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.

But, as we've come to expect, a stellar episode of Dead is often followed by a few snoozers; the ups and downs of this current season have been real.

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