Posted on 03/24/2013 7:08:14 PM PDT by vladimir998
I won't give it away so anyone who hasn't seen the latest episode yet doesn't get a spoiler from me. . . but I was surprised by climatic scene tonight. They always find a way to surprise on this show.
I had the pillow up to the mouth shouting NNNNOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!
As usual, depressing. I don’t know why I watch it.
I went to Church with the Mormons this morning...and then people think I want to go home and see it on tv...
that surprises me...
Yep. A real surprise. One of the reasons I love this show beside the slicing and dicing. With this show, you can’t predict what’s going to happen.
Spoiler: Looks like **** is a goner.
I figured the Gov would take **** captive and say Im gonna need more dental chairs.
Rather startling end to ****. But, WD seems have tough contract negotiations near the end of each season.
The only thing that surprised me was that the shocking deed wasn’t done by a sword wielder instead. (hope that didn’t give too much away)
And I was really developing a liking for ________________. Oh well.............NEXT !!!
That character has been at the top of my list for awhile. I thought it was way overdue.
I’m guessing it’s popular because no one is standing around examining how everyone feels but they yank the bolt and go out and get the job done.....
I thought this episode was fantastic.
The character has always been one of my favorites.
I can’t really say why, but that is the case.
Love the character, love the actor/ actress even more. I think he/ she is one of those actors/ actresses that once he/ she is gone, there is no replacing him/ her. The world is not producing actors/ actresses of this quality any longer that I can see.
I found myself feeling sympathy for both actors/ actresses involved in this scene, and I guess that is why I love this show, because the actors are of such quality that they bring the characters alive and make me care about them even though I know they do not exist.
That is rare these days.
Great show, and I’m gonna miss him/ her.
I read about that persons demise last week .
These shows are previewed a week in advance
A few weeks ago I wanted to see him dead. Tonight I actually teared up when he finally did die. He went out storming the beaches.
You know what, I did too, and I wasn’t expecting that type of reaction.
The character was deeper than what is seen with a cursory glance.
It was brought to life brilliantly by a fantastic actor.
For all the the faults the character had, it also had worth.
Good stuff, I can’t think of anything else on tv that compels me to think about it on any sort of deeper level at all.
I know....you just can’t help wanting to dissect and discuss. It’s that good.
Michael Rooker did a fantastic job with the character of Merle. Merle really did have a well of humanity down inside. I’m sorry it won’t be explored any further now.
Walking Dead ping.
There are some spoilers in this thread. So if you haven’t seen tonight’s episode of The Walking Dead, you might want to wait until after you’ve seen it.
Please let me know if you’d like on or off The Walking Dead ping list.
Anyone else catch a glitch? In first scene or so darryl and Rick go through a door. Darryl has crossbow slung and an M16 type rifle. When they go on the other side of the door, Rick has the rifle and it grew a scope....
What I love about this show is just not just a “zombie” show but it is show about the emotional aspect of humanity but it also a show of REDEMPTION. It gives us an input how we may expect how others will behave during a severe crisis when our world is turned upside down.
Wow tonight episode had me crying. _______ showed that he redeem him or herself at the end. Yet very surprising that I was crying. I do not cry over TV shows but this show did. Starting with Sophia coming out of the barn, Rick learning Lori died, now this.
“...but it also a show of REDEMPTION.”
Yep. And then you die.
Well, there's always the ghost of Merle, coming back to guide lil' brother...
I had last nights episode recorded and then I realized I really hate the show and deleted that recording and the recording timer. I just don’t get into it.
May i be added to ping list please?
This was a terrific episode. I felt the same way about that character. When he bit it, I was like, Noooooo. Then, I remembered that I don't like that guy. Well, last night, I ended up liking that guy. He redeemed himself.
Just curious. Why would you go onto a forum and post that on a thread?
“Tonight I actually teared up when he finally did die. He went out storming the beaches.”
I felt sad but didn’t cry. I wanted him to shoot the governor but already knew the governor will be back next season, so that wasn’t going to happen.
When I saw the governor and Merle on the program following the show, the Merle character seemed to be like Merle in his real life.
Do you want on The Walking Dead ping list?
Yeah I did.
It might have passed Firefly as my favorite TV show with that episode last night. I just got a chance to watch it, and I was stupid enough to click on a spoiler last week. Still shocked me how it happened.
Ping me as well, please.
Thanks for the sympathies;-). I just got caught up this weekend with Castle. Has been great to catch the little references to Firefly they put in there. Has been a pretty entertaining show and will continue to watch it.
He did. I hope Daryl will come to know that, somehow.
I think so, too! Michael Rooker is a trip. When he was excitedly telling that story about the crack in the wall, did you get the sense everyone was thinking, "Get to the point", LOL?
One thing, though.....Merle told Michonne that he couldn't go back to the prison. Why not? Did he mean he just would never be able to fit in?
Yes, it’s OK. Added you to the list.
“I wanted him to shoot the governor...”
So how come when they shoot a guy in front of the Governor, the bullet doesn’t travel through and kill the Gov standing 2 feet behind. But when they shoot a deer, it travels straight through and hits Carl 20 feet away?
Must have changed to fragmentation bullets.
Michonne and Merle both earned their places last night. Rick is what I thought he was. Now, let’s see what Daryl does - ought to get interesting.
Well, that could be the difference between a .223 and a 30-06.
Could be. But I think it is all just fake!
When the zombies moved out of the way of Merle’s car was the giveaway to me!
My guess is there is a cut on the floor that was edited for time. That is where they changed gear.
Thank you .
