Critic reviews for Sick

"Sick" reinforced the season premiere's message: This season is going to be darker, grittier, and gorier. Rick in particular has changed.

At this point, with the terror cranked up to 11, the familial discord rings true but feels hollow. Blood runs thicker than water, yes. But on The Walking Dead the blood doesn't stop running long enough for me to care.

This is first class genre writing and it's a joy to see. More, please.

The surprising reveal of the five inmates within the prison adds a lot of worthwhile drama to "Sick."

Truly, this was outstanding. It's clear that this season is grittier, bloodier and finding that great combination of pacing when it comes to the action and those character moments.

The Rick we see now is unforgiving.
