Critic reviews for Consumed

The Walking Dead has always excelled at episodes like this -- quiet, atmospheric hours with a lot of zombie-killing and snatches of dialogue that say more than an introspective soliloquy could.

While it still seems like a bizarre climax to structure the first half of the season around, "Consumed" proved a reasonably strong survivor's tale overall.

How can we complain about the show giving its two most popular characters an entire hour of just being those characters for us? Call it fan service, but it worked.

This week's episode of The Walking Dead should stand out as it features two of the show's best characters, a pair who internalize a lot and are the outsiders in a group of outsiders.

All that wide open space and concrete set the teeth on edge in a way that hearkened back to season one of The Walking Dead.

Carol is not so sure we're allowed to save people in this zombie-ridden hellscape, and Daryl, in his own quiet way, is trying to make sure she can at least save herself.
