Critic Consensus: The introduction of new characters and a face-off (or eye-off) between The Governor and Michonne make "Made to Suffer" a gripping episode as season three enters its mid-season break.

Critic reviews for Made to Suffer
Last night's episode dropped the dominoes quite effectively and demonstrated again how this show has so summarily closed the gap between its production value and its story value.
I have to tell you: This may have been my favorite scene since the pilot. For once, the world felt bigger! And, more important, it was filled with people who weren't the people we already knew!
As someone who's been fairly hard on The Walking Dead's second season, I have to commend the show's creative team for the first half of the third season, which is easily the strongest run in the history of the show.
The show's tendency to kill off one black male in order to bring a new one into the cast has gone beyond slightly amusing and headed straight toward offensive.
Not only do we have lots of new characters to interact with, but the action sequences within the town were some of the best scenes the show has ever done.
