While I see the comparison, I don't think it's valid.  Withholding aid may or may not lead to someone's death (in this case the guy died).  Pulling a trigger will definitely cause someone's death.

I maintain my point, would we be agreeing with the actions if it was the Governor who killed Carl?  Let's say Carl ran straight into him, was surrendering his gun, and the Governor just shot him?  Certainly Rick wouldn't agree with the action.  I wouldn't agree with it either.  Though in saying that I don't agree with it, I do understand Carl's motives.  I think he made the wrong choice, but I understand why he made it.

On a similar, but unrelated note, I get the impression from the final moments of the episode that

No,I think leaving an unarmed person to fend for themself with walkers everywhere ,assures death just as a bullet does,its just a slower more passive way to do it.
If anything ,its more cruel than one shot to the head .

Miss me?

And yet Micchone survived alone for many months, of course she had a couple of Walkers as pets, which not everyone will think of.  But still, I disagree with you.  Unless you run across a herd, you can survive alone - the fact that he was there is proof that you can survive.  He'd been surviving for months and months, it was just bad luck (or bad scriptwriting) that he died virtually the same day that Rick ignored him.

I watched the first episode again last night, and a question occurred to me.  Perhaps I've forgotten an explanation somewhere.

Why were some dead bodies not reanimated?  Rick saw a woman in the hospital who had been picked over, but the brain looked intact.  I recall several instances from this season where walkers were eating from unanimated bodies.  The "bicycle walker" in the first episode was only half a corpse, yet it still moved.  So, what is the difference?

One's reality is another's nightmare.

Maybe someone who has read the comics can answer. I have an idea but I think there is an answer already.

Another thing to think about, is how Carl views the world compared to Rick, Herschel, and the rest of the adults. Rick is a lot older and his values are set from more experience as a human living in a safe, sophisticated world. So when all of this happens, he still has his "good" values based on past morals, where as Carl is young and very impressionable. His values were rocked. He went from a secure world where daddy protects to a now kill or be killed world. His value of life is different than his elders.

Look and the lovable :rolleyes: Andrea. She had the chance to kill the Gov but she couldn't. She wasn't a murderer before the outbreak and she wasn't one after, even after she regularly killed walkers. Like Rick, her values were set from a different time and couldn't change enough even if the world around her went to hell.

Imagine what baby Judith would be like being raised in this world. I would think she would value life more, but maybe killing walkers desensitizes people?

I brought this up a couple of pages back,i agree 100%!Different world and one growing up in this new world will adapt or die,this is a SURVIVAL horror show.As humans we started out with instincts to survive,feelings came later on.

This sucks no show tonight  <_< I hate waiting haha

In that interview with Kirkman, he says that we will see The Governor "in a whole new light".
I can't really see Phillip becoming a "good guy", so, I wonder what he meant by that!!!

I'll read your links next time I come on Merc. i just needed some fun thinking after reading a disgusting thread ( in terms of members behaviour) in the crypto section.

Anyway I've fully converted to 'he may the smelliest and dirtiest but all the ladies want to do him... Daryl Dixon' lol!

To that point who else has watched The Boondock Saints 1 & 2?  William Defoe in the first movie was fabulous.

I think Daryl would be one of the most popular characters on the show and while I know they have to keep us in suspense with characters deaths but if they leave us with only characters we can't connect to it would eventually lead to the shows death.

By the comics the Gov should be dead but he's actually popular as well so that may be one of the reasons they've kept him still alive.

Daryl got his own game as well. Very popular.

Shame the game was a bit disappointing. lol

Coffey, what's the first game like? I don't normally play anything but karaoke on the xbox, but I've been told the first one is all about thinking and making decisions on the spot.

Problem is it's been sold out everywhere here for over a month and I'm getting a bit p**d that they haven't got new stock in yet.

I wouldn't think I'd be the sort to worry about a game lol.
