Wow. Walking Dead showrunner has a more revolving door than Al Qaeda leader #2.

If the Governor storyline is resolved by the end of the season, there's still a chance that she could have an off season improvement like Carl. Since this season started, no one tells Carl to stay in the house.

She's always been pretty useless, it was just covered up by Lori and Carl's useless. Lori...well, I don't want to spoil it, and Carl has become a badass, so her terribleness has come to the forefront.

She shot Daryl for god's sake.

They should just get Hardwick to go full Seacrest and host "TWD's Next Showrunner".

FTFA: "Scott has been an essential part of this show since he came aboard at the very beginning of season two."

He comes on beginning of season 2. Season 2 turns out to be crappy crap. Correlation != causation, but its a damn coincidence.

mitchcumstein1: Andrea is still the worst.


Her stupidity is the driving force behind the show right now. Everything could be resolved if she actually thought in a rational way.  The Governor is obviously evil and even though she knows he has lied, kept her from leaving, tried to kill her friends, and doesn't really care about the town anymore, she thinks he's an OK guy. She's also had numerousopportunities to get rid of him. Even Rick, who is going crazy, has more rational thoughts than Andrea.

Not to say this hasn't been helped by Michonne not saying a damn word to anyone. All she had to do was speak up right away and everyone would have known everything.

I expect a complete reworking to include space aliens with the new guy writing things to be 'edgy'. Also, more shakycam. Plot will erode to each character yelling advertisement catch phrases at each other while randomly shooting.

I don't think it is that she thinks he is an ok guy, I think she likes that fact that she is Queen of Woodberry, and is torn between giving up her position of power there and returning to Ricks group and just being on of the group.

Nah, like I said, she has had plenty of chances to get rid of him and do it in a way that she could stay in charge. She is just smitten with him because she still thinks he is doing something good. And she is also a stupid person.

It was fairly painful to see her schtick when she made it back to the prison.  She gets all huffy, "Well the Governor told ME that you guys shot first and it is TOTALLY NEWS to me that the Governor could be a bad guy after kidnapping and torturing Glen a mere 48 hours ago."

It was that moment that I could no longer suspend disbelief for this show.  No one would would put up with this shiat from her.  This on top of all the other crap from last season.  Pussy can't be THAT valuable of a commodity even in the zombie apocalypse.

Actually, I don't know if he's that evil, just driven crazy by happenstance interactions with members of Rick's crew. In the comics he was an evil fark. But in the show the worst he did was mowing down that national guard team, which thinking purely tactically was a good move (they were disheveled, scared and helpless. Take their shiate and leave them behind, less one of them recuperate and challenge you later. Dog eat dog.). He could have let Michonne go unmolested,but think about the debate between Rick and Shane about letting Randall go and possibly revealing the location of their camp. The Gov was more on the Shane side of the fence.  To the people of Woodbury, Rick and his group by extension seem like complete psychos and I can see why. Andrea could absolutely clear it all up by holding a town hall meeting before or after killing the Gov, but since she is a horrible human being, I can't see that happening. Andrea is so awesome in the comics, but on the show I want her to die twice. I want her to get beaten and stabbed and left to die slowly, then reanimate and have her dead head sit on a pike, blinking and being completely retarded for all of eternity. That's how much I hate her (I actually like the actress in other roles, believe it or not).

No it wasn't; on a purely tactical level it was stupid. Trained soldiers would been a big asset to Woodbury and they were certainly willing to join. He killed them because if a bunch of military guys who had demonstrated competence by surviving outside of a settlement joined up, people might start to look to them to lead. He cared more about being king of the hill than about the well-being of his people or about the lives of a half dozen soldiers.

I want her to get pushed off a cliff by the Governor himself, and then while falling as she contemplates that horrible betrayal she gets swooped up by Michonne on a rope who then swings her to a higher cliff and drops her again

Nah, she just is incapable of living outside civilization. There was a really good analysis of her character in the last WD thread.

so much this. after a first half of season three that was pretty epic (by TWD show standards), the first three episodes of the second half have sucked balls.

the writing is just loaded with deus ex machina. characters are not just irrational, but inconsistent. i spend more time trying to figure out why in the sweet fark people are acting the way they are shown instead of getting caught in the action or myriad moral dillemas they should be facing.

if you want to go all deus ex, piss off with the drama and just give me some hot zombie action. but if you insist on the drama, it has to be character driven to be even remotely engaging.

Andrea is a great character.  If everyone did what they're "supposed to", they would all be living in fortified communities like Woodbury, but without the heads in tanks, bum fights, and megalomania.  They would spend their days farming and systematically expanding the safe zone while stripping everything they can from the remnants of society.  Everyone would pitch in for the betterment of the community, and the leaders would rule through necessity instead of insanity.  When they encounter a new group, they would see it as a blessing and pool their resources.  What would be the point in watching that?

That said, I'm hoping for a major, major shakeup soon.  Since Rick, Michonne, and Carl are going out for supplies, it's time for everyone at the prison to die.  Tyrese can be the sole survivor of an overrun woodbury, and the four of them find a completely new batch of survivors to worry about/squabble with.

No one wants to talk about the elephant in the room though, as in what the hell is going to happen to the baby? They cannot keep something like that in the show and expect it to last. Tedium will set in. I'm telling you, that baby and quite a few others are not living past this season and the last few episodes are going to be painful to watch.

Except when they kill Andrea, we'll cheer that

Scott M. Gimple's writer credits on Walking Dead according to IMDB:
- S2: Save the Last One (Shane and Otis' medical supply run)
- S2: Pretty Much Dead Already (Rick tries to do things Hershel's way, Shane decides it's time to wipe out the barn walkers)
- S2: 18 Miles Out (In my opinion the best S2 episode, Rick and Shane try to drop Randal in some small town, a brawl ensues, wrenches are thrown)
- S3: Hounded (Merle and his crew hunt Michonne, Rick answers the phone)
- S3: This Sorrowful Life (unaired, unknown. 2nd last episode of season three)

Overall these were all episodes that balanced drama and character development with intense action scenarios. His season 2 episodes were also some of the strongest Shane episodes since "Tell It to the Frogs". I think the way he handled Shane could easily parallel to an unhinged/recovering mental stability Rick in season 4. If we're lucky he'll stay consistent and stick around for the season to follow as well. If we're really lucky the show will wrap up well with 6-7 seasons and not rot and keep shambling on like... some kind of simile.

/Oh, and he was a staff writer on Pepper Ann
//I'm sure that helps

Andrea is not a dumbass...as in, I'm not aware my governor boyfriend is a creepy lunatic...
I think Andrea's biggest fault...and the reason she's earning hate from Farkers and critics alike is that she's still...despite her bad-assery, not able to handle this zombie world.
Not at all.
It needs to be turned off...it needs to be at a distance...
At least from Andrea.
Think about it...she wanted to "opt out" at the CDC...after she lost her sister...
She was totally fine and understanding about the little blonde wanting to kill herself back at the farm.
That's why she's attracted to these crazy, bad ass types...they're more than willing to go to war...
They provide, in her eyes, safety...and most of all, NORMALCY. An "everyday" life...NO ZOMBIES. Remember, she was of the mindset that Shane provided safety at the farm, not Rick.
Remember, when she was out in the field with Michonne, she fell sick...nearly helpless...
When the herd came through and she got seperated from the group...what happens? She almost farkin dies.
Andrea is suited and bad ass enough to kill a zombie or two here and there...on a limited basis...
But if it doesn't go away, if she can't feel "normal" at the end of the day...I think she'd rather be dead.
The prison, despite having her friends there, is a god-awful place...no running water, no electricity, surrounded by visible zombies...it's a constant reminder that the world is farked and she can't handle that.
The governor provides streets to walk through, running water, electricity...food, a library...
Sure, he strolls out the occasional zombie for fight games...but it's occasional...Andrea can handle occasional horror and misery...but not everyday.
She's doing what she's doing and acting how she's acting out of self-preservation, to keep mental stability.
Said it before...saying it again...

Actually, it's the most valuable commodity.  Fertile women are the most important people in this world, so much so that you would think the women would band together and set up a matriarchy.  But I digress.  In the end, it's simple population biology.  Women are the limiting factor in regrowing the population, so any society that wants to survive more than a couple of generations needs as many women as they can get.  Even if those women are Andrea and Lori.

Women hate each other. The only way a matriarchy works is without the presence of a man.  As soon as dick enters the picture, you've got Whori situations (one hoe monopolizing all available males, plural, for her own personal safety fk everyone else) and Mandrea situations (one hoe monopolozing the single most Macchiavellian male for her own personal safety fk everyone else) all over the place.

Dick ruins everything.

Mohammed would never be remembered if Aisha had been the first wife, instead of Khadijah.  I'm just saying.

There's more to woman than baby-making.  Even the Guv kicked Rowan out of his bed (and the silly ass archeress Haylee never made it there) for Andrea.

(Off topic, Carol and Axel made a way cuter couple than the Carol/Daryl shiat being forced down our throats.  Carol/Daryl always seems forced.  Carol and Axel just seemed more natural, and Carol didn't have to try hard to be with a man who appreciated her just as she was and didn't push her away but pursued her without wanting to beat her, dominate her, belittle her or dismiss her.  Or fear her (because face it, Daryl fears the shiat out of Carol).  Why'd they have to kil Axel?)

Also it seems that anybody who wants to leave Woodbury is hunted down and killed once they leave in case that they do manage to find some sort of functioning offical government that might come and rescue everybody and end the Governor's little kingdom.
