    Loved the dramatic tension in the house with Rick hiding from the intruders.

    Michonne is very pretty when she smiles ... glad she is still there.

    Glenn is a self-centered a-hole for stubbornly jeopardizing four people so he can continue his quest for Maggie.

    I'm not crazy about that scientist fella'. He'd better be worth it.

    And the butt on Rosita the new girl ... wow! <boing!>

    I can see Abraham Ford is going to be a big player. A man on a mission.

    Hank, we must've watched different shows. Or started drinking hours apart from each other. ;)

    There are just too many sub plots, it's too disjointed. I count at least four major plot lines (groups), maybe 5? And they only let one or two play out per episode? Boring. And even more people making stupid decisions like Glenn and the scientist with the full auto gun taking out their only transport. All roads lead to sanctuary ... And they'll all be reunited ("because it feels so good"). BOOORRRRING.

    But yeah, that new girl is a looker.

    I was extremely bored with Rick hiding in the house. Typical horror / sitcom BS.

    Glenn is fine. He is looking for his wife. As he should be. The selfish, stubborn person is the scientist, and perhaps the soldier. If this mythical mission is so important, and they need Glenn so badly, then they should tell him exactly why and let him decide. Not try to bully him or demoralize him into abandoning his wife.

    I hated the stuff with Rick in the house. Why would he move from under the bed? He should have been content to stay under that bed for days if he needed to, just to wait until those people left. He had no way to know if the floor would creak when he moved, or if the guy on the bed was a light sleeper.

    And then when he went in the bathroom and clearly wasn't very quiet while closing the door, when there was someone else right outside, that was just ridiculous. But then he gets in a big fight in the bathroom, slamming into walls, knocking stuff off the counter, etc., and yet the others in the house don't hear anything? Maybe they were all deaf.

    As Hank said, I'll be glad when the group is reunited. These disjointed stories seem kind of lame, since we know they're all going to eventually find each other.

    Well, he had to worry what would happen when Michonne and his son came back, so I can understand him wanting to get out to head them off. But all the silly situations he got into seemed like a cross between an episode of Three's Company and a bad horror movie. Trite and boring.

    It was a decent episode. I always enjoy the Carl and Michonne dynamic. Rick was seen so he had to get out before the guy that passed out wakes up and exposes him. Besides that, he had to protect Carl and Michonne from the crazies.

    Glen bugged me a bit but his motive to leave made sense. It is the "scientist" that irritated me the most. He shoots up the truck instead of firing in the air or honking the horn to get the attention if the rest. He then has the nerve to say, "I'm smarter than you." Don't think so.

    While nice to look at I don't think it is very safe to be wearing short shorts in the Zombie Apocalypse.

    Except then he would have been within reach when the dead guy turned (which obviously happened soon after he left the house, given the gunfire). So I have no problem with him trying to leave.
    Yeah, that was all pretty dumb. I wonder if it's another example of the people writing the show and the people who film it being (almost literally) on different pages...

    Because he knew Michonne and Carl would be returning.

    I'm not ready to say TWD has jumped the shark, but in this episode they put the boat in the water, started the engine and are waxing the skis!

    A.) The fight over the bed was soo totally contrived. And who in their right mind would choke a man until he's passed out or dead and then lie down a few feet away and go to sleep?

    1.) If he's passed out he's going to kill you when he comes to.

    2.) If he's dead he's going to kill you when he turns.

    3.) ????

    4.) Profit!


    B.) They couldn't have made more noise during the bathroom fight scene if they'd put a marching band in there with them. That we're to believe that no one heard that fight is insulting at best.


    C.) You're on a mission to save the entire world, your team consists of one doughy scientist, with a really bad mullet and a scorching case of Asperger's syndrome and a hot chick in Daisy Dukes and you think the best way to get others to join you is by withholding information and physical coercion?

    "Hey Buddy! You're going to have to sleep sometime!"


    --------


    Fire the director and all the writers, it's not too late to get the boat out of the water!

    I believe the guy that got choked out was still alive (it seemed obvious he was still breathing), but the guy did see him, so he couldn't stay there until the guy came to.

    Aside from all the noise in the bathroom fight, I thought once he had killed him, "Put the scissors in his head!". Then he actually left him that way and left the door open a bit so he could get out once he turned.

    I always watch with the closed captions on (mostly because I am amazed at the amount of background 'conversation' that goes on that I don't even hear when I go back and watch again), and when Jeff Kober was eating on the porch and all heck broke loose in the house, the cations said "Stop her!" and once the shooting started, "Kill her! Kill her!" I wasn't sure if the 'her' was a walker inside the house that we didn't yet know about (which seems quite far fetched given how long Rick, Carl and Michonne had been in the house) or a walker outside the house (which also doesn't seem quite right because of how panicked they all were) or if it was bathroom guy and the 'her' was an incorrect caption?

    That mullet was da' bomb!

    The stuff with Rick made me go Hunh?

    Carl and Michonne have a great chemistry and should just go off on their own together.

    The pink room.

    That was creepy.

    I don't have a problem with how Glen is acting. He is looking for his wife. Any of us would be acting emotionally in his shoes.

    No one came when the two guys were fighting over the bed. Maybe those guys tussle a lot, so no one cared that there was a tussle in the bathroom.

    His eyes closed and they showed him obviously breathing after that.
