Re: AMC's The Walking Dead Season 1 Discussion & Spoilers

I liked this ok in terms of the "feel" of the show. Also it was great for us Galactica fans to hear new Bear McCreary stuff. I do have some nitpicks, and really they are things that seem to only bother me, but they always bring me right out of the show and destroy my suspension of disbelief.

Right off the bat the main charactor tells one of his men to make sure there is a round in the chamber, and he has the safety off. The guy is using a GLOCK, there is no manual safety switch! That control he manipulated and click we all heard was the slide release. Also, there were alot of UH-1s in Army colors lying around. Even the National Guard doesn't use the old huey anymore, they got retired over a year ago. The last thing was the "escape hatch" found under the tank that our hero used to get away from the zombies at the end. I am not positive, but I am pretty sure that the M-1 doesn't have an escape hatch on the bottom (any tamkers out there want to help out an ol' 11B on this one?)

Ok yes, I realize those are very nitpicky points and seem very trivial. But they are so easy to resolve, it just bothers me when writers, directors and such don't even bother to know what they are talking about. Sorry about all that, end of rant. I did enjoy the show and will be tuning I next week.
