I think is was an issue in the 20s before someone said the 'Z' word. I remember it seeming out of place, for the way the setting is it felt off when they said it. The word 'Zombies' is kinda cheesy and doesn't fit. 'Walkers', 'Roamers' and 'Biters' are far better for the feel.
As a child, I was introduced to "cheese zombies" during grade school lunch before I knew what undead zombies were.

"Half a mind", indeed! Be cautious. Your internal optimist is showing! Now, spare me the poisonous barbs. My apologies to the dear "madam". Doubtless it was the rudeness of her manner in besmirching my noble name by virtue of association with a decomposing detachment of flesh-eating fiends which led me to make a MOST understandable assumption.

Now, if you'll excuse me, one and all, I simply MUST get some rest. It has been a most trying day and my delicate back is a disaster area today.

It's probably like Shaun of the Dead, where Shaun knows they're zombies, recognizes that they're zombies, and yet can't bring himself to call them that because he thinks it sounds ridiculous.

Don't worry, I already defended your honor. I think.

On the other hand, I may have something less than half a mind, so I've got problems of my own. (I just knew he was going to pick up on that line.)

Yes, they are. Take a look through the thread, you'll find lots of recommendations to check out the comics and at least a couple posts detailing the collected editions that are available. A link to a free online copy of issue #1 has also been posted a couple of times.

Re: AMC's The Walking Dead Season 1 Discussion & Spoilers

So I'm sitting in my hotel room here in downtown DC and can't believe the hotel doesn't carry AMC.. So no season finale for me until I get back to ABQ. Unless it's online. I guess I could investigate that tomorrow. Dammit!!!!

On a sorta kinda related not, I got about half way through "Handling the Undead" by the guy who wrote "Let the Right One In" on the plane today.. It's a different (yes, yet another "different") take on the zombie thing.. It's not a gore fest, with people running around screaming while the zombies munch, kind of book.. It's been really interesting so far.

Waiting to find out what Jenner whispered to Rick is going to drive me nuts until next season.

Re: AMC's The Walking Dead Season 1 Discussion & Spoilers

Dear God, those bastards. Whispering something in Rick's ear. AAAAAAARRRRRRGH!!!!

Well, that packed a wallop. The beginning sequence certainly wasn't what I was expecting. My emotions did a whiplash and a half. Don't know what to think of the volatile (he's still a powder keg) almost rapist Shane. He's not a total dick. Knowing there are few women left available is a bitch, but the site of him having to be fought off of his friend's wife still gives me chills. But.....he didn't intentionally leave Rick behind as I believed. He must love Rick on some level. He's just a misogynistic jerk. More practical than Rick about certain things, though. The group needs both Rick and Shane. Idealism needs to survive on some level if there is to be hope.

Jenner was creepy as hell. Unsettling. Yet, I understood his actions on an intellectual level. He was dead already. He was only on a 30 day delay. There's a reason solitary confinement is used as punishment. It fucks with your head.

Poor Jacqui. Still, I found it plausible that someone would make the calm, rational decision to stay.
