100% The Walking Dead: Season 3 - Seed (TV Episode) None of the familiar faces are anywhere near as lethal as the first of the new characters introduced in the ultra-violent premiere of Walking Dead's third season. - Wall Street Journal EDIT

100% The Walking Dead: Season 2 - Better Angels (TV Episode) The transformations of both Randall and Shane into zombies even without the bites and scratches known to "transmit" the virus offer a pretty clear sign that there's a little bit of zombie inside everyone who has lived through the apocalypse. - Wall Street Journal EDIT

62% The Walking Dead: Season 2 - Judge, Jury, Executioner (TV Episode) Dale enunciates today's Weighty Theme: "The world we knew is gone, but keeping our humanity - that's a choice." It's a speech he'll get to reprise ad nauseum in what still manages to be a tense and well-turned episode. - Wall Street Journal EDIT

85% The Walking Dead: Season 2 - 18 Miles Out (TV Episode) I was actually concerned that the Academy Awards and tonight's episode, "18 Miles Out," would share a problem: too many speeches. But there was nothing to fear, at least for those of us watching the zombie drama. - Wall Street Journal EDIT

67% The Walking Dead: Season 2 - Nebraska (TV Episode) It's time to deal with the fallout in the painfully incremental style for which The Walking Dead has become famous. - Wall Street Journal EDIT

93% The Walking Dead: Season 2 - Pretty Much Dead Already (TV Episode) Well, for my basic-cable money that was the single best episode in the entire run of "The Walking Dead." - Wall Street Journal EDIT

75% The Walking Dead: Season 2 - Secrets (TV Episode) Things are static in an action sense, but the show's admirably nuanced characters are changing and reacting to the world in surprising and complicated ways. - Wall Street Journal EDIT

77% The Walking Dead: Season 2 - Chupacabra (TV Episode) It's a good setup. - Wall Street Journal EDIT

54% The Walking Dead: Season 2 - Cherokee Rose (TV Episode) In a zombie fantasy like The Walking Dead, the will to survive is expressed over and over again in the simple act of killing zombies without remorse or compunction - that's what is required by the scenario, after all. It's part of why we enjoy this. - Wall Street Journal EDIT
