the lord god: Zombie Hitler: AverageAmericanGuy: I see. And race is important to you because...?

Because people other than white males enjoy television, and it doesn't exactly hurt to see someone that you can relate to on the screen from time to time. Bonus points if he actually has a name.

They have BET. Not my problem. Nor should it be yours.


I've been black for years now.

ExperianScaresCthulhu: In the comic, it really is more like 'people are people'. Tyreese is described as Rick's right hand, but not his lackey. In the comic, there is no 'Disagree with the Ricktatorship, Die' clause. So the question for fans becomes.... what will Tyreese's role be in the dynamic of the show, if Tyreese were introduced at this point?


Bingo. I havent been watching the show but read the spoilers and talk with friends. The way they went with Rick is interesting. I hope Michone and Tyreese balance the group.

I prefer O-Dog, myslef.

I would also like it if The Walking Dead didn't follow Highlander Rules concerning black males.

ongbok: I'll be more impressed when they get Bunk and McNulty

[dossierjournal.com image 580x374]

Bunk, "Zombies, ahh fark"

McNulty, "fark"

Bunk "fark, fark fark."

Or have Bunk tell Rick "There you go. Givin' a fark when it ain't your turn to give a fark"

Now that would be epic.


Could be the best scene in the whole show right there.

Oh and:

Yes. Separate but equal is the way to go. Every minority group gets one channel and whites split the rest. Why hasn't anyone ever thought of that before? Surely this would be the ideal solution. Segregation ALWAYS works.

Lee doesn't count. The game takes place is the comic universe, which has no problem have worthwhile black characters. The show has been terrible about given them any sort of character. Michonne does nothing more than frown on shenanigans and cut things with a sword. Hopefully she gets some personality once she enters the prison.

/Episode five out today!

ExperianScaresCthulhu: And, of course, there's the fan speculation about what would happen if MORGAN came back.


This speculation comes from a misreleased casting list that gave the name of the actor that played Morgan as being in this season. It has been a while but did this actor sound very similar to the voice on the 2nd phone call that Rick received?

They wouldn't need a whole episode devoted to it, but I would like to see the Michonne character fleshed out. A few minutes of her back in the real world. I think up to this point, the writers are banking that most viewers will know her from the comics, but I don't think that should free them from making her a real human character in the show.

Michonne does nothing more than frown on shenanigans

I expect this to be a gif-enhanced meme shortly.

"They Live" was a really confusing movie because I thought the two bald black dudes were the same guy for most of the movie.

Also, TWD need more albino hermaphrodite amputees.

Even Sophie had more lines and character development than the T-Dog character. Guy was basically demoted to a glorified extra. Because CAROL is so much more interesting.

The only interesting thing about Carol is how her hair stays so short the entire time.

Tyreese joins the cast, Oscar lives longer than expected, black Doc Stevens joins the group, they meet Morgan eventually, then Gabriel, Heath joins the group and suddenly everyone's racial concerns are resolved.

I just played the first couple chapters of episode 5 and it's looking good so far. Definitely a brutal start to it, at least.

Unfortunately, I had to spend the first half-hour or so looking through the Steam forum just to figure out a fix to get the damn game to work with the new episode. I guess it has some occasional save file issues when new episodes hit.

I have to work until 3pm today. I plan to play Ep. 5 as soon as I get home.

But yeah, I thought I'd lost everything up to the beginning of episode 4 but found it again when I logged back into XBLA and pulled my saved file.

Don't worry. I would be pretty pissed if I got spoiled before I finish it, as well. I'm just saying that it I'm looking forward to the rest of the episode, since it seems to start off pretty strong. It would be nice to get a spoiler-laden discussion thread later in the week, though. Or at least get a discussion going during the weekly Walking Dead thread.

I just finished it. Two thoughts:

1) Is everyone useless except for Lee and Clem? "Lee, do this incredibly dangerous thing while we stand around and watch."
2) There are no happy endings in the Walking Dead universe. Ever.

I don't understand all the rage...it's a group from Kentucky that traveled to Atlanta and has since left Atlanta. They've only even encountered a dozen or so people because most of the population has been wiped out. The shows not about people surviving, not race. Why does there have to be one of every kind and color?

It's only a race thing if you make it that way, stop looking for reasons to be offended and just enjoy this awesome show.

ExperianScaresCthulhu: Solid Muldoon: Seven percent of Americans are Black Men. Why do we expect fifty percent of TV characters to be Black men?

The show is based around Atlanta, Georgia. Don't go to Atlanta if you're expecting not to see a lot of black folk.


Except that "around Atlanta" != "in Atlanta". And the group originated outside of Atlanta. So there's that.

I guess that means they'll kill off the TOKEN BLACK GUY to make room for this new character, seeing that you can only have one TOKEN BLACK GUY per series at a time.

I'm sure you spend equal time whining about token white guys on black shows and black actors getting "white" parts

2) There are no happy endings in the Walking Dead universe. Ever.



I just finished it as well, and I agree on both parts. I'm not sure if it was a shorter episode than the previous ones, or it just seemed like it since it didn't seem to let up once it started.

The only problem I had was a hiccup in "tough choices" list at the end. I guess as part of the save file issue, all I got was a list of 5 "Choice title" and "Choice description" entries with percentages. So I have no idea what choices were the big ones.

Overall, I think it was an amazing game. The voice acting, especially for Lee and Clementine, were excellent. I look forward to seeing where Season 2 ends up going with the story.

As much as I'd like to discuss some of the game on here, I don't want to risk posting an potential spoilers this soon after it comes out.

Wrong. They reappear in the comic for sure, and rumour has it at least one of their names appear in the call sheets for this season.
