    The Walking Dead: It's Time to Stop Hating Carl Grimes

    http://undeadwalking.com/2016/01/24/...g-carl-grimes/



    Yup, I totally agree with this very fine article. Embrace #CarlGrimes! Love him! This kid is the MVP of the ZA.

    While it doesn't bother me that some people hate him (full disclosure, I will side eye you though), I never understood the hate. And especially after this



    It's definitely about time people stop hating on Carl Grimes.

    I personally have never hated on the little sheriff. He's one of my faves.

    I hated him back when he was still really a kid (Season 2 to 3) but now, I don't.

    I never thought the character on the show was bad at all. It was a young kid in the middle of hell. And Chandler Riggs was a young kid when he started and has only gotten better, aside from Rick he's probably had more screen time than anybody. Nobody on this show is burnin up the emmy nods so I'd say he standing on his own with the likes of Darryl and Glenn.

    Great article, thanks for sharing @Parabox. As you know I've always loved Carl, particularly his bond with Michonne and I've never understood the dislike for his character. He is a very realistic portrayal of a child growing up in the ZA, and a necessary example of how a young person would cope in a world like that, as well as serving as an interesting contrast to child characters like Sophia who was normal and panicked which got her killed, and Lizzie who snapped and developed sociopathic behaviour (although it's possible this started before the outbreak.) Either way, he's an interesting character and central to the story, I'll always appreciate his role in the show.

    Yes, I agree with this article. Really I want to even say it's time for the actual show to give his character more love. Part of the reason he is so underrated is because of the lack of focus given to his character. I still wish they would have explored how the attempted rape by the Claimers affected him and given him more than the love triangle built simply to pad the story and justify Ron's eventual snap.
