Walking Dead - I gotta know





So we haven't had a general "Walking Dead" discussion in a while now. I know I used to bash the show pretty heavily because of all the stupid/comical stuff the characters did. Really the first few seasons were like some kind of horror story Greek-Tragicomedy in my opinion. I expected to see Laurel and Hardy stumbling around doing the baseball routine while Rick cried somewhere during any episode. Yet I must admit the show is beginning to grow on me again.

I still hope Carl get's eaten BTW....SOON and Rick was so wishy washy stupid I almost stopped watching to be honest.

This season however has been better although it took almost the entire season before I could watch a full episode with Rick and Carl in it but this created even more of a problem for me.

A few weeks ago the wife and I were discussing a rumor she had read on one of her television forums that they tried to give Carrol the axe but so many fans were up in arms about it they decided to let her stay. This brought us to a discussion of who our favorite characters were and I think I completely floored my wife when I told her my favorite character was Michonne.

I actually kinda like the other Black chick character too if you get right down to it.

Of all the characters those two seem to be the most level headed and survivor oriented. Plus Michonne is just bad ass and smart enough to see the zombies main weakness. Now if she had just armored up like Glen a little bit (Only in something a bit more visually appealing than plastic armor) I would declare her the zombie apocalypse queen of all times.

Honestly I think my wife was expecting me to pick that new little Hispanic chick in the short shorts as my favorite but my choice has nothing to do with gender or looks.

So because I am actually quite interested tell us your favorite character(s) and why.

I really want to know....

Keep Prepping Everyone!!!

  1. Now that is one that I have never seen. The closest I ever got to the walking dead was being in line at walmart. That is the one place where a gang of thieves would not have to yell "nobody move" as the only thing moving are spiders building webs on the cashiers.

  2. The whole series has been a hit or miss with me. I missed so much that I'm lost. I saw some of this season but when its on, I'm also online which doesn't help. LOL Did you see the area in the "SAFE PLACE" that had the pile of bones?? Short of a butchers shop. It looks like they want folks to come so they can use folks for cannibalism??

    1. Rob - YA Terminus has long been suspected byt he fans as being a cannibal cult place. There was a similar place in the comics that were cannibals which is where theya re getting it from.

  3. Darryl,cause he rides a Harley , can track, shoots a crossbow or just spears in em in the head with a bolt. Rick's ok working out issues since start of show. Last night showed he Can be an Animal to save family and friends. Michonne,who wouldn't like a hot chick with a katana, she cut off those 2 zombies jaws and nails and made them slave pack animals,whats not to like? Honestly I like em all. Kinda dig the show period even though i missed a lot of this season.

    1. China - Darryl is OK I guess a bit moody for a guy in my opinion though. Rick well I can't see any OK-ness at working out issues looks to me most of the time he was causing them when he should have been stopping them before they started.

      Michonne is smart though, her looks one way or another make no difference to me physically I don't find her attractive at all really but she does know how to think.

      Ya I read they were going to DC next season as well.

  4. Virgil. Or maybe Railroad Bed Zombie, the one that fell thru the crack between the rails. Well really it's a toss-up. I did like the Once Female Crawling Corpse in the first episode. It had style....

    1. Stephen - I was kinda partial to the hanging zombie although this last episode had that road pancake zombie that was kinda interesting.

  5. Daryl of course, us dumb-ass rednecks will have to stick together when the Zombies come.

    1. SD - I could get along with Darryl no doubt but damn he is more moody than a teenage girl sometimes.

  6. I'll take the unpopular stance that Shane was my favorite character. He was a pure survivor. Now, if he could just get his head around the whole community aspect of surviving a SHTF scenario.

  7. Michonne is good but Darryl gets my vote. Survival smart, moody but with a streak of something that just gets my attention :-)))) Just watched the final episode here - Terminus is weird!!!!
