I think he meant infected with this new virus that can kill you, not with the zombie virus.

Sorry if I misunderstood your post.

You didn't misunderstand, I just had a brain fart. Carry on! smile.gif

The only thing that says is they are morons. That's believable.

Morons is a little harsh.
The woodbury threat was eliminated-they won. Everything else just happened, we haven't seen how they are going to react yet. All we know right now is that you would make a lot better leader than Rick...smile.gif I've already decided I'm heading your way at the first sign of Walkers, so I want to stay on your good side.

So this means that even if the virus was to disappear today, the threat of zombies would still be relavent in 80-90 years. When the very last newborn baby gets the virus. Yikes.

Probably did but I was referring to the fact that the people with the flu were turning into zombies with their eyes essentially exploded and huge damage done by that virus. I was just musing that the flu virus probably did some extensive damage to the brain which may or should prevent those victims from becoming zombies. Then again we are talking about zombies that don't need blood or organs to keep moving and "living" so wtf was I thinking?

The only thing is these bodies are decaying at a rapid rate so 80-90 years is unlikely. I mean one of the more ridiculous things about the show is how easily they puncture skulls . They either stomp them with their foot or spear with a wood branch. A skull is extremely HARD . With that being said, one would have to think like in 28 days later these things would either starve or wither away into dust.

Well perhaps the zombies have a calcium deficiency. biggrin.gif

And wouldn't the brain also decay? I'm not sure what the zombie theory is why the brain is important other than the brain stem. However, Zombies seem to die whenever their head is attacked no matter what part of the head or brain is destroyed. Maybe I'm over thinking this.

I think we all are. Haha. But it's still fun to speculate.

After a couple more seasons, many of the cast and the executive producers and others who have partial ownership of the show will probably want to move on.

They will have made so much money and not be as motivated to continue with the grind of the same show.

I guess because of the ratings, there will be a big syndication market (though I wonder if airing at 7 PM will work for this kind of show, given the graphic violence) but presumably, the ad revenues and DVD/Blu-Ray sales have been robust.


So would AMC just replace the people who want to leave and continue on or let them wrap it up? If the latter, they need to have some kind of hints now about an endgame, something that BB kind of planted the seeds for well in advance of the finale.

TWD doesn't seem to be doing the same.

My guess is that at some point it is revealed that newly born children (post outbreak) are virus free, with Judith being the first we learn about.

The comic is still several seasons ahead of where the TV show is... and while the TV show is following a slightly different plot and has some unique characters not seen in the comic... suffice to say that right now there's still several seasons more plot already written... and the comic is still coming out every month... so unless the comic stops, there will continue to be ideas for more story.

It will be a matter of ratings + desire of the actors to continue doing the show that determines how long this can run... the only other thing that could derail it are production costs.

Unless this takes place in the '90s or earlier, they should be finding electronics devices. Far more likely than an old Polaroid camera.

How would a smartphone work unless there's a huge population of employees to maintain the network?

Virus free or immune.

You can still use a smartphone as a camera even without a connection to the network.

I think someone earlier said its dumb that they're looking for a radio signal rather than trying to connect with their cell phone. I'm sure the amount of infrastructure necessary to keep a cell phone network up and running is considerable. But a radio transmitter is quite simple. It seems much more likely to me.

Right but spinning that dial or clicking buttons to go up in increments is much harder than turning on a smart phone and seeing if there's a signal.

But most radios have one button to press to scan through the entire frequency range. If I was in a "zombie apocalypse" situation then every time I got in a car as the front seat passenger I'd go to AM and hit scan, then go to FM and do the same. It would take almost no time. There's at least about 50 of them now at the prison (in the first episode anyways). Having one person assigned to do some radio scanning seems like a good idea... and yes they'd turn on a cell phone too just in case.

I was in Seattle for work when Hurricane Wilma went through my hometown in S. Florida. Power was out in my neighborhood and the landlines were down as well. I was able to speak to my wife via cellphone the morning after, but that too was unavailable in the afternoon. It turns out that the cellphone towers were on generator backup power and after a while, the generators ran out of fuel. I doubt a cell network would be up and running 2 years after the outbreak.

With cell phones if you get a signal you still need someone to call. With a radio, you may have someone on CB or transistor that has shelter or food or looking for help and can barter with other goods. I'll take the old communication device over trying to randomly call a 911 service.

If the babies were immune or born virus free that would be a wild twist. That would also put a ton of pressure to pro create in an environment not conducive to raising a child.

What if they found out that babies were not only immune, but were the cure. Then you could just feed babies to the walkers.

Problem with that solution for the zombies is that it will only work with Irish babies.

Oh, I was watching the Walking Dead on Sunday night. Wait, no, that was the Broncos running game.

As someone who's known Irish people, and visited Ireland, I am offended! However, I had to stop chuckling before I could type...biggrin.gif

That was the funniest exchange I've read on a forum in quite a while.

We have not seen any baby walkers yet. I think we Judith needs to die in the name of science.
