Critic reviews for Tell It to the Frogs

Despite the ever-expanding size of the cast, this episode made it clear that for now at least, The Walking Dead is Rick's story.

This shows gets better and better, a shame there is only 3 episodes to go.

This episode was a little slower than I would have liked, but it did allow for some good character development.

May 21, 2015 | Rating: 3.7/5 | Full Review…

So half-way through the inaugural, and ground-breaking season, and The Walking Dead shows no sign of limping into an early grave.

It... expanded on the ongoing survival premise of this series, which distinguishes an ongoing survival ordeal to the action of a two-hour, closed-ended zombie movie

This sloppy dialogue is worrying, especially for a show that's supposed to be a notch above a standard zombie flick.
