After spending a lot of time, we finally get going
16 March 2015 | by seshasai-trisSee all my reviews

A good episode finally where the start the ball rolling, in sorts.

Rick and his group have taken up all the jobs, three episodes later, they get used to the place. The thing that makes this episode unique, is the screenplay. It takes us through most of the characters, builds them in process and also progressing the story. It really gets thick and interesting when you show story around many characters in 40 minutes, than focus on a group of them.

In this episode we get to see the characters of Eugene, Abraham, Carol, Glen, Father Gabriel, Sasha and the sons of Deanna.

There is very little that took 1 star off 10. At one point we (audience) might stop liking 1. finding Walkers in a store 2. a few deaths in an episode 3. main characters thinking 4. finding a place to stay 5. destroying the same place around season end 6. walking on roads ( day/night) 7. Walker road blocks with less resources in backpacks

Because the above factors (deaths, walker attacks, scheming) at one point will become monotonic/humdrum. So the directors/screen writers have to give the audience something.

nonetheless, this episode shines a lot better than it's two predecessors in screenplay and narration and has set up a lot of potential for the upcoming ones.

My Rating - 8.7/10
