Zombie Cliché Lookout: …While the Getting is Good
Zombies, despite their ability to follow prey to the ends of the earth, can be distracted. Generally that’s in the source of a hot meat, but it’s always possible for them to be attracted to another source of food that looks easier to catch. Whether zombies can actually makes that sort of determination is obviously debatable. At any rate, zombies can be distracted, but if you want to not get eaten, you need to take advantage of that short term distraction as quickly as possible. Yes, it’s tragic that your best friend is now a pile of gory People McNuggets, sitting there moping about it is only going to give the zombies the opportunity to finish him off and come after you.
About this Episode:
Originally, this whole episode was just Stewart and Karen getting up and running away, but I thought that was a bit slow. So now we get to see a bit of Karen’s state of mind after getting bitten and then witnessing her partner eaten alive. Put succinctly, she’s not in a good mental place right now.
I recently found a nice new LEGO® news and review site called Groove Bricks. They haven’t been around too long, but it looks like a pretty cool resource that’s starting to take off. Check it out.
Discussion Question: Bugging in or Bugging out?
The zombies are here, with a vengeance. They spread across the country faster than anyone ever imagined, and now they’re in your city. You’ve got time to gather some basic supplies and family before you’re under siege. If you stay, you have access to everything in your home. If you leave, you can only take what you can load into a vehicle, and you might even have to leave some of that behind if the roads get to clogged or there’s no where to get more fuel.
So what do you do? Hunker down and hope you can ride out the storm, or hit the road and try to find somewhere safer? And if you do hit the road, where exactly are you going?
