    GarfieldLeChat fucking awesome but wrong

    it's presumed. In the comics there's no CDC moment or big reveal this is all they know bitten or not dead get head shot. You die you become a zombie. So it's either a 'miraclious' event which turned everyone at once or it's air borne

    wow, just watched the last ep. Plenty of WTF to think about. Roll on series 3.

    was a good episode...

    Michonne yay finally.... and with her boyfriends... yay....

    and the prison in series 3 which means it'll be along slow one with a horrific cliff hanger at the end of series 3 gonna be awesome even if it's only half of the comic books...

    Hassan I Sabha Kick Muck !

    Is there a non torrent source for the comics at all? If not what is the cheapest way of buying them, there seems to be various combinations of compendiums and the like.

    yes you can get them directly from image http://www.imagecomics.com/series/349/ or via the secret stash http://www.redbankstash.com/

    full listings, tbh the compendiums are usually 12 comics in 1 (much like the series episodes you might note... hmmm) but are probably better value than the individuals...


    there are a lot of compendiums cos there's current 97 comics...

    it is a linear story so worth reading in sequence...

    I think we can all agree that this series is becoming something much better than it was in series 1

    now if thye'd just follow more of the ocmic plot lines... and of course hadn't killed dale... who's andrea going to fuck now... (tho andrea in the comics is much younger and would in effect make dale a peado which is never questioned or mentioned that he was sleeping with both sisters and had influence over them... hence the unspoken friction between them in the tv series which then was never expanded on before they killed him).

    Whoa there I wouldn't go that far! It's getting to be about as good but 7/8 episodes to get there is FAR too long!

    totally understand why they did it from a upcoming plot (assuming they still loosely follow the comics which the prison suggests they will) though I would have prefer to see them settle into the winter in the retirement village so they could find out why there were fewer zombies and what happens in winter etc also it would have made more sense from the randel issue they raised...

    thank fuck karl shot shane though that was a long time coming...

    It kinda feels like they've spent this series nudging it back to the plot of the comics to make up for the barbaric butchery which was series 1...

    Great last episode. Series 2 was a real improvement over series one, which went down the drain after episode two. Still not top notch telly, but pretty good by now. I'm plenty intrigued by who saved Andrea.

    Kid_Eternity "You might be a lord but here comes the king."

    Number 13 was a great episode, very happy the last few episodes have returned to the greatness of series 1, the sense of threat and futility has returned very nicely, plus it feels like anyone can die again rather than the treading water plotting of that fucking farm!

    thriller Last of the world's good men

    what's with all the daft love for episode 13? :confused:
    It was just more shooting at zombies and running.
    Dont get the praise it's getting?

    Anyone also notice how many bullets were fired by Herschel without even re-loading. :D

    What's wrong with shooting zombies and running ? That's why I watch the bloody show. :confused:

    Um did you not read my post? It's back to what made S1 great always being on the run, people not surviving, the struggle against futility...

    thriller Last of the world's good men

    all the running and shooting got boring after a while. and I wanted that annoying Korean kid dead (and Carl too).

    Reno The In Kraut

    If you find the rare episode of a zombie show which actually features the rarely seen zombies in action boring and you wish its most likeable character dead, then it may be time to watch something else. :hmm:

    likeable to you, maybe.
    And carl, likeable?
    little shit always wonders off and causes more trouble then he is worth.

    I like the Korean dude, the main characters son is just annoying, the sooner he's ripped to shreds by hungry walkers the better!

    I like Glenn and I liked how his relationship with Maggie was handled. Not that bothered by or about Carl, but they can't kill off both the children in one season.

    bi0boy .

    If Andrea's forthcoming baby is stillborn, will it turn into a zombie straight away?

    You mean Lori ? I suppose it would be if she passes on the infection.

    BTW, I loved the armless "pet" walkers the hooded figure who saved Andrea had chained up. Probably the creepiest image in the entire series.

    yeah, the ninja figure with the chained zombies was cool.

    Heh yeah I thought that too. About time we saw some other people too...would really like to see that father and son from the first episode again.

    Rajjie ready to be liberated?

    The British armed forces need to be kitted out with Hershel's shotgun.

    BLAM! BLAM! BLAM!

    50 shots. No reloading. BLAM!


    Also, who knew a side-effect of the virus was that everybody becomes sniper marksmen. The way Glenn was popping headshots out of a moving car. Fucking A.

    Are we supposed to hate Rick's wife and want her to die horribly for being such a stupid cow?
    Or not?
     
  27. Reno

    Reno The In Kraut

    That's one I never quite understand. Is it the difference between how we judge fictional characters and real people ? I think real people wouldn't always do the most clever things in situations of extreme stress and mortal danger, they would do desperate things, so I don't understand why audiences always want fictional characters to be heroic, noble, smartass or badass in those situations. What is it people hate so much about her ?

    It's their boy we should worry about. He's got the markings of that proper wrong 'un, that boy does.

    Most recently, the fact that Rick told her that psycho brick head (can't remember his name) was about to kill him, so he killed him in self defence, and apparently that deserves a massive strop and treating him like he's done something horrifically wrong.

    What was he supposed to do differently? Let himself be killed? (By a man who by the way is a) nuts and b)trying to steal his wife and kid.)

    She's barmy.

    Reno The In Kraut

    I think a little strop is understandable when your husband kills your boyfriend.

    She also doesn't quite trust his story and Rick is generally loosing his grip on the group.
