Not liking how much they are veering off from the comic. Up until now I could take the whole " separate entities", but to make that grotesque of a change to the characters, imo was utterly uncalled for.

Now I'm left wondering did Carol make it, and what the hell is up with Andrea and her "bad boy loving complex" and I can't wait for Michonne to the bad ass she is in the comic..

Carl is a Lil' Bawse, too.


What if Carl did notshoot his mom? Watch her come back later and Rick, who is an emotional wreck, has to kill her off

Smart move in my opinion. Gives those who have read the comic, myself included, some pretty cool surprises and makes watching the show much better.

I know we love the comic book material, but the shock value is what keeps you watching.

Personally I'm glad they changed from the comics and though I've never even read or heard of 'em, it makes me feel better that the pricks who come in here ruining things for guys like me don't know what's gonna happen next just because they read them.

Not all the guys but just the pricks who come in here talking about other characters, what happened in the comics vs the tv show, etc.

Anyway I'm loving the tension between Merle and the government, even though I have a sneaky suspicion of how it'll end.

I'm not trying to whine, rant or vent, but there's a few key things that I wish they would have kept the same, all the filler stuff, "small storylines", "shock value", I'm completely down with.

There's stuff in the comics that IMO makes the characters who they are, gives them a more depth, feeling and overall there's a stronger connection, siding with them when they have to make the tough choices and even more loss when they meet their end.

There's certain scenes that would have hooked more people, like Dale's death for example, getting bit by the walker that Carl didn't kill to me just didn't do it for me, in the comic he has a way more EPIC death:

SPOILER:

he gets bit, leg amputated "a la Hershel" and then gets captured by cannibalistic hunters who begin to eat him, "Tainted Meat." He sits there laughing and Rick and company come in to pick them off, Andrea being the awesome sniper that she is..

Dont be putting SPOILER ALERT. People already know not to come here after an episode ends.


Anyways .. R.I.P. Lori.

Sad to see one of the main characters gets killed off ... even though her character was a bit annoying ... but still, bitch was also one of the characters SINCE DAY 1.

This is what I suspect. What if she didn't die? I'm a firm believer in if you didn't see it, it's not definite

Well, either she's dead, a zombie, or near dead, but at least there's a major change to her and we likely won't see her for a while or not at all outside of them finding her body and flashbacks.
