Yeah, but shouldn't they still try to attack her even tho she had rendered them harmless? perhaps a ZZF manage et trois?


Ha ha ha!! ::D

I wanna watch that show so bad, I've read the books but I've never heard about it being a tv show until that greatest tv show contest that ran here a few months ago...

I can't seem to find it on tv anywhere. I know it runs on HBO be he don't get HBO in Canada.

their attack instincts go away over time once they have no way to attack.

Mischone would use them as a type of warning system (they know when other walkers are around) and they prevent other walkers from attacking, because their smell overpowers her own. also, pack mules.

They desperately need Tyreese's group. They ran out of fodder's to sacrifice as Axel is now gone. They need the 2 token white guys there to die or else they have no choice but to put Herschel and his other younger daughter next up on the chopping board.

By the way I thought there is gonna be rape in the prison. Now that the prisoners are wiped out who's gonna rape who?

It reminded me of those tests they did on soldiers and found out most of them were aiming high.

Also, I'd like to know how that one guy got on top of the guard tower. Isn't it inside the fence? Is anyone else bothered by how he got up there?


Yep, I was pretty confused and was wondering how he got up there.

Agreed! I was surprised to see Merle fighting right there with him. I loved Darryl's line to Merle: "He's Korean!"
Rick really is losing it. And Glenn is in no shape to lead either because he's so emotional
Too bad about Axel. Was hoping he and Carol would become the comic relief couple. Though I must say, he took many a bullet for her :P
Awesome episode


I kind of want them to some how redeem Merle I am not sure if its possible at this part, I mean he is total..... jerk.......but I just love how Daryl is standing up to him, and how he and Daryl are interacting. They play nicely off of each other... The fact that Daryl said that about Glen made me love Daryl more. :wub:
Glen needs to worry more about Maggie and what happened to her and HOW she is feeling about it and stop worrying about Revenge!

I was disappointed that Axel died as well. I was starting to warm up to the guy but I would be lying if I said that everytime he got close to Carol I was like, "Get away from Daryl's woman" :P I

Anything is possible, I really doubt Merle will be welcomed by the gov ...... Glen has shown he is not a good leader for the group, so glad Darryl is back!

Not that anyone cares, but I'm completely done with this show. It's turned into a soap opera with the occasional appearance of zombies. And my god, can the characters be any more unlikeable??? Really, we're supposed to care about ANY of these tards?

And really, I don't think AMC can self-promote any worse than they do with this show. "Talking Dead"????? What a joke.

your definitely in the fringe with that opinion, as the ratings just keep growing and growing.

If you just want non-stop zombie killing play black ops 2.

They are secure, and in a prison. (Well atleast it WAS secure) What do you want? 60 minutes of auto aim and shooting zombies?
The show needs a good story line, and right now theres many, biggest one obviously being Rick's crew vs The Governor's crew.

The fact that most people are loving it and feel the shows getting better each episode, well I guess thats enough for AMC to know that they are doing everything perfectly.

Also I love Talking Dead, it's pretty funny.

The whole point of this show is that it's centred around the human drama within the zombie apocalypse. The second season was a snoozefest, that I largely skipped. There has been some great zombie killing lately though. Particularly, I loved the hatchback skull smashing. Samurai swords? The fight to the death with the broken chair? What show have you been watching?

Apparently, the Walking dead averages the most deaths per episode of all TV shows, with 38 and 91% are zombies:

http://www.hypable.c...nt-and-ratings/

Considering an episode is just over 40 minutes, once you subtract commercials and credits, you're looking at almost 1 death per minute.

I understand the human trauma part. I guess I justt find the acting really amateur and the characters are unlikeable. I know I'm completely in the minority on it. I just see it now as the new Lost, which started great then completely sucked megaballs for four seasons.

And wowwwww I was absolutely hammered when I typed my last post I can't believe I could even spell there!

I'm kind of with you (except I loved Lost up until Seasons 5 and 6). I'd put Walking Dead below quite a few other shows including Lost, Breaking Bad, and Game of Thrones. It's still enjoyable but episodes can be dry for large periods of time and quite a few characters are blah (Hershel's blond daughter whose name I don't even know, Carl, and Samurai girl are bad actors as well).
Not a big fan of Rick's crazy angle. Daryl, Merle, Glenn, and the Governor bits are holding the show together for me, with the Glenn/Maggie angle starting to look stupid.

Give someone in the group a hand gun and they can pick apart a moving zombie between the eyes. Give them automatic guns with a scope and suddenly it looks like they took shooting lessons from Storm-troopers......

They're good but they have a different feel than the show. So don't expect a drawn version of the show.

That's because networks have no idea what they are doing.....

Cancelling shows like 30 Rock, The Office, Happy Endings, Community..... but paying someone to write a show for Jessica Simpson ( I am aware that Happy Endings & Community haven't been cancelled YET... but they basically have been given the death sentence)

For all you that watch Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Sons of Anarchy and the Walking Dead...
Now that the Walking Dead has gotten much much better than season 2 was, how would you rank the 4 shows?
I'm hoping to start watching one of the 3 beside Walking Dead!
