Zombie Cliche Lookout: Don’t Be Stupid
Given the choice between disarming yourself and living, or getting shot, the decision generally becomes pretty easy. Not getting shot is generally a pretty solid strategy in life, and you never know when you might be able to get the upper hand on the bad guys if you stay on your toes and keep your eyes open for opportunities to present themselves.
On the other hand, maybe you’re just badass enough to take out the bad guys before you can get shot. Probably you’re not, but I guess you never know.
About this Episode:
The challenge with this episode was to show Clark and Ted throwing down their weapons, which isn’t a terribly easy task with LEGO®. I can’t say I’m 100% satisfied with the results here, but it works.
We’re breaking schedule a bit this week, and I have another review posted today. I know, reviews are typically a Tuesday thing (and sometimes Thursdays), but this was at the request of the publisher to coincide with the release of the book. At any rate, the book is called The Unofficial Hunger Games Wilderness Survival Guide, and it was written by Creek Stewart of Willow Haven Outdoor (who also did the book on Bug Out Bags I reviewed a while back).
Entertaining stuff, and there’s another cool bonus here: the publisher sent me a couple swag packs with autographed copies of the book and a couple of other cool things. Check out the review for details.
Discussion Question: How Far is Too Far?
I’m pulling another discussion question right from the comments here, because that’s how I roll (in point of fact, you guys kick ass and the comments here are a wealth of awesome discussion). This time, it’s how much reality do you really want in your zombie apocalypse stories? This comes, naturally enough, right from the current plot arc. We’ve got three male prisoners who have Ted’s wife and children captive; what level of violence are we up for when it comes to our zombie entertainment?
As far as I’m concerned, my level isn’t very high. I’m all for killing zombies and plenty of action, but that’s about the end of it.
