It's great for those who can appreciate it, but, someone, for example who loves the show (but has to watch it late at night), and wants the DVD set, but, has young children they wouldn't want to expose to that Box, it might make them decide not to get the DVDs, if there isn't a "typical" packaging available.
Yeah, I wouldn't get it for that reason. That packaging looks like is was designed specifically for dorm rooms.

I believe in the comic, the explanation for a herd is that they are directionless until something gets their attention, then they'll head towards that sound or smell until something new catches their attention.

What a shocker. The season finale ought to be very interesting.

I have to ask, is anyone else sexually aroused by the walkers? There's something about them that gives me a fear boner.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 2 Discussion *Spoilers*

I must say it's a great credit to the show that I wasn't sure at the end there if Shane or Rick were going to die, or neither, or both.

I'm glad Shane is gone. I thought they were starting to rehabilitate him but clearly not, and I couldn't take any more of his insanity.

I do wish there was more acknowledgement that they were friends and partners in that last scene, instead of just one man killing another man.

That was strange. If it were just gunshots, why didn't the first one get their attention ? Maybe it did, but they seemed to be aimless before the second shot at undead Shane. Also, Shane "came back" as a walker fast...much shorter time than it took Andrea's sister.

We see again at the beginning, the walkers will stop eating to attack humans. It seems to go beyond hunger and into attacking whatever is alive.

Did Shane get infected from bashing himself against the tree? ARE TREES THE BLAME. Is this The Happening 2?

It seems like they could still deal with that herd...unless its bigger next week. Just gotta knock some of the walker down, then finish them. They really need some sort of zombie crushing machine.

Is tonight's episode confirmation of what Rick WASN'T TOLD as the final words in the CDC bunker by the scientist guy? If he was told everyone is already infected and when they die they come back as a zombie shouldn't he have known Shane was going to come back to life?
I think he was distracted by Carl, and didn't want Carl to see his surrogate father's body; he was too emotional to think fast enough in the moment.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 2 Discussion *Spoilers*

They should call the series: The Watching Dead. This series is as redundant and boring as they come. A soap opera with Zombies. Hard not to be put into comatose state when you watch that boring series.

Lame-o.

I thought it was a great episode too. I mean wow. Lots of developments. With regard to Shane, I think Lori's little, "thank you," speech pushed him over the edge and gave him a false sense of hope about a relationship with her. She really has been the focal point in terms of creating trouble in the group.

Did they mean to imply the zombie virus is airborne now? If not they sure did send that message.

Question: does everyone who dies become a zombie in this new world, because Shane turned into one without being bit?

How did Randall become infected?

I took it that everyone is infected and when you die you come back as a zombie. It explains why the guards were zombies but did not have bites. Randall re-animated after Shane broke his neck. Shane came back once Rick killed him.

I am glad that Dale's death finally drove those people to move into the house. The house provides protection and pulls them all together in a somewhat definsible location.

At least in this ep they used the buddy system and did not go off into the woods alone. I was beginning to think they were the dumbest bunch on God's planet.

Saw this on another board and it made me giggle.

I think shane was goading rick into killing him. His whole basis of continuing on with Lori was that she wouldn't admit she had feelings for him. Then she did and it didn't matter, she was still going to be with rick. That and he realized he wasn't going to get away with killing randall.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 2 Discussion *Spoilers*

- First Dale and now Shane. No one is safe, except Rick. Two of the big characters are gone. I wonder how that'll affect the show.

- I wish we got to see more of Shane as a zombie.

- I was wondering why Dale wasn't a walker, but remembered that he was shot in the head.

- Funny how Carl was able to follow the gang through the woods at night and not get caught.

- Having zombies sneak up on people without being heard isn't totally believable.

That's what Lauren Cohan suggested on Talking Dead.

Randall's final dialogue with Shane seems to indicate that Randall was a willing participant in his "wild bunch" harsh activities. Randall was a threat.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 2 Discussion *Spoilers*

I don't get where that whole army of walkers came from. My understanding of the farm was that it's completely encircled by a fence, far enough from the house and other places that walkers wouldn't be attracted by sight or sound. (This was the fence we actually saw them checking this very episode.) Yes, gunshots and the like would be enough to attract them, but the group doesn't fire guns that often. If a walker happened to come upon the fence, or was attracted by gunfire, he'd shamble around it for a while and eventually leave. The watcher on the RV was just in case one of them happened to get through the fence.

Now we see there's a whole army of walkers ready to converge on the place?? Yes, they were attracted by the shots, but they were already right there and practically within sight of the house! Is the place not as secure as I thought?

And Shane sure reanimated fast compared to Amy.
