Hopefully this stick to more of a scientific-based idea like we saw the beginnings of in episode 5. Lost seemed to lose it's way when it went to more of a "fantasy" idea in season 6.

I don't see that much of a comparison. Lost had mysterious enemies while The Walking Dead's is known (zombies). The Lost people were on isolated on an island while The Walking Dead people can roam around the country. Maybe if they jump back to the 1970s and join the Dharma Initiative, then I'll start to buy in to a comparison.

Nope. You started off with: "Zombies = Smoke Monster" when those things are not alike at all.

He didn't but I thought he did too at first. It was just a guy who looks a lot like him. After the attack I was confused as to why he was still acting normal so I went back to the scene and it was just some random guy in their group.

What? Damn, I heard they got renewed for a season two of 13 eps. I guess that makes sense. They couldn't make too many eps without being sure the network would run with it. Sucks though because I really like this show. Reminds me of a 28 Days Later series.

ahhh. i'll have to let that guy at work know. i thought that if he did, it would have tied in w/ the CDC's guys problem of running out of fresh zombie meat to run tests on.

well I was 2 episodes behind. (was on vacation for a week)
Watched both yesterday after work and I am now caught up.
I love this show..very suspenseful and intense. I am not that much of a critic and alot of the time I just take things for what they are..so I have nothing bad to say about this show. It is great.

The one thing I am pissed about is that I was just reading through this thread and catching up.
(I hadn't read in it or commented since like page 3 or 4 because I was behind on the show and had it saved in my dvr. Didn't want to read spoils.
Anyway..now that I'm all caught up I was just reading and Glide walked by my office (we work together) and I was telling him how I'm finally caught up and how great it is .. blah blah and how now I'm reading up in this thread.
He told me to stop in my tracks (I'm only half way through this thread) because there is spoilers in here that might not even be revealed in the show until maybe season 2 or season 3. I was like I don't want to know that ish right now. I told him "no bro I'm gonna read the thread. Do you seriously think I shouldn't? .. . " he said "dude you shouldn't read on if you don't want to know.."

I was like that's a bummer and that pisses me off.

Well I believe most spoilers are put in white, which is good. But nobody can possibly know what's going to be in the second season even if they read the comics (like I have). They are deviating quite away from it anyway.

Btw..... question in white: RV got fixed suddenly?

Yeah spoilers are put in white, but when you quote white text it becomes visible.

I mean if you quote it like what you just did, then it won't work of course. But BRabbit did it a few posts above which didn't actually quote the spoiler content.
