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!
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?
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!!!
