Oh yeah. I forgot about that break, your right.
Finished season two just before work. I just have to go online this weekend and find the season three episodes to be caught up.
Just watched the first 2 episodes from Season 1 in the black & white version...very nice! Glenn...lol, he had probably the best line of the entire series so far, when Rick was getting ready to chop up a walker so they could put his guts all over them to smell like walkers and sneak through the walker crowd in Atlanta...
Rick stopped, pulled out the dead walker's license from the walker's wallet and announced his name (Wayne), and that he had $28 on him when he died, and had a photo from a pretty girl (love, Rachel)...then just before Rick began hacking him to bits, Glenn (who Rick had passed the GA drivers license to): "Oh, and one more thing, he's an organ donor."
That was a great line. It cracked me up when I saw it the other night.
I have been looking everywhere online for a place to watch the episodes from season 3 thus far and I can't find them anywhere. AMC only has the last episode where you can watch it so I'm needing to find the first 8 episodes somewhere and I can't find them.
Does anyone know of a good, working, site that that I can watch these on?
Have you tried Hula?
I have not because I am currently at work and couldn't access them but I'll definately give them a look. Thank you.
The fact that you cared about the Shane character is very telling. Did you care for him as in you liked him or you liked having his around?
I hated Shane almost instantly. It was bad enough that the dude is having sex with the wife of his supposed best friend only a few weeks after he believes his friend is dead (A complete no no in my book. You don't hook up with your friends women, rather your friend is dead or not), but then he was a completely moronic most of the time.
I got the point of trying to keep people safe, and I agreed with some of the things he wanted to do (I agreed with him that they should have killed the walkers in the barn and I agreed with him in killing the prisoner) but the fact that he was pretty much the only person who just wanted to completely give up on finding the little girl, almost instantly, is very telling about what kind of loser he was.
I wanted him dead by the time episode 2 of season one was over and outside of Agent Stahl in SOA I have never been more happy to see a character killed in my life. I was thrilled that Rick was the one who got to kill him (at least initially) because that's how it needed to be.
T-Dog even though I like him (i haven't gotten to the part where he dies yet of course but I knew he did die in the show) I don't feel that he's all that important. In fact he just seems like a randomly thrown in character simply to make sure the group has a random black guy in their group. He's really added nothing to the show in the first 2 seasons so he's not really going to be missed.
The biggest loss character wise to me thus far (through the first two seasons) was the surprise death of Dale. I hated that because I loved that character. I hated to see him killed off and especially under the circumstances where he was angry and hurt by the group wanting to kill a person.
I also haven't seen Lori's death yet but I knew it was happening in season three because my wife has been watching this show for a long time and I remember randomly walking through the room one time when she was watching it and Rick talking to someone about his dead wife. So I knew she would die at some point.
Shes an interesting character for me in that I've went from hating her immediately (first few episodes) to actually liking her when I realised that she was only falling for Shane cause he told her Rick was dead, to absolutely hating her again after the final episode of season two when she's clearly upset and angry at Rick for killing Shane.
I think that the blond chick (whose name currently escapes me) was right that she just wants to walk around as queen bee on the arm of whoever is in the position of leader, rather that be her husband or her boyfriend.
Couldn't disagree more. I generally hate zombie shows/movies because they bore me and they are just flat not good.
I've absolutely really enjoyed this one and have found myself rooting for, and against, human characters like I believe you should when you're watching this type of show.
Better than last week.
Did the truck load of zombies driver sneak inside the prison? I never seen where they went and never seen the person get killed. Also looked like a woman going by their build yet I don't know who it could have been.
I have one beef with the writing/directing. How in the world does the governor get a pickup truck that close and get a guy up in the sniper tower without anyone outside hearing it coming? Everyone knew they were coming and still got caught with their pants down. And with everyone use to shooting zombies I would think they would be better shots by now. Where are the tower guards sniper rifles?
The guy delivering the zombies crashed the truck through the front gate.
Earlier in the episode the group was having a meeting within a prison room when Glenn asked "Who's on watch?". The answer was no one.:laugh2:
Yeah there were a lot of bullets tossed around for only having two fatalities.
I don't like how they were all firing at eachother from long distance (200 meters or more) and they had their weapons on full auto or 3 round burst.
I swear, I'm no sniper or anything but with basic rifle marksmanship I learned in the army I could have easily taken out all the Governor's men (especially the governor standing out in the open like a moron) and I would have used no more than 6 rounds total. That crap bugs me.
Also... realistically hiding behind a car door or any other thin sheet metal would to ABSOLUTELY nothing for you. Bullets go through sheet metal rather easily. So when Maggie was hiding behind the metal file cabinet I was thinking "Oh she's dead", but of course the bad guys bullets mystically didn't penetrate the thin sheet metal.
If metal were that strong we wouldn't have to worry about IED's in the middle east cuz those fully up armored (real armor, not sheet metal) get torn to BITS easily. So yeah... sheet metal is useless for taking cover.
But where did that driver go? They ran up towards the prison and then seemed to disappear. Nobody even seemed to notice that person or fire at them.
And similar to what Rack said. I think I would have found one of the prison tower guards sniper rifles and think I could have easily taken out all of them. With the governor being the first and easiest of targets.
I don't think either side planned things very well. I was expecting the governor's people to be in larger numbers and to be using the national guard armory seen in the earlier episodes.
The driver had on a full, head-to-toe bullet proof outfit on.
He ran out the gate he crashed through.
I thought the same about Carrol "hiding" behind the dead convict laying on the ground... They were continually peppering his body with bullets but they weren't hitting her, laying behind him.
OK, you're saying they ran out. I thought they went towards the prison. It would have helped (get a sense of their direction) if I actually saw the person running towards the governor.
Anyone know how the governor's pickup got up that close without anyone outside hearing it approach? Maybe it was electric?lol
It also seemed to get there without using a road, right out of the woods.
That was answered already. When Glenn was inside asking Carl where he'd found the prisoners and such. At the end he asked whose on watch? Obviously no one was because they were all in there together. They'd already got themselves into position, I'd imagine just around the tree line, and were watching the prison when Glenn went out and got in the truck and stuff later. I'd imagine that they didn't just drive up and instantly start attacking. They were probably just barely out into the trees, watching, for a while before they even bothered to start shooting.
Yeah I'm not sure if he was in a head-to-toe bullet proof out fit (no such thing) but I remember seeing him running by Michone and shooting at her with a handgun.
I think people were more worried about the cover fire and zombies at that point so they didn't bother taking him out.
