"It's the end of the world as we know it"

Extras?........ or Rhyl on a Saturday night?
Well The Walking Dead series 2 came to an end with an appropriate amount of zombies munching their way through the more minor characters of the cast as the Farm burned and the small group of survivors (a cross section of American society) realise that they are indeed just grown up versions of the boys out of The Lord Of The Flies. 
And then there were 10?
The series has become a dark, dark exploration of how quickly humanity and the psychological norms of our  society can be de-constructed into their more basic of components when faced with an apocalypse, and it is these aspects of the series that I have found so interesting..... the zombies are almost incidental
All of us would like to think that we would never lose the more compassionate and intellectual sides of ourselves when disaster rears it's ugly head....


Norman Reedus is a bit of a draw too!!
I can't believe I turned down a night's overtime to watch the finale..... how geeky am I?

  2. I think we should never lose sight of what we might become if life was more important than freedom.

  3. Geeky! Are zombies really scary? Don't they move terribly slowly? I always wonder why people don't just jog away.

  5. delurking to say, less of the intestine munching. I worked colo-rectal for years and never want to see that much guts again.

    My kids laugh at me because I just can't watch the gory bits.

  7. I've started reading "The Hunger Games Trilogy" - looks interesting and first impressions are that life should never be devalued by calculating it down to an equation.

  8. Another possible experiment with humanity? Maybe I should watch it.

  9. Is it just me that finds some of the zombies pretty hot?

  10. Good for you, for passing up the overtime! A quiet night at home with a good program is much better for your health than working extra hours...

    (said the lady who always did consider working an "intrusion on my life"!

  14. I think Joe would quite enjoy smacking a few heads off with a shovel if he had to !
    John D my teenagers have read The Hunger Games Trilogy & took me to the cinema to watch the film of the first book - they said it was very true to the book but not as gory (to obtain a 12 A rating) I found it quite disturbing.

  15. My first and only encounter with zombies was in Salem's Lot. Never again. Give me vampires (NOT Twilight), mummies and various other undeads, but NOT zombies. They freak me out waaaay too much.

  16. Not geeky - it was brilliant! Watched it twice already.

    The cupboard is now full of stores and ammunition...I'm ready!

  20. But the finale was so worth it, wasn't it? Getting to see Michonne with her two zombies in tow, for Rick to finally get grow some balls, and catch a glimpse of the prison. I can't wait for the next season!!

  22. John: in answer to your question, my favorite character is Daryl Dixon. I want him on my side when the zombies arrive....
