re: The Walking Dead thread (spoiler alert, read at your own risk)

So let me guess SolidSnake, reading your comments you've read, "How to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse"?

If not, DEFINITELY get it. I think it's additional reading before reading World War Z. The person thought a TON about this and a lot of it makes perfect sense and weirdly the logic is kind of air tight.

I think part of the reason Sophia was killed off was because of her growth spurt. She's a good 3 or 4 inches taller then she was last season and the only two options going forward were to have her go missing long term or turn her into a walker.

Carl is next :FIREdevil

Still I've heard a lot of people say that this was drug out to long but I personally liked it. I guess I'm used to it having watched anime in the past which is famous for dragging things out and TV dramas in general, but I personally enjoy it. Movies to me build up things way to fast and end up being anti-climactic. Still I think the best approach generally speaking is to wait for episodes to pass by and then watch them all at once. No having to wait a week for the next episode.

I gotta' say, Carl annoys the ever-loving shit out of me. The name just sounds ridiculous to begin with and the stuff he says just like blows my mind sometimes. I have this guy I work with who just comes into my office, sits down and spouts off the most random shit. Reminds me a lot of Carl.

Hey hey hey, I would have never noticed it had it not been for some random comments on Twitter and references to some character on Lost that went missing for a long time.

I swear I am not Jerry Sandunsky lol.

re: The Walking Dead thread (spoiler alert, read at your own risk)

While I like the show in its own rights still, a part of me is really not liking how different this is from the original material. It's changing major story lines that were great the way they were and I just don't know how I'm feeling about that.

I think they've done it respectably. 9 times out of 10 it's a colossal failure when it comes to film and TV adaptions but Walking Dead has managed to peace together an engaging story line.

For example you look at the Resident Evil changing up the source material and absolutely butchering it and with Walking Dead that's just not the case.

Yes. I have read that and also own World War Z, and the more joking but kind of in a deadpan serious tone "The Complete Zombie Survival Guide". Both books were by Max Brooks i believe.

I am totally a fan for anything zombie. I do believe there is a remote chance of an outbreak happening in real life. I say small, very small chance. Biologically 5% chance to see what you see on the walking dead. But I do believe a more rabies/rage like virus, like 28 days later, could be possible. Those were living people, that were just infected. There are numerous books out there that say Hitler's scientists were able to reanimate dead soldier bodies, but had no real way of keeping them alive or even useful, so i guess "zombies" were technically real back then.

re: The Walking Dead thread (spoiler alert, read at your own risk)

#1- this years series was drug out too long.

#2- I too wasn't fooled by the girl ending up a zombie. Kinda figured it but thougth they would find her walking around. when the zombies were found in the barn I wondered if they would find her there.

#3- they have soo much material they can use for this show and they chose to stick with dragging out this one issue... the lost girl. the group needs to move on.

#4- Anime... I watched Dragon Ball Z when it first came out then grew up. lol. I have kids now that watch it and have gotten back into it. Now the group is battling Cell and it's being drug out to a point I'm ready to again walk away from it. lol.

#5- How many of you stick around and watch "Hell on Wheels"? it's pretty good also.

re: The Walking Dead thread (spoiler alert, read at your own risk)

I just got caught up tonight, no big surprises with them finding Sophia in the barn... Once they discovered the walkers were I there I figured that's where it was headed. Still, good first half of the season overall. Started a little slow but it picked up.

Yeah no doubt. I love being able to watch 2-3 episodes in a row.

If it's been a while since you last watched season one, rewatch it and you'll be like: "ZOMGGG, why wasn't season two like that?!"

I mean it was some INTENSE television. I definitely do enjoy the character development, but I'm more interested in them seeing what the rest of the country or surrounding area is like with the infestation.

Hopefully season three will have a lot more action.

Yeah season one was definitely more intense, but then again it was only 6 episodes. I hope the 2nd half of this season keeps the pace going a little better.

I'm guessing they'll leave the farm now.

Hopefully. I mean since they're "semi" based on the comics, I really don't know what to expect.
