    So...I thought always thought for whatever reason something I heard that it was taboo to show children zombies on TV. Yet The first episode season 1 Walking Dead...Holy Crap "Little Girl"....And Sophia later. Did I hear incorrectly ?

    :dunno: I never heard of that.

    However, a lot of things have changed over the years. I don't agree with most of them but that is how I was raised.

    Things change. Used to be zombies only ate brains, now they eat all of you! They used to bite you and you became a zombie, now it's a virus.

    Get with it , dude. :supergrin:

    They used to just slowly amble clumsily along and you could just push them away.

    Now, some of them can run. FAST!

    It's only a matter of time before zombies and humans start reproducing and making a whole new breed of halflings.

    I think the rules is you can't kill kids on film, guess you can show them if they are already dead.

    They're called "Moderates" or "RINOs". It's what happens when a conservative mates with a zombie... The oldest known specimen is John McCain, with the best known being GHW Bush.

    You can shoot them, you just can't show the gunshot and the kid in the same scene. In each they showed the shot and then cut immediately to the kid with the wound already there.

    Kinda like the deer hunting shows.......you can show the hunter shooting and the deer reacting, you just can't show the hunter shooting the deer.

    Killing kids or animals has always been considered a cheap shot to tug at people's emotions unless the story relies on it.

    Plus working with kids and animals can be a real pain. Kids also aren't the best actors.
