How about Herschthal using the Unlimited Ammo code when holding off the farm. Nice touch. Over 40 shots without reloading.


I mentioned that as it was happening and was called a nitpicker as he obviously stopped to reload at the exact time I said something. People in the room completely disregarded the 90 previous shots fired sans reload.

Yup, and that's one of my biggest problems with the show. People react to things in ways that are ridiculous.

Like that kid they saved. Why did they think he had such a strong tie to his old group? I didn't get the impression that the kid gave two shits about what group he was with, he just didn't want to be alone. Did anyone even think about asking him that? No, they just assumed that he did and decided to torture and kill him. Who would really act like that? It's completely ridiculous and I don't get why this show has such a problem with that. The books didn't have that problem...


Exactly.

Also I use to hate on Andrea but ill be damn if she isn't the most useful female of the show.

Amazing how everyone was so quick to seemingly turn on Rick wtf?
Carol, really Carol? Can't trust Rick? WTF? I mean he only spent half the time on the farm along with Daryl looking for your stupid ass daughter (whom by the way would still be alive if she just would have listened to Rick in the first place) for weeks yet because he kept something secret for the good of the group, he somehow cant be trusted?

Idk but some of those scenes were like wtf?
Were they trying to get the audience to side with the group and be against Rick? Cause all it did was make me side with Rick even more.

Ugh, I dont even want to say anything because the sensitive folks in here but damn it...these people must have been the ones to show Mitt Romney how to Fuck up a sure thing.

I am not spoiler taging anything so dont read if you dont want it spoiled (I cant from where I am sending it)

The herd magically appearing explanation was borderline. Honesty? 200 zombies followed a heli 20 miles (apparently the world was completely silent the entire trip) and happened to be 10 ft away when they heard a gunshot? I will buy it because I want to buy it not because it makes that much sense.

Another thing, the "exciting part" was kinda meh to me for this reason and this reason alone. You either had people head shotting mofos like they were handing out aimbots with dinner or simply throwing themselves into zombies like the leaves of a freshly raked lawn. There was no in-between. Jimmy now owns the award for the pussiest of pussy-like deaths in any show ever. He headshotted 8 zombies and then stood up and walk into 5 of them, through a door he could of easily barricaded. And by barricaded I mean locked...and by locked I mean simply close the door...because it was apparently wide open. Then the one girl had 3 zombies just appear next to her and start eating.

Not really trying to rip it apart but come one...they were driving around headshotting zeds...with shotguns! At that point anything is a weapon...might as well be throwing those sharp cocktail toothpicks with your crazy aim. It took away a lot of the drama.

Plus, they didnt have the balls to kill of a real character. You set up this finale for the entire season and it result in the deaths of 2 people who have a combined 10 min of screen time for the season. Lori squeezes 10 min out of a 1 min scene on the regular.."WHERES MY SON....WHERES MY SON....HES NOT IN THE GARAGE!!! NOES!!!" As a black man...you have permission to kill T-Dawg, he is worthless.

The other thing, how did they "set up" the prison? Although I am super excited for them to get there I am not letting that blur what they did....panning to a computer generated prison for 5 seconds , there is a near limitless number of ways to set up the prison..that was the easiest and by far the laziest.

Michonne part was done well though...she doesnt need a long intro that was badass enough.

Oh yeah, that reminds me, Jimmy's death was completely retarded. Why not just wait for Rick and that little punk to jump on the top of the RV and then drive off? What the Fuck was he getting up for?! I thought that was what his plan was when he pulled up, and I thought "oh yeah, that's a pretty good idea." But no, I shouldn't give the show that much credit. Of course, he puts it in park and stands up to go outside for...??? I'm not sure. Did he think there was a party going on out there?

Stupid, stupid, stupid fucking show. What the hell is Krikman thinking? He can't be proud of this garbage.

Since there's no point in spoiler tagging if no one else doing on this page...

How about Herschel using the Unlimited Ammo code when holding off the farm. Nice touch. Over 40 shots without reloading.


+1. I'm glad someone else couldn't stop wondering when he was going to reload the damn thing. Also glad Sood called out Glenn's disciplined sniper aim with his shotty hanging outside the window of a moving vehicle. Comedy.

As a black man...you have permission to kill T-Dawg, he is worthless.


+2, 3, 4, and 5. He's making our race look worse every episode.

Also I use to hate on Andrea but ill be damn if she isn't the most useful female of the show.

Amazing how everyone was so quick to seemingly turn on Rick wtf? Were they trying to get the audience to side with the group and be against Rick? Cause all it did was make me side with Rick even more.


+6 and 7. After her struggle in the woods she gets a multiple future episode pass from me. She can be as bitchy as she wants to be. And Rick finally losing it and schooling those assholes on how's going to be from now on was the best part of the finale for me. I can't believe ANY of them still have the gall to judge him while lacking the balls to lead or leave and make their own way. Only two members that seem to respect him are Herschel and Darryl.

Oh yeah, that reminds me, Jimmy's death was completely retarded. Why not just wait for Rick and that little punk to jump on the top of the RV and then drive off? What the Fuck was he getting up for?!


+8. I thought the EXACT same thing. You hear the god damn impact on the roof and you drive the f*ck off into the sunset. It's that simple. I can't believe this is the same kid that was trading headshots with the rest of them a couple of scenes ago. >_>

 

Stop trying to Scooby-Doo this. We're not going to solve this mystery for you.

Next Season they really need to stop the whole Bam Zombie out of nowhere perk, not that i care about patricia that out of nowhere football tackle had me :lol:

Yeah, that's really lame. NOONE else saw that zombie as they ran past it. Also, why did they wait that long to leave when they were already overrun, I know Lori's being a pain in the ass about Carl (OK, it's her kid, I get it, but obviously he's gone from the house so why not leave too?) Plus Herschel's around the corner with only zombies coming from in front at a distance. The character/zombie placements were really off it seems. Maybe more came from a different side of the farm, but it wasn't clear at all.

Lori/carl need to die

This bitch had the nerve to get mad/shun rick for killing someone that tried to rape her and because their son put him down that he didnt even know was there. Fuck outta here Lori

To be fair she didn't know Rick didn't know zombieShane was behind him, BUT this is such a problem in tv/movie writing. Who the hell leads an admission with the end result. People tell the story and give their reasons before dropping the bombshell. According to Kirkman, she's really mad at herself not him, but it all played out poorly.

My thoughts exactly. I was really hoping she'd bite it in those last 10 minutes. I seriously cant stand her. Carl also being a pussy and crying when Rick said he killed Shane irritated me too. There's no way in hell they can follow the comics because this kid is way too much of a sissy to play the Carl portrayed in the comics.

I'm not a big fan of the actor, but he's playing a CHILD, not a teenage psychotic. He seems to be maybe about ten years old, the actor is twelve. Shane has been in his life since the beginning, stepped in as a father figure when his own dad went missing and he just found out that very dad was the one who killed him and he has no idea of what was going on and why it had to happen. I hear demented stuff happens in the jail so maybe that's what pushes Carl over, although they really should have started with him being a little older.

Yup, and that's one of my biggest problems with the show. People react to things in ways that are ridiculous.

Like that kid they saved. Why did they think he had such a strong tie to his old group? I didn't get the impression that the kid gave two shits about what group he was with, he just didn't want to be alone. Did anyone even think about asking him that? No, they just assumed that he did and decided to torture and kill him. Who would really act like that? It's completely ridiculous and I don't get why this show has such a problem with that. The books didn't have that problem...

I thought the same thing about Randall, but I can see how paranoia and survival could cloud your thinking, but what if they treated him nice, got to know him while he healed and see? I mean how much loyalty could he have to the group that left him to die?

How about Herschthal using the Unlimited Ammo code when holding off the farm. Nice touch. Over 40 shots without reloading.

That was ridiculous. He fired too many shots every time he was on camera, even assuming he had freshly reloaded while off camera, but that's all too common in tv and movies, too. I thought he was gonna bite it on the reload as I figured he'd go down swinging, but the creators really like his character and wanted to keep him going for a while. He was originally supposed to be killed by an escaped Randall until a last minute rewrite. Also, Jimmy, not a cow, originally was going to be found by Dale.

Amazing how everyone was so quick to seemingly turn on Rick wtf?
Carol, really Carol? Can't trust Rick? WTF? I mean he only spent half the time on the farm along with Daryl looking for your stupid ass daughter (whom by the way would still be alive if she just would have listened to Rick in the first place) for weeks yet because he kept something secret for the good of the group, he somehow cant be trusted?

People sure turned too fast, I mean I know they want to find a safe place to hole up, but sitting there with no gas what are they to do? And once again Rick's unveiling of Jenner's reveal was typical tv writing crap. Why not lead with "I didn't want to scare people unnecessarily cause Jenner was batshit crazy, but he told me ... and I wanted to be sure first." And on the Carol thing while I agree with you, she blamed Rick for her daughter getting lost because he left her alone.

...
The herd magically appearing explanation was borderline. Honesty? 200 zombies followed a heli 20 miles (apparently the world was completely silent the entire trip) and happened to be 10 ft away when they heard a gunshot? I will buy it because I want to buy it not because it makes that much sense.

Although I am super excited for them to get there I am not letting that blur what they did....panning to a computer generated prison for 5 seconds , there is a near limitless number of ways to set up the prison..that was the easiest and by far the laziest.

At least they explained the herd. It's a pretty big stretch, although I don't know how many distractions you really think there would be on the way there and they were more like 900 feet away, but my question is would they not lose interest eventually. They had to have walked for several days on a mission.

Jimmy's death was pretty lame. It was one of those flimsy ass folding doors that doesn't really lock and hence is a big problem, but why did he walk back there? I thought he'd stop, they'd jump on and bang the roof and say let's go and he'd drive off, not jump up and stand by the door waiting to get eaten.

The marksmanship of these people is truly earned. Remember when they were target practicing and everyone complained, well it prepared them for this. Seriously, WTF??? Constant headshots from moving vehicles ON FARMLAND, that shit's not smooth in the slightest. It would be constant bumps making any kind of shot impossible. The plan sucked ass from the get go, but they should have pulled up at a decent distance, got out and shot standing from the door until zombies got closer, get in, back up and do it again. Driving back and forth was ridiculous. Also, judging by the holes left behind, the shotties seem to be loaded with slugs and not buckshot so precise headshots from a fair distance would be much more possible, just not like that.

I still like the episode a lot, but some of the little flaws and tv writing moments just irk me.

I hear demented stuff happens in the jail so maybe that's what pushes Carl over, although they really should have started with him being a little older.


He's a child in the comic as well. Him being a child doesn't mean he has to be this idiot that runs off on his own and cries to his mommy because his father chose to defend himself against another man who was trying to kill him. He's also a whiner. When he jumped out of the car tonight and immediately said "I'm freezing", it made me hate his character 100x more.

Like I said, in the comic he's a child, but he's mature and comes across as someone who understands the current situation. On the show he's just a dork.

the whole 'this will no longer be a democracy' statement is what really got me. Made me want to start spending $10 for volumes of the comic books on the Android Market to read. I can't imagine Rick being a dick ;) Show was damn great, one of the best just due to the sheer magnitude of zombies. I really didn't care about every shot (even from cars doing donuts) being a headshot b/c a) its a tv show and b) I'm sure we all would wish we could shoot like that if the apocalypse ever did come..

Everything about it, the end scene, Michonne, has me so intrigued, I can't wait for the next season and I will probably spend a majority of my day wikipedia-ing the hell outta what some of this stuff means/is..

My friends and I were thinking as soon as he stops to reload he is going to get overtaken... but he kept on firing. Then it cuts to like a close-up of him and we were like, okay - he's done now; and he starting getting RIDICULOUS firing off shot after shot. We were all cracking up at that point.

I'll have to rewatch it and count the number of shots actually fired.

I saw him reload at least once. It was when Lori started firing shots on the porch. You see him pull some rounds out of his pocket.

That was after the onslaught of shots, and he put 2-3 shells in. I'm not saying he didn't reload once, I'm saying he got off a lot more shots than ANY shotgun in existence would be able to fire in a row.

I see some of you guys will continue to watch the show despite hating it. Not much changed in this thread.

I marked out hard when Michonne showed up, and again at the end with the prison, the two things I wanted to see most from the comic. I was laughing my ass off with my roommate when I noticed that Herschel never once reloaded his shotgun. Andrea gained 1000 badass points this episode fending for herself for however many hours and picking of a few walkers a long the way.

Lori is still a bitch. Why the Fuck are you upset about your husband killing the guy who's threatened the group, attempted to kill your husband and, oh, TRIED TO RAPE YOU? Also, your son wouldn't have had to put Shane down if you had kept en eye on him and made sure he didn't wander off for the umpteenth fucking time.

I loved Rick pretty much saying that he was tired of everyone not trusting him after everything he's done. I can totally understand Rick not wanting to tell everyone they're all infected. How do you tell someone no matter how they die they're gonna turn into a mindless flesh-eating wallking corpse? Morality would nosedive right through the floor.

I can't wait for season 3.

I have to be the one that least complains about this show. I watch it each and every week and enjoy the whole episode, regardless of what goes on. Sure, Lori is retarded, but I don't necessarily want them to kill her off, at least not yet. Andrea was a dumb bitch as well, but I gained some respect for her after the finale. I was laughing at Herschel's infinite ammo and the ridiculous headshots, but I can overlook those things. I'm not one to analyze every second of the show and then go on a rant about only to continue watching it the very next week. I sit back, relax, and enjoy the show for what it is.

I thought that was what his plan was when he pulled up, and I thought "oh yeah, that's a pretty good idea." But no, I shouldn't give the show that much credit. Of course, he puts it in park and stands up to go outside for...??? I'm not sure. Did he think there was a party going on out there?

Stupid, stupid, stupid fucking show. What the hell is Krikman thinking? He can't be proud of this garbage.


maybe they forced the door open somehow that is why he got up to try to close the door ?

The fire from the barn should have spread to the RV at some point. We see the barn burn down; but as close as it was parked to the barn, it would have ignited at some point and there would have been some gasoline in there. They missed that.

Lol...the thing that gets me the most: didn't Lori try to manipulate Rick into killing Shane anyway? That lady is a total potatohead.

And Rick not telling them all about what Jenner said makes sense. They just had Hershel's daughter try to off herself, so if he tells them all they're infected it would just turn into Jonestown. Carol's right though: Daryl should be leading the group.
