I'm glad the 2 'new' guys didn't stick around. I was instantly annoyed with the fat guy's accent because I couldn't understand him. And the other guy had a white trash aura about him that reminded me of "that guy" at the bar that thinks he's Superman when he's had a few drinks.

Rick went into beast mode on them.

I hope he shoots his wife next Dizzy broad

Rick is about to go insane after semi being manipulated by his wife.

Not a bad episode last night. Still kinda slow, but things are picking up. The whole in town scene was pretty intense, though the drama between rick-lorie-shane is getting pretty tiresome. Hopefully rick and shane shoot it out next week

I see season 2 ending like that. A stand off, like I'm gonna shoot no I am type deal, and a gun shot and then black screen. Boom end of season 2.

Then start of season 3 will be like Shane shooting at a zombie by Rick or something dumb.

I have found it a little hard to sit through some of the Glenn + farm chic sexual tension scenes. Good to see Rick finally getting an edge about him. My gf hates Shane, but frankly he's probably the more practical of the two IMO.

Shane's the most practical, as long as you're not on the wrong end of being alone with him when walkers show up I just caught the new one on DVR so I'm all caught up. Hopefully Rick gets more of an edge about him. I can't see them staying on the farm for 9 months for a baby to be born.

How's that kid going to be walking in a week after getting his leg ripped off that fence??

Because we're being lead to believe that Herschel is a miracle worker.

I've found myself becoming quite annoyed with quite a few of the characters. At this point, I don't think I have a rooting interest (for lack of a better description) for any of the remaining characters on the show.

Lori = I wanted that walker to bust through the windshield and snack on her face.

Dale = Just shut up, old man.

Andrea = The "badass chick" role doesn't suit you. Let's go back to Season 1 where you wanted to off yourself, but this time, go right ahead.

Herschel = Drink more. You're semi-interesting that way.

Darryl = You can't act. Leave the show.

Maggie = I wish this show was on Cinemax.

Glenn = I want to see "Badass" Glenn. Enough of this "Token Asian Kid" Glenn. Grow a set.

Zombie Otis = Where are you???

lol @ Zombie Otis.

I really liked this weeks episode. Brought alot of issues to the surface, and some more zombie killing.

Agreed, the women must die.

I am also fine with the women dying on the show.

"get rid of all the women".... jeez, you guys would have an interesting post-apocalypse strategy. It would be either a total sausage-fest or you'd have to entertain yourselves with a new genre of zombie porn.

Although I will admit...

The female characters on this show are either really poorly developed or just really, really annoying.

I think the show is trying to appeal to both genders. They have the blood and gore action sequences with the zombies for the men and then they have the quintessential soap-opera fantasy storyline for the female viewers (ie. the 'omg, I'm a middle-aged pregnant woman and all these men are fighting over me! which alpha male shall I choose?" It's the perfect foil to guarantee viewers.

I think that other than Shane, everyone else is just so damned *nice*. They need to introduce more shady villains to the mix... therefore I hope they keep the guy who had the fence-spear through his leg alive and be allowed to join farm-ville.

I'd also like to see Andrea with a better storyline - that character has potential but they're just not using her very well.

Agreed. Shoot her in the leg as they're running from walkers. Use her as zombie bait.

I was thinking of her more for the Zombie Porn.

Technically all they need is a good supply of ball-gags to block all the teeth gnashing. And they're already good with all the moaning and groaning.

Well, I will say that I was with you up until that last part. My vote would be to eat the burger...not the buns. But that's just me.

The first season was great.The second season ruined it for me.The acting is pretty terrible and I don't know why or how but this is probably the only show i've ever watched where every character could die and i'd be satisfied,minus Darryl because he's pretty badass.Maybe i'll pick it back up in the future.But for now The Wire,Mad Men and Breaking Bad is all really need.It went from awesome Zombie show to male soap opera.I mean did Ricks wife really need to piss on that preggers test in the field.........I guess Bathrooms aren't private enough ?

Funny you say that about Darryl. I actually think he's the worst actor on the show.

I am starting to read the comics. I am already on #11 and the comics are vastly different from the tv show. One example being is Dale has sex with Andrea. Another is Shane gets shot and killed by Carl very early on.

Maybe it's because he was the only actor i knew from anything previously.He was one of the boondock saints.But the women IMO are all annoying and pretty terrible actors.Either way agree to disagree i guess.But the show went downhill after the first season just my take.I know a shitload of people who watch and i jumped on the bandwagon and then was dissapointed in season 2.Regardless i guess most people watch just for the hope and survival factor which nothing wrong with that.

I also liked the first season better, but I think it was because of the characters situation. In the first season, you got the sense that these people were hanging on by a thread with no where to go and no hope, and could be ripped to shreads at any moment (which they were in that one episode).

This season, they've found a home and are all settled, so the soap opera drama has picked up. Which is a mistake imo. The whole appeal of the show wasnt drama, it was zombie killing action! They need to get back to that.

I did like this week's episode though.

I have been disappointed with Season 2 so far, although the last few episodes are starting to pick up, albeit slowly.

Funny I actually saw that one coming.

I thought there was a lot of obvious foreshadowing in the last couple of episodes.

Dale's death was disappointing as I really liked his character, but it seems like it needed to happen in order to maintain the group's cohesion.

Ya, and not even a Zombie Dale because they shot him

Rest of the episode was boring as hell again.
