1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Carl is the hero of the show, he's the Joffrey from Game of Thrones.

    Daryl's back! And everybody else. Good episode, I thought. It was nice to get a break from Rick and Carl.

    I was surprised to see that this season's ratings are higher than ever. As much as we bitch about the show's decline here (myself included), it's doing fantastically well.

    The show's just fine really, aside from stupid errors like new cars and cut grass.

    People go online and complain about the show's decline, but 1) still watching 2) still interested enough in it to go online and complain.

    That's such a tired excuse. Bad writing is bad writing. Plenty of comic books and cartoons have great writing.

    This. Whether the original source material is a graphic novel, a daily or weekly comic strip, a Shakespeare play, a B-movie, Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories, or a one-off SNL skit, the writing and execution of your show are independent of that source material.

    I like how the show has paired everyone off to do their own thing. And thankfully, the hot girl quota keeps going up. Every chick in the post-apocalypse is a solid 8/10 it seems

    It´s hard to escape zombies (even slow ones) when you´ve got a couple of extra pounds on you.

    You're a generous grader, although I agree with your general point that the apocalypse definitely brought the average up.

    Yea, girls are getting hotter. At first I didn't think it was ok for me to think that Beth was hot and has been hot this whole time, but then I found out that she's, like, 28 in real life. So it's all good.

    Great episode, I thought. I'm really liking the second half of this season.

    I thought it was really boring. I don't mind these slower type episodes, but Daryl and Beth have no chemistry. Lost did an "I never" scene once, but with two better, more charismatic actors:

    I like the Daryl character. I think it's safe to say we all kind of assumed he was a drifter before the apocalypse. But the fact that he finally revealed it really killed any mystery his character has now. I missed when the show tried to mislead us to think he was an undercover cop :laugh:
