RJDiogenes, yea, it's a fine line between showing the Governor be Comic Book brutal, and balancing that for the show, without damaging the successful formula they currently have in place. They've done an outstanding job with the show so far, so I have faith they'll keep the balance right.

I suspect the reveal of his psychotic nature to Rick and co. will take far longer. In the comic it was pretty much "This is the Governor. Bam! Look he's nuts!", within a few pages everyone realised he was a nutjob.

For the TV show i would guess it'll be several episodes of Rick and co. suspecting something is up with these Woodbury folk, before the batshit crazy is revealed.

The Governor from the comics scares the hell out of me. I consider him more insane than the Joker was in TDK.

Set photos of Woodbury! There's a very big SPOILER picture (also spoiled in the subtitle) if you follow the link, so I'll post the non-spoiler pictures here.

^^ I can see them okay.

That's a pretty good (and welcome) spoiler.

Re: 'Walking Dead' renewed for Season 3

Another SPOILER photo! If you looked at the spoiler photo from the link in my previous post, you'll be just fine to look at this one.

That photo comes from this set of production photos. If you want to avoid the spoiler, look only at the first three in that set. Those three feature Michonne, Rick, and the photo we've previously seen of the Governor.

Michonne looks pretty wild-- I wonder if they'll have a reasonable backstory for her, considering the usual realism of the show (Zombies aside).

Alll Right!

The Walking Dead: What Resident Evil/Biohazard should have been. tm

I haven't read the comic books yet. I wanna be surprised.

I don't want them to out and out copy the comics. Keep it interesting.

Andrea, Dale, and I think Carol were in The Mist.

If you want actor names, Laurie Holden, Jeff DeMunn and Melissa McBride.

I saw that on Sci-Fi (or a part of it) last night...and it was made by Frank Darabount, so no wonder they got picked up for Walking dead. Had Frank stayed on, i wonder if we would have seen more cast members?

Marcia Gay Harden as some crazed religious fanatic ascending to power would actually work in TWD universe.

Re: 'Walking Dead' renewed for Season 3

I didn't know Darabount produced The Mist. That was probably the best adaptation of a Stephen King story (except for the ending), which is nice, because it's my favorite Stephen King story.

Interestingly, the DVD of The Mist includes both a color and b&w version, and the DVD of Walking Dead season one includes both a color and b&w version of the pilot.
