Newdude, Mika was the little sister.  Lizzie was the batsh!t crazy one.

jdiggitty, there was already one grave at the home when they arrived.  It had a pari of bronzed baby shoes hanging on the cross.

 misterpeed, I don't believe we all see the same ad.  Ads are placed by region and internet service provider.  The ad attached to mine was for AT&T.

I'm partial to that FLaming Lips tracks from the Batman Forever soundtrack.

Just as long as after we crush stuff, Arnold then yells at me to "GET TO THE CHOPPA!" It'll totally be work it!

Is it bad that at first I read "cropped" at the beginning of the article as "crapped?"

The Walking Dead: Alone Review (Article) - 3/13/2014 8:10:53 AM

Ok, I retract the statement about T-Dog being bitten in Season 2.  He did slice his arm on some metal or something tryin gto fix the RV, I think.

That said, I'm having trouble recall anytime on the show when the zombie bite meant you immediately turn into a zombie.  I think it's been shown on the series that the bits act as a cataylst that leads to infection and speeds up the virus (which is present in everyone) eventually leading to death and becoming a zombie. Now once the person is dead the change is pretty quick.  However, if you're just simply bit and don't die immediately, then the infection and fever is more of a slow burn.  I think the only time a bit has come to fruition is when they left the Guy under the tree in season 1 (Though technically we didn't see him turn...probably off'd himself before it could).  I think most all the other instances the turn to zombie has happened through traumatic injury leading to death.

But the show has definitely made the statement that zombie blood doesn't cause the virus.  They have time after time used zombie blood as camouflage from other zombies.  The only reason I can think of as to why zombie blood splatter, guts, etc. wouldn't cause you to turn into a zombie on the show is because the virus or whatever the gene is that causes all this needs that fever/infection from the bites to speed up the process to death.

HomestarRunner, that actually makes me really happy to hear.  I had no idea that it was a BBC America only deal.  I still dislike the character overall (they ruined River Song with that arc), but maybe slightly less than I used to.  Thanks!

blankczech, a bite from a zombie has never been shown to immediately change you into a zombie on this show.  The bites to excelerate the process through by causing a fever that can lead to death, which then turns you into a zombie.  And Herschel is not the only character to survive a bite from a zombie.  T-Dog was bitten in season 1, but Dale and the crew treated him with antibotics and aspirin to keep the fever down.  He did survive (at least until last year).  I think the fastest transformation into a zombie we've seen on the show was Shane.  I think the reasoning for that was just that he was in fact dead after Carl shot him.

As for the getting zombie infected blood on themselves, they have shown from the beginning of the series that it isn't an issue and doesn't lead you to becoming a zombie.  They covered themselves in blood and intrails in like the 2nd or 3rd episode as a way of masking themselves to manuver through the hords of zombies in Atlanta.

 ^^LOL!

The Walking Dead: Alone Review (Article) - 3/11/2014 12:15:40 PM

I gotta agree with Violator.  No one said we need tons and tons of zombie action in an episode.  I liked the first couple of episodes back from the break.  Even the episode of Rick hiding under a bed for 40 minutes was more tensionfulled than something like this week.  Last week at least it was a little tiny bit of character development.  Although I will say the revealation that Daryl was a dumb, drug/alcohol addict, redneck following around his brother like a little puppy was pretty much what we've been told already, so I don't think that qualifies as character development.  

Honestly, I think this show could greatly benefit from a Game of Thrones style of storytelling.  7 minutes or so each episode of the various groups and their journeys.  It would help trim some of the fat off episodes like this week and last week.  People are still overly critical about GoT for this method, but I for one like all the chess pieces moving and such.  It's frustrating only because we only get 10 episodes every year.
