In Season 3 of the AMC zombie drama, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and his band of survivors finally find some shelter from life on the road. There are only two problems with their sanctuary: It's a prison; and it's infested with walkers.

The success of a zombie thriller relies on its ability to surprise within its predictable constraints. To that end, The Walking Dead has fun.
All the tightly constructed zombie attack set pieces in the world can't save a show where the living are less interesting than the dead.
There's no two ways about it: this third season premiere episode is the BEST episode of The Walking Dead since the beginning of the show.
I am hoping that The Walking Dead takes its cues for future episodes from this year's finale, and settles into a long-form storytelling mode comprised of small, stunning stories like this.
Like the comic that inspired it, Mazzara's reconfigured Walking Dead is, above all else, a fine and lean killing machine.
Although a significant improvement over Year 2, the junior season of AMC's hit zombie serial still suffered from some of the problems that have plagued the series throughout its run, namely piss-poor characterizations and momentum-less midseason arcs.
Audience Reviews for The Walking Dead: Season 3
The third season of this apocalyptic infestation is more powerful, emotional and in-depth than any of its previous seasons. The Walking Dead Season 3 constructs a thoroughly fascinating plot/story and blends it with a pack of intrinsic performances from its recurring and brand-new cast members. Combine that with as much blood/gore/violence as you can imagine and you've got yourself and breathtaking season that has twists, turns, drama and suspense in every frame. 5/5
A followup worthy of it's previous season, the highest calibre a whole season has been thus far (2015) and (re)introduces some of the best characters the series has ever, and probably will ever see.
