i think they know they have 13 episodes to work with so why should we work really hard on the beginning... hopefully well see the drama end they move on out of the farm and into adventure again lol
Yeah.. I'm thinking they created the sophia situation and some other stuff to drag the story on.. they increased the episodes and cut the budget.. they have to take that into account when making the show.
As far as Shane goes though.. Not sure if I like how he went from depressed because he thought he finally had the chick he loved and it was ruined, to straight up murder. I mean up until then I felt for the guy. He wasn't wrong for making a move.. and from that one scene with lori outside the school to pick up carl it almost sounds like she doesnt even want rick.
K..that sounds wicked soap operaish.. also they do need more zombies.
I'm tired of all the moping and crying around the kids' bed. We get it. He's hurt. He might not make it. Stop with the wringing of the hands and the crying to fill a quarter of the last three episodes.
Also... tired of searching for Sophia. It really does seem like filler... and yes, I hated the pregnancy test thing and Glenn and Maggie in the drugstore. I realize it is character development, but it is not at all interesting. See Boardwalk Empire (or just about any other HBO show) for lessons on interesting character development.
On the other hand, I loved the effects with the well walker, and the preview for the next episode... MERLE! Am also loving the foreshadowing concerning the barn full o' zombies. Looking forward to that bit, when all hell should break loose.
Oh and post 10,000 for me!!!
All of this stuff at the farm is setting the stage for some serious conflict. These "boring" episodes give you time to better know the characters. Good shows depend on good characters and that takes a little time. It is also why I love series format over movies. Character development is best when done naturally and not rushed. I like seeing characters evolve over time. One reason I find Breaking Bad so amazing. That show has a ton of "boring" episodes that set up plot lines.
Boring/slow episodes are essential to produce a great show. If you want non-stop action this show really is not for you, despite the zombies.
Name some movies that were non-stop action and had a story worth a shit, besides Young Guns that is.
In the talking dead show, someone asked why there isnt any fat zombies. The hosts seemed to have a difficult time answering the question, but it seems pretty obvious to me. Fat people would be the first people to die obviously, so the fact that they can't runaway fast enough means they are eaten. Most people that turn into zombies would have been bitten and then escaped, but if you obviously aren't capable of escaping, then you are devoured entirely. Hence, no fat zombies.

Also tired of the Sophia thing being dragged on.
The thing that annoys me the most though is how fast the zombie's move depending on the situation. When they were being chased in the school the zombie's were practically running after them in the hall. Other times you can escape them by walking slightly fast. Just a pet peeve I guess because movies and tv have used this to create suspense since forever.
