Re: The Walking Dead

Yeah, and it looks like someone might be using them as a weapon. So it looks like two of the ideas mentioned upthread might be coming true.
That's a pretty great trailer. Looks like the season should at least get off to a good start.

Re: The Walking Dead

Well, that makes sense. The walkers would have had months, maybe over a year, to gather into larger and larger herds. When one of them stumbles over a settlement, even without targeting humans, they'll overwhelm fences and other obstacles. It doesn't help that someone seems to be attracting walkers to the prison!

The Walkers seem to operate in a "herd mentality" one walks around until it encounters another one then there's two walking around until they encounter another.... There may be a sense of an "alpha dog" on some level here too. But it does seem that someone in the prison group (one of the Woodberry survivors) is leading the Walkers to (into) the prison. (I doubt it's The Governor, however.) I also wonder if that story will move away from the prison this year and onto whatever the next setting is that's used in the comics.

^I think it's simpler than that. One zombie makes a noise which attracts another zombie. 2 zombies making noise attracts a third and so on.

Re: The Walking Dead

What's the human-to-walker ratio in TWD? 1000:1? 5000:1? Whatever it is, even a small herd could overwhelm the prison defenses.

Re: The Walking Dead

That's a good trailer. I do think that the Governor is probably behind the buildup of zombies, though. They said he was still out there.

It's a good trailer. Lots more zombie fodder now!

I was thinking that whoever is doing the things in the trailer is the person that was watching Carol from the woods when she was practicing a c section on a walker. I don't remember them ever revealing who that was.

I think they eventually confirmed that was Andrew, one of the prisoners (the one Rick leaves apparently to his death, but later conspires to get walkers into the prison, leading to the death of T-Dog and Lori.)

It is familiar territory for this series, though.

"We just lost 12 of our own, 2 in cold blood"
I noticed Beth was only in one those scenes, I wonder if the "in cold blood" part is the same as what happens in the comics.

There is also a scene with Carol and a bandana, I wonder if the new threat it the zombies mutating somehow, anyone notice the are several scenes where they seem to be bleeding from their eyes?

Re: The Walking Dead

Since Kirkman seems dead set on his zombies evolving in any way (and the new showrunner is apparently the first who's also a big fan of the comics), this seems unlikely.

I imagine the new threat is key to zombie behaviour and numbers. Like, say, something like the giant zombie herd that ended season two is headed for the prison.

So....

Daryl vs. Tyrese (and Tyrese hits Rick). I'm guessing something happens to....

Oh fuck, I hope not. I actually wondered between that line and

Re: The Walking Dead

That trailer looks great. I love it when you think you've seen everything and something like that comes along and surprises you.

Saw this article.

Gotta say, Michonne is a million times hotter in the show than the girl that plays her.

Re: The Walking Dead

Is there a video of the trailer somewhere that can be seen outside of the USA?
