I really enjoyed the episode last night, a lot.
I hated to see Herschel go, but when he was captured at the beginning I figured he'd be taking Tyreese's spot from the comic. BTW, I just finished reading Compendium 1. I'm waiting for C2 to show up in the mail.
I figure everyone will meet up somewhere on the road, at least a few of the main characters will. I don't see how they could just push Rick/Carl off on their own and still maintain the other characters who were able to bolt on the bus, or neglect to bring fan favorite Darryl back.
I was wondering a bit about the tank. Like you guys have mentioned, why are they shooting holes in their potential home? And second, why in the world did they have an M60? Those haven't been used in service is more than 15 years. I know one guy was supposed to be NG and bolted with a tank, but in this era that would have been an M1. Oh well, suspend belief. I'm sure in the real world an Abrams would have been much harder to get on loan. Also in the comic, the driver had spent months trying to figure out how to drive it and the main gun was never used.
All in all I liked the episode. My wife only passively watches the show because I've got it on. She and I are both in agreement the hardest part of the show, especially last night, is seeing the kids die. Even if its just TV, as a parent it's a kick in the gut to watch that.
