I've seen a handfull of episodes when watching some kind of Helloween TV Special last year. Really enjoyed it. There's something about that zombie stuff I've always liked - think I'll try to get the DVD's...

Recommended. Season 1 is awesome, 2 still cool, but slows down a bit, Season 3 is thrilling!!!

I watch this series, too, but to be honest... I have some problems with it. The group we are watching is already so far... gone, they don't care about other humans anymore, even people who did them no harm. I think it was in episode 3x08 (8th episode of season 3) where they sacrificed this guy living alone in a wood cabin for no reason. And just last weekend (3x12, US-TV) they didn't pick up a desperate hitchhiker and by the end of the episode, as they were driving back, he's dead, ripped to pieces - and then they stop and pick up his backpack. So I can't root for these guys anymore, is the current enemy, "the governor", really any worse?

That last episode was also disappointing because the trip they made was back to the sheriff's home town. Apparently, in these three seasons they haven't gotten very far despite all the driving they did in season one. And if there is one thing I know about the zombie apocalypse is that you need a plan, a destination, safe from zombies and other humans. Just sticking around will only get you killed.

Agreed, the abandoned hitchhiker was sad to see, I guess it shows how priorities shift when under constant pressure. The same goes for the other group who made it into the prison - it looks like that eviction is going to backfire.
I was also surprised to see the home town show up again. If it wasn't far away surely Rick would have known the location of the prion before, being an officer of the law. Maybe their long journey has been circular?

Not bad at all, but as many of these series it´s infected of the sad dissease "timewasting". In many of them not much happens at all - appart from some arms and legg of zombies been cut of, should be added. I have a general feeling it could have been cut down quite drasticly.

Good point John, unfortunately, that would make it into a movie, not a series. :P




~Spoiler~

About the episode where they leave the hitchiker; I just watched it a few days ago, and even though it was harsh, I think it made sense. It shows just how hard they've become, and how scared they are of everything not known to be safe.
