PS, on the topic of gunshots being a zombie dinner bell: how easy would it be to get your hands on a silencer?
Pretty hard since they are illegal in the USA. they could make one but it's not easy. So you wouldn't find any in a sporting goods store or a police station or even an army base. they might find one at a stageing point for special forces

I would have sworn that Shane was smiling while running away when he shot Otis. for a big guy he did pretty good considering

Sound suppressors are legal in 37 states. Not sure why people are under the impression they are illegal.

But if you really need to quiet a shot there are plenty of ways to do it with a "field expedient" method as we called them in the Army. My personal favorite is duck taping a potato to your muzzle, it is only good for a single shot, but it works.

They must become sponge-like when in the water too long.

Bodies do this when in the water long enough. Watch CSI. :P

I was wondering why there wasn't anyone around with O-positive blood, who could donate for A-positive Carl. O-positive is the most common blood type.
Is it common for people to know their blood type?

Also common for them not to, so it wouldn't be surprising when someone didn't know either (Though, personality type/lifestyle contributes to many not knowing)

Heh, the Walking Dead is rather similar to BSG. I never thought of that too much before. BSG had much better defined characters at this point, though.
What do you mean at this point? BSG had way more episodes to develop its characters when it got halfway through its second season. Only nine TWD episodes have aired thus far!

I'm finding myself really enjoying the characters on TWD right now. It is one of the best dramas currently on cable.

If they were in the military, given blood or needed it. Why else would someone run the test?

I think Sidious618 was counting episodes, not seasons. Regardless, I am not sure I agree. I think both shows have about the same amount of character definition to this point.

We did it in high school science class.

Shane trying to take over Rick's family when he thought Rick was dead was simply the next step in that process: becoming Rick
Interesting you should say this. Since watching this episode I've been wondering if maybe they're keeping Shane around and having him go in this direction because TPTB want to keep their hero noble. In the comic Rick goes to some pretty dark places. Using Shane to take on this aspect of Rick's journey gives us the drama without sacrificing the hero's moral high ground.
