It seems like they're setting up several of the comics prison storylines, just with different characters.  Hooray nihilism.

So the season finale will be 'The Boogie Woogie Flu'?

Pretty much, mega herd overwhelms prison and they are forced to abandon it just as the Gov shows up again and is promptly killed.

No, its going to be Jungle Fever.

So what's up with the voice on the radio?  The producer alluded to it being from the comics.  Lemme guess: a place that promises safety but is run by the Governor x1000?  I hope they call him Bigwig.

Notice that they were driving Walter White's car just before their little ... trouble?

It's actually perfectly plausible that these people will all die of disease while living in close quarters without decent water and sanitation.

The microbes win. Ta-da.

I am going to enjoy the outrage when they leave the prison only to follow the voice on the radio to meet up with the Gvernor how has redubbed himself as Negan.

It must have been drive time, because when they picked up the signal they didn't hear 'Hey, hey goooooooood morning! Crazy Dan here with Wacky Walker and the Morning Zoo!'

*possible SPOILER*

In the comics, after the Governor wipes out the prison, the remaining survivors head out on the road.  They run into another small group of survivors (characters who have been announced to join the cast for this season already), coming from Texas.  One of them has a bulky handheld radio, and claims to be in contact with a group in Washington DC that's the remnants of civilization, and they should all go that way, because he's also a scientist and knows the cure and needs to get it to them.  So they all start walking towards DC.

It would have been awesome if they'd had a conversation about the incredible amount of leg room, the subtle luxury of the interior, and "drivablility".

"Man, if we weren't driving this sweet Dodge Charger, we would have totally lost control after hitting that zombie!"
 
2013-10-28 11:38:30 AM
My only issue with the last episode was the Charger. If you're going out to look for supplies, shouldn't you take something big enough to seat 4 and still have room to store these supplies? Or maybe even a car that could go off-road/over a pile of  zombies? *sigh* who am I kidding, I'll still watch this show till it runs its course. no point biatching.

Of course, it apparently leaks oil, since it was a quart low.

The argument over killing the killing the 8 year old is my favorite scene in the books. It's a shame they haven't introduced them.

i rented one once. it was the slowest, least maneuverable, nastiest piece-of-shiat car i've ever driven.

I'm going to be upset if this turns into everyone hating on Carol for being the only person who is taking this whole zombie apocalypse thing seriously. From the trails of blood, I took it that the two burned bodies had already turned or they were nearly about to die and Carol just put them out of their misery.

Seriously, did no one learn anything from The Mist? Carol knows how to get shiat done. Doubt her and you'll just find yourself in a car with Dale, Andrea, two other people, and only four bullets to go around when then monsters come for you.

I don't know if I am alone, but to me there feels like a disconnect between last season and this one and so far, this season hasn't pulled me in. I'll keep giving it a chance because there really isn't anything else on Sunday night

I hope they don't follow the comics at this point. It was right around this point when the comics got off the rails and became repetitive. The showrunners should break completely from this point.

Step 1. Shoot zombie in head with cross bow.

You would have thought by now they would have started to at least start bleaching and scrubbing stuff up. Hell at least raid a local FD/PD and get some HAZMAT suits.

It'll be really interesting if they take that route on the TV show.  I agree, it's a heavy philosophical moment, with serious moral implications, but I'm not sure AMC is willing to kill an 8-year-old on TV like that. They've been skirting around the 'I do what needs doing' thing for a while, and I'm not sure they're really going to delve deep into it with Carl.

Of course, Carol's joining that team, so maybe we'll see it elsewhere.

I get a little confused as to why Darryl likes his crossbow so much. For one or two medium range shots it has advantages, but facing a group the reload is just too cumbersome. For the life of me i don't know why EVERYONE isn't carrying a pointy stick with them wherever they go. Carol could have taken care of that little group by the creek without breaking a sweat.

That would be something called a 'good idea', and it's not something the characters apparently come up with.  Hell, the prison probably has plenty of bleach.

They also need to have the kids walk around the perimeter fence daily and kill any walkers within reach.  It prevents the build up and it accustoms the children to killing walkers without exposing them to significant danger.  They might also want to think about better water hygiene, including not drinking the water from the creek the walkers hang out by.  At any given time during the day, there should be no more than one or two walkers at the fence.

And for that matter, they need to stop burying the dead.  That puts the body, with all its infections and nastiness, into the ground.  Where you grow plants. And get water.  God knows what their latrine situation is.

This episode was written by Robert Kirkman. Considering Rob's the one getting all the showrunners fired, I think there is a good possibility the show aligns w/ the comic more closely. And that would be bad. If the show aligned closer to Invincible, that'd be okay, though.

A small to mid size herd around the prison would make a good defense. Would make the curious living think twice before entering.

I wonder what the effect would be of taking Michonne's trick of taking off the lower jaw and arms and tying them up outside the fence.

He's said he wants the show to stand alone, and that if the comics mean so much to people maybe they should stick to the comics.

Assuming that herd is headed toward the prison, may not be a bad idea to do something with all that razor wire on top of the fences.

One problem that the survivors are going to face is women. There's only so many breeders to go around. Inbreeding is going to be an issue. They should be making sure the gala have multiple babies with different dads.

General "Buck" Turgidson: Doctor, you mentioned the ratio of ten women to each man. Now, wouldn't that necessitate the abandonment of the so-called monogamous sexual relationship, I mean, as far as men were concerned?
Dr. Strangelove: Regrettably, yes. But it is, you know, a sacrifice required for the future of the human race. I hasten to add that since each man will be required to do prodigious... service along these lines, the women will have to be selected for their sexual characteristics which will have to be of a highly stimulating nature.
