Just the simple reason that he didnt have gun pointed out and fact that
changed the reason why Rick didn't kill Shane himself in the comic. Id say that show was well played but i still it's identical to what happened in the comic. Except when, where and who. All the pieces are still there.
Yeah, the pieces were there, but I really don't feel it was identical at all. You, yourself, said that the 'when, where, and who' were different, but I'd add that the feeling and the interactions between Rick and Shane were different, as well. The relationship between Rick and Shane was far more complex in the TV series, imo. I think it would have hampered the development of Rick's character, had things ended exactly how they did in the comic.
Anyway, I guess my main point was that I just didn't think it was a censorship issue.
Obviously, this is just my personal opinion, though.
