They did use it as camo in the second episode. Rick sorta did it a couple of weeks ago.
The Walking Dead Season 2 (AMC) - Page 31
Was just reading on another site that Jeffrey DeMunn evidently regretted his decision to quit the show, but by then, he had already been written out, and it was too late to do anything about it. It was mentioned on Talking Dead that he flew back down to Georgia for Bernthal's "farewell" episode, however.
Im hoping against hope that during the farmageddon seige OTIS will shamble up.
Remember he was killed by walkers and not shot in the head.
Kinda like Barbara's brother appeared as an undead in Night of the Living Dead.
Speaking of likable characters in a zombie filled world, I read on AV Club months back, that there was talk of a Zombie Land TV show. I would love to see that. Cast Josh Holloway as Tallahassee.
On one hand I get way the characters on The Walking Dead act the way the do. If the world as we know ended and was filled with zombies, it is believable that people would kinda miserable all the time. Being suicidal as well wouldn't be much of a jump either. That said, it doesn't make the best TV show.
I hope FOX wasn't bullshitting about redeveloping the Zombieland show. The one thing The Walking Dead desperately needs (for me) is some humor. I get that the show is trying to be a more realistic take, so humor of any kind is counter productive, but it's no fun to watch a show that's nothing but a downer. Hell Lost was about plane crash survivors and even they built a golf course and became affectionate friends.
Agreed, because people don't really act this way, changing into different people from ep to ep.
And yeah I agree that the zombieland show could be really great. In a way I don't want to see it though because I would like a sequel and if the show happens I don't see it happening.
Exactly. Because reality isn't a super-dark morass of depression and waiting for death for most of us, no matter how bad things get. A realistic take on a situation as dire as theirs would likely involve a TON of sex, and pretty much any other frivolous activity you can think of (drinking, stupid games, looting, etc). The closest we got to that was at the CDC, but that got all rapey (buzzkill!).
Dude got ripped apart. I don't see him shamblnig anywhere.
How about an Otis head on top of another zombie's head and it's somehow giving that zombie directions on where to shamble to. Oooh...that would be a cool villain for the show: a cult that worships the dead and the leader is some Southern Fried witch doctor with a zombie head (still "alive/un-dead"?)on a stake that he gets telepathic messages from! He could also use the head on a stick as a weapon...like this:
Until last Sunday's episode I was secretly hoping to see Shane get torn apart Pilato-style by a large group of zombies led by Otis. Pruitt Taylor Vince would make an incredible zombie- by the time you realize he's spotted you it would be too late.
Kind of a blaxploitation-type zombie movie, but the design on the zombies isn't half bad, Don Pedro Colley is a blast in it, Marki Bey is hot, and it's only 91 minutes.
I loved those shiny-eyed zombies. Plus they are constantly, inexplicably covered in abundant spider webs.
Yeah. Well, unless you were at least 2ft away.
Yes I will be happy to see them finally get off the farm already
Maybe they mean in the way that everyone dies, so in reality every character in every show ever made was always dead.
Either that, or they didn't understand the ending.
Sure it does, if only that it's an uneven and frustrating show; that will create more discussion than just being bad (or good, for that matter).
Heads-up for those DVR'ing the finale tonight:
The episode is listed as running from 9 PM to 10:02 PM, so without commercials it's around 46 minutes in length, instead of the usual 44 minutes. They likely sold two extra minutes of commercial-time (rather than give the show extra content-time), since they know the finale will have a lot of viewers.
I've finally caught up with all newer episodes, and I have to say again: from all evidence, Darabont's departure was nothing but good news for the show. The second half of S2 is miles ahead of the first half. Yes, there are still flaws and problems. Yes, the dialogue and characterization are sometimes still dodgy. But we're getting movement, resolution, and more payoff for the time invested. Just finished "Better Angels," and I have no hesitation in saying that was better than anything in S1 or the first half of S2, pilot excepted. The showdown between Rick and Shane was done incredibly well, and for all the shit Lincoln gets for his portrayal of Rick, I thought he was aces throughout the entire scene, including post-stabbing.
Can't wait for the finale....and here's hoping we'll get more of the show in the fall, and not have to wait until 2013 for the next season.
All reports indicate the show will be returning in October for the fall premiere, IIRC. They'll still probably split it up into two eight-episode runs (into spring 2013), though, likely as not.
Why didn't the make a plow thing with the RV or one of the trucks? The farm had to have something to attach.
Please have Maggie die here.
Fixed that for ya.
I've asked this a few times now, but does anyone remember when Hershel refused to kill zombies? So all it took was for Rick and the gang to kill all his pet barn zombies and quick trip to the bar for a huge change of heart, I guess.
I'm sure there will be plenty of people who champion this episode for its violence, gore, zombie mania and high body count. They're wrong. This is the Episode II of Walking Dead episodes.
Is there one special guy who's drunk all the time who writes Lori? Another ridiculous reaction.
"Rick, I know you have your reasons. You have to make the tough choices."
"I had to kill Shane when he led me out in the woods to murder me. He turned into a zombie and Carl had to kill him again."
"You monster! Don't touch me!"
To each their own. I really despise the way AMC feels like they need to cater to Walking Dead fans and "sell" Mad Men to them. As if viewers aren't capable of liking (or, in my case, wanting to like) both shows. Kind of condescending to horror/zombie fans.
