    Does that make it any less of a stupid decision?

    ummm, yeah. They still had guns, just not an arsenal. And thanks to Shane they will be leaving the relative comfort and safety of the farm. So, in balance, they were better off with Shane not having his hands on the gun stash.

    Kind of the logical flaw in most zombie movies - they eat/tear-to-shreds the bit characters but just bite the main characters.

    Well that and the fact that every yard still looks freshly mowed, even months after the zombie apocalypse.

    Ha so he can rape you? Daryl or Glen are the best.

    You Shane followers, would you have followed him so far to the point that he kills Herschel and his family to take over the farm to stop living by his rules?

    Probably, in that situation I think anyone would. You think laws, property rights, morals, etc, mean anything in that situation?

    Not trying to glorify, but come on. When people are tired, hungry, desperate and terrified they'd do anything to anyone to ensure survival.

    Shane's problem though, is he's right on about surviving the zombies, but he's most likely to get popped off by a living person than anything.

    Yes. A great poet once said, "A man got to have a code." That you do everything to protect yourself doesn't mean you prey on others. Especially at times of hardship.

    Hahah we just can't go 3 pages here w/o bringing up The Wire.

    Not saying it's right, just saying that's the way it is. And honestly, if I was in the TWD, I wouldn't be following Shane because I'd have likely been one of the dumbasses eaten in the first season.

    I'd rather follow Rick. Shane would just as soon kill you as to risk his life to save yours.

    Only.person I would befriend in this rag tag group is Glen. All the others are idiots and would shorten your life expectancy in a heart beat.

    Glen is a gangster. Who would have thought the pizza delivery boy would be so useful.

    I don't doubt that, given enough time and the right kinds of negative experience, I could resort to a completely barbaric state. But I feel pretty comfortable saying that it wouldn't be my first resort.

    I don't see where people are coming from in wanting to follow Shane. He's a thug and a loose cannon, and he would be happy to kill you to save himself.

    Kind of funny, I just changed my DVR settings to stop recording the re-runs. Guess I'll have to set it back up again, although my enthusiasm is minimal at this point.
