"Now when I go to the bathroom I find out who my friends are." - Jake Scott after both broken hands were in casts following the 1972 season
Whats starting to nother me is that they dont have a really compelling character. They could seriously kill anyone except Daryl and I wouldnt give a ****. He is probably the closest thing to interesting on the cast. I mean, I keep watching for the violence and zombies, but this show could be much better. The premise is pretty much carrying the show now. Not sure how much longer it can though.
Apparently strong ratings so far paved the way for a 3rd season
Dam, great episode...kind of upset about Otis though...**** got real atm.
SpoilerThat well scene is a perfect example of how this show could be so much better. They have 5 wells and a zombie is in one. To any sane, rational person, the best thing to do in that situation is just kill the SOB and close off that well. A zombie has been pissing, sweating and oozing into that well for God knows how long. Youre really going to risk getting one of your few able bodied men's legs bitten off to try pull a zombie out the well? Then what? Its then cool to drink the zombie ooze water? Plus you got the Asian moving up about 1 inch for every 4 feet of rope they pull, which was kinda funny. Dont even get me started on the zombies or lack thereof. One all episode. Instead we get to watch them look for some mentally retarded girl thats been lost for like 4 episodes now. Awesome.
I really could forgive them for the ****ty plot if there were more action this season. Season one was good because there was always something going on. Now, they just sit and chill in their magic farm that zombies mysteriously cant find, burn electricity and take hot showers without huge diesel supplies, search for a girl I wish would turn up dead and cry about some kid that got shot that I really dont care about. Give me zombies dammit. Move the plot along. Do something instead sitting in a magic farm.
this season has been slow so far. scenes dragging on, lots of filler, not enough zombies, too many cliffhangers that need to be wrapped up (man and son that found him in the first episode, merl, him finding out about his wife banging his best friend - which apparently she got pregnant from, little girl lost for how long now?, etc..) they need to wrap some of that **** up - no need to overcomplicate a show about a zombie apocalypse.
there needs to be way more zombie killing and less unfinished story lines for that show to last. i hope it does - big fan of that show - and pretty much anything zombie related.
