4/5 91% The Walking Dead: Season 9 - Adaptation (TV Episode) Here we are more than halfway through the season. And the fact that Rick's absence hasn't negatively impacted the overall pacing is worth noting. However, that doesn't mean the writing isn't still prone to falling into a creative rut from time to time. - TV Fanatic EDIT

4.5/5 80% The Walking Dead: Season 9 - Evolution (TV Episode) "Evolution" was exactly the episode that The Walking Dead needed going into its hiatus, as it pushed the series into uncharted territory with a hefty -- and shocking -- reveal of the series' newest threat. - TV Fanatic EDIT

3.5/5 79% The Walking Dead: Season 9 - Stradivarius (TV Episode) Often felt sluggish and unfocused... That doesn't necessarily mean "Stradavarius" was throwaway or filler, as it did set a few things in motion and provided some insight into some interesting developments that have taken place since the time jump. - TV Fanatic EDIT

4.5/5 83% The Walking Dead: Season 9 - Who Are You Now? (TV Episode) Granted, it's only one episode, but the fact that The Walking Dead has found a way to continue telling compelling stories without its star is an extremely promising sign. - TV Fanatic EDIT

4.7/5 76% The Walking Dead: Season 9 - What Comes After (TV Episode) "What Comes After" was easily the best episode of the season, and one of the best episodes of this series to date. Although Rick's arc came to an unsatisfying end, the episode was overall a beautiful send-off FOR the character. - TV Fanatic EDIT

4.5/5 90% The Walking Dead: Season 9 - The Obliged (TV Episode) I couldn't help but draw a parallel between Rick's vision for the future and the bridge. Just like the world that's been built, the bridge was in severe jeopardy of crumbling. - TV Fanatic EDIT

4.5/5 100% The Walking Dead: Season 9 - Warning Signs (TV Episode) How adorable was it seeing Rick, Michonne, and Judith have their little family fun day? It was very refreshing to see, as those wholesome, feel-good, Hallmark channel moments are far and few between on this series. - TV Fanatic EDIT

4/5 100% The Walking Dead: Season 9 - The Bridge (TV Episode) It was good to see someone be appreciative as opposed to questioning Rick's leadership for once, even though that leadership did end up costing Aaron an appendage. - TV Fanatic EDIT

4/5 96% The Walking Dead: Season 9 - A New Beginning (TV Episode) This episode wasn't the typical action-packed season premiere we're accustomed to, as it took a relatively calm route to explore a brand new world and distinguish itself from previous seasons. - TV Fanatic EDIT

3.2/5 67% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 4 - I Lose Myself (TV Episode) Overall, I did enjoy this season -- despite my recent reviews hinting otherwise. It's just unfortunate that while Martha was trying to make everyone else "strong," she ended up making the second half of the season weak. - TV Fanatic EDIT

3.8/5 63% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 4 - MM 54 (TV Episode) This episode did have its share of odd narrative choices, such as the herd's relentless pursuit, and Alicia's desire for a beach day, but at least we learned some key backstory details regarding the newbies, even if Martha's story left a lot to be desired - TV Fanatic EDIT

4/5 65% The Walking Dead: Season 8 - Dead or Alive Or (TV Episode) I am pleasantly surprised that The Walking Dead actually showed some restraint with not using this (swamp) scenario as an excuse to kill off some characters just for the sake of doing so or to simply throw a little gore into the episode. - TV Fanatic EDIT

3.8/5 86% The Walking Dead: Season 8 - The Lost and the Plunderers (TV Episode) The format of this episode was unlike anything we've seen before on The Walking Dead, and while I wasn't a particular fan of jumping around in time, it served its purpose -- for better or worse -- in pushing the story forward. - TV Fanatic EDIT

4/5 76% The Walking Dead: Season 8 - Time for After (TV Episode) "Time for After" put more focus toward a smaller variety of characters.

3.8/5 35% The Walking Dead: Season 8 - The King, the Widow, and Rick (TV Episode) With only two episode's left until The Walking Dead goes on its winter hiatus, I can understand the need to fit in these smaller stories. It just could have been handled much better. - TV Fanatic EDIT

4.5/5 81% The Walking Dead: Season 8 - The Big Scary U (TV Episode) While the first four episodes of the season were heavy on action, "The Big Scary U" took a significantly dialed back approach. But that didn't mean nothing fun or exciting happened during the hour. - TV Fanatic EDIT

3/5 100% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 3 - Brother's Keeper (TV Episode) I'm torn because this episode could have been so much more than it was. It had a lot going for it, but the retreading of what The Walking Dead did with the same material is still too fresh in our minds for this episode to have had the impact it wanted. - TV Fanatic EDIT
