Argh!  I got my Season 2 DVD, but have only made it through 3 episodes so far.  Definitely not enough time to catch up before Sunday.  I traded in my comcast box for a TiVo card, so don't have On Demand anymore.  We don't get AMC through Comcast, but I did see that Season 2 was On Demand when we first signed up.  We Century Link in another room of the house, but I have no way to record off that signal, so it's watch live or not at all.  Bugger!

That was great, the walking through the prison was so tense
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

Wow.  So awesome.  I wasn't sure if they'd actually show a decapitation on TV, but they did not disappoint.  That actress IS Michonne.

Great episode to start off the season.  It's a shame I have to wait until Sunday to see what's going to happen next.

This was a great episode and a great start to the new season! I was impressed with the better writing, acting and FX, I'd read online accounts about how difficult the production tried to make the prison and interviews with various actors confirmed it was pretty rough. But the end result was a fun-filled thrill ride! And my favorite zombie stomping cyber GF is back in action!

Yeah, that was a really excellent debut, I was only bummed they didn't go for a two hour premier with limited commercial interruptions.

What I Loved:
ALL the zombie killing action...that is the amount of zombie killing that needs to happen every week!
Gas Mask Face-Off Zombie! (no question that gets made into an action figure)
Born-Again-Hard Rick dissing Lori
Carl dissing Lori
Rick hacking off Hershel's leg - that was epically brutal
Michonne!!!

What I didn't love so much:
Lori still being on alive, on the show, etc
Carl/Hershel's daughter burgeoning romance - blecchhh (age difference anyone?)
going through the cell blocks in the dark at the end there? What was the rush?


Not much to complain about, other than the usual. (LORI SUX)

I love how she is able to comprehend that Rick and Carl are mad at her, but she completely fails to grasp the actual reason why. It has nothing to do with her "putting the knife in Rick's hand" - it has everything to do with her reaction AFTER the fact. That she had the AUDACITY to get mad at Rick for doing something SHE SPECIFICALLY ASKED HIM TO DO!!! Damn right dude should be pissed. Carl is just taking his lead.

Those prisoners at the end are going to be fun to watch for the next few weeks.  ;)

Carl just has a crush on whats-her-name. If it gets mutual...ick.

Yeah, the rush to secure the whole prison and doing stupid things. It's easy to second guess the characters after the fact, but the dark cell block mess seemed like a potential disaster from the get go...especially when you take the ONLY DOCTOR you have with you when your WIFE IS 9 MONTHS PREGGERS. No reason for Herschel to have gone with them on what amounted to a stumbling around in dark passage ways. And you'd think at this point they'd have learned to be suspicious of any corpse they haven't put down themselves, but success leads to carelessness

I never like the "stealth" zombie thing.  If it's not up and moving then it shouldn't be reanimated.  They don't sleep or play dead.  Seems cheap to have a safe corpse attack.

That was a beautiful episode.   >:D
Face coming off in gas mask, Hershel's leg lopped off.  Carnage at it's finest.

For the life of I don't know why they didn't just start banging pops n pans together to get the zombies attention and start poking them thru the fence like they already did and pretty successfully.  And another thing if the horde came to the farm because they heard Carl's gunshot why wouldn't they all start coming to the fence when they were picking them off in the field in the first place? 

Bill I agree with you on the "stealth" zombie thing that would almost suggest intelligence/strategie on the zombies part.

Another question in the beginning when they pan out of the zombie eye, how the h3ll can they even see, I know not all of them are like that but in that situation.

Another another question I can understand zombies surviving winter, cuz they're already dead whether they eat or not, but don't the bodies continue to decay and they should basically colapse on themselves as the muscle decays and bones turn brittle?

There's no good scientific explanation on how zombies would survive.  I mean, the brain goes to mush way earlier than organs and muscle.

Here's a good analysis of what would really happen to the "walking dead"

So unless the zombie germ instills some form of immunity & preservation to the dead bodies, they wouldn't get far.
