FYI: If you watch the episodes on AMC's website, you can skip commercials. It's all one recording, not like Hulu where it's TV, then a whole other stream for the commercial, then back to TV. It's like recording the show on a DVR--just fast-forward through them.
Sure, you have to wait until the next day to see it, but hey. The Simpsons is on Sundays, so you won't be totally bored.
Haaah. If you watched the S2 Premiere, you'll remember the boy finding all those knives/axes/machetes?

I kept waiting for one of those shamblers to trip and fall see a survivor. I'm kinda curious where the pack came from. Were they in the woods or hanging out behind a bus?
I agree that I think there should have been a whole bunch of dead hanging around by the church. Thought it was interesting that there were 3 inside sitting down like at mass. Is the show establishing that the dead might seek out everyday routines ala Romero zombies?

See, I don't really have a problem with them making stupid decisions because the characters aren't supposed to be like us (read "us" as nerds who have planned WAY too thoroughly for an astronomically unlikely disaster). Although, admittedly, I really do wish a Zed would just go ahead and make lunch out of Sophie's mother already. I simply cannot abide useless people.

I'm surprised there weren't more rotters in the church, too. A small church like that, maybe the rest of the crowd was at home with the family. Or ran away from the fourth one, who reanimated sooner.
They don't appear to have been attracted to the routine (though I do agree it could be expected that zombies head toward the last things they remember before the brain goes), but they were probably bitten or injured or something, and had been praying up until the point they died in the pews and turned. Without live food, there would be nothing to stand for and follow.
The comics did establish that, while some zombies pick a likely direction and go off in search like Grandpa Oldstein looking for a buffet, others will conserve energy and just chill until prey or a more determined-looking zombie comes along to suggest food.

I'd like to think that there would be more zombies near the church especially with the recorded bells going off on a timer as well. The zombie heard the blond girl fumbling with the pistol parts and that wasn't as loud as the church bells recording.
The ending for the first episode of TWD:S2 was awesome! I knew something messed up was going to happen in that scene and I wanted it to xD
