I thought not. Still, it’s been pretty amusing to listen to some people who don’t like the show because it’s “too _____ (fill in the blank)” and find out they’ve never read the books or watched more than a single episode or part of an episode before ducking out. Or worse, they always operate in Prudish Mode when it comes to their entertainment options. Color yourself No Fun Blue (it’s that crayon you never use in the big box) and put a sheet over your head, I say. Zzzzzz.
In actuality, I’ve only skimmed through one book a friend lent me before giving it back because I didn’t want to become completely tied to the printed work like some fans who pick at the show for not following events EXACTLY as written. The Walking Dead also has some fans who get nuts about continuity, but as I’ve said before, in both cases, MORE story is always a good thing. All action all the time (or too much of it in overkill mode) gets mind-numbing fast (see Starz’ Spartacus series for a good example).
Yeah, you’re entitled to an opinion around these parts, but unless you’re running for office, you’re not entitled to letting your brain do less work than it needs to, I say. A little depth and variety goes a long way (and not only in what you watch on TV, either).
