DC Sports: The Curse Is Real
The thing people have to remember is The Walking Dead is not a 2 hour movie who's purpose is to go by a certain structure and pack a bunch of action into before the climax.
The Walking Dead is supposed to tell the story of the long term effects and outcomes of living in the world of a zombie apocalypse. Every single day isn't going to be filled with battles and fights or even zombie killing. Hell, the show is much more fast paced than the comic. In the comic, without giving away anything major, the Prison had it's own focus and story arcs as far as what happened once the group got there before Woodbury/The Governor even came into the picture, whereas the show has made it a parallel storyline that has almost left the Prison itself from becoming anything than a place to sleep.
I think what happens is each week we are only really getting about 42 mins of new show, taking commercials into account. So it feels like "nothing happened" My advice is to go back and watch Season 2 on netflix, and marathon it out in a day or two and I think you will see it wasn't really as slow as you thought it was when you were waiting a week between episodes followed by the mid-seaosn break to delay things even further..

I dunno man...I understand they've got to set everything up, continue developing characters, etc...but I am one of those folks that's starting to get a little annoyed by all the build up already. I mean can you blame some of us for having such high expectations for blood after what they did in season 1? Every single one of the 6 episodes felt like a movie. NON-STOP action, several different locations every episode, constantly on the move. Pure chaos. I understand that at the time of making season 1, the writers/developers had no idea how successful the show would be so they tossed a lot into every one of the 6 episodes.
I'd like to see a little more killin' and a lot fewer "filler" scenes. Every episode of season 1 had me on the edge of my seat with excitement, where as seasons 2 and 3 have been moving along at a snail's pace. Season 1 we got a good 20-25 minutes of "action" every episode, where as seasons 2 and 3 we get maybe 10.
For this season to be moving along so slowly now, I just hope the "pay off" is worth it. All this tension and drama they've been building and with several episodes being pretty slow and uneventful, I hope the last 4 episodes leave me feeling satisfied.
aren't there 5 more episodes this season? I thought it was a 16 episode season
I don't get it. People complain when shows have poor character or story development, but also when shows take the time to develop characters and storylines....
I accidentally read a spoiler about next week's episode on roamersandlurkers.com . My oh my, are things going to be crazy.
i haven't seen Jumbo post in here in a while which is strange
LOL..Oh my Morgan has lost his damn mind
I kinda like crazy Morgan, shame he chose to stay behind.

I'm real disappointed Morgan didn't go back to the prison. I wonder if that is the last time we will see him on the show
They may get run out of the prison and fall back to Morgan.
Ok, major wtf moment, Morgan has an arsenal and they leave with a couple bags, like party favors or those gift bags they hand out on Oscar night? I'm loadin' up, Governor McSquint is training an army, I want a LOT of lead to throw downrange.
So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish
looked they had several bags out at the SUV,needed ammo more than more guns....and people
