    I have to wonder if this show's popularity is going to remain high enough to keep it. Season 1 it was a zombie show. People love zombie shows, and it was hugely popular as a zombie show.

    So far, Season 2 is not a zombie show, it's a drama with occasional zombies. I love zombies, but don't enjoy dramas. I wonder how many of me there are out there.

    I thought it was funny that nobody was really that grossed out by it.

    Hmm, maybe the swimmer escaped from their Barn which is where they keep their family members which have switched over? heh. Not sure why the Barn is off limits yet.

    They need to move the story along.

    Just wait until the vet finds out he's part of one of the oldest jokes in the book....the ol' farmer's daughter!

    But he specifically sent him to that well of the five.???? Unless they know who he was but not where he was. You'd think they would have heard him down there. He was noisy.

    There's a time and a place for gun control, and this ain't it.

    Interesting to see all the things we take for granted. They can't easily get birth control even though this is the last time you would want to be PG. And she will never know whose baby it is unless they come across another untouched lab type place. What happened to going to Fort Benning?

    I think I would have waited until they got home for the sex. Better Dad walking in on you than a Zombie.....maybe...

    So Shawn (is that his name) has an on off switch for his morality. Good to know. ;)

    but from the Vet's side, I can see where he would want these mismatched group of strangers away from his farm and family.

    Totally. We know that Rick and his group are basically good people, but the Vet doesn't. All he knows is that Rick's group outnumbers (and probably out-arms) his people, and potentially threatens their way of life.

    I get a bad vibe from the dad from time to time, but considering the amount of trouble the dad (vet/farmer), and Otis (volunteering to get supplies to aid in the boy's surgery) went through to be helpful to our merry band I can't see the family as being bad.

    Unless, They want the children! The little girl is being held in the barn, and Otis shooting the deer may have gone down as explained, or he was aiming at Rick/Shane and missed. Would explain why somone would go hunting in zombie infested woods while good beef is grazing back at home. And the daughter, only sleeping with Glen to make babies. (Also this plot of stealing children has been done lots of times before). If the family knew about the zombie well maybe they were plotting to kill the adults off with it.

    Like I said, I keep getting a bad vibe from the dad but so far the family has been nothing but helpful so it could be that the writers are slowly creating reason to build mistrust in the group and it turns out the family is innocent but gets destroyed by our group. or my B.S. story in the paragraph above is the only thing that makes sense if they are up to something bad.

    I'm with you, that was probably the worst episode of the series

    perhaps the walking dead are the main characters?

    When Glen (the best guy in the series) gets laid by hottie farmer's daughter Maggie (Lauren Cohan), things can't be all bad in post zombie apocalypse world.

    I don't share the hate for this episode that others do. It leaves me wondering... what's next. The vet is creepy. I think the Glen/Maggie thing might lead to problems. And I thought hillbilly found Sophia's hiding place, under the cabinet with the food, where there was a pillow and blanket, yet he hasn't mentioned anything. I don't get that.

    It could be as simple as he doesn't want to get her hopes up. From his dialogue in the episode I think he's really hoping to find her alive, but even without the threat of zombies being lost in the woods for 4 days can be life threatening.

    These people need to get busy making more babies if they want humanity to survive. There are only 4 women of child bearing age, right? I hope Maggie and Glen didn't use those condoms they found.

    I'd think humanity has a better chance overall if the women avoid pregnancy until after the zombie threat (hopefully) dies down some. If I were a woman, I wouldn't want to be slowed down by pregnancy or an infant while basic flight/fight survival decisions are still being made on a regular basis. I think pregnancy would be a big liability in these early days.

    In the immediate vicinity. But there are undoubtedly lots of pockets of survivors all over.

    Remember the vatos taking care of the seniors in downtown Atlanta? They are still out there, maybe. And now we have met the people at the farm. There are probably a lot of other homes in rural areas like that where survivors are finding each other and taking shelter.

    So I would not be worried about the survival of humanity as much as I would be about my own survival. And my own survival is enhanced by not getting pregnant, so that would not be high on my list of priorities. Plus, give birth without an ob/gyn and an epidural? No thank you. :p

    That sex in the drug store would have been more exciting if there at least some threat from zombies. But apparently all the zombies have disappeared in the show unless they were stupid enough to fall down a well. :rolleyes:

    They brought up a good point on Talking Dead (not a spoiler)

    Would you ever drink water out of a well that had a dead body floating in it? No? So why would you ever drink water out of a well with a "living" zombie in it even if you removed it?

    Because you can't just run to the store and buy some bottled water?

    Well you can run to the bottled water truck on the highway or the other 4 wells, right?

    Speaking of stores, was the town with the drugstore the fakest looking town ever?

    It looked like a set of an old Western, or the "town" you would see at King's Dominion.

    Bar, General Store, Bank, Drugstore. Didn't see Casino or HoHouse.

    That'd be a more compelling argument if they hadn't just found a whole truckfull of water bottles. No way would I drink corpsewater.
