The Walking Dead Season 2 Discussion *Spoilers*



I know this is two days early, but I figured some people might not have read the season two updates thread yet would still like to know a couple of things before the premiere arrives.

The prequel webisode series Torn Apart is online at the AMC website. The series follows "Bicycle Girl" (whom Rick shot as a zombie at the end of the series premiere) after the zombie outbreak has started but prior to the events of the first episode.

In addition, this season AMC will be airing a half-hour talk show called The Talking Dead. Hosted by Chris Hardwick (Nerdist podcast, Web Soup), the show premieres directly after Sunday's episode, then moves to its regular timeslot of Fridays at 11pm EST with its second episode.

A couple reminders:
  1. The season premiere will be 90 minutes long, and will be followed by six more episodes over the next six weeks. After that, the season will go on hiatus until it returns with the final six episodes starting February 12.
  2. If you're someone who hasn't watched the six episodes of season one but would like to before the season two premiere (or you just want a refresher) and are a Netflix subscriber, season 1 is available on Netflix Watch Instantly.
Let's see how well this group of survivors fares this season...

I like how Rick and Shane are almost facing each other with Rick's family between them. Facing each other with guns.

We don't get it til next Friday so the wait is a bit longer! I enjoyed the web series though, loved the mouth to mouth bit in ep 3.

I really hope that the thing that Jenner whispered to Grimes isn't forgotten about with the change of staff.

While it's not a surprising statement (how many producers are going to call out their network even if the network's decisions are hurting their show?), writer and executive producer Robert Kirkman, who is also the creator of the original comics, says that there hasn't been a problem with the change in showrunners.
But "the transition from him to Glen Mazzara was seemless," he added, highlighting that he and both men had plotted out the second season together early this year. "It wasn't even really a hiccup."
He expects AMC to decide on a third season tomorrow after looking over tonight's premiere numbers.

Also, TV Line has an interview up with Sarah Wayne Callies (Lori Grimes).

Damn you, PsychoPere! I wanted to start this thread since I did it last year. Oh well. You did a way better first post then I would have done.

Looking forward to season two, even if I am disappointed that the showrunner got fired and the budget got cut. Stupid AMC!

The Walking Dead season one topic for those that want to reread it.

Sorry!

I wanted to make sure people who didn't follow the updates thread had time to learn about and watch the prequel webisodes, if they were so interested.

Which, amusingly enough, I still haven't done myself... though I don't plan on watching the premiere until tomorrow, so I still have time.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 2 Discussion *Spoilers*

I predict bigger ratings that the finale of S1. The word of mouth for this show, bafflingly, is huge.

Regardless of that, given the wild inconsistency of S1 I'm not that interested in this season and will give it a miss when it airs here in the UK later in the week. If reports come out of greater consistency over the season as a whole then I'll rent the inevitable BluRay release.

Enjoy the premiere guys!


Hugo - only enjoyed 1.75 episodes of season 1 (the pilot, half of episode 2 and a smidgen of episode 5)

They definitely need to get a few more guns I think. I'd want a pistol at all times and maybe a sawed-off shotgun. And Jamie Lee Curtis could use a better shirt.
