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

Just saw the second episode. Fantastic stuff, even if it wasn't as gorgeously shot as the first episode. I need to get my hands on the graphic novels, I think.

So.. Another great episode.. But now I'm wondering.. What about the people in space, either in the shuttle or in the Space Station...

Think they were brought down when it became clear that the world was going to hell in a hand basket?

Think, if they're still up there, that they're wondering why no one at Houston has called in a while? "Ummm.. Guys? Hello?..."
Different zombie property, I know, but...

I liked how WWZ treated basically every significant aspect of human civilization in its narrative, including what happened to our various space initiaitves. Still:

They're also available on On Demand, along with some behind-the-scenes stuff and the first chapter of a Motion Comic.

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

So far, I'm pretty impressed.

I can't say I really have a favorite character yet, since many portrayals will be different from those in the comic series; and there are still a lot more characters coming.

I forget Laurie Holden's character in the comic, but she(or her characters, rather) hasn't fared too well lately...(Silent Hill, The Mist...

I'm hoping her character in The Walking Dead 'makes it.' (Of course, I'm going to have to break out my comics again).

I can't really say much more since this I'm only the second episode, but I'm looking forward to seeing how the story unfolds...(Onscreen, that is).

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

Somehow even though I don't have AMC any more, InDemand still lets me watch AMC shows.

I have a few nitpicks about the first episode: if the zombies can be evaded as easily as Morgan has been evading them ["Stay quiet at night and they wander away in the morning"] then the zombies really should not have been triumphant. And the logistics of Rick's hospital stay don't really seem to work. But I can and have put up with much greater logic flaws in zombie fare, so I can definitely work with what I've seen so far.

Well, it was heavily implied that it started out as an epidemic. People were getting sick with a fever, and it was a disease they didn't know how to fight, so a lot of people ended up getting infected. It wasn't until they died from the fever that they became zombies.

It's not like somebody became a zombie and started spreading their zombiness around.

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

In the comics, if you die of natural causes you still become a zombie -- bite or no bite. Everyone on Earth is already infected and destined to become a zombie. I'm not sure if this applies to the TV series, who knows -- they might go a different direction.


About, what, 200,000 people died daily? So in one day and without warning, 200,000 people resurrect in their deathbeds as zombies, infecting confused coroners, loved ones, and doctors. The next day, 200,000 people again die of mostly natural causes + newly infected humans. Not sure if it happened worldwide all at once, but if it did, it'd be hard to contain something that was literally everywhere and appearing exponentially.

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

It would be the first wave that got so many people zombified. They wake up, chomp on unsuspecting nurses and loved ones and boom!! Millions infected in a day or so before anyone knows what's going on.

Yep, Merle's a moron. Only he would choose to cut off his own hand instead of either cutting through the bolt the handcuff was attached to on the roof or cutting through the handcuff itself.

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

That's what I was thinking. Maybe the tool he had wouldn't cut through metal? Maybe just chopping off his hand clean was the faster option than sawing through handcuffs? The monsters were at the door. The clock was ticking.

That hacksaw probably wouldn't be able to cut through the cuff links all though I personally would have tried before even thinking of cutting of my hand.

His brother is as big an idiot as he is.

Gotta feel sorry for Shane. Why wouldn't he think Rick was dead if the hospital had never been evacuated or as it was over run with Zombies. I would have thought the same thing especially given Ricks medical situation.

Are they calling them Geeks? Hilarious.
