Producer Glenn Mazzara was on Talking Dead tonight and indicated the prison was designed by Production Designer Grace Walker. He did not get into the specifics of the construction, but I believe everything you saw was built for the show.The prison is fantastic. I wonder if they found an existing one to use, or if that's all built by the construction team. A really massive sense of scope.
Yes. Absolutely. I would have preferred if he had just not seen it (maybe a partial body on the ground) in the shadows and stepped on it or walked over it. But, this clearly was a "dormant" zombie "playing dead" until it jumped into action. Unless zombies now take naps...it was a cheat.Walter Kittel said:Upon further reflection, the "ankle biter" zombie that attacked Hershel feels like a cheat. Hasn't it always been 'scripture' that walkers are attracted to human scent and would immediately stir into action in the presence of a human. I don't think we have ever seen a zombie "napping" or using stealth to attack a victim. It felt wrong when I watched the episode and it still feels that way.
I suppose one could argue that the first rule of the zombie apocalypse is to never assume a corpse is dormant, but still it feels at odds with every other attack presented on the show.
No. We've seen seemingly dormant zombies before.Hasn't it always been 'scripture' that walkers are attracted to human scent and would immediately stir into action in the presence of a human. I don't think we have ever seen a zombie "napping" or using stealth to attack a victim.
I did love the strategy of just banging on the gate and waiting for them to come and then just offing them one by one. You think you could do that, rinse the hallway, repeat, over and over again to reduce population with less riskOriginally Posted by Joe_H /t/324448/walking-dead-season-3#post_3989209
I enjoyed the episode a lot more than most of last season... but seriously, who would bring your only doctor onto a mission as dangerous as clearing out a dark prison?
Hey... if Dinky Di dog food was good enough for Mad Max.....just sayin'Dave Scarpa said:The season opener impressed me because for the first time since the pilot you can feel thre "Apocalypse" ,starvation, being forced to eat Dog food, now that's more like it.
