Nebraska



















There were some good moments here: Daryl calling Lori on her sh*t, Lori's car crash and Rick's "shoot-out" at the Bar. Other than these little moments, the episode as a whole was pretty flat and didn't offer much for me. I guess I really shouldn't have built up the episode after such a long wait from the last one. I'm hopeful that the new episode tonight will up the ante and go somewhere, especially with Lori now missing, due to the crash. And my guess is that the "Others" will come looking for those two dudes laying dead in the bar and figure out that it was Human's and not Walkers that killed them.

Now THAT was an awesome episode and exactly what I was expecting with the last one. This one was thick with tension that you could cut with a knife. The kid-stuck-on-the-fence sequence was f ucking gnarly. I figured Rick was just gonna unload on him and get the hell outta there. So when he ripped his leg off the fence I was "what the hell"! At the end of the episode I was literally going "it's about f ucking time everyone realized what nut job Shane is". Shane can see the writing on the wall and will try to divide the group in half and has already started blowing smoke up Andrea ass to win her over to his side. So gullible.

No ScreenCaps for this since the episode won't be hosted online for me to grab. The Nebraska episode was a one-time-only deal. Ugh.

18 Miles Out



Now THAT was a kick ass episode. So much  s h i t  going down that I couldn't catch my breath fast enough. In one corner you have Rick and Shane FINALLY throwing down, kicking each other asses and in the other corner you have Lori and Andrea laying down the law of who has the right to say and do what with regards to their own lives. This was pretty intense watching the group of survivors coming apart at the seams. You have Randall begging for his life and it comes down to Rick and Shane as judge, jury and executioner. And you have Beth who wants to end her life with Lori, Andrea and Maggie trying to make their choices known. A lot to play with when it comes to morality and who is right or wrong. One of the best episodes ever for TWD.

Couldn't agree more. One of THE best episodes yet. I think many folks were expecting this kind of thing in every episode. Loved everything about it. I admittedly did get a tad frustrated at first when the zombie action got intense, they would flip over to what was happening at the farm. Vastly different scenes. Then back to zombie town, then back to the farm. After awhile I got use to it. The s hit did come down all over the place. Beth wanting to end her life and how the others perceived it was nicely understated but still a huge deal. I often go back to think... what would I do.

What was fascinating about this particular episode was that both Lori and Andrea were calling each other out on their  s h i t. They are both kind of delusional in what they are bringing to the group. Even though what they are doing irritates the hell out of me, I can give them a pass because it's their way of coping with the New World Order. The thing I don't like about Lori is that she thinks the rules don't apply to her and the thing I don't like about Andrea is she is morphing into a female version of Shane.

Shane's actions are difficult to quantify. On one hand you have a survivalist, on the other, he will do whatever he feels necessary to survive, including stabbing you literally in the back. If Andrea can balance upping her survival skill vs. her emotional state, she will live on.

The again, is that what you want to do. Fight walkers everyday of your life? *see 'Beth's character

If it were all about surviving, then I guess I could get on board with Shane. But when you look at his motives, he is killing for the sake of killing because he is  p i s s e d  that he doesn't have Lori or Carl and that Rick "has it all". He is taking out his anger and frustration on Walkers or regular, non-infected people because he can't get what he wants and then uses the "I'm surviving...kill or be killed" excuse to justify what he is doing. That's how I have always viewed his motivations. Now, someone else can watch the same thing I'm seeing and come away from it completely different.

Carl, quit trying to get yourself killed.

Rick to Carl: Don't talk. Think.

Judge, Jury, Executioner



What the  f u c k ! You know what's interesting and probably the biggest bone of contention with fans of the show is that all of Season 2 has basically stayed in one location the entire time. And yet people complain about this. Are they even watching the show? This is some of the most compelling TV viewing I have ever seen and it has been unbelievably good. It's not even a show about killing Walkers anymore, but about humans turning on each other. I knew that Rick wouldn't be able to go forward with killing Randall, but I had a bad feeling about what was going to happen next. There was doom hanging in the air and as soon as I saw Dale walking out onto the field, I knew he was going to be attacked by 'The Creek Walker'. I've seen this before. Saving Private Ryan, anyone?

But the way he was torn apart took me by surprise. I was expecting a 'chomp, chomp, chomp' moment. Not a 'Riiiiiiiiiiiiip' moment. Poor Dale. I knew that Darryl would be the one to step up and put Dale out of his misery. Even though he put Sofia out of her misery, I just don't think Rick has what it takes to kill other humans.

Best. Episode. Ever....

....in spite of Rick's bon mot to Carl: Don't talk. Think.

I think this episode was great for it's human drama, morality and the human condition. Very little Zombie stuff, but when it was there, very suspenseful.

I knew about a major character getting killed. I just didn't know who or how. I didn't want to know that and didn't want to pass that on to spoil things.

In retrospective, it surprising yet inevitable.

Now that the clear voice of reason is gone, what now? How does this group stay glued together? Honestly.

T-Dog (IronE Singleton) will pick up where Dale left off. He has a big mouth and likes to talk a lot. Oh wait, is he even on the show? Seriously, why is he even on the show? The writers have done absolutely NOTHING with him. I feel bad for IronE. Think about it, lesser characters get more screen time than he does who is considered part of the original cast. Either write something substantial for him or kill him off, but just don't have him standing in the background every single episode.

Funny you mention that. I honestly have completely forgotten about him until everyone was standing in the room with the vote. His character is definitely cool. I do wonder what happened behind the scenes here.

Q&A - IronE Singleton (T-Dog)

Quote
IronE Singleton (a.k.a. T-Dog on AMC's The Walking Dead) talks about some challenging moments on set this season and explains which character he'd most like to see again.

Q: How is Season 2 different from Season 1 for you?


A: The first thing that comes to mind is our camaraderie. First season, a lot of it took place in town, obviously, and the cast was a bit segregated between those in town and those at the camp. Everybody is there together this season and that right there has brought us a lot closer as a group.

Q: Is there anything you miss about the "town" group?

A: Merle... If Merle returns... that would make for some epic stuff -- some serious drama I think people would be talking about for a long time.

Q: What was the most challenging thing you had to do this season?

A: The show is so physically demanding. I would have to say the scene we did with the well walker. We had to catch the water pump from falling in the well -- we had to do that so many times. And I was on my backside and I had to kick and claw. The water pump was fake -- but it was quite demanding and really tough because we did it over and over again. By the end of the day, I was exhausted -- it was scorching hot too.

Q: I understand you do a lot of charity work in Atlanta.

A: As much as I can, though not quite as much these days because I've been staying so busy. But normally, it's my relatives. My lineage is out of poverty. A lot of my relatives -- cousins, nieces and nephews -- are in that situation. There's so much depression and poverty within my own family, so I spend a lot of my time with them.

Q: Have you inspired anyone in your family to act? What does your family think of T-Dog?

A: It seems like everybody in my family wants to act now! A lot of friends and family and associates have been coming to me. About T-Dog, they give me some criticism -- some may be a little harsh, like "Yeah you look a little fat on screen!" [Laughs]. But I have a 14-year-old, an 11-year-old and an 8-year-old, and none of them are allowed to watch. We gave my 14-year-old the opportunity and she said no.

Q: I read an article that said you were most famous for your role in The Blind Side. Has that changed since you've been on The Walking Dead?

A: Oh yeah. Now I'm getting more people that recognize me for The Walking Dead. The cat is out the bag -- what can I say?

Q: This season we found out T-Dog is short for Theodore Douglas. Do you have any other nicknames besides IronE?

A: My wife calls me Rob, or Sing-y. I had a name when I was five or six, my mom called me "Ton." I call my son that now. It reminds me of my days when I still had my innocence. I was four or five and I hadn't really been exposed to a lot. After that a lot of my innocence was stripped away, but I'll never forget that that was the most innocent stage in my life.

Sadly, this is probably the most press he will get this season.
