I havent been keeping accurate track of where they're stabbing them, but the top of heads is usually the weakest until it softens for babies.

Have any kills been via ear/mouth/under jaw?

I haven't been doing anatomy watching kills either, but I do know that when Carol was teaching the kids about it, she teaching them behind the ear.

There are an unusually high percentage of eye shots in the show.

I suppose you could also make the case that they'd just get good at it with countless hours of practice through fence holes.


How long this has been is interesting to me. My instinct was about 2 years since Rick woke up. But seeing the family still working on their supply of Sketti'O's and oxygen tanks, it felt a like a lot less time.

I would imagine as time goes by the bones get weaker, I'm not a biology major so I don't know for certain.

I do that for shows that are just absolutley amazing (i.e., Breaking Bad).
The "i.e." is intentional.

So many of their knives should be broken.

The "Next Week On ..." segments for Mad Men are some of the funniest things on TV. Matthew Weiner is so insane about not giving anything away, but someone, the network, or somebody, obviously make him cut something together anyway. And you wind up with a montage of characters making weird faces and saying things like "Hello", or "That's a good idea", in a manner that just makes no sense at all. It's like a running joke.

The best is Arrested Development.

Yeah I get what you saying.

You know what the should've did instead of bringing the flu into play? They should've made the flu thing only affect the zombies to were it made them faster and more hostile.

I think that would've been better

I wish somebody would kill the governor already.

I'm so tired of him. I knew this would happen

Pretty bad season, pacing is slow and all the major storylines are boring. Real convenient that the governor takes over another group in just one episode and finds rick's group at the end of the very same episode.

And now we get another war we have seen. I didn't expect another season could be worse than season 2 but so far this one seems to be on track.

I disagree. We got to see what happened with the Governor and we didn't get to see a war last season. We got to see The Governor going in all cocky and getting f*cked up and no one honestly died.

I like the season so far.
