That Season 4 sneak preview that was on last night (or at least that my DVR recorded last night) was kind of good.

One thing to note - at least from the way they edited the clips, it looks like there will be much more diversity in the cast this season. Of course it's possible the several new black faces in the preview will just be characters they can kill off, but I'll bet they have listened to some of the comments/complaints of viewers about the show being too "white."

Yes R23, that was mentioned in the two Season 3 threads last year. Michonne and Andrea certainly came off like a couple. In fact Michonne practically acted like a jilted lover all season because Andrea decided to stay with the Governor.

Too bad the writers ruined the Andrea character. They wrote themselves into a corner and the character had to pay the ultimate price.

I stopped watching. I really don't care about the characters anymore. The writers turn characters into blithering idiots, then kill them off. I never gave a shit about Sofia. The prison is a drag. The squabble between Woodbury and the prison seemed forced and the "war" was silly. The guv wiping out his people was ridiculous. He needs people to work for him.

So here's the deal -- zombies; people arguing within their group; groups arguing with each other. Lather, rinse, repeat. I don't find the characters at all dynamic. Rick just sweats and looks nervous, Carl needs a smack up the head, Michonne is a near-mute black ninja woman, Daryl is The Redneck and Carol is the Short Haired One. Herschel has daughters whose names I can barely remember. There's the blonde and the one who sleeps with Glenn.

That's not interesting. Last season wasn't interesting. The season at the farm wasn't interesting. There's really no place to go from here. Squalor and squabbling. And the zombies have become a nuisance, like a roach infestation.

LOL R38, I couldn't have said it better myself! When the last season ended, I thought, yeah, that's it. There's nowhere the story can go from here. What can they really write about?

Also, Rick has a flat ass. How can the main character of the show have a fucking flat ass and then they still show profile shots? Cmon. I loved him in Love, Actually, but this show, with his poor accent and worse acting, has turned me off to the guy.

The hotties are Glen and Darryl, for sure. Norman Reedus is not a bad actor. But even they can't keep my interest if the writing is going to suck.

There are no homosexual characters in the show because the AIDS had already killed all of them as punishment for their sins of sodomy before it all took place. The whole zombie apocalypse was brought on by the scourge homosexuality anyway (the Lord's punishment, you know), so that is the gay's legacy as far as the story is concerned.

I'll be watching Homeland, even though I'm not all that crazy about it (certainly not as crazy as Carrie)

I'm just not a graphic novel fan, I guess. The writing on TWD is repetitive. Guns, axes, bow and arrows, hiding out on a farm, hiding out in a prison. War. The occasional zombie. Arguments. It doesn't go any further than that. I guess I find the apocalypse boring. If I get tired of Homeland, I can watch a bunch of TV shows on netflix or Hulu plus or amazon prime.

I've never read a graphic novel, so obviously not a fan of the show because I'm a fan of the novel genre. But I think your criticism of the writing/plotting is lame. These themes in TWD are part of every show or play, good and bad. "Arguments." It's called conflict, dialogue. "The occasional zombie attack." There's one every 10 minutes or so.

You just seem dim to me. Dim. To. Me.

by Anonymousreply 4810/13/2013

R48, yes, these are the classic building blocks. They just aren't executed well in Walking Dead. The stories could be more interesting (or maybe they can't, I dunno; I've never written dystopic zombie stories). I've been reading some interesting dystopic novels lately (sans zombies) which are far more compelling than this show.

They haven't made me care much about the characters, and some of the conflicts are really drawn out. That whole Sophia thing was irritating. Oh, surprise, surprise, she's a zombie Hershel is storing in the barn! The dead wife visions - that's fine for one episode, but move on. They need new, better writers. I don't like the governor, but his storyline was compelling.

This is because religious nuts love these apocalypse shows, and the network doesn't want to rattle their cages.

Interesting to know. I don't know anyone who reads the comics myself, but I imagine the audience for the books is much less neanderthal than the TV audience and much, much smaller in numbers.

There is a huge and depressingly simple audience for this show that likes to watch brains go squish. Saying they have religious objections is giving them too much credit. This is a frat boy show. Two guys kissing isn't an abomination to them; it's just icky.

R78 - Well assuming they aren't just throwing out shit that is supposed to be the foundation of the series - everyone is infected. You could die of a heart attack and come back as a zombie.

The new twist on this seems to be - I don't know - a mutation of whatever is infecting them, perhaps. Rick noticed a walker at the fence that was bleeding from his eyes and nose just like the dorky kid was at the end. Most of the walkers up to this point are just grey. Their faces aren't pouring blood. This seems to indicate there is a new infection or the old one has mutated.

by Anonymousreply 8210/13/2013

There wasn't anything unclear. It was her husband, he was a walker, he hadn't eaten in a long time, so he was "slowing down", she brought him back to feed it, and felt really guilty about it, she was going to use the pig instead.

So guilty she took her life because she knew she could never come back from that.

That is actually really smart and practical of her. In this world long hair can be dangerous, plus short hair is much easier to keep clean and less ratty looking.

Now THIS is the Walking Dead I know and love. Totally amazing episode, reminiscent of season one. It had all the suspense, scariness, and storyline of season one. I loved every minute of it.

I was actually a HUGE critic of season three, because the writing was awful and the storyline was predictable, but after seeing the show runner on Talking Dead, he really seems to be a fan of the show himself, and also seems to know what WE want to see, so I'm hoping to see good things from this season. He said the suspense only builds from this point, so that's a GOOD THING.

Exactly. I got a "28 Days Later" vibe from the bleeding eyes. If you re-watch the episode, the dorky kid says "thanks for catching the deer for us, Mr. Dixon" and then Daryl licks his fingers and shakes the kid's hand.

Also notice that it was the pig that got sick and died, so I'm guessing that the new virus is being spread by the animals, and either Darly passed the virus onto the kid by licking his fingers and shaking his hand, or the kid ate infected meat.

In any case, there is clearly a virus mutation that Rick picked up on from the beginning scene, when he noticed the zombie who was bleeding from his eyes. I LOVE this new development!

[quote] Wait. We kill zombies by chopping off their heads, but the woman in the woods needs to feed her zombie head?

Zombie mythology is that you kill them by stabbing their brains, not by severing the head. You'll notice that the zombie heads in the Governor's fish tanks were still alive and could bite people.

However, you must STAB THE BRAIN in order to kill it.

So many creepy and exciting moments in this show. I LOVED the Irish woman. She brought a whole new element to the show, regarding the mental illness that a zombie apocalypse would cause.

Then, as the show runner said, there is the element of how the kids have adapted to their new reality much quicker, hence the non chalant attitude of the children towards the zombies, and death.

I love when the show addresses the effects of the apocalypse, rather than trying to re-create life as it is now, as they did with the Woodbury storyline.

I don't want to see OUR reality re-created in the zombie apocalypse. I want to see THEIR reality, and all the horrors that come with it.

This season absolutely seems to be addressing the zombie apocalypse, two or three years into it, and it's really interesting again.

The added dimension of mutated strains of the virus, plus the seemingly more vicious and hungry zombies, is making this season SO MUCH MORE interesting than last season.

I am LOVING IT, and I say this as a fan from day one. Yay yay yay!!!!

OK, stupid people, here it is for the last time:

[bold]EVERYONE IS INFECTED WITH THE ZOMBIE VIRUS.[/bold] That's what the guy at the CDC told Rick before the facility blew up.

When you die with your brain intact, you will turn into a walker. Your brain must be destroyed to stop you.

Lori died from giving childbirth, not from a walker bite. Since she was already infected (as EVERYONE IS), Carl knew she'd turn into a walker after she died. So he knew he had to shoot her in the head before she turned. And that's what he did.

by Anonymousreply 15510/14/2013

The zombie in the well was bloated from being in the water so long.

T-bone, however, was not exactly slim.

I think many of the reasons for not seeing obese survivors or walkers have been mentioned but some have not. My theories:

- fat people can't run fast. When they're caught by a walker they're probably too fat/weak/slow to escape with just a bite that would turn them, and instead become a feast for a slew of walkers to basically devour. By the time the walkers are through with them there's nothing left to "turn".

- fat people who do turn eventually slim down as walkers. Not only are there no fat walkers, but pretty much all of them are gaunt and emaciated. Walkers likely don't store body fat and any fat that they have when they turn is quickly burned off.

- no (or few) fat survivors is easily explained: everyone is basically getting by on subsistence diets now, and expending much more energy in their daily lives by constantly being on the run, hunting and scavenging for food and supplies, and routinely getting into physical altercations.

The zombie apocalypse relentlessly moved upward and took over TV again last night. The Walking Dead returned for its fourth season on Sunday to series record viewership.

Airing at 9 PM, the AMC show was watched by 16.1 million with 10.4 million among adults 18-49. While NBC’s Sunday Night Football airing of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys vs. Washington Redskins game last night was watched by 19.65 million according to fast nationals from Nielsen, it had 9.32 million viewers among adults 18-49.

That means right now, The Walking Dead’s 8.2 18-49 rating beat the game’s 7.3 and everything else on primetime broadcast and cable TV in the key demo this season so far.

The Walking Dead’s Season 3 debut on October 14, 2012 was watched by 10.9 million viewers and 7.3 million in the 18-49 and 25-54 demos. Thought better later in the season, those were records for the show at the time and then the most-watched drama telecast in basic cable history.

However, written by new showrunner Scott Gimple, who took over from the exited Glen Mazzara in January, Sunday’s “30 Days Without An Accident” episode bested the Season 3 finale of the drama that was the cable powerhouse’s previous series high. That March 31st episode was watched by 12.4 million viewers and 8.1 million among the key demo.

Before that, the 12.3 million and 6.8 million among adults 18-49 who watched The Walking Dead’s Season 3 mid-cycle premiere on February 11 was the series high for the show that has constantly beat big Big 4 network shows like Modern Family, The Big Bang Theory and NCIS in the vital demo.

Sunday’s premiere also topped the series high of 10.3 million viewers and 6.7 million in the key demo that Breaking Bad’s heavily promoted and anticipated finale got for AMC on September 29.

In metered markets, The Walking Dead got a 7.5/11 last night, way up from the 5.4/8 the series had for its last season opener last October.

Nobody in Georgia is as thin as those walkers. I was in Atlanta and Macon last year on business and those mother fuckers are huge. Every one of those fuckers tip the scales at about 290 lbs+.

Can't be. The kid with the eyeglasses became a zombie, so the difference between the "old" virus and the "new" mutating virus is that the old one waited until you died, and THEN turned you into a zombie, whereas this new virus KILLS YOU and also turns you into a zombie.

In other words, it has become more aggressive, which is totally terrifying! The show is really upping the ante. So now the survivors not only have to fight the walkers and avoid getting bitten, but they somehow also have to avoid being infected by the new mutated virus. As if they were fucked enough!

[quote] One question: why would Rick not want Carol to teach the kids about self-defense and weaponry?

Rick wants the kids to maintain their innocence. That's why he told Carl to go play with his friend, and go to storytime. Rick is in denial about their new reality.

Scott Gimple said as much on Talking Dead. For the kids, this IS their reality - they don't remember much about the old world. For the adults, it's taking them longer to adapt.

It makes sense for Carol, especially having lost a young daughter to walkers. She's trying to teach the kids to defend themselves, in a sense, making up for what she should have done with Sophia. If only she had taught Sophia how to fight...

[quote] Never gotten into the show, but the ratings are amazing and are putting braodcast tv's to shame.

The down side of this is that the show is becoming a HUGE product placement advertising crapfest. Anyone notice the Blue Moon beer featured front-and-center in the Big Lot store? Leading right into the commercial "sponsored by Blue Moon." I hate that shit!

I think in Season Two it was the car company Kia or Hyundai, which coincidentally, Shane was driving as his "new ride."

Advertisers ALWAYS ruin a good show. They did the same thing to Teen Wolf.

They're like leeches. The minute a show does well, BOOM! The advertisers can't wait to start selling us their shit through obvious product placement.

Oh, and to the morons thinking that the stupid Carol is a lesbian and KFC and lame fat people jokes are funny? Um, they're not.

Or -- much simpler explanation -- the new virus is totally unrelated and just kills you. Then, once you're dead, you become a zombie.

I mean, if someone just died of a heart attack, they'd get reborn as a zombie, right? So if it was some sort of swine flu thing, once they died, they'd still come back as a zombie.

I loved seasons 1 & 2, but 3 spent way too much time building up to the war between Woodbury and the Prison that never really ended up happening. The whole season was anti-climatic because the war thing just fizzled out in the last few episodes. The season finale last spring was a huge let-down.

[quote]And how come there were zombies on the roof for years but suddenly the roof can't hold their weight?

If you watch the scene again, you will see that the walkers are standing around in a catatonic state just waiting, which they can tend to do.

Around the helicopter is a huge puddle, presumably fuel.

When the black guy picks up a bottle of wine, he sees a drip from the ceiling. That liquid softened the roof around the helicopter. It also softened the case of bottles. When he put the bottle back, the case gave way, and that made the zombies walk in that direction (towards the helicopter) and onto the wet spot where they then fell through.

For the record. I am straight. My college room-mate, Hermione, and I had some youthful experimentation for a semester. It was wonderful. I would not trade those experiences for anything.

That semester, I worked the register at my local Kentucky Fried Chicken. That's what it was called then. They have only recently begun calling it by its initials. That's where I met my late-husband, Ed. He was an auto mechanic and a regular customer. We dated for a while and made love for the first time in the back seat of his Ford F-250 and I knew true heaven for the first time in my life.

I knew I was straight at the moment I reached climax. I love my lesbian and gay friends, and Hermione will always hold a special place in my heart, but I love men. Hopefully that clears up any speculation.

by Anonymousreply 30110/15/2013

Secondary infections!

Earlier posters seem to be on the right track in their assessment, and were was confirmed with that Vulture article. Another disease that is similar to the Spanish flu (but completely separate from the still unnamed “walker virus”) is spreading.

This one must infect and take action rapidly because the kid was asymptomatic and seemingly healthy at the beginning of the day, but dead by the end of it. As another poster previously pointed out, the bleeding from the eyes is indicative of hemorrhaging caused by an infection from something like the Ebola virus.

And once the victim succumbs to the infection from the flu virus and dies, the latent “walker virus” takes effect and reanimates the dying/dead person resulting in a flesheater. At least that is what makes sense from the little bit of information that we have been given.

It’s a shame that they have no scientists among their citizenry. It would be nice if one of the Woodbury refugees was a doctor or researcher, but it seems like any scientific experience died with Milton.

Will they be able to figure out that they are dealing with a secondary epidemic? Will they understand why some get sick and some don’t (as happens with any flu epidemic) and nail down a potential cause or treatment? Probably not, but it won't matter for long anyway as the pandemic looks like it will kill it's victims quickly, and the survivors will likely be immune.

At least the fast acting disease will thin the cast out.

This is exactly what I said during last season's finale! Why kill off such an interesting and intellectual character as Milton, when his talents could be put to such good use??

What a mistake to kill him off, especially since the actor himself was capable of being creepy and sympathetic at the same time. He was perfect for the show.

I said it before, but this show definitely needs more intellectual characters, because there's way too much testosterone and bravado, and not enough intelligence.

Early on in the episode didn't Daryl call one of the new characters "Doc" or something close to that?

It was the first part of the scene where he licked his fingers before shaking hands with the nerdy kid.

Daryl was walking to where Carol was cooking (I think that's what she was doing) and while he walked toward her, he called one of the people walking away Doc...I think. Then Carol played up that Daryl might be jealous because she was talking to "Doc" and she said something like "If it makes you feel better, I liked you first."

It could just be a nickname, but it could also mean that they gained a doctor or someone with medical training either from Woodbury or from the other stragglers that they have been slowly and carefully (answer 3 questions!) welcoming to their fold.

I don't remember them ever showing/talking about a doctor being in Woodbury. So maybe this one came from somewhere else.

R315, there was a doctor, of sorts, in Woodbury. She was a black woman, who would examine new arrivals like Andrea and Michonne. IIRC, she had a pretty fierce 'do, for a survivor anyway. She also treated the Governor when Michonne gouged out his eye. Don't know what became of her, though.

I don't think it has anything to do with people liking or disliking the actress. The "previously on" bit is very limited in time, and they have to use it to remind the audience of things they need to know for upcoming episodes. Her storyline is dead, so they didn't feel the need to bring her up again.

When Patrick died at the end, I had to reflect on the whole episode and review. One of the first things you see Patrick do is introduce himself to Daryl and shake his hand saying he is his hero. Then Patrick takes over for Carol (who is straight) serving up the food…Okay, that can’t be good. Then you remember the sick pig, and how it was dead towards the end. Remember when Rick was gardening and found that gun buried? I’m pretty sure there are some dead bodies in the soil as well.

So lets review…This could be an airborne contagion, it could be viral, it could be bacterial. Maybe when you die, you turn into a zombie, okay to kill a zombie, you shoot them in the head…but maybe that doesn’t kill the virus, so when you plant over dead bodies, maybe the food is now being contaminated.

by Anonymousreply 36610/17/2013

I think they laid some nice groundwork for the coming season. Is what killed Patrick a mutated form of what brought about the apocalypse? Is it a more benign, but just as deadly threat? In my opinion, the first two seasons were exciting and awesome.

The second half of the third season was drawn out and boring. Who didn’t know that Andrea and Merle would fucking die? With past seasons, everyone is going along, doing their thing and BANG! they’re dead. It was a shock, it was a loss. They moved too far away from that. Frankly, introducing characters simply to fucking kill them off with no emotional attachment to the audience cheapens the experience.

So, where will this season take us? I hope they can take it in a direction that advances the story. Get back into making morally ambiguous characters like Shane. Was he a bad guy, or was he a guy put into an impossible situation that did bad things, or at least things that we’d like believe we wouldn’t do ourselves?

Is Carol taking a dark turn? Once Tyrese's gf started getting sick, Carol was giving her some dirty looks. Which leaves me wondering if it was Carol or Tyrese's sister who burned them. Interesting...

This episode was a bit slow. It always frustrates me when this happens, because although I know it takes time to tell a story, there are only 16 episodes in a season, so I want every single one to COUNT.

I'm in the camp that says they need to find a way to kill whole groups of zombies. Picking them off one at a time--that's just not gonna work over the long haul. I think fire is the way to go and it worked on the zombies in the Gov's pit.

Yeah, I heard Nicotero address that issue, but it seemed like he hadn't really thought it through and started mumbling something about boom boxes and sound and got kinda lost in crosstalk.

So he says no fire 'cause it'll attract people. But Rick tells Crazy Lady in the Woods that the key is safety in numbers.

Yes, but don't they burn the Walkers they dispatch? They did that on the farm. They have always put too much faith in those fences. The fences were meant to keep one or two convicts from escaping. Not to support the body weight of a hundred walkers. Why not build fire pits like The Governor did around the grounds. Lure them to the pit and once they fall in, burn them. There are not enough deterrents to keep them away from the fences to begin with. Morgan was one guy and he had his defenses down to a science. What DO they do with all that rotting flesh? Burning would ensure that whatever other bugs they are carrying around would be destroyed. it seem's like they are all in denial about how safe and idyllic the prison is. And Michonne's revenge fantasy is going to get her killed or captured by the wrong people. Dumb. Just dumb.

Wow, it's amazing how I was thinking the exact same thing.

Last season, when people complained that the writers on this show hate women, I kind of rolled my eyes.

However, a pattern does seem to be emerging.

Carol was just starting to find her voice last season, which even Merle noticed.

But now, it just seems that they're trying to make her crazy. Teaching kids how to engage in knife fights during storytelling time? Stabbing the girls' father in the brain while they watched and cried? Yelling at the girls and berating them for being weak?

And then when people start disliking her character because she has become so weird, it's gonna be so long Melissa McBride.

Carol is the only female "mom" character left from the original season, so I would love to see her being the nurturing one on the show. Michonne is too hard, as is Tyrese's sister.

I want to see a softer side of Carol, not some crazy lady. And PLEASE don't write her off!

Is that really making her crazy R501? It is a freaking zombie apocalypse where the possibility of death is always around the corner. I think she was absolutely doing the right thing to toughen them up.

Carol lost her daughter, she probably has mourned her and regretted not giving the kid the skills to survive the walkers. It makes sense that she would try to give the kids a chance.

Her wanting to teach the kids survival skills makes sense to me and I think that was a good development, but she did come off wrong in the other scenes. Calling the girl weak because her first kill wasn't her father? Her telling Carl to lie instead of womaning up and telling Rick herself?... She came off really annoying, hypocritical, and harsh, like Andrea/Laurie did towards their ends...

Maybe I'm wrong since she's the only original female left, but if they keep writing her like this past episode. We'll be cheering for her death soon enough.

Plotting on this show is actually pretty good, all things considered. Character writing is TERRIBLE.

Can anyone really tell me what Glenn and Maggie are like as people? I can't. Their characters are very poorly delineated. Was The Governor ever a coherently written character?

Compare how the writers of Breaking Bad developed and deepened Walter White's character through the seasons. On the other hand, frankly, the writers of TWD could kill off Rick and the show really wouldn't suffer.

It could be that the writers do not develop the characters because they don't want the audience to get too attached to them.

I love the books and the show in general, but the female characters definitely suffer (usually in every way possible). I found a portion of the book extremely disturbing and difficult to get through, and for me, that's saying a lot. Michonne and Carol's plotlines in particular made me really pissed at Kirkman. I'm not going to spoil it for anyone, just saying that guy seems to have a thing against the ladies.

[quote] Plotting on this show is actually pretty good, all things considered. Character writing is TERRIBLE.

Nicotero was originally a special effects guy, so it's no surprise that the writing is bad.

Both Gimple and Nicotero seem to be more focused on the special effects and zombie gore, rather than the characters. You should've seen how their eyes lit up when talking about the zombies "raining" from the ceiling in episode one.

The hard part about writing good characters is that the storyline would drag, as you learn about the characters. There's a fine line between pleasing the hardcore zombie fans, versus pleasing the people watching for the characters. Ultimately the zombie fans win, because it IS a zombie show, after all.

For me, as long as the pace of the story is fast and exciting, then I'm happy. Which I guess would make it hard to write for good character development.

I hope that no more main characters die, because it's really hard to warm to the new people. The show needs some core characters, for the sake of continuity.

by Anonymousreply 51110/21/2013

I got the distinct impression that there was some chemistry between Rick and Michonne in the season opener. And Carl seems quite close to her. What's going on there?

by Anonymousreply 51210/21/2013

I have to say Carol is the only character I care about so they better not fuck her up. And I agree that they have a bad track record with women who are given even a little equal screen time.

If the guy who writes this shit is a married man with kids, you'd think he wouldn't be completely clueless about writing female characters. But of course, just because lives with a woman, it doesn't mean he knows anything about women.

I would love it if Michael Cudlitz's character was gay, but I have little hope of that.

In the most recent comics, how long has it been since Z-Day?

On the show it's been what, about 2 years?

Long enough for most of the original zombies to run out of energy and rot to mush, imo.

by Anonymousreply 51510/21/2013

I agree, at some point, the zombies of the first infection are going to be mush, and new walkers have to come from the vastly reduced population.

Therefore, less walkers.

[quote]So do we think Karen - Tyrese's gf-- died because of the flu, then had her brains destroyed, then was dragged outside and burned? Or do we think she might've still been human when she was killed/attacked/burned?

That's the key question for next week, isn't it?

There was a lot of blood in those drag marks that led Tyrese to find their bodies, so maybe Karen and the guy ["David from the Decatur group"] were already dead.

Then again, maybe they resisted being dragged out to their deaths and were beaten, and THAT explains the blood.

If it's the second option [and I suspect that it is] then there's gonna be hell to pay when Tyrese figures out who did it. [And I think it was his sister.]

When Rick burned the pig stuff and took off his shirt to burn it too, there was a brief, but delightful, full frame shot of his crotch.

I liked this week's episode.

by Anonymousreply 52010/22/2013

The stupidity in this episode pissed me off.

After dealing with the attacks in the prison and realising that there's some sort of virus or other infection floating around, Rick goes outside and encounters Carl and Maggie helping the limping Michonne.

As Carl runs up to hug him, Rick warns his son to stay away, but it's too late, the boy ran too fast and hugged his possibly-infected father who is covered in possibly-infected blood.

Rick then tells them that there's probably an infection, and they should stay away from him.

THEN, he watches as now-possibly-infected Carl goes back to helping Michonne and Maggie!

Wtf, idiot! As soon as the boy hugged you, he was possibly-infected and needed to stay away from everyone else, not just you!

by Anonymousreply 52110/22/2013

Poor little piggies. ;_;

I thought Rick was going to break one of each pig's legs to prevent it escaping the zombies (like the chicken at the farm in season 2), and then when he brought out the knife I was like omg no!

I wonder where the gang got the mama sow in the first place?

She looked like a normal pink farm pig, not a brown wild boar like the one the crazy Irish lady pounced on.

Why would they want us to not get too attached to the characters? Agree its targeted for the gore audience, but it seems like alot of filler these two episodes: Daryl digging graves (while pleasant to watch, a total waste in the plot), lots of boring conversations...

I'd actually like to see some contact with other survivors, even flashbacks to before the outbreak when their lives were normal. ANYTHING to alleviate the boredom that is this season so far.

I saw a preview of next week's episode. It looks dreadful. It's light comedy-musical episode, as the survivors are having a prison talent show, in the style of Glee. I cannot bear to watch Rick and Carl in tophats and tails tap dancing and singing Me and My Shadow.

by Anonymousreply 53910/23/2013

I think Emily Kinney the singing babysitter is a better actress than Lauren Cohan (Maggie) - she brings more vulnerability and I think the show needs an "innocent" like her - but Lauren Cohan is so much hotter. She does have a severe case of Resting Bitchface but I'd still do her. Carol and Michonne are the prettiest women on this show, though.

I was wondering if Glen/Maggie's storyline was going to follow anything like their comic book counterparts - they get married, have a baby and then Glen gets beaten to death by a rival gang - but it looks like that's not going to happen. This show is like a weird alternate universe of the comic books.

Carol is bisexual in the comics and goes apeshit and feeds herself to a walker over losing Tyreese to Michonne so I'm hoping the show goes way, way AU with her storyline because that was the stupidest shit in the universe.

From Deadline:

[bold]AMC Renews ‘The Walking Dead’ For Season 5[/bold]

No surprise that after shattering cable records with its Season 4 debut this month, the top-rated zombie apocalypse is coming back. AMC today announced there will be a fifth season of The Walking Dead.

“We are very happy to make what has to be one of the most anti-climactic renewal announcements ever: The Walking Dead is renewed for a fifth season,” AMC President Charlie Collier said in a statement. “This is a show that has erased traditional distinctions between cable and broadcast. Its expanding base of passionate fans has grown every season, most recently – and most notably – with the season four premiere earlier this month, which broke viewership records for the series and became the biggest non-sports telecast in cable history.”

Today’s announcement also stated that showrunner Scott Gimple will continue with the series along with EPs Gale Anne Hurd and Robert Kirkman, who created the comic series on which the TV show is based, as well as David Alpert, Greg Nicotero and Tom Luse.

Previously the Dead’s supervising producer, Gimple was promoted earlier this year to EP for Season 4 of the show after the sudden exit of Glenn Mazzara in late 2012.

[quote]Well, what do you expect in a zombie apocalypse?

It's not that the gloom and doom, in and of itself, is a problem. But drama is built on characters striving for something. The first season still had the best structure. They were headed somewhere, thinking there would be a solution there.

There's something inherently undramatic about staying put and riding things out. It's what was so stultifying about the season on the farm (where presumably the big action that was supposed to pull us through week to week was the search for the little girl). And so far, it's killing this season, too. Without an objective, all there is is grossness, and that gets boring fast.

by Anonymousreply 58010/29/2013

[quote]There's something inherently undramatic about staying put and riding things out.

I get what you are saying, but what they are trying to show is that even when they are keeping zombies out, something still got in. In this case a virus. They are trying to show that nowhere is safe. Travel in a zombie world can be dramatic, but there's also drama when nowhere is safe, not even behind stone walls. I think that's their point.

Plus they said they spent a huge budget on the prison and wanted to use it for at least two seasons.

If I were the characters, I'd be heading for an island.

by Anonymousreply 58110/29/2013

Great point about the island!

I like the idea of nowhere being safe, but it still doesn't solve my big problem. It was great and scary for the first hour and now I'm unengaged.

I don't want rainbows and lollipops, but I want the thought that that rainbows and lollipops might be out there somewhere and we're rooting for them to find them. The one really great advance in this last episode (for me) was the hint of someone broadcasting on the radio.

Working toward something is dramaturgy 101.

To each his own, of course.

The problem for me is I don't care about the Woodbury people. Even Tyrese and his sister. I only care about the core group that was at the prison. So to me if the Woodbury people get killed off it doesn't have much effect on me, they are a bunch of redshirts.
