Looks brilliant! The first episode has been leaked, so everyone who loves American TV and zombies get on it!

What I read of the comic was outstanding, and the trailer made it seems as if they were just doing a panel for shot remake. Should be mandatory viewing.

First episode is mint, but the quality of the preview is s****. If you can wait for the proper HD rip, that's probably the way to go. Then you won't be left waiting 2 weeks for another episode as well :frantic:

Traveller's pilot was f***ing good, as everybody concurred at the time. The network ruined the show by condensing the remaining 23 episodes into 8.

Title: Re: The Walking Dead
Post by: cubaricho on Tuesday 2 November 2010, 12:00:02 AM
Thought it was overall a good pilot.  Needs to have some stuff worked on but overall it was good.  I really like the look of the rest of the season as well, it looks like the zombies will be more of a backdrop to the actual drama within the groups of survivors.  Can't wait for the prick partner to get it for moving in on his partner's wife.

The comic very rarely got bogged down in zombie killing. It's very good storytelling, and although I haven't seen the pilot yet, I'm hearing that it's essentially the comic come to life. It's going to be very very good.

Just waiting for my favorite character to show up.
Title: Re: The Walking Dead
Post by: Adam^ on Tuesday 2 November 2010, 02:55:05 AM
The comic is more about how people interact and behave without the rules of society, the zombies are just they excuse as such that allow people to do what they want. I'm going to watch this now but I should really go to bed !
Title: Re: The Walking Dead
Post by: leffe186 on Tuesday 2 November 2010, 03:18:32 AM
I thought the pilot was beautifully paced. I hope they can sustain that through 1 hour episodes as well. It sometimes puts me off when they ask British actors in to do the accent etc, but Andrew Lincoln was great. I'm very tempted to check out the comic now.

I'm glad they weren't overly squeamish either - it didn't pull many punches.

Great episode. I was inspired and bought the first two graphic novels yesterday. Almost finished with the second. Pretty good stuff.

If there is a comparison to be made to another show it would have to be Battlestar Galactica.

Similarities: Humanity has essentially been eradicated. How far can you go in trying to save it without actually destroying it? AT what point is humanity not worth saving? Did we bring thsi s*** upon oursleves because of our own shortcomings (as a race)?

I hope is stays there. If it ends with Angels and non-sensical "visions" the way Battlestar went toward the end I'll be irritated. I doubt it though. Seems to be locked on gritty Noiresque realism.

Also I though Andrew Lincoln did a good job. I think English actors love doing southern american accents (see "True Blood"). Renee Zellweger, Gwyneth Paltrow and the cast of Spinal Tap aside, North Americans are usually crap at mimicing accents on the other side of the pond.

That's exactly what I was thinking. We're going to need some serious spoiler policing as the comics have been out for a while.

Nixon, I agree with you about the wife. I also loved the scene with Andrew Lincoln in the park, both the set-up and the way it panned out.

If they keep managing to set up a cliffhanger each episode it will be unmissable.

Is this black guy going to be in everything where the whole of humanity is in danger? Thought he dithered on the shooting of his wife/zombie too long (schlock tension). I was waiting for the boy to say. "You shot mama"!!!  :lol:

It is spellbinding in the sense that you know it can't go a whole season with just zombie shootouts. Waiting for the next layer.

Title: Re: The Walking Dead
Post by: Andy on Saturday 6 November 2010, 08:27:35 PM
Disagree, I thought the scene was well-done from the perspective of making me ask myself: "would I be able to shoot her?"... They might be zombies, but Darabont has done a fine job of adding a lingering human element to them.

Yup - terrific first episode. It's very dark and not for the squeamish - I hope it maintains this tone. Only 6 episodes for the first season as well, apparently. Second season (if commissioned) will run to thirteen.
Title: Re: The Walking Dead
Post by: MKSC on Saturday 6 November 2010, 10:07:06 PM
Thought it was a decent first episode. The horse being disembowled was pretty grusome. It will have to be good and they will have to find something new to do with the content as over the last few years the whole zombie slash virus that makes people like zombies thing has been done to death, so to speak.

There is no cure though is there? They have already died from the fever and it's just some sort of bacteria inside them going on auto pilot.  Even if you cure the bacteria they just go back to being a corpse.
Title: Re: The Walking Dead
Post by: Magpie on Sunday 7 November 2010, 12:35:35 AM
I think the scene was excellent. It was the way they made her look human-ish and maybe even mouthed some words. And then walked away rather than head towards the gun noise like all the others were. Impossible to know what you'd do but I'd imagine it must be one of the hardest things ever, kill a loved one.

I agree with that (her coming back to the house and trying the doorknob etc). But and it's a small but the shooting scene with him unable to pull the trigger was a little bit milked imo (schlock emotions). On the whole I have high hopes for this series.
Title: Re: The Walking Dead

The preview doesn't make it seem like it's a big deal, although they could just be saving it for the actual show.  They make the racist dude seem like a bigger deal.

Second episode was class as well. Really can't wait to see more of this.
I know this has been branded about too many shows, but it does remind me of Lost in some ways. Too many shows have tried to be the "new Lost" by having a gimmick story and then nothing more. This, however, feels like it's relying as heavily on its characters as its story, which is why I can see it being a keeper in the long run.
Obviously too early to tell, but it has certainly been a very, very promising start :)

Finally saw it last night, and it got off to a cracking start. Though, him waking up in a hospital bed was a bit too 28 Days Later for my liking. But once he got outside, I thing they captured the feeling of a desolate Earth perfectly.

There was something kinda sad about him shooting that zombie with no legs. To me it seemed more like it was reashing out for help, rather than reaching to get him (which it obviously was). Quite comical too. In the tank when he came face to face with the soldier zombie got a little chuckle from me.

Can't wait for the next episode. Craic is, its been picked up for a second season...

I wonder if the plans for a Zombieland series will still go ahead, now we have this.

Good second episode, although I thought the pacing was a little "off" compared to the pilot, I'd like to have seen Rick having to do a bit more surviving on his own before meeting up with this other group of people, it moved a little to quickly for my tastes. Good stuff though, it's definitely the best new show this season.

By a mile. Boardwalk has failed to get me interested, which is a shame because on paper, it should be a great show (it might be, I've only seen the first two episodes). Except for that though, what else have we got? The Event? It's so far behind this on every level it's laughable.

Good stuff though, it's definitely the best new show this season.

I thought the pacing was pretty good (the first one was just perfect) but I agree...

Second episode was class as well. Really can't wait to see more of this.
I know this has been branded about too many shows, but it does remind me of Lost in some ways. Too many shows have tried to be the "new Lost" by having a gimmick story and then nothing more. This, however, feels like it's relying as heavily on its characters as its story, which is why I can see it being a keeper in the long run.
Obviously too early to tell, but it has certainly been a very, very promising start :)

I hope so, particularly as I didn't buy into Lost at all, but have leapt headlong into this.

I don't know whether to hope for resolution or not. Six episodes this series sounds great, and I hope that 13 for the next doesn't spread the quality too thin. The production values are spot on so far, and that makes the world of difference in zombie stuff.

Towelie mentions the characters being a strong point, but I thought the two groups of focus in the second episode were disappointing, especially the incredibly cliched, racist, brainless antagonist. The strength of the show at the minute is its atmosphere and the acting performance of whats-his-face who plays Rick. At the moment I feel the characters are actually bit shallow, save for the lead and Lennie James's character in the pilot...

Lennie's always good. :smitten:

I know what you mean about the redneck though and it seemed weird that they'd all been together for a while and then he suddenly comes out with all that. He's obviously going to come back at some point though because the bloke he kicked the s*** out of locked the door to the roof to stop the zombies getting to him. Also, why doesn't anyone in a zombie show call them f***ing zombies!?! Properly pisses me off that.

I think that's the reason why Simon Pegg says the "Z-word" lines in Shaun of the Dead. It seems to be a given that people in zombie movies exist in worlds without zombie movies.

I see your point, but to be fair, we're only two episodes in, and most of these characters were introduced in this episode. IIRC, I didn't think Sawyer was much more than a semi-racist hillbilly in the first few episodes of Lost. Hopefully they'll have time to develop (character development, whooop Kaizero!) into deeper characters as the show goes on.

Only watched the first episode so far and was quite impressed.  Was good to watch on FX as well as they managed to go for the entire show (about and hour and ten minutes) without putting a single ad break in.

He basically said it was a bit bland and 'done before' compared it to, you guessed it; 'Lost' it's just a group of survivors  battling this force. I just think he totally missed the point, I find Newsnight review so pretentious it's unbearable, however the rest of the panel we're complimentary.


My only gripe now is with FX, I've seen a handful of adverts for the show but not once have they said when it's on, just 'Friday'. Why they don't state the time of a program that's already battling a tough night's programming elsewhere is just baffling.

I finished graphic novel #11 when I wrote that. I just finished #12 last night.

I loved the character development of Carl and the Twins BTW in issues 10 and 11... but there is no way a TV show is going to have that. As soon as the higher ups saw the script for that, production would be halted and the writers would be fired... probably sentenced to some sort of mandatory therapy as well.

I will read the next graphic novel #13 when it comes out next week. But I am not looking forward to it.... more dreading it than anything. It seems like a happy ending is relatively possible at this stage, but I know its going to hell with the usual culling of the characters I actually like.

You can't just mask smell like that. Realistically, the only thing you can do is create a decoy of human smell. Also, zombies can't f***ing climb ladders or fences, the only way they'll ever get over something is if enough of them pile up in front of it.

Not sure how. Walking Dead has settled into relationship-drama mode already. At this stage of proceedings Lost had just aired arguably one of its best, most game-changing episodes during its entire six-year run.

The pace and quality since the pilot has been more akin to Lost season two, which is worrying so early.

Yeah, well exactly Andy.  I watched 3 series of Lost and gave up on it.  Don't regret it but let's not get into that.  The Walking Dead has suddenly turned into something I didn't think it would be.

I should be grateful really as I'll give it another few episodes and then pack it in if it's still owt like this week's.

Edit: in other words, I don't mean Lost got so pedestrian so early - I just mean that this episode reminded me of Lost.  Series 2, you're probably just about right, yeah.

To be honest, I think what you're really saying is "The Walking Dead has turned into an American TV show"... It's a comparison I didn't expect to make, but the second and third episode reminded me more of Flashforward than anything else; good premise, but it already feels like they're stalling - possibly because they're not sure how to translate the better elements of comic books into a network series.

As a general rule, when TV writers are stalling, they resort to relationship s***. Even Breaking Bad, Dexter, Fringe (to a lesser extent) etc. have fallen into that pit at times.

Not really sure how to make it viable either. The comic never explains why the zombie thing happened or gives even the slightest shred of hope for the future. It is an interesting comic but at the end of the day it is merely an exercise in depravity.

I don't really see it with Dexter and I'm yet to watch Breaking Bad but will do soon.  Dexter's always had the chase to keep it ticking along.  Some of the bits with the dad are a bit cringeworthy though.

My favourite American dramas of the last 10 years are Six Feet Under, which is all relationship bullshit but that's what it is, and The Wire, which I found to be fairly unique.

For me, the pace has just been far too uneven. The pilot was perfect - they should have stuck with the idea of a lone guy walking through the zombie masses alone for a while, it would have made finding a group of people (and in particular his wife and child) far more meaningful than it ultimately was... The fact that the characters that Rick's met are very bland and cliched doesn't really help either.

Half of the characters on the show never existed. The Dale/Blonde sisters (I'm s*** with names) stuff is in there too, but it follows a very nice arc over the course of the series.

There is a lot of stalling, and the pacing is off because they're doing stuff with a bunch of characters that are probably guaranteed to die.

I don't remember nearly as much as I thought I would from those early issues, but if you liked the first ep, and end up hating the show, just read the comics.

imo, it went to s*** when they started adding stuff that wasn't in the comic.

I stand by what I said earlier: The comic is not a viable TV show.

Not really sure how to make it viable either. The comic never explains why the zombie thing happened or gives even the slightest shred of hope for the future. It is an interesting comic but at the end of the day it is merely an exercise in depravity.

I think it would work, tbh. I mean, it would be depressing as f***...but why wouldn't the Apocalypse be depressing?

To be honest, I think what you're really saying is "The Walking Dead has turned into an American TV show"... It's a comparison I didn't expect to make, but the second and third episode reminded me more of Flashforward than anything else; good premise, but it already feels like they're stalling - possibly because they're not sure how to translate the better elements of comic books into a network series.

As a general rule, when TV writers are stalling, they resort to relationship s***. Even Breaking Bad, Dexter, Fringe (to a lesser extent) etc. have fallen into that pit at times.

Should they be stalling so early though? I would have thought this series (with it being so small), would have been planned out exactly how they wanted it too.

Go to the country and build a massive fence to stop them getting in. The country would be good because there are less zombies and more opportunities to find/grow food. I think if an outbreak happened (lol) id be torn between doing that and just living the dream in a shopping centre (mall for Mike).

Yep, what you need in a zombie outbreak is a fortress, preferably raised and with extra defences (walls, moats, etc.). The top of a hill isn't the worst you could try (how about sewers, for example) but it's obviously not a great idea.

And for what it's worth I think their position was pretty good as they could actually see the city too, while being a safe distance and having the quarry doesn't hurt either.

Meh. Lets admit this has been s**** on the whole. However, its veering so far from the comic that I'll continue to watch just to see how they make it work.

In the back of each comic issue there's a Q&A and the writer has been bigging up the TV show back there for the past 3 issues or so. He seems to have quite abit of input on the show so you would expect it to be good....

The only major Lost-similarity was in the atmosphere of the pilot. Some slight similarities between Darabont's directorial style and the style J.J. Abrams' used in the Lost pilot too. Since the pilot, though, the entire thing has felt nothing like Lost at all.

My expectations dropped after I watched the second one twice, but I've just watched 3-5 straight through and I still really like it. I don't mind the slow pace at all, makes a nice change from pretty much everything else. As long as they don't pull punches going forward.

It almost feels like a six-episode pilot, which is not surprising. Hopefully everyone will get more comfortable for the next series and they really get to grips with it.....and go batshit crazy from time to time.

Pretty bored of this show now.  The dialogue is s*** and dull and boring, which wouldn't be a huge issue if it was all action.  But it's not - it's all dialogue.  The characters are painfully f***ing dull as well.  When I first saw the Asian lad, I had an extremely racist thought, i.e. "ace, this kid's going to be like the kid out of The Goonies except all grown up.  He's going to be setting booby traps all over the shop, or failing that at least he'll have some decent craic".  But nar, he's a bore like the rest of them.

Shame because the pilot was excellent.  I just don't think I've got the patience for this type of show at all.

As I've understood it the staff writers only had contracts for season one, so he "released" them rather than "sacked" them. Which apparently makes what he's done "legal". I'm still in two minds whether or not it is though, and so's probably the WGA. Will be interesting to see what'll happen over the next few months regarding that. Would be quite interesting to see how it'd work out if he gets to do what he wants, mind.

Just watched the finale, thought it was pretty good. Very intense towards the end. Don't really see why everyone seems to be criticising it so much, the dialogue/acting seems fine to me. Waiting for Shane to complete his nervous breakdown and either attack Rick or f*** off on his own and get zombiefied. Cannot wait for Season 2.

Initially I was really looking forward to this, but ended up watching out of necessity than actually wanting to. I'm terrible at admitting stuff is s*** when I've invested time in it. Having said that the finale was a lot better than the previous episode by 1000%.

It just seemed overly depressing. The pace was slow and there was little exploration. Hopefully the first series was just building up the characters and their stories meaning now it can truly begin. I think I'll give the first episode of series 2 a try and if it's still following a long the depressing slow pace I'll bin it.

Loved the first series, agreed it didn't live up to the early episodes which were some of the best tv I'd seen all year, but overall a solid 8 and I reckon this series will be better now they've secured funding and a full 20 odd episode season.

That's got to be the least intriguing trailer of all time. We're already aware that it's about f***ing zombies, seriously, what the f*** is that supposed to add? And that pretty much sums this show up for me, it seems to have been written by people with no imagination and given that it's based upon pre-existing material that's pretty pathetic. It started at a break-neck pace, too fast in fact - Hmm, I wonder how he'll find his family? Oh there they are. - and then it just totally bogged down with them in that camp and pretty much f*** all happened, then it was back to break-neck pace - Let's all go to the CDC! Let's all leave the CDC! - and that was it. By the end I was pretty ambivalent as to whether or not I saw it and I certainly didn't rush to get them watched, I'll watch the first one, but if it doesn't improve then I doubt I'll stick with it, although it'll benefit from the fact that, other than BB, there's jack-s*** to watch at the moment. I know that they're limited by what's in the comics, but it's a shame that they didn't use Lenny Whatshisface - you know the bloke that played Hawkins - because he's class, hopefully he'll come back into it this season.

Edited the title there, went on to another forum and they were openingly talking about the comics in their TV thread :undecided:

I thought the premier was brilliant, I didn't really see it as a premier though, it felt like one in the build up but when watching it, it felt like episode 7 really and I kinda like that. I thought the character development was good, particularly with Daryl, which is good if the show is to stay on the air for a while. Im in 2 minds about the whole trying to find the girl thing, it was a bit long but having said that it was a great story to show the cracks in the group and it has helped set the tone for the coming episodes which seem like they will be very fast paced. Kinda hoped they would return to the Vatos facility in this episode though.

There were a couple of "wtf" moments, like T-dog recovering really fast from what seemed like a horrific injury and the zombies creeping up on them on the highway, despite Dale being on top of the RV with a pair of binoculars! Overall I thought it was a cracking episode and can't wait for episode 2!

Not watched this season yet, but we've gone over this a few times. I have no problem with a slow pace overall, as long as it's even and it allows the characters to develop. The first season could have been legitimately slow in getting him to the group, but they p*ssed away that opportunity. There have been nice set-pieces, but whoever's supposed to have been overseeing the writing has taken their eye off the ball. The big picture has been jumbled.

Still think they can go back to the source material and resurrect the show *cough*. Balls-to-the-wall nuttiness. That first episode (season 1) was really, really good, and showed what can be achieved.

For anyone that's read the comics it's pretty obvious what has been said to Rick by the scientist, assuming they still follow it loosely.

I read the first eighty or so editions of the comics but they're still throwing twists in for comic readers. It doesn't ruin the show at all, I'd say it's made it better for me.

I enjoyed the episode FWIW. One thing that annoyed me was that the herd couldn't smell them when they were under the cars, yet in episode two of season one (Guts), they made the point that the zombies are attracted by smell, hence them covering themselves in zombie guts to hide the scent of themselves. Agree with Decky in regards to Daryl. Good character and glad to see some character expansion with him.

The kid who ran away in the woods should die.

The woman with the shortback and sides should die.

The kid who got shot should die.

The woman on her period should die.

The Mexican looking dude he's alright he can life.

The black dude is too big, he's using up precious little food, water and petrol, he should die.

The whore should die.

The sheriff should still be in a coma.

The redneck should just kill them all and life in the woods.

Yeah, it's a show about a zombie apocalypse that STILL manages to be crap most of the time! Imagine how bad it would be if it wasn't about a zombie apocalypse, it'd be turbo s***!

I want to like it and therefore it really annoys me that I don't. :D

Anyway, don't reckon I'll watch it from here on in, unless people tell me it's got significantly better, then I'll catch up. To be fair that's exactly what I said I'd do at the end of the last season.

Not overly impressed with that first episode like. I tried to get my lass involved with it, she didn't want to but summed it up canny well; "all they seem to f***ing do is run into zombies, nearly die then get away from said zombies, every bloody week".

She's right anarl.

They would need to do something good with Sophia because I cannot believe that story hasn't moved on in 2 episodes. Getting sick of the highway and searching for her man, just move on with the story already. Still not back at the VATOS building either, really wish the season preview didn't show clips from episodes beyond the first two. It was a good episode, but it was too short, it really needed to be the same length as the first episode.

On a side note, I'll be disappointed if Merle shows up again. I think we were given a reminder about him in this weeks episode, with the medication. I just find it unbelievable that he could possibly cross paths with them again considering he has no idea where they are going and he is severely injured and alone.

Have enjoyed the episodes, although there are times when I do skip a bit ahead when I notice they are about to do some long-winded speech type thing (like the lady praying for her daughter in the church).

I also enjoy the pace but there are just lots of scenes that seem totally unnecessary and don't move the story along all that much.  They can keep the same pace but also have pertinent scenes that move the story along.

I think they need to pick up the pace a bit in the next episode or 2 because there are only 11 episodes left in the season and season 3 hasn't been confirmed yet I don't think? Was there any reason why the season is so short btw? Arnt most US series' 24 or so episodes?

AMC Renews The Walking Dead for a Third Season

AMC announced today the renewal of The Walking Dead for a third season. Season 2 continues to deliver the strongest telecasts for any drama in basic cable history against Adults 18-49 shattering a basic cable record set nearly 10 years ago for a single drama telecast (The Dead Zone). The Walking Dead is based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics. Glen Mazzara serves as series' showrunner. Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert and Frank Darabont are executive producers. Greg Nicotero is a co-executive producer.

Kind of irritates me how the zombies have gotten faster between S1 and S2. It also irritated me in S2E01 that the zombies all of a sudden couldn´t smell them when they walked past them, when the sheriff and asian dude had to rub themselves in zombie goo from top to bottom just so they wouldn´t get noticed in the first season.

For some reason the idea seems to be spreading that people want to watch slow paced dramas where nothing actually happens. Walking Dead, Terra Nova, Stargate Universe. All three have 'winning' concepts where the writing should be fairly simple and take advantage of the gimmick to kick the series off and then have plenty of storylines to follow.

Basically Terra was s***, Stargate was spiced up with wierd aliens and a universal mystery backstory.....But Wanking Death has no engaging sub-plots or underlying mythology.

A lot of you seem to have weird expectations about this series. It's based on the comic as you know, and it was never meant as anything other than a drama series where it is 99% about the humans feelings and how they manage something like this. It's not meant as a horror show or anything like that. Just a pure drama. A poorly executed one, though, and that is not good.

However, without actually spoling anything - I'm excited to see if they will use the coolest part from the comics or leave it out. And if use it, I am wondering how far they'll drag it. I expect major changes to it or even it to be left out due to its content, but we'll see about that later unless something happens.

Everything about that was just f***ing wrong... if I had the slightest bit of enthusiasm left for this woeful programme then I'd go into it, but I simply can't be arsed, I just don't care enough to even hate it, it just bores me now. I know what people mean about carrying on watching though, I desperately want to stop watching it and the moment something else comes along to take up my time it'll be this that's first up against the wall, but until then I'll watch the episodes out of habit rather than anything else.

:lol: Reminds me of watching Dragonball Z as a kid. There would be like 15 episodes in a row where literally nothing happened, and we couldn't f***ing wait.
:lol: :lol: f***ing hell, i swear they used just one animation frame for over half the episodes. That s*** was slower than real time.

I too am finding this very difficult to watch.

The thing is, I usually quite enjoy dramas which can be occasionally quite plodding - Breaking Bad, Rubicon, even Stargate Universe -  to name a couple of recent examples.

This however is like watching grass grow.

Your second question hasn't been answered yet. That's what the end of the last episode was all about.

f*** you all  :lol: it's one of the only things worth watching on TV.  My Sky box seems to only use channels Sky Atlantic, FX, and 401-405.

I have to admit though, there are some ridiculous bits in it, like the running hot water and electricity.  Must have a bloody good generator out the back with an unlimited diesel stockpile.  The wasting ammo by firing into a group of zombies is a bit ridiculous and all.  I'm only 3 or 4 episodes in, so perhaps I'll get bored of it, but I don't find it particularly boring and barring Rick's wife, I thought the acting was pretty decent.

I do also agree there aren't enough likeable characters, Shane and Daryll are the only good ones, I did like Ottis though  :(

I'm outta here, before I talk myself into thinking I don't actually enjoy it  :lol: :lol: only heard and read positive reviews on it before now.  Must be the over anyalysis on this forum, it's taken over the Ben Arfa thread  :laugh:

So far the second season has been nothing short of a melodramatic waste of a man's time. Hoping they'll include a few episodes of what that little girl has been going through, sort of like an Anne Frank situation but with zombies; it would be a lot more engaging than that tiresome love triangle and the incessant religious tripe that's being spouted atm.

Is there anything out there similar to this, but..you know, good?

At least those that say it's s*** actually analyse the show, instead of just coming in going "GOOD EP" with no substance.  Fact is, all those of us that slag it are people who have wanted to like it from the get go and are severely disappointed.  It's not like, Indi aside (;)), we just slag shows for the hell of it.  You only have to go into a Dexter or Breaking Bad thread to see that if something is good, it will get good reviews. 

You guys can never say what's good about it.  It's just not a good TV show, and the reason it still pulls people in is due to its concept as has been alluded to five million times, not because people enjoy watching something they don't like, just so they can come on here and moan.

The fact some of you, who claim it's good, in turn say "I really think it will start to pick up now", proves you think it's been at best mediocre and at worst flat s***.

As for this week, it was better in my opinion.  Terribly predictable she'd shoot him in the head, but at least seemed to move at a little more than snail's pace.  Has it been given a third season?
Title: Re: The Walking Dead - US Pace/Comic stuff in spoiler tags.
Post by: Froggy on Wednesday 16 November 2011, 12:27:43 PM
There's a few things I find wrong with this show, but I still think the ends will justify the means. Yes it is moving a slow pace which may annoy some people, but it was always going to be hard for them to maintain the same pace from season one since the season length has doubled.

Personally, I've read the comics and there's so many things in the show that are hinting towards big moments in the comics which makes me enjoy it all the more. I think the dialogue is great as well even if their southern accents are a little over the top.

In regards to this recent episode, I cannot see what was wrong with it. We have the tension between Rick and Hershel, the romance between Glenn and Maggie, Andreas extreme need to try and prove herself and then you have Daryl. This episode added a whole new dynamic to Daryl in my opinion with the hallucinations of Merle.

A massive part of the reason I come in and say "good episode" is because I'm at work on Mondays and its a nightmare typing on my mobile (this took f***ing ages) . If you want a full breakdown of every episode from me I'm more than happy to do so when I get home. The positives massively outdo the negatives in my opinion.

Still liking it, not bored of it and don't mind the 'slow pace' enjoy the character development and the cliffhangers at the end of each episode. Although they're a tad annoying I suppose.

I'm only on ep5 though, still so far so good for me.  The first series was too short I thought, so I'm glad they made this one longer.  Only characters I can't stand is the wife and that bloody short haired bint, I wish the zombies would just appear at the farm and eat them two.

The ending was good but the rest of it was just a bit 'meh' I think. Nothing really happened. It almost feels like Coronation Street with zombies. I still like it but it really hasn't lived up to my expectations this season, I'm also starting to think they are just dragging it out to get more episodes/seasons out of it. Bit risky really, also very risky having a mid season break after those 7 episodes. I can see a lot of people ending their interest in it now. It kinda annoys me now as well, because this is exactly the kind of show I wanted to see for years, I LOVED season 1, now its a completely different show. Also what about Morgan Jones? Has Rick completely forgot about him?

Outside of the last 10 minutes what actually happened? This was the last episode for 3 months or something and they played the first 3 quarters of it out like it was a regular episode in a 24 episode season.

My thought on this show is that there are really good parts and then parts where I see what they are trying to do but falling so short.  If you take out all of the bullshit filler then you could have everything that happened this season put into about 3 to 5 episodes instead of however many we've been forced to watch this season. 

I would love for someone to do a re-cut one of these days and cut out all of the crap exposition of telling us what's happening rather than letting us fill in the blanks ourselves like we should.

Still liking this, the end of that episode was amazing.  It actually had my heart going, as queer as it sounds  :lol:, the suspense was superb.

It has been slow paced, but I've still really enjoyed it.  If it continues at this pace for the second half of the series, I will be a bit disappointed though. 

Shane has totally lost it, really like his character and think he plays the mad man role well, best in it by far.  He's clearly going to die in some gruesome way because he's portrayed as the bad guy.

Absolutely no need for this mid season break mind  :huff: Can imagine quite a few that are p*ssed with the pacing of it will just give up now.

Is he the only one not to get a proper sub-plot? I think so :undecided:

He cut himself, that's all he's done this season. First season he dropped a key. Next season I expect him to burn the ham joint.

Did they?  I thought they looked pretty smashed up for a while after?

As far as nitpicking goes, you can do it to almost any film or series.  I found myself doing it with American Horror Story, but I still really enjoyed it.  Doesn't really bother me that much unless it's massively blatant.

The strangest thing on Walking Dead is how they let Carl just stroll about.  Managed to get out the house at the end of episode 12, letting him casually wander off out of sight into the woods on episode 11.  I mean f***ing hell, he's already been shot by an accident and there are zombies all over the shop, but forget about it, let him have his own space and a bit of freedom  :lol:

On the farm I can see your point.  When they actually have run ins with the 'walkers' I find the show amazing.  Builds the suspense really well and even though you know the majority of the time the chracter involved will be fine, I still find myself on the edge of my seat (copyright Alan Pardew) thinking they're going to get killed.

The first half of the series was far too slow, but I didn't mind it too much.  Second half has been superb and if they keep it up for the third, it should be mint.

Still annoying Shane died although it was predictable.  Think he's the best actor out the lot and was the most interesting character.  Hopefully the new characters spice it up a bit, not seen the last one yet, but it looks a good un.

Thought it was overall a good pilot.  Needs to have some stuff worked on but overall it was good.  I really like the look of the rest of the season as well, it looks like the zombies will be more of a backdrop to the actual drama within the groups of survivors.  Can't wait for the prick partner to get it for moving in on his partner's wife. 

Agree with all of this, especially the bit in bold.

I don't know.

None of the characters really evolved. T-Dog was happy to just stand in the background the whole of the season after he hurt his hand. I can only assume he realised he was the only black guy left on the planet, so was probably next in line to die (in keeping with TV/Movie cliché).

"We must be really quiet. We can't let Zombies or other people know where we are..."

Carl spends the entire season walking wherever he wants being a complete dick to the point you hope a Zombie will eat him. You're cheering the Zombie stuck in the mud on when he grabs the little s***.

The whole capture other person in the shed thing was bollocks. It went from 'OH s*** HE IS IMPALED ON THE RAILS LETS LEAVE HIM TO DIE.' to yanking him free to ooh he can walk and even run on that leg now.

NOTHING happened. The whole losing sense of humanity episode fell flat for me as nothing had happened. There was no real sense that they were losing their grip on humanity, as nothing really had happened. Other than them taking over the guy's farm and never really said thank you.

But he died in the comics and I guess there was no real way for him and Rick to co-exist.  Agree though, he was a quality character and the best actor of the bunch, did the whole going mental thing pretty well I thought.  Most the acting is pretty solid though TBF.

Also, hadn't he signed up to start shooting some other series with the original director, Frank Darabont?  So they probably had to write him out the story anyway.

Oh and the preview looks class.  Watched it yesterday and am now buzzing for it, hopefully they haven't just put all the best bits in one trailer!  I am in the US for the season premiere as well.

Stopped watching season 2 about 2 episodes after that bit with the deer. Probably some of the worst television I've ever watched. Well, that's not strictly true, but certainly some of the most dissappointing.

Should watch the rest. The episodes that aired this year (after the mid season break) were pretty solid and season 3 looks like good s***.

I stopped watching after the first season when they wimped out and decided to go MUCH lighter than the comic. Has Michonne (sp?) showed up yet? She was cooooooool.

I enjoy the memes as much as the show tbh.

I know it's an asinine show, but I enjoy griping about strategic errors they make. Picking off lone zombies has so many benefits. Before they realised there were human prisoners left, there were a finite number of zombies in the facility. By picking them off when they're alone you reduce swarms later at minimal risk.

Their sweep of the layout was moronic too. They went as far as possible and then were surprised at having their escape route cut-off.

That was okay, mainly because it's storyline was so simple and they hardly spoke. Only one thing really jarred for me which was right near the beginning when Rick threw away the dog food because although they're comfortable with killing people left right and centre including their friends and innocents, they're not going to stoop to the level of eating dog food. Ridiculous. :lol:

Post by: tmonkey on Tuesday 16 October 2012, 08:11:22 PM
The "walker" that grabbed Hershel kinda ruined what was looking to be a strong start to the season. Maybe I'm expecting too much consistency, but either that walker was pretending to be dead (and therefore highly intelligent for a walker), or is the Usain Bolt of walkers in the speed that it grabbed the leg from a sleeping state, with none of the usual slow initial reactions we've seen before. E.g. in the very first episode iirc, the zombie that "awoke" next to Rick inside the tank took a good few seconds to go from a sleeping state to registering the fact that there was fresh meat right next to him, and that is generally how all the zombies have reacted until now.

And I realise this is being picky, but the ending and the way those prisoners all popped up together like synchronised swimmers in walker poses was pretty cheap. Were they all crouching below that counter and pop up with perfect timing, or did they all run in a straight line holding hands and all arrive at the exact same time? It's a split second so not really significant, but at the same time it's a nonsensical way for the director to get to his goal of a twist where you think they're walkers then realise they're people.

Both completely valid. It's the nitpicking that I enjoy though.

Another good one is that Walkers are almost never heard before they're seen (as though they're f***ing stealth ninjas when they're in groups of 20+ ffs :lol:) and the sheer inconsistency in Walkers sometimes being able to sprint en masse after our (often-not-so-)lovable heroes, and sometimes staggering along slower than Kevin Nolan.

Great posts and was thinking similar. Just doesn't make sense to me - the stealthiness and the sudden quick grab & bite is so strange given they are lumbering all over the place.  Last season when the other old man was bit at the farm, that walker came out of no where.  I'm honestly happy they aren't like the zombies from 28 days and 28 weeks later....those f***ers sprinting scare the living hell out of me.

New Rick can't last like that though, he'll kill everyone off. Think he'll go back to being halfway between old-Rick and new-Rick. Will probably take something like his son doing something stupid and nearly dying to make him realise 'you know what, I need to care about those close to me rather than these dead things'

Yup another hilarious episode. Glad Rick killed s*** Jonas.

I'll be disappointed when he fully forgives Lori though. Lot faster pace to this series which is great short ter, but I hope they're not exhausting their good ideas!

Funniest moment was a tie between:

1) Lori: I know I'm a shitty wife and I'm not winning any mother of the year awards...
     Rick: You're not a bad mother...

2) Lori: Scrubs: loneliest guy in the hospital (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0M9XdlOkSlY#)

I'm reaching, but: when alive you are infected - but it's dormant until death at which point it becomes active.

Bodily fluid transfer from a zombie releases the active infection into your system - which is why the amputation was required.

Thought that was an excellent episode (ignoring that horrific ambush scene). Firstly because Lori wasn't in it. Secondly because I've not read the comics and have no idea who these characters are - this Governor fella seemed pretty much like a Rick equivalent for a while, but with more charisma, right until the end.

Can't recommend the comics enough. They are incredible.

I liked that episode but easily the weakest of the season so far. Not sure why they ruined Merles return. They ruined it at the end of last week's episode, and then again at the begging of this. Merle isn't even a comic book character so this should have been a big deal.

But yeah, read the comics.

It was powerful don't get me wrong, but I think this is the kind of show which might eke more gore/intensity from her becoming a walker and Rick seeing her again.

Maybe Carl shot another walker. I don't know - having had five minutes I'm reneging though :lol:

Initially I thought they'd have relished the opportunity to dress her up as a walker and show her creep forward as Carl wrestles with his emotions, until he pulls the trigger at the last minute after dropping the gun or something, buuuut.. maybe they want her to go out on top - in her angelic, life-giving way - rather than return as a walker like Shane did who was already villainous. To bring her back as a walker would sully her image somehow, which doesn't make sense on any rational level, but.. for the show it might.

In short, ignore me. :)

Open-ended/even infinitesimally ambiguous is always good for a show like this - for when they run out of fresh story/need a filler. Always good to have an emotional zombie trump card to throw at the show. It's possible is all :shifty:

No - I ask b/c I thought same. Hm, wonder if Carl just shot the air, walked out etc. And when Rick goes back on his rampage in the preview he finds her as a walker? :lol: Would be something else, he'd be torn apart and just hack her up. That would be some f***ed up s***.

You're probably right though. I'd love to see that happen - just for the sake of it though.  Knew they should have killed that little guy who f***ed everything up though!

Couldn't stand Lori, so didn't get any feels. Rick's acting was so bad that he looked like he was being sarcastic. I also don't understand the logic of Lori picking the babies life over hers. Surely the baby will die because it has no food, and it's going to attract walkers through its constant crying.

the virus kills canines etc outright doesn't it - they don't re-animate. I suppose it depends on the set of rules the writers want to adhere to. Stick to Max Brooks/Romero territory, or travel into the realm of the absurd (Resident Evil) were survivors bolt away from swooping (infected) crows and s***.

This show needs a dog handler, with a 'cute' trained recon dog - a zombie sniffer or something along the lines. The only thing killed off, that i've given a s**** about, was the horse in the show's premiere.

I didn't think the acting was that bad at the end of the episode.  I actually thought it was quite sad  :blush:

Lots of plot holes and bits to pick at, but there is in most series.  It's a series about f***ing zombies anyway, so I don't really give a s***.

Really enjoying the series so far.  Much better pacing, more gore, the story might actually be going somewhere instead of just 6 episodes talking on a farm...

While I agree she bored me, it's hard to criticise the potrayal of her character. I mean, she lost her husband (even though he was a c***), plus her daughter was discovered as a walker after weeks of searching for her. It's going to be hard to make her likeable IMO.

Maybe people will be more interested when she sucks off Daryl. It's clearly going to happen.

That last episode was the worst of the series imo, I clocked the phone s**** was him just going mental so a lot of it seemed pointless.

Also Meryl randomly bumping into members of the old gang is getting silly too, I could accept coincidence for the first meeting, but 2 within less than a week* is just daft, it makes a mockery of the apocalyptic world they've created tbh. Everyone obviously has to meet up again, but I was hoping it would be a bit more believable (and original).

*Going off the conversations between Michone and the blonde lass.

EDIT: Another thing, the costume department have done a superb job with the "walkers" but everyone else seems to be taking the p*ss :lol:

I don't think they'll go that way as he's way too likeable. They'll probably have him rebel against Merle and stick up for the group, or at least that's what I think they'll do.

Is it too unbelievable that Daryl would kill Merle if he was going to kill Patricia or the baby or something?

Maggie has gotten much better this season.

The pant pull-up in the beginning was hilariously timed.

Glenn was epic :lol:

Glenn's lass (Maggie) is hot as f*** :snod:

Enjoyed the episode.

:thup:

Great ending to the episode. Glenn must be so p*ssed, man. So so p*ssed. Then again, part of me still doesn't forgive either of them for letting Merle get the jump on them. They won't be so catastrophically s*** next time, maybe.

Even though I don't know what happens in the comics etc, it still really bugs me that other people do :fuuu: :lol:

Also, the more I watch torture, the more I think I'd be way better at it than anyone I see on TV, Jack Bauer included.

ALSO, how f***ing raw. They bundle into some dude's house, wake him up, stab the guy, feed him to the walkers, then steal his s*** :lol: And these are the good guys :yao:

These zombies are only threatening when theres a pack of them...when they sneak up on you (last season)...or when they randomly have the most ridiculous reflexes and reaction time and grab your leg and bite it (old man). :lol:

I'm starting to get really confused as it always seemed like they were much more menacing last season few seasons!

Makes the show better for me tbh knowing what goes down in the comics, looking forward as to how they'll show it on tv. It's only loosely based anyway. There's been a ton of changes.

I remember once in the A-Team a scene where a cop/bad-guy car was riddled with bullets then hit a pile of those cardboard boxes they have in the states - but which must be banned over here for health and safety or summat - that can flip a car like a pancake and went flying through the air like a bunch of Illinois nazis before crashing back down to earth as a smouldering wreck, which was then followed by two infeasibly loud and clear voices saying: "You okay Frank?"

I'm glad they got it over with quickly, given that they had already spoiled that in the sneak peek before the mid-season break. It was definitely a much more sedate episode than we've become accustomed to, but it wasn't that bad.

The Andrea speech scene was horrific. OCK would have been gauging his anti-Americana eyes out if he saw that s***.

Definitely not an episode which warranted the sandwiching of such a lengthy mid-season break. Feel like they've lost a lot of momentum by tearing up the foundations of Woodberry. The Governor retaining any decent army seems quite unbelievable at this point, even in this world of endemic-zombie-ism. Let alone an army good enough to make a decent go of a prison.

Not sure where they're going with this, or where I want them to go.

Also, Glen is being a bitch.

Argh the show we love to hate :lol:

The s*** shooting, man :lol: :lol: Hate when that happens in films/shows, man. Just endless bullets spewed out hitting f***ing nothing. In the episode the zombies were all slow-mo again, apparently - incapable of running. Yet the Guv'nor and his troop of three people decide to back off just when they have the strategic advantage in their can't-hit-s*** shoot-out.

Rick should be especially disappointed. No one knew where the f*** he was, yet he ballsed up his first shot. His first shot should have been a kill-shot. Shane would've nailed that s***. Then he would have dug up Lori and-... anyway. Needs more action scenes for the rest of the season, because the rest of the show is falling on it's ass atm.

Also, Lori in white. White, really?

And there's no way they can be that afraid of killing those zombies just lumbering around in the yard now. If the writers make that a bigger issue (how do like 100 zombies fit in that truck?) then it'll drive me even more mad, considering how easily these guys are killing these lazy ass zombies.

It's a girl. She's not a zombie. She wants to win the affection of/protect the Guv'nor. They'll shoehorn something around it, I'm sure.

That's the point though. The Walking Dead as a title was supposed to mean the people alive were the walking dead not the zombies, i'm sure I read Robert Kirkman saying that somewhere.

I think the Governor was just f***ing with them leaving after attacking, but it is a bit stupid really. The whole thing seem a bit daft really, I mean the guy shooting at Rick, why did he just leave Rick when he ran out in the open to run away from the zombies? Also why did the Governor seemingly ignore Rick who is clearly the leader and the most dangerous in the group? Did the Governor also drive past Glenn on his way out? Why wouldn't they take advantage there and just kill him as well? :lol:

Merle and Daryl getting to the Prison in next to no time was s*** as well. The episode was again mediocre up until the last few minutes which just added a bit of excitement if nothing else. It'll no doubt pick up and get back to how good it was earlier in the season soon though.

Just caught up and this seriously pisses me off so much :lol:

Why do directors think it's a good idea? It adds nothing to the scene what-so-ever, it's not tense and it's not believable. The Governor just standing there too, f*** off man :lol:

They somehow have a big problem with dealing with 20 or so zombies sparsely layed out in a massive field too, Michonne alone could take them out with her sword. Then there's crazy Rick, ergh, pack it in man and get yourself some sleep or summik.

The first half of the series was great, so far this half has been appalling, everything about it has been s***.

I hope so. I'm sure fans of the comic series are looking at what we hope and laugh.

I guess the fact they know so much about the walkers, they are very predictable now. Shoot in head, make sure to burn the bodies, etc. Makes sense I guess. Walkers aren't unpredictable like humans ie: the attack last weekend on the prison.

Such a fantastic premise for a show, and finally a zombie show that is a weekly one with gore, violence, etc - and I still find myself enjoying, but not as much as I could. If we all put our minds to creating a concept, it would be scary as f*** man. I'd give the zombies the power to run like the infected living in 28 days/weeks later and scare the living crap out of us.

I know myself, Beren, Cuba and Hans critique the f*** out of this show...but I still enjoy it, i promise. :lol:

Yeah I enjoy it still, it just irritates me knowing it could be a load better if they would just stick to a few simple rules :lol:

If I've watched Michonne decapitate a dozen zombies in 10 seconds then I don't believe that her, Rick & Daryl would have any trouble with the small hoard that has made its way into the prison yard. It may be small but I think it's pretty important in a zombie show, you need to feel like they are genuinely trapped and in constant danger, not just when the writers decide everyone is going to be temporarily deaf whilst a few "walkers" slowly but noisily walk into view.

Title: Re: The Walking Dead - Season Three, Episode Ten (comic stuff in spoilers)
Post by: Kanji on Thursday 21 February 2013, 08:43:47 PM
:lol: Michonne could serioulsy just run out there with Daryl giving arrow cover fire and slice all of those heads; whilst they fix the gate or figure out a way to fix the gate.

Daft question: I know its nasty and they probably prefer to be clean - but haven't they all determined by wearing walker blood on themselves that their human-selves are masked? So wouldn't that be the best way to accomplish s*** not out in the wild?

(I know this is based on a comic, just saying, :lol:)

My own zombie show would be immense - thanks to my co-writers on this board.

They should have explained why the Governor and his men decided to drive off after the walkers were released. Would have been exceptionally easy to pick the group off one by one as they struggled with the walkers - I'm guessing the idea is that the Governor wants a drawn out war due to the death of his daughter, and not to wipe them out. Which would also be the only explanation as to the glaring inconsistency between this ambush scene and the ambush on the small National Guard platoon (or whatever they were) when the soldiers were all killed within a few seconds from pinpoint accurate shooting at range by the Governor's men.

I thought it was better in the sense that it didn't annoy the f*** out of me like the previous episode. The only bit that p*ssed me off was the bit when they smashed a zombie up and put him on a leash :lol: Just seemed stupid.

Anyway aye, the episode seemed to move the story along nicely, it was fairly slow paced and soap opera like but Andrea has finally met the group and both them an the governor seem to finally be prepared for a war; the awkwardness of Merle being back in the gang seems to have been alleviated slightly too which is appreciated, most importantly though a quick bollocking from Big Hersh seems to have magically sorted Rick's decent in retardation, which has potentially saved the show for me, he was doing my f***ing tits in man :lol:

It wasn't a bad episode. It was nice to see Morgan again, but I hate that they spoiled that with the "previously" bit at the start of the episode. I would much rather there were more episodes like this and less with "the group". It get's a bit tedious always seeing the same faces and not a lot of development.

It wasn't a bad episode. It was nice to see Morgan again, but I hate that they spoiled that with the "previously" bit at the start of the episode.

Why do they always do that? They've done that a few times now and it's really irritating.

Another meh episode to be honest, although I can only assume they're trying to build up to a big finale but re-uniting characters with the group.

On the subject of the finale, how many more episodes are left?  I purposely avoid the next episode previews so if it says it on there, apologies.

Only 4 left.

Ah, far more than I expected, guess I'm used to most of these shows having 12-13 episodes!

Hopefully they have enough time to fully develop the inevitable confrontation between the towns and make a good ending, the last few episodes have been a bit lame.

Post by: Beren on Monday 4 March 2013, 11:43:43 PM
I thought episode twelve was pretty good. The ending was particularly good, I thought. Reminds me of the highs of the first season - a bit of directing/writing class.

To my eternal shame, I didn't give my review on episode eleven last week. Turd. It was such unashamed filler, man. It was the television equivalent of Drogba vs Barca where he just rolled around on the grass every five minutes, so brazen in its intentions to fill time that it became quite funny. There was actually nothing of consequence in that episode, not one jot.

Anyway, back to twelve - Morgan hammed it up quite nicely at times. Carl actually had some decent acting moments too - not all of them, but sometimes he's given such corny lines that I question whether even a great child actor could say them with any conviction. More I think about twelve, the more I like it. Don't know the comics storyline, but I'll be glad when they're out of that prison... lot more excitement on the road :pow:

:lol: I have totally different opinions to everyone on this episode :lol:

Thought it was outstanding and the best of this series!

Looked like it was written, directed, and edited by completely different people.

Really enjoyed it unlike the last episode that nearly got me to finally ditch the show (or the one before...Glenn whining in the cell to his lass).

I find the group stuff too claustrophobic, at times.

:thup: Easily one of my favourite episodes in a while.

I thought it was a canny episode too like, loved how it was purely an episode of what happened with them on the road and not the other BS with that one eyed geezer (i cant remember the name of him right now) IMO they need to stop this shannagans with the one eyed geezer and just move onto something better, like why people started turning into zombies in the first place and s***.

It was the first episode in a long time that showed any sort of concrete examples of what type of world they live in now and how humanity has to handle it.  And what I am saying this in reference to is:
Spoiler
[close]

It's that kind of world that they live in now and there hasn't been enough of that kind of stuff shown to highlight that fact.  There was a bit of actual emotion in this episode which was nice too, rather than them being p*ssed off at The Governor and doing a lot of :rant: without any real action.

Post by: Hanshithispantz on Tuesday 5 March 2013, 08:00:49 AM
I thought it was a great episode, certainly the best this half of the series (and possibly even the series as a whole). With none of the prison or Woodbury, and only 4 characters appearing in the episode it was clearly 'filler', but the show is infinitely better when it goes down this route. Half of the episode I spent just looking around Morgan's gaff trying to spot little details. Gutted he didn't go back with them though, his character is one who I actually enjoy watching and listening too, although if he did return he would probably be diluted like the rest of them, moping around or chatting s*** about "Little Ass-Kicker" within half an episode.

Judging by the preview they come face to face with the Governor next week, I wouldn't be adverse to the cast being culled there and then in a shoot-out (hopefully they use real bullets this time) and we move on from this tiresome and predictable story altogether. Rick, Michonne & Daryl* are the only characters who's deaths would annoy me, the rest are fair game.

*Too many of the cast just bring zero to the show, there's only Michonne, Daryl & Rick (when he's not p*ssed talking to trees) who have the bio to be of any use, you could make an argument for his son who is probably needed as a character, Glen if he isn't on, and his lass to add a bit of depth to the group, but the latter 2 could be replaced by anyone or anything. Trim the fat and send them back on the road for the remaining 3-4 episodes! We all know this is going to drag on 'till the very end though.

I thought the Morgan breakdown with Rick was pretty top notch in terms of this show. Agree with Cuba, I do like the portrayal of the world they currently live in with not helping another man, then stealing his bag when he's dead. Brings a sort of realism to the show.

I'm tired of this Woodbury and Prison war, its getting boring by the episode. Get these f***ers back on the road, in search of another camp or something. The writers need to re-energize how useless these walkers are though. Morgan's fortifications were awesome btw. That's how it's done :lol:

It's almost so good, but instead it's s**** :lol: I'm not sure how that's possible, but the show achieves this strange feat.

Highlights:

- Glenn getting his ass whipped by Merle again (:memelol:) and having to get saved by Maggie and a pre-pubescent girl with a gun. Eventually, he's gonna walk in to Maggie giving Karl head and do the :okay: face tbh

- Andrea getting told to f*** off by Rick and the Guv'nor. Finally.

- Daryll and Guv'nor Denchman Dude's little interchanges.

Everything else was fairly bad.

Some of you are talking s**** in my opinion. You only have to go back to halfway through this thread and everyone was praising the show and it's pacing in season three. Now that it's slowed down for a few episodes because it's building up to something massive and everyone is criticising it for being too slow. A 16 episode season can't go gung ho for 16 episodes. If there's no build up, there's no pay off either.

It's still a brilliant show.

I've read the comics.

It veered off the path of the comics in Season 1, when everybody loved it. Shane dies extremely early in the comics, but they kept him alive in the show and everybody praised his character. Merle and Daryl are new characters and are very well received by fans.

Reality is, in season 3 they've stuck VERY close to the comics. Saying that it's veering from the comics as a negative is silly. People are getting bored with the Prison in the TV show already, yet the comics, they were in that prison for three and a half years in real life.

The pay off is going to worth the two or three build up episodes. Personally, I love a bit of build up. I don't see them as filler really.

:lol: I don't think people are just pretending to not like the show.

Anyway I think this episode would have been pretty good had it not been for the fact the show has moved at a snails pace since it started back up again, there's only so much filler I can take. And it is filler, in 3 episodes since the appalling shoot out (135 minutes) what has actually happened? I mean I really appreciated the break from the Prison and Woodbury when they went to collect some guns and meet Morgan, but ultimately, as much as I enjoyed that episode, it's been preceded and succeeded by 2 other episodes where very little has happened also, 3 episodes for the gang to coincidentally find a fucktonne of weapons and meet the Governor. 3 f***ing episodes.

We get it, there's going to be a big fight in the final or penultimate episode! Woo! They've been f***ing building towards it since episode 3 whilst simultaneously making me give less of a s*** about each character as the weeks have passed, maybe that was their plan? Distance me from the cast members before a mass cost cutting cull? Makes about as much sense as turning a zombie apocalypse into a f***ing soap opera I suppose.

We need more zombie dread, man, give us an episode or 2 of the group being mauled by zombie hordes. That's all I ask.

One last point, I think the Governor would be a far better character if he had far less screen time (which would be a bi-product of the show worrying more about the walking dead than some eye-patched radgee overseeing Albert Square), at least I think I would have appreciated his extended meeting with Rick far more, anyway. The actor does a great job but we've seen far too much of him swanning about that place.

I thought plenty happened to be fair. I mean, you know there's going to be a huge fight in the final episode with probable losses, so the episodes leading up to that have to build that up. We've seen Andrea realise she needed to warn the prison and finally choose her side. We seen Tyreese be wary of the Governor, and his thoughts towards the group at the prison which could lead to something more. We seen even more cynicism from the Governor and what he has planned for Michonne should he get her. We seen one of the traps/attacks the Woodbury gang have planned for the ones at the Prison. We seen remorse and a shift in Miltons mentality.

That's off the top of my head. That's quite a bit to happen in a build up episode.

Also Sy, can't disagree more about the casting of the Governor. I think it's excellent casting. Have you read the comics? He's been played perfectly in my opinion. Everything is set in place for the final two episodes. Subtle hints have been given the whole way through this season to show that it's going to stick extremely close to what happens in the comic.

The only thing I think they'll leave out is, (and don't f***ing click if you haven't read the comics):

Andrea momentarily turning into Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce in the field
The samurai zombies in the woods
The 20 minutes we spent in a dark warehouse
Tyreese being an annoying puff
The Guv miraculously escaping from the dozen of so zombies who were effectively sitting on him
The Guv grabbing Andrea as she was waving to rick etc... I could go on

That whole segment could have been done in 30 seconds as Tyreese knocks the daft cow out and grasses her up to The Governor, they then could have spent the remaining 40 minutes doing something a little more productive, like Carol feeding the Lil' Ass Kicker, or Rick talking to trees.

I do like the casting of the Govoner though, like I said last week I just think he's had far too much screen time. We know everything about him which takes away his sinisterness.

Hope the finale is f***ing amazing to make up for the second half of the season.

Is season 4 likely to follow a particular set of comics, or do they just break down the entire comics into seasons?

Well, I thought that was pretty brilliant myself. Even before the actual plot started to progress, the first fifteen minutes were of a higher quality than the filler we've had recently. The dialogue, the acting and the direction was much, much better. Really enjoyed it all.

Very sad to see Merle go - he and Daryl are (or were) the heartbeat about everything good on the show. Michone is pretty badass/good though, actually.

Rick has been a dick for ages. Lori corrupted him with her intense shitness. He's not even a good f***ing shot these days. I like Daryl's little backtalk of "you can't track for s***" :laugh:

Merle's "pied piper" attack was great. Loved his roll out of the car, too.

Glen is still a t***.

Next week looks action-packed, but it'll focus too much on leaving a cliff-hanger. Will be pleasantly surprised if it's better than this week's.

Seriously the first time the Guv looked like a menacing crazy fool and the previews for next week make him look like an even more mental guy. Which was awesome.

Merle as a walker was sad actually, poor Daryl. Hope he f***ing offloads some of the Guv's stupid henchman.

Another 45 minutes wasted, apart from two decent scenes (Merle shooting The Guvernor's people and the first few seconds of Merle vs Daryl at the end).

I'm glad Merle is gone. The "yeah, I'm a bad f***er, and I don't give f***" attitude. Annoying character.

The last episode better be good, because this has been a f***ing s**** season.

I think the season has been far from s**** like. People were singing it's praises in the first half of the season and while the second half wasn't as good, there were still some good episodes, like this week's for example. If you think the entire season has been s**** then maybe you just don't like this show?

Very good episode - some great scenes between Merle/Rick and Merele with Michonne. Disappointing to see him 'turn', but I guess there was nowhere left for him to go.

Really looking forward to the last episode - of course it will end of cliffhanger. Just hope it doesn't disappoint.

It was nice to see Merle have a little bit of redemption, in the fact that he didn't drag Michonne to her death. Hoping that Daryl doesn't get bumped off in the next episode, because that would be a massive mistake.

Still thought there was a fair bit of s**** involved but the scenes with Merle and Michone were great, felt a little like the Morgan episode where they isolated part of the cast to further the development and I noticed in the credits that it was the same writer (and the new showrunner), Scott Gimple. So yeah, was great to see Merle develop more before they f***ing killed him off, w*****s :lol:

Glenn needs to die and Rick needs to sort his priorities out in the finale; if it finishes with the Governor plot unresolved like people are suggesting it can get to f***.

My initial reaction to that is disappointment really, although I'm posting this immediately after watching it without any time given for it to sink in. It was a decent enough episode and had some good talking points, but it just didn't feel like a season finale. I mean season finales in most good shows are usually top class conclusions to an entire seasons worth of story building and it's very rare that the finale isn't one of the best episodes in the season, it wouldn't be in the top 3 for me. It also feels like we're now moving in to another mid season break too with season 4 almost acting like season 3 part 2. I think it was a decent episode, but not great by any means.

:lol: I like that she died and if she'd spent less time talking to Milton she'd have been absolutely fine.

Carl was badass. Great lecture to his increasingly crap dad too.

Really liked the opening before the title credits. The "war" was a little underwhelming to say the least, there was no real fighting, no one really died, there was a lot of A-Team shooting (where you can unload a whole clip of bullets out of an automatic weapon, and no one on the opposing side gets hit) and it just underlined how much stronger the respective two human camps are than the walkers who are verging on redundant at this point.

Walkers are now being used primarily as a weapon by humans in the show, which is weird. A weird mixture of having no cliffhanger, and no resolving the Guv'nor's fate too :lol: Nothing to tantalise you as such for next season, but leaving you with questions also :lol: Achieving the worst of both aims, you could say.

I like the new Carl, I was hoping he'd pistol-whip the snivelling Glen with the butt of his rifle as he walked past, and spit on him, but I can wait a season for that I suppose.

They have LOADS of material which is why it's such a kick in the nuts that they're taking 2 seasons to get through the prison stuff.

Zombies need to start coming in large hordes, the end of season 2 was f***ing awesome due to the large scale of Zombies that attacked the farm. They're pointless when there's only 15ish of them. More herds!

The prior season, a horde of zombies came to the farm via a helicopter/gun shot. That was awesome.

This season we've practically had gun fire all day everyday, some partial gun battle madness and where is the horde of zombies?

f*** sake man, they make such a big deal of killing quietly and they could have a constant horde due to all the damn noise they make.

Unless there's a big blaring sound/light, I'm not sure how zombie hordes get started tbh. They don't seem as individual zombies as though they communicate with one another, why would they all traipse in the same direction in packs/such large numbers?
Title: Re: The Walking Dead - Season Three, Episode 16 (comic stuff in spoilers)
Post by: Kanji on Tuesday 2 April 2013, 12:12:46 AM
No idea, but don't they generally follow sounds? Thats why they try to kill quietly? So if theres a massive gun-fight, wouldn't they travel that way, individually?

Last season they basically followed a massive chopper and then switched direction after they heard a gun shot or something, no?

Don't know, just want some massive zombie hordes man :lol:

Oh yeah. Forgot about the chopper. Was thinking more about the farm bit, I can't remember why the farm got overrun en masse, that's all.

from wiki - at the end of season 2:
Following the trail of a helicopter overhead, a massive herd of walkers begins to form and migrates from the city to the countryside. They come to rest in the woods outside Hershel's farm. The herd follows the sound of a gunshot and discover the survivors' location

When the whole ruckus with the governor started why didn't they just move back to the farm? They had enough guns/ammo/experince to deal with any zombies there.

The term 'walker' is s*** too.

I used to find Carl annoying but ever since he shot Lori, it seems like he's become more of a man, especially how he acted in the last ep by killing that lad.

Daryl for me too.

Top character with the ability to continue to develop.

I also now really like Herschel. wasn't too keen at first, but I feel his character is on an interesting journey, plus the dynamics with him and his daughters provides something of an opporunity for him and the storyline to develop a bit too.

Glenn used to be a top guy...now   :undecided:,bit of a shame to see his character/role in the group diminished somewhat.................. Maggie though :naughty:

All in all a bit of a frustrating season....to say the least. can't wait for season 4  :lol:

All in all was a decent enough series but I think having 16 episodes hurt it. 12 would have given it a good pacing and removed some of the more pointless filler/fluff episodes.
Better than the last series overall I think, but some odd choices in terms of storylines to pull from the comic.
The episode where they meet up with miles in the town was a bit wtf.
They been going for nearly a year or 2 and then just like that they back in they're home town like they just lived next door or something. And having miles stay in the town and not come back with rick was another wtf. Why reintroduce a character from the first series only to drop him back out again? Odd choice.

Still looking forward to next series

Just watched the second half of the season in the last 2 days.

Why the f*** did they not move to Woodbury? The only people left are the Governor and his 2 friends, and it's much more defensible than the prison. Makes literally no sense to ship all the old people and stuff to a prison that's half falling down and has proven to be really quite easy to attack. Mental.

:lol: that was awful, man. There must have been a dozen zombies and a f***ing helicopter on top of that roof for months. Then some bloke gently removes a bottle of wine from a shelf and the f***ing entire building caves in :lol:

Stop it, you know full well the noise of the shelf collapsing got the attention of the Zombies on the roof, they then all walked to the weaker part of the roof, toward the noise. Therefore their combined weight brought the ceiling down. Admittedly the bits where zombies fell through small parts of the roof were a little unrealistic.

You damn heathen :lol:

This show man, I don't even know where to begin....

1) The helicopter scene was always going to be that way :lol: s*** just went down, hilariously.
2) Irish chick on her own, wtf.
3) Tyrese got himself a girl now, awesome.
4) that sick kid who turns into a zombie, I was waiting for someone to get sick and then die out no where, hidden, come back a zombie and hopefully cause some unnecessary havoc within the ranks. Seemed like such a nice kid too :lol:

I thought that was s*** tbh :lol:

Started well when it seemed s*** was going down and then it just went back to The Boring Dead. A few dozen sleep inducing conversations later and they kill off the sexy lass.

They've ruined Daryl too, I swear he was a great, capricious character in the first couple of seasons, and probably the only person of interest outside of Shane, but now he just goes on like a ponse with his s*** hairdo. He proper rims Rick too which is just painful to watch.

Why did Rick continue to violently slaughter a box of piglets when the zombie heard was already merrily following him and the truck away from the fence. It was clearly very distressing for him, as slaughtering a box of piglets with a combat blade would be, but he just kept at it.

Was he not doing it because of the flu going around? I thought that was why he burned the wood from the pen and his shirt. Obviously he decided to use the pigs at the spare of the moment, but I think he was going to kill them anyway? The most ridiculous thing I thought was how the fence was about to collapse, but yet they had time to round up all the pigs into the truck and get out to the walkers without the fence budging even a little bit more? :lol:

Yeah the pigs were presumed to be infected, although they weren't sure. It just seemed weird that he would pointlessly slaughter them once it was apparent that the zombies were following him anyway instead of either killing the pigs humanely, or isolating them until they're sure that they're infected.

Also as they did presume that the pigs were infected why would he handle them? Pig blood was squirting into his eyes at one point :lol:

My favorite show to hate. Haven´t enjoyed an episode from start to finish even once since season 1, yet I still watch it.

This episode, right off the bat - how did that chick not hear the nerd zombie? She had literally put her head on the pillow seconds before he walked past  while growling loudly.

As everyone else had commented on, it would have been incredibly easy to divert the zombies away from the weak point of the fence. Additionally, it wouldn´t have taken long time to kill them all.

Decent first half of the show. Shouldn't have killed new hot girl, there's a desperate shortage.

In addition to a flamethrower, they should surround the fence with the wooden angled spike structures the walkers always seem so keen to impale themselves on.

It makes no sense at all half the time like. Whenever they go into the woods a zombie or two catches them off guard, but when they're in the prison there's 100s of the f***ers coming out of the woods. They're killing s*** loads of them either daily or every few days, what are they doing with the bodies?

My approach to this show is to just not take it seriously. It's so far from the likes of Breaking Bad it's hilarious, but it's good for a bit of casual viewing on Monday.

New hot girl, she was in quite a bit of the last series, well briefly most episodes.

And was the girl sleeping with The Governor when you first saw him (i think). Also the burnt body had her wrist band on, maybe it wasn't her and she was the one feeding the zombies rats.

Interesting, considering she named the other person to be put into quarantine. Is a better theory than there being some over-zealous survivor that was able to kill them both and burn the bodies with no-one noticing. Would be a good way to re-introduce the governor's crew.

Yep, should build more wooden angled spikes or other spike type barricades. You would think the fences would be lined as well.

I wonder if the worms are infected which are in turn infecting the pigs? They keep showing these worms as well.

They've always been lax though, tbh. There's so many of them at the prison, the perimeter isn't that big, if they had a better rota and killed them instantly/not allow build up, their fences would be fine.

You could kill 6 a minute without much bother, and unless they've got Basement Jaxx pumping out of the megaphone yards I doubt that many walkers would come to the fence that quickly.

They've written themselves into a corner by making the zombies so weak, noisy and slow, and giving the group access to an armory. Not having to worry about blood spatter or scratches is daft too.

They should be running away from them and keeping as much of a distance as possible, not walking through crowds of them jabbing them through the cranium with f***ing screw drivers. There's just no sense of dread, which leads to them having to write in some ridiculous s*** like the sneaky geek who nobody hears for about 6 hours as he's clattering down the cell block howling, or the preying mantis zombie that latched onto Big Hersh.

Are we to believe the horde of zombies are heading directly to the prison?

Well if we believe the road they were on went a straight line to it, they may have taken a turn somewhere like......amazing as that sounds :lol:

The horde thing bugs me, why only use (twice now ?) it so sparingly when it's a great thing.

This show has so much going for it, but it's wasting some many golden opportunities to be brilliant. I still love it mind.

No mention of The Governer at all so far...

The franchise became completely unrealistic as soon as you could see perfectly mowed lawns some months into the end of civilization :lol:

The squashing of heads as if they're putty is ridiculous. But they'd argue it's the symptom of decomposed creatures. But surely bone doesn't decompose that way? So easy to 'push' a blunt object through their craniums yet you can't just bat them off when they're crowding you.

The program is rammed with inconsistencies and contradictions.

I've resigned to the zombies being ridiculous and I'm trying to get into the story. It's like our club...dished up with so much lameness that the good bits feel far sweeter.

It's stupid...but so are zombies.

Being able to bite through jeans and 3 layers of clothing. Really? Go on try biting your jeans, impossible to get through but the weakened decayed zombie with no bone strength in his head has cast iron jaws with razor sharp teeth that makes jaws the shark look like your granddad trying to eat an apple without his dentures in.

Total bollocks. They needed a zombie plan, and stick with it, any changes explained to f*** with science n s*** not just because it suits a storyline and dragged out tired old action scene.

Yeah they do, but D'Angelo didn't take any, he just took the booze for himself when he could have been carrying more meds. It's stupid like, there's no reason why he couldn't have taken some as well as the booze.

When Daryl was sat in the car near the end of the episode, you could hear Michonne and Tyreese discussing which route to go back on and how long it would take, (about 8 hours and they would need more gas along the way). Guess that was a route avoiding the horde.

The show is f***ing s**** at the minute, man :lol:

I cannot see why anyone is bothered about people moaning on about it in a (usually) tough in cheek manner.

I enjoyed season 1, the latter half of season 2 and the first half of season 3 with a few other episodes from beyond that here and there, like the one where they met Morgan. And since I've spent 3 seasons on it already I might as well see where it goes as I cannot be arsed to get into another show. At the minute though, aye, it's f***ing boring which means most people are getting more enjoyment laughing at it than they are actually watching it, hopefully once s*** actually happens and they're forced out of the prison that changes.

Part of why I like this show is my deep down sense that they'll battle some horde-like zombies and s*** will get crazy again. The concept of this show in Season 1 was insane, insane.  This show lost a ton with me when the walkers became props if they aren't in numbers. Nobody seems afraid of them unless they are caught off guard or there are 50 of them.

One of the main reasons I still love/hate this show is the above from Hans, its absolutely enjoyable to hear everyone's reactions and Bull s*** about it. All fun & games.

The pilot is probably 2nd to THAT episode of Breaking Bad on my list of greatest TV series episodes like, that I can remember anyway. I loved it. Really like the the season 1 Finale too. Then they started stretching 45 minute scripts over 2-3 episodes and it just got silly. I do enjoy a slow build-up to something big happening but the script has to be engaging. You cannot just have a load of melodrama between a bunch of characters nobody could give a s*** about.

Still ended up skipping about two thirds of it though. One of the worst things about this show is they've made all the characters ridiculously unlikeable so when you end up with an episode with someone in peril (like Glenn in this episode) you don't actually give a s*** whether they live or die :lol: That and when they introduce a character to have them die the same episode, it has no impact what so ever.

I haven't read the comics but I think Lilly is a major character in those(?) and they introduced her fairly well. I'll just have to blank out the ridiculousness of it, like the Governor meandering about like Forrest Gump sidestepping onrushing zombies.

It's funny how much the quality improves when it's just the Governor and Rick and co aren't involved. It's almost like the main characters are passed their use by date.

Next week's episode looks great, but they have got to give us the conclusion to the Governor stuff now, I mean how many more stand offs do we need? It'll also be the third season finale (if you include that mid-season finale bollocks) that we've seen on this storyline, so it's got to be enough.

Nothing in that episode made any sense to me like. Why didn't he just fix the leak? What was the purpose of that leak anyway? What happened with the packing up and urgently leaving when the next morning they were just back at camp?

I don't think I'm used to the show moving at a decent pace, half of the episode not consisting of melodramatic nonsense seems to have thrown me off guard.

For a moment there, it looked as though the antagonist of The Walking Dead's fourth season might be pneumonia. The camp had successfully integrated the Woodbury survivors and was finally beginning to make progress in their penitentiary refuge when questionable farming practices unleashed a minor contagion to complement the full-blown plague outside the prison walls. The infected could ride out the virus itself, the characters decided, if only they had enough antibiotics to keep the symptoms from suffocating them to death. So out go the camp heavyweights, scavenging for whatever pharmaceuticals they can find, unless Dr. Bob stumbles upon a bottle of Dewers first, in which case… yawn.

Not that I was at all nostalgic for season three. The Woodbury plot started out promising, but dragged on entirely too long, and without the sinew needed to hold it together. Yet, what the show needed least of all was more fetch plots: characters running to point A, only to find that they can’t get what they came for until they’ve sidetracked to point B, then back to A, and so on. That was a mainstay of season 1, and I had no enthusiasm for a reprise.

Leading up to this year’s mid-season finale, though, the show wrapped up the virus plot with merciful dispatch and followed with a two-episode detour that counter-intuitively reasserted a potential for greatness with which the show has long flirted, but rarely attained.
Two of the aforementioned heavyweights, plus Dr. Bob.

That may seem an odd thing to say. After all, The Walking Dead is AMC’s most popular show. This season’s premiere drew in more than 16 million viewers, more than the combined peak ratings for Mad Men and Breaking Bad. Like those prestige shows, The Walking Dead is marked by fine acting, a mostly consistent tone, and benchmark production values that rival its premium cable competition. It even outdoes most recent big budget horror movies with its inventive treatment of the titular Walkers’ grossly pliable bodies, for which the show has won its only two Emmys.

What makes The Walking Dead perhaps the most consistently frustrating show on prime time are the nuts and bolts of its storytelling. The plots—like season 2’s doomed search for Sophia—work best when you take the long view, but the narrative beats from which they’re composed are often clunky and disjointed. Getting from plot-point to plot-point often requires characters to behave erratically. Psychological change happens suddenly, with precious little development.

That, in part, explains why the post-episode discussions in The Talking Dead are so critical to the show’s success. Buoyed up by Chris Hardwick’s dauntless enthusiasm for all things nerd, they encourage viewers to retell the story to themselves. That lets them dwell on the high points, suture together the connective tissue of the overarching plots, and fill in the show’s psychological ambiguities to their own satisfaction.

If all that fails to sell the shifts the writers need in order to progress the plot, there’s always a final resort in the extremity of the situation. If a character’s behavior doesn’t quite square with how we’ve understood them up to that point, well, the apocalypse makes everyone a tad unpredictable, now doesn’t it?

Or does it? It’s so far outside the bounds of common experience that we don’t really know. Every time the story relies on apocalyptic stress to change a character, it makes it a little harder relate. That might not have been a problem except that so much of The Walking Dead is about how people relate (or don’t relate) to one another. Its central conceit is not so much the bodies milling about the landscape, as the premise that, stripped of the civilizing crutches of modernity, we’re forced to struggle against ourselves if we want to remain connected to people. That struggle grows a little harder to believe every time the audience can’t quite make sense of a sudden change of mind or left-field resolution.

Which is precisely why the two most recent episodes—“Live Bait” and, to a lesser extent, “Dead Weight”—took me so much by surprise. By the 2nd half of season 3, I had begun to find the Governor more tiresome than compelling. It’s easy enough to imagine how a leader faced with a constant state of emergency would develop a markedly draconian bent, but the more grotesque turns in his character never really added up.

How, for example, were we to square his disdain for the “Biters” with the literally closeted devotion he showed to his reanimated daughter? Wind-down periods with a glass of Scotch and a wall of Biter heads suggested that he was simply deranged: a plausible explanation, but one that turned him into a mustache-twirling caricature, rather than a three-dimensional foil. There’s nothing inherently wrong with a two-dimensional character—the novelist E.M. Forester argued that a well-constructed plot could hardly move without them—but the point is to let them do their job, then usher them back out again. The Governor never quite managed a third dimension, yet the show stubbornly refused to kill him.
Might be time for a change.

He first resurfaced at the end of episode 5 (“Internment”), the camera pulling back on a peaceful father-son moment to show him watching from the woods. I was nonplussed, but the next episode betrayed the expectation set by that menacing reappearance. Right away, it set itself to the task of stripping him down to nothing. By the title sequence, he was ready to start working on that third dimension.

Broadly, “Live Bait” is structured as though its central plot were about the Governor were building a new family, but it’s more effective as the story of a man rebuilding himself. Its very much a bottle episode, honing in on a single character and a self-contained plot to the exclusion of nearly every other plotline the show has followed up to this point. That narrowness of focus is very much to its advantage. Its new setting (an apartment building occupied by a family that’s sheltered itself to the point of obliviousness) allows the episode to recapitulate the essential horror of the situation. In one scene, the Governor (now calling himself Brian) searches an apartment for a backgammon set, only to discover its previous tenant in the bathtub, still biting after a badly botched suicide attempt. Barely a threat at all, the ghoul invites us to reconnect the Biters to people as they were before the world fell apart and their mundane lives were shattered.

More importantly, though, the episode makes Brian relatable. In rapid order, he goes from being the impenetrable villain of season 3, to a man reawakening to himself after (literal) months and (figurative) years of wandering. Asked what he’s been up to since the Biter outbreak, he says, “Surviving,” as though Woodbury were just another struggle to get to where he is now. By giving a false name, he’s disavowing an identity that was—let’s be honest—gratuitous.

Remarkably, that transition works, not least of all, perhaps, because what we’ve seen of his past has, for us, the same nightmare quality that it’s supposed to have for him. It works, moreover, as its own story, and I found myself more involved than in any plotline the show has offered so far. The story of a tyrant becoming a man, of a monster becoming relatable: it’s a good story. Good enough, in fact, that we could leave the other camp to their prison base and follow Brian for a while; maybe even indefinitely.

For better or worse, though, the show is anchored to Rick Grimes’ uncertain band of survivors, and “Dead Weight” began the work of dovetailing the two plots back together. That episode begins with the Governor’s former lieutenant Martinez pulling Brian and his surrogate daughter, Meghan, from one of the mass grave-style pits they used to trap Biters outside Woodbury. That image prefigures the resurrection of the Governor identity, but for a while, at least, you could almost believe that the episode was about Brian overcoming the pull of his draconian past.

That’s the plot suggested by another pre-title image, Brian teaching Meghan chess while he hangs laundry on a line strung between a camper and a tank. The tension that presents—between the makeshift home life on one hand, and the protectiveness run amok on the other—is far more resonant that the Governor’s rebirth from the Biter pit. In terms of plot, though, its real significance was not the internal struggle—by the end of the episode, that would already largely be decided. Rather, as preview scenes from the mid-season finale suggest, the real point was the introduction of that tank, which the reborn Governor can now use to threaten the Grimes camp.

Thus begins the rapid unravelling of everything “Live Bait” achieved. The Governor may have updated his motive, but the months of wandering haven’t taught him any new methods. Martinez wants to “share the crown,” but that’s not how dictatorships work. Nor is he the strongest arm in the camp anymore, what with a tank driver among their ranks. Competition is eliminated; new alliances are formed. The Governor even finds time to start a new aquarium at the bottom of the lake. Unless you’re willing to content yourself with a deranged villain, the steps that get us to this point don’t really parse, but that doesn’t matter so long as the plot keeps rolling.

Once again, the show is playing chess with the characters’ personalities to orchestrate a dramatic confrontation. That likely won’t hurt its ratings: there are, after all, too many appealing elements to let a false start like that dissuade viewers. For almost two full episodes, though, The Walking Dead revealed the character-driven kind of show it might have been, and it was good.

For a moment there, it looked as though the antagonist of The Walking Dead's fourth season might be pneumonia. The camp had successfully integrated the Woodbury survivors and was finally beginning to make progress in their penitentiary refuge when questionable farming practices unleashed a minor contagion to complement the full-blown plague outside the prison walls. The infected could ride out the virus itself, the characters decided, if only they had enough antibiotics to keep the symptoms from suffocating them to death. So out go the camp heavyweights, scavenging for whatever pharmaceuticals they can find, unless Dr. Bob stumbles upon a bottle of Dewers first, in which case… yawn.

Michone took her sweet f***ing time. Rick got beat down, and should no longer be the poster boy for the show. That honour belongs to Daryll.

Way i see it the fact you dont actually see him die is more so you watch Lily execute him. Just like the Guv did with her bairn she calmly walked over and repaid the favour so we see his death sort of from his eyes as opposed to watching the gore.

I think they're quite different seeing as some characters in the TV show aren't in the comics. The TV show uses the story lines of the comic as a base but most of it differs quite a bit imo.

Pretty sure the baby will be dead.  Now they've got to go on the run again, it's quite convenient that the two characters that would slow them down the most (Herschel and the baby) won't be there.

The f***ing baby better be dead.

Unless Walkers have suddenly developed a taste for takeaway then shes blatently alive. No doubt with Lily or her sister who decided to stop shooting and just walk away i the middle of it all.

Then who left the pool of blood in the cot thing?

Could be anything. Somebody shot near the cot? Never in four seasons of this do i remember any walker ever picking up something and walking off with it, they just hit the deck and start chewing. Not even any bones, gut or anything there. They wouldnt eat every bit of the baby, clothes and all :lol:
Aye true. BUT they might have thought it would be a bit strong to show a devoured infant on cable TV :lol:

She probably is still alive like.

They do this with a lot of US shows shown in the UK, showing it the day after its US showing. The Walking Dead is one of the few that didn't up to now. Probably a bit of that and what you said.

I thought it was pretty s*** and I normally stick up for the show and don't mind the slow burners.  Seems ridiculous that we had to wait 2-3 months for this let down.  Zombies, sorry walkers.  Really are just a joke now :lol:  Michonne just wipes out about 30 of them in a blink of an eye.  Even little Carl just strolls around not fearing them. 

Hopefully next week will be better.  I like that they're back on the road, showing a bit more of the world.  As oppose to just sitting in that prison for 2 seasons.  But there needs to be a lot less Carl.  He is such an irritating little w*****.

that was not a good episode like, why is he confident as f*** one minute popping heads in a zombie fuckfest at the prison and the next second tripping over blades of glass and shooting into the roof?

aside from how awful all of the characters and relationships are this is the worst part, the zombies are made of f***ing paper, carl should have just picked up a magazine and stoved it's head in

did anyone notice the bit at the start with daryl and the anonymous blonde lass running about?  she got grabbed from behind by the zombie, BEHIND, daryl couldn't shoot so dropped his crossbow then fell over trying to help her, got back up and they managed to kill the zombie

in all that time the lass wasn't holding it it off, it just held her shoulders at arms length not bothering to bite her :lol:

they're not even trying anymore man

I still love this for some reason.  But it is starting to get a bit ridiculous now.  Even for a zombie show.  This week's was much better than that shower of s**** last week.  But I still had quite a few gripes.

The two guys fighting the zombies when Tyrese shows up.  It was like a really badly choreographed dance scene.  Just batting them away gently with their baseball bats.  The stealth zombies as well, that just creep up behind you.  Like the guy stood still looking at Tyrese and one bowls up behind him and rips a chunk out his neck.  Your head would be on a f***ing swivel man!!  You'd never stand still. 

The bit with Glen and also the scene Mojo mentions above were just stupid as well. 

I know these types of shows will always have flaws and hugely unrealistic parts.  It comes with the subject matter.  But FFS, sort some of this s*** out!

At least it looks like it might actually become interesting and there will be a real threat to the group now.  Other humans seem to be the only menacing thing left in Walking Dead world.  As the zombies sure aren't  :lol:

There's some really simple, avoidable stuff they're messing up. I guess they're shooting on a low budget and their target demographic will eat it up, no matter what. One take and it's in the can, no sense check/review process to see if it doesn't look horrendously contrived.

I really thought they had finally got it right this season.  I didn't mind the majority of the first 8 and most were pretty good.  Now, it seems like they have run out of ideas, the acting has gradually got worse and they're dragging out about 30 minutes worth of worthwhile footage over 4 episodes.  Why do they need to keep switching storylines?  Why are the zombies so s***?  Why has it become so rubbish? 

I didn't get all the hate it got for quite a while TBH.  Other people I speak to about the show like it and on another Toon forum I use, the general consensus is very different.  I felt people were just jumping on the bandwagon, nitpicking and expecting it to be some masterpiece like Boardwalk Empire or The Sopranos.  However, the last 4 episodes have been pretty indefensible.  It has been f***ing dreadful.

Exactly what I thought after the end of episode.  Next week it looks like more aimless wandering around.  This time following Tyrese again.  So I am assume the week after will be back to Glen and the mullet 'scientist' guy, with a bit of Rick crying about stuff.  Then, the last episode will be a bit of a cliff hanger, with them all meeting up at this Terminus place, then I'll suddenly look forward to the next season.  Despite knowing full well the show has gone to s***.

I was really looking forward to them being all split up and back out on the road.  But this has been awful.  It just seems like they have run out of ideas (despite it being based on the comics) and they have deliberately just hung out about 2 episodes worth of action, over 8 eps  :huff:

I know a lot were saying this 2 seasons ago.  But WTF has happened to this show?!  This week was a bit better, but what has happened to Daryll FFS?  That irritating blonde bird has corrupted him.

To those who have read the graphic novels, why haven't they just followed the story as laid out in the novels? Is it too unrealistic or too graphic for mainstream TV?

They are following it loosely but they can't stay in the same location for the TV show as they could in the comics. For example, they were in the prison for almost 4 years real time in the comics. First episode of the prison was Sept. 2004 and they didn't get out of it until 2008 sometime.

They have started the next arc of the comics with some of the group meeting Abraham, Rosita and the scientist (Eugene). I'm not sure how close they'll follow that though and there isn't enough material there to keep it going for any longer than a season of TV.

The next bit in the comics after that is probably too similar to the prison and I don't think they'll do it on TV so they'll write their own storyline from there. At the rate they're going they'll catch the comics completely within 3 seasons max anyway.

There are a lot of gruesome death scenes in the comic but they could just dumb it down a little IMO.

No. Terminus is exclusive to the show. It'll probably end up in a shoot-out once Rick and Daryls new group get there, since they're looking for Rick to get revenge for him killing Lou.

It was a good episode I thought. A lot of the story coming together. If the finale is top notch this season could stretch a 5 or 6 rating from me.

Honestly man, if you had asked me that before the episode I'd have said yes, that it wouldn't be so bad as to put me off it completely. I'm really contemplating it now though. That was absolutely f***ing dreadful. It used a few scenes and lines from the comic which might keep some people happy but other than that it was awful.

The whole thing was some character development for Rick, which could have been done in five minutes. I'm so annoyed.

I'll continue to watch it. There's no point even saying I won't. The worst thing about it is I can't even blame you for it.

Meh.

I liked the final scene in the train. Although Rick spoilt it with the last line like.

'They're screwing with the wrong people.'

Howay, drop the f-bomb. It would have been alot more powerful had he said 'Who they're f***ing with'.

That line is from the comics, and it is "who they're f***ing with." AMC obviously didn't allow it.

I wish it was an HBO show. f***.

Also, I've already forgot what happened to carol and tyreese? Are they still en route to Terminus? I guess that's their way out.

I'll keep watching. Will be interesting how they play it out compared to the comic considering how vastly different the set up was. The comic had a decent pay off if I remember rightly with Dale.

I reckon no-one will die and it'll look like it's setting up for a big climax which won't actually happen until halfway through season five.

:thup: by the way. I didn't think they'd have the nerve to end use the finale as a set up episode.

I was joking too.  Can't believe they've done it again. :lol:

I thought it was OK up to a point - Rick going hardcore on the group Darryl was with was pretty good. Disappointing to not find out more about Terminus and what they are doing, though I swear I did see some human bones in the enclosure at one point. Just gonna have to wait until October now to see what happens.

tbh, it was terrible four years ago. Respect for sticking with this nonsense for so long. I jumped out of the plane shortly after takeoff.

I hate to admit it, but Mike is pretty much bang on. Although I'd argue it was decent up until towards the end of season 2. The second Shane got popped, it's just being begging to be put out of its misery. I read up on some of the comic storylines - some of them seem vaguely interesting, but for the most part even that is meandering nothingness to pass the time in their boring ass world. There's no overarching direction. It's a pile of w***.

Glad I hopped off the train a few episodes ago. I really feel like I've made the most of the three hours and ten minutes or whatever it is that I've gained back. :)

Yep i saw those, looked like a big pile of rib cages. Ending was a bit crappy for a finale but it looks like rick might finally become a bit of a badass. Also noticed Tyrone was'nt at the terminus yet either. Looks like sgt abraham ford could become a good character in the next series aswell.

It was a decent episode compared to some of the recent dross, but it wasn't a finale.  Season 3 and the first half of season 4 should have been condensed, with the Governer's final attack on the prison being the actual finale of season 3.   Season 4 should have been them all fleeing the prison, with this finale as its halfway point.

The first 2 episodes of the new half season have been hilariously bad like :lol:

It's baffling how after all this time they can still be making the same mistakes. Glenn looks like he's had some kind of allergic reaction too, his face is very bloated now for some reason.

EDIT: Why is every person the group bump into always in some deeply perilous situation seconds away from death? The never see anyone for months, and then when they do the person dies in some hilariously lackadaisical manner.

Right lads, I have a question.

Been catching up on the most recent eight episodes. Watched four so far, Daryl and the blonde one whose name escapes me just had some moonshine and got emotional while the gayest song I've ever heard played over the closing scene.

I'm considering giving the show up right here, right now.

Seriously, what a bag of w*** that episode was.

Without spoiling things, could someone tell me if this is worth sticking with? I love the concept of the show but it's gotten so s*** and these last four episodes have bored the tits off me. Does this season get any better? Do the graphic novels have some awesome stuff in them that we can expect to see in future seasons.

Is there any reason to keep watching?

This was my (jokey) prediction for the season finale.

I reckon no-one will die and it'll look like it's setting up for a big climax which won't actually happen until halfway through season five.

It turned out to be pretty accurate.  It doesn't improve, and it'll still be s*** and frustrating for all the same reasons.

Was like the third or fourth I think.

First episode is just Rick until he's in the tank and Glen calls him on the walkie-talkie at the end, I think.

Walking Dead's been a dead man walking almost since the start for me. I can't believe that they've done such a s*** job of a zombie show, especially one where they already had a load of (apparently) good material to start off with. I mean it's really going some to make a zombie show boring, surely if you can't write anything interesting in itself then you just type "Zombie!!!111" and there you go, job done. Appropriately, the best metaphor I can come up with for this show is a zombie, because it just keeps plodding along and you assume that it must be going somewhere, but look for a bit longer and it's clear that it's not going anywhere at all. Oh, and that's not all, it's simply crying out for "Braaaaaaains!! Braaaaaaaaaains!! Braaaaaaaaaaaains..." on the writing team. Ha! Motherfucking zombie metaphor is the best thing about this show for me.

As for watching or not watching, it'll basically depend upon whether I notice it's back on or not, if I miss the first few episodes I doubt I'll bother with it any more.
