Critic reviews for The Same Boat

The show's primary stance is usually 'Rick is always right,' so a serious effort to undermine that might generate some kind of backlash. I personally think the show's much stronger for approaching this material and hopefully, the audience agrees.

I actually liked that we spent so much time with the new characters - Maggie establishing a bond as a (potential) mother, Carol with Paula as a fellow spirit that was set free by the apocalypse. It's exactly why they were both so upset by what happened.

If The Walking Dead just full-on turned into The Carol Show, would anyone really mind?

I appreciate how subtly the writers are taking us on this journey with the characters.

It's strange that even a bottle episode of sorts couldn't keep up the character work.

A female-dominated bottle episode that happens to be one of The Walking Dead's best all season, and a surprisingly introspective look at motherhood, faith, brutality, and the ever-blurrier line between the good guys and the bad.
