The Walking Dead

Recommended Posts

Honestly, Season 1 is the Walking Dead that people should come to see, not character depth. It just has a lot of wow factor. While I enjoy Season 2 and it's character depth (in contrary to the cliché dialogue), that's probably the primary reason why not many people like the show. And because it's differences from the original comic counterpart.

 

I think they could mix the character development with more action. There was a stretch in season 2 where they only killed like 5 zombies in a 4 episode stretch.. That's weak.

I agree. I think the original writer or whoever he was, was fired for some reason, or he quit.

 

Swear to god why can't professional writers get their own sh*t together, and us indie folks do it better. That's f*cking sad.

Season 2 isn't over. That was just the first half of it. To properly judge you need to see the second half which premieres in a week. If we're judging seasons like a movie or one story, then that first half wasn't so bad. It had a few bits of action, a bunch of character development, and at the end a game changer. It perfectly sets up a good second half.

I know it isn't over. I was just saying what we have so far doesn't meet up to most people's standards in terms of what they've seen last season. But still, I agree. The season's not over yet, so no one can really say anything concrete.

 

I'm hoping they do pull of that usual "do pretty good the first half", only to come out outstanding as a nice surprise for the second half. I have a bit of faith, but I'm not going to hold my breath, although I'll probably like the end result with benefit of the doubt anyway.

So like, I hope Shane dies or something in the second half of this season. Cuz it's been dull as horse sh*t. A rumor says Shane does die. Who knows.

 

Not expecting any bombshells in tonight's return.

I watched the 'webisodes' they had, it filled my The Walking Dead crave I've been having.

 

Are the webisodes any good? What are they about?

 

 

The first couple, for example, are of the infamous 'Bicycle Girl' before she was the 'Bicycle Girl'. Shows her waking up with her car smacked into a telephone pole and noticing her kids are not in the back-seat. And from there it shows her short adventure and a few other people's story, mainly when the outbreak just broke out.

 

So they are not bad, it defiantly filled my craving for the show. Stoked the new episode it in 2 and half hours.

Oh snap.

 

Rick going all O.K. Corral on those drifters. Definitely looking forward to seeing him going into badass mode again.

I really wanted Glenn to nut up and kill the fat one. Even thought Herschel was gonna handle some.

Pretty uneventful except the end. I have a good feeling that the next episode is going to be great. Kind of hope Lorrie gets eaten. I hate her.

 

And I'm not sure if Shane's going to die, but he did in the comics.

I'm starting to get the feeling that The Walking Dead writers are getting to predictable. I'm banking on the 'Let's search for or Let Lori recover' plot for the rest of this season. I really hope it doesn't turn that way but I am starting to get antsy for the group to start wandering away from the Farm and to get just a little bit of more action

The Executive Producer that was on the Talking Dead said that there was going to be more zombie killing to appease some of you guys.

Holy sh*t. I didn't know they could make the writing even worse than it was before. It's abysmal. This is a new milestone for them. So congrats, I guess.

I don't think the show has the budget for a 'zombie apocalypse' to be set in more than one location at a time. Perhaps next season at the prison will be more eventful?

And I wouldn't mind the slow pace if the characters weren't all mopey, whiny unsympathetic losers. Oh, poor predictable Dale. How I bet you'll blame yourself for Lori, and make it your mission to "look for" her.

This show breaks my heart. I look at how brilliantly Game of Thrones was delivered to the small screen and this is just a waste of source material.

 

Lori deciding to drive out and find Glenn, Rick and Herschel was some of the most retarded sh*t I have ever seen. Why on earth would she do that. They had been gone a few hours max and she just ditches Carl. Why would she even bother swerving to dodge the walker. Idiot.

While I didn't find it to be that bad, it was certainly all sorts of meh. At least until Rick finally grew some balls.

 

All this melodrama is getting boring awful fast, though. Take a cue from Lost and start punching people or something.

 

I love every exploitative moment of this show. It's a god-damned zombie story - gimme some more. None of this '"I'm sad I didn't say I love you back" while I hold a shotgun to my own head' sh*t.

My feelings can be perfectly summed up with a t-shirt.

I really want them to leave the farm. Now that Fort Benny is a no go for them (assuming that the survivors believe Renee from True Blood), I hope they don't just continue to mope around the farm. I just want them to go...anywhere.

You know, it feels like every episode now is just a set up for the next episode. At least that's how it's been for the last three or so. That was something that I started to hate about 24 in the later seasons. But I don't think it's that bad. The story at least for one episode had to dwell on Hershel coming to terms with what Shane did. But look at what happened at the end, a new set of antagonists are presented. Fort Benning is possibly a no go, how is that news going to go over with Shane. And of course Hershel came around, and obviously with Rick's actions realized that he might be what they need at the farm.

 

I'm still very optimistic.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the hell out of this show every episode. It's just some decisions these characters make are stupid and predictable, it's one of the other every, or every other episode. It's interesting watching Shane unfold, he is the most intriguing part of the show for me, I'm waiting for him to kill someone, leave or slaughter Rick.

 

 

I wouldn't trust the two guys in the bar (forgot the names), but what to do in a situation like that? I'm starting to believe we will start seeing more 'bandits' in this show here soon.

I wonder what would be the term for scavengers offing other people to get their sruff, bandits just doesn't cut it...

 

But I have the feeling this second half's theme will be how greedy people will do whatever it takes to live, including killing others for their own cause. This will then be tied with Otis' death.

 

Heard it here first :v

I really enjoyed this weeks episode. This one really shows Ricks weakness, which Shane has exploited; risking lives for really no reason.

 

Not unless it proves to be in Rick and the gangs favor for saving the kid. I also enjoyed the ending, Rick just looks like a motherf*cker who will get sh*t done when its time. I think this Shane/Rick situation is coming down to the climax.

Could someone give me a run-down of this week's episode, in spoiler tags of course? I missed it.

Lory and Dale need to get shot. Not just in the face but everywhere, with thousand shotguns.

 

The list of annoying characters is getting longer with every passing week.

And please, please let Andrea get eaten, shot, and burnt to a crisp. Most awful, annoying, aggravating character ever.

I know. It's like they stripped everything good about the character (in the comic) away from her. And y'all know how much I love Laurie Holden.

 

I quite liked the episode. Even the melodrama was bearable - although I can't f*cking stand the idea of a character "shutting down" like blondie. Does that happen? Do people ever suddenly wind up in a self imposed mental coma? People who aren't famous Tibetan monks? It's so silly.

 

But come on. Zombie shredding its own face off to get into the car? Absolutely amazing and terrifying.

Thank god this episode was much better than Nebraska.

 

Like DOOM sad, this one showed Ricks weakness, but showed that he'll finally do something do end this Rick/Shane 'fight'.

And when Lori was in the car I was thinking: 'oh, dear zombie, kill this bitch, please!'. But no way she will die in the entire show.

They'll kill someone from the group soon. I hope it doesn't happen with Shane, cause he's maintaining the drama alive. Dane or Andrea should die, or someone from Hershel's family in a very tragic way, so it can add a little more anger to some characters.

 

But the show is going to a good way, despite the fact that it seems that they aren't leaving the farm so soon.

Is anyone else embarrased that the Talking Dead actually exists? Talk about hubris.

 

I mean, sure, it'd be cool if it were an independant thing or even a podcast. But its an hour of god damned television in a popular time bracket. Do enough people actually watch that sh*t to make it worthwhile?
