I keep trying to figure stuff out, like why zombies are in herds now, why they're clustered around the high school, piecing together things from last season that were said and putting them to this season.  Love this show.

Did you watch "the talking dead" after the show?  The producer dude said the herds and certain other things will be explained in time.  My poop question even came up but he didn't want to go there.   ;D

Does anybody watch the webisodes?

I think they have six or seven of a series up and I watched over the past couple of days and thought they were pretty good.  Obviously they don't stick with the main characters, but provided an interesting back story for one of the walkers we saw in the first episode.  It was somewhat gut wrenching, especially if you are a parent.

Darryl's grown on me a lot.  He's no Merl.

Me too - he is definitely coming into his own now that he is away from his brother.  He is becoming one of my favortie characters.  It really wouldn't bother me much if the walkers did away with Shane - he bugs the piss out of me.

AMC just renewed them for Season 3, gotta love the quick pick-up. Both episodes this season have been ratings gold apparently.

I agree, up with Darryl, down with Shane.

See, from a Zombie survivalist POV, I'd want Darryl and Shane...  I could basically do away with anyone but the two cops and Darryl, haha.

After tonight's episode, you might want to rethink keeping Shane around, Jesse.

I stayed up to watch last night.  Damn!!  I wonder how the Shane twist is going to work out.

A decent effort, seemed like an episode more focused on laying thr groundwork for future plot development.

The Asian kid and redhead making goo goo eyes, more backstory on Darryl, Dale/Andrea tension, etc.

I guess the black dude is going to heal up and come back from crazytown?

Not much a surprise at the end there. You had to figure when they cut away there was going to be a "reveal" later on. Poor Otis. He really should have used that last bullet on Shane.

Not sure what to make of the Travis Bickle moment. His character treads the line between good and evil anyway, so hard to say if he is really going off the deep end at this point. (BTW ladies - you can close your drooling mouths now, yes dude has nice abs)

I had to watch the scene with him and the wife twice at the end to figure out what she said. At first I assumed it was just "Thanks" but the second time it sounded like she said "Stay". Yeah, great idea honey.

I have some bad hearing and sometimes when I can't catch something with all the background noise (kids, wife), I use the CC feature. It works wonders.

So did Shane really need to shoot the fat dude?  They seemed to be making their way out of the school just fine - gimpy and everything, but still.

Well walker was nifty....and gory.  Looks like the dude with one hand will be on next week's episode (still haven't seen the first 2 episodes of season 1)  I know he's Darryl's brother, but ?

Also going to be difficult trying to hide from the dead with a screaming baby me thinks.

The walkers kept cutting them off from the truck.  Shane shot Otis so he would move even slower and the walkers would be distracted by the fresh meat.

I was a little surprised that Darryl didn't hang around the house a little more, looks like someone little was hiding out there.

I'm real curious to see how Mer;e's return is handled!

It seems to me as if Darryl is a bit more dedicated to the group than when he started.  I wonder if he's realized how bad a guy Merel (sp?) really was and how he'll handle it.  I wonder if he'll just take the opportunity to knock him off if the opportunity presents itself.

I wonder if Darryl is planning on going back to that house with a little backup possibly and then wait and see who shows up.

Wow, it's been 24 hours now and I can barely even remember what happened in that episode. Glen got laid, check. Well walker - cool. Lots of hand wringing from Rick.

So how did that dude even end up in the well? Did he just fall in? No one is concerned they have zombies strolling around the property?

Still don't get how the house is supposed to be safe with no motion detectors, fortifications, even a lookout of any kind. And no guns?

Yeah, it seemed clear that Sophia was hiding in that house, wonder why he didn't even mention this to the mom later. Seemed to give up a little quick on that.

Return of Merle should be epic next week. Cannot wait.

Or Merle's in that house...   :-X

Good episode setting up next week I thought.  Well guy was weird though, and I agree, I'd like to know why a random zombie was in there, and why'd nobody ever notice?

I find the lack of fortification at the farm a tad odd too.  I wonder how many people Herschel has sent out into the quagmire too, to have thsi rule already sort of firm and established.  He's lost Otis...  I'd think he'd maybe be a bit more open to some "good" people being around for simply protection since as the Vatos pointed out, the peopel you're going to meet won't be the good ones most likely.

Survivors are going to be Shane-types.  Do waht you have to, to live.

Quick question before tonight's episode - uh - how long has Rick been back?
