3 episodes left.... lol wtf.

I didn't realize shows like this were still in a Production phase when they aired.

I would think the 8 episode half-season chunks would be completed before starting to air.

They can't still be shooting... can they?

I know but that kinda work seems like it would be relatively easy to convert to remote work.

Even if you need multiple people collaborating on the editing and whatnot... do it on a WebEx with screen sharing and control sharing.

No matter what they do, it cannot be worse than the green screen at the dump.

Speaking of the 'walking dead'... I had to go back to Page 3 to find the thread.

If anyone was like me, and I'm guessing I'm alone in this, I forgot TWD eps had started back up weeks ago.

SPOILERS - of course
Have questions/comments about ep 11 Morning Stars -- when the horde attacks Hilltop. Hilltop, if I saw it right, made an perimeter defense of wood spikes about 15 yards past their outer walls, and that were about 30 of them were stationed spearing the walkers in the head to hold them there. The Whisperers hit the city walls, and some of the defenders with balloons filled with flammable liquid (supposed to be tree sap). Then they shot flaming arrows at them all, where both outer perimeter and the city walls went up in flames...

The show had the walkers continue to advance on Hilltop... but I thought the walkers were repelled by fire? Did I imagine that, or did the writers just make that TWD' canonical precept disappear?

UPDATE -- never mind, they're attracted to fire.

Walkers are attracted by fire.
Daryl used fire to draw all the walkers in to self immolation when the wolves attacked alexandria and carl lost his eye.

They also used strategically set fires (daryl again) to guide the horde towards the sanctuary when they tried to wipe out the saviors.
Then, the fire from the falling satellite drew in a shit ton of walkers.

Shit...go back to hershels farm and the walkers were drawn by the barn fire.

That is one of the consistent themes over the course of the show.

One of the writers/producers is going to see this post and make them afraid of fire in the finale episode now, thx.

To be fair, in episodes 1 and 2, zombies could use tools, climb fences and ladders, and they sat and rested when not eating... and they completely changed that, so a flip flop wouldnt surprise me.


Makes me think of a one-time-shot zombie behavior that bugged the ever loving shit out of me.

When laurie dies, rick loses his shit and hunts down where she died.
all there was in the room was a zombie with a distended belly... which rick opens up (or just stabs so he could posthumously stab laurie).

The implication is that this fat zombie completely consumed laurie. There was never a body pulled out of that room.

so- zombies eat bitches bones and all?
