AICN is often wrong. I hope that's the case with both of those Spoilers.

I loved the fact that this episode was filled with honesty and characters being forthright. Which is so NOT how most shows have things. TV show characters usually have the worst communication skills. Glenn can't handle the secrets and spills it. Dale gets two pieces of information and immediately confronts Lori and Herschel, neither of whom deny a thing, and in fact, they are open to discussing the issues! Lori apologizes to Glenn. Rick confronts Lori upon finding the pills, gets the truth from her, and then spills it about Shane.

I love it!
Same here. This is what makes the show great.

The pacing this season has been pretty horrible. I realize last season was only 6 episodes so a lot was condensed, but the problem is it gave your a false sense of expectation on what to look forward to for S2... Where as when S2 got here everything is all stretched out so that not even half as much has happened in the 7 episodes of S2 that have aired then what happened in all of S1.
Well with the 6 final episodes in Feb, its a good guess the show will move on to a new location eventually setting up the 3rd season. However in season 3 I agree there needs to be better pacing overall and more zombies

The show puts Dexter's current season to shame, while not quite approaching Breaking Bad quality, although it is close. One of the best written shows (of the shows I watch) on television...

Agreed. That's how real people handle secrets. Most people I know cannot hold water let alone secrets these people have under the circumstances fictionalized.

And not only is the writing real the actors who deliver the lines do it well.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 2 Discussion *Spoilers*

Is anyone else at all concerned that the groups 'shooting lessons' must be burning through an awful lot of scarce ammo? I confess my memory is hazy about last season, but wasn't their last resupply that big duffle full of guns that Rick found early on?

Yeah, if they found more, it was off-screen. Not to say they couldn't have grabbed ammo off of any of the giant group of dead soldiers around the CDC, though. That should have set them up for life, as every one of them would have had machine/hand guns and ammo on them, although they might have to add some together to combine clips and whatnot.

Also could have found stuff in the traffic jam easily enough, they had forever to look...

Living here in the greater Atlanta area there must be a Wal*Mart store every 5 miles - even in rural communities. The production costs related to recreating that enviornment was probably not cost effective nor likely would Wal*Mart want to lend there name to a zombie flick [or maybe so? ] but it's surprising that type of store wasn't used as a re-supply location.

Any Wal*Mart store could have supplied the group with everything for life.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 2 Discussion *Spoilers*

^^ I agree, except that with the fleeing of the population from Atlanta and the greater metro area, I bet the Walmarts were the first things targeted for, at first stocking up and then later, looting...

Want to see heartless monsters attacking people (possibly resulting in death) in Wal-Mart & it being ravaged of all its merchandise? Just stop by Thursday at 10pm. No doubt we'll see video on YouTube soon...

I can imagine the poster with the slogan will be condensed from "Save Moey, Live Better" to "Save Lives"

One word: Boring

I couldn't bear this show after the first episode of season 2. I tried to watch the second episode. Zombies are boring, characters boring. After watching great shows like Games of Thrones this show is not doing it anymore for me. We know nobody of importance is going to die.

Maybe it miss Darabont touch.

See I don't understand this opinion. Doesn't mean you're not entitled to it but I still don't get it.

I really tried. I had many season 2 episodes lined up tonight to watch on my DVD. With the little kid just been shot from "last episode". But I just wouldn't care and found the dialogue tedious in a few seconds.

But I must say, while I find Zombie movie fun from time to time. I feel like they are boring unresponsive enemy. I don't feel their threat. So I'm not such a big Zombie fan even if I like horror movie very much.

I think it's worst without Darabont.

These episodes were pretty much written before Darabont was fired IIRC. I think they still represent his vision for the show if that is the case.
