Hehe, yeah, I know, I'm not seriously bothered by it. If I was watching a show for realism, it wouldn't be one about zombies.

They did a really good job of that, though - making him look like a bad ass. As soon as they walked into the kitchen area with the pans and flame going, I was like "Oh man..."

Great episode.


Anyone else get initial LOST hatch vibes from the CDC guy?

I think the best episode since the pilot, some of the scenes in this ep were extremely strong.

When it got to the ending I could really feel the panic and desperation they were felling, it was great.

Seems like the current trend in the series is 1 action oriented zombie episode then 1 character oriented dialogue episode.

I think they are replacing the fenced encampment with the CDC building, which makes sense since the CDC building would be far more defensible against these more active zombies than cyclone fence.

I also like the addition of the scientist who has gone half-mad from loneliness.

My favorite quote from the show: "I think I'll blow my brains out tomorrow, but I haven't decided yet. But tonight, I'm getting drunk."

I also like that this pretty much just throws you for a loop if you are a comic fan. Like it appears thatShane is gonna survive much longer than his comic counterpart, and while most of the characters ended up being zombie fodder, they did serve a hell of a purpose in this episode with some of the "death" scenes.

The scene with the sisters was SO incredibly strong. Every part of it. One of the best scenes I've seen.

Really nice episode. Only 1 left for this season, right?

To be honest, I didn't really like this episode. I mean, it was still a good episode - just in comparison to the others I didn't like it as much. However everything that happened after the scientist was introduced was the best I've seen from the show so far.

I could be wrong, its been a long time since I've read it from the beginning, but I don't think it was ever explained. And is the why that important?

What caused the "outbreak", if there is one, is irrelevant. As Hitchcock would say, it is the "McGuffin". Taking time and effort to explain the cause of the zombie apocalypse would 1) take away from the story and 2) cause inevitable disappointment because what the authors believe caused the event would fail compared to the expectations of the audience.

My big question is: When will they reveal that you don't have to be bitten or be "infected" to turn into a zombie? All you have to do is die of any cause and you end up a walking man-eating corpse. For me, that reveal in the comic was the most chilling of all; the realization that everyone will end up a zombie in the end... they are all The Walking Dead.

I'm a bit annoyed by how the characters don't care about getting covered with zombie gore. Hacking in on your dead husband is nice and all, but aren't you afraid of getting infected?

I could be mistaken, but this hasn't been an airborne virus? I mean they've had zombie brains and guts on them before, and never got infected.

Also agree with Prof, the explanation as to why isn't important at all nor do I think the survivors care, doubt they are looking for a cure.
