I had the same thought while watching that scene last night. That dude does it no justice though by not adding in slow motion, so I went ahead and did just that. Much better in my opinion.

The swamp around the farm is drying out. Any zombie that can smell the fresh meat of all the steer that got loose. Like a giant dinner bell at a free buffet.

Reading what dmlopr just said: yeah, they sorta covered their bases if you think about it.

Maybe that's what the "magic barrier" was: a perimeter of swampland the zombies couldn't travel through on the forested side of the property, and the formerly intact fence on the open side that Hershel's own cows were breaking through at various points. Seems like most of the time they encounterd a zombie in the woods, it was on the other side of water/mud.

(Not specifically directed at crunchb3rry. Didn't want him to think it was because of the timing of our posts...but we all know what the general tone of this thread is)

Yeah, I gotta say, if you're going to bitch and whine about the "plot holes", at least fucking pay attention. I'm tired of hearing about "convenient herds", "magical fences, and "gunshot zombie calls". Whether or not you deem it "plausible", the show has plainly stated or shown that:

A) Zombies do roam in herds. As road3283 mentioned, the first episode from this season shows that. If you don't accept it as "realistic", then explain to us how zombies "realistically" roam.

B) Fences have been mentioned/shown SEVERAL times this season. Last week's episode even had specific dialogue with Herschel stating "A dozen steer broke through the fence...been wrangling the runaways all morning." Before Dale is killed, he comes upon one of the steer. Gee...I wonder if the walker got in the same way the steer got out? Amazing! But yeah, don't let an explanation get in the way of your pissing and moaning.

C) In this very episode, Herschel and Maggie talk about the swamp hardening, the creek drying up, and having 50 head of cattle on the farm being like ringing a dinner bell for the zombies. This is even shown in the previous episode with the walker that Carl stumbles upon that is momentarily stuck in the mud. When those barriers are gone, the farm becomes much more vulnerable.

Acknowledge them or not, these are explanations that have been given for the things that are happening. The plot is by no means perfect. But anybody who doesn't have the attention span to pick up on these factors has no right to bitch about anything. That's like a person complaining that the judicial system is "stupid" because they aren't educated enough to understand how it works. You're just making yourself look ignorant.

what i dont care for is you really have no idea how much time has past between each show.. has it been a week a month. 6 months ect ect ect since they been on that farm.

Something tells me the are going to make a stand in the basement since they said they are going to be moving food and water down into the basement to last a few days in case something happens .. so you got to wonder if someone saw all of those zombies just walking around ...

ALSO whos gun did that kid take.. and i think i was someone who isnt part of the group cause if it was the one person why wouldnt he say..

who the hell took my gun and it always shows him with a crossbow ....

and wouldnt it look stupid to the group if if that outsider group is the ones that save them from the zombies in the opening of season 3.. ( i say it shows them locked in the basement at the end of season 2 )

It really didn't look like him to me either. But it was the clothes. It was like his clothes got zombified too, lol. They got all washed out like 80s jeans when they were darker before.

They occasionally just imply season changes. It was summer, then Rick says they need to start preparing for Winter, and last episode Shane's leading Randall off through the woods in Fall. It's been a couple months at least.

I really don't find too many plot holes in the show. The zombie horde thing is just a zombie horde is close by and heard it. Zombie herds have been in the comic and I think other more recent zombie literature (World War Z - I believe).

As for not being a lot of Zombies around, I think it is because they are in rural Georgia. I was out in South Dakota a year ago - would be a good place to get away. Towns of 500 people and then a hundred miles of nothing.

The only thing that kind of bothered me was the cutting of their hand with the knife. That just seems like a bad idea with all the risk of infection and lack of antibiotics. The second thing that seemed kind of funny was Shane was planning on killing Rick within eye sight of the farm house. Why not do it in the woods.

I feel a little bad that Shane's character got killed off. I thought they were opening it up for maybe some development with him. Rick and Randall saved him in the bus, Lori had a heart to heart kind of thing with him, Andrea was his buddy and taught her how to shoot, etc. Instead he just tries to kill Rick like the comic. I feel it was kind of a waste to develop him that much more and have him just go the same way as he did 5 minutes into the comic.

Randall had kind of a shitty existence going on. He gets impaled, almost killed by zombies and Shanes, helps save Shane only to get tortured in the barn and have his neck broken.

I kind of wish that Randall never told the rape story. It just being a different group made it seem so much better. Maybe they are just like Rick and his group, just equally desperate, etc. The two guys in the bar weren't much different than Rick. Rick begged and pleaded with Herschel to stay saying he couldn't go back out there, and when the other guy did the same thing Rick gave him the cold shoulder. The rape story just takes away from it for me.

Also like how T-dawg was like "Governor called and you got your pardon" or something when going to free Randall.

I don't think anyone has a problem with the magical zombie fence at least i know i don't. What i don't understand however is they make it always known to us that gunshots attract walkers yet they kill dale, nada happens, carl shoots shane = shit hits the fan!. Don't know how just not liking certain plot holes or bad scenes in need of a rewrite automatically translate to hating the show. If people really think that then perhaps their reading comprehension needs to be looked into.

Wow, so all momentum that I thought they were building from the last 2 episodes was completely crushed in this shitty McShitty episode. What the hell did I just watch.

I think it was crunchberry who talked about having to buy into the campiness of the show. This show is basically a C horror movie with a high budget but the same writers who think the creative process starts by getting wasted because thats how Hendrix used to do it.

Keeping with traditional the first 30 min were pretty pointless in every way including a yet another forced scene with blonde haired lady. I dont think there has ever been a actor who has had more screen time with less substance than her. Although she did say she thought that Rick should stop leaving which was pretty good.

Glen and Daryl so you track down a guy who is severely injured and may have a gun...you are carrying a long range crossbow yet you hide behind a tree until the thing jumps on Glen before doing anything. Waaaa? Then I couldnt help but laugh when Daryl announced that, "he died of a broken neck" Redneck medical school.

Which leads me to this....these zombies are taking the perk dead silence too the extreme. (see what I did there?) They are shuffling through the woods....yet they keep sneaking up on people like psycho mantis. Zombie folklore as taught me zombies in numbers with small spaces is the thing that is scary, not lone zombies in the middle of wide open fields. But I guess if they magically appear behind you with no sound that would be scary.

So this fence thing.....ok...fine they have a fence that keep out zombies for infinity, I can only imagine the dying breath of a solider at the government compound in the first season...."maybe....maybe we should have closed the fence." There would be a lot more humans around if a wooden fence is all you need to keep them at bay.

Carl just appearing out of field is embarrassing, added with the fact that a 10 year old who just the night before couldnt figure out how to kill a walker stuck in mud is now Captain Price and can curve a bullet around his father like that kid for WANTED. Lastly, I dont know why this show loves anticlimactic scenes. So you build up Shane and Rick this entire time just to judo stab him within 5 seconds? Lame. Lame. Lame.

I am looking forward to next weeks episode as it seems like shit is final hitting the fan and things are going to happen. Time to actually see the survival section of this post world story.

he took daryls gun ( hillbilly with a crossbow fetish) and yeah it kind of annoyed me too that of all people he wouldnt notice a gun missing especially if its his. that guy would make a decent ghost rider as well have him and the guy from supernatural jensen eckles be the riders.

i kinda dont like the zombie fence especially if that fence they were pulling on during the beginning of the show is the fence in question. that shit is short and youd assume any number of zombies could easily stumble over it but that said if the fence is far enough away from the main house a zombie may just walk on by and not pay it any mind.

but the cows and the shooting id assume there be plenty attracted to it since in the comics didnt they say a gunshot could be heard for a mile or so?
