Video of every Zombie Death in The Walking Dead - Season One and Two and Webisodes. How long much can you watch?

Pretty impresive!

Everyone should go play Telltale's Walking Dead game. It is leaps and bounds better than both the show and the comic.

I didn't realize there were any zombies on The Walking Dead that weren't killed by a single gunshot to the exact center of the forehead.

I want to see all the deaths.
I'm surprised there are only 350-odd.
Seems like there should be more*.

Who dreams this stuff up and decides to do it?

You forgot T-Dog already?
He got less gun time than he did speaking time.

One of the first zombies Rick had to kill, the female with half a body (in the upper right corner of the infograph), got a backstory in the Torn Apart Webisodes

I was honestly thinking of going to AskMe to ask how many zombies have been killed on The Walking Dead. This is cool.

Man, I miss the tension and pacing of the early episodes.

Rick coming around a corner in (what we were led to believe was deserted) downtown to face a mass of silent undead was so powerful. And the scene where Rick and Glenn cover themselves in gore and shamble through the walkers was great. I remember the "oh, shit" moment when I realized what the rain meant for them.

The game by Telltale is really great, but I don't think I'd call it leaps and bounds better than the books or tv show. I hold all three in high esteem, but see the game as a solid companion, but not categorically better. I'd have to go comics > tv show > video game.

So, the fact that way more zombies are male than female:
From a feminist standpoint, is that a good thing (avoiding problematic depictions of male on female violence, which carries more baggage than male on male or female on male violence), or a bad thing (ignoring the fact that women make up half the population)?

Huh. I'd have thought it was relatively 50/50.
Never noticed.

(avoiding problematic depictions of male on female violence)

They have gone out of their way to avoid that. So far as I have seen (and I am one ep behind) the Governor doesn't nearly enjoy as much sexual violence as he does in the comic.
