The Walking Dead – S01E06 – TS-19 Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

The Walking Dead's first season has made us all raise a lot of questions and until now, very few answers have been provided. Thankfully, we got a few of those questions answered in what I would call a rather half-assed season finale. I'll get to the criticism soon, but for now, let's look back at those early walker days... Earlier this season, Lori Grimes (Sarah Wayne Callies) put blame for believing her husband was dead on Shane Walsh's (Jon Bernthal) shoulders. ... Read More

The Walking Dead – S01E05 – Wildfire Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

For our brave group of survivors, the late-night attack took its toll. Not only did they lose people, but Jim (Andrew Rothenberg) suffered a bite, something he tried to hide from the group. In the aftermath, fingers were being pointed at Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) for his decision to head to Atlanta for Merle Dixon (Michael Rooker) and the cache of weapons. Speaking of Merle, where in the hell is this guy? He hasn't shown up anywhere, alive ... Read More

The Walking Dead – S01E04 – Vatos Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

As far as powerful episodes go, it doesn't get more powerful than "Vatos." While we still didn't get to see what's going on with Merle Dixon (Michael Rooker), we did get to see some of what the man's been up to. His strength is incredible. It's hard to imagine going through everything Merle seems to have, even cauterizing his severed arm in the kitchen. There is one issue I have with Merle's little journey. When they showed the broken ... Read More

The Walking Dead – S01E03 – Tell it to the Frogs Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

The much-anticipated reunion of Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies), and Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs) featured a lot fewer fireworks than I had anticipated. I honestly thought Lori or Shane (Jon Bernthal) would tell Rick about their knocking boots all this time, but it never happened. It seems their relationship was even kept quiet from the rest of the group, making the reunion only awkward for Lori and Shane. The revelation that Lori learned of her husband's supposed ...

The Walking Dead – S01E02 – Guts Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

Having met our main character, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), we were able to get a better grasp on who the rest of the characters were for the series in the "Guts" episode. The first episode left us with a young male voice coming in over the radio of the tank and it turned out to belong to a young Korean man named Glenn (Steven Yeun). He was in the area because he was in Atlanta for food and other supplies. He ... Read More

The Walking Dead – S01E01 – Days Gone Bye Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

I admit I'm totally late to the zombie party that is The Walking Dead. This AMC series did exceptionally well with ratings and critics. Fans of the Robert Kirkman-created comic book series came back, episode after episode, clamoring for more zombies and I can't really blame them. The TV series adaptation works well. We're introduced to the series' hero, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) right away. He blows away a child zombie in a pretty brutal scene that was released ... Read More
