Fear the Swimming Dead?

You gotta think, if there’s a zombie apocalypse going on, certain places of refuge are going to be better than others. You probably wouldn’t run into any zombies in Antarctica, for example. The down side to that is, it’s Antarctica. Human beings can’t survive there without supplies being shipped in from somewhere else. Same problem you’d run into on top of Mount Everest. No zombies up there, but nothing else up there either, including oxygen. Middle of the Gobi desert? No zombies. No ability to grow crops, either, plus there’s that whole scarcity of potable water thing. Just because a place is safe from zombies doesn’t mean you could survive there, is what I’m saying. Is there ANY place where you could go to get away from the ravening hordes and actually be able to, y’know, live?

Getting on a boat might seem like a good idea. Unless zombies can swim. But even if they COULD swim, they’re not likely to be too fast about it; doubtful there’d be any Michael Phelps-type walkers. A boat with a running engine would be able to get away from them. Heck, you could PADDLE and get away from them. But what would you eat? Fish? Okay, provided you had a rod and reel. But where to get fresh water? Putting into port every once in while to get supplies? Those ports would likely be where the zombies are. The cast of THE WALKING DEAD will take to the high seas in their upcoming season to try to escape the walkers. Will they be successful? The network wouldn’t have a show if they did, so relax. There’ll be zombie aplenty.

And how cool is that promo image, amiright?
