The Walking Dead

this is a dumb show and i feel dumber everytime i finish an episode. shows i would never watch like how i met your mother and shit have better characterisation than this. literally the only person with sense or continuity is daryl. everyone else does what the plot requires of them. it pisses me off that people that are into this show would write off a show like lost, which for all its faults, had the best grasp on characters i've seen on a non-cable show.

even when they did that annoying thing on lost of characters not sharing information (like michonne this episode not mentioning merle's name or that he mentioned having a brother at the prison), shit like her not "asking for help" when she clearly wanted it is ridiculous. that whole episode coulda been a henry gale-type situation where they figure out if michonne is a plant from woodbury or if she's being truthful, but because of how badly they executed what could have been a tense season 2, they just act overly hostile and then suddenly inviting when they go to woodbury 5 minutes later. they're totally brushing past any depth because they know how bad they are at it, but i'd like to see it at least in small doses, like daryl's speech the other week.

fuck, i can't quit this show.

i feel the same way. if any of the characters died next episode i wouldn't really care. no character development at all. show is overrated as fuck. it has probably one of the most interesting premises on tv but the execution sucks.

i actually gotta agree. the zombie televisions how hasn't been done this well before, but the longer this show goes on, the more lack of character development i see and it's starting to get old. the beginning of this season was intense because it was a new setting, but during the middle everyone is settled in, it seems like much hasn't happened at all. I feel this show would be 10x better if they had 60 minutes per episode rather than 40

but like you said, i still can't stop watching lol

If you read the comics. You'll see why so many people come and go so fast.

But in the comics there is characterization. Everyone in the show is just a caricature of themselves. Michonne is the brooding girl with a mysterious past. We get it. Daryl shoots a cross bow. We get it. Andrea is a whore. We get it. Maggie and Glenn are in love. We get it.

They force feed us the same thing every week. The only character who has developed from the first episode is Rick. He's the only one who has changed. Everyone else is EXACTLY the same as they were in earlier episodes.

In the comics, I cared when people died. When Lori died in the comics, I felt it. When she died in the show? Meh.

you dont think daryl's character has developed? him and rick got a bromance going on now and will be tested when the confrontation between him and merle comes up.

as far as glenn...he went from a whimpy pizza delivery boy to getting beaten and about to take a bullet for team rick so that the governer wouldnt know where the prison is.

andrea backtracked from past seasons..she was pretty badass last season killing walkers and now she goes back to becoming a helpless woman which annoys the crap out of me and makes me hate her.

michonne...i can go w/o the facial expressions. lol. but that's her character. badass woman w/ a sword w/ no remorse. this is her first season so i'll give her a pass until next season.

i used to hate carl but as soon as he capped his mom, has gained my respect.

lori was annoying and was the most hated. people thought she would be one of the main characters cuz she's rick's wife and would give birth w/ no issues. but for her to go out the way she did...it was a sad.

she's an idiot for having the baby to begin with

man you guys suck lol. i feel like this show has great character development. think of all the characters when first introduced to now.

Rick went from being a cop to him killing people now he has had to adapt to the zombie world

Glenn for sure became a real nigga since it started. him headbutting merle and not giving up his camp should really show that. and that zombie 1v1 scene. and hes getting his fuck on. respect.

even maggie has changed since we seen her.

Herschel developed alot.

andrea is still a weak minded basic bitch who sways back and forth depending who her friends are at the time

and its a zombie scenario. people die quick.

daryl went from being a mean ass redneck to a caring ass redneck

People love to hate this show just because it's popular. I saw on another forum people were actually arguing over the direction abandoned cars were facing...if that's the kind of shit you focus on, then how could you ever enjoy a show?

i'm the best mayne, i deed it

People hate on it because it's drivel. It's entertaining, but only if you ignore 75% of what goes on. I watched TWD instead of BE on Sunday, immediately regretted that after watch Boardwalk last night.

Boardwalk Empire is on an entirely different level, I don't think it's even fair to compare the two. It's like saying you watched The Big Bang Theory instead of Breaking Bad and immediately regretted it. At the end of the day, this is a comic book adapted for television, it's not an organized crime series based on true events on HBO.

0_o lol @ that level of reaching..

This show is aight, but the game does a better of job of executing this "universe" and way people interact.

Don't badmind me.

i wish shane was still alive. dude was a savage when it came to killing and he wouldve been badass against woodbury.

They promised we would learn more about T-Dog this season and those fucks lied. They made his character pretty much pointless. I honestly thought that token shit was dead in Hollywood... smh
November 28, 2012 @ 00:45:23
lol we learned after he died (from glenn) that he was saving people before the show started

also another vote for the game being what fans of the comics that dislike a lot of the show want. the game perfectly captures the mood/deep characters/"what would you do in this scenario"-ness of the comics. i even prefer the game to the comics.

i'm gonna go ahead and say i don't think any of the character changes are consistent. most of the changes happen between seasons. daryl is merle but sober in season 1 but gets softened up for s2. rick is an aloof good guy in one scene and ready to kill any and everyone threatening his or his family's safety in the next. glenn is a coward when faced with merle last week but brave enough to withstand torture this week.

i like daryl tho. idk.
November 28, 2012 @ 01:22:49
Can't wait for next week's episode, things are definitely about to go down. I'm predicting a few characters not making it pass the next episode but it should open the doors to introduce new ones.

I don't think he would've been okay with the Governor, haha.

As usual, I agree. I think that's what is wrong with the show. Even when there is "character development" it kind of just happens. You're right in that a lot of what people perceive as character changes happened in between seasons. Very easy cop out.

Just caught up on this and Glenn is that nigga. He went from a caterpillar to a butterfly. Killing zombies, taking beatings like it's nothing and got Maggie. I hope he and Maggie don't die though.

T-Dog though...why'd he have to be named that? Lol...RIP.
