I dont know why i never read the comics,i just have had a feeling merle is one of those characters most love to hate but he has more to him than is originnaly thought.A bit rough around the edges so to say.I can identify with that.Rick i am a bit lost on,i think this last episode though was a wake up call for him.


Yea I havent read the comics either. I did read the 2 books they came out with recently though. The first one Rise of the Govenor was really good. The second Road to Woodbury wasnt as good as the first. If you are into this show though I highly recomend both.

Yea I doubt Rick is gonna spend any more time chasing ghosts for awhile.

Some things are true, even if you dont believe them.

Through the highs and lows this show has me hooked,one of the only ones on tv in a long time i cant miss!I will give the books a try,i am usually one who reads the books then critiques everything though so i may wait a bit haha

Whatever you do, dont let season 2 turn you off. It slows down big time, but it goes out with a bang. Plus season 3 has just been amazing.

Agreed preach!The first episode of the second half of the split season was a bit slow though was kind of expected,this last episode rocked! :tu:  I also expect i will be a bit angry when the cliffhanger for this season comes up :lol:
I've heard that the second season is slow.  To be fair, though, I've never been much of a Zombie movie fan, so if we move away from zombies I don't think I'll be that much affected.  The character development will be there, and from what I see it will pay dividends in season 3.  Just what I've read, of course.... I don't think I'll be disappointed by season 2

Second season was slow, in terms of action but it allowed you to get to know the characters. I read somewhere that they didn’t really have the budget for the second season to make it as good as they would have liked until they realized how popular it was and then threw more money at it.

It still has quite a few shocks, twists and turns in it and picks up really well towards the end of season two.

By far the best Zombie film/tv program I have seen... I didn't even realize there was a game from the TV series out?

Yep, the game was released by Telltale Games and is available via download HERE for Steam (every now and then Telltale has a special where they'll let you download the first episode free, so if you wait you may get lucky to try episode 1 for free - but otherwise it's not that expensive a game to download).  There's five episodes, I've only played the first, but it's absolutely amazing.  The graphics aren't fantastic, but the way the story just ropes you in is great.  The choices you make all affect the way people relate to you, the group dynamics.  Not at all similar to other point-and-click adventure games I've played.

Look forward to it, the acting and storyline are superb and the build-up has a great pay-off.  I enjoyed the second season immensely but the third is even better which means the writers are just getting started.  :clap: :nw:

Well, I'm up to episode 7 from season 2. I don't know why people don't like season 2. It's not as great as season 1 but I'm still really enjoying it. I'm now really pumped for what's coming later :yes:

I know what you mean PA. I wasn’t disappointed at all with season 2, I loved the way it built the story around the character’s and allowed you to get to know them, I loved the twists and turns within the story. There was an obvious lack of death and gore but, I think the full structured storyline is far more important and wahts sets it aside from all the rest.

I really hope you don’t know the outcome or any spoilers to get the full effect but I am sure you do?

Enjoy. :tu:

I wouldn't call it slow,but I think it had to be more cerebral ,give what was going on .Also ,production and writers changed hands .
The series future was in question ,so I think they took it slow,so the audience and industry peeps could see where it would go with these guys .
If it was too over the top ,there could have been repercussions . I suspect so anyway

Miss me?

I like everything about the show..  As far as spoilers go the producers are very tight lipped and the tv show is far different then the comics so almost impossible to predict even for thos that read them.

Sittin back drinkin beer watchin the world take it's course.

What I meant in terms of spoilers is. PA hasn't seen season 2 or any of season 3. I meant I hope he didn't get to know what happens that would poil it for him, until he catches up with the new episodes.

I haven't seen any spoilers. I read this thread before I ever started watching so names and events went straight over my head. All I remember (I think I remember) that we're going to be introduced to a character named the Governor. That's about it.

Meanwhile, it's season two but just in cae I'll use spoilers
