oh god you completely missed the point "by doing that limiting the things rick could do with want he wanted to do." makes no sense
And not cutting of Ricks hand would save the editors from a lot of editing.

I bet you they'll just maim his hand really bad so he won't be able to use it for awhile Same effect, no editing, still feasible.
[QUOTE=IMoo;35220074]No, they already stated that rick will [sp]never loose his hand[/sp] because kirkman kind of gimped himself by doing that limiting the things rick could do with want he wanted to do.[/QUOTE] That makes sense. It would provide a lot of extra work for the show editors, as well as cripple many aspects (no pun intended). Though, I hope this doesn't rule out [sp]amputations[/sp] all together.

Oh god, I just finished reading volume 15 of TWD comics. I only buy the volumes, so that means no more TWD until fall (TV show is back) or June (next volume is released.) Why can't I pace myself. I got 13-15 delivered today and read them all in under two hours :C.
[QUOTE=Simski;35216642]It annoyed me more that[sp]when I first saw them getting killed, my first reaction was "who the fuck was that?". I mean, only the redshirt extras seen about 3 times on screen during the whole season suddenly just shows up, gets killed, and is treated like a great loss and will surely be used for a plot-device for more drama nobody gives a flying fuck about.[/sp][/QUOTE] We were almost out of the shitty drama woods for a moment but i'm sure they'll milk those deaths. In the comics [sp]when Lori dies they draw it out with the phone but at least it's an interesting spin on grieving instead of yelling and crying, when Lori was running around for carl last episode it just rustled my jimmies I don't need to see that kind of emotional instability, it isn't entertaining.[/sp]
[QUOTE=SteeleCratos;35204046]Did anyone else think Deus Ex Human Revolution when Rick went all "I DIDNT ASK FOR THIS"[/QUOTE] I'm surprised none of the characters called him out on that. He worked hard to be leader, he took that role from Shane and fought Shane for it. That made him a huge hypocrite in that moment, to throw it on the group that he was forced to be leader. Then again it proved what wimps the others are. No one, not Glen or whoever else, stepped up and said "I'll take over Rick, if it's such a burden to you."

So when he says "I never asked for this" what he's getting it is that he doesn't want to be the one calling all the shots but in his mind he has no choice; if he's in charge the group has the best chance of surviving.

So his hand is basically dead weight (or will be close to dead weight for the duration it heals) Or just cut it really bad or something so it's less functional but not gone.
I think holding him down, and beating his hand with a hammer would be pretty brutal.
it's most likely going to get some hammer action
they're gonna make him jack off another dude and he'll cut it off himself
[QUOTE=FuckaNinja;35225325]they're gonna make him jack off another dude and he'll cut it off himself[/QUOTE] Undoubtedly.
The writing and attention to detail on this show has gone to shit, ever since they got a beefed up production budget they've started cutting corners (which is ironic, since you usually cut corners when you have a smaller budget logically) and it's gotten progressively worse. The series still has it's moments and it's enjoyable enough, but it's starting to pale in comparison to other amc projects.
^I thought the budget got cut after the first season? That was my understanding from earlier in this thread.
Merle's role is revealed, spoilers, obviously: [url]http://bestmoviesevernews.com/michael-rooker-in-for-walking-dead-season-3079/[/url] Plus, the action/progress is going to be ramped up from the get-go apparently.

If [sp]Daryl[/sp] dies I am going to flip so many shits
They [b]can't[/b] do that! Also the article was kind of confusing. Was it saying [sp]Merle is not going to be related to the Governor, but he's going to be a major bad guy. And they're going to do that whole story before introducing the Governor to the show.[/sp]
[QUOTE=Ricenchicken;35228682]Regarding rumor going around about season 3: [sp] Supposedly daryl is suppose to die while holding back the govenor to let someone escape [/sp] I really hope that does not happen.[/QUOTE] (comic spoilers) [sp]When the Governor had his big attack in the comics, everyone at the prison except for Rick and Carl died. A few people were away from the prison(Michonne, Andrea, Dale, Glenn, and Maggie), but there were a lot more survivors at the prison than in the show(for example Otis and Patricia, Hershel, Hershel's last remaining son, a prisoner they had met in the prison, a doctor they had rescued from the Governor's town, Lori and her baby, and I'm sure there were others I'm missing)[/sp]
While we wait for the fall I figured I should post some cracked articles regarding TWD. If anybody else finds some interesting stuff, feel free to share.

Those articles couldn't be more accurate.
oh my god these are hilarious [url]http://io9.com/5895214/in-the-most-biting-walking-dead-memes-everybody-hates-lori[/url]
[IMG]http://img.gawkerassets.com/img/17h4snamy9ebvgif/original.gif[/IMG] so true
Can someone make a GIF of the part where Rick is[sp]escaping the barn in the finale and he shoots 5 or 6 walkers in a row.[/sp]?
how faithful is it to the source material?
not very, it's essentially an alternate time strain with the characters being shallow depictions of their comic counter parts. but it has potential.
This is how I see season 3 going (comic spoilers*you have to know the plot to figure it out*) [sp] They reach the barn by the end of the opening episode and they deal with the 4 convicts inside all the way up to the mid-season finale where they show woodsbury. 2nd half of the season leads up to the govenors invasion, with the conflict between daryl and merle growing, but the govenor kills daryl, merle gets mad and kills the govenor (replacing the girl that killed him) and meets up with the group in season 4. *this sentence is just more far-fetched*(Or maybe the govenor kills merle maybe merle will be tyrese at that exchange, and daryl will get mad and go with michonne and attack them and get killed himself). dunno.
