truth, but still annoying as shit. ridiculous that he is still alive in this series.
I understand the necessity of aging the characters and making the really fat folks thinner, but I think Sam's character has suffered the most from that alteration. Book Sam is like 14, morbidly obese and emotionally abused. So the fact that he's pathetic elicits some sympathy and as a reader, you're thinking, "with a little guidance and friendship, he could turn out to be someone worthwhile". Whereas, in the show he's like 20 and pudgy, so all you can think is, "get your shit together, you useless asshat."
