TOMATOMETER

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.

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.

It's a good setup.

The hunt for the missing girl finally spun off another decent storyline, albeit one that was resolved entirely too soon.

I've reached a point where my expectations have adjusted to the show's basic flaws, and while I'm not willing to give a pass on those flaws, I also don't consider them a dealbreaker.
