You have to know a show isn't doing much on the character development front when I so consistently forget characters names. I know Rick, Glenn, Maggie, Herschel, Daryl, The Gov, Michone, I've started to remember Andrea. Just quickly off the cuff, I can't give you ... the shaved head lady (how's she keep that hair so short), Daryl's brother (Merle, just struck me), the kid, Maggie's sister, any of the prisoners, anyone else in Woodberry, or any of the prisoners Rick just scared off.

Yeah it was bizarre. Michone and Glen convinced everyone they were coming and nobody kept watch. Instead everyone was prancing around in the open. Terrible set-up.

I also thought that was Andrea, but I don't think it was, the commercial for next week gave away a clue

You forgot that them (Rick) raided Woodburry & killed half of his crew. The black & mexican dude are all that's left.... Well, the Latina chick too. As far as I know though, they only only showed the governor, guy at guard tower, mexican dude, black dude & the person that was in that truck.

This shootout was so much better than the one where Rick and the crew raided Woodbury. Everything just felt right.

Look, shooting someone while standing still is different than shooting a moving target or a target that's aiming right back at you. Yeah, yeah ... Rick is a trained policeman, but c'mon ... HE AIN'T PERFECT -- It's a TV Show, but maybe he was just havin a bad day or didn't get a clear shot ... Anything could have happen.

And Glenn should chill the F*** out ... Him gettin' mad like that doesn't fit into his character, he should stick to being a little clueless when it comes to stepping up but a little smart about things, Cuz' really ... he's getting annoying.

But yeah, I like where Herschel had nowhere to go but just lay on the floor, it adds a little flavor to the shootout -- Cuz I thought he was gonna die at first.

I swear I was screaming on top of my lungs when they had that ramp down ... As soon as I first saw that ... I was like "Oh shittt, I know what this is!!!"

THAT WAS A GREAT EPISODE!

Btw, what happened to that new group that was inside the Prison? The one that Carl helped get inside. Did they really get booted out? I mean, if they did ... WHAT A WASTE OF TIME.

I'm assuming they will end up meeting up with one of the two groups and have the story line go from there. If not, it was completely pointless besides the fact that it shows Rick still can't trust anyone?

I don't see a problem here. The Governor is keeping her in the dark and having her do stupid shit while he goes after her friends. More of a build up to when there's finally actual interaction between her and Rick's group.

This is what, the 2nd episode since the mid-season break, so people might not be that fresh. Carol went MIA for a bit, so she's easier to forget, the people Rick scared off were brand new characters, there's only been a couple Woodbuy people they've really done much with (can't think of any names outside of Milton), but I did have trouble with Axel's name and Maggie's sister (hell, I can't think of her name now). Merle has been maybe the best character this season. He's been awesome. Carl's character has had plenty of development and is one of the bigger characters remaining, so I'm not sure how you forgot him. A number of people have been throwaway characters, so they're not really supposed to get much development.

The shit hit the fan, they weren't prepared and zombies don't shoot back.

I also thought it was Andrea that drove the van in with the zombies but the preview for next week makes it seem like she wasn't involved.

Why would Andrea be involved in something like that?

They're exaggerating his "Crazy" thing. I mean, I know he's losing his mind ... but c'mon, it's getting a little old now & someone need to POUR ICE COLD WATER on him and tell him to wake up. But really though, they're over doing it.

Anyway, I just can't wait to get out of the prison! THEY NEED TO GO BACK TO THE CITY!!!

I was just thinkin bout this the other day, and the best new black guy in this show would be that black guy from PRISON BREAK! C-NOTE!
And if they're thinkin of adding more characters, they should have T-Bag & Sucre!

Let's say T-Bag is wandering around -- desperate lookin for food and shelter And works for The Governor .... damn .... His face itself is so VILLAINACIOUS.





What yall think?

Bro, the agenda here was to keep it a strictly television discussion. You shouldn't be encouraging comic talk. Didn't you see sixerfan get ripped for it in this thread? I like sixerfan but I got to agree with the others on this one, keeping it strictly TV has made the discussion alot more engaging and the TV show alot more suspensful

He's not long for the show. His slight redemption and eventual death will be another predictable character arc in this show. I'm still watching but when the most likable characters are Glen and friggin Carol, there is a problem.

Maybe the video game just raised my expectations a bit too high when it comes to Walking Dead storytelling. I realize there are limitations to what you can do on a tv show.
