    I LOVED the Fear TWD premiere episode!
    HR has a point that we're all infected.  After all, that was determined in Season 1 of TWD.  The events of Fear TWD occur in the same world as TWD.  Fear TWD happens while TWD Rick is in a coma.  Fear TWD is supposed to be about how the outbreak started.
     
    It's implied that Nick's girlfriend, Gloria, is patient zero.  It's also implied that a bad batch of heroine turned her into a zombie.  My take on it in this.  As of Fear TWD's premiere episode, we're all infected.  A dormant plague (similar to the one in the 2008 movie The Happening) infected everyone and caused people to turn once they died.  The bad batch of heroine triggered Gloria's turn to a zombie while she was alive.  The stepped-on heroine in Gloria's body was transferred to the ones she bites (and so on).  Gloria was never killed.  Therefore, she's free to continue spreading the trigger.  And since we're already infected, those that die naturally will also turn (that's why Nick's dealer turned).  Nick had a resistance to whatever triggered the turn.  Since this bad batch of heroine was sold elsewhere, more than one patient zero exists.  In the end, the zombie apocalypse is a result of a dormant plague and patient zero's trigger.

    The forum admins do check out this topic area.  If a number of people show a positive response, they'll consider it.  My guess is that if a lot of users access this forum through mobile devices, that would put it higher on the list for consideration.  Additionally, if the admins are already aware of the benefits of Tapatalk, that would make it even more likely.  If it's as simple as adding an icon for it below (along w/ Twitter, Facebook, Google+, etc.), then it's likely to happen.

    I watched all the previous episodes on demand, and now I'm addicted.  I really enjoyed watching it.  It'll be interesting to see where they go with the story arc.

    Since she expressed an interest in Trek, it sounds like she already has a couple of episodes in mind -- otherwise it wouldn't have sparked her interest in begin with.  Find out what those episodes are and watch them with her.  Then find other good episodes from the same series she's interested in.

    Yours and mine both.
