Well the show keeps plodding along, and I keep watching it. Personally I find the non zombie scenes are done well enough so I really haven’t minded the relatively long lull in the action. The little bit of action there was was pretty brutal and pretty well done, although I’m not really sure why Daryl pulled that arrow out forward, seemed like it would have come out better going the other way. Maybe he could not reach it. Using the visions Daryl had of his brother in the preview was kind of a cheap trick in my opinion, but nothing new.
Watching the helicopters fire bomb Atlanta was a pretty big plus, in my opinion, they could have shown a bit more of that.
For those of you who are getting a bit bored with the lack of death and general zombie destruction, let me assure you, if the show continues to generally follow the comic book, there is plenty coming.
Perhaps one of the more disappointing change from the comic book has been Andrea. In the comic she is pretty much one of the most bad ass members of the group. In fact Andrea, Rick and Tryone (missing from the show, unless t-dog is supposed to be him, which would be pretty weak, since in the comic Tryone is a failed professional football player who is huge, and kind of excels at destroying zombies with hand tools) are pretty much the soldiers of the group. In the comic Andrea has a huge aptitude for shooting rifles and is the group’s sniper, who often supports the others from a distance. In the show she seems kind of scared/depressed and trying to prove herself constantly. In the comic she is aggressive , self confident and people look to her for protection. If this is the televisions version of her, I’m sort of wondering how crappy they will make Michone.
Scott Wilson continues to play a good Herschel in my opinion, pretty much right out of the comic.
Again the show is was entertaining and pretty well done, I would say I am looking forward to next week’s episode.
Although at this point in the comic little Carl had already killed several zombies and at least one person.
