    C'mon, JD. How do you know that was on Kirkman?!

    Tank is completely unnecessary since the prison walls are already collapsing, but I guess they had to include it to please comic readers.

    At this point it's like that Justified quote "If you run into an ******* in the morning, you ran into an *******. If you run into *******s all day, you're the *******." We have been through four showrunners so far. The ONLY constant has been Kirkman. Could be wrong, but somehow I think whenever someone wants to improve on his(and this is not the first time I have said it) mediocre comic, he exerts his pull. Hence the iconic tank scene being foreshadowed. Maybe he doesn't want to get shown up, maybe he wants the show to help sell his comic, or maybe he is just a tremendous pain in the ass. Find it hard to believe that Gimple had done such a bang up job so far only to revert to the retarded pissing contest that has become the Governor vs Rick.

    But there's no way to know what's going on behind the scenes. From everything I've read, it seems like Kirkman is little more than a consultant. And he clearly can't have too much issue with them going off book. Maybe the tank being there is more of a nod to the comics than someone trying to iron fist something in.

    Dunno...maybe. But SOMEONE is hitting the FIRE button, and if not him, then who. Sure, chalk Darabont up to execs because he is cantankerous and apparently fought them tooth and nail. But it keeps happening. I have to blame somebody. Anyway, I hope it works out because I really think this half season has been the best the show has been since...

    Maybe, if the Gov has his way, the crew will be back on the road again. Maybe it's time for Rick to stop being a farmer. Read some interesting theories concerning the flu and the Gov., we will see if there is anything too that(remember the rats). Anyway, i really hope they don't just go back to playing army and killing characters simply to generate drama.

    I will say this ... if they don't explain who was supplying the rats (i.e. if it wasn't the Gov or they don't tell us) then they really have jumped the shark!

    If anything, the governor had too much motivation. First they set up the whole non-subtle double meaning chess match where he says that you have to make your move at some point, then he goes and kills Martinez in a sudden fury because he doesn't want to be pushed into being co-leader. Which is it? From there, everything made perfect sense at least. He escapes being leader but then sees that the new leader is too weak to keep everyone safe, so he tries to flee with his new family. That doesn't work out with the muddy zombie road, so he goes back and he has to take over to ensure his family will be kept safe.

    The government was a sociopath last season, he was a sociopath a week ago, and he was a sociopath last night. A week ago there wasn't anyone he needed to murder to get what he wanted.

    The rats almost certainly can't have anything to do with the governor, so that kind of makes it more mysterious. Maybe it has to do with whoever killed the people in the small camp, although I thought that might have been the governor, who then went back to the other guys and pretended he found them all dead.

    See that's the thing...he was shouting he didn't want it while killing Martinez(who I felt really really bad for). Only to go right back into homicidal megalomania mode with a side trip through the zombies of Boggy Creek. I really was liking Brian Herriot.

    [TV] AMC Announces Two New Series: "Galyntine" and "Knifeman" -

    AMC today announced that it had ordered two pilots, “Galyntine” and “Knifeman,” both of which will be produced by AMC Studios in 2014 for consideration for series for 2015.

    “Galyntine” is a wholly-original vision rooted in a both fantasy/action adventure and science-fiction. Our pilot takes place at a time after a cataclysmic technology-induced disaster has resulted in a new society that has eschewed any form of technology. This catastrophic event leaves small numbers of survivors scattered around the planet and forced to adapt to isolation and unique challenges. Galyntine will explore a post-apocalyptic world in which humanity has evolved – with some strange detours. Galyntine is a man’s journey of discovery through a changed world and its mysterious people. The project is written by Jason Cahill (Halt and Catch Fire, Fringe, Surface, Profiler) and executive produced by Cahill and Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead, This Is The End, Oz The Great And Powerful, Transformers). David Zucker and Ridley Scott will also executive produce through Scott Free’s (The Good Wife, Numb3rs) first-look deal with AMC.

    Set in 18th century London, “Knifeman” will focus on the untold story of a charming, arrogant, decorum-breaking genius who challenges societal norms to transform his visions into cutting-edge discoveries. A surgeon or “barber” in a time when blood-letting and praying was the norm, John Tattersal is a hard drinking, hard living man not afraid to push the boundaries of modern medicine, even if it takes digging up a few graves to do it. While he makes his living running an unlicensed operating theatre out of his residence, he picks up extra cash harvesting organs for his brother Julian, favorite son and prized physician of the St. Stephen’s teaching hospital. Knifeman is a fast paced, entertaining romp filled with emotion, tackling dark themes with a biting wit. The pilot was written by Rolin Jones (United States of Tara, Friday Night Lights, Weeds, Low Winter Sun) and developed by Jones and Ron Fitzgerald (Last Resort, Prime Suspect, United States of Tara, Friday Night Lights, Weeds), both of whom will serve as executive producers. Media Rights Capital (House of Cards), Josh Donnen and Robert Zotnowski are also executive producers. Knifeman is inspired by the biography of John Hunter by Wendy Moore, “The Knife Man: Blood, Body Snatching and the Birth of Modern Surgery”.
    Hurm...ok. Let's see...
