The Walking Dead > The Walking Dead Season Finale Review: "TS-19" > Comments Page 2
SBB. Daryl's crossbow is an important piece of armament for the group. It's quiet and quick. That's why he's carrying it. I'd be carrying one too if I was in the situation. You don't want to brng down every dead person with all the noise. When they had the camp site battle, Daryl was using a shotgun for the entirety of it. They're not keeping guns from him.
As for the other characters not carrying guns....that bugs me too. The first thing Rick did in the books when he arrived with the group was get everyone trained up on weapons so that they all could protect themselves and each other. It's a failure here, I agree.
As for the shortage of fuel in a place that is protecting such deadly diseases. I gotta agree with that too. I think they tried to address it with Jenner saying that he couldn't figure out how to shut down some heavy amp drawing equipment for a long time....Also, the basement looked like a scene out of Half Life, with dozens of fuel barrels left around...Ul
While I can suspend belief to accept the Zombie Apocalypse, I can't get my head around irrational characters and story lines.
Did I miss the point in the series where Daryl was judged incapable of using a firearm? He and everyone else seem chronically disinterested in bettering their current armament. No M4/M16A2 rifles and/or sidearms (and lots more ammo) were available from all the military flotsam? Or within the CDC?
Not one character was INTERESTED in any such weapons. Perhaps the writers have decided the characters are wedded to their weapons - like adversaries in a first person shooter game. Is this is where this series is ultimately going: X-Box?
And the CDC only has emergency generating capacity for 60+ days? With fuel from 55 gallon drums?!?
OK. I know the government is screwed up. But, to paraphrase Dr Jenner, the CDC is storing Ebola / Smallpox / Bio Agents. Do ya think the G could build, next to their large underground bunker, a diesel fuel tank for base
@SeanMcKennaisanimbecile: Everyone has his or her own opinions about “The Walking Dead.” Some choose to stick around and watch, while others simply find a different channel. I’m glad you were able to read my review, but I’d rather you refrain from insulting viewers and myself with derogatory comments. Instead I welcome insightful thoughts and discussion about the episode. I wish you the best of luck in finding a show that you too can enjoy.
Love this show and my advice to people who don't is, don't watch it.Robert Kirkman, the creator of the comics, has always said he wants how the zombies came to be to stay unrevealed to add more mystery and to let the readers/viewers make their own conclusions. I think Jenner whispered something to do with the blood tests, there has to be a significance for them. Maybe Rick's wife is pregnant, or one of them is infected, or one of them carries some kind of antibody to the zombie virus.
I think you have to be actually stupid to enjoy this show. So congratulations, reviewers and commentators, you are part of the herd. I mean my god, this show is AWFUL. And I like zombie movies.
I love the episode but it didn't seems like a season 1 finale...
CDC was cool, I love when they were having the wine, dinner and Hot showers. The only thing came out to weird was the Scientist willing to lock them out and killing all of them Only so he can hear Mr.Rick's speech of giving us a chance? that was little Lame and predictable.
Shane in the beginning was Heart Wrenching and showed he cared about his friend but then later on he says "I love you" to Lori and then tries to Rape her... well that was disturbing & not the move go along with I love you gesture.
I don't know why you didn't get the relationship between Dale & Andrea, in previous episode he said to Andrea that you and Amy was the closest thing to me ever since his Outbreak. plus Amy, Dal and Andrea were together in Atlanta while running so, we don't know how well they know each other so sometime we have to create past for characters we don't know how they met, escaped or survived to be together... Anyways my
All are infected, i guess that's the whisper
I think what Jenner whispered had something to do with the blood tests. His answer of "no surprises" was really kind of vague. Maybe everyone is infected, just have to have some type of trigger event occur to start the breakdown to death and then zombieville.
Good review for this episode, I would of liked it if the doc went with them, it would of shown a less bleak world, but with everyone opting didn't show much promise for the survivors(or at least the not so important ones)
I was wondering when that Jacqui girl was going to die she was given some lines but you never know much about her personality, or her relation to T dog, I'm thinking after seeing two other black people in the camp in the older episodes (a older big man, and a lady) I'm thinking maybe they knew each other somehow (maybe I'm forgetting but I don't think they ever showed a scene of them being in love so maybe they were related or friends.)
What I think is going to happen with Morgan and Merle is they might end up meeting each other maybe at the camp site. It wont be pretty.
I think what Dr jenner whispered was that ricks wife is pregant
my opinion of not just the season finale but the whole season is : interesting at best i watched cause my hubby watched it , i dont care for zombie movies and this was no exception i especially hated it when the poor horse got ate by them walking freaks, as for ricks wife and shane he outta let her be now that her husband still alive , daryl seemd like a bad ass at the beginnin and he was cool id say when it ended i got one ?? what happened to Merle?? the blond girl i feel bad for she never got to give her sister the necklace she had for her and the dale (i think it is) that was gonna stay with her that was cool i think those 2 are gonna end up together, but anyhow that what i think of this show , thanks for reading have a good day !!
I, too, was saddened that Jacqui chose to stay behind. I thought she could have been an interesting character, and was played by a good actress. Dale and Andrea held no tension for me, as they are such a big part of the comic. At least Jacqui was given some kind of personality before she bit it. I prefer that to extras that show up in a episode only so they can die later. I thought the flashback to the hospital was necessary and good. I bought that Shane assumed Rick had died. It is too bad about the attempted rape, but that also is his character from the book, unstable. I assume that this is what Jenner whispered to Rick at the end. Jenner has eyes everywhere in the complex. I am guessing he witnessed the attack and was letting Rick in on it. There were good touches in the episode. Daryl continues to hammer on the door while Rick is trying to sway Jenner. I hate it when characters all stand around with their thumb up their asses while the big dialogue scene happens. Daryl is a doer. T
