I told ya to stay away from the barn.
This episode had me a bit pissed and I believe I may be reading in to it too much. The Andrea and her guns bullshit needs to stop. They've gone way off track from the comic in this subplot. In the comic, Andrea is very competent and learns to shoot soon after she has to do her sister in. She is one of the more rational characters. Right now I'd like to punch the fucking producers and directors right in their teeth for the bullshit they are playing up. Does anyone else see this? The little subtle bullshit about guns? A 17 year old farmboy hasn't fired a 12 gauge shotgun before? The "unstable" woman not only taking a shot at an unknown target but in the direction of 4 people from her party. Anyone of which could have popped in to her sight without warning and after they all told her not to take the shot. I have been enjoying the show even with all of the other misses but I think somene in charge has an anti-gun stance and is obvious about it. Tell me I'm reading too much in to it....
Well, the farmboy is living with the old man. The old man is saying NO to guns, the reason for that is pretty obvious now.
I wonder why Hershel wants to deal with all the zeds? Hmmmm! LOL!
Didn't the doctor say something about a cure in a past episode? I agree with others that they are either family or friends in the barn.
I often wonder when they get done with the script, the people over at AMC get to have their way and cut out some of good parts and once again inject a bit too much of drama (in these and other episodes) in this channel.
new guy <------ I will just dive in.
I don't think your looking into it too far but, I just think they are trying to push more along the sound issue. However they might be using that as a ploy to have some anti-gun issue. If you think about it, Hershel and his crew don't use guns and live literally down the road from the Highway. What did she say two miles back? With the surrounded area saturated by zombies, how have they had little to no interaction until they go out looking for the little one. I just try and take it for what it appears to be and that they are trying to be more covert. With her taking that shot I would imagine it would gain the attention of whatever is out in the woods. That's just my opinion.
Aside from that, whats with the barn and why stock pile zeds?
Its dead relatives that, I'm guessing, they didn't have the heart to put down. As for the gun issue, I really think that went to far into that shit and that its taking away from the main story.
Daryl is one tuff SOB to get through all that. I'm surprised he puts up with all that shit. He helps the group out so fucking much and when everybody got back to the farm, did they even think about where Daryl was or what was taking him so long? Not one bit. They never say one nice thing about him. Hell, Dale claimed everybody wanted to shoot him. Now, I know he was just kidding around when he said that, but he doesn't need to bring down everybody else to cheer up the group lunatic, especially the one man whose been through more shit than anybody else in the group and who has done more than anybody else in the group. Rick is the desk jocky that everyone looks up to and Daryl is the soldier that really gets everything done and then gets shit on for it.
Agreed. The characters are becoming to "defined" and predictable. I figured they'd stray from the comic. Always do. A farmboy who's never shot a gun lofl. The whole Merle flashback thing was the suck as well. Zombie nawing on a boot before the brain...stupid!
I was thinking the same exact thing! I keep wondering when the show's Andrea is going to come around and be the marksman that she is in the comic. Now I'm not sure they're going to do it at all.
You know, they migh just be leading up to that. They're showing how Andrea can't work well under stress and they might just be leading to a bad scenario where she will rise to the occasion and start taking control of the situation. I had the same discussion with Prime about Glen being so tactically sound in the city. It makes sense and it might be lead us back to the emotion that was strayed away from.
I hope thats whats gonna happen, because this season so far doesn't hold a candle to last season.
i have to totally agree with you i think they went a bit off topic and the old man is a piece of crap for not telling them wat was in the barn
The TV show doesn't really follow the book, I don't think it could. I enjoy the show, but frankly I'd stay as far away from those folks as possible.
I see a lot of people writing that they couldn't do stuff from the comic in the TV Series. I don't know one thing in the comic that couldn't be done in the series. They've got pretty good CGI, prosthetics and makeup. Maybe someone can tell me what they can't do in the series that they've done in the comic.
There was a lot of sex going on in the comic. Can't show that on tv :)
