Eugene claimed to be talking to DC on a sat phone. But we have no idea if Eugene was telling the truth, or if the people on the other end of the phone were telling the truth. Either way, he shouldn't be claiming his info is classified, given the constant danger he's in. If he really does have a solution, and he gets killed before he tells anyone, he's doomed the entire human race. Not very smart.

In 2015 we are supposed to have a second Walking Dead show that will deal with things during the outbreak and we should other kinds of answers then.

AFAIK, the bit about dealing with the initial outbreak is speculation, not official.

I'd be a little surprised if we get much back-story. Zombie plagues are definitely the kinds of things whose origins are best left to the imagination, because once you start explaining them they really fall apart fast.

I suspect what we might see is more of the initial reaction to the outbreak. Unfortunately, they've already established that civilization fell awfully fast, so there's probably not much time they could spend on that.

That's true in many respects, but I do think they can deal with the issue in such a way that it doesn't become another Helix.

That's my thought as well. So that really only leaves backstory or a whole new survival show.... basically what we have now.


Either way, I'm in.... at least for ep. 1

He doesn't know his new traveling companions very well. Maybe he's afraid that if he tells them the solution, that they'll kill him. The solution is priceless and there are a lot of bad people out there.

Alternatively, maybe the solution is worse than (or as bad as) the disease. I can't see how that could be the case as the disease is pretty damn bad.

Biting doesn't spread any diseases, it causes an infection that kills people.

Everyone already has the "disease".

Well to be fair, that article was written for zombies in general, not this specific universe.

That's not the case in real life. Rabies is most commonly spread via a bite. The bite itself allows the infected saliva from the host to enter the blood stream of a new victim.

From the CDC's page on rabies:

Quote:
The most common mode of rabies virus transmission is through the bite and virus-containing saliva of an infected host
I don't think it's too much of a stretch to think the Z virus could be spread the same way. Just ignore the fact that Z's don't produce saliva anymore.

You know good and well that no one has ever studied a single zombie bite.

I think you've missed the point of the entire conversation.

The novel WW Z does a great job explaining how a Zombie Apocalypse could happen.


I think AMC could get away with several WD universe spin offs, you can never have too many zombie shows.

Actually a TV mini-series based on WW Z would be really awesome.

Many of the complaints about Walking Dead come from it's comic book roots - they try to give it a comic book feel which might work better in a graphic novel making for cool action packed drawings but maybe seem a little silly when shown on TV.

WW Z on the other hand would be more grounded in our universe and what would happen if there was a Zombie outbreak without being tied to the comic book style.

The movie WWZ was great, but not much like the book. There are lots of zombie stories in the book that never made it to the movie. It would make a great show. The only thing I didn't like about the zombies in the movie was their speed--those were some fast zombies. That would really tip the scales in their favor. We'd be toast.

I enjoy WD for the dystopian storyline, but I couldn't care less about the zombies. Sometimes I think the show focuses too much on showing extremely graphic and detailed zombie kills, when they should be putting that effort into fleshing out the world and thinking more about what survivors would really do in that situation.

Yeah, real zombies aren't fast... and they don't glitter either.

I didn't really care for the movie, probably because it was soo totally different from the book.

One thing I really like about TWD is the great zombie makeup, but like others I think they spend a bit too much time showing graphic kills.
