Just discovered this and wow, what a series! We've watched all of GOT and Grimm so needed a new one to tide us over. This just happened to be featured on Netflix so we thought we'd give it a go.

We've watched the first 3 seasons back to back and about to start season 4 grin

I recently bought an Amazon Fire stick so DS has persuaded me to watch it.
Currently I'm only up to season 2 episode 5, but loving it! I'm having to have a daily fix!

I am counting down the days until it's back on! Z nation is actually a bit of light relief compared to the dark moments of the walking dead but I honestly got so excited from the trailer of the new season a few years ago & went into labour blush

Have got some serious Daryl loving going on grin

CattDamon Mon 18-Jul-16 20:55:58

Daryl needs some action next season.

another one here! love it, few episodes into season 4. dh will only watch one every other night whilst i could quite happily watch a few per night. it's so full on, desperately grim although love it as so many likeable characters. i also like daryl although i liked one who recently got killed (won't say who as i don't want to ruin it for the op who has only just started watching the season........)

Season 7 trailer

I don't think I'm giving anything away by saying Daryl in the entire run of the WD has not showed any interest in the ladies.

MistressMerryWeather Sat 23-Jul-16 15:17:28

Of course he has.

Carol, Beth.

Honeyandfizz Sat 23-Jul-16 15:19:52

Ooooh can I join in?? My colleagues at work have been harping on about it for ages now so I decided to watch a few episodes. I've now binged watched my way through to the end of season 4. I LOVE it. Love the way none of the characters are safe either, you just never know what's going to happen!

VoyageOfDad Sat 23-Jul-16 15:20:32

Yes but not in that way. If he'd have been into women he would surely have teamed up with Carol.

For she is an awesome beauty of kick arseness

DixieNormas Sat 23-Jul-16 15:21:42

I still don't think he was interested in Carol in that way, yes to beth though.

MistressMerryWeather Sat 23-Jul-16 15:23:15

Norman Reedus who plays Daryl was actually asked if he would mind if his character turned out to be homosexual.

He had no problem with it but said that wasn't the direction they ended up going.

Jesus's character is gay in the comics.

lanbro Sat 23-Jul-16 15:23:50

I thought Daryl and Carol had been in a relationship?! I've watched the whole thing so far, did I misunderstand?

ShotsFired Sat 23-Jul-16 15:25:23

Made my heathen boyfriend binge watch about 5 series of this in as many weeks when I found out he hadn't even heard of it, so I wouldn't have to delay watching the new series grin

He's now as excited about S7 as I am!

I complained to the Independent website last week (not the first time) about them showing a spoiler picture on their home page about who does/doesn't meet Lucille.

VoyageOfDad Sat 23-Jul-16 15:25:42

Don't think they were an item. Just mates. Carol knows he's gay but also how closeted he is.

MistressMerryWeather Sat 23-Jul-16 15:26:28

It was definitely suggested, Lanbro but I think they ended up writing them as more brother a sister to make way for the Beth storyline.

Poppiesway Sat 23-Jul-16 15:27:05

I don't know if I want to watch it. As a Grey's Anayomy also fan I can't bring my self to see Denny as Neegan 😟 Ds1 has told me not to be so silly...

MiddleClassProblem Sat 23-Jul-16 15:28:09

No, there are definite Daryl rumours but because he's not in the comics it could go anywhere!

Season two is the worst one do if you can get passed all that then you are going to have an amazing ride afterwards!

So looking forward to it coming back and a neegan crush grin

VoyageOfDad Sat 23-Jul-16 15:30:57

But there's never been any sexual tension or flirting with Daryl has there ?

I read his relationship with Beth as older brother'. And considering what a mysoginist Merl was there something about Daryl's lack of 'banter' that suggests he's different.

Sorry, I know I'm killing people's Daryl fantasies 😆

DixieNormas Sat 23-Jul-16 15:33:17

I don't think they will go with the gay story. I'm not all that keen on Carol though thought she was ok for about 10 mins in one of the later series but othee than that whiny shit stirrer. Even if she has learnt to fight

MiddleClassProblem Sat 23-Jul-16 15:33:39

Well season 6 we know carol and cookies.

I thought it was implied in the gut that Beth maybe had a crush but not reciprocated?

MiddleClassProblem Sat 23-Jul-16 15:33:53

Hut not gut

DixieNormas Sat 23-Jul-16 15:35:27

I didn't think so the first time round but the second time I watched I do think there was some thing going on there between Darryl and Beth when they were sat at the table, I think he was leading up to it
