I for one am glad to see that even after the fall of civilization, Glenn and Maggie still support the right to bear arms.

The gas mask zombie getting his face ripped off was pretty gross.

Deslided

Grossest for me was still hacking off Hershel's leg. For some reason I can handle the dead being hacked up just fine, but seeing a living person being mutliated made me queasy.

Jesus tap-dancing christ that was farking incredibly bad-ass. Glenn has been holding back. I have been keeping up with the comics, which make the show seem like kiddie time. Honestly, last night I was expecting the govenor to lose an arm.

/ Not surprised they cut out his castration or getting his dick nailed to a board. But at least lose a damn arm.

Stuck in a prison for a year, end of the world traps you for another year... it's either then 17 year old or the lesbian, and 17 is legal in most places.

Fair is fair. Carl was easy to mock last season, but he's much better written this season. His "Suck it up, princess, I just put a bullet in my mom's brain" put down to Daryl was awesome.

Agreed, hilarious segue.

Vodka Zombie: My girlfriend (not Canadian) said this last night: "After all the hacking and slashing and guts flying out everywhere on this show, who knew that a little piece of glass would be the thing that makes me squirm?"


I know it's from Season 2, but the part where they pulled the fat zombie out of the watering hole on Herschel's farm and his body exploded into halves, THAT made me lose my lunch.

yeegrek: Fair is fair. Carl was easy to mock last season, but he's much better written this season.


The way he stormed through each prison room looking for the source of that scream, holding his gun over his flashlight like a commando, that was the apex of his badassery.

The writers this season have definitely been paying attention to angry Internet message boards: killing off Lori earlier than in comics, Carl, more zombies and gore, better plot pacing, avoiding Michonne's/Maggie's rape scene, etc...

I don't know if it's just the budget. I think Frank Darabount leaving the show had a lot to do with the increase in quality. He was partly responsible for the very slooow build-up in the first half of season 2, with the Zombie Sophia reveal the big payoff. His involvement ended there, and then the other writers took up the slack in his absence and really took things up a couple notches since then. Anyway, for all the naysayings about Darabount leaving would hurt TWD, I'm glad the exact opposite thing happened.

So far the worst to me was from season 2- the walker in the well that split in half when they tried to pull it out. That was the really horrifying.

Also in season 2 when they were digging through the walker's guts looking for bits of Sophia. Gross.

At least in season 2 she had somewhat of a purpose. She could shoot, was pretty badass, even if a little annoying.

Now she has no purpose other than taking care of the gov's wang. Which she seems to be enjoying all too much.

My money is on pregnant Andrea by the end of season 3. I just don't see the writers taking that much pity on all of us by offing her. Took too damn long for Lori.

Most of that went to Mad Men, with Megan singing in French, dancing around in her underwear, and royalties to the most obscure Beatles song from the 60s.

I expect there'll be a budgetary turnaround, and most of next year's Mad Men will be bottled in Henry Francis' home.

It is hard to argue that with over 8 million viewers on any given episode that The Walking Dead does not deserve every dime AMC can push its way, while Mad Men at its PEAK hit 3.5 million viewers. Mad Men SHOULD be bottled and the fools that funneled money to it instead of TWD should be left in the red zone. Then we would likely have 3 great seasons instead of 1 good, one sort of good and one incredible (half season).

Andrea is another one like Carl that is not even close to as interesting as she is in the comic. Andrea in the comic became a badass rather quick. Now she's definitely better than most, but she's less known for her fighting prowess in the show and more for her utter awful taste in men. Plus with Glenn now stepping up as a hardass and Carol surviving the prison alone for a few days, Andrea's quickly becoming the pussy of the group. Hopefully later on they'll work on her like they did Carl, and maybe Michonne will start to rub off on her. (giggity)

This. In the comic Andrea has finally taken her rightful place as Rick's lover.... while there is no farking way in hell that the "Andrea" of the show will ever get to be that person. They are two completely different people. Andrea of the comic is a bad ass. Andrea of the show is a worthless idiot whose only value is "sperm repository for lunatics".

That plot line dragged forever, but the scene where Sophia is revealed and killed is probably the one that tears at my emotions/senses the most. (As much as I loathed Lori's character, her death scene is also right up there.)

I really do think that the writers are taking a lot of liberty with Andrea's character because they like seeing Laurie Holden. A lot of Laurie Holden. And I don't think it's inappropriate, but I feel, much like her character, that her strengths are being squandered.

Look, I appreciate the monumental job it must be to write a character from episode to episode, and i appreciate also that there are people just like us, out there, on the web, who are going to nitpick every nuance of the show until it's bones are gleaming in the sun, but...I still have a problem with Andrea softening and turning into a patsy for the Governor this season.

frepnog: It is hard to argue that with over 8 million viewers on any given episode that The Walking Dead does not deserve every dime AMC can push its way, while Mad Men at its PEAK hit 3.5 million viewers. Mad Men SHOULD be bottled and the fools that funneled money to it instead of TWD should be left in the red zone. Then we would likely have 3 great seasons instead of 1 good, one sort of good and one incredible (half season).


That depends on what kind of ad sponsors each show draws, which in turn depends on what kind of market demographic each show's audience represents.

Look, I appreciate the monumental job it must be to write a character from episode to episode, and i appreciate also that there are people just like us, out there, on the web, who are going to nitpick every nuance of the show until it's bones are gleaming in the sun, but...I still have a problem with Andrea softening and turning into a patsy for the Governor this season. It's frankly unlike anything we've seen from her character in the past. Even when she went *ahem* "target practicing" with Shane, she initiated that nastiness. Lately she's almost been relegated to handmaid.

Thing is I would have been fine with it had they played up her illness more. Have the Governor pamper her while she's recovering, let the audience know that she feels safe and just wants some normalcy(or as close as she can get to it) after almost a year of running and hiding, give her night terrors and such to reinforce it. You can empathize with that and understand if she's willing to walk into the grey areas of morality just so she can have something concrete in her life again. Unfortunately we didn't get that and I think it was a huge wasted opportunity for the show.

Carl is stepping up big time looked like he was ready to cap Axel for talking to his woman and he was smart enough to lock the new people up. Andrea looked like at the end she was finally starting to put shiat together. Guess we will find out Feb 10th.

It doesn't seem all that unlikely to me, particularly if you look at what Andrea knows (as opposed to what we the viewer know). Of course, Andrea *could* know a lot more if Michonne had any communication skills whatsoever, but that's another issue. Still, I can imagine just about anybody would be enthusiastic about settling down in Woodbury after months of being on the road, nearly starving, and constantly fighting/running from walkers. Most people would be inclined not to look to critically at any situation that offered them protection and a little earthly comfort. I'm pretty sure I would. And up until yesterday's episode, Andrea hadn't really overlooked much other than Michonne's plea to leave. And in fairness, Michonne didn't really offer any logical reason why they should leave immediately. She was pretty much, "either you're with me or you're not." I don't think we know yet what Andrea's reaction is to Penny and the head aquariums. Sh*t went down too quickly for her to process that.

when you are dealing with equitable shows, sure, but when one show is pulling three times the viewers.... it turns less into "will women aged 18-34 see this" and more into "TEN MILLION PEOPLE SAW THAT AD". Walking Dead is the #1 drama series in basic cable history for adults and men 18-34, adults and men 18-49, and adults and men 25-54. That means lots of wives and girlfriends are watching too (I know my wife just LOVES it).

I'm not defending them, but AMC cut Walking Dead's budget because a) they had to cut costs, and b) they could. AMC owns the show, unlike Mad Men, which is owned by ... some studio or other. So in order to cut costs on Mad Men, they have to battle it out with Matthew Weiner, which they did, and they blinked when he threatened to bolt. It's unfair to AMC that they have to compete with HBO and the like for viewers, but they don't have anywhere near the budget. They're in a tough spot.

This, I believe, was a not-so-subtle nod to the meme.

Also, I truly think Glen mazzara, Robert Kirkman, and all of the actors listen to the fans and incorporate the zeitgiest into the show. The test audience must be made up of nitpicky, arrogant, smarmy fanboi bastards, like us.

I think she was willing to come around until the Gov turned on Merle and dragged Daryl into the arena saying they were terrorists. She knows Daryl (and can assume he's still with the old group) well enough to know that he wouldn't have been attacking the town without reason. She can also probably read in their faces that they haven't actually seen each other since before the rooftop.

I think the current situation will finally turn on her "good judge of character" abilities which have been missing for so long...

/still think the annoying character quotient would drop to nil if Carl and Andrea took each other out

Silent badass Carl has been awesome this season. Right now we just need to off Andrea, or return her to badass season 2 Andrea rather than "She totally wants the D" Andrea.

Andrea's never been anything more than being an annoying biatch.

Never seen a character do a full 180 faster than Carl. Really liking him this season.

At least in season 2 she had somewhat of a purpose. She could shoot, was pretty badass, even if a little annoying.

Now she has no purpose other than taking care of the gov's wang. Which she seems to be enjoying all too much.

My money is on pregnant Andrea by the end of season 3. I just don't see the writers taking that much pity on all of us by offing her. Took too damn long for Lori.

Andrea is another one like Carl that is not even close to as interesting as she is in the comic. Andrea in the comic became a badass rather quick. Now she's definitely better than most, but she's less known for her fighting prowess in the show and more for her utter awful taste in men. Plus with Glenn now stepping up as a hardass and Carol surviving the prison alone for a few days, Andrea's quickly becoming the pussy of the group. Hopefully later on they'll work on her like they did Carl, and maybe Michonne will start to rub off on her. (giggity)


I think everyone seems to have missed the look on Andreas face when she sees Darell being brought in. I think now shes gonna realize that it was Ricks group doing the attack and is probably be the one to save Darell.

Andrea just wants the D. She'll be like "why would they attack such a peaceful community rather than come join us?" then the governor will play the oblivious card and continue with his "durr hurr turrurists herp." she'll believe him, cuz she loves the D.

Then when the truth finally comes out at the end of the season.

She'll be the one to off the governor. But whether they accept her back in the group will be up for debate.

Andrea asked Michonne what are you doing? in an accusatory tone. This was after Andrea contemplated that picture the Governor keeps with living Penny and his wife who bears a very very close resemblance to Andrea. Andrea was shocked by the heads, but she wanted to be with the Governor more.

And what did the Governor do? Rebuff her ass.

I think the big problem is that the writers have no idea how to use Andrea this half of the season, but still need her character for later story arcs, so she's in this weird story limbo. They just think she would be useful as a way of showing how deceiving the governor is - that he is sick and twisted on the inside but puts on a nice guy facade for show, and instead of using random townspeople that we don't care about, they use Andrea instead to showcase this. Makes sense in the writers' room, but has been executed poorly on the set. Her whacking the governor or freeing Daryl somehow would be the character's saving grace.

Not to be completely creepy, but I want Andrea to get her facial scar. Laurie Holden has been too pretty this season and we've seen decapitations, loss of limbs, eyes, death. She's starting to stick out and needs something to show she's earned her place in the apocalypse. That's a central theme in the comic, physcial loss mirroring emotional and moral loss.

Sometimes her wispy golden tendrils look slightly frizzy and in need of deep conditioning. And she only has, what, 3 or 4 perfectly fitted shoulder-baring shirts. What more do you people want? The little hair knot in the back of her head to be off-center? She's not an animal!

Except the pit fights only worried her because she liked them too much herself. The head tank may have messed things up for her, but it seems like she's too quick to buy the gov's explanation. As far as she can tell, she has this idyllic existence in a place that seems completely safe to her. She may rationalize the attack as Rick not wanting to give up control of the group, so they went after Woodbury for supplies. This may make her have a difficult time believing the truth, because she appears nearly brainwashed by the gov at this point. Willing to believe anything that keeps her life as is(IE: in a safe place, shacking up with the man in charge, etc).

I understand your side of things, and it's certainly a possibility. But after everything she's been through, I think the illusion that is Woodbury is too much for her to let go of. Especially since she feels like the group abandoned her.

Possibility #3: She may think the group found out she was in Woodbury and came back for her, rather than the truth which is Maggie and Glen(since they don't know she's there). That could spin off into an interesting direction should that be the case.

I see wait you're saying, also she might not know Daryl is still with Ricks group. I think that's why the writers had her say she only saw two-Dog/Oscar during the raid. I'm really hoping she steps up, I do believe her character has come along way from the attack in the Winnebago on the highway to now. Also I think the show has done a good job on showing why all these people are following the Governor, their all trading freedom for security so to speak.

My theory on the end of the governor. The culminating final battle at the prison leaves Woodbury underprotected and the walls fall. In his urgency to take the prison the Gov dresses up as Humongus and Andrea in a slave girl outfit (chain and all). The Gov rams the military transport into the prison fences and they are damaged beyond any repair and in her anger at losing the prison Andrea chokes the Gov with her chain. All the while Daryl saves Rick from falling off the prison roof and into a teaming courtyard full of Zs.

trickymoo: syberpud: trickymoo: Mentat: I for one am glad to see that even after the fall of civilization, Glenn and Maggie still support the right to bear arms.

Jesus tap-dancing christ that was farking incredibly bad-ass. Glenn has been holding back. I have been keeping up with the comics, which make the show seem like kiddie time. Honestly, last night I was expecting the govenor to lose an arm.

Putting an eye patch on is easier than a fake missing arm. :)

Hershel's leg?

FunkOut: groppet: FunkOut: Something tells me Andrea was a very irritating person before the whole apocalypse.

Well she was a civil rights lawyer. So Im sure she annoyed the shiat out of judges, lawyers and other assorted malcontents

Lawyer? Explains why she just seemed to like arguing for arguings sake.


I'd pay good money to see a pre-zombie reboot of "Ally McBeal" with Michonne in the lead role.

/probably would scare off the Omnicrons in addition

Why did it all turn out like this for me? I had so much promise. I was personable, I was bright. Oh, maybe not academically speaking, but ... I was perceptive. I always know when someone's uncomfortable at a party. It became very clear to me sitting out there today, that every decision I've ever made, in my entire life, has been wrong. My life is the opposite of everything I want it to be. Every instinct I have, in every of life, be it something to wear, something to eat ... It's all been wrong.
 
2012-12-03 07:01:05 PM  
I mostly agree with the criticisms of Andrea's character so far, but they've toned down the Governor's character so much that most people in her position would probably think "Okay, this place/guy is weird, but I'm not being devoured by the undead, so I think I can deal." Of course, I think all that's about to change with what she found out at the end of this episode, but the Governor's evil is a lot less obvious in the show than it is in the comics.

If we're voting for most annoyingly dragged-out, pointless moment, I'm going with Maggie's story about her sister and the birth control pills.

If she'd been disrobing while telling it, I would have a different opinion.

I haven't read the comics but I believe the shows Governor is very believable and well done the slow exposing of just how creepy and messed up he is really works, and truthfully I think Andrea's character has just been sorta used to shine light on what's happening in Woodbury although her character motivations of wanting safety and normalcy for me at least is easy to understand. She lost her group traveled with Mishone who never talked and they were constantly in danger.

Also I think Mishone who might not talk much is really gonna step up. I mean until Andrea she was alone with her pets since it all started as far as we know. So losing social skills seems obvious.
 
2012-12-03 07:57:18 PM  
To be fair, I don't see why Andrea would get too freaked out by the head aquarium given that she's aware of the experimentations going on in town with the biters. In fact, finding out about Penny probably answers the whole "why bother with the experiments in the first place" issues she has.

Agreed. The gripe I had about the Governor in the comic book was he was too cartoonish, a very over the top villain. I was worried that seeing seeing the same version on the show would snap me out of the realism (don't laugh) of the show. At least the show's version is plausible - and what a great actor.

And what extra stuff about his zombie daughter? I thought they covered everything from the comics? Sure, she was beheaded in the comic version, but I think this sword-through-mouth version was just as brutal. Am I forgetting something, besides the castration and amputation of the Governor?

Good point I think she's also thinking about how she reacted when her sister was bitten. She didn't want to put down her sister granted she's come along way but I can see how she could rationalize that.

Hey, I'm not where I can review this scene at the moment. I remember that Penny was killed when Michonne rammed a sword through her head, which then went through her mouth. As I recall, it seemed pretty straight through.

Just wondering how much brain can have been damaged that way in order to kill her, and how much damage to which parts of a brain is supposedly necessary. I guess maybe some brain stem could've been nicked, but I dunno.

I know that sounds a little silly, and I'm not all that worried about it either way. Clearly dead and it was clearly cool. Just wondering.

Yeah, I realize that. I'm pretty easy to please, and enjoy the show. This won't cause me to fret; it's just a thought that popped into my head while at work.

"Hey, how much brain do you have to get? Which parts? Hey, could she even have struck ANY brain?" I know there's probably not a real or consistent answer for the general questions. Maybe for the last bit.

Either way, I enjoyed the shiat out of that last episode.

Exactly, as far as the silly guns and sword stuff but I have to say, I think it was last season the talking dead were they talked about how the actors handle weapons on set, I was happy with that.the had a very good system for that and were very responsible on set with the weapons.

fusillade762: About that piece of glass Michonne jammed into the Gov's eye: seems like you could get all sorts of nasty infections from Zombie Head Aquarium Juice.


Yeah, but if we were going that route, we'd have to deal with the fact that pretty much every character on the show routinely gets a face-full of zombie bodily fluids. Never mind the minor cuts and abrasions one tends to suffer in the fighting off of zombies whilst running headlong through underbrush.

Maybe this has been addressed more cogently in the comics, but for all that it apparently spread like wildfire through the entire world's population the first time, the Zombie Infection now seems to be the most difficult bug to catch in all of human history. (For that matter, given that the humans we see are constantly stressed and starved and physically abused to within an inch of their lives, it's pretty remarkable that the entire cast didn't die of some normal kind of illness. So far, except for Andrea's offscreen inter-season illness, nobody has had so much as the sniffles.)

Still, I'm not bothered by it. I think this is the rare science-fiction-type show that doesn't benefit from constantly reminding yourself of how little farking sense the whole thing makes if you think about it for a few minutes.

A sword always seemed like overkill to me. You'd get tired pretty fast swinging one around for any length of time and I sure as hell wouldn't want to be standing next to you while you use it.

Claw hammer, crowbar, ice axe, etc all seem like better options to me.

It's gotta be some kind of running joke for the creators at this point.

and to think, when blacks and white women brought it up we get the reactions found here

http://www.salon.com/2012/11/11/the_walking_dead_has_become_a_white_p a triarchy/

as in "you don't know what you're talking about" and "you're just seeing things" and "you're an idiot for even bringing this up"

but when white men begin to acknowledge it we start seeing shiat like

http://www.slate.com/articles/arts/tv_club/features/2012/the_walking_ d ead_season_3_recaps/week_8/the_walking_dead_review_season_3_episode_8_ made_to_suffer_recap.html

as in "wow, maybe there's something to it after all. has anyone else noticed it? that's kind of funny and kind of uncomfortable. oh well, more zombie kills!"



Woah. Different articles written at different times on different sites to different audiences had different comments made about them? The hell you say.

Weapons for the zombie apocalypse:

(from longest to closest range)

1. Anything on the AK platform which shoots 7.62x39. - An sks would do fine as well. Something to clear a field with at rather significant ranges of between 200-300 yards. (longer than that you probably wont need it)
2. A .22 something. Could be used the way darryl uses his crossbow, just more capacity. Quiet. If the zombies are slow moving you could get headshots with a 22 easy and the quiet nature of it would not attract a horde.
3. 1911 handgun for the knock down effect
4. A very long very thin blade for stabbing thru faces. Michonne does well with her katana but a rapier type would probably be better.
5. Bowie knife

Think that'd keep you covered.

fusillade762: About that piece of glass Michonne jammed into the Gov's eye: seems like you could get all sorts of nasty infections from Zombie Head Aquarium Juice.


You could probably get all kinds of nasty infections from zombie blood splashing into your eyes, or through an open wound, or in your mouth, or when you smear guts all over your body, but apparently not.

So, if it isn't bites that turn people, and everyone already has the zombie virus, why did they cut off Hershel's leg instead of giving him antibiotics? He wasn't any LESS likely to get an infection with his leg sawed off with an unsterile blade. If bites are only dangerous because of the bacterial load giving you "something", then risking gangrene wouldn't help (and would require antibiotics anyways). It's not like the zombie pathogen was like venom, traveling up his leg, or is it? Because he's already infected anyways.

Formaldehyde? It's a toxic preservative, if ingested. but I'd imagine it's fixative properties kept the zombie gunk in one place.

I got the impression that the risk of infection/gangrene from amputation was less than the risk (read: certainty) of death from the zombie bite, presumably because no medium (air, filthy pants, wiped-off hatchet, etc...) could be worse than zombie mouth. And maybe zombies have some kind of super-bacteria that (what remains of) modern antibiotics can't fight. Of course, that doesn't touch on why getting zombie guts in open wounds (cuts, scrapes) isn't a bad as getting scratched.... maybe zombie guts are sterile?

I think I am set then. I got a .22 rifle with scope and a .22 pistol. A few katanas and knives. Even a small knife. Only thing lacking is a high power rifle / pistol. But when just thinking of zombies, like you said, .22 is fine. Its the people that I might want to hide from.

Do you actually own any guns?

1. If you want to make headshots at range, you don't choose an AK or the 7.62x39. An AR-15 would be better. Look and see how many match grade guns are made on the .223 platform vs 7.62x39.
2. OK, I agree with this.
3. Knock down effect is pretty much a myth. If it could knock down the person you shoot, it would knock you down when you shoot it, this is physics. That said choose whatever handgun you like. But I think you would find 9mm have higher capacity for the Zombie hordes.
4. I think an ice pick or claw hammer might be better, the hammer would be more versatile than a rapier anyway.
5. A bowie knife? I own a Bowie Knife, it would be the last knife I would carry in the Zombie Apocolypse. It weighs a couple pounds on it's own. I'd carry a leatherman multitool, and a medium size fixed blade knife.

Way too much thinking going into this. But I'll bite.

Agreed that antibiotics shouldn't fight off the zombie super-bacteria. If the mouth is more contagious than the gut etc, it's probably because at the CDC it's been shown that the epicenter of zombification occurs in the brain in the temporal lobe region, so by proximity to that, the mouth would be more lethal than anything below the neck.

fusillade762: A sword always seemed like overkill to me. You'd get tired pretty fast swinging one around for any length of time and I sure as hell wouldn't want to be standing next to you while you use it.


Wait, did you seriously suggest that your arms would get tired swinging a sword around and that you should carry a crowbar around instead?

Have you ever actually tried to swing a crowbar? A one- handed swords typically weighs less than 4 pounds and is designed to swung around. A crowbar typically weighs 15-20 pounds and is unwieldy as hell. Someone with a modicum of skill could get in 3 shots with a sword before you were even finished recovering from your first strike with the crowbar

fusillade762: Claw hammer, crowbar, ice axe, etc all seem like better options to me.


Ice Axes are designed to go in and stay in. A weapon that is hard to remove from your opponents skull is not optimal. Hammer seems OK, but I'd prefer a hatchet or small axe

But I would take a well made sword over pretty much any modern non-powered, non firearm tool, at least for roomy areas - it's a device that was designed to destroy human bodies, and centuries of refinement led to some pretty successful designs. A nice axe is a good choice, too. Just do a quick search on YouTube - there are plenty of videos of people using swords and other hand weapons to cut up animal carcasses.

Lacking a sword, or for indoor work, I dunno - a nice heavy machete, or a kukri style machete, a tomahawk or good claw hammer like you mentioned all seem like good options

Stanley 36 in. wrecking bar, the prototypical "crowbar" and it weighs 5.3 lbs.

Hell, even a 42 in. DeWalt is only 7.2 lbs

Yes, a sword is better as a combat weapon, but try popping a padlock off of a shed with it. Or opening a locked front door. Or any of the 27,000 other things you'll need to do to survive that don't involve killing zombies. By contrast the wrecking bar has the heft and reach to be effective as a close combat weapon, while being more utilitarian, not requiring sharpening, and far less likely to break if used improperly. You trade a small amount of reach (but still greater reach than say, a hammer or hatchet) for equivalent weight, greater utility, and less maintenance.

It's a hatchet for splitting wood, with nail pullers of various sizes included so you can remove those pesky nails before you chop up the wood. For example, if you were cutting up old fence posting or pallets for firewood.

heh, fair enough. I guess my estimations were colored by the fact that I haven't used on since I was a kid - I should have googled it. So, fair enough, call it 4-8 pounds. Still 2-3 times heavier heavier and unwieldy than a sword

abrannan: Yes, a sword is better as a combat weapon


I'm glad you agree.

but try popping a padlock off of a shed with it. Or opening a locked front door

Why would I do that? That's what a prybar is for. Or a sledgehammer. Sure, if that's all you've got, they also make pretty good weapons, but just because a tool can be used as a weapon doesn't mean it should be used as a weapon, especially if an actual weapon is available to be used as a weapon. Versatility is good, and over-specialization leads to being overburdened, but during the zombie apocalypse there are certain specialized tasks that will come up so often that having specialized tools to deal with them is pretty important.

abrannan: By contrast the wrecking bar has the heft and reach to be effective as a close combat weapon, while being more utilitarian, not requiring sharpening, and far less likely to break if used improperly. You trade a small amount of reach (but still greater reach than say, a hammer or hatchet) for equivalent weight, greater utility, and less maintenance.


You sacrifice a little bit of reach, a lot of speed, and an enormous amount of recovery time. A three pound difference may not seem like much, but angular momentum is a biatch. There's good reason that several thousand years of recorded history has soldiers using swords instead of metal clubs, and armor is only a part of that reason.

As for "less likely to break" - that's true, but as you say, "when used improperly." I'll take my chances with 5160 spring steel and appropriate usage.

Like the M4 above, this rifle was not among their weapons in the previous season, thus was most likely found in between Seasons 2 and 3, as the group was on the move for several months scavenging. In "When the Dead Come Knocking" (S3E07), Oscar loads the AKMS along with several other weapons into a car trunk and later Daryl can be seen carrying it. Daryl is seen using the AKMS in "Made to Suffer" (S3E08).

French Berthier 1915 and M26 carbine
Aussie Enfield SMLE
Swiss K31 (one walnut, one beech) and G11
German K98
Egyptian FN49
Mossberg .22 rifle from the 40s

....

Maybe a few others I cant remember my gun collection hasn't been touched in a few years since I left the US.

responding to your points:

Wasn't thinking about headshots and accuracy, was thinking more about durability. Hence ak or sks pref over AR. I know the reliability issues of the AR have been taken care of over the years but the AKs still got the rep as a more stable easy to maintain platform. Not owning an AR I cant say, was just thinking more about what I knew tbh.

Ice pick or clawhammer would be too splatty. If a rapier type sword was too long, a short sword would still be better than a pick imo. See Argentine "Model 1909 " short sword or Swiss 1914 Pioneer bayonet

Point taken with the bowie knife... I think I may have misspoken anyways. I was picturing a kbar or something along those lines.

Was having this convo with a friend yesterday and he opted for the p90, which'd be good too, but scavangeing for spare ammo would be a challenge.

Problem is, you do not know if they are using that sword for something else. Personally, I would always carry a few blade on me. One would be for defense against zombies if I run out of ammo and need an emergency weapon. The other would be for something like hunting. Can not have a zombie blood stain getting any where near my food.

But my main weapons of choice would be my rifle and pistol. Sword would also be used if I need to stealth kill a zombie or in to close an area where a rifle is no good and a pistol might not be used safely (splatter damage).

But my main weapons of choice would be my rifle and pistol. Sword would also be used if I need to stealth kill a zombie or in to close an area where a rifle is no good and a pistol might not be used safely (splatter damage).
