Re: The Walking Dead

The ending of the season 3 finale was changed & re-shot. The original scenes with Andrea were quite different from what we saw.

Re: The Walking Dead

That's very interesting. I think they were wise to re-shoot it with Michonne, though. She was the one who really needed to be there.

^^ agreed. Much more powerful the way it was done.

Re: The Walking Dead

Yeah, I definitely like the ending we got a lot better. I see what they were going for with the original ending, but I think the one we got was a lot more emotionally satisfying.

Re: The Walking Dead

The reshot ending also made Milton a bit more heroic imo, since he took the beating from Phil, and also made Andrea somewhat less of a wimp, since she didn't try to let Milton choke her to death to avoid having to be eaten by him.

Agreed with everybody that the reshot ending works much much better.

Speaking of Andrea, I was in a used bookstore yesterday flipping through the Volume 1 Compendium of the comics and got kind of wistful for that version of Andrea.

I'm thinking that version of Andrea will be seen in the TV show Carol. If you know the comics at all, you know the comic book version of Carol turned out totally different. I like the TV version.

I also prefer TV Carol much, much more.

Re: The Walking Dead

I think it was a very wise decision not to follow the comics too closely. The show keeps the spirit of the comics intact but keeps me in suspense not knowing where the story is going to go.

Re: The Walking Dead

Agreed. They have kept enough of the comic elements that it's still the same story, but rearranged and changed enough that you can still enjoy both separately.

Re: The Walking Dead

Here's another scene that was re-shot and was very different from what we saw in aired version of the episode.
Unlike the last one I posted about, this one will be on the season 3 DVD.

Re: The Walking Dead

I'm glad they deleted that scene. That poor guy had enough grief as it was.

But I love the idea of the zombie aquarium tank with floating heads.
