Andrea's (the older sister) over-acting was downright painful to watch at the end.  Like, so bad that it made me uncomfortable.  And, regarding the boat dialog at the beginning, I think my lovely husband put it best:
"man, that one gal seeing her sister die on the walking dead must have been in as much pain as I was during their fishing talk in the intro."

I agree. That opening scene was annoying.

I just love when the blood splatter ends up on the camera lens.

I believe the role of the CDC is being played by the Aquarium.

(I like that it was actually filmed in Georgia.)

All I could think of is how freakin' loud that must have been to be sitting with my face pressed up to a zombie and to stick a gun right up to it's head and pull the trigger.  That would probably blow an eardrum, not to mention the powder and gas escaping from the gun and chance of a possible ricochet in the skull, causing the bullet to come flying out the face or splattering infected crap all over your own face.  Sure, it was dramatic, but freakishly stupid.

It's not like she had the gun next to her ear.  It was about where it would be if you were firing it straight ahead.  The general lack of concern for cross-contamination seems to be a theme.  Very interested in the final show, to see what light can be shed on things by the CDC guy, which will no doubt set a course for Season 2.

LOL... I was thinking that, thanks for the outline though, just punctuates how stupid it is.

It looked like it was 6 inches from her face.  And, yes, I constantly think about cross contamination.  I mean that dude with the pick ax...that stuff is just flying everywhere, getting on the camera lens and everything.  I'm also excited about the finale and a more leisurely unfolding season 2.

Ditto. Strictly from a safety standpoint, this is an insanely stupid thing (not to mention stupid just to have to watch).  It's the equivalent of having a sizable explosion happen within a foot or so of your face, with your eyes and eardrums unprotected. 
That's not the first beef I've had with firearm safety on the show, though. they need to be more thorough with their research or get someone who knows guns in on the writing.
In one of the first episodes, Rick goofs on Andrea for pointing the gun at people meaningfully, but with the safety on.  Problem is, she's pointing a glock, and glocks don't have a safety.

The glock thing happened in the first episode with the deputy.  Rick says something about the safety and then takes the gun and does something with it (racks the slide?  How and why?) and then hands it back to him.

Laurie Holden has a 9mm Smith and Wesson 3913 Ladysmith, which is the exact gun I'd probably get if I were to purchase one.  I have small hands and can't fire a Glock worth a damn, whereas I can use a 3913 at least half a damn, maybe even three-quarters.  And it does have a safety.

They are starting to lose me. Guess I'll ride it out and see where the show goes.

Ok, I'm dying to know. Can you tell that just by looking at it, or do you have another source on this?

I've finally caught up with this show, and I am not sure about it.  I was REALLY hyped for it based on the fact that the comic serious is absolutely wonderful, but I'm just not sure about the TV series.  The series is taking a completely different direction from the comics, and I'm not sure if I like it.  I just am not sure at all about this trip to the CDC and everything that could come with it.

I could tell just looking at it because I've fired that gun and really liked it.  I even owned one for a very brief time before I sold it to my friend, and sometimes wish I could get it back.
