Skip to comments.'The Walking Dead' Season 3 Review: Gore Galore as Humanity Hunkers Down
Posted on 10/14/2012 3:30:47 PM PDT by djone
"There's still no sign of Andrea (Laurie Holden), who got separated from the group at the end of season two.
When the group discovers an abandoned prison, they think they've found a place where they can hunker down and breath easier - at least for a few days.
The prison is crawling with walkers, forcing them to go on a ruthless killing mission to secure the perimeter. And you know what that means - a series of zombie kills fashioned with the kind of special effects George A. Romero could only dream of back in 1968.
The monotonous killings may please gore hounds, but you'll soon long for the big picture questions that separate "Dead" from most other zombie offerings. The season still holds plenty of potential even with the show dumping some red meat out for the base. Rick's wife, Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies) is very pregnant, and she wonders if the baby will be born "walking," if you catch her drift. Rick is in full command of the survivors, but he's also learned he must kill fellow humans to protect his own.
And what about the mysterious woman we saw at the end of season two, the warrior with those serious swords? She's back, but we haven't learned much about her yet.
"The Walking Dead" isn't afraid to sic walkers on some of the main characters to keep us guessing. It's one of many reasons why "The Walking Dead" isn't like any other show on television. Yes, those bedside vigils from last season wore out the patience of regular viewers, and some of the knotted brow dialogue can be precious. New show runner Glen Mazzara treats pulp material with dignity, making this zombie apocalypse superior to the modern undead competition - no matter the screen size."

It can’t get any worse that the boring ‘farm storyline’ of last season.
I’ll be watching at 8 pm central.
I’m totally hyped up for this season!
Much more action and better settings.
Fortunately today’s Tigers/Yankees game is a day game and will be over by showtime.
16 shows this year instead of 13 like last year. Great show....I expct if Obama is put back in office this is our future.
Great show. I’ve been down with a bad cold and catching up on re-runs most of today.
Season 3 looks good. I saw a trailer and it looks like Daryl’s brother Merl might be back?
Just think if they were democrats, they’d be marrying the zombies.
I always watch for a better way to kill zombies - you never know when you might need that skill...
One of my favorite shows on TV.
I’ll be watching. I like this so far.
don’t like new shows , revolution, last resort, and new fringe.
Have Nashville on the TiVo haven’t watched that. Hopefully good.
Haven’t liked much this season.
Merl is back.
“Just think if they were democrats, theyd be marrying the zombies.” Hey CR you are so right.
EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ZOMBIES ...When do we want it_ NOW
EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ZOMBIES... FREE THE ZOMBIES
EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ZOMBIES...Zombie protection under the law.
Wow my all time favorite show. This show prep us in how to deal with moonbats when there is no room in Hell for them. This show will be showing us many methods how to get rid of those pesky moonbats should they take over.
So far I’ve only seen two instances of blatant democrat influence on the show. The first is racist Merle who doesn’t like democrats. The other was the nursing home where the kindly Hispanics were the only ones who stuck around to help the old folks in the nursing home after all the gringos ran away.
I watched it & found it a bit boring. The bad guys can’t talk their dead ; on the other hand,except for liberal comments, Supernatural is a great show.
I’m counting down the minutes until mayhelm starts. Let the slicing and dicing begin!
I got hooked too.
I didn’t watch the 1st season. But I kept reading rave reviews. I got Netflix and it had Season 1, so I watched.
Now, I won’t miss an episode.
