Good one. There's a reason it's called "dead space." Apparently the writers are unfamiliar with Foo gas.

Interestingly, on a long flight very recently I overheard 4 very different people discussing whether Glenn was alive or not. I was 4 episodes behind but I listened in all the same. When a female began complaining about Carl actually being 45 years old and trying to work an 80's Shag and 90's Mullet I laughed so hard that I woke everyone that was sleeping and gave away the fact that I was eavesdropping.

I am caught up now, so I would add that the aerial shots at the end of each episode has been the best part for me. Does anyone know what they are using to film that? The rising camera view catching the swarm tactics inherently known by all people who are no longer people is quite artistic. Having developed an interest in small drones as of late, and being impressed with what I can see, I am curious how they are filming those shots.

The technique has traditionally been referred to as a "crane shot", more recently, a "helicopter shot". But today these kind of camera angles are often being done by - as you guessed - drones. The technology has opened up a whole new world of cinematic opportunities. Here's an example of the creative potential:

Ultimately, the key to this debate is just how combustible are the Walkers?

Obviously their rotted cloths would be great tinder. And we all have seen the juicy ones due to great shot that makes, but I have seen many that were pretty desiccated.

I theorize that, in general, they would burn to the point of immobility within a reasonable amount of time.

Cremation has been practiced for ages, we seem to burn fairly well.

From yahoo answers
"Human flesh requires extended exposure to 1,400 degrees Fahrenheit in order to ignite. The human body, which is 85 percent water, burns outside to inside in a rapid cycle of layer-by-layer dehydration and ignition. The heat dries out the skin; the dry skin ignites. That fire dries out the next layer of muscle and fat, which then ignites. And so on, until the internal organs are consumed. The average body gives off a modest 1,000 Btu per pound of meat (burning wood, by comparison, gives off 6,000 Btu). But an extremely obese person can run up to 17,000 Btu. "

I'm guessing there would have to be an accelerant used unless the walker was really desiccated.

well, with all of America waiting for an answer to the Glenn issue, the show pulls a classic bait and switch. Instead of closure, instead of knowing where the trail drive is going, instead of knowing if the residents at Arlington are ok, we get an hour of absolute bullshit.

It wasn't what I wanted to see exactly but I disagree that it sucked and I didn't think we were going to have it easy. This episode was a part of the entire story - Morgan's story, and his escape from Crazier Than Rick-Town - and it was good that it was told.

As for Morgan's adoption of Eastman's Way, well, it did help bring Morgan out of the Uber Bad Place and made him even more of a survivor. However, while I can see someone following the path that all life is precious and that they will strive to never kill anything again, that's perfectly fine for them. It's when their choice (Morgan's) to not kill directly puts me or mine in danger that our philosophies will part ways. Sorry, Morgan.

But, oatmeal burgers? Is that even possible? Ugh. I think just the oatmeal would have been more palatable.

And Morgan's captive Wolf really needs some dental hygiene tips.

I can appreciate the telling of how Morgan came to be the wus..uh.. lover of all things, that he is now.

But that was just too damn long in the telling. It was like watching a root canal in slow motion.

Hopefully that will be the last of the drawn out back stories they tell.

It probably would not have been so bad if I actually bought into their belief system, but I don't. Throughout the history of mankind there are people who are just damaged.

I don't think their lives are precious and should be saved at all costs.

Personally..... I thought it was an amazing episode one of the best yet.

If you know PTSD it should resonate deeply. much kudos to the makers of this episode.

It honestly disheartens me that people have become so inured with ADD entertainment that it has to all be rockem, sockem, killem, and fuckem or its not "quality" entertainment. One of the many things that truly lead me to believe that we are doomed to failure as a society in modern times of such little true struggle.

Myself...... Found this episode to be horrid. We all know Morgan went through shit, everyone has. Does it deserve an entire episode? Naw...... 15 minute rehash. Gotta say the last episode and this one really are making me not give two shits about this show.

Z nation seems to be getting better, TWD seems to be getting worse.

My biggest thing is how are people still getting ambushed by walkers, how does someone push away and turn his back to a walker within 2 feet? He could have easily dropped the walker without jeopardizing himself. I know I know........TV.

A blind man could have seen that that this week's episode would not be about Glenn.

I honestly believe that this was one of the best episode of the series.

Remember, the episode wasnt all about Morgan. Eastman had quite a bit character development. Too bad they didnt keep him around for several more episodes. He was a likable dude.

My prediction for the wolf leader(?) that Morgan has locked up...He'll be the death of one if not several main characters.

I enjoyed the backstory on Morgans journey. But this episode has me revising my 'what attracts a Walker' list.

Previously I posted the order as:
  1. Noise
  2. Movement
  3. Food
  4. Fire
  5. Smell
But in Sunday's episode we saw Morgan burning bodies and a walker come out of the wood attracted by the fire. Morgan moved toward the walker who immediately switched her attention to him. Movement > Fire.

Then in the same sequence Morgan is violently stabbing a walker in the head near the fire when a Walker come straight thru it catching itself on fire to get to Morgan. Movement > Fire

And Lastly Morgan stealthily come up behind the Walker eating Tabitha the goat and just stands there looking at it. The walker lifts its head and turns to attack Morgan. Smell > Food.

So here's the revised Zombie lore list base on these:
  1. Noise
  2. Movement
  3. Fire
  4. Smell
  5. Food
OATMEAL HAMBURGER RECIPIES!!

OATMEAL PEPPERED HAMBURGERS
2 lb. hamburger or ground round
1 pkg. onion mushroom soup mix
1/4 c. diced or chopped green peppers
1 c. Quaker oatmeal
1/4 c. diced or chopped onions
Pepper & salt, optional
Simply mix all ingredients in large bowl. Patty out to regular size hamburger patties. Grill or cook over medium to low heat, not too high or will burn too fast. Should yield 8 regular to medium hamburgers. Top off with grilled onion buns.

SPEEDY OATMEAL HAMBURGERS
1 c. oatmeal, dry
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sage
1 med. onion
3 eggs
Chop onion fine, add to oats, beat eggs until thick and yellow. Stir oats mixture into eggs quickly and fry in hot oil, just long enough to brown on both sides. Remove at once to a warm plate. When all are fried, replace in pan and cover with a tomato mushroom sauce. Simmer for about 20 minutes to 1/2 hour. Good hot or cold. Alternate sauce is: 1 cup hot water mixed with 1 heaping teaspoon of Vegex, simmer patties until liquid is mostly absorbed. Serves 6. 115 calories per serving.

OATMEAL HAMBURGER
1 c. dry oatmeal
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sage
1 medium onion
3 eggs
Mix oats, salt, and sage in bowl. Chop onion fine and add into oats. Beat eggs until thick and yellow. Stir oat mixture into eggs and fry in oil just long enough to brown lightly on both sides. Put in pan and cover with a tomato/mushroom sauce (or with 1 cup hot water and 1 teaspoon Vegex). Simmer 20 minutes to 1/2 hour.

So in your opinion watching shows about people with a mental disorder so severe that they murder people is 'quality' entertainment? And because others don't, society is doomed?

I was beaten by my father with a pool cue when I was a kid, watched him slap around my mother. No- I don't enjoy watching TV shows about abuse.

I really hope that people's TV preferences doesn't guide your outlook on society.
Really more valid sources for that.

Maybe it was the time change, maybe it was the bourbon and eggnog, but I wanted to fall asleep about halfway into the show, and when I realized it was a 90-minute episode, I felt a bit despondent.

Pal, sorry to hear about you or any child being hurt, or family members. I doubt that this or any TV Show really guides anyone’s outlook; I think he was just making reference. Society as we know it will go down the drain just after its moral code.

I liked this episode simply because it featured a teacher and a student, choices, and a door that is never really locked. When one takes every image or action better left unseen and hides it on a shelf behind a door down a long, dark hallway, and then does this again and again, it might be that there are so many hallways and doors and hidden things that the house becomes fragmented. One way to combat all that darkness is to shine a light upon it.

I would have titled that episode “Teachable.”
I remain so…
