Depth and background are always good... I mean, you don't want to drag things out for your readers too awful much, right? But you do want to know what's gone on before so you have some sort of "reference point" or "empathy" for the characters.

I go on "free writing" binges, at times, where I just scribble down everything that comes to mind where a particular character or scene or circumstance is concerned and come up with some of the most menial, inconsequential, trivial, and tedious details that you could possibly imagine... Not even half of that kind of stuff ever makes it into anything that "my readers" might see but it's there if needed and can be worked into the tale somewhere along the line if necessary.

Speaking of free-writing...

Subject: Yeah...


...I seriously doubt the whole "cure is to be found in one of the survivors" theory. Entirely too convenient and improbable all around... As mentioned before, Jenner didn't have the time to analyze the samples to that extent for one thing and, also, gave Rick the "no surprises" response when our hero asked about them.

That same "no surprises" line makes me wonder, though... Would Lori possibly being pregnant be a surprise in Dr Jenner's analysis or, rather, would it be something that he wasn't expecting but wasn't really surprised to find? Hmmmm.....

...but the more I think about it, the more I'm willing to bet it had something to do with the blood samples that Jenner took after he let them in... What do you think?

Topic: AMC's The Walking Dead
Subject: GREAT finale...


...even if I, too, was expecting/hoping for a two hour episode (or, at least, an hour and a half... c'mon!!!).

Anyhoo... loved the flashback bit at the opening of the episode. Things were most certainly a mess when Shane last saw Rick in the hospital, huh? Gives you a little empathy for the character where that little bit is concerned, I suppose, and almost made me even like him a little more... buuuut... the later 'follow-up' scene with Lori just reaffirmed the whole "Shane's a nozzle" thing for me and I just can't wait for Shane to get his!

Andrea electing to stay behind at the end surprised me at first (not too much considering the build up they gave her state of mind since the whole Amy thing) but the bit with Dale made it all make sense and, in the end, I thought it was fantabulous.

Also loved Rick pulling the pin on that grenade, setting it down, looking at it for a second and then going "Oh S#!^..."

Speaking of a "Duh" moment.

Come on, Season 2!!!!

From the look of the previews, though, there's gonna be some heavy-duty goings on in the season finale... wanna make bets on who in the cast doesn't make it out of the CDC still suckin' air?

Also... I'm right there with you Meri... couldn't decide exactly what those samples were... kind of looked like brain tissue at one point but, at other times, not so much. I think that's the bit I'm most curious about when it comes to next week's romp... What all is Mr CDC gonna reveal?

AMC orders up 13 episodes for season 2!!!

That's the good news...


... the possible bad news? Producer Frank Darabont fires the entire writing staff and is looking at possibly using freelancers... ... Not a super horrible proposition, I suppose, considering that Darabont wrote the first two episodes, and did re-writes on the other 4 but... damn... the WHOLE staff?

The really bad news? Season 2 won't start until around next Halloween?!?!? W...T...F?!?!?!?

Subject: But the problem...


...with the samples, Pit, is that the ones that Mr CDC obliterated is that apparently, they weren't gathered from Walkers... Remember him saying that all the newer samples were useless because they came from "necrotic dead flesh"? Kind of leads me to believe that the samples he was testing/experimenting with didn't come from a zombie at all but, rather, from some pre-zombification subject. (All kinds of implications in that one little statement, I suppose, but I kind of translated as "samples from the dead" aren't going to suffice and/or weren't the sort of samples he was working on in his little "Oh, crap!" scene...)

Topic: AMC's The Walking Dead
Subject: Turn time...


From what I recall reading in the trades (and I think it may have been alluded to in the series once or twice, as well), Kirkman has this idea that the time it takes to turn in an individual thing. Some folks have turned in a matter of hours while others literally took days to completely "geek-out".

Jim and Amy are perfect example in this episode, actually... both were bitten within minutes of each other, right? Amy got major-munched as she came out of the RV, Jim got a little "what's this guy taste like" bite during the melee. However, Amy took just a few, sad hours to "come back from death" whereas Jim was still un-zombiefied (but obviously closing in fast) near the end of the episode. Not sure exactly what the variables might be in determining the speed at which one person might turn as compared to another (Does it happen faster when you've been bitten to death as opposed to just getting a little nibble? Perhaps, if you live through the initial bite, the immune system has something to do with slowing the progress... thus, if the initial bite(s) kill you and, thereby, stops your immune system from functioning, maybe it's easier for the virus (or whatever) to take hold? *shrugs*)

Well, you remember what happened in the trades when Amy got bitten and such, right? And how quickly Andrea "did what needed to be done"?

It was a pretty hardcore thing for her to do in the comics, for sure, and, all things considered, she did it pretty quickly on the printed page... Not so on screen... she reflected... and waited... and did what she needed to do...

...and it was Amy's birthday!!!

Subject: Very cool imagery, indeed...


...one of the best panels in the graphic novels, IMO, and they captured it so well in the series, too...

As for some of my non-spoiler thoughts on this week's episode:

  • As heartbreaking as the Andrea/Amy thing was in the trades, it's soooo much more beyond that in this episode... Thought I might actually cry.

  • Wow, Carol! Let it out sister!

  • Shane, you douchenozzle!!!

  • Poor, poor, uber-crazy Jim.

  • Daryl's hilarious!!!

  • CDC?!?! Wildfire? What? I must not have read that one... Ooooh... is this a little insight into what started this whole mess? Hmmmmm...



Can't wait for next week!!! I gotta know what happens!

Subject: Understood...


...and, as I said, I'm not at all opposed to the possibility. Heck, the little write up you gave us made it sound like just the kind of place that Sam might feel at least a little at ease (as much as he can ever feel at ease, anyway) on a stop over... It's not like it's an Alliance Cruiser or the skyplex that Phoenix operates from, right?


Also, since I missed replying the "how familiar is your character with Reavers" question: I'd say "not very" where Sam is concerned... rumors and legends for the most part... perhaps a "derelict ship" sighting here or there but nothing up close and personal or anything..

Topic: Voyages of the Rocinante - Firefly RPG QnA
Subject: Hmmm...


...I dunno.

I never really pictured the Rocinante crew as having any sort of "home base" aside from Rocinante herself, to be honest... I mean, I'm sure that they all have their "ports in a storm" and whatnot (individually and collectively) but, from Sam's perspective, I never imagined anything like a home base kind of thing... I think that any place where Sam could "be expected" on a regular or semi-predictable basis would just make him waaaaaaay too twitchy to be comfortable with the thoughts of it.

Not that I'm opposed, at all... I just don't think that Sam would be inclined to "settle" on any one place to "hang his hat" so to speak... he's much more content being on the move and never staying too awful long anywhere there's more than Wyatt and the crew. Could provide some interesting twists and turns, though, I reckon.

Subject: LOL


My "conspiracy theory" was really little more than me being facetious and over the top, really... I seriously doubt that Merle had anything at all to do with the zombie attack on the camp... more than likely those zombies simply wandered closer and closer to the camp with each passing day (possibly drawn in by the sounds and such made by the survivors, etc) and, by sheer coincidence, attacked while Rick and company had gone back to Atlanta. *shrugs*

As to the "gangsters" minding the Old People, it's really not too much of a stretch... "Gangs" are often created to give their members a "family" more than put together for some group need to be criminals, after all (the criminal behavior undertaken by gangs is often validated, at least from their perspective, by some sense of 'taking care of our own')... So, when the "authorities" (people who are paid to protect and serve or whatever) ignored their own duties in deference to "looking out for number 1" and flat-out abandoned the old folks, Guillermo and his crew moved in and took over where "the system" failed them yet again. Don't know if you missed it or not, but the little old lady who "interrupted the negotiations between Rick and Guillermo" was G's grandmother, hence his interest and dedication in taking care of a hospital full of old people.

Glenn was taken hostage as a bargaining chip to be used in G and the vatos "negotiations" for Rick's bag of guns and/or the return of their own captured "homey"...

...and that's about where my conspiracy theory train of thought runs off the tracks.

I mean, supposedly Merle took out those two "geeks" that Rick, Daryl, Glenn, and T-dawg found after he hacked his hand off... bad@$$ enough, right there... shows that Merle's definitely tough as nails and hardcore even losing blood and minus an entire hand... Is he bad enough, though, or smart enough for that matter, to have rustled a pack of zombies into a van, drive them out to the camp, and turn them loose on the others? Without getting munched himself? *shrugs*

Probably not the case at all, really, just one of those 'thoughts' I had as the episode unfolded/wrapped up... I like to instigate.

...The conspiracy theorist in me thinks that Merle, somehow, rounded up a bunch of zombies, loaded them into the van, drove them out to the camp and turned them loose.

Sure, there had been a flesh muncher or two near the camp before but that many? All of the sudden? C'mon... they couldn't have done anything to have drawn that horde in, could they have? Not without it having been seen by Rick and crew as they made their way back to Atlanta, right? And it's not like in the trades where the 'camp invasion' was precipitated by Rick and Shane teaching the rest of the survivors to shoot (cuz, hey... hasn't happened in the series and Rick doesn't even have the guns back to camp... *shrugs* )...

Makes one wonder....

And why no helicopter after Ep 2?



The plot thickens...
