    Also, under the bed is an obvious place to look if you are scavenging.

    I have to admit, and as much as I truly love this show, I was kind of bored during parts. I rode through on FF1 for a lot of the Rick hiding stuff and other parts.

    I did have to go back and watch some parts again, after watching TD, because somehow I missed that Mullet Boy destroyed the vehicle. Initially I was confused as to why they decided to follow Glenn.

    My least favorite parts were when the guys came into the Rick/Carl/Michonne house. I thought that would never end. I agree it was contrived and didn't add anything to the episode. He ended up catching Carl & Michonne as they approached and everybody lived happily ever after - for now. So, what was the point? It kind of felt like the boring weeks of trying to find Sophia, to me. I guess just being on the move again was the only point I can come up with.

    well it is obvious they do NOT have a bug out location. I can't believe they had a plan (the bus and it being stocked) but didn't have a set location to meet up at if they ever got seperated. d...u....m...b.

    The point was to get Rick/Carl/Michonne on the move again, otherwise they would have just stayed at that house

    Just for clarification those were vampires in "I am Legend" and not zombies.

    For further clarification the spoiler only happened in the movie, not in the original story. (though I have no objection to it.)

    I will never understand people who claim to love the show, but FFWD through sections, then wonder how they missed critical bits of story. ?? :confused:

    This this this.

    And how many miles can you travel in 3 hours?

    Not sure of course how fast they were going, it was country roads and such, so I can't imagine too fast, but still, it seems like a long travel back.

    The mullet guy reminded me of the Gov's assistant and a little bit of Forrest Gump.

    I would look under the bed, but not for walkers. I'd be looking for things I could use just like Michonne and Carl are doing in the other houses.

    He didn't shoot up the truck on purpose. He clearly had never handled a gun before, especially not a fully automatic one, and it just got away from him as he pulled the trigger.

    The thing that bugged me about that scene is why would the Cornfield Walkers come out of the field and start heading toward the one scientist standing by the truck, when there were four people standing on the road in the other direction, and Glenn and Ford were fighting and making noise?

    What were Rick's other options?

    Not to mention that he was the only one actually being quite. The others were all in a scuffle.

    Just chalk it up to the mystery appearing walker in a field, problem ;)



    I have to agree that I didn't really care for the Doctor's introduction. I do like the new Ginger guy, though and of course the new girl!

    I don't think so, at least I don't recall ever seeing one. I hope we never do. The little girl in ep. 1 was more than enough to drive the point home... for me anyways.

    Though it wouldn't surprise me if the did show one just for the shock/ewww/creepy factor. Especially if the ratings begin to wane.

    The biggest problem I had with that scene is the fact that a fully automatic weapon doesn't travel side to side when it gets away from you. It will climb on you, thus sending your rounds high.

    Just more wax on the skis.

    Quickly out the window. Not a great option, but better than hiding under the bed, a place scavengers are sure to look.

    Speaking of which, is Rick dumber than a box of rocks? When he was trying to open the windows, he did not appear to look at or fiddle with the latch on the windows. He just tried to pull them open.

    Well, he had 2 problems: 1) Michonne and Carl would be coming back sooner or later, and 2) the dude who had been kicked off the bed and lost the fight had seen Rick, and he was just unconscious, not dead, so Rick needed to be gone before he came to. So Rick didn't have much of a choice - he had to get out of there first chance he could.

    Yeah, that part was ridiculous.

    Remember that they have source material that they are following (though not precisely) and that source material was around well before The "I Am Legend" movie came out.

    But they didn't say that until *after* the guy had napped on the bed for a bit, and the group (or at least part of them) were on their way out of the house (which was the one guy came back up to grab his gun). So I'm sure in that dude's mind the room had been cleared already.
