Awesome...we love this show as well.  My daughter freaked out last weekend thinking we forgot to put the PVR on to record it, but realized it was the following Sunday...  TODAY!  Just checked and we got 1 hour and 33 minutes...woot!  Can't wait to watch it...not time tonight, so tomorrow.  :-)

Re: 'The Walking Dead', Season 2, Begins Tonight

I have enjoyed the first two episodes so far.  I haven't even missed the fact that Jan DeBont has left the show behind-the-scenes.  

 

I am generally pretty sick to death of zombie stories, but Walking Dead really manages to focus on the people and make the stories much more interesting.

In the middle of the night, a phone that should never ring, begins to do just that... Then the terror begins. The Dead Phone - just 99 cents

Ah I was looking for this thread the other day!  :-)  Pretty good episode the last one...the one before that though, when the zombie heard was walking through all the cars...my daughter and I were freaking out, LOL!  The blonde though...she is so STOOPID sometimes!  No wonder they won't give her a gun!!

We watched the last episode last night for Halloween.  :-)  OMG I can't believe he killed that dude that shot Carl in order to get away...  Wow.

Re: New Episodes 'The Walking Dead', Season 2

Well, I thought season 2 was kind of ho-hum. The group was winnowed (Shane finally bought it, thank god); Hershel's farm turned out to be no haven; Lori became an inconsistent *itch; and, the zombie plague turned more scientific with the revelation that anyone who dies w/out suffering major head trauma will turn into a zombie. The second half of season 2 had more action but didn't resolve the question of long term survival. I've grown a bit sick of the group who seem to keep questioning Rick even though he is undoubtably the most equipped to deal with the zombies. Other than Rick (who I would call the series' protagonist), I also like Andrea because she's become a hardened survivor and Hershel, because he's has an old fashioned gentility about him. But I don't really have an emotional stake in the ongoing survival of any of the others, and I've grown to really dislike Lori. OK, so I suppose I don't want to see the kid Carl get eaten, but he's not precocious enough for me and his emotional reactions are underwhelming. He's just too stiff--might as well have a little robot playing the part.

Re: New Episodes 'The Walking Dead', Season 2

Huh, I we really liked it!  I don't try to analyze these types of shows too deeply...otherwise it just takes the fun out of it, LOL!  Glad Shane is dead...the man was a loose cannon and bound to kill someone else, especially Rick.  Lori, I'm not sure what her deal is...she seems to always want it both ways.  I was ticked she flipped out at Rick for kiling Shane when really it was all because of HER.  Dork.  I'm glad Rick finally read them all the riot act and took the leader roll by the horns.  :-)

 

I kind of figured they would be chased out of that farm eventually though...should be interesting to see what happens with the prison.  Yeah I love Andrea as well...so glad she was not killed out in the woods, LOL!  Carl? I think he's doing as well as he can while growing up in the middle of a zombie apocalypse.  He seems to already be desensitized which is not surprising. Maybe that's why he seems so robotic?

 

That scene though were Hershel was looking back and the barn was on fire...the walkers all lined up and walking away from it...that was epic.  :-)

 

Nice to see they added a character from the cominc finally show up as well...and that she saved Andrea's a$$, LOL
