    I've never watched Walking Dead until last night after seeing it all over facebook and twitter, and I must say; IDK why it's so popular, it looks fake as hell.

    Maybe if I had been following it from day-1 I'd like it some, but after seeing last nights episode I can say I won't be missing football games to watch it.

    First season is pretty good. If I had started watching in the second season or so, I'd think it was terrible. but the first season makes you care about the characters, so you're on the hook for the 2nd season.

    Yeah this definitely isn't the kind of show that you can just pick up mid-way through it's run.

    Everything is new to me. I never read the comics or google any spoilers. I have no idea who the governor guy is. I still don't understand the point of the black chick dragging the armless jawless zombies around.

    Feel bad for ole' Herschel. Much like Rick, I've had to cut a mans leg off before using an axe.

    RIP David Parker


    +1 if anyone remembers

    I didn't start watching until season 2. Everything was zombies.. zombie games, movies, zombie dlc's.. I had absolutely zero interest in watching something about zombies. S2 wasn't amazing, but I liked it enough to go back and watch season 1. I don't watch Breaking Bad of Sons of Anarchy.. so Walking Dead is easily my favorite drama on TV.

    They are her relatives or something. The zombies. one's her boyfriend or husband or something. She ripped the jaws off of them, so they can't hurt people. And cut their arms off.

    The black chicks name is Michonne.

    I'm assuming it masks her smell.. so walkers can't smell her "alive scent"? You learn alot if you watch the Talking Dead after the show... doesn't give spoilers - just things you might of missed.

    I wont tell you about the gov'nah unless you want me too... don't wan't to spoil it for you. Real generally, he's the white guy you see in the "scenes for the next episode"

    Well..... i mean they are zombies, of course its going to be fake :p

    Thing is, you have never watched it, so havent seen everything leading up to last night. Its hard to enjoy a series when you start the 3rd season into it, especially this one because its more segmented than "seasons" Its one long continuation that literally picks up where it left off so you basically picked up a book and turned to page 150 and started reading.


    Season one was amazing, loved it and I was hooked, long enough to endure season 2 where it was more about learning about the characters.

    the first epi I ever saw was the one where they have the shootout in the bar in season 2. I thought the show sucked big time until I watched from season 1.
