The drama for me was OK - I mean the series does address some of the problems that would come up in such a catastrophic event (although it was, admittedly, drawn out).

What I miss and was actually hoping to see were the logistics on how they defend against the zombies. It seems that the writers should play Half Life 2 all the way through, and perhaps Fallout 3/Vegas to get ideas for plot support concepts.

Some quick notes

○ Welding/improvised weapons - where are these? You have two cops and a hunter, and they are using things like crossbows (which works, but not against multiple targets) and baseball bats? Are you kidding me? Welding is one skill that would be desperately needed, and I would find it hard to believe that not one person in this group knows how to weld, nor has any effort been made to procure welding equipment. With basic welding (arc/tig/mig/oxy) you can not only make superior improvised weapons, you can also weld plate steel to things like car windows. For example, take a 6 foot steel pipe (1"). Get two katana style combat knives (they have to be everywhere) and strip them down to the tang. Weld the knives to each end of the pipe. Now practice using it on dummies for a few hours. Now you have a kick ass improvised weapon that is head and shoulders above any crow bar or baseball bat.

○ Establishing a perimeter - again, two cops and a hunter, and nobody has figured out how to establish an effective mechanical perimeter? They seriously thought that "camping out" 5 miles away from one of the biggest cities in the US was a great strategy? Their only perimeter was strings and cans. I mean, come on. Really?

○ Improvised body armor - in this show, there is really only one thing that they have to defend against, and that is a bite from an undead. Zombies do not carry weapons. Granted, it's really hot there, but why is there a complete ignorance of improvised body armor? You can use things like helmets, diving "shark suits" (with a small layer of Kevlar), leather or even rubber for makeshift body armor against the walking dead. Instead, everyone is running around (even at night) with wife-beaters and plaid cotton shirts. So, months later and nobody has figured out that *at least* two of them need to be armored up a little?

These are some things that would have made great supporting story elements, and all of them were completely ignored.

There is a rumor going around that the show could come back in July instead of October. From what I've read the logic behind it is that AMC already has great ratings during that month because of Fearfest, and pushing the show back to July would help bring more viewers to AMC during months they are usually down.

Also, they have been showing the first season on AMC again the past couple of days. They showed the first three yesterday, and the last three today. Sorry if you already missed the good ones.

A little bit of new info on season 2. Apparently they will be heading out to the country and live on a farm for most of the season. They also said that besides the main love triangle, more people on the show will be hooking up.

Personally, I hate that. How is there time for sex in a zombie apocalypse?

Anyone know approximately when Season 2 starts? I've finished the first 6 episodes, but now I am craving for more zombies xD
