I haven't seen the season two premiere yet, but I'm probably in the minority: I think that "The Walking Dead" is good, but not as rapturously great as a lot of folks claim that it is. It is tremendously well done--very cinematic and stylish--but it is like putting old wine in new bottles. There isn't a whole lot here that wasn't covered first and better by Romero in his zombie films or Zack Snyder's "Dawn" remake and the "28 Days/Weeks Later" films, which themselves were also old wine in new bottles. The fundamental problem is that it's all been pretty much done with zombies--they attack, you run/get bitten/shoot them in the head, repeat... Romero's films took that concept the whole way from simple survival to a new class structure in society. What else is there? "The Walking Dead" is a lot of fun, and the KNB f/x are especially excellent, but it's hardly a groundbreaking series, except, perhaps, to those who haven't seen the classic progentitors.

Those are some great points you've made, and it's true that zombies can only do so much. But I feel that the great zombie movies are great because they aren't necessarily about the zombies. For example, the Romero films have a lot to say about the society at the time, and even the new Romero films like Diary of the Dead had it's own thing to say about people living their lives on camera.

I'm enjoying the Walking Dead because I want to get to know these people and how they react to the situations they are placed in. Right now, it seems to me that Herschel is likely a lot more dangerous to them than the Walkers themselves. It's the humanity that brings life to a story of the dead.

I hope that made sense!!

Devolution here,

I tend to agree on many relevant points made about this show. In no order...

1) More Zombie Death- in the last three shows there were maybe five total zombies. Zzz xxxxx.

2) Forget the girl, we have waited 5 episodes for a doll?!?!?!?she's dead. She's screwed. (Did I leave the iron on?)

3) Tie up loose ends from Season One, come on now!

We are DEVO

Oh but Devo, what deaths they were! The zombie from the well that tore in two in glorious technicolor! Totally worth risking Glenn's life.

I also loved the shot on the zombie that Daryl shot through the face. I haven't read the comics but I can easily imagine that coming directly from the comic.

But yeah, Sophia's a goner. The sooner they get away from Herschel the better.

Some great character development, and again....pick up the pace.....they even showed excessive footage of Daryl climbing up the mountain....get up or stay down already!!!

I like Glenn's new girlfriend Maggie.....she's cute!

Gotta disagree with DEVO and Stitch....that girl is still alive you two!

I agree Ronnie.....with episode six, that means the season is half over already?! The show seems to have all the necessary ingredients....just not mixing them properly!

The lady that plays Maggie was in a full season of another show I watch...Vampire Diaries. She's wayyy cuter on Walking Dead... more natural looking,..love her haircut on the show!

The show is going on it's winter break, right?

*spoiler*
Do you guys think what happened with Otis, will eventually come out?

I think there is one more episode, then a break util January I believe....they better speed things up!

*spoiler*

I think so Ronnie...I'm guessing Shane first tells Lori in a plight to magnify his love for her and Carl....wild guess....we'll see.

Also, *spoiler* at the end of the last episode when Lori tells Rick about her and Shane, it has him semi understanding, and seemingly cool with it all.....as if.....I think he's paraphrasing what she said and processing...then he'll blow his top at the beginning of the next episode!! [Eek!]

They need to leave Hershel's farm like right now! He does not want them there-
and the
**spoiler** creatures in the barn would scare me enough to want to get the heck out of there!
Ronnie, the girl who plays Maggie is really pretty and I love that haircut too. Makes me want to have straight hair even more [Frown]

Go for it Pitts, go out and buy yourself a hair straightener!
I've had one for a few years now, for when I want that "just got out of bed look" - it takes a lot of hard work to look natural!!

***spoilers***

They sure did wait til the very last 5 minutes to show us something! The group fighting at the beginning was intense. Everyone had a valid point, I thought.

Even though I was accidently spoiled of the mid season finale, I was still heartbroken by that final scene.

Great episode....great ending. Probably should have figured the ending out, but somehow didn't...which was good, as it led to a great surprise at the end. Can't wait to see where they take us next....

I have one- I just don't use it all the time, and when my hair is shorter, it is really super curly. I like it longer cuz it's easier for me to style.

I really was not suprised by the mid-season finale. I just hope they get moving off of the farm now.

Agree with Pitts and Ronnie .. it is time to leave that freakin' farm in the dust! Great beginning episode of season 2 and mid-season finale ending was excellent... however, most of the stuff besides Daryl has been boring for me.

Just to keep everyone updated .. new episodes start up again on Sunday Feb. 12th at 9pm EST!

For anyone who might be interested...

AMC will be airing The Walking Dead marathon, beginning from the pilot episode, all of season one, through to the midseason finale from this season on New Years Eve. Good time to catch up! [Smile]

AMC recently announced that The Walking Dead Season 3 will consist of 16 episodes instead of 13 as originally announced. This Season (Season 2) consists of 13 episodes which is a 7 episode improvement over Season One’s 6 episode run. There is no word yet on when Season 3 will premiere or if Season 3 will be seperated into two parts with a mid season hiatus or not.

In other news, Glen Mazzara, Robert Kirkman, and the show’s writers have said that they don’t know what caused the zombie outbreak and they prefer to keep it that way.

Note to writers .. freakin' get Rick & the gang off that farm! Like now [Mad]

Val, you sort of lost me in the first half of that post haha. It's a good thing you put it in writing, otherwise I'd forget everything you said! Ha! [Big Grin]

Haha also in other news.. just watched the Lady Gaga video for "Judas" and saw Norman Reedus (Daryl) in it, as a biker. Exciting stuff! [Wink]

Less than 1 month before it returns!

The ending with Sophie didn't happen in the books-according to a friend that's read them. Like him or not, Herschel's reaction to his "people" getting killed was so real-I could feel the pain!

According to IMDB Norman Reedus modeled for Prada, has a son with Helena Christensen, and has a titanium eye socket!
