Hmmmn...still not feeling it to be honest.  It seems fairly non-special so far.  Reminds me of eighties V, though not in a good way.  The scripts have been really uninspired with plenty of prosaic dialogue.  Like Ricky Gervais, Darabont seems to have made a show all about extras.  There's been little of interest in the foregrounding.

I have a feeling this one needs time to build. Give it a bit more time. I've only seen the one episode so far (in fact all I've managed to watch in the last month is the first episode, the new Misfits, two of Pillars of the Earth and one Merlin ).

I think this one will end up becoming something I'm going to end up having to shut the pub for a day for just to catch up!

Friday night is repeated on Sunday night. Not sure if it's on again during the week.

I really liked this weeks episode.

***SPOILERS IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT***


Nice to see him meet up with his Mrs and son. Turns out his mate is a bit of a tit sin't he? Although I got the feeling he was a bit of a thug/bully in last weeks episode.

Aye, good episode, emotional reunion. Be interesting to see what happens with the Rooker character.

I'd like to know why he cut off his hand instead of sawing through the handcuffs.

Police issue handcuffs are very tough and not easy to saw through, especially with a dull and rusty saw. Plus the guy was kind of in a hurry.

But the guys who came to rescue him were sure they could get through them with bolt cutters?

Skin and bone is still a lot quicker to get through than high-tensile steel.  And you don't know just how much time may have been a factor here   Though the door was still padlocked when they arrived - hmm,  maybe it was a midget geek that was the immediate threat...And bolt-cutters apply a hell of a lot more force than a hacksaw would - those things could have probably coped with the big chain on the door, never mind the handcuff chain!

So I was happy with the pace at first...now its seeming very slow. In 3 episodes he woke up, met a dude, went to the city, met some more dudes and went back to the city.

Me too, though I was cheering him on when he slapped around that guy being an arse to his wife.

Fair enough the guy deserved a hiding but do you not think he went a bit OTT? I think he was a wee bit angry that he'd been binned and took it out on the wife beater and kind of lost the plot. Showed a severe lack of control.

I agree, he took it too far. And it probably won't help the wife out either, considering she went right back to his side. I wonder if he'll take it out on her?

that last episode was immense!

The sense of foreboding is just off the scale. Last week where they were playing in the water and this week in the boat - you just felt something was going to come out of nowhere. The same with Jim on the hill in the distance - was expecting for him to get taken down.

The ending was brilliant - gory, intense and frantic. Brilliant stuff.

Couple of questions though.

where is Erle? Why didnt Rick and co just hotwire another car to get back to camp?

I actually managed to catch this episode. I thought it was decent. Didn't blow me away. The sisters speaking about thier dad was so cheesey! Intentionally so? I've only seen the first episode so missed the last two?  So I'm willing to forgive it for certain thing's.

As it's repeated I'll have to make sure I'll keep right up to date with it now.

The first episode was excellent, and promised some very intresting characters and subplots, however the next two just didn't live up to it, and after awhile it loses its shock factor.

But this weeks was much better, a side from the silly gang storyline, it was very gripping. I like the way the show opened with the two sisters in the boat. It planted a seed in your mind than there was something big coming about them, but then you sort of forgot about it as things moved along, and it made it all the more shocking when the younger one did die. Two more to go!

only 2 more to go? probably stick with it, then, although i've been rather disappointed thus far. The defusing of a tense situation in the latest episode with the appearance of great-aunt Abuela didn't help - I thought I was watching an episode of Dora the Explorer

That was a CRACKING episode. I've been sceptical of the show thus far (liked but not loved it), but that all turned around with this episode. Loved it, I'm now officially hooked.

I notice this episode was written by the original author of the comic books too. Hope he wrote next week's as well!

The last ep was, for me anyways, a total misfire, When your run is six episodes you have to make every minute count. The show diid this up until now, but 17 minutes of one character bleating over the deat of another was too much...

There was also a massive plot hole, when the Caravan breaks down, 10 mins later it;s good to go>

Looking forward to the end, it;s been really good so far but this week missed by a mile....

No, when the van breaks down, Shane spots a garage further down the road and goes to investigate. It's fairly reasonable to assume he finds what they need, but no need to actually show them fixing the van ("ohmigod, did you feel the tension when they were fixing that broken hose???") when the drama is centering around them having to leave Jim.
