The Walking Dead - Season 2, Episode 5 - Rotten Tomatoes


Critic Consensus: By focusing on Daryl Dixon, "Chupacabra" takes a step forward in the story, but still feels like it's the set-up for something larger.

Critic reviews for Chupacabra

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.

More Darryl and less Rick/Shane/Lori drama, please.

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.

"Chupacabra..." is mostly devoted to the show's two most interesting characters.

"Chupacabra" continued to feel like a calm before the storm.
