|Daryl saves the little fat kid|
THE WALKING DEAD 's second episode aired tonight and the writers have introduced a killer swine flu element in the post apocalyptic world. Characters have been developed, fleshed out and changed, new characters added and within the narrative there seem to feature a " new way of seeing the world" which kind of fits a life 2 years after " everything went bad" , so to speak.....where the new community in the prison are rewriting what's normal and what's not.
The formally mousey Carol ( Melissa Mcbride) is now a strong warrior matriarch that wants to teach kids to kill if they need to....Michonne ( who has developed into some Captain Ahab-esque character) is shown to have a past that hints at the loss of a child and Daryl is now a much respected member of the prison community council , a position of standing and respectability he never had in his previous redneck existence
I am interested to see where the writers take this zombie disaster movie....it's still as exciting as it has always been, it still has the ability to wrong foot it's audience and it still features some fascinating and compelling characters but I do hope it's not reduced to a pure " whose gonna die next" kind of video game.....
