There are still too many characters that very little has been done with, so we might as well toss out T-Dog, Beth, and Patricia (though she does play an incredibly naive and idiotic role in the comics during a future camp setting).
T-Dog's single "WHO'S THAT?!?!?!?!?" line in the lastest episode when they brought the new kid to the farm made me laugh. They are doing absolutely NOTHING with the character. T-Dog doing so little every episode has become a running joke.
I pray I don't get accused of racism with this post, but the early arcs of the comic had zero black characters, except the father and son for an issue. Even down to his name, T-Dog is feeling a bit token to me, and I'm wondering if he'll be killed off as soon as certain other characters are introduced later on.

I kept waiting for him to fill the Tyreese role somehow, but that's clearly not going to happen at this point (at least he'd be a pretty poor substitute for Tyreese).

They confirmed that Tyreese will be in the show anyway, when they were casting for whatshisface. The father. I've forgotten the character names, so I'm just going to refer to them as Michael and Walt until I remember.

That's good news. Hopefully Michonne isn't far behind. (The father's name was Morgan.)

Is Tyreese a comic character? I could wiki later but I'm at lunch and trying to conserve surfing.

Yes. He's introduced in the third arc of the book, in the location after the farm.

I don't know if this has been mentioned already but does anyone else think that the farm might be discovered by the new band of humans from the smoke coming off the pile of zombies they burned after the barn massacre?

Not now. It's been more than a day since that fire. Anyone who wanted to home in on it would have by now; plus, Dave and Tony didn't seem to know anything about it.

Good point, though.

Mid-S2 debuted internationally to huge ratings.

Following last week's global premieres of The Walking Dead on FOX International Channels' (FIC) networks around the world, the group today announces record-breaking ratings for the hit's return. An average of 16.9 million-viewers tuned in to watch the mid-season premiere outside of the US. The show was the highest rated program on pay television of the night in most of FIC's major markets; winning its time period among all Pay TV. The mid-season premiere of The Walking Dead debuted in 122 countries across Europe, Latin America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East, speaking 35 languages.

I get the feeling that T-Dog will be gone when/if Tyreese is introduced.
