Trivia

In a February 2015 Entertainment Weekly interview, Sonequa Martin-Green (Sasha) said that she was in her third trimester of pregnancy with her first child during most of the filming for season 4. She explained the costuming and filming tactics used to hide her pregnancy: "For the longest time, just the layers that I'm wearing would hide the whole thing. And my gun is really big, so that helps too. So it's been okay, and now at this point it's about just doing good right angles and not turning to a full profile. As long as I'm face-on, there's a trick of the camera-you can't quite see it." See more »

Goofs

Throughout the last few seasons, there have been references to Eugene being able to make "bullets" in a machine shop he found. That's an incorrect reference to what is actually a "cartridge". A cartridge is actually the assembly of 4 components: a brass casing, a lead bullet (typically encased in copper), gun powder, and a primer. Although you could argue that a lead bullet could be cast with the correct bullet mold, there has been no mention of them having one for the assortment of calibers used in the show. A machine shop is no use for casting bullets - sufficient raw lead to melt in a furnace and suitable molds are what's needed. Machining casings would be incredibly difficult in a normal machine shop, if not impossible. There is also no mention of obtaining the copious amounts of gunpowder and primers that would be necessary for constructing workable cartridges. Hand forming actual bullets would be tedious, time consuming, and produce highly inaccurate cartridges that wouldn't be effective beyond 25 yards. There is no way that primers could be constructed without highly specialized machinery, raw materials, and the correct flash powder which isn't even sold in gun shops. See more »

Quotes

Rick Grimes: [fed up with everyone questioning his leadership] Maybe you people are better off without me. Go ahead. I say there's a place for us, but maybe it's just another pipe dream. Maybe I'm fooling myself again. Why don't you go find out yourself? Send me a postcard! Go on, there's the door. You can do better, let's see how far you get.
[no one moves or says anything]
Rick Grimes: No takers? Fine, but get one thing straight. If you're staying, this isn't a democracy anymore.

One of my favorite series
28 April 2019 | by FrenchEddieFelsonSee all my reviews

This series is strongly inspired by the comics created by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore, in the early 2000s. I read the first 25 volumes. I loved them! As in the comics, the series centers on the character of Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), Sheriff's deputy in a county of Georgia, who wakes up from a coma of several weeks to discover that the population has been ravaged by a post-apocalyptic epidemic that turns human beings into zombies called walkers. Behind a 'humans versus zombies' appearance, the series essentially deals with human relationships, with a very wide spectrum of personalities. There are a few empathic and benevolent (wo)men with a collaborative mindset. There are also a few psychopaths hidden here or there. The series starts excellently with two first seasons rather well designed and well interpreted. Quality is right there! The third season is disappointing with sometimes laughable dialogues and moronic plot twists. Seasons 4, 5 and 6 get timidly back on one's feet. And season 7, with Negan and tutti quanti, is relatively mediocre despite a thunderous (and gore ...) departure. And then? I do not know, I stopped at the very end of the seventh season, after noting that the IMDb ratings of the eighth season were almost scary. More scary than the series itself...

Two friendly advices: 1) You must watch the first two seasons. Absolutely. They are cult. 2) I then invite you to stop, mainly because of a script full of far-fetched plot twists.
