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.

While I am glad that Glenn is not dead, I do think the showrunners screwed up royally with this one. They purposefully screwed with the fans on this one. It was a total dick move on their part.

i believe i had that one, vis-a-vis Glenn. glad to see that lame fakeout cliffhanger is over, but the way they set up the matching of him and Enid makes me thing they're going to be by themselves for a while. seems like they should rush in and help with the breach, but it just feels to me like Glenn is going to try to rehabilitate someone again. after what happened to Nicholas, Enid might be better off bitter and lonely. also, a side note: apparently having a person's corpse covering roughly 20% of your body, not including your head or legs, is enough to keep a crowd of walkers from biting you for 10-20 seconds. good to know.

this week was the one for a properly executed, GoT-like "eff you" to the audience. as soon as Carol saw the wolf in the locked townhouse, i would have been perfect to have her simply shoot Morgan in the face in front of Denise. it would have been totally unexpected (especially after the extended backstory episode) and totally in character, as well as putting Rick in a place where he has to decide if she's valuable enough to abide the occasional unauthorized murder/corpse-burning.

speaking of Morgan: you have to exile him, right? he confirmed the people he let go literally shot at Rick right afterward, and once it comes out he's been harboring an enemy who shows no signs of repentance, he's simply too much of a risk to keep around. give him some food and all that, but he's the last guy i'd want fighting next to me.

very odd choice to keep the armory down the hall from the infirmary and not having it secured outside of trusting Denise checks it regularly. if Carl gets out of this (and if he doesn't, i can't wait to see evil/unhinged Rick again!), he should really learn to lay off the smugness when teaching someone who might hate him how to use a firearm.

That was so mind-numbingly intentional that it was painful to watch.

I'm not surprised that nobody wants to talk about that underwhelming finale. Ugh.

yeah, the only "significant" loss was Deanna, but she's been sitting on a hollow throne since Reg died. one person in each separated group despaired, and another person in that group comforted them. Ron sucks at killing people as much as Morgan sucks at keeping people alive. row townhouses appear to be much better at resisting hordes of undead than standalone neo-Victorians, which actually does make some sense. Morgan's life creed is a extreme, overly-simplified ideology with deadly real-world implications, but anyone with two brain cells to rub together already knew that.

was the "fight" between Carl and Ron the sissiest one you've ever seen? considering there was a shovel, a gun, and several gardening/metalworking tools available, the fact no blood was spilled is inexcusable.

it drives me crazy how the writers completely throw away character traits for short-term payoffs. the worst one in this episode was Maggie (a veteran of the prison, Woodbury, Terminus, and dozens of wild walker fights) falling over herself walking away from the encroaching biters and losing all coordination climbing the ladder. but hey, it bought fifteen seconds of suspense that nobody truly believed.

episodes like this reinforce to me that the only reason i keep watching is to be able to talk about the show with a few friends.

Couple more "mom?"s and most of the problems are resolved.


And 15'? Who -wouldn't- have taken the shot?

i think i would be considered quite the prick were i to find myself in Alexandria. telling the kid to pretend he's brave is the same as admitting he's too cowardly to deal with life's (albeit extreme) problems. they're teaching him to be weak and avoid the exact kinds of difficult choices he has to make to stay alive, and i'm thinking that's going to come to roost pretty quickly. i would have dragged him downstairs after the attack (after cleaning up the wolf entrails) kicking and screaming to show him things were just the same down there as well.

hey, Carl started out roughly Sam's age, and while it took watching a bunch of people he loved die and shooting his mother in the face, he seems to be making it OK. sure, he had that bloodlust stage, but seriously, show me a teenage boy in puberty who doesn't go aggro every once in while.

They're abandoning a town with running water and electricity and one bad section of wall instead of leading the walkers away with a car horn *like they just did a few episodes prior*?

You're talking Tara & Rosita, right? No doubt they could have made the shot, hell Eugene could have probably made it.

Iagree Apparently Maggie being pregnant has made her unable to fight, and possibly unable run? I was watching that thinking "I used to love Maggie, now they are turning her into a little bitch". I swear her accent changed this season too, obviously she isn't actually southern but it seems to be a bit more over the top like rick's this season.

On another note, can someone go ahead and kill off sam and his horrible music and whining already?!? Please

I was hoping for the same thing...

As soon as he opened his mouth at the end calling for his mother I wanted some zombie to shut him up for good.

Yeah, they should have ended it last week instead. It would have been better leaving the viewers hanging when the wall collapsed and Maggie seeing Glenn's balloon signal.

That "mom" thing, I can see her turning around and bitch slapping or maybe Rick capping him. He's got judith and Carl to protect
