The Walking Dead > The Walking Dead Review: Zombie Fishing > Comments Page 2
Maybe hershel is hiding family members that were turned in there. Could be why maggie was so upset when the well zombie was ripped apart and head smashed in. I think its odd with a world filled with zombies they have managed to live zombie free they even had time to have sex without seeing a single one
Stephen I'm guessing she wrote the brand name. "Get me a Blue Bell single" or something. I don't know why she just didn't come out and say " I need a home pregnancy test" as he was going to find out anyway. And what if they didn't have that brand? It's another in a line of cheap contrivances the show goes to in an effort to amp up tension.
Colm, the comic doesn't have character development, with the exception of Rick's descent into madness. A character continues to play what they've always played in the books. Even Andrea's transformation from shrinking violet to bad ass played out in like one issue and then that's what she is for the rest of it. Lori was always whining. Carl, (the good, comics, Carl) was always as tough, and sometimes tougher, than his Dad. They don't spend an inordinate amount of time talking about their feelings.
What I'd like to know is how do you say "Glenn, go get me a home pregnancy test" without saying "home pregnancy test"?
I mean do those things have some complicated scientific name like "polycarbonate costamoisten" that everyone knows? Did she memorize the bar code and give it to Glenn? The scene would have been just as effective if she just wrote it down and they exchanged looks; Glenn being all surprised in the Pharmacy didn't make any dang sense.
And I agree that the Sophia thing is getting dull. It's a character that no one is invested in, why are they doing an epic story arc around it?
The ep was a little slow but, I guess you can't expect to have a high volicity episode every week, we have to see the other side of these people not just the survival part. What they are going through inside and what they are missing and needing, sort of a break. I liked it. Its one of my favorite shows...
Auch... quit complaining about the character development, as anyone who has read the comics knows, character development is the bedrock of it. It is not all supposed to be shooting zombies but about how people survive in this world.
I thought the episode was good for its purpose, which is setting the stage for what comes next. Loved the Glen-Maggie dialogue, Glen is much more likeable and realistic than in the comic books. The Well-Zombie scene I thought was deliberately campy verging on black comedy which works well on such a bleak show. It was like "The Three Stooges try to get a zombie out of a well and f_ck it up".
@Dax....Nope! I thought the same thing! Lol
ok i just had this thought but don't they have a bathroom she could have done the pee test in. wouldn't that have been a better option. she could have gotten rid of the test without anyone seeing it.
i mean seriously let's just walk out into the middle of a field to take a pregnancy test with random zombies around and squat to take a pee test.
Am I the only one who thought Lori had a yeast infection?
I too must agree that the last minute and half was wasted on a woman urinating. Honestly, the time made up of her walking from the house, dodging people AND finding the time to squat and pee still would have NOT been enough time to get a response back from that test.
I think everyone can agree on the fact that it is Shane's baby. Honestly, regardless of the fact you thought your husband was dead, did you really think sleeping with his co-worker would solve anything? Considering the show is indeed set in the current year, she will still manage the effort to pull off the fact that it is Rick's baby, as I highly doubt they'll be able to perform an amniocentesis.
Overall, I seriously think that this show taking on a pregnancy storyline is an absolute waste of time. No good at all will come from this. If anything, she'll slow them all down. I say feed the bitch to the zombies if worse comes to worse.
worlds fastest pregnancy test. bet all woman wish they were that fast.
maybe in one of the next episodes someone will get curious and see what he is hiding in the barn.
they really need to move on from the looking for Sophia thing. she should have just stayed where Rick told her to stay but no she had to run away.
i don't know about the setting shop up at the farm. it doesn't really provide a way to further the story line and if they only have 6 episodes this time around they already spent most of them at the farm not doing much.
move on from the farm already. where were they headed anyway. weren't they going to a military base.
What?!? Something is in the barn? I kinda want to know what it is. Whatever it is I hope they get to it soon because I am sick of life on Hershel farm. For real.
For the people who has been following the comic book all this months and years, will have already figure out what is inside the barn and that Lori is pregnant thanks to Shane. Beside that, the episode is just a build up of situation that in the comic we already know. They better move on with more interested situation or will become just another boring show!!!!!
I agree that it was really a bland episode. It moved no story forward. It really shone no new light on any character..at all. Gave Daryl a chance to show that he knew some native lore, I guess, and that he's taken to only carrying one bolt for his crossbow, he's so confident.
It really seems like the show is just waiting around for the mid season break so they can have their Big Reveal of "What's In The Barn?"
Really, the Lost Sophia plotline is played out. What is the use of it? I can't imagine any viewer is all angsty about a little girl we've hardly ever seen on screen, and who has said almost nothing. It's the LEAST eagerly anticipated plot line ever. And it's gone on so long that she's clearly alive, so... what?
I second the peeing thing. We wasted screentime on pottytime?
Good review. Not a very good episode.
