Looks great. Loved the first one and this one looks promising

An obvious filler episode that's only delaying the inevitable. I liked the character interaction between the "henchman" if you will. Interesting to show the parallels between the two groups. I really hope this final battle is satisfying. Andrea could die. They totally destroyed her character. In the comics she's intelligent, tenacious, and a fighter. She's tough in the show but way too naive and just sort of a dumb blonde IMO. She's ready to assassinate the Governor one week, then tries to broker peace, then finally comes to the conclusion the Governor is a bad dude? The way her mind works is beyond me

Really one of the best episodes of the series. Finally we get something from Michonne, and I loved her character development in this one. Clever the foil between Rick and Morgan. Morgan is exactly what Rick would become if he kept pushing people away. I hope that's not the last we see of Morgan. Perhaps he'll have a run-in with the Governor?

TV Andrea is really starting to piss me off. Fairly annoying, really naive, and nothing like comics Andrea. She'll probably end up killing the Governor for "fooling" her all this time

@Super_SoldierXII: I definitely agree with you to a certain extent. I understand what they're doing with the TV Governor, making him more relatable before peeling off the layers of his psyche, but he just isn't THAT twisted. Its made him a character that I just don't care about. I know he'll most likely die at the end of the season, but every episode I find myself waiting for him to become a truly worthy villain, not necessarily exactly like the comics Governor, but sick and depraved enough to make me gasp and say "that man needs to get what's coming to him".

If you watched Talking Dead then you know Axel's character was supposed to be a serial pedophile rapist or whatever, but they scrapped that for some reason. It's like AMC and the showrunners are scared to push certain boundaries in fear of alienating the casual fans, but from someone whose read the comics, I yearn for a more realistic portrayal of what that kind of world would do to the mind, and how people would start acting as a result. The only person whose mind is going downhill is Rick's, and that whole deal is getting fairly sickening.

With all that said, I understand that the show is a completely different animal than the comics so I take it with a grain of salt. I'm a huge fan of both mediums, I just wish the show was as compelling as the comics.

Anybody else think that this Justice League movie is kind of a bad idea? Audiences won't even know who half the team is. And then we have the Dark Knight trilogy and GL movie that will only confuse people more when they realize its not the same characters from those movies. I don't care how long it takes, individual characters need to be introduced first. It's just plain logical

BTW Joseph Gordon-Levitt will have nothing to do with this JL movie. Lets be realistic here folks

Gotta admit it might be weird seeing Zod in actual General/Army get-up. Movie looks good though. I have faith in Snyder that this will redeem the franchise

I think the switch to the new 52 could've been done a lot better. Why firmly establish that only 5 years has gone by since superheros first came about? Theres just too many confusing elements of the new DCU. It's easy to say "just sit back and enjoy the stories for what they are" but thats really difficult for people who have read the majority of a characters titles from the past 25+ years. I've read almost every relevant Batman comic since 1986's Year One, and cannot simply accept some of the changes or lapses in not only Batman's history, but his supporting cast's history as well

I wonder if they'll kill Daryl. He is very well liked by the viewers and the show isn't like the comics where popular characters get killed every few issues. Somehow I see Andrea intervening and helping Daryl escape, but maybe I'm just optimistic.

Great episode, but I would like to see exactly how Daryl got captured. And I wonder how big of a factor Rick's sanity will be moving forward. Great seeing Kirkman explain the scene with Shane on Talking Dead

Nolan proved that you could make a truly compelling comic book film series, not just one full of gimmicks and flash. The casting choices were for the large part impeccable, and Ledger's performance will likely go down as one of the best of our generation
