Watched season 2 of The Walking Dead yesterday. I had sort of given up on it after season 1, but talk on another forum made me give it another chance and it has improved. Though, if you've read the comic, it's very odd that a certain character gets killed off when he does. And whether you've read the comic or not, it's very annoying that Lori keeps not getting eaten.
@Ravelle - It's an adaptation!
As I wrote last season, TWD is a programme that in the past has always promised so much, before ultimately disappointing. Every season premiere has been pretty great and left me optimistic, only for the season to be consumed with poorly written soap-opera filler.
I think that might be why they're splitting the camps this year, they can keep a more sustained tension when there's two seperate scenarios/ sets of characters with their own dilemmas, obviously that brings its own challenge in retaining audience interest (if the Michonne/Laurie/Governor story is weak, it could destroy the season essentially).
Having said that, I've enjoyed the first two episodes and against my better judgment, I've once more got high hopes for the rest of the series!
Only thing i have too look for is David Morrissey as Governor. He's a far better actor (and hotter) than the rest of the cast put together.
Watching Generation Kill for the 1293192th time.
Watching Breaking Bad, just started season 3. This series just keeps getting darker and darker.
More Red Dwarf. In my opinion episode 4 ties with episode 1 for the best in season X so far. The older episode right afterwards tops the evening up quite nicely too, right now Mr Flibbles is on.
Not really. They make a good point of explaining everything you need to know when it's relevant to do so. I suppose the only thing that'll help is that it's set in a future on a mining ship with the last remaining human, a hologram of his room-mate who was killed in a mistake that killed the entire crew (apart from the aforementioned human who survived due to being in stasis), a human-cat, descendant of the actual cat that the human had on board at the time (3,000,000 years has passed since the accident) and a droid they picked up along the way. Hilarity ensues.
I thought tonight's episode was equal with the first. Lots of guffaws and a few out-right laughs. All-in-all, the season has been ok so far. It's not been bad like 7 and 8, but it hasn't really been as consistently high as the older stuff, a fact they rub in by putting a load of old Red Dwarf on after the new episodes and yes, Mr. Flibble is very cross. Very cross indeed.
I've seen loose episodes of the the older series though, years back but was just wondering if they followed up the story.
Theres no continuity really as in all sitcoms you can pretty much go in on any season and pick it up, but I do recommend seeing some of the early seasons they are really good.
I think seasons 5 and 6 are the best. In the earlier seasons the jokes seem like they're few and far between.
Just saw that Walking Dead Season 3 episode 2 you guys were talking about. I can't believe Rick killed that guy. I half expected him to stretch out that simple chore for a full season, but after Shane it's like he finally learned something and ends the threat right away.
And realistic development at that.
[Spoiler]At least provided he now doesn't go FULL MANIAC, which I doubt as it'd make him tough to empathise with. Even in the case of that guy he clearly had misgivings but was prepared to give him a chance. I half-expected him to let him off so I was quite pleased when he offed him.[/spoiler]
Of course the black dude is still muddling along being as anonymous as possible.
I just started to watch 'Last Resort', a very promising series.
