The Walking Dead Series 3 - UK Pace

This thread is for people watching it at UK pace only.

No spoilers from US pace please.

Assume fx pace rather than channel 5?

maybe if the US pace thread says in title "US Sunday nights, UK Friday" so people know that from Monday morning onwards there maybe spoilers for Fx viewers (i always forget/never know what day its on in America)

That would mean that FX viewers have a window of two days every week that they could read the thread

It's simple....

A US thread
A US thread with comic spoilers
A UK F/X thread
A UK F/X thread with comic spoilers
A Ch.5 thread
A Ch.5 thread with comic spoiler

That wouldn't get too confusing. All we need is another thread to tie them all together then so people can complain about what thread to post in, comic spoilering etc and it's sorted.

PS- Just to annoy everyone.

That's why it is silly. One thread with numbered episode spoilers was all that's needed.

which is fine by me, i only read it at weekend after watching on FX, assume most people have also be doing that.Just need days clarified so people know to avoid during the spoiler period. Or just read up to date x, and then stop when I see the date is after a US new ep has been released.

Yeah no real need for FX viewers to get a separate thread, they'll probably drop in on a Friday or Saturday.

Anyone annoyed with FX getting the times wrong, I've had bits missing from every episode on my Sky box. Had to change the delay at the beginning.

I'm watching it on FX, fantastic series so far, but gutting to have to wait a week between episodes, given that we watched the first two series in a week.

They really have no qualms about killing off characters do they. It's been pretty brutal so far. Still nobody going about with a proper beard so there's a good supply of razors still.

Indeed, Hershel is doing a decent job of maintaining his goatee/beard and why did T-dog never lose any weight?

It was so unrealistic - I mean we never saw anyone going to the toilet. What, they expect us to believe that in a Zombie apocalypse that no one ever goes to the toilet anymore!

Seriously though; if petty things like beards and weight are going to affect your enjoyment of a tv show, no wonder you hated the last episode.

Didn't think much to episode 5. But then again, that is comparing it to 4 awesome episodes in a row!

With the UK showings so close to the US most people just waited till Friday before popping back in to the thread. Plus for some reason people were using spoiler tags in the US thread.

I think the spoiler tags are just out of courtesy Bish. Having said that, there was nothing to stop me posting detailed information about the last episode after I watched it live here in the US. I might just do that next time lol

I don't want to stick my head in now and see about the finale! I'd be devastated - maybe it's time to sack up and get brave...(!)
