If you have never seen this, do yourself a favor and watch it. It's one of the funniest shows going right now.

Season 3 will run a total of 16 episodes with three episodes expected to air starting September 15, 2011 as the finale to Season 2, with the remaining thirteen comprising season three to air in early 2012.

A Day In The Life

Well, it looks like Wordy is in fact gone from the team, replaced my new team member Raf (Clé Bennett). He seems interesting. But I still miss Wordy. As for this episode it was drastically different than any other in the series. Instead of just 1 crisis situation, there were 3 happening at once as the team races to neutralize each one. And in each situation we learn a little bit more about Raf.

I guess this was the sole purpose of the episode, but I would have preferred they did the whole hour with the 3rd and final situation as it was the most interesting and intense of the 3. The ending was pretty cool as it showed the team even more about Raf as he took center stage with his band to sing. The closing scene was a new one with the Hostage from the 3rd story comes to thank Greg Parker (Enrico Colantoni) personally and winds up with a date. Nice to see the series expanding into personal stories now.

The Demon Salutes

This episode is basically a "Thank You" to the Military as Gene and Shannon head to Fort Hood to entertain and talk with the troops and see them deployed as they head off to Iraq to serve their tours. I like episodes like this and Family Jewels has done a few like these before.

Episode 3: Tell It to the Frogs

I now get why there was some grumblings about the lack of Zombies in Season 1, at least in the first 3 episodes anyway. Personally it doesn't bother me because I enjoy the time it takes to build up characters and their relationships with the others. When you get to know them, it will ramp up the fear factor for them when they come into harms way when they inevitably come across Walkers.

As for this episode, I knew that by the time Rick and his posse, including Darryl went back for Merle, that he would have sawed off his hand to escape from the cuffs. I know Rick is a good guy and is willing to "do the right thing" in going back for him. But Merle is without any redeeming qualities to justify keeping him around when you know he is going to make trouble for the group that puts their lives in danger.

I never did like Shane from the very first scene he was in. And now I think he is a total douche bag for lying to Lori, telling her that Rick was dead, all so that he could get into her pants. But I did like it when the women fought back against Ed, culminating with Shane layingthe smack down on his candy ass. Taking out all that aggression of losing Lori, onto Ed's face is like a kick to the nuts.

So far, really digging the series.

Episode 2: Guts

Two episodes in and I'm digging the series. Guts is exactly what it sounds like. I was curious as to how Rick and the remaining survivors were going to get out of the Department Store. But not like THAT. Taking and Ax and hacking a corpse and then smearing Zombie guts is not something I wanna see again.

As soon as I heard the first inkling of thunder, I KNEW that the rain would come and wash off the stench, tipping the Zombies off that they were human.

Episode 1: Days Gone Bye

I am a HUGE fan of Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile) and really, he was the sole reason why I first got interested in checking out the episode. I wanted to see if there would be hallmark shots in the episode that would clearly be marked as "Darabont-esques'. There are a few noticeable shots.

As for Days Gone Bye, I thought they set it up perfectly by having Deputy Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) waking up in a hospital after being shot, during which time something infected and changed the majority of the Earth's population into "Walkers" (Zombies). We the viewer are kept in the dark along with Rick, which makes his confusion all the more real since we are in the same boat. Anytime you can get Lennie James (Jericho, Human Target) in your show, it's an automatic win. I hope to see more of him because they guy just exudes so much cool. Overall, this episode is nicely paced in spite of there really not being a whole lot of Walkers. That is till the very end. Nice cliffhanger with the voice in the radio mocking Rick inside of the Tank.

The Walking Dead (Season 2)

My first introduction to The Walking Dead was at last years Comic Con, where AMC had a booth set up to promote the series. I would say THAT was the most popular booth there. It was packed and it took awhile to get up near it to check out what was going on. From this, my interest in the show was pique and made sure to check it out. So, I got to watch the Pilot episode on the AMC website when it premiered. And that was it. They were not hosting any additional episodes online and since I don't really watch TV anymore, I was left pretty much in the dark.

I avoided all spoilers about the show knowing that one day I would pick up the DVD set. Well, that day is here. I will give a episode by episode review and see if the hype is warranted or if it's overrated.
