They had the little bit of interpersonal drama but not over done, little bit of love interest between Daryl and Carol. You can tell because they put more eye makeup on Carol. A little bit of arguing between Maggie and Hershel but none of this stuff dragged the pace.
Dale is such a whiny douchebag in the show compared to the comic, some of the stuff he is saying is true but who cares? He thinks he is going to hide their guns when theoretically a herd of the “walkers” could show up at any time, how smart is that? I know Shane is supposed to be bad and all but tell the truth it made you feel good when he punked Dale and took the guns. In fact I hate to say it but Shane is becoming one of my favorite characters. Shane’s happening, making moves, living large. He may have knocked up his best friend’s wife and murdered Otis but those are small things in this new world. Now he is taking command, sleeping with Andrea, make Dale wet his pants. No one else is doing anything really. What’s T-dog been up to … jack shit. Without Shane this show would be boring as hell.
How about Rick and dumbass Hershcel pulling the zombies out of the creek with the dog catcher sticks? For one the zombies didn’t look deep enough to get stuck, they were just kind of standing there swaying around. Two what dumbass would look at those snarling nasty things and think, let’s try to help them? Come on, I know in the comic Hershel keep his family in the barn but going out and catching strangers in coveralls. For what? To feed them chickens?
The finale was great Shane re-armed everyone and then they shot the shit out of the zombies in the barn. In the comic the zombies escaped and pretty much the same thing happened but since they escaped Herschel had to recognize that what he is doing is way too unsafe. Then finally there was Sofia appearing possibly the best scene in the second season so far. Looking forward to watching the rest of season, which I guess is delayed until Febuary which is total bullshit, in my opinion.
