Was any else going to flip if Darryl had been killed by the girl?


I was about to turn off the T.V.. Andrea is such an idiot, why would you even attempt a shot from that far off. Not only that, why would you waste a bullet on a walker when the situation was clearly being handled by Rick and the rest.

Yes. Andrea is well past the point of annoying me at this point. Okay she's second next to Rick being the odd man out and not knowing about his Wife and best friends liaisons.

seriously. its a single person, which you can't even tell if its a walker or not because of the glare, it's off in the distance, 4 guys are already running out to take care of it and are between you and the target, and any shot would potentially draw in more walkers from the area.

she's a complete idiot and need to be killed by a zombie hoard ASAP.

No doubt. My interest in this show is already teetering on the edge, and the fact that a racist redneck character has been my closest personal connection is the only thing holding my interest over the past few weeks. Otherwise, what the hell is this show. We get one, two, three zombie scenes if we're lucky. The rest is like a poor man's Lost, none of the cheesy-fun sci-fi aspects, just a bunch of characters irrationally yelling at one another.

At the moment the only intriguing mystery in the entire plot (to me, anyways) is the barn full of zombies.

It would be much better if they leave this boooooring barn and move on. I want some zombie action, lots if it.

I also want Andrea to be eaten slowly by a single walker, perhaps in a well or something.

I agree to. He's my favourite character, since he's one of the only characters that's stand able. Though the new Shane has some potential. I was kinda pissed how they handled the shot. Either have her miss completely or shoot his brains out. Don't "just skim him", just a lame cop out.

I agree with the rest of your analysis. This whole Sophia thing is stupid, they've spent what...6 episodes looking for her? It's really just getting stupid now.

This season is about half as good as last. Why did they fire all the writers from season one, again?

The reason why it's slow right now is because they need to develop the farm characters before they find/give up on the girl. All of them play roles later.

What an absolute joke of a season so far. I should've stopped after the awful Season 1 finale, but I had some hope. It's now gone. The acting is awful, and this barn/looking for girl/pregnancy angle is just killing me.

To those that that feel this new season is ruining the show, what was so great about Season 1? Take away the first episode, and what do you have left? It's really not any different then season 2... Which, if anything, is not a good indicator for season 2 so far.

This show's been getting a lot of praise over the last year for being a masterpiece, and I just never got it. Kind of assumed it had to do with it's slow pacing, but now I'm completely lost on it, since that's the thing that everyone seems to be complaining about this year. I'm not a fan of the slow pace, but it's been the show's M.O. since day one. I like season 2 in that it gave the show the sense of direction it needed, but I can't stand how they need to draw out every plot point. They could have introduced and resolved all of them in 3 or maybe 4 episodes, but it's almost as if they want to fill out the show's quota for the season without doing anything, and saving all their ideas for later. In any case, it's just lazy.

They had better find the damn girl soon. It's hard to believe they managed to stretch that storyline to going on 6 episodes now. At this point, if she's dead or a zombie, all this searching has been for nought, they will have completely wasted the first half of the season.

The show is definately feeling a bit directionless right now. Simply too much time spent on being lost in the woods and, like many have said, I just don't care about this missing kid.

i liked last night's episode, but you could tell a woman wrote it. no way does a man just brush off his wife sleeping with his best friend, especially so close to after she thought he was dead, and now she's carrying his child... nope, that's not going to just be ok.

I still don't like angela, but she's getting a bit better.

there was a whole lot less whining this episode, which was good, and I'm liking the glen/farmers daughter story, but i have a feeling everything's going too good right now, something seriously bad is gonna happen next episode (the last new episode until the new year), it should make for a good one.

Actually almost nothing has happened this entire season.

I have no clue where they intend to go with the story from here. At least last season they had an objective (get to the CDC), there's no direction at all right now.

And isn't this show supposed to be about zombies? I saw one zombie last episode, and one in the previous episode until the final minute.

I think Shane is supposed to be more the bad guy than Rick (Sheriff) but I like Shane way more than Rick. I find his character annoying with the whole Leadership/Wife/Carl/Searching for Sophia commitment deal. Hands down though, the best character is Daryl. Also loved the cameo of Merle (Michael Rooker) in the Chupacabra episode.

you missed the barn full of zombies, and the dozen or so zombies they killed in the housing development? (i was so hoping that was going to be the end of andrea)
