A knockout opener to The Walking Dead's sixth season, "First Time Again" has everything one would hope for - including intense plot development, entertaining character interplay, and more zombies than ever before.
A good deal of the episode is given watching the plan unfold, and it's all suitably tense and exciting.
Carter the unstoppable squawking machine might be a pain, but he's right.
Man plans, and God laughs. But I never thought his laugh would sound like a foghorn.
Robert Kirkman's zombie epic opens its sixth season with a bang, a 90-minute thrill ride of tension and carnage that throws its fans back into the troubled lives of the residents of Alexandria.
The premiere never lags completely, and the main problem -- taking care of the herd of walkers trapped in the quarry -- is a solid, and interesting, one.
Unlike in the real world, with its terrifying but hazily defined foes, the danger in The Walking Dead is always clear and present, and it wants to eat you.
"First Time Again" acts more as a checklist for what's going on, rather than a meaty 90-minute episode with a purpose.
The episode's unique style is brilliant for the episode's first half, but once viewers figure out what exactly is going on, the allure starts to fade after the 30-minute mark.
It's an exceptionally intense opener, strong support that The Walking Dead has more bite than ever...
I loved pretty much everything about this episode, from the confusion of the opening scene to the black-and-white flashbacks... to the crazy zombie relocation plan, to ALL MORGAN ALL THE TIME.
"First Time Again," is both intensely riveting and creatively ambitious.
I'm still trying to take everything in after that 90-minute premiere, but that was one of the best episodes of The Walking Dead.
