Re: The Walking Dead Season 2 Discussion *Spoilers*

I'm not even going to get into the whole 'where could they go to survive' discussion. Thats a whole new discussion in itself.

Sat down and marathoned the entire second half of the series. Not bad. Amazing how the entire group dynamic has changed in only a few episodes. People who you previously couldn't stand *cough*Hershel*cough* have really stepped up to the plate now that the chips were down.

And its pretty damned amusing the amount of fan rage that Lori and Carl are generating. I hope the show producers are paying attention.

Haven't read the comic, but I hope that next season isn't just a retread of every bad post-apocolyptic movie ever made and some prison boss has decided to set himself up as the local warlord.

Can't really blame Rick for how he reacted toward the end. He's tried to be the nice guy all this time and look where thats got him. Maybe its time to give the 'alpha male' method a try.

Has anybody mentioned the fact that during the end battle, everyone was pulling off perfect headshots while hanging out the window of moving cars? Driving over grass no less? Probably the only thing that took me out of the story.

I guess all that target practice earlier really paid off.

Now if only they had spent more time setting up some kind of actual barrier or warning system around the farm...

well they did have a fence. It would take years to build anything else.

And, they also had an early warning system in the form of a "Tower Guard" hanging out on top of the RV on lookout, but, of course Queen Lori thought that was a waste of time and a good "dosmetic duty" resource, that should be cooking and cleaning instead of "sunbathing"

Too bad Lori didn't think keeping an eye on her son was part of her proper female domestic duties.

The problem with a prison or oil rig, is you'd STILL need to take lots of trips outside for supplies. Especially the more people you get in there.

Edit. Oops, looks like Disrupter beat me to it.
Not necessarily on the prison side of things. Every prison has secured open air areas. Get some vegetables planted there and you'd be able to sustain yourself after a while.

I'm trying to avoid getting sucked back into this discussion (you guys are going to keep it up till September, aren't you? ) but you can see Jon Bernthal going berzerk in a guest spot on Harry's Law sometime during May, before he moves on to LA Noir.

(Harry's Law is some sort of lawyer show that I'm surprised isn't cancelled yet.)

Okay, fine, I can't resist...it might be tempting to take a big ole cruise ship out to the middle of San Francisco Bay and just park there, but has anyone considered that decaying bodies float? I'm not at all convinced that the whole zombies-can't-swim philosophy is something I'd stake my life on.

I also wonder if an island might lead to a false sense of security. Zombies don't need to breathe. They just wander around. A zombie might walk (underwater) onto an island and start an outbreak.

Not to mention that if someone in your party died of natural causes, you'd still be stuck with a zombie on the ship, and who knows if you'd be able to get to them in time. Especially on a really big ship with a lot of people, and a lot of hiding places.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 2 Discussion *Spoilers*

Going back to the episode real quick...I just rewatched it, and clearly Jimmy was just a dumbass. He saw Rick on the roof and Rick directed him where to go so that he and carl could get on top of the RV. So he knew they would be on the roof. So why was the bloody door unlocked? That is the ONLY way that the Zombies could have gotten in (especially given that the door swings out). The only explanation for his death is that the door was unlocked so someone fraked up big time.

That was the only real problem that I had with the ep...well that and T-dog's horrid u-turn.

Dead bodies only float for a short time. Basically only while the gases are being held in. once released, the body sinks. Suffice it to say, most zombies won't float.

^^ And it's not easy to walk underwater. Zombies just kind of stumble around and the bottom of lakes and oceans are all muddy and full of underwater plants and junk, so they'd either get stuck or be pushed around randomly by the currents.

As for safe places, the safest place on Earth would probably be McMurdo Base. It's even got an arboretum to grow food. The problem, of course, would be maintaining a supply of fuel to keep the place heated and powered up.
