** It's probably meant to be a CallBack to the NOTLD remake. Barbara sees the survivors tying up zombies and lynching them, realising that they are no better than the zombies.

* The entire group seems to accepts the dead are coming to life at face value and already decide they must be killed rather quickly, based on only a few sketchy reports from the radio. This all occurs before they before they have their first encounter with the walking dead. While it does help get the ball rolling so to speak, the transition from everything is normal, to full blown acceptance of the zombie apocalypse feels rather rushed.

**Maybe, camera toting nerds they are, they've watched enough movies to know skeptics die first?

* As a mental exercise, try to trace the path of the zombie clown from the point he put that makeup on to the point where he turns up at the birthday party: so, he goes to the party, checks in with the homeowners (he emerges from inside the house, so obviously someone let him in), goes into a private room (presumably to change into his makeup - if he showed up in makeup then presumably he went to use the bathroom), dies of an aneurysm or heart attack or something, ''lies there long enough to reanimate without anyone checking on him or wondering where he went,'' then - as a zombie - gets out of the room he's in, and finds his way to the backyard without running into anyone on the way. (This is pretty common in zombie movies - zombies who obviously reanimated under circumstances that only make sense if the change from living person to zombie happens more-or-less instantly. The Romero movies are actually better that most in that regard, in that anyone who dies becomes a zombie; in movies where you have to get bitten to change, you're faced with people who apparently got bitten by an obviously unhealthy person, then went about their normal routine for the few hours it takes to transform, despite the fact that they're getting progressively sicker the entire time, so that they can show up as zombies in bridal gowns, mascot uniforms, bikinis, etc.)

** There has only been one year in the last century which the British armed forces have not been engaged in active duty somewhere in the world. There's probably a lot of wars he might have served in.

**** If zombies hunt by scent, an occasional shower is a good idea. But better to check up the place first and lock the door.

*** ''Of course'' you should take a shower! Even zombies wanna have some clean, peach-scented flesh once in a while!

* Isn't that whole internet thing going to die soon? Last I heard the Internet ran on electricity an electricity was kinda finite based on the supply of coal, natural gas, oil, fissile material, etc throughout most of the US and the world. What's the point of making a video to post on YouTube when YouTube will shut down once all of its servers lose power?
** Yeah, not sure where you're getting this "soon" idea. The planet isn't in danger of running out of all those things, certainly not all at once.
