It seems to have aspects of both and it's like they have not completely decided which way they are going yet.


The Zombies... Some are fast some are slow. Did they say that fresh turns are fast, and older undead are slow due to decomp? Episode 1 ragers, Episode 2 shamblers... Now i have to watch both to see if both types were in them...

Do I really have to watch them again? :?

Okay... I guess i have to do it... be right back. <sigh>

Okay re-watched them. This is what I got.
Episode 1 - Trading Scene - After Zombie Red and his brothers charge from the trees.
Doc says, "The way that big one moved, he must have turned just a few hours ago."

So they infer that fresh turns are fast and speed decreases over time.

Oh, the opening scene takes place in Kittery, Maine (Portsmouth Naval Prison) 02 AZ.

If that's the case, then three years into the ZPAW one would think that all zombies would be slow. Yet in episode three there's a mix of slow and fast. How can there be that many fresh kills three years into the apocalypse? I'm watching it now simply for the sheer campiness of the show. I don't know if that's what the producers were going for, but the succeeded anyway.

We should put together a timeline and event list based on time.
Add to it...

Day 1 - Patient 0

Yeah, I could only explain the zombie speed as an as-needed-basis. I have already resigned my mindset to go full campiness so I don't blow a brain gasket while watching.

Well, the time break leaves a lot to be unclear or undetermined. But I am willing to help out on the timeline and call it research or writing exercise.

XX/XX/00 AZ - Day 1: Patient Zero or Unknown Zombie Event
<unknown dates> President is dead, 3 years after initial outbreak all nations have fallen.

05/05/02 AZ - Episode 1: Portsmouth Naval Prison - Infection Control Facility (Kittery, Maine) The virus strain that they are using on the prisoners, causes a near immediate turn.
Black Summer - (Episode 2 reference first summer with out infrastructure?)

XX/XX/03 AZ - Episode 1: current date - Arrive at Camp Blue Sky (Upstate New York)
Attempt to meet reinforcements near Tappan Zee Bridge - LT dies, Garnett agrees to escort Murphy to California. Add Cassie and 10K to group.

Episode 2: Oil/Gas Refinery - Slow zombies introduced Cassie has a secret. Murphy is REALLY scared of zombies (even though immune). :WTF:
Phone call from Citizen Z (Camp Northern Lights) Garnett agrees again to escort Murphy to California.

Episode 3: Pennsylvania - Cannibal Cult, Cassie's secret revealed. Another reference to black summer. Ragers and Shamblers are present.

Did my catching up with the series this morning, the last three episodes.
C'mon Y'all.....
Get your truck stolen, Stolen from the thief, stolen from the next thief, then you get it back.....all on the same road.
Bill Moseley is awesome and doesn't mind goofy roles. But the General? That's all they could come up with?
How the hell could the soldier still be a crack head?
A STONED ZOMBIE?

A FRICKIN ZNADO?

Znado brought to you by the same folks who brought you Sharknado which I have not seen nor do I intend to watch.
Overall I think the show is ok in a goofy sort of way.
I would like to see them settle down some.
I find 10K more annoying than what's his name that survived the bites and he is pretty damn annoying.

He could be a good character but you gotta drop the Rambo stuff first. Znado and the stoned zed are still bugging me, but I still watch.
