    I agree about the hot daughter. She is one of 3 attractive women so far in the show who are about the only reason to watch it.

    This seems to be the right answer.

    I don't believe that he had anything to do with the onset of whatever caused the Zombies. I just get the feeling that there is something sinister about Hershel. I can't say exactly what that is, but something is not quite right....

    The internets are filled with arguments about "what to do during a zombie out break". The arguments are long and heated with no right answers because a zombie out break is FANTASY. Some people become very much experts at fantasy problems.

    I think it was said in a interview that they have only been at the farm for two days.

    Yeah....I have a hard time remembering that just because I "know" what to do in the event of a zombie apocolyps, that these people don't.

    That motorcycle bugged the heck out of me, but then I realized that they have little to no knowledge about zombie/walker abilities.

    They know that the zombies respond to sound. They've directly stated it several times and have avoided using guns when they can because of this. Using loud vehicles and low-MPG vehicles is stupid no matter if they know anything else about zombies.

    Pretty good episode. I think they'll find the kid but I am just not thinking about that anymore. Zombies in the barn - pretty weird. Old man getting weirder. More great body shots of Shane, but he creeps me out with that new haircut. Want bag for his head now.

    This week's 'Talking Dead' with Chris Hardwick was pretty funny. The guy who plays Merle was on there and that was fun. Also guesting was Aisha Tyler. Best line from the Talking Dead ep - (about Daryl) "He falls down the ravine twice, he impales himself, he eats a squirrel, and he makes an ear necklace...all before lunch."

    Loved how they showed that a lot of the guns were made of rubber and they showed Daryl's beat up bow from falling down the ravine. I love the 'behind the scenes' stuff.

    Except by this point, the survivors have learned a lot, but the writers choose not to apply that learning consistently. They may not know Zombie lore, but in this world the characters have long since figured out at least some Zombies can hear. Early last season they chewed out Glen for bringing the loud car alarm back to camp, and, since the very first encounter with Morgan Rick has known the sound of gunshots can attract them. Daryl and others have even favored using his crossbow for missions over a gun specifically because it is quieter. And yet Daryl is the one who chooses the loudest possible mode of transportation, and the rest of the group lets him.

    It's bothersome -- but for the most part I still enjoy the show.

    Maybe they only care about the loud noises WHEN they are on foot versus when they are driving 60 miles an hour.

    I figure the motorcycle would be fine driving by - the walkers wouldn't have a chance to get close enough to cause a problem. It would also provide an advantage with the clogged roadways. Now, they still have to get that boat of an RV through there.

    I wonder - did the "herd" come from all of the zombies kicked up in their wake? The zombies were following along - slowly- after the sound went by.

    I figured the zombies came from all those cars.

    And there is the rub. You have to stop/slow down eventually. Sometimes at the most inopportune time, as in this season's opener.

    I'm still somewhat enjoying the season because we're exploring the characters and fleshing them out, but I sure wish there would be more action and more stuff happening. Hopefully they've been setting up a lot of things and it's all going to break free in the last handful of eps this season.

    On the other hand you could say the chopper is the way to lead the herd away.
    If there is a group of them in the distance he could get on the chopper, make noise and lead them some where. IE it could be a useful noise tool.

    Not that it was all thought out. I just don't think its a complete lose decision.

    Then he needs to get some removeable baffles so he can be quiet when he isn't trying to lead them away!

    I watched the first five episodes of this season over the weekend and I thought they were great.

    I thought the show was slow paced last season and this season is more of the same, but I've gotten used to the pacing. I came here expecting praise, but I see mostly criticism. I don't care if Daryl has a loud motorcycle, or that the characters make some dumb decisions. I don't think the writing is bad.

    I was going to go back and read the earlier episode threads, but maybe that's not such a good idea. Hm, maybe I need to stay out of these threads and just continue to enjoy the show.

    I think an opinion of a show can be skewed by watching a bunch of episodes in a row. You don't wait a week to watch a slow episode so you don't think it's as bad.

    While everyone is entitled to their opinion, no matter how wrong it may be :) ...

    I have enjoyed this series since episode one. And all my co-workers that watch the show enjoy it as well. I haven't hear any of the criticisms from them, that I am seeing on these threads.

    I look forward to the show each week and don't over-analyse it after each episode.

    I watched a little of "Zombie Apocalypse" on SyFy last night. "The Walking Dead" is Shakespeare compared to what I saw :rolleyes:
