im with natty on the pacing. that might be my only gripe and that's saying something.

i still avoid the comic as i want to be surprised and remove any preconcieved notions. this also allows kirkman to do what he wants and not be bound by the pages of the very comic he created. creative license gets turned inside out if you will.

i think the prison theme gets wrapped up with a couple of loose ends. and just one main person getting offed.

and not seen one nano second of Game of Thrones.

walking dead is hands down the best comic series i've ever read, after the first 20 or so issues. they're pretty bad in comparison.

the show is only faithful to the comics as far as the basic backbone of the plot. there is a lot that's changed, and honestly the comic is way better at this point. not comparing issue 107 to the current point in the show, but the relative points in the series. issues 30-40ish i think. maybe the 50s. been a long time since i read them.

i like how they change some people's deaths. i'm especially glad they kept shane around through the farm instead of killing him off long before they got there. how they kill lori on the show goes a long way towards establishing carl's character in other ways, ways they probably can't pull off on the show.

Spoiler


so they're both very rewarding experiences. i really do hope the show can manage the awesomeness that the comic has. if it does, it will be the best television ever.

as far as earlier comments about an "end game", it wouldn't surprise me if zombies are eventually all but wiped out and the plot turns into a mad max style apocalypse storyline. imo that's what kirkman ultimately envisioned for the series. the zombies are just the prologue to a much larger story about what happens when civilization collapses and groups start vying for power.

also yeah not happy with an entire episode about andrea and the guv'nah but at least it was well done. very hitchock in its execution, and i can dig that, even though it was too damn predictable. some of those tools laid out in the chamber were horrifying.

I agree with PSC... Zombies are just a plot device at this point... especially in the comics (see the newest character introduction in the comics)... It is more about life after the world the survivors knew ended...

It doesn't matter anymore who you were or what you were before... Right now, you're a survivor... and your every waking moment pretty much involves continuing to survive.

This has a strong parallel with other fiction I love... like GoT even... A tagline from that is "In the Game of Thrones you win or you die." Change "Game of Thrones" with "fight for survival" and you have a recipe for great storytelling just like TWD has. It beckons the inner fight/flight response in us all... even though it is a made up fictional world...

Man :unsure:

Illogical as it sounds, in some ways that ending was more emotional than Lori's death.

True. Dale might be a better comparison.

Loved how he went out fighting though.

Spoilers for tonight's episode if you haven't seen it

Im still really enjoying the show, but the deaths don't have the emotional impact they once did. Just think they may have over done them or relied to much on them. Thats really disappointing considering tonight's should've been really impactful. All things considered it was necessary and still good, just no longer the "Whoa.." factor it once had.

And because it deserves to be said, Norman Reedus is just a phenomenal actor.
