Having been allowed into the CDC building, the survivors meet Dr. Edwin Jenner who appears to be the only survivor in the facility. There is plenty of food and drink and the surroundings are comfortable. A drunken Shane tries to reconcile with Lori Grimes, but she will have nothing to do with it. Dr. Jenner shows them how the infection works to reanimate a dead corpse but admits that he hasn't been able to make any advance on defeating it. Despair sets in at the realization that there is no cure for the plague that has enveloped them. Jenner has his own plans for the future leaving the survivors only a few minutes to leave the facility. Not everyone chooses to leave however. Written by garykmcd

Drama without Walkers
9 October 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dr. Edwin Jenner receives Rick and the survivors in the facility and requests a blood examination of each person to prove that they are not contaminated. They have a dream night with hot water for the bath, air conditioning and dinner with Italian and French wine.

In the morning, Dr. Jenner shows a film of the "zombiefication" process with a sequence of scanned images of a brain of a contaminated subject that dies and has the body reanimated by the infection. When Dale asks the meaning of a clock countdown in the laboratory, Dr. Jenner explains that the facility is running out fuel and a shutdown process with subsequent self-destruction has initiated and they are all trapped in the building and doomed to die.

"TS-19" is the last episode of the short First Season of "Walking Dead". After a promising and full of action beginning, the series has switched to personal dramas (Shane, Andrea, Lori, Jim and others) with good characters development. The stories are good, but I hope that in the Second Season, the plot returns to what fans of zombies' film expect to see, with lots of walkers and gore. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "TS-19" (1.6)

Note: On 08 April 2016, I saw this show again.
