Re: 2x08

i kinda liked this episodes .... atleast in the first few minutes after finished watching it .... but after thinking about it ....

SPOILER Show
it`s not the comic so Rick and the others don´t have a reason to generaly distrust strangers and from this point the last scene is a bit wierd

but at least something happend wink

Re: 2x08

That car crash is one of the dumbest things ever created in the history of television. XD

Re: 2x08

I don't know why I am still watching this? The script for this show is so bad.

This! And not just the crash itself but the whole reasoning behind the whole "I'ma go get me husband bye thx!" episode. So badly written that I literally facepalmed.

Leave. The Fucking. Farm. Already.

The end scene was decent and for the first time it showed, the don't trust anyone desperation the comic has going on.

I wish there were no zombies in it so I could drop it...

Re: 2x08

Actually the ending is also really bad. You casted Michael Raymond-James in your show, a fantastic actor to say the least, and you fucking kill him in 8 minutes of the show?!

Yeah I was also a bit disappointed to see him gone so soon. Maybe they were worried that he would have out acted everyone else in the show? big_smile

Now you made me miss Terriers. sad Maybe it should have had zombies in it as the level of writing plays no role...

Re: 2x08

And I made myself miss Terriers. And a fine point about the acting. smile

Re: 2x08

I still like it as I like the slow pace, mood, etc. BUT... gotta admit that whoever has the job to write Lori's part (because there's usually a team of half brains writing the whole thing) should get fired and flagged as the most idiotic writer in Hollywood and never find a job again.

SPOILER Show
The ONE apocalyptic world, the ONE car, ONE EMPTY road, the ONE moment in your ENTIRE shitty lifetime you never EVER lower your eyes... but still do it and manage to hit the ONE zombie who happened to cross that ONE road (and who probably himself had the decency to look left and right before doing so) and you hit it and goes boom in the scenary ?

I don't think so.

Overall, good episode (as far as I'm concerned obviously) except for this part where the writers just don't seem to know what to do with this character and throws at it the first stupid thing that comes to mind.

Myka : You slept with her didn't you ?
Pete : Well... you... you told me to investigate ok ? So... she's unarmed.

Even worse writing was how that whole scene was set up. Before Rick left to get  Hershel Lori moaned at him that he shouldn't leave because Carl needs him. And bear in mind that Rick wasn't leaving alone and they knew the way.  So after a little while mrs Skeletor gets upsett and decides to leave by herself without knowing where the fuck she's going. So I guess the wellbeing of her son wasn't that important after all? I'm willing to forgive such illogicalnes between 2 episodes, thinking maybe the writers just forgot, but this is just plain bad and not giving a shit. If you can't hold the writing logical for 10 fucking minutes you should just quit, period! Syfy original movies have better writing than that!

Re: 2x08

Meh. Nothing changed so far sad

Dale is bitching about Shane and how evil he is for the millionth time.
Lori is stupid.
No Zombies.
No story development.
Lori is stupid.
A farfetched moment where two random guys walk into a bar and take on three guys in a gunfight for no apparent reason.
One of the lamest plot devices in TV history, already described by Quinlan.
And not to forget. Lori is stupid.

Does she get killed in the comics? Is there any hope that this will happen in the show anytime soon?

Re: 2x08

In the comics she is not stupid. smile

Also I would like to say that if the rest of the season is about searching Lori I'm officially dropping this shit.

Re: 2x08

I love Lori in the comics. Hell, in the comic books everyone has at least one thing for which you can like or sympathize with him/her. But not here, no no no.

Re: 2x08

overall i thought it was a half decent episode, but the part with Lori.....? WTF!? first of you could see it comming loooong before it happend, and its so not logical and stupid and... stupid! she couldnt wait 5 minutes for Rick to return? I usually dont complain that much about tv shows, but that was truly:

...for some reason I keep watching...there's so much potential for TWD to be awesome...it seems like the writers would have to actually try to write this poorly...I mean, it'd be tough to write such garbage by accident. A show like this should really write itself, for goodness' sake...

...the premise of this vs. a show like Alcatraz...TWD has so much more potential! and yet they seem to want to do everything but capitalize on that...
It's the lack of potential that made it easy to drop Alcatraz...and with all that potential in TWD I just can't bring myself to stop watching it yet...even though it'll probably never materialize...

What he said.

Re: 2x08

I think the car crash was just a lame way "to get rid of" the baby, seriously.

Mark my words, the baby was the only thing that is keeping them in the farm (so that they give birth in a safe place)

No baby = No need to stay in the farm anymore.


BOOM shakalaka, so badly written this makes me vomit.
