I was trying to be nice, but I was too busy posting in the Entourage thread to ask what that show was all about it. I guess it's something to do with sports? No one's gotten back to me yet, but I am waiting for them to tell me if I should watch it or not.

Hey, what's the deal with all these CLOTHES you guys wear? Someone explain to me the significance of what people are calling a...neck tie? Did I say that right? Neck tie?

Anyway, I'll wait for your lengthy and thought out responses to my retarded question. kthxbai.



Trying to keep it on topic, I had skipped the middle part of this 2nd half of the season...I had had enough, but last night's episode was really good. The appearance of Michonne was bad ass.

I still hate certain quirks that just completely take me out of the "realism" of it...every one becoming a sharpshooter in MOVING BOUNCING VEHICLES is just RIDICULOUS. And why even bother to shoot them if you're in a moving vehicle that can drive away?? Makes no sense.

While I get the bad-assed appeal of a bald black chick who walks around with a sword and 2 armless zombies chained to her at all times, it comes a little like Mortal Kombat cosplayish.

I can almost forgive that. What I find a little hard to swallow are characters being chased by zombies, running into a barn and climbing to the loft then setting the barn on fire.  "Oh no, trapped! We'd better hope for a winnebago to drive by as we don't want to brave the 11' drop to the ground." 

 

On the plus side both the kid who was taking up space and the winnebago will never be seen again.

I'd say 9 out of 10 zombie films has this exact issue - they really can't seem to make zombie migration patterns appear realistic. (yes, I'm aware of how crazy that sounds).
Fantastic!


they werent migrating they were simply walking into the direction of the helicopter (sound seems top attract them as much as blood)and by the time they got to the river /mud it had dried up enough for them to cross it,pretty plausible

Hugely plausible that Happy Valley Farm with it's lights, car engines, gunfire and stink of people has managed to avoid random zombies, scavengers, scouting parties from other groups and general road travelers, yet somehow ended up on the path of a few hundred walkers who are following a helicopter they briefly glimpsed a few months earlier. 

 

I'll buy that for a dollar.

If the helicopter were to fly at walking speed, sure. Hell, if I were flying a helicopter in a world of very finite fuel supplies. no other air traffic, and ravenous zombies following me, my first thought would be "hey, no need to rush, we'll get there"
post #864 of 1954

let me explain my theory,i think they pick up a sound and just walk into that direction untill something else catches their attention,so they could have walked for days or even weeks even though the heli flew off long after.

did you see how they all looked up at the heli and just walked in a straight line till they heard the gunshot and changed direction.so basically what im saying is they walk in a straight line untill something else catches their attention...or i could be completely wrong,just a theory.

why not? its a show about zombies,hellooooooooooo

and they DID NOT avoid random zombies,there  were a few heading to it till they got stuck in the mud,i thought we already went over that lefty.

i know i'm being nitpicky here, but wouldn't the sound of an entire herd of groaning zombies (once the helo or gunshot or whatever else went away) kind of draw them into an immovable dense pack of zombie-age (i.e., they'd all be attracted to each other's sound)? kind of like that pacific ocean gyre of garbage that all settles in one spot?

i thought it was good... that chick in the hood threw me off a bit... she's just being careless/stupid with those zombies...

also, how is it that the zombies were focused on that helicopter for so long? if they didn't lose interest... wouldn't every walker they ever ran away from try to follow them?

T-dawg has more screen time. episode was pretty good. I see a correlation here.

i thought Herschel was going to bite the dust on the farm back there... pretty glad he made it out ok.

i see your point,well most of them got shot anyway.and maybe they still are following them,where ever they are ,unless something else caught their attention

Hopefully, all this bitching will go away come Season 3. But even with Michonne and the Governor cast, pretty sure all the nitpicky over-30 crowd will still be like, "Huh? She carries a sword? Isn't that a little inconvenient? Where's the REALISM?!?!" Then like, continue watching every episode anyway.
