Really, Janet, zombies?? I always liked this series, and sold a bunch in the bookstore, but it's becoming more like that awful movie. A lot of the charm is gone, ditto the laughs, the formula is stale. Jumped the shark? Mrs. Plum is drinking more and Grandma doesn't go to any viewings without her gun. And I'm totally over the food chatter. And the snake episodes were beyond the pale. Though she caught some bail-jumpers, with the addition of Diesel, she now has 3 men alternately protecting her, worrying about her, lusting after her, feeding & housing her. Not quite so independent... though she did get some off of Ranger. Needs work.
