One thing I find strange or, laughable, is everytime a zombie goes through a window, they break the glass out first. Of course its a natural reaction to the living not to get cut but, I doubt a zed could/would distinguish the broken glass as being harmful.
And as far as last night goes-
Shane and Otis deffinately should have planned an escape strategy before going in the trailer. That alleyway they ran through, coupled with 5 or 10 gallons of gas on the ground and 1 more flare would have made for a nice toasty getaway. A 3rd person waiting in the truck would have been helpful too. But, I'm just a dumb human sitting on the sidelines lol.
AGREE AGREE AGREE>...
They had me shouting at my TV WTF ARE YOU DOING!!!???? LMAO my husband must think i'm insane hahaha... The whole thing was just stupid...
I did't like the flares thing especially... A take i guess on Land of the Dead, which i didn't rate... I just don't see why Zeds would have any interest in the flares.... They had their pick up truck.. they could have honked the horn a couple times a little way way away - that was more likely to gain the zeds attention and draw them away from the Med Van.
Was also suprised to see it sooo full... you'd think it' have been ransacked in the first couple days/weeks?
They could even have left otis in the van while shane could have gone over and hit the sirens on the cop cars i dunno, FFS even just shouting HEY FLESH BAGS OVER HERE! from a distance would have been a better idea than whart they actually done.. In fact i can't beleive there were even "spare" flares in the trunk of that cop car ... something else that would have been stolen already...
You only gotta look at Otis to know the fat fook is just a mobile mcdonals for the zeds... i feel sorry for him but still shane should have known better... FFS back to the flare thing (that really wound me up) they'd have been better off finding a way to set fire to a tree or even a vehicle ... they wouldn't have had to wait til dark like they did IDIOTS!
T-dog whole other issue?? I just think his whole story is shit at the moment. if they wanna kill him off then he should have just bled to death... but 48 hours since having an artery sliced and he's sick from infection? Who are they writing this shit for?
ANdrea screaming... I KNOW I KNOW, she's meant to be a core character and all that but shes soooooo annoying right now.. i realise zeds are scary and no one wants to die but has she really not figured out that screaming isn't a good idea.... i mean scream once, attract your friend or help... but keep screaming and you're gonna attract more, although in this case the writers decided there weren't ANY OTHER ZEDS within ear shot of her eyeball bleedingly loud screaming lol.
Then the discussion about staying put some more incase the child comes back?? WTF? No doubt she will cos it will be as is written lol but it's still a shit idea.. what is his now day three of staying put... and now depsite having walked A LOT of those wood and not seeing a single thing relative to the sophia, she's just gonna randomly pop back, like no worries,
" hi everybody, yeah i had no weapons, yeah i'm only 4ft tall and have no survival skills but yes i managed to stay alive in the woods all alone even though you've all come across several walkers since i ran into the woods, NO none of them found me. And i managed to find my way back all te way here ALONE!"
Yes i'm hormonal! can you tell : ) LMAO..
Despite some really bad ideas and shit writing i still love it lol.. it's like having a naughty child who grows up to be a douchebag, you know he's a douchebag but you love him anyway... : )
Andrea was a badass in the comic...in the show she is some kind of crybaby...
I'm glad its on TV. I can't wait until the next episode. Yes, I can tell you're hormonal. I've been married 23 years, sure as hell can tell. The flares attract them. The bright light and the noise brings them in. I see no problem with that. Movement and sound means food to zeds. They should have shown a zed chomp on the burning end. Now that woulda been cool special effects. The cop car batteries are dead. Shane opened the door and the sniper light didn't come on. the trunk latch is mechanical not electric. Like him or not, Otis is still around for some reason or another. Of course he will be fodder but do you know when? Like I've said before, Shane shouldn't even be here. T-Dog gonna die. And then he's gonna die again. Andrea needs to harden up. Will she or won't she?
Dale can't be trusted, Lori's a ho and Shane is still a douchebag.
I would personally still look for Sophia. I wouldn't ask or make anyone else do it. I would relocate to Herschel's farm and leave a big sign for Sophia. I don't call her the kid until she is actually known to be dead. Sophia is a person. When people try to justify moving on from something that they know won't be popular they like leaving Sophia behind they will disassociate by calling them the lost child or the kid or the big dude or the small chick or "I didn't have sexual relations with that woman." This again is another subplot I don't recall being in the comic. I'm thinking Sophia got grabbed by another group. If you think Carl getting shot is bad wait until they deal with the other horrible things that happen in a disaster.
Maybe the horde has another target. We can't hear the noise but maybe like dogs tghe zeds hear on different frequencies and are moving in one direction for a reason. They are moving in the direction the survivors were going. Toward Ft. Benning. Maybe a battle still rages at Benning. Hmmm.. Time will tell.
We can pick the show apart as much as we like. I belong to other forums where people are yawning about it. I tell them to go play Xbox. This is about the drama and relations between survivors as much as it is about the Zpoc.
I don't get Dale, I was like, What's his deal? Lori, is a ho. Andrea needs to grow some nuts or stay in the winabago.
Yay for drama. (I want more zombie killing.)
Right before they went for the trailer I paused it and turned to my wife then stated:
"Take the truck out across teh lawn and start beeping, draw them all off and when they get close, move the truck another 500 yards and do the same thing. While Shane is doing that, tubby can get in there and find what he needs almost at his leisure..." then I hit play...no go. Instead they use flares...idiots...flares go out, you need to keep their attention...in my opinion, poor planning, worse tactics...I don't care much for Shane anyway...he can go anytime...
Prime, i disagree on the flares thing,.. We've already seen that the zeds won't go for a moving human if they can't smell them, or they smell like them... I realise they can't think like us but they are working on instinct so i wouldn't think for a moment they would think a flare was food... Even as a distraction, it's a crap idea. Just as it was with sky flowers or whatever crap name Romero gave them in land of the dead... HOWEVER i do agreee it would have been awesome to see one chew the burning end lol...
"We can pick the show apart as much as we like. I belong to other forums where people are yawning about it. I tell them to go play Xbox. This is about the drama and relations between survivors as much as it is about the Zpoc."
You're right but thats the whole point lol... And the point of watching drama is? Isn't this life, imitating art, imitating life? their Zpoc world needs to be picked apart, discussed, figured out.. apart from the fact that it's all part of the fun it's also important to decipher the realistic "thats how it would happen in our world" from the "writer is a douchebag" bits lol...
i disagree i'm afraid... i mean, i'm sure they'd look around at the flare as they would look toward any sudden light and noise but i don't believe it would draw them toward it... not at all it would take a scientific explanation of preposterous depth to make me change my mind about the flares thing being a dumbass idea... call me stubborn i just don't buy it...
I think they would follow the movement and the noise and try to eat it. It is what they do. They follow noise and movement. The flame is movement and the fzzzzzzzzzzz is the noise. Zeds eat anything. There is no doubt in my mind that they would follow their basest instinct and go for the flares. They've had no stimulus since the last human or critter meal. They will jump at anything that gives them that stimulus because that stimulus means food. Like Pavlovs dog. Ring the bell and throw them a snack. And we already know they eat more then just human flesh. There was a critter in the hippy zed in the woods. It would be funny to just sit and watch them one after another try to chomp a flare. Each time a different zed head pops and another picks up the flare to try to eat it.
