Critic Reviews for Monsters

There's still some action to be had, but it's about as exciting as watching paint dry.

I love Gregory...I don't know what it is about him that always makes me smile.

I don't recall The Walking Dead ever being so direct and overt about asking whether compassion has a place in a world like this, if there's a value in showing mercy to those that would do you harm.

I'm glad that the attack on the Saviors that spanned three episodes has seemingly come to an end, and now we can focus on the aftermath and fallout.

Although it's fairly faint praise at this point, I think we can call "Monsters" the best, or at least the most entertaining, episode of The Walking Dead's season 8 so far.

We're not sure how long this All-Out War(TM) is scheduled to last, but if nothing else, it's entertaining enough to watch unfold.

The question in Nov. 5th's episode has been asked many times before and with much better character work.

I love you, Ezekiel, but enough with the speeches already.

The Walking Dead offered up its best episode of the season Sunday night, giving us some decent fight scenes and shoot-outs and raising the tension up a notch.

For its constant death fixation, this series has handled the topic carelessly and clumsily in its new season.
