Critic reviews for First Time Again
Carter the unstoppable squawking machine might be a pain, but he's right.
A good deal of the episode is given watching the plan unfold, and it's all suitably tense and exciting.
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.
Nowhere near as explosive as last year's premiere. More considered, more thoughtful, it employs action only in fits and starts... the show's other hallmarks - exquisite tension, scintillating performances - are very much present and correct.
