I’m a little behind on this one, but whatevs. The critical assault against THE WALKING DEAD was directed specifically at the season premier of a few weeks back, but there is no doubt the views of the attackers has not softened since then.
I would say that censors are as stupid as zombies—mindless, shambling, motivated by only the barest trace of instinct—but that would be doing a disservice to zombies. These buffoons think they know better than you do what is good for you, and they want to take away your freedom of choice to watch what you like. The president of the “Parents Television Council” admitted that, for him and his ilk, “It’s not enough to ‘change the channel…’” Nope, these cretins want CONTROL. Of YOU.
I would say that, if a parent is letting his young kid watch THE WALKING DEAD in the first place, he’s an idiot. But no more of an idiot than these would-be savior censorship types. I wish I could transport all of them into the fictional world of THE WALKING DEAD where they could meet Negan in person, and maybe try to explain to him why his actions are “too violent.”
