Beep beep. Second series confirmed: http://twitter.com/bearmccreary/status/1743052737617921
Literally amazing, but "Rick" will never be anything but an emotionally immature, drunken, smoking school teacher to me.
Re: the strong women characters: Just wait until Michone enters the series. You'll get your strong female character. Oh boy, will you ever
The second episode was very very different from the story as told in the comic, which I personally love since it means there are surprises for people who read the comics as well!
Really enjoyed these first couple of episodes, and I like how they're not making a carbon copy of the books. Although is T-Dog(?) meant to be Tyreese? Because he seems quite different, and I think I prefer him being older and more embattled.
I'm with Kim, though, Andrew Lincoln is kinda always going to be Simon from Teachers to me.
I like the writing in the comics and I'm really enjoying the TV series so far. The art in the comics is... Eh. Took some getting used to.
Most people think I'm Wrong about the comics, though. You should give them a try.
nevr 4get. (Christ, I've watched some right old shit)
Anyway, I'm enjoying this.
I think the comics are ace, personally. Bleak as all fuck, and I'm only up to the end of year four (I've been collecting the twelve-issue hardcovers, I think the monthly books are up to year seven or eight now). Horrible, appalling things happen to everybody. Michonne's grimmest scenes (from issue #33) are hard to stomach, I have no idea if they'll go that far in the series.
Really enjoyed this so far - haven't read the comics at all, but I'm loving the visuals in the tv series.
re: Andrew Lincoln - I was worried I'd not be able to see him as anything other than Egg, but I totally forgot all about that connection while watching. Which is a good thing.
Watched the first episode last night. Holy shit.
OK, watched the second episode this afternoon. I literally gagged during the guts scene. OMG.
Can't wait for the next episode!
