On AMC, looks like Friday night, early saturday morning and then again right before the new episode Sunday Evening

Only one Zombie kill and it's a good'n.

Oh, the character stories were pretty good too. Some slow moments and a twist or two. They slightly got into a 'God' discussion. It could have been so much more, but it was just a small blip. Rick really didn't push it.

Still not getting the peaceful farm situation. The group mentioned Walkers straggling on, but it didn't go beyond that.

By the by, here's a behind the scenes look. I would suggest you not watch it until you've seen the episode.

It it kinda funny to watch the guy talk normal in a zombie suit.

Also comments posted here might have some relevance and spoilers.

I forgot all about the Move tag. I don't think I've ever seen anyone use it to the best effect as you have here. Props. Staying away from spoilers till I can watch last nights episode on...I guess this Friday.

Small spoiler coded in here...

Steven Yeun



Steven Yeun, who plays Glenn on AMC's The Walking Dead, explains the trouble with keeping secrets then dishes on his first on-screen sex scene...in this series at least.

Quote
Q: How has Season 2 been different from the first for you?

A: I think there was a learning curve. We kind of had the pressure trying to recreate the chemistry that everyone had from the very beginning, but we figured it out. And once we figured it out, we fell right back into our groove.

Q: You spent some time at the legendary Second City in Chicago. How has your experience at the comedy club helped you on The Walking Dead?

A: If anything it's the improv training that's helped. It's nice to take a step back from a script and think about how you would say something personally -- and then apply that. What's cool about the show is that it stretches me in ways that I wasn't stretched at Second City. On the show you kind of have to kill jokes. You can't play them too big or it breaks the reality of the situation. So they'll write a joke in the script, but you have to just drop it and put it on the ground and say it as realistically as possible.

Q: Do your former Second City cohorts approve of your move from comedy to horror?

A: If you work in Chicago in the improv scene, anyone is happy for you if you get a job. Doing anything. We're barely scraping by!

Q: You stated once that your parents were upset when you told them you were not going to be a doctor or lawyer. Have they come around yet?

A: Oh absolutely. They're now on full-throttle brag mode. They're Korean parents, and they just wanted me to have a structured, safe life and when I told them I wanted to do this they were worried that I'd be struggling. This industry is up and down, but right now they don't have to worry about me.

Q: Glenn has to get a "secret" product for Lori. Has anyone ever confided in you in a similar way? Are you good at keeping secrets?

A: People do confide in me! Those moments are terrifying because you have information and so much weight that doesn't have anything to do with you. I'm good at keeping secrets, but if it's not something super serious I usually tell people not to tell me because I'll tell someone else.
Spoiler (hover to show)

Q: Was it your first love scene on camera?

A: No it wasn't. But I don't really mind if people don't see the first one and count this as my first one.

Q: Tell me a little bit about the scene where they send Glenn into the well. Was that you lowered in there?


A: That day was crazy! It was a harness that they attached to a rope that was lowered down into a 25-foot actual well that they built. The harness couldn't be thick and padded because it would show so they used belt straps right around my groin area and my waist. After the first hour I was like "This isn't so bad." And then we shot for twelve more hours. By the last take, I was so tired and they were like "You gotta flip out here!" That was a tough day, really earning your paycheck.

Q: Do you appreciate that Glenn always seems to get sent on the toughest missions?

A: I think it's in his wheelhouse. There's a common theme of: "We don't know what to do, Glenn what do we do? Why don't you do it?" Glenn's not going to say no because I think he wants to be a martyr or hero. If he goes, he goes out in a blaze of glory; if he comes back then everybody loves him. But once romance happens you never know how you're going to reassess your priorities.

Q: Glenn can't play guitar, but we hear you can. Is it strange to pretend to pluck at an instrument you know so well?

A: Yeah man! In between takes I was playing it for real because I was like this is nonsense and I would purposely put it out of tune so I couldn't play it right. All I want to do is play it and jam out and have fun with it, but it's weird because I have to act like I can't. Hopefully it came off like I didn't play well instead of it being like cheesy remedial plucking.

Hahaha. I never thought a Zombie-In-The-Well episode could be so much fun. But it was. Everything from making Glenn go down in the well to wrangle him a Zombie, to pulling up said Zombie to having him split in half was good stuff. To punctuate the moment they had T-Dog go to down on the remaining Zombie still looking for a plaything to hang with. SPLAT!!!!!



Glenn gets his swerve on with Maggie, who by the way is the only chick on that show I would gladly get my swerve on with for sure. Yowza!!!!

Lori's got a thing for p*ssing in the dark. She's pregnant. No shock there. It's Shane's baby. Also not a shock. He's an assh*le. Still not a shock.

Chupacabra



The second half of my 2 episode marathon tonight was a whopper. Merle returns! Kinda. In a scene right out of Rocky IV, Daryl see's Mickey, who tells him to get up, cause there's one more round, only to wake up to find a Zombie gnawing on his boot. CHOMP! CHOMP! CHOMP! A lot of good sh*t went down, but it was the ending that left me literally shouting at the TV "what the fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck?!"

Seriously, what the f*ck man!!! At first, when I saw Maggie's response that Glenn was going out to the barn to get some midnight luvin' and she makes a beeline for the barn to stop him, in my mind I'm like "oh, they kidnapped Sofia and are keeping her for whatever reason and that's why they want Rick and the rest of them off their property ASAP". That's what I thought. But then they reveal that....

SPOILER*SPOILER*SPOILER*SPOILER*SPOILER*SPOILER*SPOILER*SPOILER*SPOILER*SPOILER*

FYI, the Rocky IV speech I just added because it goes well here. So cool your jets folks.

I had my suspicions about the whole farm thing. I didn’t even think about Sofia. But I think you kind of said it. The Family is keeping some walkers. Now who just might those walkers be? Hmmmmmm. Hershel displays to me such a God fearing well meaning character that even he would think God has reasons for members of his family becoming zombies.

The opening really had me confused at first. It took a little time trying to place the time of events. With all the cars jammed I was thinking this was where their van was, but there were way to many people. It was a cool sequence to see.
Glen knows way too much stuff about both troupes and this is going to get him in trouble, if not killed.

I let out a big ‘Oh Hell No’ when you realize a zombie was munching on the foot. Dayum.

Ol Daryl has a way of imagining things doesn’t he. Chupacabra… Merle.

I don’t know what to think of Shane’s character. Yea, he’s a scumbag, but if you were in that situation, those things he says make survival sense. Not emotional sense, but as he was pointing out, emotions can get you killed.

I am really liking the writing of the show. Excellent interactions between characters. All the scenario’s make sense. Nothing over the top, where it easily could go for a zombie show.

EDIT: I had to add the 1 in those tags, otherwise they disappear. When you use the tags, just don't put that number in there.
