Amicable or not, it's not great news to lose executive producers two seasons in a row.  What is Kirkman or AMC's vision for the show?

Kirkman has always said that his intent is to provide a very LONG story about what happens after the infestation.  I imagine he plans to follow a fairly similar storyline to what appeared in the comics, though exploring/altering/building additional subplots and characters.  With the material that's out there now, they have enough for at least 3-4 more full seasons, and they'll have another 40 issues of the comic to feed from when they're done with that.  I'm not sure why the EPs keep leaving, but it isn't for lack of a long term plan.

I've been catching bits and pieces of the Walking Dead marathon on AMC today. Getting pretty excited for the mid-season premiere.

Unrelated, I was at Barnes and Noble tonight and saw some of the walking dead Graphic Novels. I had no idea they were black and white only illustrations. I just assumed they were in color.

At the end? Yeah, weird-o-rama. I was really pulling for the Rick/Tyreese bromance to blossom tonight, guess it was not to be.

The first 6 minutes were complete awesomeness. Epic chaos. And then later I was glad to see them all realize that bringing Merle back into the group was just not possible. That's the kind of weak crap lesser shows would throw together just for the contrived drama. Welcome to your new spin-off show "Walking Dixons"...

Not sure I am getting what's up between Glenn and Maggie. Just general PTSD tension? Seems like he was more pissed at Rick, which again seems kind of misplaced.

Those 2 white dudes with Tyreese and his lady look like some prime walkerbait.

Crazy-ass Rick though, what can you say...let's hope this does not last long because I was just getting used to born-again badass Rick.

Best hour I spend in front of the TV all week!

Thank goodness loud mouthed exposition Merle filled Rick in on goings on. 

Ghost of Christmas Past came to see Rick. All it takes is a baby crying to trigger his muh-muh-muh-mad-madness...

I think we will see Two spin-offs:

Already mentioned, The Walking Dixons...sounds cool, until we learn that half the episodes are flashbacks to their childhood with Donna Dixon as their mother.

The Michonne Ranger...she's out there on her own...alone. Most episodes have no dialouge. They later add a native american sidekick,  Grunto, who is a  zombie, of course.

Anyone catch The Talking Dead last night?  I want to personally thank fanboy Kevin Smith for christening Carl "Wyatt Twerp"

Best part of Walking Dead last night?  Daryl grabbing his bow on the way out of Woodberry.

I'd seen images of Ward Zombie online, but wasn't sure if you'd be able to point him out in the show.  Didn't know he'd get his own solo moment like that.

Was he the one that stuck his head through the "fence" at Woodbury?  I thought it might have been him given the "solo" moment.

I enjoyed the show last night quite a bit.  The first segment was riveting.  I did think it was awfully convenient that Darryl was able to get his bow back so easily! I hope crazy-Rick comes around and starts this reported bromance with Tyresse.  Tyresse looks like he'd be a good character for the show/group. 

Having said all that (and I haven't read the graphic novels at all), I hope that the writers are able to turn some of the story back into struggling to survive against the Zombies... I'm less interested in a fued between Rick's group and the Govenah.  Maybe, I'm in the minority about this.

Different zombie.  Hines is on the left here, and the peeking zombie is on the right.



In Hines' scene he was standing by himself, they showed him for about 4 seconds.

A) The Hines Ward came was just great!
B) I would have rather seen daryll have to knock the guy out and as the guy falls, have the loded crossbow pop up in the air, he catches it, spins and nails a walker.  vs. just grabbing it off of him.  It still works as sort of a "gimme that" moment and all, but I thought it could have been a little better.

Good epsiode, sets a lot of things up for the season.

Thanks man...  Yeah I saw his pic back, a month ago anyway on Twitter, so I've been anxious to see if he had a good solid scene, and he does.

I like to think he actually has been zombified and that was him. :)  Celebs are zombies too.

He played, I believe college ball, with T-Dawg so that's the correlation there I guess.
