The Walking Dead 24-Mar
Second to last episode! Merle's death was a little bit more emotional than I had expected....though I think most of us predicted Daryl having to kill his own brother. I guess cutting Michonne free was his last attempt at some kind of redemption.
I liked the episode though, not too bad. I'm liking Carol more and more. Good for Glenn and Maggie. I got a chuckle out of this new way of ring shopping. Attract a bunch of dead girls then cut off their fingers....sure as hell cheaper than shopping at Jareds.

The Walking Dead Mar-17
Can't remember the episode number...but only two episodes left!
As is tradition here....what did you all think last night? Things are getting pretty dark with that torture chair. Andrea is in a pickle now...at least her hair still looks good, lol. I gotta give it to her, her opening of the zombie stairwell was pretty clever. Man if I was the Guv I would be pissed, lol.

Walking Dead Zombie Theories
Alright, this is pretty much just a thread to discuss different theories on the zombies in TWD.
Here is the first question (the rest will come as this thread hopefully progresses): They say that only the most primal region of our brain, does this mean zombies can't walk?
I mean if they can't learn or remember past experiences than they wouldn't be able to walk as we learn to walk.

Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 8 Mid Season Finale
Okay so play by play.
New people have shown up with a new black dude so the inmate is a dead duck.
Glenn got some more badass points after "arming" Maggie.
Didn't show the Woodbury infiltration. Not shocked.
Y U NO SHOOT HIM MAGGIE?!
Those smoke grenades or tear gas? I'm inclined to go with smoke since no tears but where did they get them from?
Axel is creeping me out although LOL at his gaffe. I do not predict blondie surviving...either of them.
Good job at getting Maggie and Glenn.
Michonne why the hell are you going to the governors quarters? What did he do aside from making your paranoia twitch?
First look on her face besides anger and she made me laugh.
Um chains, head cover, straightjacket. Three good reasons to not unhook the sucker before peeking under the hood.
Oh look the black dude died. Shocked I'm not.
Daryll's gonna get caught.
Michonne why exactly did you not toss his zombie pet at him and attack then? By stabbing her you just made it harder to get your weapon...
...and you're getting your ass beat up as a result. Gotta admit though you can take a punch.
...Why exactly did you spin? Stab him. No muss or fuss.
Oh look...it's Andrea...kill her.
Merl...is in deep ****. A woman he claimed to have killed just went semi-sorta-not-biblical on the Guv's head.
Carl's going off alone...before checking on Carol and Axel. :/
They meet...why are you leading a hazmat back to your people?
Nevermind he contained them...I give him 2 points for badass. He should have had backup in the first place.
Rick's pissed at Michonne for ditching them. I see no fault with it but is that really the place to hash it out?

Do you think that a town like Woodbury (The Govenor's town in The Walking Dead) is a likely possiblility in a zombie apocalypse?
With a population of 75 scavenging would not be enough.
The show concentrates on the defense of the community and doesn't touch much on the day to day struggles. Logistics are important, sanitation is important, plumbing is important, agriculture is important, fuel is important. Without the mundane things that we take for granted a community of this size wouldn't thrive.
Yes I realize that this is a TV show and it's all about the action and drama. The things I've mentioned would put most viewers to sleep.
Just wondered if I was the only one thinking about all that would be involved in keeping a community of this size afloat.

The Walking Dead Dead: Season3 Episode 7
So what did everyone think last night? I thought it was a damn good episode. I take back what I said before about Glenn not really being considered 'muscle' in the group. He held up to interrogation well, landed a sweet head butt, and ended up killing a walker while duct taped to a chair.
I was glad to see Rick finally speaking to his son. I still say it should have happened sooner, but show structure I guess. I thought it was pretty interesting how they ran into the hermit out in the woods too. That part I think is definitely feasible. Being forced to quickly enter a home out in the middle of no where, and being confronted with by someone who has gone a little nutsy. I will say though....I was kind of hoping they would use that scene to introduce Morgan and his son again. I got excited...just for a second.
Anyway, to the military/LE folks here, how would you conduct the raid that Rick's group is about to do? I was thinking about it last night. They don't know how big the compound is, where Glenn and Maggie are being held, what kind of numbers or weapons they're running into, etc.
Would it make more sense to have one of your group go off into the woods and create a distraction to draw away a certain part of their force? Or does that just create an additional risk when you've completed your objective and you're getting out of there?
Edit: Yes I'm aware the main discussion line has Dead twice. My bad.

Quite Possibly the Most Fatal Flaw of TWD
I believe that I have discovered the absolute most fatal flaw in the The Walking Dead (TWD) series.
it takes place in the US state of Georgia
the virus has infected 100% of humanity
the virus has killed off the clear majority of humanity
Guns are the best way to deal with zed walkers and just about everything else
Rick is a deputy sheriff from *BFE county, GA
Rick and some other characters are from *BFE county in GA
some of the story takes place in Atlanta
one of the possible places to go was Ft Benning
it's presumed that Hershel's Farm, "Woodbury" and the prison are all South of Atlanta in the direction of Ft Benning
Well then, am I the only one who knows about the 'famous' city near Atlanta where it's required by LAW for households to have firearms?
In 1982 the city passed an ordinance [Sec 34-21]
(a) In order to provide for the emergency management of the city, and further in order to provide for and protect the safety, security and general welfare of the city and its inhabitants, every head of household residing in the city limits is required to maintain a firearm, together with ammunition therefore.
(b)Exempt from the effect of this section are those heads of households who suffer a physical or mental disability which would prohibit them from using such a firearm. Further exempt from the effect of this section are those heads of households who are paupers or who conscientiously oppose maintaining firearms as a result of beliefs or religious doctrine, or persons convicted of a felony.
Yes, Kennesaw, GA! Where even if 80-90% of the population went dead or dead-ish, about 99% of the households, trucks, hidden rocks and bunkers in that city have GUNS. And with a population of 29K+, that could mean 15K in guns.
Now, Rick the law-dog, should know or recall that simple fact. Hell, I do.

You're now a character in The Walking Dead: How do you survive?
So in this alternate reality you've found yourself among Rick Grime's group in the early cannon of The Walking Dead. Suspend your disbelief ladies and gentlemen, because the dead walk the Earth, and they do so by shambling and being really dumb. Rednecks carry crossbows and if you poke really hard, you can stick a tire iron through a head.
What do you carry on your person? What suggestions do you make to the leaders of the group? How do you go about dispatching Walkers when you meet them? How do you avoid becoming too popular so Robert Kirkman doesn't kill you off?
EDIT. If you leave the group, where do you go? How do you as a Walking Dead character roll?
Suspend your disbelief and have fun with this.

Take the Walking Dead quiz and find out which character you are.

Would you have fortified and defended Hershal's farm?
If you didn't have all the TWD drama and a little boy who was never watched going on in your group what would you have done as far as planning if it was you and your group living on Hershal's farm?
Would you have used all the cool things like a backhoes, tractors, stock trailers, T-posts, woven wire, barbed wire, electric fence wire, junk pile, hay equipment, welders, chainsaws, generators, carpenter tools, garden tools, ect... to fortify your position or would all of your planning went into an extreme bug out plan that would get you out of the area before the first walker stepped foot on the property?
NO, you do not get Hershal's "infinity ammo" shotgun. Sorry.
I think I found the secret behind Hershal's shotgun.
Hershal had the stealth version of the XRail on his shotgun in the final episode of The Walking Dead.
This is how he could shoot so many times without reloading. Mystery solved.

The Walking Dead
Before AMC released The Walking Dead: Season One TV series, I have read the survival horror fiction graphic novel books:
The Walking Dead
Publisher: Image Comics
Writer: Robert Kirkman
Artists: Tony Moore (Chapter 1) and Charlie Adlard (Chapter 2-12)
The Walking Dead: Book One (Hardcover) (Issue 1-12 or Chapter 1-2 Trade Paperbacks)
Before AMC released cable TV series The Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman created and then Image Comics published The Walking Dead that appeared first and began in the late 2003. Sheriff Rick Grimes wakes from coma at hospital. He doesnít know how the zombie apocalypse began. He is seeking his wife Lori and his son Carl. Glenn shows Rick to meet them and the survivors, Shane, Dale, Andrew, and others at camping site. The Walking Dead is the damn good Zombie Apocalypse drama story. It is a continuing story of survival horror. Of course, survival is a key to keep your life in the zombie apocalypse. The Walking Dead have won the Einser Award for the best ongoing comic book series.
The Walking Dead: Book Two (Hardcover) (Issue 13-24 or Chapter 3-4 Trade Paperbacks)
The prison could be the best protection place for zombie survivors. It keeps zombies outside from attacking humans. Most violent prisoners escaped from the prison and the prison guards since zombie apocalypse began, but a few prisoners decided to stay at prison. Humans may be the prisoners of Zombie Apocalypse, right? Michonne is added as a supporting character. She is armed with her katana sword, like a samurai or ninja warriorís. It is the double-handed sword that is used in the ancient Japan and today. It provides the strength and accuracy for perfect decapitation.

Halloween is upon us (Best Holiday Ever) and the premier of season 2 of The Walking Dead is close at hand.
So this being a zombie site I'm doing something to celebrate the event.
The ZSDW throws a party and everybody is invited. What sort of zombie/halloween-related beverage/food item would you bring?
I'd bring some Headshots.
Dark red fruit punch with shreds of orange and pinapple pulp (grey matter) served in a shotgun shell glass with ice cubes shaped like shotgun slugs. It's boring but I always get a cringe over the grey matter bit ;)
