OT: Walking Dead Season 3 trailer; Discuss

Submitted by Crime Reporter on July 14th, 2012 at 1:32 PM

Title says it all. The Internets are abuzz with the new four-minute trailer for season 3 of The Walking Dead.

Although I have not read the comics, I am excited to see Woodbury and the Governor. Check out the surprise at the end of the trailer. Enjoy and discuss.

EDIT: SPOILERS for series up to this point discussed below.

Getting the feeling that Tyrese is just going to be left out of the show, which would be a strange omission. Who knows maybe they'll work him in like they should but it seems that T-Dog is his shitty replacement. If you have time this summer you should read the comics, they're outstanding, there are plenty of torrents online where you can read them for free.

but I thought season 2 was a little underwhelming. I felt like there were times when I wouldn't see a freaking zombie for 2 episodes. I know they were building storylines, but I was a little disappointed with the suspense it brought. Hopefully the new season will pull me back in.

I thought season 2 was superb, especially the last three episodes. The battle for the farm was some of the most tense and exciting TV I have ever seen. I think some people forget that zombie movies/shows are not really about zombies at all, but how the humans handle the grim situation they are in and how the situation can determine who is good and who is evil. Zombies are never the antagonist, its always a human or the human element. That being said, I can't wait for the new season to start.

And, on a side note, Breaking Bad starts tomorrow, so that will whet my appetite until the fall.

Any speculation on that military aircraft and where it may of came from? Fort Benning, Stewart and Gordon are all within flying distance of a Huey to Atlanta proper.

If they came from a military base there probably are more military support out there resisting.

I can't wait for this season to start! Hopefully they are true to the books when it comes to the prison.... If they are... it's gonna be good.

Kirkman said that the group would not be as safe in the prison as they are in the comic, whatever that means.  I've never read the comic.

I've been wondering about that helicopter for a while now.  Is that the same one that we see every so often?

And Woodbury looks interesting...and very safe.

The trailer looks amazing. I have read all of the comics and so far from what I can see on the trailer, the show will be very different from the comics. In my opinion this is a good thing as it will keep people, who have read the comics, guessing on what will happen next.


July 14th, 2012 at 4:14 PM ^

I've come very late to the series, last month in fact, and still haven't seen the first season or read the comics. Why is it that only head shots kill zombies? And this is picky I know, but isn't the solution to go somewhere no one else lived before the plague broke out? If zombies are made up of former people, then can't the surivivors go into country where no towns existed before, build a new town, and be relatively safe? Sorry, I'm not up on zombie lore.


July 14th, 2012 at 4:20 PM ^

Its always been that head shots kill Zombies because they are already dead, but their brain activity allows their motor skills to still be active. Kill the brain, you kill the zombie.

And I think the last episode kind of showed why you can't get away, because those hordes of zombies will continue to wander in any direction that they hear noise. That is how they found their way through the woods and onto the farm in the first place.


July 14th, 2012 at 4:34 PM ^

I actually missed half of the last episode unavoidably, getting back to it in the last 10 minutes. bummer. My new solution after your explanation: walled city. But I suppose after a few weeks there'd be thousands of zombies camped outside the walls and you'd never get out again. Damn zombies.


July 14th, 2012 at 9:38 PM ^

The question is, where in this day and age are there no people? Antarctica? You wouldn't know, but he's basically said there's more zombies than people now. And if you could find one remote location....how do you get there? Feed, and fortify yourself? Of course, as the end of the season showed whenever someone dies, they become a zombie, so you can never be away from them. Now, you could create a ritual where you take care of the dead, no one lives together in case someone has a heart attack in their sleep, and take all sorts of other precautions, but they're way to early into the apocalypse to do all that. They just found out that death = zombie. And one little slip up, and you've infected this "safe haven."

I always wondered about the brain partially functioning theory. If the brain is partially working and all other organs are dead, why do the zombies always try to eat people? if their stomach is no longer working shouldn't they not feel hungry? Or is their brain somehow making them think they are always hungry causing them to always want to feed? If thats the case why arn't there a ton of really fat zombies walking around! And where do they poop!!

First, she drove off in the car without telling anyone and then crashes like a dummy.

Later, she tells Rick that Shane "needs to be stopped," but becomes angry when Rick admits to killing him before he himself was killed.

I'm just waiting for the writers to give T-Dog some lines or kill him off.

I absolutely love this show.  Making do this summer watching Falling Skies, which is good, but not at the level of Walking Dead.  The whole "thriving town" scenario looks interesting!

AMC is streaming the premier for Dish customers. I'm just not sure if I want to watch the first episode and hope one of them blinks by next week... Or just wait until I'm sure I can watch them all on DVD.

Be sure to complain to Dish (if you haven't already). If nothing else you should be able to get a few months of HBO/SHO for free and $10 a month off of your bill for a year.

Man the whole farm run of episodes was sucky, but this trailer is freakin awesome.  I love the comic series and without giving anything away I will only put forward that I enjoy the comic storyline much better.  Well worth the time (and money) to read.

Cool to see Merle back again.

How does network TV compete with these shows.  Breaking Bad, Walkind Dead, all the great HBO series.
