Critic reviews for Time for After
"Time for After" has probably the most important plot development in Season 8 since the premiere, so why does it feel like such a shrug?
Things took a surprise turn for the better thanks to an episode packed with action, engaging twists and - just so we know it's still the Walking Dead - first-rank silliness.
I feel like a broken record: "I understand that they have to hit certain story beats, and they have a specific number of episodes to fill, but can't they do a better job of filling them?"
An episode that managed to be tense, interesting, and extremely aggravating, mostly all at once.
Thankfully, it's slightly better than expected. Only slightly, but it's a definite improvement on the drawn out, yawn fest that was episode 6.
