Spoilers to Follow.
Chekhov (not the navigator on the NCC1701) said something to the effect: "If in the first act you have hung a pistol on the wall, then in the following one it should be fired. Otherwise don't put it there."
Well, Sheriff Grimey Grimes found a grenade in the 1st Act, and in the 6th he finally got to use it.
Ok, that season is in the can. I like it, but sometime the writing is stretching. Magical CAT scans at CDC? Computer controlled and voice activated building? A FANCY building in the center of town, and architectural wonder, but with a mission you don't want folks to know about?
I know gummint buildings. It should be designed in New Soviet Union concrete esthetics. And probably be on a military installation to better protect it.
You got fuel for the fuel air bomb for the self destruct sequence, but not the generator?
Sheesh. A bit forced.
But that doesn't mean I don't like it. I mean, hey, ZOMBIES. I'll certainly catch the second season. I'm just worried it's trying to jump the shark. Explode the fridge.
I'd like to see our merry band of survivors, shrinking all the time, start to show some competence in the second season. Also, some more zombies. I am avoiding seeking out the comic book and graphic novel for this to avoid my own self-spoilers, though I do know they've already deviated from the source material on the TV.
I have a feeling I know what Doc Jenner told Grimes in that whispered convo at the end. "You know that blood test I took? Yeah, your missus is gravid. And the blood is kinda whiney and impulsive so the Deptuty is probably the baby-daddy. Oh, you didn't know she was doing the woodland clearing waltz nekkid with that guy less that 12 hours before you came back and were cutting a slice off that loaf? So yeah, could be either, but I'm thinking it's your best buddy. Well I hope she took a swim in the quarry between the two of you at least..."
Happy Thanksgiving! -
