    I hated the fact that the first season was so different. It shouldn’t be called an adaptation if it’s not going to adapt it. It also probably wouldn’t have been as bad if the first two episodes wouldn’t have tried to follow the comic and then the rest change it up too much. If they had no plans to follow the comic they should have just done so from the very beginning. Make it a total reboot of the book. n

    In reponse to Kirkman’s “people don’t like change” answer. No, that’s not it at all. It’s not change that bothered some people (myself included), it’s taking something truly unique, like the comic, and turning into standard Hollywood fare. Shady goverment types? Boring. Lame, unnessesary explanation of the zombie virus? Boring. Just give the comic in it’s awesome, original form.
