I had concluded the previous post in the hope that this episode was not just a Flash in the dark. I'm afraid so: This episode is slow, boring, repetitive and focused on characters of which there is never interested or that they've lost any appeal. All of whom last week were absent and whose was absolutely felt the lack.
Honor. This is the title of the Mid-Season premiere of The Walking Dead and it was easy to understand who and what she meant after the surprising and disappointing twist of Mid-Season finale that much controversy aroused during break.
For the first time I have not watched The Walking Dead during the airing of 21. And not because I couldn't miss the final of GFVip (the sooner the 21,45 There was no hope began), but because it was easy to guess that would have been the umpteenth episode boring. I was wrong and the opening led by Ilary Blasi was the right rewards.
This episode is a competition to see who takes the worst decision, at the end it's hard to decide who to give the not coveted. Surely no one removes the writers, responsible for everything we're seeing with immense effort in weeks (not to say for months). We jump from one place to another for 40 minutes without anything happening to relevant, no step forward, on the contrary, If you do not turn on themselves, It is much more likely to jump back.
Finally Negan! Since it appeared on our screens, each episode of The Walking Dead which is lacking seems to be missing something. Especially after those disappointing that we left behind, his return is a breath of fresh air. Not all of the episodes are devoted to a single character were much, but this is the best of the season without difficulty.
The first three minutes are enough to frame this episode as nearly identical to the previous two. Motivational speeches, gunshots at random, forced moments of reflection. It's a bit like press replays in three weeks. Seguo The Walking Dead da quando ha debuttato, I defended when was criticized in the second season, I proudly bought the action figure of Daryl and I'm sorry that things are so, but the negative parable seems to have no break and no end.
The return of The Walking Dead marks the achievement of an important milestone for the show at AMC: the series won the episode number 100. Remember when you started looking at it 8 years ago? Had debuted on Halloween night, the first season had only 6 episodes and never imagined that we would arrive at an altitude 8 seasons. A destination that is undoubtedly pleasure, but that poses with greater force the question with which we left in April, how much longer can last?
The foundations of the earlier episodes were not encouraging, the promo for "The First Day of the Rest of Your Life" on the other hand was a hotbed of tension can turn up the hype. The result reached by the Season Finale is a compromise between these conflicting feelings because overall it is a nice episode, with twist, scary moments and emotion. But perhaps he's missing something; something that cannot be because there was its building or just because they somehow need pull ahead until next season.
We left with "Not today" and we can easily repeat it this week – and in all probability with the life to come. Having made progress where it seemed impossible, The Walking Dead slows again with an episode where, Apart from the final minutes and a few words here and there, virtually nothing happens again. And besides, wouldn't even be possible considering the short timeframes covered and the fact that we're not looking 24.
