Our first half-hour episode. The second script,"In-Convenience, pt 2" was scrapped. At this point in the development of the show we had a solid roster of actors and production staff, which allowed me to write a more ambitious script. We also had accumulated a large sound effect library from various sources.
In this episode we introduce...and then quickly kill off...a number of characters. The character of Derrik was introduced simply as a companion to Gray. The episode focuses mainly on the carnage and how Ronni and Hicks escape. It is intentionally left ambiguous how the violence spread so quickly, but there is evidence that the infection was brought in from the outside by local residents and perhaps even the crew of the helicopter found at the end of the episode.
When I first logged on and heard the story lines I really did not know what to think. But as the story progressed I was drawn into it and began to see the stroy as the players moved along the storyline. My frist impression was that Gray was/is a jerk and Caitlin would soon be sorry being with him, which view was vindicated soon. Hicks and Ronni seemed an unlikely couple, but perhaps Ronni would become more of a survivor if she stops making dumb mistakes, she did not carry or use a gun until the water tower and she came inot her own. But I find the story lines difficult to follow since I did not hear the first storline of "Heros...". But the pod cast has definately won me over and I can hardly wait to hear what cimes next! I recommend this to all zombie fans looking for a good story line!
