One thing that I feel the show could have done was, that once they came into contact with the governor, they could have done a series of flash backs to how the governor rose to power and how their community got established in the first place. This would have added more characters to the show and made us even more sympathetic to the governors cause. We would then have a better idea of why this community, "The Governor," is ruthless when it comes to making contact with other groups and what happens to others who have joined the Governor's community and why.

A series of flash backs telling the Governor's story in more details, and those around him would have kept us asking even more questions about the future of the conflict to come between our groups of survivor's (Rick's group) and the governor's. In fact, it could still be done. Hopefully? Thus creating even more tension about the show.

Any one has any thoughts on that?

I am liking the episode so far. Even though not much is happening, I am enjoying seeing all of these people interacting and just seeing how their personalities match up so much. The two hard-head leaders, the two "advisers" so to speak, and the two that are just bad asses. I feel like these guys could get along if it werent for the two leaders.

In the current episode?


EDIT- All youve missed in this episode is them meeting up, the governor disarmed himself but has a gun taped to the table, so he didnt really disarm himself, Rick hasnt disarmed himself, anddddd then the rest of the people outside were talking, being hostile, then worked together to kill a mob of the walkers. After that, Deryl and the other group's bad ass shared some cigarettes, Hershel and the scientist (cant remember his dang name) talked about Hershel's leg and junk, and the bitch (sorry, Andrea) has been a whiny bitch. And she tried intervening in the decisions, but got kicked out and went on a killing spree when the walkers came. Thats about it.

As much as I agree with you that it would make the show better, there's no way they'd try to make the Governor a sympathetic figure. It's too much of a "generic cable drama" which has to have "good vs. evil".

I sort of like the "give me Michonne" deal because it puts a tough moral decision on Rick's shoulders.

Also, how much do you think that cig company (was it Camel? I forgot) paid AMC to have Darryl smoke a cig?

1. Herschel is now driving the mini-van.
2. Darryl tries to seduce Martinez
3. Andrea has some kind of Rosie O'Donnell act going on
4. Glenn is mad Meryl is trying to take over but then puts him in charge so he can go and have sex.
5. The Walkers are kinda pervy and try to sneak a peek at Glenn and Maggie doing it.
6. Governor: "Rick, what's grosser than gross? LOL, my eye, dude!"
7. The Governor and crew leave in their apocalypse 4x4 rig. Rick and crew leave in the seafoam green mini-van with one-legged Willie Nelson driving.
8. The Walkers are apparently all now trained to just let Daryl ride his bike around wherever without attacking.
9. Milton: "Oh wait, Governor. I finally get it - we're the bad guys!"
10. Rick still looks dirty as hell but gets through an entire episode for once without melting into a 180-pound mound of sweat.

I'd say this sums it up pretty well.
