Oh man I would SO love to see a singing episode of TWD. They could have a row of zombies doing a kick-line, then 2/3 of the way down one of the zombies would kick is leg clean off and then do a face plant.

Comedy gold.

Huck Chaser: I'm still amazing people continued watching TWD after the first season's finale. That was one of the most laughably bad hours of TV I've ever seen.

how so? just interested in why you think so, because in all honesty, the only time the show equaled the comic was the first 2 episodes (which were pretty much the comic brought to life) and the episode when Lori dies (all the prison stuff did exceed the comic, Andrew Lincoln was amazing) but the Woodbury crap really drug the ep. down a bit.


Because comic books don't scare the shiat out of you.

The zombie in the comic say's "gar" and you turn the page. There is no emotional attachment to these comic people. They're not bad. They're just drawn that way.

The zombie in the show says "gar" and there is blood and gore and fighting and action and drama.

Put another way, I'm not a comic book guy, and find all of them boring as hell, and I've tried to like them (I really really have...) but I've found the movies are always better. They're more exciting, more scary, and more emotionally involved than anything that can be drawn.


Yes, the comic is a "farking comic book", but it is pretty much an incredible ride start to finish and is the only comic I can really think of that 104 issues in is just one long story (each issue picks up exactly where the last one left off).


I don't find that compelling. I like long story arcs, but when I find myself flipping over dozens of pages just to get to the conclusion, that means that I'm not really engaged with how that arc is playing out. It's like fast forwarding through a recorded video to get to the good parts.

Dude... you must not watch that much TV.

//TWD is like sex or pizza.... even when it's bad, it's still pretty good


I didn't even see this when I made the picture; great minds think alike.

Both have characters I'd like to shoot in the face.


SPOILER!

Skinny McWhinerbiatch is dead now, so I'm not sure who on TWD I'd like to shoot in the face any more.

"Amazed," not "amazing." Though I am amazing.

justtray: Girion47: That they're both incredibly boring?

I have a lot of gripes with the walking dead TV adaptation, but that isn't one of them.

I hate the entire concept of Glee, 90210 mixed with American Idol, but calling it boring is far down on my list.


I watch it because my wife watches it. I'm kind of curious what the governor is doing, but I can't seem to care about any of the people in the prison or the blonde. I like the black chick but that's because she also seems annoyed by the slow pace and stupidity of the characters around her.
