Wow, I'm surprised that the show moved that fast. The whole Lori thing was not til the end of the comics and it was a different way. I like the route the show took. It is really sad, poor Rick! His scene was heart breaking. Karl's really starting to grow up, its sad that he has to toughen up at such a young age. I wonder what's next for the governor. I wish Andrea would listen to Michonne and leave that place!
I just started watching this online with season 3 a week ago. I thought it was alright, so I went back to catch up on season 2. I found it extremely dull and dragging, so I won't bother with watching season 1.
Michonne is very annoying. I understand she's the deadly silent type in the comics, but she does not translate well onscreen; her obvious and transparent disdain and suspicion of The Governor marks her as a fool. Why let someone who's clearly at an advantage know you're on to them? And such a sourpuss--I can sympathize with Andrea as to why she would rather remain in the creepily sunny town with the creepily sunny Governor, and bask in all its illusions, rather than spend another moment with Michonne.
I thought Andrew Lincoln is a dead ringer for a younger Ron Silver. His American accent is pretty impressive, I can hardly detect any trace of his English accent.
The Governor reminds me of Norm Macdonald-- creepy, unstable and arrogant.
Wow! the show has been so good lately, you´re on the edge of the sit the whole time cause you know something is gonna happen soon... not like other seasons where you have more boring episodes (granted, it´s been 4 eps so far but still...)
I like how Karl is growing up both in the show and in real life (the actor), like you can really see he´s different.
^ thanks Scott! I was thinking the same as koko, I did not remember anyone finding carols body. Poor Darryl! I'm really excited for what's next. Especially because of the phone call. I'm not impressed with michonne character, she is not what I expected althought she is very skilled! Posted via Mobile Device
^ Yes! Michonne's storyline turned around, I'm glad she finally made it to the group. Hopefully they can get to Glenn and Maggie before anything to bad happens to them. I did wish that Michonne had helped them and somehow disposed of Daryl's brother...
Very happy to see Carol! She has to stay around.
Oh and the phone call..that cannot be Lori, I'm thinking it came from the compound..unless there is another group out there.
Can't stand Michonne. She still comes off as an extremely cartoony character to me. If she were in a stylized pulp-fiction, comic-come-to-life series-- an animated version of The Walking Dead comic, then she would be very cool. But to be placed amongst characters that are very human, not stylized, she just doesn't fit.
Another thing I can't stand about the show is the manner in which the zombies approach our heroes: The zombies are portrayed as lumbering, grunting, moaning, groaning morons. They're as stealth and sleek as a herd of wilderbeasts. Yet, our heroes never hear them approaching until they're within range of fighting-- then the groans, etc are heard. Are we to expect the zombies are all stealth-like until they're within range of attack? Very annoying-- not as annoying as Michonne, but close.
