^^ That's really cool. I wonder where in town they'll be filming? Usually these shows take place out in the country somewhere. I'll keep my eye out and if they need a zombie wearing elbow patches and a pocket protector, I'll volunteer.

That would be great. Maybe they'll even film at the University. It would be funny to see Zombie students shuffling mindlessly through the halls. :lol:

And... new episode tonight! :zombie:

Oh my gosh, that would be amazing if they filmed on our campus. We do have a gorgeous campus -- about 20 years ago they taped a TV series here; I forget what it was.

I wonder who will die in tonight's episode? :rip:

Not that Dawson's Creek is going to die, that it was filmed at the University of Richmond.

Yes, now I remember. I watched them taping that show just outside my office. It was 80 degrees outside but all the actors were wearing winter coats because the show took place in winter. That had to be uncomfortable.

^^ Acting is not as glamorous as it looks.

Well, that was an action-packed episode. "We need to get rid of that dead weight." :lol:

And everybody survived. I thought for sure that Wheelchair Guy was a goner, but he really came through with a heroic effort to get those lights back online. And it was Salazar, of all people, who supplied the lights. He seems to have exorcised his demons. I wonder if he's back on the regular cast list now.

And those weren't the only twists. Dorie and Dwight made it to the plane in the nick of time, and Dorie has proposed to June. I guess now they'll have to go back to Alexandria, because Father Gabriel is the only living priest that we know about in the ZA. And besides that, Max Headroom has shown up looking for shelter, since his tough guy friends have apparently turned on him.

Alicia got to take a shower, and Karen Grace thinks she'll be okay, but Alicia's not so sure. Maybe she needs to take more showers. And what about Karen herself? She seems to think she's doomed, but she's showing no obvious signs of radiation sickness. And what about Morgan, who seems to have had some exposure himself? And what the hell was that business with the stick? He gets it back only to have Karen snap it in two? How is that fixing it? Was only half of it radioactive? Poor Morgan. He looked so sad without his stick, and now he looks even sadder with his little dinky half a stick. :(

And back on the other side of the mountains, the nuclear plant has melted down, so we can presume that the area is flooded with radiation-- any other survivors in the area area dead meat, and I wonder if that means Dwight's wife. If so, it would be kind of anticlimactic.

That was a good line indeed :lol:

Yeah, I thought he was dead meat. Literally. That was a pretty smooth landing, all things considered.
And what the hell was that business with the stick?
That was weird. The stick gets stepped on, and Morgan appears to be trying to make the shorter version work. Why not just find another mop?

Also, did you hear John and Dwight discuss the gasoline in the car going bad? Is this the first acknowledgement that gas actually goes bad over time?

That stick has sentimental value. I thought for sure he'd get it back eventually.

Yeah, not only did they discuss it, but it seems that it will be a plot point with Max Headroom's ex-cronies. My thinking was that the Zombie Virus was keeping things like gasoline and rubber from deteriorating as quickly as they normally would.

I liked your idea that the entire apocalypse was a military medical experiment gone awry, and that it affected not just living tissue but also gas and electronic equipment.

So gas should have gone bad years earlier. Many years earlier, assuming the apocalypse happened 8 or 9 years ago. Plus, by now all the canned goods that they seem to keep finding should have long since run out.

Right, I forgot to mention the food. All the canned goods and the stuff they find in vending machines and so forth-- the Zombie Virus is keeping all that fresh, too. :lol:

Ahhh, right :lol: In a real apocalypse, there would be near-starvation. Survivors should be gaunt. I guess none of the actors are willing to lose a ton of weight, as it would be unhealthy.

But I wonder with CGI they can use camera tricks to make characters look painfully thin....

Not until October. This is only the mid-season break for Fear. It will be back with eight more episodes in August.

The first one is supposed to begin shooting this year, but nothing more specific than that. It's supposed to be a theatrical release.

That'll be cool. I hope they do a good job with it. I wonder who the supporting characters will be....

Well, this was a very good episode, done completely in documentary style. Like other shows and films done as a documentary or found-film compilation, it stretches credulity that the events would be caught so thoroughly on film, but it was a nice way to get into everyone's head at this juncture. And it's nice to see that everyone is on board with the Samaritan scenario. "If everybody helps, then we can help everybody." A timely and important message that probably explains why the ratings are so low.

Of course, not everybody outside the group is so altruistic. Max Headroom seems to have gotten back together with his old friends and he's not very kind to strangers. It looks like Motorcycle Guy wasn't sold on the pitch, but now he may have no choice but to hook up with the gang. I wonder how that will work out-- assuming they arrive in time to save his pedestrian butt.

Yep, good episode and so cool to see that everyone's on board with their mission of altruism.

The mine-field scenario was done very well. I'm glad that woman finally came out of her house to help Morgan. How did she have enough food and water to last so many years?

And yes, Max Headroom wants to spoil the Samaritan party. I guess we always need a villain for our heroes to overcome or else we don't have much of a story.
