EP 2 wasn't bad.

Shows like this, and movies like The Road really make
me wish for some sort of apocalypse. I think that would
be an awesome, meaningful way to live. Survival, that
is.
I watch you...

Not unless you have stuff worked out before the dead rise/bomb goes off/aliens land (delete as applicable). That's why I have a collection of weapons, a portable generator and a lifetimes supply of baked beans under my stairs. No other reason...

I've been reading The Road and it is definitely not a future I'd want to live in.  Fun to read about, though (and depressing)

Before?  No, not so far (I'm probably 2/3 of the way in).  It makes it sound like there was an explosion from a nuclear bomb or something, but it's vague.  In the part where it happens, the father seems to know what's going on or is sort of prepared for it, so to me it implies that it was an ongoing war of some kind.

I haven't seen the movie - I had it from Netflix for like 3 weeks and was never in a mood to watch it.

edit: I'm going to take a break from the book for a little while since it's so depressing

The movie was awesome. It had Omar (from The Wire)
in it.

Part of the reason I want to get a gun is in case of apocalypse. Is that weird? Post-apocalyptic LA is so cliche, but it would be a lot of fun. Just me, my dog, and a few guns.

The movie was awesome. It had Omar (from The Wire)
in it.

Enough for me to watch it.

I want a crossbow. Like that redneck in Walking Dead.

It would probably be best to wait until after the apocalypse
to get a gun, though. Then you can just loot it and don't
have to worry about background checks. Plus your choices
wouldn't be limited to what's legal.

Episode 3 is hell of boring so far

edit: Got better for a minute at the end.  Looks like 4 should be good

Heh, when I saw it at first I was like "oh, so that's what he meant"
