 Darryl Dixon & T Dog = irrelevant.  They aren't in the books so kill them quick please.  Where's Tyrese?!!! WTF???

 Honestly, comparing a great and well thought out show like The Walking Dead to forgettable crap like Lost (which came out a year AFTER the comic for The Walking Dead hit newstands) is a travesty. The Walking Dead follows more closely to the early Romero zombie movies (Kirkman has said so himself) in tone, and takes place in a world were zombies or even the word 'zombie' hasn't been thought up in books or pop culture (again, from Kirkman himself in the live talk show that takes place right after the second airing of Sunday's episode). Also, Kirkman actually has an ending in mind for The Walking Dead (again, from the talk show on Sunday, and from numerous Kirkman interviews), unlike Lost.

Lost was a bunch of writers throwing crap at the wall and thinking that whatever was cool sounding would make it into that week's episode. There was no thought out storyline for Lost. So please,stop comparing the infinitely better (just look at the ratings for proof) Walking Dead to the hackneyed Lost. 

With that said, the part of the episode that I enjoyed the most was how T Dog brings up the whole racism thing again, and Daryl (the biggest redneck of the bunch) saves T Dog's life again with antibiotics. Daryl does it so non-chalantly because T Dog is a member of the group, and not because of any other reason (plus he never heard T Dog's rant about racism). That was a nice little bit of character reveal.

My only problem with this episode is the tactics Shane used to go inside the FEMA trailer. He should've let the fat guy go get all the equipment since he knew what was needed while he kept distracting the zombies. If it went to hell he would be capable of outrunning them, getting the truck and picking up the other guy. You don't corner yourself on purpose, I'd never follow him anywhere. Glenn, the fast food delivery boy, has better tactical sense

As for last weeks show and the hunter, jedibanner is right. The kid is behind the deer from the hunter's view, he is small and moving very slowly which all made him hard if not impossible to see. Then take into account the status of the world and you're not necessarily watching out for hunters or campers when hunting your next meal.

B for this episode as well.  I really like the subtle changes they have made to the show to flesh out what is really a rather quick read.  Go Darryl!  I have to disagree one some posts.  Showing Rick carrying Carl and having to shift his weight as he's running with dead weight was scary and heartbreaking at the same time.  For non-book affiliates it adds a level of tension and dread, will Carl wake up in his arms to try and bite him, will Rick make it.  It was well done bravo!  I agree with the review Lori was a bit too bitchy for a Vet doctor trying to save Carl's life, his comeback was really good.  I also had the same beef with the med truck sequence... take more flairs IDIOT... gosh...

Side note... We need a supernatural review post... This season has exceeded season six in every way, shape and form.  This weekend's ode to slasher films looks to be a hoot.

Also, anyone watching American Horror Story... wow some really creepy stuff there.  I'm diggin it.
