"TS-19" closes out The Walking Dead's debut season by offering the answers to key questions while advancing the show's overall arc.
What's appealing about the story is that quite often, the drama is mundane, having more to do with family and interpersonal relationships rather than Big Philosophical Questions about life, death, and hope.
It gave viewers a chance to see the group's inner emotions and thoughts.
Very smartly in this episode we get a brief insight into the work of Dr. Edwin Jenner (who we met briefly at the end of the last episode) and what he is doing all alone in the underground base.
"TS-19″ was just as great as all the previous episodes of the series. When I watch The Walking Dead, I forget that I'm not watching a movie, and am ALWAYS disappointed when the credits roll.
Still, after this finale, it's clear that the series needs to shake something up, because, yet again, it took a terrific, compelling, original-for-TV premise that could be so good - and sunk it with tired old clichés.
The show has gotten a good start, and now it has time for the improvements that would put it (with channelmates Mad Men and Breaking Bad) in the top tier of current TV dramas.
"TS-19" didn't satisfy me as a season finale, but I'm still very much into The Walking Dead, and I look forward to picking up from here with all of you next year.
After six episodes, the characters are worth caring about. Despite occasional stilted monologues, quick tempers and unfortunate stereotypes, the few living souls in The Walking Dead are a bigger draw than the undead.
And so ends The Walking Dead's first season. "TS-19" was a solid installment of the show, going very "off book" when it comes to the comics, but telling a compelling, intense story within its hour.
The finale entertained, yes, but also left us a little shell-shocked and bummed out for our survivors.
