On the 4th or so episode of season two. Maybe episode five. Was Daryl born again or something? He goes from a hill-billy, loose cannon bent on finding his brother to a very chill dude, quoting Civil War history, never even mentioning his brother. Sort of dumb though I like this new Daryl more.

This basically sums up my feelings on Daryl. I had that same WTF moment, but he continues to be one of the best characters on the show.

Just found the last episode I watched, the one where Shane goes crazy, kills the one walker, they're corralling in on a choker to prove his point, sort of dumb at the end. After killing the one, he lets all the ones from the barn free and pretty much everyone starts shooting them all. Heck, the cute chick the Asian is banging even gave the nod of approval to go shooting.
Dumb. These semi-wild inconsistencies in character are silly. They could have written that/choreographed it more intelligently. imo.
That said, I REALLY like the show.
Does anyone else who's watched to where I am think that as much as Shane's an *******, and he's a monumental one who I can't wait to die, his beliefs on survival seem much more sensible and pragmatic than anyone else's? That old dude needed to just shoot him in the woods when he had the chance.
Also, what day is this and I've heard no one say they're going to scour the local gun stores for guns and ammo, grocery stores for canned food, or hardware stores for containers to use to fill gas? Like Stoked said, Survival 101.

Jesus, has anyone noticed how foreign peeps are the only cool tough guys left? I looked it up and sure enough, Andrew Lincoln is British. I think Banshee looks cool and bingo, the guy is from New Zealand. Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Russell Crowe, Eric Bana, Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman, Daniel Craig, Henry Cavill, the terrible actor who plays Thor. These guys have that sort of rugged, Old West manliness that is totally void in American actors.
And please spare me the Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Tom Cruise, Leo BS. Americans have become so freakin' soft and we need to start producing some badasses again. I swear, once I reproduce, I'm gonna beat my kid if he even looks at me funny, keep him in the basement if he even turns on a video game, wake his ass up at 5am (a half hour earlier than Russel Wilson's dad made him get up) to workout every morning, and feed him steak three meals a day. If he's been a good boy and gets to eat.

Ugh. I hate Andrea. She and Shane are made for each other and need to just die. She just has that look too. You know what I mean. Like that hot chick we've all been out on a date with look where we couldn't wait for the date to end because she was both selfish, neurotic and annoying.

****, I'm glad I'm going back into this thread. I don't think I'm working this summer. CRAZY working out. European vacation. Tons of quality tv/movies.

Going back, I see people's complaints about it getting too boring or drawn out. I never feel that. I like the drama. The unraveling of emotions. However, I think the show's biggest issue, or at least one of them, is its' lack of a hook. In other words, what are we waiting for? For them to get to Fort Benning? I almost think it would have been better if Rick had never found his wife and kid. If the show was a journey to them. Then again, I've never read the source material and obviously that wouldn't be faithful to it. But yeah, that or having the entire show be Rick trying to eventually go back and save the black dude and his kid from the first couple episodes, who he made a promise to (how many people has he made promises to by the way), would be nice. Some strong, humanity-based hook.

Rick should have let his little kid die. This little tyke's gotten annoying.
