They are definitely changing things for this season compared to the comics, which I knew was going to happen. Kind of interested to see what they do with it, I've been viewing the show and the comics as two different things anyway.

So have I. Actually want them to continue making stark differences, which Kirkman actually said he'd do if I'm not mistaken. :]

I just hope that it's not as slow as last season. The only thing that saved it was the mid-season finale (that ending! gah!!!) and the finale, although even that was kind of meh

Man, that last season was much more mediocre. Even though the first season had six episodes I still think it surpasses the second. So much damn talking this time around. I HOPE it's not because of the new writers and showrunner, but, oh well. :P

They just wasted so much time in general. This season looks like it speeding things up like crazy, maybe to make up for lost time? I wish they had picked more exciting music for the trailer though! Last years trailer was epic because of Civilian by Wye Oak.

Lulz, well, the thing I love about the show is its use of minimal music. Makes it a bit suspenseful imo, but naw an exciting trailer score wouldn't hurt. xD

I enjoyed the first season of the show, and watched the second with much disdain.
I have read a good chunk of the graphic novels and they are pretty decent.
Very gory, very raunchy, very human.
The show is basically crapping all over the comics in my opinion.
They change anything and everything about the plot and characters seemingly just because they can.
I think that if someone was handed a great world with good characters in it and tasked to make a tv show out of it, they should have the easiest job in the world.
The comics already have a rediculous fan base, people already love the characters, so why mix everything up for the tv show.
It would be like if someone was told to make a replica of the mona lisa in another medium and they decided to give her a top hat, a corncob pipe, a perm and made her a DJ on the weekends under the name Skeezy Pinwheel.
I just don't get why the show is so far off from the comics, its supposed to be the same thing.
If they didn't get all world changing all the time the show would probably be even more popular than it is now.

It is perfectly acceptable to fear and admire a being you could not possibly understand.

Not likely.
At the backward rate at which the show is progressing it will be two seasons before they go anywhere near the prison and do all of what happens there.

Until we see what happens I'll remain hopeful. I just wish Kirkman wasn't so involved, it feels weird.

The whole show got weird as soon as they veered from the plotline of the comics.
And sad, it got very sad for me.

Are you completely up-to-date with the comic? If so,

I must give this season premiere a solid A.

With that said, why are we splitting seasons in half now?

Apparently I forgot about your post here.
In response, I am perfectly fine with plot.

Doctor Who is doing that weird season split thing too, but they are British so no one questions them.

It's so you have less of a wait between season finishes. I think it's a pretty good idea.

Also, pleeeeease be careful of spoilers, yanks, I think we get it aired over here a week after you. =)

That is like us Canucks and Doctor Who.
Damn intercontinental lag.
