    CB I loved this part of the story so much. I think Andy is our spirit (woodland creature) animal :lol:

    "But that’s not to say that Morgan always has the last laugh. “The other day he was smiling and carrying on so much he pulled a rib muscle,” laughs Lincoln, clearly relishing this story waaaaaay too much. “He doubled down in pain. I was like, ‘Yeah, take that motherf—er!’ And it wasn’t even during a take. It was a rehearsal!”" :lol: :lol:

    And Lincoln was not the only one who took delight in Morgan’s momentary pain. “Oh, everybody did!” says Lincoln, still beaming. “No one went to help him. We just went, ‘There you go. Suck it up, sunshine!’” :negan:

    Oh this article....I loved it! And I can easily imagine JDM injuring his ribs/back/neck with his weird, exaggerated movements.

    Andy is one of us in spirit, I just know it! :unicorn::holdheart:

    No because even the article @Clutterbuck referenced about Andy laughing at JDM pulling a muscle had to include Norman.

    Dalton just had to go to NR to confirm what Andy said was true. Wasn't JDM recount enough to collaborate Andy's story.....but no :dale:

    I swear Dalton is a fan girl and has probably thrown his panties at NR :ogg:

    lol, that was the part that made me ask. I'd also just finished reading/viewing the one with video, so the combo had me in Dale-judgment mode :lol:

    The way he talks is probably what bothers me the most. He speaks like an entitled, fratty douche that I'd gladly set fire to :hot::mal:

    Negan is reminding me of when Al Pacino does hammy movies. JDM is not Pacino.

    Negan is frustrating in all the wrong ways.

    I imagine this is what the scripts look like for these episodes:

    Rick looks away for a moment to compose himself, trying to keep his anger in check. He looks back at Negan.

    Negan

    Negan runs off at the mouth ad nauseum. I am not a comic reader...is it supposed to be charming? Does he get high, or something? When he said that about seeing some "freaky deaky", (it took me way back) I could feel myself want to slap him. He even referred to Olivia as "fat", the second time he referred to someone as "fat". Now, that is a bridge too far

    Some guy on 4chan described Negan's daily routine and I'm laughing so hard because - WHAT THE FUCK - this is so accurate.

    I hate him so much. :harold:

    I want to laugh but I'm just getting more pissed because this SHIT IS ACCURATE! Negan is nothing more than a caricature of his already exaggerated GN self.

    What have they done to my show?D:

    I dunno. I find Negan compelling in the sense that I hate him and can't wait until he is taken down a peg or two. But I don't like the character at all and all I see is a gross, predictable bully. I'm seriously at a lost as to why TPTB didn't see how marketing Negan is The Head Survivor in Charge was a good idea. Making the GA think he is going to be the center of the show for a long time just depresses them. I hope that Negan will get more interesting once his power is gone and Rick has the upper hand?

    I've gone back and read some of the comic panels to try and pinpoint where it went wrong, and I think it's a mix of a few things:
    1. What works in print doesn't always work on screen. While Negan's colorful rants and monologues can be amusing to a reader, when spoken aloud they can just kind of go on and on without much of a point.
    2. The posturing. The way JDM throws his head, grins, and leans back -- it just makes him seem like a pre-teen who has chugged one too many pixie sticks. Just high-octane sugar rush. No one acts like that in real life. Negan didn't do that shit in the comic even.
    Honestly they could've remedied this in a few ways:
    1. I could've even accepted the juvenile language and nursery rhymes if they'd just toned it all the fuck down. Like dialed his word count back by about 5,000 and not have him parade around like a cartoon rooster. I could take a few "Easy squeazys" and weird lines if they were sparingly used. In fact, I think if they were used less often they'd be more effective.
    2. Just gone about Negan a whole different way. I always thought the best adaptation would've been to make Negan more like a ruthless mob boss with a cunning intellect and a quirky sense of humor. He could've still had some oddball humor to him, but make him more "business-like" in decorum. Instead of acting like some S&M fantasy come to life, have him act like what he did to Rick was more of a business deal. You know, "Sorry, Rick, it's a tough lesson. But it's just business." Not like some sadist jacking off.
    In any case, this show does currently have a Negan problem. I don't even think it's so much JDM. I think he's a fabulous actor in other roles he's had, but the directors/writers apparently went this way with Negan and I don't even know why. It's just not working.

    I just think they should have toned him down, just a little, for the show. Yes, this is a show about zombies and there is a fantastical element to it, but generally, TWD world feels real. And having some laughing maniac treat the characters that the writers have forced us to bond with like garbage is jarring for most people.
