The Walking Dead Season 3…Is The Prison Really That Great?

In my humble opinion: I know we’re all excited for season 3 to premiere on AMC this Sunday, but I find myself asking…would I really want to take refuge in a prison?  I know in the comics, that’s how it goes and it’s cool and all, but I still can’t convince myself that if I was being chased by an army of the undead I would corner myself in a place that is designed to keep things in…not necessarily out.  I’ve had conversations with a friend of mine and we’ve come to two conclusions as to where we would head.  1.  The local Sam’s Club, Costco, or Wal-Mart…whichever is closer.  If you’ve seen any of the aforementioned destinations then you can attest to the fact that they are huge concrete buildings with limited entrances and exits, not to mention a plentiful amount of supplies such as food, clothing, generators, weapons, and entertainment.  I mean just because you’re avoiding flesh-eating monsters doesn’t mean you can’t take time out for a little XBOX action right?  2.  T-Dog had a pretty damn good idea at the end of season 2…head for the coast.  I mean if you can get to the beach and find a yacht or a large enough boat, then you can just sail up and down the coast, coming ashore whenever you need supplies.  I’ve never seen a zombie swim before, so odds are you’d be pretty safe; and let’s say they can swim, you’d only really be in danger if you crossed paths with a zombie Michael Phelps.  Anyway, wherever our characters end up, I’m still hyped for the season 3 premiere, just thought I would share my opinion as to where I’d go…but then again I guess a Wal-Mart full of zombies isn’t as exciting as a prison full of zombies.
