The main reason it is so unsettling is it looks more like a dismembered human corpse then a dismembered zombi-fied corpse and that it is of a scantily clad women. If you just saw that on someone's shelf without knowing it was tied to dead island, would you think it is the corpse of a zombie or the victim of a horror movie slasher?
Wombat's right, you mention Tokyo American Club quite often. It's not a judgment or meant to disparage, it's just a statement of fact.
There is room for a silly spiderman series, but as Wombat said, many are just annoyed that spectacular spiderman had to die for silly spiderman to live. It wasn't lack of viewership that caused it to be canceled, it was a matter of the spiderman license transferring back to marvel so they squashed the one produced by Sony in favor of one completely produced by marvel animation instead. They could have continued to let the old series run its course or run both in parallel, but they chose to just snuff out a quality program in favor of a program of less quality in the opinion of many viewers.
Daily Show did a piece just yesterday about the NRA's efforts to deball the ATF (for example, due to a rule inserted into the patriot act by an NRA crony, the ATF hasn't been able to have a permanent director in SIX fuckING YEARS). They are also responsible for that ban on research you mentioned.
