TV Review: The Walking Dead – What Lies Ahead

The Walking Dead is a little different from a lot of shows on TV. Instead of having to overcome its initial awkwardness to find its own, The Walking Dead peaked with is pilot, which was all but perfection. In hindsight, perhaps there was nowhere to go but down after that inspired pilot. For the rest of the truncated first season, well, we spun our wheels a lot. There were occasional moments of brilliance, but the show was never able to recapture the magic. Finally, we ended the season with a ridiculous trip to the CDC. It was a fun enough ride, but ultimately a little disappointing.

But hey, things have to be looking up now, right? I mean, the writers and the show-runner have been replaced, so with any luck The Walking Dead will return with a renewed sense of purpose and a storyline the hews a little closer to the comic.

Hopefully there will be loads of these guys this season

Now that was a little bit more like it.

The ninety minute premier, while still not on par with the pilot, was solid, scary, and entertaining. The highlight of the episode was at the beginning, with the RV dead in the water and everyone hiding under cars from a fairly massive herd of zombies. There were things I didn’t like about the sequence (none of the zombies smelled food?), but I’ll be damned if it wasn’t tense and scary. Most of the scares came from Andrea and T Dog, both of whom missed the memo about hiding. Andrea was distracted in trying to learn how to reassemble a pistol, while T Dog was just… well, being T Dog, and losing a significant amount of blood in the process.

Andrea gave us an excellent, claustrophobic scene inside the RV. She hides out in the tiny bathroom with a handful of gun parts, while a curious zombie checks out their home on wheels. Of course, she drops a part right before the zombie leaves. After much bashing on the flimsy bathroom door, Andrea takes out the zed with a brutal screwdriver strike through the eye. Nice! The ever-hapless T Dog has to be rescued by Darryl, who simply covers them both with some convenient nearby bodies.

Speaking of bodies and screwdriver kills, I am continually impressed by the makeup effects on this show. The zombies look absolutely incredible. Hopefully they keep this up, as I heard some whispers of budget cuts for the show.

The excellent zombie horde scene put in motion the remainder of the episode’s plot, as little Sophia pokes her head out just a little too soon, and is chased into the woods by a pair of zombies. Rick is hot on the trail, and manages to help Sophia hide while he silently dispatches the zombies with a big rock. Unfortunately, when he returns to the group, Sophia is nowhere to be found. The search ends with Carl getting injured and the story folding back into the story from the comic, at least in part.

The resulting search for Sophia yields some fairly nice character moments. My favorite of the bunch was a showdown between Andrea and Dale over Andrea’s gun. Dale swiped it because he’s worried she’ll try to off herself, while Andrea reveals some simmering anger toward Dale for not letting her die at the CDC. It’s a pretty nice scene, and quite a diversion from the Dale/Andrea pairing in the comic. I’m curious to see where this goes next.

Dale gets another great scene with T Dog, where he explains that he fixed the RV a day ago, but hasn’t told anyone. Why? Because he doesn’t want people to start thinking about abandoning Sophia. Nicely done.

We also get quite a bit of Shane and Lori interaction, which was a little strange. Lori seems pretty okay with Shane, while Shane is on the defensive and acting like a victim. He even has the audacity to ask her what she thinks was going down back at the CDC. Gee, Shane, seemed like a pretty obvious attempted rape to me. I’m definitely interested to see how the Shane situation shakes out, since he’s shaping up to be one of the more interesting characters on the show.

One thing I don’t care for in the amount of time Rick is spending in monologues. He had two tonight, the first via a radio message to Morgan, and the second an audible prayer to Jesus, complete with bloody Jesus statue in the foreground. It’s almost like the show really wants a narrator, but wants to go about it in a non-traditional manner. It’s not working for me, so I really hope this doesn’t turn into a motif. I also have to wonder if someone else might be listening to that radio. Specifically: Merle, who might just be out for revenge after being abandoned in downtown Atlanta.

All in all, I’m pretty happy with last night’s episode, and have a lot more faith in the show. Word on the street is the next episode is pretty strong too. Hopefully AMC can keep it going.

Grade: B

Other Notes:

  • Where all those tools Bear Grylls branded? Yeesh
  • I love the hillbilly autopsy,but man did the sound guys go overboard
  • Suicide victim in the tent has a “No excuse for domestic violence” pin
  • God, there were a lot of zombie commercials
  • So the wife beater was also a child molester? Laying it on pretty thick, aren’t we?
  • In the comic, Andrea is easily the best shot of the group. The show seems to be toying with this quite a lot.

Season Two starts in just a little over a half-hour (on the East coast, anyhow). I figured I’d try out publishing a blurb first, to give everyone a place to chat, and then follow up tomorrow with the actual review.

I’ll be checking in throughout the episode as well. Don’t make me talk to myself.

I thought the CDC thing was premature. That seems like the thing you save for later in the series once everything is pretty well setup.

My take of Season 1 is writers having to cheery pick from the Comic line as they’ve only got 6 episodes and aren’t sure if they’ll be back for a 2nd season. I thought over all that Walking Dead is fairly good.

But then this is me who normally doesn’t like zombie flicks having found a series I’ll watch along with a couple on-line comics featuring them.

Dave

The fact that they one had six episodes was even more irritating, especially given they wasted that whole episode with the fake gang bangers at the retirement community.

Dave

Yeah, we’re off to a decent enough start. I can’t say that I’m a fan of the radio as a soliloquy, but otherwise a solid start.

I’m enjoying it so far…. I mean they’re odd for folks from the south.. If it was my kids they would already know how to use a hand gun.

Reply
Dave

I couldn’t say how old I was. Older than that though. First gun I shot was my old man’s .22 revolver. Still really like that gun.

Calicade

Boy are the regions different!
You fire a .22 at what ever age.
I fire a high caliber rifle at the age of six.
When I was 14 I fired a burst fire M16
And so on.

Loved the ending personally.. I think its the hillbilly.. Feel like I should of read the comic first, but I don’t know where to find it.

Dave

I’m curious whether it’s going to follow the comic regarding the identity of the shooter. I really like how it was handled in the comic.

Dave

Man, those church zombies; especially the woman, were super creepy. I’m really impressed with the makeup here.

Want to get my thoughts in before I read Dave’s review.

Well what can I say, I absolutely loved it. It was nothing short of amazing and everything that zombie movies miss and books tend to get right.

I loved the church scene and I am guessing the writers intention for that was to make you realize that those people committed suicide in the church. As they rised again they simply did something they have done their entire lives and sat in the pews like normal. Really thought it was well done.

Now I have never read the graphic novels but I think the walki-talkie thing doesn’t really work. I understand the need for narrative but it seems awkward how they present it.

As for the season one marathon…when I came into work this morning someone on my team rushed up to me and asked me if I like this show. It hooked her and she is obsessed with it now. Awesome to hear and I would NEVER guess she was the type to get into it.

zombiemutts

One more thought I meant to add.

T-Dog has open wounds and is heavily bleeding….I was very surprised the zombie blood didn’t mix with his to infect him.

Reply
Dave

Interesting point. At the time I thought his blood would bring the horde back. I was surprised more wasn’t done with that, so maybe you’re onto something.

Reply
Angelina1

Maybe T-Dog will be the next to turn. The season 2 sneak peek says he thinks that he and Dale will be abandoned. Maybe that is the fever talking.

Reply
Dave

I kind of hope so. T Dog is a really, really weak character. He doesn’t have much personality or motivation. It’s like he’s there to be a victim, feel guilty, or bumble around.

Calicade

I have a unique Bat-Zombie 6th sense theory developing on that at the moment.

Calicade

Well a-lot of the time the sixth sense can be any sense, and then it hit me! Like a bat across the back of the hit….
I blacked out right after the idea.. Yeah..
Bats use a sonar in order to find things, and what not.. My thought is that zombies have something.. Well.. Not exactly similar, but a form of feeling sound and movement. I took the fact that they respond to sound even though the glands of the body would be the first to go in decay. So instead what ever infected it would have its own system. And that would rely on the simple functions and communication of.. Lesser existance prehaps? This may of course be a stretch, but of course I said I’m having trouble fleshing it out.

Dave

FWIW, the walkie talky thing wasn’t a plot point in the comic. You’re absolutely correct, it doesn’t work as a narrative device. I liked it at the end of last season, when he did it once before they left. Any more than that is overkill.

zombiemutts

Good review!

I took the bloody Jesus as a shot at “the original zombie” joke.

“•So the wife beater was also a child molester? Laying it on pretty thick, aren’t we?”

I thought that was made pretty clear in season 1.

Reply
Dave

I thought you could read it both ways last season, and it was better for it.

In the comic you never meet the character, but he’s talked about as this really smooth salesman with anger issues. Pretty big departure here. Also, in the comic Carol is much younger and more attractive.

Reply
Angelina1

How did I miss that? I thought Carol was just being protective when she made Sophia go with her to the fish fry. Were there other tips I missed?

Reply
zombiemutts

The guy just seemed like a horrible human and he had that tone in his voice fit with the look of fear in the moms eyes. I probably made more of an assumption that picked up on any hints.

Dave

It was pretty oblique. At the time I was really hoping that wouldn’t go in that direction because it’s just kind of a pile on. He smacks his wife around and is an ignorant ass. That’s bad enough. Do we really need to through pederasty in there too?

I wonder if we watched the same show, tho I fell asleep the first time and had to watch it again. I thought it was a terrible beginning to the 2nd season, I thought that the comic book offers so much and the show is now detracting from it. Mind you I am very bias seeing as I have read the comics, and love them very much, but I think all the extra garbage they are throwing in the mix is really detracting from the plot of where the story should be going. Like Carol and Sophia, in the comic Sophia is pretty chill and stays put, the forest scene was just a short cut to get to Hershel’s farm.. I think the religion stuff is a grab for viewers, as there is not much on the religion angle until later volumes, after the day to day survival stuff finally wears the characters down. Mind you the zombie gore is why I watch, all the make-up and special effects are fabulous, and if anything, those will keep me watching. But the rest of the story seems so forced, especially since I have seen how it can flow magically.. I really hope that they can make amends and find a nice balance between show and comic. I knew when they were making the show it would be different, but I didn’t think I would feel so betrayed!

Reply
Dave

I don’t mind that it’s going in a different direction than the comic. I’ve read the comic, I know what happens, no sense retelling the story.

I am really excited to see how the Hershel’s farm stuff plays out. Hopefully Glenn (my favorite character in the comic) ends up with loads of screentime.

Reply
Mookidd

I love Glenn too, but my favorite characters are Tyrese and Michonne, and with all the changes that are happening I am not sure if we will ever get to meet them. And see that badassery in person! Sure sure, don’t tell the same story, then don’t use the same characters.. I mean it could have been following Shane if he just left the group, take a ‘what if’ take on the story and look you’ve even got your sherriff angle. but noooo they had to take something established so wonderfully and mutate it. First off with the whole CDC thing- the whole premise of TWD is that you are constantly questioning who are the walking dead.. zombies or survivors– there was a huge theme of the mystery, the unknown.. the CDC scene blows that away so they now know what’s going on. It just blows my mind that people can enjoy it like this, the conclusion of the premiere also felt so forced and awkward..

Reply
zombiemutts

Out of curiosity what zombie books or movies do you enjoy? And I am not setting you up for an argument or anything…just curious what tastes people have.

I agree that the CDC was a complete misstep. I’m really hoping Season 2 is stronger.

Regarding favorite characters, I’ve never really gotten too into Michonne. She seems to, I don’t know, fan service? Badass chick with a katana? Bah.

Reply
Mookidd

Fan service? What is the point of anything zombie if it isn’t to watch them get mutilated, gutted, gorged and dismembered.. so yea a bad ass chick with a katana is the perfect addition to a survivalist group, because she does just that, full embodiment of any zombie lovers greatest ecstasy. Did we even read the same graphic novels?? Fan service is making the comic into a show so people who like zombie stuff and don’t have time for reading it can jump on the band wagon. And what about Tyrese, just the typical black guy character? He destroys a roomful of zombs with just a hammer, a hammer for chrissakes.

Reply
Dave

Yeah, we’re reading the same comic. I don’t care for the character; I don’t like that character type as a matter of fact. I think there’s lots of point to zombie stories beyond tearing up zombies. Tearing up zombies is cool here and there, but doesn’t make for a compelling story.

Tyrese was different, at least for me. I liked his motivation, I liked that they gave him a lot of weaknesses. Yeah, the roomful of zombies versus a hammer thing was a bit over the top, but he was in berserker rage mode, so to speak.

Reply
Mookidd

What do you mean when you refer to, ‘that character type’? so far as I have seen there hasn’t been a lady like Michonne anywhere in literature before this. She was a cold calculating lawyer, who happened to take fencing lessons, got her life deranged and now in the apoc she is one of the greatest defenses they have against the horde. Michonne is one of the greatest mysteries to the group, no one really knows her story, which is probably the most realistic characterization there is, and the reader along with the survivors has to figure her out. She is a very important element to the comic for me, and by far, the most fluent in zombie mutilation and general bad assery.

Reply
Dave

Very simple, I mean the hardcore chick with the sword. Yes, Michonne has some nuance, which is good, but I just keep going back to the hardcore chick with the sword element.

I guess one thing that gets me is that I’m not a big fan of people in modern times using swords as primary weapons, especially katanas. There are just so many problems with it, like where do you even get a read sword these days, let along know how to use it effectively.

In this instance, you point out that she was a fencer. That’s a good way to justify her knowledge of sword, but she’s carrying a katana. Fencing is primarily a stabbing fight, while katanas are designed for slashing. I’m sure her fencing experience helped with picking up the katana, but they would be different skill sets.

In summation: I’m a grumpy old bastard and it annoys me when people use katanas in the 21st century.

Mookidd

Maybe it’s the fact that I am a hardcore chick with who wishes she had a sword that I identify so much. 21st Century, guns, machetes, blah, the traditional conventions need not apply, this is the apocalypse. how can we kill as many infected as we can, without the noise of a gun. The katana, if you remember was something she found in this Asian dudes apartment, so be annoyed no longer. it is light weight, sharp and since she has the knowhow it is deadly. I love that she has a katana, it adds to her unique nature.

Of course the human condition is a great focus to ANY story, the post apocalyptic element is definitely a great theme that in trying to understand our own subjective experience through is a way to better understand ourselves.. blah. Real zombie lovers know that the gore component is by far the greatest outweighing feature, no one who likes romance novels for the ‘human condition’ isn’t necessarily going to pick up a zombie novel for the same reason.

Reply
Dave

I would argue zombies are a pressure cooker element. Put people in a zombie situation, crank up the heat, and watch what happens. It won’t be pretty, but it should be interesting.

The gore is just a nice bonus.

Reply
zombiemutts

I don’t mean to gang up on you here as I don’t think it’s fair for you to have to argue with two people but let me just state that your comment

“Real zombie lovers know that the gore component is by far the greatest outweighing feature,”

Is absolutely silly and you’re looking at this in an absurdly simplistic fashion to judge on fanship based on that.

And I am honestly surprised to see someone that enjoys Kim Paffenroth saying that. His books are pretty much pure human condition type novels.

Reply
Mookidd

First of all, how can you even say I am wrong? Name 5 things that define a zombie movie… tell me gore is not on that list and I will have to make you rewatch and reread every single thing zombie you ever had. Second of all, for me it is the post apocalyptic element AND the gore. You ask anyone who likes zombies if they like gore, and 100 times out of 100 they will say yes. No one who likes zombies is going to shy away from that fact, and I don’t know why you are trying to hide it. I am purely arguing on this simplistic level because of the fact is that is what it genuinely boils down to. apocalypse, gore, and the human condition… but a zombie movie without blood or gore…will surely get a fail vote by any zombie fan. tell me I am wrong.

Reply
zombiemutts

Well I can’t say your wrong because now you are changing your argument.

This
“Real zombie lovers know that the gore component is by far the greatest outweighing feature,”

Is far different than this
“First of all, how can you even say I am wrong?Name 5 things that define a zombie movie… tell me gore is not on that list “

Mookidd

I am not changing my argument, I am rephrasing it in order for you to see the truth to it. And as i suspected, you can’t tell me that I am wrong because I am right. For me and all the other die hard zombie fans I know, gore is the outweighing feature, a zombie movie with bad gore and special effects gets bad reviews, no matter if the characters were well acted. While a great gorey zombie flick with bad acting at least gets the credits for having great gore. Yea I am making a huge generalization but realistically it is the gore that becomes a defining feature to the genre, followed up by the effects of that gore on society, thus your approach to the human condition, but without the gore-ful element, of having someone chasing you down with their guts hanging out trying to eat your brain, the apocalypse is not as scary…

Reply
Dave

I’ll go so far as to say that gore is a very identifiable part of the genre. However, I think there are some notable zombie stories with minimal gore. The original Night of the Living Dead, for instance, didn’t have a ton of gore.

Let me posit this: over-dependance on gore can be a bad thing. Make a shitty movie with a shitty script and terrible actors, throw in tons of cheap gore, and call it a day That’s how we end up with half the terrible zombie movies out there.

Reply
Mookidd

I knew you would see the light in my argument, however you seem to be subtracting from it by the phrase ‘minimal gore’, they still have gore tho don’t they 😉 And for it’s time, you may remember, that minimal gore you speak of in NOTLD was unheard of and broke down a lot of traditional cinematic conventions!

And I would also agree with you in your postit, cheap gore will never satisfy me!!

Reply
Dave

To clarify my point, I meant that gore is something that can generally be added fairly cheaply. Really good makeup and practical effects, like in TWD last night, are probably significantly more expensive.

You’re right about the minimal gore thing. Like I said, blood and guts are a staple of the genre.

zombiemutts

yeah…you kind of keep your point as you seem to be blurring it everytime you make it.

First you said its the number one point
Then the top five
Now its the quality…?

Anyway…moving on….yes of course it is needed. A zombie movie without gore and violence doesn’t make much sense. My entire point is that IMO, it’s not number 1.

Otherwise we would be seeing a lot more zombie stories that fit the mold of Hostel and Evil Dead. Yes I know Hostel isn’t a zombie movie but you get my point.

If gore and your likeminded friends prefer gore than that is perfectly fine. My entire issue with your original comment is categorizing everyone based on it.

Reply
Mookidd

Anyway, Dave gets me and I sense you get me too but are unwilling to say so on this discussion board, so my point has been made. I just wanted you to see that without gore, like Carbozo said, you just have another drama on your hands. Zombies are the fear factor, they need gore to be that much more scary, from that addition to a story, we see how the characters react in turn to this gore and fear, and there is def a huge underlying theme that combines the gore with the confusion to identify what is human, and who you become as you survive, social contexts and the day to day survival with monsters and its effect on the human condition.. but one thing is certain, without the gore, all you have is “The Happening” and I don’t ever want to watch anything like that again.

Reply
carbozo

Gore is #1 when it comes to zombies. Without gore, anything zombie fails. Other elements that are important; setting, characters, subplots, etc. But without GORE, its just another drama. And I dunno about you, but there are enough dramas out there without gore. If I’m gonna watch a dramatic show about zombies, based on the best zombie lit out there, IT HAD BETTER HAVE LOADS OF FUCKING GORE. As much as they can afford to put in, anyhow. I loved the makeup and sfx especially in this season opener, but fell asleep several times thanks to the boring drama stirred up by comparatively shitty characters.. also, fuck all those commercial breaks. If I wasn’t such a fiend for this show, despite how I think it fails the comic’s legacy, I would just download it the day after it airs. One thing thats cool is, most of the commercials are about zombies, heh.

I hope I get a chance to remake the walking dead series in 15 years. remake it right, with a proper budget, that can follow the comic.

Reply
Dave

To be fair, The Walking Dead does not do character drama at all well. I don’t care for most of these characters. I like Glenn, but a lot of that might be good will from the comic. Loved Mogran in the pilot, but he’s played be Lennie James, who is just amazing.

Rick, Dale, Shane, Lori, etc? They’re all poorly developed archetypes at this point.

COMIC SPOILERS:

So for those of you who have read the comic, do you think Dr. Jenner told Rick that Lori was pregnant at the end of last season? I’d be willing to bet that’s the big secret.

Ya aside from the CDC screw-up, as well as the fact Shane should be dead, I found this episode way better than the ending of the last season.. but 100%.. gushing.. who are these people?

Dave

You know, I kind of like Shane still being alive. Other than that whole attempted-rape thing (which was just insanely stupid and out-of-character) I find him really compelling, perhaps the most compelling character on the show.

Mookidd

I don’t mind Shane, (just that the comics say.. lol) I like him better than Rick too for some reason.. what are your thoughts on Ricks characterization?

Dave

I think the biggest problem with Rick is the casting. Andrew Lincoln looks like a bit of a badass. The Rick from the comic never looked too tough or capable to me, which made his morphing into that role more compelling.

I like Shane more than Rick too. He’s probably the most fleshed out character on the show right now.

Mookidd

Well Zombiemutts, you sure are a condescending douchie bastard aren’t you. Here I thought you weren’t about generalizing and yadda yadda, and now you chime in with that response? So now we aren’t allowed to not like the character of Rick? Or is this not a discussion board.. anyways I was going to say fuck it, and stay subscribed to your shitty fb page and this discussion board, but really why the hell would I want your opinion. You clearly are disillusioned and arrogant, and definitely aren’t that big of a zombie fan. And I know you didn’t read the comic. So I’ll leave you with my buddy Dave (it was nice to meet you by the way), and all the ‘normal folk’ who are too lazy or whatever the hell the reason is to not pick up the comic and see what a good story looks like. moving on… to better things..

Yeah, I’m kind of scratching my head here too.

I doubt Mutts or anyone here meant any offense; just spirited fans talking about zombie stuff.

zombiemutts

I am really trying to see where I talked about Rick.

Is it because of this comment by me?
“We being overly obsessed fans we pick it apart where the normal folks just watch it, enjoy and move on.”

What’s wrong with it? “Normal” fans are the majority of fans when it comes to stuff like this or even to sports. They are the ones who enjoy things…chat for a moment and move on. Obsessed or diehard fans are the ones who seek things out and discuss flaws & improvements. They are few and normal fans are the many.

I was trying not to love Darryl because of Boondok Saints but I have to admit I love him!! I’m gonna hang with him when the ZA rolls around – after Meryl gets lost.

I like the idea of Meryl listening in and stalking them. I’d like to see him make a come back as well as Morgan and his son.

Hah, we’re in the exact opposite boats. I’m loving Darryl despite Boondock Saints (I really don’t get the love for that movie; different strokes and all that). Darryl on TWD is pretty damn cool, especially since he’s become less abrasive as the series progresses.

I totally want to see Morgan and his son come back. Morgan was fantastic, and the actor playing him is great in everything he’s in.
