After last week’s astounding, character focused episode, it was unfortunate to see “Arrow on the Doorstep” return to the unfocused conflict between Rick and the Governor. While it did set up the final events leading to the end of the season, “Arrow on the Doorpost” felt forced and a way to progress the inevitable, and likely bloody, battlebetween the Prison and Woodbury.

This season of  The Walking Dead has been going strong. With some wonderful performances and scenes that feel ripped right from the pages of Kirkman’s comic series, this season of the Walking Dead has come to prove what this series is capable of. “Hounded” however, came off as a different breed of animal. While I did not find it to be as poor as “Killer Within”, this weeks episode felt out of place- a middle man of sorts-  and ultimately felt like a brief introduction into the second half of this already halved season, the remaining eight episode airing in the new year.

Thoughts on The Walking Dead: Say the Word

All work and no play makes Rick a dull boy

So far this season of The Walking Dead has been a great success. While there have been one or two hiccups, particularly last week’s massacre at the prison, so far this season has wonderfully been able to blend the comics and new material into forty-five minutes of sheer excitement. Say the Word picked up the pace once again, even though it had alot of ground to cover.
