Something that most people fail to realise, is that the written medium are completely different to the visual medium and require an entirely different approach to story telling. Some changes (or in your case ruining) would need to be made. The stalling of everything builds character and plot development which is necessary in television, and in the apocalypse it invokes a sense of despair as the characters struggle to survive, it made season 2 quite boring, but they've found a good balance for Season 3 so far. If your idea of a zombie apocalypse is a never ending bombardment of zombies and fighting, every episode would just be a zombie bloodbath which would get tiresome after a couple episodes and would surely "ruin" the show, it wouldn't work for television.
I'm not complaining about season 3 (though it's had its lame moments, IMO), because it's been very cool so far. But you can't tell me with a straight face that season 2 was good.
Daryl and Merle are really cool characters, and I also like what they've done with Herschel and some other characters. I'm starting to find Rick annoying, though.
On the last episode, I have one question: WHY THE HELL ANDREA LEFT THE GOVERNOR'S TRUCK THERE? (uhm, spoilers, I guess). She could've taken it or at least cut the tires (she had a knife, right?).
