Probably won't do much good without any ammo.

I thought it was a pretty good episode, though the TV budget really bared it's ugly teeth near the end during the heavy use of special effects.

Maintenance bitch? They have like, 5 moving parts. Dead simple and almost impossible to break.

They are NOT of much use to foot-mobile ground troops. Need a 6 man crew to man just one of the things.


I am annoyed that the sherriff didn't fire up the Abrams battle tank he got "stuck" in in episode 2.

I'm thinking there's a reason the tank was stranded there in the first place... not only that, are tanks really that easy for a non-trained person to operate?

Also, does the Abrahms have a seperate driver compartment? Some tanks do, and if you hope in the turret hatch...you're in the wrong place for trying to move the damn thing.
Title: Re: Season finale of The Walking Dead...
Post by: Wheels84ss on December 07, 2010, 01:03:40 PM
  Yes the driver is in front of the abrams and I am pretty sure you can't access the driver's compartment from the turrent. You can talk and there is a small opening but not enough to actually fit through IIRC.

I agree. They were given a half-hearted green light from the AMC brass when they pitched the show.

With the show's apparent success, hopefully they will be given the time and funding to orchestrate a proper 12+ episode second season.

My guess is they're gonna take up Brad's advice (or whats his name, that other sheriff fella) and head to that Army base 100 miles away. How they'll do it with empty fuel tanks is anyone's guess, however.

Aww fuck yeah. Weeds and Breaking Bad just ended their seasons (one season left for each of those now) so I'm following Dexter, Walking Dead, The Office, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Modern Family, and Community. :lol: I'm also catching up on The Big Bang Theory so I'll end up following that as well. I also started How I Met Your Mother but I've only watched the first few episodes so far. That will be my next venture.

Not from what I've read online. If that was the last season, I am thoroughly disappointed in the ending. But according to the intrawebs, Jenji Kohan said it was supposed to be the final season but they decided to do one more. Not sure if you've seen the last episode from this season but it was a serious cliffhanger.
Title: Re: Season finale of The Walking Dead...
Post by: dotCom on October 12, 2011, 05:42:50 PM
I hadn't heard anywhere they only planned to do one single season. With their main creative person gone, there is going to be pressure after the episodes switch to see if it was able to carry over and translate well.

This is in regards to the Walking Dead, btw. Not Weeds. Never watched it, don't care.

I really like Daryl's character, speaking of rednecks. Ever since "GOT MUH DEER!". He's already starting to pick up more of a personality aside from the 'kill smash destroy' aspect. I hope he sticks around for a while.
Title: Re: Season finale of The Walking Dead...
Post by: MiniVanMan on October 21, 2011, 12:58:19 PM
Yeah Daryl is showing to be a bit deeper of a character than he was originally, much better than Meryl, who I'm glad seems to be out of the picture, at least for the mean time.
Title: Re: Season finale of The Walking Dead...
Post by: dotCom on October 21, 2011, 01:14:50 PM
I checked IMDB so unless Merle's reemergence is a surprise, he's not credited for any further episodes. But yeah, Daryl is proving to be more than an idiot.. I don't enjoy the idea of any romantic relationships cropping up for him, but with as good an actor as Reedus is, I do hope that his character continues to grow and change into someone that more people can root for.

I feel like I could make a drinking game out of this series, as well as any zombie movie ever.. every time the party does something stupid, you take a shot. By the end of the 45 minute episode, you'd be hammered.

 Any thoughts on Shane's character? The attempted rape of Lori was pretty fucking scary, and I especially don't like how it's being utterly blown off.
Title: Re: Season finale of The Walking Dead...
Post by: MiniVanMan on October 21, 2011, 01:29:17 PM
I actually liked the way they handled that situation with Shane and Lori, it was like he wasn't really aware of how scared she was until she clawed him, then he suddenly realized he was a monster.. but they didn't play up his regret enough, I think. Portraying him as deeply disturbed by what he'd done would have made it more interesting, but instead he just acts like a pouty little baby over it.

Also, what's with all this touching and getting close to the zombies? Especially the black dude (can't remember his name) who sliced his arm on that car door, then Daryl throws a freshly killed zombie on top of him... no risk of the blood getting into his wound?

Do you really just have to be bitten or something?

Title: Re: Season finale of The Walking Dead...
Post by: dotCom on October 21, 2011, 01:36:17 PM
That I'm not 100% sure of. I think Daryl rather would have put an arrow through his skull after than see him get ripped to pieces at the very second.

And yes, Shane is acting like a little bitch when the issue is his to begin with. I sincerely hope he gets what's coming to him.

Wow... Merle probably won't crop up through the rest of the season? I'm blown away. I was expecting some huge mindfuck at some point with him during this season. I think, as long as Daryl stays alive, they have to bring him back at some point.
Title: Re: Season finale of The Walking Dead...
Post by: MiniVanMan on October 21, 2011, 04:56:21 PM
If Merle is re-inserted, I really hope it's not in a deus-ex-machina sort of way, where something really bad is about to happen and BAM he appears out of nowhere to save the day.

I was thinking the same in a sense. The reason I said that about the white supremacist thing...anyone else notice the Waffen SS symbol on the gas tank of Merles bike? I saw it on last weeks episode. He will probably try to hook up with whats left of his SS bretheren and mount an offensive...
Title: Re: Season finale of The Walking Dead...
Post by: dotCom on October 25, 2011, 08:39:48 AM
Yeah, I think as far as Daryl is concerned that family tie is about as severed as it's going to get. You notice how mad he isn't? And in this episode he even spoke of him, but it wasn't very fondly.

I love Norman Reedus.

I just know I spit food out when the girl from the ranch picked up Lori, and then Daryll shoots the zombie in the head as it's getting back up and says "Shut up." The only thing I could think of was 'Well played, sir, well played.'

It's a show about survival in a recent apocalyptic world. It's not just about zombies.

So the doctor is a Vet, and somehow that's a bad thing? Veterinarians study far more species than human doctors do, I think it's not out of the question that one would be fairly competent when it comes to operating on a human given the fact that they work on dogs, cats, horses, pigs, cows, birds, lizards, monkeys, etc... It'd take a lot more learning for a human doctor to do what a vet does than it would for a vet to learn just ONE more species.

Can't let that kind of stuff bother you as this is not a show about guns and the makers of the show likely know less about guns than anyone on this forum.

That's why suicidal-girl's gun changed from a Glock to whatever model that was that Dale gave back to her.

Her gun was the same as when she pointed it at Rick in Atlanta.
I do believe that the glock was Shanes, or one that was in their small armory.

Oh, gotcha. I must have missed that part... come to think of it I remember the scene where she pointed that particular gun at Rick. When did Dale take it from her? I remember when he took the Glock (or was that Shane?)

I don't get much time to watch this show anymore :(

I thought first season to be kind of dull.  ... season 1 got boring..
this troubles me.
i didn't see any of season one.  with all the hype i decided to catch up a bit and settle into season 2.
3 episodes of hangin out on the interstate, lookin for a little girl in the woods and hangin out at a farm with a gunshot wound.
i'm disappointed so far.
it's alot more drug out than it needs to be.
a few good parts seperated by a lot of boring

I agree so far. Their focus is drama so it does make sense, but it is a little slow at this point.

Is he a bad person for doing it? well... tubby did tell him to go without him once already.  I think the worst part about what he did was not consulting him first.  was it the right decision? I believe so; just maybe the way he went about it was questionalble.

I feel like with the amount of time their little scuffle took, they could have made it a bit further before Shane decided to "pull the plug".. but then, I guess we don't know just how far away the truck was from where he shot the guy.

plus, if shane had first convinced him to stay behind, the time for the scuffle wouldn't have been spent.  maybe the guy could've gone out in blaze of glory, kamakazi style rather than screamin like a little girl.

Kept the walkers distracted inside the building while Shane escaped, then put his last bullet in his own brain before being eaten alive... would have been a much less agonizing death.

Just strange to see Shane's sudden change in plans when at first he couldn't accept leaving him behind.

Don't be a dick. Not everyone has had the chance to get caught up on the series. I know you'd be putting up a much bigger fight if this situation was reversed. The only reason I didn't say anything sooner is because I already KNEW what was going to happen in the newest episode. When I read the spoilers, I wasn't surprised.

I came into the thread before I watched the latest episode and saw some info about Shane. So, I politely closed the thread and just need to remind myself not to visit the thread until I've watched the episode.

I understand the point you're trying to make, but it didn't really seem like that big of a deal. I mean, people already discussed the last two episodes in this thread so isn't it safe to assume that the third episode would be discussed as well?

I also think it has to do with the fact that he wants to live, but he also doesn't want to live without Lori and the others, even if he can't be with her. He wanted to regain her acceptance by bringing back the necessary supplies for the surgery, even if that meant leaving Otis behind. Had he not injured his ankle, I would speculate that he would have escaped with Otis. Unfortunately, his ankle was slowing him down and he had to make a decision.

In what way? Otis may be an EMT but he's not a surgeon. They've got all the help they need at the house. They just needed the supplies.

and the surgery is being performed by a veterinarian. if Shane's reasoning was that he was doing this to save the child, then it should have been him that should have been sacrificed. Otis would have been a far better person to help. not to mention anyone with any sort of medical training is going to come in very handy during a zombie break out. just about anyone can be taught how to use a gun and defend against a mindless enemy. it is the healers that will be in short supply.

another point is, if the survivors start turning against one another, "culling the heard", well then who is going to trust who? it will be bad enough that you have to fight every day against the known enemy just to survive. add to the mix that you can not trust the person next to you, thinking if i turn my back on him, am i next? once the survivors start thinking like that then humanity has lost, might as well become one of the zombies.
 

edit..

have any of you read the comics? this a world where this is not such thing as a zombie. there are no zombie movies, no cult followings, this is something that they could never have prepared for, something that they never could have imagined. that's why they call them "walkers" and not zombies. these are people living out a nightmare that they have never imagined. we can watch them from our couches thinking, well hell,  this is what you should have done.

Haha my girlfriend posted this on Facebook the other day.

http://www.avma.org/press/releases/111031_zombie-apocalypse.asp

5 reasons you want a veterinarian on your team in a zombie apocalypse

Schaumburg, IL — In recent episodes of AMC's zombie series The Walking Dead, a new character introduced to the show, Dr. Hershel Greene, helps treat and save the life of a critically injured child. Dr. Greene, however, is not a physician, but a veterinarian.
Now, under normal circumstances, of course, we would never recommend that a veterinarian treat a human, but in the midst of a zombie apocalypse, well ... physicians might be hard to come by, governing boards and malpractice laws are out the window, and if one of your party is bleeding to death, a veterinarian just might give that person the best chance of survival.

Which got us thinking ... how else might a veterinarian prove useful in a zombie apocalypse? Here are our top 5 reasons you'd want a veterinarian as part of your zombie apocalypse team:

1. They have a better chance at surviving: In the event of a zombie apocalypse, survivors are at a premium, and losing members of your group will make you much more vulnerable. The biggest risk is getting bitten by a zombie. Well, who's better at avoiding bites than a veterinarian?
2. They can provide medical care: Again, pre-apocalypse, see your physician. Post-apocalypse, if a physician isn't available, you couldn't do much better than having a veterinarian treat your (non-zombie-bite) wounds and illnesses. Veterinarians spend at least four years post-grad training to care for ALL species, so while the general anatomy might be slightly different, they're probably not going to be overwhelmed by the prospect of working on human patients.
3. They can take care of the animals: With electrical grids down and gasoline no longer in production, you're going to be relying on animals much more: Dogs for protection, horses for transportation, livestock for food and labor. A veterinarian will make sure these highly valuable animals are well treated, healthy and performing at a high level.
4. They can make sure your food is safe: Without grocery stores, restaurants or refrigerators—not to mention state and federal oversight—obtaining, storing and preparing food will provide a whole new set of challenges for most people. Veterinarians have experience in ensuring food safety and testing; many work nationally to ensure food safety at processing plants and distribution centers, or across the globe working to make sure food for our troops is safe to eat. Unsure if the remaining meat from a deer carcass ravaged by zombies is safe to eat? Consult the veterinarian!
5. They can find a cure: Veterinarians are experts at studying the causes and distribution of diseases, or epidemiology. They've been invaluable in determining the source and distribution of several diseases that pose risk to humans, such as rabies, SARS, and West Nile virus. Veterinarians might be able to determine what causes people to turn into zombies and develop a cure. Why aren't animals infected? Perhaps there's an epidemiological clue there!
Veterinarians bring an enormous amount of talents to the table: They're trained to treat all animals, from mice to elephants, from aardvarks to zebras and everything in between. They have expertise in animal welfare, food safety, environmental protection and public health. They work all over the world, in all types of fields, helping to ensure the health of animals and people. And, in the event of a zombie apocalypse, they might just be the most valuable survivors of all.

Talk to your veterinarian today about his or her zombie apocalypse plans!

I just went them to find this goddamn girl and get on with it. Three episodes of looking for her and nothing. Although, I have a feeling that Darryl might be on to something with that little sleeping area in the cupboard in the abandoned house. Although I was wondering if he ever went upstairs.

Post by: GMCBrewski on November 07, 2011, 11:27:26 AM
I guess they didn't want to kill it in the well and risk getting zombie flesh/fluid in the water. But it doesn't really make much sense anyway because it was a bloated, rotting corpse and would have likely contaminated the water, zombie or not.

Yeah, if the virus is transmitted by fluids, the water was already contaminated as the virus would be carried by saliva, blood or even sweat - and the thing was obviously bleeding. That was my original thought about why they wanted to pull it out, but it didn't make sense.

there's about 10-20min out of the hour that's worth watching.

there's not but 2-3 characters i don't want to either reach through the screen and slap or am completely indifferent to.  The Vet is cool but i don't think he's gonna be around too long...  'course at the rate the story is going, they could be on that farm for 2 more seasons.

 True. The dynamics of his character are interesting. He's done what he's had to to survive, and he makes no apologies. He's lived a very rough life, but it has allowed him the skill to help the people around him. Talking to Andrea, giving Carol the Cherokee Rose... it's as though he's allowed to be human for the first time in his life. I really, really hope they don't kill him off. He is by far my favourite.

ok, so, they pulled me back in for atleast one more episode.
yes, the blonde needs to be kicked out. honestly, they've made all the women characters witches if you ask me.  Again, there's only a couple characters I could stand to be around and the blonde nearly killed one of 'um.
the barn full of walkers is really what's drawing me back in.  You HAVE to wonder why.  Old dude don't strike me as the type to keep a 'Lions Den', so I have to imagine it's got something to do with this:

Alright, so. Blonde bitch needs to die. Period. And, the old guy is creepy as far as I'm concerned. There are various reasons why there could be a barn full of zombies - to study them, to see if they can be trained, and they very well could have been people who they knew and couldn't "part with". I can understand the annoyance he has with the situation; when you're the head of the household and new people come through and all of a sudden everyone forgets everything you have said and done up until that point, it's aggravating. They're putting his family in danger, and they're encouraging behaviour that otherwise undermines his authority. They don't ask him about anything (and it can't be helped the others lie) until after the fact (the horse, dinner).

 Meh. That stupid cunt shot Daryl. I hope she fucking dies.

Yeah, but he also put a freshly killed and bleeding zombie on top of the black dude right after he sliced his arm open... and they were also trying to fish the fat zombie from the well to save the water despite the fact that the virus likely seeped out with the sweat, blood and saliva oozing from the thing's body... so whoever is in charge of the do and do nots of how to avoid getting infected on this show must think that the show is about vampires and that the only way to become one is to be bitten.

Oh, and not to mention all of those close up kills with knives and blunt weapons... no risk of blood splashing into their eyes, apparently.

With the well thing they had 6 wells on the land. Easy enough to not use that one anymore.

And to the rest of you figuring out the infection.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neisseria_meningitidis

I remember the CDC episode how Jener clearly states it works like 'meningitis'. The tweak is in how the infection fires up the brain stem.

Meningitis is caused by quite a lot of factors, including viral.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meningitis

So, my guess is a virus, which is why its incurable.

Bacteria would explain the contagiousness of exposure via saliva, and meningitis can be caused by bacteria as well.

I doubt they'll ever go that far in depth as to what the exact cause it, because of the state of the world they're in now.

Best explanation I can give is saliva.  Look at the Komodo dragon.  Its blood won't kill you if it comes in contact with your bodily fluids (my own assumption, but a good one IMO), but its saliva can kill you if it bites you (Fact, ALOT of bacteria).

If they could say for certain that the zombie never dunked its head under.. and they're taking a big risk, not knowing for sure themselves how the virus transmits.

I personally would play it save and avoid contact with ANY bodily fluids coming from one of the infected.

I'm sticking to the "finding a cure/research" theory. Hershel did say he wanted to take care of any walkers on his land.  How do we know he was going to kill it. 
He IS a Vet, remember.  A zombie could be treated like any other dangerous animal.  There's ways to catch and move dangerous animals with out tranquelizing(sp) them or even getting with in 5' of 'em.  those lasseu(sp)/collar/leash things on the poles.  Do we know if tranqs work on Zombies?  The brain is still working which is what keeps them up; why wouldn't they work?

but about them being people he knows...  I couldn't help but notice the over-alls on one of them.  again,  maybe trying to find a cure for those he loves; 'least maybe that's how it got started.

I guess he could just be studying them, you know, seeing how long it takes them to starve to death, seeing what their other characteristics are... or maybe like I touched on earlier, not everybody in the barn was infected when the doors were closed, and he was studying the spread of the virus.

 Good points, Nick. I think if I had the opportunity to study how long it takes them to starve, I would want to from a safe distance. In Danny Boyle's 28 Days Later, there was a transition into 28 Weeks Later where the infected did starve to death - but it was because they were never dead to begin with. They were simply humans infected with a strain of bio-engineered virii that took over their adrenal/aggressor glands.

 What makes me think they can't starve to death or be killed any other way than the normal head/brain scenario is just the whole thing with the chick at the beginning. The one crawling around with half a spine dismembered? She was HALF a person, with HALF a face missing. I mean, clearly, she was not dead. Or dying. Just slower.

My feeling is that the virus, or whatever it is, will continue activity in the brain long after it should have shut down, but I don't think that means they wouldn't starve to death eventually - I mean in order for the body to function it needs nutrients, and without food their bodies are eventually going to feed on themselves. That's why it looks like some of the walkers are far more deteriorated than others, I think.

 Yeah, I see what you mean, but again, it brings me back to the one that's half crawling around. She'd obviously been that way for a while, and couldn't feed. Why was she even still alive? Or, a better example - the walker in the well. How long had THAT guy been down there? Probably a while! And he wasn't getting ANY food, not even like a bite here or there.

Well the torso-zombie looked pretty deteriorated compared to the others wandering around, you know, skin barely hanging on her skull, etc...

and I guess there's no telling how long water-zombie had been down there, but given that he was fat, it would probably take longer for his body to completely eat itself.

as for the blonde that shot Daryl, he did look and walk like a Walker. she also turned out to be a good shot. she is willing to pull the trigger. she just needs to be taught control and discipline.


the entire group thought he was a Walker, they all took up arms and ran out to kill him. you all are sitting in you comfy couches and know what is going on, it is easy to bitch about it. i knew the minute he ate the rodent with the blood down his face he was going to be shot.

you all say Shane and Daryl would be the only ones to survive because they think about survival. but yet when the blonde tries to take out what EVERYONE thought was a walker, she need to go away?...

She's not new to the concept of survival and survival involves teamwork. She was told not to shoot because the noise could attract other walkers. Yet, she fired. Shows she doesn't listen.

This isn't an issue of gun safety. It's just irresponsibility.

I don't think they will. I feel like maybe she was written out of the show, and I think Carl needs a reason to lose probably the one thing that reminded him that he's a kid, because from what I hear he's supposed to become this kinda dark character who has no real memories of a world without Walkers.

The adults have a shred of humanity left in them because they remember how things were, but I'd have to imagine that children growing up in this new world will adapt to it more quickly and be a little more cold-blooded. I think that might be the direction they go with Carl.

Wow. What a mid-season finale. Very intense.

For those of you who have read the graphic novels and mentioned Carl becoming a much more hardened character, let me ask you something. Do you think that with the belief he has that they have to say, that he has to preserve his family, that it will lead him to kill Hershel later on? Unless Hershel has a large attitude adjustment which I don't see likely, anyways. I don't know, I just really got the feeling that Carl believes he will do what he has to do to stay at the farmhouse, and since he's a child I believe he will almost adopt a Templar-like aspect to his personality, resorting to something extreme such as killing Hershel and going far more than chaotic good to achieve stability for his loved ones.

I don't think Hershel will make all of them leave.
He was starting to warm up to the idea of letting Rick and his family stay; maybe more. (the zombie retrieval was a test for Rick, i believe).  Then, in the preview he said "I want HIM off my land!"  He didn't say "I want you ALL off my land"

 Kal, this is the only thing I think you and I agree on. :lol: My heart was POUDNING when he began screaming and took the pick-axe towards the doors. All I could think was that Hershel was going to have a heart attack. But what really, really sucked, was when Sophia came out. It broke my heart a little, but mostly because looking for her was giving Andrea, Carl, Daryl and Carol hope. I mean, I really legit wanted to cry. And I never cry. But you find yourself holding on to the hope that she's alive with the party, because she's only a little girl, and with capable trackers such as Daryl trying to locate her, why wouldn't you find her?

 The amount of decay on her makes me think she was only just dead, too, which tells me that had they not stopped to deal with Hershel every fucking day and really combed the tracks, they would have found her.

I don't know, I just really got the feeling that Carl believes he will do what he has to do to stay at the farmhouse, and since he's a child I believe he will almost adopt a Templar-like aspect to his personality, resorting to something extreme such as killing Hershel and going far more than chaotic good to achieve stability for his loved ones.

I think that he'll kill Shane at some point. It seems more fitting to me. Maybe not even kill him, but at least shoot him. Or shoot AT him. With the way they're driving up the tension between Shane and Rick, something is bound to come of it, and Carl standing up to Shane whom was once his big brother/father figure, even if only for a short time, (also when considering how Shane feels about Carl and Lori) just seems like the most likely thing to happen.

As far as everyone else, I think 3 main alliances will be formed.

Obviously they're not going to keep Rick on the farm for the rest of the series, he is the main character and it would seem like a waste to keep him in one spot from here on out. With Lori being pregnant, though, there's going to have to be SOME reason to leave.

I think Carol might stay at Hershel's farm. Her character arc doesn't really have anywhere to go now unless they create a new scenario for her, but I don't think it would be the revenge/anger scenario, as they're already doing that with Andrea. I think she'll be written off the show, one way or another.

I don't think Rick and Shane will go their separate ways, I think Shane will want to stick around Lori because he believes she's carrying his baby, and also believes that Rick can't protect her.

Dale might be written out too... either he stays at the farm with Carol for whatever reason or he ends up killed by Shane, which I think would only happen at a point where they really want to show that Shane has completely lost it.

I don't know how they're going to handle Lori's pregnancy... obviously if the writers are gonna drop a bombshell like that, they have a plan on where to go with it, and like I said before I really don't think they are going to waste Rick and Lori by leaving them at the farm for the rest of the series.

So the whole time they were looking for her, that fuckass knew she was there?
no, he didn't.
Otis was dealing with putting walkers in the barn. Otis is dead (thanks, Shane), so he couldn't say "Oh, I put a little zombie girl in the barn just before y'all got here"

Shane was accusing him of knowing.

in the scene from the next episode they show during Hell On Wheels.
As they're helping Hershel back to the house Shane is still goin off trying to say he knew she was in there.  Hershel repeats what he said to Rick about Otis dealing with putting the walkers in the barn. 

Interesting. I didn't see that preview.

For those of you who have read the graphic novels and mentioned Carl becoming a much more hardened character, let me ask you something. Do you think that with the belief he has that they have to say, that he has to preserve his family, that it will lead him to kill Hershel later on? Unless Hershel has a large attitude adjustment which I don't see likely, anyways. I don't know, I just really got the feeling that Carl believes he will do what he has to do to stay at the farmhouse, and since he's a child I believe he will almost adopt a Templar-like aspect to his personality, resorting to something extreme such as killing Hershel and going far more than chaotic good to achieve stability for his loved ones.

I don't think he'll kill Hershel, but I thought that a major part of the book could potentially have happened at the end of the episode. At the very least, the set up is underway.

i don't.
he trusted Otis.  he was family (or the next best thing, i don't remember).
Hershel said put those sick people in the barn when you find 'um and Otis said ok.

I'd imagine the farm was much less tense, if at all, before Rick's group showed up.  Basically life as normal on the farm with the occasional zombie being put in the barn.  Treating said zombies as additional livestock (feeding).  Rick's group shows up now there's a handfull of extra people to feed and worry about with all their problems and different opinions.

The man is simply trying to protect his family the only way he knows how.

i can see Otis just walking into the house saying "got another one today" and basically leaving it at that. once the little girl was in the barn it would be hard to spot her form the crowd, the shadows and what ever else is in an old boarded up barn.

Post by: Kalgorn on December 06, 2011, 08:11:11 PM
A lot of good points in that article; however, some of the things they've done on the show were to keep with continuity in the comics. Lori gets pregnant in the comics as well, and Rick wonders if it's Shane's baby.

There are some huge changes on both sides though. Hershel's farm only lasts a couple episodes of the comic. Carl's gunshot only put him down for less than one episode. They moved on from Hershel's farm fairly quickly after some passer-bys looking for supplies came through and talked some sense into them.

And, in the comic, Morgan doesn't show up again for a while. Not until a good bit after they leave Hershel's farm.

To be honest, I was satisfied with the ending of the first 7. I think it was about 4 episodes too late though. They spent absolutely too much time on this hunt for Sophia.

If anyone's interested, I definitely recommend reading the comics. They're very good. There's over 90 episodes right now.

Not sure how that's possible since the first 1.5 seasons hardly follow the comics at all. There are people alive in the show that aren't alive in the comics at the point of Hershel's Farm. There are also people in the show that aren't in the comics at all.

Not bad. It was still a little slow... I really hope things pick up. I don't watch the previews for the next episodes so I can't comment on that, but it's off to a slow start so far.

If they're planning on sticking closer to the comics, this show must be in for 20 seasons because, at the rate they're going, they're way behind.

I couldn't sleep so I watched The Talking Dead which is basically a half hour live talk show about the night's episode. One of the writers was there as well as Dave Navarro. Navarro was complaining about Hershel and the farm and saying how he wanted to see more zombies in the zombie show, so the writer responded saying that basically from this point forward, all hell is breaking loose. They wrote a slow build up to really get you attached to the characters so that the upcoming events will really hit heavily.

As far as sticking to the comics, I read on IGN (I think) that they're taking pieces of the comic and also spinning their own tale. They want to give plenty of nods to the comic and give something to the comic fans, like maybe certain awesome events in the comic that fans would love to see on screen, but they also want to make sure that things are different enough that you just can't know what's coming, even if you read the comic.

I thought the idiot just landed on the ground and broke his leg, when they showed that barb sticking through I was like "Yeah I'd rather get eaten by zombies".

Great episode tonight. Shane is definitely coming unhinged. Yeah, he's been right on most things when it comes down to it, but it turns out that he's a hypocrite because the moment his personal interests (Lori) are in danger, he breaks the same rules he keep trashing Rick about.

I like that nobody seems to really be beating around the bush anymore and they're just directly calling each other out on shit. Say what you will about the lengthy stay at the farm but it has definitely been great for character development.

After that ending, I have a feeling that the show really might be trying to match closer to the comics. They've already strayed on a few points (and never being able to come back on at least one of them), but if that ending is any indicator, the comics might begin having a much larger influence.

It will be a good long while before Shane gets killed off, as I understand it happens pretty early in the comics.

He's one of the main players and getting rid of him this early would be kind of a huge blow to a major source of conflict.

It was comic #6 that he was killed.

I don't know if I agree that it's going to be a long while. I'm thinking potentially the end of this season, although that's only a few episodes away.

I think you'd be surprised how many people die in the comics. It's constant. However, there are also new people added to the group quite a bit throughout the series.

2.

3. Carl is also becoming more like his comic counterpart, albeit a little slower than the comics. He learns to shoot and is allowed to carry a gun before they even leave the camp outside of Atlanta.

I don't think they're real close to merging with the comic world just yet. They can never fully merge anyway since there are a few differences that they can't come back from. Most notably is Sophia.

If they end up getting closer to the comic world and they manage to last enough seasons to get through a lot of it, some truly fucked up shit happens. Things that will blow your mind.

I didn't think Dale deserved to die, I mean at the very worst he was just a nosy uptight moralist, but his heart was in the right place.

I would have been happier to see his character arc change over time, rather than kill him off, but I feel like with him out of the way, there's very little moral glue left in the group and things will start dissolving even faster... so maybe that's the point.

But yeah, dale needed to go. the "If this becomes survival of the fittest then its not a world I want to live in" stuff needed to go, because that is exactly the kind of world they are in.

Exactly, and it's ironic that his lack of a survivor's mentality (read:no situational awareness) ultimately killed him. "Survival of the fittest" was hard at work.

I think Dale's whole point of view is at least worth considering... what's the point of surviving if you lose all humanity? Yes, survival in this world requires some very difficult decisions, but if surviving means you become a monster, then what's the point?

Yes i do understand that you gotta get your hands dirty to make it, but again it just seems like i personally wouldn't want to live in a world where the second I appear to slow someone down, they'd just kill me without hesitation.

Dale appeared to be a bit stunned by the sight of the zombie cow. that and the noise it was making could have stunned him and covered up the noise of the walker just enough for the walker to get a jump on Dale.

I don't pay that close of attention to the shows. But is that not the first animal walker they have come across? Maybe seeing that gave Dale a new insight to what's going on. Kind of putting the pieces together, which could have distracted him for that split moment.

Im not disagreeing with anyones opinions, just keeping an open mind. It is easy to sit back and criticise, point out what they did wrong. But no one here knows how we would actually handle, react in a situation like that.

The animal wasn't a walker, the animal had its intestines pulled out by the walker, who somehow managed to sneak up on Dale as he was standing there, staring at the aforementioned disemboweled cow.

Scene (warning, real animal guts[yes, they're real... just... store bought], fake human guts)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7b-RNTWdsk

I think Dale's death could have been more meaningful.

Like, let's say Dale convinced them to spare Randall, and volunteered to keep watch overnight. Randall managed to get free and fatally stabs Dale with something he found in the barn.

From the preview of next week's episode, we see that Randall escapes, so why not give Dale's death a heavier impact by having him killed by the guy he was trying to protect?
Of course that would leave Carl's story open, you know, feeling guilty for leading the walker back to the farm...

But, you know, based on that video clip wicho posted.. I almost wonder if the Randall/Dale storyline isn't a parallel to what's going on with the show behind the scenes. Maybe the actor who played Dale was really outspoken against firing Frank Darabont (really against killing Randall), so he was fired from the show (killed by a walker)?

If that's the case, I'm a little disappointed. Tyrese has a much more powerful presence in the comics and they obviously skipped out on two more characters that they could have added that were traveling with Tyrese.

I'm guessing the virus is airborne and you dont need a bite to come back anymore because the virus mutated so as long as you just die you will come back? Thats what I'm wondering as Shane was having all the flashbacks of walkers breathing and drooling on him in the past. Wicked situation for sure. Sucks about Shane he was fucking psychotic, I like that lol. As long as Darryl lives on, he's definitely the coolest character in my mind.

Was nice to see T-Dog getting in on some acting in this episode :lol:

Can't say I feel bad for Shane. I'll miss his character only because he was a great source of tension and suspense, but killing Shane will obviously have an interesting effect on Rick (and Carl).

Interesting that the two polar extremes of the group are now dead (Dale and Shane).

The next episode looks like it's going to be intense, but I'm really hoping they don't kill off any more liked characters. I wouldn't mind seeing Carol go away but if something happens to Glenn, Maggie, or Daryl I think it would kinda ruin the show for me. I doubt anything would happen to Rick and his family so soon, but I also didn't expect Shane to die this early.

From a dramatic act standpoint, Shane was the best character on the show. With blatant dehumanization, his death wouldn't affect the general audience through their own naivety. Judging by your response, it worked.

Also, in the comic, Carl shoots Shane in the neck. Fuck that kid, hes the worst one of all of them.

Dale was never meant to be a bleeding heart master of zen. They also used his character to annoy the audience before letting him go.

IMHO, the original vision of the walking dead ended with season 1. Now it is at the ranks of a daytime novella... with zombies.

I'm getting pretty tired of people staring down their nose at anybody who things of things in a different way. And we now know that you have taken a stance against the show, so feel free to bow out of the thread and quit pissing in our corn flakes.

I know Shane was a great character, and I'd rather have him be around for a while longer, HOWEVER he had this coming. YES, he was brutal and cold and that's how you survive, but he was also losing his mind. He became dangerous for no other reason than he was jealous of Rick for having Lori and Carl. There are other ways he could have gone about getting his point across, or taking the throne from Rick, but he chose to use force in nearly every instance of diplomacy and that made him appear to be dangerous to even those he was claiming to protect. I don't feel bad for Shane. He was the first one to criticize others for doing something stupid like going off alone to rescue someone, yet he didn't hesitate to leave the farm to find Lori when Rick, Glenn and Hershel were already gone.

Daryl is far more sensible than Shane, yet also has the guts to do what's necessary to survive. Shane was a ticking time bomb. Being in love with a married woman doesn't justify the things he did. I didn't see him as dehumanized - his motivations were the most human of anyone.. but I do not feel bad for what he brought down on himself.


Dale was never meant to be a bleeding heart master of zen. They also used his character to annoy the audience before letting him go.

That depends on your outlook. Everyone where I work felt awful that Dale died because they agreed with him that the group was losing its humanity and that killed Randall outright just wasn't right. I didn't find him annoying in that episode, I found him pathetic in the way that he just couldn't let go of the world that once was, and I had sympathy for him. I thought he was wrong, but I was sympathetic to him. You told me that they dehumanized Shane to trick the audience into not caring about him...

...looks like their tactic to get people to stop caring about Dale worked on you.

Who's naive?

God damnit, I didn't know Shane died. :lol: I can usually deal with the spoilers in the thread, but that's a big one.

I'm sorry, I thought we put spoilers in the title so we could talk freely... didn't mean to ruin it for you.

I don't feel that Shane's death was some metaphoric statement, he was already unstable and pushed it to the absolute maximum.  If anything, he said his peace and his intentions for Rick.  Had he made up his mind that what he said was true, he would have killed Rick in the woods with nary a word.  I think Shane's plan was make Rick realize that if he didn't step up, he would himself.  That's a hard decision to make to kill your best friend (even if he's a psychopath) but it was something Rick had to do. 

Carl needs to learn how to talk.  :lol:  But, at least now they realize the reanimation can come without direct contact from the infected.

Yeah. Despite being annoying, you know he was still a good person with a good heart. He stuck his nose into too many people's business and played Mr. Moral Authority too much, but it was only of good intentions.

His death probably means about the same thing as the fat kid getting killed in Lord of the Flies.

Shane killed Otis. Shane killed Randal. Shane has wanted to kill Rick for some time. Lori tells Rick that Shane is dangerous and needs to be dealt with. Rick confesses to killing Shane in self defense, and Lori gets mad at him. What a fucking cunt.

At first I was like "WTF" (hence my comment in my last post), but then i thought about it and it made sense. I was afraid the show was going off the rails for a moment.

Absolutely Pussycat. Definitely a smart adapted survivor, sword for no gun shot, stealth and dragging the two stenchshields with her. Absolutely, tonight was excellent. Less talky more walky.

Christ. This episode was the first time that I thought to myself "Man, some of these people are fucking stupid." I know a lot of people have been saying it this whole time but it really hit me this time. Jimmy in the RV... what a fucking twat. There's 200 walkers around you and you're going to get up and walk near a window or door? C'mon.

And Patricia? I think that's who it was... one of Hershel's daughters. What the fuck... OPEN YOUR EYES. The thing was like four feet away from her! Idiots.

And now Lori... Possibly super big-deal spoiler:

(click to show/hide)

I'm still disappointed that there's no real Tyrone, even if T-Dog is supposed to be him. I hope he starts to evolve into the comic version if that's the case. The prison should be pretty exciting. I just hope they start moving things along a little quicker. I'd like them to be able to cram the prison and the Governor all into next season. I don't see any reason why they wouldn't be able to other than trying to milk the series as much as possible.

I'm really excited about Michonne showing up. Here's a clip of her from the comics talking about her friends:

Jimmy was a complete idiot. There was no reason for him to die, all he had to do was wait for Rick to yell "GO!", then drive away. His death could have been more creative. I was more upset about losing the RV than losing Jimmy.

As for that one chick, I never remember her name, but when are these people going to learn to watch over their shoulders? A walker sneaks up on Dale and tears his guts out. A walker sneaks up on Andrea, but she kills it and gets trapped under its body. A walker sneaks up on Hershel, but Rick kills it just in time. A walker sneaks up on whats-her-face and chews on her collar bone. That device is getting pretty played out, I'd like to see someone be overrun by walkers for once, rather than just letting their stupidity get to them.

Also, I think Hershel was hacking... he fired like 50 shots and never reloaded once! Also, no recoil, and he HAD to be using Aimbot.
Title: Re: [OFFICIAL WALKING DEAD THREAD - CONTAINS SPOILERS!!!!!!]
Post by: Kalgorn on March 19, 2012, 04:48:06 PM
Christ. I was sort of thinking the same thing. He fired like 8 shots before he stopped to reload. That's an amazing shotgun right there. Then again, Glenn was doing the same thing from the truck. And, unless he was using slugs, he was killing them pretty easily from a good distance with a shotgun.

Glens shotgun is customized, Id imagine it has a larger magazine. Hershels looked like a stock 870...so yeah that was kind of lame.

The lack of recoil drives me nuts. I know it's had to mimic recoil realistically but they could at least give it SOME effort. And no, Ricks "entire arm flailing into the sky" isn't what I'm talking about :lol:

I didn't even know who Jimmy was. I just noticed him one episode and was like "Who is that?"

About Michonne's zombie escorts (maybe this was explained in the comic?), bodily injury never seemed to affect them, what's keeping them from bumping against her, rubbing their upper teeth against her to try and eat her? At some point did their zombie minds give up hope?

About the zombies sneaking up on people.
It is called tunnel vision.
You get so focused on what is going on you ignore whatever is not directly in your immediate line of sight.
Your peripheral vision even shuts down for the most part.
It is a VERY real phenomenon.

The custom one looks like it's fitted for 8+1, whereas Herschel's 870 is 4+1.  My patrol 870 is 6+1, and is just a wee bit shorter than Shane/Glenn's.  I thought that they would actually let Herschel go down with the farm, but it's good to have a medic in the group.  Lori needs to stop acting like bitch- circumstances as they are, Rick did what he should have done a long time ago and she has the audacity to get mad?  She needs to come off that "OMG how could you" attitude.  Andrea, sucks she got left behind, but they never took the time to come up with the 'ohshitwe'reoverrun' plan so it stands to reason people will get lost, I'm surprised she was the only one.  Kudos to Rick for finally laying down the law.

And Jim is right- when you are engaging a threat many of your other bodily functions will shut down as you try to save yourself (fight or flight).

I also noticed Hershel is a cheating bastard with that gun. Of course, he runs out of ammo JUST at the wrong moment, right? :lol:

 So, I watched the last two episodes tonight. I will say this - of all the shit that happened, Andrea is the only character who really proved herself to me thus far. She fucking hustled when she had to, and she survived ON HER OWN until the very last moment, when Michonne saved her ass.

 That Carl is a little fucking 16a who keeps causing trouble and running off is REALLY STARTING TO GET OLD. Yes, Rick, it IS your little bastard kid's fault that Dale is dead. Being in that world as long as he has, why the FUCK did he think he was grown-up enough to steal DARYL'S gun (of ALL fucking people you want to fuck with, really?), then go off into the woods ALONE (Sophia, anyone?), and then when he finds a walker, he throws ROCKS at it. It's good he DIDN'T shoot it, the migrating herd would have gotten there a fuck of a lot sooner. Just.. stop killing off people who matter and kill off that little 16a already. If he does I bet half of the bad shit will stop happening simply because he's not there to put everyone in a panic by disappearing or do something fucking STUPID like luring a zombie all the way back up to the goddamn house.

Ooh!

Merle is Daryl's brother. He was being a dick so Rick handcuffed him to a roof, and when they went back to get him, they found just a hand, but evidence he escaped. Then he stole their truck.

Don't know for sure that he's the one who took the truck.

There's a rumor that wasn't denied by the show's writer that the helicopter at the beginning of the Season 2 finale might have contained Merle.

 Brooding. And you ain't lyin'. If that was my mom, I'd get beat within an inch of my life for even THINKING about going outside without an adult, let alone running off into the woods to throw rocks at a Walker. You know, if they'd have known that Walker was there, they could have combed the woods for more, and they might have learned about the horde sooner.

I'm re-watching season 1. It really does put a lot of things into perspective that kinda get lost in the waiting for new episodes. Seeing it all back to back tells a much more coherent story.

1. Shane was on top, running a strong group of survivors. He also had what he'd always wanted - a family, in Lori and Carl. Everyone was safe, everyone was happy, and from the moment Rick came storming into Atlanta, the group was in danger. You can watch how this slowly eats at Shane and drives him to the point where he attempts to kill Rick at the end of season 2.

2. Dale started out as a very sensible person, playing to both sides of a debate and bringing out reason from both. You can see that the worse things got, the more desperate things became, he started desperately grasping onto that sense of ethics and morals that was being stripped away.

3. Daryl is still by far my favorite character. When Rick tells him how they left Merle on the roof, he tries to attack Rick with a knife but gets double teamed and Shane puts him on a choke hold, and Daryl says "Choke holds are illegal!" :lol:

They did a shit job with Back to the Future and an even worse job with Jurassic Park (though i only played BttF). this game will suck. Not worth paying any attention to.

I think a 3rd person game that controls like Red Dead Redemption, with a decision/consequence system like Mass Effect, and an inventory/looting system like Fallout would make the ideal post apocalyptic zombie game.
