I hear Shane is kept alive much longer in the show. I despised him in the comics and I'm going to go into this wanting to hate him in the show as well, but i also hear he is a fan favorite of sorts. We shall see!
Most consider season 2 the weakest. It was still a good season, IMO, but the first half of the season moved at a slower pace, and some people felt the show was moving too slowly.
It also doesn't follow the comic very closely. Some events don't happen in the TV series, some characters are very different from their comic versions, some die sooner/live longer, and some new characters are introduced.
It's a really good series and you should give it chance, just be prepared to see some things go very differently than they do in the comics.
