Actually, I was just going for the Indy Jones joke.   ;)

Yeah - "let's abandon our neighbors and massacre the military."  Fine up-standing group right there!  Totally the type of people to root for!

I never said the barber was sympathetic.  I just think he's a legit badass.

Overall, I think the season was lame as hell.  In the end the only "loss" was the ex-wife.  Just paltry.  There were a couple bright spots, but I really don't like the cast at all.

I was really hoping the distraught barber was gonna pick up the gun and take out the dad for being an idiot.  That would have been a shocking and interesting ending.

I like the barber.  Dude's legit.

Not sure what to make of the hustler.  Kinda strange to introduce an important character in the next-to-last episode.

I too hope they don't revisit this group in season 2.  But with one episode left, I think there are too many loose ends to tie up for that to be their plan.  Unless they all just die.  We can always hope.

So the rovers are digging in the wrong place!

Yeah - this is just not a good show.  "The military is evil and murders people" - how original.  Stressed-out mom becomes dead-zone explorer?  Because she bonded with her future step-son, inexplicably? 

And uncharasmatic dad makes such an awesome impression on people that some dude he had one beer with once considers him a good friend and inspiration?  And they call the dad mayor?  This is the same dad whose next-door-neighbor gave him the stink-eye last episode?

Maybe they're writing all the characters without any real core to demonstrate the chaos of the situation.  But I won't give them that much credit.

You'd think when the national guard walked up, you'd tell them "oh yeah, this woman with us has necrosis from a crushed foot and is gonna die soon - little help?"

I expect that plane to crash, instead it leered off course.

I'll bet good money that the plane is the one featured in the "Zombies on a Plane" single-episode they announced.  It's supposed to take place just as the zombie plague breaks out.

He was gonna steal his dead Asian neighbor's pills.  I'm pretty sure when his sister saw that empty bottle that it was him who scarfed them down.

Funny how quickly the dad went from awesome dad to douche dad.  "You know how I feel about guns."  Yeah, that's gonna get you far in the zombie apocalypse.

Preacher picked up to series by AMC.

And people thought Walking Dead was extreme...

I guess I just have more faith in Americans.  Like it'd take a whole lot of convincing for a good portion of this country to start bashing in the skulls of anybody who looked funny.   8)

You wouldn't see exponential growth, though.  You wouldn't even see linear growth.  Not if the populace has already seen how to kill the things over YouTube, and communication systems are still largely intact.

I'm not arguing there'd be no instances of outbreaks.  Sure - someone young and healthy has a stroke in the middle of a neighborhood - some families gets wiped out.  But those kinds of stresses don't lead to societal breakdown.

Looking at my math a different way - each day right now 1 out of every 45,000 people die.  Are you saying those 44,999 other people can't handle it if that death becomes somehow contagious?  And not airborne contagious - contagious via staggering, brainless corpses?

7000 per day of 320 million?  You'd only need 1 out of every 45,000 people to be a competent zombie killer.

I just don't see how we're going to get to pandemic chaos from where they are now (short of bad writing).  We've seen the hospitals know something's going on.  That means the CDC will be involved and investigating.  Even if they don't "understand" what's happening, they'll be able to surmise pretty quickly we have venomous zombies.  In real life, controls would lock in place.  The president or the surgeon general would be on TV within a day or two saying "You know all those zombie movies?  Looks like that's what's going on.  Decapitate your dead."  And things would never get out-of-hand.  About 7,000 people die each day in the USA.  That'd be easy enough to contain.

As it stands now, there are still too many societal structures in place for it to go all apocalyptic.  There's still working communication systems...

Maybe the zombies will drop an EMP on LA.
