    How We're Alive zombies are different to other stories

    It occurred to me, as i was looking at whether a zombie outbreak would actually work, and a found a website, giving 7 reasons why it wouldn't work. 2 of the reasons it gave was that, due to the body being dead, either it will shrivel up and decompose, or freeze and burst. Tell me if i'm wrong, but i don't think its ever been said that our zombies are actually dead, just that they have physically changed. In my opinion, its another way in which Kc manages to keep this podcast as real as possible, with a great job at it too.

    That is actually why i like this podcast. Not a fan of any zombie movies, or TV shows.

    I never liked the rotting, moaning, half eaten, zombies wandering in hordes.

    but this podcast is different. I like the idea that they are alive, but just different from us.

    As it has been said, it is a story of survival.

    Well, I think most zombie fiction is assuming that we'll suspend our disbelief about a decomposing body walking around and eating people, like with The Walking Dead (they actually do some really interesting stuff with that though, that I haven't seen on any other zombie show or movie). However, I think the main gripe, when we've gotten past the suspension of disbelief, is the fact that slow zombies would not be able to take over the world. The military would absolutely tear them apart, no question. But, what's great about We're Alive is that with the quickness of the spread, and the tactical advantages of the biters, it's actually plausible that they could take out most of the human race. And if you need further proof, look at what happens to Fort Irwin at the end of season 3. That's something almost never shown in zombie fiction: the actual military fighting zombies.

    Oh, hell yea. Normal hoards of biters would stand no chance at all against even one M2 Bradley or M1 Abrams. If they an out of ammunition, they would make great steamrollers, and out of fuel they become bunkers. It took the hoards of "little ones" which had an advantage because of their advanced intelligence and strength to figure out how to stop the Bradleys.


    I really hated to see Ft Irwin go, but i also hated the Colonel.

    I like WD. But I do not like the Idea of reanimated Dead. If the Z-Day happens it will be to me on the Idea of 28 Days later.. Its why this podcast appeals to me so much. It plausible in my fantasy world.

    Agree with whats been said. I love how the zombies are in this story.... I know we are dealing with fiction, but it feels more "possible" then just about all other zombie stories. I love the "realness" of WA. Its great.

    Sounds like a great idea. It makes sense and I also noticed these things.

    Whatever floats your pretty little boat.

    You're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I'm tripping you.

    This just came up again in another thread so I'm going to repeat myself: I don't think the WA zombies are dead. My assumption is that they're the ones that are alive and that it's really some sort of plague / virus / etc. that has caused the outbreak. I agree that the WA universe seems much more realistic than other zombie scenarios I've seen.

    If not dead, why doesn't generally take head shots? how do they not bleed to death or react to wounds(Riley's arrow to the leg, Ink shot in the chest)? Just curious..

    Didn't CJ said they could bleed out?
    It seems like when they are attacked in a certain way their bodies quickly toughen their bodies to make that attack less effective. I had the impression that at first gun shots work, then you need more and more firepower.

    Of course, that comes with it's own problems. How their bodies know what an attack is vs. life is a mystery. Like, cellular death, lung action or intestinal flora.

    Are they clean? Characters have talked about how they smell like poo, but they are apparently still wearing clothes for the most part (they describe the clothing on the one that jumped onto the helicopter) and people are able to see the tattoos clearly.
