    i would love to see an episode or 2 showing how everything went down in Atlanta & globally when the outbreak started. I dont think we will ever get that though would be hard to show how a horde of walkers took out the military i still hope for a feature film that could incorporate pre series events showing characters during that time and how they met up that would be sweet!!!


    I hear crickets!!!


    What’s everybody’s take on first half of season? overall i thought it was solid glad to see the Gov demise even though i felt it should have been epically brutal he got off way to easy. The Walker makeups are setting the bar Nicotero & co own Zombies & I’m glad the show is still giving us the goods in the gore department.

      It’s pretty good so far. The 2 episodes following the Governor were a bit meh (as was his demise), but right now it seems to be making up for the atrocious second half of season 3, so I’m happy.

        No Sharky, you dumb fool. The episodes with the Governor were some of the best ones in seasons 3 and 4. The prison was getting boring as shit, and we were all glad they decided to focus on something else. I would LOVE it if they would focus on other groups or characters not with the main cast. It was in desperate need of a change and they did it.

        Now the Governor going out like a bitch? Yeah, that was incredibly underwhelming. He was the best character in the show and even had a bit of a character arch there at the end. That final episode was so, so bad. Needless boom boom for the sake of boom boom, the mud zombie and other things left me, hell, the whole house, disappointed.

        And can someone please murder Chris Hardwick and leave his body in a Burger King dumpster?

          I feel like every time someone says my name, it gets shorter…

          I also felt the prison was getting some pretty good use this season (at least in comparison to season 3). And sure, getting away from the prison was indeed a breath of fresh air, but making a 2-parter to try and make us care for the governor (by this point, a failed, over-the-top, invincible, predictable villain – plus he’s miscast) was never going to work, leaving that attempt at reinforcing the bad guy’s character arch rather tedious. Focusing on another group is what the announced spin-off series will be for, so I’m sure you’ll get what you want someday.

          I liked the boom boom episode; it’s what season 3 failed to deliver on before it milked the governor character to death. Plus, we’re moving on from the prison AND the boring governor – double win! (my computer background is actually the image of the governor being stabbed by Michonne and her trusty Katana. Never fails to remind me that all is good XD )
