Don't think hat was a problem for them...it allowed each of the actors to get some much deeper screen time. Last week's in particular...

I think they learned from T-Dog...who barely got any screen time when he was on (in fact, it was a running joke among fans). This season's split would have allowed him to shine.

I'd put Crosby in the same boat as the rest of the cast.
Meh, not so sure about that. Crosby in addition to Trek had a major role in the film, Deep Impact and of course also had a major role in the cult classic Pet Cemetery. To the best of my knowledge none of the other actors even comes close to having her film and tv appearances.

BTW she is also doing fairly well financially. So obviously going on TWD wasn't just for the money.
I would say other WD additions like David Morrissey, Michael Rooker, Scott Wilson, Jeffrey DeMunn, and even Chad L. Coleman have a better track records than Crosby

So, Maggie collapsed the concrete ceiling of the train tunnel by firing a few 9mm bullets at it?
So here's my question about this...Maggie, Bob and Sasha were passing thru the tunnel, going the same direction that Glen and Tara were. They met the swarm and escaped by shooting out the ceiling and causing the cave in. So if that's case, why was the swarm on the exit side of the tunnel? How does that make sense? If it allowed them to escape shouldn't they have trapped the swarm on the entrance side? And WHY would Maggie's group have entered the tunnel in the first place? They weren't chasing anyone in particular. What's an extra day of going around compared to a trek of unknown length through a pitch black tunnel filled with who knows how many walkers. Really the entire plot made no sense to me at all.
Easy, the walkers going after Maggie an company came from behind. She collapsed the cave to stop the leading zombies, the zombies in the rear climbed over too late to grab them, lingered, and was there when Glen showed up.

Would you complain about getting paid the same and having several weeks off a time like Andrew Lincoln had?

I'd think that AMC will pour a lot of money now into what will be their only winning franchise - with two shows to air in 2015.

As an aside, anyone notice the volume of advertising to get people to watch another TV network on last night's show? NBC, TNT, and others ran advertising to turn off AMC and turn on another channel. This is the fist time I remember one network permitting another to run advertising about another show on a competing network.

In my case it worked - I turned off the Talking Dead and tuned into NBC's Crisis at 10 p.m.

Crisis seems overproduced and too pretty.

But I will continue watching if only for Gillian Anderson...

Yea. It's reminiscent of Revolution in many respects - notably the pretty faced young people.

NBC - for the network that once got drama and comedy so right - they cannot seem to find their sea legs any more.

Without getting too off-topic, I think Hannibal is the (unfortunately poorly rated) exception...

Still doesn't add up for me. If they came from behind, how did Maggie's group get past them in the first place? And none of that begins to answer why they would even enter the tunnel in the first place.

Perhaps the zombies were following them before they got to the tunnel and/or while Maggie was writing on the tunnel wall.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

I have a question. Why does everyone assume that Beth was taken by someone in the car? My first impression after watching that episode was that she escaped in the car on her own. Did I miss something that shows otherwise (a likely possibility)?

Well, there was that she left her bag. But the bigger thing is the entire half-season of character development and relationship building between her and Daryl that implied that there is ZERO chance she would willingly speed away, by herself or with someone else, and leave Daryl behind.

BTW she is also doing fairly well financially. So obviously going on TWD wasn't just for the money.

It's been a rough year for the actress, but at least she has her millions of dollars to ease the pain. 56-year-old Denise Crosby has taken the No. 1 spot on People With Money’s top 10 highest-paid actresses for 2014 with an estimated $58 million in combined earnings.
UPDATE 24/03/2014
Denise Crosby tops annual list of highest-paid actresses
In 2011 it looked like the actress’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Sunday (March 23) that Crosby is the highest-paid actress in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between February 2013 and February 2014, a nearly $30 million lead over her closest competition.
People With Money’s factors
In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.
The American actress has an estimated net worth of $185 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Crosby Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Hollywood Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondercrosby - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Denise) and a fashion line called “Denise Crosby
As as contrast, here is Forbes' list of the top 10 highest-paid actresses in Hollywood. They list Kristen Stewart as number one and somehow neglected to mention Denise Crosby.

I don't think she would have left Daryl, especially in light of the fact that they have developed a new closeness. Also her bag was on the ground.
