Well according to the "black guy" (don't remember his name) the infestation started months ago. Well it started a long time enough for the cities to be deserted/void of humans and for fortune/refugees camps/... to be created (like in the gas station).
I was watching it again before and the actor reminded me of the Winters from Band of Brothers. On a iPod now so i cant properly look up the actors name, not the same guy is it? Havnt seen band brothers for about a year and a half
I thoroughly enjoyed it. Looking at what is on TV before Christmas, this is a strong show already, and will nicely augment my Sons of Anarchy/Criminal Minds () addiction.
I'm already pissed that only 6 shows were commissioned.

No, although it's another Englander (who incidentally are going to put the big kybosh on the blackness this weekend, but that's another story). He was in Love Actually, if you ever suffered through that with a lass. Plus a bunch of BBC type dramas (a teaching one leaps to mind), but I don't imagine many outside the UK would have seen them unless they were truly addicted to British TV. The black guy is British too. Thought they did quite well with the southern accents, but I'm far from being a local of Georgia.
BoB's Lt. Winters is a ginge outside of post-production
Aren't the "zombies" from 28 Days Later more dangerous and more likely to spread a virus because they can run? These Romero style zombies move too slowly.
Also in the tank scene at the end of the WD episode, did I see shells lying around outside of the magazine?
They are a different type of zombie. There are two basic types of zombies, the virus infected kind and the undead kind. The virus infected kind have their brain overrun and shuts down to a primitive, animal like state, but they can still be killed just like any other creature. An undead zombie, on the other hand, is an animated dead body with just the primitive parts of its brains working, so the body itself can be in any state of damage, just as long as the brain is intact. Undead zombies are harder to kill, due to where you need to kill them, but their brains function at reduced levels and have body damage that slows them down. Virus zombies are supercharged, they are fast and strong, but they can be killed just like any human.
Undead zombie: You have to shoot them in the head
Virus zombie: You can shoot them anywhere in the body and cause blood loss/organ damage.
That's the reason why, most of the time, virus zombies are just called infected. Since being a zombie implies being dead.
But most undead zombies are also infected with something, except for the original night of the living dead where it was radiation that caused the dead to come back.
Infected and undead zombies are about the same, they both usually hang out in large groups, eat brains and walk/talk like drunk Marines. Ever see a group of drunk Marines, just call out Free Beer and it is like a zombie horde.
