I'm pretty proud of the show for having more than one black cast member and not killing them all off as soon as a new guy comes up

baby steps, show. baby steps

maybe my expectations are just so low at this point, but i didn't mind this one. they're basically just setting up future story lines (what's the infection, who's feeding the walkers, etc) that could be good. emphasis on could, of course. the death of rick's dream to never partake in violence anymore wasn't poignant or anything, but it was effective enough. plus maybe this will drive tyrese to finally be the badass he should be

i know it's the age old zombie argument, but god fucking dammit, i just cannot even REMOTELY buy the idea that the entire cell block was overrun by one dipshit walker who didn't even move away from his first victim until daylight. one dead in his sleep. maybe two. the rest is fucking horseshit lazy nonsense.

what's up with the yellow flowers? they're in the opening credits now, and i've seen them several times during the episodes. maybe it's a long shot, but is the flu theory just a red herring, and the flowers actually have something to do with the infections instead? i haven't dissected the episodes enough to be sure, so feel free to shoot that theory down....

Haha, I was so sure that Cutty (forget his name in this show) was going to die at the end of the last episode while he was following that trail of blood.

mostly rambling nonsense and random tangents. he just took the show where it shouldn't have gone...

at one point he said that the person feeding rats to the walkers was carol's daughter...

He also mumbled something about zombies being pregnant and Chris quickly said, "zombies cannot get pregnant Marilyn," and changed topic instantly to not let him get a word in.

I don't understand, are they trying to trick us into liking him now?

It's so fucked up to play with our emotions like that.

I guess we'll see what happens next week.

yeah, any kind of redemptive plot for him seems unearned. the character is too undeveloped and uneven for me to give a shit about him supposedly changing (which itself felt unearned -- he's walking around sad! he's turned over a new leaf!). and anyway, it's pretty obvious where this is going, and wasting a bunch of time having him learn to care about some family, lose another family, and go crazy again is just pointless. it really doesn't speak well for this writing staff that they think this character is interesting enough for this. just kill him already he's boring and terrible

shoulda killed him at the end of last season, obviously, rather than having him escape and have Michonne be useless for no apparent reason at the start of this season

man this season actually started off well looking at disease and sickness and stuff. like that was actually really interesting. this is just more generic horseshit and you're right, it's really unearned

Still disappointed they didn't have that epic prison showdown from the comics.... guess it wasn't really possible with how different the show was at that point

well, they say they want to keep things different so fans of the comic don't know what's coming....but that's stupid. the best thing about game of thrones is that they keep it as close to the source material as possible. and even less people read comic books as read fantasy novels. who cares? the vast majority of the audience doesn't read the books. just follow them as best as possible

well I also understand the logic of it, like it's also pretty great to tell a different story

it's just that they're really, really bad at it

I actually kinda liked last weeks episode. I think the guvna is a good character. But showing him looking all evil at the the prison at the end of episode 5 was a bad move. We now know what's gonna happen. Probably that he's gonna try to convince Rick and the gang that he's changed his ways, and that he wants to join them.
Where's the youngest daughter of Hershell by the way? Is she still alive? I didn't see her in the last few episodes I think.
