The Walking Dead seems to be losing its luster this season. This season started off with a bang, but the last two episodes lacked certain moments of suspense. I know that the show centers on the group, but there must be at the same time anxiety along with common sense.
Lack of Common Sense
The zombie in the well, this showed a total lack of common sense, especially on Glenn’s part. Having a zombie stuck in a well was not bad, but the way in which the team went to remove him was. First trying to bait the walker with food and second using a live human being to seek to rope the zombie face to face.
What ever happened just to form a lasso and bring the walker up that way, after all, it does not matter where one looks the walker. It makes perfect sense to me to climb down on a rope and try it that way rather than lassoing the walker from the safety of terra firma. This was not Glenn’s week of course not only did he do that crazy stunt but he had to top it.
The topper, of course, was when Glenn and his new found love went on a drug store raid on horseback. The problem here, of course, was there was no walkers’ period around a small town and no sign of corpses as around the other places where they have traveled.
Then they tie up the horses out front and proceed to the drug store to have a sexual encounter. This made perfect sense to strip and have sex with live bait outside, [Horses] and the entrance door not secured. I might guess that this town was Walker free and they must have known it.
The walkers in the previous episode, however, were all over the FEMA site at the school. After watching Glenn in action, I am amazed he has made it this far. Hopefully, the writers will do a better job in the future.
The Walking Dead Online The series that will appear on AMC on Halloween Sunday the 31st at 9 pm and should be a credit to the comic of the same name. The comic version was written by Robert Kirkman and artist Tony Moore who later was replaced by Charlie Adlard. This is a must see for zombie enthusiasts. Watch the walking dead online here.
As the story unfolds a sheriff, Rick Grimes is shot and wounded and taken to a hospital where when he awakes he discovers he is alone and zombies are everywhere. He eventually gathers his family and friends, and they decide on what to do.
The story is similar to other zombie movies as it is an apocalypse and the zombies are everywhere. This will make it in a way similar to other versions. The zombies can be killed traditionally by shooting them in the head. The story will center on a combination of individuals who have gathered in Atlanta because that is where they were told to go for help.
Unlike other zombie movies when a person is bitten they can cut off the infected area and will survive. Bites are what spread this infection from person to person. This series will be very similar in this respect as well.
Zombies can be domesticated or at least taught not to bite their loved ones. This is done by letting them stay with people until they are used to them.
People, on the other hand, can blend in with zombies by putting zombie fluids on them. This will make them smell like the other zombies, and they will not attack. Zombies in this respect use their sense of smell more in this series than in other zombie type movies.
When bitten and death occurs reanimation can happen in minutes or hours depending, making this a little more intense. In the classics, they always seem to reanimate within the same time frames.
All in all, I am personally am looking forward to this series and will follow it throughout.
