I like that the show if finally getting back on the right track. I just hope they don't do that thing where they take two pages of the comic book and stretch them into half of a season like they did on Season 2.
Oh, and they better follow the comic book with Lori's story line. That would make me very happy.

At least we don't have to deal with Carl wandering off and endangering everyone now that he's a silenced pistol wielding zombie shooting machine

So the whole bite thing: was discussing this with a friend this morning and the amputation seems to throw into doubt the whole "bite=automatic zombie" theory. When you think about it, the only person we've seen get bit without being killed by trauma was Jim, and that was in the stomach/chest. So two theories on this: either it's like a B western snake bite where the zombie venom can be stopped by hacking off a limb OR the bite itself doesn't kill you--but the would gets infected and you die from that. They must have filthy mouths. This is like a Komodo dragon, whose mouth is filled with bacteria that almost always causes sepsis and infection.

The thing that frustrates me is the complete lack of strategy. Examples: When they wanted to take over the prison yard and were safely between the two perimeter gates, and after they had the yard and wanted to take the prison, in both situation why didn't the just lure the zombies over and poke em in the eyes. And if they are going to shoot zombies why don't they shoot all the zombies they can from safety before sending in Grimes or the others. Well, lets just say I think I'd mak it a little longer than these idiots but that doesn't mean it's not fun to watch.

Also, @4, if the bite somehow exposes you to zombie venom, they why do they go around hacking zombies without something over their faces. Seems like some of that splatter would end up in your mouth or eyes. Gross.

Season 2 was tedious, let's see what this one has in store.

I really like this show. I don't care about minute details or everyone's nitpicking complaints. It's based on a comic book! It's about ZOMBIES! I laugh every time someone complains about how it's not realistic. Seriously?!

The idea is that they are infected already. So, in theory no matter how you die (natural causes, infection, blood loss, etc) you will come back as a zombie until someone shoots your brains out.

I'm guessing if someone gets bit and the wound is infected (I can imagine that a zombie mouth/teeth are not clean) you get a fever and worse that isn't curable. The bite/scratch could be some sort of way of activating the infection that is already present in the body. If that's the case then they should also be worried about swallowing some of that blood splatter from all that brain bashing they do.

Anyway, I'm not worried about the science of it. I just watch it for the zombies.

Seems like they took a big risk by going in and combatting the zombies face-to-face when impaling them through the fence was so effective.

I gave up on Walking Dead in Season 2. I just don't care anymore. This is my impression of season 2: "BORING. BORING. STUPID CHOICES, BORING. *YAWN* Oh, is that a zombie?! No, just a rehashing of the same fight bitch wife and sherrif have been having for 294 episodes."
