The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 10: 18 Miles Out

There are only three more episodes left of Season 2 of The Walking Dead and things are finally starting to heat up!

"The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 10: 18 Miles Out" is framed somewhat like the episode in which Shane killed Otis and starts out in a "flash forward" with Shane running away from walkers on what appears to be a fenced in school grounds. Shane is being chased by walkers. Rick sees one fall out of the window and a tied up Randal is wriggling like an inch worm towards a knife. Shane runs into a school bus and struggles to keep the door shut as the walkers attempt to get in.

The Best Zombie Movie Opening Ever

Like the different takes of slow and fast zombies that are now prevalent in the genre, some zombie movies start slow and some start fast. Then there are fast zombie movies that have such incredibly intense openings that they stay with you for years. Such is the case of Dawn of the Dead (2004), which has the best zombie movie opening ever.

The screenplay was brilliantly written adaptation of George A. Romero's original "Dawn of the Dead" script and was penned by James Gunn. It was so good in fact, that it was nominated for the 2005 Bram Stoker Award for Screenplays.

"Dawn of the Dead" starts out innocently enough, all the while cleverly leaving little hints that begin to add up and point to zombie apocalypse that I just love.

The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 9: Trigger Finger

"The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 9: Trigger Finger" is by far one of the best episodes of the season.  It had a lot of action, a lot of zombies, and a heck of a lot of character development. Conversations that should've happened several episodes ago finally happen and we got to see the reason why Lori ran off like she did...

Episode 9: Trigger Finger starts out with Lori unconscious in the wrecked car and a walker trying to get in to eat her. It shoves its face through the broken windshield, ripping off flesh around its mouth and chin in an attempt to get at her. (Which was pretty awesome if I do say so myself.)

The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 8: Nebraska

When we last left the group, Shane had rallied the group to his side and broke open the barn where they were storing the walkers. After they gunned the walkers down like a line of gunmen at an execution, poor Sophia appears at the barn door, and we learn that she had been attacked and turned into a walker. With everyone stunned by her appearance, Rick steps up and kills her.

Everyone is in shock over Shane's violent outburst. He finally got his way, drew the group to follow his lead, and left a pile of corpses in his wake.

Carol pushes Daryl away, angry at him- Daryl was an agent of hope for her and her daughter, but it appears that hope is a dangerous thing to have in a zombie apocalypse. Carol runs to the RV, where she had been sitting, waiting for them to find Sophia.

Beth, Hershel's youngest daughter, runs to her mother's side (she was one of the walkers that was in the barn), calling out her name and crying. When she turns her over, her undead mother attacks her, and she screams. Andrea, Glenn, T-Dog come to her aid and Andrea drives a scythe through the back of the walker's head.
