Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

I'm assuming this thread is going to be full of spoilers but feel free to spoil away for me. I didn't read all the novels (in fact I've stop reading books that are made into movies or series knowing the book is probably better and saving them until after airing) but is Rick still going to be crazy this season? He has good reason but I liked the normal Rick better.

Um, Rick wasn't crazy for the last half of last season.

He was coming back from it the last half of the last season, I'm just hoping it's gone for good.

Same, Season 1/2 Rick was really cool and then he sort of went nuts. Even more Lori died. (Killing Shane seemed to snap him first, Lori sent him off the deep end.)

Look forward to the season, still need to pickup S3 on DVD.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

Watched the first couple episodes of season one last night with my son... Wow what a difference three seasons make...

I'm sure it's been talked about before, but I had forgotten that early on, the walkers seemed to still carry a slight sliver of sentience with them after they turned... When Morgan's wife tries the door knob (or even recognizes the house, for that matter), when the walker climbs a fence to get at Rick and Glenn; when Rick bails under the tank, walkers bend down on one knee to look for him rather than just dive right in... The recurring walker in episode one (IIRC, he's one of the comic writers, isn't he?) who is on the bus and uses his arms to pull himself up from his seat...

Now walkers are just cattle.. Mad for brains cattle...

And then of course, the transition time went from hours in season one to mere minutes in season three..

So My son and I discussed whether or not this was due to writing and direction, or if it's because the virus (or whatever it really is that's causing it) was new to our body's systems and we had the ability to fight it off a bit, early on before it took over completely..

We both agreed that the easy answer is writing/direction and plot convenience, but I guess a part of me deep down likes to believe that early on, our bodies tried to fight the change off..

Either way, I'm stoked for Season four.. Bring it!!

Regarding Rick, my speculation is that Judith aka "little ass kicker," is going to get killed and it's going to cause either Rick and/or Carl to lose it.

Also, I think Daryl will assume a greater leadership role within the group.

I also think Herschel is a gonner.

I fear they'll kill Carol, she's become quite popular, has been with the show since season one but she's not that important, she could be this years big death. I doubt they'll dare to kill off Daryl, he's way too popular.

I still hope someone sees what a psycho Carl is and executes him, whoever kills him will be my new favorite character for at least three weeks.

Carl means drama, and is a central character from the comic, so he's not going anywhere. Maybe he will become the leader at the end of this season.....

That he's a central character from the comic is irrelevant, Andrea is one too and that didn't save her ass last season.
When Jeffrey DeMunn wanted to leave they simply made Herschel the new Dale and Carol is already closer to comic-Andrea than show-Andrea ever was. They can find a better child actor and create a new Carl if they need one.

I really disliked Carl in S1 and S2, the character was a major spoiled punk and nothing special about the acting. But, in S3, I thought the actor really stepped it up, and the character was much better (Well, at the end he started becoming a bit of a psycho, but, I'm good with seeing where they go with that)

We'll see, I'm willing to give him another chance, but until he convinces me I'm still on the "Kill carl" train.

The difference between Carl and the other characters is that he's Rick's son--the main character, so his evolution becomes part of Rick's development/journey, and cannot be dismissed as easy as Dale, et al.

They can't really kill anyone of the main cast right now without hurting the show pretty badly except maybe Carol.

If they kill Daryl or Hershel I'm boycotting.

Get ready to boycott then. I think Herschel is a gonner by the mid-season break.

BTW here are the names of the first 4 Episodes and no real spoilers other than brief plot summary.

Episode 1 — 30 Days Without an Accident
“The group lives an ideal life at the prison, and strives to hold onto humanity.”
Episode 2 — Infected
“The group faces a new enemy; Rick and the others fight to protect their hard-won livelihood.”
Episode 3 — Isolation
“A group leaves the prison to search for supplies; the remaining members of the group deal with recent losses.”
Episode 4 — Indifference
“The supply mission faces hurdles; the situation at the prison worsens.”
