I think I remember lamps being on, so that would lend itself to operating on a generator.

Davy Jones dying sucks.  I've always been a pretty big fan of the Monkees.  Several years ago my wife bought me their box CD set.  I remember watching them in the afternoons in the mid 80's, first on some local channel out of Lubbock, TX and then on Nickelodeon.

I can get on board with that.  Robots kicking robot ass...what can be wrong with that?

I know a lot of people don't care too much for Bay.  I love explosions and action, so bring it on.  He makes great Saturday afternoon action flicks.

Rick was more of a man for putting Sophia down than Shane could ever hope to be.

I think this is key.  For the sake of the group, and Rick as their "leader," it was probably best that he was the one to pull the trigger on Sophia.

Great episode last night.  I was waiting for Rick's pair to drop and I certainly think they did.  I was thinking he'd swing in Shane's direction, while at the same time, I think we also saw Shane come back towards Rick a little bit.

One person that drives me crazy is freakin' Dale.  That dude is like a middle school girl who wants to start drama.  It's like being at work when I'm watching him on TV.  I grant that he's a voice of reason, but seriously dude....

It's back tonight! Team Shane versus Team Rick? Who will you follow?!?!

Funny that you put it this way.

I think Rick is going to be pulled Shane's direction, pretty drastically.  But at the same time, I think Shane is going to mellow a bit and become a bit more compassionate...maybe not much, but some.

Bill, I've felt the story has been a bit slow, but little bits and pieces of interesting stuff seems to get thrown in each episode.  The mid-season finale  ::) was really good and was somewhat of a cliffhanger to the second half.  The second half is really supposed to push the story along IIRC.

Season 3 to have 16 episodes.  I think I can get on board with this.  I know beggars can't be choosers, but I hate short seasons that so many networks seem to be doing.  I understand it's usually a financial issue, but I love me some zombie slayin'.

I've thought hard about picking up the graphic novels.  But I'm too engrossed in the show and don't want any spoilers at all.  I understand that the show has deviated from the novels, but there have been indications (saw this on the last Talking Dead) that some more of the novels are going to be put into the show plot.

So before the holidays I installed a waterheater...  That was a learning experience, a pain in the ass, and not fun.

Good to know.  When I replace ours I'll just get Home Depot to do it.

Recently, as in the last few months, my wife and I finished painting and "remodeling" our bedroom.  We didn't really do anything beyond paint, new furniture, and replace drapes (still trying to decide on a new set). 

I also replaced a rusted out P-trap today.  Other than that, I've been too busy with school work and teaching new stuff at work to do much on the house.

We went to go see Mission Impossible last week. I loved it and thought it was the best one so far.  I was glad to see an MI movie were the plot was easy to follow.

Also, my wife got me to watch Black Swann last night because I bought the DVD for her for Christmas.  Pretty good movie and I can't even stand "artsy" type movies.

My wife and I take a date night once a month and decided on Friday to go see the Muppets.  I watched them sparingly as a kid, but my wife grew up with it always playing.  I laughed through the entire thing and loved the movie.

Would I take it over a zombie slaying movie, probably not...but very, very good for the family.

I thought last night was pretty good.  I'm interested to see how Rick shooting Sophia is going to turn out.  I imagine her mom is going to be pretty pissed that he left her alone in the first place after she ran off.  I thought it was pretty sad the way she turned out and didn't think that was going to happen.

Shane went freakin' crazy and I'm stuck on if that was a good or a bad thing.  I'm wondering if Rick is about to flip and become a bit more aggressive when dealing with what he wants. 

  My wife swore to me she wasn't going to watch the show and she actually stays up with me and has watched the past couple of episodes before heading off to sleep.

I want to say I read something like February. 

I didn't pay any attention to the manicured lawns. I was just ready to see some zombie slaying last night and we got a bit so I was happy.  Hopefully next week we'll see a lot of it.  Overall though, good episode last night IMO.
