Exciting format, boring dialogs, questionable acting, John Bernthal on fire, disturbing Shane, dumb behavior, unbalanced production, Glenn bless you
31 October 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

The ending at the beginning. It's a formula that often makes a story more exciting. This time it was mostly about Shane and I liked how his dangerous and action-driven quest in the night was mirrored by the more psychological and emotional arc featuring Rick and the others. However I thought his dialogs with Lori would never end as they seemed rehashed. Moreover I'm not really convinced by Andrew Lincoln and Sarah Wayne Callies as leads. Their couple lacks the chemistry required to make us really care for them. It's not the first time I point out the issue but this time it was magnified by Jon Bernthal impressive skills. Shane just had a new layer to his wicked persona and after almost shooting his best friend in the woods I was really wondering what the writers would come up with. They didn't disappoint and his arc was almost shocking. As for his sidekick I wonder how it's possible to be fat in a world infested by walkers.

For once Deryl and his gang disappointed me. Their dumb behavior didn't make sense and was reminiscent of scream or bad horror movies. Moreover it wasn't scary and overall felt like an awkward way to feature them when the episode should have only focused on Carl. As for the production I didn't like the night scenes visual because it wasn't as polished as the sequences shot in the house. They could have used a better or creative lighting and probably some post processing. The image was just too cold and lacked the immersion factor the show is known for. Applying a film grain overlay and twisting the editing would have made things way more entertaining. Hopefully more Glenn couldn't be more welcome because to tell the truth I have missed him since Guts. He's such an under exploited character ! His obvious connection with the girl could also lead to some empathic romance and intense moments.
