I will say it's pretty tiring seeing everyone be one hand, one shot, head shot killers though....very very few people in the world could pull off those shots as consistently as they do, but then when it's a fire fight between other groups they can't even hit the broad side of a barn with fully auto machine guns. Then these rifles and even handguns for that matter that just ricochet off filing cabinets and not penetrating vehicles, etc, etc, etc...just not realistic at all. Yeah, I understand zombies=not realistic and all that but I'm ready to see a zombie/survival type show like this that displays what would be more realistic scenarios and outcomes. I understand there are some things that just wouldn't be interesting to watch in a show/movie but there are certainly things they could make more realistic and have it be a much better show.
Forget about the headshots, what about Carl shooting at the new guys from 100+ yards with a shotgun? lol
It also bugs me is how easily they punch through skulls. Skulls seem to be like eggshells for these guys.
suspension of disbelief I guess.
It was a terrific finale (wtf is this mid-season finale stuff?). Love the killing of the governor, although we didnt see him actually die. I wanted Tyreese to buy it in this episode.
I thought for sure that Carol would make an appearance there. Daryl has now taken over as the coolest guy on TV.
I'm curious what the plan is for Carol. I wanted to think that she'd ultimately end up being a villain or antagonist, but I can't even convince myself that it's in the realm of possibilities for the show. I do hope that when they ultimately find another group to clash with, that it isn't just recycled Woodbury/Governor-type storyline. It needs to be kept fresh.
Also, yeah, it is a bit annoying that everybody is Top Shot, and that fists go through skulls of even people who have been walkers for 8 seconds, like they're light bulbs. Also, if Daryl is the coolest guy on TV (and he definitely is), then Carl is the worst character on TV. He has replaced Skylar White, who I even grew to like as a character towards the end of Breaking Bad. From what I understand, there's a daughter character on Homeland who could rival Carl, but for me he's just the absolute worst, and I root for his demise every episode, knowing that it just won't happen.
