Lando Lincoln: And I still can't understand why the people are mad at Rick for not telling them about the "we all have a zombie sickness" thing. And I can't understand why he didn't want to tell them in the first place. I mean, I understand where the writers were going with it, but the concept is just lame. If I were in that situation, it's not like that piece of information really changes anything. "Well, I was expecting that if I died, then I'd just be dead, but NOW you're telling me that if I die I turn into one of them automatically? THAT CHANGES EVERYTHING FOR SOME REASON."


It actually does change everything. Even if you managed to create a functional society and killed off all of the zombies walking around you still wouldn't be free of them. Every time someone dies the danger would start all over again. If they weren't infected there is a possible future where they could rid themselves of zombies. Since they are, the world will never go back to the way it was.

karmaceutical: Except for Herschel, he is pretty decent... and maybe the biker guy, who is slightly less one-dimensional than the rest of the party.


Probably because Scott Wilson and Norman Reedus, especially Scott Wilson, are more established actors. Scott Wilson much more so of course, but Reedus was damn good in The Boondock Saints.

slayer199:

Rick's character is going through a serious transformation. The reality of the world they're living in is changing him (killing the living and "No longer a democracy").


His rational was that he was going to do whatever it took to keep his wife and kid safe, yet he's fine with people walking around unarmed and living in tents. Hell, he was even going along with capturing zombies alive.

When Shane's the sane one of the group, you're in trouble.

TV's Vinnie: Can't wait till this Fall when everyone's "OMG OMG OMG GOVERNOR! MICHONNE AND THE GOVERNOR! THIRD SEASON IS GONNA BE SO AWESOME! THIS IS GONNA KICK SO MUCH ASS!" turns into "What in the F*CK is this stupid retarded sh*t?"


Hey! Watching her argue with Darrel about whether or not to put onions in the salad is worth at least four episodes. They can do it all in one shot!

ekdikeo4: Thrakkorzog: The lack of using axes and sledge hammers is probably due to the budget. firing a squib off on a zombies head from a gun shot might be cheaper and easier to do than putting a pitchfork up through it's skull. It might cost a bunch to make the skulls they smash to reveal the Smuckers jelly inside. I blame AMC for screwing the pooch and not giving the show the budget it needs.

Lori has to obsess about laundry as she probably has a bad case of the feminine itch.

Did everyone miss the episode where they went out and pitchforked, hammered, and otherwise beat the holy hell out of every walker they could find?


They did use a few hand weapons when the walkers came out of the barn

Yeah, that will be totally awesome when people who want to like a show won't like it anymore, just like how you don't like it. And then you can be all, "Ha! I hated it WAAAY before you guys hated it!" and then we'll be all, "Yeah, you are really cool after all!" and then we'll all sit around and talk about how cool you are and how we want to be more like you, and then you'll feel really good about yourself.

LiQuid!: kumanoki: Okay, let's talk about T-Dogg for a moment:

You can love him or hate him, but T-Dogg needs to be given the respect he deserves. He is the only black guy in a group of dangerous, moody white people in Georgia. Who have guns. Even before the zombie apocalypse, that's an uncomfortable place to be.

Just because the end of the world happens, doesn't mean people wont immediately drop prejudices.This was evident with the altercation on the rooftop in the second episode of the show.

I appreciated T-Dogg's feverish ramblings when he first cut his arm because he was just thinking out loud. Dale didn't need to give him the fart stare. T-Dogg feels threatened by the group just as much or more than the zombies.

T-Dogg is growing on me as one of the characters I like the most because of the look he gave Rick duing the 'Ricktatorship' speech. Like, "Aw, hell no" crossed with "I'm done".

And I was fully expecting him to be the one to walk away. "I'm takin' this shotgun. Ya'll all crazy, you know that? I'll take my chances. Peace."

I'd be willing to bet nobody on this writing staff has ever seen or spoken to a black man before.


I thought that would be evident in the fact that they've populated the entirety of middle Georgia with only white people. Atlanta only had the Vatos, and Jenner.

Where are all of the black people? i find it hard to believe that they all became zombies...

I think it would be a funny scene for Rick to be leading his ragtag group through the woods and stumble upon a heavily fortified enclave of black people. Guns, Mad Max vehicles, self-sufficent. They're all like, "Nuh-uh, honky, move on.." but they see T-Dogg and are like, "What are you doing over there, man?" T-dogg would mouth silently, "Help me!" And they'd be like, "Alright, the rest of ya'll can go. Brother can stay." And T-Dogg skips away gleefully. The End.

PunchDrunkPanda: Dear friend, let us not neglect or overlook the undeniable fact that Lori is a wretched, wretched character. She brings nothing to the cast, only takes, and there will be a grand celebration when Andrea finally kills her with a shovel.


I will join in that celebration.

The other thing that REALLY annoys me about Lori. She really has one primary function...to be a monther and keep an eye on Carl. Carl disappears and then she's begging everyone "HELP ME FIND CARL!!" "YOU MUST HELP ME FIND CARL!!"

Agree with Sock Ruh Tease:

Lando Lincoln: animal900: Nobody in the history of the Walking Dead TV show has ever missed when taking a shot.

Glenn hanging out the side of the bouncing Hyundai blasting zombies between the eyes with a shotgun at 100 yards was almost more than I could handle.

Yes, that too was just horrible, horrible writing / directing.


To be fair (and to steal a line from Grantland), they did all attend Sheriff Shane's Camp for Unlimited Target Practice and Occasional Ladygropes.

I stopped pretending they didn't all have AIMBOT once Hershel instantaneously metabolized an entire bottle of whiskey and started providing cover-fire for Glenn in the form of 20-yard headshots on geeks, as well as a 40-yard potshot on an armed, moving target.

And then the unlimited ammo code for his pump action in the finale. Hot damn, praise the Lord and pass the shells.

In the long run it matters. But in the short run it doesn't mean a goddamn thing. And these people should definitely be focusing more on the short run than the long run, because the way they're acting, they will never have to worry about the long run.

If we kill off all the zombies I know I can come up with a neat little necklass that everyone will be forced to wear. Your heart stops... your head goes pop. Neat simple and easy.

SERIOUSLY. Good God, that's so annoying. Hershell in the last episode blasting zombies was driving me crazy. I was THIS CLOSE to screaming at the TV.

Yeah the whole "We're all infected" revelation kind of changes the dynamic about the dangers of getting up close and personal with the walkers, but they never really made blood splatter or open wounds an issue in the show.

Disappointing. I really liked that bit from 28 Days Later ***SPOILER*** where the dad gets the stray drop in his eye, albeit from odd circumstances, and immediately becomes a danger to the group. Thought that was a cool element that other contagion-based flicks haven't explored.

titwrench: I haven't read this entire thread but what happened to the guy and his son from season one that Rick was talking to on the walkie talkie? Did he just quit? I thought it was a good plot device.


He was probably trying to get in contact with Rick the whole time, but every single time Rick picks up his walkie, he goes into long monologues and NEVER TAKES HIS FINGER OFF OF THE GODDAMN BUTTON FOR A RESPONSE!!! Morgan probably just thought "This white boy is crazy" and just gave up.

I saw Hershel reloading 2 times during that sequence. First one is just as Lori comes out of the house and starts shooting - His hand goes in his pants pocket for more shells. The second is as he is turning to move back if I remember correctly.

Yes, I saw that episode. It was one episode. And after that point they went right back to just using their fire arms or their knives. I know a knife is an easy to use instant weapon, I really do. They simply have time to do MORE. They could make spears out of sharpened poles. If its on a farm I am sure they have scrap metal laying around, you could put a steel cap on it and really do some harm. You could make a long handled warhammer. Why stick with knives and shovels when you could sharpen that shovel? Or a spear instead of a knife? If zombies can only hit you at the closest of ranges why is your primary melee weapon designed...for the closest of ranges? If they had melee weapons with decent reach all they would have had to do was sit on top of the winnebago, or the barn roof/loft and go golfing. The only danger would have been dropping their weapon and/or slipping.

I haven't seen any of the Talking Dead stuff, so can't speak to their interpretations, but I don't understand why everyone thinks Lori got mad at Rick for killing Shane. When I saw the scene, it seemed blazingly obvious to me that she was mad at Rick for (in her view) contributing to the destruction of her son's innocence.

That shotgun was pretty awesome, I'll give him that.

Imagine how incredibly dark the world would be in a post-apocalypse environment when light pollution doesn't exist anymore. If the moon wasn't full you wouldn't be able to see your hand in front of your face. Then imagine how scary that world would be with zombies that depend more on a sense of hearing than sight.

But in this show, giant fields are illuminated like it's dawn or dusk so they can show off to the audience the horde of zombies coming their way.

This show would be a lot scarier if they used the darkness to a much greater effect.

MagSeven: Sybarite: ***SPOILERS***

Hey, he got Dale killed, so he's all right by me. I'm sure Dale would be a perfectly nice person to know in the regular world, but in the Zombie Apocalypse he's going to get you jumped my Mr. Dead. "Yeah, let's let the guy roam free who's from the group that enjoys rape, murder, arson, and rape."

If you think about it, Carl was also responsible for all the walker's coming to the farm in the finale. It was his gunshot that got the first walker of the horde's attention.


Was it Carl's gunshot or Shane's? Shane's gun went off when Rick stabbed him.
 
2012-03-21 01:34:57 PM

Scorpinock: Maybe Lori's upset because she wanted, and expected, Rick to be the loser? Now the guy she loved is gone forever, and she's stuck with Mr Oldnews.


Funny enough... when my wife saw the scene, she commented that Shane must have had a bigger peenor. I kind of chuckled and crossed my legs uncormfortably...

Yep, I'd certainly be developing eyes in the back of my head. As a previous poster mentioned, what's up with Dale meandering through a field, at night, coming across a mutilated cow, and standing there wonder what's up? Hell, at night when there's poor visibility, I'd be in the house or on top of a well lit RV, and if I saw anything like the cow, I'd be running, shotgun cocked and ready to shoot anything that gets in my way.

I get that. I understand why she would be mad. But she has absolutely no right given the facts of the situation.

1) Rick didn't know Shane would turn that fast, especially considering it took several hours for one of their group to turn after being bitten. As a result, he had no idea Shane would rise behind him, right at that moment.
2) Carl saved his life. Its not like Rick gave him the gun and told him to pop his other father figure for shiats and giggles
3) Once more, Lori mother-of-the-year candidate let him get out of the house. It is ENTIRELY her responsibility for him being out there. Anything that occurs when he exits that window is her responsibility by default.

/agree with the "Lori, Shut the fark up" people.

What happened to the arsenal of bladed weapons the kid found in the car? Did our merry group of survivors manage to misplace them between episodes? Did the old guy with the hat hide them so no one could accidentally cut themselves?

Or, perhaps they were rented props and the budget cuts forced the the writers to pretend they no longer exist. That would save hundreds of dollars giving the production more cash to spend on laundry and laundry-lines.

Mad_Radhu: Compendium One (new window) is the best bang for your buck if you are looking to pick up the first 48 issues cheap. $35 for 1088 pages.


Bought it yesterday...read about 500 pages last night. The show and the books are really different, each has its own merits. I think the show does certain things better (Glenn's character, the Shane/Rick dynamic, the dialogue) but the books aren't constrained by budget or censorship issues (they don't spend weeks on the farm, Rick can tell Laurie to STFU, etc.) and the pacing is a lot faster.

I really don't know which I prefer, but I think it's good that they're not identical. If you read the books you actually get a different version of the story so it's not spoiling the show, or vice versa.

MagSeven: Yeah, just re-watched the opening. Walkers are all going one direction, BOOM, they all turn right and start heading towards the farm. It was Carl.


I thought that whole scene was pretty silly, that a random helicopter in downtown Atlanta contributes to a zombie migration towards the farm and is then drawn in my a single gunshot. Even if they were stumbling for half the time Rick and Co. spent on the farm, the herd would be in South Carolina. I more liked the idea of just a random horde shuffling about, not a care in the world just braaaaaaaaains.

But the writers don't care what I like :(
 
2012-03-21 01:49:23 PM
Epic end to Lori would be her giving birth to a healthy baby, but dying during the birth - changing in the final moments so as Rick holds his baby aloft, he's forced to kill his own wife.

Agreed. And the shiatty cinematography is surprising considering Ernest Dickerson directed this as well a several other episodes.

Perhaps its more budget cuts. The writers are saving a fortune in flashlight batteries.

The First Four Katy Perry Albums: The actor playing Carl is fine. You just don't like how the character is written, subby.


I disagree with this completely. I think that the writing and the acting of Carl! are terrible.

I didn't realize it until the scene on the highway and Carl! has his "Flipping out" moment. It's the first time Carl! gets more than 2 lines in a row and the first thing I thought was "Holy fark, this kid is really bad, even for a child actor."

Carl! Needs to get the Bobby Draper treatment before Season 3 starts.

Lando Lincoln: This show would be a lot scarier if they used the darkness to a much greater effect.


Now that they are off the magical farm of infinite wonders, maybe they'll finally have to scavenge for supplies in gas stations, super markets, and other close-quarter buildings where they can utilize some up-close camera shots for something other than Shane's grimy sweat-stubble.

But I haven't read the comics, so it looks like they're headed to the Gulag. Which, to be fair, is not unlike Nebraska.

PunchDrunkPanda: MagSeven: Yeah, just re-watched the opening. Walkers are all going one direction, BOOM, they all turn right and start heading towards the farm. It was Carl.

I thought that whole scene was pretty silly, that a random helicopter in downtown Atlanta contributes to a zombie migration towards the farm and is then drawn in my a single gunshot. Even if they were stumbling for half the time Rick and Co. spent on the farm, the herd would be in South Carolina. I more liked the idea of just a random horde shuffling about, not a care in the world just braaaaaaaaains.

But the writers don't care what I like :(


While it was silly, I thought it was pretty cool. I like how it showed kind of a butterfly effect scenario to screw these people over. I wonder if that's the same chopper we saw in the pilot though.....

DeathByGeekSquad: Epic end to Lori would be her giving birth to a healthy baby, but dying during the birth - changing in the final moments so as Rick holds his baby aloft, he's forced to kill his own wife.


PERFECT.

Cool! Book One just arrived. I was worried about having to read thousands of pages until I realized it takes about 10 seconds to read a page.

I thought the use of flashbacks was very clever and well-done (even the bit about breaking the news to Carl that pappy just took one for the team), and opened up infinite possibilities about exploring more about the characters before their worlds shattered and then collided with one another.

kumanoki: Where are all of the black people? i find it hard to believe that they all became zombies...


Impossible, all the zombies are white too. Seriously, go re-watch the episode and find me three black zombies.

groppet: Well after Dale got tore open I began thinking to myself "You know if he was wearing a leather jacket that mgiht not have happend." Get some leather jackets morons! Yes you would sweat more but hey better than nothing, unless you want to wear chainmail or plate armor.


You know I keep thinking that one of the side effects of being infected with the zombie virus, even if you are still breathing, is that it makes you pants on head retarded.

I mean seriously the entire US Army can't figure out against an enemy that can't be wounded, only killed, the best tactics are those of the Roman Legion? Fark those skirmish tactics of modern warfare, you want your boys packed in tight, behind a nice and tight shield block and stabbing with spears at the enemy who has no tactics.

Big Beef Burrito: kumanoki: T-Dogg is growing on me as one of the characters I like the most

Me too. I've compiled this list of things we know about our Nubian savior:

T-Dog Facts

T-Dog's name is Theodore Douglas
T-Dog doesn't like to waste ammo sniping zombies from a rooftop while high on meth.
T-Dog is compassionate enough to try and rescue a jerk from being handcuffed zombie food.
T-Dog is sensible enough to not get him self killed trying to rescue a jerk from being handcuffed zombie food.
T-Dog willl still lock the door behind him when he bails out.
T-Dog makes a believable sniper.
T-Dog enjoys a good hot shower
T-Dog gets a little paranoid around white people when he gets sick.
T-Dog appreciates you keeping that part to yourself.
T-Dog thinks your stupid plan to hoist a bloated zombie out of your well is stupid.
T-Dog knows that zombies don't like no canned hams.
T-Dog will accept a peach if you offer it to him.

T-Dog wants you to knock off that gangster shiat.
T-Dog shaves every day. Every. Day.
T-Dog's arm contains more blood than the average human being.
T-Dog does not wrangle zombies, he kills them.
T-Dog can hit the broad side of a barn.
T-Dog doesn't waste time looking for weapons in a zombie emergency, he uses his shoes.
T-Dog can spot a blindfolded kid in a truck from a short distance.

We darkies have a finely-tuned fight-or-flight instinct. I imagine the black peeps got the fark out of dodge at the first bite.

no doubt, the Greek phalanx would be better than a modern platoon against zombies.
