Carl?  Still not in the house.  Of course by then, if he follows his current personality progression, he's going to be some sort of unstoppable serial killer.

Well that means they will be driving 2023 model cars.

I don't get it, do the zombies not rot? Are they being preserved by whatever the agent is? It's my basic problem with zombie math models, once you have a corpse without flowing blood the ATP is going to run out in the muscles in a matter of minutes of activity.

That's your basic problem? Really? I figured it would be...ya know...zombies.

I give it 2-3 more seasons on it's own momentum but the zombie fad has already run it's course. I think WWZ will be the straw that broke the camels back. There's a lot of cool things to do with zombie stories but all Hollywood wants to give us is action sequences and all the indie guys want is new and creative kills. Folks are already getting bored with it.
Don't worry though- we'll all be fresh for the 2025 retro zombie fad.

Even when the show is completely flatlined and lifeless, it will just continue to plod on ever forward...

Just wait until Steven Yeun starts directing episodes and they enter their 'Alda Phase'.

The second season dragged so badly, I thought it lasted 10 years!

This boner could last for ten more years, too.

But I was told to see a doctor and get rid of it.

Given how fast the zombies on the show are dessicating, Rick and company will spend the last three seasons kicking around piles of bones.
 
2013-05-23 08:21:54 PM
I only started watching it in the past few months, speed-watching on Netflix and Amazon. It has done wonders financially for the county it is filmed in (the same county I live in). I want to be an extra before it peters out, as it eventually will.

The zombie infection is passed on by an RNA virus that invades a cell's mitochondria. Once infected the virus forces the mitochondria to produce thin carbon nanofibers that spread out from the cell creating a secondary neural network while simultaneously harvesting energy from the Earth's electromagnetic field to power the cell...... it's a show about zombies for God's sake! That's the part you're supposed to suspend your disbelief about!

Real zombies next time too. Zombies under control of Yaphet Kotto and voodoo and puffer fish toxins and all!
 
2013-05-23 08:44:22 PM
Well, that's no problem, if you got a gun shoot 'em in the head. That's the sure way to kill 'em. If you don't get yourself a club, beat 'em or burn 'em. They go up pretty easy.

It always really annoyed me that they used the word 'just' 3 times in two lines on that song.

They don't have enough showrunners for it to last 10 years at the rate they keep firing them.  By season 13 that slightly retarded kid who works at your local 7-11 will likely be running things.
 
2013-05-23 09:10:41 PM

It won't.

I thought they fired him after season 2.

It's so boring as it is now. There aren't any likable characters. Daryl keeps getting more and more emo looking. Stupid decisions keep getting made. I understand they're trying to deviate from the comic, but damn! At least Andrea is dead.
 
2013-05-23 09:16:36 PM
They should just set up a loudspeaker in the bottom of a canyon and let the zombies fall to their death. If they don't die from a head wound, at least they'll be trapped.

Or get a house boat and live at sea.

There's my ending.

That's a lot of dead black folks.
 
2013-05-23 09:18:19 PM
I think they are still doing the comic books.  The video game was kinda fun, but moved too slow for much of the replay value it promoted.
I'm pretty sure it was AMC's most watched show ever for Season 1.  You beat that cash cow until it's a dead horse.
 
2013-05-23 09:20:32 PM
Honestly, it could, and that's the main issue I have with the show.  It's basically the same problem as with all zombie-apocalypse settings:  There's absoutely no endgame.  Some apocalypses, the kind that are a single catastrophic event, things can get better.  They may never get back everything, but they can cobble together something solid.  There's no recovering from a zombie-based end of the world.  Even if they manage to cobble a bunch of survivors together into some form of Woodbury-style civilization, all it would take is a single attack to collapse it again.  There are only three possible endings to this:  (A) They die by either a crazed human or the zombies, (B) they go completely nuts, then die by either a crazed teammate or the zombies, or (C) They keep running until they die of old age.  When there's no chance of an actual resolution, or even of progress, where's the continuing draw for a viewer?
 
2013-05-23 09:22:39 PM
So ten more years of losers watching a show they hate just so they can biatch about it on the internet?
 
2013-05-23 09:32:13 PM

Why is it that zombies are the only monsters that people try to explain with science? You don't see anyone over-analyzing vampires or werewolves.

I can suspend my disbelief for the zombies. What I can't is for how nobody put a bullet in Andrea's head after spending five minutes with her.
 
2013-05-23 09:48:01 PM
And I could watch it for another ten years. It is just annoying to think that all the main characters will die every few years.

Because I think I could modify rabies to produce zombies, but they'd be 28 Days Later style, starving out in a few weeks. They'd keep all their metabolism running. Running down to empty.

If you want to step up to sci-fi we could produce the whole menagerie, explicable with superscience and a fondness for the classics.

The decision to plant soy over corn crop was the most intense episode of season 2.

My thoughts have always been that perhaps newborns that are conceived during the zombie apocalypse have an immunity to the disease. So it's on the survivors to survive and breed, allowing the new generation to have a chance.

If it's going to be on that long they should have alternating stories in different parts of the world. I'm already tired of this group. Except Daryl. And Maggie, for very different reasons. Mmm, Maggie.
