my thoughts on the episode and the show in general.
25 November 2013 | by (Sofia, Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

1 star for an episode dedicated to a psychopath i don't want to see anymore. And if those two girls turn out to be lesbians... i don't like them either. i don't like the whole new group. Why the people i like always die, and the people i don't, have whole episodes telling their story like i care. i like the show in general. And i vote for it with max stars. But this episode was awful. i liked the first and second seasons most, where they were on the run, and their enemies were zombies, not people. Now my favorite group is settled, which i don't mind, but if thats the case, make them grow in strength, wisdom and love, and may they renovate the prison and build some cool stuff in the yard (the process would be interesting)... make improvements in all aspects. security, aesthetics...everything. I'd like to see development, progress throughout the series. And then some wise and thoughtful conversations between the characters. I want more meaning in what the people say to each other. Like in "lost". I like Hershel's thoughts though. He's wise. I really like the show, don't get me wrong.

p.s. what makes Batman begins better (for me) than the second batman movie is the process of a man becoming something else. in a better way. And that element is repeating in the third movie, which is my favorite, though. THE RISING! He had to become batman all over again. Progress is what makes movies interesting for me. In your show there isn't progress anymore. the characters have achieved the best, and now they're fighting to keep it. And everything is going wrong all the time. they barely get it right, and then something else goes twice as wrong. And everything is repeating.
