Trailers always spoil things. Also, any recaps ("previously on the Walking Dead/any show") at the start of episodes spoil things because they always recap the plot threads that are going to be revisited in the current episode. I skip past all of that.

I like this show but one thing that is weird to me is how slow the zombies are...like if they were really that slow and uncoordinated, it doesn't make any sense as to how they took over 99% of the humans. For example, the zombies in the will smith movie I Am Legend are vicious and it makes sense that they could take over the humans.

But besides that it's a good show.

yah.... how can random civilians survive, but the zombies somehow overtook every military in the world?

you think they would have killed everything pretty easy in the beginning since there werent as many walkers.

I was wondering if maybe their water supply is tainted, I thought it was interesting that they zoomed in on the water coming out of the shower as the kid collapsed and died.

just an fyi, they are making a spin off of twd with no connection to the current group or location. it would be great if they tried something different, like maybe a surviving military platoon or in another country. i don't want to see another bunch of civilians banding together.

Are you referring to the woman Rick was trying to help who was crazy? If so, I think the point of her was to set up some self reflection for Rick since he was going crazy last season.

I doubt that. Network television isn't the most creative when it comes to new concepts. We might just get a walking dead Miami or New York. I think the best we could hope for is another country.

I get it, but it seems like it took up so much time when everyone saw where it was going. I thought crazy Rick had some closure last season. Didn't see the point of spending so much time bringing it up again.

Yeah. Absolutely. In fact there was a stretch there where I wasn't so sure she wasn't even real, just Rick's subconscious poking through.

I'm not a fan of the Governor. I prefer bad guys where you can relate to them and see where they are coming from. They just shoved down our throats "look, he is bad, see how bad he is?" rather than making an actual interesting character out of him.

I just caught up last night, so I'll give my initial reaction.

I really liked this as a premier. Much more than last year, where really right from the start The Governor's set up just didn't read well to me. It just looked too fake. This sort of farm living set up they have now makes a lot more sense for communal living to me.

I really like the introduction of whatever this disease is. The show needed a new threat. Once we learned about the groups being infected and having some kind of ability to fight it off until death, it sort of took the disease threat out of the show, and the zombie threat is only real in specific settings. This looming disease is far more interesting than last years goofy Governor group in my opinion. And the fact that the disease can breach their fences in a way the already existing zombie threat can't is a nice element.
I also thought the set piece in the store was really well done. Pretty well shot. Pretty well thought out layout of the idea. A bit dark at times and quick cut-y for my taste, but overall very well handled.
The weird chick Rick dealt with was a little all over for me. She obviously was a reflection of Rick. Here seeing a lost husband was not unlike Rick, although he seemed to be somewhat real based on that moving bag, but it would've been better had they just left him a figment of her imagination. But more than that I think it was a reminder for Rick to trust and help people. He's obviously back to having issues we weren't completely exposed to last night, which is why they had to have a talk with him before he went out, and why they added little notes about Darryl bringing in more people than Rick of late, and other little mentions here and there.

I hope this season turns out better than last year. The threat of The Governor looming I can deal with so long as it doesn't occupy so much time like last year.
Further exploring this community they've developed interests me. Especially once it's under attack by this disease. And I'd like to see more of what they have for resources. Rick appeared to be rockin an Ipod to start the episode. And they talked about using car batteries to rig up that speaker for the music to attract the zombies away from the supply center.
