Critic Reviews for First Time Again

A good deal of the episode is given watching the plan unfold, and it's all suitably tense and exciting.

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.

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.
