The Walking Dead Chitty-Chat Club!

Posted by Wm.™ Steven Humphrey on Mon, Oct 17, 2011 at 12:16 PM

Why, hello! Last night was the season premiere of The Walking Dead, and I was wondering if you would... you know... like to talk about it or anything. "No" is also an appropriate response. Hit the jump for some quick SPOILER-IFIC thoughts, or hop straight to the comments to plug in your own two cents!

Do you wanna ROCK?? (That is the last joke you will ever hear.)

Commence... THOUGHTS!

1) Is it just me, or are those zombies running a lot faster than last season? For somebody with perpetual foot drag, that river-running zombie could really move out!

2) Call me old-fashioned, but bashing a zombie's brains out with a rock still beats almost any other method. (Although the new methods I came up with in this week's I Love Television™ are pretty sweet, too.)

3) Examples of when having a racist around can come in handy: a) Saving black people by covering them up with dead bodies, b) tracking little girls through the woods, and c) gutting and exploring the insides of a zombie's stomach.

4) And remember this?


That button says, "No Excuse for Domestic Violence." And five bucks says the guy's wife turned into a zombie and ATE HIM!!!

5) Best scene: Everybody hiding out under the cars while the zombie mob shambles by. Worst scene: Ummm... almost everything else.

6) That episode was OHHH-KAY, but other than some sweet zombie bashings, I wasn't moved. (And no, I didn't like the deer scene at the end, and thought it was cloying.) If you ask me (and I know it's way early to say this), but I think American Horror Story is already trumping Walking Dead's suspense and fun factor. ARGUE WITH ME!!!
