"Something They Need" overcomes an uneven arc with humor, an upbeat pace, and a classic Walking Dead cliffhanger.
Tara ... is just purely funny. Even when she's not being overtly jokey, as in this episode, which involves her in a deadly serious plot, she approaches the world with an offbeat tentativeness that never fails to bring a smile to my face.
an enjoyable enough episode with some great-looking zombies and decent tension
It's the penultimate episode, so it's time to check in with just about everybody (the Kingdom excluded). That makes "Something They Need" a busy episode, but not a particularly compelling one.
As for Episode 15, "Something They Need," director Michael E. Satrazemis and writer Angela Kang do a nice job at tying up a few loose ends and keeping the uncertainty to a minimum.
My biggest issue with the show has always been that it has so often given us protagonists who seem scarcely better than the antagonists, if that.
That refusal to make him an occasional villain nearly sinks tonight's episode, "Something They Need."
This was a decent setup-type of an episode, and it was good to get some real movement from some of the characters.
It's still just a TV show that only takes up 45 minutes of my life each week-but the qualified misery comes from the fact that its ineffectiveness is so obvious and so simple, and it recurs with dulling regularity.
The amount of Negan and his use was the kind I prefer and the end goes for another classic cliffhanger moment.
While "Something They Need" isn't even the best episode of TWD in the last few weeks, it's a great example of how good the show can be when it's not pussyfooting around its storylines. Things moved VERY quickly tonight.
