Walking Dead

879 posts in this topic

Me and my wife love this show and were very excited for lastnight's premiere! As much as I like this show, I couldn't help but notice 1 fatal flaw...last season 2 of the guys got rubbed up in zombie guts and walked among then, but when it started raining, the zombies could smell them immediately. So lastnight they all hide under cars and go completely unnoticed. Hmmm. Well, aside from that I still love the show!

I had never really watched the show before. Yesterday was a daylong couch outing and watched like 5 hours of the previous episodes and really liked it. So much that i was not as impressed with the first new episode compared to the old ones. Will be tuning in for more though!

I also watched season 1 on netflix. Gotta say that I really liked the show. They threw a few good twists and turns in there. It almost made me feel like I was just watching a movie instead of a tv show. I basically watched the first season in a few sittings.

JUst goes to show you don't have to tbe the fastest runner, just the faster than your buddy running away from the zombies... It helps to shoot your buddy to slow him down too. That was bad...

That was pretty bad! He could've at least shot him dead instead of letting the zombies eat him alive. I honestly think I would rather be burned alive than eaten by zombies.

JB... I am not sure either of those 2 are appealing?... But when the Zombie horde comes we will all remember to light you on fire first. JK

Love this show, but they are straying away from and coming back once in a while to the story lines from the book...

I set the DVR a week too late, so I watched eps 1-6 on Netflix, and have 8 through 10 or 11 recorded, but am missing 7! Hopefully there is a marathon soon. I can't find it anywhere online.

I know, I watched the first 6, I guess to be proper I should say season 2, episode 1 rather than episode 7.

Liked the 1st season better... kinda of getting frustrated that they are keeping waaaaayyyyy to many major story lines going at once here they are also getting beat up really bad. Kid shot, girl lost, ankle, pregnant, daryl hurt, guy cut his arm, love the comment by the old guy about its amazing you people survived this long...

I'll take a stab. He wants to save them, they are friends or neighbors that he wants to cure.

So apparently this farm house has an unlimited supply of chickens and guns. Would you really waste a valuable source of food on zombies? Also, gun training would be important, but saving the bullets would be more important. They were poppin' off rounds like there was no tomorrow! Where are is all this ammo coming from?

I thought the same thing. I can't imagine there's a Federal plant around pumping out ammo. I've been wondering why they don't hit a sporting goods shop for some bows or more crossbows. Those are quiet, and you can reclaim your projectile.

By not killing his "family" in the barn he is just being cruel. He is a strange guy though and really quite the fool. Why wouldn't you want them to stay? Safety in numbers!

I guess we are all thinking alike (wasting chickens & rounds, killing the walkers in the barn (next week it looks like), staying together on the farm). Rick didn't do a good job explaining what he saw at the CDC with Jenner. Those walkers aren't coming back unless veterinarian Herschel knows reincarnation.

Believing they are sick, not dead, must be how he is dealing with the whole zombie apocolyse thing... He is wrong but he also has the best place to stay... Not sure how he can MAKE them leave anyway?

How's that for conflict resolution? As always, more new questions than answers. It'll be a long wait till February.

Hershel was not straight about Sophia so everybody got wronged a little.

What I wanna know is....how was Sophia turned and not eatin? I mean I dont think a zombie would stop at just one bite and she doesn't seem feisty enough to fight one off.

Great point... that didn't make sense.

Talking Dead explained they wanted her to look as close to "normal" as they could and even shot one without her looking turned, which would have been a dreamlike sequence when she came at them...

I was really mad when she came out of the barn like that, but one way or another they solved the walkers in the barn issue.

Maybe Sophia drank the well water. I love the show. I was hoping they Would find Sophia and resolve that. What are they gonna do about Shane? Hes losing it. Great moment when Rick made the tough choice and shot Sophia. I am not surprised about the amt of ammo. Probably most of us have several thousand rounds. I have over a 1000 just in rimfire. I have 200 rounds in 10, 16, and 20ga an I dont own any of the three. I think a .22 would be a good gun for this. All you gotta do is put a hole in their head. Clean burning, reliable, accurate. No recoil, you can easy carry 500 rounds on your person. Dont even have to clean your guns. Just find a new one every so often.

Anyone hear on Talking Dead the one guy gave away a secret? About Herschel's wife getting shot in the mouth as a walker in the barn?

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
