Trivia:
Although the zombies' breath was CGI'd out of final cut, it was unnecessary. According to Jenner at the CDC, the brainstem is active - the brainstem contains cranial nerves that control autonomic functions like heartrate and respiration. Zombies can produce noises with their vocal folds, which requires some sort of steady airflow coming from the lungs.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: When Rick, Carl and Hershel wait for the lone Walker to pass after escaping the farm, there is no rear window in their car. But, after regrouping with the other survivors, there is a rear window.See more »
Quotes:
Hershel Greene:You can go if you want.
Daryl Dixon:You gonna take 'em all on?
Hershel Greene:We have guns. We have cars.
Andrea:Kill as many as we can, and we'll use the cars to lead the rest of them off the farm.
Daryl Dixon:Are you serious?
Hershel Greene:This is my farm. I'll die here.
Daryl Dixon:All right. It's as good a night as any.

Jump the Shark Anyone?, 6 May 2014
Author: arfdawg-1 from United States

For me, this is about where the show jumped the shark.

Firstly it's revealed that they are "all" infected and that causes a tizzy!!

Why? It's doesn't make a bit of difference if they know that or not. Not one shred of difference.

They all see that once bitten the dead always rise, so this bit of knowledge does nothing and you have to wonder why it is even mentioned. The CDC should have said something else to him.

Next, the show becomes fragmented after this episode. Too many story lines too many characters to be following. It might work a little better if your marathon watching but when they skip so many months between seasons it doesn't.

And finally, they start to get way too dramatic introducing new characters -- uh the hooded one ???

Come on.

The show was so well written in the beginning. Things really took a wrong turn with the series after this episode.
