  • Rick is reunited with his family.

    This was a fantastic episode which started just after Rick and his group left the city and in this episode he is reunited with his wife and son but then straight away he feels he has to go and save Rooker who is still on top of the building This episode shows that the walkers aren't the only worry because the camp could quite easily turn against each other now that Rooker's brother finds out he is dead and Lori said not to take his aggression out on her and he never but he taken it out on another member of the group who deserved it but Shane definitely taken it too far.moreless
  • So Slow

    There's really no other way to describe this episode, especially after the first two. It's slow. It starts off piquing the viewer's interest with the man left behind (which introduces a great way to show us more about the personalities of the characters), but very quickly becomes monotonous and boring. The opening and Rick reuniting with his family are really the only bits I remember.
  • 1x03 - Tell It to the Frogs

    This episode was okay. The drama of Lori and Shanes makes me roll my eyes a little but that's just I prefer more action/explosions/zombie killing.
  • Alright

    It was good gave a little about why Rick wife was mad at Rick best friend, I guess that didn't play out well at all. Not a lot of zombie action but I expected that would like to know more about the characters of this show. Which we did so I am happy about that, Rick and 3 others decided to go back to get Daryl brother back. Only to find something else entirely. So hopefully something exciting happens in the next coming event that unfold, at least I can say that story is really good in my opinion. But would like to know how did this outbreak started out in the first place and is this the whole world or just in their area. It would be nice to know the current situation about the outbreak.moreless
  • After an amazing series premier we get two wasted episodes in a row. Not the best way to start a series like this but DAMMIT I'm still holding out hope it will get better.moreless

    Three episodes in and still we get let down with not a single human survivor not even some extra getting taken down by zombies. 20 minutes of commercials. 35 minutes of actionless dialogue. 5 minutes of real zombie survivalism. Just like episode two. Oh and the whole thing about the wife being all mad now because Shane lied to her about Rick being dead is suppose to make us like her again? Seriously!? I could do without the whole love triangle business. It's terribly written filler BS added on top of what is actually in the comic. It ruins the story almost beyond repair with each passing episode and WAY too much time is devoted to it.

    Total let down so far. I hope they pick it up with the next episode.moreless
