Critic reviews for Too Far Gone
At long last, after slogging like a one-legged walker through a Georgia mud slick, The Walking Dead reached the Season 4 midway point with all the subtlety of a tank storming a prison wall.
This was the epic showstopper that last season's anticlimactic finale should have been.
It's a testament to Scott Wilson's great acting that Hershel has had one of the most remarkable character arks on The Walking Dead.
As much as I can find problems with The Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 8, the end result gave the show it's chance to head towards something that will hopefully be fresh and new.
The Walking Dead ends 2013 with an episode that's powerful but flawed, that frustrates as much as it thrills.
