The Walking Dead as an entirety has had a great many ups and downs throughout its three seasons. As season two drew to a close last year, and viewers got their first glimpse of the prison, I, along with countless  of others no doubt, grew increasingly anxious about Rick and the prison, as well as meeting the infamous Governor. However, as season three progressed,  I grew less and less hopeful. “Welcome to the Tombs” was the final nail in the coffin as season three came to close in pitiful fashion, easily making this season the worst thus far.

Thoughts on The Walking Dead: I Ain’t A Judas

A Fools Hope

TWD_GP_311_0921_0286Well this season of the Walking Dead is certainly turning out to be another mixed bag. After a strong first half to the season, these last few weeks have been less than stellar, with the show moving at an alarmingly slow pace, and only a few standout moments. Unfortunately, this week turned out to be no different as the writers choose to focus on Andrea. To be fair I did have hope for her to redeem herself, especially since she was going to the prison for the first time, but alas no as “I Ain’t A Judas” turned out to be the worst episode in a season that began so strongly.

Another One Bites The Dust

Unfortunately the ‘big surprise’ felt unwarranted, and felt like a way to quicken the pace of a few slow moving episode. While in all accounts not a horrible episode, “Home” felt like it tried to juggle too many stories and moments and all together came out as a jumbled mess with a surprise ending.

The Battle Begins

After a two month wait, The Walking Dead made its return to television Sunday night. For months fans have been waiting to see the repercussions of Rick’s actions, as well as to see what will happen to Merle and Daryl now that they have been pitted against each in the Govenor’s twisted gladiatorial ring. While the beginning of this episode showed a great deal of promise, this came to be quickly undercut by poor decisions, stupid dialogue, and a few character moments.

Thoughts on The Walking Dead: Sick

New Characters Come to Clash with Rick and his Group

 At the end of last weeks stellar opening, we found Rick and the group struggling to keep one of their own alive, just as a group of new survivors emerged amongst the ruins of the prison. “Sick” may not live up to the excitement and tension that enveloped the first episode; however it certainly provides a solid follow up.

Let me start off by saying that I am a unhealthily obsessed with The Walking Dead comic book series and so when AMC decided to create a show based off of the comics I may have shed a tear of joy. That being said, the television show is not without its issues, as can be seen with how slow season two was near the middle. Thankfully, “Seed” was a much improved way to kick off this season, and certainly brought new life into these characters as well as their situation.
