Probably not, but I'm sure he'll give'em a hand.

Talking Dead does well in the ratings too. Not sure how many of us here watch that show though.

I watched it the other night because of Nathan Fillion, not sure if I'll tune in every week or not.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

I like Chris Hardwick and I enjoy hearing discussions about the show. It also helps the watercooler talk on Monday to drop in bits they say on The Talking Dead, especially when the show runners are on it.

Anyway, like usual, Honest Trailers hits the nail on the head with their trailer for The walking Dead:

Same here. Nathan was looking pretty fit. He'd gotten some chubby cheeks in the last season of Castle I am on.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

Okay.

I guess that Rick has come back from his insanity and relinquished control of the group (or voted out, who knows) and he is beginning to be comfortable being Ol Farmer Grimes. He got his ipod playin ole timey farmer music and digs up a relic from his past. The sounds of the undead are (really) loud but he un clips the gun and pitches them in the wheelbarrow and continues on his merry hoeing.

Then, while out checking animal traps, comes upon a dirty woman clad in black who begs him for help; she and her husband have not eaten in days. He offers her some sort of sandwich wrapped up in aluminum foil and they proceed to her camp. On arriving, she attempts to kill him and it turns out she wanted to feed Rick to her husband's head and then kills herself but answering his Three Questions.

I think I'm the only one who thinks Creepy Clara was not real.

Clara answered Rick's "why?" question with words to the effect that you don't come back from what you've done. Clara never killed a Walker because she let her husband - her leader do that - or, perhaps, because she really isn't there. The only person she says she killed is herself which she obviously did but what does she then have to come back from?
When Rick gets to the camp we see an amazingly immaculate tent which is a far cry from what any camping tent would look like after so much time out in the world of the Walking Dead and juxtaposed against the grime all over Clara's hands and face doesn't make any sense at all. In addition, Rick doesn't salvage anything from Clara's camp? Was he thinking he'd come back later or something, you know, after she turned? They stopped and grabbed up the backpack that belonged to Yelly McYellerson last season, why not her stuff too? Also, on the way to Clara's I noticed that she never even so much as opened up the foil package which, even if she were saving it for her husband, seems odd for a woman starving out in the wilderness.
I also think it was symbolic that Rick would wear the earbuds listening to music and keeping out the sounds of the dead but hears them again when he unearths the gun but continues to throw away his old life and tries to become someone he isn't; someone buried beneath the farmer's dirt. Perhaps my TV had bad contrast or brightness settings or maybe there wouldn't be anything to see at the angle it was filmed but it seemed to me when Rick scooped up water from the rain barrel there was no reflection of him in the water; as if to suggest that Farmer Grimes wasn't really there or he has so suppressed his zombiekillerness that he won't even or can't even see himself anymore.

I don't know. I don't have Tivo or Netflix to see if I missed anything. I'll have to wait for the rebroadcast so if anyone can set me straight on this, I'd appreciate it.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

I think they intended for Creepy Clara to be real, but that's certainly an interesting interpretation of the events.

It's all a fever dream. Rick never left the hospital from his gunshot wound.
