You are retarded if you expect anything other than gore, relentless killing and gritty suspense from a zombie show. So dont come here bitching about how mindless or not plausible this show is since its not supposed to be. I watch this for its extreme violence and suspense and I ****n love it.

Episode stated that zombies sometimes fall into routine if they are not feeding. Hence the black women zombie kept on trying to go home. The zombies looked like church regulars. They most likely routinely visited

For real. They need to thin the herd anyway. Shift the focus to Darrell.

I'm not one for gratuitous action on screen, but I wouldn't mind a little less melodrama/emotional displays and a little more situational action.

The first season had more suspense and tension.

Starting to not like a lot of the characters. Rick is OK, double crossing cheating wife, Shane is an attempted rapist, the blonde chick (need I say more), chinese guy has been invisible, you could go on about most of them.

I'm ready for the Darrell, T-Dog, and old guy show.

rick is an idiot, first he leaves the little girl by herself, and tells her to find the road by herself, and then he allows his son to approach a wild animal (dont give a **** if its a buck, deer or whatever), and THEN, he also suggests to leave his dying son just to tell his wife what happened, instead of ensuring the kid has enough blood. that episode pissed me off, and almost turned me off from this show completely. i'll give next week a chance...

Default Re: The Walking Dead

they need to spend a little more time on the other characters who are actually very interesting. make the show more character driven, which is what it was always about. add in a few gore moments here and there but stress on darryl, the black guy, the old guy and the chinese guy and darryl's brother. and also the black guy and his son in episode 1 of the show.

maybe have flashbacks so we get to know a little more about these characters.

Maybe just because I'm a Lost fan, but I really enjoyed the flashback. Less about the kid, and more about the tension between her and Shane. There should be many more of them.

Yeah, it's a very stupid thing to do. Even if he hadn't gotten shot, a buck/deer like that can seriously mess up an adult human, especially a kid no less.

I completely agree. The flashback was a really nice touch, and I'd like to see more stuff like that. The webisodes they have on the site with the zombie stories, where they give you a background story on a zombie going through their change. And I'm a big Lost fan too.

I sort of liked last nights. I like the smaller atmosphere moments, like TDog seeing the blood spattered baby seat.

I thought the random walker attack on the blond chick was really well shot.

I do look forward to them continuing to flesh out those other characters rather than it just turning into Rick/Shane/Wife/Kid. But it's only the second episode.

I also like where it's heading, with that house being filled up with new people to learn about, new info to get, and the inevitable defending of the house against a swarm.

The one thing that's starting to bother me is the speed of the zombies. There's always the one in front of the pack that seems to be jogging and the rest are on some serious power walk trip.

In the comic, characters would get surrounded by a few zombies and they could be fought off or killed cause they were all slow shamblers. That added alot of tension on page.

I can understand some of the less decomposed ones being able to walk faster, but on the show they all seem to be a little too fast.

Yeah, I noticed that they've become inordinately fast this season.

The gang used to be able to use clever flanking tactics to escape from being trapped by the walkers. Now it's just run for your life as fast as you can.
