AMC's The Walking Dead [Spoilers!]

Did you watch?

For a show on a non premium cable channel, I thought it was very good. I never read the comic, so I don't know how it compares, but I'll be watching every Sunday. pisses me off that I don't get AMC in HD though.

Question. Buy season by season? Or wait for a series box set when all is said and done?
The bluray box sets are great. Extra scenes plus cool extras make it worth the cost.

Lol you would want to pounce. Yea we dont do Netflix, but even so with a show this awesome...it's worthy of my money for a box set.
True. I said the same things when I loved Lost, and I've barely busted out my Blu-Rays, especially with it all on Netflix.

Sigh. I have come to the realization that I rarely watch any of my Blu-Rays.

That is just a problem with movies in general, haha. We are the same way.

We set the DVR to record the whole marathon this week and plan on watching it through again. My wife busted out some trivia...why was Rick in the Hospital? But, not knowing those answers for certain are why we will watch them again.

I plan to wait for a full box set, limited edition. When something is really enjoyed, we have no problem spending the money to show our approval. Letting our dollars vote!

I couldnt pull the trigger on the cool S2 special edition box. Coolest SE box set I've ever seen.

On a side note, how much do we think Kettle One pays for their product placement in the backgroun? Whats the rum/whiskey? Looks like Captain Morgan.
I'm talking about behind the couch on Talking Dead.

You and your wife need to move to Indy. I have a feeling we would all get along just great.

Yeah, my movie purchasing slowed down a lot 7-8 years ago. Now I mostly only buy something I know I'll watch every 1-3 years, or something I haven't seen that's cheap enough that I don't mind if I only watch it once.

Anyone notice the wheels on the car magically went back to an OEM wheel from the big chrome ones as Merle was getting out of it and letting it roll with the zombies in tow at the meeting place with the Governor?

Did you notice the fletching on Daryl's bolts went from Green to Blue in the bridge over the Yellow Jacket scene from a couple episodes back?



Not really...but that sounds like a great trivia question, haha. LMAO

I mean, it's not really a spoiler.. Rick and Shane were giving chase to a car in the pilot episode, and the car hit a ditch and overturned. Shot and killed two armed men, and thinking the car empty, Rick turns to face Shane. A third man emerges from the car, nails Rick in the side with a round, and one of the officers kills the gunman. Rick then ends up in the hospital, and (I believe) slips into a coma.

Definitely caught that as well! A shame, usually they're so spot-on scene to scene, but they missed this one.

I did it as a spoiler to make yourself 'think' about it before you read the trivia answer. As soon as you mentioned 'a car' it all came back to me! haha

We want to know things like, do these people bathe? Do they eat? They never show anyone cooking/preparing food. You never see night scenes in the prison. Do they sleep? Are there candles? Why wouldn't there be electricity in the zombie apocalypse? How come that baby never cries? What are Glenn and Maggie doing for birth control? Do they know what day/month/year it is? Why do they all dress like sh*t? There are brand new clothes in most of the stores.

Inquiring minds want to know. laugh out loud

They removed her voice box? You can 'teach' / condition a baby to never cry...but some babies are just really good.

Called my sister over lunch to talk TWD and she brought that up. She thinks Maggie is going to be preggo soon. She also pointed out how much work they went through (and almost died) for the condoms at that one general store and now they are all just "Hey, here is a dark corner, lets do it...I've got a big black protection I call my glock"

The only meal I can remember is when Andrea and Michone were heating up beans. They used to show dinner at the farm house all the time, IIRC.

They don't shower because Shane used up all the hot water in the world to cut his hair.

A poster here said Maggie TIITB so Glen has no worries of knocking her up. Not sure if that info is from the Talking Dead of some other source.

Wow...you are inquisitive.
  • Rarely bathe (there is running water but no time to sit still to take a shower or bath)
  • Food is mostly in cans and raw unless they kill something like rabbit how Daryl did in Season 1.
  • Yes they sleep but not well.
  • Sucks about the night scenes, they should
  • With the number of accidents, chewed cords, power surges, and no one to implement or maintain a power grid, it's not shocking there is no power throughout. Who knows how many power transformers and relays have blown since D-Day.
  • Birth control? laugh out loud Timing out her cycle very very carefully and crossing fingers? A better question is if they aren't washing off their nether regions, then would you really want to have any form of sex? EEK!
  • I don't think they do. Mostly they gauge things by season and just kind of take it from there. I don't think they know exactly what time/date is anymore and who knows what clock is accurate these days.
  • All the good clothes are surrounded by zombies in Atlanta.

The date thing was mentioned in the comics fairly early on, when someone figured it would be around Christmas, IIRC.

I'm waiting for the series. For me it's about the money. With season 1 being only 6 episodes & season 2 only 13, and season box sets cost the same as shows with 20 episodes. Most of the cost is in the packaging, so it should be cheaper for the entire series set.

He does have a new crossbow. It debuted 2(?) episodes back when Rick & The Governor met. I notice the weapons on the show. laugh out loud Confirmed here (approx 3:00): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fi2TQZXPFmM
I guess a crossbow looks cooler, but I still say a compound bow is more practical. Crossbows are a pain in the butt to load/re-load, at least mine is.
