The Walking Dead: 10 Giant Plot-Holes You Probably Missed
9. Characters Somehow Always Get Ambushed By Massive Hordes Of Slow-Moving Zombies
The body count tallied up by the Walking Dead due to zombie attacks is staggering and enough to make Game of Thrones envious. But realistically, how are so many people getting ambushed by zombies in the first place? The Walking Dead likes to lean on the sudden zombie ambush trope quite a bit, but it shouldn't realistically happen at all. Zombie behaviour in the show has been inconsistent from season to season, but they seem to always be noisy and slow to move. So really, every character who has any amount of spatial awareness and hearing capacity should be able to at least outrun a bunch of oncoming zombies. It actually manages to get worse as there are scenes where a character is on the lookout and they somehow manage to completely look past an enormous zombie horde until they're about 100 metres away (looking at you Dale). A few fans have tried to wave some of this incompetence off by assuming that every major character is essentially deaf due to the amount of gun use in the show. That's not a bad theory, but it doesn't really work as if every character were truly deaf, then each character should not be able to communicate with each other and there would literally be no conversations in the show. Based on some of the corny dialogue, this might not be such a bad idea actually.
My life story is nothing special. I haven't cured ebola, I'm nowhere near stopping terrorism, and I'm still working on that climate change problem.
Instead, all I've done so far is put a few hundred words together in an attempt to make people laugh.
