I've been trying to figure out, how long was Rick out between the time the zombie stuff started happening and when He woke up?

Cause it seems pretty fucked up that his wife would start fucking around within a couple weeks to a month after she thought he was dead (On the TV show).


Edit: According to the Wiki, he's only out for about a month. That's kinda fucked up.

end-of-the-world-type shock tends to have a loosening effect on the social mores

I'd clarify it but I cant recall how to make the spoiler box. Lets just say, think back to the conversation at the very beginning of the series.

The conversation at the beginning of the series hints heavily that the other man thing has been going on for some time

Got it. Though they didn't do a very good job of it, at least, in my mind.

started watching it today. While zombies are usually a bit "meh" for me I really love this show. In fact, I'm willing to claim that a tv-series is the superior way to deal with this kind of premise. Zombies in movies only really work when people are trapped in a place, their threat just isn't big enough when people can easily get away.

It's still a bit of a bad explanation what with her being angry that the guy told her her husband was dead. It seemed to imply that she only got with him because she thought her husband was dead.

Watching the gory (albeit magnificent) violence on this show, I'm reminded of the disturbingly huge chasm between "acceptable sexuality" and "acceptable violence" on American TV.

Married couple having sex? Banned.

I'm a bit disappointed that this last episode didn't bring THE REALNESS as much as the previous one. This shit just got real at the end of the last ep but in this one they lingered too long and didn't seem to realise how real it just got.


That scientist-dude is going to turn out crazy as fuck by the way, no doubt about it.

Have to say I'm disappointed in how they ended the season, and that they did it so soon.
