Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

Maybe we just found ground zero? Yeah, that's it! The zombie rising started at the retirement community next door (outside of camera shot) and the employees/members were trapped at the country club.

[snob] Well, when you've been waiting for MONTHS to get a tee time, you aren't going to cancel just because of a minor zombie apocalypse, are you? I mean, sure they're firebombing Atlanta, but that's mostly minorities and poor people, so oh well... [/snob]

Yea, some golfers are strange birds. I've seen them out on the green [actually brown grass] in 15 degree weather, in the middle of a rain storm and other odd times when most people would have passed on a hobby.

Doesn't explain why the worker bees would show for work though.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

Was anyone else hoping for a Caddy shack reference/easter egg? Maybe a zombie made up to look like Bill Murray's character? Which would have been deliciously meta considering his spot in Zombieland.

Um, that's not Daryl.

LOL
Is from a movie called Pandorum a movie that Norman Reedus starred in, in 2009, this photo isn't from The Walking Dead even though it looks like it could be.

Just thought I'd put a little scare into a few folks.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

Nope, that's straight up lazy writing. Looks kewl to put zombies into costumes and make it look like it swept through the area and caught people unaware. Even though they already showed that it wasn't instantaneous and that there was at least a brief struggle before things went tits up. Enough time to get off the course, at least...

MAYBE if you pretend that the entire fall of civilization only took an hour or two, and they were caught out on the course for a while, THEN you could have people decide to stay rather than go elsewhere. Maybe the majority of the workers left, and it was just the grounds crew, caddies, and golf pros that were out of touch of tv/radio, and didn't have their phones on them?

While not impossible, likely still pretty silly, especially once the military jets and whatnot start turning Atlanta into rubble. And seems like you'd be talking more a couple days for things to really go south at the start, as you're starting with a much smaller number of zombies at the get-go, and even if it takes a little while to reanimate, be a few days between very first cases and deploying the military to destroy a major city. They'd try to understand what was happening, quarantine, etc first. Enough time to finish your round of golf and go home.

Yeah, what time does last night's episode take place? I think I saw a building burning in the background during Tyrese's story. Could last night's episode take place directly after the prison escape?
I'll look at and update my timeline this afternoon when I'm at the computer but Beth and Daryl should be on the night of the day Rick woke from his coma/they found the boxcar to Terminus.
Is that the color coded timeline I'm seeing floating around on the net?
I saw one a few days ago but I can't find the link now.
No, it's one I did in writing here last week. Okay here's what I have:

The Afternoon/Evening the Prison Fell:
1. Rick and Carl escape together and raid a nearby bar for supplies and settle in an unoccupied home for the night.

2. Tyrese and the children escape the prison and make camp for the night. (Lizzie slaughters some bunnies.)

3. Maggie, Bob and Sasha make their way to a nearby lake to make camp but Maggie wants to find Glenn, they find the prison bus (stopped with the occupants killed and turned) they kill the Walkers inside the bus to look for Glenn and do not find him.

4. Daryl and Beth escape and make camp.

5. Michonne puts-down turned Hershel, finds herself two new familiars and sets off, makes camp in an abandoned car.

6. Glenn wakes up on the ruined catwalk, gathers some supplies and sets off to find Maggie. He runs into Tara and the two team-up to escape. They encounter a small group of Walkers on their way out and kill them, Glenn passes out as he's still suffering from the flu. They're rescued by Abraham and his group and are taken towards to Washington D.C. Glenn wakes up from passing out a couple hours later and finds himself in Abraham's truck. He gets them to stop, there's a confrontation and eventually some Walkers attack. The fight critically damages the army truck so the group heads back the way they came using notes Tara took. (There's no indication a night passed in Glenn's storyline. When he wakes up on the truck from passing out he asks Tara if they passed the bus and she said they did a couple hours earlier and they were "all dead." So obviously this was after Maggie, Bob and Sasha had been through there. When Glenn wakes up on the ruined catwalk we still see smoldering fires from the wreckage and Tara slightly catatonic having isolated herself inside a pen. Again, no indications Glenn was unconscious for nearly a full day between him leaving the bus when the prison fell and when we see him wake up on the catwalk.)

7. Carol sees the prison fall, presumably makes camp and eventually loses her car.

The Day After the Fall of the Prison.
1. Rick spends the day in a coma, Carl tries to find supplies on his own.

2. Tyrese and the girls make their way around the area presumably looking for other survivors or suitable shelter. They encounter some Walkers attacking another group of human survivors, as well as meet-up with Carol. They find the signs "advertising" the "Terminus" sanctuary.

3. Maggie, Bob, Sasha: Unknown, apparently we'll find out next week.

4. Daryl and Beth try to find survivors and come across the trail left earlier by Tyrese and the girls. That evening they come across a herd of Walkers and hide in the trunk of an abandoned vehicle.

5. Michonne, slaughters a small herd of Walkers as well as her familiars and makes her way back to a trail she saw earlier. (Rick and Carl's.) Presumably at some point makes camp.

6. Glenn and Tara: Unknown.

7. Carol: Runs into Tyrese and the girls.

Two Days after the Prison Fell:
1. Rick spends the day recovering from his injuries. While resting inside the house he nearly has an encounter with another group of scavengers but manages to escape unnoticed. Carl spends the day with Michonne as the two connect more. They escape the house and find directions to "Terminus."

2. Tyrese, Carol and the children: Unknown. Presumably in "Terminus."

3. Maggie, Bob and Sasha: Unknown

4. Daryl and Beth: Beth has an urge to have her first drink as she continues to pretty much be a pest towards Daryl. But the two eventually connect and Daryl helps Beth get her first drink, moonshine. The two managed to connect on some level, Daryl facing some past hardships and demons the two burn the moonshine shack and leave after dark.

5. Michonne, eventually catches with Rick and Carl. Her and Carl scavenge for supplies in the surrounding neighborhood.

6. Glenn and Tara: Unknown.

Heavy handed social commentary from out of touch writers/producers. That was as bad as latter day George Romero, where the soapbox is a hammer, rather than a spark for thought.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 4

well...I suppose it's possible that as the clothes they were wearing wore down they had to wear stuff from the pro shop - so they weren't necessarily the clothes they were wearing at the time of the outbreak or even when they got to the clubhouse. Right? Right?!?!?!

Bothered me too. There is no way someone who has never had alcohol before would react that way to moonshine. Not to mention playing drinking games with it, let alone still being able to speak the english language.

Oh yeah, and she probably did that drinking on a mostly empty stomach too, which certainly wouldn't help matters, as many of us can probably attest to personally.
That's The Walking Dead--always solid with the realistic details!

Here's the color coded one: http://i.imgur.com/QbPBK7i.jpg

It's pretty helpful to grasp everything. I'm guessing Daryl and Beth are gonna be late to terminus, if they both make it that is. I think Daryl will at least. But maybe the writers aren't actually mapping things out, which I might bet on more. There's likely to be issues with this by the end of the season.

About the early days of the apocalypse or other issues of science, the writers just don't give it that much thought. It's a TV show about magic, not a documentary about science. They probably aren't considering those details much because they don't deal with the thrust of the show. It's probably part of why Rick just wakes up a few weeks in. A realistic take of how it happens could be interesting, but that's just not what Walking Dead is about.

Speaking of Terminus, I'm wondering if it's a train station that transports people to VA outside of DC? Since they've been trapped in Middle GA for nearly 2 years despite have cars it seems unlikely they would be able to drive to D.C. What about some sort of train?
