The Walking Dead

Any Walking Dead fans out there? Season premiere tonight! Although I have to say I’m a little apprehensive about where the storyline will go. I absolutely loved Season 1. Each episode had me by the throat, tense and anxious with every development. I’m all over anything post-apocalyptic, especially when zombies are involved.

But Season 2 was a bit disappointing for me. A lot of fans seemed to complain that there wasn’t enough action for it to be a zombie series, and while zombie action is always welcome, I understand that The Walking Dead is more a study of how people handle the end of the world versus a zombie slasher. But I just found Season 2 boring, with characters becoming annoying and nothing of significance happening. Sure, there were highlights here and there, like finding out what finally happened to Sophia and the power struggle between Rick and Shane, but overall I found myself checking the clock as I watched. Don’t even get me started on Andrea. I don’t want to dislike her, but it’s hard not to.

Anyways, I hope tonight’s season premiere redeems the series for me! I’ll probably watch the entire season either way (I’m too invested at this point), but I’d rather enjoy the ride than keep checking to see how many stops I have left.

      I thought the first episode was great too! It gave me a lot of hope for this season. I love how dark Rick is now. It was a little creepy how there were some overtones about the potential of something romantic happening between Carl and that blonde chick (Beth, I think?). I mean…ew! I know she’s supposed to be a teenager, but ew! He’s a little kid compared to her!

    Haha that was a ewwww moment… But then again Carl is a little bad ass right now!! It’s going 2b interesting!!!!!!

    • SHKolee says:

      He is! But for some reason Carl annoys me. Maybe if he’d stop wearing that damn hat, I’d like him better. I feel bad for the guy who played Shane – it must suck to be killed off such a popular show!

      • Mariana says:

        I know what u mean cuz I hated the kid after Dale got killed because of his stupidity!!!!! And that hat is ridiculous!! What’s really sad about Shane is that he was really nice 2 look at!!! Although Darryl is my fav!!!!!

        • SHKolee says:

          Me too! I was so pissed when Dale died. I love Daryl too! But I do NOT like him with Carol. She gives me the heebeejeebies.

    K so I think the 2nd episode was even better!!!! Not gonna lie I screamed like a little girl when Lori was giving Hersh CPR n he jumped!!! Who do you think is hiding in the bushes ….. Darryl’s brother maybe???

    • SHKolee says:

      OMG – me too!! I was sure Herschel was going to start gnawing off Lori’s face! Even after Herschel woke up and we saw that he hadn’t turned, I kept expecting him to suddenly start attacking someone – it wasn’t good for my nerves! I agree – the second episode is even better and makes me excited for the rest of the season. I think Daryl’s brother is a good guess…we still haven’t found out what happened to him after he cut off his own hand to escape. I’m interested to see the storyline with Andrea – hopefully she won’t annoy me this season!

  4. Mariana says:

    Totally agree with u about Andrea!! She drove me nuts with her stupid attitude!! Sadly I don’t think she changed at all…maybe got a Lil worse from the way she was acting on the 1st episode…. We’ll c can’t wait!!!! ;-)

  5. Mariana says:

    Well how can u not like Darryll?!?!! ;-)

  6. Mariana says:

    Ok so last week kinda sucked!!! But today holy shit!! Did not expect that and I can’t lie I did cry a little!! And although Andrea drives me nuts I never thought she was a dumb bitch!!! Wicked good episode!!!!

    • SHKolee says:

      No shit! I was shocked by this episode! I can’t believe they killed off Lori (although I’m still not 100% convinced that Carl shot her since they didn’t show it). I mean, T-Dog’s number was up, but I was totally taken off guard by Lori’s death.

      I’m a wuss when it comes to this type of stuff so I got choked up too! I felt so bad for Rick.

      As for Andrea, she’s getting on my nerves again! But that Michonne chick is annoying too. All she does is glare.

      Can’t believe so much crap has happened and the season’s just started!
