I'm fine with either, as long as we keep the comic and the show in separate threads

Looks pretty good, I've always been more of a fan of initial zombie outbreak/panic stuff. Does this actually have its own comic series/spinoff from the Walking Dead or is it entirely new stuff?

Trailer was better than expected. Was going to watch either way.

Haha, would be pretty hard to post spoilers for this one since no comics exist about this. Kirkman use to say he didn't really care to depict how everything started out or go into detail about it, so it'll be interesting to see how this plays out.

new rule:

when in this thread, talking about how good or bad or this show is, you must use the word "wuality"

Did it seem odd to anyone else that kids were being dismissed early from school because someone was shot in the street by police? Or was there another reason for the dismissal?

Perhaps fear of backlash from the public/community for an officer involved shooting?

Because there was video of the shooting, and it showed the guy eating the paramedic, and then taking a severe beating, then taking a bunch of bullets while continuing to come at the cops....

and the fat kid with the scarring acne said that there were several weird incidents in several states, that the media was claiming weren't related, but he new it was some kind of virus.... so if he figured it out, I'm sure the officials had figured it out and just hadn't told the public yet out of fear of mass panic.

and the first episode was slow, but that's to be expected since they're showing the very beginning, I'm sure it will pick-up in the next couple of episodes.

Im wondering why the East Coast people didnt know that anyone can turn after they die (versus only turning after being bit). They didnt find this out until the 3rd season or so, right?

I thought this was excellent television. Looking forward to seeing how it progresses because Korrlls Dad was in hospital with coma for like 2 weeks and when he came out it had all gone to shiznittt.

So I guess they can't be dilly dallying around forever like in Strain where everybody just seemed to ignore the gross face hugger vampire epidemic until the end of season 2.

They made references to the idea that the guy shot by police may have had some kind of crazy flu. The guy who checked the school bus and found only 5 kids on it turns to the two police at the door of the school and makes a remark about if they had their flu shots or not IIRC.

We're gonna pick this one apart piece by piece too? Ok, I'll play.

If you noticed the classroom shots, there were lots of empty desks. There were quite a few references to the high truancy rate at school. The "fever" or whatnot. But why so many people out of school?

If THAT many children are out of school, and you have missing posters up everywhere, then to me, the shit's already gone down. You don't just get sick from this virus, you either die after bitten and come back, or come back after you die from any other cause, but in this universe, the virus itself doesn't kill you. If that many kids were out of school from say, zombie cannibalism, then we're already be in an outbreak scenario.

Maybe children are more vulnerable to the virus, and some can come down with a fever without being bitten?

it was obvious the drug dealer was taking him down to kill him as soon as he put his arm around him in the diner

I still don't see how walkers could take down the world

I think the movie Maggie is the worst it would ever get to in real life

Because anyone who dies comes back as a walker, and anyone who's bitten comes back as a walker, and people don't know you have to head shot them and not get bitten, and almost no one has more than a few says worth of food around. As soon as supply systems shut down, most people are going to die and turn into a walker.

Think of the LA riots. Police were non existent because they were spread so thin.

So when the calls flood the departments there isn't enough police to prevent looters. Then people notice and start rioting. Then the military, national guard, police, etc are dealing with both an outbreak and normal people.

And to reinforce the point, minus headshot, you die in any way you turn into a walker.

I've also loved the fact that in this universe nobody has ever mentioned the word zombie. They have no idea what that concept is.

yeah it would be chaos and all, and the local police would probably fail

but by the time 28 days have gone by, the military would probably have figured out head shots early on, and since they were slow, they would have the situation under control

im thinking 35% of the population lost at the most

or course then if everone who dies from now on comes back, that would change the way hospitals, nursing homes, etc work (ie restain at least one limb of every patient to the bed)

but what about people that die at home, I suppose mini-outbreaks would continue to happen

and like I said, Maggie was a good movie from "that" perspective

They didn't say "zombie", but that kid with the knife definitely seemed like he had some understanding of the whole thing. Seemed more like he was scared to say the word "zombie" because he knew the teacher wouldn't believe him or would think he was crazy.

I mean even when we had that dude with the bath-salts actually eating people's faces off, the media and everyone chuckled at the thought of him being a zombie but just accepted that he was having a horrible drug incident. They even pointed out the short-comings of the government/media by saying "if something was happening, officials would let us know wouldn't they?"

In this situation though, makes it easier to believe the outbreak success rate when you assume the average person doesn't understand the concept of a zombie or how to kill one.

There's no way the military could "police" every town in america. And soon after it all started going down, society would quickly crumble and it'd be the Wild West in every city, every town, every village in America. And like the shows show, it wouldn't just be the zombies that would be dangerous, it'd be the citizens trying to survive, or taking advantage of the situation. I could easily see how the whole country/world would quickly go to shit.

(then there's all the other factors that would come into play: police and military personnel abandoning their posts, government crumbling, stupid and helpless people dying off in droves, people trying to protect their zombie loved-ones, etc. etc.)

Teenage Tom Riddle got HOT


I totally thought the old man in the hospital was going to die in his bed and then turn and attack Nick in his bed while his arms were restrained.

So are they going to delve into how the virus actually started or what? I thought this would have more of an origin story feel, not just a vague reference to some shit in the midwest

Well if nobody in The Walking dead knows where it came from then probably it was never figured out.

Is this show a parody of itself at this point? I mean in the first two episodes, two characters who could end up being long running characters die in the first two episodes, and they just happen to be black men?
