User Reviews

This is where it really starts...
20 October 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After an ever-so-slightly disappointing first episode, this one was much better and got me into the series much more. Whilst the first episode was slow and somewhat dull, despite having a brilliant atmosphere, this second episode seriously picks up the pace, making things far more interesting and enjoyable.

Situations become far more intense with more action and more interesting plot devices, great camera work and the introduction of some very interesting new characters. We get to know Rick a little better, too, advancing the series furthermore.

Seeing this second episode has got me very excited for the rest of the series, and I am very much looking forward to episode three.
