To be frank with this show, that mysterious illness is the singular hook I have to watch this season. If that didn't happen I wouldn't be watching the show.
I agree with this, but the unfortunate part of TWD is that the Governor will return. Personally, I thought he outlived his purpose long before the season 3 finale.

I mentioned this last season is this the new threat?
Anyone notice that his eyes weren't the usual milky blue color?

So is the threat a new type of zombie? perhaps faster moving/more aggressive? or is it an outbreak of influenza, from the farm animals?


On a side note I'm surprised no one mentioned this but I hate the new CGI Zombies, they look way too mechanical, some of the ones at the fence looked really bad IMO.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

I too was wondering if the eyes were a new color, they focused on them pretty thoroughly (not sure if because it's a new color or merely to make it certain he had become a Zombie).

I was surprised no one brought it up on The Talking Dead, so, I figured maybe they weren't a different color afterall, (Or we're supposed to ignore it) maybe they'd always been a goldish color (I think Merle's were goldish, but, not quite that gold)

Do you have any screen capture examples because I didn't catch the CGI zombies?

No I don't but then again a screen cap alone would not show the mechanical looking movements.

I know know the use CGI to beef up the herds and such but those close up, daylight Zombies just did not work, I hope they don't continue down that path.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

Well, that was a great season opener. The crazy lady and the Tigger zombies at the store were both great stories. And things have certainly evolved back at the prison-- get used to the love, Mister Dixon.

I have a feeling the zombie kid and the dead pig are related somehow. A new kind of zombie virus? Or the governor's men infecting the food or water supply?

^ Covert or sleeper agents, great idea RJ!


I have a question - if you were in a zombie apocalypse, what would be your top weapon(s) of choice?

Mine:
Katana
Pistola
Military tomahawk

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

I enjoyed the premier. Both stories were good. Personally, I hope they don't wipe out everyone but the main characters and the leave the prison, I like the idea of them having their own little community there.
The stuff with the crazy lady in the woods gave us a good look at what Rick has become. The rain of zombies in the store was a pretty cool sequence. I like that they are trying to come up with more interesting zombie run ins than just a herd coming up on them while they're in the middle of doing something else.
I'm thinking that the virus or whatever killed the kid is the new threat they've been talking about in all of the promo interviews. I didn't even think about it being The Governor attempting to sabotage them, but that would make sense.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

Off topic: Myth Busters to test whether we could outrun the Zombies or not tomorrow, 10.17.2013, 10 p.m. on Discovery:

NBC, Today Show
Zombies have reached their pop culture peak. From books, comic books, movies, TV shows and apps, it's hard to avoid the legions of undead — well, except in real life.

For now at least, the dead stay put outside of fictitious setups. But just in case humanity ever finds itself facing a genuine zombie menace, the gang at "MythBusters" is putting zombie lore to the test.
Actually, as evidenced by the exclusive clip Discovery provided TODAY, they'll be putting humans to the test, to see if we stand a chance when it comes to surviving a zombie invasion.
