I watched the first two episodes "on demand" last night, pretty cool show, I do typically prefer zombie movies to have a little more of the Mirana whatserface from resident evil,,, but so far the show may have me hooked (since weeds, dexter, and SOA have really sucked this year!)

I have been religiously reading The Walking Dead comic book since it started and I must say the show really nails the feel of the comic. The plot is a little different but I cant really complain. And yes, I do actually read comic books.

And personally I have really liked SOA this season.

its on AMC

SOA has gotten better the last 2 weeks, but the first part of the season I thought was god awful

I like that the walking dead is supposed to be in Atlanta (although none of the pics of the city look anything like Atlanta)

The last couple episodes of SOA have gotten really good (since they got to Ireland). And WTF is up with the Dr.'s boss having biker tats? Crazy stuff.

In the comic the small town that the cop is from is Cynthiana, Kentucky which is the hometown of the writer, Robert Kirkman. I was wondering where they shot the scenes in the city. I didnt think it was Atlanta.

I watched the first episode on Hulu and I like it. The starting point has been done before (resident eveil 2, 28 days later,etc..) But i like any post apocalypse (sp?) movie and almost any zombie movie (28 days later included). Something ive never figured out about brain dead, starving zombies though: if they are that hungry why dont they just eat each other? Wouldnt the problem take care of itself after a while?

Zombies have some morals. They can't just start eating their own kind. Or maybe its a flavor thing? They only like fresh meat.

I watched the first two episodes last night (one week tape delay out here). I liked it!

Although, if I had been trapped inside the tank, I would have tried to start it up and drive it out, crushing as many zombies as possible, and perhaps figuring out how to fire the machine guns from inside.

I cant figure out since there are all these tanks, helo's, and such laying around, why are there not an abundance of M-16's laying on the ground? Especially since this is filmed in the south, they just need to go to the local wal mart and steal as many guns and ammo as they need? OF course that would kill some of the story line..

I think the zombies that attacked the campground at the end were brought up by merle in the truck, but thats just my opinion...

only 2 more episodes.. hope they bring it back next year with 12 or 14!

For every zombie created and/or person killed thats one less person scavenging for food, gas and ammo.

Heres a very good article I read a while back about why a zombie apocolypse would fail:

http://www.cracked.c...il-quickly.html

Heres what I never understood about zombies. Humans are zombies food source. Yet humans are also the way zombies reproduce. So as a "species" zombies have to decided between eating or reproducing. How long can a species like that survive? Of course if zombies are already dead, why do they eat? Can they starve?

^Probably not. If you will recall, that was the ultimate solution to the Simpson's gorilla infestation in Springfield. The gorillas had been introduced to kill the snakes, IIRC, whcih had been in to kill the mongooses, which had been brought in to kill the lizards which Bart had accidentally released into the wild. The gorillas would freeze to death once winter came, so all was good in the end.

FW: zombies are not a species. zombies are a disease. Plus, they just crave human flesh. They don't need it to "survive". However, I am uncertain just how long a zombie can "live". The half-bodied zombie in the first episode seems to me to be pretty instructive: at some point, there just won't be enough muscle tissue left for them to move. So the lifespan of a zombie is probably limited by the rate of decomposition. I would think that in a warm climate, like Altanta, they would decompose pretty quickly and become immobile within, say, a week or two.

^^^ What about the opposite. In the freezing weather they would freeze up in no time. Im assuming zombies dont have a nice flow of warm blood to keep them from freezing. Just wait until mid december and go zombie smashing.

The other thing that I dont get in a lot of zombie movies (but on thing that Walking Dead gets right) is the density of zombies. Despite its rather large population the US is, in most areas, rather sparsely populated. Other then the North East and West coast once you get out of major cities you can go miles in any direction and not run into a lot of people. If you factor in the tendancy of zombies to "clump" into massive herds (this is topic is discussed in the Walking Dead comic actually) then it would further concentrate the zombie population and leave even larger sections of country side vacant.

I think it would be fun to sit on top of a 113 with a 50 caliber machine gun and unlimited ammo..


I also hope the writers of this show dont go off the deep end too early (like LOST, Weeds, Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy, etc)

That would have been awesome! When the show started, you could sign-up online to win a chance to become a walk-on extra. I signed up numerous times. Would have been so cool.

went to lunch today to see some of the zombie hoarde by my office. It was pretty cool to see. For those of you who watched the show, al the main characters came over to the "small" yes small crowd of bystanders and let them take pictures and stuff, then they piled into a van to drive off for lunch. I guess all the stage crew are union, and by God, they will stop work at 12:00 and go to lunch!

I should have brought my better camera cause I could have gotten soem good pics If I had a better lense.. will post some crappy camera phone pics shortly!

this is a picture of "Rick" the main character - getting chased by the hoarde, again I will bring the good camera next time!

That is SO cool RG! Thanks for sharing! We actually just re-watched a few episodes this past weekend to re-acclimate ourselves with how the first season ended. Can't wait to start watching the new season. smile.gif

the "crew" people were getting annoyed by all the people with camera's out there, at one point I told them this was a public street and there wasnt much they could do about it..

when I got back to the office... we have traffic cameras all over the county, and we had pulled up the camera at the signal closest by and it was the best seat in the house in terms of watching the "action" I imagine the producers would have a shit fit if they new that they were being watched (and recorded)

I got hooked on this a few weeks ago when I found out I could watch the whole first season on our On-Demand. Season two has been deemed worthy of a "Record Series" on the DVR.

One thing that came to me while watching the beginning of season two listening to the old man bitch about the RV for the ump-teenth time...you've got abandoned cars everywhere, why in god's name do you pick the old crappy RV?

I'm actually a little surprised at some of the stuff they are getting away with on Walking Dead and even more so on American Horror Story on FX....AHS is borderline HBO type stuff.

On a side note, from what I saw in the commercials for the new western series coming to AMC in the beginning of November looks like it might be promising too. Forget the name but it starts Nov. 6 I think.

The first two have been pretty good. The antagonist redneck has turned into a good guy overnight but other than that its keeping the same feel. I hope it doesnt slow down too much though. Theyre supposed to be headed to some fort and theve only gotten a few miles before they had to stop for (at least) two episodes.

its been pretty good so far, kept my attention, but its starting to slow down a bit each episode, I guess with the AMC budget they cant afford to have more than 10 minutes of "shooting zombies and stuff" each episode...

I don't think you can apply logic to a science fiction show:)


But since we are.... Do we really think that the entire military with automatic weapons, napalm, etc could get over run?

One company of rangers held off the entire city of Mogadishu and those people were alive and shooting back!

Agreed on the military being able to hold their own.

No, I'm pretty sure that the military would be able to hold their own, especially in the armored vehicles. I've considered what I would do during a Zombie apocalypse, and the first thing I would do is find an armored vehicle and stock it full of food. I'd prefer an MRAP, because it has more room for excess food and guns, but I'd make do with a High Maneuverability Military Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV - Humvee). I'd also make sure I had a battle buddy to man the M240B mounted in the turret while I drive and we could switch off with driving / gunning duties. This seems like the most realistic survival plan that I can think of, keep the team small so it's easier to identify infections and easier to communicate, and be surrounded by bite proof steel and high quality firepower.

I like your plan. But to take it one step further, I'm currently in search of a contractor that can begin construction on my new zombie-proof house. ;)

1. I don't believe Zombies really decompose, at least once they are Zombies. The decomposed zombies are ones that where killed human, infected but not changed yet, then their bodies start to decompose before they are animated.

2. While Zombies don't decomposed, they don't heal either so any damage inflicted will be forever.

3. A Hummer would be a pretty poor choice IMHO, the roof turret isn't really secure, and Zombies can break glass, -a typical Hummer isn't armored at all.

4. The military would hold their own, maybe, much of the Infantry tactics and skills are based upon removing units from action, not zombies, weapons like smart bombs are pretty much worthless if considered on a scale of what resources you use to number of zombies killed. Given it takes head shot to stop the enemy, I could see some soldiers utilizing their entire 300 round load out and stopping only 10% of the enemy. Sucess would depend on effective retraining and excellent leadership. Ie some units would survive, but not all.

Yea the fact that all the military (or at least that around Atlanta) is wiped out is not believable. I have to admit I did not see the mid-season grand finale coming. I wont ruin it for anyone that hasnt seen it yet, but suffice it to say they dont have any reason to stay at the farm (ie really inexpensive set) anymore.

when we were watching some of the filming this past summer, it at least looked like a lot of action, it was Rick running through a 3 lane road while looking hurt, with a ton of zombies chasing him.. of course they shot the same scene about 20 times so maybe it was just a little action..

I am hoping they will use the mid season break to fire the writers and go back to last season's writers, but I am doubtful that will happen, this season is like they hired a bunch of writers that normally write for lifetime movies...

2nd half of the season has been a little better than the first.. the last 10 minutes of last night was pretty good (wont give it away if you havent seen it yet)

But so now, once you die, you automatically become a zombie even if your not bitten? I hope they xplain that willis!
