The Walking Dead Season 7 Premiere Pushed Boundaries with Violent Content
  • The Walking Dead Premiere Episode Pushed Boundaries with Violent Content

The premiere of season 7 of the Walking Dead has fans frustrated to the verge of quitting the show and parents retaliating against the violent content

As apparent from the name, The Walking Dead was never the mushy, cheesy kind of a show. From days one, we have witnessed some of the goriest and bloody violence happen on the show and while it is taxing on the senses, it has become a fan favourite around the world.

Last season, the fans were left wondering which member of the group will get the bat in the premiere of the season 7. Based on the comic that the series is based on, the probable guess was Glenn.

What kind of made it worse was that the showrunner Gimple and creator Kirkman built the episode in which the fans had to face more anticipation before the final blow was made on the head of Abraham.

Totally blindsided by the choice and left in numb shock, they were shocked yet still that that was not the end. After Daryl’s outburst, Negan decided that one more needed to die to teach them a lesson.

In equally if not more brutal fashion, Glenn went too. Two major deaths in one premiere episode might have seemed a great idea to Gimple and Kirkman to create effect but fans were left flabbergasted.

Many people posted on their Twitter feeds that they might quit the show. The gist of their tweets was that the show had become a bloody rampage rather than entertainment. It was not bearable for them anymore.

Critics also called out the show for concentrating too much on the violence which took away from the story of the show. The Parents Television Council are concerned about the violence.

They stated that the level of violence exhibited on the show made it unwatchable with family. The said that they won’t want AMC to be shut down.

The show gave the warning TV-MA in the beginning but it seemed to have pushed on those boundaries. They said that it had made them consider whether a higher rating than MA was required to warn people about such content.
