This is not a Sanctuary: spoilers lurk below. 

There are several reasons why this season of The Walking Dead sucks. Some of those include Glenn’s fake death last season, and his real death in the first episode of this season. That Negan cliffhanger was awful, the excruciating season premiere wasn't much better, and was followed by long, boring episodes with just a few gems sprinkled in. What in the hell is going on with The Walking Dead?!

Ratings have steadily dropped since the Season 7 premiere, and how will showrunners Scott Gimple and David Kirkman stop the hemorrhaging? Maybe it’s time to seriously consider ways to improve The Walking Dead, besides more Daryl nudity. But, yeah, more Daryl nudity wouldn’t hurt.

One of the many mistakes The Walking Dead is making is that it’s simply not keeping up with the times. TV is the new frontier of visual storytelling, with bolder and faster paced storylines. What might have worked even five years ago, doesn’t work today. Since Kirkman first created the comic series 13 years ago, it wouldn’t be a crime to seriously deviate from the source material like other shows (cough, Game of Thrones, cough) have done, with great success. 

We need The Walking Dead to stop sucking and we need that suckage to stop now. Here are a few ways TWD could pull out of the nose dive before it crashes into a quarry filled with walkers.
