    People don't realize that AMC felt the comics were too dark for a TV show audience and they changed it because so fans wouldn't know what already happens.

    I'm surprised Terminus didn't make this list. It was very loosely based off of the Hunters from the comics, but the entire concept of Terminus was the main theme behind the back half of Season 4 and the first few episodes of Season 5.

    I'm probably gonna get hate for this but I don't ship Richonne. I love both characters, but to me they have a better relationship as close friends be4 they were romantic. Plus on the previous episode, No Way Out, Jesse Ricks crush/love Intereste just died. I no it was weeks for the shows time jump, but for the audience it was only one week.

    I *LOVE* The Walking Dead Games made by Telltale, then i discovered that there is a tv show based on a comic called The Walking Dead, so i went to see the very first episode in the very first season (because you wouldn't watch something with parts from the middle) and from just seeing the girl's zombie face, i got out of the website, and kissed goodbye to the episode, and decided: man, f*ck dat, but little did i know that i will return to that episode again.

    The showrunners of the TV series have confirmed that Enid is Sophia's replacement.
    Madison Lintz wasn't sure she wanted to act, by the time she made her decision it was too late to change her characters fate.
    Dale was written out due to Jeffrey DeMunn wanting to leave due to Frank Darabonts departure, he changed his mind, but again it was too late to change his fate.
    Glenn wasn't supposed to die by Negan, but Steven Yeun wanted Glenn's death from the comics (he's a big comic fan).
    Merle was supposed to be a season 4 recurring character but was written out at the last minute.

    You know if you watch both season 6 & 7 you can see that Enid is pretty much taken over Sophia's storylines. Enid is in love with Carl, has a strong bond with Glenn and Maggie and lives at the Hilltop just like Sophia.

    i tottally understand your 1# pick for daryl but i have to say judith's death is 1# imo. why? it's because on the show judith is the ultimate symbol for surviving and the reformation of society. in the comuc she dies sending a sign that ultimately there is no hope. even though life goes on in the comics something will always destroy them.
    imo the death in the comics symbolizes the comics is crime and dark overall and yhe comics will end sad. in the dhow there is always hope and the show will end on a good note.

    beth was in the comics just not a character with any lines. Im suprised noone mentioned that Everyone is alot younger than they are on the show. Carl is like 8 when the comica start and like 12 or 13 when they fight negan. Rick is like 24, 25 and lori is like 22. What about the fact that Dale and Andrea were a couple at on point and that dale loses his leg. The govenor gets his arm and eye taken out by michonne and they never take survivor from woodbury to the prison with them.

    • Skulldetta
      Skulldetta Год назад

      Lori and Rick are 32 and 34 when the outbreak occurs in the comics. Shane is only 25, so is Andrea, Carol is only 24, Dale is like 5 years older than his TV counterpart.
