I also am interested in how it came to be that everyone is now infected. How can that happen? Was it a natural environmental trigger like that terrible M. Night Shamalamadingdong movie "The Happening"? Was it governmental experimenting with mass mind control like the conspiracy theories on chemtrails. Vaccines for viruses?
They never really explained that in the show or the comics. I wonder if they will ever explain it.
Probably not. I don't think that's kirkmans style.
Off topic, but one of the things that always bothers me about zombie apocalypse movies/games. Does anyone think that slow moving weak zombies could actually cause the entire US military and communications infrastructure to fail in just a matter of weeks?
I think I read that the spin off show may tackle the very beginning of the story and cover some of this. That to me would be pretty interesting in its own right.
I am watching Dawn of the Dead right now and of course have played The Last of Us at least a dozen times start to finish in addition to dozens of other zombie movies/games and that has always been the first thing I wondered about. How could entire infrastructure fail seemingly overnight?
I ask this with full appreciation of suspension of disbelief in these type of shows. I still enjoy them
Probably mass panic and confusion. At first you wouldn't know that it is actually zombies so everyone getting medical treatment who died would come back all in the area of medical professionals. If we are going by TWD rules everyone is already infected so once you died you come back regardless of bites. So everyone dying of natural causes or anything really except for gunshot wounds to the head would be coming back as well. Mostly being dumped in mass graves so you'd have all those zombies in concentrated areas throughout the entire country all hitting pretty much simultaneously. So now you how every major city and town being overwhelmed with every one of those places dealing with their own problems. You'd get some beating it but there would be so much loss in the first few waves that chain of command probably breaks down pretty quickly.
What is really frustrating is that Alexandria has endured with it's wall despite the complete incompetence of the people there. Did I miss something as to why they are still safe? It can't just be because of the walls. Deanna's whole BS about "we don't kill people" was annoying. How long has it been since the world went sideways? 2-3 years? And they haven't killed anyone? That close to a mega population center like DC?
There's got to be something more to their safety. That's been my TWD annoyance this morning!
They said since most of DC/MD/VA was evacuated that there wasn't many zombies or people to worry about since the fall of everything. That's why they've had it pretty easy.
The signings we've had so far our what I've expected. Grabbing Jennings is something I didn't think possible so if we do I'll be extremely excited over.
Other then that this team is setup of amazingly for the draft and for the future as a whole.
A lot of people will read the OP was a bitching and crying about Gettleman has a whole instead of his word choice. While I don't agree with being upset at his word choice I understand where you are coming from.
We have all the characters necessary, we have the great locker room.
Plus id love to let the world see an unbiased depiction of Cam. One that isn't media or ratings driven. Just cam being himself and how he prepares. That would go along way for changing the national perception of Cam.
News reports like these are exceptions not rules. For every one story we see like this you bet your ass there are 5+ that get swept under the rug because cops protect their own and this poo just continues on
I don't know how anyone can constantly and consistently see news reports like these or videos in which cops are straight up killing people and act like there isn't something wrong with the way our police force operates and its fuging scary. All it takes is one asshole cop to make a persons life miserable and the overwhelming percent of the time nothing bad happens to officer. It's sick.
i hope you don't view this as an actual problem. worrying about job security for prison personnel seems antithetical to the goal of prison systems as social correction and rehabilitation facilities.
prison guards hitting the unemployment line sounds like progress to me.
This exact point was in the documentary. Something along the lines of Vice squads being shut down because of legalization and how that's a terrible excuse not to legalize.
I think there's strong minority of people in power in this country who have made sooo much money from it being illegal they've ingrained it into the system. They've done a great job of forcing our most recent presidents in keeping tough on marijuana. For all of obamas time smoking in high school and college he's been the harshest of presidents when it comes to enforcing federal raids.
I could see him catching like 60 balls for 800-900 yards and 5-6 tds in our offense as the number three easy along with Olsen and KB. Our offense would instantly be respecting in the passing game all we would need to do is solidify the o-line and we'd be in business.
