So... is this exactly like 28 Days Later... or is it exactly like 28 Days Later? At least the 28 Days Later zombies were scary in the sense that they were fast, rabid monsters. The shot of this guy calmly riding on a horse into a giant horde of slow-moving zombies seems almost comical.

Badger necroed a 13-month-dead topic. Insert pun about "The Walking Dead" here.

Saw the first episode where they're on the highway...

Did they retcon the bit about how zombies can smell humans? I thought there was that whole episode where the Asian dude had to cover himself in zombie blood to avoid detection. Then when it started to rain and the blood washed off they could sense him. They were just hiding under cars in this episode, no blood or anything.

Or does that rule only work if the zombie can see you? <_<

The zombies clearly came from the Nintendo 64. After all, Mario could breathe through his shoes, so why not other forms of extreme synesthesia?

Okay, I'll be going now.

I think the smelling was retconned Pat. Because even if they smelled with their eyes, it took the first episode zombie a while to figure out he was human.

I don't like retcons like that. It really turned me off from the show.

I don't think it was a retcon, I think it's more that zombies can smell other zombies.  Remember, Glen covered himself in zombie guts to walk out in the streets with the zombies, in plain sight of them.  He wasn't using it to hide.  We also know that zombies aren't picky eaters, they'll eat a horse just as willingly as a human, even though there's a pretty big difference in smell.

So zombies don't identify targets by smell, they identify non-targets.  They are universally attracted to motion and noise, even from other zombies (why they travel in hordes), but won't attack if it smells like one of them.

Makes perfect sense.
Nefarious?  Nearly.  Ne’er-do-well?  Never!  Neither nearly names this narrator.  Naive and knowledgeable, notorious and inscrutable, this nascent Nero is known naturally as Neoadept.

This has only just started showing in Australia on a brand new FX channel. 2 episodes in I like it. My fiance hates it because the horse was eaten.

You can try Renting form Amazon. On $2 per ep. is not to bad. Not sure if it will work for you in upside-down land?
