Critic reviews for The Dead

We're in it for the long haul because we know it's going to surprise us. And besides, there hasn't been a season of this show yet where the writing didn't disappoint, especially around the middle of the season.

It's a great twist that works in more ways than one.

Tonight's episode mainly paired most of the main cast in teams of two to varying degrees of entertainment.

Loved the MMB/Marie/Queenie stuff, loved the Zoe/Spalding stuff... liked the Fiona having sex with Axeman a whole lot less. Fun episode, but not the best. The show however, still is.

Lange is a great talent who gets all the best material -- it's as if the writers expend all their creative energy on fleshing out Fiona and, exhausted, hand out whatever dribs and drabs they can to the rest of the characters.

"It wasn't only a different time. It was a different world," LaLaurie pleads with Queenie. It is a testament to Kathy Bates' phenomenal acting skills that her statement holds any emotional or narrative water whatsoever, because come on.
