Also, chopping off Hershel's leg would have not saved him. Our hearts pump 6L of blood per minute! By the time the leg came off the virus would have already well circulated well beyond where his leg was cut off. So basically once you are bitten, you are pretty much SOL.
I also thought this as well...I'm not sure how much it goes against previously established facts about what happens to a person when they are bit by a zombie, but perhaps it does not come as a result of any type of 'zombie active virus' entering the bloodstream. The zombie bites a person and they are infected in the cells at the point of the bite. Similar to gangrene so if you cut it off/out before it spreads beyond a point the person is then saved.

Yea, don't believe we've gotten a definitive answer if amputation will prevent infection in this Show, but, in most Zombie movies I've seen, amputation doesn't work.

Add me to that train of thought. Once bitten, the virus would cause an infection that would kill the host.
Also deep scratches, as in the case of Tiny. He was deeply scratched by a zombie wrist/arm bone on his back.
With Herschel, the leg was removed, removing the infected area. Tiny didn't have that option for his back wound.

That's always bothered me about how everyone ends up with zombie gore all over them and they don't get any in their eyes, noses or mouths. Even with animals, we wear masks to prevent infection from splash back.

No. Shane was using his survivalistic attitude to put Rick down and maybe use it as an excuse to start a fight and possibly kill Rick. Shane didn't give Rick the credit he was due.
This. It's a shame because Shane could have been a real asset but the issues with Lori, etc drove him over the edge.

Yeah, that's kinda bothered me; if a bite or scratch would infect you, having that much blood and gunk splashed on you would also be an infection risk. You'd at least get some in your eyes, for sure. But I think the producers dropped that idea because the gore-spattered actors looked "more cool" for the show.

Yea, they pretty much nixxed that idea, in S1 when Rick and Glen took the Zombie Guts sponge bath

I know he died in the comics but its a shame they killed him in this too as it would of been good to see him deal with the current affairs although he did get really irrational and annoying especially with all that Lori crap, they should of got rid of her.

Looks like Lori may have finally wised up. The question is whether it's too late.

Or maybe she's just sucking up because she doesn't have any better options.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Splash really should be a problem, and in the first season they did at least try, once, to avoid getting gunk in their eyes. Unfortunately, a major unspoken Hollywood rule precludes main cast actors from covering their hair unless it's a character thing.

Anyone remember the first seasons of Stargate SG-1, Flashpoint, etc.? They all had helmets as part of their kit. Then, they started consistently walked into firefights and other dangerous situations without them... Why? To make sure their hair still showed.

I also love how everyone on these "end of the world" shows still manage to have perfectly nice, white teeth. At least the cast of Walking Dead aren't as perfectly clean & pretty as on some shows, like Revolution.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

In Revolution they apparently have bath houses and other relatively civil ways of keeping clean, even on the road. Hot water may be more of a luxury, but it's available.

I burst out laughing this week when Maggie was trying to tell her dad it was okay to move on, while flashing some insanely clean and white teeth. Pretty distracting.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

I have to confess I FF'ed through the scenes with Maggie and her sister, immediately followed by Maggie and Hershel. To me thats the sort of thing that made season 2 such a drag at times. Yes we know, they're sad. Theres no need to have one tearful, heartfelt scene followed immediately by a second one with another character. It gets tiresome and wears the vewer out.

Yeah, I don't get the complaints about people being to clean on Revolution. I don't understand why everybody always expects people in post apocalyptic to suddenly be dirty all the time. I don't see why people in a world like Revolution's would suddenly not care about being clean. Now, in something like The Walking Dead, where they are almost constantly on the run for their lives I can see it a little more.

No, really, it's relevant. "Dad, it's okay to let go. I'm not a kid anymore. I can take care of myself. You taught me that. How to be responsible. How to stand up for myself. How to floss after every meal. See? See?"

You know, with all this talk about zombies being immune to decomposition and toxic to germs: seems like zombie ichor would make really effective toothpaste.

Just make sure you rinse REALLY well afterward.
