Critic reviews for New Best Friends
Further evidence that the Walking Dead is finally serious about being a silly zombie romp. Long may it stagger forward in this vein.
Seen here, only a few years after the zombie apocalypse started, it all just seems ridiculous and contrived.
The high-stakes tension certainly returns in the 10th episode of AMC's The Walking Dead, Season 7. The regular players are featured - most of the ones we adore, in fact - and the narrative truly begins to take hold.
Two main plotlines run through "New Best Friends"... This gives the episode a bit of tonal whiplash, since the Rick stuff is downright goofy... while Daryl and Carol's scenes are emotionally fraught. Still, both storylines are satisfying in their own way.
Nothing is necessarily going to undo the dreariness of those first eight episodes, "New Best Friends" still feels like the first in a long while that The Walking Dead episodes inspires more curiosity than dread.
