Something I love to do is meet fellow "The Walking Dead" TV show fans on Facebook and Twitter. Before an episode, we get on Facebook and chat about how excited we are to see the next show. While an episode airs, we tweet like mad and look for a new hashtag introduced during the show. After the TV show, we get back on Facebook or Twitter and chat about how much we like the episode or how much we love or hate certain characters.
We drive people who aren't into the show crazy, but we don't care. We love the show too much to care.
Note: If you’re one of the comics aficionados who hate the TV show fans, save your rants for your snobby forums. The biggest myth from you guys is that the TV show fans don't read. Hate to break it to you, but not all the TV show fans are buffoons who never open a book. I'm a rabid "The Walking Dead" TV show fangirl and an avid reader. (I've probably read more books than you.) So stop believing your own press. The comic book series is the comic book series. The TV show is a separate animal. Deal with it.
Now that that’s out of the way, TV show fans, are you ready?
For Friday Fun, I thought it would be cool to discuss "The Walking Dead" TV show characters I hate. I know you guys can relate, and I'll try not to reveal any spoilers for those who have yet to watch a season three episode.
The Governor aka Snake in the Grass
You get to meet this lovely man, and I mean that sarcastically of course, in season three. He's what I call a snake in the grass. You know? He's the type who smiles in your face and makes you think he's on the up and up. The type who everyone thinks is the smartest and the one who always does the right thing. The type who doesn't reveal his true colors until he's behind closed doors. That's the Governor. If you ever meet a person like him, God help you.
Lori Grimes aka Second-in-Command
There's other things about her that are annoying. In season one, she assumes Rick is dead. So she hooks up with Shane, Rick's partner on the job and best friend. Personally I think it was highly inappropriate for Lori to get with Shane during a zombie apocalypse. I would rather have seen her take some time to mourn her husband, who she assumed was dead, and to be there for her son. When she learns Rick is not dead, she's got Shane and Rick against each other - two guys fighting over a woman who, in my opinion, ain't worth it. And, of course, it's revealed in season two that she's pregnant. Is it Rick's kid or is Shane the baby daddy? Call me crazy, but if I'm living in a post-apocalyptic nightmare, I'm making damn sure I don't get knocked up.
Merle Dixon aka Evil, Crazy Bigot
In season one, we learn that Merle is a crazy bigot. In season three, we learn that not only is he a crazy bigot, he's just downright evil. Even if he hadn't lost his hand in season one he'd probably be evil. But unlike The Governor, Merle has always showed his true colors. We expect nothing less from Merle.
Andrea aka Opportunist
Everyone says Andrea is stupid. I don't think so. I think she's an opportunist. She's a woman who uses men to get what she wants, and she goes against those who help her if she feels it's in her best interest. Michonne saved her butt in season two, but Andrea could not care less. That's an opportunist.

Who’s lurking in Layneworth?Find Litria at Amazon and Goodreads
It’s the Buscettos-a charming family who live in a nice house.
The Buscettos look human, but they’re not human. They’re Zxxtergins, a type of little-known monster who has roamed the Earth since the fifth century. The youngest Buscetto, beautiful eighteen-year-old Litria, is in search of gorgeous females for sex, followed by food. Her nightly behavior wrecks havoc, causing her family to fear exposure and resulting in grave concern, extra work, and late nights for Layneworth detectives.
When nude and mutilated dead women appear, almost daily, across Layneworth, Detective Brenda Martin, and her partner Robert Moretti, are on the case. The mayor, before his untimely demise, preached to beware of werewolves, and few believed him. But as the killings increase, Brenda thinks she may have more than just a serial killer on her hands. Will Brenda discover the true monsters, and what happens if she does?
