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

I maintain that Merle is still working for the Gov. He's gonna let Merle and Daryl escape so Merle can be his mole in the prison. I'd put money on it.

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.

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.


I think the title has a double meaning.

No, it doesn't.

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

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

palelizard: Skarekrough: 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.

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.


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.

Relatively Obscure: serial_crusher: 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.


That does not bode well for Morgan.
