Sorry, still not zombie kill of the week.

I don't get it. They seem completely randomly selected.

First season, first episode.  The bike zombie.  The one that Rick left behind then later came back and found it had crawled all the way across the park without legs.  His emotional apology before he blew its head off.  It was a great reminder that these zombies were people once.  It's still my favorite kill.

The very first zombie killed in the series.

You can't top it.

Ever.

Seems like that first video is trying a little too hard to be this (nsfw language zombie gore)

Sophia, that shiat was hardcore.
 
2013-02-26 02:37:43 PM
No Sophia? It was the first time they really killed a zombified "one of their own", besides Shane (who wasn't killed in front of the group). It also gave them a reason to get off that farking farm.

Ladies and gentlemen of Fark, I present:  How the Walking Dead is Dragonball Z:


This got started in another thread, and I've since thought of some additions to it. The similarities to Dragon Ball Z are uncanny.
Rick - Goku (Obvious, the leader and most badass. Came back from the dead (coma), fulfilling the wishes of his friends and family. Is sometimes contacted telepathically by people he knows in the afterlife. Goku was dropped on his head as a baby. You're gonna tell me he isn't insane?)

Carl - Gohan (The child underdog that comes out on top at a time of need. He has perhaps the greatest potential of any of the characters.)

Lorie - Chi-Chi (Both need to shut up. Is frequently neglected while her son and husband are off saving the world.)

Glen - Krillin (Loyal to the leader, and his first ally. In rough situations, he grows a pair of nuts the size of a sayan ape)

Daryl - Piccolo (Enemies with the leader in the beginning. Afterwards a he is a most trusted ally and stoic right hand man)

T-Dog - Yamcha

Merle - Vegeta (A primary villain for a very long time who becomes "the devil you know" and a powerful ally, also worked with the governor who is Frieza)

The Governor - Frieza (Power hungry megalomaniac with an army of henchman who is maimed and loses an eye after the first fight with Goku and his group)

Shane - Raditz (The first Sayan Goku (Rick) encounters, who is very much like him. Goku hopes they can be friends at first, but realizes they will have to fight to the death. But in the end, it is Carl (Gohan) who finishes him. Also he killed an innocent farmer (Otis).)

Michonne - Android 18 (Silent but deadly femme fatale with shifting allegiances, who was viewed as dangerous and not trustworthy at first. Rarely expresses emotions.)

Herschel - Master Roshi (Bearded old man who, while not particularly powerful, is valued for his knowledge and wisdom.)
Well that's all I can think of for now. Let me know if you can think of any more there must be some more comparisons out there to be made.

Hey Subby, the Carl thing was last season.

Most improved character ever.

I don't find it accurate but really enjoy that Yamcha was the only one not to get a follow up note.
Of course, the major flaw in this is that Season 3 of DBZ was the drawn out "Why is nothing f****ing happening?" season whereas Walking Dead's Season 2 seems to have been that.

My contributions:

Jimmy = Launch (generally forgettable character, reappears after you'd forgotten they exist)

Martinez = Captain Ginyu (Frieza's right hand man [after losing his first one], becomes less and less important but continues to be referenced and appear in the background)

There's a webisode that gives her origin story.  After watching it, I got the sense that Rick and Lori might have actually known her in life.

2013-02-26 03:41:42 PM
Has this show gotten better recently? I gave up shortly after they released all the zombies from the barn on the farm and the Asian kid boned the farmer's daughter in the pharmacy. Up to that point, each episode was so friggin' PONDEROUS. It's like they had 12 minutes of plot each week, but draaaaagged it out to a one-hour show.

I got tired of everyone just sitting around all the time having discussions about the morality of killing zombies and the bleakness of their situation and what the "right thing to do" might be. Then Shane would do something crazy, Carl or one of the women would get lost or hurt or just wander off stupidly, maybe a zombie would show up and get whacked quickly, then perhaps a heated but ultimately pointless conversation about who was in charge, and then we're back to more introspection and moralizing and intensely whispered conversations that would go like: "I would love to do [action], but THIS [situation] is keeping me from doing it! Do you really want to be like [morally ambiguous character]?" For Pete's sake, watching them look for that missing girl for three farking episodes was torture.

I love zombie shiat, but I gave up. You could compress an entire season into 2 hours and lose nothing. Has it gotten better? Should I give it another try on Netflix or something? Because I get the feeling this is like "Lost" in the fact that the writers don't know where it's going and are just making shiat up on the fly simply because they didn't expect it to be a hit that would justify multiple seasons of forethought. So they just streeeeeeetch it out each week.

Getting rid of Darabont made the show better, imo.  He was responsible for that whole Where's Sophia clusterfark, although AMC forced his hands there with budget cut.

I get the feeling you haven't watched lately.  The war with the Govenor and Woodbury is getting pretty tense.  Rick's shiat is still all messed up and Andrea is boofing the Gov at the same time she's thinking about killing him in his sleep.

Fairly sure.  It was the popular, but erroneous, belief that Darabont left before the second season, which technically was correct since he did leave before the second season came on the air.  But he was very much involved with the production of the first half of that season, and then left afterwards.  The Sophia-in-barn idea was all his.

I have not watched lately. I see it on sometimes and am tempted to watch, but I'm out of the loop now and have a lot of catching up to do, but I'm not sure I want to make the investment. Like I said, I'd love to love this show, and I gave it a fair chance, but it just got...well, "ponderous" is the word that keeps coming to me. Was there a major change after the farm or just more of the same?

The pacing has gotten more even lately, I think. The Woodbury storyline really adds a lot of action.
 
2013-02-26 04:22:06 PM
We laugh and joke about Carl leaving the house, but in reality, he was off meditating away from his controlling mom so he could attune his body to be a one-man zombie killing machine.

That's what Season Two was, setting him up to be the badass in Season 3.
 
2013-02-26 04:22:52 PM
I really think that the bicycle zombie, the little girl in the beginning of the first ep, and Glen's chair fight are the best, and in that order.  Everything else has been fun, but those ones stick with me the most.
 
2013-02-26 04:23:48 PM

TeddyRooseveltsMustache: They're all good. But trunk slam zombie kill is a top favorite for me.


Trunk slam kill was the first kill where I had to rewind and do the instant replay.  It was awesome.
The fattie in the well is also a personal fave.

Other mentionables for me:
- Glenn tied up chair kill
- Michonne offing her pets so they didn't make noise
- Penny
- Biker crawler
 
2013-02-26 04:24:09 PM
Here's a source that indicates Darabont was responsible for the first half of Season 2, and Mazzara responsible for the second half.  Darabont, a film director, crafted a long story arc (searching for Sophia).  But Mazzara, a write on The Shield, is known for faster pacing and tightly packed episodes.  If the stark contrast between the two halves of the season didn't tip you off to the presence of two very different show runners, well, it should have.

2013-02-26 04:27:33 PM
I do not like the new Fark comment box, screwed up my HTML.  Whoops.

The bike crawler was nice and all, but that was actually not the first zombie kill.  Did everyone forget about the girl in the very first scene?  It was a foreshadowing of Sophia, and when I saw it, it was then when I realized that this was going to be a show unlike any other.

It Didn't help that they blew their set budget early.  It's not like they wanted to spend 3 episodes stranded on a highway, there just wasn't money for the sets they wanted.  Hence the "pondering", I suspect.
 
2013-02-26 04:36:42 PM
The best zombie kill is a multiple of them...melee moments!
My personal favorites are when Michonne unlocks and releases the zombies...the slices them to ribbons, all 6 or so of them...
Nice!
And my other favorite melee moment is when they take the prison...when T-Dog gets the shield, when Maggie figures out how to kill the armored, riot gear zombies...
Again...nice!

MagSeven: No Sophia? It was the first time they really killed a zombified "one of their own", besides Shane (who wasn't killed in front of the group). It also gave them a reason to get off that farking farm.


Exactly. Though everyone hates the farm, the end of that episode was one of best moments of the series so far. We go from a group who are more than willing to knock off all the zombies in the barn, while those who live there protest and scream, to Sophia's appearance. The group stops, unable to do anything, unwilling to finish her off. Rick, who has been trying to broker a peace amongst the groups, and has yet to participate in the barn slaughter, is the only one who can do what must be done. Things change in a hurry.
 
2013-02-26 04:45:39 PM
One of my faves is the episode they find the prison and decide to just go in hand-to-hand combat to clear it out.  Rick goes to remove the turned guards helmet and all of his skin just comes off with it to reveal the skeleton.

I partially agree with you there.  I did mention that Darabont's hands were tied by AMC's budget slash.  But look at it this way - Darabont and Mazzara both had to work with the same sets for Season 2, with each director at the helm for their respective half of the season.  Mazzara did a much better job with faster pacing and tighter episodic arcs than Darabont did, yet they had the same budget and used the same sets during that season.

I never thought of it that way! Now wonder Carl is able to step up in Season 3. Rick, alright!? He learned it by watching Rick!

I don't actually think the second half was really any better than the first. It had more action, but I really disliked the Roland plot line. And yes, hanging out on a farm for 2 months might make for boring TV, but I can totally see that happening in an actual zombie apocalypse. They found a safe haven, so they stayed there until it became unsafe.

Then Shane would do something crazy, Carl or one of the women would get lost or hurt or just wander off stupidly, maybe a zombie would show up and get whacked quickly, then perhaps a heated but ultimately pointless conversation about who was in charge, and then we're back to more introspection and moralizing and intensely whispered conversations that would go like: "I would love to do [action], but THIS [situation] is keeping me from doing it! Do you really want to be like [morally ambiguous character]?" For Pete's sake, watching them look for that missing girl for three farking episodes was torture.

I love zombie shiat, but I gave up. You could compress an entire season into 2 hours and lose nothing. Has it gotten better? Should I give it another try on Netflix or something? Because I get the feeling this is like "Lost" in the fact that the writers don't know where it's going and are just making shiat up on the fly simply because they didn't expect it to be a hit that would justify multiple seasons of forethought. So they just streeeeeeetch it out each week.


In a word, yes.  I've told my friends that started watching again to only watch the first and last 2 episodes of season 2 and skip the rest, it's worthless.  Season 3 has been vastly improved.  No question who is in charge anymore (Rick-tatorship) and everyone has basically embraced the fact that their old sense of morality was a luxury not afforded by the new world.

You and I are watching very different shows.

Possibly.  I'm watching the one where they no longer have any issue with taking human life much less killing zombies, and everyone refers to Rick as the leader and have even mentioned that 'this isn't a democracy' in the most recent episode.  Which show are you watching?

MagSeven: No Sophia? It was the first time they really killed a zombified "one of their own", besides Shane (who wasn't killed in front of the group). It also gave them a reason to get off that farking farm.


Andrea's sister was the first group member zombie kill.
