Just kill Andrea, please.

Prediction:  Andrea becomes pregnant with the Governor's zombie baby.

As crazy as Rick was in the comics (and he was pretty damn crazy), he was mostly able to keep that shiat to himself.

Television-Rick is going nuts right in front of everybody and making it tough to believe that everybody should still look to him as a leader.

This show just sucks now. Maybe I should keep a list of characters they've totally ruined;

Dale
Lori (kind of sucked in the comic too)
Andrea
The Governor
Tyrese*
Rick*

* because they're trying to ruin them

It's hard to say the show has been ruined given the massive ratings, but I do wonder if the overall quality is suffering from the turnover in showrunners.  Darabont was doing some really interesting and innovative things in the first season until interference from AMC led to the weaknesses of season 2.  Mazzara got the show back on track but in the process made it more formulaic.  I have no idea what the next guy is going to do, but I fear it's going to end up like the comics where it becomes so nihilistic that the audience just gets tired of it.  It seems they write themselves into corners with characters and then take the easy way out by killing them off.  Still love the show, but I wonder how much more staying power it has after this season.

I don't think they've totally ruined the Governor.  I think the show version of him is fine.  Tyreese hasn't been around long enough to say whether or not the show version is worse/better than the comic version.

Andrea is the worst adaptation from the comic.  I guess some of her traits shifted towards Carol, but it still would have been nice to have the badass sniper from the comic.

The Governor in the comics was too much of a sadistic Snidely Whiplash.  I think they've done a much better job with the show version.  They ruined Lori though.  After last season, they had no choice but to kill the character because it was impossible to take her seriously anymore.

Comic Lori wasn't that much better.  Offing her in the comic was just as necessary.

Looks like Talking Dead tonight is going to feature Kirkman as a guest.  Could be interesting.  Also, the guy that plays Alcide on True Blood.  So, there's that, I guess.

I like the show-related guests on Talking Dead, but could do without some of the random other people.

I haven't read the books, so the only frame of reference I have is the show--which is so far a good show.  So, pardon me if this ruffles feathers but a possible rest of the season based on the show dynamics so far:

Feeling like he's totally losing it goes into exile, perhaps even self-imposed.

static1.businessinsider.com

Meet the new ever-suffering voice of reason, now with less Carl-centered hand-wrining.

Guess who finds Rick and helps him come back from insanity and certain death.

zombieresearchsociety.com

"Hey guys."

wac.450f.edgecastcdn.net

"Hey Daryl.  What happened to Merle?"

zombieresearchsociety.com

"He didn't make it through the expository subplot about redemption and family. How's Glenn doing? His card should be just about punched at this point."

t2.gstatic.com

"Oh, sh*t."

www.pinkraygun.com

"Oh sh*t, I let myself become annoying, didn't I?  Just give me a nice melodramatic send-off, okay?"


Or something like that.

No. I think he's trolling.

Daryl Dixon is a fictional character from the American television series The Walking Dead, portrayed by Norman Reedus. He is an original character and has no comic counterpart.
Same for Merle.

No, not yet. She's pretty awesome in the comic, and I'm hoping they do the same on the TV series.

Tyrese should be the new leader, while Rick recuperates.
Maybe Tyrese and Merle can have the T-Dog/Merle showdown we were cheated out of in the fall.

Andrea is dead to me.

Glenn needs to get his act together, as well.  Getting constant access to pussy ruined his character.

Morgan needs to come back so Carl and Duane can trade bad-ass survival stories.

Morgan's wife can be the semi-intelligent zombie every zombie story leads up to.Morgan can pull her teeth out for a less creepy version of what happened in the comics with the Governor and his niece.

Carol needs to continue on her quiet trajectory of being the bad ass in the background, the dark horse.

Hershel needs to keep being cool old man.

Milton needs to join the prison, and find true love with that boy in Tyrese's group.  Or the dad.  Either or. We need a homo couple to root for.  No, I'm not kidding.

Schubert needs to follow his heart and rescue his true love Michonne from Rick's continued bad treatment of her (come on, locking her in her own cell *still*? total bullshiat).  And then Tyrese and Schubert can have uneasy alpha male scenes while the audience tries to guess who's going to be The Next N To Die.

* because they're trying to ruin them


Per what I implied earlier (and this has nothing to do with the comics):

Dale:

t3.gstatic.com

Made this face one too many times on his long spiral into complete uselessness.
Annoying scale-- 10  Result:  Horrible death.

Lori:

media.comicvine.com

Fate was sealed from this exact point, anyway, but expertise in repeatedly losing her child without having to face any outraged judgment was the big loud boring cherry on top.
Annoyance scale--9 (-1 for realistic and accessible hotness) Result:  Gut wrenchingly horrific death


Andrea:

cdn2.mamapop.com

Destructively poor taste in men.

Annoyance level 2 (sexiness, badassery almost negates tiresome behavior) Result: still ticking


The Governor:

wac.450f.edgecastcdn.net

"What the f*ck am I doing on this list, gooberboy?"

Annoyance level--0 Solid villain Result--still kickin

static1.businessinsider.com

"What the governor said."
Annoyance level-- -10.  Seriously man. The guy who brought us Cutty Wise is untouchable.


Rick:

juliekenner.com

"My annoying wife's dead, I killed my best friend, my little brat turned into a sociopathic force of death, I sawed that judgmental veterinarian's foot off, and I kept Glenn alive just long enough to outstay his welcome.  WTF can you possibly want from me?"

I have heard that the show has been consistently and dramatically different than the books, which makes a discussion of them moot.  I'm not sure how things worked in them, but it is apparent that in the televised Walking Dead universe, life expectancy is directly related to boring screentime, and annoyance level is directly related to the brutality involved in killing said character off.  If that's not a show that cares about its audience, I don't know what is.
