Critic Reviews for Ouroboros

For fans that have felt Fear the Walking Dead has yet to fully hit its stride (Admittedly, I'm one of them), this is easily the best episode of the season. The crossover with Flight 462, no matter where it goes, is a nice touch.

Ooooh. Strand is going for downright evil, isn't he?

Moderately better than the first two weeks, the characters had action come to them instead of actively seeking it out, but the idiotic moves continue to hold the show back.

Although I've had my share of problems with how Fear has sought to reconfigure itself on the fly, I can't deny how fascinating it is to watch a show slowly make the necessary adjustments and discoveries.

Fear The Walking Dead makes the jump from Fine, I Suppose to Generally Quite Watchable.

Yes, the constantly changing locations are nice. But it's even better that the people passing through them have begun to get their hands bloody.

This atmospheric entry concerns itself with personal responsibility, a seemingly straightforward concept that gets murky in light of impossible decisions.

"Ouroboros" benefited greatly from some intense zombie action and the inclusion of the two main characters from the Flight 462 tie-in series. Not that you'd need to watch the webisodes to enjoy this chapter.

Other, more nimble storytellers have used the zombie narrative to criticize capitalism and consumerism. But it remains unclear what FTWD hopes to achieve with this walker/addict comparison.

Can't we trade Charlie for Chris? Can it get any worse than him?
