mcreadyblue: FinFangFark: The Banana Thug: NeoCortex42: I hope they don't go the comic route with Negan. Issue #100 was basically "It's out hundredth issue, let's due something SHOCKING."

Agreed. #100 and #104 both border on absurd. By that point, I would be okay if the show takes a total departure from the comic, right around when the group reaches Arlington. **SPOILER** A lot of the stuff gets very repetitive after that point - "Oh look here's a safe place, let's stay here and reinforce it! Oh noes, we're overrun! Evacuate, repeat again." The show should target for about 6 seasons, with a tie-up-all-loose-ends conclusion about why we're all infected and how.

#100 pissed me off to no end. I remember there were rumors that #100 would have the ultimate shocker of Rick being the one who died...and the previous issue covers let you to believe it could be Andrea.

I bet like having the Gov cutting off Rick's arm, Kirkman will regret what he did in #100.

Budgetary reasons preclude Ricks arm from being chopped off.


Well it's grown back a couple times. Issue 43 and one of the late 90s I believe.

The Banana Thug: FinFangFark: The Banana Thug: GlobalStrategic MapleSyrup Reserve: I'm just going to come out and address that Oscar wasn't in the comic. You're thinking Dexter and between Tomas and Andrew they pretty much covered his part.

If they can just skip **that** part of the comic for the show... I'd be okay with it. Something tells me they won't, because those characters are still alive and yet not an integral part of the main group. That was one of the four most disturbing moments in the comic, the other three being issue #100, the comic version of how Lori died, and what might happen in the very next episode at Woodsbury.

let's not forget the really odd sequence with Jim's twins, and what happened. But that really didn't bother me as the moments you've mentioned...I kinda felt that was a justified story based on all the trauma the kids are going through.

Oh yea, Jim's twins... That wasn't so much as a sickening stomach-punch as it was a "what the farkity fark!" moment for me.

You know how comics kill off superheroes and bring them back to life to bring in additional revenues every few months? Well, Kirkman does that by coming up with "what horrible shiat can I come up with for these characters for no good reason?" Issue #100 was a perfect example of that.


I keep nitpicking but they were Allen and Donna's kids. I get the feeling all this Tyreese-rumour stirring is just a massive trolling when they throw in mopey Allen, prudish Donna and two children with no relevance until the cast needed thinning again.

The Banana Thug: KellyX: Frankly I don't really look at it as a true herd, they don't even really see a true herd until they hook up with Abrahams if I recall.

You are correct. I think it was Abraham who was explaining to the group what a REAL zombie horde looks like, and how it is formed. The smaller hordes at the beginning of season 2 on the highway and the one that overran the farm are nothing in comparison to a real horde, which I hope is what season 4 will be about.


Yeah, that's "the herd" I'm talking about. Which I think is what they're foreshadowing and alluding to, between the season 2 finale showing how herds originate, all the talk about being surrounded and boxed in by herds, and now this 'red zone' talk. What that says to me, between the lines, is that "the herd" is building up, and when the shiat finally hits the fan between Woodbury and the survivors, it's going to cause Woodbury and the prison both to end up overrun.

Also, what does everyone figure the over/under is on Milton being the TV show's "Eugene"?

You guys are right about the twins. That's my bad. But you know, in the show, Beth will die, pushing Carl closer to what he's like in the comics, and maybe Allen and the twins show up in Season 4, and we have scenario, leading to Carl becoming the problem solver.

A season 4 Alexandria will be interesting.

I'm liking that notion, but it would make for trouble motivating the groups movements/introducing Abraham in a similar fashion. Not to mention Eugene definitely had balls, Milton seems lacking.

**SPOILER**

Highly doubt it! Eugene showed up with Abraham together. There was actually a doctor from the comic's Woodbury that is similar to Milton. There's no way that Milton could pull double duty, character-wise. If season 4 is about getting to Alexandria, you have to remember that *someone* had to talk the group into going there, and that was Abraham and Eugene. Using Milton would preclude that.

kumanoki: Soulcatcher: kumanoki: Funbags: I finally got around to watching some the "expanded" content and interviews of the cast.

Its hilariously jarring hearing "Rick" talk with a British accent.

It's even more hilariously jarring to watch him douche it up as a complete mangina in Love, Actually.

Hey! I love that movie, and he is one of the reasons why.

Some women like sensitive guys.

Oh, come ON. He even had the weepy, tortured eyes and everything.

/OK, he was sad puppydog cute
//Keira Knightly needs to eat something
///Anything


I'm a big fan of Richard Curtis (since the Blackadder days), and what a damned fine cast he has in that film- Rickman, Neeson, Nighy, Firth, Grant, Emma Thompson, Bilbo =] . It was actually the first time I had seen Andy Lincoln in anything, and I just fell in love with him. Regardless of how his character resounded with you in Love, Actually- you have to admit Lincoln has a very impressive range. He can be a complete ruthless badass in TWD, but in Love, Actually very believably plays this shy lovesick man that can't bring himself to tell the woman he loves how he feels about her until it's WAY too late.

Can we settle for a happy medium between Andrew Lincoln's character in Love, Actually and Rawhead Rex from the other thread?


Whenever I hear Rawhead Rex I automatically think of the Clive Barker story, which is horrifying, even though RR on Fark seems like a nice enough guy.

Here's my prediction: they shake things up a bit and Glenn is the one who gets raped, not Maggie.


PsyLord: So where is the scrawny white prisoner? He appears kinda harmless, but I suspect that he's really dangerous. The way he gut stabbed the zombie during the 2nd episode gave me that impression.


That's Axel. He was working on fixing the generator, iirc.

I'm really hoping we actually get Abraham in the show. He was a great addition to the group in the comic. It's bad enough that we never really got a Tyrese character thus far.

Now that Carl is in proper asskicking mode, my only real character gripe is Andrea. Not only is she not the badass sniper she should be, her scenes with the Governor are really dragging down the episodes.

NeoCortex42: Big Beef Burrito: The Banana Thug: My thoughts:

1) I'm disturbed by how seamlessly they replaced T-Dog with that black prisoner. He's even doing that loitering-in-background-saying-nothing thing too. It's taking that "token black guy" to a level of ridiculousness.

What? Oscar is a totally different character. This black guy is bald. He digs holes. He opens and closes gates. He stands in the back of the group. He has few lines.

Aw, Hell....he's O-Dog now.

Well, when you put it like that: He's a ditch-digger and doorman who rides the back of the bus. I guess post-apocalypse Georgia isn't exactly progressive, is it.

Totally agree. T-Dog was supposed to be Tyrese, or at least I thought so, but the writers never fleshed out his character - I think he was written in as a placeholder in the pilot for later character development that never happened. Tyrese was supposed to be this big hulking former NFL player who was Rick's equal, so that's a shame.

Abraham was sort of Tyrese's replacement in the comic, the brawn to Rick's brain, and they really came to respect each other after some initial ugly confrontations.

Andrea has been a major disappointment this season. She's just chewing up way too much scenery, but gotta trust the writers on this since they've done a good job with season 3 so far.

Well, I think Milton can either man up a bit, or show he had balls the entire time but was being stepped on by the Governor and Merle. His character has room for growth, if he's going to stay in the series longer than the Woodbury arc. How Abraham and Rosita, and the fourth guy, fit in I'm not exactly sure unless they're found along the way or are Woodbury survivors who'd heard about the Alexandria safe zone but got sucked into Woodbury along the way.

Funbags: Walkers obviously have some degree of brain function, and since living things do not smell like themselves, its not unreasonable that they have learned to use their sense of smell to help distinguish targets.


It's pretty unreasonable. So many issues there with decaying flesh that would inhibit the olfactory sense. You really have to put absurd factor of rotting corpses that have the ability to walk and react out of mind during any zombie film to suspend disbelief.

Why is that unreasonable? The little girl zombie in season 1 picked up her teddy bear. Morgan's wife clearly remembered something about that house, and kept trying to get in to her family. If zombies can have rudimentary memories (memories of memories, really), why can't they have a functioning olfactory sense? Besides, i think the show has pretty clearly demonstrated that this is the case, between Rick and Glen's zombie walk of camouflage and last week's similar even with Michonne.

As someone raised in a city, during every trip to a relative's farm, or to a state fair's animal barn, I can't help but wonder how anyone can put up with living around the stench of manure all day. As it turns out, when exposed to it for long enough, you don't even notice it. I used to smoke cigarettes, and the smell never bothered me. Having quit many years ago I can instantly tell if the driver of a passing car is a smoker.

Noticing something that smells entirely different from the norm is not only reasonable, its to be expected. The question is: does it smell like death and rotting everywhere, and that's why the group is so easily surprised when a walker sneaks up on them?

I smell dead people
 
2012-11-19 08:29:10 PM  

BizarreMan: Funbags: Humans may not have a great olfactory sense, but we can smell very strong odors, such as rotting, decaying flesh and viscera.

And yet Walkers have been able to sneak up on living humans on multiple occasions. Seems to me that by now, the aura of stench around them would be quite profound and far reaching

There was a guy who used to work at my current company who bathed in cologne. You could be sitting 40 feet from the entrance to the break room and as soon as he walked in the door, everybody knew he was there.

Now imagine that instead of whatever cologne he used, it was rotting / decaying flesh. No walkers are gonna sneak up on me unless it's the middle of allergy season.


You've never lived near a farm, have you?

When you visit a farm with cows, for example, you will be offended by the smell of cow shiat. It's ever-present. It's impossible to ignore it when you've just been introduced to it. It's nasty.

After being IN it for a while, though, you may notice that doesn't bug you anymore.

After a while, you don't even notice it. When someone mentions the awful smell to you, you shrug and say, "I guess I got used to it a long time ago."

The same thing applies to corpse smell. Suddenly being exposed to it? It's awful. Living with it day in and day out? You get used to it. It's a background smell and you can't discern the smell of one rotting corpse from another. You certainly can't tell when one's close, because the whole world smells like this now. BILLIONS OF PEOPLE ARE ROTTING. There's no place you could go in the populated parts of the world that wouldn't smell of death.

So no, you're not going to smell Mr. Zombie as he walks up behind you. He's blending in with the smells you've been breathing in for the past year, and you don't even notice it anymore.

Summoner101: For some reason, when I watched the episode last night I took the "red zone" as a football metaphor for Merle's chase of Michonne. Since he grazed her with the gun shot, I thought he was trying to encourage the new guy to keep hunting because they almost had Michonne down.


Merle shot that boy because the boy wanted to continue to chase after Michonne. Merle mentioned the Red Zone in order to say Michonne was as good as dead. Merle didn't want to risk his life after what happened to Short Round and the other dude. Merle is bluster (because he had so much shiat to say to the kid when the kid was vomiting before). But Merle also had a point about how dangerous it would be to chase after Michonne. Merle just shouldn't have insisted on lying to the Governor about it.

Would have been a nice sports metaphor, though, all the same.

That was the point I was trying to make, too. I think it WOULD smell like decaying flesh just about everywhere. At least for a while. If only 10% of the population survived, you're still talking about billions of people rotting, not buried, many of them mobile.

Yes, it smells like death everywhere, and it will for a long time.

Also, it's not that walkers track by smell... I think they track by sound more than anything else, but if the source of the sound smells like them, they ignore it. If it doesn't, and it turns out to be alive, they bite it.

The main problem with zombie stories is that there's absolutely no logical reason why a walking corpse would make eating its priority, or why biting the living would be an instinct they couldn't resist.

But then, as I keep saying, zombies now are what vampires were in old folklore (rotting undead people who rise from the grave craving blood and flesh), and vampires now are actually updates of the succubus/incubus. Zombies used to be mindless slaves (Voodoo zombies) that weren't actually dead, but near-dead and brainwashed. Between Stoker, Romero, and Rice, the lore got all twisted around.

Atlanta has nearly 500,000 people living within it.

There are a lot of zombie lemmings in a post-ZA world.

pivazena: Can somebody explain the idea of the zombie herds?


It's explained well in the comic. They're completely decentralized groups with no leaders obviously. One zombie detects stimuli and pursues it, neighboring zombies notice that zombie moving and they react in a similar manner, the effect snowballs until huge herds exist that stretch out for days the way the plains buffalo once did. The original stimuli no longer matters, the movement of the herd itself is what draws in more followers.

pivazena: Can somebody explain the idea of the zombie herds?


One zombie attracts another zombie, they walk, they attract another, they walk together, eventually you got large groups of them, then a gun shot goes off, they all start heading to that sound, meet up, form a bigger group, keep walking towards the sound, meet more zombies, they keep following each other as they shift and move towards loud sounds, until you got 10's of thousands of them...

Except Milton has the Governor believing in his 'experiments' that require huge amounts of power, probably parallels SPOILERS Eugene's BSing to everybody about being a government scientist on a crucial mission.

I'd love to see a character arc of someone that sought/fought to set up a broadcast system in a city. I know, the power grid would have to be written in as to why it functioned, or use batteries, or have it be a large conglomerate of humans. But to see someone set up a semi-permanent sound source, to attract walkers for many miles would be cool. And then they fly away from the epicenter using a hang-glider...Anyways, a boy can dream [at least it ain't a rape fantasy]

One zombie attracts another zombie, they walk, they attract another, they walk together, eventually you got large groups of them, then a gun shot goes off, they all start heading to that sound, meet up, form a bigger group, keep walking towards the sound, meet more zombies, they keep following each other as they shift and move towards loud sounds, until you got 10's of thousands of them...

I'd love to see a character arc of someone that sought/fought to set up a broadcast system in a city. I know, the power grid would have to be written in as to why it functioned, or use batteries, or have it be a large conglomerate of humans. But to see someone set up a semi-permanent sound source, to attract walkers for many miles would be cool. And then they fly away from the epicenter using a hang-glider...Anyways, a boy can dream [at least it ain't a rape fantasy]


The great thing about TWD is that it's a sandbox universe that could be shared by other groups of survivors for different spin-offs and mediums. They're already doing this with the Walking Dead video game and "The Rise of the Governor" book. I'd definitely love to see that idea, like a TV movie or something.

that bosnian sniper: Shazam999: Current guy is U-Dog. Next black person will be V-Dog and so on.

I'm just waiting for New T-Dog to be quietly and unceremoniously written out and replaced by Ann Veal, just to see how many episodes it takes for viewers to notice.


What? Is she funny or something?

NeoCortex42: The Banana Thug: NeoCortex42: I hope they don't go the comic route with Negan. Issue #100 was basically "It's out hundredth issue, let's due something SHOCKING."

Agreed. #100 and #104 both border on absurd. By that point, I would be okay if the show takes a total departure from the comic, right around when the group reaches Arlington. **SPOILER** A lot of the stuff gets very repetitive after that point - "Oh look here's a safe place, let's stay here and reinforce it! Oh noes, we're overrun! Evacuate, repeat again." The show should target for about 6 seasons, with a tie-up-all-loose-ends conclusion about why we're all infected and how.

I don't think the TV show needs to end with tying up loose ends. My ideal way for the show to end is one of two ways:
1) Over the course of the next few seasons, Rick's group goes through the cycle of finding a possible safe haven only to have it overrun two times after the prison. The finale has everybody currently in the group, except Rick and Carl, killed off. The show then shows Rick and Carl walking down a desolate road together into the sunset, only to repeat the cycle all over again. Fade to black.

2) Carl dies in one of the last few episodes, followed by Rick in the finale. The show ends with Rick coming back as a walker and wondering around.

The show should end emphasizing the point that there are not always answers and the only sure thing is that you're never really safe in the zombie apocalypse.


The show should end with Rick and Carl sitting in a restaurant. They're road-weary and have stopped to eat from their dwindling supplies. Rick is flipping through the table-top juke box. Don't Stop Believin' plays in the background. The bell on the door jingles. Fade to black.

There's a pretty good series of zombie apocalypse books where the struggling remains of the government decides to place huge noise makers in some of the abandoned cities, give the herds time to congregate, then nukes those cities.
