Critic reviews for Isolation

We're deeply concerned about the fates of most of the characters and for once, they're not in danger because one or all of them did something so painfully stupid it made us want to turn the TV off.

We were intrigued to see what "Isolation" did with a quieter, more character-driven hour, albeit one that still had some spectacular zombie visuals.

The writers and directors were smart to realize that even the outrageous novelty of the zombie apocalypse had a shelf life... it makes sense now to spin the camera around and focus on the group itself.

It was the third strong installment in a row of the improved and more complete The Walking Dead. It's almost time to officially declare that the writers have recognized what did and didn't work in the series' previous seasons.

The biggest shockers of Sunday night's Walking Dead occurred at the very beginning and at the very end. In the middle? Well, there was a whole lot of coughing.

Carol has grown and developed as a character in a very short time, something we were hoping for when this season started. But she's also proven impatient and impulsive, personified in her nearly deadly mission outside the wire to fix the water hose.
