    Hahaha, nice. I like the color one more, but there's too much yellow. I'd say keep Michonne colored but make the background white. On that note, I can't WAIT for Michonne to show up, she's a total badass. I'm guessing we won't see her until season 3 though (or maybe even 4). In general I'm impatient for them to get to the prison or whatever the show's equivalent for the prison is.

    Ah- Well.. I bloody loved it! I thought the first season was brilliant. My Father and I watched a zombie film displayed off a projector when I was lad; I believe it was "Dawn of the Zombies" or something, it was black and white and took place inside a house mostly. Ah.. Watching this, I felt somewhat of a child again. My Father used to have a thing for Zombie movies, I remember he once took me to the projectors and showed me the film involving Zombies and a island. It was ridden with nudity, so I didn't really enjoy it; but I was with my Father non-the-less. One of my better memories, not many to be had with him, but it's one of a few I cherished. So yes. I really enjoyed the first season, it really showed just how far advanced the film industries have come in regards to effects. I ;3 my Netflix account. If there is a poll or ratings thingy, tell me and I'll put in a five star rating. The characters were unique, they beautifully reflected the atmosphere they were in; the scenery is terrific and well designed. Due to the fact that we haven't an actual Zombie apocalypse, this left room for the developers to create scenario's, situations and inject the characters into whatever fits their ideas. Some scenes over-whelmed the viewer, or showed silly things (zombies are silly ;D), but overall; I loved it. ;)

    Suff: The movie was "The Night of the Living Dead"; I had to Google to acquire the title of the movie.

    Hm, there might be hope for this show yet if they have the balls to pull shit like this.
    Hopefully they do it more often, I liked that about the comics... not knowing if I should really get attached to characters or not because they could very well die at any moment.

    The dialogue on the show still needs a lot of work though, none of their conversations sound natural.

    For a second there I thought for sure Shane was going to say Ted Levine's line from Silence of the Lambs when he was also looking in the mirror. Oh yeah, I hope he dies a horrible death.

    Still enjoying this series a lot, and I hope it holds the charm it has

    Man, so far this season they've had great cliffhangers at the end of every episode... The deer and Carl, Shane and Otis...
  7. eQUIV

    eQUIV Spy

    Thanks! Who would you like to see play Michonne. I can't think of a mainstream actress that comes to mind, I think they'll have to get an unknown. Unless they can talk Robery Downey into putting on a wig and going Tropic Thunder style again.. Haha

    Shane is a ****ing wanker. I felt really bad for Otis :(
  9. Ennui

    Ennui The Freeman

    I don't know. Some really badass black girl with tight braids. I can't think of any major actresses I could see there either.

    I thought ep3 was fantastic btw. The writing and dialogue for the show is still exceptionally poor but that episode had lots of great zombie action which is the main reason to watch this show in the first place. Wasn't particularly surprised by the ending.

    Well I think I can post my Comic-CON: NYC badge. It's still a spoiler I guess but at this point I don't consider it to be one:

    I knew what would happen but still, why spoil things? :hmph:

    Not gonna read one post of this thread because I am terribly late to the party and just discovered this series. Watched the first three episodes of the first season today and they were very entertaining. The plot lines are a bit predictable but other than that I have had a great time so far.
  12. Raziaar

    Raziaar I Hate Custom Titles

    Well 90% of the thread is people bitching about the show.

    I agree with you though, the show isn't perfect, in some regards it's subpar... but I'm still enjoying it.
  13. morgs

    morgs The Freeman

    Yeah, obviously it's a lot easier for me to enjoy television shows than most people :S. Either that or I really have 'no taste', which as sliver mentioned in chat a while ago is actually a good thing, because it means I can get enjoyment out of more shows :p
  14. Shakermaker

    Shakermaker Party Escort Bot

    Yeah, I can see how people are calling this show Lost-with-zombies. Plot isn't as important as carrying the series forward to another season. Regardless though it has been a nice ride so far. Finished the first season last night and the only thing I am still wondering about is what the hell happened to Merle. It feels like the script writers are holding him back until they need a deus ex machina to troll the survivors again. Gonna check out the three episodes of the second season today.
  15. Shakermaker

    Shakermaker Party Escort Bot

    Roight, I am completely up to speed now.

    Shane, what an asshole. And just to be sure: he did get bit in the head by an uninfected Otis, right?

    I've read through the rest of the thread now and I agree with Morgs, Hool and others that this show might have blatant inconsistencies and a less than stellar script, but it nevertheless entertains the hell out of me. Hopefully the torrent gods are quick with tonight's episode.
  16. Lucid

    How exactly is TWD Lost with zombies...?
  17. Ennui

    Ennui The Freeman

    Not sure about this one. I think it was just abrasions from his head hitting the concrete during the scuffle.
  18. hool10

    hool10 Tank

    No it was
    Fatty who ripped out a chunk of his hair holding onto him. Zombies ate good that night! :p
  19. Raziaar

    Raziaar I Hate Custom Titles

    I feel bad for poor Otis. I hope Shane experiences a similar fate.

    Both of them could have made it out. With all the miracle shit they pulled off this far, it could have happened.

    Otis was a written as a throwaway right from the start though.
  20. morgs

    morgs The Freeman

    Spoiler that sheeet.

    but yeah you're right about the throwaway thing.
  21. Raziaar

    Raziaar I Hate Custom Titles

    Fine fine...

    Why do we have to spoil this shit anyway? People shouldn't be reading the latest posts unless they're caught up. If all the posts are spoilered, it's just the same as them being unspoilered. Nothing to read.

    Anyway... I got RAPED IN THE ASSHOLE again by the preview for next weeks' episode.

    If you don't wanna know some shit that is a huge ass spoiler, don't watch the trailer and don't read my spoiler.

    Merle is coming back next episode.

    Thanks assholes who made the previews. I hope you choke on zombie dick.

    Seriously, why is it that previews have to contain the BIGGEST ****ING SPOILERS possible for the series?
  22. Sliver

    The amount of gore in that scene with the well is just so weird. Find it hilarious that it's ok to show that on television but absolutely no nudity of any kind.

    It was a standard Walking Dead episode, bunch of characters I don't care about talking about shit I don't care about.

    Get to the prison already
  23. Raziaar

    Raziaar I Hate Custom Titles

    Wouldn't a Prison be a bad place to go? With the extreme availability of zombies in completely strange places, you'd think that place would just be crawling with infected prison guards and inmates.
  24. Sliver

    Sliver Companion Cube

    That's where they head after the farm, in the comic books at least. The plot has strayed pretty far so I'm not actually sure if they'll go there or not.
  25. Ennui

    Ennui The Freeman

    Oh I'm pretty sure they'll end up there eventually. It's too big a plot point in the comic for them to completely ignore it.
  26. Raziaar

    Raziaar I Hate Custom Titles

    Is the beef most people have with the show really stemming from the fact that they're not liking how it plays out compared to the comics? Cause I really don't see in the episodes anything worthy of the level of bitching that it has generated.
  27. ktimekiller

    ktimekiller Party Escort Bot

    Whenever i see this show, i get infuriated by the ridiculous shit that happens

    utterly shittily unrealistic


    the stupidity of the cast is like unfathomably deep
  28. function9

    function9 Spy

    I never read the comics, for me it's exactly how ktimekiller explains it. Some of the events/choices are just retarded, like the whole well scene for example.
  29. morgs

    morgs The Freeman

    Some of the gore scenes are a bit stupid, it's like they pause the action to say "look at these gore effects!" which makes combat with the zombies seem really stop/go.
  30. Lucid

    Lucid The Freeman

    One of the better episodes of the season mostly because they finally used Glenn and Daryl's little expedition was cool and because Lauren Cohan is hot as ****.

    Other than that, terrible dialogue, terrible choices continually being made, and most of the actors are shit.
  31. hool10

    hool10 Tank



    Episode summary is zombie turns into a messy burrito, Lori pisses on a stick, female characters cry a lot (including Rick), and Korean kid gets some hot cow girl action. Damn is she hot.
  32. CptStern

    CptStern suckmonkey

    agreed. they certainly dont act like people who've been through a zombie apocalypse. I should know
  33. <RJMC>

    <RJMC> The Freeman

    maybe they want all the survivors to wear combat harness whit shotgun bullets and camo pants and bandanas and crack one liners everytime they headshot a zombie whit theyr spas12?

    I am liking the serie so far though there wasnt any considerable twist this episode compared whit previous episodes since imo the last scene wasnt so cliffhangeirng to me

    also

    I spoiled myself after reading a bit aboutt he comics storyline,from what I read the prision is controlled by some criminal guy,maybe in the serie it will be merle?

    also I read some chick whit zombie pets gets raped in there or something like that,I got shivers thinking that what if is the little girl or something like that,cuz who knows if the show would go that way

    anyway I didnt read that much spoilers so dont spoilme please,and I got a feeling the group will not go well whit the farm people
  34. CptStern

    CptStern suckmonkey

    and the zombies are armed as well. dual glocks firing gangster style while survivors duck and cover behind carefully placed barricades
  35. Shakermaker

    Shakermaker Party Escort Bot

    The spoilerific sneak peek of next week's episode reveals that ...

    ... Merle will be back. And not as The Governor it seems, the character from the comic you are referring to.


    Your feeling isn't off. I haven't read the comics either, but what I understand from what I have read about them is that Hershell was being vague against Rick about the barn for a reason. My guess is that ...

    Hershell doesn't kill people out of principal, not even walkers.
  36. <RJMC>

    <RJMC> The Freeman

    I guess merle will be hostile to the group,and probably will try to lure his brother to his side again,but the brother will refuse cuz he likes the group and want to find the litle girl and give her back to the mother

  38. Shakermaker

    Shakermaker Party Escort Bot

    Yeah, I am quite sure that it will come to a conflict between Merle and Darryl. It might very well be the conclusion of the first half of the season.
  39. Krynn72

    Krynn72 The Freeman

    Yep. So far the best actor in it is the boondock saints guy, and he's just average.

    Also, anybody know if that black guy and his kid are coming back into the story, or were they just cut? They were in it from the pilot and then vanished, with mr. cop talking to them on the radio for forever with no response. On of the main reasons I'm still watching is because I want to know wtf happened to them.
  40. <RJMC>

    <RJMC> The Freeman

    is obvious they may be back,who knows if various characters dies this season and they join the group

    also

    dont know about you but I find the shane betrayal to otis one of the best parts of the show so far,it really add tension everytime shane appears cuz you got that feeling he will kill someone or something like that,and even if it was a bit predictable it makes me prone to expect that almost all characters can turn bad anytime
