* spoilers maybe? *

such a disappointing return episode,

Less crappy side plots - more interesting setting up cool bases/scavenging for cool stuff.

They should make a series about what would jason bourne do in a walking dead situation!

I really hate stupid kids in these situations.

Needs less 'woe is me' bulls*** drama and more zombies eating brains/having their head exploded.
They did have some good hacking scenes though. Way too much of the Mum, the Blondie and the dude having a cry though.

Enjoyed that ep. A few slow parts but the Spoiler:
walking herd scene was tense and the bald zombie in the camper van.
Awesome makeup! Kind of sick of Shane and his drama bulls*** with the Rick's wife.

Spoiler:
The church scene was pretty hilarious (and ironic).]

Also, I found the two monologues by Rick (opening scene and church) to be forced and lame.

Yeah when they called it a herd in the show I had exactly the same thought.
Obviously no-one in this group of survivors has ever watched a zombie movie at all, and that explains why they keep dying.

Less than 50 f*****g meters away (they show the cars between Rick and the horde.) If you cant see a horde of zombies that's over 50 strong coming at you from a greater distance that that, I don't think you should be a sentry. He saw it about the same time as Rick too, why even have an elevated position?

I love the show but for a season opener... was a bit of a let down.

So many illogical things for people to do who have been living in that environment for some time. Too much cry baby woe is me I wanna eat a bullet or kids getting lost drama.

Just go out and spend the episode scavenging cool s*** and a have a few close calls while crackin some zombie skulls. Would have been way better imo.

Also with all the other vehicles just sitting around full of gas... why are they puttering around in some big ass old piece of s*** wagon? (not the RV, the other car) Even if your new fangled computerised car broke, take the battery out and take your pick of the thousands of other cars just sitting around.

What? I enjoyed the first season, since its the only zombie survival series on tv these days (or ever? are there any else that i don't know about!) i've given it the benefit of the doubt.

But really these crappy side/sub plots are just .. stupid? How did they not learn lessons off mad max 2, dawn of the dead remake, 28 days later, where interesting stuff like holding out in a makeshift base was.. cool!

The 'tense' moments you describe are like terrible horror films which use silly situations like 'a killer is in my house lets hide under a bed while he walks around in my room'.

Just such a disappointment that something with so much more potential would go down this route.

what a f*****g annoying episode. what the f*** is wrong with writers these days?

- how the f*** could a horde of zombies creep up on a flat highway with someone on the f*****g roof of the motorhome

- why the F*** are you driving old peice of s*** 2 wheel drive cars when you should be in a f*****g 4wd to be able to drive off the road and on the grass where there is plenty of room

- why the F*** is there a toilet or bed in the motorhome and have they not put a big f*****g plastic water tank in there instead to hold surpluss fuel and water?

- why the f*** would you run AWAY from the group when two zombies are chasing you?

- why the f*** would you fumble around with assembling a gun of which you have no bullets for when a zombie is walking AWAY from the place your hiding

- why the f*** would you open a bottle of water and use almost all of it to bath in while screaming joyiously about finding water? - like seriously WTF?

- why the f*** would you not have spares parts including radiator hoses etc in a big f*****g motor home

- why the f*** would you not have spikes extending from the top of the motor home pointing down on a 20-45deg angle to the ground to stop zombies climbing up onto the top?

- why the f*** wouldnt you have a big f*****g tractor with lawmower attachment at the front without the guard on it so you could just drive through zombies

- why the f*** would zombies group together when their only instinct is to eat

- why the f*** would you stab the zombie ten thousand times spraying blood all over yourself including your eyes and mouth when you already killed it with the first blow

- why the f*** would you let a women spend 30minutes talking to a f*****g statue when your wasting time looking for a lost child in countryside infested by zombies and then f*****g do the same yourself when you elect to be the guy that stays behind to look for the f*****g girl? - HOW F*****G POINTLESS

- why the f*** would you let your f*****g son walk up to a wild deer with antlers the side of a f*****g small vending machine ?


Seriously this f*****g show gives me the absolute s**** but it's the only zombie show on at the moment.

Any f*****g writer with half a clue could write a better zombie show then this and have people watch it simply for the zombies.

We need the guy who wrote "I am legend" to write a zombie tv series.

To top all of this f*****g facepalm bulls*** off... i then went on to watch the next episode of Terra Nova... which was just as f*****g irritating.


WHAT THE F*** IS WRONG WITH TV SHOW WRITERS? ARE THEY F*****G MORONS? DOES NO CHARACTER IN THEIR SHOWS USE ANY COMMON SENSE OR BEHAVE AT ALL LIKE A NORMAL SENSIBLE / EDUCATED PERSON WOULD?

***spoilers for dawn of the dead/walking dead***

Well dawn of the dead was/is a movie about the 's*** they go through just to survive in a f'd up world' - they did some interesting stuff like setting up camp in a shopping centre? Esp the remake where they showed them with time passing by playing golf/chess etc. Crazy ppl trying to hide their infected pregnant partners, facing starvation so having to think about getting food to the other dude accross the rd. Shooting jay leno.

Just soooo much more better idea's than 'o my kids gonna run off and get lost'
which is essentially what happened in walking dead first ep.

Oh they 'explored' that did they? All i saw was some dumbf*** women who didnt go just slash her wrists or run into the mob of zombies and instead chose to b**** on about how she wanted her gun back and couldnt understnad why they wouldnt give it back to her after she displayed signs she was suicidal and crazy after wanting to blow up in a building.

Yeah that was deep s*** man... real deep... that the women would b**** on about not being able to kill herself because she didnt want to kill the old guy but then just not go /slitwrists

While he did indeed go off the deep end, he does have some valid points. Like instead of driving around in a beater thats constantly blowing hoses (it lost one in the first season too) why not pick up a better car amoung the hundreds blocking their way? A lot looked like they still had keys etc in the ignition as well...

People usung a little common sense wouldn't be a bad thing in a show like that either, but I guess without stupid people to make things happen they would actually need some creative writing skills.

I thought having the redneck dude on a stupidly loud harley, when they constantly enforce that Zombies are attracted to loud noises, is also a particuarly stupid move on their part.

Ah its good to know the haters haven't forgot how to hate on this show.
So you have to be a hater to find that first scene ridiculous? I didnt mind the first season and was pleasantly surprised when i noticed season 2 had started... then that s***, christ.

I mean if the zombies had come from the trees, or where their "Sentry" (blind old guy on motorhome) had a blocked line of sight, that might have made some f*****g sense.
If there had been a reason the motorhome door wasnt f*****g locked rather than just complete stupidity.. this goes to a problem i have with terra nova as well, it is this supposedly dangerous environment, death around every corner and no one seems to notice that, despite almost dying every week... "oh s*** that zombie almost got through the door and killed us all! " - one week later, "hmm a bit warm, should open the door to let a breeze in"
On the same topic, the kids, mum goes "stay where i can see you" err how about stay in the f*****g car or at least right next to it where you can get some cover if s*** goes down, especially seeing as how blind every c*** is.

You compare this situation to when their camp was attacked and there was a reason they didnt see the zombies coming, it was night, they were in the middle of the forest.

The jesus s*** is annoying, but i can almost forgive that because its an american show and they seem to give a s*** about that.

Also one second they are running from two zombies, the next in the church its like "hah look at those slow loser zombies, im gonna chop them up one by one"

It's mentioned in the comics that when one walker is near another zombie that's ambling along, it'll walk along with it.

This little group of walkers heading in some random direction pick up more and more walkers and end up being a herd.

So yeah, that's why they call them a herd in the TV show as well.

And the little girl doing a runner as soon as Rick and the 2 walkers were out of sight made the rest of the episode a long boring search for little lost girl in the woods.

Little girl emerges from her hiding place first without waiting for the all clear.

Attracts 2 walkers and runs off into the woods away from the adults that could help her.

Rick is the only one that goes to help her.

Little girl wanders off and gets lost after being saved by Rick.

Distraught mother of little girl places the entire blame on Rick for her lost little girl that ran off.

Right. I understand the fact the show focuses on the "choices people make in a zombie infested world" but a lot of the choices made in this episode were frustratingly stupid.


Oh and Andrea specifically said she didn't want to get torn apart by walkers, it's pretty clear that if she was going to off herself she'd want it to be quick and less painful.

Yeah, I love how the sheriff can just run up to the house. There were no visible gates connecting the fences so there's nothing stopping the zombies from coming in. I watched the opening scene twice to make sure and sure enough there's easy access to the house. Even when he's out on the porch talking to the old man and the camera is looking down the dirt road, there's absolutely nothing to stop anyone entering the property. F*****g retarded. And the house itself doesn't have any protection either.

s**** getting reallllllllll boring - did they fire their old writers or something?

The scenarios in this second season are just mind blowingly uninteresting?

Compared to episodes from the first season i.e handcuffing a crazy redneck bro up on a building in the cbd filled with zombies, meeting another 'hostile' gang, finding a underground lab with an insane guilty scientist.

Getting your boy shot by otis doesn't seem to cut it for me.

Please AMC just use/hire the same writers from breaking bad or something!

It seems the zombies just congregate around built up areas anyway. As a group/herd, they don't seem to move very far from where they were first infected/killed unless it's in one shuffling herd down a highway. Obviously there is the odd one or two meandering through the forest looking muching on woodchucks.

I'd say the few zombies wandering about near a remote farmhouse could easily be picked off with a rifle.

Just sayin...

I would love a show that was about the obstacles that survivors had to overcome in order to live in a post-apocalyptic world.

As pointed out, that's not what this show is. It's all about the inter-character relationships, and that part is sub-neighbours quality. Even the "Previously on The Walking Dead" was filled with that. Piling the standard faux-suspense zombie bulls*** on top of that doesn't make it any better. I think we expect a little bit more from the humans that managed to avoid zombification for this long than dancing toes on an easily blocked door.

yeah, I was pretty bored most of the ep. :/
but I think he mentions in the ep why there're like 0 zombeis around the farm? I think he says that it's cos they're well secluded from the main cities or w/e.

Good to see when they ditched the whole CDC business they're back on track with following the storyline of the comics.
Would have been good to see Wiltshire Estates, but looks like we'll never know now :(

There's one major departure from the comics is s***ting me though, and from the comments it looks like it's s***ting you guys as well...
Spoiler:
Shane should be f*****g dead by now :(

Spoiler:
Hershel's farm hopefully means the prison is coming up soon >:)

Yeh I don't have any major issues with it, shrug. Sure its no HBO show but its watchable (to me).

If you don't like it then not watching it will probably alleviate most of the rage and angst about the show.

The final bit was alright, but the two guys fighting for a minute kind of takes away from the "oh the zombies are right behindness" of the situation, shane should have been colder and just shot him in the leg and walked off without turning around (yeah i know he needed what fatty was carrying)

Oh yeah another moment where shane is "surrounded" then fatty shoots two zombies and he has a clear path, like why didnt shane attempt that at least.

Still, maybe it's getting better.

He wasn't surrounded, he had heaps at his back behind the fence, but only 3 coming at him.
After taking out the 3 (Fatty 2 and Him 1) they both comented on how they were out (or did they say last round?) of ammo....
Then they went and pulled out their Hand Guns.... which soon they also both said that they only had 1 round left.
If you're goig to let him die, and you need his pack. Shoot him in the head, Still fresh meat for the Zombies and 1 less that could come back to life. No fight for his pack.

Liked this one a heap better than #1 and I hope they keep going like this.

Heh, yeah I'm with you Rev.
I dunno whether it's the actor that plays Rick, the directing, when they fired all the writers or a combination of all three.

Rick has a lot of inner turmoil in the comics and one of the recurring themes is how he struggles to keep a tentative grip on his humanity as leader of the group. He's supposed to be the backbone of the series and I'm worried his introspection scenes are going to continue being so emotionally bland all the way through.

Because she couldn't say then as it would take away from the "big reveal" later on in the episode, but the reasoning turned out to be fairly obvious and mundane, and there was no f*****g logical reason why the chick couldnt have told asian dude earlier, except to artificially build tension.

in the mean time, fringe, boardwalk empire and terra nova(only just) can suffice. terra nova has a short life expectancy imo unless it becomes good though.

There are entire episodes of Terra Nova where you don't even HEAR a dinosaur.

Really enjoying the season so far.

I wont spoiler this since the main reveal has already been mentioned above, but my partner pointed out a rather odd plothole.
The main cast are on the farm looking for a girl they've lost a few days ago. The farm folk must have found the girl sometime in the last few days and stuck her in the barn - wouldnt they maybe put two and two together and think "hey maybe thats the girl they're looking for?"

Maybe, but they've had several discussions where the farm owner has said I want you to find that girl and then move on. Its also clear he wants them gone ASAP.

I guess we have to accept that the farm folk are dumbasses and didnt realise they already captured her; the only other explanation would be that they were aware Sophia was in the barn and it was all an elaborate ruse designed to avoid revealing the barn's contents, while simply waiting for them to give up on finding Sophia and leaving.

Yeah, that was explained in the after show. Two things conspired there:
1) They didn't want to reveal there were dead people in the barn, as has already been mentioned
2) Hershel has a line when they're hauling zombie out of the swamp "Otis used to do this, but now we have to". Otis went off on a mission quickly to get supplies for Carl and got killed before there was any mention that they were looking for Sophia so he didn't have a chance to tell anybody that the little girl he snared a few days ago might be who they were looking for.

Basically Hershel didn't know that she was in the barn, he was just hoping they'd give up and move on. Even if he knew there had to be some chance he didn't want them to know that any walkers were in the barn because he guessed correctly that someone in the group would flip out and massacre them.

Agreed. I never open a thread about a currently running TV show (or movie) until i have seen the latest ep.

Anyone who does should expect to see spoilers.

Or are we supposed to use spoilers until we have asked every member of the forum and made sure everyone has seen the latest ep?

As for the episode, loved the ending. About time people in their group said what they think and took action instead of keeping secrets and treading on egg-shells. Also glad they resolved the little girl thing, even if it was a bit sad.

wrong, spoilers only go on things that HAVEN'T aired. if you don't get this right, people will spoiler things that have and haven't aired, and then it's really easy to mistakenly read something that you shouldn't.

The point is, ANYTHING THAT HAS AIRED IS FAIR GAME, if you haven't watched the latest ep, don't read the thread.

technically none of the walking dead has Aired in Australia.

It not a general rule more of common courtesy.
There is a difference between accidentally letting something slip and revealing what many would deem an important plot element of the series so far.

I am for one with -"don't Read the thread about a current TV show until you have scene the latest episode.

Still loving this show, only recently caught up to date and yeah the end of episode 7 was f*****g awesome. Though, I didn't assume they had captured the girl as a zombie and knew about her, I figured she had found the barn while she was running away and went in there to hide thinking it would be safe then got f***ed up by the zombies inside.

Also what was going on with the stupid mum in this episode, sheriff goes looking for old guy, five minutes later she goes to redneck desperate for him to go after sheriff and then she drives off by herself.

This show seems so schizophrenic, they have bulls*** like that just bad writing used to artificially create drama, then they have s*** like the end of episode 7 and 8.

Was that girl who's gone unconscious bitten? Cos nobody even seemed to be considering that, but isn't the whole fever thing and going weak the symptoms of it? I would have thought one of the people there would have at least considered it since they just had to wrestle her away from a zombie that was trying to bite her.

It's not even that though. It's the script. It's just so painful to listen to. Even stuff like The OC and Modern Family is infinitely more interesting. They need to stop moping around and get on with stuff. If I was in charge things would be different.

There is a lot of Drama, too much for me at times as well. But compared to some of the s*** you watch Rev, there's hardly any at all.

The only thing I get annoyed at is how stupid the characters seem to be. I know it's already a bad situation, but some of the decisions these people make show them to be more brain dead than the Zombies.

How do you find the wow storyline rev?

I don't care about WoW's story now. I just play thru to see the new areas and to gear up. I don't even read the quest log. I just grab the quests and head to where I have to. But...that's just a game and my enjoyment comes from seeing new things and collecting gear.

TV shows are different. I'm sitting back watching things unfold. I have no power over what happens so I expect to be entertained. The Walking Dead script wastes too much time on infighting when they should be on the move escaping zombies. Not arsing around on a farm.

But getting back to WoW. The story has been quite good up until Cataclysm. So Blizzard has done a pretty good job of keeping me intertained. But I have a feeling your question is more aimed at Cata which has been disappointing lore wise.

Ok. I love zombie movies. So when this came along I was hoping this would be awesome. How could it fail? It has zombies and it has action. And then it turns into Days Of Our Lives, with zombies.

If anyone here grew up in the 80's. You would have seen all the awesome zombie movies. Even the Dawn of the Dead one just recently and the leser Resident Evil flicks.

Seriously, no one gives a s*** about the Days of Our Lives version. We want action. I could easily go thru the cast and pick at least 5 people who shouldn't be there just to get the story moving along. I can't believe you guys think this is exciting with the amount of downtime this show has. Put me in charge for 2 eps. I'll show you zombies and survival. Not this namby pamby s*** we're seeing now. Seriously, if you think this is exciting, you need to watch other shows.

I'd say it's because you (and people that think the show needs more zombie action) are complaining about the wrong thing.

You seem to have expected a zombie action TV series, which it isn't. It's a TV show based on a comic that deals with how everyday life was changed by a zombie apocalypse.

The ending of Episode 8 for example, while it might be good to see other living people, it'd be naive to blindly trust 2 randoms that could easily just murder everyone and take what you have.

The show pretty much is Days of Our Lives with Zombies, don't expect it to be anything different from the comic.

I agree they made some characters really stupid and the writing is a little off (Lori flipping the car to go look for Frank for no apparent reason).

Shane has been a font of irrational entertainment though.

I think what people aren't taking into account, is the amount of trouble that the show has gone through behind the scenes. First, then-showrunner Frank Darabont sacked a bunch of the S1 writers. Then he himself was let go, after prepping the S2 premiere. The budget has been hacked and slashed to hell.

So if you're wondering why the show seems directionless, and stuck in 2-3 locations with minimal closeup zombie action, you now know why.

Errr, various TV-related news and eZine sites. A lot of "he said she said" around the business of firings and budget, with a lot of damage control refuting most of the claims (but the budget cut is very obvious).

The latest I read was a story about the alleged co-creator of the comic franchise (Tony Moore) suing Robert Kirkman over unpaid royalties (ie. his 50% cut on everything). If it gets nasty (doubtful), then that *may* have an impact on future seasons. (the back end of six episodes for season 2 is already in the can)

Seems the story behind the show has more plot and action than the show itself. Still enjoyable viewing, all the same. :)

Because the Zombie virus reanimates the dead. These guys have been hacking apart Zombies. It stands to reason that they're infected. Therefore when they actually die, through whatever means, their corpse gets reanimated.

Yep, same as in the comic.
Carl kills Shane, Rick and the group bury the body and move on. Later in the story (almost a year) Rick comes back and digs up Shane when they realise you don't need to get bitten to reanimate. Zombie Shane is still twitching so Rick blasts him in the head for good measure.

Hence the title "The Walking Dead". It hasn't got anything to do with the walkers per se, but rather the survivors.

It's worth checking out the comics. Just keep in mind that the TV show is very (very!) loosely based on the comic. Though it is good to see some alignment between the show and the comics now. Hopefully it continues...

It was visible for the camera for the sake of the viewer being able to see.
But if you have ever gone away from the city, in the middle of the night, on a 1/8th moon or no moon at all. You literally cannot see your hand in front of your face it's that dark.

Night in the city due to the lights and moon light actually makes the night you are used to, not exactly accurate per se.
They were in the country I'd say visibility would have been poor.

If anything, ol' mate Rick does the distraught thing fairly well (like the first episode in his abandoned house). Otherwise he's kinda annoying in the way he acts.

Shane's acting is full of annoying ticks. I couldn't really stand watching him.

It's pretty obvious to me. The zombie virus is airborne and thus everyone is infected. But this only means they will become zombies once they die.

What being bit by a zombie etc. does is different. It gives you an infection that kills you a lot quicker. And as you're then dead, the zombie virus kicks in.

The thing that the CDC guy whispered to Rick at the end of season 1 was likely along the lines of "everyone is infected" or some such.

Why is it different? You just said:

Which implies it's already in everyone's system, in everyone's blood. So what "infection" does a zombie's blood/bite contribute if you're already carrying?
It's pretty obvious to me.

Actually it's not obvious since your argument doesn't make much sense.

It's different because Zombies are ripping apparts bits of your flesh and mussle. Causing you trauma and a f***load of bleeding. Thus you die quicker.
BECAUSE YOU'RE BEING EATEN.

(Also, maybe some virus in their filthy disease ridden mouths is what not-so-slowly kills people when they are turned after a bite)

It always makes more sense when they do this with Zombie movies/tv. I have trouble thinking the world would be taken over so easily/quickly if the only way to become a zombie is to be bitten. Pretty sure we could deal with that.

But if people are being attacked and bitten and attacking eachother and getting into accidents and people dying every day of natural causes, then that would explain a much more sudden rise in numbers and the overrun.

I see no problem with that, but the original comment implied the zombie gives you a zombie infection that speeds up dying, rather than full-blown physical disembowlment being the reason you die in under 60 seconds.

I would probably link it to how the common cold occurs. We all have it, but usually when you're run down, weak or exhausted does it have a better chance of actually making you sick, disregarding being spread by people who are already sick.

Yeah to be clear, the thing the zombie's do to you that cause you die quicker is a combination of them tearing you apart or having nasty (non-zombie causing) infections because, you know, they're rotting decayed flesh and all that. Being bit by a zombie means you die quicker because being bit by a dirty, decaying thing might tend to do that to you. And who knows, maybe being infected by the Zombie Virus lowers your immune system in some way too. But the Zombie Virus itself has already infected everyone which is why the guy with the broken neck, those zombie guards at the place that Rick and Shane had a punch up at didn't have marks on them and why Shane zombied out.

EDIT: Also, where the f*** is Tyreese? Are they just not going to have him in the show?

Yeah seriously, lori and carl need to f*****g die already.

Seems like the new showrunners are trying to get the show back to the source material. I think michonne and andrea will run into tyreese, then they'll get to the prison before (FUTURE EVENTS SPOILERS)

Spoiler:
rick and co clear it and find the prisoners


That way they can continue pretty much on track.

Soon as I saw the helicopter I knew it was heading towards finding the prison.

In fact I bet it's the same helicopter that crashes and starts The Governor story line. (which imo has some of the most f***ed up torture scenes i have ever read in a comic)

I thought the finale was great, not sure if I like how Rick is changing, he seems like Shane now. Can't wait for season 3 to start.

I did see him load the gun once and even then the camera cut away so fast he would have only had seconds before the zombies were all over him. But yeah, getting head shots from moving cars was the highlight though. Who would have thought they were crack shooters.

Prolly the best and funniest ep from the whole season.

It was an awesome episode. I was amazed at the amount of shell's Hershel's shotty carried too. Never happens like that in L4D.

So glad to see Shane finally get nailed, knife stylez!

Can't believe Lori/Carl hating on him for killing Shane, WTF!! Also WTF with the peeps all turning on him as leader, where did that come from!?

Looks like it might be getting better, intro credits are still awesome.

Apologies for the thread necro, but it's not quite ready for a new thread:

Tonight, AMC aired a new episode of 'Talking Dead,' which included a bit of goss on the new season, and a teaser clip of Michonne.

A trailer for Season 3 will air soon.

At least we only have to wait till October for more. The gap between 1 & 2 was killer.

You got it in 1, Rav. Wednesday sees the 100th issue of the comic, then it's SDCC Thurs-Sunday. The trailer will be aired during the series premiere of 'Smalltown Security' on Sunday (the 15th).

Right now they're airing the pilot in black and white. (the idea being it more closely emulates the feel of the comic)

Sure hope they have a good explanation for why everyone looks different between seasons, given it looks like they find the prison days/weeks after season 2. :P

Hmmm I was expecting more from Woodsbury unless the trailer is hiding heaps of information.
