Well still a bit behind on this site but this week I will be caught up. Watched Episode 3 a couple days ago but just wasn’t near a computer to post this. They have introduced the governor and he is a white guy not Hispanic like the comic. All in all it seems pretty well done but a few things didn’t make sense to me.
In the comic the governor finds the guys in the crashed helicopter as well and gets rid of them but he never finds the solders on the road. In fact, in the comic the guys from the helicopter came from a city sort of far away. In the episode the governor and his men surround and kill the group of soldiers that are left. Which I guess makes sense, in one way but maybe not in another. This kind of brings up something I thought about in the last episode when Rick locks that one inmate in with walkers, even though he didn’t really do anything to them. Isn’t man power worth a lot in this world? It seems like assimilating the soldiers into Woodbury would make more sense then killing them and taking their stuff. Although it is always possible they would challenge the status quo.
Anyways Michonne is kind of disappointing so far. She is kind of surly but other then that there hasn’t been much to her. There is also the reappearance of Merle, Daryl’s brother or half brother.
Probably the biggest change from the comic which disappointed me was the Governer’s wall of heads. In the comic he kept his zombie daughter bound up in the spare room with her teeth removed. He would try to hold and kiss her, which was pretty gross and disturbing. In the television show he has his gallery of heads, which means what? He is a serial killer? Why would he keep the heads alive to look at him?
