They do in the comic they leave the prison for the Safe Zone.
That's definitely not why they leave the prison in the comic but okay

No but that's where they went I just worded it wrong also the Carol, Daryls milf she kills herself via walker.

Forgot about this thing, I was going to post it earlier.

Also, I can't wait to see how Abraham will come in and bring in the conspiracy of government involvement with Eugene.

I hate that people complain that its not exactly the same plot as the comic, I read the comic in 6th grade and thought it was cheesy as fuck after the third book. I personally think the show has way more potential than its comic counterpart

It shouldn't be exactly the same, and so far I'm quite happy with the series. It's a lot different, but it gives more depth to the caracters, IMO.

Anyway, I don't know on which channel and at what time the first episode of the 4th season will play. Anybody can tell me?

You're right in that it shouldn't be exactly the same, it just seems like the show's writing isn't as good as the comic's. I didn't read the comic until after season 2 but I've always thought the first few episodes were the best, which were almost direct adaptions from the comic, then late season 1 and on has been so-so as the show writers have been adding more of their own ideas. It's fine if they want it to be different from the comic, but it should be better, if anything.

Season 3 deviated heavily from the original comic especially towards the end and had a weak let down ending as a result. I hope they can do better in the 4th season

I think I like the show better. There isn't much character development in the comics, even though I like the women characters better in the comics then what they are in the show. Second season female characters were obnoxious, whiny and useless. They were a little better in the third season, though.

Often the decision-making in the comics seems wrong. Some characters are just reckless and careless... Plus, the governor is a fucking dipshit in the comics :P

To each his own, I s'pose. I think the show has better character development but really slow plot movement, and that the comic has more shallow characters but steady and more interesting events. Like I thought everything pertaining to the prisoners was done a lot better in the comics, but the show has much stronger undertones of morality and all that good shit.

Also yeah the Governor is pretty consistently retarded in either medium, albeit slightly less so in the show. Rad coat, though.

The third season was slooooooow as fuck, yes. I agree with that. The second half had some episodes that brought so little to the plot... It really made Andrea look like a pure dumbass. How many chances did she gave that retarded governor before understanding how much of a psychopathic freak he was?!

Also yeah the Governor is pretty consistently retarded in either medium, albeit slightly less so in the show. Rad coat, though.

Once he's established as the bad guy, he just starts walking through bullets, act like Freddy Krugger and consistently making unpopular decisions, and yet Martinez and the black guy (can't rememeber his name) keep following him blindly...

I doubt its airborne. I mean they're all already infected.

I suspect E.Coli which weakens them and then they come back. Pig eats tainted food, pig dies from E.Coli eh?

Yeah that makes sense, if they eat food that's been infected from the "Virus" they'll no doubt turn.

Except that would mean he had to be on the inside of the fence. Nevermind, not the governor.

But still maybe.

But probably not

after Breaking Bad I don't give a shit about any of the characters on The Walking Dead and the story arcs that don't lead to anything (like Rick meeting the crazy lady) annoy me. Also I noticed Maggie didn't seem to be wearing makeup and I thought 'yeah that makes sense, it is the end of the world', only to then immediately notice that loads of the other female characters were wearing very obvious makeup

good zombie makeup though and the zombies falling through the roof was funny

I really liked that scene with the kids because it goes to show that whatever the situation that adolescent need to question the norm will always be there. That's a very realistic character moment.

so in comic book canon Carol, Hershel then Glenn should die next but knowing how they started fucking up the series by the third season it makes me question this season. I just hope they cut down on the fucking filler episodes.

I'm pretty sure it is. I'm just tired of people dickriding this series and using it as the reference point to compare others series.

Lots of shit happened this episode, i'm digging it. The crazy lady was pretty pointless and glasses kid spoke like it was the 1950s but I liked everything else. Glasses kid's sickness obviously has something to do with the pig, but I can't imagine why it'd be affecting him and nobody else. Maybe he was doing some weird shit to it, I don't know.

They're really not wasting any time killing off the expendable new members of Rick's group, that's 2 down already. Relieved that the Governor's not an immediate threat, because there's no non-dumb way for them to do that so soon. I liked the supermarket scene a bunch, it was a pretty clever way to throw some zombies into the mix rather than the usual "and then zombies shambled out of the forest and nobody noticed until they were really close" that this show likes to do.

How 'bout Hershel's pegleg 2.0 with the shoe and all that fancy shit
