On this week’s episode of The Walking Dead, Woodbury prepares for war while Andrea tries to broker a peace deal.
I'm just amazed at how the writers for this show seems to miss awesome plot twists. The supposed lesbian relationship between Andrea and Michonne is poorly handled. I mean comeon, the fact that they didn't use the rape scene from the graphic novel to humanise Michonne in the eyes of the viewers was a missed opportunity, instead Michonne just grumbles along. Instead, the fury that she felt for what the governor did to her has been replaced with misplaced jealousy and a "feeling". Speaking of Michonne, can we at least get a black character on this show that says more than a few words? And what about Tyrese, the guy is supposed to be an integral part of the events in the comic, and instead that character has been squandered.
You want it to be just like the comics then? What would be the point of the show then?
Erm, to be an adaptation of the comics? Being someone of who was reading the comics prior to the shows existence, I welcome new directions in regards to story, but if they insist on utilising characters from the books, they should do so loyally.
When Shane survived as far in as the second season, I was thrilled. I actually thought using him as a counterpoint in the Rick/Laurie relationship was an excellent idea. I also thought the inclusion of Daryl was good, but as the TV-series has pushed on, and the focus shifted to fan-favourites Daryl and Rick, the other characters started to disappear into a the background. It's not that I want it to follow the comic, but I'd like to see character fleshed out more, especially the black characters. And before you say, oh Billy you must be black, I'm not, but it annoys me when interesting characters aren't given time to shine. Michonne being one of them. The funny thing is, that the role that Daryl has now is what Michonne should have had. And now with Merle joining the gang (instead of being the Governor's bulldog), Walking Dead just feels weak. And let's not even start with the Governor.... Ugh! So much to say on this...
I started reading the comics and I seriously can't imagine how those who follow the story since the beginning must feel after watching this.... Thing. I thought it was a good series but then it became OK, but now it's just awful at times. As mentioned above, MANY incredible plot twists have been skipped and turned into something else. Andrea's character isn't half of what she's supposed to be, additional members of the group who were killed long ago weren't even killed they way they were in the comics let alone not even matching the timeframe(?) Yesterday I lost 40 minutes of my life watching the latest episode, I still watch it because I truly hope and believe that they can somehow turn this around and make it better. They can do better than this, season one was pretty much on the spot, unlike this one with its up and down beating-around-the-bush plot. Excuse my English
Oh my gosh, I LOVE WALKING DEAD.
I haven't read of the comics and I enjoyed the last episode of the walking dead. Can't wait for next week's episode. Also I think AMC will milk the walking dead to death by doing a reboot of the series a few years from now that follows the comic book like white on rice to please the fans who are complaining.
I'm glad others have enjoyed it, I'll give you some advice.. don't read the comics until they're done with the series, you'll enjoy it more for sure. Can't wait for next episode hehe, hopefully things will get crazy :)
Not really true, I've read the comics up to about chapter 100 and truly still enjoy the show thoroughly, so many differences and so many similarities as well make it hard to predict and more enjoyable IMO. Take for instance the scene with Maggie and The Governor, given what happened in the comics (with another character though), and the fact that they have changed the roles of the characters from comics to TVshow before, it was a really chilling scene amplified for those who read the comics and knew what could happen, more than people who just watch the show and expect a certain outcome, even with the tension.
