Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

In the pilot episode we also saw a little girl zombie pickup a doll lying on the ground, plus the one man's wife/zombie from the pilot trying the door to the house they were in.

According to "Talking Dead" afterwards, the writers threw that in as one of them loves tea and showing up to work in a jacket & tie, etc. It's a neat character quirk, and I doubt it has any additional significance, though it does help set him apart as a person.

Plus, I think it's only natural if you group of survivor has a resident educated guy, to put him to wokr trying to understand the zombie menace. It does grow the universe a little without really fundamentally altering it; although now in TWD if anyone ends up on the road by themselves, they should disable their closest walker, lop off the arms and jaw, and feel a BIT safer in the wilderness thereafter.

I'm not buying that tea observation. And he was going to add something after but the host interupted him and changed the topic.

the people there are all a little stepford wife-ish. And Andrea drank the tea and got all docile after.
Still got 3 pages of comments to read, so sorry if this is beaten to death from here to there.

Yea, I already had a Stepford feeling watching the episode, and then it was driven home with The Talking Dead, "In Memoriam" segment that ended with a placard "Welcome to Westbury, Enter at your own Risk", and then I got an especially major Stepford, CT, USA vibe from the town

I'm not sure it was necessarily wise, wiping all the Military guys out. I mostly justify it by the fact they abandoned their posts, instead of surviving after fighting to the last man. If it hadn't been for that, I would think he'd want to keep the low ranking or easily influenced, at least

The Governor didn't strike you as someone who would expect you to hold your post until he gave you leave?

If the Command gave the order to "cut and run", it wouldn't've been termed "Abandonment". I can certainly see abandoning your post when all is lost, I don't see the Governor as that forgiving, though, if a "Cut and Run" order wasn't given..

The governor looks to be a bad man and a formidable challenge. With everything so bad right now in the world it was really painful to watch him do what he did with those troops. I really felt that more than you usually do in these shows where a baddie does something like that.

No, it was more the oxymoron of "surviving after fighting to the last man".

Well, technically they could, considering the title of the show....

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

I watched the episode again and the governor drinks the tea. Leading me to think there isn't drugs in it, unless it's some anti zombie drug.

aslo, Merle deliberately gives the governor the impression that andrea told him daryl was dead.

Good point. It could very well have been a character judgment.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

I don't think there is a bright future in this universe. People die, they become walkers. Walkers can survive longer without eating. The question is, how did this virus originate? it had to be a recent set of events that lead to the creation of the walkers.

Well, that goes with the territory! With the exception of the horror/comedy Return of the Living Dead II (where the zombie problem is solved, and the heroes survive), I cannot recall another where the future was anything other than the death toll rising or permanent dread for the survivors.

I think the TV series will go the route of a man-made plague, rather than leaving the cause murky as in the 2004 Dawn of the Dead remake.

Thanks! I didn't recognize the face. Still pretty oblivious at faces, I guess.
