museamused: Christ on a pogo-stick, I'd forgotten most of these. This show is grosser than I thought.

/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.

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. :)

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.

scottydoesntknow: The Banana Thug:
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...

Makes you wonder if AMC upped their budget for this season, or if they just had a huge surplus of funds since they spent around all of $500 on Season 2.


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.

I applaud Carl's decision to keep Tyreese and his party locked up for now. Good thinking, kid.

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".

R.A.Danny: The Banana Thug: 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.

It was a great story... that should have been wrapped up in two episodes.



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. 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.

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.

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...

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.

QT_3.14159: frepnog: it seemed to be that she thought it was above level crazy but wanted to understand, cuz no one wants to lose that fine fine deep dickin'. I think she'll come around.

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...


Hadn't seen you're post yet my thoughts exactly and also Andrea wants to believe in the town and the Governor because like she told Mishone it's better than wondering around out there with walkers.

someonelse: kumanoki: 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.

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.


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.

Andrea gave off vibes like okay this is weird but I'm willing to put up with it for you.

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.

Strategeryz0r: tinfoil-hat maggie: quiotu: Strategeryz0r: bulok: Strategeryz0r: museamused: Christ on a pogo-stick, I'd forgotten most of these. This show is grosser than I thought.

/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.

Sorry, I disagree shes lured by the seeming normal life but has been getting more worried about things like the pit fights and shes not happy about not being able to help out. I'm sure she would have rationalized all that even the walker heads for the perceived safety of the town but seeing Daryl, I think she now knows her group is out there and they wouldn't have done the attack for now reason.

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.

That's it in a nutshell, I think. They're being deliberately vague, which I kind of hate. Post-LOST Rage Syndrome.

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!
