Critic Reviews for Forget

The culture shock of last week has passed, so now it's just a matter of seeing just how complacent the residents of Alexandria are. Turns out the answer is "pretty damn complacent."

It felt fitting that the episode first aired on International Women's Day: Carol is proving to be one of the most complex, interesting female characters on TV right now.

I find it interesting that Michonne, of all people, is eager to assimilate in Alexandria.

The Walking Dead is back to its old tricks in terms of subtle symbolism (that letter A!) and careful plotting, and the change is palpable.

"Forget" did a great job confronting the simultaneous appeal and the danger of the safe zone, with Rick, Daryl, Carol, and Sasha each encountering various pitfalls of the fantasy life they're trying to settle into.

Watching everyone adjust to life inside affords some of the most fascinating character work the series has ever undertaken.

The survivors continue to explore life in Alexandria, but not all of them are having an easy time of it in this week's episode of The Walking Dead.

Really, I love how disconcerting and disorienting this new location has become for the survivors.

Seeing the group try to adjust to something resembling pre-apocalyptic life, and particularly seeing Carol role play as the mouse she used to be, put a bounce into the proceedings.

I think what really hit me tonight was how deeply strange all of these people are within the confines of civilization.

"Forget" was another fine episode that made for an intriguing look at our outsiders stepping back in.

Well, they certainly weren't pussyfooting around with subtle metaphors in this episode, were they?
