Storyline

Having been allowed into the CDC building, the survivors meet Dr. Edwin Jenner who appears to be the only survivor in the facility. There is plenty of food and drink and the surroundings are comfortable. A drunken Shane tries to reconcile with Lori Grimes, but she will have nothing to do with it. Dr. Jenner shows them how the infection works to reanimate a dead corpse but admits that he hasn't been able to make any advance on defeating it. Despair sets in at the realization that there is no cure for the plague that has enveloped them. Jenner has his own plans for the future leaving the survivors only a few minutes to leave the facility. Not everyone chooses to leave however. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The building used to represent the CDC is actually the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. Like the actual CDC, it is located outside of Atlanta, GA, but it doesn't house any infectious diseases. They did film in the area as all of the buildings around the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre are where they need to be, and it appears they also used the lobby of the Centre for the CDC lobby scenes.

Goofs

When Jenner shows the survivors a video of a person becoming a zombie on an MRI, at the end, a gun is shown entering the frame, then a bullet is shot into the brain. A metal gun could not be used anywhere near an MRI, as it would be violently attracted to the skin on the machine and stick to it. See more »

A Classic Zombie Series
28 February 2011 | by soheyl-989-538572See all my reviews

Finally! After a lot of near-nonsensical zombie movies, we've now come across a stylish, matter-of-fact zombie series that's just gripping...to say the least. Apart from the brilliant direction & screenplay, what really hits the viewer(maybe unconsciously)is the brilliant camera-work...and, hold on, the fantastic background music - which is used to a minimum...it's used only at the right moments! Most of the time there's no music, which actually adds to the tension...making you feel you are with them! Of course, the heavy influence of "28 days Later" & "28 weeks later" is obvious, but it's pardonable, considering the final result. Even the background music is influenced by John Murphy...but hey, no problem! The end result - Can't wait for season 2!
