Well, that was pretty great. One of the best seasons of the entire show and I can honestly say I enjoyed every episode. It seems a change of showrunner can make all the difference - thanks Angela Kang. Rick's exit was really well done - I do understand the helicopter cop-out gripes - and it led to a well placed time-jump. The season constantly felt fresh and actually had consistent story-telling and a formidable villain in the Whisperers, namely Alpha.
I liked all the new characters and actually thought Henry was a lot better than Carl - Lydia and her identity crisis was very well handled and Morton was excellent throughout. The Calm Before was a necessary gut-punch, and produced one of the most shocking moments I've seen on TV for awhile - the score was incredible, too. The finale was also very beautifully done, and it was a change of pace to actually have snow incorporated. Can't believe I'm saying it...but here's to season 10!
Yes, The Walking Dead is the zombie soap opera I haven't given up on yet. In Season 9 they breathed new life into the show with a time jump, transitions in lead characters and a new villian! But I am only giving this release from Best Buy- 4 stars because they didn't offer an exclusive lenticular Best Buy version of the cover. I have tediously went out of my way to collect and in some cases re-purchase some seasons just to have a complete lenticular collection of Blu-rays and Best Buy stopped doing them?! Why Best Buy, why?
Well the guy on the cover ..... no spoilers here.
I just think the series is trying to wrap up and end.
So... with that said this season was not my favorite and many others feel the same as I do... that the show has lost direction and what made it great seems to have been forgotten.
Oh well all good things come to an end sooner or later.
I purchased to complete my collection of the series.
Season 9 of TWD feels like The Walking Dead again. After the previous 2 seasons slowed things down to get through the Savior's War season 9 gets back to the action and horror that made the show popular in the first place
I can always count on Best Buy for the best products and the best service. The dvd is in inaccurate news condition and the professionalism with helping me get it was without question! Amazing! I love the walking dead and have every season and all my collection was purchased at Best Buy!
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
This bone chilling,crunching, and very much so thrilling season of great characters you love to see are back for more. This time meeting a threat. Something like never never before. Can they survive. Only way to know is to pick up the season. In my opinion the show was good.
Season 9 was one of the best season for TWD to date. As we all know the previous 2-3 seasons has been slow, boring, and repetitive. Too bad this season 9 wasn't available in BestBuy's exclusive lenticular sleeve cover.
I am a 9 year Walking Dead Fan! This 9th Season is one to watch again and again! The Series just keeps getting better and better!! If you're not a fan yet, this Series will get you started for sure. You'll just have to start from Season 1 and work your way up from there to get the full picture of this Outstanding Series!!
