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.

Trivia

During filming of this episode, when Merle Dixon (Michael Rooker) is shooting from the rooftop of the department store, The S.W.A.T. squad of Atlanta were called because people thought he was a sniper. But everything was fine when they were told they were filming. See more »

Goofs

When Sheriff Grimes picks up the M67 fragmentation grenade in the tank, it has a noticeably blue safety lever. This indicates it is simply a poorly repainted inert M69 training grenade, which are completely blue. An actual M67 is entirely green, with yellow factory markings stenciled on the body. See more »

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.

Have you got 'guts' to watch this?
11 July 2012 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

The second episode of The Walking Dead keeps the tension up and running. I'm begging to loving this series.

After Rick is stranded in tank, the group of survivors helps Rick and he joins their group. Meanwhile, the anarchy of group is shown with Merle in charge and running a dictatorship, but it will be soon ruined by Rick.

At the survivors' living camp, Rick's living family and his best friend Shane is shown alive and healthy, but there is a dark secret in there.

Rick and group tries to escape from walker siege, and they come up with a funny and creative solution.

Overall, it both consists a good acting, story arc, and character depth. My vote is 9/10.
