The Walking Dead - Season 5, Episode 10 - Rotten Tomatoes


Critic Consensus: Though a necessary breather from the prior episode's climactic tragedy, "Them" is a slower-than-expected demonstration of unsubtle verbosity.

Critic reviews for Them

No new ground is going to be broken here just because we're in Virginia not Georgia and everyone is more tired.

Slow, quiet and sad was very much the order of the day on this week's instalment of The Walking Dead - albeit slow, quiet and sad interspersed with bursts of frenzied zombie killing.

Things got bleak quickly. Like, staring-into-the-void-as-it-stares-back-at-you bleak, Nietzsche off his Zoloft and riding shotgun with Rust Cohle bleak.

This entire episode could have been cut down to maybe 10 minutes tops and summed up as follows: Everyone's sad and thirsty and hungry.

"Them" certainly suffered for asking us to endure such slow, shuffling movement from its characters and plot, but a larger point on reaching one's lowest should nicely set up what's to come.

It wasn't just repetitive because everyone walked and talked, it was repetitive because it did the same thing the show has always done and didn't offer anything new.
