    The Walking Dead Season 2 - grrrr's

    Is it just me or do the "veteran" zombie killers from season 1 seem to be getting dumberer and dumberer!
    we seem to have established these zombies are attracted to sounds and the sight of humans, not smell or the blood or anything else. so when the rambling horde approach them on a blocked highway, they hide under cars....because zombies NEVER fall over and might see them.
    why not, instead, get in the hundreds of cars littered about and just sit there motionless with the windows up?

    secondly, the deputy sheriff (can't remember his name atm) is so keen to go it alone, yet when going to get medical supplies he throws a couple of flares to distract zombies, then nips into a portable building. he then looks amazed when opening the door 5 mins later, striding out and being faced with said zombies back stumbling around.
    what was he expecting them to do after the flares died out? did he not have a plan for what they would do AFTER they opened the door? no, it appears instead he would run the opposite direction to their escape route, he wouldn't fire a gun despite hundreds of zombies already knowing he is there, and would then trap himself in another area.
    again, why not just crack the door open a bit, fire off a few more flares and then make a run for it....still a chance of being seen but much less than busting out like duke nukem then running around in circles!


    yes, i know its tv and its meant to be situations like that to increase tension etc. but he is portrayed as the one who kept the camp running while they all thought the sheriff was dead, yet displays no idea of a plan when going into a heavily zombified (yes, its a word!!!!) area.
    the only one showing any consistency in his actions is the redneck brother. he only fights with silent weapons, he doesn't mess about and he acts rather than whimpering about.

    First episode of season 1 was epic, but then it died off a bit. Last episode was good though.

    Might strain myself to watch the 2nd series.

    So far the second series is going the way of lost, calming the whole thing down and making it a bit less enjoyable to watch. Fingers crossed it picks up a bit though.

    It is still good but a bit slow in places - and we think their heavy southern accents have got more incomprehensible!

    I gave up on lost during its 3rd year, when they said they had only been on the island for 3 months. all they kept showing was flash backs gah!

    Seems to me that many of these multi part programmes need to be writted with the end in mind. The recent Hidden starring Philip Glenister and many other great actors being a prime example. To me the first episode was watchable but not edge of seat stuff, episode two was absolutley fabulous but the final part completely ran out of steam and failed to present the gripping conclusion it needed.

    Have to agree it's a bit slower so far, Carl got shot at the end of episode 1 and by the end of episode 3 they got around to operate. Having said that Shane's character is turning very dark, which is going to make good viewing. Can see Daryl becoming the Lock / Benjamin of the group.

    All I will add is hurry up Fringe Friday!
