    They probably had no way to explain why the power had went out at the time. I mean, it was bound to happen eventually with the infrastructure collapsing and what not. And after 3 months, it seems kind of pointless discussing that.

    TWD comic, TV series and of course the game are about smaller scale happenings. The characters always try to piece together the present history of the world, but they always lack that perspective. What happened to the military? Is the president still alive? Are there any countermeasures from the government left? TWD is about basic survival, about adjusting to the situation so much that people don't even talk about a possible cure. They just try to live a bit longer.

    Power plants are probably abandoned or overrun at some point - but who knows? Until the characters happen to stumble on one, we'll never know.

    When a zombies turn up, most people will panic and try and escape.

    i would doubt many people would stay and carry on with their jobs. also you could say any nuclear power plant would be blown up as an infection counter measure..

    other power plants like hydro could stay on but with out maintenance would eventually fail, the power grid would be controlled by goverment and only priority areas would be allowed to stay on everywhere esle would be shut down..

    and the public transport that would be stopped to reduce cross contamination..

    bigger picture people...

    Clem: Lee?
    Lee: What is it Clem?
    Clem: Lilly recorded over Spongebob Squarepants with all her shit.
    Lee: Clem, you need to stop using bad words. Did you talk to Lilly?
    Clem: Yes...she got mad and started to yell a lot. I told her she didn't need to be a bitch about it. Right Lee?
    Lee: Your mother is soooo going to kill me.

    If you're interested in the global/political ramifications of a zombie apocalypse from a personal viewpoint, read World War Z by Max Brooks - excellent book!

    That... doesn't really make sense, if the government was able to exert any real control over power grids and public transport, there's zero reason they wouldn't be able to keep the Walker situation itself under control.

    Too much authorial fiat for my tastes, either that or Max Brooks (forgot the author's name) was genuinely clueless when it came to the stuff he was writing about.

  • It is complete fiction about a zombie apocalypse on an international scale written from an American perspective, I can only presume there was something in particular you took issue with.

  • I can only assume that there were bigger concerns. The group was starving, and finding food was at the top of the priority list. During the course of three months, I figured that Lee's group had managed to settle with the electricity problem.

    You're assuming if it happened they wouldn't be able to keep it under control.
    You see, in all these shows, movies, books.. people never know what the fuck zombies are.
    In real life... we all know what the fuck zombies are.
