I took the "Tink" sound as the gun hitting the ground as it sounded (on my ba@ss surround sound system) heavier than a shell.
Hmm. It definitely didn't sound heavy or solid enough to put me in mind of a six-inch .357 hitting the floor. I will have to listen again to the on-demand ep.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

^ I was actually more surprised none of the guys waiting outside the room flinched when the shot rang out, since no one knew precisely when it would happen. Maybe they've become so desensitized to the sound of gunfire, the sound just doesn't register anymore on that kind of level.

I was really looking forward to seeing the Governor brutally killed.

Next season perhaps.

There really is no need for further discussion. Saying "gay" in that context is not exactly complimentary. If you would like to keep playing, please cease from using the word "gay" in this manner.

Comments to PM.
And that goes for everyone else as well, there is no need to prolong the matter.
LOL, I just found out you gave me an infraction like, one month ago.

The reason you quote: Questioning someone's intelligence like that is a clear-cut flame. I also see you CHOSE to ignore your friend Kestrel just 10 posts above me telling me "I'm laughing at the superior intellect." which is questioning my intelligence and is a clear-cut flame. But I guess because he's your friend and/or it's a Star Trek quote, it's okay for him to do it to me.

What I don't see in the FAQ or anywhere is an explanation about what that "point" in my PM is suppose to mean. And since I don't come here too often, I guess it doesn't mean anything. You could try to explain it to me, but I probably wouldn't see it until July.
Infraction for ignoring the standard instruction of "Comments to PM".

Comments to PM.

OK. Well, they also most have manicurists in Woodbury and left over toe nail paint because Andrea's feet were very well 'kept,' for living so long in the woods.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

My impressions:

Carl: While his logic is a bit chilling, it has merits. The boy was NOT putting down his gun, but apparently handing it over. Had Carl reached for it, the boy could've either thrust it forward or pulled it (and Carl) back, making Carl lose his balance and aim.

Andrea: She was being naive, but maybe that was good for her, "fight the good fight" and all. After all, she had been a civil rights attorney. But in the world of TWD, she was naive and wrong.

Daryl/Merle: Here I was afraid that he'd shut himself off, but he recognized that Merle had indeed killed all those Woodbury men (because who'd've thought the Governor would kill them) and so redeemed himself. Merle became the man Daryl had hoped, but it cost Merle his life. That's why I think Daryl destroyed Walker Merle so hard--to destroy to monster that Redeemed-Merle had become. And Daryl realized that he could not go it alone.

Rick: He should recognize the validity of Carl's logic, but teach him to temper it. We don't have to see the conversation, but a reference to it--mention the hiker, Michonne, the refugees, etc.

Glen/Maggie: Great team! They didn't do too much here, but they're great together.

Herschel: I think he misread the confusion Carl was in.

Carol/Beth: They BOTH killed walkers! Go Beth! Nice to see that she can step up when needed.

Michonne: Fantastic character and actress.

Tyreese: Please let a brother live on this show! I'm just afraid his character will overlap Herschel's too much.

Tyreese's sister: What is her name? I like how she's practical and willing to stand her ground.

Refugees: So few? That's it? Less than a dozen? There were 72 people there, I thought more were non-fighters than that. I guess the Governor had pulled EVERYONE with him. And, yes, I would've stripped Woodbury of all resources, or secured them.

Woodbury Army: Oh, man! What a massacre! Literally! I thought there were a lot more going into the prison. And still the numbers don't add up. 72 people. Five (I had thought six) dead in Rick's raid; another 8 by Merle; plus Tyreese and his sister, leaving 61. Maybe a dozen refugees at most, and the Governor, Martinez, and the other guy, leaving 46. But the Governor didn't kill 46. I'm a bit confused on the count. Oh, glad Allan (Ben's father) bit it; he should have fired.

Martinez/Other guy: Why they didn't kill the Governor on the spot, I assume was due to shock. Now they've tied themselves to a crazy man. Guilt alone will compel them to follow him.

Governor: He is crazy! He bit off Merle's fingers--though he didn't eat them, he has become a living walker. I think he's going to take potshots at the prison next season.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Anyone else think that Mazzara was fired/left as showrunner because he wanted to end the governor/prison arc at the end of this season and the producers didn't? It sure seemed like things were set up to the point where the storyline should have concluded and now we have another season of him/it.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

I do wonder what I'd think if I hadn't read the comics, as I really can't help but compare it when I watch it.
But as it, colour me majorly unimpressed with Season 3.5

That'd be a good bet. Continuing the Governor arc is a mistake considering that the character is barely a character; he's always been a messily written villain and I really don't think we need him sticking around any longer.

Yeah the Governor stuff is semi entertaining but (IMO) is getting stale, I hope they end it early in Season 4 and move on to something else.

Other than the backstory about his daughter Penny, he has about as much depth as your run of a mill Trek or Wars villian.

I agree it was getting stale, but having him die in the finale would have been way too predictable and expected, I think.

No matter how much it might piss people off, I'm kinda glad the writers decided to hold off on that a bit (as long as they don't keep him around through all of Season 4, which I agree would be too much).

They should've killed him earlier this season and move on to a more interesting plot.
