Unless his name is fucking Luke Skywalker and got his hand cut off by a lightsaber, I won't buy it.
I know I'm being bitchy about this fictional story.

It just baffled me when they showed his hand cut off. I know they said stuff about the saw being too blunt to cut through the cuffs.
But I think bones are stronger then aluminum. Especially when you're cutting yourself, which would induce such horrific pain that you would loose a lot of strength and focus to actually push through said bones.
And did you see the muscles on that guy? He must be from the Saw universe to pull that shit off.

Also, the moment your hand is cut off you instantly gush out a shitload of squirting blood.
Basically everything your body is pushing through the veins is flooding out at that moment. Sure you can put a silly tourniquet on it, and stop the bleeding in some magical D.I.Y. way.
But it would've taken away a lot of his strength loosing all that delicious blood.

After he magically stopped the bleeding, with stuff from a toolbox, he then somehow managed to get downstairs and fight 2 zombies with his bare hands and a wrench.
And all this with loosing a fuckton of blood.

My bullshit meter says "DAMIEN STOP WATCHING THIS SHOW."
But my jizzmeter says "Damien, it will get better. Don't worry, it's only the first season"

There is no rationality in zombieland.

I should make an animation on how silly The Walking Dead is.

Bones are more brittle. When force is applied, aluminum bends. Bone breaks.

Bone's composition also allows it to be sawed through easily. It is also well within the range of possibility that he could do that without passing out. Some people have a very high tolerance to pain, not to mention adrenaline will numb the feeling some.

He apparently knew what he was doing when he made a tourniquet and cauterized it. When pirates were shot, they would take a swig of whiskey, bite a bullet, and cut the wounded limb off. They would then press on it with a hot iron. That has been common practice for centuries.

Omg this show just got ten times more awesome.

Ok on the adrenaline part. I'm not saying it's entirely impossible.
Just very far fetched.

Damn those pirate rednecks and there superior power.
True though. If you are one of the survivors in a zombie apocalypse, you are one tough motherfucker.

Episode 5 (Wildfire) was excellent IMO. The scene of Amy and Andrea was very emotional and I don't think it was filler (like most of you). I couldn't care less about that mexican guy and his family, so I'm glad they're gone. And their arrival to the CDC, that was great, that scientist must be a mad man, I bet he and Daryl won't get along.
Anyway, great episode, and next week is season finale, it's going to be epic, now we have to wait how long til next season premieres.

I'm pissed that the show doesn't follow the GN, but the awesomeness of it makes up for that.

Hmm.

The two best episodes were written by the guy who'll be writing the scripts from now on. I have no problems with this.

Just remember that if it followed the comics then any of the original fans would get bored watching it in a way because they know what's going to happen... I was upset at first that it was so different, but I think they're doing a great job of making it their own story so far.
Characters are still dying off in the same order, but everything else is different... There was no disease control place in the comics which made it surprising for me, if they were to follow the comics I would be able to know the entire series as I get every new released comic a month.


Yeah, whatever.

Based on the past 3 episodes, that's a good thing.

The arrival was very tense, I liked how urgent Rick got when the GEEKS showed up and it was all dark and that scientist is all like moving his camera and Rick is all shouting up in this bitch.

But, the main thing the characters have been discussing, risking their lives over, people dying because of, is guns. Guns and ammo. Yet they run past various rifles and pistols and they don't even consider picking one up, asking to pick one up or even acknowledge them at all.

The two best episodes were written by the guy who'll be writing the scripts from now on. I have no problems with this.

And Episode 4 (Vatos) was written by Robert Kirkman, the creator of the comic book, and he's consider a freelance writter, not staff writter, so that's a good thing. Frank Darabont has a clear vision of what way he wants to take with the show, so at the end it's a good thing.
I'm excited about the season finale, but I'm also worried because rumors said that second season will premiere on HALLOWEEN 2011!!!!!!!!!!!, it's a long time, I can't wait that long!!!!!!!!!!

No, it was defanatly a filler episode... I got down to the last 5 minutes of it, showed the time, and shouted out " What the fuck? Nothing even happened!!! " ... Because that's exactly what happened... nothing really worth while.


Not only do I not know what's going on, I wouldn't know what to do about it if I did.

Have you never heard of character development? Why should I care about danger if the characters are undeveloped?

The Walking Dead is a fundamentally human story set against a backdrop of zombies. Character development is the point of the show. Action is just a tool to encourage character development.

its a bigger deal than the hand thing you were bitching about.

anyways, i rewatched the end scene where they were at the cdc and the soldiers and zombies are all dead and i assumed the they got overrun by zombies. but why are there no mangled eaten bodies lying in pools of their blood, its as if they all collapsed. i'm calling that the mad cdc guy is alone because he accidentally released a virus or something.

The Walking Dead is a fundamentally human story set against a backdrop of zombies. Character development is the point of the show. Action is just a tool to encourage character development.

This is all true. This show isn't meant to be a horror and it isn't meant to be an action show. It is actually a drama and the show is about seeing the people struggle to keep their humanity in this world. You can tell that many characters have already been changed and their morals are breaking down.

Remember, they implied that he wrapped a tourniquet around the wound and soon after used that stove to cauterize it. So, it can me assumed that he acted quickly and didn't lose THAT much blood.

I was so pissed after episode 3 when they just left it with the cut off hand AND the hacksaw next to the chains..but straight after they explained in detail how he survived and why the chains weren't cut.

Its like the writers are baiting ragers at some points.

I still think Murrel is alive and going to find them. You know how Rick left that car with a note saying they went to the CDC? Morgen is either dead, or not receiving their calls, so I think Murrel's going to find the car and the note when he drives back to camp. Then he's going to head to the CDC and probably mess something up.

Series has been shit since the second episode.

I'll keep watching in case the new writing staff they've hired after firing the original lot can do any better. It's a decent concept, the execution has just been laughable.
