    Please don't encourage them, otherwise next week they'll all be lawyers and doctors. It's the last step, they don't do any real work on the show and its just talking as it is.

    Well spoilers sounded better for this ep than it was, until last 2min of course

    ep 12 spoilers were from the same person and on imdb as well, could be an interesting ep, but we know it won't be

    My question is, is there a growing backlash against the show and the writers? Besides the weekly recap, are there other sites and reviewers that bash the shit out of them?

    Dale died as he lived; an old man with a weird look on his face and no guts

    For awhile last night Dale was trending #1 on Twitter and looked like most people liked him unfortunately. Carl was also trending but even the consensus there was that everyone hates him. I think many people just basically force themselves to like this show just because it's about zombies, and don't want to accept how bad it became.

    I'll miss Dale from the standpoint of this thread alone, the Dale face off makes me laugh hard everytime.

    RIP Dale. I start to support you, and 6 days later you die. I will now be taking my talents to Team Lori.

    The "T-Dawg, get a shotgun" line was my favorite part of the episode.

    How did Carl get in the barn the first time? He was just perched up top like Batman.

    Another point of contention, are these zombies like edward scissor hands or some shit? They can barely walk around yet have the strength to disembowel a man with their bare hands?

    I think the actor who played Dale was really hamming it up with the staring, knowing full well he was going to die soon.

    Sepinwall acts like it's good every week which is just further reinforcing my belief that he's a fucking idiot.

    Altho I think whoever writes the Grantland review tears the show apart on a weekly basis.

    I had to stop visiting another board's thread on the show because of a couple fan boys who loved every single element about every single episode, and if you posted to the contrary they'd jump on you quick. They liked that it took 6 episodes to resolve Sophia...they thought it was great writing.

    I just can't believe that during the end of the world when a group of people do nothing but sit around a farm all day, with 2 buildings (house and barn), that someone doesn't ask "Hey man, whatcha got in that locked up barn?"

    By the way, T-Dog had 4 lines in the sneak peek for the next episode. More lines in a sneak peek than 4 episodes combined.

    I have a feeling that T-Dog's character is about to come to the forefront.

    And for the record, I liked Dale, he and Daryl are played by the only two good actors on the show.

    Like everything on this show, I liked the idea of Dale's character, I just hated the execution. And the clairvoyance.

    i swear the writers remind me when i was a kid and me and my friends would come up with a ridiculous scenario and we would all shout out ideas and yell over each other. just keep adding and adding without any continuity whatsoever.

    but id appreciate if someone could explain
    a zombie with super strength that can eviscerate a man but cant find the strength to escape mud while a lil brat is throwing rocks at him.

    randall's sudden need to tell Daryl (THE GUY THATS BEATING THE SHIT OUT OF HIM) that his group has rapists among them.

    how the shit is cowboy carl able to wander around without anyone knowing? dont they have a buddy system or some shit?

    Was I the only one hoping that the zombie would get the gun and become an armed zombie, tearing through everyone on the farm, eating them, and then praying that we could start following another group (basically starting over)?

    Or at least that the zombie could get the gun and start using it. Just throw me a little bone for watching over the past 12 episodes or so.

    Apparently Talking Dead is the chief czar of rationalizing wtf happens in the show.

    So how the zombie tore open Dale:
    they said that since human nails get longer after people die.....ugh. Yes they literally said that was how. Somehow more disappointing than zombie super strength

    Human nails don't even get longer. The skin under the nail shrinks from dehydrating making the nails look longer. Learned that on criminal minds so I take it as fact.

    They must also sharpen them to a point. The whole disemboweling was just absurd. The zombie was so fucking weak earlier in the day that even dumbass Carl managed to escape its grasp. I know that Dale isn't some weightlifting champion but he could have thrown that fucking thing off of him.

    The zombies get weak and decay if they don't feed. Don't know how long that one was stuck in the mud. Looked like he had fed off of that cow before attacking dale so he should have been stronger.... ?

    He is probably the reason a lot of people died in season 1, but I didn't hate him at that point so I wasn't really paying attention. I feel like I'm really missing an opportunity for some good hatred there. I'm going to have to go back and re-watch season 1.

    Zombie had no muscle mass in life and none in death.....yet can bust open a rib cage.

    God, everything about this show just pisses me off. I love the post-apocalypse theme and this should be so good. I want it to be Battlestar Galactica (who wrote the book on man's response to the end of the world) but with the undead instead of robots.

    But no.

    We get a bunch of queers.

    The only thing that can save this is finding a living Mark Richt who has forsaken God.

    I wonder if T-Dawg get's a full check for the episodes he doesn't have a single line and just chills in the back ground. That's a pretty good gig, I should get into acting.... based on this show it can't be that hard. I could probably be a writer also, obviously doesn't take much skill....

    That’s the thing about zombies, though. You either see them coming from a mile away, or they sneak right up on you. It all depends on what makes more sense for the writers. Anyway, Dale screams and the zombie tackles him and now they are rolling in the grass and everyone is running to help him but he’s so far away and out in the darkness because he’s got morals, I think? I think that’s why. The zombie is getting closer and closer but also kind of taking its time, and then the zombie RIPS OPEN DALE’S TUMMY WITH ITS HANDS! Did you know zombies could do that? Surprise!

    same zombie then rips his fucking guts open in 2 seconds

    This show has literally created the two most hated characters ever in Lori and Carl. Hell there was always going to be a Dale in every group, but that stupid bitch and her whacked kid keep me tuning in just to see them die a painful death. Seriously they have reached a Scott Templeton level of hate for me. Pussy ass kid all of a sudden turns into this cold blooded killer talking about Do it Dad when he ran like a bitch from the zombie in the swamp. Hell I work with kids and it doesn't bother me in the least when I say I hope he gets Sanduskied by some walker while his mother gets her spine ripped out by some walker.

    God damn this show....yet I still watch:idk:

    Clearly a rabbit hopped past the zombie while it was feasting. The fresh scent caught the zombies attention. Once the zombie dove onto the rabbit and finished it he realized dale was standing out there. Hence how dale didn't see the zombie.
