I'll keep watching it week after week, yet I am getting extremely frustrated at the idiotic decisions the survivors are constantly making.

like, why haven't they raided the gas stations for all of the instant lottery tickets? There's gotta be a few mega-jackpots left to be won and then they could buy all the supplies they need instead of risking lives scavenging.

makes me wonder how any of them survived 2 days, let alone 2 years in that world.

Well obviously because they have taken a vow of poverty. Why else would they leave a functioning town with an resemblance of humanity for a prison with damaged fences.

Ah thanks that makes a lot of sense now. I guess same thing for why they left a fortified place in aAtlanta to live in the woods

Woodbury was a pillow fort. It was too big to be defended by the Governor and his crew (70 or so people ?). Static defenses like a wall might keep walkers out but human raiders (eg Rick's crew) infiltrated at will and proved to be their undoing.

If you can't even fortify a f*cking prison you might as well just put some ranch dressing on a gun barrel. I only watch to cheer for the walkers now.

The Governator doesn't interest me at all, so far.  He could've just handled this problem with Rick's group totally diplomatically, and then killed them all in their sleep.

At least the town would have been a better setting for the current soap opera season of "All My Zombies".

Well, they obviously haven't taken a vow of complete poverty. Someone is going out mowing those lawns, and that's $10-15 a pop. Probably Glenn needs some pocket change for his comic books. And a 1/4 carat solitaire for Mags

I call it "Hotlanta." It makes the show more interesting to watch.

I also say "Zizombies," "Slickity Rickity," and "Former NFL Running Back Herschel NotaWalker."

I like making new names for things.

I watch the show alone.

Me, but I do have to periodically remind myself "it's just a show, I should really just relax" when I start thinking about details too much.

Hopefully the governor's return is brief. It was finally getting interesting again.

After the glimpse of him at the end of last week's episode, I'm already bored with him and his story can be done as far as I'm concerned.

And, no, I'm not hate watching. more like bored watching.

With the few people left in the camp, they could more easily fortify or secure a Costco (if they have those in Georgia). Any medium sized building has to have better walls and doors than the thousands of feet of chain link fencing the prison provides, and it's not like they're supporting even 1,000 people.

I often wonder if there was some kind of massive worldwide disaster, how many nuke plants would be going kerblooey without the dedicated technicians that keep the things running. How many dams went all kerfarkitty. How many massive fires started in cities.
 
2013-11-17 08:49:32 PM
So am I the only one not that excited by the Governor returning? What's he going to do? He doesn't have an army behind him anymore. He's by himself camping in the woods outside the prison...not exactly a major threat.

I guess he could pick people off one by one maybe. Or lead walkers to the prison...but that seems like a lot of personal risk for what? Crazy guy reasons I guess.

Just look what happened at Fukushima and remember that there are 99 plants here in the US.

I'm sure they were all shut down and made safe before the workers abandoned them.

Doesn't help all that much if the deadman is a zombie bent on destruction.

I would hope that nuke plants are designed to shutdown more or less automatically in abnormal conditions, without operator override.

Slow-moving zombies would realistically pose little threat to people.  You'd be in more danger from one rabid chimp than from a hundred slow-moving, unintelligent, disorganized humans with poor motor skills.  So you pretty much have to have the people do stupid shiat in order for them to be a threat.

I hope Michonne takes the Governor's eye, makes a chain and wears it around her neck.

Some friends of mine were brainstorming possible Fark handles and "Ranch Flavored Shotgun" was a favorite.

That was a favorite board question when I was in the US Navy nuc program : What happens to a steady state and steaming plant with no operator action ? Shortened answer : All the secondary water boils away--> No more steam to run the turbine generators--> Loss of all power--> 3 Mile Island repeat.
