the-walking-dead-season-6

Episode: 609
Airdate: February 14, 2016
Directed by: Greg Nicotero
Showrunner: Scott M. Gimple
Written by: Seth Hoffman (episode); Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard, Tony Moore (graphic novels); Frank Darabont (creator)

After a serious downturn in episode quality over the latter half of Part A of this season, I was beginning to lose faith in Messrs. Gimple, Nicotero, and co. And then they give me tonight’s episode. From an opening that absolutely blew me away, through a second act that just ramped things up, and ending with a third act that put nearly everyone we know and love to watch in grave peril, this episode had it all. Having just finished watching the episode twice, I can’t say for certain whether this is due primarily to what I just saw, or if the poor showing of the last several episodes is having an undue effect on my opinion, but this felt like one of the best episodes I’ve seen of TWD ever. Time and further viewings may adjust this initial impression, but I suspect it won’t fall far short of that assessment. Click through for my full review.

Episode: 516
Airdate: March 29, 2015

Tonight marks the end of another season of The Walking Dead, a date that always seems to come just a little too soon for fans. And that goes even more so for this season, a season which, heading into the finale, is the best since Season 1 – perhaps even just a little bit better. But in order for Season 5 to be the triumph it’s been setting up to be, it’s final act needs to deliver; after all, there won’t be any more TWD until October, so the events tonight will, by their nature, set the tone for the kind of anticipation fans will feel in the long interim months. And tonight, they did just that – they delivered. Click through for my full review and episode synopsis – it’s a big one, almost 6000 words; the tl/dr is at the bottom, along with a poll regarding who you’re most likely to see as a role-model in the zombie apocalypse. Enjoy!
