Yep, Merle's a moron. Only he would choose to cut off his own hand instead of either cutting through the bolt the handcuff was attached to on the roof or cutting through the handcuff itself.
Maybe Jigsaw left that hacksaw?

I thought the wife was pretty high and mighty for someone who fucked Shane pretty enthusiastically 20 minutes after her husband died.

It would be the first wave that got so many people zombified. They wake up, chomp on unsuspecting nurses and loved ones and boom!! Millions infected in a day or so before anyone knows what's going on.
Not to mention that it probably took some time before people caught on that only brain damage kills zombies.

There seem to be a few characters on this show who only seem to care about themselves but don't have any concept of survival or doing what's best for the group. Makes you wonder what you'd do in such a situation if there were individuals who you knew would be the death of your group.

Re: AMC's The Walking Dead Season 1 Discussion & Spoilers

Another good one this week, though some might be dissapointed by the shortage of gore. The romantic triangle problem shook itself out a lot easier than I was expecting, with no obvious bad guy/girl. Just like real life.
I found it kind of interesting how everyone seems to have eased into an almost tribal existance so easily, with everyone having their roles. Though sometime soon I suspect theres going to be a power struggle to be dealt with.
And honestly, I can't see much good in having the wifebeater and the redneck brothers around.

As for Merle, I can probably see the guys point. You've got zombies halfway through the door, and I guess bone cuts a lot quicker than steel. But still... *shudder*

Re: AMC's The Walking Dead Season 1 Discussion & Spoilers

Whatshisface was an idiot for leaving the car alarm on all the way back to the camp and I was surprised that there wasn't more of an effort to turn it off, even if they had to smash something. Don't those things stop on their own after a while anyway?

Also, the show must have really made an impression on me because I had a dream last night where I was in a world overrun by zombies.

I had that same dream after last weeks episode!

Did anyone else have a Monty Python moment after the beheaded zombie's head was still trying attack? "I'll bite your legs off!"

Re: AMC's The Walking Dead Season 1 Discussion & Spoilers

I finally got around to watching this show last night and got caught up with the first three episodes. I loved it. I think that it is the best thing on television right now. I'm very tempted to order the comic books that it is based on but I don't want to know what happens next.

"Tell it to the Frogs" was another damn good episode. I think my favorite part of the episode was watching Merle's breakdown in the teaser.

No, but my first thought was similar to Daryl after the zombie's head was cut off: "Uh, guys, the brain..."

Im so dumb, when I saw what happned to the redneck at first I thought the zombies had completely eaten him & just left his cuffed hand behind. Later during the show I realized he had actually pulled an Aron Ralston.

With some alarms, the car itself shuts off if you don't deactivate them soon enough.

Re: AMC's The Walking Dead Season 1 Discussion & Spoilers

Another good episode, although that car alarm was driving me crazy. That's probably what drew the Zombie up the hill.

The wife was pretty harsh with the best friend, accusing him of lying about Rick being dead. Good thing he had the wife beater there to take out his aggression on. I've been thinking that the guy who plays best friend seemed very familiar, and I just realized he's a lot like Paul Michael Glaser.

It's good to see so many of the characters showing integrity in this Apocalyptic situation, even with rednecks and other throwbacks around. It would have been easy to leave such a scumbag to his doom. And that guy was pretty stupid to cut off his own hand when the Zombies couldn't even get through (and obviously gave up and left).

I don't know who he is, but he was on the short-lived Eastwick, that time as the slacker husband dragging his wife and kids down with him.

More people here probably saw him on The Pacific.
