    If they were to implement all of the suggestions that we've made here (a ditch around the prison to trap the walkers, line dumptrucks around the fence as a barrier, squash the walkers, etc.) the show would be pretty boring. They need to keep some of the danger, otherwise the walkers are simply a nuisance and not a threat.

    I would totally watch a show dedicated to the mechanics, details and other minutiae involved in creating a walker-proof community.

    I can't find it now but somewhere I saw a video about them wanting to make a moat to catch walkers, but it was not possible due to the location.

    They found quicksand.

    Me too. I'd also like to see more coverage of basic necessities of life in a post-apocalyptic world.

    You might, I'm not sure the other 13 million viewers would.

    Exactly. This is the type of idea that I am talking about when I say that people here forget how dangerous this world is. It's not so easy to just go out and find a Toyota Landcruiser or a snow plow.

    Do I agree that it would be nice to have, of course.

    It is indeed a dangerous world when one cannot find a snow plow or a Toyota Landcruiser. What is a post-apocalyptic street clearer to do? :p

    Just living without civilization is a lot of work.

    We were without power and water for 11 days after hurricane Sandy. (We have a well.) Luckily my work was closed down too, because basic stuff took a good chunk of the daylight hours. Getting wood for the fireplace, getting water to drink and flush the toilet occasionally, going to the first aid squad to shower, surf and charge cell phones, managing our dwindling & thawing food stores, finding gasoline, keeping a 4 year old entertained, finding and preparing food. Challenging enough when surrounded by civilized folks, not walkers.

    Any redneck worth their salt could jerry rig a cow catcher to the front of a 4x4.
    That would make a dandy zombie plow.

    Quicksand seems like a great solution for the Walkers. :)

    I spent the afternoon watching the first 3 episodes of this season. Writing does seem lazy. I can't stand Rick anymore. .... Hell, Carl is the only one I like anymore. I'd like to open the gates for the walkers. and let 'em in.

    I might just quit this show.

    No. It is still fun killing zombies.

    A few episodes ago they were at an old army camp next to the grocery store with the walkers falling through the roof, there were at least two military Hummers sitting there. They should have grabbed those. To get over the dead walkers you need ground clearance.

    As for the water situation, they should find some bottles of bleach to disinfect the water, it doesn't take much bleach (a few drops per gallon) to disinfect it. Or they could boil it, or make a still, or make some contraption to have the UV rays of the sun disinfect it.

    All I know is that so far this season is boring me. I watched the first part of "Talking Dead" and they were so excited and I just kept thinking why?

    I am not sure what it is but I am not liking this as much as I used to.

    People are always excited when they get paid for doing stuff they'd willingly do for free.

    It surprises me they haven't armored the vehicles. A gas powered welder shouldn't be too hard to find. Steel should be in decent supply.

    You don't need fast moving. You need something heavy enough not to be easily tipped over, armor so the windows cannot be smashed. It doesnt even have to be heavy steel armor; expanded metal would be relatively lightweight and still protect from big dumb walkers. Big tires (foam filled if possible) for maneuvering over uneven terrain and resistance to puncture. Slow and steady wins the race.

    I was not surprised carol turned out to be the killer, she was very pragmatic, teaching the kids how to kill (and this was told to Rick). She mercy killed a guy last week to protect the group. That could be seen as foreshadowing of mercy killing the two infected to protect the group. She figured they would die and turn anyway. From her perspective, euthanasia, not murder. She has also demonstrated taking matters into her own hands when she felt leadership would not approve.

    Walkerland doesn't have the same ring to it.
