Great episode. But don't think I can stomach the next one. We'll see.

And Michonne following the zombies to the prison after masking her human smell was an excellent resolution to what could've been a glaring plothole.

Nononono....don't kill off the only Asian dude on the show (evil Glenn doesn't count). Plus hope nothing happens to Maggie.
 
2012-11-19 10:31:59 AM
That was Evil Glenn that Michonne ran through, wasn't it?
He caught some of Merle's bullets in the back as well.

I dunno about Tyresse...he was aight in the comic...not one of my favorite characters...
Didn't see half the reason he beefed with Rick so much...

And, by the way...TV Rick is way more awesome than comic book Rick.

I love the show, don't get me wrong, but the past few weeks have been 15 minutes of something and 45 minutes of Andrea and the Governor talking.

Last season it was 45 minutes of lots of different people talking.

This season? Long, drawn out conversations with the creepy uncle and the sorority girl

(Andrea's character change from last season to this is right up there with Janet going from smart to stupid on Three's Company!)

They've succeeded in making Michonne an incredibly unlikeable character. I know, I know. Comic book blah, blah. But what exactly is her redeeming quality? That she took in Andrea and nursed her back to health? That relationship seems like Lenny and the mouse.

She's not a great conversationalist. Her brooding, grunting hyper paranoid shiat doesn't make her the ideal dinner party guest. Now, we'll probably have half an episode of her deciding if she can trust Rick and gang. Ugh. The governor is far more interesting. Tapping Andrea was nice work.

Michonne's got to go. Throw her in a biter pit with a dinner fork for a weapon. Great fun.

Reedeeming quality: good with a sword
Conversationalist: why talk to anyone when everyone's gonna die
Ideal dinner guest: no dinner parties in the apocalypse

Book it. Done.

I can see her and Daryl as being the ultimate bad-ass zombie hunter group.
 
2012-11-19 11:07:38 AM
Does he explain why Carl wasn't in the house?
 
2012-11-19 11:07:48 AM
Its going to be a tricky situation. Mearle wants his brother back, Daryl is loyal to the group now. The Governor would just do the same to all of them as he did to the Guardsmen. The next few look like they will be getting even better. This season has been a good turn around.

Agreed, to a certain extent. I get the impression that Andrea is a writer favorite. I also get the impression that the writers are just using her as a foil this season for the Governor. I think they're going back to a pre-farm Andrea personality...kind of a quarry Andrea, since things are reverting back to normalcy, we're seeing that reflected in her personality. However, the flirting over four episodes is pretty gag-worthy. I just think the writers gave her the 'soft reset' so she'd be able to revert back to tough Andrea by the end of the season, should circumstances warrant.

I do wonder how much saw the actors have in the development of the characters.
 
2012-11-19 11:12:58 AM
I hope she makes Merle and the Gov'na into jawless armless zombie mules.

I think he might use Andrea to get Maggie and Glenn to talk...and not in a good way.

Someone who's read the graphic novels please explain the "red zone".

Dreyelle: Someone who's read the graphic novels please explain the "red zone".


Sorry, there wasn't anything about a 'red zone' in the comic regarding Woodbury. So I'm just as interested as you are. However, it now makes much more sense that the scouts from Woodbury haven't been in the direction of the prison if it is in this 'red zone' of which Merle spoke.

She brought a basket full of baby formula with her to the prison.

I finally got around to watching some the "expanded" content and interviews of the cast.

Its hilariously jarring hearing "Rick" talk with a British accent.

It's even more hilariously jarring to watch him douche it up as a complete mangina in Love, Actually.

If I had to guess, the fact that Rick and the gang was running around dodging huge packs of zombies for 6-9 months or whatever the time table was they gave, and mentioned before the prison was found, that they were cut off on all sides.

I'm assuming based on that, that they are in the middle of this "red zone", and that's just a reference to a danger zone that's infested with zombies.

Also as he said, comic said nothing about it.

They later find him romancing the slippers in a cell when he thinks he's alone. He tearfully reveals he was in prison as a sex offender for humping a pair of ladies Nikes in front of a Sonic Drive-In while drunk and high.

And yet, with a gun pointed at him point blank, he said he wasn't going to beg for his life. Hm.

So where is the scrawny white prisoner? He appears kinda harmless, but I suspect that he's really dangerous. The way he gut stabbed the zombie during the 2nd episode gave me that impression.

Honestly, that's what I thought too, with the addition the "red zone" is probably where the survivors pulled the mega-chain-herd that followed them from Atlanta and sacked Hershel's farm. I can only imagine that mega-herd will remain a quiet Chekhov's gun until season 4 or 5, when it comes into play during the trip to Alexandria.

My thoughts:

1) I'm disturbed by how seamlessly they replaced T-Dog with that black prisoner. He's even doing that loitering-in-background-saying-nothing thing too. It's taking that "token black guy" to a level of ridiculousness.

2) Feeling mixed about Michonne. Great in action scenes, but her constant scowling is comical. I'm beginning to question the casting here. Better hope they give her more depth and range soon.

3) Am I the only one who's glad the show got rid of Frank Darabont? I understand that he was responsible for the first season and half of season two, including the unrealistic CDC stuff and the drawn-out search for Sophia, and ever since he left the show really picked up in pace and intensity, from the second half of season two to now.

/I'll stop complaining now

I'm a bit sad that Rick has returned to normal so quickly. It seems like they could have played the phone thing out longer, had him conserving with the other people on the line for a scene or two for a few episodes...

They've played this season out really well so far. Character development isn't being ignored, and we still have action and plot to spare.

Was it just me or did that change happen when the Lori voice said the baby was theirs? I believe right after was when the reception started going out, as to say Rick was getting with it.

What? Oscar is a totally different character. This black guy is bald. He digs holes. He opens and closes gates. He stands in the back of the group. He has few lines.

Aw, Hell....he's O-Dog now.

No way. I'm glad they wrapped that story up quickly. It could've been a real jump-the-shark moment for the show otherwise. The writers were trying to give a quick homage to the comic, show the depth of Rick's insanity, and then move on.

Well, when you put it like that: He's a ditch-digger and doorman who rides the back of the bus. I guess post-apocalypse Georgia isn't exactly progressive, is it.
