    If a thread has already been started let me know.

    If the farm is so "walker" proof, how did one get into the well?

    I wonder if the farm is ran like a religious cult, note the old man saying you must follow my rules and he took all the firearms away from the group.

    Could have been there before they walker proofed it up with road gates etc? Besides, I saw no walker, only a 'swimmer'. :D

    I saw lots of cows in the fields. Why go shoot a deer when you can slaughter a cow?

    Something must be in the bars they don't want the 'others' to know.

    I don't think it's walker-proof, it's just isolated and not worth the zombies' time.

    Although you'd think all those cows would be great zombie-bait!

    Yawn... Yet another show where nearly nothing happens. What a difference from last season! I'm still watching but this glacial pace is starting to wear on my patience. Surely the graphic novel didn't move this slowly did it?

    The lost little girl thread has been milked so long there sure better be a big payoff in the end! :eek:

    The worst episode of the series IMO. And in case anyone missed it, they finally addressed why they have electricty.

    I must have dozed off and missed it. Why do they have power?

    When Maggie was listing all of the wells that are on the property, she mentioned one was by the generator.

    Did any one else catch the HUGE spoiler in the previews?

    The comics moved even slower. I think I can remember 3 issues in a row that had no zombies at all.

    Ah. I was expecting something more. Guess that was par for this episode. ;)

    I wonder how often they have to make trips out to the parkway to get gasoline from the cars to run the generator? It would seem to be fairly plentiful if they run the generators all the time.

    Given that there were 5 wells, their plan to pull up the 'swimmer' seemed crazy-risky. Why not just write that one off as a loss, and abandon it?

    I agree... It was a dumb move and could've cost Glen his life.

    And I bet wells 3-5 never get mentioned again. The episode easily could have been written in such a way that the characters really did have no choice but to do what they did. Say, if this was the only well, or one of two. Then it starts to be a more reasonable action and necessary risk. To write it in such a way that there were 5 wells and the house only uses one of them forces me to conclude that the writers WANT us to think that these survivors are crazy-risk-taking idiots.

    A conclusion reinforced by the remarks to that effect that the farm people made on a couple of occasions.

    It did also reinforce that Glen is the only one I care about making it. They put him in a ridiculous psoition, almost get him killed, and he still pulls off his part of the job. :)

    Glen definityl rules this show.

    On the Talking Dead, they had him and Maggie on (well, the actors, anyway). And they asked them if the sex scene was awkward to film. He started to say "No," she started to say "Yes," then they looked at each other like they weren't sure they'd come up with the right answer. :D

    I'm surprised the head of the zombie in the stayed on as they were pulling him up. I was expecting the head to pop off, then the body letting out all it's blood/goo/whatever and the head somehow floating still gurgling at them.

    We definitely must be a more patient and forgiving TV viewing family because my children and I really enjoyed it again.

    Zombie soup - mmm mmm good!

    Not a bad episode.

    They aren't going for a scream-a-minute for this series. As it is for the books, the show is about character development. (Not that a tremendous amount of that happened this week either...)

    I missed the first ten minutes - right up to the swimmer - so I'll need to watch that on tivo. It seems they only streamed ep 201. (Could someone give me a quick summary of the first ten? spoiler tags, if you need them.)

    (barely a spoiler)
    There have been a few hints that the farm in the show is going to turn out like the farm in the books, so that's all good.

    Lowering Glenn into the well has to be the most colossally stupid moves I've seen, though. I'd have to try with the lasso a LONG time and be out of water from other sources before trying something like that. Plus, how contaminated would that water be BEFORE they busted him open?
    Not sure if it was the books, the show, or just zombie lore in general, but if you eat zombie flesh, you die. Anyone else remember that? I'm figuring that zombie-tea qualifies.

    Did Daryl find the girl's hiding place? I figured that is what he saw down in the bottom of the cabinet in that farm house. I guess he isn't telling mom until he knows either way.

    (I'm going to feel really manipulated if the girl is zombie-fied and mom ends up being the one to end her.)
