I won't rehash all that's wrong with The Walking Dead but season seven continued all the bad trends. It even managed to reach new lows with Jadis and the trash people. Their implausible behaviour was only matched by the stupidity of Rick trusting them.

I could see this as an anthology series but would have little interest in revisiting Hawkins itself.
