Critic reviews for Cherokee Rose
Unless our heroes get moving again, they're stuck - not only physically, but in a show that, from a distance, appears to be the sort of thing worth getting invested in, but be warned: Too much exposure can be fatal. Fatally boring, that is.
It can't be easy to forget about the man you've murdered when you're wearing his baggy overalls and forced to eulogize him in front of his girlfriend. But on tonight's Walking Dead, Shane pulls it off, almost as well as he rocks a new buzz cut.
We don't expect the show to be an action romp, but surely there's some happy halfway point between shoot 'em up action and sitting around and discussing your options ad nauseam.
For the most part, the episode was simply a catch of breath, and even the final twist at the end came as little surprise. We've had plenty of funerals; all we need now is a birth.
