Title: Walking Dead -Season 4 trailer arrives Friday
Post by: 240 is Back on March 10, 2013, 04:31:25 PM
I finally watched all the old episodes on Netflix.  Wow, season 1 may have been the best of all of them.   Napalming the streets.... just some really cool sci fi imagery on the show.

Netflix is particularly nice because you can fast fwd thru all Loris' whining.  Looking fwd to tonight's episode.  Governor getting off'd finally?

Did the same....got into it at the beginning of season two, after enduring her meltdowns a few times I FF everyone time she opened her mouth....so glad she is dead.

Thank God Rick seems to have snapped out of that dickhead state he was in

yeah he was quite the little bitch early on.  "But we have to go back, i gave my word, what if hershel gets drunk and feels bad", and walking into a gun battle at a bar.

He finally manned up against Shane, that was good to see.

indeed!   I started about 2-3 episodes into the season 3, where they find the prison.   Season 1 ended completely badass.  Season 2 was great but the end, just lost in the woods near the prison, was a little less dramatic.  Great season though.   Netflix won't give up the first half of season 3 yet.  I've seen most of them.

I admit tho... walking to the fridge at 2am after watching zombies while working...  those cats scare the shit outta me sometimes.

You don`t need Zombie movies to show that aspect of humanity.  All one has to do is look at history.

I don`t even know what that is.  I just don`t see the appeal to zombie anything.  Its an unfortunate meme that has spread into its own genre, just like the zombie itself- it won`t die and keeps spreading until everyone ends up watching and believes it to be "the best thing I have ever seen, dude".


I have never watched any of this so can you tell me how something that is dead is reanimated?  Are they all Jesus Christs or something?

This TV series is absolutely horrible because:

1. It's unrealistic in almost ever which way possible.

2. An unfathomable level of make believe is expected by the viewer.

3. The production is stingy and cheap.

4. It's depressing and total waste of time.

5. There is little to no plot, it's only to set up gore effects which are unrealistic and actually crudely photoshopped (not even CGI, WTF?).  


If it had been realistic in some ways (especially the ill stricken humans), interesting plot with a professional production, it could be worth watching for entertainment purpose.

Decent actors, I'll give it that.

To me it's like pro wrestling.  I know it's fake as shit.  I see a million logic inconsistencies when watching, even if I can temporarily accept the premise of the show, where the show will break the rules it created for itself.

Still, it's really entertaining if you're into end of the world shows, and zombie heads exploding.

Define what you expect for realism in a post apocalyptic zombie world.

I expect people to behave much worse in a post apocalyptic world than mere zombies. And if you want to add the zombie concept for some reason, which I don't have a problem with, there are plenty of diseases, drugs, conditions to pick from.

The Zombies in Walking Dead are over board. They come of as fermented sacks of shit, blood and puss. Realistically when cells in a biological system have gone through enough oxidation and fermentation due to lack of oxygen they can not resurrect or resume any sort physical function again.

 I see your point about entertainment The whole reason I watched it was the interesting concept + good acting.

The writer of the show is a bit silly as far as dialog and the choices the individuals take though.

If you look at it like that, you'll have trouble with many, many more forms of entertainment in addition to the Walking Dead.  Suspension of disblief is required for a ton of stuff.  If real world properties of cell oxidation are preventing you from enjoying a show, I don't know what to tell you.  Perhaps you're more of the documentary type.

But either way, you don't know exactly what turned everyone, or the effect it has on the oxidation of cells.

Rami, you may like the book "One Second After" by William Forstchen.   No zombies, but it's about emps knocking out power and communications (anything computerized is knocked out [most cars/transportation etc]) to the U.S. and the resulting breakdown of humanity/society and ensuing chaos.  Life changes pretty fast when they can't get ahold of food, meds, etc.   After the book lays the back story for the characters it gets pretty good.

When Frank Darabont created the show he wanted to show the struggle of mankind, their emotions and survival instinct in a post apocalyptic world. The zombie aspect is second which I think is frustrating some people when the gore/action level is less.
Great show, some episodes have been a bit slow in places but it's gotta be tough to keep a good mix, constant zombie killing would wear thin quickly.

I've enjoyed the governor this season.  The tv version is a lot better than his comic incarnation.  The governor in the comics is your stereotypical cackling thumb twiddling villain with no depth.  I think Michonne is better on the show than in the comics as well.  I've been able to tolerate her on the show , where as, in the comic she is intolerable.

i'm bored with the prison.   i'd like to see them travel more.  maybe run to the coast when another herd arrives, and climb onto a boat to end season 3.  that'd be badass.  we'd have the off-season to wonder where they're headed.  they could end up in europe and change things up a bit... seeing London under zomzbie control would be badass.   at least float up the coast to NYC or DC... that'd be awesome.  bored with georgia wilderness.

The interesting thing about the show now is there is no way Rick and his crew should stay in the prison and fight. In real life, they would have hightailed it out of there when the Governor showed up and dropped off the walker bomb. So much easier to kill walkers than it is to go to war against people with guns. In fact, when a 9 year old kid can kill walkers like its nothing, maybe going out to the real world is a better option than taking on a crazy man in the Governor.

yea that sounds pretty good, for me it's visual stuff that makes the show excell. I like seeing all the deserted stuff as that gives it the real atmosphere, the first season in the city stuff was brilliant.

When Frank Darabont created the show he wanted to show the struggle of mankind, their emotions and survival instinct in a post apocalyptic world. The zombie aspect is second which I think is frustrating some people when the gore/action level is less.
Great show, some episodes have been a bit slow in places but it's gotta be tough to keep a good mix, constant zombie killing would wear thin quickly.  

Darabont didn't create it, Kirkland did.

Darabont is just putting the comic to the screen.

What's shown in the comic is exactly that, to show the struggle of mankind and that not everything is black and white.

I hope tonight is a really cool gun battle.   Supposed to be a betrayl tonight too.   

I'm betting that the governor's guard (who chatted with daryl) joins their crew next season.  They made him too likeable with too much back story to just blow him away.

what will threaten things and deliver the "oh shit!" moment for season 4?   Laurie comes limping out of the wood chomping on shane's dick?  daryl and merle's older brother "played by gary busey" decides to rile things up?

i think, in terms of a show that entertains a zombie world...

it was a realistic season finale.  Invaders to prison are hit with a clever ruse, but half make it out alive.  in "hollywood", they all get killed and governor dies after a heroic fistfight from Rick himself.   

Governor losing it under the pressure and shooting his own men - realistic, based upon history.  Unceremonious end for them. 

Andrea dying - realistic.  Handcuffed with a walker, nobody should make it out without a bite.  They killed her off.

bringing the people back and forming a new community - realistic and opens up a lot of potential.

Carl turning into a psycho - believable.  He wasn't this gentle kid hugging his dad.  he's a stone killer. 

Governor slinking away to hide and fight another day, realistic.  Most leaders do that, they don't do that final stand.

A certain death tonight felt forced and specifically done for shock value.  The scheme of the show seems to be those that died earlier in the comic live longer and/or die later in the show.  Those who live longer in the comic die earlier in the show.

Nope.  I hated the season 2 season finale.  I thought season 1 finale was very good.

I thought this was *pretty* good.... but in terms of what we see on most shows these days - those heroic last stands, etc.... Here's what a typical season finale would be...

Big battle at prison.  Rick is wounded in the arm but manages to dive in front of carl to save him from a bullet.  Gov gains the upper hand, but then rick delivers a one-liner and stabs him thru the eye patch.

Carl is soft again, crying "I love you dad" and dropping the gun.   Tyrese walks in just in time to save andrea from a lunging Milton.  Everyone makes up, all the bad guys die, etc etc.

In terms of season finales, it was better than expected.  Killed off some liked characters and the bad guy got away in the end without a single redeeming thing about him.  Shit, how many shows let a guy as hated as the Guv get away in teh end?

You people expect nonstop action in EVERY episode? That is so dumb. Some episodes are slower than others because they have to build up the suspense. I think it would be stupid and unrealistic to have every episode chocked with intense violence and action. That is not what makes a show a good show.

Post by: 240 is Back on March 31, 2013, 06:51:56 PM
maybe governor will be like merle.....   disappear for a few episodes or even a season, then re-emerge with a new army or something.  

spoiler alert - i read they didn't take down the woodbury set - they're using it to film the first few episodes of next season... so either they're just using it for a few random scenes... or the gov comes back there or soemthing?  dunno.


In terms of a realistic ending, you got it.  It wasn't hollywood, but it was believable.  None of that one-liner as the hero kills the villian.  The huge prison invasion wasn't a hollywood battle.  Andrea didn't somehow kill a zombie with one hand.   Governor didn't go down with the ship.

Comic book nerds need to get over the fact this isn't the comic. It's BASED on the comic, and it's a very well done show. Like 240 said they don't take the obvious way out all the time, and they don't always miraculously survive and come out on top.

Andrea dying - realistic.  Handcuffed with a walker, nobody should make it out without a bite.  They killed her off.



She got the other hand FREE.  ::)

Maggie or Glenn should have been killed in that shootout.  That's who the fuck should have died, wasn't realistic.  Carol is not good fighting zombies hand - hand, so I could have seen her die, not Laurie.

Who the fuck is there to watch next season?  I could give shit about Herschel, Maggie or Glenn.

Yeah, I like Carl going psycho.  He put Rick in his place.

Andrea dying was worst than Merle.  I didn't think it could get worst after last week.

FUCK THE WALKING DEAD!  THEY'RE KILLING THE SHOW.

Next season will be an old folks home in the prison.

No, but I expected a better conclusion and the prospect of something refreshing for next year.  It could still happen, but another full season of the group vs the governor with a Woodbury backdrop will drag.  Carl was right with everything he told rick.

But, my big problem was that this was like watching an episode of the A-Team - Glenn and Maggie trap the goveror's crew in a kill box at point blank range with automatic weapons and body armor, and nobody gets hurt.   This show is one of the most brutal out there - that should have been a slaughter.


Title: Re: Walking Dead -Tonight
Post by: 240 is Back on April 01, 2013, 05:04:26 AM
agreed there should have been a slaughter there. 

Had the governor not shot his own team, the prison group would have squandered their only chance at a surprise... governor could have returned a week later and had a much more effective attack.

And in reality, I think Rick and friends would have just ran from the prison and set up elsewhere... Governor was intent on killing them, had all these mlitary weapons... they would have run in season 1 or 2.

SO in retrospect, the gun battles/strategy were weak, but it did have a somber average ending, like much of life.

I don't think it's that cut and dried. They win some they lose some.

X3 on the prison battle, very anticlimactic. There should have been more bloodshed. And i was hoping that the prison location would be gone.  IMO it was intentional, and the Governor will ultimately force them out and do some real damage in the season premiere next fall. The show has a way of doing that, you think "well that was bullshit" and then it all comes together in the end.

I think it was a good finale. Maggie and Glenn are normal people. They were more worried about taking cover. They did the only thing they could do. They wouldnt win in a firefight. This show is how groups of people handle extreme adversity. The zombies are just a back drop.

And this is the same woman they spent a season showing us can skewer zombies left and right with nothing more than a Swiss Army knife.

Agree...the last 3 episodes were direct buildups to the prison assault, and they set off some firecrackers and everyone ran away....WTF. It didnt suck, but the entire episode lacked any real tension. I Don't read the comics, is Tyrese such an uncle Tom bitch in the comic ?

If the governor builds up another army, then they should cancel the show.  Rick and crew bring back a bus load of old people, but don't grab those military transports and WMD.  ::)  It's not like Darryl couldn't toss his motorcycle in the back of one with those 50 mm guns.  ::) Walking Dead writers and directors are fucking up big time.  BTW, the director/writer, who wrote the story-line of Andrea's demise, was released.  I don't think the producers had her death in their PLANS.  No matter how good the show is, you can't write off TWO main characters back - back like that and leave a baby no one sees or hears as a main character.  Carol and Darryl relationship > Maggie and Glenn, but they will fuck up and kill Carol off shortly.

The baby isn't going to replace one of them.  Tyrese and Co. will, or they'll develop new characters.  This wasn't one of the problems with the show, especially getting rid of Andrea, who was pretty universally hated.

I really dislike when writers forget that adults are watching the show. In the earlier episodes Rick, a cop, doesn't search the area around the cot before tying the guy up who just tried to kill them. Then he doesnt off the Governor when the governor says he wants their surrender. Just not being consistant.

Then of course as everyone mentions, Andrea knew Milton was going to turn as soon as he died, which was likely, and she has to be prompted to hurry up??
Automatic weapons kill NO ONE during the prison assault? The bad guys had a grenade launcher for christs sake. It was like watching an episode of the A Team where no one gets hurt.   
And of all the things to take from the town while the soldiers are away is a bus and old people? How about you set up an ambush on the returning 3 survivors and take them out, then you have a nice little town. And since The governor was ahead of Ricks group, and would have beat them back to the town, how could they just load up a bus and drive off anyway?

Yeah, but it's realistic though. 

In real life, the leaders of the battle retreat and let their men die.  They hide out for a few months with rations.  Maybe they come back, maybe not.  I think that part of it was believable... Gov and his crew high tail it out of there.

ALthough why he didn't return to woodbury, that was a little baffling?

Since it was a kid who probaby wasn't a hardened killer, it makes more sense that he would drop it, especially if Carl had the drop on him anyway. Another example of how the shows director made it a sloppy situation.

While I think Carl certainly has issues, in this instance, it's hard to get too upset with him shooting. The guy hesitated, held on to the gun when told to drop it even though he was going through the process of attempting to drop it ( it must have been super glued to his hand and he was too embarrassed to say it) he wasn't dropping it. The guy did come to the prison to kill them after all

kid came and shot at them to kill, wouldnt throw his gun down instantly, everyone has trust issues so his hesitation sealed his fate, tough shit.

Yeah, I thought about that.  He was inching to Carl slowly like he'd try to grab his gun when he passed him the rifle. Either he dropped it instantly, or I would have wasted him.  Fuck Herschel!  He's no Dale.

And if I was Carl, I'd say to Rick, I'm 10 years old and my wing man was 100 years old with one leg. Anyone bigger than me coming at us with a gun is going to get shot. End of story.

if you are an invading force....

and you are caught dead to rights at 10 feet...

and you are lucky enough to be ordered to drop the weapon...

you thank them, drop that weapon fast, and lie down on ground without being asked again lol....


Moving closer to the guy with gun "Here, take it from me" would get you capped in real life too.

It's obvious he'll return.  We just don't know when.  Michonne and he will fight.

It was weak, nonetheless.  A whole season built up to a confrontation that didn't happen.
exactly the entire back half of the season was masturbation without the payoff

It was intentionally ambiguos, they want the viewer to think how Rick wound have reacted, probably would have tussled with the guy and almost got himself killed, like he did with Morgan. Carl just shot the fucker.

when the show ends in 2 or 3 or 4 seasons...

it'll be Carl being the last man standing... watching over his little sister... as the rest of the team has all died out, the zombies are killed by starvation, and they start the world over.

His sister needs to die just like she does in the comics.

they said baby judith will have a much larger role next season. 

I wonder... they said the zombie would starve, but they didn't say how long that'd take.  Will that be the natural ending to the show?  zombies just start falling down one day, slowing down, etc?   i mean, the well-fed ones would last a little longer... but in terms of simple energy, they have to run out of steam eventually.

Why in the hell did they go back to the shotup prison in the first place? Why not get everybody to Woodbury and live in a normal town with a normal envirement? Everything is there like food weapons and all the rest they could have need....

I actually own the first three, hardcover volumes of the Walking dead. I'm glad I never finished the first one. I don't want to know the possible outcome before it happens  :-\

I finally saw the season finale. I agree with 240, it was good, but nobody in the prison getting hurt is ridiculous.

when they conclude the series after 5 or 6 seasons, we'll probably look at season 3 as the boring one.

Kinda like the Wire... Season 2, eh, average in retrospect.  Once they took it back to the streets with the dealing, things were much more awesome again.  

I'm betting they revisit season 1 when they film season 4... lots of science-y shit about what caused the zombies, some new govt people showing up, maybe some breakthru weapon while at the same time the zombies evolve or the herds get larger or something.  

They have to take teh show to the 'next level'.... shit is gonna get boring fast if it's just playing house in a prison all day.   maybe they have to do big food runs, and shit gets messy fast?

if you remember at the town, one zombie took a head shot, got back up and looked through the field.  Zombies will evolve a bit. I can some people with partial immunity, possibly phasing between a zombie state and humanity.  All I know is, Glenn and Maggie have to go.  I'd prefer to Emma Bell getting f##ked weekly.

Yeah, Season 3 was kinda boring, I would like them to come back to a big city for a couple episodes, they stay away of cities because there are too many zombies but visiting one for whatever reason would be cool.

Season 4 trailer comes out Friday.

http://www.amctv.com/shows/the-walking-dead

there is a new threat - not man, not zombie - something different that may wipe out everyone.  A plague?  Do zombies start decomposing and spreading some sickness?  That's my guess.  

What would be bigger & worse than people or zombies in season 4?

Keep in mind they filmed a nice chunk of this season INDOORS - at some old KMart or walmart store - that's where season 4 starts (supposedly).  Are they hiding indoors from something?


And no, 333386, zombie trayvon wouldn't be funny... allow me to undermine the joke before you make it lol
