    I guess because when they came out of the cornfield, they came out ahead of the truck, and mullet boy was the first human they saw? It's plausible.

    For a second I was halfway expecting one of them to be Merle, but then I remembered that couldn't be. :eek:

    But the point I'm making is that I did keep looking for a point to all that, and like you I never really found one.

    Except "I am Legend" is based on a book of the same name from 1954, and had two other films made based on the original book: The Last Man on Earth (1964) and The Omega Man (1971).

    The novel was also the inspiration behind the 1968 film Night of the Living Dead.

    BTW, did we all note that the zombies were attracted by the movement of that deflated mylar balloon that was flapping around in the wind on top of that stop sign? Guess that answered the question of if they are or are not attracted by movement.

    Right, but the book (which I have read several times) doesn't have the Sanctuary ending that the movie does. In fact, the movie is so completely different from the book that they really shouldn't even share the same name, since that's about all they have in common.

    So that doesn't support your "point" at all.

    Frankly, the entire "sanctuary" thing reminded me of the sanctuary in Logan's Run, which mirrors TWD "sanctuary" plot pretty well (so far). A bunch of runners all out to find this mythical place of salvation.

    It is a hackneyed trope, but it's not unreasonable or unrealistic imo. There are bound to be places like that during a ZA.


    I'm more worried about the 'lazy' writing in this episode. Hopefully it's just temporary and nothing more than filler to get them all to this sanctuary.

    Right. It's not exactly a new idea, but it's such an obvious one for what people would actually try to do in such a scenario that it doesn't bother me at all.

    In my case, it was the first time I ever FFWD through any of this show. But some of the stuff in this episode was just boring. I realized that I missed one bit and went back to catch it. Other than that, all I missed (not) was the long, boring bit with the guys infiltrating the house. Didn't even miss anything there, since I just did FF1. It was long enough watching it that way, I have to say.

    As I mentioned in the previous WD thread -- there is no such thing as a baby walker....only a toddler walker....:D

    That's not my point -- my point is the ridiculous plot line of someone hiding under a bed and not being discovered. That would be among the first places I would look for a non-walker if I was searching a house....totally "unrealistic" (and I understand we're talking about a ZA here)

    OK so some goober with a mullet knows what started this all which supposedly gives him the key to solving his whole thing. But it is classified information. Why would a solution to this problem be classified? Wouldn't you want to tell as many people as possible?

    Well since he is the only one who knows, we can pretty much figure out what is going to happen to him relatively soon.

    Yeah...interesting that they have pointed that out in 2 back to back episodes. Boy...that would sure making setting up a safety zone or perimeter a lot easier. All you'd need is some sort of speaker/noise to lure them somewhere else.

    Yeah....classified to who? Also...just because you know what started/caused something doesn't mean you would know how to fix it. If he is the only one in that group that knows the "secret" then that is just DUMB.

    True.


    A "smart" person would not attempt to use an instrument with which he has no familiarity in such a perilous situation. A "smart" person would have taken another tact like grabbing a weapon he could use and/or run towards those who could use that weapon. So far, mullet-head has only demonstrated that he is smarter than Abraham by fooling him into believing he is "smart".

    They did do a good job of introducing Abraham, Eugene, & Rosita. I threw this together this morning to show someone.
