If you look at Rick in the comic vs. Rick in the show, I think to keep the character likeable and honourable they have shifted some of his demons to Shane: this leaves the television audience still enamoured with Rick but allows for the descent into madness/chaos that we watch unfold in the graphic-novels. I am personally all for it. As Bob T Guy once said to me "I stopped reading the comic because it became a 'how much **** can I pile on Rick' comic". Reading the graphic novels was tough if you began to like characters, which for TV-land is a necessity.
