Watched the first episode of season 2 yesterday. It was kind of slow, but overall it got me pumped for the rest of the season.
Some of my thoughts:
1) If basically everyone is dead, I don’t think NFA rules apply. The crossbow and hand-to-hand zombie killing is dangerous, and is getting old. Find a gun store that sells suppressors, or better yet a suppressor manufacturer and loot the shit out of it. Advanced Armament Corp (AAC) comes to mind, they are located in Lawrenceville, Georgia. Seeing as The Walking Dead is currently taking place around Atlanta a simple 32 mile jaunt down I-85N could net them all the slidencing power (and sweet NFA weapons) they could ever ask for. Problem solved.
2) The product placement at 29 and 39 minutes for the Gerber zombie apocalypse knives was so forced it was hilarious. I’m sure that’s not the last we will see of this knife set on the show, considering it’s now part of weapons they have on hand. Show the Gerber logo some more, flash those smiles, say something great about them, and collect your money AMC.
3) Maybe it’s just my imagination, but I think the zombie makeup looked a lot better this season. The special effects also seemed a bit better too.
If you forgot to set the DVR, you can always watch it online on Amazon for a couple bucks:
