There is character development in season 2. For the most part,season 1 was just killin zombies. As a cynic, I look for the sublime message but I really don't believe there is one regarding who carries a gun.

The old guy loves the girl and doesn't want her to off herself.....It was set up well within the storyline. My theory is they will both off themselves just before they are eaten.


BTW, Pan, there was a sex scene in season one.

Thanks for the clarification. I haven't seen any of season 1 so I knew I came in without the benefit of the plot buildup. I may have to go find a season 1 DVD...

Okay.  And that's how much impression it made -- I didn't even recall it.

Definitely, if you're going to bother watching season 2, do a season 1 marathon and get up to speed. Just my .02¢.

It was an "in the dirt" quickie between Shane and what's her face, while they still thought Rick was dead.

I'm pretty sure that nowadays the preferred term is Ambulatory Deceased.

Three weeks ago I spent 4-5 days and on NetFlix I watched the entire Season 1.  I have seen nothing of Season 2 yet (though this morning I set up the DVR to record a couple shows on AMC this coming Sunday).

I quite enjoyed Season 1.  And being in the marathon type of viewing it was addictive and very enjoyable.  Sort of like Lost.  While in Baghdad, Iraq I watched Lost Seasons 1-5 (about 6 shows per day).  I did the same with Alias, Star Trek The Next Generation, Star Trek Voyager, Star Trek Deep Space Nine, Star Trek .... etc etc.  There were like 12 TV series I watched like that.. something to help keep the sanity while over there.

Anyway; I loved the show.  There were times when I was frustrated with things because I'd rather have seen the story or the character do something different.. but hey... if I want it different... I can write my own book and have it picked up and turned into a movie.  ::praying::

There are a different set of writers for season 2. Can't remember why, but I remember reading about it.

Anyone take in the b (maybe c) grade zombie movies playing on AMC until halloween? Pretty bad. I'm ashamed to say I've watched them..... ::hysterical::

I kinda like the modification of the zombies on TWD. They amble around aimlessly, just like they're supposed to. But they can move more quickly when aroused to feed. They don't really run, and they certainly don't sprint. They just pick it up a few notches and sorta speed-walk.

Even the "Supah-Shuffle" is slow enough to not require a whole lot of lateral target leading...I want to see tight groups when people pull triggers!

If you want to see zombies run, rent the movie Zombieland. ::hysterical::
