The Walking Dead

I have loved this show since the first episode.  Survival stories amidst madness and characters to love and hate.   It gets better and better as it continues.  Carl is growing up to be a badass.  Rick is losing his mind.  Michone is amazing.  The Govenor (Who would have known David Morrisey could do a perfect american southern accent?) totally insane and evil.  Moral decisions constantly being made.  Bad things happen to good people.  Good people take care of others.  In assaults the senses and the soul.

So, this weekend, I finally started reading the comics it was based on (Compendium one - issues 1-12).  It was weird to see them look different - I keep seeing the actors.  And I DID know there were differences between the books and show but was suprised at how MUCH happened during those first issues.  These story arcs - took several seasons on tv.  Of course, that tells you how much the stories have been fleshed out and expanded on for tv (in a good way).

TWD is NOT for everyone - there are blood and guts galore (literally) but of all the zombie stuff out there, this is by far my favorite.
