Wow, shades of Soylent Green I suspect...I've always had a soft spot for zombie films and thought it was alright. The only thing i don't like are the slow moving zombies.... i mean really?
you can out walk, out think them.
I would draw a few 1,000 to me then fire up a front loader problem solved
The whole time I was watching it I thought it was great that they moved so slow. Make it easy to get away from them, lol.I've always had a soft spot for zombie films and thought it was alright. The only thing i don't like are the slow moving zombies.... i mean really?

thats my point they are slow you can out walk them not to mention there's over 200 million guns in this country or a baseball bat although i really like my front loader ideaThe whole time I was watching it I thought it was great that they moved so slow. Make it easy to get away from them, lol.
If you're emotionally tied to a TV show, you need to get outside a little more often. There's plenty of drama in the real world these days...HYPERCRITICAL COMMENTS
If you're emotionally tied to a TV show and get upset over opinions contrary to yours, please don't read this.
Yeah, I was trying to stay engaged during some of the slower portions as well. At least I could FF the commercials.I love this genre, love that they did a series...but man...there were some bad things.
They drag things out because it's cheap to film it that way...when one of my sons came over and watched it on DVR cutting out the crap, it's a 22 minute show.
Let's take several minutes in a cheap park scene to kill on living dead.
Let's burn minutes of film time belly aching about capping the old dead wifie.
Let's burn minutes of film time being coy about how we got injured when a guy has a gun on you.
Whadda you mean? I always disengage my imaginary safety on my imaginary Glock (yes, I realize Glocks don't have safeties, that's one reason I avoid them) when I am about to engage imaginary criminals at an imaginary roadblock...FUNNY THINGS:
While I can somehow accept the crazy, illogical, silly notion of Living Dead and it's my favorite horror genre, there are funny details to this show that drove me nuts.
Normally, Hollywood and TV Land do a decent job with weapons handling. They showed some bad weapons handling in this show...more like the A Team level of smuck.
1. At the Road Block, main dude tells a guy to make sure he's got a round in the chamber and his safety is off. That guy has a GLOCK! (Glock has a safety) Man actually checks his chamber, showing on my HD that not only is the chamber empty, so is the magazine. Then he actually moves his thumb disengaging his imaginary safety.
Yeah, I well know that the USGVT hasn't yet decided to allow Hollywood to borrow any real Abrams tanks (you know, the ones with the still classified armor and comm systems). It bothers me every time I see a modded Chieftain or some other tank made to look like one, but I get why they have to do that. I considered it a worthy attempt, along with use of the Vietnam era "Air Cav" Hueys.2. Unless things changed dramatically since I've been out of the Army, there's no bottom hatch on an M1A1 tank...(and they should never have shown that top view which showed too narrow a turret.) I know, the Dead are Walking and I'm worried about a floor hatch on the M1 tank? Yep. Don't even get me started on the radios and the interior.
Well... he is supposed to be some backwoods, yokel sheriff's deputy in the deep south, no? But yeah, there's no excuse for not carrying a mag fed auto pistol these days. I hope the poor fella gets some more capable firepower in the upcoming episodes...3. Revolver. The world is over the dead walk the earth and Cop is heading into a city. (Not to mention he LOST a firefight previously because he had a revolver and had to reload during it.) I'm not going to use a revolver as a primary. I might hesitate with a Beretta as it generally has only 15 round magazines. Maybe I'd set a minimum at 17 round magazines with pockets full of them.
I totally agree.... fast moving rabid zombies makes sense. I've always had a thing about sci-fi where it's got to have some level of logic to tie the story together. perhaps it was a fast acting virus that turned a large % of the population into slow moving zombies ?I'm a fan of the 28 Days/Weeks later zombies. Running, raging zombies would scare the $#!+ out of me... Slow, stumbling ones not so much. Those are great for Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland and such, but don't offer the greatest threat for serious flicks/shows.
Nah, nothing like that. I like the complete thoughtless screaming violent thoughtless rage of the "28". No planning, communicating or strategizing, just a mob of fast moving predators that do nothing but chase the living with the sole instinctive purpose of killing, eating, contaminating, etc. That concept freaks me out (makes for heartpounding movie watching). The slow zombies are great in comedy, for me at least.to me the fast zombies, talking running around, using tools, Motorolas, planning aren't as interesting...they're merely crazy people who want to bite you. You can communicate with them and they suddenly became evil because of death?
