Nicely cranked-up episode, that... a few tender moments with Merle ... buy-bye, useless Lori! Pretty sure Carl did the deed, but not even AMC is going to show a kid shooting his momma in the head for drama. New dynamic with the group's felonious additions... but I gotta say, T-Dog did not deserve his fate... a real shame... oh, and the "sex tower" - nice touch
In a test room located at New York’s City College, researchers strapped special EEG readers to the heads of volunteers while they watched AMC’s television show The Walking Dead. One of cable television’s most popular programs, The Walking Dead is filled with flesh-eating zombies, extreme violence, and bloody deaths. Scientists from the Harmony Institute, an organization with ties to the entertainment industry, were trying to see what goes through viewer’s brains when they watch a television show, and to compare the results to what’s discussed on social media sites.
For the most part, the report found, scenes that were heavily tweeted were also accompanied by heavy neural responses. The converse, however, is not true. Many segments in the show that sent neurons firing barely registered on Twitter. One emotionally resonant scene, when the show’s protagonist Rick woke up from a coma to find out his family has disappeared, was the subject of sparse Twitter comments but caused intense brain activity.

Could be that since it was the first episode, there wasn't a lot of twittering going on yet. More like, what the F did I just see?
