I watched the first 20 minutes on Monday night and walked away cause i was so fed up. Then I finished last night.

That was the first time ever that I didn't watch the show beginning to end. It's definitely not a show that's top of mind anymore.

That episode was an editorial mess. My guess is that they came up with the B&W just to have semblance of coherence after the network saw it and gave their wtf notes. Gimple needs to stop reaching for the stars. He's just not that clever.

So now it's another slog until Nagin shows up and kills one of the leads.

Also, I would like to note the tremendous irony in criticizing the decision-making skills of fictional characters while giving up 45-60 minutes of your life watching a show for which you have nothing but contempt.
You shut your whore mouth!

I've watched and enjoyed TWD from the beginning (even season 2, or whichever season it was with the reduced budget that had them stuck on the farm), but I called it quits 20 minutes into the first episode of this season. The writing and direction felt entirely different than any of the previous seasons, like a second-rate TWD knock-off.

Which plan do our intrepid heros choose?

Of course you release them and drive them all right past where you are living. It's an airtight plan.

But that's the type of logic that we have become accustomed to. This episode was screwed up mostly by the fact that they expanded about 30 minutes of material into 90 minutes. Damn, that was a fluffed up mess.

I want to know WTF happened to these people's peripheral vision and hearing. There is no fucking way that a zombie could sneak up on you in the woods if you have normal powers of sight and hearing. And yet once again, BAM! Zombie appears out of nowhere and grabs somebody.

Same. I've been a loyal watcher since the very first episode four or so years ago.

I don't know if I'm just more cynical and less patient for BS as I get older, but goddamn, my tolerance for absurdity has become low.

This episode was just pure garbage. Instead of switching back and forth with the flashbacks, they should have just presented a linear storyline. But I get it. They needed to start the show with a bang by showing all the walkers. Unfortunately that didn't work out too well for them and ended up ruining the entire episode.

I liked the flashbacks ok. And the episode.

The plan was going so well until it didn't :/ Who blew the horn? Maybe that kid who hates Rick?

This happens with all shows. Who likes the 6th season better than the first 3 seasons of any series? Characters die and their replacements are never as interesting. The new episode gave very little time to anyone I enjoy watching. I don't care about the new characters.

The same thing happened with the sopranos. Richie and Ralph were never replaced, but their disposal was sort of necessary in order for them to be interesting in the first place, if that makes sense. Although I will say the introduction of Tony B was one of the best late series introductions of a character that I've seen.

I fucking love Carol.

AND SHE DIDNT EVEN BURN THE CASSEROLE

Seriously though. Great episode for me. Even if reaffirming how much I hate teenagers. And I didn't even want to kill Carl today.

It bothers me that Morgan arrived so fast after the horn started. Sure, Rick dispatched him after knifing the guy in the back of the head last episode, but Michonne was there too. Why is Morgan on the scene, and no one else? Something nefarious with the Wolves and Morgan.

Also reading that e-people think Enid is a spy for the Wolves.

Was it a casserole or a meatloaf?

EDIT - Oh, that's right, she was using dried pasta. So almost certainly a casserole of some kind.

She really is one of the best written and most interesting characters on television.

Agreed about Morgan. Not only got there but had what seemed like at least a couple of hours pretending to be David Carradine all over town and having that quickie with Carol in the pantry.

The episode did seem pretty erratic with chronology when it jumped between characters (I dunno, maybe they should try putting some of the scenes in black and white or something to help viewers keep it straight), so the "explanation" is probably either she was there but they weren't showing what she was up to, or more likely she got delayed or diverted by an incident they haven't showed yet.

Wolves or no wolves, Morgan's unwillingness to kill makes him dangerous. I could see Carol killing him at some point.
