Hey Ape, have you asked for that douchebags IP to be banned yet? If not I'll PM Frank
Shame. I could definitely see you in that sort of role. Making witticisms off the fly seems to be your forte and that sort of talent is what I could listen to and never get bored with. If I've planted seeds of interest in your head with this new prospect, you could always pull a Boogeyman and lie about your resume.
Merry Xmas, hope you're enjoying the holidays.
Have you ever considered becoming a WWE commentator? With your journalism background, it might help you out.
As I watched the first two seasons of the show before I started reading the comic, I was over the moon that things were not only different, but also better. Now that my finger is firmly on the pulse, and I'm up to date with every issue, I'm still over the moon that things are just as different, but now I find things slightly disappointing that the TV incarnation is not as good/graphic. I can't complain too much, though, as, well, the TV show can say that at least it has Daryl and Merle, who are clearly two of the best characters in any medium that TWD exists in. I wonder if ol' Kirky will finally ever give in and place them in the comic. He's teased Daryl's comic debut by having a crossbow on the front cover before, so I'm sure he's at least entertained the idea, but he's probably of the mind that he may not be able to match the characters appeal. Still, I'd love to see him give it a go as I was genuinely disappointed to learn that the two rednecks weren't a part of the comic.
Issue 105 rocked, by the way. Like, it truly moved into new territory, and was completely and utterly engrossing. It obviously ended way too early for my liking but that's the price I must pay for reading it issue by issue lol.
The Governor has unfortunately been kinda miscast as well. He's definitely not terrible in the role by a long shot, but, he just hasn't got that rough and ready feel about him like his comic counterpart. Comic 'Guv' had an almost "pirate" feel about him, and Morrisey is playing him like he's a soft spoken gentleman who has a mean streak about him. Perhaps I'm not wording things right, but he certainly hasn't captured what made The Governor such a brilliant character that he became a firm favourite among comic neeks (nerd + geek = neek ) everywhere, despite the extremely awful behaviour he exhibited throughout his all too short time in the comic. Its a shame, because I was excited when I learned Morrissey was cast in the role when I first heard about it.
Regarding the actors playing Michonne and The Governor, respectively.
Michonne has been very poorly cast. What makes comic Michonne so bad ass is that she actually looks a lot softer than she actually is. She is very much introverted, due to her experiences dealing with life after the plague, but she is still quite a civil person (sword swinging aside lol). This chick who's playing her on TV comes across as some kind of lost amazon who has almost reverted to an almost bestial state, what with all of the scowling. Lol, when she pulls those faces I almost expect her to start growling and snarling. I imagine the actress playing her said to herself "right, soooo, this Michonne woman has been living in the wild for the past year or so, OK, she'd deffo have lost touch with her humanity a little/lot."
I wonder if she even read/heard of the comic beforehand.
No, I never heard that until just now, dude. Like, I didn't know that he was even involved with season three until I saw you point if out. What I did I notice however was that -from the first episode of this season- the show had finally captured the essence of what makes the comic so exciting. Each scene was carefully plotted out, and furthered things along remarkably well. Now, not really knowing why or how this betterment of the program had happened, I just thought to myself "yep, they've certainly pulled their finger out for this season--clearly they've just stuck it back in.
Fingers crossed for s suitable replacement.
