The Walking Dead Scene Fans Crowned As The Worst-Looking In The Series

At this point, everyone knows what they're getting into when watching "The Walking Dead." Humanity is slowly rebuilding amid a zombie outbreak, the heroes face conflicts both internal and external, and now and again, the undead masses roaming the Earth give them a bit of trouble. This has been the recipe the series built its legacy — and now a small-screen franchise — on, and most viewers still can't get enough as the 11th and final season nears its conclusion. Sure, it might come across as formulaic at times, but there's plenty to admire about "TWD" all the same.

One of the strongest elements of "The Walking Dead" is undoubtedly the aesthetic. The show presents us with a dark, sad world that's nearly drained of all hope, so the typically drab, desaturated look couldn't be more appropriate. Most of the characters dress accordingly, making it so that when someone as colorful and bold as Juanita "Princess" Sanchez (Paola Lázaro) shows up, it's a welcomed visual change of pace. Not to mention, the work put into making the decaying walkers is astounding and ranks with the very best zombie makeup jobs out there.

At the same time, for as consistent and often impressive as the look of "The Walking Dead" is, that's not to say that it hasn't missed the mark before. According to fans, this specific scene is the least visually appealing so far.

Fans think Rick Grimes' observation of the Heaps looked atrocious

"The Walking Dead" Season 7 introduced viewers to the Scavengers: a bizarre faction of apocalypse survivors that resided in a garbage-covered landscape called the Heaps. They stayed out of the affairs of others groups, instead looking out for themselves alone in an increasingly dangerous world. Nevertheless, the show's longtime protagonist, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), visited the Heaps, and when he did, the moment presented viewers with one of the single most off-putting greenscreen shots in the history of the program. All these years later, fans still can't stand it.

Reddit user jodlad4 brought the moment back up to the "Walking Dead" community and referred to it as "Possibly the worst looking shot in the series." Countless of their fellow fans agreed wholeheartedly as they tried to pinpoint where exactly the scene went wrong. Meanwhile, some built a case for a potentially even more infamous moment: the CGI deer from Season 7's "Say Yes." The "animal" doesn't score much screen time, and considering how it looks, that's for the best. As noted by NME, it looked like a bad video game render, and the "TWD" fandom was more than happy to poke fun at it.

One could easily comb through every "Walking Dead" episode and pick out some visually questionable scenes, but it stands to reason that Rick overlooking the Heaps — and even the CGI deer — won't be topped.
