They should be soon. I think the party is headed for a split as well.

Good to hear, as long as they leave the farm...or kill the old guy. Both work for me.

Walking dead is overhyped. Nothing new in the story.

Breaking bad didn't deserve it's budget cut because of this show.

Really good news.

Seems like there are two groups of people:
1) People that enjoy the show and the psychology of whats going on with the characters and how they are changing because of the situations they're placed in.
2) People that watch the show, then complain about it because 1000 zombies didn't die from RPG fire every episode.

The Walking Dead was not the reason for Braking Bad's budget cut, Mad Men was.

As for shows, Walking Dead is not that bad compared to some of the other shows AMC has done/is doing.

Well the very end of the show last night was really cool. I tripped out and thought I was watching Justified for a couple of seconds.

Those two fellas did mention they were with other people. My guess would be the weren't the worst of the group they're with...

lol.. I couldn't help but laugh at that scene. Just felt so staged.. like, it just didn't fit naturally. It didn't make sense that she'd be in such a rush to go to town and bring him back. He knew that girl collapsed and that he needed to bring Herschel back asap.

I guess you could put me in the middle. I enjoy the character interactions, but I also want to know what is going on in the world as well.

To me last night's episode felt perfectly in line with the rest of the current season.
That's not really a good thing though. The story seems to be moving along at a snails pace, with the exception of the showdown at the bar, which was pretty bad-ass.

For the life of me I don't get why Lori felt the need to "go get" Rick and Glenn. Did she think they were going to spend the night in town or something? It was a really crappy set-up for the car crash.

I hope the story picks up a bit and I hope it has something to do with the friends of the two guys Rick shot dead at the bar.

Wohoo, that's great news.

I pretty much liked the episode as well, a bit too much talking and too little zombie killing action but still good episode.

Just can't wait to see what's next when they leave the farm.

That's bound to happen anytime soon, I hope?

I loved the ending of last week's episode. Gotta say that Rick is the man.

The character development in the series has been quite good, but I'm mystified by at least one character's actions. Unless Dale has gone entirely around the bend I can't think of any explanation for his attempt to hide the weapons. I figure he's going down shortly.

I figure the next episode will be the make-or-break for their time on the farm. Glad to see the renewal for season 3!

The last episode was great, very entertaining. Rick always seems driven to do the right thing in the right way. One day that may come to bite him (no pun intended).


Did you see the look on his face when his Wife was talking to him in the tent?

Did you see Maggie zip past her father and go right to Glenn,....?

Octavean, I laughed when she did that! Soo much disrespect! lol

Great episode this week. The first half was pretty intense with the gun fight and all the walkers coming out of no where

I bought Volume 1 of The Walking Dead, "Days Gone Bye”. Its great, very similar but different at the same time. Excellent stuff, now I want the entire collection.

Thought last night's episode was pretty good. Good amount of action.

Really hoped they would have left Shane behind. Even more so considering the preview of next week. I am still curious what they will do with the kid they have picked up (and tried to dump off). The whole suicide thing was kinda odd imo. And where was Hershel the whole time? Finally, is that walker (that was in the field) headed to the farm?

I don’t know what they were trying to say with that specific walker in the field.

For me though, it brought on thoughts of the tortoise and the hare. Rick and Shane speeding past that field walker twice doesn’t mean it wont catch-up to them while they are sleeping or at some other inopportune moment.

If you consider the suicide angle of the show this week, you start to see a theme of hopelessness based on the enormity of what they are up against. That lone walker in the field may have been intended to symbolize that they can’t just wipe out the threat,…any more then we could eliminate everything we consider to be a threat today (rats, roaches, extremists, criminals and so on).
