Cast & Crew
Theodore 'T-Dog' Douglas
I love this show. This particular episode certainly could have used more zombie deaths. But Boondock losing his mind, eating squirrels, and making a zombie-ear necklace made up for it.
For all the tragedy and hopelessness prevalent in the survivors' lives, there exists a healthy amount of humor on The Walking Dead.
While some of what was done and said in this week's installment was significant, much of it felt like pure preamble for the final two episodes in part one of season two.
The problem is, for the most part, we haven't learned anything new about any of them. The characters aren't getting deeper; they're just more familiar.
The hunt for the missing girl finally spun off another decent storyline, albeit one that was resolved entirely too soon.
[T]here is still way too much formulaic convention at the heart of the plot, and even the few strong moments are followed up by the usual ignorant self-absorbed reaction that is all too common from this band of dysfunctional survivors.
"Chupacabra..." is mostly devoted to the show's two most interesting characters.
"Chupacabra" continued to feel like a calm before the storm.
As a look at Daryl Dixon and how badass he is, it was certainly a success.
