Behind on the site again, sorry about that. This week’s episode was OK not really great or bad. Michonne got some screen time, killing off her pursuers. They are trying to make Michonne as bad ass as she was in the comic, but it still hasn’t really grabbed me. She is a favorite in the comic but so far kind of shallow in the show. The sword action looked pretty good though
The show had the scene where Rick is talking on the phone to dead people, but it didn’t really grab me. In the show there was kind of lead up of watching Rick get crazy then there comes the phone call. There was also kind of setup where he tells Herschel he will wait for the call alone. In the comic Laurie died and Rick and Carl are hiding by themselves in an abandoned house, and he gets the call. There is no one around to hide the call from or tell about the call. The call comes from way out of left field and when you realize it’s Laurie it was pretty chilling. In the show it was “Meh” for me, maybe creepier for someone who didn’t know what was coming.
There was more development between Andrea and Governor, getting drunk and sleeping together. There is a scene were I thought they were introducing a new character, the girl archer on the wall, but not sure. Andrea jumps over the wall and knifes the walker -that was ok, but the archer girl seemed a little more upset then was necessary.
They find Carol in the Prison but no real explanation of why she is just lying in that cell not making any noise. Perhaps dehydration?
I thought the scene where Merle takes Glen and Maggie was kind of whack, they seem hardened enough not to let that happen, but whatever.
Then the final scene where Michonne shows up at the prison seemed pretty good.
