“If she cared even a LITTLE for her kid, she would never let him go beyond 3 feet from her sight. It would be INSTINCTIVE. They would all be scared, for one, and people don’t do cavalier stuff when they are afraid. That is why having a bunch of sheltered, spoiled, never-seen-real-danger Hollywood left-wingers writing for a show like this tends to suck: they have no idea what real people would do in a survival situation because they’ve NEVER SEEN IT.”
My wife is from Mexico City (all legal, a citizen and a registered Republican), so she has street sense. She doesn’t let our kids go ANYWHERE without knowing what they’re doing, who they’re with, etc. She does NOT let them out of her sight when in public places. Hell, she only stopped closing the garage door while still in the car a year or so ago, after years of me abusing her about it. IOW, my wife is AWARE of her surroundings and AWARE that danger lurks out there - even pre-zombie. Oh, and she knows how to shoot...I’m afraid that I’ll lose my favorite gun when the zombies come. :>)
I love TWD, though I got pretty disgusted with the touchy-feely, kumbaya BS last season. First season, I could understand the lack of common sense by a bunch of suburban folk, because their world was turned upside down pretty much instantly. By season 2 they should have been far more sensible, and largely weren’t. Now it looks like they’ve wised up for the most part. I don’t understand, though, why they don’t use guns more - most of the people are gone, and you can presume that most homes and (especially) the prison would have plenty that wasn’t expended in the initial appearance of the zombies. Close range, you use your most deadly (no pun intended) weapons - longer range, you can use bows & arrows and such, so as to conserve ammo.
Anyway, looking forward to a much better season...especially if we don’t have a Zed as President. I, for one, am very tired of the undead that we have to deal with now - those wandering around in a daze, expecting everyone else to provide a pound of flesh for them just because they exist, and threatening to riot if they don’t get what they want. Oh, and the present undead are also, thankfully, largely unable/unwilling to use guns, just like the Zeds on TWD.
Lori bears some responsibility for his death, as she was playing him like a fiddle. Rick should kick her out and hook up with the blond - Lori's not a good mother or a wife.
