Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Somebody Get Carl In The Dang House Already Edition

by

Sunday nights are once again the night where I sacrifice sleep in order to enjoy the madness of ‘The Walking Dead.’  Last night’s episode made it 100% clear that we’re dealing with an entirely different continuity from the comics (as if the relative survival-to-horrific-death ratio of characters wasn’t enough) with the introduction of what is probably this season’s big bad and some revealing character moments for Michonne and Andrea.  For my taste, it’s harder to watch the show knowing how the last ten years of the comic have gone, but I’m torn on whether the differences are a good or a bad thing.  Sure, we’re dealing with a different medium, but that doesn’t explain the lack of Tyreese (a pretty awesome character in the prison arc, one might recall) or the divergent character path of Dale.

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) reminds you that this isn’t a democracy, and WE ARE THE WALKIIING DEEEAD, asking: Do you think it’s a good thing or a bad thing that the Walking Dead adaptation has made changes to the source material?
