    I figured the Govnah wouldn't die, he's the main bad dude in the comics.

    Oh well I recommend the compendiums. I could not put the first one down.

    The only thing I will say about the comics is that you definatly want too scream - "WHY ARE YOU ALL ACTING SO Fing STUPID!"

    other than that it was highly entertaining.

    I've never read an issue either but I've had a ton of stuff from the comics spoiled for me. I was just really disappointed in the Governor. I've heard him referred to as "one of the greatest villains in comic history" on more than one occasion. Combine that with the spoilers I've come across, and I was really let down by the Governor in the TV show. I know I probably shouldn't compare the two. But when you hear all this stuff about how terrifying the comic version is, you can't help but have certain expectations. This version of the Governor mostly came across more douchey than terrifying to me.
    Of course maybe the season 4 Gov will be more insane and scary. I hope so. But still, I think they could've got to the good stuff a lot faster if that's the case. We didn't need a whole season of this "tame" Governor.

    All things considered, I think I might rank this as my least favorite season honestly.

    The Governor was the most annoying character since Lori if you ask me.

    I hated Woodbury drama all season.

    I am not sure how he is portrayed in the comics, but the governor was annoying. Love the show, he just wasnt that scary or even intimidating to me. Just another *******.

    Last night's episode was awful. I've never seen such a build up for a finale that let everyone down so hard.
    Someone explain why we couldn't at least get a decent shootout at the prison?

    The first season was great but it has gone downhill ever since.


    Thank god Game of Thrones is back along with Mad Men.

    Guess I'm in the minority but I thought last night's finale was really good.

    That said, I did not enjoy TWD nearly as much as I had when it first came out. The Governor is no where near as awesome as in the comics. But I kind of like how you can see his transition into full on crazy mode in the finale. And I liked how there was some divergence from the comics. I thought the stuff with Tyreese and the random people joining the prison was a good arc. Even liked Carl's little speech to Rick near the end.
