So what did everyone think of this show?
While it was an interesting look at the “start” of the outbreak, I wish it was set earlier. Seems like we went from one zombie to stadiums full of them in 5 minutes.
And where was the TV coverage / internet reports. I know they briefly touched base on this but I think it wasn’t handled right. We’re a 24/7 information society. Between tweets, Facebook, YouTube, 300 news stations on TV I think there would of been more coverage of the initial outbreak. And plenty of talking heads explaining it. The fact that information was so scarce doesn’t really add up.
I don’t understand the National Guard’s role. Were they there to protect the civilians? If so they did a pretty shitty job of it. What was the purpose of all the people locked in cages? At that point they were already aware that bites would turn people. Was it to separate those at “risk” of just dying? (ie. the heroin boy “overdosing” and dying?) so they wouldn’t infect lesser risk people?
Finally, I didn’t like how they let all those zombies loose to get access to the National Guard base. They essentially became murderers at that point, knowing full well the zombies would take the base and possibly the town (their neighbors).
BTW, the show has the coolest Intro / logo. Reminds me of old 70’s horror flicks.
