kumanoki: I am curious to know... you know, we've seen a glipse of how deadly the Governor can be as a leader...but what about the town itself. Andrea and Michonne's tour guide kinda gave me the creeps with her half-answers. I wonder how Woodbury has skewed its society to fit into the mold the Governor has made?

Also, projecting ahead- Andrea and Michonne have no idea where the prison is. How will these two groups interact?


This is a world where after a YEAR the walking dead haven't been picked clean by insects, crows and other carrion birds, dessication, fungi, and so forth... and you're wondering about societal things? They can't even deal with decay in a half reasonable manner and you're worried about societal norms?

It's because the comic writers are, like most arts and crafts graduates... utterly farking clueless about the nuts and bolts of reality. So they make shiat up and say "the characters will act this way because I don't care about realism... I want to tell a _story_... it's an allegory for some bullshiat nonsense I dreamt up"

Seriously, in a few months the crow and insect population would have exploded populationwise. There would be monster SWARMS of flies and other insects that would land on these walking corpses in droves, lay their larva into their eyes and soft tissues, or strip them down to their bones through mass attacks... and in days leave them either a pile of bones, or blind and deaf due to the sense organs being consumed by larva (no sense of hearing if all the nerves, ear drums and whatnot are eaten by maggots or stuffed full of them as they feast on the soft tissues.

But no... we don't see anything like that going on... because the writers are hacks and can't handle the idea that maybe you could wait the zombie apocalypse out and start reclaiming some of civilization once rot and putrification take their toll on the zombies.

Seriously... I liked the show at first... but god damn it... some of the suspension of belief leaps you have to make are just too much.

bill4935: Good, people, good. Keep buying those Walking Dead Season DVD collections.

I figure as soon as Kirkman becomes a billionaire, he'll launch his own media empire, and that's when I can expect my Allen the Alien saturday morning cartoon to become reality. Zombies are just a dwindling fad. Cyclops ETs are the coming thing.

Wait, when did Fry, Leela, Kif and Zoidberg all have a love child together?

Shazam999: Who's T-Dogg?


You hardly ever see him. He's usually in the house.

TeddyRooseveltsMustache: The governor is a creepy motherfarker.


I'm more creeped out by the scientist nerd who inexplicably looks and sounds exactly like John Ritter but somehow isn't related to John Ritter.

/not really, I like it whenever that actor turns up

kumanoki: NeoCortex42: I briefly saw an image during a commercial break last night that was something like "Robert Kirkman's favorite changes for the TV show story". It was up only for a short while, and I wasn't paying close enough attention when it did come up. Did anybody happen to get a screencap?

Yeah, that was up for like 5 seconds. I didn't get all of it, as it was MSRP tax, tag, and title small.


TiVo is my friend. No screencap but decent memory.

5) Showing Morgans wife.
4) Sophia in the barn
3) Rick kills Shane.
2) Zombie herd at the farm.
1) Darryl Freaking Dixon

2, 3,4 may not be in the precise order.

OtherLittleGuy: The +101 internets comment by NeoCortex42 which inspired the headline (scroll down for the comic book visual).


Thanks. I wonder if I can stockpile internets in case of zombie apocalypse.

buntz: But all this aside, can we ALL agree that Chris Hardwick is a douche of the highest caliber and that Talking Dead show is pointless?

We can absolutely agree to that, yes.

I hope that whatever it is that the series returns to having coherent story lines where you can't tell when they handed off a plot to another writer. The movies were pretty bad across the board with some really shining spots.

/just wanted to vomit an opinion about Futurama
