My quick opinion of episode 2 of THE WALKING DEAD “GUTS”
Honestly, WOW. This show just continues to get better and better and better. Once again, Darabont proves he is a master of his craft. The swooping camera that descends on the tank in the middle of town showcasing the zombie horde and our fearful, yet determined hero Rick was fantastic. This show looks better than most films, that is just a fact. The liberties taken with the story are many but at the same time pace the show so well that make it feel like it’s own entity and more than just an adaptation. Rick’s back and forth with Merle Dixon on the roof was extremely well done and showed that our hero has come to grips with this new world but will show his cop nature and step up when needed. I smiled at the moment where he stood back to recognize the corpse they used for their “paint”. It was such an earnest and touching moment that shows character and just makes you go ” I LOVE YOU RICK”. The show is not all exposition, it can still give a fierce punch when needed, and this episode once again gave us some fantastic zombie killing action. The rain scene I blogged was an especially fantastic treat. All in all, I am so happy with this show. I love it. Alliluvswalkingdead!
