Questions for Deadheads

TWDAbout a month ago I discovered The Walking Dead and have spent the past four weeks watching the first four and a half series and now I’ve caught up to where the series is at.

With my overdose of TWD I have a few questions that I hope some other aficionados of the show may be able to answer.

  1. Why don’t the survivors sleep in/live in the trees? I mean if they can assemble walls and communities then surely they could make a community off the ground. But even if they didn’t live in the trees, wouldn’t sleeping in them at night be a better idea than on the ground?
  2. Why don’t the survivors head to the water? If there are vehicles that have petrol, then surely there’d be boats etc that could be utilised to live off shore.
  3. Why doesn’t anybody refer to the ‘dead’ as Zombies? Series one was set in present time. This means that every character that lived in the world before it fell would have had an understanding of the mythical idea of Zombies, these are Zombies, why does no one use the word?
  4. How did the dead get such strong teeth? As the rest of their bodies seem to fall apart at the slightest touch, what has happened to make their teeth so strong to tear through skin and muscle.
  5. Why does it seem there can only be one main male black character? T-Dog dies the same episode Tyresse turns up, Tyreese dies just as Noah becomes part of the core cast.

Anyway I realise that it is a drama and doesn’t need to always connect the dots, but maybe you have some thoughts around the programme or maybe just want to share you love of TWD

    I like your thinking Pat! Sounds like you’d be a great person to go through an apocalypse with. (Keep in touch I may need to find you.) I got into watching it with my 15 year old son as a way of sharing ‘quality time’ together. I’m on the edge of the couch the whole time – I just love to hate it! There was a program called “The Survivors” years ago, I loved watching that when I was 15. Interesting how gory things have gotten!!

      I know what you mean Jo, I’m sometimes watching it thinking how far we’ve come since I was a kid with what is allowed on TV. I love TWD though 😉
