88% The Walking Dead: Season 4 - Still (TV Episode) The Walking Dead's writers may have realized they can't create the same tension just by tossing in a few walkers because the zombies just aren't that scary anymore. The solution has been to create tension in tangential way.‐ TIME Magazine

81% The Walking Dead: Season 4 - Inmates (TV Episode) George R. R. Martin crafted a crucial lesson in A Game of Thrones, one that TWD's writers learned well - if you're going to take out a maior character, make it count. It has to be more than just a pivot point in the plot.‐ TIME Magazine

81% The Walking Dead: Season 4 - After (TV Episode) Carl tried to move forward too quickly and Michonne finally moved backwards too ardently. It wasn't always clear that they would meet in the end, but we have to put our group back together somehow, and this was a very good place to start.‐ TIME Magazine

57% The Walking Dead: Season 4 - Dead Weight (TV Episode) Because of the way the story has been laid out, we needed to follow The Governor's post-Woodbury journey, but the reality is the past two eps have been very slow and boring. ‐ TIME Magazine

91% The Walking Dead: Season 4 - Isolation (TV Episode) Carol has grown and developed as a character in a very short time, something we were hoping for when this season started.

67% The Walking Dead: Season 3 - The Suicide King (TV Episode) What we got last night illustrates the problem with mid-season finales.

91% The Walking Dead: Season 2 - Beside the Dying Fire (TV Episode) As Hank Williams allegedly once said to his son Hank Jr., "Always leave them wanting more."
