This week’s mid-season finale is about the closest we’re ever going to get to a Walking Dead Christmas Special. Doesn’t that suggestion just fill your heart with joy?
We’ve almost reached the halfway mark of The Walking Dead’s fourth season, and this week’s episode offers a somewhat bleak hint of what is to come.
This week’s story is essentially a well-disguised filler episode, offering a break from the intensity of the on-going prison drama to present us with a compelling character study of one of the series’ most fascinating villains.
Let it be said that no one could accuse AMC’s zombie series of being a programme that plays it safe.
I never thought I would say these words, but it feels good to be back in prison. The series opener of The Walking Dead’s fourth year is undoubtedly slow, but like the groaning corpses that litter its landscapes, it catches up to you and leaves you terrified before the end.
