I have to say I’m very concerned about the fate of humanity on AMC’s The Walking Dead. As Season 2 begins, the ratio of adult female to adult male survivors is 3 to 6, which is bad enough without one of the female characters having at least more than a passing interest in killing herself. From a pure “survival of the species” perspective, if people couple up you’ll have 3 dudes left out in the cold, which doesn’t necessarily bode well for guys who have to deal with with the stresses and adrenaline bursts that daily life in a post-zombie apocalypse world presents. “Can you keep watch for zombies while we procreate?” would wear thin pretty fast.
Right now the women of The Walking Dead are Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies), Andrea (Laurie Holden) and Carol (Melissa McBride).
