Michone is an awful character. I'm struggling to understand why we are suppose to sympathize with her. she just comes off as a stereotypical angry black woman or a very controlling lesbian.

Let's put it to a vote

Can we all agree that any mention of the comic has ruined it for the viewers who don't follow the comic?
I know for myself my opinion of Michonne, the Govenor, and even Andrea have drastically changed because of all the hype built up when people start refering to the comic. It's ruinging it for just the TV watchers.

It's got to the point where i can't even scroll through the thread and discuss without having to quickly look away at the word "comic"

Either start a new thread for the strictly comic book followers or a new thread for the only TV follwers. Take your pick because clearly there needs to be seperation

i had much higher expectations of Michonne too where there was so much hype here how bad ass she was going to be. that said i don't really have a problem with her either, just slightly disappointed, but she's still sort of tough. they probably should've kept her as some recluse in the wilderness just killing zombies using new tricks/tactics with a mystery about her than introducing her to the Governor in the town where she looked weak and marginalized without her sword. she also wouldn't have come across as a angry, helpless mute either if that were never shown.

Seconded. And I don't care if your post clearly states "spoiler" in big red letters, WE DON'T F*CKING WANT THEM IN HERE.

You can put me firmly in the "don't care" camp. It's a pulpy TV show, I can't really care too much about maybe or maybe not knowing some details in advance.

That said, it should be common courtesy to post spoilers in white.

If you can post SPOILER: in the comics Carl becomes a gay prostitute,
you can also post SPOILER: in the comics Carl becomes a gay prostitute.

- Honestly....how many people really care?

- If you are postingin a Thread about a TV show based on a popular comic....who is going to be upset with "spoilers" or comic book comparisons?

- If someone is really gonna get thier Jimmies Rustled about Finding out what happens before it shows up on TV....the why would they be on the internet in a Walking dead Thread???

- Same thing with Movie threads?.....If you don't want to know what Happens....don't go on the internet thread...people who really care won't click on the thread......might as well just talk about the Show/comics and be happy.

Movie threads are discussing the movie and it's details after watching it. This particular thread is about a TV show that is not OVER. To answer bold they are here to discuss every episode after it's over not the comics. Most people just watch the show over the comics in case you didn't know, like most people have seen the move rather than reading the book. Since their are most TV watcher than comic readers, the comic readers should respect the TV watcher and post the spoilers in white and don't ruin the series for others.

I think it's simple. People are still going to be assholes and spoil things when you come to threads like these. I haven't even touched the Game of Thrones thread because I only watch the TV show. Visit these threads with your own discretion.

A) Title says Walking Dead....

B) Based on a very Popular Comic series that many people read...( hence why they created a TV series)

C) This is the internet.....so when asking questions about a popular TV show based on a Popular Comic will most likely lead to answers that have already been seen in the comics......

also..

Discussing The Show / Comics will lead to comparisons.....differences in Characters / story.


This is the wrong Forum/thread/site to whine about Comic book comparisons or Spoilers.

( and teh Movie reference was not about people who have watched or already seen the movie....many times spoilers come out months before the movie is released...and people get mad becuase they were reading about it in the movie thread......)

This is the dumbest excuse I've ever heard. Pick up a book, read it, it's a good exercise of your brain that just being fed images from a TV.

books provoke thought.

I'd say distrustful and mysterious. I didn't know we were supposed to sympathize with her so far. Where did you get that from? They're bringing her character along slowly. Doesn't bother me.

It's not hard to start a thread to discuss the comic. A little common courtesy would be nice, but I guess that's asking too much.
