In terms of the other survivor groups that are out there:  I was just thinking about that the other day and wondering when they were going to start coming across other groups.  I was thinking about The Stand and about all the ******** that would be out and about in the world running their own little groups........

Another group (or more) of survivors should be encountered at some point if it follows the comics (don't think that really spoils anything).

As for the series itself, I'm totally engulfed in it.  It's even more thrilling for me than 24 ever was... I love the character driven aspects of this show - even the slow parts are outstanding to me.  Who would have thought that a zombie show could be so damn appealing, even to people who don't like zombie stuff?  I know many ladies and also older folks who are drawn into this series too.

My mother is hooked on this show so we have discussions...  We were discussing groups in particular that survive, and I was giving her examples of "********" in other similar stories...

Bikers in Dawn of the Dead.

Soldiers in 28 Days Later...  That type of stuff.

People well armed, "strong" in numbers, who are mobile, and when societal breakdowns occur, they become free-thinking/independant, and have nobody to answer to any longer, so they become the ******** of the world...  Gangs would be included in that ultimately, even though the Vatos would be doing a good thing.  They still clearly were willing to harm/hurt people they didn't know to keep doing what they wanted.

Much like Shane, they'd have a duality to them...  Shane, as bad as he is, was still doing what he felt was right...  He didn't know Otis, and Otis caused Rick's son's injuries, so he figured "F it" and used him to advance himself and who he cares about...  Much like his little fit at the barn harmed Hershel, but why would Shane care ya know?  Till of course teh zombie that comes out is someone you know, and you care about...

I'm hopeful Webisodes maybe cover some of the more detailed things the Deadophiles want to know like how it started and stuff...  I liked the webisode about the half-lady in the park, and I'd love one that focused on Sophia's bite/explanation, and one about the breakdown of society and how it all began and escalated on a national and global scale...

It makes one wonder too, are there isolated places where this isn't affecting anyone?  Like could Hawaii be spared because they lock it down or something when they see it out of control or something?  Be cool if there were these island havens.

I just love this show...  I can't bring myself to read the comics because the show keeps me so tense, I would hate "knowing" the possible future of it at this point.

And don't tease me about these horrible groups of survivors.  I really have already imagined a lot, and that just makes me even more giddy for future episodes! :)  I love this show.

I will research this for you in the coming weeks.   ;)

So Hawaii isn't a safe haven, but if you're a zombie, there's at least some hotties for you?  Interesting.

That's the type of thing that I wish the show would get to at some point.  It doesn't seem like anyone cares about that.

They have been pretty upfront that the primary focus of the show would be surviving.  More realistic to think that a small group would be more concerned with just staying alive rather than having two cops, a wife, and a couple others trying to solve what apparently the CDC couldn't.

I'm not looking for Rick and the crew to save the world, but unless I'm forgetting something, Rick just seemed to accept that when he woke up from being shot the world had gone to **** and dead people were walking around.

Me, I'd be asking why I'm shooting a crawling, half woman in the head in a park.  Rick, eh, business as usual in the new world.

Finally got to watch the first 4 episodes of season one this week. Highly enjoying it. Now to finish the first season and wait for season 2 to be on sale for $10 at Target some day.

Last week it was $10 at Target, but now it's back up to regular price $26.99. Sorry I should have posted that on JD.

Drat.  Oh well, not a big loss since I've already seen it.  I'm sure it will get down to that again at some point.   ;)

Half caught the Walking Dead marathon on New Years Eve.  Still haven't seen the first episode and 1/2 but getting closer.  This series holds up surprisingly well with multiple viewings.

Thats because the plot moves at a zombie's pace so you can see all the gory details.
