Critic Reviews for Clear

For me, this might be a bigger deal than zombies and booby traps. Call screening. I wouldn't do well in this world.

Last night's masterpiece of melancholy proved that The Walking Dead can, in fact, produce a slower-paced, plot-driven episode focusing on character development without being boring -- when that character's not Andrea, anyway.

"Clear" flies leaps and bounds ahead of the average "quiet," episode, almost reclaiming the emotional resonance many believe to have been missing since the pilot.

Appropriately, it... brings back the quiet, unsettling atmosphere of the pilot, leading to the best episode by far of this back half of season 3, and among the series' very best post-pilot hours.

The Walking Dead has had an on-and-off third season, but Sunday night's episode brought all the show's magic back-and what tense, creepy magic it is.

'Clear' winds up being a good episode that gives Rick, Carl and Michonne a chance to move around and exist (however briefly) in an adventure that seems to really show them off as more complicated characters.

Roadtrip! A change is as good as a rest for this show.

"Clear," the best episode of the third season so far, and possibly the best episode since the pilot, is full of stories we have to put together ourselves.

There's hasn't been another episode quite like it. Because of that, the feel and tone is very different: it's a character study in apocalypse and insanity rather than a blood-and-guts zombie frightfest.

For my money, "Clear" was another shining moment for the series.
