Danai Gurira as Michonne
Having watched HBO’s Treme, I know that Danai Gurira has the chops (pun intended) to play Michonne on AMC’s The Walking Dead… Assuming, of course, TWD producers actually follow through on their latest promises to ramp up the Season 3 action and allow Michonne to do her thing to more than one zombie per episode.
(The following is NOT really a SPOILER… Just common sense.)
Followers of the comic know the Prison shown at the end of the Season 2 finale is stuffed with walking dead prisoners (and guards, etc)… So hopefully AMC has loosened their pursestrings enough for there to be a completely new kind of horde facing our intrepid survivors. (Whenever they finally get there.)
If I see only 10 or 20 zombies pour out of that prison, I’m liable to turn off the TV and be done with it all. But, more likely, I’ll just mumble, “Awww… Damn” again and keep watching.
When you enjoy a comic book as much as I love The Walking Dead– it’s hard to turn away from any adaptation– no matter how chintzy the production seems at times.
