With some Coriolanus-quality torture porn.

It's Black Adder without the Adder.

Hating Game of Thrones is the new hipster craze.

New? Hating on Game of Thrones has been part of the Game of Thrones fandom since the beginning.

I figured you would have been into the latest season. They went far more CW with storytelling. More relationships, faster moving storylines, a characters evolving via dialogue dumps instead of showing.

They could not have taken more cues from The 100.

Damn! "I figured you'd like it since it's more like The CW" is one of the harshest things I've ever seen on this site.

I was getting immensely bored with TWD but stuck around out of curiosity to see if it got better, but when they kept Chris Hardwick on for Talking Dead I bailed for good.

So, wait, it's good now because it adopted some trashy ass CW tropes? I mean, I've been saying all along that a zombie show that's barely spackled over conservative porn should really embrace that it's trash and stop fronting that it's got any substance, so hearing they actually did so is validating.
