I disliked pretty much everything in that article. The guy is forcing these stupid jokes in almost every line. He says he likes the show but he's bashing EVERYTHING about the show. I was annoyed through the whole thing.
I did find this bit funny though:
One other thing happened back at the prison: Near the end of the episode, The Poor Guy Who Plays Rick gave a speech to the group about how he needed to lean on others more (and stop over-leading). How uninspiring was it? Halfway through, AMC broke out some Rudy music to spruce it up. Didn't work. Rick finished the crappy speech, then walked off without letting anyone else weigh in. Again, I want to start leaning on you guys more. But before you have a chance to respond, I'm out of here. What an ass. I wish Carl would accidentally kill him already.
Edit: This is the first thing I've read from this person, so I have no basis, but being that I don't like 90% of this article. I probably wouldn't like anything else from him.
I was reading the comments on that article and this one was the first that stood out, and is right near my view:
I really like your writing Simmons, but this write up was lack-luster. I'm not really sure why you put the acting in Lost so much higher than this show, though I do think several characters in Lost were superbly acted. My main issue is that you seem to miss the depth of the characters and the moral dilemmas they face in WD. Rick is a honorable man, though he has done some difficult and terrible things. His dilema is not that he has no spine, but that he is still struggling to be good and stay human. The governor does not need to protect the people, he needs the people to protect him, so he can continue to be a monster. I could go on. You say you like the show, but that seems questionable from the write-ups you've done. I'm not sure if you are just trying to be funny, which you are usually very successful at, or if you genuinely don't like the show. The article seems back handed, at best. I love how everyone is sticking up for how hot the actress is who plays Maggie. "I'm not fantasizing about someone I'll never meet that isn't smokin hot!" Gotta love cognitive dissonance in action. Just cheer up, Bill. GOT is back next week.
