Re: The Walking Dead
Well, perhaps he will make time to do so when he finishes exploring his 'feelings' about her and contemplating what love means with his bromance partner, Rick.
Meanwhile, Dale's heart is crushed when he learns that Glenn's been tapping the farmer's slut daughter.  He confronts Porky and has a heart attack, and we're stuck on the damn farm for another 4 episodes while he recovers...

Re: The Walking Dead
Being a sci-fi fan and someone who appreciates Simon Pegg's humor you'd think I'd have seen that one but no I have not.  I'll have to defer to AWK.
Went into watching Paul with low expectations...left the movie pleasantly surprised.  I would definitely recommend watching it.

I appreciate the recommendation, AWK, I'll look into watching it.

Re: The Walking Dead
So I finally watched "The Talking Dead" last night and I was very pleased to see and hear the guest, Dave Navarro, make some of the same complaints about the show that I've been making.  Just to paraphrase one; 'I don't think it's asking too much to expect to actually see some Zombies on a zombie show'.  Epic.  I enjoyed seeing the producer squirm a little...I think he even bristled.

Well, we're going to be stuck on Lifetime's Zombie Farm anyway because of Lori's car accident following her hissy-fit...unless she gets eaten by the zombie that she hit.

I know!  Shocking ain't it!

But, GarMan, 'it gets better'...just be patient...maybe we'll get to see the girls doing their nails while talking about character development...ooooh...I just get chills thinking about it!  And another 18 hour episode arc with TWO bed-ridden characters (assuming Lori isn't eaten first)!  Won't that be fun?

Nah.  I have this thing that allows me to change the channel if I don't like what's on.

"Hey my friends are the ones that wanted to eat at that shootty hole in the wall that only served bread and wine.  What kind of brick and mud business model is that.  Stick to the cart if that's all you're going to serve.  Then that dude came in with like 12 other people, and some of them weren't even wearing shoes, and the restaurant sat them right across from us. It was gross, and they were all stinky and dirty.  Then dude starts talking about eating his body and drinking his blood...I almost lost it.  That's the last supper I'll ever have there, and I hope he dies a horrible death."

Star Andrew Lincoln says the secret message Dr. Jenner whispered to Rick will be revealed by the end of the season. He doesn't reveal much else about it, but he does hint that Dr. Jenner's actions reveal just how bad it must have been:


"This is a scientist who seemingly held all the cards to what this epidemic is about and I do think, you know, you would imagine he would have something of value to say on that matter. Well, he chose to kill himself."

Lincoln also says the characters will soon leave the farm because "something happens and they realize very quickly that the farm is not as secure as they may think."

Seems like more of that "just be patient...  it gets better" crap.

Re: The Walking Dead
Don't you know, Buzz, that this bunch isn't happy unless they are bitching?

I thought it was pretty awesome.  All that depth and sharing and character development and hugging it out.  Why fudge all that up with blood and guts and gunfire and zombies and confrontation?

Re: The Walking Dead
It was a fair episode, but it's still losing me.  I hate Lori.  I hate every second that heroin-chic bitch is on the screen. I hate Sheriff Twerp, too.  Kid with the hat pisses me off. 

When I'm actively rooting for all the major characters to die, that's not a good sign. 


If they were smart, here's where they'd take the show.  Let Lori get bitten.  You know she's going to die then so that will make 93.7% of the viewers happy.  But don't kill her. 

Chain her up in the barn and keep her fed.  Let the baby grow. Sedate her when she's about 8.5 months along and C-section it.  Then shoot her in the head.  See if the baby comes out zombie infant or normal. 

While all that's happening kill off Rick, Carl, Andrea, Herschel, Sophia's mom, all the other hillbillies in the house, the bad accent chick who likes Wong Foo and a couple hundred zombies.  Leave Shane and the black dude and Dale.  Then let them go search for zombie strip clubs or something. 
If you want free cheese, look in a mousetrap.

The Walking Dead Season 2 McFarlane Toys Blu-ray Case Will Poke Your Eye Out
February 12, 2012

85
Share MacFarlane Toys has teamed up with Anchor Bay Home Entertainment to offer up a little extra treat when The Walking Dead: Season 2 arrives on Blu-ray and DVD later this year.
Today at Toy Fair 2012, MacFarlane Toys unveiled a zombie head package for the special edition release of The Walking Dead: Season 2 on Blu-ray (and likely DVD as well, though that is currently unconfirmed). No other details about the release are available at this time, and likely won't be announced for a few more months.

The zombie head is appropriately rotting with chunks of flesh missing, and stuck on a pedestal as if recently separated from the body it was once attached to. Completing the gory effect is a screwdriver rammed through its eye and into the eye socket.

Access to the Blu-rays inside is achieved by popping the head up like a Pez dispenser. Is that a great effect or what?

Be sure to check out the return of The Walking Dead on AMC tonight as the second season continues with six consecutive episodes. I'll be publishing a preview of the episode prior to it airing.

So far the 2nd half of the season is returning to the glory that was season 1.  Herschel and Rick are about to start fudgeing shoot up.

Re: The Walking Dead
I'm actually a little bit disappointed with last nights episode. It took a whole hour, minus 25 minutes of commercials, to get Rick, Glenn, Doc and Lori back to the farm. It ended with Lori all up in Ricks ear trying to brain wash him. I'm with K on this one, Lori needs to go. It would totally boost ratings to off Lori by a horrifying Zombie death......then she comes back to eat her own son.
