Darkness, Imprisoning Me: "The Walking Dead" Season Three Trailer Pulls Me Back In Again

By TK | Trailers | July 16, 2012 | Comments ()


I just can’t quit you, “Walking Dead.” Because when you’re good, you’re so good. But when you’re bad, you make me want to put my head through a window.

But this trailer, which is long as fuck and debuted at ComicCon? Is really, really good. It showcases a much larger scale, including an entire town of the living, as well as another setting that, in the comics at least, is a part of one of the most exciting and spectacular chapters of the comics — the prison. It also shows Michonne (Danai Gurira) and The Governor (David Morrissey) in action (and I do mean action on Gurira’s part). The scope is wider and the showrunners have promised that it will take a much, much darker tone (though I’m guessing not quite as dark as the books — at least I hope).

There’s great potential for season three, as long as the show can avoid getting stuck in ruts where there’s little plot movement or character development. You can have one happen, but not both simultaneously, which is what occasionally dragged down season two. That and some really poor, unfocused writing at times. But overall, I’m still excited for the show.

Take a look:

Oh, did I forget to mention Merle? Because Merle fucking Dixon is back, people. And he appears to be channeling one Ashley J. Williams.

    I didn't have cable for Season 2, but bad reviews scared me off catching up via a DVD marathon. Now that I'm plugged back into civilization I was wondering if it was possible to skip Season 2 and go right to three. Can anyone knowledgeable of the comics can maybe help me out? Maybe a couple of "need to knows" and I'm good?

    You should watch it.
    I'm afraid to turn you off or on the contrary, to over-sell it. Watch it. It is worth it, even going through some of the frustrating parts. Going through the shit would make the final episode worth your while, and give you hope for next season!

    Just came here to say that woman is holding the samurai sword incorrectly. That kind of thing really bugs me.

    Game on!

  • mairimba

    Because she's not a samurai and it's just her weapon of choice at a moment that she has to fight for her life.

  • mr Duh

    neodiogenes' comment was just that- a comment, and apparently rhetorical.
    Because his first sentence begins "Just came here to say," and contains no implication that the woman is or is not a samurai.
    The second sentence is more clearly "commentary," as neodiogenes rather succintly declares "That kind of thing really bugs" him/her, and offers no indication that consideration of the woman's weapon of choice or her having to fight for her life was of any particular concern or interest to him/her.
    For these reasons, mairimba , it would seem your "Because" comment is entirely unwarranted and of not much value, considering it's Game on! value,time for neodiogenes, which should have clued you in to the fact that he/she is most likely to not even bother coming back to read your comment.
    Exactly what part of "Just came here to say" coming did you fail to grasp?

    Just came here to say mr Duh is kind of an ass.

  • Rocabarra

    David Morrissey!!!!!! That is all.

  • Fredo

    Oh no! You're not getting my hopes up! Not with this!

    /begins hating self for being certain I'll watch it

    That trailer was sweeeet....
    I think Season 3 has much better potential. Hopefully, the prison won't be a drag on the show like the farm was and, at the very least, it looks like we'll have a parallel plot running with Andrea and Michonne in Woodbury. A nice change of pace. Also, the end of the Rick-Lori-Shane triangle can only help the show.
    I can't wait.

  • GunNut2600

    I honestly got to ask...is the show worth getting into this late in the game? Granted I am currently unemployed so I got the time to catch up but I really don't feel like investing in a show if its not all that great?

    I think I just realized how fucking worthless my life has become when I need advice on whether to watch a show.

  • space_oddity

    I'd say absolutely, but even if you're unsure, the first season is a relatively light commitment (6 episodes?). Watch that and see if you feel like continuing. The first half of season 2 DRAAAAAAAGS and feels repetitive at times, though. But that feeling may perhaps be minimized by binge viewing. It picks up in the second half, and honestly, judging by this trailer, season 3 looks great.
