Hi all, I have been reading the comics since #19 and am glad that someone took a chance on a zombie television series. I know that it was a risk because in this genre it is hard to have a lasting plot. I mean the basic plot goes like "we are safe, we are not safe, we are safe, etc." The series has always been about character development and human connection. Just like 28 days later and dawn of the dead. Which the AMC series is stealing many things from. Alright, I thought the first episode was money, the second was good, the third was a bit boring, and then the last was as good as the first. My problem is that the Tv series is deviating from the story. First you have Merle, the redneck who wasn't in the series. Then I don't remember the nursing home. I'm Ok with the deviations as long as it pieces together at the end. I have heard rumors that merle will end up being the evil Govenor as the story goes. Anybody else tracking the inconsistencies in the story?
