    I know I'm going to ruin it for everyone...But I was really put off during the gunfights by two things:

    1. None of their guns kicked at all in the prison clearing scene. They didn't move, they weren't even shooting blanks, they just had some CG muzzle flashes and that was it.

    Picking off zombies, in the head, from guard towers? Come on man. Even if they had some unlimited stash of ammo with which to practice, and used all their time to do so..a pistol and a human eye/hand is just not that reliable. A pro couldn't consistently make those shots.

    Yeah I noticed the guns didn't move which made it look cheap. I mean **** how much does it cost to use training guns and blanks?

    Point 2 I am ready to forgive because after all it is TV. The CG muzzle flash was horrible though.

    This was to be expected when in S2 finale Hershel's pump action 12Ga held 30 shells:bang:

    At least it felt badass because it was Hershel and he was mowing them down. Now I've got women and children holding guns, basically going "pew, pew, pew".

    The only thing I hate about zombie flicks is that 95% of the films never explain how the sh!t got started.

    Edit:

    Nevermind. My wife just explained to me that TWD is following the Romero rules. :nerd:

    Well, blanks aren't 'safe' they're safer than a bullet, but still not safe at pbr they can even be fatal. They're great if it's long range, or if you're cutting to the shooter then back to the target such that in reality the gun isn't pointed at anyone. However, at close range when both the shooter and the zombie are in the camera shot such that the gun has to point at the actor, blanks aren't the best choice.

    Then spend a few hours adequately training your actors/actresses how to fake recoil in at least a half-assed manner.

    Please note the budget was slashed in half while forcing to shoot twice as many episodes last season. I'm pretty sure those few hours couldnt be afforded by the show producers with the restraints AMC forces on them.

    Half is an exaggeration, and a few hours to be told to make it look real is also an exaggeration.

    In reality, the director could've simply shouted to the actors that guns kick when they're fired, and it would have improved the scene greatly.

    That was a really well done scene, they really made the characters feel plausible for a change. Best scene of the series so far imo.
