OK.... now that the new season is starting I tried to catch up with Season 2, which I missed.
The problem was the first episode, the one with all the zombies stumbling through the abandoned traffic. Everybody seemed to screw up in a way that resulted in detection by a small number of zombies. Finally the little girl was saved by the sheriff who hid her in a log and said he was going to distract the two zombies who were a few steps behind her, but apparently stopped long enough for a conversation to take place. "I get winded, they don't," he said.
What sense does that make? Where are these zombies getting their energy. If they can run, why do they spend so much time shambling? If they need to eat, why don't they just eat eachother? I know, it would mean just one fat zombie after a while, but they seem awfully picky for mindless beasts. The illogic of the show just keeps pulling me out.
I am glad to see that someone eventually shows up with a samurai sword, but is it really worth wading through 20 episodes of various other inventive ways of dispatching the decaying to get to that?
