Re: The Walking Dead

It is a really good show, although I do think Season 1 was the best batch of episodes so far. The first half of Season 2 was the low point, but it did start to improve once you get to the second half of Season 2. Season 3 was good, but still not quite up to the quality of Season 1.

Re: The Walking Dead

A lot of people complain about the slow pace of the first half of Season 2, my wife included, but I didn't mind it all. All their desperate searching for Sofia really made the impact of seeing her as a walker that much greater.

Thanks for starting this thread. I could never figure out why they never had a thread about the show before.
Sorry, thought it was better than bumping months/years old threads with hundreds of posts in them. I apologize if I wasted your time by making you click on a thread and read it.

We have one every season
Yes, exactly my point.
HUH??? How does "I can't figure why no one ever started a thread about the show" translate into your point being that we have a thread for it every season?

Ah OK, I thought "Thanks..." indicated sincerity, and the eye roll was directed at nobody having created one before now.

That's a really good point about Season 2-Part A. But Season 2- Part B was really slow.

The slowness of the first half of season 2 is nothing compared to the awfulness of the second half of season 3. The last half of season 3 felt like the writers had stopped caring.

Re: The Walking Dead

The thing with Sophia is that I *knew* she had turned and she was going to show up at some point, especially once we found out what was in the barn. She had to have been turned once a day passed on the show because if she hadn't then the zombies were no longer a credible threat if an 8-year-old girl managed to avoid them and not get bit after DAYS. Weeks, likely, given the recovery of Rick's kid and him changing to a little shit that needs a good smack across the head.

It seemed to me after a while every episode was this:

Rick: "We need to find Sophia!"
Shane: "We need to get movin'!"
Hershel: "You need to get off my land!"

No hey problema. And it's not exactly like I'm outraged at the OP not searching for the original thread[s]. It was more like gentle teasing.

In my opinion the eye roll emoticon does not make it seem like gentle teasing. It just looks like you're coming into this thread for the sole purpose of dumping on the OP.

^Pretty much. The eye roll has got to be the most irritating emoticon on the BBS.

That's a perfect description of the first half of season 2!

Re: The Walking Dead

I just wish Season 3 was available, but it's not OnDemand or on Netflix or anything so I have to wait on it. Even though the series is available on NetFlix I might look into buying the DVD sets. Because it is an enjoyable show.
