9:00pm EST on AMC Sunday. Looks like they're going to marathon of season 1 starting at 2:30pm.

I enjoyed watching it Mondays while I was over in the desert, and I can't imagine I won't enjoy the new season. Though, I have the same purist fights with the voices in my head while watching it due to having read the comics. Anyway, here's your heads up zombie fans.

Michonne needs to show up, ASAP. I know Kirkman's involved, but it kinda seems like the show is more "inspired" by the comics at this point.

Still excited about Season 2, though.

oh yea! Thanks for reminding me.
And the way I see if, the comic and the TV series are just 2 different stories in the same world that uses the same people Smiley: laugh

I saw the ads for this while I was watching The Shining earlier. I didn't see the first season (I didn't even know it existed). I set my dvr to record it, but am I going to be lost without seeing season 1 or should I be able to pick it up and enjoy it?

Season 1 was only like six episodes, so catching up wouldn't be much trouble. I'm sure there's a few things that'll be relevant in future episodes so it'd be worth watching. I will say I hope it gets to the Jail Arc. I feel that was the best storyline from the books.

Totally saw the ending coming before it happened. Didn't help that the commercials every five minutes showed the sheriff running through a field toward a house holding his son with a bullet wound. Or so I assumed; if it was a zombie bite he wouldn't be running with him, so it had to be a wound of some kind, and bullets made the most sense.

Nice sign from God, by the way. God says you done f*cked up, I guess!

Yea it was a Gun shot, and yes they are headed to a house. They seem to be going on with the graphic novel, but a different path to get "there". Many things in the TV show did not happen in the GN (the end of season one, Sophia "missing").

Daryl is a completely new character, completely outside the comic lore. And thus far he's such a piece of GOD HERO. Holy freakin' crap no matter what the situation Daryl is there to save the day! Considering just how useful he is, I don't imagine he'll be living very much longer. Anyway, we've thus far proceeded to the Farm arc, and Shane continues to live.

Overall, I'm enjoying the heck out of this series.

If you are catching this via DVR, it's really worth it to catch the half hour show afterwards called The Talking Dead. I only caught the one after S2E2, but found it enjoyable.

Lube, do you have Netflix? I didn't watch this last year, so I caught up on there. They have the first season streaming.

I had Netflix (well, I was paying for it, but never used it for some reason) before the change. I honestly don't know if I they just converted my account after they split the DVD service from the streaming. Either way, I caught up using other means, and absolutely loved the show.

Holy freakin' crap Shane managed to be worse in the TV series than in the comics. Seriously, I'm actually enjoying the show more than the comic and I can't think of a single instance where that has ever happened for me before.

I'm betting season 3, actually.

Rumors I've read suggest that Michonne is going to be introduce in season 3, and she gets introduced about the same time as The Governor, and my theory is that Merle (Daryl's brother) is going to take the place of the Governor and that Sophia will be the little girl.

Not a bad episode, but there have certainly been better. Daryl is going insane, which I kind of figured something would happen with him. Like I said, he's been way too useful and most likely to survive a zombie apocalypse, which means he will die soon. What I don't like is just how useless Andrea is being made in the show. In the comics, she's one of the strongest people in the group. Here she's a useless fuckup that can't do anything right.

I also like knowing major plot points, but the method the show is getting to them is different which makes them surprising none-the-less. It's kind of like driving a different road to get to the same stores and keeps things interesting. "The Barn" was a major plot point, and I was patiently awaiting it.

Yeah, the barn was a real WTF?? moment.

Andrea is driving me crazy. I never really liked her anyway. She may have been a strong character in the comics (which I never read), but she's really damn annoying in the show.
#27 Nov 15 2011 at 8:05 AM Rating: Good
I think current Andrea is a victim of character development. I think she will be one of the stronger characters in the future, but we have to see her growth into that role. I think at some point she will stop resenting Dale, and realize that he more or less saved her life, and will do all she can to be survive and what not.

I hope so. She's just so damn mopey and depressing. And whiny. And annoying. And she needs to admit that everyone else was right and she doesn't need a gun, haha.

Up till about 40 minutes I was so annoyed at how useless women were in this show, but Andrea is finally showing her potential. Then ten minutes later it vanished, but at least there was some attempt. Though Lori, Carol, and Maggie are doing more than their fair share of being completely worthless, though at least Carol has an excuse. Glenn is whiny and pathetic but at least he's useful to the group. Also, I just found out that the black dude's name is T-Dog. Really? But damn, that was a lot of drama in the span of an hour.

I actually missed the first airing, due to having to sort through equipment.

I always watch the second airing, and then the Talking Dead show.

Also:
"He'll probably have sex with all of them."
"I will kill you with Flesh Bullets."

Apparently Shane is just a sex fiend now, and will sleep with all the zombies in the barn.

I didn't read any of the comics/novels/what ever they call them these days. But I did not expect Sophie to be in the barn. Until they heard one more, and we were waiting for it to show itself, that's when I realized who it was likely going to be. Now the question is, Did Hershel know that little girl was the one they were looking for? And if so, why did he hide her from them, knowing that was likely the only reason they were staying.

I think Rick being the one to step up and kill the Zombie-Sophie is going to open Hershel's eyes. With them just slaughtering all of Hershel's friends/neighbors, it was just them killing people they didn't know/care about. But when Sophie steps out of the barn, and everyone starts crying/screaming and just all around distraught, and Rick stepping forward to end Sophie's suffering, that has to mean something to Hershel. He has to realize that this group who cared so much about finding the girl, would be willing to do that to her as a zombie, has to mean that it's very likely the correct thing to do. I think it's why the previews showed Hershel kind of "snapping". He realizes that his hopes for helping/curing them were shattered.

Good job. Way good job for cast and crew. Waiting until February will definitely suck. But I'm getting hooked on Hell on Wheels.

And Jon Bernthal deserves an Emmy and Golden Globe nomination for his portrayal as Shane. He portrayed Shane's slide into evil while hiding it and convincing himself that he's good is brilliant, just @#%^ing brilliant.

Didn't know there was a marathon today, so I missed all but the last few minutes of the last season's episode, and it reminded me that I really like Shane. Further more, they bring in more characters and they had to be Philly guidos? Smiley: mad Peaks and valleys, this episode wasn't as good as the last. Pretty somber, watching Hershel and Carol pretty much crashing like that was really sad, and Rick seems to be losing what little optimism he had.

And Comic Book Men, which is airing as I type this, had me rolling in laughter in the first minute.

Anyone else keep thinking Carol is Jamie Lee Curtis?

Anyway, I can't stand Dale anymore. I've been waiting and waiting for his character to become interesting, and it hasn't happened yet. They removed one of the only interesting characterizations from the comics, and all that's left of him is a whiny old man who seems to only be there to remind the audience of previous plot points.

Couple of weapon based pet peeves from the last two episodes: When Rick and Glenn were driving in to town he had that damn shotgun pointed at his own head. I mean, if I were Rick I'd have slammed Glenn's face into the passenger side window for that. Also, today's episode when Hershel was basically diving for cover and part of the wooden beam exploded from a gun shot? Yeah, that was a headshot. Hershel is dead as far as I'm concerned. His head was lined up directly where the wood splintered, and it didn't stop the bullet as shown by the hole that was there. Smiley: mad

And Lori continues to be the biggest problem for the group.

I can take zombies, I can take pretty much anything without flinching, except leg injuries. Just that whole scene had me squirming in my seat, and at the end of the sequence I had to look away. Also winced when the kid jumped and there was an audible thud.

Shane vs. Rick. 'bout damn time, though I'd have given the edge to Shane.

That being said, when the episode started I squealed because I thought it would be The Jail, and like I keep saying that was the best storyline from the book. I'm still holding out hope for it, at least for Season 3. Speaking of season 3, they've cast David Morrissey as the Governor.
Screenshot

I don't see it, but then again we'll just have to wait and see. Also, the Governor means Michonne. That I can't wait for. I hope they introduce her the same way they did in the book, but with the trend of just how useful women are in the TV show she'll probably be shown running through the forest, trip on a twig and have to be saved by Daryl.

Not having read the comic, should I be looking closer into Shane's comment to Rick about the lack of bite marks on the two uniformed zombies? Or should I not read anything into that? I feel he said it for a reason. It just really stuck in my mind. Overall, another solid episode.
