NeoCortex42: The Banana Thug: NeoCortex42: I hope they don't go the comic route with Negan. Issue #100 was basically "It's out hundredth issue, let's due something SHOCKING."

Agreed. #100 and #104 both border on absurd. By that point, I would be okay if the show takes a total departure from the comic, right around when the group reaches Arlington. **SPOILER** A lot of the stuff gets very repetitive after that point - "Oh look here's a safe place, let's stay here and reinforce it! Oh noes, we're overrun! Evacuate, repeat again." The show should target for about 6 seasons, with a tie-up-all-loose-ends conclusion about why we're all infected and how.

I don't think the TV show needs to end with tying up loose ends. My ideal way for the show to end is one of two ways:
1) Over the course of the next few seasons, Rick's group goes through the cycle of finding a possible safe haven only to have it overrun two times after the prison. The finale has everybody currently in the group, except Rick and Carl, killed off. The show then shows Rick and Carl walking down a desolate road together into the sunset, only to repeat the cycle all over again. Fade to black.

2) Carl dies in one of the last few episodes, followed by Rick in the finale. The show ends with Rick coming back as a walker and wondering around.

The show should end emphasizing the point that there are not always answers and the only sure thing is that you're never really safe in the zombie apocalypse.


The show should end with Rick and Carl sitting in a restaurant. They're road-weary and have stopped to eat from their dwindling supplies. Rick is flipping through the table-top juke box. Don't Stop Believin' plays in the background. The bell on the door jingles. Fade to black.

The Banana Thug: KellyX: [images2.wikia.nocookie.net image 250x327]

I'm still hoping they bring Morgan back, I also like that actor.

*****SPOILER ALERT*****


In the comics, they do come across the character again, when Rick visits his hometown on an errand and checks on Morgan. If the show follows suit, I'd guess it would happen around the beginning of season 5? Season 4 is possible, seeing how much ground they've covered already this season.


I may be way off, but I could have sworn during a season preview clip they showed a reunion of Rick and Morgan. Or maybe I completely made that up in my head. Damn, the phone is ringing now...

#100 pissed me off to no end. I remember there were rumors that #100 would have the ultimate shocker of Rick being the one who died...and the previous issue covers let you to believe it could be Andrea.

I bet like having the Gov cutting off Rick's arm, Kirkman will regret what he did in #100.

Budgetary reasons preclude Ricks arm from being chopped off.


Well it's grown back a couple times. Issue 43 and one of the late 90s I believe.

The Banana Thug: FinFangFark: The Banana Thug: GlobalStrategic MapleSyrup Reserve: I'm just going to come out and address that Oscar wasn't in the comic. You're thinking Dexter and between Tomas and Andrew they pretty much covered his part.

If they can just skip **that** part of the comic for the show... I'd be okay with it. Something tells me they won't, because those characters are still alive and yet not an integral part of the main group. That was one of the four most disturbing moments in the comic, the other three being issue #100, the comic version of how Lori died, and what might happen in the very next episode at Woodsbury.

let's not forget the really odd sequence with Jim's twins, and what happened. But that really didn't bother me as the moments you've mentioned...I kinda felt that was a justified story based on all the trauma the kids are going through.

Oh yea, Jim's twins... That wasn't so much as a sickening stomach-punch as it was a "what the farkity fark!" moment for me.

You know how comics kill off superheroes and bring them back to life to bring in additional revenues every few months? Well, Kirkman does that by coming up with "what horrible shiat can I come up with for these characters for no good reason?" Issue #100 was a perfect example of that.


I keep nitpicking but they were Allen and Donna's kids. I get the feeling all this Tyreese-rumour stirring is just a massive trolling when they throw in mopey Allen, prudish Donna and two children with no relevance until the cast needed thinning again.

Saiga410: that bosnian sniper: so I'd tag Morgan's return in early season 4 personally. Which, as a corollary, means New T-Dog's life span is six, maybe eight, more episodes.

Sadly you are probably right. Though what does Morgan's son do to the only one black male secondary level character rule?


Well, a kid only counts as half, right? So we get 3/5 + (3/5)/2. So that's like one if we use old-timey math, right?

Craptastic: The Banana Thug: Great episode. But don't think I can stomach the next one. We'll see.

And Michonne following the zombies to the prison after masking her human smell was an excellent resolution to what could've been a glaring plothole.

To me, that in itself is a plothole. We humans don't really have a great sense of smell to begin with when compared to other members of the animal kingdom. And these zombies are constantly decaying. Why would a decaying zombie have a great sense of smell? Seems like they wouldn't be smell anything other than their own stench.

I liked the way Shawn of the Dead handled it better. Just shamble around everywhere and don't speak, because zombies are stupid creatures.


Plot hole, that phrase I do think it means what you think it means.

Humans may not have a great olfactory sense, but we can smell very strong odors, such as rotting, decaying flesh and viscera.

Walkers obviously have some degree of brain function, and since living things do not smell like themselves, its not unreasonable that they have learned to use their sense of smell to help distinguish targets.

A better question I've yet to see a satisfactory answer to (in anything from the zombie genre) is why simple-minded creatures are compelled to act cooperatively, and don't try to eat each other.

/aside from the fact that it would be the shortest zombie uprising ever.

She's not a great conversationalist. Her brooding, grunting hyper paranoid shiat doesn't make her the ideal dinner party guest. Now, we'll probably have half an episode of her deciding if she can trust Rick and gang. Ugh. The governor is far more interesting. Tapping Andrea was nice work.

Michonne's got to go. Throw her in a biter pit with a dinner fork for a weapon. Great fun.

I can see her and Daryl as being the ultimate bad-ass zombie hunter group.


Daryl will find out how much of a badass she is, and get the hots for her. This will make Carol mad, and we will have three episodes of Carol pouting about it. Daryl and M will hook up, just before he reunites with Merle, who as we know is a virulent racist. This will lead to three more episodes of Daryl and Merle fighting over her.

Done.

Hey, AMC can only tackle so many social predjudices in one show.

I mean, they already expect us to believe the black guy was in prison. Any more groundbreaking characterizations like that and they might as well have him shoot lasers out of his eyes.
