I probably exaggerated when talking about this season being a letdown. It's good...damn good. I was only talking about it being kind of a let down because it got some serious hype.

No, I agree with you (or disagree with the others). I thought this season has been pretty boring overall. I thought Season 2 was the best season, and people here seem to have hated that season.

How exactly did these zombies cause an apocalypse?

You can just hang out on a farm for months, and they just leave you alone. They're pretty much just a "minor inconvenience" to the characters of the show at this point. The gov's people pretty much just use them as toys in their games.

These things ended all civilization internationally?

I can imagine the initial chaos that something like this causes is pretty deadly. Refer back to the flashback of Shane and Lori outside Atlanta when the government ordered the army to napalm the entire city. Now imagine that on a global scale.

What we're seeing now is how the characters have adapted to their surroundings, perhaps a survival of the fittest type situation. And mostly, I'd suppose this is more a show about human interaction in the zombie apocalypse, vs. actual zombie show.

It's been over a year in show time, I think? They're a minor inconvenience because the prison and Woodbury are pretty well secluded from larger cities and towns, much like the farm was secluded. Plus, the chaos and initial shock from everything has long since passed.

You make a fair point though. I love that we're all still having serious discussions over a completely fictitious show

Another thing you have to take into consideration is that one of the producers had said that this takes place in a world where there had been no zombie sub-culture before hand. notice how they have never once called the living dead a zombie/

Now if it had happened in our reality Im sure there would still be some initial chaos from the shock but most people i think would clue in.

Has anyone over the internets made a timeline from the show? From the start of the zombies up to their current time with main events highlighted?

I've seen some of these dates/times disputed, but this is what I normally use:

In post apocalyptic material, it's the realistic desperation of the world that makes the genre work. I realize its just a fun cheesy television show and that's it's sort of silly to have serious conversations about it... but I just don't think they're doing the show very well.

How did these zombies even get out of control in the cities in the first place? If you just close your door, they can't get in. They don't really even try. The only way a zombie can get you in this show is if you went outside, made a lot of noise, and just stood there waiting for the zombie to bite you.

I'm not a zombie fiction connoisseur or anything, but I have read World War Z. The zombies in that novel make a noise when they see a human. That noise draws other zombies. Next thing you know, there's thousands of them banging on your door. Now that's a legitimate threat.
But slow walking zombies that seem borderline indifferent to humans? It's just not an entertaining angle for the genre.

I'm still watching... but interest fading.

I was under the impression that the miltary intervention made the outbreak worse. When they were napalming the streets they just created more and more zombies, to the point were they were overwhelming.

The only one I ever found was one for the comics, so view at your own risk, since it will have spoilers, and will likely not be exact with the TV show.

Dont forget that anyone who dies becomes a zombie, a bite just kills you. I can imagine people killing other people over anything during the outbreak

Also IIRC, the military was executing civilians in the hospital where Rick was, so I can imagine they were doing that all around the globe, which would sure as hell hasten the apocalypse.

Did you forget what happened in the camp outside Atlanta? Or at the farm? The prison is only secure because zombies can't get past metal bars. The Zeds are a real threat, and only appear to be harmless because everyone who has survived at this point understands how to deal with them on a regular basis. Even then they have had casulties due to zeds.

Anyone who dies becomes a zombie (except if the brain is destroyed). So many people die every day and no one can stop the reanimation (atleast not for now). And just like someone already mentioned, in this show no one knows what zombies are prior to the zombiepocalypse. For example, think about a hospital staff, a car crash victim is brought in and he dies due to blood loss. Nurses prepare to move the dead person away when suddenly he starts to move. Everyone is shocked and they get closer to perform tests and whatever when all of the sudden the victim attacks the staff, maybe even bitting someone in the process. Everyone thinks that the man has gone crazy or he's suffering from a shock or something, they try to calm him with medicine which won't work and they have to put him into a limb restraint to prevent him attacking anyone.

Hospital staff is appalled and they don't know what is going on or they give some diagnosis which is of course wrong. In the meantime the bit victims get some treatment and are probably sent home where their situation gets worse. They die in their homes (if they even get there), reanimate and become walkers. They attack their families, roomates or random people walking down the street, and no one still has any idea what these things are and what they should do with them (walkers are still considered people at this point because no one knows that they really aren't humans anymore). Then a day goes by, more people die due to various reasons, reanimate and attack humans while the previously infected are about to die or die and become zombies etc. At this point it's very easy for the virus to spread when there are billions of oblivious people. Killing a zombie at this point could be considered a murder and when you think that your loveone is just sick, you are not going to kill him/her.

That's just one way I see the situation going bad. The lack of knowledge and amount of dead people would be the main reasons for zombification to spread quickly. Then add panic and you got yourself a mess.

Yeah, it could get out of hand pretty easily. No one would know what was going on. They'd try to help and get bit etc.

Hopefully this episode delves more into the Rick/Michonne dynamic, as evidenced by the previews.
