A video game serial of the walking dead. 5 seasons with a season released each month.

Sounds interesting not sure how good it will be though Robert Kirkman is involved

Slightly disappointed with the way the Governor looks in that pic, I just hope they leave his character as depraved.

Merle for sure.

I had a thought that Merle would return in The Governors camp and would

Fuck - Season 3 looks pretty good. I gave up after about the 4th episode of looking for the lost girl in S2, maybe I should get back into it.

Finally got into this (DayZ made me do it), watched both seasons back to back. I didn't rate it that highly as I watched through tbh. Put a bunch of Americans (of perfect diversity) in a road/survival situation and this is what you get; there is nothing really challenging here. Nothing wrong with it, just nothing particularly new about it. I don't feel like the dialogue or character development has been particularly masterful. Often it just feels like a soap opera with a zombie theme.

But, there are moments every couple of episodes that have real power. I was getting pretty sick of the
Spoiler:
Sophia melodrama
but the way it was resolved, even if you might have seen it coming, was gut wrenching. They really manage to pull out some powerful scenes now and then. It's just a shame the filler isn't as compelling as it could be.

Obviously the s2 finale means I have to keep watching.

hey guys im just guessing out loud here, but just the zombie physics of it all? How long can they last without food I wonder? surely some of them would be dying* off soon?

@ Gruso.. Yeah its one of those shows where there is so much potential and some of the episodes are fantastic but then sometimes you ask yourself why you are watching it. I reckon it got better and better though throughout apart from the very end ( I didnt like the last ep at all).

Season three sets up to be really good going off the little info I have heard about the comics.

I can't believe how quickly Shane was killed in the books compared to how long they kept him hanging around in the TV show

That, and the annoying bitch Lori was what makes the show average, when it could have been awesome. Good to hear it's going to get better next season.

Are you talking about the novels or the graphic novels (comics)? I just finished volume 2 of the graphic novels and it more or less goes straight from farm to prision much like the show just did...what's missing?

I thought it was pretty silly how Season 2 ended panning out and showing the prison in the background,
Spoiler:
come back to Season 3 and they're moving house to house raiding what they can, lots of things implied about how they've been on the move constantly (talk about the various packs of walkers potentially meeting up), stop at random spot on the road, "lets hunt" and NOW the find the prison?!?! Bit dumb.

Just a few of the small things:

Spoiler:
Nothing major, thinking they found piece at the Housing Estate, only for Rick to find out 'All Dead Inside' they could've introduced Tyrese (even though that could be T-Dog, and if it is, dude has a lot of work to do )

Funny that T-Bone still barely has any actual dialogue Best job in Hollywood by far.

Quality episode for sure.

Spoiler:
My first thought when Hershel got bitten was "fuck these writers" why the good characters always gotta get owned.

I hope that Lorrie bitch dies in childbirth.

Just finished season 2 last night...
Spoiler:
When did everyone get gay?

Why is Karl not dead?

Why is he still wearing that stupid hat?

Why does no one belt the shit out of him for constantly running off... last episode... middle of the night... middle of a zombie apocolypse... this kid just takes off "to find his Dad". Tigger please - that kid needs a smack on the bum!

Also when they figure out that the virus is spreading not only through being bitten and some dumb shit asks "BUT HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?" oh yeah - because Zombies I can totally get my head around... but the fact that the virus is being spread by someother means *mindasplode*
Anyway, enough hating from me... season 3 better find a cure of all these feelings people have caught!
