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.

...delivers on the action and mayhem that the previous finally lacked, which doesn't quite make up for delaying the conflict an additional season, but certainly satisfies it its own right.

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.

The show can be applauded for finding what it is these deaths can mean and signify, and for demonstrating it as well as it did in 'Too Far Gone.'

Boy oh boy was "Too Far Gone" all over the map in terms of tone, quality and a general sense of direction (or the lack thereof).

Characters enter and leave in ones and twos, strutting and fretting their hours upon the stage, but the anchor of The Walking Dead is the core group. The Governor was a huge part of the story, but in the end, his story hand simply run out.

This episode reminded me of the end of season two, but on steroids.

"Too Far Gone" rebounded from a shaky couple of weeks in a very satisfying way and offered up some of the most emotionally wrenching moments this season, if not in the series.

Jul 8, 2015 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

The main reason "Too Far Gone" gives hope for the future of the series and these characters is that its emotional payoff materializes before the shower of gunfire and explosions that pervade the final act of the episode.
