The Walking Dead – S01E04

Between this episode and the last one, my patience with this show is worn thin.

Mexican gang? Helpful grandma? Gratuitous violence? I really though AMC was above jumping the shark this early.

I’ll probably watch at least one or two more episodes just to see where it goes.. but I definitely can’t take another 9 episodes of garbage like the last two.

If you forgot to set the DVR and you are a sucker for punishment, you can always watch it online for a couple bucks:

      I just think they went full retard with a few of the plot twists in the last couple episodes. I now foresee that only getting worse, but we’ll see.

        ….never go full retard

        1. LOL! Words to live by. Never go full retard. Damn that was a good laugh. Thanks, Microwave.

  2. I thought it was a great show.

    Season 1 has 2 more episodes left.

    If you’ve read the comics, you’ll see that sure there’s zombies. But the heart of the tale is on the survivors, their relationships, and how they’re dealing with the situation and each other.

      really only 6 episodes in season 1? According to the AMC press release there will be 13 episodes in season 2.

  3. The fly fishing scene at the beginning just about blew my suspension of disbelief. I can accept zombies (who can’t), but they managed to get the fly fishing terminology wronger than “semi-automatic revolver” (you fly fish with “dry flies”, not “dry lures” [expletives deleted]), had the reels mounted backwards, and as for the fishing technique…

    Rest of the episode wasn’t that bad, although I’m wondering why whatshisname wasn’t using broadheads on his bolts.

    1. i’m glad i’m not alone in this.

    2. Broadheads would be much harder to remove from a zombie skull. But this is make believe so I would have used them. Plus it too 3 arrows to take down a doe. 2 shots were in the rump and side and all on the same side and the other in the front shoulder. Later the redneck starts shooting the zombies one after another right in the head. Yeah right! You can’t hit crap with that zombie stagger. Too many technical thing wrong with this but it is entertaining for now…

  4. I was hoping for an action packed episode and got….more story.
    I don’t mind story but it’s just a bit too slow and branching off too much.

    I haven’t read the comics and don’t know the story, but if I still read comics I would’ve probably stopped reading this one.

    I still don’t understand the lack of guns. It’s America, where are the guns?

      Thanks homes, fixed it. ;)

  6. “I still don’t understand the lack of guns. It’s America, where are the guns?”

    Exactly. Not only is it America, it frickin’ Georgia. There should be guns in EVERY HOUSE THAT THEY PASS. And they don’t seem to plan anything.

    They’ve learned that zombies are attracted to humans and noise. Go blocks away and turn on a radio. Coast is clear.

    Or….get a freaking .22 scoped rifle and START KILLING ZOMBIES.

  7. What is sad that a little podcast called We’re Alive, which is done by amatures, is better than something put together by a big corperation like AMC. Frankly, I’ve given up on the Walking Dead, which should re-titled the Walking Crap or something to that affect.

    1. I couldn’t listen to more than ten minutes of We’re Alive…

    Why is it in these zombie movies only the racists and liberals survive? I wanna see 20 NRA survivalists shoot some zombies with p90s and FnFals! ‘Course it would only last 10 minutes, but would still be awesome.
