About the latest episode, "TS-19": so the group's arrival at the CDC was a red herring at best, or just a worthless plot point at worst. I really thought that Jenner would tell the group that he needed tissue samples from a human that was recently turned zombie, and they would go back for Jim, the guy that was bitten and left behind at his own request.
This would made for a great episode- they would have had to deal with seeing one of their own as a walker, one they had only just left to "die", esp. shocking for Andrea. But they just blew up the CDC and that one lady, and moved on. I'm not sure what this episode accomplished, maybe I need to watch it again.
I'm concerned that this show is going to suffer from what happened to Lost- a great premise, strong out of the gate, but eventually mired in dead-end subplots and issues left unresolved. Still a great show now, though, looking forward to more.
Oh my gosh, I so agree!!
I for one am really no fan of zombie stories that feel the need to explain how the infection came to pass, part of what made the comics so great is they didn't seem to dwell on the hows, rather the what the hell are we going to do to survive now? Granted, I've only managed to get up to about issue 50 in the comics >_<
I'm kinda hoping the next season will get back to the comic lines, obviously there would be things they might not be able to do for sheer size and cost, but really, the CDC thing was just a waste of space.
But I was hoping that when they reached the CDC they'd go otu and collect samples, and maybe spend a few weeks there, I was thinking they'd treat teh CDC as they treated the jail
in the comics.
