    Now that I'm finally caught up on Walking Dead...

    Yeah, the Sophia thing needs to come to a conclusion now. I understand the need to build certain things, like the relationship between Glen and Maggie and to make the inevitable confrontation over the barn explosive as heel, and the other character bits, but at this point it's just a little tired.

    Having said that, I am still totally in love with this show. I just hope that this mid-season finale finally brings these things to a head.

    I need to watch the full HoW epi. Had kid's stuff going last night and only saw last 15 mins. Bohannon is a character I am really intrigued by but like you jd the pathetic writing is leading me to pass on this show ... like the British widow as well but have no idea where that is going ...
    Yeah see, that's where HoW has me stymied. It's like they took almost every conceiveable western cliche, tossed in some well developed characters and forgot to give them anything even remotely convincing/dramatic to do. Absolutely NOTHING new here, which would be ok if they weren't just trying to get by on the minimal plot line with ridiculous developments to keep it moving. And really, just how much story can they wring out of the 'man with no name looking for vengeance' plot. I find myself not really caring although I do like the Bohannon character despite the inertia of the story. Could be soooooo much better.

    One of The Walking Dead Could Be ... Walking? | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central

    Maybe those fan-made images of "The Walking Dead" cast we posted earlier today were a bit prophetic as it turns out one member of the cast was ready to leave after the Darabont controversy. So where does that leave this person now?

    According to TVLine the backstage drama all started when series creator Frank Darabont was ousted. A whole lotta people were upset, especially one person, so much so that he/she asked to be released from his/her contract. But, according to the site, a funny thing happened between the time the request was made and when it was potentially granted - a change of heart.

    Now this member of the ensemble wants to stay. But it may be too late. TVLine's sources don’t know for sure at this point whether the character is going to be written off although one insider insists he/she ultimately got their wish.

    So who do you think it was/is? The general consensus is that it’s either Jeffrey DeMunn (Dale) or Laurie Holden (Andrea) since both of them have worked extensively with Darabont. Our guess is Dale, which is why they have Andrea teaming up with Shane. Hope that's not the case though. We need the Tainted Meat scene!
    Keep in mind all of this could be just leaked info to generate buzz/chatter. But if it is true...gotta be Dale.

    Yeah but where does this leave the comic book storyline of Shane?? Not sure I am into this but of course they screwed the pooch when they let Darabont go IMHO anyway ...

    Yeah, I think it's all a rewrite as far as Kirkman is concerned. From this point I can fully see them veering FAR off the printed page.

    Hell on Wheels. Hurm. Ok, I guess I am sticking with it till AMC pulls the plug(haven't seen the ratings) despite ALMOST deleting it before the opening titles. I mean he found an AUTOGRAPHED photo seemingly of all the people who killed his wife in the ex-foreman's belongings. I still can't figure that. It's not like it was a high school yearbook photo they all signed with their first names and 'see you next year'...it had last names and ranks. Ok, so maybe the foreman he killed wrote on it to remember who was who in the picture...but this show hasn't earned that level of suspension of disbelief. And Colm Meaney keeps trying to break into a one-man show. The scene in the rail car where he read the teletype out loud, and continued to ruminate to himself out loud...YET still I am going to keep watching. There is something here under the crap writing. The new whore who was 'rescued' from the Indians, the Christian-ized former savage...color me optimistic.

    I am a sucker for a character as well. Like I said I like Bohannon and the English widow. I still had a hard time believing she really loved the map maker but she must have for some reason. The concept for the show is really good but the writing and some of the acting is just ... MEH.

    I will give it another week but I am not sure how much more I can go. The only other part I don't like is the "modernization" of the story/presentation. It almost feels like it is an 1800's show produced in the 22nd century if you know what I mean - they are not being true to the time period of the show.

    Yeah well it is a general fault that I think can be attributed that the creators had a decent idea that they either didn't take the time to research and flesh out or they are just inept. It keeps feeling like they are trying to drum up some drama as it rolls downhill so I am going to stick it out, I like what works enough to keep hope alive.
