The Walking Dead fans.... New viewer here and I have a question...

I started watching Season One, Episode One yesterday.... got through Episode Three before going to bed last night. I am starting again in a minute... However, maybe I'm overthinking this whole thing, but I have a question...

Why do they "have to eat"? They are dead, correct? I can understand eating something that comes into their area, but the guy at the camp said they are going out of the city to find food.... Why?? Help, it's bugging me....

  • They don't HAVE to eat. They'll survive indefinitely without food, but hunger is the only thing a zombie thinks about.

  • I'm bothered by the fact that they're not affected by the weather and seasons. Obviously it's hot as Hades there,but the zombies are solid,for the most part. And why didn't they freeze in place in winter,and turn to mush in spring?

  • You'll find out from the Scientist at the CDC. He explains a bit about what's going on.

    My questions is if they eat, they must digest the 'food' as well- or their stomachs would explode, so how it THAT happening if they only have minimal brain function? If they're digesting food, they must be taking a pee and a poop and yet you never see them squating to piss or walking around with dookie running down their legs.

    I think I look into things to much intsead of just sitting back and enjoying them! lol.

  • It's just what zombies DO...I guess

    I mean if they didn't need to eat- what would all the fear be for! We would have no zombies movies or shows ;)
