Critic reviews for Pretty Much Dead Already

And so ends the first half of The Walking Dead's deadly second season, thankfully not with a whimper but with a whole lot of bangs.

The show is perfectly satisfied with painting Sophia, in very broad strokes, as an ordinary 12-year-old girl. If her disappearance is a dominant arc of a season, the character can't be this underdeveloped for drama to be maintained.

The tension slowly ratchets up to an almost unbearable level, leading to those amazing final scenes.

I've been underwhelmed by a good chunk of the season so far, but tonight's closing scene was so effective that I think I'm going to remember it far more strongly over the next two-plus months than I will a lot of the dull moments we got.

Well... I feel weird saying, "I loved it!", but it certainly worked, didn't it? It was very powerful and succeeded as the sucker punch it was intended as.

With the midseason finale, the show delivers not the massive cliffhanger Kirkman had promised was on the horizon, but rather a gut-wrenching denouement to the group's most pressing concern.
