Hey guys, it's not the comic....get over it.


:roll:

Its amazing how no one ever tries to make a case for it being a spot on re-reaction of the comic yet someone always says this.

tv guide said ALOT of people get killed in march 31 final show for the season... wonder how many major people will get it .....


Please let Andrea be one of those people. I can't stand her character and she is a dumb ass bitch. She thinks she is such a badass yet she is a complete moron.

Almost a plot hole (but mostly not mentioned): Where was Carol during the whole episode? I was wondering if she'd disappeared (along with the random hitchhiker picked up from last episode) and that annoying baby (Lil Ass Kicker), but magically, she appeared for a reaction shot at the very, very end of the episode. Her usefullness in the storyline has ended.

They didn't pick up the random hitchhiker last episode. They left him behind and on their return trip saw he had been attacked and killed so they stopped to pick up his pack of supplies.

Everyone dies and the show becomes a documentary style program following zombies as they migrate across the country.

so?

just because people haven't made a case for an exact recreation doesn't limit the amount of whining I've read in this VERY thread about how the show isn't doing things like the comic. (and pssst....you're one of the worst offenders)

I'd watch it. I wonder if it becomes sorta like Life After Humans when the zombies run out of a food source.

Granted I only played the demo of Chime, but how the heck do you get shit on by Chime?

As someone who has read the comics, I'm a bit nervous about where the show goes after season 3. I think at this point, everybody (comic reader or not) knows what the finale is going to be...and an assumption that lots of people will die is a fairly safe bet. There are plenty of new characters to be introduced still...but I can't think of too many shows that wipe out the majority of their cast in one swoop. Now, that would be very true to the source material...but part of me wonders if it would actually hurt ratings. Even for characters people don't like...you get invested after multiple years of watching. Essentially starting over could lose some viewers. It definitely seems like something they need to be careful with.

This is how you can tell the writer are being handcuffed into forcing plot devices.....Michonne has only personally saved 4 or 5 peoples lives including blondie, informed them that their group was kidnapped, lead them to the governed, helped with the raid, then did a bunch of stuff to help afterward as well as being the one who invented the hole zombie-b-gone tactic...(which I am surprise no in the show cares about...)

It feels as though they forgot to air the episode where Michonne actually betrays them in some way.

........

They have also ruined the Governor because they showed his hand far to early and to too many people. The people in Ricks group arent suppose to know the governor is a mini hitler until 5 seconds before he shows up to kill everyone. As it stands now the group has first hand knowledge from about 10 sources that the governor bathes in blood every night.....yet they keep on with this..."maybe if we send him some cookies he will be cool?" You mean the guy who you know.....sexually assaulted maggie, tortured glenn, tried to kill daryle and merle by having them fight enough other to the death, tried to kill michonne, kept his dead daughter tied up in a room and fed her everyday as well as going to sleep with the charming gazes of 50 severed heads?

Its annoying to see rick constantly having to ponder how to make peace with him when he already knows that he is a nut job.


I believe Hershel mentioned all those and more about Michonne just at the end of the other episode. Also the episode before with Morgan was mostly all about how she is now part of the group. Carl even goes and it says it right at the end.

I feel they have gotten past the whole doubting Michonne thing - at least for a few weeks now and now she is part of the group.

As for Rick's group not knowing the Governor is evil until he storms the gates. I'm not sure if you are referencing the comics, because even though it has been years and years I'm pretty sure after all that happened in the town and with Tyrese everyone knew he was evil.

If you are just on about the show - I don't think anyone is showing that think they can bargain with him. Any character who talks pretty much says either kill him or get out of the prison before he shows up. Rick specifically says that he knows that if they give into the deal the Governor will just kill them all immediately afterward

I do agree with the lack of people in the town. It doesn't feel like there are too many people there, but maybe there are only like 40 or something. I do not know. They showed a good amount of people trying to leave the town after Rick's group was there and during the gladiator fights. Maybe there isn't that many and that is why the Governor even mentions it will come down to the last man, especially since Rick's group is much more battle hardened then his town folk.

As for the episode itself. It had some high tension moments with Rick and the Governor, but did feel a bit flat after last week's episode.

On an unrelated note - I wonder where they will go with this next season. Follow the comics a bit or do their own thing? I honestly haven't loved the comic over the last 2 or 3 years. Characters who I don't care about show up, do a little and then die while the core (well almost all the core) just keep doing there thing.

For those who subscribe to Rolling Stone, there's a great article in the March 28 issue on this very thing. In it, Robert Kirkman says, "The episodes are all about ramping up the conflict between the Governor and Rick. There are a few surprises in store as to who is going to be doing what on which side. Those reveals are going to be startling."

Oh, and exactly 27 characters die in the season finale.

"The reality is, nobody is safe. We're not going to slow things down, but if I had a criticism of Season Three, it would be that we didn't focus on character development. We're going to try to step it up a notch in that department."

He points to "Clear" which focused on a road trip. "We're going to focus on fewer characters per episode." Not coincidentally, Clear was written by new showrunner, Scott Gimple.

Seriously this is an fun idea, even if it's done as a spoof. Someone make this and get it narrated by David Attenborough while you're at it.

No way. Stephen Fry needs to narrate it.

That was my thought as well. Depending upon the tone it might be better with Morgan Freeman though.

I actually think Gilbert Godfried would be best. Would really instill the banality of existence and desire to die in such a world.

There goes half the TWD audience if thats legit, all though i wonder how that whole full episode was obtained already.

Poor Laurie Holden trying to explain her character because she probably knows they butchered the writing for her character, hopefully they show the deleted scenes that she was talking about.

That's been all over /b/ for the last week. Sucks, but it seems legit.


For this week: (Spoilers are needed for a show that aired the day before? Meanwhile this entire thread is full of posts the day after without spoiler tags? Hypocrisy)
