For Season 3, the make up team used darker skin tones for the Walkers to show further decay as time had progressed. See more »


The zombies' organs still work, as shown when Rick and Daryl cut open the walker looking for Sophia. Blood would need to be pumping through the veins in order for this to happen. Blood pumping would not allow the zombies to decay. See more »


Rick Grimes: So this is where you plan to do it?
Shane Walsh: As good a place as any.
Rick Grimes: At least have the balls to call this what it is: murder. You really believe if you walk back onto that farm alone, no me, no Randall...
Shane Walsh: Why don't you hush up?
Rick Grimes: You really believe they're gonna buy whatever bullshit story you cook up?

Come on zombies!
23 October 2010 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

The best contemporary zombie thing ever! Enough Resident Evil's like movies with big monsters, hybrid DNAs, lots of crazy acrobatics maneuvers, unlimited ammo, and no "reality", no suspense, no characters, no classic zombies… If you are into some zombie culture with classic roots like George Romero's movies Night of The Living Dead, The Crazies, Dawn of The Dead… or something new like 28 Days Later, I Am Legend… Then you are going to love it.

Finally me fighting zombies day-by-day on my couch… Since Lost I had nothing but comedy series to watch; now finally I have some series to take my TV time for suspense and action…
