Re: The Walking Dead (Season 3)

Y'know, originally I disdained them breaking the seasons up like they do, then I remembered how painful it was after the first season and having to wait an entire year for season two.  At least this way it's only seven months.

Still hurts, but not as much. lol

Re: The Walking Dead (Season 3)

True words my friend, true words. smile

Re: The Walking Dead (Season 3)

Well, I just finished watching it.  All I can say are...

1. Holy shit!
2. Jesus Christ...

And, lastly...

3. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

You'll know which parts they apply to when you see them.

I can't wait 'til Saturday.  By then our Limey friends will have seen it and we can discuss it openly.

Re: The Walking Dead (Season 3)

Yes, please, folks, definitely WAIT TO DISCUSS until our Brit friends have seen the final episode (they get it on Friday, I believe). 

If you do wish to discuss, use SPOILER ALERTS (click here for a tip on making them invisible, if you want to play it safe).

Does that mean that we can't say that he.. Ah well ok then. Hahaha big_smile

Re: The Walking Dead (Season 3)

Yeah looking forward to when we can discuss it.  Curious what others thought.  Some surprises, that's for sure.

Re: The Walking Dead (Season 3)

I love when season finales make me not give a shit about the next season.

I haven't seen balls dropped that hard since (insert porno joke here). The second half of this season was almost on par with the second half of season 1. Got worse as it went on, to the point where I didn't give a shit about the next season.

Re: The Walking Dead (Season 3)

Whoa.  Just... whoa.  Totally not what I expected.  Can't wait til our friends across the pond see it, so we can go nuts discussing this.

Re: The Walking Dead (Season 3)

Well I just read 108, at least I can still enjoy some of the characters there.

Re: The Walking Dead (Season 3)

I just gotta say the mid season ending, with the 2 brothers sentenced to death by the Governor had to be one of the coolest endings I have ever seen.   I don't think this past 2 months has lived up to that cliff-hanger.   

I didn't like this season finale for a numnber of reasons.  First is......tell ya on the weekend if I can....

That was very cool from her.

And it WAS really useful... Damn.

Re: The Walking Dead (Season 3)

I will admit I was fairly close to needing it...in a macho guy way of course.

Re: The Walking Dead (Season 3)

Oh, dude, I didn't cry, I just lost my shit.  "NO!  F*** YOU!  NO, NO, NO!" lol

Re: The Walking Dead (Season 3)

If you watched The Talking Dead episode afterwards, the toilet paper bit was rather fitting.

Re: The Walking Dead (Season 3)

At first I was like NOOOO WTF YOU CANT DO THAT!! Then I was angry that they left it like that, then I was disappointed but after sleeping on it and thinking about it a bit more it was actually quite fitting to the over all feel of the last few weeks.

I am excited for the next season. There's so many things that need to be done, new stories to be told and a certain madness has finally ended, now we can get on with it instead of being sucked back into the pussification of a certain character.

Ps. Where does Daryl get his hair cut? He is definitely rocking the sharp as a blade hair cut at the moment. Survivor chic?

Re: The Walking Dead (Season 3)

ok, my question....what was the deal with bringing the elderly to the prison?   I mean if your gonna do that, why not move into Woodbury?  After all, it's probably more fortified than the prison and there's probably a stockpile of weapons there.    And think about it, what's all those old people going to eat?

The attack on the prison was pretty weak,  the Woodbury army was heavily armed, experienced or not and it was a stretch to think a couple of smoke grenades would have scared them off.   

Everyone always asks who cuts the grass at the prison......well where's all the zombie bodies that are killed every week, you think they'd be piling up all over the place.....lol.

Re: The Walking Dead (Season 3)

Yay, it's Saturday!  Which means our UK brethren will have seen it by now, so we can openly discuss.  But just in case, I'll go ahead and post a...

SPOILER WARNING (left click and drag below to read):
I actually loved that they didn't give us the war they'd been teasing at the last half of the season.  When you think about it, the way it went down was really the only way it COULD have gone down and still have Rick and his group survive.  They were ridiculously outnumbered and outgunned; if they'd tried to take the Governor and his crew head-on, they would have all been dead within minutes.  Instead Rick used the Governor's own tactics and lured him and his team into a pit of walkers.  But that's just one of the things that makes this show so great; they set you up for one thing, then play directly against your expectations.  It makes it difficult to guess what's going to happen next, and I like that.

I HATE that Andrea's gone.  HATE, HATE, HATE it.  The character's been the target of serious hatin' but what did she do that was so disgust-worthy?  Andrea a civil rights lawyer, a humanist.  Naturally she's going to do whatever she can to save as many lives as possible.  Even after she learned the Governor's true nature, she still couldn't bring herself to kill him because humanists believe that every life is precious.  It's kind of their thing.  Why is having morals, scruples, ethics, hate-worthy?  It makes no sense to me.  And Laurie Holden should be commended for her performance this season.  If she doesn't at least get an Emmy nomination, I'll be pissed.

And, FINALLY, I think I finally figured out why the Governor is the way he is.  I think Phillip saw the zombie apocalypse as his chance to be the powerful leader he'd probably always only wished he could be in his earlier life.  I don't think it's a matter of absolute power corrupting absolutely; I think it's the simple fact that there is no law, no cops, no repercussions.  He was a husband and father burdened with responsibility, and as he said himself at one point, always taking shit from a boss younger and less intelligent than Phillip himself.  And now he's free to re-invent himself as the strong, aggressive force he probably always wanted to be before, but was never able to be.  That, I think, is the key to the Governor.  It's not about survival, it's not about marking his territory.  It's about wanting to be feared, a force to be reckoned with, wanting to be respected.  And after the failed prison attack, when he pulls his people over, he realizes Rick and his group made him look like a punk, and that's why he gunned his people down.  Not out of anger, not because they refused to go back and attack the prison again, but because like the bully who gets knocked out by the school nerd, he suddenly felt weak again -- like he was in his previous life.  That's my take, anyway.

As for why Rick would bring the people back to the prison rather than stay in Woodsbury...would YOU stay in Woodsbury if you knew the psychopath who used to rule the joint is still out there, hungry for revenge?  Would YOU stay in that place, knowing the man who wants to kill you knows every square inch of it, every weak point, every lapse in its defense?  No.  Going back to the prison was the smart thing to do.

However, it will blow up in his face.  Why?  Because as Greg Nicotero said a couple weeks ago on Talking Dead, the writers' approach is to have everything Rick does blow up in his face.  He will always try to do the right thing, but the writers will find a way for it to backfire on him.

As for next season, I'm glad they kept The Governor around.  It took me a long time to warm up to him but I finally did, now I can't wait to see what the sick bastard does next.  He's definitely become one of those "love to hate him" characters, and after he killed Merle in such a a way as to guarantee Merle would become a walker, that's the kind of vicious son of a bitch you want as a series villain.

END SPOILERS

That's my two cents.

Re: The Walking Dead (Season 3)

I was so freaking sad my favorite of them all is gone.
So much I'm not even interested in following what's next.

Nah, I'm just fooling around. lol

But the toilet papers were useful, I cried. I'm not a tough guy like LoudLon. lol

Re: The Walking Dead (Season 3)

What?  I cry.  When I chop onions.  When I catch my misters in my zipper.  When I fail to beat a man to death and merely render him quadriplegic.  These things affect me, man.

Still I wonder how the H3LL can you catch your misters in a zipper. Clumsiness I bet.

Re: The Walking Dead (Season 3)

Well, let's see YOU try to squeeze a pair of bowling balls into a ziploc bag and see how far YOU get. big_smile
