I have to say that I think they copped out by cutting the way the Governor treated his prisoners and the death of Lori.
I can understand why rape or the death of a child would be a big issue for a TV station, but its not like these issues havent been seen on a TV screen before. We never even got to see Loris body - I know the suggestion was that a zombie ate her corpse, but ALL of it? Not likely.
I wouldnt be suprised if there is some rule that says its okay to depict any kind of atrocity so long as the victim is a zombie (and therefore not really a 'person'), but that similar types of violence have to be scaled back if committed against the living. We did afterall see a zombie child shot through the head in the very first episode.
Well Loris fate was actually more gruesome than the comic version.Judith will probably not last the season.The Governors brutality with the prisoners along with Michonnes fight was scaled way back.I dont know if that was just to much for AMC or it just didnt fit into the context of the show.Michonnes hatred of the Governor doesnt have the validity it did in the comic.That is unless there is some history between the two that we,and Philip are not aware of now.Its going to be interesting to see whetere the charters continue to die from here on to the end of the season.Carol,Merle,all of Tyrees group,Judith,and Hershel, are my bets to go.The Governor and maybe Andrea along with a lot of Woodbury residents on the other side.
