This show may be too much for me. I really like the premise of it, and I want to stick it out, but the zombies are just too freaky!

I really like Darryl. I expect that they'll bring back the bit about the brother at some point.

DS asked me why the show's writers are making all of the female characters so annoying. Good question!

I am the worlds biggest chicken when it comes to horror movies. I don't watch them. However, when it came to zombie movies, there was that curiosity that I just can't kick. It is like a train wreck and I have to watch. For a tv show, the make up is amazingly realistic. During the entire episode, I spend my time holding my breath and sitting on the edge of my seat. My son laughs at me. I might be afraid to walk to the bathroom and sleep with one eye open that night, but I have to watch the show. I even got my mom hooked on the show and she has never watched anything worse than an old dracula movie.

I LOVE zombies! I usually just watch them like any other show or movie...but I was seriously on the edge of my seat last night during the "herd" scene!

Wasn't that super scary?!

It was interesting that one of the characters wondered why they were in that herd. Hmmmm....

I agree, Darryl's great, as a character that's not in the original comics, he's one I really like. They did a good job including him into the TV series. Glenn and Dale are also great.

As for the female characters, I agree. Especially Andrea, they made her so immature and annoying.

Anybody else thinks Carol looks like Jamie Lee Curtis? Every time I see her, especially in the last episode.

Nope. No word on Sofia. She's still missing. It ended with Carl getting shot!

I'm fine with horror movies. I can handle ghosts, demons, vampires, werewolves...You name it and I have no problem with it. I never really cared for zombies, but they didn't really bother, me, so to speak. I didn't like looking at them because of the creepy, ick factor, but they're not real and there's no chance of them ever being real, right?

Last season screwed that up for me....The scene where the doctor explained how they became zombies.....that really messed up my zombie free world! I can't believe they gave a scientific, plausible reason for a person to turn into A ZOMBIE.....HOLY CRAP!!!

Now I sit with my legs up against my chest and jump at every little thing during the show. During last nights show my Schnauzer decided to start barking at some, unheard to me, noise and I thought I was going to have a heart attack! She scared me so badly I literally jumped! My husband was laughing so hard....The jerk.

I'm the same way. I can normally handle scary movies. I can watch them late at night and still sleep like a baby. But there's something about this show. I jump even when they are building up to something scary. It's well written, well scripted and the zombies are so freaky! I love this show, but I can only handle daytime viewing!

I usually have a pillow in my arms so I can use it to shield my eyes when needed.

Or if I have a hooded shirt, I use the hood to block my view. I only had to do it twice last night. One of the times is when Carl was approaching the deer… It was so suspicious that they were paying so much attention to him walking slowly towards it.
