realityVSperception: T.M.S.: someonelse: calbert: the sexual relationship between Glen and Maggie. you would think that with all of the drama surrounding Lori and her pregnancy and how it has been affecting the entire group, that Glen and Maggie (or any other 2 characters) would take the high road and just abstain from vaginal intercourse until things settled down.

I would hope they are. I understand the Strangelovian urge to repopulate the planet and all, but damn. It's only been a matter of months since this all started. No woman in her right mind would actually be going out of her way to get pregnant yet.

I do think the scene with Glen and Maggie in the tower was meant to be a little comic interlude before the unimaginable horror that followed. But ... were they supposed to be watching the grounds while they were up there, or did they go up there just to be alone?

They went up there to be alone. Daryl? said somthing about how they were there the day before too.

People would be boning like crazy in that world. Being a survivor would boost sexual desire tremendously. Everybody wants to fark after they do somthing badass. And killing zombies is badass.

Plus, nothing makes people want sex more than seeing death. It's the reason funerals are one of the best places to get laid.

Not to mention, what else are they going to do? No tv, radio, movies, internet, books, video games, etc. No drinking or drugs. No nightlife. After a long day of slagging zombies they aren't going to sit around the campfire singing kumbaya. At night it's either listen to the crickets or screw.


I get all of these arguments, I really do. And it makes for good TV, theoretically. Maybe my libido is freakishly low, because I can't imagine being all that turned on in a world that must reek to the heavens with decomposition stench. Not to mention the stink of the survivors themselves. And the general lack of sanitation screams "contagious disease" to me, which is kind of a big turnoff. Also, I kind of think that the idea of people being in sexual overdrive in the aftermath of an apocalyptic event is one that's more real in the minds of nerdy TV writers than it would be in reality.

someonelse: Father_Jack: That killing the guardsmen scene from last week made no sense to me.

I imagine he felt his authority would be threatened by bringing them in. In reality, military leadership > random guy who calls himself "governor." I suppose in his mind, his authority is the most important thing to protect.


Given the zeal with which he bashed the fark out of that army guy's head I get the impression he just really hates army guys.

Wicked Chinchilla: Ok he did it to show that he's a badguy for the audience at home, but why would he not want to keep these men at his town and further strengthen his community? Adding an extra few men to the walls couldn't hurt, right? Or is it just more like he views them as a threat to his authoritah and thus offs em? And why would all his little hatchet men just agree that it was a good idea?

When he beat the one guardsmen to death, there was pure hatred on his face. It wasn't just about supplies. He has also spoken several times about the guardsmen being "heroes, who would never desert their posts".

I think he was in a settlement once, National Guardsmen bolted, lost his daughter/friends/etc. and now he straight up hates them.


Ah, here we go. And you'll notice he tells Andrea that some of the people in Woodbury are veterans, but no active-duty soldiers.

That was one of my nitpicks with "Revolution". I'm no nuclear power expert but I don't imagine reactors take kindly to having their plug pulled without so much as a working backup generator.

The reactor would be fine, it's the spent fuel rods that cause the problem, without constant cooling they melt down. When Fukashima lost power that is what caused their problems in Japan whose radiation reached California at one point.

It has always bugged me that a "power" station can't supply its own power.

You have to go with it. In DOTD they just state "power is nuclear". No reason to go all Lucifers Hammer on the plot line.

Strategeryz0r: So when does the show fulfill the comic's rape quota?

This season is certainly living up to the zombie murder and survivor hardship expectations. The rape quota has yet to be filled unfortunately.


I haven't read the books - are they legitimate rapes?

Father_Jack: someonelse: born_yesterday: And I'm pretty sure Michonne signed her own death warrant by subtly telling the governor that she knows he killed the guardsmen.

I can't believe she did that. Why did she do that? So dumb. Plus, she evidently DIDN'T tell Andrea this same vital information when they were deciding whether or not to leave. Did she think giving Andrea the stink-eye would somehow impart "I saw evidence that the Gov killed the military guys" telepathically?

That killing the guardsmen scene from last week made no sense to me.

Military folks that have hung on that long are highly motivated and will stand for taking shiat.

There was no way a super type A asshole like the Gov. was going o let those people into his town and disrupt the sweet thing he ha going while usurping his Authoritai!

FarkerSnow: a c-section? That shouldn't have killed her.


She didn't, she passed out from the pain of having one without anesthetic and with no ability to close up afterwards she was bleeding to death. And then there was the bullet from Carl's gun, That sealed the deal.

That's my thinking. Hershel's gonna realize she wasnt dead when Carl shot her. If C finds out, that's really gonna fark him up.

calbert: minor quibble:

the sexual relationship between Glen and Maggie. you would think that with all of the drama surrounding Lori and her pregnancy and how it has been affecting the entire group, that Glen and Maggie (or any other 2 characters) would take the high road and just abstain from vaginal intercourse until things settled down.

i wonder if Maggie's sexual desire will be extinguished now that she's seen what happened to Lori?

and I know that people are people and have urges, but c'mon. not until things are settled.

it also just seemed rather silly that scene with Glen and Maggie in the guard tower, that seemed like it was done more for the enjoyment of the crew and it really felt out of place at that time and in their current situation.


You have never had sex in your life have you?

FinFangFark: kumanoki: inelukii: Carol escaped as a result of T-Dog's sacrifice. She will end up coming across Lori and saving her life. There's a reason they showed Carol practicing on dead bodies. There's a reason T-Dog talked about how his death was going to be worth something. Carl didn't shoot Lori, he just fired a shot in frustration, anger, sadness, whatever.

We're not done with Lori yet. I'm ok with that, because I'm very much looking forward to the original plan for her character.

That would be a little far-fetched, but based on what we've seen so far, it's entirely plausible.

I was thinking along those lines too. If you watch the promo for the next show, everyone is trying to talk Rick from going in somewhere...My thoughts are Carl didn't shoot her, confesses to not doing it, and Rick wants to go in after her. He does, and finds that Carol saved Lori somehow, but with hemorrhaging so much blood, I guess the idea will be she goes into a coma, and that's where Woodbury's nurse and running into Andrea and Michonne come in to play.


What nurse?

There's lots of ways to get rid of them. They go after blood and noise. Start up a woodchipper, throw in a dead animal, and they should just climb in and chop themselves up. Or fire up a combine and 'harvest' them when they wander into a field. Basically, channel them into some sort of chopping blades and let them dispose of themselves. But remember, the show isn't about killing zombies, its about human behavior under extreme circumstances. The zombies are like faster than light travel on a sci-fi show, just a mechanism to enable the rest of the story line. So don't expect a whole lot in the better zombie killing department.

Q: Last year you said the Number 1 secret to The Walking Dead is keeping the zombies scary. Now that Season 3 presents the human danger, have you updated or amended that rule?

A: The number one rule is not so much keeping the zombies scary, it's keeping the show scary. [The zombies] are always a horror but as our folks learn to live with them, the new horror becomes what people will do to survive and to protect each other in this world. And what they're willing to sacrifice to achieve their ambition. So it's very much a human drama, and I think these new characters, particularly The Governor, certainly do play into that.

No. They're referring to another character all together that is present in the comics. If you aren't familiar with the comics, you won't know who they're talking about.

Rick and Glenn had to mask their delicious human flesh scent by smearing zombie blood/flesh on them in Atlanta. So smell is important.

Mikey1969: fusillade762: Mikey1969: ZeroCorpse: You could have saved a lot of typing by just saying "I have the attention span of oatmeal" or "I have severe ADHD."

This is the show. This is what a good zombie story is: Drama with a horror background. A horror-tinged soap opera, for lack of a better phrase.

If you want a lot of action and less character development, I suggest picking up recent zombie movies like "2012 Zombie Apocalypse" or "Resident Evil" or the 3D remake of "Night of the Living Dead" (which bears NO resemblance to the Romero or Savini versions, but does at least have Sid Haig being gross.)

If you don't like the show, then give up and find something else. There's certainly no shortage of zombie flicks out there now.

Cute. I see you've fallen for this line of shiat, too. I know, it's an easy snare, you get to sound more sophisticated without having to understand what writing a TV show is actually about. When the show gets so slow that encountering and killing zombies becomes just a footnote, you've got an issue. Sure, you can get up on your special little soapbox and make ADHD jokes, but it doesn't impress me. 4 weeks of arguing on a farm does nothing to make the show interesting or 'fresh', it just takes a small amount of actual material and stretches it out over as long a span as possible. Whenever they DO get a new piece of drama to deal with, they knock it out ASAP and get back to bickering. The prisoners they ran into inside are a good example, that lasted almost no time, and now we'll get 4 weeks of them wandering around the prison with no new plot development, except that they killed some zombies. Someone will probably cut themselves at some point, and they'll have 5 tense minutes while they embark on a major run to get supplies, then they'll return to clearing the prison or arguing. The whole thing with the 'Governor' may play out well at least.

Like I said, you obviously don't know how this works, but the pacing in this show is horrible. It started ...


What a mean little troll you are...

They're waaaaay out in uncharted territory now - so far that any relation to the story in the books is just passing chance. I don't really like the direction at this point - they've lost so many core characters that they're either going to have to start over completely story-wise with a host of new people or just shut down the series altogether. Rick, Daryl, Short-Run and Herschel aren't enough to carry the story and the kids/ladies that are left are too weak as characters to help out.

only rick and carl need to survive. every one else is expendable, and at some point pretty much every one else is going to die. It will be fine. Walking Dead is about Rick and Carl.
