  • So Boring

    4.0
    This was plain boring from start to finish, nothing really happened. The main focus was on Carl, who did nothing of interest.

    There was way too much Carl in this episode. His parts were painful TV at times. but I liked the episode overall. A bit slow, but also a good pace as it was a break from the chaos that ended the first half of this season.
  • Despair

    This level of real human emotion, just allowed to pour out, hasn't been around for a number of seasons and it was lovely to see it return. Carl's really come into his own and even though he wants to be the typical rebellious teenager, he knows the world's different and that he really does need others to make it. All the things he voiced were delivered perfectly. And Michonne. Finally some backstory there and egads was it brilliant. It all wrapped up beautifully with her happening across Rick and Carl. Best episode of the season, so far.moreless

    I thought the episode was tense and very intimate. This episode reaffirms how much we care about these two, regardless of the way Rick says Carl... "Quoarl". Survival is the core of the show, not tanks and machine guns. This episode is setting up a sweet season.
  • Wow, maybe the most boring episode of The Walking Dead... o_O

    3.0
    The episode is maybe the most boring episode of the whole series. NOTHING happens. 90% of the episode we see nothing happening, except for people staring around. Dialogue amount: one papersheet?

    I tried to watch the episode more than once, first time i switched off after 1/3, because i was bored. The second try i gave it, at the end i skipped forward, honestly.

    I don't know what to add, there was no action, no tension, bla. Ether cause of MAJOR budget-cut to the series, or something else - this episode sucked hard. And as i could see in the preview - the next episode is again about single people of the group wandering around and staring around, thinking.

    I seriosly think about to skip the next episode. Boo, Walking Dead, boo!moreless
