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.

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.

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.

2013-01-16 12:49:29 PM  
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.

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!"

The comic version of her had a lot more characterization. With all the Woodbury stuff being in full swing on the show, I don't see them taking much time to add any now. It's a shame that her character on the show is much more than frowning on shenanigans.

She refused to give Woodbury even the slightest chance, she instantly knew right from the start that something was wrong and left the town before she even had evidence to back up her belief, though she had suspicions based on what happened to the National Guardsmen. It wasn't until Merle and his crew came after her that she had proof that Woodbury was rotten. I just think it would have been more interesting if Michonne had been merely wary and then found something to validate her suspicion which prompted her to leave rather than being nearly precognizant.

As top-notch quality is as Breaking Bad is, I can only stand to watch a few episodes in any stretch of time. It's so very, very dark. I gave up on Dexter I think midway through season 3, when Jimmy Smits wanted to be friends. True Blood was good, but the longer Sookie goes without learning to keep her damn trap shut around a bunch of vampires perfectly willing to kill her, the worse it gets.

Considering that there's about 6 seasons worth of plot already scripted based on where the comic book is at, I don't think that that's a major factor.

Saiga410: Relatively Obscure: serial_crusher: I'm glad The New Token Black Guy is enthusiastic about contributing, but it might not be a good idea.


T-Dog wasn't in the comic book, and the others didn't last long there either.  That is, with the exception of Tyrese.  If his role in the tv show is similar, I'd expect that he'll be around a good bit longer.  That said, in the comic he is Rick's right hand man- that's a role that non-comic-book Darryl is currently filling, so its reasonable to assume there isn't a story reason to keep both.

NeoCortex42: mitchcumstein1: If Daryl dies, we riot.

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


See above.  I would say that the only truly safe characters are Rick and Carl, since it is ostensibly their story that is being told.  And there's nothing Kirkman likes more than to off someone you really like when you least expect it.  It's troll TV.

Absolutely.  Start from the beginning, and be sure to watch each episode three times before moving on to the next one.  During the third viewing, you should open up the Fark episode thread and read along.

The good news for them is they get to actually try and survive the zombie apocalypse, thus validating all our gun nuts and fulfilling their most private dreams.

unyon: whizbangthedirtfarmer: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!"

Considering that there's about 6 seasons worth of plot already scripted based on where the comic book is at, I don't think that that's a major factor.


1) there are a whole lot of people who watch the show who aren't aware it was based on a comic book
2) different mediums require different styles
3) The Walking Dead comic has outlasted its usefulness by about 30 issues now

Stile4aly: SuperChuck: Stile4aly: Michonne was mistrustful of Woodbury the whole time without real cause and that degree of intution is unbelievable.

Michonne is mistrustful of everybody, all the time. How is Woodbury any different?

She refused to give Woodbury even the slightest chance, she instantly knew right from the start that something was wrong and left the town before she even had evidence to back up her belief, though she had suspicions based on what happened to the National Guardsmen. It wasn't until Merle and his crew came after her that she had proof that Woodbury was rotten. I just think it would have been more interesting if Michonne had been merely wary and then found something to validate her suspicion which prompted her to leave rather than being nearly precognizant.


For a good read check out The Gift of Fear by Gavin De Becker. Sometimes the brain just knows that something is wrong. Many times, people ignore it until it's too late and end up dead. Michonne has learned to be hyper-aware of her surroundings and so she picked up on it fast and bugged out. The only thing I would fault her on is not properly communicating with Andrea that she had a really bad feeling about things and that the smart thing to do was run like hell.

Now, eventually you do plan to have zombies on your zombie show, right?

The show has never been about zombies

The title of the show begs to differ.

No, it doesn't.

The Walking Dead is about zombies about as much as Shawn of the Dead is about zombies.

Saiga410: Relatively Obscure: serial_crusher: I'm glad The New Token Black Guy is enthusiastic about contributing, but it might not be a good idea.

T-Dog wasn't in the comic book, and the others didn't last long there either.  That is, with the exception of Tyrese.  If his role in the tv show is similar, I'd expect that he'll be around a good bit longer.  That said, in the comic he is Rick's right hand man- that's a role that non-comic-book Darryl is currently filling, so its reasonable to assume there isn't a story reason to keep both.

NeoCortex42: mitchcumstein1: If Daryl dies, we riot.

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

See above.  I would say that the only truly safe characters are Rick and Carl, since it is ostensibly their story that is being told.   And there's nothing Kirkman likes more than to off someone you really like when you least expect it.  It's troll TV.


volume 17 of the trade would agree with you on that! good lord that was rough to read

Negan makes the Governor look like the ice cream man by comparison.  People that think that the series has run out of steam really haven't stopped to consider what happens when resources become truly scarce in the post-apocolyptic world.

The Governor was creepy as fark right from the beginning. Not to mention evasive and secretive. And of course, Andrea was attracted to him which is pretty much the international signal for "this guy ain't right."

TV Andrea is pretty and attaches herself to whomever she perceives as the alpha male. She couldn't attach herself to Rick because Lori, so she attached herself to Shane. And before that, Dale. Now, the governor. Pretty soon it'll be Carl, I guess.
