You realize that meat (that would include zombies) decay due to the effects of bacteria and only due to the effect of bacteria. This is also what causes the smell. Meat (or zombies) that were in a place without bacteria would (theoretically) last forever. (thats why frozen meat or zombies do not rot, the cold deters bacterialogical growth) So if the virus that caused zombies somehow was repulsive to bacteria (like salt is) then the zombies would neither rot nor smell. It is not beyond the realm of possibility that a virus could have that effect, penecillin does.

Actually, didn't one of the characters in the series have a line recently like "They smell dead. We don't"? They smeared themselves with zombie innards so they could walk past them safely while making their escape....until a thunderstorm started.

For those who missed the premiere, and do not own a DVR, you can watch the entire first episode online at AMC's website.

Last night's installment was pretty good. The end scene with the zombie attack in camp was intense but you saw different people getting bit/attacked that weren't integral characters, along with those who had been shown before. AMC has a preview video clip of next weeks episode and they show the sister who got killed still dead the next morning. So if you're bit by these zombies and die, you don't come back?
Also wondering what happened to Merle. He supposedly took the van back to the camp but would have surely made it long before the four guys who had to hoof it.

Yes, if you get bit and die you will come back, but it takes a while. I guess Merle did not go back to the camp or he was not the one who took the van. The characters were just assuming after all.

I'm liking it... but it seems a little slow. I'm aware it's more of a human drama than a zombie fest(feast?).
Kinda' want less blah, blah, blah & dramatic pauses and more aaah, ghrrr, uhhh & chomping bites!
Also was a bit disappointed, I got the whole relationship between Mrs. Grimes & his partner in the first episode, did they HAVE to get a bit explicit about it in the start of the second? I don't think that added anything except an unnecessary 'shock factor' & took screen time away from the undead. (Yes, I did say that.)

Perhaps Merle lead the zombies into camp through some back way as payback... just a thought...

I like the show.

If there were no character development and only "chomping" then there wouldn't be much to the series. I think it has the right amount of zombie gore. Personal taste I guess.

I like it too. There has to be some character development or we will not care who gets eaten.
