    Are we talking WD here?
    If so, yeah I'd say the combination of the past two episodes have been as good as it has been for the entire run. Great running tension and the characters are becoming more interesting. We know death is coming soon. Since this show is not afraid to kill off main players it adds urgency and drama to every new event. Show runners are stepping it up without merely dumbing things down with guns and explosions.
    Best season IMO

    And we also learned Marylin Manson is a drunken buffoon who's evolving into Butthead!

    Yeah, WD (Homeland had another really solid episode last night as well though).

    This season is definitely better than last season, at least up to this point. And it's looking like it has the potential to be the best yet. I mentioned after the premiere how I was losing interest more and more each season. But I thought this most recent episode was the best in a LONG time and it's got me legitimately excited about the show again and the direction it's headed.

    We're really starting to see significant changes in the personalities of many of the long-standing characters so it should be interesting to see how it all plays out. I think it's only a matter of time before Carl really starts to rebel against his father and his father's ideals. Meanwhile Beth has surprisingly evolved into an emotionless rock. Carol has taken kind of a badass turn but I get the feeling it's going to be her downfall, one way or the other. Michonne is finally starting to seem comfortable within the group.

    This season should be very interesting.

    We weren't hang-out pals but ran in the same music underground for a while. He worked at my local Peaches for a few years as well and I bought records off of him.. He was a total stringbean then...

    ya that was hard to watch. Hardwick did a great job of navigating around him.

    I really never watch talking dead, but almost couldn't stop watching just to watch the trainwreck unfold.
