The Walking Dead 4.07 "Dead Weight" - RATE IT!

Postby Chris » Sun Nov 24, 2013 6:53 pm

Last week: 5.72

Season 4:
4.01 "30 Days Without An Incident" - 6.16
4.02 "Infected" - 7.45
4.03 "Isolation" - 7.31
4.04 "Indifference" - 6.85
4.05 "Internment" - 7.88
4.06 "Live Bait" - 5.72


"Dead Weight"

The beginnings of a potentially horrifying chapter unfold with the establishment of a camp outside the prison; the possibility of the group finding peace amongst their savage new existence drives them to consider the idea of welcoming new members.

Well, I guess hero Governor didn't last long. It was interesting to see how quickly he was able to rebuild his empire and seize power. Alvarez from Oz is really getting around lately, wasn't he just on an episode of Person of Interest? Looks like we'll finally get some real action in the mid-season finale.

I gave this episode a 5 because while there were a few cool things that happened I just don't give a shit about the Governor or Brian or whatever you want to call him. I think he should have died last season. He is just getting more and more fucked up and the reasoning for what he does is more and more fucked up. I mean fucking christ he used to keep the dead heads in tanks now he is keeping whole fucking bodies in a fucking lake, he is one sick fucking dude.

Loved it. The Gov is back and he's coming for Rick.

AND HE HAS A TANK! Just like in the comics.

LOVE IT! :-D

Only slightly better than last week and then drug down by previews of the battle for the prison part 2. Who cares?

The only thing I haven't liked about these episodes is that I hate when they focus entirely on the governor instead of splitting it up throughout the season and we don't get any of the main characters for a couple episodes at a time. But I enjoyed it, a lot went down, and most of all it looks like the tank is finally attacking the prison. Hopefully next episode the battle goes down and it's not just a circle jerk to leave people hanging until the next half the season kicks in.

The end of next week's episode will likely have a Will Riker "Fire!" moment just before the end credits.

Add me to the group that just doesn't care for the Governor. If anything, TV's Gov is tainting my appreciation of the comic's Gov.

Last weeks redemption was a joke. This week we're supposed to feel sorry for him for the child abuse he suffered :roll:

The bald GI Joe guy is the next in line of stupid characters. Gov admitted killing his brother, and it should have taken him 2 seconds to figure out that Carlos didn't fall into the pit without help and that he'd be on the chopping block too.

And Carlos never once talked about the Gov to his top men? Never once told the story of Woodbury? Never once said - "Man , that guy was bat-shit crazy. He killed his own people!".?

At least the show has a couple of cute lesbians now.

I actually really liked the past 2 episodes. Instead of the Governor just being a completely evil bastard, we started to see that there may have been more too him...

...NAH! He really is just an evil bastard. I particularly loved the scene when he returns to the camper and tells Lily and Megan to pack everything up and he just casually throws in the line that he can't lose them again. The Governor doesn't view them as Lily and Megan, he simply views them as suitable replacements for the family that he already lost!

I completely agree with this. A bit of the emotional punch of exactly what was going on in the Governor's mind was lost by rushing everything into the past 2 episodes, rather than adding it on to each episode throughout the first half of this season. Granted, we knew that the Governor was never going to redeem himself and become a hero but I think that the subtly of what was happening would have had a little more impact if it would have been a slower burn throughout the season.

After what Martinez saw him do in the finale last year I can't believe he didn't put one in his head when he found him in the pit.

Yep. I bet that's what he thought as he was being dragged towards the pit. :-D

I'm glad they used these last two episodes to establish The Governor as an evil character. The ending of season three was muddy at best. Now we know he is up to no good!
