I don't see one of these issues going well.
Awesome first episode
If they did, then the show would be over in a couple more episodes.
I'm not sure if the bite is fatal or not. In conventional zombie lore, it would be... I'm not sure the writers are following that path or not.
It was a good premier episode.
I didn't think it was out & out great, but solid.
A lot of good zombie kills.
Dale in the comics and now Hershel in the series. That is if I am remembering the comics right.
Well, they are already infected, so that's 1 reason less to think he will die.
But then you have the "fever" issue that comes in, which is usually what kills you. Cuting off the leg might work since he did it right away...but i say it's 50/50 that he dies.
Anyways, i thought it was a good episode, some good action, the plot is going along forward and a nice little surprise at the end of the episode.
Agreed. Very good episode. To the point I was able to overlook the Scooby Doo type scenes in the prision halls.
Loved the first episode!
And did you guys see The Talking Dead afterwords? I was pretty certain the director dude said "hookers" and not "walkers" at one point...loved how the host halted and said, "Wait a minute, did you say hookers?" :laugh2:
Good first episode. Carl grew up a lot faster on the show than in the comics. Good move there since the "keep Carl out of danger, yet Carl runs right in to the danger" thing had run its course. His zombie kill with no remourse was obviously to establish that he had grown up and adjusted to the new world order.
I'm really interested how the prisoners work out on TV (I'm sure the people who read the comics would be interested as well). I doubt there time t the prison will drag, that's for sure.
As a side note, I rewatched the second season last week on NetFlix and man it was really good without the commercials. Way better than it was waiting from week to week. 18 Miles Out and Better Angels were phenominal episodes.
With the kid that plays Carl growing in real life pretty fast, its smart to have age pretty realistically in the show.
Very well put.
For a group that had been surviving out on their own for several months since the abandonment of the farm, raiding, living off the land and not losing anyone, the sequence in the halls was more like something out of a "Keystone cops" than it was a finely-tuned "machine".
Walking Dead on FXUK ‏@WalkingDeadFXUK Walking Dead fact: the season 3 premiere has more zombies than the entire first season! #WalkingDeadFXUK
This was probably the only episode that they knew where he was the whole time. :laugh1:
I think I agree with this.
Maybe I shouldn't have read the comics, idk, but I wasn't nearly as drawn to it as a I have been in the past.
I thought it was a good episode, I do agree the hallway scene at the end was odd. Where did all those zombies come from the hall they "cleared". I thought Carl and Herschel aged a lot for just being a winter since we last saw them. Lori looks like she is bigger than she should be, but I'm no OB lol. Herschel is definitely Dale from the comics now with the leg. Interested to see where the Lori baby thing goes. If it is dead will it be a ZomBaby? Also curious to see how the prisoners work out. There is more of them than in the comics. Didn't see a old biker dude (Axel in the comics) among them.
If last week's episode was a 8, this one was a 9.9 for me.
Very powerful episode.
One of the best of the series.
So many high-points.
When Lori said she was a bad mother I said at least they know where Carl is in this episode then he sneaks off to find the infirmary. :laugh1:
Maybe I just don't like what they're doing with Rick, but I didn't have the same take on the episode as you. I think they're turning everyone into a caricature right now...super exaggerated.
Lori is ridiculously emotional.
Herschel's daughter (whose name I can't remember) is overboard innocent.
Rick is ice cold.
Carl is rebellious and fighting with his mom for no reason.
I still enjoy the show, but I don't think the characters are believable any more, which for a show that is supposed to be a realistic fiction of sorts, really hurts it.
You make some good points Future.
I think it takes looking at the situation as a whole... What I mean is look at the situation for the big perspective. Hell has literally turned upside down. I think the circumstances would turn anyone into a caricature if that's the right word.
