    They already used this in season 1, so they know it works. We just needed a reason for them to get off the farm.

    Really? I thought it was a woman right away. Smaller frame and had the shape of a woman. Look at the legs. There are breasts there too.

    Sorry if this has been covered, I haven't read through the entire thread.

    By the way, that scene was dope! Best part of the season IMHO! I can't wait to see more about "her" next season. :)

    Anyone else get the song "Maggie's Farm" as covered by Rage Against the Machine in their head while watching this season?

    I always kept thinking of it whenever I realized there was a Maggie and they were on her (dad's) farm.

    The song would be amazing put to a montage of the hoard scene from this episode, or a montage of Glenn having to deal with Maggie. :D

    Michonne reminds me of the Black Riders in Lord of The Rings. I think a good weapon to use on the Zombies would be the oldfashioned Pikestaff. No need to stab with something as short as a knife. Get the hell away from any herd, and should any of them get close enough, use the pikestaff to the head. No point in indiscriminately killing Zombies at a distance, there must be countless thousands of them.

    As someone who gave up after the first episode of this season I came back and watched the finale.

    I will say this. Seal team six could not shoot better from moving vehicles over bumpy terrain.

    Apart from that it was pretty good. I have no desire to go back and watch the rest of the season, but I'm looking forward to the next one. This story arc was my favorite by far in the comics.

    I only read the first few posts in this thread, but I'm amazed at the difference of opinions. Everyone seems to love the show, but I feel it's really amateurish. Like it's written and produced by a community college TV class.

    The writing is lazy and sloppy. They don't manipulate characters into compromising positions well. They just have them do stupid random things to generate new situations.

    The hick accents are terrible. Like the actos are playing their parts for comedic effect. Slap some buck teeth on them and this is a sitcom.

    And the audio department needs a new teacher. All of the sound effects are over the top and mixed too forcefully. I get it that they want the gory, gooey effects to gross people out, but even footsteps and guns are too loud. It's distracting.

    Oh, and as someone who never read the comic, if you read Playboy you know who the hooded figure is.

    Is that available online anywhere? I really don't want to buy just one edition to read that.

    It was just a 3-page mini-comic about her backstory.

    Herndon,...
    Sounds like you're in perfect agreement with everyone in this thread. :)

    But you have to admit, the zombie make up is pretty good. :D

    Oh, Indy, I am in complete agreement -- especially about the writing and overall production (and I've said so in this thread, I think). I'm not sure why I'm still watching it. It is better TV than a lot of the dreck out there, but it doesn't even come close to comparing to Six Feet Under, West Wing, Sports Night, Breaking Bad, Men of a Certain Age, etc. It's not as great as the hype.

    The entire thing about Lori crashing her car, by herself, was so, so stupid. (Yes, I've seen all the jokes/images about it). And Carl always wandering around unsupervised. Come on. And as people have said already, they have no preparations for escape or attack... like they think their lives will just return to normal in a few days. The odd thing is that the zombies are believable -- the living humans are NOT!

    Come on now! Six Feet Under had a great ending but it had as much soap as anything else and Brenda had nonsensical crazy times just like Lori. We tend to forget the crap in hindsight. Even Sopranos had plot twists that just went away like the infamous Russians in the woods.

    Soap?

    Yes, but Brenda's freak outs were because she actually was crazy and unpredictable. Lori is a result of just really bad writing (and acting).

    Notice I didn't mention The Sopranos in my list... and yes, don't get me started on dropped plot lines.

    You got that right. Only the Blairwitch Project is worse. I watch it anyway! It's by far the worse television I have ever enjoyed watching.

    Season 1 was great, IMO
    Season 2 - first half was OK
    Season 2 - second half was pretty shabby but I watched anyway. The finale was good enough to make me want to watch Season 3.

    I appreciate all of the spoilers since clearly they don't closely adhere to the comic book anyway. Michonne is one bad mother.... shut your mouth
