Right, with the fences as their defense they could have picked off all the walkers as they went through the prison yard without ever firing a shot. That would be pretty boring TV though
Yeah, but at least with Rick in charge it seems like their decisions have gone from stupid, to less smart. Apparently over the winter they were given plenty of opportunities to hone their skills and strategies when it comes to killing zombies.
I think this is going to add some great drama for when things eventually go wrong, because it won't be their fault as much.
Even Maggie just taking the axe off the firewood pile and running back to the car instead of trying to kill the zombie right there showed they've picked up more survival skills. Last season, they would have tried to fight them off until they got overrun, now they just gtfo and live to fight another day.
ETA: When I say things going wrong not being their fault, I mean because they're making better decisions, not because I know what's going to happen.
