    Heck, it could be a completely different prison.

    I absolutely love Talking Dead. I always watch it immediately after watching Walking Dead because I love the contrast of going from all the darkness to the humor. Plus I love the 'behind the scenes' stuff and the guest stars from the show.

    They seemed to indicate being surrounded on various sides by zombies. It wouldn't surprise me if they back tracked to the prison after exploring various roads.

    Well none of the information they give is vital to the show but they do go deeper into things such as why they cut off Herschels leg and some backstory stuff.

    Also a good way to not have to deal with Carl growing taller/looking older between seasons if there wasn't supposed to be a passage of time.

    yeah...I'm not sure if they did or did not already know about the prison (nor do I really care) but either way they decided it is now their best option and the risk is worth it.

    Based on Rick's reaction to the dog food, I tend to think they didn't know about it prior.

    I've heard conflicting reports as to whether the exterior shots were done at a prison (supposedly it was the West Central Prison in Zebulon, GA), but the interiors were definitely on a soundstage.

    I wonder what you would do in a prison during the zombie Apocalypse? If the prisoners were mostly in cells, there wouldn't be much reason to let them out. As the guards turned, they wouldn't be smart enough to use the keys to get them out, would they? So they'd try to reach into the cells, but the prisoners could probably stay out of their reach until they starve to death and turn themselves--so the biggest population would still be in their cells with only the guards running around? Unless they decided to let everybody go to try and save themselves. Big mistake.

    Prisoners would grab keys off guards that wandered close... except perhaps prisons where the doors didn't have locks and were only controlled remotely, or otherwise where such locks simply were in a location not reachable from inside a cell.

    I agree, but for the sake of the show, I bet most of the population in the prison is roaming around. If they were all locked up, dealing with the zombies would be boring.

    Maybe cleared up is the wrong term. Gave more depth to something I already assumed is more accurate.

    I can easily buy into that they didn't get to the prison right away. It was just cool to hear the writer's point of view.

    I know this thread is dead, but since it's infected, we have to kill it again - aim for the head this time.

    Anyway, most modern prisons have remotely controlled cell doors that a) require power to operate and b) have a manual override to open the cell doors if there is no power, or they fail open - meaning that if power fails, the cells automatically open.

    Prisons don't have power backup that lasts for 6 months, so I would assume that after some time in the cells, once the power ran out, the cell doors just opened and they were free to roam the cell block and get killed.
