    Such a good ep tonight. Face rip zombie may tie for the most gruesome shot of the night with American Dad's yak sliding downhill kibbling.

    I'm not buying in...yet. It was an ok episode, but it was kinda 'give the people what they want' to the point of pandering. You want to show me something...have Lori have to make her way back to camp. And more of the same Rick vs Shane/Herschell crap, like the hunt for Sophia...it's wearing thin. Best part of the episode was Carol facing off on Darryl and standing there while he said horrible things to her...all out of love and hurt. Now that was good stuff.

    No, the zombie ripping his own face off to get at Lori was the best part.

    But I get what you're saying.

    Solid episode for TWD, but I think I have reset my expectations for this show. I don't think we're going to be treated to a long story arc with some kind of strong payoff in the end. Because of the nature of the show, I think we'll see a consistent set of episodes that try to balance action with plot development. The best type of TV dramas are able to balance both, and make the action a payoff for the viewer that invested in the plot development. It seems they were able to do that in the first half of the season, but I expect to see a more "contained episode" approach play out for the second half.

    Still a very good piece of TV entertainment, but I don't think it rates up there with series like Mad Men and Breaking Bad.

    I have to agree and the dude who Herschell shot getting torn up by walkers was pretty gruesome too. TWD is one of my favs at the moment.

    Concur with jersey on the Carol/Darryl interplay. She is a changed woman and is going to stand her ground to men now. I think the last flinch kind of set Darryl straight and he is going to stop being such a whiny b!@$ and get back to helping really lead the group.

    This week looks interesting and if you have seen the advanced clip, for those who have read the books, it appears they are arriving at the next big impact point in the series. From scenes prior to the season beginning in the fall it appeared they would be arriving at this place this season so I have been very interested in seeing how that plays out.

    There was some good stuff on Talking Dead. They seemed to think that there may be some 'survivor romantic tension' between Carol/Darryl. Not sure I buy that. I think they both just need someone and I felt so much for her for the first time ever when she flinched. I was kinda feeling like the show could lose her and not skip a beat. Now, no way. The 'if he died, who would care' award goes to T-Dog. Useless.
    Also they discussed Lori's manipulation of Rick. And that look on his face. I think Rick is undecided but they seemed to think that Rick was not only aware of his wife's machinations, but that he also decided to 'end' Shane. We shall see. I don't think they are going to sacrifice that alpha male storyline just yet.

    .

    The show has problems with pacing and character development, though it still is entertaining.

    You have to balance the action with character progression, and even coming from someone who typically prefers the character aspect over the "blow stuff up" one, there's just entirely too much time spent on moping characters just sitting around talking or otherwise doing nothing.

    I think the two best characters, in my humble opinion, are Glenn and Darryl but between Glenn's horribly hackneyed "I froze up out there because of what you said to me BAWWWWW DONT TOUCH ME" act and Darryl's personality being so volatile that it fails the whole suspension-of-disbelief thing.......they lose whatever "momentum" they built up in previous episodes. Darryl as "douche with a heart of gold" worked well, but now it seems to be back to "one-dimensional douche" because he had an imaginary conversation with his brother?

    I get what they're trying to do, but it seems like all that time spent on Darryl being the "good guy" looking for Sophia and comforting Carol was wasted. I hope roenick is right on this front, and there's some actual payoff for the rawr-I'm-angry-for-some-reason hissy fits.


    And yeah, the face rip was awesome.
