I agree that Lori is annoying.

I don't get why she would try to drive into town and get Rick, Glenn and Hershel. Rick and Glenn are the ones with experience going into town, what is she going to do?

But then it came to me. She wasn't going to the bar. She's going to that medical place to check if Otis's body has a bullet in it. She's going to confirm Dale's theory! (this is just my speculation)

ooh that's interesting...
The "medical place" was overrun with zombies and everyone knew that because Herschel, Otis and even Shane had reported on that fact. Further, IIRC, the situation at the field hospital site was explained to Lori during discussions about going there to get supplies for Carl in the first place. Her going there to play "CSI:Zombieland" would have been even stupider on her part that what she DID do.

Indeed. And even if she did, he was torn to shreds (oddly, sometimes the zombies shred you, sometimes they just bite you and you turn. Usually the shredding is anything ON camera, and anyone that's turned happened off camera, or just got a nibble). Even if she found the body, would there be enough left to determine whether Shane shot him or not? And even THEN, it only hurts Shane if he's too stupid to tell them something like "After Otis got bitten, some of that crowd started back towards me, so I fired into the crowd a couple times. Maybe I hit his body in the crowd?"

I agree. Otis was eaten like bicycle girl (thanks, Shane, you're such a noble sweetie pie). There's really no way to determine if or how he got shot. Lori went after Rick because she's impulsive and selfish. I used to defend her. I really did, but.....the girl is dumb. I have to wonder if they're writing her this way intentionally for some purpose.

You don't like scripted reality t.v. intermixed with podcast chatter?

The doll lady has apparently appeared on other shows.

They probably don't get that many "interesting" people trying to sell them stuff in a month.

Temis, I love you, Gay marry me, and we'll find you a Straight geek guy to Straight marry.
In honor of Valentines Day, I accept! Because what's more romantic than a gay (or polyamorous?) marriage proposal in a zombie thread. TrekBBS, you're the best.

The Walking Dead is back!

Awesome episode. Rick was such a badass at the saloon. They really got a great actor to play Hershel. I'm hoping that the guys that Rick shoot down were from a larger group and that they will be back to cause problems later in the season. I've always considered human enemies during a ZA to be far more dangerous than the zombies themselves.

Lori is an idiot and has to be one of the dumbest and most hated characters on television right now! She went to look for her husband (A COP) who only left an hour ago, took off without telling anyone, read a map while driving, and actually SPED up after hitting the walker which caused her car to flip. The posters over at TWOP are tearing her apart. Some were cheering when the car flipped.

That scene made me laugh. You'd think after the zombie apocalypse, you'd be able to take your eyes off the road for two seconds, but nooo...

Yeah, worst timing ever.

Still, it was another great episode, if not the best. The aftermath of Sophia's death was very depressing. And Shane keeps going farther off the rails. I love Dale, though. He's probably my favorite character.

But if I were going to be handling dead zombies, I think I would wear gloves.

I'd have just doused them with gasoline and burned them right there. I'm not touching those nasty things!

Re: The Walking Dead Season 2 Discussion *Spoilers*

A good episode, but the actions of Lori don't make much dramatic sense to me. If I had just seen what happened to Sophia, and I had a child, I would never take off, on my own, without him. I wouldn't take my eyes for the kid for one second. To just jump up and get in a car, by yourself, was beyond stupid. It felt like it was a "because it's in the script" moment.

I LOVED the scene in the bar; so much was hinted at, without being thrown in your face. Rick did what needed to be done and was a true leader; I think this shows how Rick will be in the future and that he's coming to grips with the reality of the situation, much like Hershel is.

If by "later in the season" you mean next week, you're in luck.

Nice.

Was that in the preview? I couldn't be bothered to watch the show that was on next to see it.
