Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
The survivors have spent a difficult winter moving from place to place trying to stay clear of the walkers and constantly looking for food. Lori is now at the advanced stage of her pregnancy but it's obvious that she and Rick aren't getting along. When they notice a prison in the distance, Rick convinces them it may be just what they're looking for with the possibility of food and medicine being available. They have to fight their way in, eliminating a large number of walkers but they soon settle into a secure prison block. Several of them set off to explore the prison but are soon surrounded by walkers. They aren't the only survivors in the prison either. Written by
Rick and his group of survivors have braved the winter and got through it, so now they're all looking for a new refuge, as the farm is no longer an option. After raiding one last house but gathering no real supplies, they find a large, seemingly empty prison, save for the many walkers stumbling around outside. After taking out all of the walkers, Rick leads the group inside the prison to take up temporary residence.
After the slow and tedious season 2, some may have begun to lose interest in The Walking Dead. Anyone that powered through to season 3 will be glad they did. The premier of the third season of AMC's critically acclaimed zombie survival drama is an action-packed one at that, and definitely one of the most entertaining episodes of the entire series, perhaps only rivaled by the pilot. Characters seem less irritating than they were in season 2, and the pace is vastly improved. Add to that exciting action scenes and a shocking ending and you have an excellent episode.
A great premier of what is sure to be a fantastic third season of The Walking Dead. 9 out of 10.
