I've been anticipating the re start of this series and Breaking Bad more than anything on tv.  Hurry up already.

I'm glad The New Token Black Guy is enthusiastic about contributing, but it might not be a good idea.

He should be enthusiastic.  About killing any black guy he sees.  Period.

When he showed up on the show, I blurted out "Hey, we do happen to have a new opening for a black guy!"

I can't wait for that awkward silence when Andrea rejoins the group and says "Hey, T-Dog."

Can't wait to see it.

Its Cutty from the Wire (and Coach from Left 4 Dead 2), he is going to be awesome.

I love that they even threw in a small Coach line of dialogue for him

Until this kicks off, Justified is, as expected, badass.

Okay....I gotta ask.

I couldn't make it past four episodes in the first season. Now, I like the idea but for some reason the pacing and lack of resolution of anything in it just turned me off.

Should I try and plow through it or is it just one of those things that it's only going to piss me off?

I know tons of folks love it and I respect that. Just trying to figure out what I need to get into it.

Thanks.

A lot of the black guys I work with love the show. So we usually talk about it the next day. I did point out that whenever they get a new black guy they kill the old one off. The response I got "Man thats pretty farked up." So now our ongoing joke is whenever we hire a new guy if he is black Ill ask them "So what one of you is going to get it" That is followed by comments about my mom and some other things not to plesent.

It looks like all out war, I hope they find the use of some zombies in there somewhere.

Good, perhaps ninja Carl can take them all out by himself.

I loved that quote from Raylan about "if you run into assholes all day, you're the asshole."

I wonder if this season can possibly live up to S2 and S3. Quarles is one of my favorite TV psychos out there... I have faith in those writers though, ever since the last 1/3 of S1 Justified has hit all the right notes for me.

The first episode of S4 was a little, off. I think it was the camera work. They were trying to go all shaky cam/quick cut, which is the antithesis of Southern Laconic. But last night was good. Boyd the Preacher is always awesome. I wonder if they'll kill Preacher Billy by electrocuting him on a fence?

The pacing's probably the worst thing about the show. The resolution aspects get better as the characters get better at making tougher decisions. Season 2 was very slow. So far, season 3 has been great.

One thing that is irritating me about this show is how painfully they drag out certain story threads for no other reason to justify stretching it across 2-3 episodes.

Example: "Let's all go on a trip to Woodbury!". 20 minutes later: "OK, let's leave now!" 20 minutes later: "OK, we're almost there...oh no, zombies!" *kill zombies* "OK let's go, any minute now" 20 minutes later: "We're there! Now, let's..." CREDITS ROLL

I know it's TV and this sort of thing is common, but it seems particularly ham-fisted in this series.

I think the show's really overrated. I was a big fan of the comic books as well but sort of got bored with them as it just never really progressed, and the TV show seems to be mired with the same problem.

I keep giving it another chance and continue to be underwhlemed. I won't go so far as to say it's a bad show, but it's really not my cup of tea.

Did anyone catch Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone's guest appearance on Justified last night???
Pretty awesome cameo!
I can't wait for the showdown between Raylan and the, I'm guessing, recently released from prison, husband of the bar blonde he's banging.
Seems he'd kick the shiat outta Raylan...and Raylan seems to know that as well...
But Raylan is pretty damn shooty...bad ass MMA type won't hold up well against Raylan's semi-auto.
The tension building is pretty nice though...
Really good start to the new season...great writing...
And another great cameo, having cancer mama from No Country for Old Men in there as the felon family's matriarch was funny as shiat.

Considering his popularity, Daryl probably has plot immunity on the level of Rick and Carl.

I would agree with you for the first half of Season 2. The couple episodes between Shane and Otis' high school adventure and the midseason finale could have been condensed by at least 1 episode, but probably not more than that.

I think ultimately the problem is one of the nature of conflict. Season 1's obvious external conflict moved into Season 2's ideologically driven conflict. The problem is that Herschel's denial of reality and the fact that they were relatively safe on the farm meant that the difference between Rick and Herschel wasn't that great. It wasn't until Shane really challenged Rick that things became more tense and Lori's equivocating managed to defuse that tension. Season 3 has been better because the line between Rick and the Governor has been drawn more sharply, but I think that Michonne and Andrea's story was mismanaged. Michonne was mistrustful of Woodbury the whole time without real cause and that degree of intution is unbelievable.

At its best, Walking Dead is one of the best shows on TV and that's what makes it worth sitting through the B- episodes.

Yep. I watched season one and season two. Once I got past the shiatty accents, I really had a hard time liking any of the characters, and the writing is very much stretched out. You can almost hear the panic in the writing room in each episode: "They ordered 12 episodes! We only wrote 7!"
 
2013-01-16 01:16:51 PM
For all the zombie information available today the people in the show sure don't have a clue what to do about them.
