re: Would The Walking Dead have been better on HBO?


I think on HBO they could have stayed true to the comic. Don't get me wrong, I love the liberties they have taken with the show on AMC. If not for those we would never have met Daryl, but last night was a key example of a point missed by AMC.

The Michonne/Governor dynamic seems a little forced whereas in the comic there was a real reason for the hatred and ridiculous brutality.

Oh and I agree with all Maggie's boobs comments.

Just curious, which actors do you find poor?

Shane
T-Dawg
Carl
Andrea (though she's gotten better)
Glenn isn't that good
Merle

I think the guy playing Rick does a decent enough job, but I can understand why some people wouldn't like his performances.

The forced accents really suck. The governor, Merle, Shane, Hershcel.

Isn't the actor that plays Rick British? That shows through sometimes, almost like he's trying to hard to sound the way he does.

Michonne always with that stupid pissed off look on her face. We get it, you're an angry black person.

***SPOILERS***

Rick does seem a little forced sometimes, but overall, considering he is British, he does a pretty good job. Shane also seemed forced at times too, but the actor fits his hot head character so it worked for me.


Lori never showed me anything to be impressed with, except for the scene right before the C-Section (which was intense as hell)

To say that Rick does 'a decent enough job' is just ludicrous.

I agree that the acting is overall poor, but they get the job done.

Rick, Shane, and baby Judith are the top 3 actors this show has seen.

I don't think nudity would have added much of anything to the show so no.




Nudity adds to any show (unless it's "bad" nudity [fat trolls, dongs, etc.])

Yes. Obviously during the zombie apocalypse there would be alot of "oh shit!"'s and "die mother frickers!"'s going on.

Jk. Kinda.

I could name five other tv series that would be better off on HBO

Shane


Easily the best actor in season 2 and probably the series.

quote:

T-Dawg


Had very few lines after season 1.

quote:

Carl


Is a kid and has done great this season.

quote:

Andrea (though she's gotten better)


Is terrible, but it could also just be that I hate her character.

quote:

Glenn isn't that good


Has sucked since he has gotten with Maggie.

quote:

Merle



Does fine.
