It was a good season premier, and was good to get a chance to PVR and re-watch some of the earlier episodes to recall what happened again. The one thing I noticed with S02EP01 was the bar was raised around the degree of gore in the series. Yes, I know it's to be expected and yes I can handle it. But there were a couple of scenes last night that I have to admit did make my stomach turn a bit (rare for me)! Those who watched will know what scenes I am talking about...

I liked the season 2 premiere. The feeling of dread when they realize a hoard is coming upon them is well portrayed.

Not for the faint of heart though if you can't stomach gore.

Some of it was B movie schlockfest that made me laugh, but the zombies looked pretty good. The praying in the church was kind of silly.

A bit disappointed until the ending got my attention. Like some other series it has a lot to live up to in its second season. Not sure that it will.

Enjoyed it but agree that the sherriff praying in the church bit seemed awfully forced and silly.
And not that I would wish getting eaten by a zombie on anyone, but that stupid girl almost deserves to be left behind. First she gets out from under the vehicle before she was told it was safe to do so, then she totally ignores what she was told about staying put by the river.
The ending though, was fabulous. Really looking forward to next week.

I know how silly it sounds but my biggest pet peeve right now is that fact Rick is still wearing his uniform. There maybe a reason explained in the graphic novel or I can play armchair psychiatrist and come up with something but for now it just annoys the hell out of me.

It will be interesting to see how long that blood stain on his shirt is there.

I'm getting tired of this missing girl/boy got shot story line. I hope they wrap this up quickly and move on. This has been dragging on long enough. This season has been long and slow so far. They haven't moved at all!

Wouldn't the walkers go after a herd of cows?

I agree, this season is moving along quite slowly and wish they could move along. I rarely get impatient with shows, but this time I needed to download the WD comic series just to satisfy my curiosity. So far they have covered the first 10 comics of what is currently a ~90+ comic series so lots of storyline still to come. They don't follow the comics exactly but there are many close resemblances.
