Anybody watch it? Other than the deputy checking to make sure his safety was off on his Glock I thought it was a great Zombie flick.

    it was Ok....opening scene with the zombie child was kinda unnecessary i think.

    I watched it. Surprisingly, the story starts at Hwy 18 at Hwy 85 in the chase. That's Woodbury, Ga to be exact. About 20 miles north of where I live. And the patrol cars are old GSP blue and grays. I thought that was pretty dang cool. Seeing a totally empty Atlanta was alittle creepy though. Overall, a good zombie flick.

    I thought it was pretty good, when the zombies do come, the zombie kids are fair game.

    In one of the few times I watch TV, I like to see if there's any scarey stuff on on halloween. Last night I watched the Walking Dead (Part 1). Only problem I had was the start of part 2. Part 2 started about halfway through part 1, so you had to watch half of part one over again to get to where they left off in part 1.

    It was pretty good, but I went to bed.

    CRAP! There was a part two? I went to bed and missed it? [V]
    I love zombie flicks. It justifies all the money I spend on guns and ammo. [8D]

    I only seen part one of a six part mini series. My DVR only recorded part one and it's set to record the whole series.

    Hummmm?

    What I can't figure is why all the zombies in Atlanta looked just the people who live there anyway.

    There was no part two last night. It's not a miniseries, it's an actual show. There are just only 6 episodes filmed so far. The second episode will air next week

    If they're attracted to sound, why even sit on the second floor of the house and snipe them off?

    I didn't think that house is secure enough to to keep them out.

    What did he have, 4 rifles and shotguns slung over his shoulder?

    If he's going into a deserted Atlanta with the outbound lanes full of cars, I think I would be a little more tactical than ride a horse down main street. That 2was just plain stupid.

    I liked it. Curious to see who he was talking to on the radio at the end there.

    I think the cop is a dumb SOB! Hey, there's a million wrecked cars in the outbound lanes of the city, what does that tell you stupid?

    I know what it tells me, those people were too stupid to get over in the inbound lanes![:D]

    I thought the same thing. If the city was safe why were the outbound lanes clogged while the inbound lanes were empty? THe people were fleeing from something. Hmmm?

    Typical county deputy with the "I'm the sheriff." and walk right down main street only to say "Holy poop! There's a block full of zombies.

    I suspect there are several normal people in Atlanta. With all those building, sneaking around tactically would be much easier. In a big city, the people are probably up high in the skyscrapers.

    Can zombies climb multiply stories without getting disoriented between up the stairs and down the stairs?

    Somebody was probably baiting the zombies to get that many in one block. I imagine there was coordination between several people with radios.

    Yeah, I was alittle disappointed not seeing that tank used to it's potential, but, hey, there is a part two!

    Did anybody[;)] see the "Blue painted" (inert) main gun rounds all lined up in a row when the 'Sheriff' crawled into the belly of the tank? and did anyone else note the wide open space inside the tank? I thought that it would be a little more cramped than that.

    IIRC the M1 tank does have a lot of room inside, relatively speaking...but most of that is required for the main gun recoil path

    unless I am confusing with the M109 self-propelled...now that one had a TON of room inside but the crewman told me that the howitzer takes most of that room up when it fires.

    The tank has way more room in it than the M109 the gun itself takes up about a 1/3 of the room and about 1/2 when in recoil. There is just enough room to stand on either side of the gun when fired.

    Whoever had the bright idea to wreck that Judge needs to have his balls hung up in a grizzly bear trap.[:(!][V]

    I agree but Select Fire had all the Camaro's spoken for.
