Storyline

Rescued from his precarious situation, Rick meets a band of scavengers who have made their way to Atlanta to get supplies for their larger group that lives in a makeshift camp just outside the city. They're trapped in a department store with hundreds of zombies trying to break down the door to at them. Tensions are high and Rick ends up handcuffing one of them, a redneck named Merle Dixon, to keep him from killing someone. They try to escape through the sewers without success and Rick comes up with a clever scheme to draw the zombies away from their location. They have to leave one man behind however.

Quotes

T-Dog: [into walkie-talkie] Anybody out there? Hello? Anybody read? I'm hoping to hear somebody's voice 'cause I'm sick and tired of hearing mine.
Merle Dixon: Yeah, well, that makes two of us. Why don't you knock that crap off? You're giving me a headache, boy.
T-Dog: Why don't you pull your head out of your ass? Maybe your headache will go away. Try some positivity for a change. Damn.

To walk or not to walk ? Buzz off ! Guts is the answer.
8 November 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

In the same vein as the pilot. As scary and immersive thanks to its top notch production Guts still managed to make The Walking Dead recipe even more tasty. More gory, more intense and a juicy mix of popcorn entertainment and philhorrosophical elements. Having diner while watching the show would be the worst meal ever, but definitely the quickest way to throw up. The Days Gone Bye headshots were nothing compared to the bloody scenes I had to endure. Of course it wasn't heavy on visuals but the sounds are so well rendered that it's easy to picture what's happening. Otherwise these painful, but mandatory, experiences were smoothed thanks to marvelous cheesy acting. It's disgusting the way we treat zombies ! Well things are more subtle than in your average scream movie because our characters are not brainless, far from it. From memories, emotions to moral values most of them have a strong empathy factor. Let's separate to get all killed one by one ! What a bright idea, not on the show. Rick's plan to escape was well designed and the character he heard on the radio should grow on you in no time. I was specially impressed by his charisma and the way he directed his team mates at some point. A teamwork ingredient we don't get to smack so often. The last time I was so dazzled by it was probably after watching Prison Break's Vs. twisted episode and of course some Smallville candies. The more we care about them, the better. Because that way when they have to walk silently in a dark alley it summons the chicken within. Yes you read me. Far from luring our attention from its evil roots there's also something deeply humanist about the story, reminiscent of George A. Romero's work. As a fan of Sara Tancredi I was also anticipating Sarah Wayne Callies's return as Lori Grimes. Her arc was minor but essential as its inevitable collision with the other is intriguing. Moreover even if her part could have been more convincing she definitely has potential and her behavior raised questions about love, friendship and sexuality. Maybe it's the ultimate one behind most walking productions, even Shaun of the Dead. What makes us human ?
