Though it relies on familiar themes, "Nebraska" successfully addresses the fallout of the previous episode and forges ahead slowly but confidently.

Critic Reviews for Nebraska

The fact that episode author Evan Reilly has to rehash this weighty claptrap yet again... only serves to highlight the narrative cul-de-sac this show has written itself into, one not even a four-wheel drive, product-placed Hyundai could escape.

There is life after death of a different kind on AMC's The Walking Dead as the survivors deal with the discovery that little Sophia was a zombie.

To watch a ragtag group of survivors engage in a fluid conversation was satisfying, even if those new faces were a mere one-off. And Hershel as the tipsy elder in the room was, for a moment, pleasant.

It's bad enough that everyone is back to their old ways so quickly, but the fact that the words Sophia and search are even being said together out loud make me wish time travel were real just so I could go back and un-invent language.

If The Walking Dead can't break out of its current rut, it'll remain just good enough to keep watching every week, and just frustrating enough that I'll question that decision a few times per episode.

It's a solid hour of television, and a promising indication of where the series is headed.

The tone of the [bar] scene is well-crafted (the slow conversation builds a tension unlike anything from this season's first half.

It's time to deal with the fallout in the painfully incremental style for which The Walking Dead has become famous.

It ... I think, is the first time that the show has really nailed the apocalyptic Peckinpah tone since the series premiere - the sense that laughter and smiles are just a cover for impending bloodshed.

We haven't seen one thing to make us think the second half of the series will be any better than the first.

There were obvious character developments from the aftermath and no matter what, they needed to be addressed.

Jul 27, 2015 | Rating: 4.1/5 | Full Review…

It was a mixture of chaos, sadness and zombie killing - a mixture this show can do very well.
