Before the Zombie Apocalypse, had the characters of The Walking Dead never heard of the concept of Zombies?
Is that a general conceit that is made in zombie movies/shows? Because if they had heard of zombies from pop culture (the way we all have) wouldn’t they be calling them Zombies instead of Walkers, Geeks, Lame Brains, etc?
Does anyone have any insight on this? Is the Walking Dead universe one where Zombies are not a part of pop culture? Is this something the writers have commented on?
