The Walking Dead Series Premiere Rewatch: Tell it to the Frogs

Please Note:  We’ll be spoiling a number of Walking Dead developments which have occurred between the premiere and now.  Don’t listen if you’ve ONLY seen the premire and don’t want the series spoiled.

Rob Cesternino (@RobCesternino), Josh Wigler(@RoundHoward) continue the six-week quest to go back to the beginning of “The Walking Dead” with a special Season 1 re-watch series of podcasts.  This week the guys are re-watching the 3rd episode of “The Walking Dead”, “Tell it to the Frogs”

    I remember asking for the The Walking Dead video game for Christmas. Instead of the Telltale version that I was hoping for, I got the survival instinct one and I will confirm that it is indeed a garbage fire of a game.

    Speaking about show-logic I have a tiny question. Does anyone else find it strange that cast members can just shove a knife or sharp instrument into a zombie’s head without much force?

    I haven’t head-stabbed many zombies, but wouldn’t the skull kinda deflect some of those shots?

    • Morty

      I’ve thought that often. Skulls are extremely hard and harder to damage than people would imagine. It’s a bit of a hoot to me that people push any ol’ edged instrument…even a semi-pointy stick…through people’s skulls. Maybe in the W.D. universe, but not ours!

  • J-me not Hi-me

    I disagree that none of our principal characters have any character flaws. Rick got Abraham killed because he was arrogant; Daryl got Glenn killed because he was a hot-head, Rosita got Olivia killed because she was a hot-head, Carol got Sam killed because she scared the shit out of him, and Carl by rights should have gotten people killed because his dumb-ass went on a suicide mission.

    • Matthew Murphy

      To be fair Sam wasn’t long for this world either way. He was more useless than Carl and Enid’s offspring.

    • I hear you on those flaws. However, I think all of those issue you mentioned are all shades being too brave / overconfident in their abilities to end a threat. No one in our main group has any really negative traits.

    Why not use the hacksaw to cut through the handcuffs? Someone hasn’t seen the original Saw. 🙂

    I don’t know why you’re so stuck on how it’s so illogical that Daryl killed a deer and it took him a minute to get there. He literally says “man I’ve been tracking this thing for miles.” When you shoot a deer of you don’t hit it in the perfect spot it will run until it bleeds out or dies from it’s wound. I like the podcast but there’s a lot of instances you spend 3 minutes bashing the show on things that actually make sense when there’s plenty to actually criticize.
