The Walking Dead

Well last week ended in on an attack on the camp. So this week starts with burials.  Not everyone is able to let go, and there are question over how best to deal with the dead.  The more important question, though, is what the living are going to do.  Some would be happy just to stay where they are, but the double leadership between shane and our hero isn't hearing it.  Shane wants to go a hundred miles and check out an army base.  Our hero wants to go the CDC.  In all honesty, there's no wrong question to this since I think all the answers are equally screwed up.

It was a strong episode overall, and has now completely gone off the reservation of the comic books.  This isn't a bad thing as now we can look toward the second season with an air of mystification.  I think AMC has done a good job on this show so far, but it really needs a full season for a proper examination.  Thank the Lord, it has been renewed!!

  1. I can't believe how strong a character the older sister of the bitten girl is! She is a heroine on so many counts. Let me get through the process a bit, and I'll do what I need to do. Amazing and great acting.
    Lots more character enrichment going on in this episode, as well as loss of characters...
    The CDC guy will be an interesting addition.
    I wish they'd cut over to Morgan and his son, even if it's minimal.
    I too am glad it has been renewed.
