    This show needs some 'Lost'-style flashbacks.

      Flashbacks are okay when necessary, but "Lost" seemed to live on them. I loved that show at first but then the writers seemed like they forgot what their original story-line was... and the ending.... grr... reminded me of how they ended "St. Elsewhere."

        I don't remember the ending to St Elsewhere, Scott. Refresh my memory so I don't have to Google.

          (Long story short) The entire series never happened... they wrote everything off to the imaginings of an autistic child's mind as he stared into a snow globe.

            WTF?! Oh man! I would have been pissed off, haha. I didn't watch it regularly, I think I only watched reruns. Unless you're pulling me leg.

              I didn't watch it a lot myself, but that kind of writing can seriously mess with a true fans mind.

              Here's the wiki write-up about the finale:

              The final episode of St. Elsewhere, known as "The Last One", ended in a context different from every other episode of the series. As the camera pulls away from snow beginning to fall at St. Eligius, the scene changes to Donald Westphall's autistic son Tommy, and Daniel Auschlander in an apartment building. Tommy is playing with a snow globe. Westphall arrives home from a day of work, and it is clear that he works in construction from the uniform he wears and from a conversation in this scene. "Auschlander" is revealed to be Donald's father, and thus Tommy's grandfather. Donald laments to his father, "I don't understand this autism thing, Pop. Here's my son. I talk to him. I don't even know if he can hear me, because he sits there, all day long, in his own world, staring at that toy. What's he thinking about?" Tommy shakes the snow globe, and is told by his father to come and wash his hands. Donald places the snow globe on the family's television set and walks into the kitchen with Tommy and Auschlander. As they leave the room, the camera closes in on the snow globe. Inside it is a replica of St. Eligius.[3] NewsRadio paid homage to this scene at the end of the third season fantasy themed episode "Daydream".

              One of the more common interpretations of this scene is that the entire series of events in the series St. Elsewhere had been a product of Tommy Westphall's imagination, with elements of the above scene used as its own evidence.[4][5] One of the results of this has been an attempt by individuals to determine how many television shows are also products of Tommy Westphall's mind because of shared fictional characters: the "Tommy Westphall Universe".

                Wow. The writers for Mary Tyler Moore and MASH did the finale great. These writers, hahaha, must have been smoking crack before crack was around.

                  I can't imagine having the gall to write an ending like that after so long and with such a following.

                          I dug the episode, glad Rick manned up at the end. The next ep looks better, too. I hope they leave Hershel's farm soon.

                            I certainly wasn't expecting that .. awesome show. Worth the wait. Only 5 more for this season!

                            Dying to know what's going to happen between Shane and Dale (I thought I read somewhere that this actor didn't want to work on the show once Darabont was gone).

                              Oh that quick draw in the saloon was great. I watched the 1st and 2nd season(what was available then) a month ago and have been dying for the new episodes.

                                I missed it. Will try to watch online before the next episode.
