@ ZOMBIE: LOL! That'll be addressed at next week's roundtable discussion.
How does Lori know the baby's Rick's for sure? :S
Also does anyone know which episode was it when Dale saw Shane aiming the gun at Rick?
so... do zombies have to poop?
@ Stephen: Thanks for the response. It all seems to make sense. Even though it's all hypothetical, this type of information and these little details help to flesh out (pardon the pun) the story. Thanks. Good point about the cold weather.
SUNDAY'S EPISODE IS GONNA BLOW YOUR DOORS OFF !!
My understanding is that the zombies eat because of a leftover human instinct, not because they actually have to do it to survive. Ultimately the only reason we eat is so we can generate the electrical impulses necessary to tell our muscles to contract. The zombies are getting that electrical power from something else, presumably the virus generates it.
We also use the nutrients in food to rebuild our tissues but the zombies aren't as concerned with that. They don't need functioning organs to keep moving, as long as they have muscles and a brain they'll keep going. Though logically they should eventually wear themselves out from normal wear and tear because muscles can't operate indefinately without regeneration. Might take months or years but they should die off.
To me the pressing question is what will happen when winter comes. I don't know if winter ever comes in the comic but I've seen other zombie stories where the zombies freeze solid in the cold because they don't
I still very much enjoy the show. Yeah, the Sophia storyline might be stale but it is the reason why everyone is at the farm in the first place. The search for Sophia opened the door for all the major events of this season. It set the stage for Carl being shot, which led to everyone moving to Hershel's farm, Daryl being shot on his way back from looking for Sophia, and Shane and Andrea hooking up while out looking for Sophia. Hershel's farm led to Glenn and Maggie (played by Lauren Cohan whom I just discovered grew up about 20 miles from where I live) hookin up, to the revelation of Lori's pregnancy and the discovery of the walkers in the barn. Lori's pregnancy and Glenn-the-squealer led to Rick's discovery of morning after pills and to Dale's knowledge of Lori's pregnancy and the walkers in the barn, respectively. You get the idea.
If you think about it, the storyline of the search for Sophia itself has taken up only about two minutes of episode time each of the past few epis
Sorry but i dont like it anymore. it was okay at first but it needs to pick up the pace and i really dont wanna stick around to find out. Sorry. Got better things to do ya know?
Hate to burst your bubble there Bonnie but odds are alot of people HAVE stopped watching. Personally I'm watching on the hope that it will pick up again. It's not actually constant head-exploding gore that keeps me interested, it's changing scenery. We've been staring at waving fields of tall grass for weeks now.
And without coming off too cocky, yeah I could give these writers some pointers. You don't make the backdrop of the season the search for an extra character who may have had 2 lines the entire series. Anyone who's ever written a shopping list knows that. It would've been so easy to drop in a few flashbacks about loveable little Sophia to actually make us care that she's gone. It's like they didn't even watch these things during editing...
I'm new to this, but it seems as I read the comments, the general impression from negative emails is that: "You're doing it wrong: I could do it better!" and "You're doing it wrong; I'm about to stop watching!" But something keeps you watching - could it be the excellent caliber of the actors, the plot line, the character development....oh, and the visceral gore that really does keep happening. I do understand that negative comments keep interest high, so keep on kwetching. It's a really great show and however you keep all of us watching is "pie in the sky".
I'm not bored at all with this. Sure its a zombie show, and zombies mean semi-comic headshot killing, but this show has ALWAYS been about the real 'Walking Dead' - those being living survivors of the zombie apocalypse and what it means to live without hope. I thought some of the best TV I've seen this year happened in this episode, Glen showing just how fearsome and quick-thinking he can be, or how Andrea can go on living - or how any of them can go on living with the knowledge that their world is gone. They are food, and they will die either AS food or in a mercy killing. THat's what makes Rick so interesting, and Lori for that matter. He knows the score, but he's not giving up hope. He can't because like it or not, he's the leader. I found his heart-to-heart with Lori incredibly well executed from writing to acting to directing - how the last image of the epsiode are the two of them, stage left, alone against a cruel world.
The show is really lacking in the action department. The mid-season finale better be good. The zombies getting out the barn and attacking everyone for example?
As much as I don't want Sophia to be a walker, I can't really see this situation ending a different way. They didn't make her a "real" character so making her a victim is about the best they can do from a story perspective. Sad.
This is a much better episode. I enjoyed reading this more than watching the actual episode.
Man, this season has been a time-waster. There were a few good moments but otherwise just tedious and boring. I find myself looking at the clock thinking they are going to pick up the pace anytime now but then it launches into another long melodramatic scene. I find this to be one of the most unoriginal series, it seems to be cut and pasted from other better films and I truly wonder if the writers are just trying to get to this midseason break because they don't have any more ideas. No, I have not read the graphic novels but I am a longtime serious old school horror fan and I have to say that this crap stinks. I had high hopes but in the end I realize that we viewers are the real zombies, tuning in every week staring dumbfounded at the tv waiting for something to happen.
WTF ohmygodjohntravolta -
this isn't a spoiler site.
Can admin remove this please??
I really hope that is not how it ends. How can they make poor Sophia a walker? I can't imagine what Carol will be going through, not to mention, Rick, cause it's his fault Sophia got lost. If I were Carol I would just take a gun and kill myself right then....how sad.
If you really think about it, people would be having alot of sex as well as killing zombies. With everyday stress with just trying to stay alive... you would NEED to unwind! What better way?
I Agree the sophia story needs to end one way or another. Love Daryl and his sarcasm on the show, but I cannot stand Andrea, couldn't stand her when she was on The Shield, hate her more on here, keep waiting for a zombie to get her. But all and all I love the show, definietly something different to watch, instead of reality tv.
Everyone thinks this is the best thing on TV.
Take great actors and put them in tough situatiions with an unreal scenario and you get the Walking Dead.
A top notch medium for extraordinary actors to ply their trade.
Keep it up
This show is getting tiring...I hope next week's finale renews my interest. The past 3 episodes were just snooze-fests!
It's time for Sophia to be found (one way or the other) as this story line has gone on too long. Herschel explained why he has walkers in the barn but I find it hard to believe, these family members are dead whether they are walking around or not. I missed seeing Daryl this episode, he's coming across to me as one of the better characters. Andrea and Shane was coming for a while and I did like the urban zombie scene, it's been too long on the farm. Rick took the news about Lori's infidelity well and I'm glad that he found out about the pregnancy. Hopefully this will give Rick and Lori the backdrop to start to change into the pragmatic people they'll need to become. Dale, I liked the confrontation with Shane. He is a good foil to get the characters to open up.
Overall I really liked Secrets but: 1) it's time to move off the farm, 2) time to end the Sophie hunt, and 3) get back to showing how they are trying to survive day by day.
Typo...meant to say *wouldn't* be all be running around...
I completely agree with Spookypaws. If the zombie apocalypse ever really did happen, it would all be running around killing zombies all day everyday. There would be plenty of times where those who survived would just be sitting around, contemplating their new way of life and trying to decide what to do next. Although the show may be moving at a slower pace than last season, it is completely realistic. But seriously, give up on Sophia already.
That's some well English Brittany. There's a link above to two paysites. I think AMC.com has it's own online player, and 1channel.ch, among many others, has it for free if you don't live in Yankistan. Those are some places where it watch you can.
