The Walking Dead's New Trailer: Things Are Still Sucky (VIDEO)

When The Walking Dead returns on February 10 for the second half of Season 3, I have it on good authority that things will pretty much remain very bad for Rick Grimes and his fellow inmates in Cell Block C. As a professional television watcher, it is my expert opinion that there will be more struggling to survive, possibly some intense fighting, a good chance that crazy people will do crazy things, and I also have a hunch there will be zombies. When you've spent the last several years carefully examining television, these are the theories you come up with.

Also, I saw this trailer:

Yes, really crappy times will remain the norm in the zombiefied South, as The Governor implements his eye-for-a-whole-bunch-of-other-people's-eyes edict and goes after Rick and his party. Along the way, Merle upsets Daryl's ridiculously obsessed fanbase with a knuckle sammy to his brother's face, Andrea still can't keep her clothes on around The Governor, and all of a sudden assault rifles are the weapon of choice. Can't wait!


The Walking Dead returns Sunday, February 10 at 9pm on AMC.

I'm really hoping Andrea comes to her senses soon. If she doesn't she will probably die before season 4.

Gee what a shock Andrea is STILL a two faced treacherous leech of a w**** - If the writers can't think of anything better for her character (And they clearly can't) Why not just kill the b**** and do us all a favour. and to make it worse EVERYONE will likely believe she's still on their side, right up to the point where she gets them killed.

You're not even trying to look at it from her perspective are you?
As far as she knows, she was attacked for a zombie and they left her to die. Would you show any loyalty to people like that?
Now what she did to Michonne was irredeemable.

Her perspective is that they left her to die? That's totally unreasonable, given the circumstances. You seem to be forgetting that they also saved her butt on numerous occasions. With the farm overrun, it was simply impossible to go back. Otherwise, the Greenes probably would have tried to go back home.

If she thinks they left her to die, that's just another reason to hate her.

They did leave her to die though and justified it by saying "there's no way she could have made it."

There is a difference between being left to die and being left for dead. In order to leave someone to die, you have to be aware of the person's status (alive) and location, and choose to leave said person, knowing that doing so will result in the person's death. By your own admission, the group did not know of her status (though to T-Dog, it looked like she'd gone down), and Carol admitted to losing track of her in the chaos. Thus, neither of the prerequisites for the condition were met.

Additionally, you speak as though, they made a decision to leave her. You may recall that they were all separated when they left the farm, not knowing who had made it out? T-Dog was with Lori and Beth, Glenn was with Maggie, Daryl saved Carol, and Rick got Hershel and Carl. Hershel and Rick had given up hope on anyone else making it out alive when the rest of the survivors showed up.

tl;dr version: You are *wrong*, ma'am.

You gotta admire the writers' ability to turn one of the best characters in the book into one of the most reviled ones in the series.

If she hasn't surpassed Lori at this point, I have no respect left for my fellow viewers.

I swear to god if she betrays the prizon group, there will be no redeeming her character, and I have been one of the few Andrea apologists through the first half of season 3.

K, I'm often on your back for lame humor and how it interferes with giving a good thought out review.
But this:
"As a professional television watcher, it is my expert opinion that there will be more struggling to survive, possibly some intense fighting, a good chance that crazy people will do crazy things, and I also have a hunch there will be zombies. When you've spent the last several years carefully examining television, these are the theories you come up with. "

....was funny! Credit when due!

Bet they have something like "TWD Showrunner of the month" at the AMC office.

It would be nice if alot of you quacks would stop whining about stuff not being exactly the same as in the comics. If they did make everything similar you'd be on here bitching about that too.

Also, if it were exactly the same as the books, something else I hate would happen - plot holes being dismissed as "if you read the book, you would know the answer!" When people question plot/character details in movie adaptations, they're often met with the book fans saying it's perfectly clear in the book. Well duh. Adaptations should stand alone.

Yeah I read all the books/play all the games/watch every episode and sorry but if it was just a clone of the comics there really wouldn't be much of a point to it. I love it more BECAUSE I don't already know what's going to happen, it's a new story from this beloved universe where I don't already know the outcome. If you're watching this just to see the story from the comics, go read the comics.

Agreed, I'm a huge fan of WD comics, and I say just watch it for fun and be happy they brought something you love to television. An attempt to be even similar to the comics makes me happy, but people are too cynical

Same thing w/ GOT... Of course the books are much better, but I'm still sooo happy they made it into a tv show!

Rick, why do you still have two hands? Andrea, why are you so stupid? Carl, why are you so annoying? Michone, why weren't you raped and what was your motive for killing a guy's zombie daughter and stabbing his eye out? Daryl, why do you have so many fans considering you're such a one-dimensional character? Hopefully the new showrunner will work closer with Robert Kirkman. Season 2 was too slow, while Season 3 has really rushed through the story, hopefully Season 4 onwards will hit that sweet spot.

Seriously Re: Michonne, due to not being able to depict such things on TV as they did in the comics, she is now the villain in my book. The Gov did not harm her at all yet she goes and does all that shit as if on some vendetta. Go TV Governor!

"what was your motive for killing a guy's zombie daughter and stabbing his eye out?"
- putting her out of her misery, he attacked her.

I agree that in the comics it made more sense why Michonne took revenge on the Governor, but she is in no way the villain in the situation, the Governor sent Merle and co. to kill her. So I say he is the villain. I agree with Ben one handed Rick would only be a burden to the show, but their are rumors that Rick gets hurt later in the season, so he could hypothetically still lose his hand, but I'm hoping against it.

Yeah, it's not like he sent four men to murder her, is it? Oh...

...and thank God Rick still has two hands, there's literally nothing positive that could come from cutting off one of his hands, in the show All it does is back them into a lot of corners, with regard to what he can and can't do. Something they don't really have to worry about in the comic-book medium as much. People need to stop thinking things need to happen, just 'cos they happened in the comic. They're picking and choosing what to include, which is the right way to go.

I'll watch the rest of the season, but after that I'm done with this show. I honestly doubt this new showrunner guy is gonna be even half as good as Mazzara was.

ROFL. I hear Fox is looking for some new exec's. You sound perfect for the role.

It's disappointing, but tune it to at least half of the next season before giving final judgement. If you don't, there's a chance you'll be proved wrong.

It bugs me that The Governor's eye patch is on the wrong side. In the comics/first half of s3, they show he injured his left eye. Has the patch/gauze on his right eye. Is this why Glen Mazzarra was fired?

Whichever eye was injured in the comics is completely irrelevant, but I invite you to go look at the Gov's pre-hiatus eye injury again. There's no continuity error.
Besides, even if one of the effects crew mistakenly tried to put the patch on the wrong eye, don't you think the actor himself would say something?

The actor didn't say anything.

heh! your 'proof' is laughable. If you honestly believe they got the wrong eye, simply go look at the old episodes & the new trailer & don't rely on some reversed pic

As if they'd mess up something like that. Even a shitty college production wouldn't make an oversight like that. In that top picture you've posted, that's his reflection. He's looking into a mirror as he's cleaning his eye or something along those lines.
