All the same, I'll get to work on my bodyarmor and collection of knives, stakes, swords. hammers and slingblades just in case ;)

Some folks call it a sling blade, I call it a kaiser blade, mm hmm.

He should know - he studied on it. Studied on it quite a bit.

Couldn't sleep last night so watched the Mist and it had the actors that played Andrea, Carol and Dale in it.  The movie kinda sucked except for the ending, but ya...good trivia question?  ya no.

Funny.  I watched that few weeks back and I thought the whole movie was good except for the ending!  I definitely wouldn't have gone out that way.  It was cool to see some of the same WD characters though.

Of course the ending was a terrible situation, but I never saw that coming so that is why I liked it.  It was just a movie....but ya I agree it was nice to see some of the gang together outside of the dead.   ;)

I really enjoyed The Mist, and the ending might have been my favorite part... definitely an "oh ****" kind of moment. And here's an additional bit of info: Sam Witwer, who was in The Mist and did voice work for various Star Wars projects, played the "tank zombie" in the first episode of TWD.

Ugh, the ending of The Mist was appalling and repulsive in my opinion. I guarantee you whatever sorry jagoff wrote that did not have kids. It just came off as cheap and contrived to me. NOTHING like the way WD handled the Sophia storyline.

I did enjoy the shooting of that whackjob woman that kept making trouble though.

Speaking of timelines....what really bothered me last night was the neighborhood that they went to.

Corpses had been in the garage long enough to rot down to skeletons, but the grass was all mowed and trimmed.

Do zombies landscape?

Friends visiting family in Senoia, GA posted pictures of signs that are up all over town that read "Stalwart Films, LLC thanks the City of Senoia for NOT mowing their grass."

The Mist's screenplay was adapted from Stephen King's novel by Frank Darabont, former executive producer of The Walking Dead.

oh the mist was on syfy last weekend and I caught different parts of it several times, enough to see all the WD cast members.

If you're looking for something to do while waiting for the WD, check out the comics.  They are fast approaching issue 100 and getting back to some bigtime action in the storyline after a pretty long hiatus. 

I'm also reading World War Z.  It's written somewhat documentary style while a bunch of different interviews telling the big picture story.  Took me a while to get used to the format, but they can cover a lot more ground that way.  All kinds of pretty interesting info on how "Zack" (Code word for the undead) was able to take over most of the world and how it spread so fast.  In this version you do have to get infected like a virus - those who die in other ways don't come back. 

The book shows why the military was mostly ineffective, what happened in many different countries, how people survived, and the changed world post apocalypse.  A lot of the stuff we have talked about in this thread is in there, like going back to castles/walls, using makeshift swords/sheilds, using the colder weather to freeze Zack.  Its also an interesting perspective on how the living react - how they can be just as dangerous or more than the undead. They cover all the misinformation that gets people killed and something called a Quisling - people who snap and start acting like Zombies, further driving misinformation for the survivors.  Good stuff.

My only complaint is that there really isn't a main character to follow yet outside of the interviewer - just a lot of seperate stories from survivors, some more interesting than others.

Looks like its about time to buy another pistol and Ar15.
