Critic Reviews for Four Walls and a Roof

Last night's episode wasted little time in confirming two big hunches from the week before.

If you're still reeling from last week's gruesome denouement -- which gave the Internet a welcome opportunity to coin the phrase "Bob-B-Que" -- this week's Walking Dead doesn't offer much reprieve.

It suggests a new direction for the show going forward; nothing drastic or anything -- I'm sure we'll still spend a lot of time with sweaty people being sad about all those ambulatory corpses. But it establishes a different tone.

Were there any surprises here? Yes, but not the kind we've come to expect.

We keep priming ourselves for another "Rick, you IDIOT" session in front of the TV only to find ourselves having a wholly unexpected fist-pumping reaction.

If the premiere, and now "Four Walls and a Roof", are any indication, the fifth season is all about keeping things moving.

"Four Walls and a Roof" kept the Walking Dead's Season 4 streak alive and well -- though cracks are beginning to show in the veneer.

Overall, it feels like things are moving right along, looking not to drag things out, and it makes me both curious and excited where The Walking Dead Season 5 might be headed.

The Walking Dead loses some of its bite when it becomes predictable.
