I'm guessing it's Andrea?

Andrea who died back in the governer days, she died in the comics in the current story arc.

Agree they are 2 different mediums but you cant really change the characters too much considering a lot of the fanbase are comic readers, also certain characters are pretty important to the story that follows the negan arc.

Another point Im not sure I made on here before is when you have a TV show that is pretty successful like this you are making your cast into stars, and when you have a good cast you can't exactly just kill off their characters on a whim, end of the day your show loses one of its key draws and replacing the spot on the show successfully isn't really guaranteed, it's like the whole Daryl debate, people want him killed off but a massive amount of the viewbase is watching for Norman Reedus if he goes then so do a large portion of the viewers.

I'm not a fan of Game of Thrones, but don't they regularly kill off key characters?

I'll still persists with TWD, but that's it, persist.

TWD is (was?) a hugely popular show. I’d imagine the comic book fans definitely make up the minority of the viewing figures. But I do get the points you’re making.

People want Daryl dead?! He’s one of the best characters. <****>

They do. But Game of Thrones focuses on a lot more characters/larger groups. For similar in TWD we’d have to have watched 20 episodes of those random garbage dwellers.

So, Richard wanted so bad to kill Negan, and when he finally had his chance... He got the bat and gently hit Negan in the face? Okay.

Also, Hilltop, The Kingdom, The Scavengers, The Saviors, The Sanctuary, king Ezekiel, Jesus... a pet tiger? And all of this is happen probably in 30 miles radius. Boy, can't wait to see what happened outside the perimeter.

Anyone else persevering with this rubbish? I watched a few episodes of the latest series (all predictably s*** and repetitive) and have since deleted all the others from my Sky Box. Not bothering to watch it again.

I've been saying that I'm going to stop watching for a few series now but finally cut all ties <laugh>

The only good episode recently was the beginning of the last series where Negan smashed those people's skulls in.

Second half of the most recent series was actually really good I thought.

Really good in comparison to recent series or really good in comparison to the early series tho?

Gave up on it a few seasons back. Been catching up on some of the Netflix shows. If you haven't already, you should watch altered carbon. It's amazing.

Really good compared to the first half of the series. There were still some issues but without spoiling it it actually felt like they were getting somewhere in the second half of it.
