He seemed to have suffered from the crappy writer little smoopy poopies!
In reading the complaints, I really think there is a fair amount of fail in what people were disappointed in. If they were going to waste time doing any filling in on backstory, it should have been on Michonne and Darryl's looking for the Governor and at what point Darryl decided it was pointless enough that he headed back to the Prison. I am hoping that Darryl and Michonne have some discussion on that one in a future episode.
Just me personally, but I don't care about how the Zombies got on the roof or why the building collapsed. I also don't care how they got pigs and crops. It could be a hail storm hit that area therefore weakening the roof and knocking out the pigs long enough that Ricks group could grab them. Could be that the Superstore was in the midst of a lawsuit with the meth addicted roofer. By the way, let me tell you, roofing on meth does not produce a quality roof. Point is, unless we are watching a roofing video (which are in fact entertaining), it does not do much for the story they are trying to tell.
***Quick Spoiler*** Per Kirkman, the interaction between Rick and the crazy lady was supposed to be symbolic of the theme of the season and Rick in general. Take it how you will, judge it how you will, but they put it in with the intention that it was much more than filler. Just passing along the info.
One more observation. Judging from Future's posts, he is wrought with a horrible guilt over something and is punishing himself in the worst way he can imagine; by continuing to watch the Walking Dead.
Most of the things I don't care about.
The crops and the leg and the addition of people isn't totally unexpected although I would like to know a little bit more about the finding of the some of the new people, especially the guy who got trapped in the store because it appears they're going to use him as a more regular person.
The crops is an natural extention. They talked about doing that in the last season and the animals it's obvious how they go them. They went out and got them from farms and such that hadn't been plagued yet. That's pretty simple.
I just would like to see a little background on some of the new people, not necassarily in the first episode, and I would have liked a little more about why Michoine is going out on her own to look for the Gov. Why is no one else helping with that really at this point if it's that big a concern?
Just some things that are weird, like the knife training thing, is all.
I really hope that they start progressing the story-line some. It feels like they have a lot of filler episodes lately.
Anyone figure out what was in the psycho lady's bag? Baby? Head/torso of her hubby?
Per the talking dead episode It was the head of her husband.
She did tell Rick when they were approaching her camp, "He's just ahead."
Haven't read the full thread here. And I just watched the episode on DVR...they DID show part of Hershel's prosthetic leg actually.
When he was down on a knee with Rick, pointing out a section of plant in the shade and how he could re-plant that part to grow and bear fruit, you could clearly see metal as part of his lower leg above his shoe. Just saying
Good episode. Much stronger than the premier IMO.
Who the hell is sabotaging the prison?
don't care, it's a sideshow.
rick put his guns back on.
michonne cried - i believe she lost a child and we'll find that out soon enough.
I don't feel invested in these characters anymore...except for Maggie, she's hot.
I believe it's this guy...
I can be wrong.
I think that they are just doing a poor job of progressing the story-line. It almost feels like they originally only planned for 3 seasons, now they've decided that due to the popularity of the show, they are going to do 6 seasons, and they just don't have enough quality content to fill the gap.
Makes you wonder if the Governor is involved.
That will be my assumption.
I thought this episode was excellent. Some powerful scenes.
Feeling the same way.
Although I feel like there's been a change in behind the scenes people and not in a good way and I feel the show is suffering as a result.
Mini plot points like no guns that go nowhere and are quickly dropped feel like stalling to me.
And there is little impact when 'red-shirted crew members' die.
It's like they don't have much going on other than the Governor.
And I would like to know why the dark, dank, dirty prison is better than the clean, normalcy that was shown in Woodbury?
More than a bit disappointed thus far.
Gotta say I'd have folks out at that fence morning, noon and night spearing the undead. To me keeping that fence clear is job one.
Yeah, that's kind of what I was thinking. When the season started, didn't they have people out on "fence duty" at regular intervals? Who do you think is sabotaging the prison?
