Like many of you - I didn't like hardwick at first and that was when it was 30 min - i think they were trying to cram too much into a short show and he was way too hyper. But when it went to 60 min, I've felt he's evened out his over-enthusiastic geekdom and is a little more tolerable. I also agree the producers like gayle-ann or nicotero plus cast are better - I guess they will be on more during the second have of the season since filming will be over.

Another really good episode, imho ;)
I like how urgent the situations inside and outside became as Hershel tended to and dispatched the dead while the fence attack was cool to see!
This was a great episode for Maggie/Lauren fans as she was showcased very well - again imho :)
They didn't shy away from talking about Carol, I like how Maggie kept asking Rick about her and I'm glad he didn't mince words or underplay it.
But once Daryl and Tyreese find out Rick cut her loose - all heckdoodle is gonna break loose between those two - IF the reveal of the Gov doesn't force them to deal with another threat instead of having time to fight about Carol.
I'm still very satisfied with the pacing, story telling and character development so far this season!

Good real world discussion, my friends at work and I discussed some of this recently. Whether it was an EMP that totally knocked out all electronics, the huge loss of people to run the power plants, service the grid etc. most things we take for granted would cease to work. I know they can't dwell too much on the details of why there's no electricity, where do they get gas from - and how is it still good; wouldn't part of it evaporate enough that it wouldn't have the chemical potency to work? And how after all this time, why aren't more walkers decomposing faster due to less 'fresh meat' for them to feast on?

now let's see who lives and who dies; can the search team of michonne, daryl, bob and tyreese get the meds - if there any still any left? Will hershels' elderberry drink help those who aren't too sick eventhough he himself is most definitely infected. will the walkers finally push over one of the fences or will more of them get partially shredded on the fence?

Finally saw several of these at TRU recently. They look pretty good, with Andrea being the least but still not bad. I really dig the zombie guards in riot gear.

Part of the new 'threat' is what's causing the walker build up and in the previews they've shown dead half-eaten rodents so someone in the prison is 'feeding' the walkers thus causing more to show up - kind of like stray cats lol
and it's entirely possible that maybe 'some' of the woodbury refugees are still loyal to the Gov eventhough he's missing at the moment.
but the biggest mystery right now is what's up with the bleeding eyes zombies?

I thought it was good, nothing stuck out at me that made me hate it. I like how they made some cryptic references to Coulson's "recovery" so I'd like to see how that plays out. The cast is ok but a little bland; it would be good to see their development so hopefully as the season goes along things will get better. But since Disney owns ABC and Marvel, I don't see it getting cancelled but will run at  least an entire season. I also think that if they can squeeze in some type of cameo or some visible reference to the Avengers to help keep it tied in, that will help out. I'll definitely keep watching.

If they keep to the types of flashbacks we've had in the original Walking Dead, I'd be fine with that.

+1  I think Lost got confusing towards the end of the story because of the time travel and multiple times people were on and off the island, but I love the first few years of flashing back to who the characters were before the crash.  I'd love to see more of that in a new show.

True, done right the flashbacks can provide awesome insight into a character, their past lives, motivations etc. I just hope they can focus on the quality of the story, character development as seen in season 1. I know they have a budget and make up fx, tons of 'walker - extras' other special fx cast money and they have a certain amount tied up in salaries - Andrew Licoln, Norman Reedus probably get the most with maybe Steven and Lauren getting recognition as up-and-coming stars.
They film the Prison on the Production lot in Senoia, GA so other location shoots take up some budget.  Let's hope they continue to tell interesting stories for a long time to come!

How about an ultra-deluxe RV with Dale?

yeah maybe he'll come in a 'perpetual angst' mode with alternate ripped guts variation ;)

Awesome news.  I hope they run it off season, so we have some WD all year around.

I think Kirkman indicated whatever story they go with won't be tied to the comics, so I'm kinda hoping they go with either a concurrent story from maybe a military or civilian/Medical POV as well as try to show other locations either in US or worldwide of the zombie/walker apocalypse. Just hope they don't do a "Lost" style of story telling with Flashbacks/Flash-sideways as they called them; that just makes things too confusing. And I agree if they can air it over the summer to fill in the gaps between the Fall/Spring break up format that would be good!

I saw the new comic series at TRU last week and they looked pretty good. Riot gear Glen was the best, the Gov/Penny were cool and I liked how the one Pet Walker had interchangeable parts from the extras in Penny's set so you if you bought TWO pet walkers you could use the extra head in Penny's set to make the other one of Michonne's pets. I think they're named Terry and Mike or something like that.
Now if/when the latest TV series figs comes out, I"m gonna HAVE to get me a Maggie ;)

Finally saw some of the new TBS figs at target, mostly the 3.75" figs but they had ONE 6" R2 on the shelf, after reading the reviews for several figs, they only ones I'd get are of course Boba Fett, but I dig the Sandtrooper - why they made that one vs the clean Stormtrooper first I don't know. But those are the only two I'd pay $20 for until they put out a Vader and clean Stormtrooper.
But it was cool to finally see something NEW on the shelves after such a long time.

60
In no particular order:
1. Dagobah Yoda (w/ separate vader/luke helmet head)
2. Dagobah Luke (jedi training)
3. Adm. Ozzell (w/alt force-choked head)
4. Gen. Veers
5. Capt./Adm. Piett
6. Rogue Two (with alt/bloody nose head)
7. Han Solo (regular outfit on Falcon/Bespin - not post torture)
8. B-a-D C-3p0 (Bespin blaster effect)
9. Boba Fett (re-release)
10. Rebel Echo base staff: Gen. Riekeen, 'John Ratzenburger' rebel, Ion Control chick or generic Hoth rebel soldiers.

And although not figures but NEW playsets: Hoth Echo Base control room, Hoth Hanger, Vaders' SD bridge set w/ private chamber (a la 500th vader); new Dagobah and Bespin playsets.

We can dream, right?
