Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Pretty good episode, but yeah, like a lot of people here I'm kinda itching for the battle to begin already.

And seriously, how do you not notice zombies walking up on you in a forest?? Unless it's incredibly dense with trees and foliage (which the one in this episode clearly wasn't), you should be able to see them coming a mile away.

Not to mention all the sticks and branches you'd hear them stepping on along the way. Those places are so quiet you can hear every little sound that's made.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

why do people expect so much reality in a show about zombies?

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Well, it took almost the whole season, but at least Andrea has finally come to her senses.
Is it bad that I was kind of hoping she would die?
Overall, I enjoyed the episode. I liked the stuff with Tyrese and his sister, and the Andrea/Governor stuff was pretty good too.
That last scene definitely gave me the impression that Milton torched the Walkers.

Oh it's not a dealbreaker or anything. But even in a fantasy or horror show like this, there are moments sometimes that strain credibility a little too much.

Especially when that show tries so hard to pretend that this is the real world it's taking place in.

I don't think it's about reality, it's that zombies always seem to pop up from just off camera. How can the character not see them, just because the audience can't?

Though the latest zombies appearing TWD look like they would be well camouflaged in a forest, being various shades of brown and gray now.

Yeah, I suppose that's possible too, certainly more preferable

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

No way am I touching those spoilers, although I'm VERY tempted.

In my opinion that episode did a lot to redeem Andrea. I loved the scene when she let out the zombies on the Governor, and then to get yanked back when she was so close to the prison...

Tyreese is badass, glad he's part of the show.

I think it was pretty clear that Milton was the one who torched the zombies (which looked very cool by the way) and it's nice to see him taking some action.

They're really loving the songs at the end of the episode recently! Can't believe there's only two episodes left. It doesn't seem enough.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

I, too, think Milton torched the walkers, but why? It didn't destroy them, and arguably makes them a little scarier looking. Apparently they couldn't move anymore, so I guess it was effective as far as preventing the Governor from using them in an assault, but why burn them? I guess it had to be Milton; anyone else would've just shot the walkers. Only Milton would want to destroy them from a safe place.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Probably more as a statement than anything, and it was his first act of rebellion, let's cut the guy a bit of slack

I just read a review on IGN and they made a good point. Andrea kept talking about the good people of Woodbury, but she didn't actually warn any of them about the Governor (granted, if she had done they probably wouldn't have believed her), but it points to a general lack of development of the Woodbury population.

Yeah, Milton burned up the Zombies and the Governor knows it. He's screwed. Andrea's not in a good place right now, either. As stupid as she's been, I hope she isn't tortured or killed.

Tyrese is cool. I hope he and his wife become part of the main group. I loved the scene where he was practicing shooting at the walkers.

And what the hell does it take to kill the Governor? If I unleashed a horde of Zombies on someone, I would expect him to DIE.

he probably never set a bunch of zombies on fire before so he didn't know they weren't going to die. I certainly expected them to be dead.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Even Milton knows the brain has to be destroyed to "kill" walkers. Though you would think the fire would be enough to thoroughly cook the brain, thus destroying it.

A little. He's part John Ritter, part Richard Thomas. I loved him on Rubicon---but apparently, I was the only one in America who watched that show.
I watched it too! It was so good, but so few people watched it. Such a disappointment.

I seem to recall somewhere that Kirkman said if the burned hot and long enough to destroy the brain that fire would work. But I could be wrong.

In any event, Milton (or whomever) was probably trying to incapacitate the maximum number of walkers in the shortest amount of time. After all, it isn't like he could just go in and start firing off head shots without alerting people and he's hardly a Michonne or even Andrea when it comes to being stabbing them in the head.
