Why has Michonne still not told the group her name?
Well considering Neither Rick nor probably her planned for her to have any long-term future. As far as they're concerned, she was simply leading them to their people, and that's it. She could disappear afterwards for all they cared.
Why is she going out of her way to hurt the Governor as though the zombie apocalypse and people trying to kill you is personal?
Err, at what point is people trying to kill you, especially when it isn't for any justifiable reason, not personal?
Why did Glenn let Merle get so close when they had him at gunpoint?
Naive? It's why Merle knew it would work.
Why is Glenn a coward in one scene and a badass the next?
What scene would that be? He was badass the moment they captured him. Heck, Merle specifically points out that he's always been fearless. Glenn was never a coward.
Why would Rick leave the prison protected by women, children and a guy he barely knows?
He left it with Carl in charge, believing he could cope, which he did. Also part of Carl's own development.
Besides, what exactly was he supposed to do? Just let Glenn and maggie die at the hands of the governor? Especially she he knows the governor would find out their location and probably come to kill them all if he didn't go back to get them?
Why is everything this season so rushed? On a show that had a better handle on characters we could have had a Ben Linus type episode with Michonne, maybe learned something about her other than she doesn't enjoy talking or blinking. Maybe we could have seen Daryl dealing with leaving the group to find Merle (I'm certain they'll escape and that whole ordeal will be forgotten as they deal with whatever the new problem is).
Because this show isn't lost. For all your love of Lost, it had it's massive flaws. For all it's characters, it's point was stupid and nonesensical, leading to one of the most disappointing tv endings this side of battlestar galactica.
Oh, and they tried the slowburner route in season 2. Everyone moaned.
And IMO, one of the best seasons of lost was season 4, which was action-packed and fast. It's worst season (IMO), was season 3, which was all about character-development.
Pretty much anyone on The Walking Dead could die at this point and I would lose no investment because the show isn't even invested in them. What's the point of a zombie show without compelling characters? Apart from the bipolar way they wrote him as sympathetic or deranged depending on the episode, I loved Shane last season. I still think the episode where him and Rick hash things out is the best since the pilot. And then they killed him and decided they weren't gonna try anymore.
Personally, I find Rick, Carl, Glenn, Maggie (she's hot) and Darryl as interesting characters, along with the governor and Merle. Michonne is stupid and annoying, but we'll see about her. Don't care for the rest though.
Edit: I see most of my points have already been covered.
But your specific questions about certain points in the season are flawed. Most are answerable. Only person that is inconsistent it Michonne.
