Exactly. What happened to our military? Wiped out? Ships? Subs? Finding some more weapons and ammo should now be a priority.

And why are they hanging around just outside of Atlanta near a heavily populated area of the south. They should be heading for the mountains or the coast.


Yeah, I have a hard time believing that our military would succumb to walkers, regardless of quantity. But then again, all we've seen so far is a fairly small area of the country.

I remember reading studies that point out that if a zombie outbreak did happen in the US if its not dealt with with in the first 3 or so days we would be over taken with in a 2 week span of time lol.

Do the Walking Dead comics ever explain how the virus gets started?

I stopped reading them after the prison redux arc (second portion of the prison arc), I didnt want to know who else from the main cast might die in the show due to the comic lol.
Up till that point the characters dont really know anything about the virus, The only people who have an idea that it might be airborne are Rick and Tyrese (Awesome character whos missing in the show :( )
edit:
Heres something kirkman said on the subject on the virus

..the rule is: WHATEVER it is that causes the zombies, is something everyone already has. If you stub your toe, get an infection and die ... you turn into a zombie. UNLESS your brain is damaged. If someone shoots you in the head and you die ...you're dead. A zombie bite kills you because of infection, or blood loss ... not because of the zombie "virus".

I think that was just to show us how that one here started. That might be the very same helicopter that Rick had seen in season 1.

- Merg

Glen Mazzara was asked:

"You said the helicopter in the finale is the same one Rick sees. Is it at the same time & just takes the herd that long?"


Glen Mazzara :

"Yes."

This might disappoint some viewers.

"@Be_Juicy Will we ever see how the apocalypse just started. While Rick was in the hospital?"
Glen Mazzara: "I have no plans to show that."

I just downloaded an Android game based in the series. It is more an interactive comic than a traditional game.

Pretty cool.

It is a prequel. You are Shane trying to get out of town and save people and such.

Can't get enough of the franchise. :lol:

I'm also started to watch the webisodes at AMC web site.

Haha same here. I'm now totally hooked and I haven't even read the comics (yet). They can do so much with this franchise. I don't know why they wasted so many damn episodes looking for Sophia or hanging around the farm. Season One was some of the best 6 episodes of anything EVER! I'm ready for some other stories like different cities, countries, characters, prequels, what happened to the military, etc...

It will never get old! :D

I just watched the webisodes. Those were pretty darn good. It's interesting watching a story when you truely already know the outcome.

It definitely slowed down the story ... but the effect of seeing Sophia walk out of the barn as a walker had much more impact because they had spent so much energy and hope on the search.

Tangentially, I just watched "28 days" and it was pretty good too. Also, "Doomsday preppers" in NATGEO. They have not used the zombie excuse yet for their preparations ... yet! :lol:

I could have sworn on this past episode of "Doomsday Bunkers" the narrator said something like some are prepping bunkers for a Zombie Apocalypse.

I also just watched 28 Days. Not bad. I heard 28 Weeks Later was even better. I saw the first 10 minutes and it was pretty intense.
