Critic reviews for Service

I'm afraid The Walking Dead may have bitten off more than it can chew by expanding its world so quickly. It should at least make more interesting use of its time.

The terrible thing [Rick's] holding becomes a constant reminder of his impotence and the uselessness of his anger. It's brilliant and subtle and devastating to watch.

If the episode had a message it was that sometimes the calm is more terrifying than the storm.

Andrew Lincoln really does put in some fine work at least, with notably limited expression at that, and "Service" reveals a very different side of Rick than we're used to seeing.

Did tonight's episode of "The Walking Dead" really need to be so long?

I'm a fan of Jeffrey Dean Morgan's performance as Negan on The Walking Dead, but we're quickly seeing that a little Negan goes a very long way.
