Critic reviews for Triggerfinger

Unless a star-crossed Korean couple and an Iraqi torturer parachute into Hershel's farm, we're stuck with these squabbling zeroes for the foreseeable future. And as long as that's the case it will lead to all sorts of character-based confusion.

People were finally talking about something new; about things that have relatable consequences and understandable emotional fallout.

We should know and care enough about the main characters that time spent on letting them talk and argue should be as compelling as the moments when the walkers are coming and the guns have come out.

"Triggerfinger" brought back to life the intensity and pulse-pounding thrills that seemed to have taken a nap on much of the early half of season 2.

At this point in the series, the walkers have become more of a pervasive problem than a scream-inducing mystery for the characters, and Lori dispatches two of them rather quickly, earning a few points for style in the case of the windshield zombie.

That is how I felt watching the second half of Walking Dead last night, like I just couldn't understand why it was acting so rudely when just half an hour before it had been my friend. In my heart, I knew it was better than that.
