The one downside this season is the "actor" who plays Tyrese. Couldn't they have found someone better? It's painful to watch him "act".

I like Carol. She really came a long way like Andrea. She'll be back as soon as Daryl lays pipe with Michonne.

They pass up all kinds of medicines, bandages, and other essentials like soap, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, etc. etc. etc. and they always go grab the one thing they are looking for at that time and then leave. Just frustrating, it is dangerous out there, shouldn't you load up, make multiple trips into the houses, stores, load up, go back. Cuts down on the number of trips you have to make, saves gas, and more importantly gets you the things you need.
I totally agree. These runs are stupid or at least done stupidly. I get it, you are probably time limited thanks to plot-convenient zombies so you can't just back up the truck but you should be able to get a number of things quickly. And I'd be all for picking up as much liquor and wine (the beer's probably all skunked) as well as cigarettes as you have space for. There's not going to be any more made anytime soon, the alcohol has a number of useful properties, and the alcohol and the cigarettes both should have decent trade value.

I think for four seasons now the characters have done stupid things because the writers are bad.

‘Dead’ walk past ‘SNF’ once again
AMC zombie drama finishes as Sunday's No. 1 show
By Bill Cromwell, Media Life Magazine - Nov. 5, 2013

What could have been written off as a programming fluke last week is instead appearing to be more of a trend.

For the second straight week, AMC’s “The Walking Dead” finished as Sunday night’s No. 1 show among adults 18-49, bettering NBC’s “Sunday Night Football.”

“Dead” averaged a 6.8 18-49 rating at 9 p.m., according to Nielsen overnights, even to last week’s rating.

“SNF,” meanwhile, drew a 6.3 in the demo, also flat with last week.

It certainly wasn’t “SNF’s” strongest week. Though the matchup between the 6-2 Indianapolis Colts and 2-6 Houston Texans turned out to be an exciting one, with the Colts coming back to win in the fourth quarter, the Texans have one of the league’s worst records and aren’t a big TV draw.

However, up until last week, even with weak matchups, “SNF” had finished ahead of “Dead.”

“SNF” still finished ahead of the zombie drama among total viewers.

“Dead” is proving to be incredibly potent this season. It’s easily the top show on cable among 18-49s but it’s also the No. 1 scripted series on broadcast or cable.

Sunday’s program averaged 13.3 million total viewers.

The show is also one of the most-buzzed-about TV shows on Twitter.

They spend a lot of time at the prison in the comics. They were barely at the farm (2 books I think) but they spent a lot of time at the prison.


And how dare you speak ill of 'Cutty'!

Especially 151. Way back when I attended a renowned institute of higher learning, we used to light them (flaming shots, they were called) and toss 'em back to impress the females of the species. I remember my buddy once setting his mustache on fire, which was doubly impressive. Ah, good times... tongue.gif

I think if Bob brought back tons of booze, he'd have the share, so that's why he hid.

Anyways, what are they going to do, make damn daiquiris?

I agree that this week's episode was terrific but unlike you I have always thought that Carol was a compelling character. John Lopez said it best in his Grantland piece this week:
Quote:
Even if you don't agree with Carol's stance on preemptive euthanasia, there’s no denying that she has long been one of the most interesting characters on a show whose other headliners can often soliloquize the viewer to sleep. She went from being a helpless victim of domestic abuse to being a grieving mother to being the story-time drill sergeant teaching wide-eyed tweens how best to shiv any zombie punk that came at them in the prison yard.
Indeed! Despite my fondness for Carol, I can't make up my mind whether I agree with Rick's decision to banish her.

Also, like Lopez, I think that Chad L. Coleman, who plays Tyreese, has been excellent.

Regardless of her interesting evolution, she crossed the line by shivving people that were still alive. I don't have a problem with Rick's banishment of her, just mildly surprised that he wanted to get back into the leadership game.

OK... now we're talking, 151 is the good stuff!
post #4875 of 6194
After reading the last week's worth of posts- the consensus seems to be most would like to see the group leave the prison and get out on the road again.
So say we all??

I liked episode four.

I'm trying to determine if Rick had planned for certain to cut Carol loose at the end of their trip, or if he was was just feeling her out and truly made his sure decision only after he saw another instance of her heartlessness towards the tenns and her disinterest in even talking about her daughter Sophia in the tomato garden.

I think he may have taken her out undecided - but prepared to cut her loose and finally made the call when he realized she didn't value any human life any more as evidenced by her interaction with the two teens. She basically called them useless and believed they should leave them to die. Rick still has morality - and that discussion to him was unacceptable, and proved to him that she had become too cold to be safe with his family and friends.



I do think it's a little odd that 1.5 years into the apocalypse - there are still people that are so 'innocent' that they can't kill a single zombie - and choose to hide in a bedroom over facing just a single zombie? How could they have ever survived this long?
post #4878 of 6194
So the guy who was hiding out with the girl was never shown to be dead. I have to believe we'll see him again. I wouldn't be surprised to see he and Carol, " two stalwart friends, off on a whirlwind big-city adventure!" wink.gif

I haven't seen it mentioned, but I think the opening of TWD is really good. The scenes, (the Michonne eyeball and the caterpillar are great) and especially whatever Photoshop sorcery is used to give the shots that slightly black and white look are great. Its faded and shiny at the same time. Combined with the music, it really conveys a sense of dread.

That's a great post. You captured how I felt about the episode, expressing it better than I could.

Well, as Freud would say, it looks like we've made a breakthrough!

Intense episode tonight....

Intense! Hell yeah, I was glued to the screen, and Hershel was the man eek.gif This is my favorite epi so far.

Once it looks like the fence is in trouble, why not clear it with the big guns then? Why the heck do you wait until they knock it down?

Why did it take Daryl so long to get back? We saw like two nights go by, right?
post #4883 of 6194
Agreed.
One of the very best episodes in a very long time.
post #4884 of 6194
Well maybe letting it stack on the DVR is a bit premature.
post #4885 of 6194
The way they were setting it up in the beginning I thought for sure Hershel was going to be a goner. I'm glad it didn't turn out that way.

I agree about the guns. I know they don't want to bring attention to themselves, but for crying out loud CLEAR THE FENCE!

As mentioned earlier it's way past time for a Thunderdome Truck.

Also seems like the intro music and video shots were done a little different, it's the first time I ever notice they've done that the entire pass seasons.

Speaking of music. That was Ben Howard, Oats In The Water they played near the end.
