Michael, my wife and I commented that these people felt like it had been 200 years since the zombie apocalypse not 7 years, with the rituals and the pigeon English.

Not even 7 years, in series time.

But I think a peculiar dialect could develop in an isolated place in a relatively short span of time.

Heck, I watch SLING BLADE and I'm talking like Karl for days.

I don't trust the female leader.  Anyone who has time to get their eyebrows shaped / waxed in the post apocalypse...

But I trust Jesus even though he's obviously hoarding every bottle of
conditioner left over in the zombie apocalypse behind everyone's
backs.

When we last saw Judith, she wasn't even a toddler yet, so it's only
been a little under two years since the zombie outbreak.

Which is crazy, right?  A friend and I were discussing the timeline just a couple of days ago.  SO MUCH has happened in the span of under two years that, at times, it feels hard to believe.  Not enough to sour me on the series, but just enough to give me pause.

But surely Carl has aged more than two years?

Last night's episode constant threat of Negan and the torture porn of him doing something crazy - holy cow, I did not see that coming! - is starting to become too much. It wasn't like this in the early episodes. Almost feels like it is trying too hard to shock.

Enjoyed last Sunday's Rick and Michonne-centric show, though the seeming death of Rick at the hands of the carnival walkers was too familiar not to suss as untrue given the similar way Glenn cheated death under the dumpster.  I assume it was the deer that the walkers devoured, though they didn't seem to show that too clearly.   In general the scale of the carnival and walkers there was one of the more elaborate set pieces in a while and had an agreeably creepy, haunted vibe. 

Nevertheless, the ratings have consistently declined this year and are now at a level not seen since season two.  The show still gets enviable numbers and isn't yet in danger of cancellation but the trend is worrisome (viewership peaked in season five and has seen regular and significant decreases.)  Kirkman's professed desire to get to season 12 now is less than certain.

There were several call back moments in that episode. It was intentionally done. Since it was the producers intentions on calling back to memory previous events that had happened I'm okay with it.

I was wondering how Rick and Michonne would get their stash back without being intercepted by the Saviours? Or, if they can move about freely, why don't they just all leave. They could set up at the army base with dodgy roof!

For a "grounded" take on the zombie genre, TWD has always had dodgy story consistency. Still wondering how Sohpia ended up in Herschel's barn.

Sophia was one of the walkers grabbed and penned up by Otis, in hopes of discovering a cure one day.

The Saviors aren't constantly guarding the communities they steal from; they make a show of force here and there and step down hard on any sign of trouble, but it doesn't look like they have spies posted. Negan probably *should* have done that..

And the story here isn't all that much more inconsistent than any long-form series. There are things that make less sense than others. (For one, gasoline degrades if not stored properly; most of the cars they find wouldn't have useful gas in them two years later, much less batteries that would turn over.)
