watch it. I think Fear the Walking Dead passed it up as the better show a couple of seasons back, but they are still the only regular network TV shows I watch.

    I watched 2 or 3 seasons but got tired of a group running around to a safe place, zombies come and kill a bunch of people, they run to another safe place, meet new people, zombies come....rinse and repeat. Don't miss it.

    I was sick for a couple days and watched season 8 and 9. SSDD or season, nothing to look forward to and absolutely no growth in the story. I'll watch it again when I'm sick and need something that doesn't take much brain power to comprehend.

    I chose to stop watching at the end of Season 8 (I think) where things seemed to be at a good place to stop. After what Negan put them through I don't want to see any more betrayals and loss of characters I sort of care about.

    I quit long ago after realizing that every human character could take out any walker with a single bullet to the head (one shot/one kill), but when humans were squared off against each other, nobody could hit squat in the spray and pray mode.

    I quit watching it about three years ago...

    nobody can be that stupid 5 years into a situation like that and you STILL haven't learned anything about how to operate? Like, I don't know, carry more than one magazine? Never go anywhere alone? Corrugated tin does not stop bullets?

    It just got too stupid for me.

    I had been watching it, but I drifted away a few years ago. Nothing against the show itself, but I tend to lose interest in a long, continuous story when I have to wait 6 months, or more, between seasons.

    Once the series ends, I'll probably start over and watch it all the way through.

    It’s still the only show I regularly watch.

    I am looking forward to the new season.
