I can't believe they simply would let the old guy tell them to leave.

Uhm...we have lots of people and guns. WE are staying. YOU are either staying and liking it, or joining the barn bonfire.... At least Shane tried to show Hershel that these things are not people anymore.

Can't believe they never told the group about the girl. They constantly feed the barn zombies, so what, they never noticed a little girl zombie stranger in the barn??? C'mon...

I'm sure the kid is Shane's, but like she said, won't matter.

A quick question for people who actually watch this. Do you watch it for the narrative and characters or mainly just zombie action? I ask because I really find it kind of tasteless. Not the eating your own vomit on live tv tasteless. I'm talking eating a stack of bleached paper tasteless. It isn't that I find it bad in fact I applaud them for filming outside so much that can't be easy.

Do those that watch and like the show find the characters and story a bit lacking at times? Or is this simply not my cup of tea?

I watch the show and do like it.

Having said that, I can see what you mean about the cast. I find the son character to be the most annoying.
All in all, I find the cast to be a " poor man's Lost crew ".

Once again, I do like the show but do agree, the cast is very week at times, not do to poor acting, they just don't seem to work well together at times, based on there rolls.

A bit of both (characters and zombie action), though I'd like to see more zombie action...and yes, at times, it's all lacking, but still good enough to watch.

There are a few good characters...Shane, the old man in the RV, the redneck hunter, and the Asian kid, but the rest (including leads) are kind of cardboard...

Even the new characters like Hershel and his foxy daughter are far more interesting....

In a "real" situation, they'd simply edge Hershel out and take the farm and stay safe...but that will make for a pretty boring show, so I'm sure we'll see them on the road and facing more zombies soon (I hope)...

The biggest disappointment of Season 2 is that they now follow the show with "The Talking Dead". Not that it's bad, but that they actually brought that douche bag Chris Hardwick onboard. That's a deal breaker. He's like nails on a chalk board for me. I'd like to watch The Talking Dead, but it ain't gonna happen as long as he's hosting it. He should go back to G4 where he can be a 3rd rate Daniel Tosh.

Well.. it's you know....still His place, his rules. Right? Sure, Shane opened his eyes, I agree. Hershel was being willfully stubborn on that point(not believing that the walkers were really and truly dead). But, I'm sorry, maybe it's just me but I think it's wrong on many, MANY levels that one group would actually take someone's farm away from them just because they(Rick's group or any one else for that matter) have guns. Not trying to be contentious but I just can't agree with taking someone's farm away from them, when, as Hershel pointed out, there were plenty of other farms abandoned around the area. Wouldn't that be a better idea? (and, after all, why do that to someone who just saved a kid's life?
) I dunno. Maybe I'm just too much of a softie.. *sigh*

On the other hand, I do like this explanation from the Walking Dead wiki -Hershel's Farm(Spoilers ahoy!) -from the comic books.. which I haven't read yet
(I hate spoilers but..I got curious.)


Anyway, I agree with you on your other points(re Sophia and Lori's new er, bundle of joy)....

Well... I'll weigh in (though a tad late) I've just finished watching all the episodes and the mid-season finale was good, has me hooked. The interpersonal/character development is okay, but for a zombie apocalypse type show, it lacks zombie action. I'd like to see a bit more...

As for the characters: the blond chick needs to go, her attitude stinks and she gets on my nerves. Old man should have left her in the CDC bldg.

I was kinda on Shane's side right up until he shot Otis and left him for zombie bait, that was stone-cold. He did start showing his colors when he pointed his gun at Rick's back in an earlier episode, so I guess I shouldn't have been surprised. Someone has to be "that guy" in a show like this.

Sad about the little girl, but it was probably more realistic then miraculously finding her in the woods after many days.


Hope the old guy sticks around longer (forgot his name) he's a cool cat and he brings levity and lightheartedness to an otherwise dire and grim situation. His personality is a needed component.

Also, hope the redneck doesn't get eaten any time soon... I expect there to be an eventual reunion with his bro. that might shake the group up some.

That's just it though...in this kind of scenario, there is no such thing as ownership. It's anarchy, whether one likes it or not. There's no authority to recognize property, only their morality.

Hershel's an idiot though, as a) there's no cure for someone who's rotting away, b) those zombies are akin to walking around a minefield, c) more people = more protection from others who may come and not be so nice, d) more people = more people to work the farm.

There's morality, vs. a needs of the many thing here, outweighing one man's stupidity. That's why I say they would (in reality) take over the farm.

I get what you're saying now-- well... I do get it better after I had a seriously loooooong talk with a friend of mine, before coming back and replying. (I'm a bit dense sometimes
)

Anyway.. *coughs*

I'm looking forward very much to the rest of S2. I also want to see what Rick ends up doing, and what Shane's reaction will be. It will be very interesting!


(Is it February yet??
)

It's a great show. Does anyone know when the complete second season will be released on dvd? I looked around online but couldn't find anything.

I agree, we need more Zombie stuff in a "Zombie Apocalypse"

I kinda like her....

I was on his side too until the Zombie Bait incident as well. He is still "That Guy" you'd want on your side in a fire fight. Just don't turn your back on him.


Sad about the little girl, but it was probably more realistic then miraculously finding her in the woods after many days.




Sad? Yes. But that plot twist dragged on way too long for my taste.


Hope the old guy sticks around longer (forgot his name) he's a cool cat and he brings levity and lightheartedness to an otherwise dire and grim situation. His personality is a needed component.





He caught onto Shanes deal long before anybody else and called him out on it while everybody else apparently was in la la land.




Also, hope the redneck doesn't get eaten any time soon... I expect there to be an eventual reunion with his bro. that might shake the group up some.





If his bro shows up I'm sure he'll want to exact some sort of revenge on the group.

Stay tuned.

Now shouldn't this thread now be called....

So we have what two more episodes in this season? I never thought about the rednecks (Daryls) brother coming back! What do you guys think, what if the redneck bro is with those outlaw jersey guys? Im pretty sure they will meet that gang of 30 armed thugs soon. Daryls brother could save the group from them, if he wants?

Also they should NOT have never taken that jersey kid with them, in my opinion hes dangerous for the group.

I was also with Shane until he shot Otis, since then he really started to get psyched out!


That last episode of this season will be a banger and will have us all mad and waiting for season 3!

I really got into the first season.

But this season just lacks everything.

It just doesnt have "It" anymore.

It has stalled.

I was just going to post the apposite.
I thought they picked up the ZOMBIE action {Like one would expect} in a Zombie Apocalypse. I avoided this thread because I had missed most of the new episodes and just today got all caught up so, maybe watching three in a row made it seem more interesting.

Shrugs shoulders and is happy with the show so far

Spoilers ahead, for those not caught up....


Well, I was sad to see the old guy go... That kind of sucked.

When the kid was there with the zombie, I really found myself rooting for the zombie. I was cheering him on. That kid has caused more damn trouble for the group...

Who the hell allows their kid to go wandering off by themselves in a zombie apocalypse anyhow?
Why not just tape a sign on his back saying, "All U Can Eat Brains!"

I love how they debated the fate of the prisoner. Once they fixed him up, they could have recruited him, but after the torture session, that option went out the _ Once again, Rick was too much of a wuss to make the right call, until it was too late, and just like previously, it bit him in the rear.

If I was there, I think I would have grabbed Shane, the Redneck, Glen, Maggie, and the blonde chick and left that suicidal group to it's own doom. Bound to be other farms nearby.

Don't read if you did not watch tonights episode....

WTF... They just killed off two main character! Wow, this is really getting good now. So I guess they all have the zombie virus. So no matter what if you die you return back as a zombie.

'bout time... they've been stationary for too long, complacency is not a good zombie-apocalypse survival trait.


ETA: Hopefully next season will introduce women who are not as annoying as the current cast of women!
