Some Thoughts on AMC's "The Walking Dead" Season 3
- by Señor Editor, 26 November 2012
As you may already know, I am quite a fan of "The Walking Dead" comicbook. What you may not know, though, is that I also watch the show regularly. Even if I don’t like it nearly as much as I like the comics. With yesterday’s episode, it seems things are finally heating up, and the conflict with Woodbury and the Governor is unavoidable. I figured this may be a good time to see how this chapter of the story was potrayed in the show thus far.
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not one of these sad fanboys that just want to see every adaptation of what they liked done without anything differing from the source material. I’m not sitting at home, yelling at the tv “THIS IS NOT HOW IT HAPPENED IN THE COMIC!!!!>:-(((”. I’m all for the show having a different take on the story, adding new stuff, changing things etc. Even if some of the changes they make are remarkably pointless and seem to not work at all. But that's another story.
The whole Woodbury/Prison saga is one of the most well know and liked parts of the comicbook story. In the show it starts differently, with Andrea and Michonne separated from the group, finding the crashed chopper and a team of Woodbury scalpers. Since the show's story differs so much from the comic's, let's take a look at the standout moments of this season and discuss them one by one. Also, there are some SPOILERS for both the show and the comic (a few years old spoilers, in the case of the comic, going up to something like issue #60).
