    Interesting idea about Cracker Barrel.

    Seems Cracker Barrel would be a nice product placement source of revenue.

    I agree on the newer, especially higher end cars, but if people can recover from gunshots and getting hit by a car as fast as these characters have, and if gasoline is still good; I could see those fancy cars being doable on the show. I was thinking product placement again, but I'm not sure the Caddy, BMW, Jag, Ferrari, etc., people would want their cars shown as the dirty things that a few years without a carwash would make them. Plus, models newer than 2011 could not be shown.

    They could add a little down to earth sci fi to this show by making use of some of the satellites that are still circling the earth on a higher tech level than the Terminus radio announcements if they wanted to do that in the future. Kirkman's interview in another thread made me think of that. I'm just wanting to keep Eugene relevant.

    The opening minutes of episode 11 look good.

    Considering they keep finding doctors,surely they have at least one actual car mechanic throught the many communities and you can't tell me those can't teach the other people how to work on the newer cars,it's not really rocket science after all . Sure,now it's war time and they don't really have the time or the men but what about before in peace time ? And besides,what are they going to do in say 10 years,when these cars brake the fuck down and don't work at all anymore ?

    Depends on the mechanic. My uncle was a mechanic - he could fix anything. Except newer cars loaded down with electronics because he never had that kind of training. And there's the equipment needed for diagnostics - you can't just fiddle with an engine like that. I'm not saying they couldn't do it. Just that it's easier and less complicated to use the older cars that they can just fiddle around with.

    At some point, I would expect them to have to find alternate sources of transportation regardless. Don't they start using horses in the comic?

    I know the Kingdom people use horses but that's their whole shtick,however how many horses can they realistically find that haven't been eaten by walkers and even if they find them it would be way more dangerous to wander around especially if a whole zombie herd attacks you like it did Rick in the pilot episode .

    Gettin off topic but Quick idea, that new car that for some reason is going to break down.... no problem. Why? You just go to the dealership and get the next beemer in line. You wanna fortify a office building and fill it with dildos it's your choice. There's none of that in this show. Everything and everywhere is always the fuckin same. All back roads with nothing on them not even a Starbucks ...get the hell outta here. It's just so cheap and lazy so much so anything that happens walkin through the same set doesn't even matter to me.

    That happens with cars too - like when Daryl, Michonne, Tyreese, and Bob went on that medicine run. Walkers aren't going to eat the car, but they had to abandon it anyway. lol

    I don't know where they got the horses - I just remember after the time jump they were riding horses. Of course, if they can find some, they can also breed them.

    To be fair i'm not sure she actually killed anybody while she was on the Governor's side,sure she participated in the assault on the prison but i don't remember her even shooting at somebody,i may be wrong though,it's been a long time since i watched that arc .
