"The Walking Dead" on AMC HD - Page 164

post #4891 of 6194
I think this might be the best episode so far this season.

Everyone responds to lots of zombie action with, "that was a good show."

All the slow episodes that we are told is what the show is all about get, "this show sucks now."


I hope they step up the writing on the Guv. Because from what I hear about the books, that I don't read, they missed. Mischonne has a disproportionate amount of ire for this guy. Sure he mass murdered people, but she had this hate before she learned any of the dumb things he did.


The scene with Lizzy and her zombie puppy changed my view on her, then she went and spun it right back with that puddle of blood. She's total psycho still.


I have a feeling Daryl is going to get stupid when he learns, they kept it out of the show so they could have a ton of time to deal with this.

I'd be ok with an episode where the alcholic guy steals some soap for Daryl.

I think the fence got crowded again because there were a lot of people out, so nobody took care of it until it was too late, like mentioned I would have unleashed the firearms first and repair later, that was a close call.

I thought that Herschel and Glenn were goners, also too close for comfort.. So that means the antibiotics worked on the disease and everybody is now clear..

I guess the Governor was near all this time and Michonne was looking in the wrong places for him..

I was coerced into watching an episode of the show by my 15 year-old grandson. Today I caught the article below indicating this thing is a hit on the order of American Idol of a few years ago. Incredible. There must be appeal from pumpkin-smashing zombie heads I have missed all my life. Maybe that red-headed goober comic should have a guest stint.

I hope the Governor story line is not "I've reformed and I want to join you...OR HAS HE???"

The story line I want to see is the one where Michone separates the two hemispheres of his brain. smile.gif

I'm guessing the season with Woodbury was one of the most popular ones but they should just get rid of him and move onto other things.

Like some people were saying earlier, they seem to be meandering -- they thought the farm was safe and it wasn't, likewise the same with the prison, the same questions about retaining their humanity in this brutal world, etc.

The Governor is using the oldest tactic in the book...hiding in plain sight so close he is overlooked. I wouldn't be shocked if he literally was tucked away somewhere really close because MOST people automatically would jump to Michonne's conclusion that he must have run far. Based on his character and previous behaviors...hiding close actually makes a lot of sense to me.

That being said...the radio transmission has to come into play again and is likely going to be a part of the cliff-hanger season finale. They are going to just get through this sickness to then have to fight the Governor one last time before deciding to make a move to some type of better sanctuary. I still foresee them heading to a coast-line somewhere (as has been referenced a couple of times). It still makes a LOT more sense to me than any land-locked city could or would. Any and all transportation between healthy civilzations in this world's future would be by water most likely (since zombies don't swim obviously). Plus...there have to be some fish around to eat still right? Plus...it might just literally set up a scene in future seasons where they can literally jump a zombie shark!

An island would be ideal. Kind of like Gilligan's Island but with zombies. biggrin.gif

The first 27 exploding heads was simply exhilarating...after that, not so much.

I don't know why the zombies would be motivated to do this, but if they decided to just walk on the sea floor till they stroll up on the island's beach, then that wouldn't be a sure fire safe haven. Zombies don't need to breathe, right?
post #4904 of 6194
I see Carol hooking up with the radio signal broadcasters. She'll probably end up being the new dictator of these people. Or the Merle of this group

Eventually our group will have to go looking for these other people and meet up with Carol again.

I was wondering the same thing. For those who died at sea, do zombies float or sink? If they sink you could have a scene like in the first Pirates of the Caribbean with them walking along the bottom. If they float they could wash ashore. I think it would be interesting either way.

Been done in a Romero flick which I can't recall the name presently. There's also a Fulci movie where a zombie fights a real shark. It's worth the time for any real fan of zeke.

I thought the first part of the episode was slow, then it finally picked up with all the prison drama inside. Shame they decided to use all those weapons now instead of before the zombie broke through. I wonder how Daryl is going to take loosing Carol, will he leave to be with her/find her, or accept it like Maggie did?
post #4908 of 6194
Ammunition is a limited resource. They don't seem to have the knowledge or supplies to do reloads. Also, loud noises attract even more zombies, so they usually shoot zombies only when they don't have any other options left. In this case, of course, with only Rick and Carl available to fight off hundreds of the undead, they didn't have any other choice.
post #4909 of 6194
Did anyone else find it odd that they stored their munitions outdoors in what looked like an open-topped crate?

I've been waiting on the stupid segment portion of the week biggrin.gif, and I was thinking that all so, hell I never owned a gun in my life and thought storing a guns like out doors is a little strange.. rolleyes.gif

My guess is that Carol gets captured by the Governor (much like Andrea), and is used for bait to lure the gang out of the prison or into doing something stupid. Daryl will be gung ho to save here, Rick feels guilty for banishing her, and Tyrese wants her back so he can kill her. That's your big 3 BA's right there.

I like it. I think she'll definitely be involved in some way with the Governor plot, whether she gets capture or ends up saving the group from him.

Speaking of Carol, I am surprised at how many theories there are out there about her covering for someone rather than being the actual murderer. Examples are Karl or Lizzy. I personally don't agree with these theories, as they did a good job of Carol pleading her case and taking the blame, but I guess you never know.

I haven't heard about that, but it could be intriguing.

So when you see the fence caving in that is not an emergency? When the fence gave in once that was not an immediate need? When the zombie horde reached such a massive size you couldn't even count them anymore and they all were leaning on the fence, that was not the time? So instead of doing anything they just wait until it collapses then spend their ammunition. Instead of clearing them out with vehicles, instead of luring them away and doing something to them then, Instead of backing up a bus to the fence as a barrier, ANYTHING, they decide to do nothing and then spend one of their most valuable resources, ammunition?

Well, obviously! After all, we know what they actually did. I'm just trying to rationalize their choices. Decisions made under pressure aren't always the optimal ones. The fence is collapsing! Prop it up! After all, MythBusters isn't available to them and none of them are engineers, so they couldn't have known that it wouldn't work. (This was discussed in Talking Dead.)

How about at the very least, use wood or other materials to block the view of the yard from the zombies. Of course they're going to crowd the fence when you're just walking around in front of them like a giant pork chop. It's like a cat teasing a dog because it knows it's on a leash...until the leash breaks…

It doesn't take an engineer to know that a bus would drive over zombies and block the fence. Nor does it take an engineer to know that wood cracks and breaks. Plus they have lured zombies away on many occassions, they know how to do it. I think they all also know how to dig trenches, lure them away, trap them in a pit they can't get out, dig mutliple pits. Burn them, crush them at your leisure. Sorry, they can discuss it all they want on Talking Dead, it is lazy writting and the list of solutions to the fence/large walker mob problem is LONG.

Not just the fence .....
I'm not getting why there is apparently no use of 2-way or CB radios by this group ...
Virtually every 18 wheel truck & many other vehicles have installed CB radios, so some of these should be relatively easy to come by, same with Walkie-talkies ...
Depending on terrain, they could have at least a 3 to 12 miles or more range back to the prison and/or vehicle to vehicle on road trips, ( possibly more if they install a building roof antenna), & handhelds could be clipped on at least key personell for instant communication in & around the prision & grounds, & when separating on supply runs .. ....
Handheld 2-ways could either be charged in the lighter socket of vehicles, thru their prison generator, and/or powered by 'AA' cells scavenged during road trips... Mobile units are powered by the vehicles ...
This would seem to be as basic as being sure to round up Flashlites and knives ... but it's hasn't been so ....

It came up on TTD but it's rare they have any engineers as guests. Despite the technical AV discussion on this forum the majority here are not engineers either but it still comes up in this thread because it's just simple common sense solutions to the problem.

I'm amazed most of the characters are still alive and didn't wait until they died of starvation before they figured they might need to eat food at some point.

Awesome suggestion. In the event of a zombie apocolypse, I want you in my group. smile.gif
