So has it been established yet if animals can become zombies?

Animals can't turn into zombies (well in the comics they made it clear) and I think on one of the early Talking Dead shows Kirkman did say that animals can't turn.

T-DOg was awesome! They should have kept him on until everyone else was dead and then he gets his own private golf course, so you can go "Well what do you know".

I feel like the Walking Dead is missing : Long sleeved shirts, newspaper armour leading to leather armour, light halbreds for limb chopping, tough bags to put over their heads, eye shielding, and everyone just needs to clam the hell down on that show.
As for the zombies they need thicker skulls so you have to go for the eyes or you are in big trouble (since the brain would be psuedo-rotting I think it would need more than impact trauma to break it), but they also need softer feet as a single winter with decaying shoes and feet would slow the zombies down signficantly or turn them into crawlers.
Besides my knitt-picking I love the show and hope it sparks my imagination in the future as well.
I am really super enjoying the Governor character by the way. He;'s got a cool actor for him and I am so far more interested in the new group than the old one.

The first time we see Glenn's group they were smart enough to wear padding . I'm surprised more of them didn't pick up the riot gear.

Yeah you would think these people would wear more armor, leather, or padding around more vulnerable areas lol.

Wearing padding and armour would make more since, but then again wouldn't it slow them down ?

Two more days In one of the previews I think it shows


Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Darryl and Meryl being marched to the center of the zombie arena. It'll be interesting to see how they continue Meryls story now that the Gov now knows he lied to him directly about killing Michonne. Will Rick allow him back into the group or will Daryl and Meryl take off together as some are predicting to make room for Tyrese?

Part of an interesting new interview from Glen Mazzara and kind of addresses some of the things we've been talking about here since last week.

HC: It has gone quite dark, however. The scene between Maggie and the Governor created some controversy last week. I’m wondering if that scene means that you’ve chosen not to include the Michonne rape storyline from the comic books.

GM: That Michonne rape story is a huge part of this comic book, and I know that the audience has a lot of expectation about that. I feel that if the Governor is just the type of villain that is mutilating and raping people when we first meet him that he’ll be branded as an arch-villain, he may not feel as human. He’ll just feel like an evil presence without any humanity in him, that’s something that David Morrissey and I are not interested in doing. We really want to show that this is a fully realized person who makes evil choices. That’s interesting. The other thing is that if he comes out and he brutally rapes people right at the beginning, and our characters don’t punish or eliminate him, they will look ineffective. We have to take our time and tell this story. What you see is a man making a choice to sexually threaten a woman to get information. He’s rendering her powerless, he’s humiliating her, simply to get information. When he finds out that that won’t work, when she surprises him and says, “Do what you’re going to do and go to hell,” he says I need a different tack. He’s not just into torture for torture’s sake. He wants the information. Now at the end of the mid-season finale, we know what he’s capable of just to get information — imagine what he’ll do if he wants to exact revenge. That scene in Episode 7 plants a seed of who this character is, what he’s capable of. I don’t think that’s our version of the rape story. I think that’s the seed of a larger story to be told with this character.

HC: So you’re saying the Michonne rape could still happen.

GM: Without a doubt, it could still happen or it could happen with somebody else. Nothing is off the table. These are long-running characters and there’s a long-running story to be told but it needs to be told sensitively, realistically, intelligently and respectfully.

HC: But you’re not necessarily saying it would happen this season.

GM: Not necessarily in this season and who knows if we would ever do that story or not. I don’t want to say that. I’m saying that I feel that that story is such a significant story, it cannot just be burned off. It will feel gratuitous, it will feel shocking, I think it would alienate the audience. It needs to be handled very, very carefully. I would say that that Michonne rape story is one of the most sensitive issues I’ve ever handled in my career as a writer, and it needs to be done right. It can’t just be thrown at the audience for shock value, I think that would be irresponsible as an artist to do that on TV. It may work in a film, it may work in a novel, it may work in a comic book. I didn’t feel it would work in that situation on a TV show.

I don't think wearing some padding or leather would slow them down that much.

Nice to hear that from Glen.

I suppose , but I'd rather wear it just in case. The zombies took out the military so you would have to come up with a makeshift design that works better.

I don't know if you're caught up yet. If not on Sunday AMC's doing a marathon of season 3 up to the premiere of the mid-season finale beginning at 2pm.

Check out the mini-webisode of the Bicycle zombie ( the zombie Rick first encountered with the half torso) on the AMC Walking Dead site. It's tragic, but pretty good.

Yeah, there were two moments that stick out in my mind where if Shane had been around it would of made a difference.

1. Shane would have killed the prisoners or at least definitely made sure they were all dead.

2. Shane would have been a big help in the siege on Woodbury.

I did get a Shane moment when rick shut the gate on Andrew and when they killed the old man. Shane was right about things going like that.
