Last night turned into standard TV fare. At least for me. But, following on from my apocalyptic post last night, do you have a Zombie Survival Plan?
Seriously! Do you have a plan? Have you ever TEWT (Tactical Exercise Without Troops) a Zombie outbreak in your home village, suburb, workplace and what you'd do to survive? We do. You see, Heather had expressed interest in how I found my Christmas stocking filler DAY TO DAY ARMAGEDDON by JL Bourne.
We ended up having a semi-serious, but fun chat over supper about the coming Zombie apocalypse. Heather took the scenario by the horns. We ditch the 4x4 and take a tractor from the dealership up the road. Zombies block the road? No problem, mow them down. Cars or lorries in the way or need a fast escape cross country - this sukka will rip through a hedgerow and cross a ditch with impunity. Plenty of spares in the local farms.
We don't intend going far - no road trip - I've staked out a farm and converted steading in the hills. Off the beaten track, own water supply, one way in, easily defended.
My preferred weapon? A sharpened shovel.Well, at least until I could get my hands on a pump action Benelli!
Nice Plan, you got everything figured out.ReplyDelete
Read the comic book, the TV series is good, the comic book better...ReplyDelete
I'm with Steve on this. I prefer the comic to the series, which was too slow to start. Thank goodness Resident Evil was on the following night to get a proper zombie fix in! :-) Of course, my dissatisfaction with the series could be a function of my familiarity with the comic.ReplyDelete
The comic is way better... and will chill you to the bone at times. It really is unforgiving.ReplyDelete
Resident Evil Extinction is a good movie - love the early Zombie stuff - loses it when Iain Glen turns into a mutant. But Ali Larter is tres cute.ReplyDelete
I'll pop into Forbidden Planet this week and pick up the comic.
The comic is amazing. I liked the first few episodes of the T.V. series but was disappointed in some of the later episodes.ReplyDelete
In case you are interested, a friend of my sister sells Zombie Apocalypse insurance. I can put you in touch with her if you like. You get a nice framable certificate of the policy as well. Just between you and me, I think the certificate is the whole point.ReplyDelete
