OK even if you do not like zombie movies you may like this.  I missed it when the first six episodes came on.  I DVRd them and finally got around to watching them.  Most of it is shot in and around Atlanta.  Do yourself a favor and watch the first couple episodes.

Great fudgeing show.  About the only thing to come out in the past year that I've even had a remote interest in watching.

I watched the first season and freaking loved it.  I did hear though, that the producer fired all the writers as soon as the season ended.  It should be interesting to see how different season 2 will be.  It is tabbed for 13 episodes, I believe.

When the hot blonde one got gnawed on I was super pissed.  Why?  She should have stuck around.

And the wife?  What a hoor. She didn't do a lot of grieving before she turned to humping.  And another thing.  You know somebody in that camp would have tipped Sheriff Daddy off that his wife was charming his buddy's cobra.

Be interested to see where it goes, too.  It sort of veered off into Omega Man territory near the end of the run.  I liked the first three episodes better than the rest.  The first two were outstanding.

Yeah and there's only one thing to do when you kill off a hot blonde...find a hotter red-head.
I rank it only with Jerico for now because it has the same feel (two main players) and it could still bomb. We already see that some more characters needed to be developed during the lulls because the horny wife tryst with Cain and Abel can only take us so far. I'm encouraged by the firings. Maybe there is still some hope for this one.

There are a lot of good shows on now (none on network TV which is a story unto itself).  As a result I found myself largely underwhelmed by this show last night.  There are so many shows which have stepped up to the plate that this no longer stood as tall.  It wasn't bad, but....

OK, I resisted, but Jarhead and Sani talked me into this.

I love those guys.

I watched the first four episodes last night after the kids went to bed.  Actually, after watching the first five minutes of the first episode, I paused the DVR and went in and made DAMN SURE the kids were sound asleep.  THEN I watched the first four episodes.  I was up until 1am.  Feel like walking dead today - but worth it. 

It's The Stand with zombies instead of killer flu.  Cannot wait to see the rest of it tonight.

I may actually enter the contest to be a stagger on cast member - I would LOVE to be a zombie extra!!!  FUN FUN FUN.

I'm really, really not feeling this season at fudgeing all. 

I'm on the borderline of abandoning it entirely.  I've definitely got better things to do than waste time with this drizzly soap opera shoot.   New writers suck zombie ass.  Gooey zombie ass, in fact.  I'm giving it one more episode to draw me back and then I'm done with this silly shoot.   

fudge the pathos.  fudge the bitch wife and her "issues". fudge the meandering emotional plot lines.  fudge the ignorant kids.  fudge finding zombies just sitting around in a church (that was stupid).  fudge herds of zombies wandering around in circles in the high school parking lot.  It's taking too fudgeing long to get to anything of substance.  It sucks.  If I'd watched these two episodes first -- instead of the riveting pilot that began with such promise when he splattered a little girls' brains -- I would never have watched it at all. 

Extremely disappointed.  Ex.Treme.Ly.

And where the fudge does Ranger Rick keep coming up with brand new cop shirts?  Is he carrying a closet full of them around?  And why the fudge is he still wearing his badge?  Or his silly ass hat?  Or his watch?  Got somewhere to be?  Need to know the exact time. 

Whoever is writing this slow-moving stream of shoot needs to get their head out of their ass and turn Darryl loose.  Mayhem, motherfudgeers.  Do you speak it?  If not, your dwindling audience is fudgeing DONE.

Agree on the story progression.  Needs to move along.

The uniform helps reinforce to himself that humanity and society is still intact.

There is a show that comes on afterward called "Talking Dead" that claims shoot will start picking up next week.  We'll see.

I suggest our survivors syphon plenty of gas to ignite the zombies trying to get through the fence like in Dawn of the Dead. Obviously these Georgians weren't movie goers.

What does a zombie in a military helmet represent? 

The group has to stay at the vet's home anyway with two injured and one missing so why is there any rush to leave?

Season 2 does start out fairly slow...I just like giving these pansies shoot.

But it's still not that slow, in my opinion...plus it picked up some tonight.  Hopefully they'll keep increasing the tension and action from here on out.

Still creeping slowly along. 

Losing patience with this series. 

Don't give a fudge about any of the wasted story sidelines.  "yeaayhh, ahhll hayuve sey-ux witch yoo"

Shane's decline into monosyllabic grunting is idiotic. 

Who couldn't see the pregnancy coming from a million miles away.  Obvious writing, been done a million times before. Who cares.  And I hate that bitch anyway.  She needs to be bitten. 

What's the black dude using to shave his head every day?  Couldn't Rick use some of that on his face? 

I'm tired of the hats and closet full of cop gear Rick must carry with him at all times.  He's never out of a fresh sheriff's shirt. 

Why did they have to set up tents?  Couldn't they have just bunked in the barn?  That was ridiculous. 

This show is grating on my last nerve.  I'll give it another episode to see if it can get back to the general goodness that permeated the first few shows of season one, but if it keeps meandering along with the folksy backwoods doctor and his folk, I'm going to walk away. 


Dexter on the other hand showed last night why it remains a quality show five years in.  Pretty strong stuff. 

Homeland was also good although I'm a little unnerved by Carrie spreading it for Brody just to catch him at something.   

Boss with Frasier from Frasier has potential.  I like Kathleen Robertson.  Curious to see where it goes (and how it could be a multiple season effort).

Played catch-up on season 2 last night and agree that the story is dragging.  Stupid fudgeing kids.

The gross-out factor has been ratcheted up, which I generally enjoy, but it's looking like a cover for poor story-telling right now.

American Horror Story doesn't think so.  If anything it's overstuffed. 

Five seasons of The Sopranos doesn't think so either.  Neither does five seasons of Dexter.  Or four seasons of Oz. 

This series is mired in the muck.  Deeply.

Tonight's episode was a little better.  Still too much fudgeing talking in the first half, but better.

I really wish Darryl would shoot Andrea, Rick, Shane, Lori and the old man.  And shoot little Carl, too.  Then we could move on with it. 

I hate every scene Rick is in lately.  Hate every scene Shane and Lori are in.  Hate the botoxed Andrea who can't act a fudgeing lick. 

Kill 'em all. 

But no, we're going to kill the Asian guy, the hot farmer chick and probably Darryl and Dale. 

This show was better, but it's still way the fudge off the beam.  It needs to tighten up.

Another wasted episode.  And next week is the "season finale" 

I'm this far gone so I'll watch next week but I'm not coming back.  When your only motivation is hoping the main characters get killed in brutal ways -- including some kind of gruesome mutilation visited on that annoying mini-Sheriff twerp -- it's not worth it.

I disagree.  I actually thought last nights episode was much better.  Plus next week is not the season finale.  it's the mid season finale which I am not exactly sure what the fudge that means?  Must be something some jackass in marketing came up with.

I'm sick of the farm.  I'm sick of them looking for a girl who by all rights should be dead.  No way a 12-year old survives however many months it's been. If she shows up now?  I'm calling bullshoot. But you know she's going to.  I wish zombies would kill Lori, Rick, Carl, Shane and Andrea. 

The acting has devolved dramatically. 

I don't know what mid-season finale means either.  Seems stupid. 

I watched the online preview for the dramatic mid-season finale.  Guess what it is?  Four minutes of talking.  Rick and Herschel and the same tired "you don't know what it's like out there, we've seen shoot that makes you blind" speechifying. 

I'm just done with it.

Recap of the midseason finale:

"blah blah blah blah blah blah speech blah blah blah blah blah rant blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah emotional speech blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah emotional rant blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah help us with the walkers blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah smart ass kid channeling daddy blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah Dale stating something he had no way of knowing blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah"

Followed by about 3.5 minutes of a shooting gallery and a "surprise" that most probably saw coming.  What's in the barn?  Yep.  Figures. 

Nice ending but like the entire second season so far too much fudgeing talking.  Shut the fudge UP with the speechifying.  Please let Rick, Carl, Lori, Andrea and Shane get eaten by zombies. 

The last three minutes was decent enough, but not worth wading through seven episodes of yapping to get to. 

The show gets ONE episode when it returns in February.  If speeches commence again, it's over.  No more.

The only thing I thought when I watched Sophia walk out of the barn was how fudgeing pissed Rick should be with Herschel.  He let them keep going out looking for her all the while he had her in the barn.  Herschel should be the first eaten by a walker in the second-half season premiere.

Not sure he knew.  Otis was the walker keeper and was dead before the rest showed up with the Sophia mission, right?

But still, who didn't see her coming out of the barn.  When there was that hesitation I was like ... seriously?  They're going to drag this Sophia hunt out even longer?  Then she came out as expected. 

And Rick had to shoot her?  Really?

Shows up alive.  That was the condition.  If she shows up alive I'd call bullshoot. 

She was dead.  It was pretty much a given that if she showed up it would be as a walker. Once walkers were discovered in the barn it was an easy assumption that she'd be there if she was ever to be found.

You were bitching about her showing up alive, then when the opposite occurs you bitch that she shows up dead and say that it was "predictable."  I like the show, hence why I watch it.  You apparently hate it, threaten to stop watching it, but never do so.

Of course they could have just unhooked that neck thing from the bitch Shane shot and put Sophia's scrawny ass back in the barn.  A lot easier to keep one walker than a dozen.  She could have been a pet.  Maybe they can be tamed.

The last five minutes last night showed some promise again. 

I just hope all the preaching and speeching can be eliminated when it comes back in February.

Not to derail but if you're a fan of Walking Dead I'd also recommend: "We're Alive".  It's a podcast that began back in 2009 (I think) and is currently into it's 25th chapter.  Harkens back to the days of the old school radio drama in design- only it takes place in a modern day zombie apocalypse/survival story setting. 

While the fact it's broken down into 15-25 minute episodes (3 episodes a chapter) may seem a bit tedious, you can actually download/stream the entire story from iTunes and it's quite entertaining.   Well written in that there are no throwaway lines whether you realize it then or several episodes later.  Definitely worth a listen.

That's way overblown. 

Feet as a whole pretty much disgust me. 

A man should never expose his unless he's at the beach, actually on the sand or in the water (or in a shower or pool).  Men should never wear sandals of any sort and flip flops are for raging homos. 

Women should put theirs in the open if and only if they bother to care for them.  Nothing is more of a turnoff than dirty feet with cracked polish or god forbid hair toes or something. 

I do notice those that are particularly well cared for and shaped nicely, but I have no inclination to touch them or have them touch me in any way. 

As a followup, I also appreciate good taste in shoes.  I probably like shoes better than feet.  I always notice what kind of shoes a woman has on.  I also care about my own shoes.

I like to hoard shoes.  I have five or six pair of underarmour shoes still in the box in my closet and at least five pair that I alternate wearing.  Got a couple of Nikes I bought before Underarmour became my favorite.  They're still boxed too. If I find a dress shoe I like in black, I also buy it in brown.  I don't have a single pair of sandals or flip flops and I don't wear Crocs.   Got a couple of pair of sanuks.  Those are okay but only with certain types of outfits.

Although not GREAT, I do think it's pretty decent. In comparison to a similar movie, I found it more original than Pulp Fiction which has a shoot ton more cult following than Boondock. Some people swear by Pulp Fiction and consider it a top 10 all time movie.

fudge the haters. I loved it. Since the first episode too. 

I am over Dale, but whatever.  Bit part. 

The guy who plays Rick looks honest to God haunted after killing Sophia.  He is doing an amazing job.  And after the scene in the bar?  Holy shoot.  He is a total fudgeing badass.  No more upholding law and order - it's HIS law and HIS order.  The actor nailed the facial expressions and you can see the change come over the character.  Awesome.  Bodes well for the future.

If you've read the graphic comic, you would actually understand a lot more, and have more patience with the story arcs.  Having said that, they don't track completely, which keeps it interesting.  I do think that some key elements of the comic are about to show up and if so, it is gonna be SO GOOD.

I did and like Sani said, there has been a total transformation of characters. A few quick hitters:

Rick has become a bad ass after a few episodes of being a whiny fudgeer. Now his wife has taken up all that whiny shoot and then some. I would like to pistol whip Shane like a bitch. Daryl has become one of my favs because the dude tells it like it is.

Also, Sophia being a "Walker"? Who in their right mind didn't see that coming.

So I tune in the other night to see what the fuss is about.  Some guy has a dead baby wrapped up in a blanket and is trying to get it to what I gather is some type of burial ground.  He leaves the kid there and goes home to pass out in bed.  Some woman is trying to get somewhere and this dead dude keeps appearing and looks like he's trying to help her get....wherever it is.  But then the baby comes back to life and walks in Herman Munster's house and grabs a scalpel out of a bag.  Herman starts looking for the kid through the house and when it became obvious he was going to be attacked by said zombie baby with the scalpel....I turned it off. 

Dead zombie babies attacking people with scalpels give me nightmares.  I will not watch this show.

After movies like the first Halloween and Friday the 13th, "horror" flicks stopped being about suspense and simply tried to out-gore each other.  Even though those type movies were about psycho killers, they still didn't focus on seeing if they could show legs and arms being hacked off and how much blood they could show.

I was thinking about that particular scene where Glenn and Rick decide to go into town and look for the Doc and while on the way Glenn decides he wants to explore his feelings for Maggie, yada yada yada...and then you've got Rick and Lori fretting over the pregnancy and now she's been in a tragic car accident and she still has to resolve her feelings toward Shane who's fallen into the deep end...and you've got Doc Herschel falling off the wagon...and you've got Beth having a nervous breakdown with a fever when she never really got to grieve for her mother because her father, the Doc, had this delusion that her mother could be cured...and you've got Carol and Darryl's 'relationship'...and maybe Carol and Shane's relationship...it was like watching an episode of "Dallas"...with a few zombies.

It's the effing zombie apocalypse...they need to be constantly on the move...find out where that helicopter came from and was going to (in episode 2)...keep gathering food, water, clothing, ammo, guns, fuel, medicine...

And it does not take 14 hours to develop characters.

More damn bitch-super-drama.  Calm the eff down and give Beth an anti-biotic (we know that Darryl has some) or a Tylenol and put a cool towel on her head.  Let her grieve for her mother. 

But, no, that won't do, instead she has to go tearing-off after Rick in an emotional tizzy...ridiculous...and pointless.

Exactly.

It does have it's moments of zombie apocalypse reality if I can call it that but I've had just about enough of the emotional drama.  The only thing worth exploring emotionally on this glorified daytime story in my opinion is the cold, harsh view of Shane and Andrea living in a world turned to shoot or the moralistic view of Dale and Rick in spite of a world turned to shoot.  Now that's interesting...along with fighting zombies...everything else is Lifetime Movie Channel material suitable for watching while wearing footy-jammies and fuzzy slippers and drinking herbal tea.

There.  I said it.

Meh.  That's how I felt through the entire first half of this season. 

They need to get off the stupid farm.   I don't care about the farm or anybody on it.  The whole seven episode "search for Sophia" arc really wasn't worth the shooting gallery payoff.   

I like the show but what I realized last night is that there isn't anybody on the show I'm actively supporting.  Nobody moves me. 

Rick -- Too pussified and struggles to speak english.  The whole 'Hero Rick" thing is getting on my nerves.  If he had any balls he wouldn't ask Herschel for anything.  He'd bum rush the house, take it over and show him how things were gonna be. 

Lori -- Hate her.  Wish a zombie would eat her.

Andrea - No real redeeming value.  Stupid bitch most of the time. Wish her hotter sister had survived.

Shane - Caricature.  Doing his mumbling best to channel Jack from The Shining, but not getting there.

Black Guy - Just a set piece.  Live or die, don't care.

Glen - Again, don't care.  Just a piece.  Zombie eats him I'm not going to be upset.

Carl, The Boy - I WANT a zombie to munch him.  Kid pisses me off.

Herschel - Don't care what his secrets are, tired of his Sesame Street Beaker face. 

Maggie - Can't like her because her "dayum acksENT eyus saaaah BAYUD"  And she's not loving the Asian guy.  Sorry. 

Darryl - I like him the best, but he's so nasty and they make him so one dimensional it loses me.

Short-hair -  Sophia's gone.  She can leave too.

Dale - I want to like Dale but he needs a woman.  And it won't be Andrea. 


It's not a BAD show, but it just pisses me off because it could be SO much better if as said here, they hadn't hired the writing team from The Lifetime Movie Channel.

Meh.  That's how I felt through the entire first half of this season. 

They need to get off the stupid farm.   I don't care about the farm or anybody on it. The whole seven episode "search for Sophia" arc really wasn't worth the shooting gallery payoff.  
...

It's not a BAD show, but it just pisses me off because it could be SO much better if as said here, they hadn't hired the writing team from The Lifetime Movie Channel.


At this point I would trade the entire "search for Sophia" story arc for the story on how Dave and Tony (the two strangers in the bar at the end of this last episode) got from Philadelphia to Atlanta without being eaten...or worse.

But, we'll probably be stuck with Lifetime's Zombie Farmville for the rest of the season.

Last thing I'm doing in the zombie world is hiding out on a farm pissing and moaning.  I'm electing myself president and going to find Bill Murray's house. 

And why the heck is Dale still driving that ramshackle RV?  There aren't better vehicles along the way?  Get a fuel truck, damn straight.  Get a wrecker.   Hell, load an 18 wheeler down with a dozer.  Convoy.

Y'all are treating this like one of your cheezy porn movies - fudge the plot, gimme a money shot/zombie rampage.  That's fine for porn.  But this is not porn - so character development is a good thing.

Y'all are too short sighted.  Not to mention shallow as Terapin Creek.  The writers know where this is going, and if you read the graphic novels on which this is based, you can get a good idea.  And it rocks.

Merle is gonna come back for realz - bank on it.  Daryl is gonna have to choose.  And the farm is gonna be in the distance pretty soon.  The point is to create a false sense of security and "normalness" but Shane blowing up the zombies in the barn is the first step towards shattering that illusion.  The two Philly guys are the next nail in the "so much for normalcy" coffin.  If you saw the preview for next week, those bad guys have friends, and they had to come from somewhere...

And yeah, Shane saves Lori - that was on the website.  That will either create the rift between Lori and Rick that someone said it might, or it will send Shane deeper down the "Lori should be fine, to hell with Rick" thought pattern.  That's what I think will happen, because that is how the original story tracks.  If so, awesome.

I was talking with a friend today - the Philly guy had it right when he told Rick that the rules before don't apply anymore - there's a new order, and the rules for society have changed.  I think the plot arc for nearly every character gets much MUCH darker in scary places going forward.   People that can adapt will survive.  Those that can't wind up zombie food, or fodder for guys like the Philly boys.  Hence Rick's ditching the sheriff shirt and hat.  There is no rule of law anymore, and he is adapting - unwillingly, but he is adapting.  The last round between the fat guy's eyes proved that.

That did catch my eye (no pun) which is why I'm giving it just one more chance.  I'm not shallow, TW, just impatient.  I don't watch TV for sleepy, weepy, character development and emotional crises and relationship issues...I watch it to be entertained..."Star-burst for the mind" as I've referred to it before around Sani and GarMan.

Actually, this character development of which you speak is nonsense.  What we have seen has little to do with reality.  Most of the drama queenz of the bunch would have already fed the walkers...

It's also extremely unrealistic so far, and I'm not even referencing the zombie apocalypse aspect of this.  Shallow is attempting to build characters when people should be stepping up, not bitching about this one and moaning about that one in between action scenes.  That's what silly-assed soap operas are for...  But at least, they found Sophia.  That one had me to the edge of my seat.  Sheesh... 

If the writers keep this up, they're only going to find a dwindling audience of shallow-assed broads remaining.  Perhaps, they'll be able to move it to daytime TV in between the rest of your stories

He's right about the character evolution of this series...it's as boring as hell and so is the relational "drama" and I'm not going to apologize for that opinion in spite of your misandric view of the same. 

The writers have been on these weepy, emotional tangents since the start of the season.  Good film and tv media writers already have characters developed and plot-lines that are tantalizing without one having to "read" the graphic novellas.

For example, in a favorite zombie-movie of mine, "Shaun of the Dead", the characters were developed from the start and the relational drama (such that it was) was tongue-in-cheek at least and had a sense of ironic humor in spite of the shootakeakety situation...and it didn't take 14 hours of viewing time to get to the denouement which, by the way, does not take a drama major or Rhodes scholar to realize involves rising action at some point.

I've been hearing on teh ebays that same Siren-cry of "just wait...it gets better" from day one...still waiting.  Hope it does...but we'll have to continue to watch Scheherazade's proverbial dance of the walkers to find out won't we?

But, weepy, emotional tangents make good soap operas, and graphic novels are just comic books.  I said it...

Shaun of the Dead...  Really?  Try virtually any other apocalyptic thriller.  These writers have merely bought into the relationships and emotions trend of lamestream prime time television for the sole reason of appealing to a broader audience.  The fact is, they're losing a lot of us along the way.  Us being those who tend to be more rational, logical and intelligent than the feelings and emotions crowd. 

I've been hearing on teh ebays that same Siren-cry of "just wait...it gets better" from day one...still waiting.  Hope it does...but we'll have to continue to watch Scheherazade's proverbial dance of the walkers to find out won't we?

Well, when I think zombies I instinctively think "Shaun of the Dead"...and "Zombieland", of course.

But since you bought up apocalyptic thrillers I'll throw two out there..."The Road" and "The Book of Eli".  There were no zombies but the feral humans in "The Road" who resorted to hunting, killing, and eating other humans come close.  Both of these movies have sophisticated, engaging plots and exceptional, intriguing, lively, and provocative characters from the start...without having to sit through hours of irrelevant, emotional garbage.

I highly recommend these two movies by the way but don't expect any happiness and light with "The Road" if you watch it.

So let me get this straight, you like The Road and The Book of Eli...but you think that The Walking Dead is boring nonsensical drama. 

Right, watching the Road was mind numbingly boring and on par with a lobotomy.  The Book of Eli was predictable and should have been named "The Miracle Worker 2."

The book of Eli was ok for what it was.

You're a heartless sonofabitch. Stay on the farm and look for her? Wasting time even though there is NO WHERE to fudgeing go.

I would kiss you on the lips if the guys on here wouldn't enjoy it so much.

And you are right about Daryl.  But he has always been a BAMF - he was raised by wolves and had no choice.  He is actually becomming less feral and that's cool - he is all pissy now because he let himself be convinved he would find Sophia and he didn't - now he is angry and hurt. 

I am enjoying watching Rick make the transition.  He has gone from Rule of Law and always doing the right thing to having to do the "right now" thing.  The old rules don't apply and the bar scene really brought that home to him.  The look on his face when he shot Tony was AWESOME.  The unmaking of a good man...

The old rules don't apply and the bar scene really brought that home to him.  The look on his face when he shot Tony was AWESOME.  The unmaking of a good man...

^This too. I am like Gman though and hoping that some of this touchy feely shoot is done with but I do think that some of the set-up of persona's is needed to get the full effect of Rick becoming more of a bad ass. He needs to slap his bitch and get her in line.

"This is a scientist who seemingly held all the cards to what this epidemic is about and I do think, you know, you would imagine he would have something of value to say on that matter. Well, he chose to kill himself."

Lincoln also says the characters will soon leave the farm because "something happens and they realize very quickly that the farm is not as secure as they may think."

It was a fair episode, but it's still losing me.  I hate Lori.  I hate every second that heroin-chic bitch is on the screen. I hate Sheriff Twerp, too.  Kid with the hat pisses me off. 

When I'm actively rooting for all the major characters to die, that's not a good sign. 


If they were smart, here's where they'd take the show.  Let Lori get bitten.  You know she's going to die then so that will make 93.7% of the viewers happy.  But don't kill her. 

Chain her up in the barn and keep her fed.  Let the baby grow. Sedate her when she's about 8.5 months along and C-section it.  Then shoot her in the head.  See if the baby comes out zombie infant or normal. 

While all that's happening kill off Rick, Carl, Andrea, Herschel, Sophia's mom, all the other hillbillies in the house, the bad accent chick who likes Wong Foo and a couple hundred zombies.  Leave Shane and the black dude and Dale.  Then let them go search for zombie strip clubs or something.

The Walking Dead Season 2 McFarlane Toys Blu-ray Case Will Poke Your Eye Out
February 12, 2012

85
Share MacFarlane Toys has teamed up with Anchor Bay Home Entertainment to offer up a little extra treat when The Walking Dead: Season 2 arrives on Blu-ray and DVD later this year.
Today at Toy Fair 2012, MacFarlane Toys unveiled a zombie head package for the special edition release of The Walking Dead: Season 2 on Blu-ray (and likely DVD as well, though that is currently unconfirmed). No other details about the release are available at this time, and likely won't be announced for a few more months.

The zombie head is appropriately rotting with chunks of flesh missing, and stuck on a pedestal as if recently separated from the body it was once attached to. Completing the gory effect is a screwdriver rammed through its eye and into the eye socket.

Access to the Blu-rays inside is achieved by popping the head up like a Pez dispenser. Is that a great effect or what?

Be sure to check out the return of The Walking Dead on AMC tonight as the second season continues with six consecutive episodes. I'll be publishing a preview of the episode prior to it airing.

I'm actually a little bit disappointed with last nights episode. It took a whole hour, minus 25 minutes of commercials, to get Rick, Glenn, Doc and Lori back to the farm. It ended with Lori all up in Ricks ear trying to brain wash him. I'm with K on this one, Lori needs to go. It would totally boost ratings to off Lori by a horrifying Zombie death......then she comes back to eat her own son.

Actually, I thought the first 15 minutes were awesome, until I realized that I was on the wrong channel watching Desperate Housewives.  Those women are more decisive and have bigger ballz than the zombie-like characters in The Walking Dead.  Aside from that, the show was a bit better last night.  It still wasn't as good as I would have expected.  Still littered with an ample supply of touchy-feely soap opera crap...  More character development...  Relationship turmoil...  Baby drama...  And blah-blah-blah...  Oh, and as Tarheel suspected, we now have TWO bed-ridden characters. 

Like others have suggested, I would find it more entertaining to see some of the characters that we've grown to hate get eaten or shot by someone else.  When the zombies were after Lori, I was rooting for the zombies.  When the Philly gang was shooting at Rick, Glenn and Herschel, I wasn't sure who I wanted to win more...  the gang from Philly or the town's walker population.   The walkers should have won. 

I might watch it next week...  Maybe.

No.

With the exception of the first 12 minutes of run time (and that's counting the 2 minute "Mass Effect 3" Preview Commercial which was the most exciting action this week) this:

...
sharing and character development and hugging it out.
...

was pretty much that episode in a nut-shell.

The attack in town and the zombie attack on Lori's car and the Doc standing up to Shane were the only high marks. 

 :sarcasm: Of course there was the gripping and intense action of the girls sharing a tender moment around Beth's bed (who is still catatonic).  Then the melodramatic confrontation between Carol and Darryl.  Then Shane "rescuing" Lori after she'd already rescued herself...oh, then he lied to her about Rick being back...WOW...what a roller-coaster moment of intensity.  Then the BIG reveal by Shane about Lori's pregnancy!  O. M. G.  Followed by Lori having to talk to little Carl about his new baby sibling on the way.  Then the unrelenting excitement of Shane telling Lori that what he did to Otis was because of his love for her.  And Glenn telling Maggie that he did what he did because of his love for her...and, as if that wasn't enough action we got to see Lori poisoning Rick against Shane.  What a stunning maneuver!  I was on the edge of my seat! 

Yes, I was rooting for the zombies to eat Lori.  She's a manipulative, uber-dramatic cow.  I'm with dj and Kaos on her departure.

You guys really do bitch a lot, just saying...

I'm critical about entertainment.  If I'm going to invest the very expensive commodity of my entertainment time in a tv program then it better be worth it.

Maybe it'll get better.  Next week's episode looked a little more exciting in the previews.

If you're a fan of the comic, you know who the Governor is.  If you've never picked up the comic, the Governor was voted #86 on the top comic book villains of all time.  He's the kind of guy that would put tomatoes on a sandwich, and then yell "roll tide."

Nah, much better than the last two weeks. Sure it had its leaking vagina moments but I was glad to so more zombies getting ruffed up. I would have liked to see Rick cut Shanes leg off though and leave him for a Zombie snack.

I came to the conclusion last night that the zombies exist merely to drive the emotional hysteria of the show.  They're nothing more that set pieces designed to create situations where navel gazing is required.  After they killed Amy early in Season 1 (a sad state of affairs because she was at least pleasant to look at) have you at any time felt that any of the primary characters (save for the drawn out Sophia affair) were in the least bit vulnerable?

This is not a show about surviving the zombie apocalypse or even how one might go about living and dying in a zombie infested world (Zombieland did that so, so much better). 

This is, at its core, a prime time soap opera that uses zombies in the same way Dallas used oil, Knots Landing used adultery and Grey's Anatomy uses hospital beds.  All the zombies do is set up the next emotional confrontation between its antagonists. 

The "kill the boy" plot is asinine.  Glen found Rick in a tank in Atlanta.  Did they kill him?  No they took him back to the camp.  Stupid and utterly unrealistic. 

I'm gravely disappointed with the turn this series took in this extended season two.  The first season, while lacking in some respects, was far superior to this zombie soap.

I'm also tired of the pimping of that lame ass comic book store show.  I understand that Smith has on rare occasion shoot out something worthy of film (but mostly just shoot).  Yes, I said it.  Mostly complete and utter shoot:

Jersey Girl = turds in a bowl
Zac and Miri = multiple turds in multiple bowls (absolute garbage and the waste of a good actress)
Jay and Silent Bob = profane turds in a turd bowl
Cop Out = One of the turdiest movies ever seen. Complete and utter turd
Clerks II = Turded up one of his few good films
Red State = Such a turd I don't think it's ever been seen

So he likes comic books and has a store.  GREAT premise for a new show.   :taunt:

Expecting me to sit through that limp richard drizzle fest to see a preview of next week's Dead (which typically involves characters sitting around talking) is too much.

I use it but damn. I usually tune in when it first comes on but quickly hit the DVR. After eating, showering and putting chil'ren to bed I still have to suffer through 15 to 20 minutes worth of commercials. Before you know it I'll be out buying Mass Effect 3.

I'm also tired of the pimping of that lame ass comic book store show.  I understand that Smith has on rare occasion shoot out something worthy of film (but mostly just shoot).  Yes, I said it.  Mostly complete and utter shoot:

Jersey Girl = turds in a bowl
Zac and Miri = multiple turds in multiple bowls (absolute garbage and the waste of a good actress)
Jay and Silent Bob = profane turds in a turd bowl
Cop Out = One of the turdiest movies ever seen. Complete and utter turd
Clerks II = Turded up one of his few good films
Red State = Such a turd I don't think it's ever been seen

So he likes comic books and has a store.  GREAT premise for a new show.   :taunt:

Expecting me to sit through that limp richard drizzle fest to see a preview of next week's Dead (which typically involves characters sitting around talking) is too much.

The show was weak. 

They promised us in the mid-season break that they'd be leaving the farm almost immediately and that the action was going to ramp right the hell on up. 

They lied. 

Two, maybe three episodes left and we're still on the farm, we're still wringing out emotional issues.  We're still standing around having philosophical debates. 

That shootty kid in the stupid hat is still breathing.  The whore wife still draws air.  Rick has degraded back into a puss of the first order. 

Shane and Darryl should have taken over long ago.

I had never watched this show until last night. I just happened to be flipping through the Directv guide and saw it in progress. Thought I would flip it over for a moment to see what it was all about. Watched it about 3 mins. All I saw were 2 bitches arguing in the kitchen of a house about who washes dishes and provides and who watches out, and also why one is made to watch out while the other gets to dish out orders for everyone but herself....and.....Forget it. I'm good, thanks. I can watch a catty soap opera on network tv all day long if I wanted to watch that.

In the comic, you don't have to die via a zombie bite to come back as a zombie.  Just dying of natural causes will bring you back.  Sounds like they are doing the same thing in the tv show.

My theory: the virus is airborne and all have inhaled it.  It incubates in the body and upon lack of oxygen/death it activates.

I'm assuming that this is what the CDC doctor whispered.

I never read up on the comic and I am unsure how close the TV series follows the comic, but, one of my wifes friends apparently did read the comic and said that Lori dies too......soon. How ironic would it be if Carl has to put both of them down.

I was talking with Wench, and your theory is just about what I was thinking.  Guessing here, but that could be why Rick didn't leave Shane's body, he knew it would reanimate (but I wonder, why not just kick in the head of the dead body?).

So, Daryl and Glenn did see/kill the Randall as a zombie so I am sure that will be brought up and they have a pretty good suspicion that Shane did it. What they will soon find out is that Shane was also killed as a zombie therefore folks gonna be asking. One thing that plays in my head is the incident with Shane trapped in the bus. Did he get scratched?

He would have gone zombie long before he was killed by Rick, I think.  Randall had no recent exposure and the setup with the cops at the depot would also have been unnecessary.

Thats what I was remembering. It was mentioned the two dead cops were not bitten but only scratched with both Shane and Randall in a close call but not bitten in the same episode. This would fit well with your "carrier" scenario with both of them dying as a zombie but not directly being infected. Also, I think the time frame from these two episodes is like three days.

My theory: the virus is airborne and all have inhaled it.  It incubates in the body and upon lack of oxygen/death it activates.

Alternatively, the virus may activate even while the person is alive, but it may take longer, whereas lack of oxygen/death accelerates it.

The reason I say this is because Shane was acting weird prior to his death.  Staring off in the distance like a mouth breathing retard, slapping his head repeatedly, etc.  Granted, Shane's been becoming unhinged for some time now, but the last episode was pretty extreme.  There were points where Shane was excessively drooling for no apparent reason.

With that being said, if Shane was infected and the virus does turn the living at a slower rate, then why aren't the others showing signs?  Maybe they're immune?  Or the time frame in which a living person will turn is dependent upon that person's genetic predispositions, metabolism, etc.?

Part of me says that the dormancy period theory is more likely, but the one thing that gets me is that if a living person is bitten, they turn.  Technically, I guess they die first and then turn, but still, the virus doesn't remain dormant in their system after being bitten until a later point at which they die.  So what would be the difference between inhaling the virus and contracting it via a bite?  Why does a living person who is bitten die and then turn, but a living person who has supposedly inhaled it does not turn until they die from something else?

Maybe a bite causes two viruses or the zombie virus and an infection.  The virus is dormant, but since the bite also adds a deadly virus the bitten dies quickly and turns.

Title: Re: The Walking Dead
Post by: XMember on March 13, 2012, 03:39:26 PM
My problem even before this story line began to emerge was this:  if being bitten/zombie blood makes you turn, then what about all the blood that has gotten all over these people as they have hacked zombies to death?  They have been slavered on, splattered head to toe, covered in guts, etc.  NO WAY has zombie blood not crossed a membrane barrier -the mouth, nose, eyes.  Yet no one had, before now, turned without a bite.

So now that's happening.  Why?

My theory is blowback.  The way Jarhead and I worked it out, if you are bitten, you get the virus in your system via the bloodstream in vast quantities, and an infection ensues.  You die of the infection and then reanimate.

But if you get a secondary contamination - for example, blood splashed in your eyes or mouth as you slam a hatchet down on a dead cranium - then your body is able to fight it off in small quantities.  But when you die, the body's defense mechanism no longer protects you, and the virus takes over. Then BRAIAAAAIIIINS...

Both Shane and Randall had been up close and personal to zombies many times.  Neither of them had died of a head wound.  The two dudes in the bar won't reanimate because Rick shot them both in the head.  Otherwise, they probably would have.  Same thing goes for Dale.

Jarhead remembers in the comic (and I do, vaguely) that Rick goes back to where they buried Shane and smashes his head in to prevent him from coming back.  The TV show only slightly followed the comic for this story line.  In the comic, Shane was attacking/raping Lori and Carl actually shoots and kills Shane outright to save his mom.  He had not yet reanimated when Rick goes back to smash him, so that is definitely a deviation.

Kind of reminds me of The Stand.  Killer flu, some are immune, some aren't.

In one of the book series that Jarhead, Sani and I read (Monster Hunter International), all members of the Monster Hunter teams are decapitated prior to burial.  Most have been bitten by or exposed to vampires during their careers, and they would reanimate as a vamp after they died unless they are headless.  The virus stays dormant until death.  That's where I got my theory.

In the MHI books, a person killed by a zombie also reanimates immediately.  SO it could happen.  :)
Title: Re: The Walking Dead
Post by: XMember on March 13, 2012, 03:54:22 PM
You raise a good question.......When did they stop wearing protective gear when they killed zombies?  I remember they had lab aprons and face shields on after they got rick out of the tank in season 1 but then Rick and Glen rubbed the shoot all over them trying to get out of the city.

Exactly.  These were done with the killing fury that Rick had not shown up to that point.  Something has changed.

So, thinking back, the ones that have died but not by zombies since the CDC have been shot in the head; including the old fart in episode 11.

Then BRAIAAAAIIIINS...

Possibly...but then this makes me wonder what Jenner said to Rick at the CDC.  The fact that he whispered it to Rick coupled with the fact that Rick's actions can be inferred to show his knowledge of when/why people will turn suggests that, if Rick does know, Jenner was the source of that information.  Rick's knowledge can't be from any source other than Jenner, as I can't recall him having any other conversations with anyone who had been studying the virus.

What Jenner said to Rick was relatively short.  "Everyone has the virus and will turn at death" seems more like what he would have been able to say to Rick in that short amount of time.  "People will immediately die and turn after being bitten, but if you get a secondary contamination via porous membranes that come into contact with zombie blood or saliva, then your body will fight off the infection until you die of other causes, and then you will turn" seems like too much of an explanation for Jenner to convey in the few seconds he whispered to Rick.

Additionally, if Jenner did in fact tell Rick about this secondary contamination, then wouldn't he change his actions regarding how he interacts with zombies?  Go back to wearing aprons, masks, etc.?  Or, at the very least, if he just assumes that he and several others have already come into contact with it and are doomed, wouldn't he try to protect those who have not yet been in contact with it?  Especially his own stupid fudgeing son that keeps running off in the middle of the night and playing with zombies.

The theory makes sense based upon who's turned so far and how, but it doesn't really match up with the length of the message that Jenner relayed, nor does it match up with Rick's subsequent actions in dealing with zombies.  But, of course, Jenner could have said something else that was completely wrong, and Rick could just be a moron.

At the end of Season 2 and with the intent to stick around to maybe see what happens in Season 3, it's time to give out some Walkies, the Walking Dead version of the Oscars. 

The Walkie for Worst Parent of the Apocalypse goes to...

Lori. 

How many times is she going to let that twat nosed brat of hers wander around without supervision?  If there's a zombie infestation I'm sticking close by my kids. 

The Walkie for Biggest Plot Lapse goes to...

Herschel.

Two weeks ago he said he had a bunker big enough for everybody and supplies stocked away for weeks.  So when the herd advances on the farm he fails to remember this safety zone?  Brilliant. 


The Walkie for Circuitous Advancement goes to ...

Shane.

Going to kill Rick, so you walk him around in a big ass circle and lead him right back into view of the fudgeing farmhouse?  No.  You kill him in the woods, leave his body and you damn sure don't talk about it first.   Pop.  Done.  Walker got him Lori, now slide out of them jeans.   Badly scripted, though the moonlight backdrop was pretty.

The Walkie for Biggest Daffy Duck Moment goes to...

Carl.

Never have I hated a child in a show more than I loathe this one.  I spend half of every episode urging one character or another to "shoot him, shoot him now."  And then in my head I hear Daffy Duck telling Fudd "shoot him, shoot him now" in that classic Bugs Bunny cartoon.  I laugh for no reason and people think me insane. 

The Walkie for Worst Artificial Racism goes to

Darryl.

Had to drop in a line about Asian drivers this week to remind us that Darryl is still a redneck.  Rednecks like nothing better than making fun of Asians, Jews, Foreigners.


Sort of hate that the entire second season was apparently nothing more than a drawn out preview for Season 3.  But now we've got hooded black chicks with walkers in chains.   That gives me hope because Tito now has a romantic interest and the slave zombies seems like a cool way to resolve that issue.

I mean, its not BAD. Its like any other good show that started out ok with a good premise and then went into the character relationships/drama foremost. House, ER, Grey's Anatomy all come to mind. House was fantastic until they ruined it with the same kind of character drama. When House was JUST diagnosing people, and kicking ass/taking names in the ER - it was on. Now, its like "who will he fudge next week and will Becky get mad about it since she liked him one time in the past, except for the part where he reminds her of this other boyfriend she had that beat her". Oh btw, he has to fix someone at the hospital for 5 mins of the show.  I really really hope Breaking Bad doesn't do this in this new season.

I was beginning to get irritated with some of the storyline but I'll have to say, they finally seem to have gotten out of the funk. The last two episodes have been much better and it seems season 13 has much gooder promise.

I read there will be 16 episodes for next season.

I can understand that.  I was getting aggravated too.  From what I have read though, next season is going to be amazing.  Non-Stop craziness.   The governor, Michonne, etc... 

The one thing that pissed me off about last episode was when Rick was explaining to his wife what happened to Shane...She got pissed off.  What the fudge?  She pushed him to do it, did she not?  What the fudge is her problem?  Is she mad because Carl shot him? Is she mad because he withheld the secret about everyone being infected?  If she is mad because he killed Shane, then she should be shot for being dumb.   Maybe someone who read the comics can explain it to me so that I'm not completely confused.

I agree. I can't wait to see Lori get axed. I got a little pissy though because Rick did a horrible job of explaining what happened in the field. "Shane was going to kill me but I killed the motherfudgeer first" would have been better; plain and simple.

Without spoiling the comic, or future storylines on the show, it's very similar, up until Rick finds the survivors outside Atlanta, but then the TV show goes in a different direction.

I was watching Lori's face when Rick was telling her - she did not get freaked looking until he said, so nonchalantly, "Carl finished him off."  That's when her hands went to her face.  She has been opposed to Carl having a gun from the beginning, and now here's Rick, turning him into a zombie killer, and his first kill is one of their closest companions.  I think the fact that Rick was so blase about it also hit her like a ton of bricks, like she is finally realizing that Rick is turning into a hard man, maybe even more of a bad ass than she was ready to deal with.

I don't think she is mad too much about Shane. 

And yeah, if it rolls along like the comic, next season will challenge the Ricktatorship like never before.  The Governor is one messed up dude, and an absolute fudgeing psychopath.  Pure evil.

And Michonne is another awesome bad ass.

Where'd you get that Lori wanted Rick dead?  Per an interview I saw with the actress, she says Lori goes to Shane to try and smooth things over and apologize for her part in everything, and he reads it the absolute wrong way, that he thinks she is saying she still loves him, etc., which makes him go off the deep end and decide to kill Rick.  I cannot imagine her thinking Shane would be a better father to Carl than Rick. 

If the baby is born with a bannana for a nose, the baby is Shane's.  Damn, he is just NOT a good looking guy.

First look at Michone - WOW.  She even favors the comic drawing facially.  Great choice.

http://insidetv.ew.com/2012/05/23/walking-dead-danai-gurira-michonne/ (http://insidetv.ew.com/2012/05/23/walking-dead-danai-gurira-michonne/)

Quote
Ever since we saw that cloaked figure brandishing a katana sword while accompanied by two chained up armless zombies in The Walking Dead’s season 2 finale, fans have been salivating for a first look at the woman under the hood — Michonne. That first look is now here. A fan favorite from The Walking Dead comic book on which the AMC series is based, Michonne will be played by actress Danai Gurira (Treme) when the show returns for season 3 this October, and here is your exclusive first taste of what she will look like.

In the comics, Michonne is an unflinching warrior who proves to be powerful ally for Rick Grimes and the rest of the survivors. But how different will the onscreen version be? “The essence of the character — her personality, her motives, everything that makes Michonne Michonne — remains intact from the comics,” says Robert Kirkman (the creator of the comic and executive producer of the TV adaptation). “But like a lot of things on the show, there will be little tweaks and differences here and there. We saw that her introduction is slightly different from how it was in the comic, and her interaction with Andrea is really going to be a really cool addition to the character that I think will get television viewers up to speed, and they’ll get to know her a lot faster than comic book readers did.”

As for why they cast the relatively unknown Danai Gurira for the pivotal role, Kirkman says, “We looked at a lot of talented people that were really fantastic, but we were waiting for that one spark, that moment where everyone was completely in agreement and completely excited, and we felt like we had found the essence of this fictional character that just randomly appeared in another person, and that person was Danai Gurira. She kind of came in and really just blew us all away. She’s got incredible presence, and she’s got a theater background, and is very physical, and was just perfect for the role.”

Kirkman is equally enthusiastic about the big location setting for season 3, as Rick and company attempt to turn a prison into their new zombie-proof fortress. “It looks absolutely amazing,” gushes Kirkman. “They are shooting the hell out of this prison. It just looks absolutely stunning, and I think when people start seeing trailers and stuff for this season, I think people are just gonna be like, “Wait, what? This is what? I can’t believe this is a TV show!” It’s really creepy, really moody and it’s just gonna be really awesome.”

Was watching Shawshank Friday evening on AMC and saw the alert across the bottom. Glad I'm already on Directv because I would be pissed if I were on DISH at the moment. Although it would be because of Breaking Bad for me. This channel has 2-3 big shows that pull in a ton of viewers and I wonder how many of them know about this.

So Merle is coming back and the navel gazing that punctuated the entire second season and a half at the farm will be left behind.  That's the gist of the preview. 

Will say that I watched the first two episodes and they were so much better than the entire second season that it gave me hope that this show can find its way back.  The first few episodes of the series were pretty damn good.

Weird that they fired the entire writing staff after Year One and apparently selected the women of the Oprah Winfrey Book Club to write season two.

I agree, it looks like there may be hope. Did you catch the black and white version last night? I thought that was pretty cool.

I had Dish in probably 95 or 96.  It was horrible.  Constant trouble getting the two satellites aligned.  They couldn't read a map and the guy assigned to service my system lived five hours away -- and they wouldn't change it.  It never worked more than ten days consistently.  They cut down trees, drilled holes in my roof, tried mounting the dish on a wooden pole 50 yards from the house and then digging a trench for the cables.  Every time the wind blew at all, the dish would move and have to be realigned.  Just a horrible experience.   And the channel selection sucked, the receivers constantly had to be reset. 

Switched to DirecTV.  Better channels, better interface.  Never had any trouble with reception.  It was like a heaven compared. 

Friend had Dish in about 2007.  Every time we tried to watch a movie or game at his house he'd have to adjust the satellite signal because one or more had gotten out of sync.  Missed a lot.  Got to the point we'd only watch shoot at my house because he couldn't rely on Dish.

Agree. I've had Direct for about 6 years now. Very few issues and they tend to give you free shoot and bill credits if you complain enough about the little things that do happen seldomly. I took a vacation up to the NC Mountains last year and the cabin owner had DISH, so I was able to compare. Not even close. I hated DISH so bad that I literally quit looking for shoot to watch. The interface and guide were horrible, and worst of all - channels I was used to getting on Direct were considered Premium on DISH. No thanks.

So I finally sat down and watched the last half of Season 2 of "Teh Walking Dead" with my Dad (who is a big fan of the show) last week and I have decided that I could have done completely without the first half of the season (with the exception of the characters finding zombie-Sophia and shooting her in the head which could have been accomplished in the first five minutes of the first episode of Season 2). 

There was significantly less estrogen-laced, interpersonal drama which is how it should have been all along (with the exception of one episode where there was way too much proverbial hand-wringing in an attempt to suss-out what to do with a certain individual that had been bought to the farm...my opinion, he never should have been bought to the farm in the first place...there's no time for "compassion" in teh zombie apocalypse apart from a bullet in the head).

I might be inclined to keep watching the show however as I'm sure has been alluded to earlier in this thread Dish Network has dropped AMC; and, besides, there are much, much better shows in the premium world that is HBO, Showtime, and Skinamax.

Anyway, I'd comment on the characters who stayed and who left but I don't want to post any spoilers. 

Wait...I think I will post a spoiler (you are warned):

I would have liked to have seen the reprehensible and loathsome Lori get gnawed on by the two zombies that attacked her car after her ridiculous, uber-dramatic exit from the farm in an attempt to find Rick...I was rooting for the zombies!  She must go in only the most horrible way possible.

I know that feeling.  I heard it on the radio while on my way to NC last week...I got a little something in my eyes for a minute or three.  Later some program I was listening to played Andy Griffith's comedy routine from 1953 called "What it was...was football" and that cheered me up in hearing him talk about "those men were a-fightin' over that little punkin'" and "just as soon as one of 'em would go down they'd carry him oft and run another one on!"  His reference to the calling the striped-shirt officials "convicts" makes me bellow with laughter every time I hear it.  But that whole bit is hilarious.

I thought it was great.  Although, I could definitely see the show being extremely slow if I had to wait a week between each episode. 

I think watching each season in 6 hour sprints makes it feel much more like a really well-made movie. 

I've loved it.  I can't wait until October 14th.

TONIGHT TONIGHT TONIGHT HOT DAMN IT'S COMING TONIGHT!!!

My Sunday nights are once again full of zombies and survivors and one handed people with a grudge and a prison full of goodness knows what...

Of course, gonna have to DVR it. Kids can't watch it (holy shoot, baby boy would sleep attached to my thigh for a month) and besides, the undefeated Texans are playing the late night game, and considering that's all the real football I have left for the year, I gotta work it. 

So as soon as JJ Swatt crushes the will to live of yet another QB, and once the Texans "D" turns the Packers into very large examples of living cheese head dead, I shall pour a toast of bubbly to the boys in Steel Blue and Battle Red, and then hunker down in a secure location to await the next chapter in the apocalypse.

It's gonna be EPIC.

OK. 

THAT was the show I waited all of season two for them to deliver.  Much better.

Honest motivations, clear sense of purpose.  No muddling around with the farm bullshoot and all that soap opera drama.  The goal was survival in the face of daunting odds.  The decisions made were in line with what I'd expect desperate people in need of a safe haven -- even if temporary -- to do. 

As a side note I've never given less of a fudge about a baby than I do Lori's.  Unless it was Jim and Pam's baby/babies on The Office.  I don't care about those fudgeing babies either.

The writers said that they were going to almost make the prison setting itself another character, with it being so dark and foreboding, yet offering a (false?) sense of sanctuary.  And it worked - that were probably some of the most tense and truly scary scenes yet up and down the halls in the dark.

That was exactly what I had hoped the season premiere would be.  Lots of action and suspense with a few different story lines that could each go in one of 3 or 4 directions for the balance of the season.

I thought episode 2 had a few features that were all time worst for this show.  And I love this show.  And I loved episode 2.

But the worthless scene of Maggie crying and telling Hershel goodbye for five minutes?  And then he didn't die?  Lame.

Then, the whole premise that five convicts could reside together in a cafeteria for ten months and still look and act like normal convicts.  Sorry, especially considering how psycho long-haired dude was, that whole group wasn't unbelievable.  If I was penned up in a jailcell for ten months with no outside interaction, I'm showing some signs of lunacy.  I'm probably pissing off the other four guys until one of them (who is also looney) tries to kill me.  Especially if I was already unstable enough to be in a federal prison.  What were they doing for ten months?  Playing "I Spy"?  Charades?  Drop the soap? 

I'm also realizing that my worst fears about this show are true.  The seasons are much more enjoyable as two six hour movies as opposed to one 45 minute episode per week. 

I do think the plot could benefit from them travelling more.  Season 2 was locked up on a farm.  Now they're locked up in a prison.  Unfortunately, we know they'll be in the prison at least one more episode because Lori will have the baby there.  Then the previews have given away The Governor and his compound as the next location.  And I'm sure they'll be there for most of season 3. 

This is post-apocalyptic USA.  Let's see a little bit of what's going on outside of Atlanta.

I do think the plot could benefit from them travelling more.  Season 2 was locked up on a farm.  Now they're locked up in a prison.  Unfortunately, we know they'll be in the prison at least one more episode because Lori will have the baby there.  Then the previews have given away The Governor and his compound as the next location.  And I'm sure they'll be there for most of season 3. 

This is post-apocalyptic USA.  Let's see a little bit of what's going on outside of Atlanta.
1. That was a State Prison.

2. They did not realize that the world had ended.  Therefore, fear/repercussions may have kept them in line.

3.  It's a zombie apocalypse show, not Shakespeare, just enjoy it.

So we finally got AMC back on Dish as of Sunday night just in time for me to watch episode two (I have not seen episode one at this point).  I am finding that I didn't miss the show or AMC but my best to you if you like it.  Episode two seemed like more of the same soap-opera, melodrama that I complained about in season two.  It did not leave me wanting to see more.  With respects; I've moved-on.

In re:  the Maggie - Herschel scene". The DVR is your friend.  I skipped it once I caught on to what the deal was.

And COME ON.  The machete to the head was pretty fudgeing hard core.  So was locking the outer door.  Rick has crossed into a dark place, and I want to see how he reacts and adjusts to what for him as person is  uncharted territory.

The helicopter is going to give us a look into outside ATL. It had to have come from somewhere. 

And Merle coming back is going to be AWESOME.

The machete in the head was, indeed, hardcore, I did rewind that one...actually, maybe I'll watch a few more episodes after all...I'd forgotten about the helicopter since it's been what seems like a Lifetime ago (pun intended).

I was worried that David Morrissy would not be able to pull off the Governor.  That's an intense character with one seriously fudgeed up back story.  Was not sure he had the chops.

I was wrong.

Holy shoot, he is creepy as hell. Even old Merle is scared of him.

He sounds like every creepy boogie man I have ever had nightmares about. 

Also like about half of the turd nation, which is kind of the same thing.

The showdown between him and Daryl will be awesome.  I think all those flashbacks Daryl had when he got hurt that time - where Merle is mocking him, and calling him a pussy - those will play a part in Daryl's choice that he will have to make eventually.

I must say that Governor character absolutely disturbs the hell out of me not even knowing his back-story and the fate of those Nat. Guardsmen (especially the chopper pilot) has really disturbed my calm this week as much as that creepy little town of Woodbury...I'm with Michone ( ?...not sure of the names) who wants to get the hell out of there...show might've won me back this time...we'll see...

Interesting that the best episode by far so far didn't included a single one of the the "main characters".

I think I'm tired of Rick, and Carl, and Lori, and Daryl, and T-Dog.

This season has picked up on the gorey zombie action, which is great an all, but I like a good story.

This last episode looks like we're finally getting to some of that.

I haven't read the comics, and avoid spoilers, but I have seen a picture of the Governor, and how the fudge did they not cast Danny Trejo?

I have to agree with you on all points there...of course not having read the graphic novels I won't comment on that other than to say that it is good that the tv series strays from that story line somewhat; keeps the graphic novel readers hooked too and keeps the spoilers under some control.

The Gov's backstory is actually a stand alone story - not in comic form. And it is not tracking at all with the show.  But it is as creepy as a wall full of floating heads.

If any one wants to read it, let me know.

I am a bit put off with the Michone character. Could she give the sideways angry black woman glare one more time?  I get that she is suspicious but find another way to demonstrate it, please.

Her backstory is also good - it is in comic form, and so far it is spot on. I hope she gets a chance to kick more ass.

And, yes, I admit she's got the looks that I like...Sani and Lurking Tiger know about my "affliction".  So I read a little about her character's back-story on teh Wikis...she's an Attorney?!  Did I read that correctly?!  You could have knocked me over with a feather.  I would have taken her for a Shinkendo/Muay Farang/MMA professional...I guess she could be boff...anyway, I think she's provocative...in an alluring way...it's an affliction.

I think all that practicing the c-section on the zombie has to tie back in some way.  Maybe Carl didn't have the balls to shoot her.  And on the extended preview for next week, Rick runs into the boiler room and Maggie goes "She should have been RIGHT HERE!" 

So either Carol manages somehow to save Lori  (Don't look at me for explanations, I am just the idea girl...) or Lori and Carol are both zombified and Rick has to shoot them both in the head, driving him even further over the edge of the cliffs of insanity.  He is gonna have to be in a very fudgeed up and dark place to go mano a mano with the Governor.

Totally wrong.  Lori is officially dead.  I went back and watched the preview and Glenn tells Rick "You shoulnd't be in here..." and Rick goes for him.

But I got the part about him having to be in a dark place to face the Governor...

Quote
Speaking about the shocking episode where Lori was killed off in a gruesome yet emotional way, Glen Mazzara claimed they made the decision to move up Lori's death "to make sure that Rick was suffering as much as possible, that Rick was at his breaking point, at the exact moment that his most formidable foe [the Governor] was coming right for him."

The showrunner went on explaining, "The Rick at the end of episode two can take on the Governor but the Rick of end of episode four is a broken man. Now everything is up in the air and anything could happen when the two groups meet. That was the catalyst for the decision: Lori's death and the affects on Rick and the rest of the group would be a devastating loss."

The WWE thing will get better, I think.  I am guessing at some point, Merle and Rick.

The humanization of Daryl is interesting too.  It's like he needs that baby.  And I guess they found enough of Carol to know she's dead.  Funny that she just *poof* was gone without a big death scene.  She is the only one of the three dead ones who did not give an interview about being off the show.  Wonder what that means?

No way she's dead.  T-Dog died saving her.  We never saw her get eaten.  In the preview, they mention finding her knife. 

I'm thinking she tried to get back to the group but was cut off by walkers.  Decided to high tail it to the woods and is now lost, much like Sofia.  And then, she'll be found by the Governor's people leading them to the prison.

Yeah, I think they are all assuming that Carol died.  I also agree with THS: they don't kill a major character with no fanfare.

Carol is the link between the core (Rick, et al) group and the Governor's encampment.

There will be some interaction between a combination of Carol/Michonne/Andrea/Merle that will result in the two groups facing off.

Jarhead is on a deadline at work, or he would have shared this himself.  He texted me last night that the daughter of a friend of his was in the little town in Georgia where they are filming Woodbury.

And Carol was on set...  She signed autographs for the fans.

So... any thoughts on Penny?  The thing in the comic that grossed me the hell out was that the Gov KISSED her... he had pulled her teeth so "Daddy" could love on his baby.  In the comic, he is her uncle, not her daddy, but there is more to that story.  Could not tell if her teeth were pulled on the show or not, but that is still nasty as all get out.  He sure did move fast when she snapped at him.  One of these days he is gonna pull on that straight jacket and her rotted little arms are going with it... blech.

Jarhead is on a deadline at work, or he would have shared this himself.  He texted me last night that the daughter of a friend of his was in the little town in Georgia where they are filming Woodbury.

And Carol was on set...  She signed autographs for the fans.

In the comic, she eats people, so I wouldn't count out her having her teeth removed.

And my buddy said they are currently filming the second part of season 3.  His daughter met the actresses that play Carol and Andrea.

Wonder if they will do to Glenn what the Governor does to Rick in the comic?

In the comic, the Governor captures Glenn, Rick, and Michonne, and demands to know where they were from.  When no one will say anything, he cuts off Rick's hand.

Anyone have thoughts on the mid-season cliffhangers?

The Gov is OFFICIALLY unhinged.

Andrea - just realized she's made ANOTHER shootastic decision about fudge buddies.  Her realizing that she looks like the Gov's dead wife was a nice touch.

I had the cage match pegged, but did not think it would be Daryl V Merle.  Figured it would be Rick.

And they kill off the second token black guy.  I liked him too.  At least Tyrese is on scene - he is a major player in the comic.

New members of the tribe - also interesting.

Last month, it was confirmed that The Walking Dead would be returning for a fourth season and it would be under the watchful eye of the series third showrunner as Glen Mazzara would be leaving the production. Much like Frank Darabont in July of 2011, Mazzara's departure was somewhat shrouded in mystery as the only reason given by AMC was that &quot;both parties acknowledge that there is a difference of opinion about where the show should go moving forward, and conclude that it is best to part ways.&quot;
 

(http://www.icv2.com/images/24659GlenMazzara-md.jpg)


Details are starting to come up about what happened between the Executive Producer and the network. THR is reporting that series creator Robert Kirkman may have played a part. &quot;Kirkman was one of several producers on the show who had issues with Mazzara and his vision,&quot; they wrote. &quot;I believe Robert wants to maintain a certain amount of his control,&quot; said an unnamed insider &quot;and AMC needs Robert for the fan base.&quot; Kirkman is reportedly &quot;very proprietary&quot; about the comic's translation to television.
 
Another source claimed the reason behind Mazzara's departure was his &quot;short comings&quot; as a showrunner. They allege the problem became very clear in the second half of the season when production was shut down &quot;several times&quot; due to a lack of material.
 
We may never know for sure what happened between AMC and Glen Mazzara, but we certainly hate to see him leaving the series. The Walking Dead returns from hiatus on February 10.

For those that dont like to pay for shoot, here is an online version of the comic for free.

http://www.scribd.com/collections/2849035/The-Walking-Dead-comic-english?page=1


Haven't read much of the comics but I did enjoy the the video game version. You play as newly convicted murder who is on his way to prison when the outbreak happens. After that you pretty much just ry and survive and protect a small child you run across. Its a prequel, if you will, to the tv series with some chartacters from the show in it. Game play itself is fairly simple and the game is more structed around how you interact with others. Decisions you make shape what happens later in the game. Bought the first 5 episodes (first season) of it for $20 from the PS3 store. Money well spent.

I think Daryl will be back to but after Merle is killed, probably by Daryl. Rick, from what I hear from those who have read the comic version, does venture off to the dark side a little bit.

I agree with this.

The Lori angle is stupid.  The phone call pushed it, but I didn't mind it as a moment of closure.  Seeing her in a nightgown with a shadow across her face was pointless.  It'd be better to just make him a total asshole with no love for his son or daughter and no care for how others feel.  We'd get it.  We'd understand just fine that he was losing his humanity because of the death of his wife.

The calls were in the comics played out over a longer term.  He also talks to her quite awhile (several calls) before he ever realizes it is Lori

I don't think they played the governor role up enough, he isn't crazy enough in my opinion, especially for Michonne to specifically want to kill him.  If you saw what he did to her in the comics it makes sense but not in the series.

I like comic Andrea way better than series Andrea.  Spoiler....

Interesting to learn that about the "calls"; I really thought, like others, that they were leading to closure on Lori.

Regarding the Governor; well, he is English; I think that's about as crazy as they get short of going full-on Monty Python.

The Governor in the comics did some pretty fudgeed up things to Michonne...things you would want to do to her... whilst she was tied up.  Think what he did to Maggie (in the show) only 100x worse.  This is the reason she goes to kill him.  (She takes, his eye, his arm, and his richard and leaves him for dead) 

In the show he really never did anything to Michonne.  We know he sends Merle to kill her, but you would think her anger would be construed towards Merle.  I just think they needed to show him a lot more off his rocker than he is in the show....he is pretty fudgeed up in the comics.

I know they aren't trying to be the same as the comics...but I felt the fact that Michonne ran off specifically to wait for him and kill him was a little out of place (had I not known what I did from the comics).

I've wondered about AMC's ability to fully portray the show as it should be portrayed.

Last Sunday's episode treated Maggie like she was raped, but all she did was take her shirt off.  That's normal behavior in most of Europe.  And then Glenn's acting all put out like something tremendously awful happened to her. 

I wonder why they didn't just insinuate that she was raped.  Have the governor throw her on the ground and then cut away to commercial.  Come back and Maggie's quiet and depressed and Glenn's crying.  The audience would understand the implications. 

I really like the show, but it could be so much better.  Michonne is annoying.  I can tell that she could be an awesome character that provides a lot of excitement, but so far, as a non-comic book reader, she's just a mad black woman who doesn't want to be around people.

They wouldn't shy away from a rape scene.

Last night's episode was AMAZING.  And it made me realize how much the other episodes have sucked.

I'll admit this - I don't like the governor.  Not in a "He's a bad guy" kind of way.  I don't like the actor.  I don't like the character development.  I don't care about Woodbery.  I don't give two shoots about what Andrea decides to do. 

The only intriguing part of Woodbery was the experiment the scientist guy ran with the old guy that had recently died. 

The show should be more mobile.  I know that the budget limits them, and that's AMC's fault.  This show should be about the apocalypse involving zombies.  There should be a lot of scavenging, cold-hearted vagabonds, and killing of zombies. 

If I were the writer, I would:

- Go ahead and get the Woodbery-Prison war over with.  Kill the governor.  Make it exciting. 
- Kill Herschel and kill the baby. 
- Have two groups.  One is in the country searching for food, survivors, supplies and one in Atlanta or another city or the North or somewhere else.
- If you want to introduce an established city, make it a real city.  Not a 50-person small town that literally never has any action besides a stupid late night WWE tournament.  And because this new city will feature a large population, it will attract herds of zombies.  There's your big time zombie-killing action scenes.
- Give the characters missions besides going to get formula for a baby that doesn't serve a purpose.  Like, the city has a working science lab and needs resources to find a possible cure.  Boom.  Military style runs with serious implications.

I chortled at Michonne's line after they got into the building.

Rick:  "So, we're eating his food now, too?"
Michonne:  "The mat said 'Welcome.'"

I hated the episode you loved.  Finding Radio gone crazy in the loft didn't do squat for me. 

I liked tonight's.   

Don't care about Glen and Maggie at all, they could leave that out.  But I like Merle.  Thought it was very well done and mixed the horror and brutality quite well. 

I still want to shoot Carl in the face.  I despise Lori and wish she would die again.  But tonight's episode didn't telegraph every move.  It was just a well-told, well-acted effort.

I'm pot committed, so I'll finish out the season and continue talking about it.  But I really do see myself skipping out on season 4 if it's anything like season 3. 

Andrea is worthless and a total moron.  The governor is lame and needs to die; it really seems like he's going to become a main staple of the show however.  Herschel is Dale without the hat or mechanic skills.  Carol COULD have been intersting if she and Darryl hooked up, but for some reason, the writers introduced that storyline and then forgot all about it.  The "I see dead Lori" angle needs to go away as it adds nothing to the plot.  What exactly has Rick done lately to even warrant his presence on the show?

I actually started to like Carl.  He toughened up, learned to shoot, and was actively contributing to the protection of the group. 

The show can easily pull me back in if they get back to the apocalypse and less on the weak tension in the buildup of a "war" with the lame ass Governor. 

And why are the zombies so cartoonish now?

Because I get a bad feeling that season 3 is going to end with the governor going crazy and wanting to chase down Michonne and the prison group instead of going back to Woodberry setting up season 4 to be full of lame ass Governor storylines.

We're on the same wavelength.

I don't hate the show by any means, but at this point I'm pretty luke-warm on it.

Season one had action. It had a story. It moved along. Starting with Rick waking up to the Apocalypse and trying to figure out WTF happened was exciting. Figuring out the "science" behind what took place to cause all of this and how the zombies are created at the CDC. Lots of nomadic wandering from cities to rural countryside on an actual mission with actual purpose, as opposed to just wandering around for survival. That was interesting. Additionally, if we are going to focus on the interpersonal melodrama, the Rick/Lori/Shane dynamic was actually an interesting one. The best friend's ultimate betrayal. Who's the baby daddy? Shane being a loose cannon. Again, all interesting.

Now it just seems like there is just zero plot. There's a town called Woodbery, led by a corrupt asshole. Then there's a prison where the protagonists reside. They're going to clash at some inevitable point in the future. That's about the long and short of the entire season. Which sadly, is infinitely more exciting than what took place in Season 2...

fudge.  May have lost me there. 

Spoilers:

The finale was shoot.  Andrea was the big ending?  Who fudgeing cares about that roostery bitch that sleeps with whatever asshole she comes in contact with?  She got the hero's goodbye and didn't deserve it.

The governor is still alive.  That was one redeeming part though - he finally became a legit psycho villain.  But again, the governor's lingering around again keeping the show from moving forward. 

And they haven't left the prison.  In fact, they brought the needy folks to the prison.  Woodbury had gardens and houses and bathrooms and hot showers and supplies but naw.  fudge that shoot.  We want 8x5 cell blocks with zombies all over the place with people we don't know.

And Carl.  fudgeing Carl. 

And Ghost Lori still around. 

And 30 people storming the prison and running freely across the lawn but Glenn and Maggie with machine guns can't hit one person. 

Show is lame. 






I'll still watch the season 4 premier.

My problem with their plan was that you had to know the Gov was going to smash and burn the place...and he did (blew up the guard towers, smashed the gates, breached the security doors).  So, why plan on going back to the (now trashed) prison?  You either have a plan to trap them in the yard and pick them off or you abandon the booby-trapped prison and have a much better plan for making sure the Gov and his troops get locked inside with the biters.

Helping widders and orphans off a gorram bus?  Pussy.

Bonus points for making Andrea shoot herself in the head, but it's still a net loss overall.

Not sure how they will write their way out of this crock of shoot, but best of luck to them.  They have exactly two episodes next season to make this better or I am out.

I thought it was good because it progressed the story.  Ever since season 1, Rick character is dealing with an internal struggle.   Choose to say screw everyone else and only look out for himself, or be a leader defend others who need help.  Killing Shane and the passing of his wife pushed him over the edge.  In the finale, he came to the realization that he needs to be the protector for himself and Carl's sake.  Hence, he didn't see Lorrie's (sp?) ghost anymore.   I liked it.

Norman Reedus, everyone's beloved crossbow-wielding zombie killer on The Walking Dead, talked to EW about the forthcoming season of the hit AMC series.

He told the outlet: “They’ve introduced a way to make the zombies scary again. They’re terrifying. The new threat is just unreal.”


What "new threat" could he be referring to?

Reedus goes on to say that, this season, "The structure of the writing is a bit different. It’s so intense. These are our best scripts so far.”

Trailer looks good though.  Zombies are back.  Herds are back.

There shouldn't be anything to it.  It's a hopeless planet with humans trying to survive. 

The pig coming back would have been forced.  Also impossible to pull off.  Only pigs become zombies?  Or all animals?  Insects too?  You swat a wasp and it comes back as zombie wasp?

Yeah, the head in a bag was lame, but I thought that side story was good.  If he had just been chained up like one of Michonne's goons, then it would have worked better.  If I was writing, I would have had her attack Rick with a club or something and Rick kill her.  Then she could thank him for doing what she never had the guts to do herself.

Patrick getting an possible Airborne illness could be a huge change in the show. I really enjoyed the raining Zombie scene in the Big Lots. Oh & the reason so many walkers are crowding around the fence is because someone is feeding the walkers live rats.

Same here and not even breaking bad hangover. 

Just meh.

I don't care about any of the stories. 

Farmer Rick doesn't motivate me. Neither does emoting Rick. He's outlived his usefulness. Kill him now.
I (like most) despise Carl. Kill him two seasons ago.
Michone is a one-note parody.
They're trying too hard to humanize Darryl.
Sick of gimpy grampa Jones and his intonations of wisdom.
Hot girl was much more interesting before she became part of a love story.
Carol, eh, she was weak before.
Teddy Bear Tyrese is expendable and way worse than TJ
Isn't one angry black woman enough?
Drunk medic... pfft.
Phineas with the flu? Yawn.

Maybe it gets better, but if they were hoping to hook new viewers last night, that wasn't the way to do it.

The show was better with Dale, TJ and even skank Andrea -- who I hated.

I caught myself texting and looking up stuff on my phone during the show last night.  Was just flat boring. Flat. And boring.

Oh, a stick through a zombie eye? Yeah. Seen that. Stepped on a zombie's head? Seen that too. 

The stupid head in the bag thing really pushed it into stupidity for me.  That was just bad.  Severed head isn't gonna live.  Sorry.

For once, we agree on something entertainment related.

I'm getting tired of the show. No plot seems to ever develop. The Governor stuff, despite what was said in here, is one of the few plotlines that kept it interesting.

I've said it before, but Season 1 was interesting. Threw you in the middle of this crazy zombie apocalypse trying to figure out what the hell went down. Rick woke up to a world overrun, and we slowly were learning how it came to be. It was about one man's struggle to survive, and the characters he met along the way. Desperately trying to make it to safety. Trying to learn about what happened. The CDC stuff was interesting.

Now we get entire season-and-a-halfs that take place in one location. Seeing people survive as a community. With the occasional daytrip out-on-the-town to stab things through zombie heads. But the community stuff is not even interesting. At least with Woodberry, there was an element of, How would a society be built if we were starting from scratch and under these odd circumstances. Still, I feel like that wasn't really even explored. I guess they're getting into that a little with the prison community.

I just feel like the show has been reduced to 45 minutes of talking about nothing of any consequence, and 15 minutes of zombie attack scenes that we've seen over and over and over again. I need plot advancement. I need storyline. I need them to make some sort of progress.

I just see it as a live action video game.  Kill some shoot.  Create problems.

Our next problem is obviously some kind of new plague. 

I'd love for the show to take on a better plot, but I don't think the budget would allow it.  Give us a rumor of a cure being found in Arizona.  Or a rumor of a city unscathed and still functioning normally.  A drifter saying that the ocean's salt water repels the walkers.  Then have Rick and Carl or whoever try to get there.  Going through crazy shoot and dealing with psychotic humans along the way. 

The governor was awful.  Most boring character I've ever seen on TV.  It was mainly the terrible acting.

Quote
The trinity of new cast members for "The Walking Dead" is complete. "Southland" star Michael Cudlitz has been cast in the show as Abraham in the fourth season of the zombie apocalypse show.

Abraham joins Eugene, the recently cast Josh McDermitt, and Rosita (Christian Serratos), in a trio that crosses paths with the main group. In the comics, Abraham eventually becomes Rick's right-hand man. It will be interesting to see how that translates to the show. Prior to the outbreak, Abraham was a sports coach and member of the military.

Cudlitz spoke to TV Line about the casting and how difficult it's been to keep it a secret. "I was laying low because [Abraham has] a very iconic look," he says. "It would be very easy for somebody to put the pieces together if they saw me strolling around [near the show's set.] So I was staying very close to the hotel. And I didn't hang out with any of the other castmembers."

The episode that introduces Abraham, Eugene and Rosita has yet to be announced. "The Walking Dead" Season 4 premieres Sunday, October 13, at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.

And it shouldn't be. 

Breaking Bad was all about character development.  I barely care for any of the characters in a post-apocalyptic show.  Just give me zombies, gore, some crazy scenarios, and people getting killed.  Carol can go from sensitive to hardass to poet to half-woman, half-machine.  Don't care.  She either needs to be killing zombies or having her throat ripped out.

I think that may be the difference between a zombie movie and a zombie TV series.

With a movie, you have a limited amount of time.  So you show the crazier parts of a zombie apocalypse.  Killing, gore, survival instincts, etc.  And at the end of most zombie movies, there usually is some sort of resolution.  Maybe not a cure in which zombies are now gone, but the characters are left in a safer place, and it is presumed that their lives will not be as crazy from here on out due to them adapting to the situation and figuring out how to stay safe.  They figure out how to deal with the situation in some sort of way other than just running around and killing zombies.  But the violence is what the majority of the movie is about because of the shorter period of time that the movie shows us, and so that's what the genre has traditionally been about.

What a TV series, it's an ongoing thing that covers a much longer period of time than a movie.  Sure, you could just make it non-stop crazy violence, but that's not realistic.  At some point, people are going to figure out how to deal with this, at least temporarily if not permanently.  You can't realistically be fighting all of the time, especially when energy is running low because you don't know where your next meal is going to come from.  You're going to have to find a place to hunker down.  You're going to have to figure out a way to be safe.  And people are going to bitch and bicker with one another about how to best do these things.  People are going to try to deal with this type of life in one way, then change their minds, then change it again.  People are going to go crazy.  People are going to be whiny bitches.  And that has to be part of the story if you want to make it a realistic, ongoing TV series.

Yes.  People are going to always try to find a place to hunker down, and if they find one, the show is over.

Which is why the prison needs to be stormed.  Give me a big herd of zombies breaking the fence. 

Or how about this?  They run out of supplies and they've ransacked the surrounding areas.  Time to move on.

This kind of story works with movement.  The threat of zombies or humans should always be ruining that sense of safety.  That was the problem with season 3.  Everyone was safe except we knew a battle was brewing.  So we were expecting danger that didn't come until the very end.  It was lame.

I'm happy with the direction the show is going now.  Zombies are pushing in the fence.  There's a flu going around.  Maybe they'll have to pack up and move on.  That's the spark that keeps me interested.

I agree.  At the same time, you need those slow moments where things appear to be over and character interaction occurs.  Otherwise, you're never fully introduced to new characters who will play important parts.  Or you won't know why character A saved character B, but not character C.  Or you won't know why character A suddenly had a change in personality.  Or you don't really give two shoots about any of the characters because you don't know much about them, so character deaths no longer matter.

Which is why I think the show has to deviate from action and danger from time to time over the long run, unlike zombie movies which primarily focus on action and danger over the short run.

I was slightly concerned when there were three or four back-to-back scenes of couples (new and old), but as the show continued past those scenes, it didn't evolve into a soap opera'esque relationship drama.  I agree that they're moving things along relatively well so far.

So who's the psycho?

It would be easy to say ole Carl, since we have seen the budding serial killer on the rise from the beginning.

But he was with Rick.  (I think). And he's too obvious. 

All the mains were out stabbing zombies thru the eye (which, about damn time - I've said from the beginning they should have had a daily fence clearing party).  But it needs to be someone we know or have been introduced to, or else there's no shock value.

Maybe the singing chick?  She is awfully attached to Judith - gotta protect the babe, right?

Thoughts?

It's still entertaining enough to make me tune in.  Maybe now that Rick has shaken off the Nobel Peace Prize Kumbaya mode, things will pick up.

I can't stand those after-show specials AMC tries to push.  Maybe Manson being loaded made it worth watching.

Loved it tonight.  The Carol storyline is retarded, but the million man zombie march was great.  Also love the preview for next week.  One group is running for their lives.  Looks like Rick and Carol have to go out for supplies on their own. 

I do wish one of the people with Darryl was a minor character.  One of them needs to die, and I doubt it's Ty since he has to go after Carol.  It won't be DeAngelo since he's a decently known actor who is knew to the show.  Definitely won't be Michonne or Darryl. 

Rick sucks though.  He's a waste of screen time.  I was hoping for some kind of real detective work in figuring out who killed Karen, but nope.  Just some random looking around and then finding blood on the door.  They could have evolved his character there.  The Detective Zombie Killer.  But nah.  Just same ole bad accent, do nothing guy.

Kind of more surprised by the Governor's death than Hershel's.

The Governor was the driving force. The villain. It's like killing off the Joker.

I didn't realize he was ever killed off in the comics.

I know the stories are very different, but was it about at this point in the series where he was killed, or was it much later?

In the comic, Michonne tortures the Governor for awhile before he is able to find the prison, but after he has already met Rick's group when they come to Woodbury.  Once he does find the prison, the Governor makes an assault on the prison, fails, retreats, and then comes back with a tank.

The second assault is a bloody massacre that leaves the prison uninhabitable, and eventually the Governor's group turns on him and kills him.

So he does die in the comic about the same time that he did in the series, although the comic probably didn't go through the plot as quickly as the TV series.

In the comics, the Governor is killed almost halfway through the series by Lilly during the assault on the prison.

From my perspective, the TV series and comic followed fairly closely in TV seasons 1 and some in 2 but the TV series spent to much time in plots and story arcs.  It wasn't until Sunday's episode before things started to resemble the comic, again.  The tank...Carl and Rick looking back at the prison...Herschel dying though being shot by the governor.  Things different to note...Lori was killed in the prison assault...Andrea is still alive too and is much a very important part in the comics, presently.

The show will benefit greatly getting out of the prison.

Also, splitting up the groups will hopefully force them all to go different directions.  I think The Walking Dead could benefit from a Game of Thrones type of storytelling.  No more long winded conversations between two characters.  There are so many different places to touch on and if the writers were smart, they'd deviate further from the comics and start killing most of them.

So, Darryl, you're a shoot head redneck who has survived as the badass in a zombie apocalypse.  You find yourself secluded in the woods alone with what may be one of the last attractive 17 year olds on the planet, and she's in the mood to get drunk and do things she knows she's not supposed to do. 

And you decide to throw a temper tantrum and shoot arrows at a zombie. 

Not the worst episode in the series, but the sexual tension they decided to build in that episode only to end with abso-fudgeing-lutely nothing of importance occurring was extremely lame.

And I believe Georgia's age of consent is 16 or 17 if we're going to get nitpicky about it.

I FINALLY FINALLY got caught up tonight. Cold meds gave me insomnia, so I watched six straight hours.

I liked it. I like the separate groups, each having adventures, getting their survival groove back.

I like the red headed Sergeant. Do NOT LIKE the idiot savant Elvis. But Sarge is ok.

I had been screaming to take the kid out WELL before Carol had to. That was way overdue. People on FB were all aghast about it, but she was a damaged PSYCHOPATH. How would you ever sleep again around her? 

I like the Terminus angle. But it is gonna be dark as hell, I think.  I'm thinking something like Misery. Or Bates Motel. 

Side note:  how many of you caught that Mary is Tasha Yar from ST:NG?  She had sex with a damn android on that show, which clearly indicates she ain't right.  So I have high hopes for teh crayzees.

Yeah, I'll stick it out, yet again. Hope this finale does not suck.

The finale also means that True Blood Final season and Longmire Season 3 are on deck.  I know there are mixed opinions on True Blood here, but if you aren't watching Longmire, you're missing out. I even won Sani over; not only is he watching the shows, he's read all the books too, and they are Awesome.

So I am happy and satiated for now. But they better not fudge up the season finale.

Someone on FB posted that the pic was Mary. The other paintings were of sunflowers, like are found in Terminus, and two rabbits, a la Lizzie. Another was the white dog Beth and Daryl saw.

I do not get why Beth took off and left Daryl. Makes no sense. If he had wanted to jump her, he could have already. She's a nut job anyway.

Beth didn't.  Was kidnapped. And I'd have been doing her in that house. 

Rumor I've heard lately is that Carl dies tonight.  Supposedly was let slip on some talk show (there are so many of them now).  Doubt it happens but if it does, I predicted it first.

Sorry if this ruins it for you (spoiler but not really but it is), but Carl is the only safe character.  The comic writer has said so since starting the series.  Maybe the TV show will do it right and kill him, but I doubt it.

Season finale thoughts -

- The last line was lame as shoot, but supposedly it's from a big moment in the comics where Rick says, "They're fudgeing with the wrong people" which would have been 100 times better. 

- I liked this half of season 4 more than seasons 2 and 3 and 4.5.  I still don't trust the show.  I wouldn't be surprised to see the first four episodes of next season involving conversations inside the train car. 

- What the hell was the point of the farming scenes?  Just to show that they're the good guys?  I was waiting for a big reveal with Carl's hat.  Like the hat fell off because Carl had a grenade hidden inside and it was going to be the escape plan for season 5 episode 1.  But no.  Just a weak attempt at deep dialogue.

On the aftershow, dude said they shot it this way a bunch of times but the FCC said no.  Didn't say no to Breaking Bad, but it was on an hour later so maybe that was the trick.  Only shot it one time the way it was finally shown.

- I liked this half of season 4 more than seasons 2 and 3 and 4.5.  I still don't trust the show.  I wouldn't be surprised to see the first four episodes of next season involving conversations inside the train car. 

There's lots of conversation, but people keep getting offed so that's ok I guess. We still don't know where Carol, baby and Tyrese are, whether Beth took the car (how'd she learn to drive if she did because she was 14 when this started) or she was taken.  We don't know why there are still lone survivors wearing glasses wandering the woods.  Or why you'd stay in the freaking woods in the first place. Or why you wouldn't sleep in trees because the shambling zombies can't climb. Or why you couldn't just get some high ground and defend it. Or why.. there's a lots of whys that that don't make sense to me.  But I can get over that.

- What the hell was the point of the farming scenes?  Just to show that they're the good guys?  I was waiting for a big reveal with Carl's hat.  Like the hat fell off because Carl had a grenade hidden inside and it was going to be the escape plan for season 5 episode 1.  But no.  Just a weak attempt at deep dialogue.

Allegedly to illustrate the shift in the Rick persona from Farmer Dan to Rick the Ripper. To show that no matter what he thought, the old ways are over. Got to be a stone killer to survive in the post-outbreak world.  Shift of focus from thrive to merely survive at whatever cost that might be to others.  Except soylent green. No thanks on that.

Basically what Kaos said: 

You could tell that they wanted to say "fudgeing with".  Obvious as shoot.  It would have been pretty dramatic. 

The farming scene was why Herschel had to die.  Herschel was always the pacifist.  Always Rick's conscience.  Herschel was old and wanted to be settled down again.  Thought he'd be safe behind the fence.  Thought Glenn and Maggie could pop out some little half breed kids and he could dandle them on his one good knee.  After all they had been through, Rick wanted so much to believe.  He had Judith to think about, and was wanting to connect with Carl again, and keep him from turning into the psycho serial killer we all know is coming.  He knows the Gov is still out there, but is gonna leave that to Michonne.

So they put away their swords and picked up their plowshares and commenced to farmin'.  They form an HOA.  And lo, for a while, it was good.

Then Herschel gets Rick to bring in the pigs.  And the pigs get the flu and people get the flu and half the group dies and it all starts to unravel.  And Carol kills two people.  And Lizzie is torturing rats.  And another string unravels.  And the fences cave in, and more people get eaten and the thread is unraveling on its own at a pretty fast clip, and Rick is helpless.  He doesn't want stone cold Rick to come back.  He's worried about Carl.

And then the Gov shows up and blows up the prison and whacks off Herschel's head.  All the happy little farmers are scattered to the four winds and those who aren't shot or eaten are on the run and desperate again.  Rick feels the demon coming again, and when the deliverance crew shows up, Rick feeds the demon.  That was some desperate sick shoot right there, and it was absolutely perfect.  When you gaze long into an abyss the abyss also gazes into you - so when faced with losing his son in the most heinous way possible, Rick goes full on zombie.  I loved the fact that he sat there for a while and had a long conversation with Daryl without cleaning the blood off his entire face.  Pretty awesome.  Honey Badger Rick don't give a shoot.

And the people in Terminus are not going to know what hit them.  With the redheaded Sergeant and Daryl by his side, I believe the time for conversating is over.  Rick is gonna do what the censors wouldn't let him say, and fudge some shoot up.  Carol and Tyrese are still loose, as far as we know, so there's a wild card right there.  I'd feel better if Daryl was on the outside looking in, but Carol is looking into the abyss too.

I think next season should be epic.

Tyrese has a hammer.  That could come into play.

The show has been on from start to finish on one of the cable channels this weekend.  I haven't watched any of the episodes, but at various times I've turned over and watched a few minutes here and there when there was nothing else on or I was bored. 

It dawned on me in the middle of the night last night that despite our complaints about the pace and the way the stories were being told, a whole lot of stuff has happened in the series.  Way more than I would have thought.

Rewatching first 2 seasons so far because my life is just that exciting. First let me say thats good shoot. Couple things I've picked up on the 2nd time around...

When T dog gets cut and gets an infection, Daryl pulls out a bag of Merel's supplies and mentions meth. Its blue.

After Sophia is found. Rick begins to doubt himself. When talking about leading the group on a wild goose chase in search of Sophia, He tells Lori, "I was just out chasing a ghost in the woods. "

I also have a theory about the show being better on Netflix. Obviously aside from the commercials, not having a weeks worth of anticipation in between shows kind of relieves the pressure of advancing the storyline. In other words, I don't seem to be as worried about the pointless conversations/filler. Instead I just enjoy it for what it is, which is a pretty damn good show.

I mentioned this earlier in this thread.  I watched seasons 1 and 2 on Netflix and was hooked.  I was shocked to come here and read that people thought season 2 was lame, slow, and boring.  Then I watched season 3 and noticed the pacing issues.

Thankfully. Not the setup part. But the fact that the show finally moved at a watchable pace. The past few seasons would have spent 16 hours telling the exact same story they just told in one. It would have been every scene we just saw, except with 15 hours of pouting and boring conversations between the lead characters. Maybe a few extra meaningless zombie attacks, in which the protagonists fight of 10+ at a time each to fill up the "In Memoriam" scene on Talking Dead.

I like that they brought it with this episode and was like "Here's a thing. And it's gone. Moving on to the next thing." I hope that pace continues.
Title: Re: The Walking Dead
Post by: XMember on October 13, 2014, 02:02:22 PM
I think the whole point of Terminus was to show that you can't turn your back on ANYONE anymore, not the living, not the dead.  There is no sanctuary, it's total Lord of the Flies, society ain't ever gonna be like it was.  It is truly "Butcher or Cattle".  I think this will change completely the way the little group interacts with others. 

Then... add in the doc with his "I might be able to fix this" and you have polar opposite mindsets.  Something has to give.

Plus, as with the Governor, we did not see the guy Rick promised to kill with a red handled machete actually die - we saw him go down.  But he was on a roof - as long as the door isn't opened, they may not be walker food.

Meh. Six one way, half a dozen the other. Had the story thus far been told in the manner described above, people would just be complaining it was too fast paced and not enough of the characters' personal struggles were being hashed out. 

I'm of the opinion that the episode could only function at the faster pace because of the prior seasons' design of slowing down to build the story. In a way, the Season 5 premier could have easily been the Season 4 finale.

And now its time Rick became the butcher.

Its been a while since I have watched season 1 but I would agree partly just because season 1 was what got me hooked on the show. It has been a while since the action was much more fasted pace like last nights episode.

I still can't stand the numerous commercial. That shoot gets irritating. 5 mins of show, 5 mins of commercial.

Great episode.  I feel like the final half of last season helped the show find its niche. Hopefully it keeps this pace.

I don't know how the comic book plot line goes, but I hope the group now embarks on a journey to Washington.  That's what this show needs.  Quests.  A purpose.  We've seen the "just survive" angle, and for the most part, it's boring and they've exhausted the "everyone is shootty but Rick's group" story lines. 

You can do a lot with scenery changes.  Move into the Smokey Mountains or the coast of South Carolina.  Do more with massive herds like the one Darryl's group stumbled on last season. 

Also, a Last of Us angle could be nice.  Have the group find someone who's been bit but didn't turn. 

I like the promise though.  Let's hope it keeps up.

There are very few cultures in the history of man that were all "no big deal" in re cannibalism.  If these folks have gone that far down the rabbit hole of "FUBAR", then yeah.  TO quote the noted philosopher Jayne Cobb, "Eating people alive? Where's that get fun?"  You'd be doing these sick bastards a favor.  Per Algonquian Indian legend, they will just turn into a Wendigo anyway. And whenever Indians look at you and say "Dude, that's SICK..." you have achieved something.

Quote
A Wendigo is a demonic half-beast creature appearing in the legends of the Algonquian peoples along the Atlantic Coast and Great Lakes Region of both the United States and Canada. The creature or spirit could either possess characteristics of a human or a monster that had physically transformed from a person. It is particularly associated with cannibalism. The Algonquian believed those who indulged in eating human flesh were at particular risk; the legend appears to have reinforced the taboo of the practice of cannibalism. It is often described in Algonquian mythology as a balance of nature.

Zombies AND Wendigos?  Too much.

And whenever Indians look at you and say "Dude, that's SICK..." you have achieved something.

Zombies AND Wendigos?  Too much.

Me. 

Church angle was pretty good though I picked up early on that the priest had locked his congregation out. 

Hate the Terminus bullshoot.  It would have been fine to have Terminus be part of two episodes.  Burn it down and be done with it.

I also fully expect them to save Bob, go back to the prison to retrieve Herschel's leg, and find a cyborg-Governor amassing an army of douchebags to hunt down Rick's crew.

He had a gun in his back pocket.  Camera made sure the audience saw this.

I'm thinking a great way for Terminus to be disposed.  I would be okay with that.  That would be an entertaining way to keep Terminus around.  They just keep getting sicker and sicker until they die.  Then turn and eat people like they always wanted to.

There's a lot of belief to suspend when following a story about a group surviving an obliterated world and a virus that transformed the dead into reanimated flesh-eating corpses, all at once and apparently all over the globe simultaneously. That some accountants and office managers, with no discernible wilderness survival skills prior to said apocalyptic event, might resort to cannibalism as a means to survive is not one of them.

I have the most trouble believing the walkers eyes never decompose.

Yeah I don't like it either, honestly.  I could see a large group succumbing to cannibalism if they were starving to death while also dealing with assholes messing with their group.  But their reaction to a few bad guys was, "fudge this, we're eating EVERYBODY!"  Never seen that before in history or literature.

While I agree, the sociopathic personalities seem excessive. We've seen that from countless examples of popular psychology that people do messed up stuff to other people, when given the power. However, their initial modus operandi wasn't just to "eat everybody". I think they just realized they couldn't keep themselves going any other way. By this point, food and ammo are scarce in this world and the knowledge to produce it gone. So when it came down to dying or living, they gave those who found their way to Terminus a choice to become a part of them, and if they refused... well, they became a part of them in a worse way. TW alluded to trapping to survive and that's exactly what Terminus was, a funnel trap.

And based on the type of people there, it was the most effective they could muster. Its easy to talk about making spears, and rabbit traps and shoot like that but the reality is, being consistently successful in both creating and using those primitive techniques to catch wild game is low even for a survivalist.

Now throw in Bob from IT, Jane the Bank Examiner, mom, dad, and 50+ other random folks... that's a lot of rabbits to throw rocks at.

BTW, knowing your opinion is already made, I'm not trying to change your mind. Its just fun to talk about.

What is real? How do you define 'real'? If you're talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then 'real' is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain.

SO - last week's show. 

Bob's laughing scene was EPIC.  Good for him, not going out with a whimper but with a hearty fudge YOU.

I loved that Rick kept his promise, but wish he had taken it outside.  I have to say I agree with Father Gabriel.

Does anyone see those that left on the Eugene Machine as the spinoff we have been hearing rumors about? 

The whole Beth story line they showed in the trailer looks like it could be another cluster fudge.  She is not good as a main character.

I am curious as to who Daryl has hiding in the woods.  Unless it's Beth and the trailer was showing flashback...?

And I am ready for some Morgan.  Finally a black man besides Tyrese that won't be zombie bait right off the bat.  And we all know that mofo is nuts.

I enjoyed the episode. First thing I did is record it so I can catch up by fast forwarding through all the commercials. Sorry, that bugs me.

Bob is cool. He went out in style.

Although it does seem a bit over the top to have a blood bath in a place of worship, Maggie was right when she stated its just four walls in a roof. It has been that way since the priest locked his doors to the congregation as they were dying outside. Although, I agree with your reasoning as to have the bloodbath outside. I can't shake that feeling even though the show is going for that shock factor.

I'm thinking Rick and those left behind will catch up to the bus sooner or later but a spin off might make sense in order to get everybody some face time.

The Beth thing is confusing a little but I'm thinking that this is a flashback.

I think Morgan is with Daryl and Carol and they know where Beth is.

I'm ready for the show to go completely off the rails.  These are the things upon which I ponder:

1) Where are the babies and kids?  Surely every dead person in the world was not grown to maturity.  I'd like to see zombie children, teens, babies and such dispatched in the same head smashing manner as all the adults that have been encountered.  Since the opening scene there hasn't been a zombie kid.  Need to come upon some. 

2) Starving?  Really?  What happens when people abandon an area in the south?  Deer turn it into an orgy of Caligulaean proportions.  They overrun it.  In reality there would be so many deer in the woods Rick and his crew could ride them around like ponies.  They have guns. They have arrows. Build a damn tree sand, put out some salt and eat well for days.  And where are all the cows?  The horses? 

3) Where are the dogs, cats, coyotes, raccoons, possums and turtles?  Where are the fish?  As abundant as the land in Georgia is?  Food everywhere.  But where ARE the dogs?  Did every domesticated dog in the entire US go to the rapture? 

4) WHY fudge around in the woods for years?  The Governor's plan was best.  Wall off a small city, put up sentries and start to gravitate back toward a civilized society.  Use the time you're not fighting zombies and eating pine cones to work on radios and communication devices.  See if there's anything out there. 

5) Why not get a tank or something like an armored personnel carrier.  Gareth and his pop gun would have been flattened in a heartbeat.  Drive around like Sherman heading to Atlanta.  If the entire place truly is covered in the undead, round up the people you like, find some women you'd like to impregnate and get to an island.  One way in and out.  That would solve the whole thing.

Would be cool, but:

http://screenrant.com/walking-dead-spinoff-character-descriptions/ (http://screenrant.com/walking-dead-spinoff-character-descriptions/)

Quote
In the coming years, AMC will roll out spinoffs to two of its most successful TV series: Better Call Saul (the continuation of the Breaking Bad universe) and an untitled companion to The Walking Dead. While the former will feature a character previously introduced on its predecessor, the Walking Dead spinoff won’t be connected to the current show – other than existing in the same zombie-infested world.

Robert Kirkman, Gale Ann Hurd, and David Alpert of The Walking Dead will serve as executive producers on the new series, with Dave Erickson (Sons of Anarchy) as showrunner. The pilot script, written by Erickson and Kirkman, was well received by AMC, which gave the series the green light earlier this month. Now, new information about the companion’s six central characters has been released.

TVLine is reporting that the Walking Dead spinoff will focus on two small families as well as another character, comprising the six central figures in the spinoff series. There will be the Cabreras, a father and son; the Tompkins, a single mother with two teenaged children; and Andrea Chapman, who is reeling from her own personal tragedy.

Read the full character descriptions:

    SEAN CABRERA | A Latino male in his early 40s, Sean is a good man trying to do right by everyone in his life.

    CODY CABRERA | Sean’s whip-smart and rebellious teenage son. Known as the angriest kid in town.

    NANCY TOMPKINS | A thirtysomething single mom to two kids, Nancy looks like the girl next door, but there’s an edge to her.

    NICK TOMPKINS | Nancy’s screwed up teenage son. He’s too old to stay home, too scared to flee.

    ASHLEY TOMPKINS | Nancy’s mostly level-headed teenage daughter. Her ambition is in direct proportion to her older brother’s failures. She loves her mom but it’s time to get out of Dodge.

    ANDREA CHAPMAN | A somewhat wilted flower child, fortysomething Andrea — yep, another Andrea! — has retreated to the outskirts of the city to recover after a horrible marriage.

Although The Walking Dead can be considered a dramatic horror series, since it exists in a world filled with zombies, the show leans more heavily on its dramatic elements, such as character development. This has turned The Walking Dead into more of a character drama residing in a horrific world than a cut and dry horror series. It seems the Walking Dead companion will uphold the character-focused tradition by putting familial drama at the forefront of the series.

The combination of Sean and Cody Cabrera may be especially compelling for Walking Dead fans wondering what the character dynamic between Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs) would be like if the latter were older. However, the Tompkins’ will not be without their own tension as it seems the two teenagers, Nick and Ashley, may have often butted heads even before a zombie plague descended on their world. Additionally, it will be interesting to see how Andrea interacts with the two families – as well as how they interact with each other.

Although some aspects of the descriptions for the Walking Dead companion may fall into the realm of tired television tropes, whether or not the finished product does will depend on the show’s development of these characters. We won’t know more until actors and actresses are cast for the roles and more information about the project is released.

The Walking Dead season 5 premieres Sunday, October 12th, 2014 @9pm on AMC. Stay tuned to Screen Rant for more information about the show’s companion series as it becomes available.

There are millions of zombies wandering around eating anything living, so I would imagine that the wildlife populations are being kept in check (if not drastically decimated), and that most remaining animals spend a lot of their time in hiding, not just openly frolicking about in fields because the humans no longer run the world.

A zombie can catch and kill a freaking deer?  I don't think so.  Why would deer be hiding?  They don't hide when humans aren't around now.  But anyhow...

I was surprised.  Thought I liked Beth.  But she couldn't carry that entire episode.  And I didn't care in the least about any of the other people at that freaky hospital -- or their backstories.  It drigged, it dragged, drug. Please give me the farm again over this. 

Explain this to me.  Why is EVERY SINGLE OTHER GROUP Rick's crew encounters some kind of murderous band of freaks?  Except for Herschel, that is.  Would people in a world decimated by a zombie virus really retain the need to murder for the sake of power?  Maybe when some semblance of society was reconstructed then you start to worry about who runs what, but why does it seem that only megalomaniacs are surviving and slicing and dicing their little groups?

People are inherently weak and in need of leadership.  Nature abhors a vacuum and the ruthless fudgeers are the first to start aggregating a power base.

Plus it's easier for the viewing public to digest a simple "we good, errbody else bad" storyline.

It's only very recently that the ballot has overtaken the blade as the method of choice in validating who is in charge. Hell for a large part of of the world, it's still that way today.

As for the bethisode, I agree it wasn't the strongest but can appreciate the change of pace backstory episodes, like this, occasionally provide. I think it suffered mostly because Beth, as a character, isn't as fleshed out or a fan favorite as say a Maggie/Daryl/Rick etc. So a this character-centric episode is doubly affected. Then again, you need episodes like it in order to change that.

I just view it as the setup piece to the season's overall story arc that it is, and enjoy the scenery change from just folks walking amongst trees in the day/folks walking amongst trees in the night.

Agree for the most part.  It was too rushed and poorly written.  The head girl was completely unbelievable.  Maybe she gets away with acting that way the first week of the apocalypse.  After that?  She's just another broad turned slave by the physically stronger men.  Two years later?  She's definitely not imposing her will on everyone. 

And where are the police getting their supplies?  Where are they getting their electricity?  How has the gas not run out yet?  If they're in Atlanta and surviving, wouldn't there be others surviving as well?  No conflicts?  Just three police officers and a doctor and a black slave nurse taking out all of the competition?

The doctor was interesting.  Should have focused more on him.

Don't forget that the virus is in everybody.  Bit, not bit, doesn't matter.  You die, you turn. 

I would imagine the good hearted people wouldn't want to stab their loved ones in the head right after death.  I'm sure most of the good people who did somehow survive wanted to mourn their losses.  Then their loved ones turned and thus was the end of the good people.

The loners, the sociopaths, the selfish folk - they didn't get caught up in funerals, caring for the sick, and rescuing people they cared about.

Yup.

However, subtle hints and the Talking Dead are no excuse for the sloppy editing/directing/ or writing that plagues every 4th or 5th episode.

That said, a weak episode doesn't ruin anything for me. Casting is spot on and the show great overall. Being a fan of the comics, my biggest gripe is due to the fact that certain plot points have simply not been conveyed as well or as impactful on film as on paper. As good an episode as it was, "Four Walls and a Roof" comes to mind.

Knowing the fine job he's done to this point in the comics, I just think Robert Kirkman could use a few more script proofers on the payroll.

It looks though like next week will be the DC bus with some hijinks.  Then the third to last episode will be Rick and the group making their way to Atlanta.  Then the 2nd to last episode will be DC bus group meeting up with Rick somehow on the way to Atlanta.  Then the final episode is rescuing Beth and Carol, except knowing the current writers, they'll get to the hospital only to find Carol is wearing Dawn's head while feeding the police officers to the walkers. 

No clue what goes on in the comics, but as a TV show with limited greenlight time, they should take off to DC.

Yeah, makes sense why Daryl hasn't shown who that person was just yet. I don't think Carol is really hurt though. I'm thinking she is faking just to get in the hospital.

Beth is so one dimensional.  She started out with that creepy psycho vibe back on the farm, and now they are trying to rehabilitate that - but all she does is stare around wide eyed at stuff. Someone tries to shove a lollipop in my mouth?  He's gone. 

The doctor needs to stick around a little bit too.  He's got a story.

The black nurse kid was much better as a character, and much more personable.  Would have liked to have learned more about him - I hope he, like Tyrese, continues to break the black men gots to die theme. 

Anyone else think the Sergeant looks like a character straight out of a GI Joe comic?  Big, burly, unnaturally ginger hair in a brush cut, massive moustache.  All he needs is a slimy chewed cigar in the corner of his mouth and he could be an action figure.

Didn't figure there was much chance he knew what to do. 

But I didn't really need the backstory on Big Red either.  It didn't tell me anything and was awkwardly interspersed with scenes from the current time. 

Also didn't need to see him laying the ginger pipe to Mexicali Soup.

I think it was supposed to be obvious that Mullet Head was a liar.  I mean, if it wasn't, that's the worst constructed character of all time.  And even though The Walking Dead has come close to constructing some of the worst characters of all time, I don't think they'd be that bad at setting up a plot twist. 

I liked the focus on Abe.  I think we could have used more of that in this show.  Kind of a Lost thing, but as long as they didn't overdo it like Lost, it would have been interesting to see how each character was affected by the outbreak. 

And the sex scene was gold.  I was in tears when they cut to Mullet Head peaking through the books.

It was obvious he was lying, but because of Abe's need to protect someone/have a mission the force of Abe's conviction convinced the others.  What does suicidal Abe do now that he's rudderless again?

Lead the fight?

They have to do something with Mullet Head.  Seasons 2 and 3 Walking Dead would have him mope around for the rest of the series until he's finally killed by a walker or Governor-villain.

This version of Walking Dead?  I foresee his MacGyver abilities being used to blow shoot up.  Abe and Mullet Head lead the charge against the Walkers.  fudge surviving.  Time to go on the offensive.

OK, so I had no trouble believing Mullet Head's story right up until this episode.  I just figured him for some idiot savant type - with him saying he is from Houston, and with our huge medical center, that was not a stretch for me.  Lots of incredibly smart people wander around down there with their fly unzipped.  He does seem MacGyver-esque at times, and the water hose thing was brilliant - and also one of the coolest scenes they've done in a while in terms of dealing with a herd.  So mullet and country accent aside, I didn't have a problem with it.

What tipped me at the beginning of this episode was the thing about missiles and deployment and "It's classified".

And yeah, not sure what the Sarge does now.  Getting to DC was his reason for living.  Without a mission, he's lost.

You didn't. Basically, the last two weeks have been setting up the last two episodes for this half of the season. Thats right, only two more until the mid season finale.

The only real new info is the unknown person with Daryl coming from the wood line is Noah, the young black dude that escaped from the hospital. They haven't showed it yet but one of the last scenes was these two riding back to Rick in a truck for some back-up. Oh, and Carol got hit by the only car on the ATL streets. That is how she ended up with Beth.

The show is stuck in the ickiest of mud puddles with racing slicks.

Finally got to sit down tonight and watch this past Sunday's show. I liked it. I like the ones with explorations of Atlanta in full on survival mode. I even like the back story episodes when you get new little details.

It beats walking thru the woods.

I gotta say - the long view shot of post apocalypse Atlanta always creeps me out. I've made that drive with that view too many times.

Here's another thought. What happens to zombies in winter - the snow?  Surely their tissues and blood and stuff would freeze solid. I wonder if that would be enough to kill them?

Governor kept heads in fishbowls, and when Michonne broke them, they attempted to bite her, so I'm guessing that being underwater doesn't effect them at all.

I've wondered about snow as well.  Like the safest place to be on land in the Zombie Apocalypse would be Alaska.

This is from the Walking Dead wiki:

Quote
The characters have acknowledged and discussed the lack of undead mobility and presence during the Winter months

Seems like the show could at least acknowledge that shoot cools down in the winter.  Maybe even make that part of the show.  Have to find safe shelter to ride out until the winter. 

It also presents a plot issue.  If humans get 2-3 months in the South or 4-6 months in the North of life without walkers, how hard would it be to put together a safe community with plentiful supplies?  You could move to North Dakota and in a few months time with enough people put life back together.  shoot, find an engineer and I bet you could get the power turned back on. 

There are enough logical leaps in the story to just say the walkers aren't affected by the cold.  Would close up those plot holes quickly.

You could move to North Dakota

You thought it was bad at Hershel's Farm?  Imagine a season when they are in Fargo, and if you go outside for more than 20 minutes, you get frostbite.  They'd be stuck in one place for 6 months.

Exactly.  If nothing else, the liquid - blood, whatever - inside them would freeze at some temperature.  I'd be curious to know if they "reanimate' after they thaw out. 

If I am the group in ATL, I find a way to get further up north and out of those GA woods where there's a walker behind every tree.  Also - what did our little band of survivors do during the winter?  No way to heat that prison - can't light a fire inside.  No hot water.  Didn't see anyone in coats and jackets and such.  Given how cold it is for this little Southern girl right now, I'd like to see some writer's take on how we would survive winter during the zombie infestation.

I also can't help but think I would be more organized.  I know everything has been scavenged, but there still have to be resources left untapped.  Get another bus, drain a fuel tank at a gas station, and hit the road.  I remember in The Stand, they drove a wrecker and used it to clear a path down the road for the rest of their convoy. Granted, they weren't dealing with monsters trying to eat them, but with enough of a group  like this bunch has, keeping the herd off you while you move cars cant be that hard.  They are all soft and putrid by now - the firehose scene showed how mushy they really are.  Aside from a fire truck, I still believe Michonne and that bad ass long sword are the way to go.  Never run out of ammo.  Sucks to have to slash and burn your way around every time you go outside, but still... but at this point, they should be used to it.

As for the actual episode -

I thought the Carol back story was pointless.  We already knew just about everything that happened while Carol was gone from the prison except for her holing up in some lawyer's office before the governor attacked.  And who gives a shoot where she went during that time if all she did was sleep? 

And again, this show thinks it's more important than it is.  Did not need the waxing philosophy from Darryl and Carol about changing or whatever bullshoot they were talking about.  Could have easily used those 15 minutes to have another suspenseful action scene in the city.  Neither would be essential to the plot but one at least is exciting and not just two characters talking.

On that note, the whole philosophical, psychological dilemma they were working out ruined the scene with the black kid.  Carol should have shot him.  But if she wasn't going to shoot him, it shouldn't be because they were trying to become better people.  fudge that.  They won't seem like better people when they bust Beth out of the hospital.  But if the black kid made a comment like - "Sorry, I need these weapons to help rescue a friend," then Darryl could say, "No, Carol.  Don't shoot the kid.  He may have information on the people with the crosses on the cars." 

Instead it was, "No, Carol.  We're moral now.  Don't shoot the kid.  Let's lose our kickass weapons that we may never find again."

The mid season finale wasn't bad, although, I was thinking Rick and Daryl were about to empty out of the remaining hospital crew.

I've liked this season so far, but the show last night licked balls. 

Why have the buildup to the handcuffed guy running away last week if all that was going to happen was him getting run down in the street in the first three minutes of the show?  I realize it was designed to showcase how close to the edge Rick really is right now, but it seemed a waste. 

Other things that were a waste:

Tyrese's big confession.  It took six or seven minutes and his sister essentially blew it off.  Why bother with that whole thing if it was going nowhere. 

Beth.  Give her a little bit to do and then murder her.  The whole stabbing of Dawn thing was contrived.  No way Beth takes the chance to start a bloodbath that gets everybody killed.  The girl playing her wasn't a strong actress and (while hot) didn't add much to the show. 

The Beth reaction.  She disappeared early on and for all Mags knew, she had been eaten by walkers or consumed by a cannibal or fed to wild pigs.  There was never even a moment of angst on the part of Maggie.  Don't think she bothered to mention her sister at all or push for the group to go look for her.  Can't remember if she even questioned Darryl about where she was. 

Dawn. As far as big bads go, she was way down the list that includes the governor, Darryl's band of thugs, Merle, Garth (or whoever) and even Shane.  If there really were rogue cops she would have just taken them out. But the show couldn't decide if she was a good guy making bad choices or a bad guy making good ones.  So that all fell flat. 

Armpits.  How is it that all the girls on the show have shaved armpits?  Is there an endless supply of Venus razors out there?

Finally caught up with the show today.

Beth's death pissed me off.  fudgeing Sophia all over again.  The whole season came to a tumbling crash with the new characters having nothing to do with the continuation of the show and the whole plot of saving Beth finishing with her dead on the floor.

The best part of this season was Abe's group going to Washington.  Wrapped that up too soon though.

What concerns me most is the preview for February.  Looks like it's all about surviving in the wild vs. surviving in a civilized environment.  I guess Rick is back to Bad Rick now?  That's probably good for 7-8 scenes of him contemplating life, seeing ghosts, and having emotional discussions with Carl. 

I don't know why I keep watching this show.  I think it's because I know I could do it better.

I started watching this on Netflix over Thanksgiving.  I'm not one who usually gets in to zombie apocalypse story lines so this series never interested me.  After I kept hearing how awesome it was I decided to watch the pilot.  Before I blinked I was through Season 1. 

I'm just over halfway through Season 2 (remember when Rick's wife flipped her car while he shot up the dudes from Philly at the bar?)  I read the first 10 pages of this thread and it was hilarious to read basically the same critiques I had about the "Lifetime" style story lines and ZOMG GET OFF THE FARM ALREADY!!!!1!! criticism. 

I can't wait to fund out why Beth's death is such a big deal.  As of right now she's laying in a bed at the farm with a fever that no cowbell could help.

Seriously, quit watching after season 2.  You will hate yourself if you don't.  Every fudgeing season since, I ask myself why I keep watching.

Bullshoot. 

This season has been excellent so far.  fudge Beth.  She is dead.  They did that for shock value, nothing more.  They systematically kill a character at the end of every season just to get the ratings.

The whole Rick running over the guy in the car was a direct link to the comics. 

Also, I agree with THS.  They need a purpose/quest.

Ugh...what a throw away episode.  Turns out...clutch the pearls...that the SURVIVORS are the walking dead.

Yawn.

These first two episodes make me wish they'd get back to the fudgeing farm.  It's navel gazing at its absolute worst. 

I'm wishing for people to die.  fudge blubbering whiny ass Daryl at this point.  Die.  Maggie, Sasha, Michone, Red, Rick, Carl, the baby all of them.  Gone. 

Leave me with the big boobed lesbian, the mexicali chick, the dude without a cure, Glen, preacher man and possibly Noah or Carol.  who knows... maybe it gets better. 

This is agonizing. 

I was glad to see the ponderous Tyrese go.  I'd gotten tired of his thinking on things.

I'm also sick of seeing them walk through the fudgeing woods.  Why are they in the fudgeing woods CONSTANTLY?  Why do they keep walking around anyway?  And knowing what they know about the nation's climate WHY THE fudge would you head north?  Go south where you don't have to deal with winters to the point that you freeze to death.  Go south, find a place you can get safe -- like a fudgeing island where there's water and you can catch fish -- and set up a community.  THEN try to put a radio together.  Or get a tank/SUV/something and start to see if there's anybody else out there.    And why the fudge is EVERYBODY they run into crazy as fudge?  All the normal people are dead?  All that's left are bands of cannibals or megalomaniacs? 

I'm really getting tired of this show.  I also think the two half-season concept is hurting it.  I'm not in the mood for it in February.  I was in October.

Well, you're pretty normal for message board standards, but still, its been insisted on numerous occasions that you would murder in large numbers if not for the laws preventing it. Perhaps the group preferred freezing up north to the risk of brown-shirting for the Okaloosa Island anti-tomato gulag.

Based on the graffiti in the subdivision ("Wolves are near") and the "W"s carved into the zombie heads at the end of the episode.  I'd say a group of really unpleasant fudgeers calling themselves the Wolves.

The reason I chose them is precisely because they interest me the least.  Primarily because I don't know as much about them.  Maybe they have better stories to tell.  I know what I'm going to get from Rick, Darryl, Maggie and Big Red.  I'm having a hard time caring. 

I like the big boob lesbian because she has an interesting face, ginormous boobs and I think she's a little bit hot.  Of all the ones on there when it came to pairing up, I'd pick her (if she'd have me).

Yep. We hated all the wool gathering and sermonizing from the farm.  We are back to the same talk talk talk shoot again. I'm not surprised that the complaints are similar. In fact if you read what I wrote after this last episode I believe I said "back to the farm"

I didn't like rick then.  Or Lori.  She nearly sucked the life out of the show.  He improved for a while.  But it seems we are just going in circles.  They never learn.  Nothing ever gets better.

Just a bit of info from foxnewsdot I am a gay twerker that has no balls!!!!  I also have no idea how to use the quote function to post stories, so I annoy the piss out of others.  I like male genatalia in and around my mouth. for you Dead Heads in case the Zompocalypse happens.

If a zombie outbreak were to strike US shores, East Coasters should head west ASAP. That recommendation comes by way of Cornell University researchers, who have modeled the statistical mechanics of, yes, zombies and will present their findings at a meeting of the American Physical Society on March 5 in San Antonio.

The researchers used a number of techniques that are used when modeling real diseases, and the abstract ends with this dismal line: "We build up to a full scale simulation of an outbreak in the United States, and discover that for 'realistic' parameters, we are largely doomed." But Phys.Org relays a glimmer of hope by way of Alex Alemi, a grad student involved in the research: He says those who want to remain safe from the undead for as long as they can should head to the northern Rockies.

He explains that while books and movies typically show an outbreak touching all corners of the country immediately, "in our attempt to model zombies somewhat realistically, it doesn't seem like this is how it would actually go down." Yes, major cities could be toast within days, but less populated areas could be unaffected for weeks, and the northern Mountain Time Zone could be safe for months.

"Given the dynamics of the disease, once the zombies invade more sparsely populated areas, the whole outbreak slows down—there are fewer humans to bite, so you start creating zombies at a slower rate," says Alemi.

"I'd love to see a fictional account where most of New York City falls in a day, but upstate New York has a month or so to prepare." (Of course, some people want to be trapped in a room with a zombie.)

Mean cookie Carol seems contrived and forced.

Leering horny Rick seems out of character.

Carl is still alive.

Monosyllabic weepy Darryl has grown tiresome beyond words

Black lives don't matter -- so long Tyrese, T-Dog, Bob and nondescript skinny black boy I don't remember.

Male governor, female governor.  Meh.  Haven't we seen the "so-called utopia destroyed by Rick's mangy band" storyline?

Season 2 was such an abomination that I never returned, just skipped ahead. My problem with this show is that there are far too many characters and subplots to keep it interesting in a given episode. It might be more enjoyable to allow it to play out and binge-watch several episodes at a time minus Matthew McConaghey, Geico and the chicken selling phones.

The morale of the second half was that there is no safety. There is no security. There is no safe place.  Only the strong are going to survive. Try to,pretend it's not happening and you are food for either the dead or the living.

Morgan is.
And those that represent the wolves want ultimate survivors like Morgan and red poncho to help them control the environment around them. How they use the dead as a distraction and a means for their own survival is yet to be fully discovered. Morgan now has that firsthand insight for Rick's group and the weaklings they inherited.

The hows and whys and whens and whos to get Daryl and the salad tosser out of the vehicle don't add up to a possibility.  The fact they made it to the vehicle doesn't add up. 

I agree with Kaos...Morgan is a pussy and so is Glenn.  I am just waiting for the TV series to catch up with Glenn's fate in the comics.

They should have killed off one of the main characters to end the show. 

I miss Andrea.

for me yeah...perhaps my memory doesn't serve me well but Season 1 mirrored fairly well to the comics...perhaps Season 2.  yes, there are parallels through all seasons with the comics but i think the comics portray what people want in the TV series which it had at the beginning. 

for example...baby Judith.  What relevance does she have in the TV Series besides a compassion to the audience.  She doesn't kill.  She doesn't forage for food.  She provides nothing so communities and folks to survive and live in a world of zombies.  The comics got rid of her fairly quickly.

Rick is more of a bad ass with a prosthetic arm too.

With the power of teh internets, I found that the biggest selling issue of the comics was #100, which sold 384,800 issues back in 2012 and remains the highest selling of the series. Even if each unit sold represented one person that's less than half a million people measuring the tv series by the comic. But since many comics readers are collectors and need an extra copy or two to stow in their parent's basement, I'm going to say that number is even smaller.

Compared to the 15.7 million tv viewers who caught the season 5 finale, it's fair to say that far less people measure the show based on its adherence to the comics than do.

Quote
for example...baby Judith.

I'll admit I enjoyed the TV series in a totally different way before I started reading the comics but that isn't due to wishing they'd adhere to them more- it's because they stick to it in ways that mean I now know the major plot points before they're reached. The first 3 seasons were all new territory for me and that made the show really intriguing. I almost want to stop reading the comics to regain a little of that unknown, but nahhh.

I think it boils down to which media you consume first. I'll be the first to admit, I've still never read Jurassic Park... I've seen the movie dozens of times. It's a classic. But most say the book is better. Maybe one day I'll find out but it's not going to make me enjoy the movie any less.

I know most commenters in this thread stopped watching back in 2011, but regardless, if any comic guys caught the second half of this season you should be happy since it was almost a page for page reenactment.

Holy shoot it was so awesome from the jump.  Two riveting episodes.  The acting was a little weak and the SFX isn't as good as it came to be later. 

But those two episodes are why I'm still watching.  I hope they recapture some of that.  Just some. 

I got continuity questions from this though.  Will ponder them for another post.

I think I've reached the zombie saturation point.  I was underwhelmed by the whole thing and not sure I wanted to hang on to the end when I realized it wasn't going to be over at 9:00. 

My exact comment was "Ugh.. 30 more minutes of this?" 

I've threatened to be done with this series several times but I'm losing my patience and willingness to suspend disbelief with things that are just stupid.  I'm about two episodes from pulling the plug and not caring any more.  I got nothing out of Fear Walking Dead and quit on it with no regrets. Yeah, pussy move for not waiting out the whole season, but at least I own it. 

Some of my many, many problems with the show:

1) How are people still fat?  There's no food for months.  Everybody would be borderline skeletal
2) Where did they get water while they wandered the woods?  Where are they shootting?
3) Helium balloons?  Seriously? Where did they get those?
4) Styrofoam cups to pass out water? Seriously?  We're cool with disposables now?
5) If they had flares and an unlimited supply of weapons/gas why didn't they just incinerate the zombies in the quarry?  Draw them out to walk the road?  Ignorant.
6) That baby would be deader than dogshoot.
7) Why is EVERY car they get cranked up to use a piece of shoot beater?  Every car in the world is abandoned.  Are there no BMWs? No decent trucks?
8) With lots in Atlanta full of new RVs, why did Dale pick an old piece of garbage with leaky hoses?  A new one would have given them lots of amenities.  And why not have EVERYBODY riding in one?  Sleep in comfort, keep the zombies out. 
9) How are the girls keeping their hair up and nice? And cut? And shaving those armpits and legs?
10) Where are they getting Tampax?
11) Where are the zombie babies?  Zombie dogs?  Dogs in general?
12) Where is the helicopter from Season 1 Ep. 2? 

I just can't take it seriously enough any more.  Too many gaps.

8) With lots in Atlanta full of new RVs, why did Dale pick an old piece of garbage with leaky hoses?  A new one would have given them lots of amenities.  And why not have EVERYBODY riding in one?  Sleep in comfort, keep the zombies out. 
9) How are the girls keeping their hair up and nice? And cut? And shaving those armpits and legs?
10) Where are they getting Tampax?
11) Where are the zombie babies?  Zombie dogs?  Dogs in general?
12) Where is the helicopter from Season 1 Ep. 2? 

I just can't take it seriously enough any more.  Too many gaps.

Didn't say it was perfect but I do realize its a TV show. Sure there are many things to pick apart but damn, what zombie show/movie could one not pick apart. I do think you make some good points. You should send this over to AMC if you haven't already.

The hype of this show vs what it actually is - is a huge gap.

It is no Breaking Bad. It is no Sopranos. Or any other legendary show. It just isn't that good. As as K has said, its so far out there that its laughable.

The Wolves would be my guess.

They use the dead as soldiers (see the W carved into their foreheads) and come through to clean up/pillage after.

That little chick, Enid, that Carl wants to bang.

Agreed...that'll be the exposition of her double-agent status and the start of some tension that will end in Carl murder-death-killing the bitch.

Laughable was Deadwood, and very entertaining.

But I agree this show gets far too much pub. It's good but not can't miss tv. If you dvr it, it is just something to watch when it's convenient, unlike the others you mention.

The guys on Talking Dead kind of hinted The Wolves which tells me its not. Also, the 2nd episode preview is all about Enid out of Alexandria with no Carl to be found, and no Carl to be seen in Episode 1 that I recall.

No.

Thanks to your stellar input I have decided that I will no longer watch the show but will post my criticisms based on what I think probably happened using the repetitive and silly pattern the show has followed over the last however many years. 

The show WAS good.  For two teriffic first episodes.  It has lived off that for far too long.  It doesn't sustain like the other shows mentioned -- Sopranos, Breaking Bad, etc -- did. They grew. And got better.

Casting call for the season finale:

Quote
THE WALKING DEAD, Episode #616

Director: Greg Nicotero

SUBMIT ELECTRONICALLY

PLEASE SUBMIT ALL ETHNICITIES UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED.

30s to mid 40s. A physically imposing, charismatic, brutal, smart, ferocious, frightening, hilarious, inappropriate, oddly friendly, fun loving sociopath that is both a leader of men and a killer of men. He has both a practical and emotional intelligence, he’s a brilliant strategist, he’s pure, dangerous, murderous, often gleeful id, that still has both discipline and a code. And he has a temper that can vaporize people. He’s truly one of the strongest personalities ever…

I saw a black girl with a ninja sword and a permanent scowl.  Some other people.  A horn blowing.  A bunch of zombies attacking and eating people. 

Now, I have no clue why you people have seen the need to discuss this show for 745 pages.  I doubt very seriously it's evolved much from that basic plot.

I'm thinking along the lines of this, at least the sliding under the dumpster. If any of you have it recorded, go back and watch where the intestines get pulled out by the walkers. Little too high up on Glenns body dont ya think?

Wow. Epic.

Best episode in two seasons.  Takeaways:

Glenn is becoming Rick: take charge, do the right thing, badass survivorman. 

Morgan has a reckoning coming now that Carol's on his ass, and I imagine he finds a way to integrate his eastern philosophy with his need to survive. 

The Alexandrians continue to prove to be fudgeups.  Spencer, you gigantic douchebag.

Sam is going to play some role in stopping the Wolves.  Creepy little Children of the Corn motherfudgeer.

The slow buildup to the tower falling into the fence was pretty great.  Missing the big picture (the sawing of the tower supports) for the details (the blood flowing through the bullet hole) was kind of ham-handed, but effective.  I wonder if we see Elvis the psuedo-scientist play some role in defeating the Wolves since he seemed focused on the sound of the sawing in the tower.

Glen and Enid are going to encounter the Wolves (with whom I assume Enid is familiar, if not a member).  I think they'll play it as Enid holding Glenn hostage until they can break away from the marauders.

As promised I quit the show.  I do keep up somewhat with the events.  As the show is now in its mid-season break, let me ask you this.  When I left the show, Rick had just murdered WILTF's husband and Lennie/Morgan showed up as he did it. 

Since that time, what exactly has happened in terms of story advancement?  Chinese boy doesn't die, the stupid wolves attack for no reason, they hatch the dumbest plan in the history of humanity to draw a zombie herd away from the town, the fence falls.  That about it?

I keep wanting this show to be good.  So I caught up.  Not overly impressed. 

Then last night.  A mix of emotional meandering and raw carnage.

Saw many of the things I don't like such as dumb decisions galore.  Michonne has proven twice that if you disarm and disjaw a couple of zombies you can walk unnoticed with your pets.  Why in the hell put on the gumbo ponchos when making slaves would have been much more efficient and safe?

But anyway.  Glaring dumbness aside?  That was an episode that delivered. No way can it keep up that intensity but I thought it was a spectacularly gruesome episode. 

Yes I'm tired of immortal Carl and Teflon Glen getting saved in the most improbable ways.  But still. That was compelling. 

I enjoyed it.  But I fear we will soon return to navel gazing and I quit it again.

I hate the way this show builds momentum, looks like it's going to be good and then just meanders around futzing with people's angst for three or four episodes.  Taking over the satellite place was unrealistic, but good enough.  The whole day with bad accent Maggie, wimpy Carol and ehhh Alicia Witt was tedious and also not probable.  Sunday night was essentially awful except for the arrow through the eye. 

I didn't care about flabby doc other than to wonder what in the hell has she been eating to have an ass that big when there's so little food.  Kill her, let her live, whatever. 

I don't care if Big Red and Sasha are a thing or not. Or that Carol tossed her little cookies at somebody other than Darryl.

Carol, though. Leaving?  BEEYOND stupid. If she doesn't want to kill, fine.  Stay there and make acorn candy.  Nobody was forcing her to go out on runs or to war.  Just do like Morgan.  But wandering out on her own virtually guarantees that she will have to kill -- or quickly die herself.

For all the buildup, the show just dragged and dragged with too many divergent storylines going at once. 

When it FINALLY got to a good part (with less than 15 minutes left) it was good for about 14:40. 

And then?  fudgeing cop out.  fudgeing teaser. 

Who?  Wait until October and find out when we do!  Because we don't know.  We're not sure.  Can we actually kill Darryl or will fans abandon the show?  Do we have to follow the comics or will fans abandon the show?  Will we lose fans if we just off a minor character to make a point?  Who knows?  Wait until October when we finally figure it out ourselves.

For all the buildup, the show just dragged and dragged with too many divergent storylines going at once. 

When it FINALLY got to a good part (with less than 15 minutes left) it was good for about 14:40. 

And then?  fudgeing cop out.  fudgeing teaser. 

Who?  Wait until October and find out when we do!  Because we don't know.  We're not sure.  Can we actually kill Darryl or will fans abandon the show?  Do we have to follow the comics or will fans abandon the show?  Will we lose fans if we just off a minor character to make a point?  Who knows?  Wait until October when we finally figure it out ourselves. 

Such bullshoot.
I'm thinking there are chunks of a bloody mullet attached to Lucille.

Not Carl. Not Rick.  Said if anybody cut up to gouge out his eye and feed it to rick. 

Won't be Maggie.
Won't be rosita.

Eugene.  No. Too obvious.
Abraham. Would be a bigger cop out.
Sasha. Who would care?
Darryl. For all they talk about nobody being safe could they really off the face of the franchise?
Michonne. Eh.
Best bet (and most faithful) is the Asian.   

I'm thinking they will want to twist it though. Backup is Abraham. 

Still a shootty way to end the season.

Eugene wanted to ride in the RV to discuss ammunition production and distribution.

With his one valuable piece of information given up, he's superfluous.

Eugene is gone.
Title: Re: The Walking Dead
Post by: XMember on April 05, 2016, 08:55:10 AM
I'm thinking it's either Eugene or Glenn.  If it's Eugene it's a cop out and a bland story line to start the next season with, which is the only reason I can see it being Glenn.  That would tip the hat to the comics and it will at least grab attention to kick off the new season. 

Selfishly I wish someone would take out Eugene and his Forrest Gump wannabe shtick.

This clue and the one where Carl was talking to Rick just before their capture in the woods, tells me it has to be a big character. Why would Carl make a fuss for anyone except for Rick, Glenn or Daryl. I don't think he would. Hell, Carl is the only one who doesn't look scared shootless.

Oh by the way, Norman Reedus has a new show of his own on AMC. Daryl is gone.

My other thought is that Neagan (sp?) doesn't actually kill Rick but beats the shoot outta him with Lucille then turns around and kills a lesser character like Abraham or Eugene.

Well.  That was a mess. 

The second death completely blunted the impact of the first and essentially illustrated that Big Red was a throwaway character with a pointless story arc. 

I think this show has reached the point to where there's nothing it can do to satisfy.  It's either not violent enough or it's too violent.  It's either too engrossed in story or it's too superfluous. 

Most of the reviews of this episode are scathing.  I agree with them.  I also disagree with them.  There is no happily ever after.  We get it.  The weekly torture to prove this point is ... well.... torture.  It's also hard for me to believe that EVERY kingdom in the new world is ruled by kings of ever-increasing cruelty.

I missed last season but have caught up with spoilers online. This show is a money-grab. That's it. It could have been amazing. Write a 4-5 season arc to make a definitive statement about humans in an apocalypse. Have us save ourselves through ingenuity (cure, war, whatever) or have us all die off. Just do something.

Instead it's a soap opera with too much soap. Glenn died? Okay. Kill em all off. What's the point? Next season is coming anyway with new conversations that are too long and random pointless action and a few nefarious villains who are awful people.

So, I've never watched any of this but it's all over AMC adverts and people keep talking about it. I asked a friend who watches and he said the head bashing was in retaliation for those people killing some of his people in a preemptive attack or something. And my question is why are the people who are still alive and not zombies still fighting with each other? Doesn't look like a race thing. Is it over some hot women? Or electricity? Or some Twinkies?

Not about zombies. They were the original source for plot but now they are reduced to a distraction (mere props now) but it had to be some type of catastrophic pan/epidemic of some nature to drive people in clusters for preservation. And since people are basically weak in need of leadership (good or evil) you get enclaves that (trade/plunder others for survival and/or sport.
It's just a saga about human behavior and the lengths people will go to with all of the relationship crap added in. JMO.

Quote
'The Walking Dead' star Chandler Riggs accepted to Auburn University

Amber Sutton | asutton@al.com

Chandler Riggs, who portrays Carl on AMC's "The Walking Dead," may soon be calling the Plains home after being accepted to Auburn University.

The actor announced that he was accepted at Auburn on Sunday night through his Twitter account, saying "ayy i just got accepted in auburn." Riggs, 17, has played Carl Grimes, son of "The Walking Dead" protagonist Rick Grimes, since 2010.

"The Walking Dead" alum Jon Bernthal, who played Shane in the show's first two seasons, was quick to congratulate Riggs by sharing a throwback photo with the message "atta boy C nice. Congrats on college. I'm proud of you buddy."

For fans worried what Riggs' pursuit of higher education might mean for his character on the show, it's unlikely there's any cause for alarm. "The Walking Dead" is mostly filmed in Georgia so the young actor should be able to attend school and continue filming without too much of a hassle.

Good lord. 

I quit this show for a long while.  Peeked in early this season, laughed and turned it off.  My DVR still records it, but I just delete it on Monday.  Last night I had the insomnia and was really, really bored so I decided to watch whatever episode in whatever season ran last night. 

Was looking for something to maybe lure me back in or at least wonder what maybe happened to some of the characters. 

What a dreadful, plodding, stupid, pontificating, asinine mess. 

How in the HELL did this show get from Rick shooting a young girl in the face in episode one to this miasma of mediocrity?  It was loaded with terrible acting, implausible nonsense and over-dramatized bullshoot.

Until I can figure out how to get my DVR to stop recording the damnable things I'm going to go back to deleting on Monday.
