I just watched the first season. Not too bad. Don't like most of the characters though. Especially the Brothers Douche.

Every zombie movie without fail as some irrational, violent asshole who won't listen to anyone and has to be constantly dragged off of someone else. But then maybe that's just being realistic, since it would probably go down that way in real life.

As for who dies I don't know, the characters are all so broad it's hard to say. I'm guessing the racist douche brother of the racist douche will be saved by the black guy and will see the error of his racist ways.

The chick who is pissed at the old guy for stopping her from killing herself will watch the old guy die and give a rousing speech to the group about fighting to live.

The smart Asian kid will find a cure to zombie-ism.

The best friend who farked the protagonist's crazy eyed wife will give his life to save the protagonist's kid, proving he was a good father in the protagonist's absence.

The meek, battered wife will turn into a Ripley style badass.

And Bruce Willis will come out of retirement and blow the fark out of all of the zombies from orbit, I dunno.

He's not dying or disappearing until we find out she's pregnant.

You've obviously never read the comics.

No I haven't but from what I understand the show doesn't follow the comics very closely. I was mostly deconstructing common horror movie cliches than actually predicting anything anyway.

in real life I would have left the guy handcuffed to the roof of a building, and would have shot his asshat brother the second he said we should go back to get him

In terms of plot, there's quite a bit of deviation. Thematically though, it's true to the comics. Besides, this is AMC. They aren't exactly known for sticking with tired and true formulas.

I'm still pissed that they took the Asian guy's car. He's like the one Asian who can actually drive in the whole world.

Are we just all assuming it'll be Rooker? And the novel comes out this month. Looking forward to that.

Okay, Mentat's second vert did make me laugh.

Super excited for the premiere.

I'm guessing from pic #12 the black guy dies.

This isn't a knock against this show specifically but zombie shows/movies in general: if the zombies are all cannibals ready to eat whatever flesh they can, why don't they ever eat their own kind? Y'know, as soon as one of the living are converted over, all the other zombies stop trying to eat them. What gives? Why not try eating each other?

I've been watching AMC's marathon since 2:30 this afternoon. I'm surprised they haven't been airing this prior to literally the same day as the season premier, but maybe it's to pump DVD sales. Either way, I have missed this show.

As somebody who read the books a few years before the show was a reality, I'm pretty excited for the season premier. I'm glad we're getting a full-size season this time, and that we won't have to wait A YEAR to see another new episode when the last of this batch ends at the end of November.

Ditto on watching the marathon, and I've never seen a single episode. Great show, I have to say. I must say I am looking forward to some massive weapon damage action.

Hopefully they manage to recover from the absolutely lame state the show is currently in.

I heard the producers had half a mind to do this. But an about face decision ended that.

As I said above never seen a single episode, but right now I was baffled watching a scene. When Merle's brother finds out they can go back and get him and the main character's wife goes "He'll show you" I found myself going "Holy CRAP is she trying to send him back to his death?".
 
2011-10-16 08:45:35 PM
Is this going to be a thing? Oh, for the days of Thief and the BSG threads.

I will be momentarily away though, squeezing the air out of my nine-year-old boy when the Herschel's Farm story arc starts.

She was saying that with contempt. She didn't want him to go but she knew he would.

I just really hope they don't go all battlestar galactica and try to milk 2 seasons of shows over 5 season of tv by only running 6 episodes every 2 years.

/end hyperbole

When is the premiere?
 
2011-10-16 08:54:57 PM
One thing bothered me about season 1, the rather heavy handed discussion of sexism when the women were washing clothes bemoaning how they ended up with this work. What were the men doing? Well, most were venturing back into the zombie-infested city on a rescue mission, I don't recall any of the women raising their hands to volunteer for the task. And later through the series anytime action needed to be taken the men stepped up to do what needed to be done while the women huddled together crying (ex - trying to break out of the CDC center under lockdown).

I don't know what to make of that writing. If the sexism comment was sincere then it failed to live up to it in the rest of the show, or was it sarcastically pointing out how shortsighted the women were?

/watching the menfolk break out right now, while the women all give up except for grenade lady

I'm surprised Burn Notice didn't try to top it when they heard that another show had blown up a building the size of the CDC

I'm not sure that a chopper is the preferred mode of transportation for a zombie apocalypse.

Was that a NAZI symbol on the bike? (The two lightning bolts)

Biggest problem I had with the whole CDC thing was no one asked how it happened.

would have been my first question.

Well he is related to a guy that used a saw to cut his hand instead of rusted bars.

The results of someone's bloodwork. They didn't show us that for no reason.

Easy guess- someone is pregnant.

the opposite of charity is justice: I don't recall any of the women raising their hands to volunteer for the task.

Women only want equal rights when it benefits them.

Gonna catch this week's Boardwalk Empire, then watch the repeat showing at 10:30.
