What's your point? Where did I argue that Shane is a good person? I said hes the only one making honest/believable decisions given his circumstances.


edit: does anyone else think that World War Z could have been awesome source material for a huge zombie apocalypse television series? Too bad it's being wasted on a film.

Bullshit.
Shooting a guy in the leg to make your get away = fucked up reality of the Zombie End-Times.
Attempted rape and fratricide = scum bag.

The redneck is way more badass than Shane anyway.

Despite the small OMG moment this was still a shitty episode.

 

Zombies are pretty easy to smack in the head. All the survivors have done that as it saves ammo and is a quiet kill. My guess is that everyone would carry a blunt weapon as well as a gun.  Shane and Otis are in an elevated postion where the Zombies can't reach them and could easily lean down and start crushing their skulls. They could even use the butts of their rifles. But they don't ... they waste ammo and run this way and that. 

 

If there is a door to the locker room and eventually outside why the hell would Shane jump from a 20' window?

 

In the woods you have a hanging Zombie with no legs. If Daryl needed to kill him there's no bloody way he would waste a crossbow bolt (much harder to replace then a bullet). Either cut him down and bash or use the crossbow then cut him down and retrieve. 

 

The rest of the episode - people talking and talking and talking.

some of you guys bitching about how this isn't like real life...

need to get serious.

if a real zombie apocalypse were to happen, we'd all be dead because most of us are fat fucks that sit around in the office... so we'd all be like carls running around.

no one wants to watch that though.

Seriously, I keep waiting for them to take the high ground and start getting stabby. I'm thinking a boar spear or even a six foot length of sharpened rebar while on the roof of a truck or that stupid RV and they could handle quite a horde.

I also got to thinking. . . what about finding a small island and killing every fucking zombie on it? Maybe one the sea islands off GA, grow some cotton, some root vegetables, and you're good to go.

You could make a assualt team and launch attacks from a boat. Maybe set up a barricade with your back to the sea, set of some noise makers and slay until your arms get tired or your barrier starts to get over run. Retreat to the sea. Rinse, wash, repeat.

This show went down the shitter. When did this show become the zombie version of Lost?

Maybe you should read and comprehend what the actual complaints are. thanks.

Can't argue with any of that, but Shane is still the best, most believable character in the show. Redneck Dale is cool too.

Whole lot of rage built up in that guy, and its coming out in the worst ways. I didn't predict what was coming, but I knew *something* like this was coming from him ever since he beat the shit out of whatever his face was.

I'm most interested in seeing Shane slip more and more into madness as the show progresses.

Shane shooting the guy in the leg was the thing to do. If he didn't they both would have died, and his best friend's son would have no chance. What would you do? Sacrifice some big fatso who shot your best friend's son in order to save said son, or let yourself get eaten by a horde of zombies?

I would have put the bullet in his head instead of the leg. I mean, seriously? That's just cruel.

 

I have a question about the camper who hung himself; the zombies had eaten away his legs. Did they do this after he was dead but before he had turned? If not, why aren't they running around chewing on each other?

The leg shot was iffy to me, IMO he could have popped him in the head, the fresh meat and gunshot should have been plenty to attract the walkers to the body. *shrug

But still, made for a great scene.

um.. I was sorta saying this. As in it's the Zombie end times and so shit like that is justifiable. It was the other stuff that makes Shane a SB.
