"There's a close camaraderie among the cast and crew of "The Walking Dead." ++Spoiler Alert++
And, according to Norman Reedus, his fellow actors - even the new ones - are open (despite being on such a big hit show) to give a little advice when asked."They really want you to do the best you can and we've become a really tight family down there. " ........

Splintering of the prison group just wasn't something any of them, including Daryl, expected to happen.
"The deal was, we said in previous episodes, like we thought The Governor was gone. I say to Michonne, 'The trail went cold and you should stop looking and if it didn't, I'd have been right out there with you,'" Norman recounted.
"I think their escape plan was a zombie escape plan," he continued. "It wasn't a person escape plan and it should have been thought out a little bit more. As you see on the show, it's like one disaster after another, all the time on that show. Even when [Rick] tells me about Carol, it's like, that conversation's not over. I don't really get time to process that before we get attacked."
Hell, yes, they should've! I keep yelling at the TV, "Where was your Black & Gold Plan?"
None of them have answered me, yet.
It’s an emergency evac plan with pre-designated rally points. If you’re getting hit from one side, the idea is you yell out “Black!” and everyone knows exactly where to go and what to do. “Gold” is the same idea, just the opposite direction from “Black.”
“Hell, yes, they should’ve! I keep yelling at the TV”
Isn’t that what this whole show is about? Yelling at the TV because of the continuous stupidity of what’s left of the human race, particularly Rick’s bunch?
For example, why can nobody in Rick’s group drive anything more complicated than a Volvo station wagon? Why not scrape out a dry moat around the prison with a D-9? The zombies would have just all walked into the pit and never made it to the fence. Pit fills up? Scrape ‘em out again with the D-9.
Why not go on a supply run to a nearby armory and fetch all the ammo and automatic weapons you could possibly ever need? After all, Bonnie and Clyde did that all the time.
And while you’re at the armory, get a few humvees, 6x6 trucks, some diesel tanker trucks, form a convoy and head north right before winter when the zombies all turn into zobiecicles.
Ah, well, stupid show is as stupid show does.
how about hanging speakers off a cliff blaring some zombie luring noise....they would just walk
That prison should have been the ultimate zombie-proof fortress. And if Rick would have quit agonizing over his invented moral dilemmas, he and his crew could have wiped the Goobner and his thugs off the earth, then taken over his town.
the other thing is why aren’t people using bladed weapons and hammers a lot more than the guns? They always bitch about the noise attracting unwanted attention from everything. Plus ammo isn’t abudant. They need to get swords. They also should have everyone going outside wearing armor or at least some kind of shielding to fend off an errant walker or two. Yeah it’s hot but damn, evveryone should always have SOME water with them on a belt too.
fire will kill them if it destroys the brain.
Virgil, I haven't read the comics, but I'm just not feeling the new arrivals. They seem a little too campy and comic book-y to me. I might change my mind, but for now...meh.
There are enough characters I'm invested in and care about right now, and I want to see what's going on with them.
If they did all that, a lot of their problems would be taken care of-—hence, no drama. It’s entertainment, not a survival documentary.
There’s no REAL drama anyway because their survival behavior is so ridiculous.
“They always bitch about the noise attracting unwanted attention from everything”
If any of ‘em had ever watched Road Warrier, they could figure out how to make some quiet pneumatic weapons using plain wooden shafts. Even better, how about some pneumatic nail guns for close range work at the fence? Should be plenty of boxes of nail-gun nails around. Heck, they even make nail guns that use power cells, so the things don’t even need to be tethered.
I don’t watch dramas or sitcoms — only time I saw Norman Reedus was in a low budget film with Alan Rickman. Interesting film with a surprise ending that’s famous among Rickman fans like myself,
All righty then
“All righty then “
Wellllll, it IS still a good show for yelling at the TV!
And I’m amazed that their gas tanks remain full after a year and a half of no fill-ups. Maybe show some quick siphoning scenes here and there, or some dialog about sending some people to get more fuel. I’d imagine there’d have to be a tanker truck or two in the greater Atlanta area that they could commandeer. Put a cow catcher on the front and get a convoy happening to wherever they’d like to go.
“And Im amazed that their gas tanks remain full after a year and a half of no fill-ups. “
My favorite was when they found the minivan in town covered with vines (almost nothing else has ever been vine-covered but that van), and the battery was dead. So they find another battery in a service station nearby, but the cells have dried out. No problem though, they just poured some water in it, stuck it in the minivan, and the minivan cranked up instantly at the turn of the starter
