How does everyone have the virus, but only turn when they get bit or scratched?

not sure if i should do a spoiler warning, but i guess if you haven't watched season 2 this will be a spoiler...








as seen earlier in the show, you turn no matter how you die. shane got stabbed by rick. moments later, he's back up as a zombie. but apparantly, zombie bites and scratches (or in dale's case, having your guts ripped out) cause infections that can be 100% fatal if given the chance to spread throughout the system.

After the last few episodes of the second season I'm not sure I can really care about the show anymore. Frankly the characters just got stupid for no good reason. "Zombies are everywhere, and we're in constant danger anywhere we go... Lets just chill out here on a farm, that is out in the open, and make zero effort to build useful defences or make escape plans for anything." Right... They knew about herds, they knew there were walkers in the woods, and yet no one could think maybe something bad might happen? I know I would have been putting effort into building a double high fence around the inner most part of the farm, double the posts, and put an angled brace on each one.

Reality does not make for good TV. Hence why "reality" TV is full of faked scenarios. The TV guide synopsis would be something like "Rick and Shayne build a fence. Carl somehow ends up outside the fence. Lori gets worried."

I would just be happy it's as good as it is. Though I have found it to be boring on a second watch through, once you already know whats coming. Something like Stargate Atlantis or Firefly I can watch multiple times, but not this.

yea, i hear ya. while not as "action packed" or "exciting", it just made a whole lot more sense with how they went about the farm situation in the comic...

There are lots of ways it could have been handled without everyone going "hurp'a'derp, lets sit with our thumbs up somewhere warm for weeks on end and do jack all. Its getting cold out there after all, got to watch out for frost bite."

They skip over tonnes of stuff in the series where all the boring things 'just happen'. We didn't have a real time depiction of the ladies cooking one of those big dinners, did we? If "Building a fence" is boring, then skip ahead to the interesting bits of the task.

Someone cutting wood gets themselves pinned by a falling tree, and surprise! His chopping of wood has attracted a few walkers.

Horde attack? That's not big deal, we have a fence that is more than enough to deal with them so we're safe. That small herd walking out of the woods won't do much, we'll just have to pick them off from our side of the fence.... oh [favourite choice words] why aren't they stopping? Where are they all coming from? They're starting to climb, and both gates are already blocked! Where is so-and-so? What do you mean they didn't come back from hunting yet?

Lots of ways it could have been dealt with while not requiring people to be totally stupid about things.

Smart does not make for entertaining. I like the one scene in Cabin of the Woods where the one guy goes "alright, we have to stick together" two seconds later the controllers, concerned about the sudden insight of communal defense, release a gas and he goes "alright ,everyone split up"
