Hi guys. Glad to hear others here are into the show. I agree that slow moving zombies are cooler when it comes to movies and TV shows but I think that if you were in a real life zombie situation, running and climbing zombies would be a lot worse and a lot scarier. Just sayin'.
Whether intentional or not, the show really inverted the roles of Rick's crew and the Woodbury people. The "heroes" ride in like terrorists and destroyed a system that was clearly benevolent. Michonne is an idiot. If there's been an ACTUAL APOCALYPSE and there is no law and you are an unarmed woman and armed men who aren't related to you stand outside your room while you sleep for days and days and days and NOTHING BAD HAPPENS, and the community is full of happy, multiethnic and multigenerational families, maybe you should cut the Governor some slack in his personal life and not try to undermine something that was clearly for the best for the majority. Why is the Governor a monster for keeping his zombie daughter as a pet but Michonne is a badass ninja hero who gets a free pass on keeping her zombie brothers as pets? And yes, the ritual combat with defanged zombies IS a harmless catharsis for the survivors of trauma.
But no, instead let's drive all the guards away and truck all those children and senior citizens into a PRISON with its ENTIRE REAR WALL BURNED OUT, so that they'll barely get the chance to complain about sleeping in prison beds and never seeing sunlight before they get eaten.
Excuse my nerd rant. I'll still watch the show anyway.
LOL! Interesting analysis. I will say that Michonne has annoyed me at times with her over-the-top badass attitude and her seemingly emotionless warrior persona. I still think she's pretty cool though and the character has grown on me. To be fair to Michonne, she did cut down her "walker pets" the very second it became necessary to do so and didn't have a second thought about it. You can't say the same thing about the Governor. Can't say I have the same sympathy for the Governor that you do but I guess I can see some of your points.
Other than that, Rick has annoyed me at times with his stubbornness and hardheadedness. I am glad he seems to be turning into a little less of a control freak though. Also, Hershel sometimes irks me a little for the opposite reason of Michonne. That being, I think he's sometimes a little bit to much
of a pacifist/pussy. If he were in charge they would have tried to appease the walkers somehow and have all been dead by now. I thought the same thing about Dale once but..... oh well.... poor Dale.***SPOILERS BELOW***
Ok, so for last weeks episode.....
Why did that crazy bitch feel it necessary to kill herself in front of Rick? She could have just let him leave then done it, or have not done it and tried to come with him, or have simply killed herself in the first place without going out to find someone to do it in front of. And how the hell did she manage to stay alive for three years with only one other person to protect her, and no solid place to hold up? Honestly, that woman and her place in the story was kind of unnecessary I thought. Seems like a part of the story-line that you would have seen in the deleted scenes menu on the season DVD or something. Whatever.... I still really liked the episode.
Did anyone else notice that Carl, in his dealings with the other kids, seems to have taken on his father's tendencies of being bossy and dictatorial? I suppose the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
So, now we are left to wonder what killed that pig, and what killed Carl's little nerd friend. Is something about the virus going airborne? Is it something in the water supply? Of course the pig didn't become a little piggy-walker and not everyone is sick, so that would seem to rule out the water supply. Could the Governor have something to do with it? Could the dude who got his leg caught under the wine shelf during the scene where the walkers were falling through the ceiling be a governor operative and have something to do with it? Questions that will be answered soon, I suppose. Peace,
PS. The store in the scene with walkers dropping through the ceiling had cases of beer from Georgia-based micro brews everywhere! Sweetwater IPA and Terrapin Rye Pale Ale all over the place. Great stuff! All that quality brew gone to waste. If I had been in there, I would have risked getting eaten to run out with a case of it. Especially the IPA.
