in the comic its Carol that takes on a creepy mothering / wanna be wife role with Rick and baby. Wonder how far they take it with beth, if at all.

The word 'zombie' is never said throughout the first season. The zombies are either referred to as "Walkers", "Geeks", "Roamers", "Lamebrains", and to the CDC, "Test Subjects".

Actors who played zombies had to go through zombie school to learn how to walk and move like zombies.

There was a lot of controversy about what Jenner actually said to Rick Grimes just before the survivors left the CDC at the end of season one. In the BluRay edition of TWD season one, if you turn the center channel audio up very high, you can actually hear Jenner say: "It's in your blood. We're all carriers." Rick doesn't divulge this information to the other survivors until the end of season two.

Though we saw Michonne at the end of season two, saving Andrea's life, her actor hadn't even been hired when the episode filmed. Actor Danai Gurira has some pretty big shoes to fill, since Michonne is one of the biggest badasses in the comics.

In the world of The Walking Dead, walkers outnumber the living about 5000 to 1.

The name Edwin Jenner, the doctor at the CDC, is a reference to to Edward Jenner who developed the first vaccine (which was for smallpox).


Daryl Dixon, unlikely fan favorite of the show (played by Norman Reedus) uses a specific type of crossbow, a Horton Scout HD 125. This thing retails for about $300.00 (US) and Reedus has said that he takes it home with him after filming.




In an online interview, it was revealed that Frank Darabont envisioned having several self-contained episodes that would not continue the main story. One such episode would have been the season two premiere. It would have involved Sam Witwer (who Darabont used in The Mist and played the tank zombie in the series premiere) as a solider in a Black Hawk Down style Atlanta. Witwer would have encountered several of the cast before being bit and locking himself in the tank.

Rep that, PBS is monster good. And speaking of DVDs of shows, Catharine and I love waiting, then ordering 2 or 3 Netflix DVDs at once. Dexter or Nurse Jackie for example, we watch 6-9 episodes each weekend, definitely the way to go. You appreciate the shows more, I now notice that Edie Falco is the best actress on the planet.

Seems unfair to wait a week for 44 minutes of series TV.

TV station hacker warns of zombies in Montana


GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) -- A Montana television station's regular programming was interrupted by news of a zombie apocalypse.


The Montana Television Network says hackers broke into the Emergency Alert System of Great Falls affiliate KRTV and its CW station Monday.


KRTV says on its website the hackers broadcast that "dead bodies are rising from their graves" in several Montana counties.


The alert claimed the bodies were "attacking the living" and warned people not to "approach or apprehend these bodies as they are extremely dangerous."


The network says there is no emergency and its engineers are investigating.


A call to KRTV was referred to a Montana Television Network executive in Bozeman. Jon Saunders didn't immediately return a call for comment.


The Great Falls Tribune reports the hoax alert generated at least four calls to police to see if it was true.

PBS is what TV should have evolved into, not the lowest common denominator BS.

They killed Sibyl. I can't forgive them for that.

[QUOTE=Kaylore;3795448]I'm basing my logic off biology. First, Zombies don't drink. Just standing outside, doing nothing at all, you lose water. Your basic motor skills require hydrated muscles to move. Zombies exposed would shrivel up and become immobile in very short order. Second is parasites. I assume that Zombies have no immune system since they are literally rotting as they go. Microbes on your body right now, and in the air, would begin to break down the zombies bodies. The connective tissues would weaken, and with no healing mechanism, the zombies moving would exacerbate the wear and tear.

Logic tells me that the living do not die, then come back as zombies. Nice story trying to convince others using your superior logic lol

Lol. Most of these movies/tv shows make absolutely no ****ing sense. If there really was a zombie outbreak, it would be the least intimidating, least scary, and easiest "apocalypse" scenario for an advanced modern military to deal with.

White house orders would probably be to secure all military bases at any cost, if civilians try to break in for weapons, they would get shot on the spot at 50 yards away to prevent any type of "zombie over running" garbage that you see in the movies.

Places would get cut off, quarantined, entire population centers would be neutralized or at the very least anyone trying to leave said population centers would get shot at a distance to prevent "spreading".

The #1 thing i would be afraid of as a civilian in a zombie apocalypse aint some stupid brainless monster, its the US military bombing every inch of the infested location clean in 1 hour. You think people are so ****ing stupid as to react to a giant infestation that spreads through wounds, blood, water, or air, as to send Search and Rescue teams and risk lives?

LMAO. No. Not in that situation, in that situation, the place gets bombed flat, like nuclear, like ASAP. See what they did with the SARS virus in China? If there is even a chance that you as a human being might be infected with something that spreads rapidly, you will be treated as cattle, PERIOD. And if it makes you a risk to the lives of others, you will be shot or bombed instantly.

Therefore, I'd find a basement/bomb shelter, ****ing fast, when the entire city is rubble and everyone's dead, they'll probably come in for the actual search and rescue with orders that aren't STK on site.

Watched last night's episode and couldn't help to think that a 16 episode season is too long - things are just dragging on. And they have to get rid of Rick crawling all over the prison grounds like Margot Kidder. Bring on more Tyrese already - or at least his hot sidekick, she's smokin!

They are definitely dragging it on and milking it for all its worth. Rick should have his hand cut off by now.

In the walking dead everyone is infected. You can't quarantine something like that.

I thought the first two episodes of the restarted season are pretty weak. Almost 30 minutes into this recent episode and there had not been a zombie yet? WTF is that? Then the bridge scene just seemed put in there for fun.

All that whining set aside, the last scene was pretty creative with the zombie bomb going into the prison. Any thoughts on who the zombie rig driver was and why it looked like they had a gas mask on? I also couldn't quite follow if the driver of the zombie vehicle survived the shootout?

That is what I am wondering too. I didn't think that the driver of the vehicle was ever shot/killed in the shootout and perhaps may have gotten into the prison? That is the only part that got me excited through the whole episode. The rest of it was blah.

I'll the whole third season over the Dawson's Creek Meets The Walking Dead that was the second and the last part of the first season.

But the whole time I'm watching after they crashed the gate I'm screaming that they obviously have a working vehicle so why not plug the gate? It was ridiculous to just stand there and watch the yard fill up.

I'm pissed that they got rid of Tyreece so quickly. He's a really cool character in the comics and should have been heavily involved by now. And the whole "Rick is crazy" feels like a way to fill episodes and simultaneously ruin the characters in the process.

I loved the Talking Dead episode afterwards, though. "Why can't Carol have nice things?"

And I have no idea who the chick driving the zombie bomb was, but I am sure it was a woman.

They needed someone who drives like **** and runs into things. Obviously it was a women. They probably told her to put some makeup on before going to the fence. That way it was a guaranteed "accident" of ramming the gate.

They didn't get rid of Tyrese. He will be back and become a big part of the group. I just think that Rick will have to be a little more in need before he comes back.

In the comics he becomes a leader of the group. I'm sure he will be some sort of leader in the series as well.

I hope so. I like him because he's a football player, so it's my two nerd universes colliding in awesome ways. I like to pretend he's Trevor Pryce.

That is what the show is missing. A Lyle Alzado, John Matuzak steroid/biker infused rage while killing zombies!!!
