IMy enjoyment of the second half of this season was greatly diminished due to the fact that I couldn't participate here in the forums. Oh well, I suppose I need to go catch up.

diebartdie - I ran the 5k last year in Baltimore and I'll be running it again this October. It was an interesting experience, both good and bad, in terms of logistics and overzealousness on the part of certain zombies and certain runners, which resulted in several injuries. It required a lot more conditioning and training that I expected and I was woefully underprepared last year and ended up quitting before the end.

My kid and I were in the commercial for the race, and the "making of" video on YouTube. Which is among the more interesting things I've done in my life. You can actually see kiddo in the commercial, and I am apparently the final zombie growl at the end of the commercial. He's the kid in the green shirt and I'm in the bloody scrubs.

And - by way of introduction - I'm Liz. I'm a huge zombie fan (Romero-style), but knew basically nothing about the Walking Dead other than what google and wikipedia told me before watching. Zombies scare the crap out of me, but I can't resist the genre.

So I decided to search for the CDC in Atlanta (using Google Maps), and while trying to get a street view to load, I noticed something funny in one of the 5 reviews. It's at 1600 Clifton Road Northeast in Atlanta. Somebody is hilarious!

Heh, thanks for the tip, there a few more funny comments now.

I'm also a zombie fan, and since my zombie-loving boyfriend and I have broken up, I'll be watching on my own when the new season starts. I didn't know anything about the Walking Dead either - I have all of the comics loaded digitally now and will be getting my zombie fix over the summer reading them.

Hello everyone, magpye here. My love of shiny things could be a problem in the ZA, but I just can't help myself. I'm a huge fan of post-apocalyptic fiction--there's a lot of decent stuff out there on the YA shelves.

My daughter hooked my son and me onto this show, and now it's become family bonding viewing. We needed it. A couple of years ago, my son and his best friend used to go to Walmart with me on every trip, which I thought was odd until I discovered they were playing "Zombie Apocalypse." They would spend the whole time plotting survival strategies, making supply lists, creating their stronghold, etc. This was well before TWD, but I totally loved it when I found out what they were doing.

Just announced - Danai Gurira (Michonne) and previously announced Chandler Riggs (Carl) will be at Seattle's Emerald City Comicon this March. The prices seem excellent too. I might just have to get to this. The artist from the Walking Dead comic books, Charlie Adlard is there also.

There is going to be a Walking Dead panel in Cincinnati in March [22-24] at HorrorHound Weekend. There are a bunch of people from the show there and possibly more to come, and it is currently dirt cheap ($35) for a 3-day pass. The list is already:

  • Norman Reedus (Daryl)
  • Jon Bernthal (Shane)
  • Michael Rooker (Merle)
  • Sarah Wayne Callies (Lori)
  • Scott Wilson (Hershel)
  • Chandler Riggs (Carl)
  • Greg Nicotero (effects/director/producer)
And on top of that John Carpenter will be there.

Hello all. I don't post much, but I wanted to share this video I made. It's a Walking Dead parody video made with World of Warcraft. You'll still get most of the jokes even if you don't play WoW. Thanks for watching!

Anyone planning to see Warm Bodies to hold them over until the show returns? The movie seems geared to teenagers, but it does have zombies and I'm tempted.

Oh I dont know irishmaple, Im so damn picky when it comes to #1 comedy and #2 zombies, Warm Bodies doesn't look like it's going to be my cup of tea. I LOVED Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland! I HATED Fido so bad I didnt even finish watching it. I was fine with Bub from Day of the Dead, Bub made sense however, the idea of zombies having romantic feelings and those feelings being reciprocated by a LIVING PERSON (does the living person have no sense of smell???) just grosses me right the eff out. If you do go, give us a little review eh?

Bumping the thread to mention the MOOC (massive open online course) based on TWD being offered by the University of California at Irvine. I posted about this before, and Doom asked me to create a thread for it, but I have been advised that this was the appropriate place for light discussion of course activities.

I signed up for the UC Irivne class the day it was announced. I am ridiculously excited to participate in it.

Video of course faculty talking to three members of The Walking Dead cast.  
 
Here are the discussion questions for the first module.  
 
1.  In Maslow’s hierarchy, we learn that self-actualization is at the highest level of needs. Do you think any of the characters on The Walking Dead were self-actualized before the apocalypse? Do you think any of the characters would eventually reach self-actualization were circumstances to allow for it? Why or why not? Give examples.
 
2.  Relationships play a key role in how we move up and down levels in Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. A good example of this is the relationship between Glenn and Maggie. Trace how Glenn and Maggie’s relationship has moved up the levels. How do you think these two might move up to the highest level?  
 
3.  Where would be the best place to go if you want to avoid walkers in a world infested with the walking dead?  (According to one of the readings, the answer is a mall.)
