Trying to find a way back to civilization. It's still out there somewhere. A walker free city where people are working on fixing this mess
I'm curious how you would be so certain that civilization is still out there, you suggest the above would be better then

But it kinda seems like the same thing really, even if you are right , and civilization is still out there, finding it would be a needle in a haystack. Unless its not just 'out there' but also 'within a short distance' you could wander for ever and not stumble accross it. even if it is close, if you head the wrong way, you could never know it was just over that hill behind you,

^ and Faith.

But more than likely some kind of signal would still be broadcasting advising survivors where to go.

Exactly. If it was me, I'd get my people to some safe place and wait for some broadcast that I could trust. Traveling around not only puts you at risk of becoming Zombie food, but also of running into bands of survivors that are not quite so benign (like that biker gang in Dawn Of The Dead).

Re: The Walking Dead Season 2 Discussion *Spoilers*

In the Novels is the rest of the world ever mentioned? or is the outbreak limited to USA?

I would love to see the BBC try to adapt a UK version

I think that version of the show would be called World War Z.

But how would you know to trust a broadcast unless you went and found the source of the broadcast?

Re: The Walking Dead Season 2 Discussion *Spoilers*

^^ That's a good question (also good story material). But it would be better than wandering blindly in a world of hungry Zombies and unrestrained opportunists.

Just to say something nice about the Resident Evil films, they've shown both approaches leading to more or less the same result - which I take to be deliberate, but I may be optimistic on that.

I'm not current with the comics at this point, but the way it and the tv show are presented, is that Rick and his rag-tag band exist in this microcosm within the state of Georgia.. All hell has broken loose there and they are just making it day to day... Because there's no power, there's no real way to know exactly what's going on outside their part of the world. Seattle or even Albuquerque could be a safe haven (having battled all those zombies from Santa Fe), but there's just no way for them to know.

In World War Z, the common practice was for civilization to head north to the upper reaches of Canada, since the zombies couldn't traverse in the sustained freezing cold.. Obviously, there's not much of a chance of that happening in Georgia.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 2 Discussion *Spoilers*

Just finished reading Compendium 1 of the comics yesterday (issues 1-48). The first half was a little slow, although ironically I found myself preferring the show's adaptation of events, since it tends to linger on the more emotional stuff whereas the comics just keep going-going-going (Amy's death is a good example). But then the Governor arc in the second half, holy crap, intense stuff! Anyway is there any word on when Compendium 2 is supposed to be out? I'm assuming not until at least issue 96 is out? Dying to know what happens next!

Science and common sense don't work in a zombie show, so don't see why that would be a problem. 100 degree heat (documented on screen by characters digging graves) would pose just as big a problem to a zombie as cold, and that hasn't slowed them down. They should be exploding like over-filled meat balloons all over Georgia...
