    I think that an obligatory cast cull won't be noticed if the scene is made exciting enough. There are only 4 seasons planned, so if a couple of characters die here, a couple next time, and then literally anything could happen when it all ends. As long as we can find some new, interesting characters along the way to keep us interested, then think it could work.

    Thats what I think anyway.
    I hear you, but this most recent chapter is a case in point, was it any less exciting, less tense, were the threats taken any less seriously because nobody died? I know loads of people were expecting at least Burt or Angel to get snuffed.

    I don't think people dying make threats more ominous, they just punctuate the story. I'm not saying don't kill anyone off, I'm just saying, don't always kill off the main characters at the end of the season. It's a bit cliché. Do it mid season when it's more of a shock and totally unexpected.

    On the http://zombiepodcast.com/forum/showt...k him yourself thread, post 25, KC says he has four seasons planned.

    I see your mid season point, but mid season has been and gone. Sure, maybe finale deaths are a bit cliché, but sometimes thats not a bad thing. You know that anything could happen in season finales, and for me thats the exciting bit of it. I think that its the build up that makes it so great. If a main character died when just one random zombie ran up and got them it would feel cheap.

    But maybe I'm crazy and just like seeing characters killed off.

    Hi guys, long time no post!, the episode was great and put a nice end to the "hospital helo" arc, The Saul's side of the story was a pretty good cliffhanger. Personally I'm for the "bluff-lure-ambush" thing, but with KC, u nevah know!

    BTW, Sorry j0be, I think you chose the wrong chopper, don't know if anyone pointed out:

    Edit 2: Well, I feel sorry for @Britt. Absolutely jam packed with content in this episode.

    That's a Huey (or a 204/205 civ version, and an old one with single turbine), it has skid's instead of wheels like Burt described, and the sound of those is what you hear in old 'Nam movies, the sound in the background is way too different.

    The chopper must be a Bell 230 or 430, son and grandson of the 222 (the chopper used in Airwolf TV series) like this one:



    with colors like this Canuck Sikorsky S-76:



    It may be like the one suggested by Blood & Ice Cream previously (a 206L, it seems), but my mind says "skids or wheels" not "skids and wheels".

    Because of your post bvglee, I've not been able to get the Airwolf theme tune out of my head.
    So much so that due to me singing it all the time, it's infected my family and my wife and kids are humming it too. Bearing in mind my kids are too young to even know what the hell Airwolf is!

    Character death prediction: Skittles

    Maybe not this chapter but I can see him sacrificing himself.

    I think the Pinstriped guy is modifying his 'army of zombies'. and remember the "little ones" how there was a 5 tattooed on the arm and its nails filed down. Also, I think he is gathering more humans in order to build this army. (Remember how Michael and that killed the zombie that was dragging the unconcious Tanya).
