Re: Official RedsZone Television Viewing Thread
I haven't seen episode 6 of the Walking Dead yet, but I've enjoyed this season. I never read the books, so I have don't have a clue where the show is going exactly or how closely it even follows the books, but I think there have been several fascinating takes on an end of the world scenerio such as this. You can only do so much with zombies, before its just another zombie scene, but the question of how much do you risk yourself for the life of someone you hardly know, do you try to repopulate the planet or is it worse to bring new life into such a harsh environment, to what extents do you just give up or try to survive, how much trust can you put in a stranger with a completely different background when there are so few around.
These are all questions that I hope/assume we'll never have to face, but are fun to think about. In the end of days, how are you going to react? The zombie's are just a sci-fi sidekick to the real plot of the story. You start doing too much zombie stuff and it becomes stale.
Like I said, I haven't seen the last episode, but I'll assume everything's leading up to the scene in the barn. That is a fascinating question in and of itself if you can suspend reality long enough to think it possible.
