    Nice TWD epi last night. Tied up some loose ends and introduced new characters. Clear departure from the books looming to an extent ... TERMINUS??!!

    Don't care 'bout nothing else...got my Carol back!


    P.S. I like Michael Cudlitz joining the show too...although I am sure this is another one of those 10-12 episode guest arcs.

    Review: The Walking Dead - Inmates: Its alright to cry

    (*) Their leader is played by Michael Cudlitz, who was so great on TNT's "Southland." He's playing another character from the comics, which means it's time for an extra warning about not giving away events or information that have yet to occur on the TV show. (See the end of the the review for the full list of rules.) You want to call him Abraham, that's fine, but beyond that, say nothing til the show reveals it.
    I stopped reading comic after they lost the prison...so I am curious now(no spoilers comic book readers).

    (This was also perhaps the most blatantly red-shirty episode of the series to date. With Hershel and the Governor already dead, it turns out that every single remaining character we knew the slightest bit about survived, while all the dead people on the bus, at the train tracks, etc., were completely anonymous. When Bob laments of the bus passengers, "They were good people, all of them," I stifled a laugh.)
    GREAT point.

    I'm just excited that Carol, moon of my life, is back. Lizzie is a ****ing psychopath and Beth is annoying and I feel bad that Daryl is stuck with her, of all people.

    I'm pretty excited for the new characters! I've never read the comics, so I don't really know what to expect, but apparently they're good people.....which is a nice change.

    GREAT point.
    This article brought up some very good points. I only have some hope for the show to pick up a bit after the show last night. At least they did develop some of the characters last night (Lizzie), brought some back (Carol, Little Butt Kicker) and introduced new (Abraham and crew).

    It does feel like they are running head long to where Kirkman is now in the comic though. And they have been wide open about wanting to kill off a major character this year - which is more foreshadowing, to me at least, that they don't really know where to go with the series, just looking for the shock value ... Still missing Darabont as my wife and youngest watched Season 1 all the way through yesterday. The pilot of this series is one of the best pilots I have ever scene ...

    Great episode. The opening with Glenn especially - very tense, and I like the addition of someone from the Governor's camp. Also, the psycho girl almost smothering the baby. It looks like they are finally going to give Maggie's sister a personality, so that's helpful. That scene of Tyrese and the little girls having to run in the night - imagine if there was no moon. I swear Maggie's accent was slipping. The new guys who popped in at the end have my interest, as does the Terminus.

    Presumably the five small groups everyone has been split into will become two or three groups shortly since five is probably too many to manage when you have commercial breaks.

    Why does Tyrese fight with such a stupid weapon that requires him to get extremely close to zombies? Find a sporting goods store already.
    Why do morons (specifically train track victim #2 ) turn their back on zombies, especially when it is the LAST REMAINING zombie?
    What the hell stupid thing did the people on the bus do to all get slaughtered?

    I wonder if they are heading towards Carol having to see herself in Lizzie, and maybe, for the greater good, make a decision like Rick did with her. Be an interesting twist. I am truly worried for Carol and her longevity on the show. To me, she is AS untouchable as Darryl...but I don't think the powers that be see her that way. Pretty sure a major character will pass come the last of these back 8. I would be VERY proud of them if it was Rick...but it won't be. It will be someone that the audience LIKES. Ever since the actress playing Carol got on the main cast titles(not till the beginning of this damned season b.t.w., she had been listed as a guest star until then) I have been afraid for her safety. Don't screw it up Kirkman and all, Darryl may be the heart of the show, but Carol is the soul.

    So without saying too much (since you haven't read the books past prison knockdown) - the emergence of a certain weapon (I saw it on a picture that was in the foreground with Rick in background) has foretold who will die - IF THEY FOLLOW THE BOOKS. This will be the truly shocking death, which I think they are after. I still don't trust the powers that be and have thought many times to walk away from the show but now that my whole family is fully in I will continue to watch.

    I don't really trust Kirkman at all. He just strikes me as overwhelmingly happy that his books are a hit and he is making some good coin out of it. I don't think there is anyone left to rein him in (as Darabont could do) if the networks wants something done. Then again, who am I? It isn't my story or concept so Kirkman can do whatever he wants I guess.
