There is an Image comic series, written by one Robert Kirkman (Invincible) called The Walking Dead, in which a group of people try to make their way in the post-zombie-apocalyptic world. Things don't go well for them (especially the children).

There is a show, based on the aforementioned series, that tells the same story, albeit at a somewhat slower pace and with some different occurrences. Things do not appear to be going any better for them (especially the children).

    Talking points:

    Zombie autopsies
    Zombies tracking by: sight? smell? hearing?
    The pros/cons of riding a harley in a post-zombie world
    Guns vs. Crossbows
    Screwdrivers vs. Machetes & hatchets

    Which is odd, seeing as how he used to work in a Harley shop (according to his IMDB bio)

    Just finished Rick's intro call.

    That Harley seems like a really really bad idea.

    I don't have cable, but my friend DVRed it for me, so I'm gonna watch it tonight.
    So excited!
    Also, it's really hard to not click on those spoiler tags.

    How good is this new episode? Does it compare to the last season? Better? Worse?

    Does the tv show kind of follow the comic?

    Mmmnot really. It has diverged pretty heavily in terms of where they go and who lives and dies.

    Pretty good bro! I like it as much as the first season. Not better, but not worse, imo.

    Honestly if this had been 90 minutes of Darryl being a hick ninja, I would have still watched it.

    He was the best part of this episode

    It was... alright. Like the first season, this episode was a bit of a mixed bag.

    Ok, I will come into it with mixed expectations.
    I'm hoping that they follow more with the comic books in the future, because if they ended up going to
    (spoilered just in case)
    Spoiler:
    that would be pretty sweet to watch play out on the show.
    It was one of my favorite segments so far in the books, and seeing it on screen would (hopefully) be awesome

    Darryl continues being a stone-dicked badass. His little stealth zombie kill to save whats-his-fuck with the arm was awesome.


    "Shhh"


    Also, anyone would look uncomfortable riding that bike. Ape-hangers are God-awful to ride with.

    I think the other characters go a long way in helping me understand and sympathize with Rick who, let's face it, is who we came into the story with and with whom we most closely identify.

    I've also never seen a rack like that on a buck in June-July.


    But then again they may be different down here in GA.

  • Dead LegendDead Legend Registered User regular
    i saw a pretty good rack back in july - august, considering the conditions (drought) i was impressed

    but these hill country deer are usually small-bodied with racks much bigger than they should be for their body size. this close to campus though, plenty of food and water. i've seen some good ones and this cooler weather in the evenings has got them moving! i'm excited

    ps @Stale i bought a Sig SP2022 in .40S&W

    Very nice choice.


    Back home in IL, that rack would be half as big over summer. They didn't finish up and shed until Oct-Nov.
