News & Interviews for The Walking Dead: Season 5
What ensues is a dizzying, turbocharged confrontation designed to keep your nerves in a vise (or your stomach in knots). Of course, it's all punctuated with the violent reverie of an all-out zombie splat-fest. So, basically, it's The Walking Dead on crank
The episode moves along at a good pace, with only a couple of moments when the timing feels a little too coincidental.
The show's fifth season seems much more propulsive, setting up new plots and then moving through them with surprising haste.
The Walking Dead team delivered an action-packed premiere that played like a World War II movie.
Suddenly, we don't have to talk about The Walking Dead as an anomaly on AMC's schedule of masterful dramas. It's fitting right in.
Does The Walking Dead outdo itself with this season premiere? Of course, but "outdo" is what The Walking Dead does. This is not a series content to recycle visual ideas over and over even if it's a little less resistant to recycling thematic ones.
Audience Reviews for The Walking Dead: Season 5
The fifth season of The Walking Dead is a bloody-good & entertaining batch of episodes. Filled with stylistic directions and storytelling along with enticing dramatization of the characters, this season give fans everything and more, which continuously builds up this acclaimed series. 4.5/5
This season 5 of The Walking Dead featured some of its best episodes but definitely some of their worse too, making it a very uneven and unbalanced season as usual with this show. When it's able to create amazing moments of tension and terror, like the fantastic season opener, and at the same time being able to flesh out some characters in the process, that's when it works the best. When you have dedicated episodes of these guys taking shelter from a storm, an entire episode with an awful hipstery filter fest, even more cringy dialogue and ridiculous death scenes that mean nothing other than just being shocking and violent; well that's when the show suffers. And it suffers far too often to be considered great television. This is probably my last season of TWD, there just isn't much holding me onto it, asides from unintentionally bad dialogues that always make me smile.
Explosive (literally) premiere episode for Season 5 or the hit AMC series! Loved every minute of it! I very rare moment of happiness for these beloved characters, which I can only assume will be met with blood and heartbreak as the season progresses. High hopes for this season! Hopefully, they do not disappoint.
