This show is so fawking awesome now...Rick and Daryl are fucking badass.

I love how the show has finally created the sense of unknown dread the comics create so well. That sense that every decision you make you are just waiting for the next bad thing looming around the corner...whether it be a huge herd of Walkers or a group of people you dont know if you can trust.

Those first two episodes of season 3 really brought the gore. The gore was relentless and of very high quality. Seriously, enough killings for 4 standard horror movies.

Maybe it's being desensitized or whatever, but when you try to look at from the casual horror film watcher view, you really can't believe all the violence that those 2 episodes showed. I can take it, but really if you think about it, that was amazing. Imagine if you showed this to someone who's only "zombie experience" was NOTLD. They would be blown away.

Which brings me to this. Horror take note. That's how you present gore in a movie. High practical effects, minimal cgi.

Agreed, brutal couple of episodes to kick off this season. The pacing has improved, as has the writing. Of course, Carl is still getting loose somehow, ha ha, but I cannot wait to see where this season goes.

I really don't mind Carl this season...yeah, he's getting loose, but he's doing good things this time...not fucking everything up. And he's totally macking on Beth.

This weekend is the mid-season finale. Pretty wicked season to say the least. I am really looking forward to this Sunday’s episode. Two things, however, I am not fond of:

Issue A. TV show Andrea should have been dead ages ago. I find her constant disobedience to Rick’s core group irritating and adolescent. Whether it be taking Shane’s side, arguing with Dale, or now being the Governor’s fuck buddy. She’s nowhere near as competent and appealing as the comic book Andrea. TV show Andrea reminds me of comic book Carol. I hope she receives the same fate.

Issue B. Michonne. Wow, did the writers drop the ball on this character. Everyone kept hyping her entrance into the series, but the writers have completely botched it. She's not interesting. Not fun to watch. So far hasn't even been an asset to anything worthwhile. And suffers from being the MOST ONE NOTE character in the entire series. And that's saying something.

But hopefully, now that Michonne has been introduced to Rick, we will see her progress and develop (as evident of thanking Herschel for fixing her up) because I don’t think I can take much more of her mopery.

Everything else is cream cheese. Rick is a loony badass and Daryl’s character arc from ornery hillbilly to trustworthy and endearing team member is certainly some of the best aspects of the show. As well as this seasons awesome zombie carnage.

And while the comic book Governor is one of the most ruthless, vicious, and vile enemies ever to grace the comic book medium, I do have to say, I really enjoy TV show Governor and the route the writers chose to take with him. He’s charming and cunning on the outside, but completely sadistic and psychotic on the inside….sort of like a real politician. Ha!

I am not up to date on the books [still haven't read beyond the first five or six collections] but from what I've seen so far I actually like the Governor in the show way better. I don't know what everyone sees in the comic version of the Governor.

The Michonne character is not annoying in the way I thought she would be, but I agree, her character is pretty dull.

Did anyone notice the zombie who resembled the plaid airport zombie from Dawn Of The Dead?


I thought that was really cool.

My biggest peeve about this show: 97% if the dialogue is whispered. God damn Whispering Dead.
