The Walking Dead: Season 8 (2017 - 2018)



Critic Consensus: The Walking Dead's eighth season energizes its characters with some much-needed angst and action, though it's still occasionally choppy and lacking forward-moving plot progression.

Rick, and his band of survivors... aren't passive victims anymore; they're active and fighting back. It's the way longtime fans are used to seeing them, and it feels good.

This new season of The Walking Dead should be more fun to watch almost by default.

The AMC blockbuster has given viewers a welcome respite from getting kicked in the teeth, and that's made it much more enjoyable.

Well-done, but then TWD is always well-done. What's missing is the thrill of surprise, or the shock of surprise. "Mercy" at least offers a hint that one may be coming.

The ninth season next fall is inescapable, but these zombies do not have more to give. [Full Review in Spanish]

On the whole, season eight was a major disappointment, mainly because they opted to go off on their own and deliver an All-Out War that was lacking just about everything that had made the arc such an exciting read in the first place.

Now, [most of] the characters are becoming as brain-dead as the zombies around them.

Honestly, as a villain, how are people going to take you seriously when you talk literal nonsense? Consider it food for thought.

Oct 26, 2017 | Full Review…

Let's be frank: The series is clearly in decline.

If the first episode is anything to go by, it looks like Walking Dead finally has its mojo back.
