Made some valid points, but don't agree with everything. Sounds like people still want to see a lot more Zombie mayhem all the time.

Better Angels



What the  f u c k ?! So now humans can just turn into Walkers without being bit? First Shane breaks Randall's neck only to have him pop up later as a Walker trying to eat Glenn and Darryl. And then later on Rick FINALLY kills Shane, only to have him turn into a Zombie himself. What am I missing here? What the  f u c k  is going on?! Even though this scenario with Shane was not in the book, since he died much earlier than what transpired on TV, I knew that Shane wasn't long for this world because there is absolutely NO WAY Rick would put up with this constant "Come on Shane, let's just talk this over" routine. Shane had to be put down. He was a cancer that was eating away at the group.

Now somebody explain to me about these phantom Walkers that just...come from outta nowhere. Somebody must have said something to the writers, or at least the cameraman because T-Dog was everywhere. He even **** a joke. What the  f u c k  is going on here?!

Okay, I had to do a little research to find out if I missed something and what I did find out is interesting. But it's just a theory and since I didn't read much of the book because I'm trying to stay spoiler free so I can watch it on TV, I give you the theory.....

Wow that was great. The Walking Dead has quickly become my X-Files of today. Walking Dead consistently delivers the unexpected with a reasonable explanation. Unlike Lost that just threw stuff against the wall and let's see what sticks and we can shock and awe the viewer.

Great story telling with major creepy moments not only from zombies but the human condition as well.

So we already have one cliff hanger. How are people becoming zombies when they don't have direct contact with them.

And I'm sure the finale next week will throw some more cliff hangers at us.

Beside the Dying Fire



That was a hell of a Season Finale. Now I can see why AMC was pinching pennies the entire season by having the bulk of it take place on the farm. The show runners splurged money-wise on the FX here, from blowing up the barn to all the Zombies, we got ourselves an E Ticket thrill ride. It was basically shooting 'fish-a-barrel'.

Two big cliffhangers at the end, the best being who "saves" Andrea. I'm gonna put this in a spoiler so as not to ruin it. This is just my personal guess because I haven't read beyond Volume 1 of the series and kow nothing that's coming.

Where did that come from?

Well, all is explained by Rick near the end of tonight's episode and what Dr. Edwin Jenner (Noah Emmerich) whispered into his ear in the Finale of Season 1, just before they blew up the CDC. Well, he told him that everyone is infected, but how or why is still a mystery.

By far the scariest and nail biting episode. It was a great climax to maybe just a tad to long stay on the farm. I think there was a balance here the creators pulled off nicely. They had to cut back on expenses but this opened up the drama of the humans. Really, if this was zombies all the time, we would see walking dead fade in interest to soon.

That being said, the sudden burst of massive amounts of zombies was unbalanced. I would think a trickle would have made more sense over the season with increasing danger hyping up the ante. That's just my opinion and I'm sticking to it.

A lot of close calls... uh, some didn't make it. The cliff hangers are nice and not WTF.

Next season sounds just as good if not better.

Bring it on.

I give props to whoever designed that as a DVD package. I won't buy it new but could end up getting it if it comes down 30 bucks or more.

I could only imagine that creeping the hell out of me sitting in a room. It is a pretty cool design.

‘The Walking Dead: The Complete Second Season’ Dated For Home Video!

Quote
The series Variety called “creepy from the first frame” gets a release on Blu-ray and DVD that will make the dead rise! Anchor Bay Entertainment proudly releases the AMC original series “The Walking Dead: The Complete Second Season” on August 28th, with an SRP of $69.99 for the Blu-ray, and $59.98 for the DVD. A truly unique and very limited edition zombie head case created and designed by McFarlane Toys will also be available as Blu-ray only for a SRP of $99.99. The 4-Disc sets will contain all 13 episodes of the second season and will be loaded with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, featurettes and audio commentaries.

“The Walking Dead: The Complete Second Season” is the much anticipated next chapter to the acclaimed post zombie apocalypse series. When we last left the “The Walking Dead,” the characters were in the midst of a high-intensity struggle to survive, fleeing the CDC as it burst into flames. In Season 2, they are still fighting zombies, and each other, facing more threats and obstacles than ever before.

Anything associated with the name McFarlane Toys is a GOOD thing. Best toys and collectibles on the market IMO, but I will still pass on the price point though.
