Walking Dead is really good this year. They've hit that Star Trek N.G./X-Files 4th year groove, where they know just what to do. The beginning of last night's episode gave me chills.
But I can't help but have some questions.
A.) Overall security. Are you telling me they don't have perimeter patrols? Apparently Glenn and his girl in the tower are bopping all night and can't see the 'rat feeder.' It seems strange to me that they don't have more security. Even inside. This is the Zombie apocalypse, after all. Having each of the residents spend 1 or 2 nights a month patrolling the inner and the outer perimeters would seem to be a minimum.
B.) Personal security. Again, Zombie apocalypse? I would have a weapon at all times -- I'd have a weapon next to me in bed, when I go to the bathroom, I'd have hold of my weapon in the shower. (no, not that weapon...). And while I was at it, I'd have my door closed and locked at night. Just because. Hell I'd do that if there weren't no Zombie apocalypse.
Speaking of weapons, I think I'd fashion myself a little rapier type blade, not too long, not too short. One that has a very sharp end and could be used to stab quickly in tight quarters. (Not a samurai sword that is too long to draw when they're already on top of you, like Michonne last night.)
2.) Where are they getting all the stuff?
It's been several months, but they have really cleaned up the place. But where did all the stuff come from? In previous seasons, they were having a hard time finding anything at all -- now they seem to have all the food, ammunition and medicine they need. But they never show any foraging parties.
Hell, they should all be farmers, not just Rick.
3.) The fences. Like I said, should have patrols. I also don't buy that they can't just burn the bodies of the dead zombies so they don't pile up.
4.) What do they do all day? Just wondering. But really, what do they do all day?
None of these are deal breakers -- I think I'm only noticing them because the rest of the show is so good.
