  • Welcome to watch Mojo.

  • And today we're counting down our picks for the top 10.

  • Things that led to the rise and fall of the walking dead.

  • Just made me feel better.

  • Don't don't let it go to your head.

  • Let's start over for this list We're looking at why fans fell in love with the zombie show and what made some people turn away from it.

  • Since we'll be talking about events from the 1st 10 seasons of the show, beware of massive spoilers ahead and let us know what you adore or despise about the walking dead in the comments below Number 10.

  • Unique and terrifying zombies rise.

  • The walkers made a huge impression when they first stumbled onto the screen.

  • They looked gruesome, sounded terrifying and felt like they could exist as a threat in the real world and unique walkers like the Bicycle Woman show, the creators could remix the traditional look of the undead creatures.

  • We were used.

  • Thio.

  • The combination of mind blowing makeup and great acting from the people playing walkers immediately drew us into this new world.

  • The walking dead zombie effects were so good that the show won two Emmys for outstanding achievement in prosthetic makeup.

  • Thea Amount of effort it took to create these walkers had us coming back every episode to see what the crew would come up with next.

  • Yeah, number nine Small and relatable Stakes rise.

  • The Walking Dead's first episode finds Rick Grimes waking up from a coma in the midst of the zombie Apocalypse after finding that his wife, son and best friend are part of a group of survivors.

  • Rick tries his best to keep them all together as the world around them falls apart.

  • This simple set up allowed for a lot of complex drama supposed to make me feel better.

  • Don't.

  • It was fascinating to watch Rick and his crew grapple with whether they were doing right by the world and each other while trying to survive.

  • They made us question what we would do if we were in their shoes.

  • It ain't hard, man.

  • The right choice is the one that keeps us alive.

  • It's always the same with you except the forced moments.

  • It's whenever you're put to the test, stop acting like you know the way ahead, like you know the rules.

  • There are no rules.

  • Man were lost.

  • The Siri's commitment to exploring the moral and practical problems of a zombie apocalypse immediately made the show compelling.

  • You once said Way Don't kill the living well.

  • That was before the living tried to kill us.

  • Number eight.

  • Casting relatively unknown actors Rise.

  • It's better this way.

  • What ISS.

  • Before 2010 casual audiences probably would not have recognized most of the cast.

  • While some people may have remembered Norman Reedus from Boondocks Saints or seen Andrew Lincoln and Love, actually the show is full of relatively unknown actors.

  • Since the cast wasn't that recognizable, it was easier for fans to see the actors as the characters they portrayed.

  • It really felt like Norman Reedus was the capable in dirt covered Darryl.

  • It's gonna be the brain.

  • Did you all know nothing?

  • The actors were so tied to their characters that the show felt more like a documentary than a fictional drama.

  • And it also didn't hurt that all the actors were extremely talented.

  • By relying on great unknowns, the creatives gave us a fantastic cast that we could easily get invested in.

  • I told you so.

  • Now you're getting cocky, huh?

  • Number seven.

  • Roshown Rise.

  • When Michelle on first appeared on the show, she was presented as a cold, katana wielding Walker slayer.

  • While she was always dynamic in a fight, her characters reluctance to show vulnerability, made her personality feels static and underdeveloped.

  • Really?

  • Yeah, but everything changed when machine started dating.

  • Rick fans finally got to see the gentle and loving side of her character.

  • Seeing me shown balance.

  • Her responsibilities as a mother with her duty to cut down enemies that threatened her family made her feel more three dimensional.

  • Fine, right, This is it.

  • It has to me.

  • Their relationship had the added bonus of softening the harder edges Rick had developed over the Siri's.

  • Overall, the adorable Roshown ship gave a lot of humanity to the characters who needed it the most.

  • I can't lose you.

  • Number six.

  • Departing from the source material rise.

  • While the show began as a nearly shot for shot adaptation of the comic, the creators didn't hesitate to make some significant changes.

  • You're putting every single one of us at risk.

  • Just know that, Rick, Come on.

  • You saw that Walker.

  • It was here.

  • It was in camp instead of abruptly being killed off Rick's best friend, Shane stirs up trouble throughout season to let us do this.

  • That we could talk.

  • But you wanna talk about Rick?

  • These things ain't sick.

  • They're not people.

  • They're dio ain't gotta feel nothing cos all they dio.

  • Carol also survives the prison arc that claimed her comic book counterpart, and despite never appearing on the page, Daryl Dixon was created to break hearts and performed badass feats on the show.

  • These changes kept comic book fans engaged because they couldn't predict what would happen next.

  • And Daryl and Carol became so popular toe all audiences that the duo is getting a spinoff show.

  • Let's start over.

  • Thes relatively small departures from the source material had hugely positive payoffs for the Siri's number.

  • Five.

  • Frank Darabont Leaving the Show Fall in This New World is ugly.

  • It's Hershey's survival of the fittest.

  • Former show runner Frank Darabont spent years developing the first season of the Walking Dead.

  • Fans have him to thank for the show's unique cinematography, grim tone and the unforgettable pilot episode.

  • But after Darabont clashed with AMC over budgetary in creative issues, he and the network had a nasty break up even before Season two aired.

  • Well, I guess if this is the first you're hearing it, I know how it must sound.

  • While it's hard to say how different the show would have been had he stayed, his firing definitely had one major negative effect.

  • Jeffrey Demon, who played the moral compass character Dale, demanded his character be killed off in the wake of Darabont's firing.

  • The loss of a major character and it's showrunners so early on wasn't a great omen for the walking dead.

  • Uh huh, Sorry, Brother Number four.

  • Creating slow and overstuffed plot lines fall as the walking dead seasons got longer.

  • The writers were tasked with stretching out overarching plot lines while keeping things interesting.

  • But despite their best efforts, a decent number of episodes failed to develop characters or push the plot forward.

  • The slow pace of the story only got worse as the cast ballooned.

  • We haven't come up with a single viable option yet.

  • I wish we could.

  • Let's work on it.

  • Stop it.

  • While the show only followed Rick Screw in Season one, fans today have to keep track of the names and motivations of everyone in Alexandria Oceanside and hilltop.

  • Don't let it go to your head.

  • They also have to familiarize themselves with the whisperers and every new character that appears.

  • The sheer cast size and slow pace could make episodes a chore to get through.

  • Watching a zombie show shouldn't require a glossary of characters and a cup of coffee.

  • Number three.

  • Too many fake out deaths fall.

  • Oh ah, good fake out Death can shock the audience while giving them a deeper appreciation for the character they thought was lost.

  • But if this story technique is used too often, viewers start to resent the writers for constantly tricking them.

  • Audiences will also have trouble believing that people can actually die.

  • Yeah, while nearly every main character has experienced a couple of fake out deaths, the king of false demises is Glenn.

  • After nearly killing him off half a dozen times, the writers tried to convince us he was dead for three episodes before revealing he was hiding under a dumpster.

  • While fans were relieved to see him, they were still frustrated with the writers for their over reliance on this cheap scare tactic Number two, The Negan Cliffhanger fall gonna pee pee pants City here really soon.

  • Remember what we said about fake out deaths?

  • Well, the Season six finale left fans with the most infamous one of the Siri's in the final minutes.

  • Negan plays any meeny miny moe to determine who he will dispatch with his bat.

  • But just as his victim is about to be revealed, the screen cuts to black.

  • You can breathe.

  • You could blink, you can cry.

  • Hell, you're all gonna be doing that.

  • Fans were infuriated.

  • They had to wait until next season to find out who perished.

  • And to add insult to injury, Abraham and Glen were both killed off in tremendously violent ways.

  • In the season seven premiere.

  • It seems like you're trying to speak, but you just took a hell of a hit.

  • The reaction was so negative that future episodes were reedited to tone down the brutality.

  • But for some fans, the walking dead had already crossed the line.

  • It was a joke that bad.

  • Before we unveil our topic, here are some honorable mentions.

  • Rise, expanding zombie lore concepts like zombie camouflage became popular fall.

  • Andrew Lincoln's departure from the show fans weren't ready to let Rick go for the peace knows my name endlessly.

  • I found even more, but I ate it.

  • What was it?

  • 112 ounces of putting, but that light faded in Season eight.

  • After being bitten during the Saviors war, Carl chose to end his life in the mid season premiere this shocking twist had disastrous consequences for the walking dead's public opinion.

  • Mean, was this the plan?

  • Eyes.

  • It's supposed to be this way.

  • Three episode that followed the midseason premiere had two million fewer viewers.

  • And while the Siri's has tried to replace him with young characters like Henry and Judith, they haven't been able to fill the void that Karl left.
