heading to the coast is actually not a bad idea. The zombies have one less direction to come at you from. If they could find a large barge or even an island, clear it of zombies, and live there it would be pretty safe. Though a prison works too. As long as you were sure all the actual inmates were gone.
While it's a different zombie anthology in the book and upcoming film World War Z after the zombie apocalypse and as world governments start to deal with the problem, the one problem remaining is zombie's wandering the ocean floor.

Freaky thought.

edited to add: speaking of World War Z, I didn't realize that JMS is writing. I dunno if that bods well or good for the film.

The screenplay was written by Babylon 5 and Rising Stars creator J. Michael Straczynski

Of course, the problem with the 'head for the coast" plan is that in MOST areas, that's by far the largest population density. Zombie central once the virus hits. Nice quiet little rural areas are where you wanna be, away from other people/former people. Unless you've got a boat (preferably sailboat) you can hang out on until you find a nice empty island...

I believe they weren't happy with his script, it wasn't "commercial" enough, so, it's been/being rewritten (Though I don't know to what degree). I believe the actual complaint was he was too true to the source material, which wouldn't be commercial enough.

I have little faith in the WWZ movie based on what I've heard of the changes to the story. While it may be a good zombie apocalypse movie, it won't be WWZ.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 2 Discussion *Spoilers*

It probably in real life would have been smarter to tell the truth about the zombie virus when Jenner first told him but kept the details of Shane's death to himself.

But the way they set it up creates better drama for television.
Yes, but it also makes sense that Rick didn't keep it a secret because it shows just how much the guilt of it is tearing him up. He shouldn't feel guilty because Shane left him little choice, but Rick isn't "The Walking Dead." He still feels. He's still very much human and thus he had a desperate need to confess. Lori wanted to hear that Rick hadn't killed Shane, and Rick (desperately) wanted to hear Lori say she still loved him and understood. Rick didn't hear what he wanted to hear either and that's when he lost it. I find that significant. The group bitching about him not telling them about the virus didn't break the dromedary's back. Lori's rejection and pulling away from him did. Two days later after much thought and contemplation.....Lori's still a JERK.

EDIT--Kudos to whomever created the "crisis arises eye fucks the camera" meme of Andrew Lincoln. It was choice.

I was referring to the "well or good" comment.

It would make a better series than a movie. I don't see how they can condense it that much.

I think there planning three films but this one is costing more than $125 million to make so if doesn't do very well as the box office that ain't going to happen.

Oh the things you think about when falling asleep.

I was in bed last night thinking why don't they look for a lake with an island in the center? The zombies can't swim and you would be relatively safe. Or just get a boat and drop anchor. Sure you would have to leave and forage for supplies but you could possibly get a some rest.

Loved this one BTW -

I don't know about islands: Zombi 2, World War Z, and the Forest of Hands and Teeth trilogy are all pretty clear about the dangers of underwater zombies. Then again, Well Zombie this season wasn't too scary, I guess.
