And yeah the technical dept. was not all to speed either, i meen when they said an explosion just under a nuclear blast i was expecting for the trucks to at least tumble around a bit!
My friend has lent me the 1st continum(?),Wow. That was good! Though things clearly fall apart after daddy comes back to camp i can understand the 'human' aspect of surviving the gouls(in the GN, i like the constant reminder of paternal love/protection)but really i just want to hear about them trying to find food, a safe place to be, (and avoiding the crazy people). But im pritty sure if it was that simple the series would have ended after episode 6, theres always the NEXT crisis...
anyhow, i give the season ending a 4/10, 2 for giving some history, and only 2 for the acting. I am still looking forward to next season.
kinda spoiler: Perhaps the guys brother(handless guy), is in the prison as one of the inmates like in the book
Not much of a Zombie move, more like a afternoon soap opera. Last night, they kill something like only 4 zombie and it was not much a fight. The person who wrote it must have been a high school drama queen. Not sure if I will watch it again, unless there is some real Zombie mayhem.
Fargin is spot on his assessment.
Its not zombies they have to fight, its the humanity... so they say
Had it folllowed the book more, I think most would still be disappointed. Zombies are the catalyst but never the main focus, you take a lot away here when its so heavily geared towards that. I think the WWZ movie would actually rely on that, since the stories are a little more simple than what Kirkman is trying to do. Its hard to explain (Like with his Invincible series, which I am hooked on and still don't know why) The show suffers a bit from some rough acting. I never cared about characters in a book in this genre as much as with TWD. Even the ones I hated.
Rick was always a reluctant leader (without spoiling anything) and ended up walking a fine line with his own morals in a way that you cared about lingering effects. The latest episode touched off a little more on Shane & Lori dynamic, which was an afterthought in the comic since [spoiler: Shane gets ended pretty fast by little grimes] that little aspect changes things enough to be noticeable. Its not really about those that read the series and those that don't, it messes with the way things unfold and what made Kirkman's structure work in the big picture.
I'm rather dissapointed, the whole episode you just have to wait untill a zombie shows up, and in the meantime, you just have to listen to borring conversations, that lead nowhere, like last episode, we saw 2 walkers in the last two seconds, the whole other episode was about his ugly wife, and the blond hysterical girl whining, the story is good, the actors ruin it, you actually start wishing they will suffer a painfull death
I like the series so far. It more about people and their reactions to a really difficult situation. Zombies are only part of the picture.
The story focuses on this small group, so you don't have much of a picture about what is happening elsewhere.
I have not read the graphic novels so I don't know how closely it tracks.
I am looking forward to the next season.
Question - how long can the Zombies survive without eating? It would seem at some point many would cease to function due to lack of food
