AMC’s show, The Walking Dead, has made zombies – even the apocalypse – a hot new trend. So much so that fans are willing to overlook the fact that while everyone now carries the zombie virus, you will still only become a zombie if you die or are bitten. Case in point – Hershel had his leg cut off after being bitten by a zombie to avoid infection. But I have to wonder if it really necessary to cut off his leg since he’s already carrying the virus anyway. How is a bite any different if you’re already infected? Anyone know? (Psst. If you’re like me and don’t have cable, you can catch up on Season 3 of The Walking Dead via Amazon instant video.)
