Arriving at Hilltop. The Walking Dead S6Ep11 Knots Untie - a short opinion

The Walking Dead S6Ep11 Knots Untie – a short opinion

The Walking Dead S6Ep11 Knots Untie – a short opinion This weeks episode of The Walking Dead sets the scene for the final confrontation with Negan, a character whose introduction fans dreaded because of whom he kills in the comics. Looking beyond Negan is the confrontation with The Whisperer’s, something for season 7 I guess. Sadly, I am starting to feel fatigued by the series. This week’s episode may have again pivoted the series, now towards the Hilltop settlement and its leader Gregory,...

Nicholas about to commit suicide. The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead S6Ep3 Thank You review!

The Walking Dead returns with more blood-letting! The Walking Dead has been back for it sixth season for two weeks already, time for a review. Rick’s group have stayed in the Alexandria Safe Zone, but friction between his group and its inhabitants are running high. Rick may mean well, but viewers are left wondering if his group is cursed. Everywhere they go the apparent safety is soon disturbed. This weeks episode, ‘Thank You’, runs parallel with that of last week, now...

The Walking Dead S5Ep11 The Distance Review. Rick hears children laughing

The Walking Dead S5Ep11 The Distance Review

Last week’s episode of TWD was too slow for my taste. I was hoping for more action with The Distance. I was only partly rewarded as the survivors have to deal with some walkers but mostly attempt to figure out whether it is Aaron is telling the truth about the Alexandria Safe-Zone. The Walking Dead S5Ep11 The Distance Review Picking up where the previous episode left off, Maggie and Sasha return to the barn and introduce a stranger, Aaron, to Rick...

The Walking Dead S5Ep10 Them Review. Carol and Daryl share a moment

The Walking Dead S5Ep10 Them Review

The fifth season of The Walking Dead is moving forward at a fast pace. After Beth died in Atlanta and Tyreese died in the previous episode the cast continues to change. TWD is unforgiving. It took a while to warm up to Beth and Tyreese but their deaths were certainly heartbreaking. The series needs to find a new dynamic if it doesn’t want to be remembered for killing off its main cats one by one. Doing so is made difficult...

Carol and Daryl (Norman Reedus) about to be pushed over - The Walking Dead S5Ep6 Consumed Review

The Walking Dead S5Ep6 Consumed Review

The Walking Dead S5Ep6 Consumed Review With the episode ‘Consumed’ TWD fills in the gap of the timeline. It depicts events between Carol and Daryl setting off to find Beth and when Daryl returned to the church. I feel pretty stupid that I forgot that Beth helped Noah escape from the hospital. So it is no surprise who Daryl took with him on his way back. As we have also seen a wounded Carol being helped into the same hospital we...

Abraham says the world can't afford them to wait - The Walking Dead - Self Help - Review

The Walking Dead – Self Help – Review

At this moment The Walking Dead is hopping between storylines every episode. Last week we saw what has become of Beth and this week we follow Eugene, Abraham, Rosita, Tara, Maggie and Glenn on their trek towards DC. However, unbeknown to anyone but Tara Eugene is sabotaging their efforts because he doesn’t want to get to DC before he can make his big revelation. In a badly needed episode we discover the background stories of Abraham and Eugene giving both...

Abraham leaving with Eugene and Glenn - The Walking Dead S5Ep3 Four Walls and a Roof Review

The Walking Dead S5Ep3 Four Walls and a Roof Review

This week’s episode TWD was hotly anticipated, the previous episode ‘Strangers’ ended on a significant cliffhanger. Was Bob infected by walker? Will Gareth die when he eats Bob’s meat? And what the hell are Daryl and Carol up to chasing Beth’s kidnapper? The latter issues won’t be resolved in ‘Four Walls and a Roof’ which deals primarily with Gareth’s attempt to kill and eat everyone in Rick’s group and Gabriel admission of what he had to do to stay alive. It...

The Walking Dead S5Ep2 Strangers Review - Gareth has amputated Bob's leg

The Walking Dead S5Ep2 Strangers Review

After the blood-letting during the season première of The Walking Dead the pace is slowed. Somehow the uncertainty of the circumstances in which Rick and the gang now live are made worse by that slow pace. Don’t be a stranger……… As the gang moves away from Terminus they come across father Gabriel, a priest who has been living alone since the outbreak started. Rick questions how he could have survived and assumes he has been holding back on them. After they reach his...

The Walking Dead S5Ep1 No Sanctuary Review - Throat slit like cattle

The Walking Dead S5Ep1 No Sanctuary Review

I have been an avid fan of TWD since its inception as a TV series. I will admit to not having read the comic books but I do keep up with its progress. TWD is certainly not for the faint hearted, and I am not talking about the zombies, the gore or the physical abuse. I am talking about the drama and suspense. Fan favorite characters do get killed and the audience is frequently left in the dark about pertinent developments. Knowing that the...

The Walking Dead season 4 finale -Daryl and Rick talk about the attack

The Walking Dead Season 4 Finale ‘A’ Review

The Walking Dead has just ended its fantastic fourth season. There were many deaths, and none were without controversy among fans. The Governor had a slightly less of a role than in season 3 but when he was there he was center stage in all his evilness. The Governor of course died in Episode 8 as did Hershel. Some fans disliked the second half of the season because of the way it split the entire gang up. I didn’t mind...
