The Walking Dead Season 2 - grrrr's
Is it just me or do the "veteran" zombie killers from season 1 seem to be getting dumberer and dumberer!
we seem to have established these zombies are attracted to sounds and the sight of humans, not smell or the blood or anything else. so when the rambling horde approach them on a blocked highway, they hide under cars....because zombies NEVER fall over and might see them.
why not, instead, get in the hundreds of cars littered about and just sit there motionless with the windows up?
secondly, the deputy sheriff (can't remember his name atm) is so keen to go it alone, yet when going to get medical supplies he throws a couple of flares to distract zombies, then nips into a portable building. he then looks amazed when opening the door 5 mins later, striding out and being faced with said zombies back stumbling around.
what was he expecting them to do after the flares died out? did he not have a plan for what they would do AFTER they opened the door? no, it appears instead he would run the opposite direction to their escape route, he wouldn't fire a gun despite hundreds of zombies already knowing he is there, and would then trap himself in another area.
again, why not just crack the door open a bit, fire off a few more flares and then make a run for it....still a chance of being seen but much less than busting out like duke nukem then running around in circles!
yes, i know its tv and its meant to be situations like that to increase tension etc. but he is portrayed as the one who kept the camp running while they all thought the sheriff was dead, yet displays no idea of a plan when going into a heavily zombified (yes, its a word!!!!) area.
the only one showing any consistency in his actions is the redneck brother. he only fights with silent weapons, he doesn't mess about and he acts rather than whimpering about.
