A commenter on another site discussing FTWD made a good point about why the Military struggled to maintain order and control the zombies.
He said the problem for the military and police was that they had to fight both the Dead and living people who refused to comply with orders to leave their homes. This was alluded to on the show but not explained very well.
Looking at it that way, it makes more sense how the inevitably government failed to successfully manage the crisis.
Final thoughts on last night's episode:
- The characters Daniel, and Strand were extremely engaging and I'm interested in seeing where the story goes with those two.
- The characters of Liza and Nick really grew on me. I'm still indifferent towards Travis, Madison, and the teens.
- It was nice to see the show get back to LA on last night's episode. However, I don't think they will have the budget next season to do an entire season in LA. Maybe Strand's yacht will take them to another interesting location? We shall see.
