    Once you get used to the zombies/killings, it's smooth sailing. I normally can't stand gore and cover my face but The Walking Dead is my favourite TV show. I started watching it from episode one in December after all my classmates, and a teacher, would spend time talking about it. Maybe three episodes later, I was hooked.

    Lol I used to be terrified of zombies ... But this show is different, it's more about the characters then it is about the people, their relationships (or lack there of) & how they react to this whole mess.

    Happy watching :)

    CrystalGSD, you can find all of the episodes on ProjectFreeTV. That's how I watched maybe a dozen or so episodes because Netflix didn't have all of them. Some of the hosting servers take a long time but some of them are really quick at loading.

    It actually took me a good 4 episodes or so to get hooked on the walking dead (I almost stopped after the first episode) but now it's my favorite current TV show. I also was never one for gore and killing, I hate zombie movies, hate horror movies. But it's not a show about zombies, it's a show about people trying to handle an unimaginable situation.

    I didn't think I'd like it, but my friends got me to watch a few episodes and I got hooked. Excited for the season finale tonight!

    Yes! So is the computer game.

    I keep thinking about watching that one. I finally bought Game of Thrones recently and finished the first season. It's good... but not great for me. Lots of boobs everywhere too, lol.

    Yeah it's not about the gore or grossness ... (Even if it looks like that on the surface) it's about the people & how the handle this ... Or how they don't ... Lol

    Well, the horse part was a little disconcerting. When you first see him I told DH, "I love that horse--he's aesthetically exactly what I want when I go horse shopping!"

    Then BAM!-horse gets eaten by zombies. Other than that it was pretty good. I was sort of wondering why the crows weren't nomming the resting zombies though....

    Yeah the horse/dogs getting eaten or implied of being eaten makes me sad :(.

    I think the crows "know" that the walkers aren't really "dead" in the literal since. Crows are one of the smartest animals & I don't think it would take them long to realize that walkers would eat anything that came within arms reach, so maybe they learned not to **** with them.

    Also it raised enother question in my mind ... What of the horses / animals? We know that ppl turn when bitten but what about animals if hypothetically, they got away after being bitten ... Would they turn as well like a human would? Would they if they died of causes other then a bite/scratch? Does the "virus live in them too?
