. Are the zombies in 'Walking Dead' slow or fast? Does the first series show how it got started?
They're mostly slow...but they're everywhere and when they come its at least a battalion.
The series has flashbacks in the early episodes and the first season has an origin type story for many characters. But I guess you're actually referring to patient zero. Well that's in the companion series 'Fear of the Walking Dead' which is only showing now and which I haven't been watching. I want a good number of episodes to build up before I jump in. In the Walking Dead series by the end of the first/beginning of the second season is where you get their twist in the tale and that's when you realize how badly mankind is in the doo doo.
Some researchers theorize that we find zombies scary because of the 'uncanny valley' effect - they are almost human, but not quite, which throws us off balance and feels very uncomfortable.
Cool. A new talking point with my neighbor... Oh yes I've seen this... Its like why most animation of human faces don't really work unless you make them more cartoon like (bigger eyes, simplified features etc.). Otherwise they look stiff or just plain off.
but I think my fave zombie flick is Zombieland - so much fun.
Mine too... double tap.
