Nope. Google had issues with the T&A threads we used to have even though they weren't located on the main forum. TJ had to work very hard to get back in Google's good graces.

They shouldn't even be walking outside their walls without being covered in zombie guts. I mean season 1 you learned this. Then there's everyone emotionally running away on their own or splitting into tiny groups. Zero survival instincts in a show about survival, where the main character annoyingly talks about survival all the time.
This is what I'm talking about when I talked about the internal logic of the show. They've set up certain "rules" for how zombies behave but only follow them when it's convenient for the plot. The characters discover survival methods like this... the guts, the zombie pets (which can be used as pack mules), etc. but they don't follow them when it serves the plot more for the characters to be in peril. It's the same thing with zombies following sound. They'll follow that rule as long as it's convenient, but they'll casually disregard it as soon as it's not (example, last season a few of the survivors discover a dormant zombie herd down the road.... and not long after they get into a loud shouting match less than a mile away... and not even one of them is concerned about their shouting drawing the attention of the herd.)

I'm thinking it's 50/50 that Glenn is still alive. Which is way up from the 0/100 feeling I had at the end of the show.

I like the despair porn quote! Couldn't have said it better.

I don't get the point of the survivors anymore, why stay alive if you don't try to build something. As much as our society is hosed up if things ever got this bad I like to think there are enough people who would band together and help each other recover and find a better way to live.

With better shows on like Fargo on I am lucky to stay current on Walking Dead. It is like oh there is a show taking up DVR space, guess I should watch it.

zen Morgan is boring and endangers everyone else's lives.

they should rename the show The Boring Dead when they have episodes like this one.

also, the guy who plays Glenn didn't have his name in the opening credits. that was very noticeable. i am sure the writers are trolling everyone now. in past seasons, even when a character died, they still kept the actor/actresses name in the opening credits for a while.

also, they killed Tabitha... those bastards!

pretty much this...

Quote:
Is there another show on television that routinely — routinely — throws away entire episodes on obvious filler like TWD did last night? The only reason there’s not more anger among the fans is because we’re all used to this now. Once or twice a season, the story arc will screech to a halt and we’ll get a full hour of the cast talking about, and doing, nothing much in particular. I think of these episodes as “holding patterns,” where the writers know where they want to go — in this case, the big reveal about whether Glenn lived or died — but they can’t get there yet because the important stuff’s being saved for the mid-season finale. They’ve got time to kill, so that’s what they do. They kill it. (There were a lot of hours like this, as I recall, back when the show was set on Hershel’s farm and the Grimes gang had to search and search and search for Sophia, never suspecting until the big reveal that she was dead in the barn.) So ephemeral are the holding-pattern episodes that, within five minutes of the show ending, I can barely remember what happened. I have to think hard afterward to bring the details back. “Maggie announced she’s pregnant and … what else? Oh, Rick finally kissed the blonde. And Deanna’s turning to the dark side. And there’s some sort of lesbian subplot now. And Deanna’s whiny son stole the crackers.” Anything I missed? Why devote much thought to a grumble thread when the writers didn’t devote much thought to the episode?

IMHO, it's just been lousy and manipulative writing so far this season. the plot moves forward at an agonizingly slow pace and the writers' trick of separating the cast into small groups and devoting a separate episode to showing how each group is dealing with the same event, guarantees that the show can never pick up any sort of normal pace. it's all filler between the season premiere and the midseason finale anyway... just a way for the writers to get from point A to point B as slowly as possible so that they can churn out a profitable # of episodes for DVDs and syndication down the road.

I like it but I was rooting for Henry Rollins since the role was literally created for him.

Didn't Rick say he needed help when he was trapped in the RV? Also, that episode was awful. This show is 90 percent filler now.

Let's see...the first couple of minutes then the last minute advanced the story...all the rest was more filler. This show is getting terrible about that.

I found it amusing how everyone's attention was drawn to those balloons like it they were Spielberg characters reacting to a giant mothership or dinosaur.

Another bit of silliness from the episode before... when Daryl, Abraham and Sasha were leading the zombie herd and the task was broken up by some new baddies firing machine guns... according to the show's internal logic that should have turned the zombie herd into a frenzy. Instead the herd just kinda vanished.

The show wants to be taken seriously... Ash vs Evil Dead as a counter example, doesn't.

it is. the showrunners are enamored with that silly storytelling technique of having some event happening, and then spending an episode on each little group showing how they react to it. you don't move the story forward and you get 4 or 5 episodes that basically take place concurrently. it's sort of an insult to the viewer to make them wait 3 or 4 episodes to find out how some event plays out with a character simply because you go off and focus on other characters for a while instead. these episodes are filler in the worst way. i'm only sticking around to see how this show ends. i think people are getting sick of zombies now, so there are maybe only 2 or 3 more seasons to go. the midseason finale will likely introduce the "saviors" with a cliffhanger. then the next half of this season will focus on that new threat.

I guarantee you the showrunner of TWD fancies the show as a serious human survival drama... they totally want to be taken seriously at the Emmy's ala Game of Thrones. The first episode this season had a non-linear time structure with the flashback scenes shot in arty black and white... the Morgan episode was supposed to be this serious philosophical contemplation on the value of human life. If at one point in the show's history there was a tone that regarded its zombie apocalypse premise as something knowingly hokey, he "lol y'all" speak might be something more than "fanboy who can't make an argument" speak... the people who make the show are definitely trying for something that can withstand a little scrutiny.

Ash vs. Evil Dead BTW has been great so far, and it knows exactly what it is, so I'd never bother scrutinizing the plot consistency the same way I would for TWD... because TWD wants it and AvED doesn't.

Ash: OK, look, if we get this done quick enough, we might have time to stop for churros. That's not a racist thing, Pablo. That's just a great dessert.
Pablo: OK. You know I'm not Mexican, right?
Ash: That's the spirit.
