I liked Action Glen in this last episode. Absolutely can't stand the Psycho Girl(s). Carol was nice to see again, I guess, but since she's just going to be making bad decisions I'm not looking forward to them.

Could Judith eat peeled and smooshed grapes and berries at this point?

I'm still trying to understand a baby in a zombie world. Unless you had a mother nursing it, access to massive formula/diapers or I dunno kept a goat to milk, how does it work? I guess technically the baby would only need formula/milk for 6 months and then move to smooshy foods but where do they find smooshy food?

You would have to be in a compound like structure with the mother still alive. That's the only thing I can figure out.

But yah, random baby bottles is just a bit off.

They had baby stuff from supply runs. Several mentions last season of getting formula, how much formula they had left, etc. Having it all with them as they escaped the prison is another matter of course. At any rate, baby Judith is looking old enough to start eating soft foods.

The scene with Tyreese changing Judith's diaper in the zombie-infested woods was hilarious. Way before they run out of formula they'd run out of diapers, and then baby clothes, and then rags. Better to let her go without pants and just let it fly. Diaper rash would be a pretty serious problem in that environment.

I liked most of the rest of the episode. Body armor Glenn was great. The relief on Tyreese's face when Carol appeared was palpable. Loved the introduction of Duke Nukem and his posse at the end. Seems like as the series goes on the walkers become less and less consistent however. Sometimes they're an unstoppable force, sometimes they're dispatched without effort. They're whatever the plot requires.

And 2) The bus. How did all those people die and get trapped? That really didn't make any sense at all. I'm not one to usually nitpick this show, but come on - that seemed like very lazy writing. Not enough to make me dislike the overall episode, but still... it was a glaring blemish on an otherwise awesome episode.

That one seemed plausible to me.. The Governors troop shot up the bus as it was leaving the prison. People died and then turned and got the upper hand quickly on the rest of the passengers.

Well at least this thread seems happier than with the prison arc , not that many complaints , i think the writing is a little bit better now

Just caught up with eps 9 and 10. Really liked them both.

I especially loved the Michonne dream sequence. That's something used to great effect in The Sopranos. It's very dramatic as it's a rapid change of pace which really pulls the rug from under you. The bit where she puts the katana in the knife block tells you it's not really happening... Then it's a sad waiting game until she wakes up and it's over. And a stoic silent character like Michonne isn't going to blab all that out to someone so it makes sense to reveal it to us this way.

And wow! So much peril in that last ep. The parts where we see Judith is still alive and we think Maggie might have killed Glen really worked for me (no spoilers or previews for me - I leave well alone).

Kewl.

Agreed, and it will be very interesting what they do, or how far they go with Lizzie as she damn near smothered Judith. I wonder if Carol caught her doing that?

I've followed since near the beginning, but now we have another group of people that are either A) coming into the mix with good intentions that end up causing some sort of peril B) coming into the mix with seemingly bad intentions that are somehow misjudged and prove to be decent folks C) in 'possession' of some knowledge that can help our group in the long run which is highly guarded and causes a fall out. It's becoming very redundant. After watching HBO'S True detective, which imo is brilliant, I can't help but want more out the shows I spend my time watching.

Is it just me, or is an outgoing Michonne making somebody else here uncomfortable. It seems like she's finally come to terms with the loss of her family, Andrea, and the whole prison fiasco. If that's the case, then good for her. However, maybe she's ready to snap, and her giddiness is that of a madwoman.

I don't know that her character was ever that stoic, I think her introduction was a mistake of over zealous under personality.

I think it's best to remember that with Carl she has always let her guard down. Not as much as she is now, but she was often quick to smile, and joke with him after they bonded over the family picture and cat statue.



I see this more as Michonne and Carl thing, and not what she will be like with everyone. If she is like this with everyone else, it will be, odd to say the least.



ETA: I don't know about more, but they seem longer.

I entered in The Walking Dead Fantasy Sweeps, and while perusing the rules, I found this tidbit interesting.






5. RANDOM DRAWING: On or about the Wednesday following the conclusion of each Entry Period one (1) Grand Prize Winner will be selected in a random drawing from all eligible entries received during that Entry Period for a total of seven (7) Grand Prize Winners. The drawing will be conducted by an independent judging organization, whose decisions are final on all matters relating to the sweepstakes. All Grand Prizes Winners will be notified by phone and/or mail on or about April 4, 2014 and will be required to complete and return an Affidavit of Eligibility/Release of Liability which must be signed and received by Sponsor or its designated agent within 14 days of date printed on notification or an alternate winner will be selected in a random drawing. If Canadian, potential winner will be required to correctly complete a mathematical skill testing question administered by e-mail. If any prize notification letter or any prize is returned as undeliverable, the prize will be awarded to an alternate winner selected in a random drawing.


I know this doesn't have to do with tonight's episode, but I had to share this. Why would a Canadian have to complete a math quiz? I found that interesting. Sorry about the text color, I couldn't switch it. Also, the words were Stick Together for tonight's episode.

It's about gambling outside of a casino. For example if we buy a scratch and win, there are math questions on the back to answer. Pretty much you can't profit from gaming, betting, and so on. By answering a math question it turns into a contest of skill in name, although of course not really.

I don't think Eugene is a scientist.

No M'am... he is definately a scientist... I know 2 scientists, and they both have mullets just like that.

The "Talking Dead" poll asks what the most terrifying thing about the episode was. If Eugene's mullet does not win...
