excited for this, just finished up season 2 on Netflix.
Maggie is a hottie.
Dont kbow what to make of it so far. There is such a huge time lapse. They went through the winter, walkers adapted to the cold? FreeIng temps will have no effect on walking corpes?
First two seasons all they ever shot were pistols and shot guns, they their rocking ak's and m4's? I think they skipped thru too much.... Too much time has passed.
There was a reference to "keeping us alive all winter" leading me to consider that they've been scrounging and scavenging for a while. Also, when they were looking at maps they mentioned that they went all through a certain area and something like "there's nothing left."
Rick's rifle with the laminated stock is sweet, I'll have to watch it again to see if I can ID it. Placing them in the south, I wouldn't be surprised if the writers let the audience assume that they found all sorts of firearms.

Given how close they seemed to be at the end of season 2, I am surprised it took them so long to stumble upon the prison.
Liked the 1st ep. overall very much though.

Wonder if the leg amputation will work (if revealed in comics, no spoilers please)...
they have suppressors! ....they sure wasted a lot of ammo at the prison though. they shouldve just baited all the walkers to come to the fence and stab them through it one by one. it wouldve been the safest method as well.
anyway im glad im finally on board with this show. i cant wait til next week.
I just got into this show over the weekend thanks to the marathon. I wish I would have seen it earlier. Happy to know they are finally picking up weapons, the CDC episode made me cringe with all the weapons they left on the floor.
The grave scene in the previews has me worried about Herschel though.

Im not sure how much they are going to be sticking to the comics, if they are not i have an insight people may not have mentioned.
The unborn baby. I have a feeling maybe it will play a bigger role then we think as far as a cure goes.
After all, a baby inside a placentia is independent from a mothers infection and disease. Its protected. For example, if a woman has aids, or cancer then the unborn baby will not. Same reason if she has a miscarriage, the baby will not be tearing her up from the inside.
I wonder if they can use that to cure the living. Obviously, the walkers are a lost cause.
I dunno jus a thought.
Even drug addictions can cross the barrier.
Regardless, this zombie virus is weird enough I wouldn't doubt the writers flip a coin whether an infant is infected like everybody else or the salvation of mankind. Depends how either scenario would affect the storyline to the writers' benefit.

The ammo waste was idiotic especially when complaining about not having enough. As stated above, why not just wait on the fence and skewer them? Then, they are all nicely piled up in a few places instead of all over the exercise yard and have to be carried, oy! I'm sorry Hershel, you're a dumbass. Why didn't you rub your butt in the zombie face too? I would think by now that ALL zombies would be treated as dangerous and spiked Roman style to eliminate the sleepers. Yes, I will continue to watch as I am hooked just enough to see where it is heading while secretly hoping they all get et.
