We decided to try The Walking Dead last night. Watched the first episode and that was all I could take. Not saying it was bad at all, just way too stressful for me. I was so tense, I couldn't enjoy it.

Watched Don Jon with a friend of mine today. It was VERY honest and rather good I think, although it's not a movie I'd pick to watch on a rainy Saturday afternoon when I've got nothing to do.
Listen.

The more zombie films you watch, the better you get at spotting potential SZEs (single zombie events, such as when you're walking in the woods) and MZEs (multiple zombie events, you're in a hospital or other public building). Of course, in post-apocalyptic films, you don't get the benefit of "It's just a cat!" to forewarn you of impending doom :lol:

:lol: Actually, I think it was the post-apocalyptic setting that stressed me out more than the zombies.

SZEs & MZEs... love it.

Me too! And do you know what always bothers me most? How can a person manage without toilet paper. Post apocalyptic fiction never mentions it.

You'd be amazed what can substitute as toilet paper. :shock: :shock:

I watched the season premiere of The Walking Dead yesterday before work. Good start to the season, I thought. :)

Went to the World Premiere of "The Duel" last night, I highly recommend seeing it if you ever get the chance. The animation will be entered into various festivals so won't be posted online in the near future.

I have wondered about loo paper but I'd take my shirt off and use that if it came to it. What I do often ask especially since I've been watching The Walking Dead is, For the love of god, you will wash your hands before you eat something?! That's to the survivors not the zombies.

I think that's what'd bother me the most, not being able to get some soap & water on the upper extremities. In Zombieland the guy has the hand gel in his pocket. Love it, that'd be me for sure.

What caused the Zombieness in The Walking Dead, anyway. Did we ever find out?

The CDC had the virus isolated, but no news on where it came from. But then the CDC blew up.

It all comes down to how much you care about personal cleaning in difficult circumstances. :?:
