    Daryl re-collects the crossbow metal bolts after he shoots a zombie and if he's close enough, he just stabs them in the head with a steel cb bolt. I have a crossbow and compound bow. Not for hunting(I don't hunt anymore, I can't kill animals), but just for target shooting, and arrows are usually re-collected, even if someone is hunting usually. I love target shooting with crossbows and compound bows....no noise. And I have hundreds of each type bolts/arrows.

    I'm just surprised more of them aren't using a crossbow or compound bow. They don't make noise and won't attract the zombies.

    I agree about the sherrifs uniform though, always seems to be blood-free and pressed/clean.

    And that's true about Daryl. Last night he collected the bolt he shot.

    He's collected almost all of them. Go back and watch season 1. He shoots the bow and always goes back to pull it out of them, giving them a chance to ick us out with more nasty sounds.

    Good for them! They certainly went all out with promotion. The Walking Dead was on Netflix streaming, Red Box and repeating on AMC. I had never seen a single episode until this past weekend and now I am totally on board. Their campaign clearly worked.

    This atheist wanted the deer moment to be a sign where God's sign is that "there is still beauty in this world". A moment to inspire the men to be strong and keep going. And then the kid gets shot in the chest...

    This makes sense. They need to keep whatever will keep them safe. Daryl redeemed himself to me a bit in this episode. I wanted the Sherriff to tell Daryl that he was glad they were with him (mainly to encourage him to be his helpful self rather than his a**hat self!)

    By the way, what did people think of the "Talking Dead" aftershow? I set the DVR wrong, so only caught the last five minutes. Thought it was a letdown, with the two guests talking over top of the host...
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    Oh, one other problem I have! How easily can one catch this zombie virus? I ask because they hack up these zombies and blood gets everywhere. If it landed on an open wound or got in their eye, would they catch it? If you can get it from a scratch or a bite then it sounds like it is very easy to catch, easier than HIV, for example. I just find it odd that they would want to cut open a zombie and dig around in its body even if they did have some gloves on. They got blood on them, for sure.

    I would think it's zombie blood to open wound transmission and possibly eye contact. They never really got into the transmission process other than bites or scratches that I know of. Last season, the sherrif did mention not to get it on their skin when they rubbed the zombie guts on their clothes. But since then, I've seen it on their skin many times.


    Also, I thought there was a "shark suit" that can't be bitten through. I'd be looking into those real quick. It would be like zombie armour.

    ETA: Found info on the shark suit. Just in case anyone wants to add it to their zombie apocalypse survival gear.

    Shark suit! Good idea!

    We also know the zombies smell the living so perhaps just wearing a full on body suit would be enough? Something like this but thicker? lol

    Everything about the show is fantastic....from the writing, to the acting, to the special effects. You get movie quality work in a TV show every episode and you can't say that about every show out there. The zombie genre is a little overdone but this show stands out among them, there's so much more of a human element in it.

    My friend Meghan put it best after her BF and her started watching Season 1. She said "I had to stop watching it, I was getting really uneasy". Yup, that's the point! What they're trying to convey, worked.

    Alone with finding a larger, safer community, the sub-plots include:

    - the sherriff, his best friend and the sherriff's wife who are (sort of?) in a (complicated) love triangle

    - crazy Daryl's crazy brother is somewhere out there after being abandoned by the group, who will probably seek revenge at some point

    - the group are somewhat on eggshells in regards to Andrea, who wanted to die in the season one finale, but was manipulated by Dale, who she is now at odds with

    But to me, it's all about the adventure of trying to find someplace that they all could consider "home".
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    I am ready. I'm stocking up on supplies. I also watched a show on discovery about zombies vs. vampires and am up on all the approprate ways to splatter them across a wall.
    Those who never succeed themselves are always the first to tell you how.
