Critic reviews for Internment

Kudos to Scott Wilson for selling such an emotionally fishy moment with all his hoary soul; it took every ounce of his gravitas and then some.

Despite the dumbness on display, we were on the hook for pretty much the entire hour, helped in no small part by some great performances.

The end result has "Internment" squeaking out the last pathetic rolls of wheel-spinning before the action can truly pick up this season.

While much of the episode was very good and filled with enough tension... there were some scenes that really had to make us wonder how these people managed to survive for so long.

I'm glad we got some time with Hershel.. But it was when everything went crazy again and the walkers seemed destined to take over the prison that the hour picked up for a pretty nonstop ride until the end.

Maybe shifting the setting back and forth from the prison to the veterinary college, and focusing on a more diverse group of characters in a more evenhanded fashion has helped some to overlook some of the tonal issues that have sprung up.
