Carried by its charming cast, Modern Love sweet and simple sensibilities are easy enough to enjoy, even if its quaint portrait of modern life in New York City doesn't always ring true.
"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.
If last week's season premiere of The Walking Dead teased the promise of a rebound from the choppy second season, this week's episode pivots forward into more fruitful dramatic terrain.
Fellow viewers, that was a dynamite second episode of the season.
[S]o far, the season is playing to its strengths, making 'Sick' one of the best episodes of the series so far.
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.
If "Sick" did one thing absolutely right, it was instilling the notion that time is slowly changing the mindset of each and every character, losing social civility and morphing them into the zombie killing survivors we see standing before us.
"Sick" was better than brains. It was one of the most complete episodes of The Walking Dead yet because it spilled plenty of blood and zombie guts, added serious threats from non-zombies, and featured family drama without ever losing stride.
While not as strong as the season premiere, the second episode of Season 3 kept up the momentum, with the struggle to save Hershel's life intermixed with Rick and the group getting to know those prisoners they came across last week.
