AMC's The Walking Dead returns Sunday!

anyone else pumped?
I understand they have also been renewed for another season.
I'm looking forward to the integration of the new subgroup with Tyrese and how things with the Gov will play out.
What say you?

If no one was shooting or stabbing them in the head, would zombies live forever?

Wouldn't their flesh (and brains) eventually desiccate and decay? Once all their flesh fell off and the tendons rotted away, wouldn't their bones just fall apart?

(Kind of like the Terminator movies. Once all the robots killed all of humanity, would they just stop and freeze where they stood?)

Yes, but there would be no end of zombies as long as people live.

Remember the zombie virus is inside everyone. Once someone dies (be it from natural causes or other) they become a zombie.

The Bachelor is awesome! Not the show... just the uh... mood it puts my wife in afterwards I'll keep watching The Bachelor as long as that keeps happening.

Watching The Walking dead with my wife would do the opposite to her so I'll have to keep watching on my own.

My buddy was working for AMC studios awhile back and said they do not allow their employees to carry firearms at work. It is in their employee handbook. I suggest we boycott AMC and their channel as well as all their shows in order to get them to change to a pro-gun policy and allow their employees to be safe.

On or near a set I could understand not wanting ammo or guns to get mixed up with the prop stuff.

Sadly, we remember the case of Brandon Lee, who was killed with a real .44 mag handgun firing a blank... Unfortunately, there was a real bullet that had gotten dislodged from a dummy round still wedged into one of the chambers...

According to the authority in modern-classic (Romero-esque) zombie folklore, Max Brooks, a zombie has no metabolism outside of the brain. The Z-Virus, keeps the brain going, and the body continues to rot and wither until it turns to jerky... This is all of course physically impossible, since you need muscles to move...

He also mentions that the Z virus also makes the bodies much less accommodating to the usual microbial suspects involved in the decaying processes. Essentially, not even bugs or bacteria can thrive in the presence of the virus, so normal decay takes significantly longer.

Looking forward to it. Wish they'd get longer seasons like the network tv shows.

First couple seasons were great...now it has lost its schtick to me mostly because it just gets more convoluted...same thing with Falling Skies. I will watch but have grown disappointed and indiffernt myself.

In the prison episode you see exactly that. Remember when the CO's pro mask comes off and his face comes with it?
