i read the first one, the TV follows it pretty well, even when he stops at the end of episode 1 and shoots the half-zombie lieing in the park.

Loved it..I like how they are keeping somewhat of the plot of the comic books. I'm reading the second one right now out of 6. If you like the show so far it only gets better.

Photoshop screw up on racist-redneck-guy's axe in that image.

I got around to watching the opener to season 2 yesterday, and it was decentish. I still think the group of survivors is far more annoying than anyone surviving one month out from the zombie apocalypse has any right to be. I really, REALLY want blondey to get eaten. She never. Stops. WHINGING!

On top of that, the zombos are a bit puzzling. We see that you can easily kill them with a rock, a knife, or a screwdriver... But they trump tanks?

I cant watch the new season yet but do you mean that in a general sense because of all the used military stuff laying around? Because what brought the war machines down wasnt likely mobs of zombies but the destruction of the infrastructure required to keep them fueled, armed and functional. Most of our modern technology, especially the more advanced stuff, becomes useless as the support grid fails.

If referring to something from the new episode specifically, then disregard.

Tanks use fletchette rounds for anti-personnel operations, which basically turn the tank into a massive shotgun. One blast would be able to take out literally hundreds of zombies. Just one. The "support grid" could not be taken down, as each tank in the force would be worth tens of thousands of zombie tangos. Even if you couldn't bring fuel to the tank, you could always bring tanks to the fuel. Tanks are made to drive through buildings, a couple squishy zombos won't stop you.

But this is a reality for any zombie invasion, and not specifically criticism for Walking Dead. What bugs me in Walking Dead is that it actually SHOWS tanks laying around all over the place, shoving in our face the impossibility of zombie apocalypses.
