Why they smash so many cars up but that green Hyundai is pristine, and, as this zombie problem has been going of for a few years, how they got such an up to date model. Surely it wouldn't be designed?

<clearly needs to find something better to do>

GillyBillyWilly Sat 09-Nov-13 10:56:45

But who cares when you can just stare at Norman Reedus!!!!

gordyslovesheep Sat 09-Nov-13 10:57:41

yeh what Gilly said grin

Spirulina Sat 09-Nov-13 10:58:17

Speaking of Norman reedus, why isn't he clad head to toe in leather? All of them should be. Zombies might struggle a bit to bite through it

Normalisavariantofcrazy Sat 09-Nov-13 10:58:37

Really?! He's got a weasel face!

blush I said to DH last night "they have hovered the boot - you don't even hoover our boot and they are living in a zombie apocalypse!"

{needs to get out more!}

Normalisavariantofcrazy Sat 09-Nov-13 11:00:59

Exactly!

Which one is norman reedus?

LtEveDallas Sat 09-Nov-13 11:01:00

I don't think it has been going on that long. A year maybe, max 18 months (Judith looks about 6 months, plus 9 months pregnancy, plus a couple more for safety sake).

Normalisavariantofcrazy Sat 09-Nov-13 11:01:54

The one with the crossbow

GillyBillyWilly Sat 09-Nov-13 11:02:30

DARYL DIXON

Normalisavariantofcrazy Sat 09-Nov-13 11:03:24

I'm watching it right now and I totally forgot that was his name blush

TheWickedWitchOfTheWest Sat 09-Nov-13 11:08:14

What Gilly said. grin

SaskiaRembrandtWasFramed Sat 09-Nov-13 11:16:03

I'd like to know who's been cutting and styling Carol's hair.

And in that episode when the pig fell ill, why didn't they ask Hershel to check it over, what with him being a vet.

PatTheHammer Sat 09-Nov-13 11:16:51

I think about it far too deeply when I watch it too (as well as staring at Norman's arms).

I think it has been about 18mths-2yrs, plus not everywhere would have 'gone zombie' straight away.

At what stage will all the tyres go to shit though? Surely after about 10-15 years of nobody making any new car parts they will be screwed, unless they raid a car plant and stock up on stuff that's been kept undercover.

Maybe time for just horses by then, if they are able to breed any without them becoming zombie food.

Who's doing the haircuts? Where is Beth getting her clothes? She's growing and I don't think men's prisons have a large stock of clothing for teenage girls.

Where do they get the petrol?
Bullets?

If the prison water supply is outside the fence why not extend the fence or build a new one so zombies can't crrep up on you when you are clearing the pump.

Where are the child zombies (other than 2 named characters)?

And, even now I still go .............Egg? Egg? wtf Egg?

So back to Norman Reedus.

PatTheHammer Sat 09-Nov-13 11:18:47

Actually haven't they only been through one winter so far (in season 2). So can't be quite 2 years yet.
Not sure if the winters are that cold in Georgia but I'm sure they mentioned it.

Normalisavariantofcrazy Sat 09-Nov-13 11:19:56

And where is the petrol coming from
And why, until this series, did no one just 'die' like why has Hershel not had a heart attack?
And where did the dr come from last week?
And why has no one queried Rick's dodgy accent?

Normalisavariantofcrazy Sat 09-Nov-13 11:20:25

And his is their hair always wonderfully shiny and uber conditioned?

PatTheHammer Sat 09-Nov-13 11:21:44

Haircuts and clothing are quite straightforward.

I think bullets must be fairly easy to come by in most American houses if they are doing house searches a lot they will find plenty of clothes (fleeing people pack lightly).
Petrol would need siphoning off abandoned cars.

I think child zombies are more rare because the children invariably get eaten (no strength to run away after being bit/fight off zombie).

PatTheHammer Sat 09-Nov-13 11:23:00

If you don't wash hair doesn't it get really good condition after a whole? They are using the noo-poo method, clearly after reading about it on Mumsnet.

PatTheHammer Sat 09-Nov-13 11:24:05

Yes, was that Dr from Woodbury?

aha - yes Daryl - I would be making sure we were very best friends ina zombie apocalypse grin And i'd be nicking whatserfaces long swords that slice bone like butter and never need sharpening!

Why did Carol just go last night - she coud have just gone back to the prison and told everyone Rick is off on one again and she doesn't know what hes talking about!

(but I think Daryl is going to kick Ricks arse when he finds out he sent Carol packing - can't wait!)

PatTheHammer Sat 09-Nov-13 11:32:58

I don't know why he did that to Carol apart from he doesn't trust her anymore. I think Rick has made worse calls than what Carol did to be honest.

plentyofsoap Sat 09-Nov-13 11:33:02

Egg has done well for himself!
Think it is losing its appeal abit now. Carol's hair does look good though.
