I've been readin "The Walking Dead" for a long time now. I enjoy it
very much. My wife likes it too. The tv show made from it will suck or
be utterly different. If they try to make it identical, it will blow.
But what can they change?The comic seems perfectly made.
Tv is so very rarely very good, I just can't imagine this thing
working out. They're zombies! They don't like vanilla-handed censors.
They Like killing ninety percent of the cast in one episode deep into
the story arc. They don't like to keep the audience in a weird limbo
like Lost and they hate surprise twist endings. There's only one
ending: everybody dies; mostly to rise again.
Your tv and the tv-watching public cannot handle this.
For some of the above reasons, all comic book-inspired movies suck in
one way or another. I want film makers to start backing away from
comics, a true American literary art. That will never happen though.
Is this a great country or what?
