lemme tell you guys what walking dead is and is not about

it isn't about the endless chase for some stupid plot device like a cure or a safe haven. its not about rambo killing millions of zombies. its not about hope, or tomorrow or even the past.

its a modern tale of job without the godjob at the end. its about a good, decent man, an officer of the law, one of the best of us, a normal guy that is willing to do the right thing regardless of the personal sacrifices and consequences, and what he becomes when everything is slowly stripped away from him in this new world where he really has no place in the new society. how much can rick endure before he becomes something worse than shane?

so you can go ahead and wipe away those silly dreams of all the zombie films you've ever seen where the two young lovers get away in an airplane at the end, it just ain't gonna ever happen. and if that's what you need from television, is something that's wrapped up in a nice little bow and delivered on a tray beside a bowl of chicken soup, then you're watching the wrong show.

this is more like the original night of the living dead, where you survive the night only to be shot in the brain by another living human.

that's what this is about. cutting off someone's hand, a good person's hand that you've survived with since the beginning because they won't let go of you while they're being dragged down by a horde of dead people

sooooooooooooo... what you're saying is that somebody's going to lose a hand? ;)

that's the point. nowhere is safe, there's no cure, all that's left is surviving

there is always a cure or safe place in theory. The possiblity is the only thing that can keep it going. Otherwise, might as well turn the show off.

there's always the mirage of a safe haven, but everything you do just rings a dinner bell...unless you manage to make it out to an isolated island, but even then you just don't know

the minute you think you're safe, you're dead
