  • Hershels secret

    How he all of a sudden turned later becoming a trusted friend to the actor is so bad a 5 year old could do better.

  • Take Off Your High Heels

    This episode pretty much concreted that Darryl and Glenn are my favorites. Lory deserves everything she's got coming. Rick is too black and white. Andrea's a loose cannon. The people they're staying with are obviously hypocrites/crazy/etc. and need to be left behind as soon as possible. I had this feeling that we would see Murl before we saw Sophia again as well, and that was spot-on. Kind of a meh episode plot-wise, but focused on characters who are worthwhile.moreless
  • 2x05 - Chupacabra

    The more I watch this show the more I think that Daryl really needs to leave this group. What is he getting out of sticking with them? I can't help but think his survival chances would go up if he ditches the group.
  • Can't stand Andrea!

    Can't stand Andrea's gimme a gun, gimme a gun, like a kid wanting a toy. Then she finally gets her hands on one and hits daryll and they keep giving her guns. Her attitude and story line just don't do it for me. Over all the episode was okay but Andrea's burning desire to get her hands on a gun and shoot something really annoy me.

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Glenn: Do you think Andrea's on her period? I'm only asking cause it's like all the woman are acting really weird and I read somewhere that when women spend a lot of time together their cycles line up and they all get super crazy hormonal at the same time.
      Dale: Uh, I'm gonna advise you to keep that theory to yourself.

    • Glenn: (smiling confidently) You know, we still have eleven condoms
      Maggie: You see eleven condoms, I see eleven minutes of my life I'm never getting back.

    • Rick: (referring to the Chupacabra) So you believe in a blood-sucking dog?
      Daryl: You believe in dead people walkin' around?

    • Merle: Ain't nobody ever really cared about you except for me, little brother, and there ain't nobody that ever will.
