I dunno. Why do people think this will be a rip-off of the godfather? Just because Rick compared it to it? It's normal in the showbusiness to name your inspirations, and every work is inspired by some other work. That doesn't mean it will be a blantant copy or not include something unique. I'm more worried about the focus on CGI. Weird priorities. People won't watch the series because of the best effects ever, on a tv screen it doesn't matter that much anyway, but for the story.
