This show desperately needs better writing. The dialogue is often questionable and the cliches are abundant. It has such great atmosphere and it delivers the chills well but when it comes to characterization it's simply not up to the task at all. I want this to be a better show than it is but I'm thinking it's not going to get there.

Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy watching it but I feel like it could, and should, be so much better.
I definitely kind of agree. I know the book is always going to be better than the adaption, but the characters were the most interesting part of the comic. That's not the case here. The characters are actually very weak, especially Rick where is only quality is being the leader. Andrea is another one who was hurt a lot in the show. She was such a great character and now she's so boring.

I'm rooting for Dale and Andrea to get together. She's already mentally tried it on for size, when she threw it in his face that she's not his wife.
Normally the older man with the younger woman thing would annoy me but Andrea and Dale are played by the two best actors on the show so the more of them together the better.

I understand that, I was sympathizing with Temis, that the quick shot they showed, it did indeed look like a hand and part of a forearm. That's why I want tos ee it again in slow motion/pause, so I can see it better, and understand why a squirrel looked like that.
I just chalked it up to my depraved imagination. Can't recall ever seeing a human snack on a zombie in a zombie story, so that would have been a first.
Wouldn't that turn you into a zombie?
Eh, if they were determined, they could finesse it. The human digestive system is adapted to handle all sorts of crap, but getting bitten and having a virus injected directly in your bloodstream is a whole other thing.

I just saw the Mist again on blu-ray and realized that they were both in it.

Daryl, upon being shot in the head: "I was just kidding."

This was another great episode. Daryl's big adventure, including hallucinations, were very revealing (and it seems he hallucinates pretty easily-- too many shrooms in the past?). We're getting closer to finding Sophia, it seems. And poor Glenn-- reduced to sitting at the kids' table and passing notes.

The Zombie barn is creepy. You know they're going to be getting out soon. How did they get them in there in the first place?

How did they get them in there in the first place?
There are at least three young folks at the farm, who look healthy and fast on their feet. You could use them as bait, and then they just scramble to safety up the ladder into the hayloft. Zombies don't understand ladders.

Speaking of that, is Maggie Herschel's daughter? There was another girl that we haven't seen much of - is she another daughter? The boy isn't Herschel's "kin" - is he a neighbor, boyfriend of the other girl or what?
And poor Glenn-- reduced to sitting at the kids' table and passing notes.
Yeah, I thought, yeesh, insulting. Did his heroic performance during the Timmy fiasco, when everyone else was being dolts, count for nothing??? But maybe he wanted to be near Maggie.

I'd sit there every time if it was with Maggie!

Let's not jump to conclusions. It could be a zombie who decided to write in.


Edit: Awww, removed. But I swear, the syntax was almost exactly what you'd expect from a poster who was a zombie. All it needed was a reference to BRAAAINS.

Is that what they were eating? Survival comes at a high price during the Zombie Apocalypse.

Awesome episode this week! The best episode of the season so far. Mostly because of Daryl, who has become the fan favorite even though he was never in the comics. The actor is also doing a great job with the character, showing off Daryl's badass side and his vulnerable side

Daryl is the man! The guy gets thrown off a horse, falls down a steep hillside, gets arrow stuck on his side, kills two zombies and makes it back up the hill after two attempts! He does this while his ghost brother gives him a verbal smackdown. The actors had really great chemistry. In the end Darly even survived getting a bullet through the side of his head, no thanks to Andrea.

Andrea you idiot! Could she have been any dumber?! She just proved to everyone why she shouldn't have a gun in the first place.

The rest was good too. Glenn is finally getting something to do. I'm glad Carol has finally stopped crying all the time and thought of the dinner idea to increase morale. She was really sweet with Daryl, who probably has never been treated so nicely in his life.

I can't believe how much I hate Maggie right now. She treated Glenn like trash.

I'm SICK to death of the Sophia storyline. This needed to end like three weeks ago.

We got the cool cliffhanger at the end with the walkers in the barn. I predict a huge bloodbath coming in the fall finale! I hope the walkers eat most of the annoying people.
